It came from Japan to conquer the world — and no, we're not talking about Godzilla. This is the Toyota Land Cruiser, a 4x4 that's been everywhere you can go with four wheels, and even a few places you can't. Donut gives you the scoop on everything you need to know about Toyota's famous offroader if you plan on putting one in your garage.
The Bugatti Veyron set the standard for the hypercar craze. Over 1,000 horsepower from a 16-cylinder, quad-turbocharged motor reaches the ground through all four wheels to a top speed of over 260 MPH. The car is an amazing technical achievement — and watching how it's hand-assembled reinforces what it takes to make such an amazing automobile.
From the 125 S in 1947 to the FXX K Evo, Ferrari's passion for automobiles has been on display on and off the track. Almost every Ferrari is an icon, but this video hits the highlights of the most important models in the company's 70-plus year history.
It's changed a lot for having changed so little, but the Porsche 911 is still the gold-standard for sports cars. Easily the most accomplished car of all time, there hasn't been anywhere where the 911 hasn't succeeded. Donut Media gives you all the info you need on the 911, from beginning to the latest version.

While driver Johan Schwartz was cruising around the track, Matt Mullin and Matt Butts would refuel the M5 from another M5, while in motion. This moving pit-stop allowed for the car to keep going and set the bar for a seemingly unbeatable record.

With the AI revolution already beginning and autonomous vehicles almost here, cars still look like... cars. Architecture firm oiio studio wants to change that, with a radical dissection of the automobile as we know it. Breaking it down into it's essential, people-moving parts, oiio imagines a vehicle that does exactly what it needs to. They also threw in a bonus shot of a Blade Runner-style Los Angeles at the end too.
This two-story Hot Wheels track is not only our childhood dreams come true but maybe our adult ones too. Measuring in at 141 feet long, the track starts at a bedroom window and travels down a wooden bridge. From there, the car twists and loops at an average speed of 3.8 miles per hour throughout the entire backyard. Because it is so elaborate, just one view wouldn't do. The run was filmed at three angles, including an ultra-slick first-person view.
The 2000s was the death knell of the supercar. Once upon a time, supercars were cramped, uncomfortable, impossible to see out of, and temperamental. Then came the 00s, and suddenly, you could drive a 600+ hp car in the city like it was a Honda Accord. Before the outrageous hypercars of the 2010s, here were the best supercars of the 00s.
The Slow Mo Guys know the way to our hearts — through slow-motion destruction. It never seems to get old. So in their latest satisfying video, the guys head to a junkyard to send a four-ton wrecking ball through a few cars, filming the whole thing at just 1,000 frames per second.
Racing is expensive, but if you have the cash, anything is possible. The Whittington brothers were part of the team that won the 1979 24 Hours of LeMans, but how they ended up there is a classic 70s story. Rumors of the brothers pot smuggling and paying off officials are nearly canon, from LeMans to NASCAR to the Indianapolis 500. John Ficarra tells the story of the time the Whittington brothers went racing.
Last year, Colin Furze blew the mind of every Star Wars fanatic when he built an almost life-size AT-AT. This year, he pledged his total allegiance to the Dark Side by constructing a full-size replica of Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer. The fighter measures in at 46 feet long, 23 feet wide, and 14 feet tall and is made completely of steel. As if that isn't enough, he enlisted James Bruton to also make a fully-functioning BB-9E.
The 80s gave us the supercar. The 90s took the supercar and pushed it to the limits of what was capable in something legal to drive on public roads. From limited-production homologation specials to the still-awesome McLaren F1, the 90s turned out cars that can still hold their own today.
Supercars have never been subtle, but the 80s saw some of the wildest examples ever made, from companies as traditionally conservative as Mercedes and BMW. Everyone knows the Countach, Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959, but lesser-known modes like the BMW M1 and Ruf CTR "Yellow Bird" raised the bar for street cars to another level. Donut counts down their 10 best from the decade of excess.
For all but the most dedicated audiophiles, speakers are something to hide away. You won't mind leaving the Tivoli Audio Sphera Speaker out in the open. Hidden inside its slim, circular hardwood body is a 3-inch, long-throw full-range driver that works with a hidden bass port to deliver full sound. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth let it receive signals without any wires, and the optional rechargeable battery can get rid of the power cord for up to eight hours at a time, whether it's sitting on the included stand or hanging on a wall. It connects easily with other Tivoli gear to create a stereo or whole-room system, and is available in black or walnut.
All the Gran Tourismo kids remember the Toyota Supra — or at least its 1987-1994 editions. For all its affordable swagger, the Supra had much humbler beginnings as an option on the Celica platform. Donut takes you all the way back to where on of the most iconic cars of the 90s started.
Through the scenic Dolomites of Northern Italy, two friends run freshly built Kawasaki Kz400s down the winding mountain roads. Joe and Stefan are childhood friends, and recently finished building their bikes together and celebrated with a run through the beautiful mountain vistas.
From its beginning as the hardscrabble war hero to its current incarnation as a capable-yet-civilized everyday driver, the Jeep has evolved like few other cars. Donut captures every stage in the life of the American icon over the last 77 years.
Eight years in development and Google's Waymo is ready to introduce its self-driving cars to the world. While they aren't quite ready for the public, they're extremely close. This demo shows a car in action and what the future of drive will look like.
When he's not making movies, Keanu Reeves is indulging in his real passion — making motorcycles. Together with co-founder Gard Hollinger, they start Arch Motorcycle Company. More than just a custom shop, Arch uses big v-twin engines set in custom frames and bodywork, with each bike tailored to its individual customer. With a radical new model on the horizon, Arch showed off the latest in VR and computer-controlled manufacturing techniques, along with some old-school hand craftsmanship in this tour of their facility.
It was the car that created it's own category — the pony car. The Ford Mustang took the chassis from the Ford Falcon and draped it in beautiful two-door, long hood-short deck bodywork that was the template others would follow. While GM's Camero and Firebird took a hiatus or disappeared completely over the years, the Mustang has never gone out of production. Here's how the original pony car has changed over the last 50-plus years.
It takes a deft touch to pick up bottles — when you're using a Sennebogen 830 scrap handler. The folks at DeBoss Garage showed off some serious heavy equipment skills at V&R Recycling, delicately picking up glass bottles and putting them back in a box. Obviously, the operator wasn't emptying the bottles himself — machinery this heavy and alcohol are a bad mix. Enjoy heavy equipment responsibly.
On a lonely stretch of Nevada highway, Koenigsegg smashed the record for the fastest street-legal car ever made. The Agera RS averaged 278 mph over two runs, with a max top speed of 284 mph — leaving the previous record-holder, the Bugatti Chiron, wondering what happened. Ride along with the Agera RS on this incredible top speed run, and then watch the same car drive to get lunch in this video.
The Peking to Paris Rally spans over 8,000 miles from China to France. It's a test of man, machine, where anything can go wrong — and often does. Open to cars from 1974 or older, first-time drivers Vincent and Jean entered the rally with the goal of promoting the Asian University for Women and chose a Chevrolet Special Deluxe. This is their story of an epic journey of a lifetime.
Chalk one up for humanity: One of the best riders to ever straddle a motorcycle embarrassed Yamaha's smart-mouthed Motobot around Thunderhill Raceway Park. 6-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi beat the robot's time by over 30 seconds, making sure that the AI uprising is still a little ways off. Go humans.
The Honda Civic is the small car. Honda kicked off the economy car revolution in 1972, making the now-familiar front-wheel-drive hatchback configuration an industry standard. While the Civic was successful, Honda didn't rest on their laurels, continuing to refine the platform, pushing it into the realms of performance once reserved for larger cars with twice as much motor.
Five different locations across the globe. Five different cars, two which are new to Ken and one all-new ground-up build, supposedly on the level of the insane Hoonicorn. Ken Block and his team are pulling out all the stops for the 10th edition of Gymkhana. Before the release in 2018, get a taste of what's to come in this teaser as well as an Amazon series following all of the behind-the-scenes action.
It became a legend among the Gran Toursimo kids of the 90s, found a whole new audience in The Fast & the Furious movies in the early 00s, and finally came to the United States in 2007. The Nissan Skyline GT-R has been a performance staple in the Nissan lineup since 1969, born from the humble Skyline sedan and now a supercar icon.
Keep the wheel straight and smash the throttle — driving a car on a top speed run seems pretty straightforward. But it isn't. In 1997, Royal Air Force pilot Andy Green piloted the Thrust SSC into the record books, becoming the first vehicle to break the sound barrier on land. Andy talks about what it takes to drive a car powered by two jet engines across the desert floor at over 763 MPH.
