There are petrolheads and then there are petrolheads. The first will buy and maintain their cars and bikes and will talk about all things under the sun and the latter, well the only thing on their mind are their vehicles……nothing else. To celebrate this huge world of everything which uses an IC engine, we have compiled a list of videos which are a must watch on your list.
1. How Royal Enfields look so classy:
Any RE owner will tell you they love their bike, even if it sits in the service centre for three days per week for repairs. Why? This might be one of the reasons. Such passion and dedication is what makes them love their bikes!

We know what a differential is but when asked to explain how it works all you can say is: MAGIC. But not after watching this video.

A scientific fact: All riders who participate in this race have balls of carbon fiber and titanium!

Yes, the word idiots aptly describes these people who wanted to showoff or were just filthy rich to not give a second thought. Idiots!

The 1981 Spanish grand Prix at Jarama which saw Gilles Villeneuve emerge as a hero in a car which even Ferrari knew was competitive only for the First few laps.

11. The entire series of TopGear
If you have not watched a single episode of this, you have lost the right to call yourself a PetrolHead. Its sad that this show had an abrupt ending early this year, but that does not discount the tons of memories and laughs and knowledge and Oh Snap? moments this has given us. Hosted by the trio of an Orangutan, a hamster who had his teeth whitened and the worlds slowest man were often joined by a fourth figure, the man in the white suit, known as the Stig who is rumored to be the worlds greatest racing driver, they had madcap challenges and took digs at each other and politicians and car manufacturers and traveled around the world for these challenges.
