…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.

Reiter Engineering Lamborghini Gallardo Details

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:

…The Zenvo ST1 is one fast ride?

Zenvo ST1

It may look like the combination of a VW GTI grill, Maserati Corse hood, Lamborghini Murcielago side scoops, Lexus IS-F gill slits, Ferrari F599 quarter windows and F430 side mirrors, Nissan 370Z roof and GT-R taillights, but when you’ve got 1,104 horses of turbocharged AND supercharged power under the hood, no one’s really going to see anything but a blurry view of the rear bumper.

Called The Zenvo ST1, this Danish supercar has been in the works since 2004, but is just now going through its final stages of testing and is expected to see the light of day (all 15 of them) some time in early 2009.

Zenvo ST1 Detail

Specs include the twin-charged 7.0-liter V8, six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and plenty of carbon fiber to keep the weight down, and stats come in at 3.2 to 62 mph, 120 mph in under nine seconds, and a top speed of 233 mph.

No pricing information is currently available, but if you have to ask…

…Bullit should have been Italian?

Bullit

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:

…Your car is dirty?

Lamborghini Gallardo

You’ve probably had your car cleaned before, and you may have even had it detailed once or twice, but I can promise you that you’ve never had it cleaned and detailed like Clark’s Ne Plus Ultra can clean and detail it.

Recently, Clark decided to photograph and document his entire process for the Detailing World message boards, and reading through it is like a how-to for the automotively obsessed.

With four days of washing, waxing, measuring, taping, prepping, polishing, and even painting, the car comes out looking better than it ever has, even when compared to a factory fresh example.

Makes your bucket of suds seem rather simple by comparison, doesn’t it?

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: ASI W66GTS?

ASI W66GTS Sides

It’s hard to deny that the ASI W66GTS is anything but a head turning car. (In case you were wondering, ASI stands for Accuracy, Spirit and Imagination.)

ASI W66GTS Front And Back

Featuring the company’s dry carbon fiber hood, trunk and wing, the gold Bentley’s strikingly flowered paint scheme is hand painted onto the car by none other than Japan’s very own Nakamura Tetsuei.

If you’re worried that the exterior was the only part of this car to go under the knife though, then fear not, as the twin-turbo W12 was also the beneficiary of a hefty power jump to the tune of up to 800 horsepower.

It’s definitely not a car for everybody, but in a land filled with Ferraris and Lamborghinis, young oil tycoons are having to try harder and harder each day to stand out at the Dubai drive through.
