Corsia’s car of the day: Lamborghini Diablo

Posted by:

In January 1990, after four years of development, the world met Lamborghini Diablo. Originally the company commissioned Marcello Gandini, to whom we also owe Countach, Miura, and Espada, to work on the design.

Camping in your car:Answering the call to adventure

You will see that not only it doesn’t always rain in Seattle all the time, but it’s increasingly becoming a popular destination for living. Let’s talk about moving from New York ...

One of the greatest things about older vehicles is their style. You could take the least interesting classic car, and chances are it still looks slick. However, some autos go even further. Their looks become iconic with universal recognition. And yet… certain gems still slip through the cracks.

Today, we have an interesting vehicle to talk about – Volvo P1800. On the one hand, its Swedish origins don’t usually hint at supreme design. Not that Volvo makes ugly cars, but their ...
