Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
If you've never heard of a Vector M12, we can't say we are shocked, only 18 were built between 1995 and 1999 before the company folded for the same reasons most small exotic car companies don't make it—mismanagement, cash flow issues and lack of sales.
When Lamborghini replaced the legendary Diablo with the Murcielago in 2001 they ended the model's 11 year run with 40 individually numbered Special Edition cars. The final 40 cars were all individually numbered Diablo 6.0 VTs equipped with AWD and a 550 horsepower V12.
There isn't a whole lot beyond the raging bulls on the front of this Miura SV and Diablo SVR to indicate these two cars were cut from the same cloth. Even if these two cars were designed decades apart and look drastically different, they are both likely a little jealous of the new kid on the block.
The Diablo is one long, mean piece of Italian muscle, and these rich Japanese trend-obsessed Lambotaku have managed to ruin at least four of them, as well as a host of other racing bulls. Strobes? LED lights? Dragon graphics? Chrome wheels? Someone stop them. Someone stop them now.
Namesake for not only the eponymous 1966 supercar but most Lamborghinis, noted by Hemingway and countless dead matadors, these are the cunning, ferocious Miura bulls of Andalusia.
Do you know car people? Are you a car person? There is a world of awesome holiday gift opportunities out there beyond Porsche watches and Nascar cufflinks. Here's our selection of the weird and wonderful.
The Noah's Ark of untouched supercars we identified yesterday as belonging to the Sultan of Brunei may actually be in Singapore, despite being sold by some Kiwis.
A broker is selling 25 Ferraris, three Lamborghinis, and a Cizeta, among other rare supercars. All are unregistered with delivery mileage only, which means they almost certainly belong to the Sultan of Brunei. Who is selling the Sultan's cars?
Whatever Lamborghini will unveil later this week in Paris, here’s a reminder just how eternal a Lamborghini is. In particular, a Diablo from 20 years ago.
Hundred degree weather in NYC and DC? Not an issue when it comes with a Diablo being filled with an awkwardly sexy (or is that sexily awkward?) lady in a swimsuit.
This monstrous German broke a Murcielago by hanging on while the driver fries the clutch, then, above, he manages to hold back the ferocious power of a Diablo for seven seconds. Whoa!
If you're going to put a Detroit V8 with FWD transaxle amidships in your Fauxborghini and for some reason the Olds Toronado 425 (or even the 500-cube powerplant from a 1970 Eldorado) doesn't do it for you, how about the readily available Cadillac Northstar? That's what we've got here, and it can be yours for just…
The Turbo Buick-powered Fauxborghini Diablo we saw yesterday looked pretty quick, but only 400 horsepower? The real thing came with more like 500 horses, so we had to find a Fauxborghini that could beat that figure. Sure enough, here's this tube-frame brute that gets 600 fuel-injected horsepower (or maybe that's bull…
Taking care of recent Hell Project business first, the Bentley roared- or, rather, was towed- right past the Rolls in our most recent Choose Your Eternity poll, winning in a 75/25 landslide. Those cars were all right, but where's the eternal torment when you can simply walk away from your hopeless project after…
