…The Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition is one bad bull?

Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition

It’s definitely not a style that matches everyone’s tastes, but I wouldn’t turn down an Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition if someone gave one to me!

The car, which takes Lamborghini’s already potent Murcielago LP640 and kicks it up to eleven with a new ECU, new headers, new camshafts, modified cylinder heads, high flow catalytic converters and mufflers, butterfly-valve controlled exhaust cut-outs, and special air filters that bring the car up to 710 hp, also includes a host of other do-dads and whatnots that make it truly one of a kind.

Or so LP710 owners thought before the Christian Audigier edition came along (or rather, five of them) giving the already exclusive car an extra helping of exclusivity.

Each of the new ‘haute-couture’ Lamborghinis are done in matte black on the outside, and then Audigier (of Ed Hardy fame) custom designs an airbrush exterior and a stitched interior to the customer’s specifications.

Power and exclusivity are never a cheap combination, but this is a special case, as each of the five cars to be made will set you back an estimated $690,000! As a result, don’t expect to see this car outside of a well groomed country club lawn or art exhibit/museum near you!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: R1 Powered Golf Cart?

Question: What’s got four wheels, 125-horsepower, does wheelies and burnouts, and will probably get you kicked out of the country club?

Answer: A golf cart with an engine swap from a 2007 Yamaha R1.

Since a picture’s worth a thousand words, this video writes a novel:

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series?

Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series takes the country club favorite and leaves it out in the rain until it’s good and mad and then unleashes it onto the streets.

Based on the already beastly SL65, the AMG Black Series lightens the load to the tune of 550 pounds through the use of a carbon fiber hood, fenders, and trunk, as well as a fixed carbon fiber roof with integrated roll cage in place of the SL65’s retractable hard top.

A biturbo, 6.0-liter V12 provides the motivation, and with 661 hp and 738 lb.-ft. of torque on tap, and 60 flies by in 3.9 seconds on your way to a top speed of 199 mph.

They’re only making 200 of them for the States, and with a price tag of $320,000, it’s probably not something you’re going to see everyday buying milk at the grocery store, but if a low slung, wide body Mercedes creeps up in your rear view, proceed with caution.

…The Ferrari California is here?

Ferrari California

Though it might look a little funky from the front, it’s all business from the back and sides.

Ferrari just announced the “hugely versatile, innovation-packed GT Maranello” they’re calling the Ferrari California. (Take that, other states!)

Featuring 8-cylinders of mid-front mounted Grand Tourer power, it’s exclusively a convertible with a folding hard top for when you’re ready to mess up the ‘do.


0 – 100 km/h in less than 4.0 seconds, 7-speed dual clutch transmission, multilink rear suspension, F1-Trac traction control system, Brembo brakes, carbon-ceramic discs, etc. Basically, if you want it in a sports car, then it’s there.

To me, the front looks a little bubbly, and the wheels don’t do anything for me, but the back looks pretty good with single tail lights and vertical exhaust, and the side looks pretty good as well with classic proportions, so maybe this prancing horse will grow on me soon enough.

Look for it at Ferrari dealerships and country clubs near you.
