On 27th October 2012, Auckland man Eddie Freeman broke the New Zealand land speed record in a modified Lamborghini Superleggera worth over NZ$ 450 000. He hit a speed of 355.485 km/h at Ohakea Air Base. The previous record of 348.23 km/h was set in 1996 by Owen Evans in a Porsche 911 Turbo. That record almost cost Evans his life when he lost control of the Porsche.
Have you ever seen strange-looking concept cars? Concept cars are made to showcase new designs or new automotive technology, and they may never go into production. Now here’s something I like to call concept shoes – the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera high heels.
Photoshop artist Tim Cooper created these images using his wife’s high heels and photos of the Lamborghini. Tim Cooper 3D is an image creation studio based in the UK. I don’t know if he intended the pun – Super-LEG-gera – but it’s a very suitable name for high heels. Like a concept car, these shoes are just a concept and are not currently in production.
