Italdesign's Brivido Concept Leaves the Show Floor and Hits the Road

In contrast to the vast majority of impressive show car concepts that are either static or too fragile to be even touched, let alone be driven, the Italdesign Brivido sports coupe study is a fully functional model that was created to be enjoyed on the road.

Seen for the first time at the 2012 Geneva Auto Salon in March, the Brivido is a four-seater GT built around the platform and the 360hp V6 hybrid driveline of an unnamed VW Group model, with Road&Track magazine speculating that it could be that of the Porsche Panamera Hybrid.

The American publication had the unique opportunity to take the conceptual Gullwing-door sports car for a ride through the Alps. You can watch the drive for yourself in the video that follows below.

This is How the Nissan Juke-R looks on the Streets of Dubai at Night

Another day, another video of the production-intent Nissan Juke-R. After the release of a short film that tells the tale of the GT-R-powered crossover's race against a trio of exotic supercars, Nissan has now published two new videos of the Juke-R in the hands of the Nissan/Playstation GT Academy winner Lucas Ordoňez.

Ordoňez takes the 3.8-litre, 160mph (257km/h) Juke-R for a picturesque ride in and out of Dubai.

Earlier this month, Nissan announced that the Juke-R would be made available to buy in a very limited run on a build-to-order basis. The production models will be fitted with the improved 545hp V6 drivetrain and chassis of the MY12 GT-R (2013MY in North America).

Unmarked NYPD Police Car Chases and Pulls Over Bicyclist

We are not saying that police officers shouldn't pull over a bicyclist if the rider breaks the law, but it's really not that often that we see it happening, even more so on film.

According to the YouTube poster, the bicyclist ran through a red light at the intersection of 6th Avenue and West Houston Street and was caught by an unmarked New York Police Department Chevy Caprice sedan.

The bicyclist is said to have received a US$270 (€208) fine. Head past the break to watch the video.
