Bidding farewell to a pair of culture shifting vehicles

This past month two automotive legends ceased production, their spirits rising into the Great Pantheon of Iconic Cars in the sky. Two vehicles that defined terminally opposite points of the spectrum, different in pricepoint, performance, utility, powertrain, spirit… well, just about everything. Even the reasons for ending their lifecycle could not be more different, but […]

Car porn for your Monday afternoon pick-me-up

If your heart’s not pitter-pattering at the thought of seeing the first footage of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in real life action, then me and you are very different people. Lambo fulfilled an amazing feat with its latest supercar, advancing the signature lines of its halo vehicle while evolving it into its own proper, singular […]

The Gallardo gets the SuperVeloce treatment

Last year Lambo announced the SuperVeloce version of its halo supercar, the Murciélago. Since, rumors have circulated of a SuperVeloce version of the Baby Lambo, the Gallardo. Well now some images have surfaced giving much heft to the possibility. You know Lambo’s not done with the Gallardo body style yet (how many years does it […]

Lamborghini returns to the world of frontal engines...at least in fantasy land

I’m really loving this concept Lamborghini — titled the Toro LA 690-4. Designed by University of Montreal industrial design student Amadou Ndiaye, the car is a modern revision of the classic Lamborghini Espada, but does an excellent job of incorporating modern Lambo design elements — especially those of the Reventon. The “LA” stands for “Longituinale […]
