It has happened with Michael Jordan, it has happened with Brett Favre, and it has happened even with Jay-Z. So perhaps it is no surprise that another superstar icon has announced he is coming out of retirement. Michael Schumacher is coming back to F1, but not to Ferrari. The new Mercedes-Brawn F1 team made the official announcement December 23, 2009 that the Seven Time World Champion will be driving for them in 2010 along with Nico Rosberg.

Lamborghini Ankonian Concept Photos


Lamborghini Ankonian Concept

Wowza! Last week was the week of multi Lamborghini Concepts matched by a pretty cool looking one-off Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta! First we saw the Lamborghini Toro Concept, then the Lamborghini Madura and now the Lamborghini Ankonian Concept! The Ankonian is by far my favorite even if it’s only a outrageously murdered out looking Lamborghini Concept (for now). I definitely think it’s far sexier than the Lamborghini Reventon.

Lamborghini Toro Concept Photos


Lamborghini Toro Concept

The Lamborghini Toro LA690-4 is a modern concept interpretation of the 1960 Lamborghini Espada aimed to compete against the Aston Martin One 77 and the newly minted Lexus LFA.

The designer Amadou Ndiaye stated that the LA 690-4 designation stands for “Longitudinale Anteriore” which translates to “Front Longitudinal” in English, while “690” refers to the V12 engine’s fictional output and ‘4’ to the car’s all-wheel drive system. Similar nomenclature is used with the Lamborghini Murcielago LP series which indicates the engine’s Longitudinale Posteriore, or “Rear Longitudinal” position and orientation within the current LP lineup of Lamborghini’s.
