MotoArt Jumbo Jet Table

JumboJetTable1

Bring the iconic Boeing 747 into your conference room with MotoArt’s newest piece made from a General Electric engine nacelle. At 12’ wide this high-mirror polished table seats up to 12, and includes a set of 6 pop-up connection ports. The custom fabricated engine stator is set off with internal LED lighting in a color or your choice, and topped with a B-52 engine spinner.

This is probably the coolest conference table from MotoArt that I have ever seen, made from a Boeing 747 Engine. They make amazing pieces of furniture from old plane parts, but this is one of the best I have seen them make. The process they go through is exhausting to get the perfect piece, and thats one of the reasons why it is so expensive. I have yet to walk into an office with MotoArt furniture, it would take a very rich company to buy that sort of furniture. Still I really love this meeting table.

Price: $35’000 – $45’000

Le Monstre by D3 – Cadillac CTS-V’s Distant Scary Cousin

The thing that I love about Chevy/Cadillac’s high powered vehicles is that they make machines that make you laugh, that is the thing about American cars, you laugh like a kid when you are behind the wheel. The Cadillac CTS-V is one beast and they just took it to another level, tuning it to 1000 bhp and adding components to turn it into a racing machine and I for one would to try this machine out. And the Matte Black does look pretty damn good on it, I’m assuming it took a lot of parts to change it into this beast.

The Only Points That Need To Be Known:

  • 1001HP
  • 1000TQ
  • 5:1 power to weight ratio
  • 427 CID w/3.6L Supercharger System
  • Toyo Proxes T1R tires (front: 275/30ZR20; rear: 345/25ZR20)
  • 1+G On The Skid Pad

XBow in Kuwiat @ Bike World

Got a call from BikeWorld that they have a surprise waiting in their showroom, I had an inkling but wasn’t sure. I headed straight over only to find the beast sitting on the showroom floor, the infamous KTM X-Bow right in front of me. I was impressed when I first saw this machine on the track during GulfRun 5, but seeing it again made my heart skip a beat. Luckily this machine is also fully street legal, so you can drive on it on the streets but I would prefer to drive it on the track. Words can only describe the ferocity of the machine, powered by Audi 2.0 liter turbo FSI four it can fly down the road since its frame is made out of carbon fiber. The engine is mated to an Audi six-speed manual with military precision design. I like how it looks and the best part about it is the minimalistic design. One of the key features that I like about this machine is that its serviceable by Audi and you can tune the engine from any manufacturer who modifies Audi engines.

I knew this is an expensive piece of machinery, I have been asking about it for over a year now and it I kept getting pricing between 41’000 to 45’000 KD from the Emirates or Qatar. There was no budging on the price and it was too much, and this wasn’t even for the Superlight version, with upgraded brakes, modified suspension and lighter body. This KTM X-Bow at BikeWorld is selling for 34’995 KD which is barely above cost, its insanely cheap for an X-Bow, cheaper then the used ones online. I know this isn’t a machine for everyone but who ever gets it is someone who will love it dearly.

GulfRun – Three Weeks and Counting

I literally only have a few days left until the wheel starts for GulfRun and my car has been in the shop for three weeks and counting now. At first it went in for some repair and they replaced the parts, then I brought some parts to be installed and my ECU had to be sent out to the states, and I got it barely on Thursday and the garage only operates as a half day on Thursday. There are two things left and I have to get it done literally in 24 hours or I will be missing the carwash event which is a bummer! But still going to push for it and hopefully it will get done.

Items Left:

  • Road Test with all new items installed and newly programmed ECU from the states.
  • Weld work for the exhaust pipe to install the new pipe which eliminates the resonator.
  • New body parts which will make the care lighter (ultimately cooler).

This honestly has been a hell of a lot of fun, I want to hear how the engine sounds like and how its going to move but I’m really cutting it close at this point and I have ordered the parts over months ago. I have learned a lot from this experience and now that I know I won’t repeat those mistakes. I especially want to try out the new big brake kit, they are huge so I’m hoping to able to stop on a dime at this point.
