This is the earliest and rarest model of Lamborghini’s iconic Countach. This particular vehicle is up for auction right now over at RMSotheby’s, and it’s expected to fetch over $1 million. This magnificent Lamborghini has been painstakingly restored to all of its original specifications before it won 2nd place at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Eleganc. You can find more pictures of this badass Lambo and details about the auction by following that link below.
This is a book I’m particularly excited to share with you all because 1) the author Roben Farzad is one of my favorite follows on Twitter and 2) the book touches on a unique history of my home state of Florida. I plan on doing a full review of this book in the very near future but I wanted to introduce you all to ‘Hotel Scarface‘ today.
This books captures a period of Miami’s history that was unlike any other. A time when waves of Cuban immigrants were pouring in alongside massive shipments of cocaine. The city was exploding with cash, culture, and money. The book details the rise and fall of cocaine in Miami, and I’m going to go ahead and say this is a must-read for anyone that’s fascinated by how a culture can shift overnight when something like cocaine is introduced by the barrel. This is the real story of Miami’s cocaine era, and it’s more fascinating than I can begin to explain in a tiny blurb. Like I said, I’m going to do a full review in the near future but I wanted you bros to see this book and pick up your copy today (follow that link below).
