Meanwhile in Russia: Angry Ukrainian Woman Goes Need for Speed Crazy After Skoda Pulls in Front of Her

Seriously now, who needs Hollywood when we have dash-cams? Just look at this insane video of a woman driver from Ukraine who goes nuts after a Skoda Octavia made the mistake of pulling in front of her car to turn at a light.

For most drivers, a flick of the headlamps, a prolonged beep on the horn, or if you just want to get it out of your system, some cussing, is usually more than enough to end a traffic episode, but not for this lady who took it personally and began chasing the Skoda on the streets of Kiev.

Not that the Octavia driver let the incident go as both motorists engaged in a dangerous cat and mouse game for more than 4 minutes.

In Russia, an Overtake is Never a Simple Chore…

This video starts out pretty normal, but quickly escalates into the usual craziness we have become accustomed to from Russian dash-cams.

You will see driver of a black Skoda Octavia notchback overtaking the lorry equipped with the camera and getting behind another truck.

At this point, from what we understand, the two truck drivers were communicating with each other through a CB radio system and decided to slow down and squeeze the Octavia…

The Octavia driver was apparently scared by the move and made a run for it on the side road but he didn’t quite make it….

The sculpture, appropriately named Citihenge, is made entirely from recycled car parts and is located on London’s Southbank. It was built using 18 scrap cars and stands at over five metres tall (close to 17 feet). Each henge is five metres wide and the commanding structure weighs a remarkable 36 tonnes.
The structure was erected on site in London in less than 12 hours and according to its creators, it has been engineered to withstand force 12 hurricane winds.

Škoda Superb Combi Outdoor

The Superb Combi Outdoor is only about the looks, as it doesn’t get a higher ride or a modified suspension nor any protective underbody plates.

Instead, the ‘Outdoor’ is a pure design package that adds what the Czech automaker describes as “robust synthetic panelling” on the rear bumper, the wheel arches and the doorsills along with a redesigned front bumper fitted with a larger air intake and round fog lamps.

Skoda says the ‘Outdoor’ version is available for all Superb engine versions with front- and all-wheel drive, sans for the GreenLine variant.
