This gorgeous blue beauty is Lambo’s first ever plug-in hybrid combining their 5.2-litre V10 gas motor and 7-speed DSG from the Huracán with 3 electric motors for a total output of 910hp!! 602hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Amazing stuff. It hits from 0-60 in just 3.0 seconds flat and a top speed of… oh, who cares. Ben Franklin would be proud. 56mpg, baby…

It also goes 31 miles on pure Electric. That’s up and down PCH… Nieeeeccce….

Long Beach Gran Prix Zoo opens with a BAM!

Yup, the animals were out in full force. You had your RaceRhinos, Elephantabulous Models, Lion engined road rockets and the Flying Winged Fan… tasaurus.’ (That was me).

We headed down to the Long Beach Gran Prix for fun in the California sun. Our team perused the paddocks, hung with the stars of race and show like Uncle Joe… (That was a rhyme…) and ate the most expensive sandwich ever produced. $17 bucks for a Tuna Salad w/Chips and a NOS. Lame… but fun! Even James Bond had to pay to get into this one…

It was great to meet new fans and all car nutz!

Check it…

Fireball’s “Cool Designs of the Week”

Cool cars on RODEO…

rodeo

What a ridiculously cool day! All days should be like this, not just Father’s Day. The main highlight was the 2009 Rodeo Drive Concours d’ Elegance. Seriously expensive machines… in the sun.

My son Sean, Kathie and I strolled among multi-millions of dollars worth of machines including Delahaye, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Bentley, BMW, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Packard, an Electric Cobra, Smarts, Green Vehicles,  Tesal and even a Bentley Chopper. Yea, all cheapies, of course. Let me just take them all, thank you. Even Sean sat in the Lincoln from the TV show “Entourage.”

But on Rodeo, it’s no holds barred. The streets were packed with onlookers… even in the trees. The major highlight of the show was this DDR (Dumb Diamond Ring) on display. At the sheer cheap stupid price of $744,000.00 I mean, come on… Let’s get real. Put something in the window that’s REALLY expensive you bunch a’ lame o’ cheap basterds.What moron got cold feet and stuck the small stone in the window??? Sheesh!

Imagine. Strolling down Rodeo and you “pop” into a wee lil’ store to pick up something for your honey squeeze. A tiny lil’ rock for just under a mil. I’m sorry, but that’s just plain stupid in a really stupid sort of way. What could YOU do with $744,300.00??? Let us begin with making a list of 744,000 things, yo!

But the cars were smokin’ hot.  SO, here we go folks….

Holy SAN FRANCISCO!!!

torbin.JPGthepaddock.JPGbentley.JPGferrari.JPGlambo.JPGlombard.JPGthestreet.JPG

This past week, the boys of MyRide and I headed to San Francisco to shoot two new episodes of “WORLD OF CARS.” And boy, was this a crazy week…

FADE IN

The Club. Not just any club, but CLUB SPORTIVA. An extremely well run dream generating auto enthusiast club, catering to those wishing to drive the ULTIMATE EXOTIC! And thanks to head honcho, Torbin Fuller, that’s exactly what you get.

I’m saving the details for the upcoming episode, but let me just tell you that getting involved with these guys will light your fire!

…We started off the day driving the Bentley Continental GT, then on to the Ferrari F430 and finally to the Lamborghini Gallardo. SICK!!! It was like riding a 50 foot wave,…..FOR 6 HOURS STRAIGHT!!

Then, it was onto Lombard Street to run the “Crookedest Street on the Planet.” Or is it? (What’s the picture above?) Only time and the episode will tell. Coming in just a couple of weeks, folks!

But, if you’re ever in San Francisco, and you love cars, then CLUB SPORTIVA should be your first stop! Big thanks to all the boys there that helped us out! Especially, Torbin. An incredibly humble and passionate car guy, doing it all for the right reasons…
