Video: Nissan celebrates National Donut Day

June 3 is National Donut Day in the United States, and Nissan doesn’t want to miss the chance for a marketing stunt. To mix doing donuts with decorating doughnuts, drifter Chris Forsberg gets behind the wheel of a 370Z Nismo in a studio full of 2,880 pounds of sprinkles.

The 370Z Nismo’s 350-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 can certainly fling sprinkles from the rear wheels, and wearing eye protection is a very good idea. The slow-motion shots show the bits flying everywhere. By the time he’s done, it looks like Forsberg thoroughly covers the donuts and everyone in the studio. After spreading around the candy, the next logical step is to start a food fight and play in the leftover sprinkles.

All-new 2017 Audi A5, S5 coupes

Audi revolutionized its mid-size class in 2007 with the A5. The Ingolstadt-based carmaker created a work of art that took fans around the world by storm. Nine years later marks the launch of the second generation – with a new, honed look and high tech everywhere. The new generation of the A5 Coupé is athletic, sporty and elegant.

The new Audi A5 Coupé sports a fresh, modern and honed look. It is nevertheless true to its DNA with the sporty and elegant character being passed down to the new version. The best example is the now three-dimensional wave-shaped shoulder line that already characterized the previous model. The precisely sweeping line with pronounced bulges over the wheel arches emphasizes all four wheels – a cue to the quattro all-wheel drive.

BMW M celebrates the 30th anniversary of M3 with a new exclusive special edition

With the launch of the first generation of the BMW M3 in 1986, the BMW M GmbH, at that time operating under the name BMW Motorsport GmbH, revolutionized the sporty mid-range segment. No other manufacturer had previously ever deployed genuine motorsports technology so consistently in order to transform a high-volume production model like the BMW 3 Series into a thoroughbred high-performance sports car that is also fully suitable for everyday use. The first BMW M3 set the standard by which other manufacturers were measured.

Meanwhile, BMW M has continuously refined its automotive icon across five model generations. And over all these years the BMW M3 has retained its original character. Probably no other automobile combines distinct racing genes and unrestricted day-to-day suitability into such a highly emotional overall concept. To mark the 30th anniversary of this automotive icon this summer, BMW M is launching the exclusive special edition of the BMW M3 “30 Years M3”, which is limited to 500 cars worldwide.
