La dolce vita -- Thanks to These Economic Times, TCC's Italian travel budget has been zeroed out for 2009, which means we totally missed the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza in Cernobbio. It's just as well, though, 'cause the sight of those four one-off Bugattis--the Centenaire Edition Veyrons, celebrating Bugatti's 100th anniversary--would have given us agita. [WorldCarFans]

Crosstown rumble -- Remember when the Yankees chose Audi as their official luxury car and Ford as their official truck and SUV brand and Toyota as...um, something? Well, the Mets just tapped Lincoln. Oh, it's on, baby. It's on. [Ford]

Tune up or tune down? -- If we were fortunate enough to own a Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG, the last thing on our minds would be upping the performance. ASMA Designs' customer base, however, is not so complacent when it comes to boost. Or taste. [Edmunds]

We'd rather it stay on the interweb -- Porsche Panamera fans can now build customized versions online. Detractors, on the other hand, can continue wishing that Celia Cruz was still around to sing the car's jingle (to the tune of "Guantanamera", natch). Everyone's a winner. [MotorAuthority]

Behind the scenes -- Yesterday, we mentioned that Morgan was releasing the Aero SuperSports model to celebrate the company's 100-year anniversary. (Is everyone having a birthday?) Of course that's awesome, but not quite as awesome as seeing how Morgan's cars are made. (Hint: they're made by hand, using lots of wood. Yeah, we went there.) And in case you missed the documentary about the company, here's a wee trailer to get you motivated. [DarkRoastedBlend, YouTube]
