Familiar faces in rare places! The motorsports industry such as Nascar, is predominantly white, with a small percentage of minorities as players. It’s nice to see a different face who looks suited up for Formula 1. Producer Swizz Beatz not only heats it up in the studio but definitely looks ready to heat it up with Legend Motors. Swizz looks prepared to kill with that Lamborghini yet on a different track!

A couple of days back, we had a look at the Lamborghini Madura concept, and now there’s a more aggressive concept from designer Slavche Tanevsky in the form of the Lamborghini Ankonian concept. According to the designer, the Ankonian takes the design of the Reventon to the next level, even though the concept itself manages a unique expression. The supercar concept has a more aggressive design, and is downsized to account for a more environment-friendly status, though it does not include any hybrid or similar technologies.
The mid-engined supercar has a narrow and rather complex-looking body, with a garnishing of GT proportions. Thin OLEDs embedded between the surfaces function as headlights, and while all those lines may look weird, the Ankonian supposedly makes the best use of it all. The concept was named after a bull type famous for black hair, and since the designer had some help from professional designers at Lamborghini and Audi, the finished model has impressive looks. #ShoutOut automotto
Audi struck a chord with this sexy new offering called the e-tron electric concept car. the e-tron uses four electric motors with a combined output of 313 horsepower (and a mind-boggling 3,319 lb-ft of torque) to move its 3,527-pound mass to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds. More impressive is its rolling acceleration from 37-75 mph in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically-limited to 124 mph. According to Audi, we’ll see a production version in 2012. #ShoutOut Fly Lyf
