What good is the internet if we don't use it to drool over things we can never have? Today's Weekend Wallpaper is the Lamborghini Aventador, which can be yours for a mere $397, 500. Made of carbon fiber with aluminum front and rear frames, this model is about 100 pounds lighter than its predecessor and is reported to hit a top speed of 217 mph.
Photographer Jonathan Camere told us how he got the shot:
The tunnel itself is 4,200-foot undersea tunnel that connects a main highway right into PortMiami. It reroutes 1.5 million trucks from using downtown Miami streets. The best part of the tunnel for Miami car culture is that it is just shy of one mile long, and at 120 feet under water, it creates amazing acoustics for cars with loud exhaust.
Honestly, I wanted to shoot a car in there. I knew I would be the only person to be able to pull it off. Closing the tunnel after it was open to the public would be a huge and very expensive undertaking, so I asked the management company to shoot there before the tunnel was finished.
We talked to management for months, and we didn't know if we were going to be able to make it happen. After radio silence for many months, we were contacted by the management out of the blue on a Friday. They told us we could shoot at 5 am that Sunday, because the tunnel would open to the public on Monday. It was quite a crazy weekend but I am glad we were given the opportunity and I am very thankful.
We're thankful, too, Jonathan, because we get to feast our eyes on this delicious Lambo.
