Jaguar F-Type squares off against Porsche 911, Aston V8 Vantage

If you're a fan of fast cars..
You must differentiate between a Fast car, and a Fun car..
Sometimes you have to set priorities to know what car suits you more.

In the next Video Chris Harris is going to explain some of that.. and i'll explain after the video..


So for some people, Driving might be something that has to be done.. 
For others, Driving can be a whole more than that.. like the sound of that exhaust, what look people would give you when you get out of the car.. and how would you drive it at night with empty streets and your favourite song on reply..

I would be confused when it comes to the Jag and the Porsche in this video, I love German engineering.. but that Jag can be a whole lot more fun but not in Kuwait.

What's your pick?

Lamborghini Grande Giro - Judgment Day

The last Day of the Grand Giro trip in Italy was in Bologna and all of the 350 cars were parked in two main walking distance areas and Concourse d'Elegance judges were there to celebrate the 50th anniversary and award some winners and owners of the historical cars..

Some old Lamborghinis looked new to me.. you won't believe that these cars were stored from the 60s and 70s! very neat and taken care of.

As you can see from the picture above, the Muira and Countach look very outdated when compared to the Aventador in the picture below..

But, back in the 60s, the Muira was able to do figures like the 1998 Porsche Carrera!
While the countach was able to do 300+ km/h which is again a figure the Porsche Carrera can't do in 2013! or yet to be proven..

No company is brave enough to use these colours on some 400K$ cars.. And you wont go and buy an orange Enzo..

The legend, Mr. Valentino Balboni was there driving a black Muira..
Met him for the 2nd time.. and I was shocked he remembered me!!!!!

If you're not an old reader, here's my 2011 Interview with Mr.Balboni when he was one of the judges of the 2011 Concours d'Elegance Kuwait.

Yes! Shit happens..

And below you might enjoy some shots from the talented Feras Al-Farsi.

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

This is dear friends the first Aston Martin Vanquish Volante to have full carbon fiber body. with the 6.0L V12 engine that gives around 570Bhp!

Having in mind that this is a topless car, the canvas roof can be operated at the speed of around 50 km/h to start tanning after 14 seconds after pressing the button.

Ceramic brakes gives a big sign to all potential customers that this is a serious GT sports car and not a city cruiser or for your hot date in Monaco!

Side signal lights are also made of carbon fiber to give a more sportier look..

Interior is not my taste, but I can imagine this in red and mixed with carbon fiber all over, with that real leather!!
