IMSA Gallardo LP560-4 GTV Photos


IMSA Gallardo LP560-4 GTV

Here are some GREAT shots of the IMSA tuned Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4. It’s officially called the IMSA GTV kit. We have previously seen examples of the GTV kit on the last generation Gallardo as well, most notably on the Verde Ithaca IMSA Gallardo owned by Zahir Rana of ZR Auto based in Calgary. Perfection is not to far off with this package when comparing it to many other tuning houses and aftermarket body kits for Lamborghini. Checkout what IMSA had to say about the design of this kit below.

Koenigsegg CCX New York Crash Photo


Koenigsegg ccx crash

It appears that the Koenigsegg CCX that I photographed at this years SuperCar Weekend 2009 was recently involved in a crash in New York.

The front end (and possibly the frame) of this 2008 Koenigsegg CCX, was extremely damaged when a dealer decided to take his customers car out for a test spin (ha, no pun intended). Maybe his secretary was giving him a ****job which might have caused him to swerved and crash into a guardrail and somehow damaged a 2009 Porsche GT2… or maybe he was just racing.

Although there still remains one last race on the 2009 Formula 1 Schedule the Constructors Championship and most importantly the DRIVER champion have already been crowned. Jenson Button and his team Brawn GP are the ultimate winners this year. It was quite an interesting year which saw Button win the first 6 of 7 races to only fizzle out for the remaining several races and barely hold on to his title.
