Say you are an exceptionally wealthy individual with a penchant for the automotive that far exceeds amassing as many mid-engined Ferraris as your garage can hold. What if you are the type of well-heeled connoisseur that knows that one incredibly rare car can outweigh a full stable of supercars. Then you would appreciate the impetus behind the Bertone Mantide.
Italian car manufacturing is more than just a business, it’s an art. From Lamborghini to Ferrari to Maserati (just to name a few) — the Italian cars are historically filled with beauty and passion in design. Fast forward to Pagani then, with its sharp body lines and million-dollar price tag. Their latest Huayra is a thing of perfection, and XCar got to drive it.
Remember when Lamborghini unveiled the Veneno and comparisons of a fighter jet came to mind? Yeah, well Lamborghini took those comments to heart, and revealed the all-new Veneno Roadster on the flight deck of an Italian aircraft carrier in Abu Dhabi.
It’s apparently “Cyber Monday,” meaning if you didn’t stand in line like a derelict for a $39 DVD player at Best Buy, now’s your chance to buy some cool gifts. We’ll have some great car-centric gift ideas throughout the month of December, but for now, you…er…we mean your KIDS are going to love these awesome RC cars on sale in 2013.
By now, many of you have probably learned of the passing of actor and Fast and the Furious staple, Paul Walker. It was perhaps tragically ironic that Walker died in a fiery, single-vehicle car crash, as a passenger in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. He was attending an event for his own charity, Reach Out World Wide, which helps raise funds to send emergency responders to disaster-stricken areas.
In this holiday season, we have much to be thankful for. As automotive types, it always feels like the walls are closing in on us. With automated gearboxes, rising fuel economy regulations, and more intrusive safety tech, it seems like were losing the battle for ‘awesome.’ The small amount of unbridled vehicular excellence left in the automotive world is something to be cherished. Here are the things for which BoldRide is thankful. (Without these items, we’d probably be out of a job)
Yesterday, we learned that the last Lamborghini Gallardo rolled off the production line. The highly-specialized LP570-4 Spyder Performante was a fittingly wild conclusion to Lamborghini’s most successful vehicle run. But it got us thinking– the Spyder Performante, in addition to being fun to say, is also just one of many special edition Gallardos to roll out of Sant’Agata Bolognese. Here are all of them, from the oldest to the newest.
famous infamous for adding a touch of insanity to some of the world’s most capable sportscars. Like the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari F12, and many others before it, the McLaren MP4-12C was the latest in a long lineup to get the DMC treatment. But insanity isn’t always a bad thing.
Here, you see the very last Lamborghini Gallardo to roll off an assembly line. The Italian supercar maker elected to end with a bang, and the model is a very special Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante. It marks the end of the highest selling vehicle that Lamborghini has ever built and the vehicle that helped resurrect the supercar brand.
One of the funny things about an office is that since everyone dresses mostly the same, you look for any avenue with which to assert your individuality. Festive ties and coffee mugs with your alma mater or favorite sports team only go so far. If you’re a car guy that means you should take that motivational poster off the wall (you know the one– with the bald eagle that says “PERSERVERANCE”) and replace it with one of these epic car cutaways of famous racing vehicles.
