This guy named Slavche Tanevski made the concept for the Lamborghini Madura. He is a student at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. This project was done as a part of the Lamborghini Raw Materials Project led by the Professor Doctor Othmar Wickenheiser, and all the students at the school could take part of the project.
The appreciation of Feruccio Lamborghini to the culture in Spain and bull fighting led to naming all of the Lamborghini cars after some famous places or bulls or families linked to bulls. This car is named respecting that tradition, after an island in Indonesia that is very famous for bull races.
The Madura concept is a proposal for the Lamborghini’s first hybrid car expected for 2016. He says that to make a car more nature-friendly and more efficient, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be good looking, exciting and fast. But, he thinks that this new propulsion system should be defined on the looks of the vehicle.
The body of the Madura is rather cab-backwards style that is something new for today’s Lamborghini range, but as side view silhouette is not unfamiliar to Lamborghini, particularly the Lamborghini Urraco and Silhouette had very similar body-cab structures.
Proportionally, the Lambo has rather equally long overhangs and a short wheelbase. The short wheelbase of the car gives it better driving performance and better agility. On the other hand, the long overhangs are visually shortened by playing with the thin layering surfaces that are part of the separate body elements.
The front of the car is aerodynamic and very sleek. It consists of bonnet with electric engine below, and spoiler with blades in the middle for better cW result and more depth of the design. The headlights are horizontally oriented and very thin to emphasize the cars’ width.
The tail of the car is analog to the front. Again, there is a play with more bodies and blades in between. They intersect by flowing or overlapping parallel. As special features are the spoilers that grow out of the side panels and when braking they are connected with laser beams, as a symbol for the electric drive.
The Lamborghini Ankonian concept by Slavche Tanevski is one of the two proposals that this guy did it for his first project at school. The design of this Lambo was done in 2008 and his design was chosen in the top 3 designs by the Chefdesigner of Lamborghini, and he got sponsored to do the model. This model was done in clay and it took him much effort and much time. He finished the hard model in July 2009.
This guy followed the Lamborghini tradition and he named the car “Ankonian” after the bull type that is popular for his black hair, and that is the reason why he chose black.
The Ankonian concept is a mid-engined supercar that shows environmental responsibility and is not green, so because of that is downsized. He didn’t choose the today’s midengine supercar clichés (cab forward, extreme width, aggressive graphical elements), but he chose cab backward classical GT silhouette, narrow body, and combination/complexity of angular and soft surfaces. Instead of showing aggression and power through some wild graphical elements, he achieved the same effect through the complexity of the main body that is rather softly designed, and the angular, sharp and stealthy elements that remind of shields.
Regarding the design language, he put the Reventon style to one level forward, even more crazy and aggressive, but more harmonious and yet elegant. The main themes behind this concept, which absolutely make the preferred design language more strong, are ‘hardcore’ and ‘underground’. This is accomplished by the triangular forms, but mostly with the combination of color matt dark grey and shiny black.
During the design process, they brought back the tradition, they did it old-school clay modeling instead the CAD modeling. It took about 6 months to build the model and it was a good chance to try different possibilities concerning the proportions and surface management. The design doesn’t look artificial, but mature.
Even though very insane and on first view complicated, all Ankonian intersections and lines work perfectly together. Because of the tension in the lines and the convex and concave surfaces, there is an impression of a dynamic and strong body. The fact that the tail of the car was put on a diet and the big canyons give the car a very light look. The arrow-like door graphic and the symbolic presence of wings make the car very dynamical, the hot-rod stance gives the Lambo a push forward.
By having very thin OLEDs installed between the surfaces and leaving the typical headlight graphic, a mysterious and eccentric feeling is achieved. The same standard was used at the back of the car too, by performing an alien-like face with those 2 big exhausts like eyes, and the diffuser like a mouth. The lights are positioned in that place that man would not expect.
In the video here we have one burnout challenge between Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The Dodge Charger has an auto transmission, while the Challenger has 6 speed manual transmission. We are sure that you will enjoy the following massive burnouts. What do you think, which one of these two monsters does a better burnout? The Challenger or the Charger? Share your opinion with us.

We know that you still can’t forget Ken Block destroying the streets and freeways in Los Angeles in his all-wheel-drive 1965 Mustang coupe. This video comes from Ford Performance together with Vaughn Gittin Jr. celebrating the 50 years of Mustang past performance. Gittin said that Ford Mustang has had a great 50 year history and he was honored to be a part of for the last 10 years. He had some of the best memories and moments of his life behind the wheel of this powerful vehicle, just like many other Mustang owners.
This video starts off with the blue coupe with Mike Maier on a desert road with tumbleweeds, pulling up to a stop sign, and the launching off into a drift with 7 other Mustangs. The video ends with the eight car synchronized drifts under the tagline that says “50 Years of Fun”. Turn on your speakers and enjoy the following video.
We know that you already know many things about the new 2015 Ford Mustang. Maybe you know that the 2.3 liter EcoBoost I-4 slots above the V6 engine in the United States and produces more power, it is lighter in weight, puts 320 lb-ft of torque and boasts better fuel economy.
Aside from the 6 speed manual transmission, the Racing Red EcoBoost Premium tester is almost the same vehicle like the automatic-equipped EcoBoost Premium that they already put through its paces. The weight of the car is 146 pounds less than the manual Ford GT that they tested. This car weighs 150 pounds less than the manual version, and that means it is 4 pounds lighter than the automatic version.
With the same 2.3 liter EcoBoost 4 cylinder engine delivering 310 HP as the automatic, the manual has almost the same numbers. Both Mustang completed the 0 to 60 MPH sprint in 5.6 seconds, but the manual little trailed the automatic in the ¼ mile. Their tester got there in 14.4 seconds at a speed of 97.4 MPH, while the automatic in 14.1 seconds at 97.8 MPH.
Because the car was equipped with the Performance Pack that costs $1,995, which adds beefier braking hardware and a larger-diameter rear anti-roll bar, the unique performance test where the automatic win over the manual was the braking test, where the automatic stopped two feet shorter than the 108 feet of the manual. It looks like the tires 255/40 Pirelli P Zero of the automatic included in the performance package didn’t make a difference around the figure 8, either, like the manual posted a 25 second lap time and a 0.85 g average, while the automatic has a 25.5 second lap time and 0.80 g average.
Despite the fact that is heavier, it also bests the last generation automatic Ford Mustang V6 performance pack in most of the tests. That car delivers 305 HP and 280 lb-ft of torque, completed the 0 to 60 MPH spring just 0.2 second slower than the EcoBoost manual. Also, it lagged in the figure 8, where it recorded a 25.5 second time with just a 0.74 g average. The only test where the V6 matched the performance of the EcoBoost was the ¼ mile, where both cars passed the mark in just 14.4 seconds, and the V6 just did it with a faster speed of 98.5 MPH. This could happen because the EcoBoost;s 4th gear sucks the acceleration out of the powerband, according to the associate online editor Benson Kong. He said that there is a shift to 4th right before 90 MPH, so we can expect whatever RPM the EcoBoost lands on is just a little lower that what’s needed to hold that advantage over the V6 engine.
When we speak about the manual transmission on the car, Ford guaranteed more precise drive and easier engagement thanks to the new shift linkage design that surely delivered a silky smooth feel. The clutch of the car was easy on the calves in stop and go traffic, and hill hold help held for a great amount of time, so you could never feel like you are going to back up into the car behind you as soon as your foot left the brake. Driving all over the town in the Ford Mustang was rewarding and that is thanks to its low rpm torque. Shifting the gears by yourself, returns 1 MPG more in the city and combined MPG.
Even though in this EcoBoost model you can hang onto a gear for the time you desire, you still won’t be able to find much excitement in the note of the engine. It is very subtle and many times you will forget what exactly you are driving. It didn’t sound like a muscle car for sure, and it didn’t even look like a muscle car from the inside, but that is not a bad thing. The cabin is finely appointed, though the display screen is positioned a little lower into the dash. The good additions on the tester included $795 voice-activated navigation system and $1,595 Recaro seats. With many other goodies, including adaptive cruise control, reverse park assist, and 20 inch wheels, the grand total for the tester came out to amazing $37,775. For that money you can buy a bare-bones GT with a $650 reserve.
It looks like more people splurge on the GT, as Ford says about 50% of the sales are for the GT, and the other 50% split between the V6 and the EcoBoost. Ford did note that the sales for the EcoBoost are beginning to creep up. Although this Ford Mustang makes the most sense like a daily driver, it all depends on if you do the things for yourself or just sit back and enjoy.
The Atlantic Road is located in the Midwest part of the Norwegian coastline and it is part of the Norwegian national road 64. It is a very popular attraction in the country with a length of 8274 meters or 5.1 miles.
Driving along this road is like it is teetering on the edge of the sea. This road is regarded like one of the most amazing roads in the world. It connects the towns of Kristiansund and Molde, which are the two most important population centers in the county of Møre og Romsdal located in the Fjord Norway. The road starts about 30 km southwest of the Kristiansund, and ends 47 km north of Molde.
The road looks like a roller coaster with amazing views and curvy bridges. This is the favorite road for many drivers and riders. It has been recognized like the Norwegian Construction of the Century, considered a National Tourist Route and designated a Cultural Heritage Site.
This road includes eight bridges with a length of 891 meters total. The construction of the road began on August 1983, and the road was opened on 7 July 1989, the construction took 6 years. During the construction of the road, the area was hit by twelve European windstorms. The surface of the Atlantic road is asphalt and it had a cost of 122 million Norwegian krone. The Atlanterhavsveien is built on a few small islands and is spanned by several landfills and 8 bridges.
There are many amazing photo opportunities here and the drive is definitely worth it. In Norwegian. This road is called the Atlanterhavsveien. The curvy road arches and dips over the waves of the Norwegian Sea that very often crash over the pavement during some sea storms, and during the construction it was subjected to 12 hurricanes. The road took a 5.2 mile segment of the County Road 64 in Norway and it consists 7 bridges, several causeways and 4 viewpoints.
The weather in this zone is really unpredictable. It doesn’t take much time for the sun to change over to snow fall.
The Atlantic Road is one of the greatest roads in the world. The view is spectacular. Enjoy the view.

The hot rod truck Piss’d off Pete was built from a 1960 Peterbilt semi truck mode 351. The top of the truck was chopped and the cab of the truck was re-skinned with a new aluminum. Under the hood of the truck there is a Detroit diesel 12v71 about 1972 vintage. It has 2 superchargers and each cylinder is 71 cubic inch. The Detroit Diesel delivers 474 horsepower and 1200 ft. lbs. of torque at 2150 RPM.
This truck is dangerously loud and has an unforgiving attitude. The sound hits about 140 decibels. The truck was sold to a very happy private collector.
Grubb hit celebrity hot rod status at the time when he sold an earlier creation – The Blastolene Special, to the talk show host and car collector Jay Leno. That car has an aM47 Patton tank engine. Leno had to see this hot rod truck Piss’d off Pete, and he together with Grubb went for a spin in it around Burbank in California for an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
The car took about 3,000 hours to build over a span of 5 months. Some of the special features of the Pete are: airplane-like riveted doors, a 60 MPH speedometer, nickel plated boat tail 35 gallon gas tank, aluminum bomber seats with western leather work, and ’38 rear view mirror from Bob Drake and oval swan neck side view mirrors.
