How to carve up your lawn like a Lamborghini
Lamborghini is returning to its roots by offering up an array of Raging Bull-branded lawn care equipment. The Italian supercar manufacturer notoriously got its start hocking tractors, so it should come as no surprise that the suits at Sant'Agata have decided to return to the company's agricultural beginnings.
Lawn-care company IKRA has licensed the Tonino Lamborghini name for an array of landscaping implements of destruction, including grass and hedge trimmers, electric chainsaws and cordless sheers.
Sadly, from what we can tell, none of them come with a V12.
Somewhat surprisingly, the pieces aren't ridiculously priced, either. The IKRA electric chainsaw will set you back around $200 while the electric hedge trimmer comes in at a very manageable $150.

Gardening for the 'iPod generation'
Luxury sports car brand Lamborghini has licensed out the brand to IKRA to design a series of chic garden tools under the name Tonino Lamborghini.
The range of Tonino Lamborghini garden tools includes electric chainsaws, hedge trimmers, cordless shears, and cordless grass trimmers all of which were exhibited at the Spoga Gafa trade show held in Cologne September 5-7.
The sleek and chic tools pay homage to the design aesthetics of Lamborghini's famous cars and were designed to appeal to members of the younger generation who may consider gardening uncool or unsexy.
The British Association of Garden Designers has previously suggested that if nothing was done to make gardening more trendy, then future generations would no longer take it up as a hobby. It is hoped that aesthetically pleasing and functional garden products such as these will reverse the declining interest in gardening and encourage the so-called "iPod generation" to take up horticulture as a hobby.
