Buyer of stolen Lamborghini Espada attempts to claim ownership in court

Cheryl Hall thought her late husband's prized Lamborghini Espada was still in the shed of their country New South Wales property, but it had been stolen and advertised at a ridiculously low price months before she even noticed it was missing. In a bizarre twist, the buyer of the stolen Lamborghini attempted to appeal the case in the NSW Supreme Court, claiming he was now the rightful owner, despite the fact he had paid a mere $32,500 for the vehicle...

Guy hand-makes functional miniature V10 engine

Have you ever found yourself obsessing over making a miniature version of something? Even as an adult, I never quite grew out of the remote-control-car phase, and still have a collection of RC cars, boats and helicopters that probably cost the same as a "sane person's" daily driver...

Ultra-rare Lamborghini LM002 sells for $390,000

The Lamborghini LM002 was the most outrageous, fastest, and meanest four-wheel drive on the planet between 1986 and 1992. The latest to sell, courtesy of RM Sotheby's, has a price on-par with what you'd pay for a current Urus. Using history as a guide, we were expecting the car to sell for around US$500,000 ($650,000)...

How does a turbocharger work?

We all know that turbos make cars go faster, but how exactly is this achieved? Think of your car's engine a bit like a pump. On the intake stroke the engine draws air in. This air is mixed with fuel and compressed as the piston rises, a spark ignites the mixture and forces the piston down...
