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.
Out walking around Carmel, CA after a car show during Concours week. Saw the Veyron from a distance and could not believe it. Got my camera out and had at it. Took a while to notice the LP-640 beside it, and I didn’t even notice the ‘Vette Z06 till I was looking at the pictures later that day. The Vette is like the whipped cream on the sundae, mediocre but it makes the whole thing a bit better. More pics inside.

Of the six cars I drove on the Gotham tour the one I would want in my driveway has to be the Gallardo LP-560 Spyder. It offers all of that supercar feel, speed, performance, and image, but with none of the drawbacks of the Murcielago. Although because it lacks some of that outrageous idiocy, it is very different than its bigger brother for better and worse in various ways, but as a car, that will be driven in the imperfect and chaotic world, it is far better.

I’m going to start by listing all of the awful things about the Murcielago. It is hard to get in and out of, the driver position is awkward and not straight, the seat pokes you in many places and isn’t very comfortable, it has a small trunk that is almost useless, The steering is really heavy, the car feels absurdly huge, you have to avoid every pothole (expensive fix if you don’t), you have to be careful not to cut turns because you may scrape the car (like in a box truck), the car is cramped, there are blind spots everywhere except directly in front of you, its offensively impractical and vulgarly ostentatious, Its wider than the lane, rearview mirror is useless and only show you the engine, the side mirrors are useless and only show you the intakes for the engine, it is terrible on gas, nothing on the car is conventional or easy, no part of the car is socially acceptable, and because of the money at stake and the blindness, it is a terrifying car to drive and extremely stressful. So what is the appeal then? Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
