Norway is filled with Tesla cars I spent a day in Oslo before traveling to Svalbard, and noticed that there were Teslas everywhere. Upon further investigation, I learned that the Norwegian government heavily incentivizes ownership of electric cars: Tesla doesn't pay a sales tax on the models it sells, electric car owners are exempt from automobile tolls, and they can charge their vehicles for free. The catch is that Norway funds these initiatives through its sovereign wealth fund, which is almost entirely comprised of profits from Norway's oil and fossil fuel exports.

80 vintage cars were found in an abandoned barn In total, the barn housed more or less 81 vehicles dating from the 50s to 80s.

But the biggest nugget was probably the Lamborghini Miura P400 with less than 80,000 kilometers on the odometer, estimated between 400,000 and 600,000 euros. In this barn, there was also an e-type series 1 jaguar, a Porsche 356 Pre-A and a Corvette C3 or a van Citroen dating from 1930.
Turbinator II, the first car to reach 800km/h On October 2, 2018, Team Vesco's Turbinator II with Dave Spangler driving became the first wheel drive car to exceed the 500 mph barrier. Owner, designer and builder, Rick Vesco and his late brother Don began to pursue this goal 17 years ago. Tragically Don died of cancer in 2002 and never saw his dream fulfilled. In 2013 Rick began to upgrade the car with a new turbine engine, new drive train, new traction control, new brakes and new body. It was sweet success when on the first (and only) day of the World Finals event on the famous Bonneville Salt Flats, Dave Spangler powered the car through to a spectacular 503 mph run!
