    A Nice Assortment Of Exotics Take On Mulholland

    Haven't sat though it all, but so far I saw Jay Leno in a blue Bugatti classic, Audi Prototype/Show Car, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 599, Porsche Spyder, Ariel Atom ...

     

     


    Re: A Nice Assortment Of Exotics Take On Mulholland

    God that Atalante is a stunning machine. I really find it frustrating that Leno hasn't built a museum - he certainly has one of the most significant collections in the US, if not the world.

    Thanks for posting!


    Re: A Nice Assortment Of Exotics Take On Mulholland

    That rust colour really suits the McLaren MP4-12C.

    But why did McLaren give the car a model name that makes it sound like a photocopier? :)

    Is this the famous Mullholland drive?

    Over-rated road if there ever was one imo. The 2 roads near it are way more enjoyable and much safer, Laurel Canyon Blvd and Sunset Blvd. are both faster with much better turns.

    The dog on the bike was cool and the car that looks most appropriate for that road was the old porsche speedsters. Too many Idiots crossing the double yellows on that road.

    Yes.

    The turn where the photographer is set-up is a nasty hairpin known for "action." 

    The outside lane is off camber but doesn't look it. It ends up catching a lot of drivers and motorcyclist off guard when they get back on the throttle at the wrong time or when they start their braking and lean in too late.

    Why did police stop the Muciélago?

    The E-Tron Spyder was something special. kiss

    He went over the yellow line... police keep a close eye on it, since the stupidity is high on that road.. drivers really do not need to cross the middle line doing 50km/h through those turns. They do it because the result is many motorcycle deaths and whatnot. Must be a big gong show going down that road

    Ah, I see, thanks for clearing this up, Aaron. Smiley

    Others were doing the same, but they didn't drive a flashy-blue Murciélago. Smiley

    Angeles Crest and Angeles Forest highways are both better than anywhere else I've tried.
