Feature: Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Goes Into Production!
Growing up, I didn’t hang posters of the Backstreet Boys, Leonardo DiCaprio or 2pac. My room was adorned with four posters that I still remember vividly. The Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Testarossa, Nissan Skyline R34 and the McLaren F1, you know, the orange one with the wooded backdrop that we are probably all too familiar with. It’s been many years since I’ve truly fantasized about owning one of those rare exotics, even though by today’s standards they would be considered fairly “cheap” relative to their original MSRPs. So what would I hang on my wall right now? It wouldn’t be the Bugatti Veyron – that would be almost too predictable, nor would it be the Mercedes-Benz SLS – that would be too clich. The Nissan GTR would be a good option but then that would be too practical. What car could I hang up today that I know would be cutthroat, nosebleedingly awesome like the cars of my youth? I haven’t been able to find a car for years, until now: The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was originally revealed as only a technological showcase concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. …
Take a Look at the Mercedes-Benz GLK 350
There are a few cars that tell us in one look that they are average and not the greatest car that we would desire to be viewed driving inside of. But there are other cars that exude an atmosphere of grandeur and the minute you peek at it you recognize it is the vehicle that you have always dreamed of. One of these cars is the new Mercedes-Benz GLK 350.
This is the very first high quality compact crossover SUV that Mercedes has ever made. Though the GLK 350 might be a bit more boxy than what we are used to seeing from them it does not let us down at all. The platform for this SUV was constructed on the standard C-class sedan.
So why did Mercedes choose to build an SUV? “We needed a car like the GLK 350,” sales representative Mark Leonard said. “It’s designed to go head-to-head with the BMW X3 and it is doing a fantastic job.”The SUV was debuted earlier this year and is projected to be a 2010 model version. It has already gathered much media attention because of its peculiar design and the price …
BMW Electric Cars
BMW has long been a leader when it comes to producing high-quality, technologically advanced cars, so it is no wonder that BMW owners have been waiting (sometimes rather impatiently) for a BMW electric car. BMW has researched electric cars for decades, but, like other companies, never made any real strides in the area because of all the politics around the gasoline/electric debate.
For a long time, American emission and MPG guidelines were stalled. Companies were allowed to continue to produce cars with low-MPR vehicles while other countries made amazing gains in that area. Recently, though, new efforts have been made to reduce the carbon footprints of American vehicles (meaning vehicles driven in America, not necessary produced there). Now the Environmental Protection Agency is placing new, stringent regulations in place that force companies to double their fuel economy within a set period of time. As a result, companies are finally producing environmentally friendly cars that do not pollute the air with their emissions.
Very recently, in 2011, BMW made a definite public commitment to finally produce and release an all-electric car, the ActiveE. This is considered a gamble by some because the company is well known for its …

Rolls Royce – Elegance and Style
Rolls Royce are a British car manufacturer and one of the few to focus on luxury as the reason for purchasing them – today the brand is synonymous with high-end luxury, a very high price tag and a no compromise attitude to comfort and style. Not for Rolls Royce is the race car pedigree though their engines are found everywhere, including in modern jet aircraft!
In 1904 Frederick Royce met the aristocratic Charles Rolls – Royce was an electrical engineer while Rolls was the son of a blue-blooded Baron, but he was also a serious car enthusiast. A partnership was formed with Royce building the luxury automobiles and Rolls responsible for selling them. The company they formed was Rolls Royce and was based upon Royce’s embryonic car business and started life at Christmas 1904.
The Silver Ghost was launched in 1907 as the first true Rolls Royce vehicle (previously they had been badged Royce designs). The Silver Ghost was powered by a 6-cylinder engine and the interior was painted a silver color (hence the name Silver Ghost). The reputation for quality was established with the Silver Ghost when one was eventually driven for more …
Lamborghini Concept S
The Lamborghini Concept S was created by Lamborghini’s Head of Design, Luc Donckerwolke that was inspired of the world’s sports car, the Lamborghini Gallardo. The designer used its floor plan as base for its new project. The Lamborghini Concept S is considered an embodiment of the open car concept. This unique supercar was well accepted by the audience and its designer received several awards due to his revolutionary vision when his concept car was revealed. It is regarded as the fierce competitor for the Ferrari F430 Spider and most people consider the Lamborghini Concept S would be the winner when it comes to the entire assessment.
This supercar was displayed the very first time in the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It is considered that the Lamborghini Concept S was envisioned like a modern interpretation of the single-seat roadster of history. The designers used a “change wind” instead of the conventional windscreen and divided the inside into two different compartments. The “change wind” is strategically placed in order to give an awesome look to the vehicle and in the same time frame can serve as an aura inlet for the engine placed behind the seats. As a result, …
