Italian Exotic Icons: Ferrari F40(Jun 07, 2012)This is the only Ferrari I will ever buy. If I can find one in the correct color, with the right history and upkeep (and the right price), I will buy it. I've worked smart and hard to get to where I'm at, and one day soon, my car will be for sale.
Not sure why I waxed poetic a out it, but I've owned several exotics, but this has always been at the top if my list.
Lincoln MKF Design Study Grabs Our Attention(Jun 07, 2012)You guys are trying too hard to not like this. I see zero Camaro in the front of this. With the protruding nose, and the hard lines in front of the wheel arches? No, no Camaro here. The only thing in common is the long hood and gun slit windows, but then the 300 has those does that mean the Camaro looks like the 300? If anything, thus is very 300ish, but much sleeker.
Brazil’s First Supercar Renamed DoniRosset(Jun 05, 2012)Preston, you've obviously never owned nor known anyone that owned a Lamborghini.
This is actually quite refreshing compared to my Gallardo. Longer nose, more dramatic lines, and more exclusive.
Brazil’s First Supercar Renamed DoniRosset(Jun 05, 2012)Preston, if you weren't such a young kid, you would know this, and most Brazilian cars are quite unique looking.
Get some perspective before you type or talk.
$3.8 Million Vintage Mercedes Stolen in WWII Heading Back to Rightful Owners(Jun 04, 2012)I think they forgot what happens when you're on the losing end of the war...
Why is this even an issue? Only a selfish, self-righteous prick would pull this kind of crap. If I lost this in court, I'd destroy the car, after I got my jollies in it, and drove the wheels off. In short, I'd get my 3.8m out of it.
I hate frivolous litigation, and this is a great example.
Steven Tyler Officially Reveals His Hennessey Venom GT Spyder(May 30, 2012)As someone with a few high end cars, I see the speed appeal, but I wouldn't part with 1.1m for this. I would take my Gallardo to UR and get the same performance, better looks, quality, brand, pedigree, for half the price.
This is a dick measuring stick to size up with the Tautara, Veyron, CCX, Agera, etc, and when compared to those, this is rather boring.
Steven Tyler Officially Reveals His Hennessey Venom GT Spyder(May 30, 2012)OK, I finally found something I really like about this car: the stitching on the pads.
So far the rest isn't worth a million to me. I think its being artificially kept high due to a very small run. If they were doing 100 cars, this would be 600 large, and would be about right for what it is. For 1.1mil I want something that will be noticed, this is too easy to ignore and looks like a kit. Sorry Steve, but your project doesn't match the S7.
Special Edition Renault Twingo RS Red Bull Racing RB7 Revealed(May 26, 2012)As for the center stack, the only thing that matters for driving on the track is the tachometer. The rest is just a distraction, and rarely are needed.
I drive by the tach alone even on the street most times, if not by sound alone. If I'm looking at the speedo, its only to check what gear I'm in while on the street. In my fully manual transmission cars I only check it to verify speed before setting cruise. Eyes up at all times.
McLaren Launch MP4-12C in Abu Dhabi with Stunning Video(May 24, 2012)If there's no drama in it, what makes it any different than a Corvette or a camaro for that matter? Its not just speed, but that sense of being on the ragged edge, doing something purely amazing, where you have to be on your game or there will be consequences. Look at the few that underestimated their Lamborghinis recently. The fact that the bulls are nuts is part of the mystique.
McLaren Launch MP4-12C in Abu Dhabi with Stunning Video(May 23, 2012)Drove one at VIR. Its an amazing car, but it is missing something. Its not soul, but more like...danger. Its so well engineered that it never feels out of sorts, and has absurdly high limits. You never feel like you're going to beat the car. Never like it's going to snap, turn into the Hulk, and kill you. Its amazing. A bit boring to look at though.
Japanese Sports Cars, Part 4: The Mazda MX-5 Miata(May 17, 2012)Two motorcycle engines put together by Radical Motorsports. Early prototype based on two 1000cc engines. I think they're making a 2.4l now.
Revs like a bike, sounds like an f1 v8 at full whack. Easy to drive, easy to enjoy.
Another Lamborghini Fail - Gallardo Spyder LP560-4 Kisses the Curb(May 17, 2012)To be blunt, those of you that want to hate on this guy because of unrelated accidents need to get over yourselves. No one was in immediate danger. No one was injured. No property was damaged. In fact, other than a scrape on the curb, this looked like good, safe, fun.
Another Lamborghini Fail - Gallardo Spyder LP560-4 Kisses the Curb(May 17, 2012)I saw the other video. He wasn't showboating for a camera. That was a normal, run of the mill fender bender.
This was a "no one is in the immediate area, lets do something fun" moment. No one was hurt, and had be nailed it, most would have called him a parking lot hero.
Japanese Sports Cars, Part 5: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution(May 17, 2012)OK, there was a mention of the Galant. I should have read the whole thing first, however, even though the evolution cars were amazing, what made them so was the cost. Racing coats were cheap, consumer coats were cheap. It was a cheap, fun car. Where the GTO wasn't cheap, but was amazingly fast and stable.
Japanese Sports Cars, Part 5: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution(May 17, 2012)Great to tweak, but not a driver's car. Too many intrusive computers. Its a tool for fast driving, but like the GTR, when I drove it, I didn't feel connected. Fast,? Yeah. Rewarding? No.
I will stick to older models that require a human to do more than sit in the seat.
