Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition at Driven by Purpose

Lamborghini Countach 25th Driven by Purpose 1

This has to be the most pristine Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition I’ve ever seen in person. It had just 2,000 miles on it, and was brought in on the back of a truck. I normally roll my eyes when people don’t drive their cars to shows, but given that this has become a classic, and has such low mileage, I give it a pass.

This Lambo looks great with NYC. Enjoy the pics!

Some Highlights from Cars and Caffe at Garden State Plaza

Porsche Carrera GTs at Garden State Plaza

Cars and Caffe at Garden State Plaza was incredible yesterday. I hadn’t been before, and I didn’t really expect it to be quite as big an event as it was. There were thousands of people, and hundreds of cars, many of which were top-tier hypercars. The Holy Trinity was in attendance, as well as 2 Paganis, 4 or 5 Carrera GTs, an F50, Ben Chen’s Panda Bugatti, and Team Salamone’s incredible Avantador SV.¬†Also of note, I finally got to see my first Callaway C12 Corvette in person, after having the AutoArt model on my shelf for years.

There were some great sights and sounds throughout the day, and I was blown away with the turnout. It’s kind of crazy to see people rolling up in a cars like a Ferrari 488 and barely being noticed. The rest of the parking lot was a sea of Ferraris, McLarens, Lamborghinis, and Porsches. I will definitely plan on attending the events next year, and I urge everyone in the Tri-State Area to do the same.

Enjoy these highlights. There’s a lot more to come!

Lamborghini Huracan Performante at Driven By Purpose

Lamborghini Huracan Performante at Driven by Purpose

Lamborghini’s recently dethroned (but still insanely awesome) Nurburgring champ was at Driven By Purpose last weekend. Lamborghini corporate was kind enough to lend the car for the event, and people loved it. White and black is always a stunning combination on an angular Lamborghini shape, and I love the tricolore stripes down the side.

Highlights from Driven By Purpose’s New York Harbor Iconic Event

Bugatti Veyron SS NYC

Driven By Purpose hosted their New York Harbor Iconic Event this past weekend, benefitting Make-A-Wish New Jersey. This capped off a wonderful weekend my girlfriend had in Jersey City / NYC. She works for Make-A-Wish and I volunteer at many of the larger events, which (obviously) can have some perks.

Some really incredible cars showed up, and the scenery of Manhattan at Liberty State Park was totally breathtaking. I’m really looking forward to next year’s event, which is supposed to be even bigger and even better.

Enjoy this highlight gallery, there’s a lot more where this came from.

The Lamborghini Centenario LP-770-4 is unbelievable in person

Lamborghini Centenario 2

This is the ultra-exotic Lamborghini Centenario LP-770-4, one of just 20 that will grace this Earth. For me it was a surprise star at the Greenwich Concours because I hadn’t heard it would attend, and I certainly hadn’t seen one before.

The Centenario is a special edition Lamborghini for people who don’t want a “typical” Lamborghini, and who can afford to have something more. It looks absolutely outrageous, even though underneath the fancy body it’s basically just a slightly upgraded Aventador SV. For around the price of three or four Aventador SVs, you get to be in the 1 of 20 club, and have a Lambo that is extra extra insane looking. You also get to be ahead of the curve, as the Centenario paves the way for the next generation of Lamborghini styling. It is a very exclusive experience to be sure.

I must say, I first saw the Centenario and went, “Meh…” because I knew it was just an Aventador SV in a different, albeit awesome, outfit. I think the Aventador is one of the best looking cars out there right now, and the Centenario initially didn’t impress me much by comparison. Seeing it in person changed my mind, though. The carbon fiber details are exquisite, and it seems another notch or two up from an Aventador. As an object to behold, the Lamborghini Centenario is a whole new level of Lamborghini.

It was incredible seeing this car in the flesh, and getting to shoot it. It puts on one hell of a visual show. For me though, I still have a lot of trouble getting past its Aventador underpinnings when it comes to the $2 million question. The Aventador SV is such a show-stopper in it’s own right. I saw an SV parked at another even a few days later, and I couldn’t get enough of it. Money-no-object, I think I’d still take the SV over a Centenario.

The Centenario represents one of the ultimate collector Lamborghinis ever made. It’s an impressive showpiece for a billionaire who wants to impress other billionaires. I just find its purpose to be too superficial for my own taste, though. Frankly, if I’m looking for a car in the seven-figure range, it won’t be a six-figure car with a body kit.

The Centenario is an incredible work of art. I appreciate the hell out of it, even though it’s not really my taste. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and photographing this one, and I hope you enjoy the gallery.

Some Highlights From the CF Charities Supercar Show in Philadelphia

Lamborghini Aventador

We attended the CF Charities Supercar Show at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia this weekend. This was the first year for the event in Philly, and we liked the new venue a lot. There were some truly incredible cars, and there’s a lot more to come, but here are some highlights for starters.

Enjoy!

Lamborghini Aventador SV spotted in New Hope, PA

Lamborghini Aventador SV New Hope 5

Seeing a high-level exotic car, like this Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster at a car event is a thrill, but seeing it out in the wild is something totally different. Only when such a machine is surrounded by everyday normal things can you fully appreciate the true magnitude of its insanity. There’s also the psychological factor of expectation, at a car show you expect to see remarkable cars, but I was standing in a cigar shop with my buddies when this thing rode by. I suddenly recognized the note of a ferocious V12 going by, and I looked out the window just in time to see the blue shape of an Aventador with a massive wing on the back… it had to be an SV!

We went looking for the car, and checked the valet parking lot of one fancy restaurant I’ve seen other exotics at. My hunch paid off, and we got to enjoy taking the car in for a few minutes. This SV was a spectacular spec, matte candy blue over black interior with blue and carbon accents.

There are always many nice cars cruising around New Hope, PA, but this is definitely one of the nicest I’ve seen there.

Also of note, this was the third Aventador SV I had the privilege of laying eyes on this weekend, so that was nice…

Enjoy!

My take on the 2017 Geneva Motor Show

The Geneva Motor Show happened this week, and every year it’s like Christmas has come for the car industry.

Here are the highlights for me, and my thoughts on each…

Ferrari 812 Superfast

The front-engine V12 Ferraris are by far my favorite Ferraris. They have always been the ultimate expression of what a grand touring car can be, and their lineage goes all the way back to the beginning of Ferrari road cars in the early 1950s.

The 812 Superfast takes the insanity of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, and takes it up yet another notch. With damn near 800hp on tap from its still-naturally-aspirated-V12 engine, the 812 Superfast is now the ultimate GT car (really more of a supercar) that money can buy. I also think it looks absolutely manic, yet somehow still in an elegant sort of way.

Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

Do you think anyone ever imagined this when the Toyota Prius first came out? Hybrids were once pathetic little econo-boxes, but here is a 680hp Porsche Panamera with a hybrid system developed from the 918 hypercar. This is exactly how hybrid technology should be used. I want a 680hp bullet that can still get decent MPG when I’m not thrashing it. If nothing else, isn’t technology all about having your cake and eating it too?
