Drifter by choice, fan of classics...
I have to say that I kind of expect to read a different story that the one Dino put here. I saw many reviews on the car that all said - It's a gorgeous car but it's not really a Lambo because its the first Lambo that doesn't try to kill you. Yes, they all said that the understeering is a bit too much. If Dino said its ok, I guess its gotta be. Not every car has to drift, does it?
Regarding the looks department....well, seeing one in real life, the pictures doesn't do it justice. It's way cooler than seeing pictures. The Huracan is one of the most stunning car I have ever see. Period.

I wish there is a Rocky Auto shop around here, anywhere, in Europe for cars like this to be taken care of by somebody how knows what he is doing....

@speedhunters_dino @greenroadster True, but if I would order one, it will be the 2.3L EcoBoost that I would choose. Imagine the tuning margin here!

M3 fighter? Possibly. But man, this car is ugly! I'm pretty sure that the new Opel Astra or Renault Megane looks way cooler and fresher than this. It is, what, a ten year old design?
Dino, if somebody else did this test drive I didn't believe it. So it's true, the new Mustang is a car that could actually be driven in Europe. Let's hope they sell it at every dealership. The last one was a bit of a truck.

@BT180 Well, Bryn here, he isn't into cars that much (despite what he is saying) and would know a difference between a 180 or 200 or 240 or SX or Silvia, Kouki or Zenki unless he gives Dino a call. Hey Bryn, do you think that you are ready for USA? Skipping Europe? Don't think so man. Again, UK is not Europe. Is UK.

I don't know about you guys, but when I see a Celica XX I totally think that is waaay cooler than any AE86's or any Hakosuka. It's the only car that I would love to drift, besides Soarer JZZ30 an Soarer Z20. Too cool for this world!

Dino, the best X platform is, for me at least, the JZX90. It's old enough to be cool but modern with the 1JZ inside. Also, the Verossa it has to be one of the ugliest car ever, side by side with the SsangYong Rodius and some Russian Lada's. I don't care if it has 1000 bhp, I wouldn't like it a bit.
Regarding Cresta-Chaser-Mark II, well, I cant tell a difference that I know of. Some are more luxury styled and some are basic trimmed ?

Dino, as usual , just great. I wonder what is the street value of a brand new R34... And, all those retired engineers that work on those cars...they got paid? It's like keeping the cars alive and the men's that have built them active? Or is it like giving them an opportunity to do what they loved when they were young, to feel that they still are part of Nissan today?
Very interesting what is happening down there, from a social point of view.
I first fell in love with a car in the 9th grade coming home from high school to a 911 Porsche (that was in 1992). It was red, so small and the wheels were huge I thought at the time. Soon after that, I fell for a S-Class W116, a white one, 350 SEL, with AMG wheels and AMG bonnet (the one with two longitudinally humps like in SLK). Too bad that I cant see that on the road anymore.
1 month ago on The Ripsnorting, Anti-Lagging<br />Speed Industries Impreza
I would take the 911 before a GT-R, but that has nothing to do with the PDK gearbox. Why 911? Because its timeless shape and quality. Why not the PDK? Because maybe I don't want the fastest car out there. I want the fastest car that I really wanna drive myself.
1 month ago on Warp Speed Engaged: The 911 Turbo S
So, if you don't drive the GT-R anymore, how do you commute? Taxi? Public transportation? Or Dino has another car, maybe a kei car to move around? :) And BTW, what happened with that lonely Renault Alpine 310 that you were almost ready to make the owner an offer? Did you change your mind and thought that is it too much?

@Jonathan Moore @Ice Age @greenroadster More charismatic than a three wheeler Morgan? I really don't think so.
1 month ago on Making A Morgan: <br/>If You Could, You Wood Too
The three-wheeler is a stunning car! I really prefer taking one for a spin rather than a LaFerrari.
I agree with Taryn, but the problem is right in front of us and we don't see it.
Why we ALL accept that is OK for a few long legged girls to keep the sunshine away with umbrellas at each and every motorsport event, for the pilots? Why Danica doesn't have male model with umbrella? Because we will be terrified and we all thought that it will be sexist. No? So how women will love motorsport if we ALL accept umbrella girls? Or show queens? We cant and most import, they can't be past that.
It is wrong but we ALL accept that.
Anyway, I really have to say something about that Russian girl with the Soarer drift car: What the hell was that turbo setup? Firs words when I saw that TURBO was the words of Cartman from South Park:

@FunkyChild I really don't like Bryn articles. And is the only one here o Speedhunters that I don't like to hear from. And sometimes Larry Chen when is bullshiting too much about Vaughn JR...
About Bryn, is too shallow about European car culture (and I mean European not English) and I think that is too artistic about something that is more real and down to earth scene. But I guess we need some Britt with "I'm better than you" attitude to drive a Rolls Royce from France to London. I would loved to see Dino drive the same car although ...

@johnbezt I saw it too late. Thanks. Easy on your ego...How many languages do you speak?
Pretty sure that you spelled wrong the Pagani model name - is Pagani Huayra not Pagani Huarya. I guess for an English speaking person is more difficult to spell that latin name wright easily. Still, I wouldn't call you again if I was at Pagani. Please correct that mistake. It sound to me like Porche or Ferarri :)))
I wonder how would drive a NASCAR car with a zero CAMBER. It will spin? Drive really slow? Be unsafe?

That is way cool! The body of a stock Esprit never really make me love the car, but now, after 30 years sitting this low .... well, you could never go wrong. So so cool.
Regarding the engine I don't know if I like it or not but I love the fact that somebody is moving something in supercar swaping department. It seams that swaping an engine is still something you do with a cheap car or race car and nobody is touching Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus or McLaren. So, yeah, sounds great.

You lived a long and beautiful life, you are a great man, a great racer, a champion.
I really want to ask you this:
1.What you would prefer right now? To make a donut at a stop light somewhere in New York in a BMW 7 Series in front of a shocked crowd or take a relaxed drive on a country road in a Renault Espace in Southern France?
2.When you think at your past racing rivals, in your mind, it was somebody that you thought that was faster, better, sharper, luckier than you? I'm looking for a rival that nobody today remembers but you had kept him alive inside you.
3.If tomorrow you will wake up and find that you are 25 years again....what you will make of your life? You would go race again? Formula 1? 24 Heurs Le Mans? Drifting? Rally? Or you'll leave everybody wonder and drove of and live a quite life doing....what?
4.After all this years, what do you think that cars, in generally, lost? The spirit? The human touch? Or are they way better and we should never feel sorrow for the past?
All the best from Romania.
