Now that thats done….

Now that the main reason is over for the creation of this page (a uni assignment, which I went alright in thank you.) I can now access it and start updating it again.

With the birth of my little boy here soon, I will have a bit more time to post and update from here on end. It will be the same stuff, motoring news and info, there might be a little less ‘in depth’ posts on here but we will see how we go.

Make sure you sub to the truspeedblog twitter also for more up to date info.

Road Test: 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4

When I was younger, my bed room was covered in posters. As styles and fads came and IMG_2925gone, there was one poster that always remained up on the wall. It was the lamborghini countach. The style and pure raw sport car looks was an amazing site to behold.

The 5.2l V10 engine would send shivers down anyones spine, permanently etched into your mind. When you see and hear these cars in the flesh, you will never forget it.

As my passion for the Lamborghini brand grew, more models came out with the advancement of technology they became smarter, better and faster. Que the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. At the time of writing, Lamborghini has announced the new 2013 shape which will hit the road soon, but this 2011 model is the best personally feel in terms of power and style.

Gumball 3000: Day 7 Toronto to New York

 DSCF5705

Day 7 of the rally had us up and heading down to W43rd St and Broadway. The cars were   all starting to warm up north in Toronto for the final leg down to Time Square to cross the finish line and continue on for the final celebrations of the event.

The event started 6 days ago in London, they then headed to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, over the seas to Boston, Quebec City and then Toronto. Today they all wanted to hit that final sprint. the Gumballer’s were keener than ever.

On the subway I was constantly checking blogs, news sites and other sources to make sure nothing had changed over night. All on track for a strong finish so all was looking great.

By 9am we got to Time Square. upon exiting out of the subway I noticed lots of NYPD officers had blocked off a large part of the new pedestrian strip that opens up a large walkway between stores and the Red Steps. This did not look good.

Road Test: 2012 Subaru WRX

IMG_3826

Having owned a Subaru WRX in the past, I have quite an emotional attachment to the brand. The July 00 built ‘classic’ shape in WRC Blue. It was the last of the shape to leave the Fuji Heavy Industries docks in Japan before it set forth on its long journey from Japan to my garage.

The WRX was always a fun car to drive, after the many years of owning it, it was always a surprise and joy to drive. Power was always available when needed and the handling for its age would still out manoeuvre many younger cars on the road.

As the sales manager from the dealership threw me the keys, I knew he was taunting me. the 2012 WRC Blue Imprezza WRX was sitting ready for me to take out on the road. WIth a measly 42KM on the odometer, I knew this was going to be fun.

The stance of the car now has really grown up. The Corrolla-esque shape was quickly shaken off the 2011 style. My first thoughts on that design was “oh Subaru.. what have you done?” The new design comes with a wider style bodykit, larger and wider mag wheels with a darker style finsh, more aggressive style front and rear kit with larger bonnet scope. at the time of this review, the new S-spec gives you access to a new rear wing and front diffuser. This car has really grown up and I am so happy to see it.
