DMC Could Be Back From the Past
DeLorean Motor Company could be back to the future, or into the past, or something like that, and they're showing some interest in the Pontiac Solstice GXP, Lexus may be set for a debut of the LF-A at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, McLaren is rumored to be working on a Spider variant of the new MP4-12C, and Shakedown with Leo Parente and the girls of MotoGP.
DMC Could Be Back From the Past
Always fresh everyday, you're watching Fast Lane Daily.
Derek DeAngelis: Great Scott! The Solstice goes back to the future. How was that?
Not bad. Marty! Alright, that’s enough.
It seems that DeLorean sees potential with one of Pontiac’s All
Stars. Also, Lexus shares news on what else is in store for us at
Tokyo. The GTR quite literally takes the guy straight to the bank
and McLaren hits our internet rumor mill for the potential Spider
version of the MP4-12C.
All that — and of course, Leo talks motor sports news in this
week’s shakedown. Hi, everybody how you doing? I'm Derek D.,
you're checking out Fast Lane Daily on a Thursday. It’s Thursday!
Although, we know that Pontiac Solstice and the Saturn Sky are
both dead as a door nail, there could be a revival from someone
you at least expect. DeLorean Motor Company is said to have
purchased a Pontiac Solstice GXP for evaluation purposes and is
looking into bringing back the platform.
The VP of DMC James Espey said, JZD John Zachary DeLorean
always said that the best memories of his automotive career where
at Pontiac. In addition, DMC tease that they are excited about
possibly putting several hundred people back to work at the
Wilmington, Delaware factory coincidentally where I picked up
my Solstice GXP last spring, as you can see right here.
All I can say is my flux capacitor is fluxing, if you know what I
mean. But if you're looking for a car that can go double the
required 88 miles per hour for time travel, Lexus has got some
good news for you. Well, it’s not really news but according to the
Japanese car maker, they’ve got a two-door performance car that
will be revealed at the 2009 Tokyo motor show. We wonder what
that could be. Oh, that’s right, that little bastard that’s been teasing
us since spy shots and racist for the past 2 years, the Lexus LFA.
Finally, we can get to see it.
It’s been reported, that Toyota CEO has been to the Nurburgring
recently to test the car during its final shakedown. All rumors
suggest that Lexus has finalized the 4.8 liter V10 engine with 550
horsepower for the production version with the reported top speed
of 218 per miles per hour.
Pricing has been rumored to be in a range of $225,000 to
$300,000. Geez, at that price, the car should give me a frigging—
What happened? It’s a lot of money. Alright, in — I'll put a dollar
in the swear jar, sorry. Let’s move on.
Okay, look people. Yes, the Nissan GTR has a ton of gadgetry to
keep safely on the road even when you try to get sideways but it
isn't the magic mobile. As this one dude in Vancouver found out
yesterday while he was going a little too fast and unwillingly
parked his Nissan GTR into the VanCity Credit Union. As you
could see here, it’s pretty much lodge in between two ATM’s. It
gives new meaning to the phrase, “Dude, I got to hit the ATM.”
The guy driving is lucky to be alive. But since he is alive, he better
get all the money out of those ATMs as he can because there is
extensive damage to the building, the GTR and his, “Hey look at
me. I'm driving a GTR.” ego. That’s funny guys. Rachael?
And in the Internet Rumor a new McLaren could be bringing a
stripper to the club, very nice. Hits from various sources have
pointed that some rumors surrounding a Spider version of the new
MP4-12C. As we recently learned, production may begin shortly
with sales supposedly coming to the US.
The MP4-12C is planning to directly compete with the Ferrari
F430 and Lamborghini Gallardo. And after some filings in the UK
from last February, this just solidifies the possibility of it
happening. We’ll know more when the rumor ball is “dre-zapped”.
That means “dropped” in Snoop Dogg language in case you're
Next up, Leo the suit actually wearing a suit this week in our motor
sports recap segment shakedown. And guess what? He goes off the
deep end and just starts talking about chicks. It’s one of those -
Alright. I’ll put another dollar. Geez, here.
Male: Where’s the jar?
Derek DeAngelis: Here. Take—
Leo: I have a business meeting right after we shoot so you get the full
suit look today.
This is the championship’s edition of Shakedown as the racing
seasons wind down. We could also call it the driver’s balls edition
as you’ll see in here. WRC.
Sebastian Loeb mans up one account, wins in Spain and closes the
championship gap to only one point going to the last rally. So
Duran had the course well in hand, pull the mirror suite and wins
the manufacture’s title from Ford.
By the way, you know why I like the WRC? Their test days are
In MotoGP at Estoril, Arnel Lorenzo goes all ground control to
major tom with a spaceman theme on his helmet and one a small
race win, one giant leap in the championship statement cutting
Rossi’s point lead from 30 to 18 with three races left. And his
moonwalk flag planting win celebration was stellar, interstellar,
none of that.
Casey Stoner return with a Q3 and a P2 proved his health issues —
well, not for lack of stones. That's the ball style. Rossi finished 4th.
And hold that thought in your head because in Formula1 Vettel
marked his turf dominant Japan win to keep the championship
fight live. How do you say in German, I'm not dead yet? Rubin has
again beat Jenson Button by one spot and one point. And Button’s
response to all this? “It’s nice to pick up one point and finish just
behind Rubens.” What?
Look, I know I said in the last Shakedown, I wanted Buttons to
step to the championship was just stay close to Rubens to protect
the point’s gap. But you don’t say you're happy about that. Let me
compare Jemson and his 8th place satisfaction to the MotoGP god,
Valentino Rossi who was shattered to finish 4th.
To me Button is mutton or whatever you call a sheep with no balls.
Look, I know they only have two races to go. Button only needs
four points to finish off Vettel, seven points the end hope for
Rubens. But I still I want my champions to be bold not the second
coming of Jacques Villeneuve and not Kimi’s version of
You know, in the last state at races, the post diffuser season I call
it, Jensen has been outscored by Vettel, Rubens, Kimi and
Hamilton in that order. Webber ties him with 24 points and
Webber is far from championship caliber.
Look, I want my champions to want to win with passion and
Hey. I want Brett Favre to retire from American football and drive
for brawn. But seems that one won’t happen since Jensen won’t
change and seems the drivers and king titles are all but brawn
And since Derek's soap opera-novellas can handle all the
upcoming drama of Kimi the McLaren, McLaren to its own
engines, Mercedes to brawn as the work’s team putting German
Rosberg in the car, Toyota to stay or go and if they stay to put
Rubens and Jensen to those cars and more.
Since all that, let’s focus on the championship battle that maybe we
shouldn’t have been all along.
Who’s the hottest F1 driver’s girlfriend, wife or significant other at
the moment? And the nominees are Mrs. Rubens Barrichello,
Sylvana. Mrs. Kimi Raikkonen and former Miss Scandinavian,
Jenni Dahlman. Fernando Alonzo’s girlfriend and pop star Raquel
Del Rosario, Sebastian Vettel’s girlfriend, Hanna Prater, Lewis
Hamilton and Nicole “Pussycat Doll” Scherzinger, Timo Glock’s
German reality TV stars Isabell Reis, and Jenson Button’s Jessica
Michibata, plus Mitchy’s sister Angelica.
Polls are open, let the voting begin because frankly, after all the
bent tech rules, flat out cheating, politics and general all around
BS, this maybe where to find F1 fun and balls. And I leave with
you my writing candidates, the great girls of MotoGP.
Derek DeAngelis: Well, good job Leo. You really nailed all those chicks’ names. You
know, formula double D is one of my favorite racing series,
Well, that’s about for Fast Lane Daily today, I'm Derek D.
Remember, Facebook.com/fastlanedaily. We’re also on twitter,
twitter.com/fastlanedaily, YouTube and you know the rest.
Alright, tune in tomorrow. We’ll shoot the — Oh, that’s right — I
mean, alright cut.
Next stop Leo the suit actually wearing his suit this week in the
motor sport segment Shakedown, did you know that? And guess
who he’s talking about.
Female: Hot chicks?
Derek DeAngelis: Hot chicks! It’s just one of those “what” days. Alright.
Male: Swear jar.
Derek DeAngelis: Yeah, I’ll pay up.
