California’s AB 1824 – What You Can Do To Help Reverse The Crazy Aftermarket Exhaust Law

Aftermarket Exhaust

Aftermarket Exhaust

In June of 2018 the California Assembly voted to approve the bill AB 1824. Among other things in this bill, it changed the way that police officers are to handle pulling over someone with a modified exhaust system.

Before January 1st, 2019 (when the bill went into affect), if you were pulled over with an aftermarket muffler that was thought to be over 95 decibels the officer could give you a fixit ticket.

The Sound Of A Multimillion Dollar Lamborghini – Video

By   April 18, 2013

Only three Lamborghini Venenos will be made and all three multimillion dollar examples have already been sold. This video shows the prototype that made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show getting driven after the show. The video mainly shows the car backing up and the driver has to use the traditional Lamborghini way of backing up the car.

The biggest take away from the video is just how good the car sounds. At just an idle it has a great tone, although when the horn is honked it does take a bit away from the presence. The car looks like nothing else on the road and I’m sure that the few wealthy people that will have a Veneno will be getting quite a car.
