    Yes, this is an exclusive shoot, never before done in any part of the world, featuring 2 of the world's recognized supercars and their offsprings from an adulterous affair with a certain Bavarian counterpart. Today we bring you a pair of Verde Ithaca Gallardo x MINI and a pair of Signal Green 911 x MINI. But seriously, do colour shades from a different make and model work on other cars? Most of the time, it never fails to go "I told you so" horribly wrong and only just sometimes, shamelessly, it just seem so right.

    '(00) had the Signal Green R53 MINI Cooper S for a couple of years now, that was inspired by none other than Porsche's 997 911 GT3 RS's colour scheme. All this time, I was dying to have a proper shoot with the illusive car that started the craze, and then there was a sighting during JPM's Hill Climb in 2009 but the picture I had was nothing short of disappointing.

    When Darkchild announced Project Kermit a couple of months ago, I knew we had to do a special shoot with the big boys. Verde Ithaca was the colour of choice for this 2003 Cooper S. You can't go wrong with the MINI. Just about any colour will go well with the cute little thing.

    Green has never looked this refreshing until Lamborghini and Porsche decided to update their classic shade of the colour to compete in the 21st century. Inspired by the lime green colour of the Miura SV in the 1970s dubbed the Verde Miura, Lambo revived the colour throughout the years and ended up in the form of Verde Ithaca that is to be applied to the Murcielagos and Gallardos.

    While Lambo's metallic peal lime green is brightest of all, Porsche's latest Signal Green was more mellow and had a darker hue. It may be darker, but the glow it emits at certain conditions and especially under lighting is simply breathtaking.

    The MINI RS and Lambomini taking a shot at VW's purest performance cars. Could well give them a run for their money in the city traffic and roundabouts.

    Almost a perfect execution of replicating the scheme of their idols.

    If the Lambo Spyder and Porker RS had sidekicks, the middle 2 would gladly be them.

    Darkchild joey-modded his facelift MINI projector headlights and put on carbon bezels to complete the blacked-out look.

    MINI really does look good with almost every color.

    Someone should start a Project "Lamborghini Arancio Atlas" Mini Cooper S! :)
