R.I.P. Marco "Super Sic" Simoncelli

I don't know why. I never met the guy, but I have been really depressed this week since the passing of Simoncelli. I watched him since he was in 250's. Maybe it was his great personality and very aggressive riding style. He had the talent and potential to be a future champ. And all of us MotoGP fans will never forget him.

2012 Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Black Series

With the C-Coupe arriving earlier this year and the C63 AMG Coupe close behind, the two-door version of Benz's small sedan is now getting an evil twin. Continuing the DTM-inspired, hardcore performance spirit of past Black Series cars, the Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series Coupe is much more than just a standard AMG car with bigger fenders.

The Black Series edition is powered by a version of Mercedes' now legendary, naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V-8, which pumps out a robust 510 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque in this application. The engine's forged pistons, connecting rods, and lightweight crankshaft are straight out of the SLS AMG. Running the show is a new high-performance engine control unit, which makes possible the claimed 4.2-second dash from zero to 60 mph.

The exhaust system announces the Black Series' 510 horses for the entire world to hear, but it's the AMG Speedshift seven-speed multi-clutch transmission that puts that power to work. The four-mode semi-auto gearbox automatically matches revs on downshifts and can change gears in a claimed 100 milliseconds when in "Sport Plus" or "Manual" modes. A rear-axle differential lock is meant to provide ideal traction for the race track, while the three-phase Electronic Stability Program (ESP) optimizes traction for all other real-world driving situations.

2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Bicolore

Lamborghini has heeded its well-heeled clientele's wishes for an unlimited edition Balboni, creating a new two-wheel-drive bull capable of fulfilling inner drifter fantasies. It is called the Gallardo LP550-2 Bicolore.Gripping its Alcantara-wrapped wheel tightly on Turn 4 at New York's Monticello Motor Club, I quickly learn that in the 542-horse LP550-2, a rendezvous with a corner demands 24 Hours of Le Mans focus. Get it wrong, and you could send the Bicolore with its 398 pound-feet of torque off into the weeds, or worse, the car could be come a crumpled mess and you immobilized on a stretcher.

This love for the edge is one reason why chief Gallardo engineer Riccardo Bettini and his team decreased the V-10's power by 10 cavallinos. It was not given the Superleggera/Performante boost to 562 horses because it is "too nervous with 570 [562, according to SAE] horsepower. Five hundred and fifty horsepower improves manageability," the engineer says. Even the standard coupe's 552 horsepower was deemed too unpleasant in tests.Feed the Gallardo a full serving of throttle upon corner exit to enjoy a blurry rocket-propelled grenade reality and a thunderous "I hate everything" V-10 roar. A sprint to 62 mph takes 3.9 seconds, officials say, while top speed arrives at the 199-mph hash. Taking into account our test of the LP550-2 Balboni (3.4 seconds with six-speed manual), a run to 60 mph should fall in the mid-3-second range

Bettini says the Bicolore bests the Balboni in terms of daily comfort and initial value, but not in rarity or clout. Just a year ago, the entry fee for putting a celebratory Valentino Balboni in your garage was $223,000 at minimum. For the barely different Bicolore, pricing begins at $196,995. What a steal.
