Zarooq SandRacer 500 GT

Let's face it, nearly all supercars are designed for the street, that is unless...you're talking about the rear-wheel-drive Zarooq SandRacer 500 GT. Powered by a 6.2L V8 engine that produces 525 horsepower and 487 foot-pounds of torque, it boasts a street-friendly driving mode and an off-road 'sand' mode to tackle the dunes. Inside, you'll find extremely snug, yet comfortable, Mansory carbon fiber seats, complete with a built-in roll cage designed by Campos Racing Grand Prix engineers. One caveat: it'll set you back $450,000 when it's released later this year. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Mexico Pyramid Underworld

Archaeologists have discovered a secret passageway under Teotihuacan's Pyramid of the Moon that may have been used to emulate the underworld. It's located about 30 feet underground and spans from the pre-Aztec pyramid to the middle of its outer central square. "The function of the tunnel may have been to reproduce the underworld, a world where life, animals, and plants originated," said archaeologist Veronica Ortega. Construction first began on the Pyramid of the Moon in 100 BC, which began as a small platform that grew in stages over roughly 500 years to a height of 150 feet.

Secret US Bunker


There are many not so secret bunkers scattered around the United States that will be used in event of war or other disasters, and the most famous of which, is the Cheyenne Mountain Complex (above). This military installation and nuclear bunker is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, which hosts the activities of several tenant units. The complex was built under 2,000 feet (610 m) of granite on 2 hectares (5 acres). Fifteen three-story buildings are protected from movement by an earthquake or explosion by a system of giant springs that the buildings sit on and flexible pipe connectors to limit the operational effect of movement. The bunker is built to deflect a 30 megaton nuclear explosion as close as 2 kilometers (1.2 mi). Within a mountain tunnel are sets of 25-ton blast doors and another for the civil engineering department. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Lockheed Martin SR-72


After many years of speculation, Lockheed Martin has finally confirmed that its Skunk Works unit has started building the first SR-72 flight demonstrator. The aircraft is envisioned with an air-breathing hypersonic propulsion system that has the ability to accelerate from standstill to Mach 6.0 using the same engine, making it about twice as fast as the SR-71. At speeds of Mach 5 and above, aerodynamic friction becomes hot enough to melt conventional metallic airframes, so engineers are looking to composites such as high-performance carbon, ceramic, and metal mixes, for fabrication of critical components. The SR-72 follows the US Air Force's hypersonic road map for developing a hypersonic strike weapon by 2020, and a penetrating ISR aircraft by 2030.

Back to the Future Illusion

At first glance, the top image may seem like a scene from Back to the Future, but it's just a clever illusion created by photographer Felix Hernandez. To make this possible, he used a 1:18th-scale model toy car, studio tabletop, fire, hand tools, smoke, and light painting. Once the scene was shot, he used Photoshop to layer multiple frames, add flares, and color grade. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

McLaren P1 Successor

The current McLaren P1 is already a beastly street-legal hypercar that does 0-60 in 2.0-seconds, but it's only a matter of time until the company releases a successor, and Su Dong-Liang used the 720S to give us a sneak peak at what could be. There's no official word yet, but rumors claim that McLaren could use a full-electric powertrain, which means it'll definitely be quicker than its predecessor.
