New styling trends launched on the Pagani Zonda R

I spend a less than healthy amount of time on AutoBlog, Jalopnik, LeftLaneNews and any other website that flows a daily dose of Automotive news. It simply amazes me how fast these guys find stories and give great reporting on breaking models. That said I think some neat features are sometimes missed in an effort to be first to break the big car.

The new Pagani Zonda R captured my imagination not for its serious bad-assness (and yes, this is the Italian kick boxer of bad-assness), but the continuous innovation Pagani pushes in their designs. I mean seriously, who ever thought a race car would be a great place to debut some new styling features? Two of which caught my eye. …..And trust me I’m sure you’ll have these for your car by SEMA 2009.

Rhys Millen Flips a truck for New Years 2009

I’ve met Rhys a few times and I have to say he’s an amazing man. He nearly lost his life jumping trucks but he came back to do the stunt again for 2009. His tenacity is inspirational.

Knight Rider, destroying our Hobby

I really have to wonder how a company as big as NBC can’t find just one person who knows the first thing about cars to act as a consultant on this show. I keep trying to watch it, but it comes across to me as a big Ford infomercial wrapped in a completely wrong understanding of automotive culture. Really sad.

Mercedes-Benz GLK at SEMA

I missed this party, but it looks like it happened at the Wynn hotel. I do remember seeing the orange GLK on the floor though.
