National Geographic has some documentaries on supercars, and this is a recent one on the Pagani Huayra. It takes you all through the development of the car and shows you many behind the scenes aspects that make Pagani so special. I know it is 45min long, but if you have the time I strongly recommend you watch it.
Ferraris always have a special place at an Italian car show. In many ways they are the corner stone of such events. Sure, seeing more obscure cars is always great, but the presence of numerous Ferraris, however generic they may be, serves as a sort of foundation on which the day can be judged. Going to car shows as much as I do, you kind of get used to seeing 360s, F430s, 458s, etc, but they are always brilliant in their own right. That is what this gallery is about, the majesty of the Prancing Horse. Enjoy.
EVO reviews the incredible new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Enjoy.
Going to the Pagani factory changed my life. There is something uniquely special about the way they do things and the cars they make that just captivated me. This video from Drive shows many of these qualities very well. I know the video is nearly a half hour, but if you have the time you should give it a watch. Definitely listen to everything Horacio Pagani says too because he is a passionate and genius. Amazing video!

Notice how Mr. Pagani happens to be an absolute savage behind the wheel of his creation, doing unimaginable speeds down little single lane italian back roads. Also check out how the Huayra’s key is actually a small sculpture of the car itself. This is just incredible, everything about the Huayra is just awesome, and listen to that twin turbo V12!!! This shows exactly what I was talking about in my recent article on Pagani, everything is a masterpiece.

The purpose of a car is to serve as a form of transportation that can take people and their things hundreds of miles with ease. As a basic rule, the average person needs such transportation to be practical, affordable, and useful in all of their daily personal functions. So what happens when a car is none of these things? What happens when a car becomes more than a bunch of nuts and bolts and is liberated from the chains of mundane reality by the vision of a single man whose passion knows no boundaries? The answer is that the car itself becomes the focus rather than the destination of travel. When not governed by real world concerns a car is free to become a living, breathing work of art, more something to be experienced than a tool to be used. It ventures into the realm of the extraordinary in a world so held down by the lame nature of the masses. Read the rest of this entry »
