When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world.
Here’s a handful of the photos, articles, videos or social media posts that most caught our eye last week. Some of them are brand new, others have been online for a while.
Enjoy them – just not too much, okay?
1. This insane video of someone jumping a Lamborghini Urus over a Lamborghini Aventador
You may recall that a few weeks back we ran a story about a YouTuber who was facing criminal charges in the US after driving a Ram 1500 TRX through a natural habitat.
Now, that some YouTuber is at it again – this time doing more insane stunts, but with far more expensive vehicles.
Hyssong is at pains to emphasise the fact the stunt was done by "sort of professionals" on a "closed course".
If you want to watch it, the stunt takes place at around the 10:20 mark in the video below – we won't spoil the outcome for you.
2. These hot hatch-themed hot sauces
Tabasco devotee? Sriracha lover? Cholula fan? No matter your chosen brand or flavour, there are plenty of hot sauce addicts out there.
And given you're a CarAdvice reader, it's probably safe to assume you're a lover of the hot hatch too.
Our question to you is: Why not combine the two? That's the thinking that inspired a small Los Angeles company to launch its Hot Hatch Hot Sauce.
"The name comes from our love of cars and an opportunity to combine that with our love of food," the company's official website explains.
"Much like these cars (that we love) our sauce has a flavor profile that goes well with any cuisine making every meal just a little more fun."
Currently, there are three flavours available: Mk2, The Zonker and Hot Hatch Mk1.
But, bizarrely, this wasn't the only automotive-themed hot sauce we stumbled upon this week.
To do so, they collaborated with Sean Evans, host of Hot Ones – a YouTube channel that sees famous guests try to stomach flaming-hot chilli sauces – to create a condiment that supposedly captures the essence and behind-the-wheel feel of the new car.
Car-themed condiments are the new black – you heard it here first.
3. This Honda x Seiko watch collaboration
Regardless, consider your very niche wishes granted with this Seiko x Honda collaboration which has produced the world's first GPS solar watch, the Seiko Astron, in partnership with the Honda E.
It's all about "sophisticated design with seamlessly connected surfaces, eliminating edges as much as possible" – and you can even swap out the watch's existing black strap for a fabric strap that matches the interior finishes of the car.
Only 300 of the Honda E-themed Astron have been produced, and buyers can get their hands on one for 594,000 Yen – or roughly AU$7106.
4. This article on the most common car myths
While we're fans of a scientific study, we have room in our hearts for a somewhat un-scientific investigation as well.
This week, the folks over at The Drive asked their readers to list the automotive myths that, for whatever reason, people still seem to believe.
The original discussion took place over in the heated comments section of this article, but writer James Gilboy decided to break out the three main myths that kept appearing on people's lists.
- Old cars are sturdier, and therefore safer (CarAdvice's Justin Narayan touches on this topic in his op-ed 'Old cars belong in museums')
- Idling burns less gas than stopping and starting
- Loud pipes save lives
What do you think, are these myths you've spotted around the tracks too? Let us know in the comments section.
5. This Frankenstein-like mash-up of a BMW E30 3 Series and a Toyota Tacoma ute
Behold, a 2001 Toyota Tacoma with the front fascia of a 1987 BMW E30 325i.
This piece of art (?) was created by students from a tech education centre in Alabama and, to be honest, we are surprised by how much we don't hate it.
The Punisher skull details really make it.
