Kimi Raikkonen to join Ford WRC and race NASCAR? WTF

So rumor's have it that the former World Drivers Champion and Ferrari Driver is in the works of switching his WRC career to Ford after spending a year with Citreon.

This news doth come as a surprise as last I checked, Raikkonen was considering a return to Ferrari Formula One. If this switch to Ford is true, that'll be the last nail in the coffin for Ferrari.

Furthermore: "Funding for the project is coming especially from the United States, and Räikkönen might get an opportunity to also race in a few Nascar events in North America," claims Ilta-Sanomat.

2011 Lamborghini LP700-4 specs leaked.

There is it, finally after the months of speculation and guesswork, a new "confidential" dealer ordering guide shows us what the new flagship of the raging bull might have for ball, and by the looks of it, they're big. really big.

The Murcielago replacement, the LP700-4, or as Aventador or Jota, whatever you want to call it, it's got some impressive specs.

Powered by a  brand new 6.5-liter V12 with 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque at the tip of your foot, and  put to the ground with a fantastic all-wheel drive system. Lamborghini's new seven-speed independent shifting rod (ISR) transmission is fitted with lighting fast shift times of just 50 milliseconds (to see all this drivetrain magic in business click here). All of that is going to have to push around a dry weight of only 3,472 pounds, which means 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds. Damn son.

Also they've got new colors oh-la-la.
