A young rapper by the name of Blueface has filmed himself driving his C8 Corvette Stingray at over 150 mph (241 km/h).

The clip in question was reposted on Instagram by saycheesetv and shows the rapper driving the mid-engined sports car with one hand on the steering wheel while his other hand holds his smartphone that records the whole thing.

It is unclear where exactly in the U.S. the video was filmed, but as the clip shows, the ‘Vette hit a top speed of 157 mph (252 km/h).

It doesn’t take a genius to know that driving at speeds like these on a public road other than an unrestricted section of the German Autobahn is both illegal and dangerous. It is even more dangerous to drive at such speeds with one hand barely clasping the top of the wheel…

Sure, the C8 Corvette may look stable at these speeds, but if the car were to hit a bump, for instance, the rapper would have a hard time keeping it under control. It’s also impossible to predict what cars around you are going to do, further adding to the danger.

As a side note, you may also notice the redline of this Corvette is set at 4,000 rpm either because either the car is still in its break-in period or the engine isn’t warmed up yet. Either way, disregarding the limiter is not the smart thing to do.

If live in the States and are in the market for an affordable and reliable sedan, the current Honda Civic Sedan starts at a very reasonable $21,050. However, there’s a 21-year-old example out there that’s going for considerably more than that.

The 1999 Civic Si in question is painted in Electron Blue and was purchased by the seller back in April 2018 for $24,027. Since then, the prices of pristine Hondas from the late 1990s and early 2000s has skyrocketed and at the time of writing, bidding on the car had already exceeded $36,000 with one day left into the auction.

According to the current Bring A Trailer auction, the car is being sold with its original purchase documentation, a Honda car cover, owner’s manuals, two keys with fobs, service records, an accident-free Carfax report and a clean California title in the seller’s name. It also has an open recall for its Takata airbag inflators.

Moreover, the car sits on its factory 15-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin XGT V4 tires and includes brake discs at all four corners. As this is a Si model, it also sports a front strut tower brace and stiffened suspension.

Inside, there’s dark gray fabric with patterned inserts on the seats and a matching dashboard. A look at the odometer reveals the car has been driven a touch over 12,000 miles (~19,300 km), of which the current owner has only added 140 miles in the last two and half years.

Brembo’s new manufacturing process of brake discs introduced at the beginning of the year has encountered an issue, as some components could fracture without any prior warning.

The faulty parts ended up in certain 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia sports sedans, which are now being recalled in North America.

Only eight Giulias, which were built from February 17 to July 27, 2020, have been included in the safety campaign, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The cars were identified by using supplier and plant production records, whereas those left out are said to have been built outside of the suspect period or simply put together with rear brake discs made using a different process.

“The suspect population period for vehicles in this recall began February 17, 2020, when rear brake discs with a new finish and new material mixing machine were introduced into production, through July 27, 2020, when the suspect parts were no longer used in production of vehicles included in this recall”, the safety agency explained.

The rear brake discs could fracture while driving, which would significantly increase the stopping distance of the vehicle, thus increasing the risk of having an accident.

The issue was brought forward by Brembo, which informed FCA Italy’s Quality Department on October 27. A couple of weeks later, the automaker’s Vehicle Regulations Committee decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall.

Authorized technicians will replace the rear brake discs on the affected Giulias free of charge. Reimbursements will be made and the recall is expected to begin on January 7, 2021.
