2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat

I really do love American Muscle, I love the feeling that this car will keep on burning rubber until you take your foot off the gas. American Muscle isn’t for everyone, but damn it I love it.

The Charger has a beast under the hood, with 707-hp flowing from a supercharged V8 displacing 6.2 liters . It pumps out 650 lb-ft of torque, can sprint to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and can post a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds. The engine is paired with the an eight-speed automatic transmission which is specially designed to handle the increased output.

I was never a fan of Dodge because of their build quality but I liked the Challenger and the moment I read 707 bhp I want this car, and I love in white with the matte gold rims.

With a top speed of 204 miles an hour this is a machine that very few companies would make and price starting at around $65’000 it is cheap compared to any other machine within the same power range, be it American, German, Japanese, English or Italian.

Jaguare XJ220 Joy Ride

This is the first supercar that I ever loved and saw in real life in London in the early 90s in a car show that I remember sponsored by Pepsi. This is the original supercar, a beast on the road, pure imagination into a machine. Now this video is just insanely cool, an XJ220 drifting around the farms, and I love the kid with the iPad in this video.

Police Supercars

BrabusRocketPolice

When people think police they don’t think Supercars or machines that can fly past a helicopter, but there are a few countries with high speed police that can chase you down. Well at least these police departments have some interesting machines to chase people, I know that some of them are for show but I know the Italian Polizia have used their vehicle during chases.

  • Germany – Brabus Rocket – Top Speed: 362 kph
  • Dubai – Lamborghini Aventador – 349 kph
  • Italy – Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder – Polizia Municipale – 324 kph
  • Belgium – Porsche 911 997 Turbo – 312 kph
  • Holland – Spyker C8 – Flevoland Police – 300 kph
  • Italy – Lotus Evora S – Carbinieri – 261 kph

Ferrari LeFerrari

I think this is one very sexy machine from Ferrari and it looks good on the track, one of their latest supercars or hypercar as the new term goes. But what kind of name is LeFerrari? Honestly sounds like something off a menu at an Italian restaurant. Enzo sounded strange and interesting, couldn’t they find something to match how impressive this machine is at 949 bhp and 0-62 mph in under 3 seconds and a top speed more then 217 mph. One very futuristic looking machine I would love to get my hands on it or see how it feels to sit on the cockpit. Please change the name.

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – A Thing Of Beauty

I was passing by Shuweikh the other day and decided to pass by Audi to check out the S8 only to spot an Aventador parked in the lobby. So I walked over to the other side to see a mean Stealth Grey Aventador parked right in front of me, I always thought it was a beautiful machine, but pictures do not do it justice at all, it is a completely different creature when you see it in front of you.

It is extreme in its design and its performance, uncompromising in its standards and technology, and unmistakably Italian in its style and perfection. This machine looks like its speeding while parked in that showroom, then I got a sneak peak to see one getting prepared for his owner, Mashalla mashalla I was in awe. I loved the machine in both Stealth Grey and the lovely hue of Orange.

Is 0-62 Mph in 2.9 seconds fast enough? Well thats what the Aventador can do and thats even faster then a lot of bikes. And when I sat inside that cockpit I felt like I was about to go to warp speed, so after Lamborghini builds these machines they will build the Star Trek Enterprise, when your sitting inside the vehicle you feel like you are inside a Jet Fighter which is ready to fly into space. Technology has been infused into this machine perfectly the driver digital display feels like something out of Minority Report, completely digital and changes to what you need, all I needed was to start the turbines, adjust the flaps, and I fly out. And yes I started the car and I was about to drool, I was already mesmerized by the way it looks and the sound just took it to another level.

LFA & IS-F On Track

“The Gizmos and Gadgets are like being inside a Transformer”

I have seen the LFA in Kuwait a few times on the road, the white one, and it is a beautiful creature to see. But hearing the exhaust for the first time in this video is amazing and I love that they have matched it up with the IS-F. The IS-F is one the most fun four door sedans out there to drive and seriously a lot of bundled up power in the machine. I really love the color on both the LFA and IS-F and they both do wonders around the track. If I had a choice between a Lamborghini and the LFA I would honestly go with the LFA because its a once in a lifetime vehicle, its on a level of its own.

McLaren Dealerships

After splitting from Mercedes it was clear that McLaren were launching their own car, and I have been posting about the MP4-12C constantly. Now the interesting part is the steps they are taking, no company has had the same stepping stone as they did. They have a long line of people waiting to buy the car, a lot of money to initially work with, a very successful racing history, and they are on top right now. Everyone wants a piece of the pie, and a large piece of that pie is coming to the Middle East as any car manufacturer knows there are a lot of car aficionados who are willing to pay a pretty penny for their car.

Dealership Breakdown:

  • Europe: Birmingham, London, Manchester; Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich; Brussels; Monaco, Paris; Milan; Barcelona/Madrid; Zurich
  • North America: Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Orange County, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Tampa; Toronto
  • Middle-East / South Africa: Manama; Doha; Jeddah, Riyadh; Dubai, Abu Dhabi; Kuwait; Johannesburg
  • Asia-Pacific: Hong Kong; Singapore; Sydney; Tokyo

What I find interesting is their concentration in the Middle East, 2 in Saudi and 2 in UAE. So 20% of the 35 dealerships which are planned to be opened are in the Middle East. I’m not sure who is going to be the dealer in Kuwait but I do know that Mercedes in Kuwait is one of the perspective dealerships, I’m curious who else bid for it in Kuwait, I just hope that Zianni doesn’t get it because they have the worst service period.

TG M600, LFA, & Fiat in the Cold

Noble is a maker of race bred machines, only to make one very scary 600+ bhp M600. This machine is so mechanically brutal it has no GPS, no Air Conditioning, No ABS, basically nothing that requires a computer to think. You have your gearbox, your engine, and tires to the ground. Even Jeremy Clarkson was genuinely petrified from this machine, and he should be there is no room for mistakes with this machine around the track for 200’000 British Pounds you can get a lot of amazing super cars, but none of them can beat them on the road.

This is the first video Adverstisment of the Lexus LFA, there is so much pride for this machine. Toyota really built this machine out of pride, only 500 will be made and at a loss. I am envious of those who will buy this machine, it will be priced at 180’000 KWD in Kuwait with a waiting list already at 10. It isn’t the most powerful machine available but one of the most technologically advanced machines on the face of the planet.

I am a fan of the Fiat 500 but these women must have froven their butts off in the cold.

Lexus LFA – Lease Now Buy Later

LexusLFA

Now this is an interesting turn of events from Lexus, there has been a lot of buzz about the LFA. At $150’000 this is one of the most expensive vehicles from Lexus yet, but a limited production of 500 will be made, sold, and delivered by January 2011. What usually happens with high end limited cars such as these is that a few by them to drive, and many buy them to drive up the prices and make a profit over the mark up. What Lexus is doing so that dealerships don’t have the usually excuse for equipment and training to mark up prices, they are providing for the specialized training for special mechanics, and provide the equipment free of charge to those specific dealerships who are authorized to sell the LFA. Now for the interesting part, Lexus will not be selling the LFA outright, they will lease them for 2 years and give you a buy out option later. This is meant to discourage those companies or individuals who buy limited quantity machines such as the LFA and try to sell them at ridiculous profit, making it difficult to transfer the machine to another owner, if this works other supercar manufacturers will follow suit.

Lamborghini LP-670-4 SuperVeloce

Who said Lamborghini doesn’t like making a statement, and with this machine its a loud one. The new LP-670-4 SuperVeloce has a revised V-12 pumping 670 bhp and 487 lb-ft of torque. A neck breaking 0 – 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and an insane top speed of 212 mph. I do like the look of the wing, gives it an aggressize stance.
