One of two remaining Auto Union D-Types, commissioned by Adolf Hitler to showcase the technological superiority of the Reich, will be sold in Paris by Christie's this February. It is expected to top the current most expensive car record holder, an 11-million-dollar Bugatti.

Ferdinand Porsche developed the Auto-Union racers, which were designed and built in the 1930s. The "[shiny silver streamliners] use a mid-engine layout with fully independent suspensions and supercharged engines."

The car was discovered disassembled in Russia, where it was taken for reverse-engineering, and later reassembled.

Didn't they do that to Hitler's brain too, I heard?

A 2,500-acre island belonging to Persian Gulf emirate Abu Dhabi, will host a "high-tech" theme park called Ferrari World. The park will featuring simulator rides, roller coasters, an interactive museum and a theatre with an Italian-themed play and a race track, as part of the $40 billion dollar transformation into one of the world's premier luxury tourist destinations.

Why Ferrari World?

Well, the ruling family in Abu Dhabi, al-Nahyan, owns five percent of Ferrari. They also happen to hold 8% of the world's oil supply

That's why.

Don't Call Me N-----, Whitey!

Amidst the fallout of the Michael Richards incident, a group of activists are calling for a boycott of the "n-word." Lead by Reverend Jesse Jackson, Rep. Maxine Waters, comedian Paul Mooney, and rapper Paul Wall and other African-American leaders, the group gathered in Los Angeles on Monday (Nov. 27) and voiced support for an upcoming NAACP campaign to "just say 'no' to the n-word."

Paul Wall? Isn't he white? C'mon, he shouldn't be using the damn word anyways!

Mooney has even vowed to never use the word again during his routine...and he loves that word! "I've used it and abused it, and I never thought I'd say this," Mooney said. "Richards is my Dr. Phil ? he's cured me."

Hilariously, Queens rapper Noreaga, who is black and Puerto Rican, is opposed to the NAACP ads.

"Man, Seinfeld was my show and Kramer, he was my favorite character," Noreaga said. "But f**k him. Why run to his aid? There are neighborhoods in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico that look like Third World countries. I definitely don't plan to change my vocabulary or speech pattern because of this incident. You never hear from these leaders until something controversial happens."

Exclusive Interview With Pitbull

Miami based reggaet?n rapper Pitbull is lighting up dancefloors around the country with his new album El Mariel. Of course, I wouldn't know because I am a nerd and can't dance to save my life. But my hipper friends assure me that Pitbull is quite hip and all the rage. Incredibly, he's a nice guy too, as he accepted an interview request from the whitest man on planet earth, me. I got in nine questions, baby, so read away...

TheFeed: Tell me about your new album. What can we expect from it?

Pitbull: El Mariel is basically a display of Pitbull, how diverse the movement is, and the versatility behind the music. It's like a roller coaster ride; you got your street anthem, club anthems, you got emotional records, deep records you know, records for the women of course, and as far as the production on it, you got Lil John, Diaz Brothers, Pharrell. Mr. Collipark, DJ Toons, Jim Jonson and more. As far as features, you got Fat Joe, Bun-B, Sinful, Lengua Afuera, Wyclef, Vybz Cartel, Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Ying Yang Twins, so there's a variety of music on it.

You're an entertainer that's pulled your self up by your bootstraps from the ghetto to the limelight, beating the odds along the way and proving your detractors wrong. You're new album has just been released and is sure to be a bit hit, allowing you to pass your success on to your family, friends and young son. And you've just walked off the stage from a set on Late Show with David Letterman, thereby proving you are as on top as it gets.

So what do you do to celebrate?

Walk out of the Letterman building, jump in a cab, tell the driver that you are an undercover police cop, and demand he run a series of red lights for 13 blocks before getting pulled over and arrested by the cops, THAT what!

Legendary Houston rapper Scarface is being sued by jeweler to the stars Jacob "The Jeweler" Arabo over a $37,000 job?dating back to?2002.

Jacob claims the Geto Boys MC bought the jewelry, but neglected to payment requests on several occasions.

Ironically, Arabo is currently free on $100,000 bail while he awaits trial on federal money laundering charges. He is accused of helping the Black Mafia Family, an alleged drug organization, launder over $270 million in drug proceeds. Hmmmm....that probably doesn't bode well for his claims that ?Face was the one doing dirty business, does it?

Don't be fooled. We really do live in a world where no record is sacred. That was proven this weekend when Singaporean student Ang Chuang Yang shattered the world record for texting on a cell phone. Mr. Yang shocked the world by entering a 160-character message into his phone in 41.52 seconds, shaming previous world record holder, American Ben Cook, whose top texting speed was 42.22 seconds.

Following the contest, Yang stated that next year, he would be aiming for 39 seconds. Must I ask it? Is nothing sacred?

In response to last weekend's super-human feat, I've put together a few facts to give all of you some sense of placement.

Non-instrument playing metal heads of the world rejoice!

Australian scientists from CSIRO's Textile and Fibre Technology division have brought to life those rock star dreams you've had since your adolescence (you know, the ones you continue to live out in your basement though you're now a grown man with kids) by creating a shirt that lets you play air guitar... for real!

It's called the WIS, the Wearable Instrument Shirt.

Electronic sensors woven into the shirt map the wearer's arms and are beamed through radio waves into a computer which translates the movement into musical notes. According to Dr. Richard Helmer, the lead chemical engineer on the project, "The left arm chooses a note and the right arm plays it," but things can be augmented for left handed air guitarists.

Guns n' Roses: Drunk Skunks?

We all know rock ?n' rollers like to drink. That's a fact.

But to cancel a concert because you couldn't drink onstage seems a bit extreme, if not? downright irresponsible to the fans. Well irresponsible and extreme sum up Axl Rose quite nicely.

Axl and?his current Guns n' Roses lineup?were told by Portland fire marshal that due to all their pyro, they couldn't drink onstage....and the band didn't take it to kindly. In fact, they cancelled their show last Monday at the Cumberland County Civic Center, blaming it on strict last minute regulations set by the Maine Public Safety Department, who say state law prohibits performers from drinking while on stage, and prohibits employees at establishments with liquor licenses from drinking on the job.

A posse of Christians called HipHopEMass are trying to spread the word of God through rap music via a new album that puts their service to bumpin' music.

New York Episcopal priest the Rev. Timothy Holder (a.k.a. Poppa T) started the group two years ago after "an armed hostage situation at his South Bronx church made him focus on the neighborhood's younger generations."

"Don't get me wrong. We are not replacing or substituting the Bible," says Holder. "We are bringing the story of the Bible to a younger generation and making it immediate and upfront. If you don't have an altar in the street, you have nothing."

The CD is called And the Word Was Hip Hop: HipHopEMass, and features songs like "I Am Hip Hop," "God Is In The House," and "One Mic, One Life, One Love."
