One of the things we have always prided ourselves here at BangShift on is the fact that we’ve never pigeonholed ourselves into one thing. We’ve always been very honest in the fact that stuff that is fast, unique, and interesting will always be welcome on the pages of this website. Modern super cars from around the globe certainly fit the fast, unique, and interesting criteria and Ken Lingenfelter has a section of his collection devoted to these types of cars. We don’t care who you are, when you walk into a room to see a Veyron flanked by a couple of Lamborghinis, a Saleen S7, a Shelby Series One, a Vector, Ferraris, and other exotics, it’ll make you take a deep breath and mutter a couple of adult themed words under your breath. Yes, we know you can get your hands on 1,000hp car for less than a million bucks like the Bugatti costs. Yes, we know you can build something in your garage that’ll out corner the cool Ferrari 308 in this gallery, but let’s be honest. These are incredible machines both for their performance and for their looks.
While Craig and Nutting were shooting detail photos and features (that we’ll be running periodically) I was wandering the floor, taking a broader look at the collection. I saved the front area of the building where all of the modern cars are housed for last because I wanted to spend some quality time, up close and personal with these cars. As you’ll see I kind of fixated on a couple of them like the Vector (which Ken admitted was not a great car, but for the same reasons we were attracted to it, he was) and the Alfa Romeo which I think is one of the most beautiful cars produced in the last 50 years. This coming from a guy who loves tractors, so take it as you will.
As we have told you before, the goal of Ken’s collection is to keep it filled with cars he finds interesting. That means old cars he finds interesting (more of those coming soon) and modern stuff he finds interesting as well. You don’t have to be a exotic car fan boy to appreciate what you’ll see in the photos when you hit the link. You just have to love cars and the wildly different ways that people have come to express and define themselves through them.
