Ferrari Gets A Tattoo

Tattooed Ferrari

What you see here is a Ferrari F430 that has been covered in cowhide and then tattooed by French artist Phillipe Pasqua.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Lazareth’s Renault Twingo V8 Trophy?

Renault Twingo Trophy

A typical Renault Twingo makes 75 horsepower. A typical Renault Twingo V8 Trophy that has gone through the Lazareth shop makes 180 horsepower. If that formula doesn’t spell success, then nothing will!

The added power comes from a 3.5-liter Range Rover V8, which gets stuffed between the rear subframe and turns the French tuner into a terror. Along with the extra engine, the Twingo Trophy gets a fully custom widebody kit, new rims and tires, and a heaping helping of flat matte paint.

The result is supercar performance in a package that’s just larger than a go-kart, proving once again that you should never judge a book by it’s teeny tiny cover.

…Bullit should have been Italian?


It’s supposed to be a Bullit remake (the site’s in French) but regardless of what it’s supposed to be, a black Ferrari F430 chasing an orange Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera through the streets of Paris is definitely something to be seen and heard:
