In your defense, it is a pretty good photoshop. It probably gets everyone the first time they see it.

I just noticed that whoever did it also removed the Acura badge.

All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world, so there was only one thing I could do:
was ding a ding dang, my dang a long racecar.

It's a love affair. Mainly jebus, and my racecar.




I need that as a poster for the garage I don't have. Awesome.

Stumbled upon this on my way home yesterday:





Some sort of stretched, Ute'd Mercedes. Possibly an old hearse? It had ads for a body shop on the back and was sprayed in that color changing purple paint.

Edit: a lookup in the rego db says it's an E280...

It's a flower car, used in Mafia funerals everywhere!

Third gen Celica liftback. IMO the high point of Celica design.


VVVVV Ahh yeah, that's even more correct. But the Mk II Supra was still a "Celica Supra" back in the day.

Looked through the entire album; great pictures! I'm absolutely in love with both of those ZR1s. That Viper front end is fantastic too. Needless to say, I'm super jealous and would have loved to be there.

So, this trailer showed up today...


Something awesome was inside.


It's a Agera R!


Dive planes on the front for additional downforce. They're also the same awesome blue carbon fiber the stripes on the hood are. Depending on which way you look at them, they're blue or black. Once saw a whole Veyron in this color. It's a lot cooler in small doses.


The trunk / boot upfront is VERY small. Then again, it's big enough to fit the roof or a couple of bags of press material. So if you're looking for a family car. This is not the car for you.


With crazy doors you can open next to a curb! They're high enough a normal curb won't bother you. Actual millage may vary. The doors are VERY cool. They actually have a damper in them that means they can't "slam" open. You can throw them with all your strength or loose them in a gust of wind but they won't open that hard.


Inside is hard to see. It's mostly Alcantara with a splash of leather. Very luxurious. The back wall is white leather, amazing. You can also see the "blue" side of the carbon fiber from this angle. You can also see the door release button and they key slot. The key is a proximity fob, but just in case the battery is dead, there is a hole. Was not allowed to sit inside. The car isn't mine after all.


Twin tubo V8 putting out a piddly 1170 hp. If you look to the left of the gear box, the silver you see is the floor of the car. There is NOTHING back here but engine and frame. The weird crooked bar seemingly asymmetrically placed on top of the gear box / suspension housing is actually the antiroll bar equivalent.


Holy poo poo! It's Christian von Koenigsegg. Awesome guy, really into his car and it shows. He spent a lot of time just showing us everything about the car and answering all our silly questions about it. He had a dream and went for it. I really admire that and I'd love to buy a car off him but I'm not that rich.


The cap on the left is washer fluid. It has the Koenigsegg shield on it, but the picture washed it out. The brake cooling duct is kevlar. You can also see that the harnesses for the car apparently come with it. I was also told the wheel bearings are off a helicopter as they could not find a normal car bearing that was stiff enough.


Left parked next to a Prius. Somehow fitting. You can also see the blue stripes from this angle.


Today was a awesome day.

I like how each new model is the natural progression from the previous without losing the aesthetic appeal that makes it so recognizable and iconic.

If only other manufacturers would do the same. I'm looking at you BMW.

I too shared this sentiment until I was fortunate enough to attend a seminar hosted by Mr Bangle himself. He explained that basically design at BMW was stagnating, a point he proved by putting a 3 series, C Class and A4 next to each other and deleting their 'iconic' features aka, grill, headlight, etc. All the cars were identical. He had to do things the way he did. Porsche's iconic feature is its body, so they have it real easy when maintaining brand identity.
