Pop-up headlights are arguably the coolest features to ever grace the world of cars. However, that dream would soon be unravelled as it was deemed costly, aerodynamically inefficient and expensive to fix when they eventually broke.

Think back to the modern era of cars and you’ll recall that there’s not been a year without a concept car to wow the crowds. Whether it’s rolled out from a factory in Italy, England, Japan or America, concept cars have long been the testing bed for cutting-edge technology and design. It’s also this very reason that a lot of these insane concept machines never actually make it onto public roads short of spawning one or two examples.
For the past week I have had the unique pleasure of reviewing the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. It packs 700 horsepower, it costs almost a million dollars, and it scared the bejeezus out of me in the best possible way. But even if I had the money, I wouldn't buy one. Nobody should.

Video: If you're the lucky owner of a stupidly-fast Lamborghini Gallardo, you're going to want to show it off on a drag strip every now and then.

But where these overly luxurious autos can inspire car envy, the Lambo smartphone, called the 88 Tauri, really doesn't.
If it looks like a Lamborghini, if it smells like a Lamborghini...it still might just be a Volvo. Yep, the $2 million supercar you're staring at above was made at home from guys at Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan using a 30 year old Volvo 740. The total money they spent to make a carbon copy of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was 15 grand. Not a bad deal!
The Hall Of Industries is an unassuming building. Just a hangar with a few amenities installed, meant for concerts, presentations and even the odd tech product launch. From the outside, you never would have known that last night, this drab building in the Sydney suburbs played host to millions of dollars worth of luxury and exotic sports cars, as well as the men and women that would vie to become their new owners. It's auction night here, and it's a veritable meat market of automotive perfection.
A British luxury car rental company is looking to make a bigger name for itself by creating what could be the world's first Lamborghini Aventador stretch limo. For the moment, Cars For Stars' bold creation is only in the concept stages, but with a deep-pocketed sponsor, the company is optimistic about making it a reality.
