Lamborghini Aventador Lends Occasion To Any Event You Choose
Launched in spring this year at the top event of the motoring year, the Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini’s new flagship model will give you breathtaking performance and awesome aesthetics. It is ideal to add a new dimension to your leisure time in the form of sports car hire.
The Lamborghini Aventador has the latest in Independent Shift Rods transmission, claimed to be faster and ‘more emotional’ than a dual-clutch system. Indeed, the seven-speed, semi-automatic gearbox achieves gear changes significantly faster than a dual clutch, in 50 milliseconds. From there, power is distributed throughout via an electronically-controlled Haldex coupling, distributing forces to both front and rear.
Formula One inspired, its lightweight chassis with pushrod suspension completes the picture. A perfect balance is achieved through aluminium double wishbones coupled with carbon-fibre ceramic brakes. Lightweight yet fierce, this Lamborghini hire gives maximum dynamism. This is accomplished thanks to three driving modes of ‘Strada’ (road), Sport and ‘Corsa’ (track). These harmonise the engine, transmission, differential, steering and dynamic control in perfect synchronicity.
Everything about this car is a step ahead, according to Stephen Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. He calls the Aventador, “a …

Successful First Time Car Buying
For young people just arriving at the age when they can begin driving a car or those rapidly approaching this milestone in their life, much of many conversations with their parents turn to them getting their own car.
If you’re a parent about to engage in this type of subject matter with your son or daughter (As I have now for a couple kids), there are some very real reality checks you need to bring very much to light with your child.
First and foremost, and not to overstate the obvious, is the question of how do you plan on paying for the car? Of course, if you’re the type of parent who has the financial means and is going to just buy the car for your child, then you probably would have no need for this article. But, for those of us who firmly believe that our children should participate and learn these life’s lessons, you’ll want to read on.
One detail that you want to make sure that you bring home to the thought process of car buying for your son or daughter is that as long as they own the car; they …
2012 Brabus 800 Coupe – 800 Hp, 1,047 Lb-Ft of Torque – Need I Say More?
Brabus does it again! They took an already powerful Mercedes Benz CL and put it on a Swedish steroid diet, locked it in a gym and took an already beautiful face and gave it a facelift! The result of all this trickery is the 2012 Brabus 800 Coupe, which is similar to the 2012 Brabus Rocket 800 which we wrote about earlier.
You will note that all of the pictures of this model were taken at the Brabus Middle East branch, which is located in Dubai, UAE. There is a good reason for that, and it’s probably because you need Middle Eastern oil money to buy one of these. To be specific, this Brabus will set you back… well there was no stated price for the car, but because it’s not disclosed we believe it’s expensive, at least a quarter-million.
And once you purchase one of these, you will know that your not-so-hard-earned oil money was well spent. I say that because you will get what is hands down the fastest and most powerful luxury coupe at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show.
What Is A Written-off Vehicle?
You’ve found the car of your dreams and it seems like a real bargain. Maybe a Nissan X trail with just 36,000 km on it – and it’s going for less than $10K! How can it be so cheap? Is the seller out of his mind?Many buyers are surprised to learn that some of these vehicles are classified as “repairable write-offs” and that’s why they’re being offered at bargain basement prices. Learn about repairable write-offs and understand what you’re getting in your used car.
What is a Repairable Write Off?
A vehicle that is classified as a repairable write off will have a listing in the written off vehicle register. Essentially, these cars were deemed uneconomical to repair by an insurance company and subsequently “written off” and a payout made to the owner for the value of the vehicle. Many owners will then go on to sell the written off vehicle to a business that specialises in collecting “junk cars” – or they may even elect to pay for the repairs themselves. The car is then repaired and put through a written off vehicle inspection. Once the repaired vehicle is deemed roadworthy, it re-registered and …
Tips For Buying A Car, Old Or New
Great care should be taken when buying a car, as this is probably your most expensive asset after your home.

In recent times with the increased incidence of the repossession of motor vehicles by banks and other finance houses, motor vehicle auctions in Cape Town have become more and more popular and prevalent.
The big draw-back of auctions, however, is that you will have to do a lot of research into your car of choice by yourself. If you have little or no knowledge of motor vehicles, take someone who does along with you and always check up on any information given to you by the auctioneers.
Insist on a test drive and ask a knowledgeable friend to come along and assess the car.
Verify the car?s history by contacting previous owners if necessary.
Make sure it is not a code 3 (meaning two damaged cars that have been welded together) …
