A cyberpunk short with a warning for us all by Mads Broni and Salla Lehmus.

A dystopian future, isolation, technology versus humanity and so forth.

You know the score.

After a brief plug for the other Top Gear, The Slomo Guys, Gav and Dan put their high speed 4k camera to use, filming the impacts of a 4 tonne wrecking ball at 1000 frames per second.

The action starts around 1:20 and the impacts are pleasing to behold.

Each one is an individual sculpture by New Jersey based South Korean ceramicist Jae Yong Kim.

Behold: the Bugatti Type 55 Roadster – possibly the most advanced car on the planet. In 1931.

Based on the Type 45 and Type 47 Grand Prix race cars, it had a straight 8 supercharged engine and (previously unheard-of) alloy wheels.

This beautifully restored vehicle was the first T55 ever made which explains the cost.

A mere €3.4+ million.
