Police Supercars

BrabusRocketPolice

When people think police they don’t think Supercars or machines that can fly past a helicopter, but there are a few countries with high speed police that can chase you down. Well at least these police departments have some interesting machines to chase people, I know that some of them are for show but I know the Italian Polizia have used their vehicle during chases.

  • Germany – Brabus Rocket – Top Speed: 362 kph
  • Dubai – Lamborghini Aventador – 349 kph
  • Italy – Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder – Polizia Municipale – 324 kph
  • Belgium – Porsche 911 997 Turbo – 312 kph
  • Holland – Spyker C8 – Flevoland Police – 300 kph
  • Italy – Lotus Evora S – Carbinieri – 261 kph

50th Anniversary Lamborghini Event

LamborghiniGrandeTour1

Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary in style, and that includes a gathering of 350 ‘raging bull’ branded cars, which would take the tour starting from Milan up until Bologna, the end-point being the headquarters of Lamborghini! You know what, not all Lamborghinis were welcomed to join its 50th Anniversary Grand Tour. The brand had allowed only the modern and vintage model entry, that too with a valid license plate.

LamborghiniGrandeTour2

Thanks to the filtering, the fleet of supercars from the brand has been an interesting mix: 350 GTs, 400 GTs, Miuras, Espadas, Jaramas, Urracos, Countaches, LM 002, Diablos and Murcielagos. The five-day long tour from May 7 to May 11 would pass through breathtaking landscapes of Lombardia, Toscana, Lazio, Umbria and Emilia Romagna, stopping over in Forte Dei Marmi, Grosseto, Roma, San Giustino Valdarno and Bologna, where they will arrive on May 10.

LamborghiniGrandeTour3

So many beautiful machines in this event, out of the 350 beautiful Italian machines participating there are a few that are participating from Kuwait. How much better could it get to have a high speed escort across Italy being led by a Lamborghini Police Car. I spot four cars from Kuwait in the video, three together in the middle of the video and one orange one towards the 3/4’s of the video. So many beautiful colors, and some of the machines are a bit over the top but still fun, loved the sound of the exhausts in the video.

Bugatti Veyron vs Lamborghini Aventador vs Lexus LFA vs McLaren MP4-12C

This is just a ridiculous race that just has to be seen, I for one am not a fan of Bugatti Veyron. As for the other machine, I’m much more of a fan of the other cars. There were a few surprises for me during this drag race, but it isn’t always about the straight line, some of these machines perform very differently on the track.

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.

Arab Playboys Race Their Supercars Around London

It seems that Bloomberg News finally caught up with our report last month on the cabal of mega-rich Arab playboys who made London the world’s supercar capital this summer, shipping an estimated $80 million worth of eye-popping vehicles to the city while waiting out the heat in the UAE. As we noted at the time, Bugatti Veyrons have been seen cruising in Knightsbridge and making Mayfair seem more like Le Mans, while both the Bugatti a Pagani Zonda Cinque, one of only five in the world, are often parked at the Dorchester Hotel where some of the super-rich studs are staying. Rolls-Royces, custom Mercedes-McLaren SLRs, Lamborghinis, Koenigseggs, Ferraris and more are commonplace in certain posh neighborhoods, where protest groups have been formed to combat the problem. Of course, all those powerful machines in a densely populated area sometimes leads to trouble. Check out some of the video footage assembled by Bloomberg on the subject.

I recognized the parking lot of the Dorchester and all the license plates were from the UAE and Qatar. The image that these guys are projecting of the GCC countries is just horrible, these guys will never really learn. Before these guys it was the Russians that were going crazy in London but these guys over run London in the summer.

Lexus LFA vs Nissan GT-R

An epic battle between two amazing Japanese machines, I think this is the question many have been asking, for all the technology and development of the Lexus LFA is it faster then the Nissan GT-R. Luckily MotorTrend Managed to get their hands on one LFA to try against their Nissan GT-R. The LFA sounds amazing and they are drifting it around corners, and sliding into the next, what a machine.
