You don't even need to take a close look at the adjacent photo to see the it shows a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera sitting on four coups of tea! We can only approve this - Superleggera means super light in Italian, so this is the feather-like Gallardo's cup of tea.
No, there is no trick - the photo is real and the car was actually sitting on those cups. It was all a publicity stunt broguht to the world back in 2008 so that William Ashley China of Toronto could prove just how strong its products are.

We were wondering... could they porcelain-plate our office parking lot floor so we could slide in easier in the morning?
