Javelin Personal Jet

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Transportation

The Javelin Person jet by ATG is designed to look and perform much like a fighter jet. It is the fastest private jet available and it is capable of reaching Mach .90 (close to 1,000 kph).

If you’re looking to pick up a Javelin it will set you back about $2.8 million but you will have to be patient because there are already over 100 orders and the first deliveries are not scheduled until 2009.

Swiss Bank Accounts

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium finance and money matters

If you’re looking for a way to protect your assets than look into opening a Swiss bank account. You won’t find a more secure account than a Swiss bank account. If you need to protect your assets from snoopy investigators, or if you want to keep your financial status a secret a Swiss account can be the ideal place. The Swiss have some of the tightest regulations and privacy policies in the entire world as far as who can gain access to your account.

swiss account

So… who exactly would be interested in a Swiss bank account?
A Swiss bank account is most useful for people looking to keep their financial status a secret, and protect their assets from “attack.”

Under American law, law enforcement agencies, the judicial system, and private citizens can gain access to all kinds of financial information under. However, under Swiss law, except for extraordinary circumstances neither the bank’s officers or the bank’s employees are allowed to reveal any information, relative to any account to anyone, including the Swiss government.

No private citizen, or their legal representative can ever receive any type of information about any one’s Swiss bank account under any set of conditions. That includes all types of legal proceedings that the Swiss classify as “non-criminal behavior.”

The Swiss consider tax evasion and many other “crimes” under US law as “political offences.” Things like divorce, inheritance disputes and bankruptcy cases are examples of “private matters,” and as such the secrecy of the account is protected from any legal action to verify the presence of, or attempts to seize any assets.

Below is a list of the 5 biggest Swiss banks. All are familiar with foreign accounts:

– The Swiss Credit Bank in Zurich
– The Union Bank of Switzerland
– The Bank Leu (AG) in Zurich
– The Swiss Bank Corporation in Basel
– The Swiss Volksbank in Berne

2007 Mercedes SLR (new and improved)

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

I thought the Mercedes Mclaren SLR
was already fast enough, but apparently not. The new 2007 Mercedes Mclaren SLR will be new and improved. The SLR will produce about 25 more horsepower and be even lighter than its predecessor. Below are some pictures of a prototype Mercedes McLaren SLR spotted on a mountain road in Spain. The spy photos show the new SLR undergoing testing on public roads prior to its planned unveiling at the Paris motor show in September.
2007 slr1

The updates to the new Mercedes SLR are said to include a power increase for its supercharged V8 from 626 to 650 hp, an updated interior, 19-inch wheels, a firmer suspension, a new and improved braking system (hard to believe) and increased weight savings. A New blue exterior may also be available with tan interior.

It also appears that the new Mercedes SLR will have some reworked body features that will distinguish it from the existing model. As you can see in the pictures below the 2007 SLR’s subtle styling changes are noticeable around the front and rear ends. All changes are aimed at improving high-speed stability and creating more efficient underbody airflow.
