5 Reasons Why Supercars Help You Live Life To The Fullest

Life is short so get a supercar…if it’s the last thing you do.

Cliches come in many shapes and sizes. “Life is too short to live with regrets.” “Life is too short to leave dreams unfulfilled.” “Life is too shot to not grab it by the horns (or steering wheel) and ride the shit out of it.” Annoying cliches posted by your overly optimistic Facebook friend or not, these things are true. That’s the reason insane lovers of speed strapped themselves into metal coffins many years ago to try and figure out how to go fast. These risky actions were not done in vain because they brought us the supercar. Here are some justifications to their lunacy.

Before bills take precedence in life, kids get free reign on their gifts of imagination. Luckily this young Thai designer has imagination in abundance because it led him to build one of the most badass Koenigseggs we have ever seen. Christian Von Koenigsegg should look into opening a new spot on his design team because this car is teaming with slick aggression. The car is simply wicked, no wonder it's named Utagera, which means “terminate” in Swedish. The car gets a hypothetical 1,000 horsepower from a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8, so passengers can wet their pants twice, once when they see it and another time when they experience the aggressive acceleration.

Most people believe that you can't love a car like a person, but this Ferrari Testarossa owner shows us otherwise. He bought a destroyed Testarossa's remains for $16,526 and got to work. What resulted was a fully restored 4.9-liter V12 beast. The owner aptly named it “My Red Madness” to show just how crazy love can make a person.

Patent offices have a way of spilling the beans about automaker’s plans for the future. That’s why when Lamborghini submitted the name “Egoista” for copyright, gearheads collectively did a double take. This is because Lamborghini has already built a one-off Egoista. If it starts building more, chaos will doubtlessly ensue.

Many carmakers nowadays are doing everything they can to make sure their cars and the polar ice caps can coexist in acceptable temperatures, but some manufacturers are actively trying to resist. This is exactly what independent builder Joe Harmon did when he used a sizable portion of the forest to build this fully wooden supercar for a university project. Harmon apparently took the term “going back to your roots” a bit too seriously because after all, the first cars were built from dead trees. Try not to get a woody when you realize that there is a 7.0-liter V8 pushing 600 horsepower under the splinter-laden hood.

The buyer of this wrecked Lamborghini Aventador must have read, “75% off” in the for sale listing. He managed to spend $100,000 on a car that usually goes for $400,000. For that he got an Aventador in dire need of love. The injured Lambo is in good hands now because the new owner plans to restore it back to all of its 6.5-liter V12 glory.
