Supercar rally has been inaugurated in the Holy Land.
Spanning just 250 miles from north to south, completing a 3000-mile road trip in Israel was never going to be easy. While the bona fide event will celebrate its 15th anniversary next month, with celebrities including David Hasselhoff, Jon Olsson, Tony Hawk, Xzibit and Kimi Raikkonen heading from Copenhagen to Monaco, in Israel the so-called "Israball" was a decidedly less glamorous affair. There was, however, a decent collection of supercars that took to the coastal road from Tel Aviv to just south of Lebanon in the Upper Galilee.
Amongst the 70-strong convoy were a Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche 911 GT3, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Honda S2000, Nissan GT-R, BMW 1M Coupe, Mitsubishi Evo, and a classic Corvette Stingray. However the star of the show was a beautifully maintained 1983 Lamborghini Countach. The car-loving community is clearly growing in the tiny Mediterranean enclave. Locals are planning more events like this in the future, with a Formula One demo event planned for Jerusalem this summer.
