Xzibit Loses His License for Speeding 1 Day Into the 2007 Gumball Rally

XzibitDuring the first day of the rally Xzibit lost his license in the Netherlands for doing 160 km/h where only 100 km/h allowed. After the painful penalty his co-driver took over the wheel and they were allowed to continue.

It seems the X man couldnt wait for the German Autobarhn’s to see what speeds he could do in his Lamborghini Gallardo.

We’re not sure if this means Xzibit cannot drive in other countries – We will follow Team Xzibit on his way through Europe to see if he gets behind the wheel in Germany.

Lets hope the X man gets to enjoy a few more hours of driving in the rally!

In a recent interview Xzibit show how keen he is to get the tour started.
“I can’t wait to get back out there to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the UK, Germany; you know what I’m saying, [then] come back to the States and kill it!”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Orders ‘Pimp My Ride’ Engine For His Hummer

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was so impressed by the biodiesel makeover he took part in on an upcoming environmentally-themed Pimp My Ride show, he insisted mechanics install the same engine under the bonnet of his Hummer.

The star and rapper/host Xzibit joined forces to makeover a 1965 Chevy Impala and give the classic vehicle an environmental, biodiesel edge as part of an Earth Day Pimp My Ride.

And Schwarzenegger was stunned when Galpin Auto Sports mechanics fitted the classic car with an 800 horsepower biofuel engine, equipped with recycled plastic bottles. He has now asked Galpin boss Beau Boeckman to fit the same engine in his own car.
