Now the real question: will there be a S8?
Rumor has it there will be another S8 – powered by a Gallardo V10 twin turbo.

S please…

Texas Mile – March 2010

Posted in cars with tags , , , , , , on April 4, 2010 by AutoSpotters

We were fortunate enough to be given media passes to the March 2010 Texas Mile.

The Texas Mile is a semi-annual event held in Goliad, TX – population 2017, and shrinking undoubtedly, at Goliad Air Park. The airport has two 8,000 foot runways, one of which is like the city – decaying and inactive.  The other runway gets closed down for 6 days a year – 3 days in March and 3 days in October – for the Texas Mile.

The Texas Mile is a one mile drag strip to find out how fast you can push your vehicle in a standing one mile.

If you are a car nut, speed nut or just enjoy sunburns, then the Texas Mile is where you should be!  Where else will you see a turbo with nitrous Suzuki Hayabusa going 200mph while fighting a 15mph cross wind, looking for a top speed of 260mph?  Where else will you see a Ford GT go 249mph and be disappointed it was not 250mph?  Where else will you see a Lamborghini Gallardo with a parachute?

Go to their website to find out more info on participating.  http://www.texasmile.net

Thanks Texas Mile and crew.  We will be back in October.
