LAPD Adds Lamborghini Gallardo To Its Fleet

LAPD Adds Lamborghini Gallardo To Its Fleet

Following in the footsteps of the Dubai Police force, Los Angeles is stepping up its game with the addition of a Lamborghini Gallardo to its fleet. Not only that, but the car also has its own Instagram account!

This vehicle and its usage are a donation from Travis and Nathalie Marg, the owners of Light Source 1, which is a fiber optics company. The Gallardo will see use as a charity vehicle alongside the LAPD Air Support Team. Not a bad choice of wheels, since it’s one of a few vehicles that can keep up with the choppers circling in the sky.

Looking rather evil with its police livery, the Gallardo serves as a rather excellent piece of charity show eye candy. No, it won’t be prowling the streets looking to put a quick end to high speed pursuits.

Instead, the vehicle will be used to put smiles on a few faces, and not much more. It’s a donation, so folks getting angry over a perceived big ticket item on the local budget should guess again. We imagine the LAPD is only spilling out a few bucks for gas with regards to this ride. It’s not Dubai, after all.

How Ford Got The 2015 Mustang On Top Of The Empire State Building (VIDEO)

 How do you get a 2015 Ford Mustang to the top of the Empire State Building? For its ongoing celebration of the Mustang’s 50th birthday, Ford Motor Company decided to recreate a classic 1964 publicity stunt and hoist a shiny new pony car to the building’s 86th-floor observation deck. That took some creative thinking, and some creative destruction.

Ford worked with Romulus, Michigan-based DST Industries–the same company it collaborated with on that original 1965 attempt–on the project. The team determined that the lift would be too high for a portable crane, and that the Empire State’s spire would make a helicopter delivery impossible. That’s why Ford and DST decided to employ the same method used to get that original Mustang to the top of the building: chop it up.

The team measured elevators and doors in the building, then used a scale-model Mustang to plan cut lines. Two leftover prototypes were used, one acting as a donor so technicians could determine where to make the cuts. Carts were then custom built for the body sections, then loaded up and placed in a mockup of the smallest of the three elevators the car bits would have to ride in. The sections were then weighed, and crews practiced assembling them, pit crew style.

Speed was needed, as the Empire State Building’s observation deck is only closed for six hours a day, from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. After crews finish assembling it, the Triple Yellow Mustang was on display April 16-17, coinciding with the 2014 New York Auto Show.

Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Black Bess Is the NEW “Legend”

Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Black Bess Is the NEW “Legend”

The penultimate edition in a series of six special edition Bugatti Veyrons has been revealed. The series is designed to honour the most important people and cars that have shaped Bugatti’s history.

Part of the Les Légendes de Bugatti (Bugatti Legends) series, this fifth car is reminiscent of the famed Bugatti Type 18 affectionately known as Black Bess, which at one point was the fastest road car in the world.

The Type 18, built between 1912 and 1914, was one of the most important Bugattis of the pre-war era.

It was powered by a 5.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivered close to 100 horsepower, which was enough to see it reach a top speed of 100 mph–a speed previously reached only on race tracks.

This makes the Type 18 a legitimate forerunner for the Veyron, and is thus regarded as a Bugatti Legend.

Three Bugatti Legend Black Bess Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse supercars will be built, each priced at 2.15 million euros. Considering all of the previous Bugatti Legends have been sold, we suspect this one won’t last long.

Jaguar – It’s Good To Be Bad Campaign

Jaguar - It's Good To Be Bad Campaign

Have you ever wondered why in Hollywood movies, all the villains are played by Brits? Jaguar’s ‘It’s Good To Be Bad’ campaign features a charismatic line-up of characters with the intelligence and sheer determination to turn the world upside-down. The concept is that these eminently admirable qualities are also present across the Jaguar R Performance range, and exemplified by the F-TYPE R Coupé.

Being a British villain takes a certain style, attention to detail, and above all, practice. For a bit of fun, Jaguar’s website offers what it calls the perfect opportunity to hone your nefarious skills. The lockmaster challenge encourages you to use your skill and dexterity, to crack a combination lock and get away on an F-TYPE R Coupé ‘fearless’ driving day. Are you bad enough? Find out at http://www.jaguar.co.uk/good-to-be-bad/the-masterclass.html.

The villains campaign is designed to launch the F-TYPE R Coupé and to position the brand as stylish and disruptive of the status quo. It is a critical part of Jaguar’s effort to boost buyer awareness and consideration ahead of other key product launches, such as the XE small sedan coming in 2016.

Jaguar’s heritage is both an asset and a liability. Its racing bloodlines run deep, but the brand is still plagued by a reputation for unreliability, a notion so ingrained in the popular consciousness that it turned up on AMC’s hit TV show “Mad Men,” about a fictional 1960s ad agency that briefly holds the Jaguar account. Jaguar’s quality has improved but the negative perceptions still exist to some extent.

Do you think the villains campaign is going to get a positive result for Jaguar?

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Drops Its Top

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Drops Its Top

General Motors has pulled the wraps off its 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible, just in time for some spring-weekend dreaming about top-down driving. Top-down driving with 625 horsepower, that is.

The all-new Z06 drop top features the same powertrain as the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe, with a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V-8 engine that will be able to meter out “at least 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque.”

It will be offered up with a seven-speed manual gearbox, but it will also be available with the new eight-speed automatic transmission, which, Chevy has said, shifts faster than Porsche’s PDK gearbox.

The C7 Corvette was conceived, designed, and engineered as an open-top car, and the Z06, even with the greater forces, vibration, and torque that its body might be subjected to.

Regardless of what purists might think of such a ragtop, it’s certain that this newest Z06 will offer an amazing driving experience top up or down.

Ferrari’s 458 Replacement To Be Turbocharged

Ferrari’s 458 Replacement To Be Turbocharged

Ferrari has started work on the replacement for the 458 Italia, which is expected to adopt a twin-turbocharged engine, possibly with a V-6 configuration.

The hardcore Speciale unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show is thought to be the final version of the 458 and possibly the last of the automaker’s cars to be powered by a naturally aspirated V-8.

A test mule for Ferrari’s 458 replacement was spotted in northern Europe recently, but this was still in the very early stages of development.

It is likely being used to calibrate traction and stability systems; the mule was first spotted driving on a frozen lake.

The new car it will eventually spawn won’t be a direct replacement for the 458 but rather a substantial update, meaning a common chassis.

Ferrari did the same with the California’s transformation into the California T, and we saw something similar with the 458 Italia’s predecessor, the F430, which shared its chassis with its own predecessor, the 360 Modena.

With the 458 first hitting the scene in 2009, it’s likely we’ll see its replacement late next year.
