    $1.5 million Ferrari Enzo crashes into Canadian lake

    "A rare custom Ferrari Enzo (itself already more rare than steak tartare) — claimed to be the world's fastest — crashed into a Canadian lake earlier today as part of the Targa Newfoundland race. No word on any injuries, but the doors are open so that's a good sign."

    UPDATE

    "The drivers of the car were competing in a stage of the 1,300-mile Targa Newfoundland rally race today when the Enzo lost control and pulled a Bugatti Veyron lake crash by flying into the body of water pictured."

    Let Us Take A Moment

    425 Motorsports would like to remember a great legend today. Colin Mcrae lost his life in 2007 in a tragic helicopter crash. The story is heartbreaking and we would like to show our respect to his family and friends by dedicating today's blog to Colin on the Anniversary of his passing. You were a great legend, a great husband and father...may you rest in peace.


    "The Scot’s name is legendary in the world of motorsport. A spectacular, flamboyant and totally committed driving style brought him to the attention of Motorsport enthusiasts at an early age and there was to be no denying the natural talent that ultimately rewarded him with the title of Britain’s first World Rally Champion in 1995 and an MBE from The Queen for his outstanding achievement."

    "Basic helmet design has come a long way since... wait, no it hasn't. Sure, Snell ratings change every few years as our understanding of head trauma increases, but the basic skull bucket remains pretty much the same as it has for decades."

    Chevy Runs Deep, for the first 100 years and into the next..


    ARTICLE COURTESY OF: CHEVY.COM

    "The brand was founded in Detroit, in November 1911, by racer Louis Chevrolet and General Motors founder William C. “Billy” Durant, who developed cars that quickly earned reputations for performance, durability and value. Those traits remain at the core of Chevrolet, which is the world’s fourth-largest automotive brand.

    From the very start, Chevrolet brought technology and features typically reserved for more expensive cars to its lineup of affordable cars and trucks. The first Chevrolet — the Series C Classic Six — offered an electric starter and electric headlamps at a time when both were rarities among even luxury cars. In the decades that followed, innovations such as safety glass, fuel injection, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control systems were used on Chevrolet models at the same time as more expensive vehicles. As one of the largest-selling brands in the industry, Chevrolet’s early adoption of landmark technologies fundamentally changed the way they were applied to new vehicles."

    High Price Toys...

    Some guys get all the dough & all the luck. We however would not have a garage shaped like a pyramid..to each his own. Interesting Article.

    "Bloomberg is reporting that the sale of high-end and exotic cars in countries like the United Arab Emiratesmay swell by as much as 20 percent this year. The reason? Civilized countries just can't seem to kick their thirst for gasoline, and as a result, the price of a barrel of crude oil continues to hover at around $100 per barrel. All that cash is flowing straight into the bank accounts of aristocrats like Sheikh Hamad, who happens to own over 200 vehicles housed in a pyramid-shaped garage. Among his collection are a 16-foot-tall Dodge Power Wagon and what Bloomberg calls a "see-through disco car."
