Found in Munich, Germany.
JF Musial of Drive goes to Italy and talks with Valentino Balboni. He also reviews a Gallardo LP560 spyder. A really great video with some insights into Valentino’s rise to success as the head Lamborghini test driver.
The Frankfurt Auto Show is on now and there are many new models coming out. I will go through my thoughts on each one that I found to be notable and interesting. Read the rest of this entry »
Given the title of this post, I hope you guys are expecting to see some shots of beautiful specimens of the Raging Bulls. All these pictures that you are about to see were taken by me at Le Belle Macchine d’Italia. Le Belle Macchine took place in the Pocono Mountains from the 24th of June to the 27th. It is considered to be the largest Italian car show in the US and this year got a bump from 3 days to 4 days. Friday and Saturday was the Concorso d’Eleganza held at Mt. Airy Resort and Casino, and Sunday and Monday were the 2 days that cars were able to show off their power at Pocono International Raceway, where they were kinda enough to open up the road circuit part in the infield. For more information, here is their website. If you are interested in attending one, they have 2012′s scheduled for the Poconos, and they also have one in the fall in Daytona! http://www.italiancarevents.com/

The Lamborghini Gallardo is a fantastic, well-executed supercar for the street. Like most cars in this sector, it is still impractical in many regards, but nowhere near to the degree of the Murcielago. Overall though, it can be quite useable as a second car, that you drive for fun on nice days, because it is practical enough for most basic tasks, and a lot more fun than your other car would be.
This winter, I was unbelievably fortunate and had the chance to drive my first Ferrari and my first Lamborghini back-to-back on the racetrack. What ensued was an unbelievable experience. My review along with more pictures, videos, and sounds are just one click away. Videos may be NSFW due to language. Read the rest of this entry »
