Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Maybe you can't tell, but underneath that driving burqa is one Mr. Michael Williams, cult internet personality and founder-slash-head-obsessive of heritage-style-menswear blog A Continuous Lean. This is what we know about Williams: in his spare time he stars in whiskey ads, trawls the heck out of flea markets, and he told us he likes us so much, he'd take a baseball bat for us. Oh, and he really really really loves driving.

Makes sense, then, that the folks over at UrbanDaddy enlisted Williams to test-drive the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante and 550-2 Bicolore. Impressions? "An Arc’Teryx jacket, jeans, Red Wings and a Nato strapped Luminox seemed like appropriate attire when setting out that morning," Williams writes, "but after doing 140 mph I wished I was dressed in a proper tuxedo and a Rolex a la Mr. Bond."
