  1. They really pulled out all the stops, glad you had a good time. What was the highlight for you?
  2. Looks like an incredible event as always! Nice work. Is that a real 935 converted to EV?! Please tell me it's a kit car and not a real one ruined?
  3. If you talk real slow, you don't have to have near as much material!
  4. Anything that came to the States from Holden was so such a lazy attempt at re-branding by GM, it put a bad taste in the mouth of many for them I'd think. I grew up in the domestic crowd so I always aligned more with GM performance than others, but I don't object to any of them now that I'm older. Each has its own merits. The electrification is coming sadly, but the coal power plants will have to ramp up production to keep up with the demand if we move the population to that kind of fleet. That being said, check this out. They revamped a 69 Camaro to all electric with a three-pedal manual. It's pretty cool, although I wouldn't ruin a genuine vintage camaro for it. You can just buy a chassis and refab body to do that kind of stuff with. So there will always be fun, just not how I think we are used to unfortunately. http://www.speedhunters.com/2020/02/pure-electric-power/
  5. In a not so surprising move, General Motors announced it is killing off the Holden brand in Australia and New Zealand. Guess they are making good on going all electric fleet, which sucks. Either that means they'll turn the Corvette all electric or kill it eventually. Thoughts? Source: https://www.motor1.com/news/399009/holden-to-be-axed-australia/
  6. Automobili Lamborhgini continues its brand expansion in an agreement Principle to create leather goods and travel collections. Compared to the stuff we've seen in years past, this stuff looks palatable and nice. The backpacks especially look like something I'd be happy to get. Press release at the end of the photos. -- PRESS RELEASE -- Sant’Agata Bolognese, 7 February 2020 – Automobili Lamborghini and Principe, an Italian company specializing in leather goods, have signed a license agreement for the development, production and distribution of a leather goods and travel collection under the Automobili Lamborghini brand. The collection consists of backpacks, trolleys, satchels, cross body bags, bags, belts and small leather goods and will be on sale from spring/summer 2020. The line will be distributed internationally, in markets including Russia and the territories of the former Soviet Union, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, via 300 retail clients and 450 points of sale. China, Japan and America outlets will follow. The sales channels include specialist outlets, department stores, duty free shops and the most important airlines. Openings are also planned, including ‘shop in shop’ and ‘boutique corner’ such as the one in the Attica department store in Athens. “For us, offering excellence in terms of design, technology and quality is an essential value. When we extend the brand into different areas, we only choose partners who are as committed as Lamborghini to the same expression of excellence in their sector. In this product line we find the distinctive design features of Lamborghini super sports cars, a quality of the materials and an exceptional attention to detail in the realization of the products," explained Katia Bassi, Chief Marketing & Communication Officer for Automobili Lamborghini. “The partnership with Automobili Lamborghini fulfills Principe's strategy of offering its international customers excellent products with differing styles. The values of the Lamborghini brand combined with our experience and professionalism provide the solid basis from which to distribute this line, which will satisfy even the most demanding consumers,” said Alessandro Maroni, Principe's Business Development Manager. The spring/summer 2020 collection is available in markets as detailed, and on the official Automobili Lamborghini store www.lamborghinistore.com -- END --
  7. 100% agree! It may be lack of sleep, but it's reminiscent of the early Countach profiles, a bit of a wedge on the back half. Either would be great, but seeing it without the wing it feels much more essential without. Granted, you can't go wrong either way.
  8. Let's file this under "Thing I didn't expect to run across". I can't say I would be putting all these in my house, but I'd definitely give the couches a try! Press Release below the photos. -- Press Release -- Sant’Agata Bolognese, Valencia, February 14th 2020 - LUXE Surfaces Atelier, a leading luxury licensing company working with iconic high-end brands in the design surfaces sector, has chosen the Spanish city of Valencia, named Capital of Design 2022, to officially present the first exclusive collection of architectural surfaces by Automobili Lamborghini, from 3 to 7 February, 2020. The innovative materials of the Automobili Lamborghini Surfaces Collection stand out for their refined style and bold character, elegant lines and iconic design, perfectly blended in an innovative, very large mineral stone slab, characterized by unparalleled technical-mechanical properties, unique aesthetic solutions and infinite customization possibilities. The significant result of years of research, design considerations and technological development, the Surfaces Collection Automobili Lamborghini was born thanks to the use of innovative and exclusive patented systems. These technologies are revolutionizing the world of design and architecture, with mineral stone used in surfaces and the latest generation interior and exterior coatings, transforming the material into a work of art. -- END --
  9. Wheels are subjective. Personally, I'm down with the dark color over light. Track driving has it's place, can be a lot of fun, just make sure you budget for it!
  10. I didn't even see the Senna's when I watched it have a dozen times! I'll be honest, your spec is my favorite that I've seen thus far. Let me know when you sell it!
  11. Looks even better in video. My goodness that's beautiful. Nice job specing that one. How much longer did you have to wait for that?
  12. Congratulations! Planning a big first drive for it?
  13. You're right on on all your points, but I think it's perfect for the entry level people who want "a vette" and don't want to pay terribly much for it. Leave the good stuff to the Z06 and ZR1's. Base model is impressive for just that, but this is hardly even getting into the capability of the car I speculate.
  14. Interesting, how would you see them changing things if that was the goal? I'm no disagreeing, I'm genuinely interested, never thought of how it would look if they just took aim at the domestic market. I'd speculate that means going to back to the front engine set up? Horsepower wise, Shelby (760 hp) and Dodge (840 w/ Demon) have that under their belt, and Ford has gone mid-engine with the GT (660 hp). I love some specific Vette's for sure, but I'm not sure I'd see where they could have taken it other than to a mid-engine as a natural evolution. Would love to get my hands on a C5 with a LSX build, or a C6 Z06 with mild mods for a fun weekend car. I'll always have a soft spot for domestic power!

    How would you rate the gearbox and clutch against its competitors? It seems off the top of my head that the Porsche PDK is superior, but I can't remember how Ferrari ranks. Were you considering any other brands?
