Espada.

last week, i visited a classic car dealership with my mate Brad from the Automobiliac Blog.  We both scrounged through their classic cars, and both of us were fascinating by 2 cars in particular; 2 Alfa Romeo Montreals, and a Lamborghini Espada (that had a *cough* transplanted Corvette engine).  I still haven’t gotten around to making a post about that visit to Gullwing Motors in Astoria, NYC—-but i will this week with some photos.

In the meantime though, i’ve been mentally admiring the uniqueness and beauty of both of those cars; the Montreal and the Espada.

Some nicer Espadas than the one we saw….truly one of the most stunning supercars ever made.

GT5 details for Japan.

i’m not a big video game buff, but damn i gotta say i’ve HUGELY enjoyed the Gran Turismo series over the years.  So many classic cars, new cars, supercars, regular cars, modifying, some of the world’s greatest tracks, places i don’t think i’ll ever go to…..it’s like being able to enact a dream garage as realistically as possible……..

I haven’t bought a PS3, but i’m definitely ready to buy one when GT5 (Gran Turismo 5) comes out.  And now, FINALLY, after what seems like several years of rumours and gossip; it seems there are some concrete details!

November 3rd is the day it goes on sale in Japan.  What does that mean for us? I have no idea—they’ll probably try to create some cheesy holiday chaos for it, so that none of us will be able to find it…bastards.  But in Japan, they will get a special GT5 Edition PS3 bundled package.  This is the package I would buy, if they make it available here—here’s to hoping they do.  Check out the photo below for what it’ll look like.

faster beast: Bugatti Veyron Super Sport!

CLICK ON ANY OF THE PICS TO GET HI-RES

No, 1001 HP simply wasn’t enough!  It is now 1200 HP, and the top speed is now officially 267 mph, which makes it THE fastest road car in the world…………..again!

It is quite simply the fastest, most outrageous, maddest, and amazing car in the world—-and it’s been reborn to be even better.

Jaguar XK-R 75

Jaguar has been a pretty boring company for several years now, although lately it’s all been improving dramatically.  One of the significant problems is the current lack of identity, however.  Everytime i see a ‘new’ Jaguar sedan, it looks like a cross between an Audi A6 wannabe and a Jaguar.  What happened to the identity, lads!?

Anyways, the new XK-R 75 looks pretty damn slick.  530hp, 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, limited edition to celebrate 75 years of Jaguar.  Pretty interesting paint job going on as well…

the art of Nicolas Cancelier

Thanks to Motorsport Retro for turning me on to this artist, Nicolas Cancelier. Some great stuff going on here, I especially love the colours he is using to capture the time of these cars.  Very cool.   These are available for purchase as large, high quality prints as well.  Please inquire with Nicolas directly through the links provided.

foto of the day. Islero.

along with the Lamborghini Espada, this Lamborghini Islero is one of my absolute favourite Lamborghinis ever made.  It followed the original 350GT and 400GT as a reskinned version of those. The styling on this is gorgeous….the first time i saw one in person, i was blown away.   Gorgeous.  Ferrari? Who needs old Ferraris……i’d happily take me an Espada and an Islero for a fraction of the price…
