Dirt 3 Gymkhana multiplayer Ken Block Tanner Foust

DiRT 3 pits Foust and Block in a Gymkhana showdown – Click above to watch video after the jump

The launch of DiRT 3 is nearly here. You can pick up a copy of the Gymkhana-friendly game on May 24th, but since we’re not quite there yet, Codemasters is more than happy to show off this new video, tantalizing us until the day we can finally plunk down cash for our very own copy.

Like we’ve seen in the past, this latest clip features a virtual Ken Block sliding his perfectly pixelated Ford Fiesta through a make-shift course. This time around, however, Block is joined by Tanner Foust and his equally impressive Rallycross-ready Fiesta.

The last time these two met in real life, Foust wound up beating Block at his own game. Now he’s in Block’s game, and we can’t wait to take each car out for a few (thousand) laps of virtual tire destruction. Click past the jump to watch the clip.

2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – Click above to view video after the jump

It’s hard to put into words why someone should buy a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 without sounding like an energy drink-swilling high schooler. It’s just hard to describe its level of performance, styling and je ne sais quoi without using the hackneyed standbys like “epic” or “awesome” or “dude.”

That’s probably why Lamborghini isn’t really bothering with words. Instead, they’ve put together a three-minute clip of the Aventador thwarting a geological disaster to amply illustrate its appeal. Sure, it still doesn’t answer how you’re going to put groceries in it, or what kind of gas mileage it gets or how much it costs to insure, but if you’re still worried about those sort of mundane details, you’re a lost cause.

As if the video’s impressive CGI, magnificent driving and glamor shots of the new Lamborghini flagship weren’t enough, the clip ends with an apt way to describe the car. Check out the video after the jump. Thanks for the tip, Zachary!
