The last ten years has brought us some amazing developments in automotive technology. Bugatti brought us the Veyron, one of the fastest and most advanced cars of it’s kind. Subaru and Mitsubishi brought cheap speed to the masses. And Tata made the Nano, the most affordable car in the world.
Looking forward to the next decade, we are going to have affordable cars that have standard features like lane-assist, wireless internet and voice recognition. The possibilities are endless, but before we look to the future, lets take a quick look at the past.
Here are the Top 10 Fastest Police Car’s of the decade.

I know, I know… last weeks WOTW didn’t make it up on Friday, but that’s because we we wanted to bring you something really special on Monday to brighten up your day… consider this mission accomplished.
It’s hard to find a better example of a Lamborghini than their brand-spanking new Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. When compared to the already lightweight LP-640, a 220 lb. weight loss and 487 ft-lbs. of torque helps the SuperVeloce run 0-62MPH in just 3.2 seconds, but it’s the 670 bulls under the hood that make it scream all the way up to 212 MPH (if you have the small spoiler on the trunk, that is). ‘
The refined, poly-angle design makes it more subtle than the Reventon, but still much more aggressive than the standard Murcielago. The engine cover alone helps transform this beast into an icon as three hexagonal-shaped polymer plates serve as a window into the engine bay, supported by a series of carbon fiber shelves formed specifically to maximize air flow onto the rear spoiler.
I doubt this Murc will be featured at the Lamborghini Academy, so these press photos will have to satisfy your appetite. Enjoy the pics, they should look great on your desktop for the next week or so. :)

Riding the bull at the local bar is not a bad way to spend $5, but what about $5,000? I guess it depends on the bull you’re riding, and if it’s a Gallardo LP 560-4 or a Murcielago LP 640, it’s probably a pretty good deal. This is what the head honchos in Italy thought when they recently announced the training dates for the new Lamborghini Academy. For five grand, you get full accommodations and two days on the track at the Vallelunga or Adria Raceway in Italy. You’ll even get a video highlighting your accomplishments at graduation.
They offer three packages: the Track Academy, the Advance Academy and the Winter Academy. Each option will let you get behind the wheel of a Lambo and be instructed how to under-steer, over-steer, drift and pick your line. The Winter Academy looks particularly fun; nothing like trying to control 640 horsepower in the snow. :)
Press release after the jump.

Found pics of this car while stumbling around the internet. It is a remake of their original, which had its production run from 1966 to 1972. The original was a mid-engined, rear wheel drive 4 Liter V-12 powered monster. Although the V-12 engines of that era were not as potent as they are in this day and age, it still output 345 horsepower, and in a 2100 pound vehicle this thing moved pretty well.
Fast forward to 2006 and you’ll see that Lamborghini has not really tried to improve upon the legendary shape of the original Miura, but they have modernized it quite nicely. In 2006, Lambo had only hinted that they might put it into production, but there’s a chance that we’ll see it in 2009. Gander at the pics below; which do you like more, the original or the new concept?
