What is a website on cool stuff without a page of cool cars. Nothing I tell ya… So check out these beauties…

Breathtaking Babes

Women are the most beautiful beings to inhabit this Earth. These babes just proves my point…

Cool Motorcycles

What is it about motorcycles that have always intrigued me? Is it the guttural growl when you rev that throttle? The beautiful, smooth curves of the machine? Or is it just having a 1000cc, 160HP monster tucked between your legs?

Gorgeous Guitars

“Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded.” Whatever you say Jimi, in the meantime, check out some of the coolest axes around.

Other Cool Stuff

Ok, you got me. Here’s a list of other cool stuff that cannot really be categorized under the other tabs… What better way than to name the category “Other Cool Stuff”. Ah, what creativity…

The S5 is powered by a 354-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 engine that spins out a peak 325 pound-feet of torque. Rear-biased Quattro all-wheel drive helps the wheels get traction no matter what the surface, and helps neutralize handling in spirited driving. With either transmission—six-speed manual or automatic, both a joy to drive—the Audi S5 gets to 60 mph in a mere 4.9 seconds and tops out at 155 mph. It’s the only car in its class to offer all-wheel drive with a manual transmission.

The optional Drive Select package enables drivers to tune suspension and steering response. The S5 has brilliant handling, with some occasionally harsh ride motions when you run into—well, run over—rough surfaces in mid-corner. Even with electronic power steering, it turns in flat and responds in a snap, though the feel is a little light. The 2009 S5’s braking is stellar.

The cockpit of the Audi S5 sports a tight feel, paired with a rather complex, busy array of controls on the dash. Audio system control buttons are numerous; the designers have opted for lots of shiny aluminum and chrome trim, so it’s not a restful place to meditate. The front seats cradle you in comfort, but the rear seats are merely tight and totally unable to accommodate adult legs. Thanks to the thick pillars and low roofline, visibility out the back while driving is pretty dismal. On the plus side, the trunk is large.

The 2009 Audi S8 doesn’t give up any conveniences in the name of high performance; expect everything that you would in a full-fledged luxury coupe, including power and heated everything, along with features like adaptive headlamps. Audiophiles will be very fond of the available Bang & Olufsen sound system.
