Watching a car crash is like, well, watching a car crash. You see the impending doom, time slows down and you start moaning like a zombie. Then the inevitable happens, the car collides with something and your zombie-esque moan turns into a breathy lung exhausting “aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh”.
This video is one of those moments. You know what’s about to happen from the first rev of the engine. One minute later, the Lamborghini becomes the swirly meat in a giant car sandwich. The only word that comes to mind in this instance is a sarcastic “unprofessional“. Sorry for your loss of nice bodywork Lambo.
Normally I have absolutely nothing nice to say about winter. However, watching this video of a guy in a Lambo did remind me, that I do in-fact enjoy the heck out of some snowy parking lots. RWD, FWD, AWD, it just doesn’t matter. Spinning around in circles, and pretending you are Ken Block for a few minutes before the police show up, makes you feel like a true champion. Doing it in a Lamborghini, well, that is probably even better, though I will likely never know.
In a world of exotics, yellow has a place of its own. To me nothing screams “I’m here” like a bright yellow exotic sports car. If I were ever in a position to buy an exotic, it would without a doubt, have to be yellow.
Why yellow you ask? I love yellow because it’s different, it’s loud, it’s a change in the opposite direction from red, and if your lucky enough to get invited to a prestigious car show, there’s often a class for yellow car entries. To me there’s nothing cooler than observing an entire line of yellow Ferraris, Porches or Lamborghini’s on display. Most of these cars tend to wear it well. (more…)
Every once in a long while I catch a show on TV about Luigi Colani. He is a designer of a variety of things, cars being one of the more prominent ones. He is ridiculously talented at what he does, and is always thinking outside the box with his nature-related design. His automotive concepts are always WAY beyond anything that current manufacturers are ready for, but they are thought provoking nonetheless. Try doing a Google image search for his name sometime when you’re bored and check out his work.
One of his lost vehicle concepts from 1970 popped up on eBay the other day. It’s known as the “Lamborgini Miura Le Mans concept prototype car”. It’s based on a Lamborghini (surprise), and it’s quite futuristic to say the least. It toured around Europe for several years when it was first built, then oddly enough it traveled 30+ years into the future to an estate auction in Indiana (clearly hitting a few bumps along the way). A totally awesome car no doubt; it’s really too bad a car as cool as this has been hidden for so long. Hopefully it will be restored and driven or put on display so that it can be enjoyed by the masses again.
Quicky Sidenote: Be sure to look at the green picture below. It looks like he designed the car to comfortably seat two bears. lolzzz.
This rig pulls up at your house.
The Stig is driving.
The tow rig’s passenger door swings open.
You glare at your own reflection in The Stig helmet.
There is a giant sticker on the dashboard that says “It’s you’re lucky day!”
This is not reality.
Snap out of it.
