New Zealand-born photographer based in Sydney, Australia Simon Davidson has been photographing the sub-culture of burnout competitions in Australia. Davidson has become recognized as one of Australia’s leading photographers. Self-taught, he has created a successful career photographing a wide variety of subjects, creating content in both the advertising and editorial environments internationally.

With his Burnout series he recognizes beauty where it’s not immediately obvious. He finds expression in a car spinning its rear wheels with the single purpose of destruction. His images are superbly composed contemplations of the moment. Slices in time that hold the gaze with car, driver and movement balanced in an ideal expression of a sublime modernity.

“The guys and girls who compete in the various competitions across Australia are a passionate bunch. As a photographer I enjoy the visual feast of a superb and powerful car on the black of the burnout pad juxtaposed against the softness of the tire smoke. In reality a burnout is extremely loud and aggressive but in the photos there is a sense of calm… poetic in a way.” Simon Davidson

Nikita Golubev aka ProBoyNick targets dusty cars and vans in Moscow as part of an ongoing project called #dirtpainting. From a pair of hands clasped in prayer to an owl’s beady eyes glaring over a pair of van doors, Golubev’s creative expression knows no bounds. Sometimes he will ask drivers for permission before he gets to work – and other times he simply bestows the parked vehicles with his creations.

When he’s not drawing sharks into dusty truck doors using his fingers and paintbrushes, he’s a multimedia artist whose other works have centred around fine art, digital art, character and film design.

This car sold for $4.62 million dollars at a Gooding & Company auction recently. In terms of cars, it is what we call perfection and idealism. There were only 29 made… making it a little more desired than that Air Jordan riot shoe from a few months back. (via)

This is a really bad day.

We felt like Kyle Williams might be feeling the worst of days today, but this is something that also feels like a really bad day. If you walked out to your car in the morning and saw this, we would suggest a bit of a sleep-in to combat the tree upon your car. (via)

Car to buy: Audi A1 Sportback Five-Door

The car you drive shouldn’t matter, but if you are going to go for looks and a little bit of performance, we are going to say that this new Audi A1 Sportback Five-Door is going to be something to look out for. Sure, there are a lot of great things just in the way it looks, but at around $22,924, its cheaper than a Prius. And it doesn’t look like some odd fish tank.
