I film the all-new, limited edition Panoz Abruzzi Spirit Of Le Mans at it's North American debut during the 2010 Petit Le Mans endurance race at Road Atlanta. Besides possibly being the most evil-looking production car ever, it is also a technological marvel. I am pleased to present the first full video of this car on youtube.
The Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans consists of only 81 examples, which in 2013 represents the number of 24 Hours of Le Mans races since the event's inception in 1923. All of the Spirit of Le Mans editions will be sold in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The Corvette ZR1's V8 engine is used to produce over 600 hp in the Abruzzi, which, like every other Panoz, is handbuilt in Hoschton, Georgia. In addition to the mammoth power and torque from the LS9, the car is super light and super strong, being the first road car built with the new REAMS material, which is stronger and lighter than carbon fiber. I could go on about all of the incredible details incorporated into this car, but I'll let the car speak for itself. :) Enjoy!
The song is Genesis by Justice.
Panoz Esperante GT1
I film another one of Panoz's insane creations: the Esperante GT1.
Apparently only 2 of these monstrous machines exist, and this example is
finished in an awesome chameleon paint job. Unfortunately I didn't get any
shots of the GTR-1 race car behind it, but maybe next year. ;) Filmed at
the 2010 Petit Le Mans racing weekend at Road Atlanta...
Matte Black Lexus LF-A
I film an absolutely mind-boggling matte black Lexus LF-A at the 2010
Atlanta international Auto Show. This is definitely one of the most
stunning cars I have ever had the opportunity to see!

A couple of encounters on two different days of the same R8 V8, once on
surface streets and once again on the highway.
You can get a taste of the V8's sound as the driver downshifts and hits the

Sorry for the short and quality of video. The car was only on the track
for about 10 laps. After I realized it was of the track I went to the
paddock to get pictures of it but they already packed it away.
Sooo....enjoy what I got.

Le Mans 2012 - Nissan Deltawing debuts at Le Mans
Nissan has released a video of the test at Le Mans. This will be the only
chance for entrants to this year's Le Mans 24 Hours to set their cars up
for the big race on June 16/17.
For Nissan, the test represented the Company's biggest commitment to the
famous French endurance race to date. Nissan will power a quarter of the
entire Le Mans 24 Hours field this year, with particular dominance in the
LMP2 class, in which 13 out of 20 cars will use Nissan engines. The star of
the show was the radical Nissan DeltaWing which aims to complete the
legendary endurance race using half the fuel and half the number of tyres
of its fellow Le Mans entrants. All of Nissan's key cars performed
admirably, with a top 20 place for 2011 LMP2 champion team, Greaves
Motorsport, and a trouble-free day of running for the experimental Nissan

2013 Lamborghini Aventador Test Drive & Exotic Car Video Review
Wow is about the only word that comes to mind when you view the 2013
Lamborghini Aventador for the first time. Press the throttle and this
exotic car warps your mind. This sexy beast is the rightful heir to the
Lambo throne and replaces the Murcielago as the ubber raging bull. With any
new Lamborghini release, the world becomes enamored and awestruck, but this
all-wheel drive beast has really upped the exotic car game and left its
competitors in the dust. So what's it cost to drive the pinnacle of
automotive engineering? Try a cool $400k on for size!
Check out all the specs on the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador
50 years ago a man named Ferruccio who owned a successful tractor company
wanted to buy a sports car so he bought a Ferrari. He liked the car but had
a few suggestions to make it better. When Enzo Ferrari snubbed Ferruccio
the battle for exotic car supremacy was born. Now on the 50th anniversary
of Lamborghini, we have this, the greatest Lamborghini's of all time: the
There is a new king at the top of the Lamborghini family tree. The
Murcielago has been loved for many years and the Aventador has stepped up
to take its place. This is the biggest and baddest Lambo you can buy. The
car reviewed here in the test drive video sports a $14,000 matte paint job
that looks amazing. Up front the headlights are gorgeous with the unique
LED daytime running light "Y" style. Down the side you notice the massive
wheels with the huge carbon-ceramic brakes and bright orange calipers. The
car is very low measuring only 44 inches tall. The scissor doors look
fantastic and are a Lamborghini trade mark. Out back the engine is open
only covered by a transparent bonnet allowing you to see the heart of this
beast. The wicked looking tail lamps mimic the pattern seen on the
headlights. The whole look is aggressive supercar super amazing!
Under the bonnet is a 6.5 liter V-12 engine that produces 691 horsepower and 508 lb-ft. of
torque. This rocket ship blast from 0-60 MPH in 2.9 seconds! Keep your foot
planted and the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador has a top speed of 207 MPH. The
ISR gearbox is a 7-speed transmission that shifts in milliseconds. Another
innovation on the Aventador is the push-rod style suspension. This setup is
more commonly seen in Formula-1 race cars.
The interior on the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador is inspired by a fighter jet
cockpit. The steering wheel feels great in your hands; the center stack is
perfectly angled to allow the driver to monitor climate, navigation, and
audio. The gauges are not analog rather a TFT Screen.
Driving the Aventador is the closest thing to flying a fighter jet. The
acceleration is wild and the engine is ferocious making lots of noise since
its mounted right behind the cabin. Besides the power, this exotic car
handles fantastically. There are 3 different drive modes on the Aventador.
Strada is the normal mode where traction control is at its fullest, the Exhaust note is muted a bit, and the
shifts are easier. Sport mode relaxes the traction control and shifts get a
little quicker. For the real Lamborghini experience, pop the car into Corsa
mode and the car go on full tilt with lightning fast shifts.
At over $400k this car is only for the rich. But they are getting an
amazing machine that is wild, brash, in your face, and aggressive. It's
everything you would want from a Lamborghini Supercar! There is no better
way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini than by driving the

Panoz Esperante--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. A first drive
for Chris in the Panoz Esperante. Presented by D&M Motorsports, hosted by
Our intentions were good. This would be the first magazine to pit two
similarly priced, low-volume, Ford SVT Mustang Cobra-powered sports cars
from a pair of young and eager companies in a breathtaking shootout.
The fatal flaw was the timing. Qvale Modena is already shipping Mangustas
to customers. The company diverted one for this test and certified that it
was fairly representative of that which citizens of the land may purchase.
On the other hand, Panoz Auto Development Company in Hoschton, Georgia, is
still developing its Esperante. It did produce a prototype with Irish-green
paint and oatmeal leather for testing, but the car was clearly yanked out
of the oven while still a little squishy.
Regular production of the aluminum body panels had yet to begin, the
interior is still undergoing minor revisions, and raising the unperfected
convertible top occupied two engineers with tools for 20 minutes. In short,
the Esperante's test numbers have too many asterisks to be used in an
honest comparison with the Mangusta.
Not to say that the time spent with the Esperante was a complete waste. The
Panoz shows promise of maturing into a shapely, competent roadster, and
Danny Panoz promises the first buyers will be able to unload their extra
$81,961 on one by this fall, once he obtains tops and bodies for the 100 or
so completed chassis sitting in his factory.
That's just a few thousand clams shy of the Mangusta's price, but
philosophically, the Esperante is a completely different animal. Panoz
splices in far more Mustang
DNA, including the steering rack, the ABS-equipped brakes (not available on
the Mangusta), the independent rear suspension (IRS) module, and parts of
the floorpan and fire wall. After modifications, those bits bolt to a space
frame of interlocking aluminum extrusions that form the main structural
Oddly enough, despite the high Mustang content, the Esperante feels
less like a Mustang than
the Qvale does. Panoz is aiming for a more classic sports-car experience
and succeeds in part with a lower driving position, a compact three-spoke
steering wheel that neatly conceals its airbag, and two pontoon fenders
that bracket the view out the windshield.
The crisply tuned Panoz also behaves lighter on its feet. It turns in with
Ginsu sharpness and bites the pavement hard in corners. But the Esperante
demands a smooth hand near the limit because the rear end is easy to
fluster and difficult to collect after it breaks loose.
Blame may lie with the Cobra's IRS module. Ford engineers designed it first
and foremost to bolt directly to the Mustang's live-axle pickup points,
sacrificing weight and performance for packaging convenience. Panoz adds
only a cantilevered coil-on-shock assembly to make it work in the
Esperante's space frame. Perhaps more tweaking will get the Panoz and Ford
ends working in better harmony.
Throttle response is lustier in the Panoz, and it trounces the Mustang Cobra and the Mangusta in
acceleration and braking. An oppressively boomy, low-restriction Exhaust may have helped contribute to the
scorching drag-strip times. Danny says they are still tinkering with
Since it last appeared on these pages (January 1999), the Esperante has
experienced some noteworthy revisions. "Nobody liked the pursed lips,"
admits Danny, so Panoz widened the tiny oval mouth that gave the first
Esperante a face out of The X-Files. Inside, the company inched the shift
knob closer to the driver by installing a remote shift linkage. It also
repositioned the center-mounted gauges so that their binnacle is flat to
the panel a la BMW Z8. Fine, except that they are even harder to read
quickly and the reflection of the sky washes out the dials.
The Panoz may need to bake some more, but with Qvale out booking sales, the
temperature should be hotter than ever.
