The Big Bad Auto Blog Blooms!

Some friend of The Big Bad Auto Blog managed to help us build an e-mail subscriber base, so we finally have a new agenda. Expect great content and video, special offers and opportunities to save on car parts, simple or major project!

If you are in Florida and would like to have us shoot an amazing video of your car or souped up truck, leave a comment on the most recent post and introduce yourself. The video will be posted to our site(s) Big Bad Auto Blog (here), YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, and more. You are free to use it however you like.

If you are a member or organizer of a car club and would like to do a group event, please contact us. At present this applies only to Central Florida due to travel and time limitations. We hope to build photo crews in other cities over time, however, so check back every so often for updates!

When we say some friend above, we really mean it. We don’t know who to thank, exactly, but whoever you may be, get in touch!

Thanks for reading The Big Bad Auto Blog and Very Happy Driving to you all!

2017 Audi R8 Coupe: Price – Engine – Specs Audi USA

The Audi R8 for 2017.
A head turner in red! The Audi R8 for 2017.

We at BBAB are not Audi affiliates! This is just a fun way to share some info about a cool car coming our way. Stylish and quck, it maintains the R8’s status as an Audi super car. The sleek sweep-back and those giant side scoops still look great. The giant grills under the lights look tougher than good. We would like some space between the lens and the grill.

Audi says:

Designed to exhilarate, the 2017 Audi R8 Coupe blends explosive power and an exotic presence. This is performance engineered to its fullest.

Bugatti Vision GT – World Debut in Frankfurt

A Sampling

The Bugatti Vision GT…

Besides BMW, another car maker, in what could be called Bavaria, also has a claim on superior technology. Recently, this German car maker has created a new monster. You likely cannot outrun it and if it catches you it will eat you!

Featured in this video is the World Debut of the Bugatti Vision GT. With Sixteen cylinders, about 1500 HP and a take-off speed of 0-60 in about 2 seconds, it screams to almost 300 mph. This is not our grandpa’s 300, nor grandma’s Boxter. Sorry!

The Veyron had been outdone to some degree by supercars from Pagani and Koenigsegg, which produce spaceships posing as Earth vehicles. Taking back the supercar title. and some of the spaceship look, the Vision GT combines the original supercar with a racing profile to produce a 290 (est.) mph precursor to the Chiron, scheduled for a 2018 debut.

Race car or street mod, the Bugatti Vision GT (Gran Turismo) is amazing to look at, loud, and unquestionably deadly to competition. Here are the basic specs. Going to the store will take on a completely new meaning!

Year:  2016
Make: Bugatti
Engine: W-16
Horsepower @ RPM: 1500 + –
Torque @ RPM: 1100 (est.)
Displacement: 8.0 L
0-60 time: 2.0 sec. + –
Top Speed: around 290 mph
