Reminder: 2007 Gumball 3000 (April 28-May 5)

In celebration of tomorrow’s DAY 1 of the 2007 Gumball 3000 rally (ahem race), here is a video from April 30th, 2006 in London. These exotics are SICK, and I love how people have absolutely no problem painting them up with graphics and logos! (I can’t wait to do this to my exotic) I also want to re-iterate how SIMPLY AWESOME this race is and how I cant wait to have a Madwhips / Carzi sponsored car in the next ~3 years!

Click HERE to view the video!

Rapper-Actress Eve was arrested at 2:45am Thursday April 26 for investigation of driving under the influence after she crashed a Silver Maserati Quattroporte on Hollywood Boulevard. After watching the video you can clearly see the beached Maserati Quattroporte on the island divider. No further details of the crash have been released and it’s still a mystery to everyone if Eve had the Maserati Stability Program turned OFF to play a more realistic version of Grand Theft Auto – Hollywood Ballin’ Edition.

She was visited by Sean Penn shortly after being booked and has just recently posted $30,000 bail and released from Los Angeles County Jail. Court date has been set for May 17, 2007.

Remember kids, it’s not called Assault, its called get the *F* outta here.. ahahaha Hilarious!!

The Linux Penguin Logo “Tux” has been stuck to the nose of the Panoz/Honda in anticipation of meeting a donation goal. The Tux 500 is an effort to raise $350,000USD in exchange for a Primary Sponsorship + Team Linux name for the upcoming May 27th, 2007 Indy 500 race. As long as their efforts secure $25,000USD, the logos will stay on the car.

Photos: Zagato’s Maserati GranSport

Some sweet high-res photos have surfaced on the web of Zagato’s Coachbuilt Maserati Gransport Spyder. Please take note: the correct spelling of GRANsport. It is NOT GRANDsport or GRANDturismo, there is no “D”. It doesn’t seem that anyone over at WindingRoad.com ever bother to fully check their homework assignments for simple errors. Shame on you for insulting Maserati, as well as your integrity as an automotive journalist. On another note, I have observed other ridiculous amateur automotive fallacies from time to time which include spelling a Ferrari Spider as Spyder: Maserati spells it with a “Y”, and Ferrari spells it with a “I”. Finally, please address the Enzo as an “Enzo Ferrari”, not the other way around. Capiche?

Please enjoy these pictures of this modified Maserati GransSport commissioned by Paulo Boffi; a well-known entrepreneur in the furnishing and luxury design sector. This car is an homage to the 1954 Maserati A6 G Zagato.

These pictures were taken over the weekend (April 20-22, 2007) at the Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este in Cernobbio, Italy.

Going forward, if you want to be taken seriously, please remember the proper spellings:

Maserati GranSport, GranTurismo, Spyder, Coupé

Ferrari F355, 360, F430, Spider
