Brain, it's What's for Dinner

Ok, so the worst just happened, like something totally NOT GOOD. Perhaps a natural disaster has devastated your country; maybe a virulent disease or food-borne illness is spreading throughout the population; conceivably even the hand of God has reached down from on high and caused an outright nuclear meltdown. Whatever the reason, things are seriously jacked.

Lamborghini-Aventador-Roadster-Main-Art

Believe it or not this wild-looking machine is not the product of some secret military program. It may look like a stealth fighter but it’s actually built for the road. This is the Lamborghini Aventador 50th Anniversario Roadster.

10. Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ


Like the 2012 SEMA Show in America, the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon was packed with Toyota and Subaru’s latest sports car. But that’s not to say that there weren’t plenty of other attractions on the Makuhari Messe Convention Center show floor. 

Coming in 10th on our list of Top 10 Cars of the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon is the Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ. Perhaps what the CR-Z should have been from the factory, minus the rear spoiler, the Mugen RZ is a supercharged hybrid powered by a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder with 153 hp. Five-away adjustable coilovers give the CR-Z the sporty handling it deserves, while the body styling gives the CR-Z a much more attractive design. Too bad Mugen is only planning on selling 300 of them.

With both styling and power, it’s hard for Lamborghini to make the Aventador a more drool-worthy car, but just by removing the top, the Italian supercar maker managed to make this bull even cooler.

With the advent of hybrids and electric vehicles, many skeptics thought the age of high-performance sports car would die out. Reality couldn’t be any more different, as America has more than 70 cars on sale today that make 500-hp or more.

The number of vehicles pushing out 500-hp or more has nearly doubled in the last five years. What is more remarkable is more than a decade ago, there were just two vehicles in the club: the Ferrari 575M and the Lamborghini Murcielago. Now Ferrari alone has four models pushing out over 500-hp.

The ability to pump out so much horsepower has been aided by the leaps and bounds that engineering and technology has made over the last decade. Automakers are now able to equip their vehicles with smaller, more fuel efficient engines, which thanks to forced induction, can reliably crank out plenty of peak horsepower.

Without seeing the images, the idea of a matte green Lamborghini Aventador sounded awful to us. But after seeing images, we’re impressed by how fitting the flat Army green shade looks on the Italian super car.

That makes us wonder if there’s any color that the Aventador could possibly look bad in. The matte green Aventador doesn’t have quite the aggressive appearance that the matte black Aventador does, but it’s also rarer. The satin black wheels are a fantastic complement to the entire package.

The LP700-4 was spotted in Zurich, Switzerland where it recently sold for about $580,000 with 621 miles on the odometer. Yes, that’s quite the premium over the Aventador’s MSRP of $376,000, but someone clearly didn’t care when it comes to having 700 hp from a 6.5L V12 at the palm of their hands.

We know you’re thinking it — this is totally what a Halo Warthog would look like as an exotic super car.

Lamborghini-Aventador-J-06.JPG

The Lamborghini Aventador J took the world by storm when it debuted at the Geneva Motor Show – see our first look video here – but would you believe that it was built in a mere six weeks? 

According to Lamborghini designer Filippo Perini, the Aventador J was created entirely in-house after CEO Stephan Winkelmann asked the team to come up with something special for the Geneva Auto Show. “It was the 14th of January that Mr Winkelmann asked us to do something for Geneva,” says Perini in an interview with Top Gear. “A blank sheet. Do what you want. I drew up this car in a weekend…”

While a six week time frame would be impressive even if Lamborghini simply took their Aventador and turned it into a convertible, the Aventador J only retains the front hood, fenders, rear fenders, and headlights from the standard Aventador. All other panels were constructed from scratch to make the Aventador J truly one-of-a-kind.

And as we mentioned before, the Aventador J will be one-of-one and has been homologated in Italy meaning that it’s not just some concept car slapped together in six weeks to impress the public and the media. Some lucky person will have (or already has) possession of this amazing machine.

Usually our spy photos feature the latest secrets coming out of the auto industry, but one of our photographers happened to get some great shots of a Lamborghini Aventador crashing into a snow drift. 

Obviously this test driver was not well versed in the delicate act that is winter driving, which is especially hard when you have 700 hp under your right foot. Now, if you are worried about the car, or the driver, they both walked away unscathed. The photographer however was not so lucky, as the test driver leaped out of the car and charged the camera.

We must assume that he didn’t want his bad fortune displayed across the internet, but there wasn’t a Lambo’s chance on snow of that happening.

The 2012 Women’s World Car of the Year short list has just been announced, and women motoring writers from around the world will begin voting for their top picks.

Cutting a list of contenders from 300 down to 32, judges will now allocate points to the nominated cars that fall into four categories: Family Car, Luxury Car, Sports Car and Economy Car. Just one of the 10 criteria that cars are allotting points for is Child Friendliness, which is something vehicles aren’t usually judged on in a competition.

Winners of the 2012 Women’s World Car of the Year will be announced before the end of March, and awards will be presented at the Paris Motor Show in September. You can check out the complete short list after below.

Whether you’re on the 18-month waiting list and you’re just too impatient to wait or you don’t have the cash to buy one outright, you have the option to drive the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 for a day or a week. But be warned… it will still cost you big bucks.

If you live in Los Angeles, you’ll want to look up Black & White Car Rental. This car rental firm have just got in a white Aventador, accented with black wheels, and it’s available to be rented for a day, which will set you back $5,500, or for a week for $30,000. Sure, it’s a huge chunk of change, but when the price tag to own the Aventador is $373,000 (and upwards), it seems like a bargain.

If the Aventador is a little out of your price range to rent, Black & White has a few more affordable options available. You can rent a Porsche Boxster from $195 per day or the Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible from $254 per day.

The Lamborghini Aventador has inspired yet another flashy accessory that fans of the supercar will have to keep an eye out for – the Avenger Vertical Tourbillon Watch.

Designed by Marko Petrovic, this timepiece is still in the concept stage, but pictures of the Avenger Vertical Tourbillon promise great things from this luxury watch. Outfitted in black and orange, this watch takes style cues from the Aventador’s engine. Its face is styled after the Aventador’s engine cover and even features an engine roll bar. Holding it in place is a tire tread-like wrist band.

Since it’s still just a concept, there are no official specs, prices or a release date. But if it’s anything like its inspiration, it will be expensive and exclusive. We’ll keep you posted on updates and availability when they become available.
