Eau Rouge flat out for two decades

The Belgian GP is one of the top races on the F1 calendar for me, along with Monaco and Monza.

Why do we love it ? Because of Eau Rouge curve.. Something unusual for speed, downforce and ability to control the car flat out.

Watch how legends and world champions go flat out here

2015 Lamborghini Huracán test drive

some of you might have noticed that recently I created a car show on youtube to review cars, the bad news for most of my readers as I can see from stats and demographics.. that the show is in arabic only..

Yes I am a luck kid to be eligible to drive some cool cars, but I have worked so hard, i've been reading magazines, articles and recently youtube and videos.

This episode is about the all new Lamborghini Huracán and yes it is awesome!!
Will drive the aventador in the future, but I recon just like the Gallardo.. this might beat up the ass of the big brother..

Here you go..

Lamborghini Miura and Countach

The Lamborghini Miura And Countach started the super car era in the 60s through 80s and because they made super cool fast cars, Porsche created the 959 and Ferrari came up with the F40 and so on..

Car took us through some historical background about the two cars.. something very unique and cool.. watch and enjoy!




Enjoy!

Ferrari 458 Speciale Vs. Nissan GTR trackbattle by @EVO

I've driven so many cars.. nothing is even close to the sharpness of the Ferrari 458 Speciale, not even the F12.. although it might be the fastest most usable day-to-day car.

This time, the Nissan GTR which is always claiming faster times than it can achieve.. was against the new Ferrari 458 Speciale.. I know I know!! you'll say price.. who cares

watch and learn Nissan

Drag Race disasters in slowmotion

I am not a big fan of bikes or even drag race and this video is another reason why..
I know safety is very important in such type of racing but still I like tracks and twisty roads more.

BMW i8 TestDrive

I have been thinking a lot lately about the future of cars and supercars in particular.. why?

Because big, well known manufacturers like Porsche, Ferrari And McLaren launched hew hyper cars with batteries! Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1!

If these are leading our future, then it is really bright, hence that these cars are mules and people will be doing the companies a big favour by paying huge amounts of money in order to help the R&D divisions to develop more road cars and really affordable to normal consumers like me!

On the other hand, BMW came along with the new i8 and created a new category.. a Hybrid that you can buy without being selected! you just walk into the showroom, and buy the car on display!

Yes? No? I am quit not sure how I look at it.. Here's why.

Price tag : I don't think I am willing to pay this much money here in Kuwait and we are considered one of the top ten cheapest countries in terms of fuel prices. So i'll buy a Carrera S for less money instead.

Shape : It looks amazingly well designed! fascinating! Elegant! but I don't like cars with two or three colours..I know you can customise yours to single tone, but again not my type.

Interior : Looks somehow so advanced, yet like any other BMW!

Technology : This is the future, but I don't think dealers can fix the car. maybe the engineers who made are still not sure how to do it.

Environment : Of course we should look after the planet we live in.. But I do take care of it in some other way. I do have a sport car, a fast one and since fuel is cheap.. I tend to drive fast whenever I have time and space, so I recycle and save water, electricity and try not to print papers in the office as much as I can. so this car should be for people who like to print everything, and buy regular books instead of eBooks and so on.

In short, this video by Autocar explains lots of hidden facts and take it into details with more easy way to digest for normal people like me..

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

During Eid I ran away to Abu Dhabi and for the first time I had nothing planned apart from the Radical driving experience that will follow in another post later.

So we headed to Seikh Zayed Grand Mosque to take some photos. And It was both good and bad experience! 


The Place is amazing and gives you this Holy feeling..
But we were dragging bags full of photography kit, at the entrance, the security guy redirected us to another gate where they need to scan the bags..

Of course he led us to wrong gate..
We found it without help..

So we reached the "Scanning gate" supposedly

Me: Hi we are here to scan the bag, where is the scanner?
Security: What scanner?
Me: at gate 1 they told us to come here to scan the bags!
Security: Open the bag..
Me: You open it..
Security: we can not touch your bag..
Me: Where is the scanner?
Security: We have to check first... Whats inside?
Me: A big bomb!
Security: hehe oh thats a camera?
Me: I told you!
Security: *Points at a wire* and what is this?
Me: Snake!!
Security: hehe you can go now
Me: No scanner?
Security: no..

No paper that says you're scanned
No stamp
Nothing to show the other security guy that we were scanned!
 

So many expats not knowing what to do, where to go..
And they smell really bad!!



Other than this..
The place is really beautiful and gorgeous
Everything is neat.. and clean

Except again when you come to interact with another security guy!!
And no one on top like a manager to talk to!
 


This feels so calm..




Anyway..
I will go back again when the weather is better and people go to work..
What happened was good and bad..

But it was a great experience.

New Lamborghini Showroom in Kuwait

I was invited by Fuad Al-Ghanim Automotive (Dealers of Lamborghini, Audi, Skoda and other brands in Kuwait) to attend the soft opening of the new showroom in Shuwaikh.



Showroom located in Al-Tilal complex in Shuwaikh along with Audi which will be covered too soon in the blog.


The new showroom is bigger and just like the old one.. feels Lambo like.. everything is in black, the black flooring and filling.. car stands, leather seats and table.


The new Huracán LP610-4 is now available in Kuwait.. They have two cars and delivery is very soon..

And I mean very soon!






They have also a mean Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster with full kit of the 50th anniversary! in matt!







From the outside, you might have seen the Huracán a lot since the unveiling almost a year ago. but from the inside, it has changed drastically too.
 

Flat-bottomed steering wheel remains and more buttons now added to help the driver's hand on the wheel all the time.


Start button and reverse are now more cooler than ever.. You're somehow in love with reverse if you see this!









I hope you like the pictures, Anyone think we should take that green Huracan for a test drive ?
