…Reiter Engineering makes Lamborghini Gallardos for the dirt?

Reiter Engineering Lamborghini Gallardo

Sure, you COULD drive your new Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 on the pavement, but what would be the fun in that?

For those that are looking for a little more adventure out of their six-figure supercar, Reiter Engineering has created a Gallardo that can compete in just about any rally event in the world, including those that take place in the dirt.

To help with this off-road adventure, Reiter Engineering gives the car a smaller rear wing, shorter front splitter, dampers with greater travel and a hand-brake for those quick 180-degree turns that you so often need to make after putting the car nose first into an embankment by the side of the road.

According to Reiter Engineering, “we had absolutely no technical problems whatsoever, which surprised us a little as the suspension forces are incomparably higher than on the race track”.

Sure, it’s not the prettiest way to get your Lamborghini from one town to the next, but it just might be the most fun!

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, these do get driven, and yes, they also get crashed:

…It’s Website Wednesday: Exotic cars get wrecked?

Wrecked Exotics is “the Internet’s largest collection of exotic car crash photos”, and also a great way turn any hiccup in your day into a “well, I guess it’s not that bad”. Sure, it must be nice to afford a car with a six figure price tag, but I’d be willing to bet the day that owner put it through a steel pole was probably not a good day. All told, over a quarter of a billion dollars in automotive carnage has been documented. If you’ve ever dreamed about driving one, chances are someone has crashed one, and someone else got it on film.
