The End of an Era

The Murciélago may be gone, but it will never be forgotten.

The “end of production” of the Murciélago was celebrated in the factory on November 5, 2010, with a special exhibition of the most iconic V12 cars of Lamborghini’s history, followed by a parade in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
Supersportcars like the 350 GT, the Miura, the Countach and the Diablo escorted a Murciélago SV of the Lamborghini Museum during a symbolic “last ride” out of the gate of the Lamborghini factory.

Pagani Zonda Tricolore

Such a pretty car. I love the painted carbon fiber with the Italian national flag in small pinstripes going along the entire car.

On the occasion of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the “Frecce Tricolori”, Pagani Automobili created the Zonda Tricolore as a tribute to the National Aerobatic Team.

In 2010 the aerobatic season of the Frecce Tricolori comes to its 50th anniversary, wich will be celebrated on 11th and 12th September at Rivolto Airport (info: http://www.aeronautica.difesa.it).

The Frecce Tricolori (Italian, literally Tricolour Arrows), officially known as the 313th Aerobatic Training Squadron is the demonstration team of the Italian Air Force, based at Rivolto Air Force Base, in the north-eastern Italian region of Friuli Venezia-Giulia, province of Udine. They were formed in 1961 as an Air Force team, replacing previous teams that had been sponsored by various commands by the end of the 1920s.

The team flies the Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN, a two-seat aircraft capable of 898 km/h at sea level, with nine aircraft and a solo (the highest number of aircraft of any aerobatic team in the world).

The Frecce Tricolori belong to the legacy of the entire italian community.


Loaded E46 M3 CSL

I posted one of these pictures a long time ago, but I found more and decided to post them as well.

This was the same beast that posted a time of 7:22.8 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife back in 2007.  Sofuckingfast.


The Old Workhorse

I love the LS small block V8…it’s just SO good.  This example is the 7.0-litre race spec LS from the Corvette Racing C5-R.
