The King is dead. Long live the King!

Nürburgring has a new record holder!

Aventador SVJ

Porsche’s GT2 RS record of September last year was broken today by the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ by about 2.3 seconds. The new  record for the Nordschleife is now in 6:44.97. According to AutoBlog a full video is expected to be presented soon. And it better be a good one, WITHOUT edition like the one Lamborghini made for the Huracán Performante’s supposed record .

So that means I’ll need one more Lambo for the collection…

The Birdcage

The Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage. A sui geniris car, and very possibly one of the three coolest cars ever to come from Maserati. From a time when it was still possible to make good race cars on a budget. This is one I’ll have to get for the W143 garage.

A very cool 9’42” video from Petrolicious. In fact, if you’re a gearhead (or more properly in this case, a petrolhead) you sure will find some cool and interesting stuff to see there.
