News : October 7, 2008
It’s boring to read the news, that’s why National Speed is cutting out all the fat and giving you only the stuff that matters. No politics, sports, or world events — unless its automotive related. We understand that you’re busy people and don’t want to read boring introductory paragraphs (irony!) so let’s cut to the chase and give you all the news that’s fit to print and probably some that’s not…
Road rage gets the better of us all sometimes but Serena Sutton-Smith has taken it to the next level. After purposefully crashing her car into a Fiat, Smith continued pushing the petal to the metal until her engine caught fire and her tires disintegrated. With the car completely engulfed in flames, bystanders tried to remove Serena from the vehicle, who instead of running for her life opted to remain behind the wheel and utter a simple and eloquent, “F*ck off.” That is what I call some serious road rage. Check out Car Domain and the Times Online for more info.
Lamborghini unveiled their latest not-so-well-kept-secret at the Paris Auto Show and its turned out to be none other than a four door sports car. Yawn! While there’s no denying that the Estoque Concept is a slick looking sports car, I was holding out hope for a high performance Lamborghini minivan. At least that would be something interesting after the ridiculous amount of teasing they’ve done with the Estoque.
Chrysler recently held a press event to debut their new selection of electric vehicles. This little engine that couldn’t is certain to turn a few heads, probably towards the nearest toilet to vomit from the sickening cuteness — it makes the VW Bug look like a Hummer.
And that concludes this week’s National Speed quickie. Hope it was as good for you as it was for us. As usual if you have any news to submit leave us a comment or send us an emial and we’ll post it in a future blog. Stay Classy!
