Engine start-stop buttons used to be a novelty, but now they’re found in most vehicles on the market.
While most car ignitions are pretty standard and mundane, some automakers go out of their way to make them unique and stand out. Here are some of the most unique engine start buttons we’ve seen over the years.
When you’re talking about Italian exotics, the term “affordable” is relative—but considering the prices commanded by new Lamborghinis, there are some good deals to be found. Here are five affordable Lamborghinis; some of which are only affordable if you’ve already got a supercar-sized bank account.
The Gallardo played second fiddle to Lambo’s larger and more expensive cars. Over its decade-long production run (2003-2013) it became the brand’s best-selling model, with over 14,000 built. No surprise that it’s a bargain on the used market: There are plenty of Gallardos with asking prices under $100,000. If you want to be seen, go for the drop-top Gallardo Spyder, which commands around $10,000 more.
The Murciélago is the previous version of the “big” Lambo, having been replaced by the Avendator (though the two were built side-by-side between 2011 and 2013). With a V12 engine under the hatch, the Murciélago appeals more to purists than the V10-powered Gallardo, and yet prices aren’t too much higher: You’ll find several cars trading in the $130,000 to $150,000 range, though if you want one of the LP640 models, plan to spend closer to $200k.
When you consider they cost roughly twice that when new, this really is a steal.
That’s the age, more or less, of the automotive industry and naturally, its history is steep. Thousands of makes and models have come and gone over the decades, but only a few have really revolutionized the way auto manufacturers do business.
These are the vehicles that made everyone sit up and take notice. The ones that reshaped the North American automotive landscape.
Narrowing the field down to just one vehicle per decade was not easy. We focused on cars, trucks and SUVs that changed the industry specifically in North America, although that doesn’t mean it had to specifically be a North American vehicle. So, here are the 14 vehicles that changed the world and a few honorable mentions as well.
