Top Gear Twist: Porsche Panamera vs. the Postal Service


Lets face it, sometimes the postal service leaves a little to be desired.  They may push through rain, sleet and snow, but I know I’ve waited a couple of weeks for a letter that should have taken 3-4 days.  Sometimes it seems like I could have driven my my aunt’s house and delivered the letter by hand.  Well that’s what Top Gear set out to do in their latest race; they took a Porsche Panamera and pitted it against a postage stamp, watch the videos to find out who wins.

Lamborghini Academy Redefines Bull Riding


Lamborghini Academy - Gallardo in the Snow

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.  :)
