How To Stop A Prius

How To Stop A Prius

NSFW: An enraged man gives instructions on how to bring a 2010 Prius to a safe stop in case you lose the brakes or if the car suddenly accelerates. Creepy, hilarious and educational.

Concept: Toyota FT-86

Concept: Toyota FT-86

Smaller than a Nissan 370Z, Toyota’s FT-86 is a hot little 2+2 concept created with Subaru engineers; it sports a 2.0L boxer four with 6-speed manual, RWD and ADVICS brakes.
