Ever wonder what goes on behind closed doors at a dealership after dropping your car off for service? In normal cases, your car is well-maintained and treated with respect. However, once in a blue-moon, your car may fall into the wrong hands. Hands that decide to post a joyride, starring your car, on YouTube.
Here’s footage, recorded by two techs at a Canadian dealership, that shows them taking a Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 Couple Black Series out for a “test run." If you’re not familiar with the C63, it’s a beast designed for the Autobahn. Beneath it’s hood lies a precision engineered, 510-horsepower motor. This, in the wrong hands, is a disaster waiting to happen.
Luckily, no damage was done to the car or to others. The video does have the Mercedes-Benz community buzzing for the sheer stupidity of the stunt, and for red lining the motor so long. Check out the video above for yourself.
Remember the Fuzz-buster? No? Am I dating myself be referencing 80’s tech here? Well, anyways - welcome to the next generation of police-evading technology. Escort recently announced its newest model in radar detectors: The Redline. With the Redline you get a substantially increased radar-detection envelope - 13 miles according to the press release - and can now snub your nose at the law with impunity. It ships in August and is available for $499.95, a mere pittance to pay for the privelege to personally test the theory of Natural Selection - don’t let cops get in your way from attaining that ultimate pinnacle of street-racing cred: your very own white-cross on the side of I-95!

We have all made some of those traffic errors and gotten tickets that might have been ignored with the proper bribery. The Anti-Ticket Donut is designed for those occasions. When the police officer asks you to produce your registration and license, reach right into your glove compartment and offer him/her the chocolate ($8.75) or sprinkled ($9.95) treat-in-a-tin. Of course, the donut is made of plastic, but we figure you can always stop at Krispy Kreme for the real thing if you are heading towards a known speed trap. Besides, it would make a great gift for your uncle, Chief Wiggum.
