Over the past 6 decades, which is 60 years (see what we did there to save you doing the math?) the landscape of America has been keenly observed by MAD Magazine, making fun of everyone and everything along the way. Unwavering in its commitment to producing stupidity of the highest level, the legendary writers and artists at MAD have long been known as referred to as "The Usual Gang of Idiots,". They have quite brilliantly satirized celebrities, politics, sports, cultural trends, the media and much much more. Totally MAD ($29) is the definitive collection of their greatest moments, and indelible proof that there is indeed a very fine line between genius and insanity.

Dodge has let the cat out of the bag and announced it will be releasing the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR ($TBA) (american club racer). Instead of just releasing a new model with a few fit and finish changes, they wanted the ACR to stand out. Dodge focused on improvements with aerodynamics, brakes, and tires. It will feature an all-aluminum 8.4-liter V10 that puts out 645 horses, paired with a 6-speed manny tranny. At 177mph, the ACR will produce over 2000 lbs of down force, keeping the light sports car glued to the road. Additional features include Brembo brakes, with six-piston calipers for the fronts and four-piston calipers for the rear. While the wheels are wrapped in 19-inch Kumho Ecsta V720 tires.
Mansory, one of the world's most renowned Luxury car customizers, has taken the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 to a whole new level. The Masory Carbonado "Black Diamond" ($CALL) has been so murdered out in carbon fiber, its almost invisible. But the body wasn't the only thing Mansory completely reworked. They also got their greedy little hads on the stock 6.5-liter V-12. In order to increase the punch, they added two Mansory turbochargers. Plus they replaced the pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank and cylinder head with motor racing parts. Along with the newly designed exhaust system the Carbonado takes the stock 700 horses and blows it out of the water with an impressive 1250 horses. Torque has been limited to a still awe inspiring 664 lb-ft. With everything this whole kit gets a top speed of 236mph with a 0-60mph time of 2.6 seconds. Not too shabby.
