Yet another ride in a +1000 HP Chevy Corvette!

I've seen and filmed a bunch of awesome high power custom-built Chevy Corvettes this year, like the SIX-5, the fastest street legal C2 Corvette in the world, +200mph classic that I got to experience onboard on a track, and there's a few other Corvettes as well.
But the Corvette I wanna talk about now is this supercharged C5 that I got the chance to film exclusively here in Finland.

The beast in question is yet another crazy track machine producing over 1000 HP, plus it also has a NOS kit (Nitrous Oxide System) installed as well.
This car lets you know it means business just the way it sounds. It's got a loud Borla Exhaust system fitted in, and there's the supercharger whine, and with that shiny orange paint and a few decals on the exterior it sure won't go unnoticed!
The owner is a very nice guy, and he took me on a little spin around town with the car, and man you really don't need to be on a highway or on a track to feel all that power that V8 engine produces! Just a gentle push on the pedal and you feel things in your stomach, and when you add all the loud sounds this car makes, to drive it just around a block or two is enough to be an amazing experience!

You can hear the loud V8 sounds this car makes, check out the onboard ride and see more specs about this car in the video below or at the JAMBOOLIO Youtube Channel, thanks!

I wanna thank TOMAS, the owner of this Chevrolet Corvette C5, it's awesome!

Here's also the onboard ride in the SIX-5 C2 Corvette I mentioned earlier, check it out!

Carspotting Through a Lens...

Hey ya'll, how's it going? Haven't posted any car stuff in a while on this blog (whole different story with the carvideos, check 'em out HERE) so I had an idea, that since I'm not on Instagram (yeah that's right) but I often snap a photo or two of the SUPERCARS and/or MUSCLE CARS that I spot, with these pics I'd show (some) of the coolest cars of recent months that I've come across...

Sound any good? Well anyways, here goes...

The world's fastest C2 Corvette: SIX-5

Last weekend at the 'Unlimited Racing' event in Lappeenranta Finland, I had the amazing opportunity to film the world's fastest C2 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray (1965) up close, and not only that, I got to experience the power and speed of this amazing muscle car classic as a passenger on a high speed run on track!

This stunning car has clocked 200+ mph ( 322 km/h ) on a standing mile run (7.6.2014 Lappeenranta, Finland) making it the worlds fastest street legal C2 Corvette. Pretty epic speed for an almost 50 year old automobile!
The custom built Small Block 400cid 6.5L V8 engine produces 1000+ HP with the NOS kit (Nitrous Oxide System).

Here's a small teaser clip of the upcoming videos that will include a high speed onboard ride on track, engine startups and brutal V8 and exhaust sound, huge revs, overview of the car and its engine bay, GoPro track footage and much much more.

Video: PREVIEW: World's Fastest C2 Corvette | +1000 HP | Video(s) coming soon! |

Four LaFerrari's in one week!

Just spent two weeks in the French Riviera, Monaco and Cannes to be precise, spotting supercars, hypercars, even muscle cars, and getting a lot of awesome footage filmed for my Youtube Channel.
One of the most craziest car related things on this trip was that within one weeks time I had spotted (and filmed) FOUR (4!!) different Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid hypercars.
That's a pretty good number since only 499 units will be ever built with an over €1 million price tag!
All cars I saw were Rosso Corsa red, all were registered to different countries, and all were just mighty awesome!

LaFerrari parked next to Ferrari 458 Speciale at the Monaco Casino Square

As you propably know, LaFerrari is the most powerful Ferrari roadcar ever with its 6.3-litre V12 engine + electric drive producing 963 HP and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque. Top speed is over 350 km/h (217 mph), and 100 km/h (62 mph) is reached in under three seconds.



All LaFerrari's I encountered were Rosso Corsa red, two had silver OEM rims, two with all black OEM rims. The cars were registered to Monaco, France, Luxembourg and Andorra.

Check out the latest SUPERCAR / MUSCLE CAR videos here:

Within two weeks time in the Riviera and after seeing four LaFerraris, EnzoKoenigsegg Agera R, Pagani Huayra and Zonda, and tons of other supercars, didn't see not even one McLaren P1 nor Porsche 918, whatever that means... ;)

BMW i8 - exclusive material!

Just got back from my two weeks filming / carspotting trip to Cannes & Monaco. Saw so many amazing cars; four (4!!!) LaFerrari's, muscle cars, exotics, hypercars, supercars and much more!

One of the pretty special ones I saw was the brand new BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car / supercar, which BMW brought to show it off to some special customers at the Cannes Film Festival and in Monaco during the Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend.

Here's a few photos of this stunning new automobile, with an exclusive video of the i8 driving for the first time on public streets, enjoy!

Automotive Friday

Had a great time last weekend in Helsinki, and as you might have guessed it, trip there was pretty much all about cars. Not entirely, but for the most parts; cars, cars, cars.
First it was time for the annual American Car Show / Tuning Car Show. After that some carspotting in the centre Helsinki, and in the evening loud V8 engines and smoky burnouts at the Vantaa Cruising (aka Vanda Cruising).
But like before, rather than me blabbering about these things too much, it's better to show you some photos / videos, enjoy!

American Car Show and more...

Thought I'd remind all you Muscle Car fans, it's time to check out the annual American Car Show (18-21st April) in Helsinki next Friday, and if you're anywhere near that place, you'll definitely wanna head to Vantaa in the Friday evening too, there's the Vanda Cruising with all the loud V8's and smoky burnouts happening also...

Here's a few clips from previous years:

Here's what's coming up

So after the Geneva trip it's time to start getting ready for probably the biggest Jamboolio's carspotting trip of this year, which is full TWO WEEKS in Cannes and Monaco in May.
I did this same thing last year, head to Cannes right for the start of Cannes Film Festival, which means that the town is full of the most amazing supercars and hypercars, day and night naturally!

VIDEO: Cannes 2013 Supercar Nights

Monaco is right next to Cannes, so it's easy to make multiple trips there, and as you'll probably know that place is always packed with stunning cars. Plus there'll be the F1 Grand Prix weekend, which draws a lot of more Supercars to town, and I'll be there to film all of them.

VIDEO: Monaco Supercar Spotting 2013

As for the Muscle Car fans, things are looking good also. You see the fantastic Helsinki Cruising Night events start again in April, and that means once a month the Market Square in Helsinki will be packed with all kinds of American V8 and V10 muscle cars, classics and brand new, all in one place.

VIDEO: BULLITT!! 1968 Ford Mustang GT-390 Fastback "Bullitt" - incredible V8 sound!!

 VIDEO: V8 SYMPHONY!! Helsinki Cruising Night 9/2013 - muscle cars, loud exhausts and more!

There's also one very special event here in Finland at the end of June, that I'll be attending, and will get very exclusive footage from, and that is the Unlimited Racing event in Lappeenranta, Finland from June 27 to 29.

The organizer has granted me limitless access to this event for full three days, that means Supercars, Muscle Cars, on-board rides etc. etc. So a big thank you to Daniel from D1 Ultimate Racing! A lot of footage coming from there in the summer.

Many more events and happenings coming up before and after these that I've just mentioned, but more of them later...
