Hamman Victory II

Hamman have taken the sexy Lamborghini LP 560-4 and turned into a very sexy beast. Hamman aren’t known for major engine tuning but they know how to make a good looking car look even better. I’m a fan of the LP 560-4 and they have made it look even better, with that mean looking body kit. They gave it their signature door opening mechanism and beefy looking fenders. The combination of the matt black and red carbon fiber is one mean looking machine, I would love to have this in my drive way. But as usual I’m assuming this kit is probably on the expensive side.

Exotics Racing – Las Vegas

When in Las Vegas one of the top things on my list to do was to go to Exotics Racing. The best choice of high end vehicles to drive all in one stop and for a relatively cheap price for what you could do with these machines. Have a choice of several super cars and for a bunch of guys its like a kid in a candy store. I have always wanted to drive a Scuderia on a track before since I have heard that it’s just an amazing machine to drive. Then there are so many other beautiful machines, and you have these amazing track instructors with you. There is also a drift ride in a Corvette Z06, and they go through 10 sets of tires a day for that corvette. Honestly the whole thing was a hell of a lot of fun for a cheap price.

You get in the car you chose, you get about 5 laps per car and you have a combination of vehicles if you want. In my case I only want to drive of the Ferrari F430 Scuderia, some of my friends took the Ferrari F430 F1 and the Lamborghini LP560. The is endless, you have all these vehicles on the track: Lamborghini LP640, Lamborghini LP560-4, Ferrari F430 F1, Ferrari F430 Scuderia, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, and Porsche Carerra. The only thing they were missing was a Porsche GT3 or Turbo, but they have every thing else you could imagine. You jump in the seat and the trainer gets in the car with you, you would think they would tell you take it easy, but in my case the guy made me floor the gas and turn hard, and at time I thought I was going to spin out but it held on. I was loving every moment of it, the only thing I wanted was a bigger track to enjoy some more high speed turns then this short one. All the driving range from $200 to $500 which depends on the car and combinations, I would recommend it for anybody going to Las Vegas and they are supposed to be opening in Los Angeles soon, I’m just hoping its going to be very soon.

Lamborghini Estoque

Most supercar companies that have been around for a while try to diversify the amount and types of cars they have. Adding a four door has to happen for them, I think it would be fantastic and this car looks amazing. I don’t they should make an SUV but a four door Lamborghini has to happen if it looks like this.

Rumors are always afloat about this car, but the latest one has got people talking. Lamborghini “will import its super luxury four-door sedan, Lamborghini Estoque to China for local production in 2012 with a price tag of around 4 million yuan ($589,000).” The target will be the Aston Martin Rapide, but I think the Rapide can’t compete with the Esqotue on looks or quality. The interior of the car reminds of the Air Force F117A Stealth Fighter from the Gulf War, it looks like a machine with stealth fighting capabilities. This will add a much needed 3rd car to the brand, and I’m hoping that it comes out sooner then later as its an amazing looking machine.

Lambos On the Pacific Coast

Those are some very nice looking Lamborghinis driving in Los Angeles being followed by a helicotper. I don’t know what the point of this whole video but that road is a very nice piece of the Pacific Coast Highway, I have driven there a few years back, I even remember renting a Corvette C6 Convertible when it first came out in 2005 and driving it down those roads, and in those Gallardos it looks inticing. The music is a bit annoying and I would have preferred the sound of the machines, but still damn good.

Lamborghini Estoque In The Wild

Now this is a machine that many have been anticipating, and I for one think its the best looking high end four door out in the market. They named the car after the sword of the Bull Fighter called the Estoque, its a name befitting this machine. The press release was a little while ago, and now its spotted in Italy and appropriately next to the Gallardo Police of Italy. This machine looks better in real life then it does in the pictures, and it looks good from every angle.

The Estoque will have the same engine as the LP560-4, with 552 bhp at its command. There is no doubt that this car carry’s Lamborghini’s style and sprot perfectly, but surprisingly it looks spacious from the insides and I’m hoping that Lamborghini have gone ahead put a lot of goodies inside. Now we just have to wait for the shocking price to come out, but I estimate it to be between $170’000 to $220’000 based on other manufacturers who have made vehicles in this range and level.

Corvette ZR1 vs. Lamborghini 670 SV

Corvette ZR1 640 bhp, RWD Journalist Driving
Lamborghini 670 SV 670 bhp, AWD Lamborghini Track Driver

Two very different machines which are the perfection of their manufacturers chasing each other down side roads. The challenge is simple can the Autocar journalist in a Corvette ZR1 keep up with the Factory test driver in the Lamborghini 670 SV. These machines are both works of art, I’m still biased towards the Corvette, its just such a piece of work and so much fun.

Lamborghini Academy

They have opened up a new track training program and this one does seems to be interesting. For only 3900 Euros you get two days Track Training, One Day Theory, and One Day Track Day with the LP-560-4. The track car is a beast of a machine, and you have an instructor with you in the car, teaching you what to do to get the most out of your car.

The more interesting part of this academy is the Lamborghini Winter Track training which is done in the snow. This is the first time to see something like that, but I wouldn’t mind trying it out.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 named Robb Report Car of the Year

Robb Report rated this as the car of the year! I can’t blame them, seriously this is a beautiful and excellently engineered machine from Lamborghini. It has the looks, handles like its on rails, and takes off like a rocket. The combination of power and precision you get from this engine and four-wheel-drive system is unprecedented.

Japan Manga Cars

This is probably the coolest set of cars a person can have and they are all owned by one Yoshida San. Yoshida is a matured gentlemen, an avid gamer, and the owner of AGE SOFT a video game software house. I can’t believe how funky these cars look with the manga on it, I really like what he is done even though many will not appreciate it, but in Japan they are beautiful.
