SEMA 2012!!

stang

Last week was the insane automotive event called S.E.M.A, a gathering of everything car related, all the companies in the car industry and everyone looking for the next big thing in car culture. Most companies go to show off their product and hope it is well received by the public. Many companies also come from around the world to buy products they can sell to their customers. All in all it is a ridiculous assault of the gear head senses on every level. So here is our humble attempt at bringing all the SEMA insanity to you, hope you enjoy! The Fatlace/Falken GTR is pretty much the first thing...

Formula D Irwindale!!

For the final round of the Formula D Championship, rather than post pics of the drifting you no doubt already saw plastered all over the place we figured we’d share images of the rest of the scene at Irwindale. Even though the vendor/car show area seemed rather small compared to other events from the past there was still plenty to see and drool over in the automotive and female variety.

Gallardo cosmetic update

The Gallardos are the most successful cars in Lamborghini’s 49-year history, almost 13,000 rolling out of showrooms since their 2003 introduction. That’s almost beneath notice for the Volkswagen Group, Lamborghini’s parent, but it’s a lot in the world of quarter-million-dollar exotics. And of course Lamborghini wants those robust sales to continue. Which means tantalizing new customers. Lambo cosmetic surgeons have nipped and tucked the Gallardo design to keep it looking new, and that’s what this Paris debutante represents—a freshening, while the factory at Sant’Agata, Italy,...

RR Hyperion up for sale, yet again.

The design house Pininfarina has given us some of the best looking cars of all time, such as the 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, 1963 Chevrolet Corvair Super Spyder Coupé, 1984 Ferrari Testarossa, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and Maserati Quattroporte. The Rolls-Royce Hyperion was also designed by the Italians and went on sale for a third time in less than four years. Having been listed on Jameslist.com back in 2009 for a price of €4.5 million and again in Dubai in 2011, the one-off supercar unveiled at Monterey 2008 is once again up for sale and this time the price is even lower.
