“But I’m a good driver.” You’ve probably heard people say that in the past as a reason why they can drive ‘faster’ (aka. more recklessly) than others without getting into an accident. We’re willing to bet the driver in this video thought just that.

Details about this clip, such as when and where it was filmed are unclear, but it has recently gone viral on Reddit and features a driver describing to his passenger(s) how to make high-speed lane changes on a highway while swerving through traffic. Before long, the ‘tutorial’ starts to go wrong.

For the first 30 seconds of the video, the driver slices his way through traffic without a care in the world and at times, is driving with just one hand on the steering wheel. However, at the 34-second mark, he attempts a lane change while carrying too much speed and the rear end of the car kicks out.

The driver attempts to correct the slide but is unable to keep the car under control. It ends up smashing into a concrete barrier on the side of the highway, setting off the airbags.

It’s unclear what happened after the video cut off, but we hope that no one was injured.

BMW has issued a recall in the United States about the M2 and M4 Coupe.

Mind you, only 21 units of both models are affected, namely one M4 and 20 M2s, and the reason is an error on the assembly line that saw the fuel injectors being installed without a damping component.

The latter is used to reduce vibration, and without it, the connection between the fuel line and fuel rail could be damaged over time. This might lead to a fuel leak, which, in the presence of an ignition source, would increase the risk of a fire, although BMW is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.

According to the NHTSA, the issue was discovered on October 15 by a worker during the engine assembly process. A review was initiated, and after further evaluations, they decided to announce a voluntary safety recall one week later.

The only M4 Coupe included in this safety recall was made on March 17, 2020, while the M2s were put together between June 23 and October 14 this year.

The recall is expected to begin on December 21; dealers were informed at the end of October and owners will be notified via first class mail. Subsequent to that date, the company’s authorized technicians will inspect each car, and if the damping component is missing, then the injectors and fuel rail will be replaced. All work will be carried out free of charge.

The Mercedes-Benz R-Class wasn’t a hit with buyers (to put it mildly), so it’s no surprise that it wasn’t replaced when it was phased out. However, a new report has revealed that it could effectively be “reborn” as an all-electric SUV.

It is claimed that the GLR, as it is known, is a product left behind by AMG boss Tobias Moers before he left to become Aston Martin‘s CEO. The name remains unconfirmed, and since this is reportedly going to be all-electric could very well be changed to EQR for production. Names aside, this SUV is shaping up to be something very special.

As per a report from Car Magazine, the Mercedes-AMG GLR will utilizes a 105 kWh battery pack that uses graphene-based metal-free, liquid-cooled round cells and is designed for 350 kW fast-charging. The SUV will be powered by a trio of electric motors that combine to produce 1,006 hp and 996 lb-ft (1,350 Nm) of torque.

It is claimed that the front axle will use a single-speed direct-drive system, while the rear will support a two-speed transmission, similar to the one used in the Porsche Taycan. At this early stage, no more details are known.

Whereas many automakers are venturing into the world of electric vehicles with record-breaking hypercars, there aren’t quite as many looking to release SUVs with supercar levels of performance. A potential rival to the rumored Mercedes-AMG GLR/EQR would be a production version of the Pininfarina Pura Vision SUV that may also pump out around 1,000 hp.
