Vanquish S Ultimate edition

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

The Austin Martin has always been one of the sexiest looking supercars on the road (IMO) and just when I thought it couldn’t look any better they decide to roll out the Austin Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Edition. The Vanquish S Ultimate Edition will be built to commemorate the last forty cars to roll off the production line. The Vanquish S Ultimate Edition centers on changes to the Vanquish S?s interior and exterior color and trim. The Vanquish S Ultimate edition will be painted “ultimate black” (a new color specifically created for the Ultimate Edition). On the inside, the all black cabin will be trimmed in a semi-aniline leather with coarse stitching and darkened chrome finish interior fittings. Each one will have a personalised sill plaque that will display its limited edition number. The Vanquish S Ultimate Edition will only be available with the 2+2 seating arrangement and the Ultimate Edition will come with no additional charge!

The Vanquish S Ultimate Edition will not include any performance upgrades over the standard Vanquish S (but as long as your the best looking you don’t need to be the fastest). When it comes to performance the Vanquish S may not be able to hang with the bigboys in the supercar lineup but it is still a “pretty” mean machine (check out the video below)! The Vanquish S has a V12 powerplant that pumps out about 525 horsepower and Read more…

Audi S4 pictures and info

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

I took some shots of my friends Audi S4 earlier today and messed around with them on Photoshop. Just thought I would share a few of the pics.
For those of you who don’t know much about the Audi S4, it really is a fun car to drive! The B5 Audi S4 (which was built between 1997 and 2002) is an all wheel drive 2.7 liter twin Turbo V6 sedan that is capable of pushing 350hp (to the wheels) with just a few bolt-ons (intake, exhaust, ECU…). Even now, 10 years after the S4 was first introduced they are still coming out with upgraded turbo kits capable of pushing the S4 to 630 wheel horsepower! The S4 also handles very well and I have had the pleasure of driving one or two through the back roads! Needless to say, the S4 has developed a huge enthusiast community and it’s rare to see an S4 that isn’t modified in some way. It might not have the lines of a supercar but it’s a great choice for those looking for a practical and sophisticated sedan that has all the comforts of a luxury sedan plus the perform of a sportscar!

Bugatti Veyron roadster release

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive, Uncategorized

Bugatti will soon be releasing a “Bugatti Veyron roadster”. Besides the new roof design, not much will change with the Bugatti roadster. You will still be able to cruise down the Pacific Coast highway at 252 mph… but now you can work on your tan at the same time! The design of the roof is not yet finalized and it is unsure if it will feature a glass targa type roof or a removable hardtop. The Bugatti roadster will still be powered by a quad turbo W16 engine that makes 1,000 horsepower (basically 2 twin turbo V8 engines smashed together) and it will most likely be otherwise identical to the 2008 Bugatti Veyron with all the same specs. And yes it will still cost $1,000,000+ dollars.
