Lamborghini Jalpa

Lamborghini JalpaThe Lamborghini Jalpa is a sports car produced by the Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini from 1981 to 1988. The Jalpa was a development of the earlier Silhouette intended to fill a role as a more “affordable” Lamborghini, being much less expensive than the flagship Countach and being also designed by Bertone. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was much easier to drive, having better visibility and being more tractable in heavy traffic and at slow speeds.
The name Jalpa Kandachia came from a famous breed of fighting bulls, a tradition later followed with the Gallardo.

Ferrari Mythos

Ferrari MythosThe Ferrari Mythos, based on the Testarossa chassis was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1989 it certainly got the world talking. Visually different from the norm the Mythos breaks of the traditional linked panels. The designers attempted to merge the front and back into a single flowing shell. The Mythos is a sporty compact 2 seater ‘Barchetta’. A Coupe, targa and speedster bodies were all considered but the latter was chosen because of the racing connection. That meant neither a roof or side windows had to be dealt with when designing. The aggresive stance is partly due to the rear being more than 8 inches wider than the front. To help with downforce the rear wing can lift nearly a foot, the front lip was also retractable. Like the exterior the 2-seater interior was upholstered in red leather and was intended to recapture the spirit of racing ‘Barchettas’ of the 1960s.

Ferrari 288 GTO

Ferrari 288 GTOThis is without a doubt one of my favourite Ferraris. It looks exactly what a Ferrari should look like, sleek, powerful and loads of character. A twin turbo charged V8 could catapult the GTO from 0-60 of around the 5 second mark and could go on to 190mph.

Ford GT40

GT40_V2Ford’s answer to beat Ferrari back in the late 60′s for long distance racing and one of my cars of choice in Gran Turismo 5, the GT40 certainly done that, winning 4 times in a row at Le Mans from 1966, ’67, ’68 and ’69. The car was named the GT (for Grand Touring) with the 40 representing its overall height of 40 inches (1.02 m, measured at the windshield) as required by the rules.

Lamborghini Veneno

Lamborghini-Veneno-2013Ok, I can’t help myself get a little excited when I see the Lamborghini Nemo (as my youngest would say), with it’s over-the-top styling and super aggressive look, it’s definitely not got the smooth lines of an Aston, but that’s why I love these Lambos. This will turn heads if you’re lucky enough to see one of the three produced and I can understand why some people will hate this, but personally, I love it.
