Italian Cars

Italian cars, an intro
For specific models please look at Italian Car models

Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

When I think of Italian cars, I personally think of Fiat. Unfortunately, people regard this as Fix It Again Tony. Note the Fiat 124 Spyder below:

These are some marques that display classic Italian design. With lines, curves, structure, and grace placed into each and every Italian designed car, engineers have captured the marvel that makes Italian automobiles a little more exciting than your average car today. The driver's seat of that  special Italian car becomes sort of a pedestal, like only a favorite car can.   With style and cunning technique  Italians have created many poster cars, especially Lamborghini and Ferrari. A car that makes you think it's not of this world and looks fast, even when it is not moving. Italian automobile designers have many great achievements, especially the design house ItalDesign, known even for non-Italian designs, like the BMW M1, and the original Volkswagen Golf.

Italian car: 1980s Ferrari 308 GTS

Each and every car begins with a  drawing, and a sketch that is then brought to life by the great minds of engineering and design gurus, and with the help of skillful hands the design becomes an assembly built production car. It is then usually fitted with unique rear or mid engines that is shipped over, sent to your local dealership prestigious enough to handle and sell such marques, and placed in your hands to enjoy a car that not only looks great but also performs. Most Italian carmakers started out the same way, which was racing, and there are so many cars to see.

From Le Mans to Formula 1, Italians know how to take on the biggest names in the racing world, and continue to compete for the win. When a production car comes into racing circuits, you're sure to see that it has fared well in reliability and performance and has been famed as an all around top notch vehicle.

When it is the other way around, you see the rarest of rare, a car sold to the general public due to racing regulations stating that there must be a certain amount sold to  before it can be raced, a great example of this in action is  the Maserati MC12.

Racing creates amazing one-off cars that in years will be worth their weight in gold and usually sold to the highest bidder. There are cars made specifically to take on competition, and Italians still produce a car that not only looks stunning, but is also a fierce competitor in any battle. The cars themselves become idolized and renown throughout the world, like the original Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. Italian marques take their knowledge and skill to create a grand touring car that not only performs like a racecar but can be driven on the street. Another excellent example of this would be the innovative and new 2006 Enzo Ferrari.

With more technology placed into this auto than most other cars in the world, it has been made specifically for the track, yet is sold to the public for street use. Mind you there were only 349 made, and Ferrari has a strict policy on who can purchase the car, and only those who have purchased Ferraris in the past can get their hands on this automotive marvel. It has more technologically advanced features than most cars today, including wind tunnel molding, carbon fiber sculpting, and an engine proven to take on top speeds and quick times, this specific supercar is the pride and joy of an engineering master, hence its name.

Italian sports cars are created with one thing in mind, to take what they have learned from the track and place it into your hands, and that is why these supercars make Italy one of the premiere carmakers in the world.

" And I felt something else; it was a sadness that came over me then, after Armand had gone on his way. But this sadness was not painful, nor was it passionate. It was something rich, however, and almost sweet, like the fragrance of the jasmine and the roses that crowded the old courtyard garden which I saw through the iron gates. And this sadness gave a subtle satisfaction and held me a long time in that spot; arid it held me to the city; and it didn't really leave me that night when I went away. " I wonder now what might have come of this sadness, what it might have engendered in me that could have become stronger than itself. But I jump ahead of my story. " Because shortly after that I saw a vampire in New Orleans, a sleek white-faced young man walking alone on the broad sidewalks of St. Charles Avenue in the early hours before dawn. And I was at once convinced that if Lestat still lived here that vampire might know him and might even lead me to him. Of course, the vampire didn't see me. I had long ago learned to spot my own kind in large cities without their having a chance to see me.

The chorus had no need of singing; in one breath in the fire, which was continuous, it made its soundless cheap beats by dr dre song. " All at once Armand moved in a loud rustling of garments, a descent of crackling shadow and light that left him kneeling at my feet, his hands outstretched holding my head, his eyes burning. " `This evil, this beats by dre sale concept, it comes from disappointment, from bitterness! Don't you see? Children of Satan! Children of God! Is this the only question you bring to me, is this the only power that obsesses you, so that you must make us gods and devils yourself when the only power that exists is inside cheap beats by dr dre ourselves? How could you believe in these old fantastical lies, these myths, these emblems of the supernatural?' He snatched the devil from above Claudia's still countenance so swiftly that I couldn't see the gesture, only the demon leering before me and then crackling in the flames. " Something was broken inside me when he said this; something ripped aside, so that a torrent of feeling became one with my muscles in every limb. I was on my feet now, backing away from him. " `Are you mad?' I asked, astonished at my own anger, my own despair.

" Let me say the powerful instinct of a vampire to whom even the slightest change in a human's facial expression is as apparent as a gesture. Lestat had preternatural timing. He rushed me into the carriage and whipped the horses home. `I want to die,' I began to murmur. `This is unbearable. I want to die. You have it in your power to kill me. Let me die.' I refused to look at him, to be spellbound by the sheer beauty of his appearance. He spoke my name to me softly, laughing. As I said, he was determined to have the plantation. " " But would he have let you go? " asked the boy. " Under any circumstances? " " I don't know. Knowing Lestat as I do now, I would say he would have killed me rather than let me go. But this was what I wanted, you see. It didn't matter. No, this was what I thought I wanted. (*#kanesaler04) As soon as we reached the house, I jumped down out of the carriage and walked, a zombie, to the brick stairs where my brother had fallen. The house had been unoccupied for months now, the overseer having his own cottage, and the Louisiana heat and damp were already picking apart the steps. Every crevice was sprouting grass and even small wildflowers.
