Motor1.com sits down with one of the world's top stunt drivers. It's a dream job — spinning, sliding, jumping, and crashing cars on the sets of the biggest film and TV productions and in front of live audiences all over the world. Chris Morena is one man who is living that dream. Morena's credits include the fourth Transformers film and the famous final episode of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, but it is as one of the world's leading stunt drivers where the New York native made his name. He began his career in the 1990s, training in Connecticut, before becoming a part of the touring Hollywood Stunt Show that was backed by Toyota, and later Ford. 'I worked nine seasons with Toyota and then Ford, and literally worked from the ground up,' Morena recalled.

That includes tossing a $3.4 million hypercar out of a skyscraper. The upcoming eighth installment of the Fast and Furious film franchise, The Fate of the Furious , hits theaters on April 14, 2017.

That’s all hypothetical, of course. £ 148,786,000, or $185,625,413, while Furious 7 sees the most serious damage to buildings and cars on screen. The destroyed Lykan Hypersport alone cost $3.4 million, making it the single most expensive car destroyed throughout all the films. … [Read more...] about Fast and Furious Film Franchise Caused Over $500 Million In Damages

Whatever this is, it sure has a big wing. [UPDATE, February 8] Italdesign has dropped yet another teaser for its Geneva-bound premiere, which shows the Italian flag motif. Italdesign took the wraps off the Zerouno coupe at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and chopped off its roof a year later at the same event in Switzerland to introduce the Zerouno Duerta . For the 89 th edition of the show held in the most populous city of the Romandy, the niche marque owned by Audi will introduce a new mysterious model.
