  1. THE GRAND COMPLICATION: THE SURREAL POST APOCALYPSE EVENT KNOWN AS BURNING MAN Did he die? Yes, he did, the officer replied. The officer also advised that it would be another five hours in the already three-hour wait online to enter Burning Man. The line of cars and trucks entering Burning Man was 20 through 30,000 vehicles long. It's a one lane road that goes through Native American tribal lands; and the most unforgiving lifeless portions of the desert. The event is held at Blackrock City and Blackrock City is a dry lake bed with not one single form of life. Not a blade of grass, nothing! The magic of Burning Man is that every year over 80,000 people, for good reason for no reason, take their possessions and their vehicles and a pack for ten days to survive fully self-supportive in the most unforgiving landscape on the earth. How unforgiving is it? During the day it's well over 100° and at night it's under 60°. There is an alkaline sand powder substance that makes the floor of the "playa" which is the area where the event is held. This alkaline dust will get into every pore of your body,then it will burn and then it will cause irritation. It is impossible to keep it out of your camping gear; the trailer; the RV; the car; your clothes; your hair… It's everywhere. By 15 hours in the dust you feel like you been there 10 years. Worse than that, you are not allowed to put one drop of water or refuse anywhere in Black Rock City. Black Rock City, being a vacant landscape, requires that you pick up everything and that you don't even have shower water hit the ground. In the 10 days that you are there, if you require urination or a bowel movement, those things will be done in containers that you will save and bring out of Black Rock City… with you. Once again, the entire landscape is blank, not a toothpick or a blade of grass. By day two of the event there would be giant structures; a full society; almost 100,000 people; buildings and art reaching 60 and 70 feet in the air, the enormity of the art projects and structures is heightened by the blank landscape and the white alkaline powder. Burning Man had started, and everyone does their own individual burn different ways. There are monks that build Sandcastles… It takes them a year to build the Sandcastle grain by grain. These are works of art. Once per year they take the Sandcastle that they built and destroy it completely. This shows the temporary nature of things; how things can change; and these monks state that the purpose of doing this is to call a community to meditation and awareness of something larger than their own small world. The ritual destruction of the Sandcastle is likened to symbolize the ephemerality of life in the world. The Sandcastle itself has the purpose of transforming an ordinary mind into an enlightened one and according to Buddhist scripture the "Mandalas" (Sandcastle) is constructed from sand to transmit positive energies to the environment and the people who view it. The Mandala shows up in cultures of several indigenous tribes in the United States. The most common Mandalas are the ones that are currently being constructed by the Buddhist monks in Tibet; India; Nepal China; Bhutan and Indonesia. The Mandalasdate back to the first century in these societies. It was interesting to know that the American indigenous tribes also use mandalas. I thought of burning man as a mandala. Something that is built up to create positive energy and then it is destroyed with purpose, even if the purpose is to show that things change, and rebirth and renewal can be good. It is with this philosophy that I went to burning man. The cost of traveling to burning man in a Lamborghini SUV with a high maintenance blonde… gut wrenching… Unbelievable! Furthermore, the setting up of a camp with portable showers and water reclaiming basins; 10 days of food; wind and sun-structures; all of it done during sandstorms or in the evening. It was brutal. The alkaline sand and powder is soothing at first. After approximately 15 hours it's irritating. After three days it is more than irritating, it becomes a part of you. I was upset to learn that many people had placed meanings (their own individual meaning) into this event. That happens. For each person the event mean meant something different. I didn't feel the "collectiveness" that I feel in rallies because there was no specific destination at which all participants would cross the finish line. Here it was more about following the rules and contributing in many ways. The rules get more complex than I would like, and a society is formed. Complete society is formed within the 10 days of Burning Man. A society with a hospital; Department of Motor Vehicles; a hierarchy; security; some electric grids; and a semblance of chaos. At the end, I had met so many people who had so many different meanings for the Burning Man that I felt I had nothing in common with a good portion of the people there. Nevertheless, my burn was epic. Entering Burning Man was an eight-hour experience online with over 20 through 30,000 other "burners". Every car, RV and 4 x 4 was packed to the gills with bicycles (the only mode of transportation in Black Rock City) camping gear; ridiculous clothing and accessories; and food and supplies for 10 days. Black Rock City has no electric nor does it have an infrastructure and it has no plumbing. Water cannot be used if it touches the ground. These make for a very "loaded" vehicle when one is entering Black Rock City. Every vehicle looks like the person and it has their possessions strapped to the vehicle. When 20 through 30,000 of these fully packed vehicles are in one line waiting to get into an area, it is more than surreal. The landscape was foreign if not Martian. It was dust with no plants and nothing alive. It was as if I was a refugee and I was seeking sweet salvation in Burning Man. The scene was as large as anything I've ever seen. The only thing larger, would have been a full military takeover. Never been in the military but I assume the movement of 80,000 individuals is just as awesome in war as a visual. Here, there were more vehicles. For every two people there was one vehicle. Therefore, it was much more sizable than 80,000 soldiers walking or marching. It was as if we were conquering the West one RV at a time. It happened. When the moment happens, you will know it. It happened four days into the event. This is the moment that I have felt in many rallies and the moment is one that I cherish. The moment I'm speaking of can be described as this: "there was a time when you are so far from home, in such a foreign land with foreign people and you have been gone so long that you actually don't believe you can ever go back to the person you were. You have gone so far from who you thought you were, that you don't know if it's possible to return." I was under a tent and it was 110°. I was trying to stay still so that I wouldn't suffer from heat exhaustion. I was covered with alkaline powder and it was irritating every cell of my body. I had containers of fecal matter and urine and food that I no longer wanted to eat as it was 110°. I was drinking warm water, sometimes 4 gallons a day. It is that point when I looked around at the sheer size of my camp; the 80,000 people around us; and the foreign landscaped and unforgiving beating sun, that I didn't see how I went from Bryan Salamone in a suit and tie in New York to Bryan at burning man under a silver tent hiding from the sun as if it was a magnifying glass sent to wipe me out. I had felt this feeling in Japan after 48 hours of sleep at high speeds; and I feel that felt this feeling in Arizona. The feeling that you can't escape the heat; the feeling that there is no shade from the sun; the panic that occurs when you are so far from home you don't think you can ever return. It is this feeling that I live for. It is the end of most all of my adventures. Upon feeling that feeling that I know so well, my particular burn ended. Everything else was gravy. What struck me most was that everybody had their own meaningful of what Burning Man meant to them. Some people were condescending to new burners. That is not good. For all the good that a society brings, I saw this at Burning Man. For the bad that society brings, I saw some of that at Burning Man. Burning man starts as a blank slate; and then it transforms into a city with a population of almost 100,000 people where it subsides for 10 days and is completely broken down to a perfect blank slate. In that time, layers upon layers of society is built. It is amazing to see how a place with zero population balloons to 100,000 people and a full formed society in less than five days and then goes back to zero in less than another five days. It is one of the most fascinating sociological experiments I've ever been part of. It was incredible that everyone was individual yet collective. The theme of this year’s Burning man was Metamorphosis. For me, the metamorphosis occurred when I realized the layers of society around me in the normal world. What it really takes to live on earth whether it's the food; utilities; plumbing…. All of it; everything is taken for granted and when you break it all down, we are all animals hiding under something looking for some shade from the sun. This changed me. This changed me in a good way, and I was most pleased to be broken down to the point of absolute zero where it was just me and the elements. It is at that point that I was able to rebuild burn and return home. From something came nothing and then from nothing and something else. Some people put great meaning to the things, some people get upset when others don't place the same meaning or value on something. Here everyone had their own definition of what Burning Man meant to them. For me, it was the single most amazing scene. When you're in the center of the "playa" and you're surrounded by giant towering art objects and 80,000 individuals, there is great energy. The playa is empty,and it is encircled by the camps at Burning Man. In the center of the circle there is nothing and is surrounded by incredible population of interesting and eccentric people. The society forms and you watch it form before your own eyes. Standing in this empty circle you can hear 80,000 people, and you can feel their energy. The desert absolutely comes alive at night with the celebrations of light and fire. It is the closest thing to being on Mars that I could ever imagine. As always, people asked me “would you go again?” That's a complicated answer. I love the bicycling aspect and I feel extremely free on a bicycle. I believe I will go each year. And if I don't, it’s my understanding that the man will burn with or without me. As it should be.
  2. AROUND THE WORLD IN A LAMBORGHINI My goal was to drive my Lamborghini Aventador SV around the world. It was my dream, my Mount Everest and I just did it. Background My 2016 Lamborghini SV is the fourth Aventador that I have purchased new. In May, 2018 it had 30,000 miles on it at the start of my trip. I have driven in snow, andblistering heat, and I have hit 200 mph in my Aventador. I have more miles behind the wheel of an Aventador than any other person. I have completed Bullrun, Cannonball Run Rally, Goldrush, and Gumball. Going around the world was the apex, or summit, that I was setting as my life goal. Indeed, driving a Lamborghini around the world would certainly take an investment of time, all of my energy, and a huge financial undertaking. I was planning a luxury trip around the world, contingent upon an Italian sports car not breaking down, and I would have to travel over oceans with the car and pass through customs as I go from country to country and continent to continent. Preparing the Car Preparing the car to go around the world was no easy task. Complete maintenance was done at Manhattan Motorcars, together with four new tires. A four layer vinyl wrap was placed on top of the car for aesthetics and rally spirit; as well as to protect the car. The windshield and the headlights were covered, the car was coated with a ceramic coat on top of the four layers of vinyl, the rims were coated four times with a ceramic coat, all factory updates were done, and calls were made to the Lamborghini representatives asking for contacts in Europe and Asia. Preparing the Team The trip would be, without any support, in Europe and Asia. In the United States Goldrush Rally would provide us with a luggage truck. We were dividing the journey into two separate trips: 1. Goldrush Rally X, the 10th anniversary rally from Boston to Las Vegas (covering our cross-country USA portion); and 2. Gumball 3000 20th anniversary from London to Tokyo(covering our Europe and Asia portion). Without support in Europe, we would be unable to pack any luggage in the SV. When the roof is taken off the SVand placed in the front boot, there is little to no space left for luggage. I would be attempting to achieve this around the world trip with a co-driver. I chose the love of my life, as my Navigator and Co-driver. The Co-driver must haveexpert navigation skills, texting skills for translations,GPS, messaging and driving skills to relieve me from having to drive around the world by my myself. Divinadoes not drive men in cars so my idea of getting any relief behind the wheel was gone. Furthermore, I was aware that she lacked the navigational skills I was looking for. As always, she promised to make up for it in many other ways and this works for us. Driving around the entire world in a two seat Lamborghini with the person you love will either make or break a relationship. This was also the 10 year anniversary of Team Salamone and of my relationship with Divina. We entered the summer of 2018 as a team focused on one goal: drive around the world together in our Lamborghini. The Summer is over, and we did it. With the right car and the right attitude anything is possible. It was the time of our lives. This was my 50th birthday year, Goldrush Rallies 10 year Anniversary and Gumball 3000’s 20th Anniversary. This trip was my Belini, my quest, my goal. This trip would make or break me; and us as a team. In preparation of the trip, in general, we began to design our clothing. As a team we express ourselves by designing and customizing anything we use. For this trip, we used custom tailors, shoemaker, jewelers, and our dressmaker. We hired a personal assistant and we formed a media team. We placed 25 outfits (complete outfits) into 25 separate boxes to be shipped all over the world to different locations, so that we would not have to bring clothing with us or any luggage. We had an army of volunteers and friends through social media that would be meeting us at each location. Two weeks before the Europeportion of the trip, we were contacted by channel 8 in France with big news. They were going to be following us for a documentary! Just before we started this trip, we had just completed an original program on Netflix called "Fastest Car". Incredibly, in the southern portions of the United States and in France…EVERYONE seems to have seen this show. It increased the enjoyment of my trip when I was spotted at every rest stop and hotel throughout the U.S.and Europe as a result of racing my Lamborghini on thisfun Netflix show that we starred in a few months earlier. * The United States Portion of the Trip Around the World My trip around the world started at my house. First thing in the morning I was met by several friends, my media team,and my personal assistant. We started our journey and in the first 5 miles, we were stopped by police. Was this a sign? Later, we would be stopped by NYPD throughout Europe and even in Japan! In Boston, we were placed on the starting grid of the Goldrush Rally X. Goldrush Rally X was the 10th anniversary of Goldrush and it was known as "The Promised One". It was hard driving with the world's mosteccentric, eclectic, and interesting individuals in some of the greatest supercars ever made. We were positioned on the starting grid next to • *Fastest Car is a Netflix original series, Episode 4 “King of the World” its TeamSalamone and his Lamborghini against four sleeper cars in a drag race. Team Loan Sharks. Team Loan Sharks drove a Mercedes 63 AMG squared, and they had a Lucite box on top of the vehicle with $3 million in cash in it. We were positioned next to this vehicle for our trip across the United States. The trip across the United States was brutal. It included "kissing the bricks" on the track of the Indy 500 and driving the track next to NASCAR legend Kurt Busch in his GT40. This trip across the United States was our 14th trip across the USA. This trip was the most difficult. That Moment in the United States The moment happened in the United States when I was either in Arizona or New Mexico. It seemed as if it was 118°, and it seemed like the gauge in my car was reading 118 Celsius, while the temperature outside was 118 Fahrenheit. I was in the desert and I had been driving for at least five hours. The road started to look wavy in front of me and the noise coming from the engine compartment was deafening. The roof had been off for hours and I was unable to hydrate. I remember feeling the engine heatcome through the wall the firewall into my back and then eventually I was unable to catch my breath and continue breathing. The heat was so unbearable. It felt like it was in the core of my body. When I stopped the car, I was in the middle of nowhere next to a field of black lava in the desert. I had no cell service, I didn't know how I would continue to drive. There was no shade for me to hide under, and I was next to a chrome Lamborghini in 118° heat on a black field of dried lava. I did not know there was such places in the United States, and a field of dried lava in a desert was my version of hell at that moment. Usually when it gets this bad in the middle of a rally, I would stop at a rest stop and wander the aisles of a convenience store looking at the bright colored packaging to focus my mind and my eyes before splashing water on my face and returning to the Lamborghini. Here, I entered a point of dehydration and exhaustion from which I couldn't return. My Co-driver was unable to exit the vehicle when we stopped due to her own fatigue, and she was slipping in and out of consciousness, waking briefly to massage my arms one at a time, coordinate with our film crew,assistant, and other rally participants, each time we entered an area of cell service. At the conclusion of the United States portion of my journey around the world, we had traveled over 3,000 miles, had faced exhaustion and dehydration, but we made it. We had crossed the United States without incident, breakdown, accident, or ticket. We found new friends. We met and faced personal challenges along the way, and our trip was one third completed. Looming large would be Europe and Asia. Europe We arrived in London on August 3, 2018 to start the Gumball 3000 20th anniversary rally. We were fortunate enough to have our car staged in one of the top five positions in an area known as Coventry Gardens. We were able to have the car shipped by plane in less than three days’ time from New York to London, through customs, and straight to the starting grid in Coventry Gardens. We were met with thousands. We were fortunate enough to have volunteers ready to assist us. These volunteers quickly became great friends. This trip started with the NYPD pulling us over within 5 miles of our starting point. We were now in London, and we were pulled over by three NYPD cars! Apparently, a different team had purchased NYPD cars at auction and flew them to London for the start of Gumball 3000. While driving in London I saw the police cars behind me and they put their lights on. My natural reaction wat to pull to the side. It was at that point I realized they were NYPD cars and I was in the United Kingdom. My suspicions that this was a rally prank were confirmed when a shapely blonde Eastern European "officer" appeared at my side view asking me for my license and registration in a thick Russian accent. We were let off with a warning. Driving in London is no small feat with the Lamborghini. I had tested the London roads prior to this date in anticipation of my journey around the world. The roads of London have defined curbs, they are narrow, and they drive on the opposite side of the road, as opposed to the United States. It's actually much easier using a U.S. spec car than the complete disorientation Americans experience when they drive in the United Kingdom with a United Kingdom spec car. In the United Kingdom we went through the Chunnel. We arrived on the other side of the channel and move towards Chantilly. Chantilly, France was a high point in our journey. In France, we were blessed with the celebrity that came with our Netflix program. It appears that Netflix is huge in France, or maybe it's just the Netflix program "Fastest Car". I was spotted everywhere and there were hundreds and hundreds of people coming up to me to discuss the Fastest Car episode. In France, we did not see any Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, very few Mercedes, and no supercars outside of the cars in the rally. London was littered with Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, and supercars. So is New York, Miami. Los Angeles. and many other areas. France, at least where we were traveling, seemed to not have an abundance of luxury cars or sports cars. The roads were lined with people. Each overpass there were 30-40 people waving to us as we went through. We thought this would die out as the miles got longer and the hours got late. It did not. Throughout the entire day, every single overpass was filled with fans waving to us, or the French police pointing laser and radar guns at us. We were stopped in France doing XXX miles an hour (no idea how many kilometers per hour that is) and the officer shook his head, give me my international driving permit back, and stated: "Bon Vivant". He returned to his car and sped away. I took that to mean that he was laughing off the incident as I was just one of those people who "enjoys the good life". This was a very fortunate blessing. The seizure of the car for high-speed driving would've ended my life's goal of driving around the world in my Lamborghini. After Chantilly, we enter Bologna. We arrive in Bologna and we are parked in the exact same spot that we parked our 2012 Aventador in 2013. We were there for the 50th Anniversary Giro. The next morning, it was blistering hot nearly 100 degrees. I remember that in 2013 I purchased gelato in a small store and the Concubine ate it just before the Grand Giro kicked off at that exact spot. I got up early and purchased gelato, same flavor, and the Concubine sat on the rear of the car, placed the gelato on the wing of the SV and began to eat breakfast. That day we were off to the airport. That day would end almost 40 hours after it started. It would end with us driving our car out of the airport in Japan! Lost in Translation: Japan After an extended wait, a grueling plane ride, and no actual sleep, we had arrived in Japan. During the plane ride over, a wedding was performed in the plane, the guests were charged with wearing unicorn horns and participating, and a man named Brock sang Despasito to his bride, and it was so surreal. We were on a plane with Usher, Adrian Brody, David Hasselhoff, and many celebrities. I was wearing unicorn hat, we were following a plane that contained our Lamborghini, and we would be arriving in Japan with no sleep and, once again, driving on the other side of the road. Thirty-five (35) cars did not make it to Japan. The shipping company seems to have lost one third of the rally. We waited for confirmation and, we were in luck. Our car was on plane one (as it should be) and it was in Japan. It was hotter in Japan than anywhere I have ever been. We got out of the airplane into the most grueling humidenvironment that I have ever been in. We ran to our car and jumped in. It had absolutely no gas. It had to be drained of gas for the flight. I left the airport, not knowing that I should be driving on the left side of the road, not knowing how to read any of the street signs (they were all in Japanese), and all of the navigation devices in my car were only reading Japanese characters and nothing would translate to English. The Concubine was of no help at that time, however through the grueling plane ride, and in theevening to come, she was a very valuable asset. In fact, the team does not function without her. Team is two people. Therefore, if, and when, we have fights, it becomes a very small team very quickly. As a divorce lawyer by trade, the irony is not lost on me. It is with great personal experience that I can relate the following: driving around the world in a Lamborghini with your significant other will either make or break your relationship. After 10 years of being with the same woman every day, day in and day out, and spending 24 hours a day in a noisy, hot Italian cars, traveling around the world through time zones,elevations and cultural barriers, there is no one I would want to spend time with other than Divina. For us, the Lamborghini has given us the ability to have adventures and meet people we never thought possible. Before we bought our first Lamborghini, we jumped out of airplanes,drove fighter jets across the desert, swam with great white sharks, conducted big-game safaris, produced films and music and art in our spare time, but nothing incrementally increased our bond together and our enjoyment of life like our first Lamborghini. We are loyal to the end. We have three on order. Japan Upon entering Japan, we were being followed. There are police in unmarked cars. Incredibly, the police in unmarked cars wear helmets. They're easy to spot when the windows are not tinted. We had met the leader of a specific and unique leader car culture the leader of a specific car culture in 2013. His name is synergy more Moshe (John correct spelling). They label themselves "the mightiest family" and then on, the most interesting and expressive Lamborghini owners I've ever met. They have been reported as being "famous" in Japan and "infamous". There are many articles that liken Mr. Moore host to a gangster or otherwise paint him as a person who plays by his own rules. Plus, it would be a great honor to be met by our friend. The day we met soon to know sheets note she more a hoe she was the most difficult driving day of my life. We left the airport in Japan and traveled immediately towards the evening’s hotel. We were immediately stopped at a toll. The tolls don't take American credit cards. We had not changed any money as we traveled in a private plane with our car in a second private plane. There was no real "airport" for us and we jumped in our car and left without having any real preparation other than "get to the hotel". At the first toll I had to run out of my car into cars asking for money, so that I could get through the toll. Incredibly, nobody spoke English. I was able to get enough yen to get through the toll thanks to the beneficence of the Japanese drivers. On the second night in Japan, the hotel did not cater to Westerners, nor did it permit Western clothing and attire. This was the Gumball 3000 owner, Maximilian Cooper's, way of keeping us out of our comfort zone. It worked. We laid on a bamboo mat on the floor, drank tea, and ate sea urchin, and I wore what appeared to be a robe for the entirety of my stay in the hotel, including dinner and evenings activities. Concubine mentioned to me that "other teams seem to have underwear under their kimono". Live and learn. I woke up at 4:00 in the morning in the hotel where I was sleeping on the floor wearing a kimono. I went to the top of the mountain and entered the hot spring. I sat on the log naked and dumped water over myself. It was still dark out. There were dozens of Japanese men doing this to the sunrise. I left the bathhouse and approached my car on the grid. The owner of the chiron greeted me, and then I met a Japanese man who was intent on assisting me in detailing my car for over an hour and a half in the hot morning sun. When we were done, I thanked him in every way I could, understanding the language barrier. He seemed to convey to me that he also was a supercar owner. He may have been an actor. I didn't know who he was, but I was very nice to him and that sort of kindness never goes unnoticed. I went into the hotel to get my car,the Concubine, and to get a jump on today's ride. It was now 5:30 a.m. The man who had helped me clean my car for over an hour and a half was next to our car in his black Ferrari. Apparently, he is a supercar owner and quite important in Japan. He gave me a care package including specialties. low sugar candy, and fruits and nuts, so that I could survive the days grueling journey. He made sure to call people in Japan to meet us at each stop. From this point on we were met with people who came up to us in broken English and tried to describe that their friend, with a black Ferrari who had given us a care package, had told them to meet us and asked us if we were okay. That was amazing. On the way to meet our great friend, Sanoshi Morahoshe,for what is a unscheduled and impromptu stop during ourrally. We got stuck on our way temple in the hottest weather I've ever owned endured. The car was redlining throughout. It was choking on its own fumes. We were going 5 miles an hour for more than 2 1/2 hours in traffic. It was triple digit heat. It was at this time that I was so dehydrated, so sunburned, exhausted, and emotionally beaten down, that I truly believed that I would not ever make it to Tokyo. This was the last day, and all I had to do was meet my great friend, Sanoshi Morahoshe, and I had to cross the finish line into Tokyo. I didn't think it was happening and it was getting dark. It was over a hundred degrees and I was stopped on the side of the road in traffic. I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at the headquarters of the Sanoshi Morahoshe family. When I saw him I saw his bright blonde hair from a far distance. As I approached I noticed a crowd of people. When I stopped the car in front of his headquarters, I realized to myself that I started the journey at my house and had ended at his home in Japan. The journey was over. Mr. Morahoshe is a very well respected man. He is quite important in his country and worldwide. The Japanese have a culture of honor and tradition. As I exited the Lamborghini at the end of the trip I wondered how I would greet my friend. Would be a bow or a handshake? I exited the Lamborghini and my emotions got the better of me. I was overcome with a overwhelming feeling of magnificent achievement and gratitude. I lunged towards Sanoshi Morahoshe and fast gave him a bear hug. He erupted with laughter as well did his entire family. There were 14 Lamborghinis waiting for me and the entire Morahoshe family was out in full effect. His car was modified and customized as only this Japanese car club family seems to do: Swarovski crystals, gold chrome, and lights. Lights everywhere. Like many Lamborghini owners, Mr.Morahoshe expresses himself and enjoys a rugged individuality like no one else, save for myself. Both him and I have a common bond not just through the cars, but through our understanding of what it means to be an individual, and to be on our own path. I had flown in Steve Feldman from Steve POV. He is the premier contact between this crew of Lamborghini owners and the rest of the world. Mr. Feldman is a prolific car enthusiast with great knowledge (superior to none) of the Japanese car culture and language. He is the translator and he is a YouTube star. His videos of this evening are legendary. Also, there to document this was Shmee 150. His videos of this meeting are more than entertaining, their energetic, positive, and informative. He is very good at what he does. I met Mr. Morahoshe and the entire family. I received balloons, gifts, hugs, and kisses. They asked me if I wanted to go for a short ride. I had just driven the most difficult day of my life. I had been in heat that reminded me of lava beds in Arizona. I had come to a place of exhaustion and mental fatigue that I felt I could not return. Now, the most important supercar family in all of Japan is asking me if I want to ride with them through a country filled with narrow streets, police, and driving on the other side of the road, and after traveling around the entire world and getting up at four on several mornings, after sleeping on the floor, and on my way to the actual finish line…do I want to drive with the more Morahoshe family? Absolutely. We left Morahoshe headquarters and I was shocked beyond belief. I have driven 200 miles an hour against jet planes, helicopters, Bugattis, other supercars, in major rallies, on television, and throughout the world, but this was different. I have never seen any car club move like this. It was an absolute ballet. The Lamborghinis interweave one into another able to communicate with each other with simple gestures and through navigators. They went into the tunnels under Japan at breakneck speeds passing columns underground and poles switching back and forth in front, beside, and in back of me in a dizzying, synchronized driving lesson where I was feeling like a victim more than a participant. I have driven with NASCAR drivers and with professional Lamborghini drivers in Giro. I have driven against some of the best public roads against some of the best drivers. Nothing could prepare me for the Morahoshe family. Their cars are far more flamboyant and personal than anything I ever saw, and their skill behind the wheel far exceeded anything I have ever seen in the United States or Europe. They were able to showboat and perform maneuvers that I still, to this day, do not know how they do. I don't know how they were able to get the entire city on lockdown with some sort of grid system, whereby the police at one point were telling us where to go; and at another point, my GPS translator stated, "we run from police now…Okay?". This was the wildest ride I have had with the nicest and most colorful people. We ended up at the hotel just before midnight. I had just done the most exciting drive of my life through Tokyo and through the tunnels of Tokyo at kill shot speeds, in what seemed to be synchronized swimming with Lamborghinis. At some point, I was less than 4 feet behind Morahoshe. He always made sure I was second online and would bully or otherwise coordinate it so that I was second and he was first. He then did whatever it took to shake me, and we played games throughout the city. At all times this required 110% of my concentration and profound focus. I obtained a second when I didn't know I had. After going around the world, sleeping on the floor,being losing 20 pounds, and being dehydrated during this trip alone…I was now fearing for my life in the tunnels of Japan battling fatigue and following a great friend. Upon arriving at the hotel my team was joined. There was Joshua King, my assistant, John Lewis, and Syd Mondo from UhDope. We had been followed for 3 1/2 weeks by Channel 8, French television. We had French cameramen with us 24/7 and we traveled in an entourage. We had completed our journey around the world in a Lamborghini. There is no way to describe what it feels like when you achieve your life’s goal, or at least, I can't find a way. It all seems like a blur, and in retrospect, it was far greater and more exciting than anything I had imagined. Driving around the world in a Lamborghini was my goal. This was, a pie-in-the-sky goal. As the Italians call it, Bellini, the wish of wishes which can be hung on a crescent moon. We arrived in New York after traveling the entire world in a Lamborghini. It was a realization of all the dreams and goals I've set for myself. As a couple we pulled through far closer and more in love than ever. As for the car, there is no other vehicle for me. I have not traveled around the world in a Lamborghini, and I have received the Lamborghini Uris, and I have a Lamborghini SV-J on order. I have two specific goals for the next rally season that are so amazing and epic I have not shared them. What could possibly be more epic and amazing than going around the world in a Lamborghini? Time will tell, but I assure you…it will involve me driving a Lamborghini and it will be awesome. Divina will be with me, and the team will go on, stronger than ever. I don't know if we are the only people who have traveled the entire world in their Lamborghini, I don't know if I have more miles under my belt than any other Aventador owner, and I don't know if there are other Lamborghini owners who have personally traveled more than 150,000 miles in Aventadors. I don't care. My fifth Aventador is on order and there will be a sixth after that. I cannot believe that we have achieved the goals we set and we are in the process of setting more.
  3. AROUND THE WORLD IN A LAMBORGHINI My goal was to drive my Lamborghini Aventador SVaround the world. It was my dream, my Mount Everest and I just did it. Background My 2016 Lamborghini SV is the fourth Aventador that I have purchased new. In May, 2018 it had 30,000 miles on it at the start of my trip. I have driven in snow, andblistering heat, and I have hit 200 mph in my Aventador. I have more miles behind the wheel of an Aventador than any other person. I have completed Bullrun, Cannonball Run Rally, Goldrush, and Gumball. Going around the world was the apex, or summit, that I was setting as my life goal. Indeed, driving a Lamborghini around the world would certainly take an investment of time, all of my energy, and a huge financial undertaking. I was planning a luxury trip around the world, contingent upon an Italian sports car not breaking down, and I would have to travel over oceans with the car and pass through customs as I go from country to country and continent to continent. Preparing the Car Preparing the car to go around the world was no easy task. Complete maintenance was done at Manhattan Motorcars, together with four new tires. A four layer vinyl wrap was placed on top of the car for aesthetics and rally spirit; as well as to protect the car. The windshield and the headlights were covered, the car was coated with a ceramic coat on top of the four layers of vinyl, the rims were coated four times with a ceramic coat, all factory updates were done, and calls were made to the Lamborghini representatives asking for contacts in Europe and Asia. Preparing the Team The trip would be, without any support, in Europe and Asia. In the United States Goldrush Rally would provide us with a luggage truck. We were dividing the journey into two separate trips: 1. Goldrush Rally X, the 10th anniversary rally from Boston to Las Vegas (covering our cross-country USA portion); and 2. Gumball 3000 20th anniversary from London to Tokyo(covering our Europe and Asia portion). Without support in Europe, we would be unable to pack any luggage in the SV. When the roof is taken off the SVand placed in the front boot, there is little to no space left for luggage. I would be attempting to achieve this around the world trip with a co-driver. I chose the love of my life, as my Navigator and Co-driver. The Co-driver must haveexpert navigation skills, texting skills for translations,GPS, messaging and driving skills to relieve me from having to drive around the world by my myself. Divinadoes not drive men in cars so my idea of getting any relief behind the wheel was gone. Furthermore, I was aware that she lacked the navigational skills I was looking for. As always, she promised to make up for it in many other ways and this works for us. Driving around the entire world in a two seat Lamborghini with the person you love will either make or break a relationship. This was also the 10 year anniversary of Team Salamone and of my relationship with Divina. We entered the summer of 2018 as a team focused on one goal: drive around the world together in our Lamborghini. The Summer is over, and we did it. With the right car and the right attitude anything is possible. It was the time of our lives. This was my 50th birthday year, Goldrush Rallies 10 year Anniversary and Gumball 3000’s 20th Anniversary. This trip was my Belini, my quest, my goal. This trip would make or break me; and us as a team. In preparation of the trip, in general, we began to design our clothing. As a team we express ourselves by designing and customizing anything we use. For this trip, we used custom tailors, shoemaker, jewelers, and our dressmaker. We hired a personal assistant and we formed a media team. We placed 25 outfits (complete outfits) into 25 separate boxes to be shipped all over the world to different locations, so that we would not have to bring clothing with us or any luggage. We had an army of volunteers and friends through social media that would be meeting us at each location. Two weeks before the Europeportion of the trip, we were contacted by channel 8 in France with big news. They were going to be following us for a documentary! Just before we started this trip, we had just completed an original program on Netflix called "Fastest Car". Incredibly, in the southern portions of the United States and in France…EVERYONE seems to have seen this show. It increased the enjoyment of my trip when I was spotted at every rest stop and hotel throughout the U.S.and Europe as a result of racing my Lamborghini on thisfun Netflix show that we starred in a few months earlier. * The United States Portion of the Trip Around the World My trip around the world started at my house. First thing in the morning I was met by several friends, my media team,and my personal assistant. We started our journey and in the first 5 miles, we were stopped by police. Was this a sign? Later, we would be stopped by NYPD throughout Europe and even in Japan! In Boston, we were placed on the starting grid of the Goldrush Rally X. Goldrush Rally X was the 10th anniversary of Goldrush and it was known as "The Promised One". It was hard driving with the world's mosteccentric, eclectic, and interesting individuals in some of the greatest supercars ever made. We were positioned on the starting grid next to • *Fastest Car is a Netflix original series, Episode 4 “King of the World” its TeamSalamone and his Lamborghini against four sleeper cars in a drag race. Team Loan Sharks. Team Loan Sharks drove a Mercedes 63 AMG squared, and they had a Lucite box on top of the vehicle with $3 million in cash in it. We were positioned next to this vehicle for our trip across the United States. The trip across the United States was brutal. It included "kissing the bricks" on the track of the Indy 500 and driving the track next to NASCAR legend Kurt Busch in his GT40. This trip across the United States was our 14th trip across the USA. This trip was the most difficult. That Moment in the United States The moment happened in the United States when I was either in Arizona or New Mexico. It seemed as if it was 118°, and it seemed like the gauge in my car was reading 118 Celsius, while the temperature outside was 118 Fahrenheit. I was in the desert and I had been driving for at least five hours. The road started to look wavy in front of me and the noise coming from the engine compartment was deafening. The roof had been off for hours and I was unable to hydrate. I remember feeling the engine heatcome through the wall the firewall into my back and then eventually I was unable to catch my breath and continue breathing. The heat was so unbearable. It felt like it was in the core of my body. When I stopped the car, I was in the middle of nowhere next to a field of black lava in the desert. I had no cell service, I didn't know how I would continue to drive. There was no shade for me to hide under, and I was next to a chrome Lamborghini in 118° heat on a black field of dried lava. I did not know there was such places in the United States, and a field of dried lava in a desert was my version of hell at that moment. Usually when it gets this bad in the middle of a rally, I would stop at a rest stop and wander the aisles of a convenience store looking at the bright colored packaging to focus my mind and my eyes before splashing water on my face and returning to the Lamborghini. Here, I entered a point of dehydration and exhaustion from which I couldn't return. My Co-driver was unable to exit the vehicle when we stopped due to her own fatigue, and she was slipping in and out of consciousness, waking briefly to massage my arms one at a time, coordinate with our film crew,assistant, and other rally participants, each time we entered an area of cell service. At the conclusion of the United States portion of my journey around the world, we had traveled over 3,000 miles, had faced exhaustion and dehydration, but we made it. We had crossed the United States without incident, breakdown, accident, or ticket. We found new friends. We met and faced personal challenges along the way, and our trip was one third completed. Looming large would be Europe and Asia. Europe We arrived in London on August 3, 2018 to start the Gumball 3000 20th anniversary rally. We were fortunate enough to have our car staged in one of the top five positions in an area known as Coventry Gardens. We were able to have the car shipped by plane in less than three days’ time from New York to London, through customs, and straight to the starting grid in Coventry Gardens. We were met with thousands. We were fortunate enough to have volunteers ready to assist us. These volunteers quickly became great friends. This trip started with the NYPD pulling us over within 5 miles of our starting point. We were now in London, and we were pulled over by three NYPD cars! Apparently, a different team had purchased NYPD cars at auction and flew them to London for the start of Gumball 3000. While driving in London I saw the police cars behind me and they put their lights on. My natural reaction wat to pull to the side. It was at that point I realized they were NYPD cars and I was in the United Kingdom. My suspicions that this was a rally prank were confirmed when a shapely blonde Eastern European "officer" appeared at my side view asking me for my license and registration in a thickRussian accent. We were let off with a warning. Driving in London is no small feat with the Lamborghini. I had tested the London roads prior to this date in anticipation of my journey around the world. The roads of London have defined curbs, they are narrow, and they drive on the opposite side of the road, as opposed to the United States. It's actually much easier using a U.S. spec car than the complete disorientation Americans experience when theydrive in the United Kingdom with a United Kingdom spec car. In the United Kingdom we went through the Chunnel. We arrived on the other side of the channel and move towards Chantilly. Chantilly, France was a high point in our journey. In France, we were blessed with the celebrity that came with our Netflix program. It appears that Netflix is huge in France, or maybe it's just the Netflix program "Fastest Car". I was spotted everywhere and there were hundreds and hundreds of people coming up to me to discuss the Fastest Car episode. In France, we did not see any Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, very few Mercedes, and no supercars outside of the cars in the rally. London was littered with Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, and supercars. So is New York, Miami. Los Angeles. and many other areas. France, at least where we were traveling, seemed to not have an abundance of luxury cars or sports cars. The roads were lined with people. Each overpass there were 30-40 people waving to us as we went through. We thought this would die out as the miles got longer and the hours got late. It did not. Throughout the entire day, every single overpass was filled with fans waving to us, or the French police pointing laser and radar guns at us. We were stopped in France doing XXX miles an hour (no idea how many kilometers per hour that is) and the officer shook his head, give me my international driving permit back, and stated: "Bon Vivant". He returned to his car and sped away. I took that to mean that he was laughing off the incident as I was just one of those people who "enjoys the good life". This was a very fortunate blessing. The seizure of the car for high-speed driving would've ended my life's goal of driving around the world in my Lamborghini. After Chantilly, we enter Bologna. We arrive in Bologna and we are parked in the exact same spot that we parked our 2012 Aventador in 2013. We were there for the 50th Anniversary Giro. The next morning, it was blistering hot nearly 100 degrees. I remember that in 2013 I purchased gelato in a small store and the Concubine ate it just before the Grand Giro kicked off at that exact spot. I got up early and purchased gelato, same flavor, and the Concubine sat on the rear of the car, placed the gelato on the wing of the SV and began to eat breakfast. That day we were off to the airport. That day would end almost 40 hours after it started. It would end with us driving our car out of the airport in Japan! Lost in Translation: Japan After an extended wait, a grueling plane ride, and no actual sleep, we had arrived in Japan. During the plane ride over, a wedding was performed in the plane, the guests were charged with wearing unicorn horns and participating, and a man named Brock sang Despasito to his bride, and it was so surreal. We were on a plane with Usher, Adrian Brody, David Hasselhoff, and many celebrities. I was wearing unicorn hat, we were following a plane that contained our Lamborghini, and we would be arriving in Japan with no sleep and, once again, driving on the other side of the road. Thirty-five (35) cars did not make it to Japan. The shipping company seems to have lost one third of the rally. We waited for confirmation and, we were in luck. Our car was on plane one (as it should be) and it was in Japan. It was hotter in Japan than anywhere I have ever been. We got out of the airplane into the most grueling humidenvironment that I have ever been in. We ran to our car and jumped in. It had absolutely no gas. It had to be drained of gas for the flight. I left the airport, not knowing that I should be driving on the left side of the road, not knowing how to read any of the street signs (they were all in Japanese), and all of the navigation devices in my car were only reading Japanese characters and nothing would translate to English. The Concubine was of no help at that time, however through the grueling plane ride, and in theevening to come, she was a very valuable asset. In fact, the team does not function without her. Team is two people. Therefore, if, and when, we have fights, it becomes a very small team very quickly. As a divorce lawyer by trade, the irony is not lost on me. It is with great personal experience that I can relate the following: driving around the world in a Lamborghini with your significant other will either make or break your relationship. After 10 years of being with the same woman every day, day in and day out, and spending 24 hours a day in a noisy, hot Italian cars, traveling around the world through time zones,elevations and cultural barriers, there is no one I would want to spend time with other than Divina. For us, the Lamborghini has given us the ability to have adventures and meet people we never thought possible. Before we bought our first Lamborghini, we jumped out of airplanes,drove fighter jets across the desert, swam with great white sharks, conducted big-game safaris, produced films and music and art in our spare time, but nothing incrementally increased our bond together and our enjoyment of life like our first Lamborghini. We are loyal to the end. We have three on order. Japan Upon entering Japan, we were being followed. There are police in unmarked cars. Incredibly, the police in unmarked cars wear helmets. They're easy to spot when the windows are not tinted. We had met the leader of a specific and unique leader car culture the leader of a specific car culture in 2013. His name is synergy more Moshe (John correct spelling). They label themselves "the mightiest family" and then on, the most interesting and expressive Lamborghini owners I've ever met. They have been reported as being "famous" in Japan and "infamous". There are many articles that liken Mr. Moore host to a gangster or otherwise paint him as a person who plays by his own rules. Plus, it would be a great honor to be met by our friend. The day we met soon to know sheets note she more a hoe she was the most difficult driving day of my life. We left the airport in Japan and traveled immediately towards the evening’s hotel. We were immediately stopped at a toll. The tolls don't take American credit cards. We had not changed any money as we traveled in a private plane with our car in a second private plane. There was no real "airport" for us and we jumped in our car and left without having any real preparation other than "get to the hotel". At the first toll I had to run out of my car into cars asking for money, so that I could get through the toll. Incredibly, nobody spoke English. I was able to get enough yen to get through the toll thanks to the beneficence of the Japanese drivers. On the second night in Japan, the hotel did not cater to Westerners, nor did it permit Western clothing and attire. This was the Gumball 3000 owner, Maximilian Cooper's, way of keeping us out of our comfort zone. It worked. We laid on a bamboo mat on the floor, drank tea, and ate sea urchin, and I wore what appeared to be a robe for theentirety of my stay in the hotel, including dinner and evenings activities. Concubine mentioned to me that "other teams seem to have underwear under theirkimono". Live and learn. I woke up at 4:00 in the morning in the hotel where I was sleeping on the floor wearing a kimono. I went to the top of the mountain and entered the hot spring. I sat on the log naked and dumped water over myself. It was still dark out. There were dozens of Japanese men doing this to the sunrise. I left the bathhouse and approached my car on the grid. The owner of the chiron greeted me, and then I met a Japanese man who was intent on assisting me in detailing my car for over an hour and a half in the hot morning sun. When we were done, I thanked him in every way I could, understanding the language barrier. He seemed to convey to me that he also was a supercar owner. He may have been an actor. I didn't know who he was, but I was very nice to him and that sort of kindness never goes unnoticed. I went into the hotel to get my car,the Concubine, and to get a jump on today's ride. It was now 5:30 a.m. The man who had helped me clean my car for over an hour and a half was next to our car in his black Ferrari. Apparently, he is a supercar owner and quite important in Japan. He gave me a care package including specialties. low sugar candy, and fruits and nuts, so that I could survive the days grueling journey. He made sure to call people in Japan to meet us at each stop. From this point on we were met with people who came up to us in broken English and tried to describe that their friend, with a black Ferrari who had given us a care package, had told them to meet us and asked us if we were okay. That was amazing. On the way to meet our great friend, Sanoshi Morahoshe,for what is a unscheduled and impromptu stop during ourrally. We got stuck on our way temple in the hottest weather I've ever owned endured. The car was redlining throughout. It was choking on its own fumes. We were going 5 miles an hour for more than 2 1/2 hours in traffic. It was triple digit heat. It was at this time that I was so dehydrated, so sunburned, exhausted, and emotionally beaten down, that I truly believed that I would not ever make it to Tokyo. This was the last day, and all I had to do was meet my great friend, Sanoshi Morahoshe, and I had to cross the finish line into Tokyo. I didn't think it was happening and it was getting dark. It was over a hundred degrees and I was stopped on the side of the road intraffic. I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at the headquarters of the Sanoshi Morahoshe family. When I saw him I saw his bright blonde hair from a far distance. As I approached I noticed a crowd of people. When I stopped the car in front of his headquarters, I realized to myself that I started the journey at my house and had ended at his home in Japan. The journey was over. Mr. Morahoshe is a very well respected man. He is quite important in his country and worldwide. The Japanese have a culture of honor and tradition. As I exited the Lamborghini at the end of the trip I wondered how I would greet my friend. Would be a bow or a handshake? I exited the Lamborghini and my emotions got the better of me. I was overcome with a overwhelming feeling of magnificent achievement and gratitude. I lunged towards SanoshiMorahoshe and fast gave him a bear hug. He erupted with laughter as well did his entire family. There were 14 Lamborghinis waiting for me and the entire Morahoshefamily was out in full effect. His car was modified and customized as only this Japanese car club family seems to do: Swarovski crystals, gold chrome, and lights. Lights everywhere. Like many Lamborghini owners, Mr.Morahoshe expresses himself and enjoys a rugged individuality like no one else, save for myself. Both him and I have a common bond not just through the cars, but through our understanding of what it means to be an individual, and to be on our own path. I had flown in Steve Feldman from Steve POV. He is the premier contact between this crew of Lamborghini owners and the rest of the world. Mr. Feldman is a prolific car enthusiast with great knowledge (superior to none) of the Japanese car culture and language. He is the translator and he is a YouTube star. His videos of this evening are legendary. Also, there to document this was Shmee 150. His videos of this meeting are more than entertaining, their energetic, positive, and informative. He is very good at what he does. I met Mr. Morahoshe and the entire family. I receivedballoons, gifts, hugs, and kisses. They asked me if I wanted to go for a short ride. I had just driven the most difficult day of my life. I had been in heat that reminded me of lava beds in Arizona. I had come to a place of exhaustion and mental fatigue that I felt I could not return. Now, the most important supercar family in all of Japan is asking me if I want to ride with them through a country filled with narrow streets, police, and driving on the other side of the road, and after traveling around the entire world and getting up at four on several mornings, after sleeping on the floor, and on my way to the actual finish line…do I want to drive with the more Morahoshe family? Absolutely. We left Morahoshe headquarters and I was shocked beyond belief. I have driven 200 miles an hour against jet planes, helicopters, Bugattis, other supercars, in major rallies, on television, and throughout the world, but this was different. I have never seen any car club move like this. It was an absolute ballet. The Lamborghinis interweave one into another able to communicate with each other with simple gestures and through navigators. They went into the tunnels under Japan at breakneck speeds passing columns underground and poles switching back and forth in front, beside, and in back of me in a dizzying, synchronized driving lesson where I was feeling like a victim more than a participant. I have driven with NASCAR drivers and with professional Lamborghini drivers in Giro. I have driven against some of the best public roads against some of the best drivers. Nothing could prepare me for the Morahoshe family. Their cars are far more flamboyant and personal than anything I ever saw, and their skill behind the wheel far exceeded anything I have ever seen in the United States or Europe. They were able to showboat and perform maneuvers that I still, to this day, do not know how they do. I don't know how they were able to get the entire city on lockdown with some sort of grid system, whereby the police at one point were telling us where to go; and at another point, my GPS translator stated, "we run from police now…Okay?". This was the wildest ride I have had with the nicest and most colorful people. We ended up at the hotel just before midnight. I had just done the most exciting drive of my life through Tokyo and through the tunnels of Tokyo at kill shot speeds, in what seemed to be synchronized swimming with Lamborghinis. At some point, I was less than 4 feet behind Morahoshe. He always made sure I was second online and would bully or otherwise coordinate it so that I was second and he was first. He then did whatever it took to shake me, and we played games throughout the city. At all times this required 110% of my concentration and profound focus. I obtained a second when I didn't know I had. After going around the world, sleeping on the floor,being losing 20 pounds, and being dehydrated during this trip alone…I was now fearing for my life in the tunnels of Japan battling fatigue and following a great friend. Upon arriving at the hotel my team was joined. There was Joshua King, my assistant, John Lewis, and Syd Mondo from UhDope. We had been followed for 3 1/2 weeks by Channel 8, French television. We had French cameramen with us 24/7 and we traveled in an entourage. We had completed our journey around the world in a Lamborghini. There is no way to describe what it feels like when you achieve your life’s goal, or at least, I can't find a way. It all seems like a blur, and in retrospect, it was far greater and more exciting than anything I had imagined. Driving around the world in a Lamborghini was my goal. This was, a pie-in-the-sky goal.

It was a realization of all the dreams and goals I've set for myself. As a couple we pulled through far closer and more in love than ever. As for the car, there is no other vehicle for me. I have not traveled around the world in a Lamborghini, and I have received the Lamborghini Uris, and I have a Lamborghini SV-J on order. I have two specific goals for the next rally season that are so amazing and epic I have not sharedthem. What could possibly be more epic and amazing than going around the world in a Lamborghini? Time will tell, but I assure you…it will involve me driving a Lamborghini and it will be awesome. Divina will be with me, and the team will go on, stronger than ever. I don't know if we are the only people who have traveled the entire world in their Lamborghini, I don't know if I have more miles under my belt than any other Aventador owner, and I don't know if there are other Lamborghini owners who have personally traveled more than 150,000 miles in Aventadors. I don't care. My fifth Aventador is on order and there will be a sixth after that. I cannot believe that we have achieved the goals we set and we are in the process of setting more.

  5. Rather than a link I’ll cut and paste text. It was ... almost in
  6. I had to remove the rear seats from it in order to pack it to the gills. I then put a roof rack and bicycle rack. I drove it hundreds of miles in the desert heat then lived out if it. Funny thing, one of the organizers asked me to cover the word LAMBORGHINI on the truck. They said it was in the principle of decomodation and labels and brands are bad. It was quite a conic moment. Right next to my Lamborghini with their name LAMBORGHINI on it, there was a Winnebago. It said “Winnebago” 20 feet across the side of the RV ... and next to that was a U-Haul that said y’all “rent me” with a number. I looked up and I calmly said: is it that you hate labels or you just hate the word LAMBORGHINI. she just left. Every other single person in the entire event was more than amazing! The event was grueling for many reasons and I wrote an article on it but I won’t put it here, this is about the Urus. this car did very well at that event. Next year I need my Lambo to tow my other Lambo to this event . Urus Burns through a quart of oil in about 1500 miles at high revving and high temperatures. Storage space is far less than you would ever imagine, but the performance was amazingStorage space is far less than you would ever imagine, but the performance was amazing
  7. when the doors open in my Urus... there needs to be smoke and angels singing you know like …. like I have in MY SVJ! I love that option. the Facial freeze even though the post has my name... it didn't have to. the smnoke effect in my Urus is exactly what i want and that means .. 423A6391.MOV
  8. People don’t ask what color it is. It just is all colors all the time. Some people say “overstimulation is bad” I say ... there has only been 1 thing on my bucket list since birth, to be “overstimulated” ever second I have on this earth with my senses” the car dances rainbows and shoots laughing gass (nitrous) it’s a fuking ball it’s like the coolest thing .... ever. 3DA11827-D9AF-45B9-B3BF-4F9252E44DF0.MOV
  9. Tomorrow I uncover the starship and I will not disappoint ... Here it is and I love it. I’ve never felt this way about any car. If I had time (and I’ll do it) I would love to tell stories how this thing is getting insane absurd amounts of Attention in such amazing ways... The other day I was going very slow in the center of a four-lane Expressway wondering where the cars were. All four lanes were 50 feet behind me backed up for as far as the eye can see because everybody was filming me from behind and nobody would pass me they were all just filming . An entire expressway start when I slow to 50 miles an hour to verify that the entire expressway would stop with me .
  10. It is so much tighter. The steering, unbelievable difference in the steering in the handling of this car. It’s almost… Too perfect . It is too quiet. You will never hear the car in Strada. The exhaust in corsa is amazing only at 4000 RPM . There is a large difference from sport and, the sound at 4000 RPM is amazing. I drive across continents and countries but if I was very interested in track driving this is night and day over my SV. It’s the steering. I don’t know what they did, or how they did it, the entire car feels ... better. Handles perfect! If you’re a performance nut and you like to hit turns, you must see the difference between this car and the SV. 6 Aventador’s later ... this is the finest car on planet earth to me and ... Along the way from the coupe in November 2011 till now, the Aventodor has jumped leaps and bounds from its original incarnation. Some of the models were not a LEAP or a bound, From the previous model, but all considered, this car is hugely above ... even the SV! I can’t believe the handling! I can’t believe this but here goes: “I have never driven any car that handles as well as my current 12 cylinder Lambo” This a new statement. This car is good. This one... this is very very noticeable. I actually had to locate Lambo power on my cell phone and tell you guys this. This car is different. Drive one
  11. Thank you all and it drives much different than the Sv ..
