Ride at the Museum

Ride at the Museum

Koenigsegg Gemera

Koenigsegg Gemera

Only hypercar maker Koenigsegg could come up with a car that makes 1700bhp, but seats four. The plug-in hybrid’s electric motors makes 1100 of those horses, and a tiny 2.0L twin-turbo 3-cylinder engine somehow makes 600 horses. It’s also all-wheel drive, with rear wheel steering, and has enough room for carry-on luggage.

Bad Bluegrass

Bad Bluegrass

YouTube channel There I Ruined It is in the business of messing with popular songs and, well, ruining them by covering them in a totally inappropriate style. Their bluegrass reworking of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” is so wrong that it’s right. We also chuckled at their swing version of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.”
