supercar of the day. Mangusta.

one of the most evil, rare, influential, and fascinating supercars ever….the DeTomaso Mangusta (1966-1971)


401 Mangustas were built, about 200 of the european version, with 4 headlamps and Ford 289 Cu.In. engine, and the rest are USA version, with 2 “pop up” headlamps and less powerful Ford 302 engines. One car was built with Chevrolet engine. There are reported to be fewer than 120 left in existence, according to the 2 available registry databases.

McLaren MP4-12C: how to build an unimaginative, ugly, and boring supercar.

The McLaren MP4 can do blahblahblahblahblah in blah.blah seconds.  It can reach a top speed of blahblahblahblahblah.  It has technology everywhere, including a blahblahblahblahblahblah….it is the successor to the legendary blahblahblahblahblah.

Don’t even care.  It’s so bland and painfully boring from every angle.  It looks like a rejected 90s build-your-own-supercar-kit-car.  Yeah you copied a Ferrari from the front, you copied the outline of an R8, and you tried add some Lamborghini-ness……BLAH BLAH BLAH.  blech.

Hey McLaren! YOU SUKZ AT DESIGN!  try again sometime…..

Long before there was ever an Audi R8 or Audi TT, there were a series of interesting sports car concepts from Audi.  One of the most memorable was this 1991 Audi Quattro Spyder Concept. I still have no idea why they didn’t make it….it looked spectacularly cool.

how Denmark produces evil: Zenvo ST1

2009-zenvo-st1-front-angle-3-1920x1440jpg

I’m not a big fan of  modern supercars….most of them aren’t evil enough….they’re more for the dumb-with-small-cocks (oh hello there FERRARI!) of society who have the money, but don’t have the soul.  There are exceptions to this of course…..ahem….several exceptions.  This is definitely one of them.  Probably the most evil supercar i’ve seen lately…..and even cooler as it is the first supercar ever from Denmark!

I don’t even care if it is able to handle the 1100+ hp engine, or if it will be able to handle any turns (although the video on the official site is quite praising of its handling), because it looks INCREDIBLE.  Evil just might have returned to supercars…….introducing the Zenvo ST1.
