The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 looks a lot better on the road than it does at a car show

I’ve actually just realised that we’d basically never seen the new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 ‘in the wild’. So far, we’d seen the press pictures, we’d seen pictures on social media from car events where the Countach was present, but we’d never seen it on the road. Until now. Earlier this week, Lambo took one … More The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 looks a lot better on the road than it does at a car show

Just when you thought you wouldn’t get your monthly dose of “Italian supercars no one’s ever heard of”

This is the Anomalya, the latest supercar from Italy. I know I said it doesn’t have a name but it does, what I meant was this is yet another supercar made in Italy by a company no one’s ever heard of. It’s made in a small town near Lucca, Tuscany and it’s basically the result … More Just when you thought you wouldn’t get your monthly dose of “Italian supercars no one’s ever heard of”

Yet another supercar from an unknown brand, but this one’s cheaper than most

This is the Bermat GT-Pista, yet another supercar from a brand no one’s ever heard of, but the company that builds it, Bermat (from Northern Italy), said it is going to cost “no more than 200,000 euros”.

The old SLS AMG was mad. It was powered by a 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8, putting out 571 hp and it weighed, when all is said and done, about a million tons. In theory, the SLS would do zero-to-sixty in 3.7 seconds but the truth is you’d never get to sixty, because you’d be facing … More Driving the Mercedes AMG GT-C down a cypress-lined Tuscan road

The Ferrari Roma is a lot better than I thought it would be

In the 1980s, my hometown used to be the third wealthiest city in Italy and expensive cars were selling like hot cakes. Then things changed and, well, it no longer is. However, there’s still a Ferrari dealership in town and I was finally able to get acquainted with the all-new Ferrari Roma. There were plans … More The Ferrari Roma is a lot better than I thought it would be

Parco Valentino: on the Verge of Becoming the World’s Biggest Car Show

The name is Salone Auto Torino del Parco Valentino, which is Italian for “Turin Car Show at the Parco Valentino”, but everybody calls it “Valentino”. It is named after the public park in central Turin in which it is held, it’s open to the public, it’s completely free and, this is what you want to … More Parco Valentino: on the Verge of Becoming the World’s Biggest Car Show

Flabbergasted Events → Geneva Pt.3 Ferrari 488 Pista

A while ago, an international, highly respected and well known car brand held a party to introduce its latest SUV. It was an amazing gig.
