Filed under: cars,Entertainment,history 101,random ish — hamiltonandtroup @ 5:12 pm


FAB Design has just fine tuned the SLR and dubbed it as ‘Desire’. This latest creation from FAB design leaves you speechless with its unmatched looks and design. Although, compared to the standard SLR, the vehicle has gained considerably in width; it still manages to impress us. The carbon fiber rebody gives this car a distinctive style and personality.


The SLR suspension and engine have been modified to bring power up to 750 hp and nearly 800 lb/ft of torque! The FAB Design “Desire” attains a regulated top speed of 310 km/h and reaches the 100 km/h mark in just 3.6 seconds. The stylish and sleek bodywork with an additional rear wing increases the cars downforce considerably. Ultra chic, this car is definitely ‘desirable’. With the SLR “Desire”, FAB Design has made another impressive statement of its special class in the field of high-end luxury car customization.des

At the Geneva Auto Show, Infiniti presented their new Essence sportscar. The beautiful car does not only impress with its design and its 600 HP hybrid engine, but also with the details. As you can imagine the trunk is pretty small, therefore Infiniti commissioned Louis Vuitton to create a custom luggage collection, that fits perfectly into the trunk. I mean really? really? One of these days.

Bugatti Veyron

By far my favorite car because with its 16-cylinder four-wheel drive, the Bugatti Veyron may well be the most sophisticated production vehicle of all times. 
Most of the components tucked beneath its hood are ingenious innovations . Boasting a maximum speed of more than 400 km per hour, the Veyron is Dominate in the super sports category. It has a total of 1,001 HP, and its ample power reserves even at high speeds for a constant speed of 250 km/h, the Veyron only needs 270-280 HP. This means that the seven-gear clutch transmission works with a torque of up to 1,250 Newton meters. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) ensures the necessary flexibility and maneuverability at any speed. The Veyron is so fast it reaches velocities that would literally lift the car off the ground if it weren’t for its ingenious aerodynamics, which keeps it firmly on the road even at full speed. Adjusting the back spoiler, reducing ground clearance, opening and closing the lids – it all adds to the perfect balance. Being such a super sports car it may not seem to be brought to a halt easily, but the Veyron’s ceramic brakes slow it down faster than it can accelerate which is very impressive. While it takes this exceptional car only 2.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, it needs even less time  (a mere 2.3 seconds) to come to a standstill from 100 (reference point). To reduce the risk of injuries in accidents, Bugatti had a Formula 1 safety concept adapted for the Veyron. All these technical details combine to make the Veyron a truly exceptional super sports car. So when I have about $1.5 million U.S dollars extra to spend I will most definitely get a Bugatti Veyron.
