This forcible humping of a Mercedes and Neon resulted when a woman was trying to perform a three-point turn. Looks to us like the Mercedes was trying to pull off the coveted Eiffel Tower instead.
A woman in the UK decided instead of gently pressing the brake pedal, she jammed down on the accelerator while attempting a three-point turn, causing her Mercedes to mount the front end of a little Neon. The owner of the car was awoken by a loud crashing sound and rushed out to make sure that the driver was okay. It turned out it was his neighbor's wife, so they all had a laugh over some tea and crumpets - all so British, wouldn't you say?
All involved did not feel so jolly as the house was reported saying that it was not happy with the unexpected mounting and therefore would not complete the necessary steps to complete the Eiffel Tower maneuver. The Neon was heard mumbling "Hi!" Another steamy shot of the car-on-car duo below.
Just when you thought you'd seen the last of RENNTECH's work on the Mercedes SLR McLaren, the company is back tuning the supercar yet again, unveiling what they call the "777 Concept." The model is being introduced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of RENNTECH, and as such, it shows fantastically the magic RENNTECH-tuned models are capable of. Seven hundred seventy-seven horsepower; a top speed of more than 210 miles-per-hour; extensive lightweight aerodynamic body components; and a limited production of just 20 units this is just a sampling of what customers of the RENNTECH 777 concept have to look forward to.

In Woking, England today, the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team unveiled the creature that will attempt to help Lewis Hamilton capture his second straight F1 championship the new MP4-24. In development since September of 2007, the MP4-24 features a host of changes when compared to the outgoing MP4-23, including heavily revised bodywork, re-sculpted front and rear wings, slick tires and a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS). The changes come due to a number of new rules issued by Formula 1 that take effect for the 2009 season. At the Mercedes MP4-24's unveiling, Hamilton had this to say about the new vehicle: "The arrival of a new car is always an emotional moment for any racing driver and the unveiling of MP4-24 is even more special for me, not only because the car looks absolutely stunning but also because it carries the number one world champions. I believe this year's world championship is open, given the new rule changes and that's a great prospect for every Formula 1 fan. Personally, I'm hoping for another successful season and the chance to once again fight for the title until the final race if necessary, but preferably before!"
