Lamborghini Cabrera confirmed for 2014

A Lamborghini representative has announced a “Gallardo follower” will be launched in 2014.

Earlier this week Lamborghini released the first teaser for the Gallardo replacement and now they announced the car will go on sale in 2014. We won’t have to wait that long to find out details about the new model as a Lamborghini representative told InAutoNews a press release concerning the new entry-level model will be published before Christmas.

The spypictures show the September 2011 test drives at Nuremberg, please excuse the quality.

Set most likely to receive the Cabrera designation, the new bull from Sant’Agata Bolognese is rumored to pack a naturally-aspirated V10 5.2-liter engine developing 600 bhp (447 kW). It will have an AWD setup and power will be transferred with help from a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. There won’t be a manual gearbox offered but at least more radical special editions will have a rear-wheel drive layout.


Peter Andre enjoys his Lamborghini Gallardo

He is expecting his third child early next year with girlfriend Emily MacDonagh.

And Peter Andre took his mind off any nerves he might have as an expectant father by taking his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder for a spin.

The 40-year-old star drove the black sports car to ITV’s Christmas Party on Wednesday.

He looked equally slick for the evening,  wearing a silver-grey suit teamed with a matching tie and a black shirt. 

His flash supercar features 513 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox and retractable soft top.

Peter has owned the car for around 18 months,  while he has been spotted with several other sports cars in recent years,  including a Ferrari  California.

Meanwhile, Peter’s pregnant girlfriend Emily  MacDonagh, 23, is slightly less experienced when it comes to driving, and was seen being picked up for another driving lesson earlier this month. 

But Emily has a lot to fit in if she is  hoping to pass her driving test before giving birth, as her and Peter’s baby is  due in January.

Australian singer Pete, who has a son,  Junior, eight, and daughter, Princess, six, from his marriage to Katie Price,  has revealed he’s hoping for a little girl.

LA Motor Show News

Peculiar timing to have motor shows in Los Angeles and Tokyo at the same time, but there you go.

Tokyo had lots of concept cars on show, while Los Angeles mainly featured cars that are going to be hitting the showrooms soon. So let’s focus on LA,  especially because one of the stars of the show is homegrown – the coupe version  of the Jaguar F-Type. And yes, it will be cheaper than the roadster.

Jaguar F-Type coupe

The F-Type is some car. It’s no E-Type, but it’s not exactly ugly, either.

The good news, as we’ve already mentioned, is that it’s cheaper than the  roadster. The entry-level coupe is the F-Type with the same 335bhp 3.0-litre  supercharged V6 that’s fitted to the ­convertible – yours for £51,235 or six  grand less than the entry-level roadster.

The headline version is the R Coupe, with the same 542bhp V8 motor fitted to  the XKR-S (the F-Type R Roadster has 488bhp). That extra power plus the stiffer  bodyshell make it a serious weapon. Should be at £85,000.

Porsche Macan

It’s Porsche’s answer to Audi’s Q5, BMW’s X3 and, of course, the Range Rover  Evoque. It’s the Macan, and it arrives next April.

All Macans will be powered by V6 engines, two petrol and one diesel. The  petrol engines are Porsche’s own, with the entry-level twin-turbo 3.0-litre  producing 335bhp and a 3.6-litre Turbo S version with 394bhp. The diesel comes  from Audi and produces 254bhp. Performance? The hottest Macan will do 165mph and  0-62mph in 4.8secs. Smaller engines will be ­available from 2015, which  should bring the entry price down from the current £43,300.

BMW 4-Series Cabriolet

As we explained recently, BMW now calls its two-door 3-Series cars  “4-Series”, so the new Cabriolet is actually a 4-Series ­Cabriolet. Easy really. The range starts with the 420d SE at £36,675 and tops out at £44,970 for the 435i Luxury.

Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG

It’s a concept, but it’s more than likely Merc’s  GLA 45 AMG will hit the showrooms. The compact SUV uses the same 355bhp  2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo as the A-Class A45 AMG and will do 0-62mph in  under 5secs. As Merc is aiming at younger customers, a hot one makes sense.

Photographer captures ‘exploding, hatching’ cars

A Swiss photographer renowned for combining art and science has created a series of images capturing cars seemingly exploding and hatching.

On display at the MB&F MAD (Mechanical Art Devices) Gallery in Geneva, Fabien Oefner’s ‘Disintegrating’ and ‘Hatch’ series of images includes classic cars such as the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe, 1961 Jaguar E-Type, 1967 Ferrari 330 P4 and 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO.

Intended to look as if a specific moment in time has been captured on film, for the ‘Disintegrating’ series, Oefner blended hundreds of real photographs of a completely dismantled scale model car positioned piece by piece with fine needles and string to give the impression of it exploding.

Disintegrating Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR

An interpretation of a car’s birth, the ‘Hatch’ series was created by making a gypsum shell around a miniature car, then smashing it to create the illusion of the vehicle breaking out of its ‘egg’.

Oefner said it took almost two months to create each image, despite it appearing as if it was captured in a fraction of a second.

“The whole disassembly in itself took more than a day for each car due to the complexity of the models,” Oefner said.

“But that’s a bit of a boy thing. There’s an enjoyment in the analysis, discovering something by taking it apart, like peeling an onion.”

Fabian Oefner’s classic car images will be on display at the MAD Gallery until May 2014.

Thank you to David Zalstein |

With the aid of fine needles and pieces of string, the ‘disintegrating’ series comes to life through thousands of individual photographs. the intricate scale models of a Mercedes-Benz 300 slr uhlenhaut coupé with gullwing doors, a sleek, black Jaguar e-type, and a sensual Ferrari 330 p4 that Oefner creates, replicates every inner detail hidden within the hood. Carefully strung and placed floating in space, singular photos are taken of each part, then blended together in post-production to create one unified image.

‘What looks like a car falling apart is in fact a moment in time that has been created artificially by blending hundreds of individual images together. there is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment…freezing a moment in time is stupefying´,Oefner explains.

When bad things happen to a Lamborghini Aventador

What do you think of the decision to give the supercar a makeover like this?

A German tuning company recently spent £90,000 turning the stunning McLaren MP4-12C in to a psychedelic work of art. The $270,000 British built beast, owned by the likes of Jay Leno and Will.I.Am, boasts stunnin aestheitcs and raw power.

What prestige cars are the stars driving?

What luxury cars are most celebrities driving? Well, Mercedes and Range Rovers are often piloted by celebrities but we also see Lexus and Bentley becoming popular  in the recent years.  On the high end of things Aston Martin, Ferrari and Rolls Royce have also carved their area out in the Celebrity Cars market and have been attracting the likes of  Paris Hilton, Ashton Kutcher, 50 Cent, and Jay-Z just to name a few.

So sit back and enjoy some images that we’ve selected to show off the distinct nature of these famous celebrity prestige cars.

Britney Spears choice is the Maserati Gran Turismo.

Luxury cars of choice for sports masters

For those who manage to reach the pinnacle of their sport due to hard work, dedication and in some cases a touch of genius, the marque of car or cars they choose often reflect their own drive for perfection and they choose the best of the best.

The fastest man on the planet obviously has a penchant for speed. This is quite apparent for Olympic Gold 100m and 200m medalist Usain Bolt, as he’s written off two BMWs, has recently acquired a Nissan GT-R, and has now added this Ferrari California in what looks like the “grigio ingrid” color to his collection. Let’s hope he keeps this beauty on the road.

Cameras spotted Tiger getting into his black Mercedes-Benz S65. I love that Tiger rolls in the S65 instead of the S63. Not that the S63 isn’t sick, but lets face it, the S65 is pretty badass. What do you think of his wheels?

According to news reports, Ronaldo is selling his Bentley Continental Speed and other cars he acquired while playing for Manchester United, ahead of his move to Spain to play for Real Madrid.

Greg Norman the golfer  with $14,484,458 won in his career has chosen the Land Rover Range Rover Sport (albeit a limited edition available only to a select few ).

Maria Shaparova was driving a Range Rover Sport Supercharged but has just been announced as the brand ambassador for Porsche.

Cars help athletes establish an image with fans, potential sponsors and teammates. One of the first things Atlanta Braves pitcher Kenshin Kawakami did when he moved from Japan was buy a black Maserati Grand Turismo S. He already owned a Lamborghini Murcielago, but he needed something more understated for driving in the U.S. The Maserati costs $135,000; the Lambo costs $219,000 more.

“My favorite thing about the car is how it looks, how it’s really luxurious but not too flashy,” Kawakami says. “It’s got a really refined, elegant look.”

James Bonds´ perks of the job

Looks like Daniel Craig is taking full advantage of his “lifetime privileges” from the Aston Martin factory. After playing James Bond, Aston Martin told Craig he could essentially borrow anything he’d like, whenever he’d like. So why not take delivery of a new Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster on his birthday. Craig was spotted signing the papers outside his home last weekend.

The V12 Vantage is definitely an amazing ride but we’re not feeling the red — just doesn’t seem to suit the car if you ask us. What do you think? We say leave the red to the Ferrari’s!

After racking up three Bond films over the past seven years, Craig has apparently developed an affinity for James Bond’s ride of choice. As The Daily Mail tells us, Craig recently celebrated his 45th birthday by taking delivery of an Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster, though we doubt the car comes with the same “upgrades” as 007’s car.

Even sans machine guns, rocket launchers and an ejection seat, the limited-edition V12 Vantage Roadster delivers formidable performance. Its 6.0-liter V-12 engine serves up 510 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to get the luxury drop-top from 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 190 mph.

It’s not clear if the V12 Vantage Roadster was a gift from Craig’s wife, actress Rachel Weisz, or a gift to himself for reaching the five-years-short-of-half-a-century mark. It may even be a gift from Aston Martin, since the luxury automaker offered him the car of his choice back in 2008, following the release of Quantum of Solace.

In any case, we salute Craig’s properly British taste in automobiles, since we really can’t picture him behind the wheel of a Ferrari or a Lamborghini.

Beckhams Luxury Cars


We are all aware of David Beckham’s exquisite collection of luxury cars, and it’s awesome to see his matte Porsche 911 out on the streets as he takes his sons for some frozen treats at Santa Monica’s PinkBerry. It looks like he has a thing for matte finishes, his black Escalade shares the same paintjob as his Porsche!

David Beckham recently welcomed a new baby girl to the family and what better way to commemorate her arrival than a with new Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and a small customized number ‘7’ on the side. Not so sure Harper will be going for any joy rides soon but we’re sure it will only be a matter of time before we see David in it.


Check out David Beckham’s brand new Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. And incase you were wondering, yes, it’s all black!

David Beckham and Victoria Beckham were spotted driving to dinner in David’s Rolls Royce recently. The thing just looks mean when its in motion! Don’t you think so?

Thanks to Starzuncut

Beckham’s at it again and this time he’s in a new McLaren MP4-12C Spider. Beckham was spotted cruising around Los Angeles in the new McLaren this past weekend. Definitely a nice addition to his collection don’t you think?

Shout out to William and Rebecca for the tip!

Pink Supercars taking centre stage

News from the States shows that the seriously cool are happy to do the previously unthinkable, wrap their top of the range luxury cars ……pink.

Our reader that sent this tip in said he wasn’t sure how he missed this one and to be honest, I’m not sure how I missed this one either because it’s pretty hard to miss a pink Bugatti. Flo Rida wrapped his Bugatti in pink earlier this month in honor of breast cancer awareness month and posted these photos of himself with the car on Instagram. This isn’t the first time he’s switched the look of his Bugatti and I’m guessing it’s not the last either.

Nicki Minaj is giving her “Barbs” a little piece of her own life via her new fashion line — The Nicki Minaj Collection for Kmart. She wanted to give her “Barbs” something that they could easily afford so with that being said, she showed up to a Los Angeles Kmart for the big debut in a bright pink Lamborghini Aventador Roadster on matching pink Forgiato wheels. Now all the “Barbs” are going to be riding around in bubblegum pink cars…that’s just great.

We think we can excuse Flo Rida for the pink treatment as he was supporting such a great cause but reserve judgement on Nicki, what are your thoughts?

Thanks to

Its not just celebrities who joined the good cause, thanks to for the awesome collection of cars gone pink.

In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re showing you the best damn pink supercars in the world.
