Ferrari F12 Vs. Lamborghini Aventador

This is something I was expecting to come, but no one was brave enough to do it.

The good part is, both cars are factory stock and both have V12s normally aspirated.
It all goes down to the rolling start that goes well for the Ferrari.

Lets watch

What do you think?
What other conditions would you try both cars in?

Bentley Flying Spur Launch in Dubai

The new Bentley Flying Spur was launched globally few weeks ago in China since it is one of the fastest luxury cars growing markets.

So I was invited by Al-Zayyani Kuwait (The dealers of Bentley, Bugatti Jaguar, Ferrari and Daihatsu in Kuwait) to go to Dubai to attend the regional Launch and a test drive a day after.

I Arrived in Dubai the day of the launch, hit the gym and then got ready for the launch.
It was taking place in JW Marriott Marquis. one nice hotel I never knew about again in Dubai!

The night started, and I was all dressed up in a racing suit (Kidding of course) and went to mingle around and enjoy the pre-launch party.

The place was very classy since it is held by one of the most luxurious brands globally and they have to stick to their standards and origins.

Music and snacks passing around. was very cool.

The moment of the launch was close, As a car lover, I already know how the car looks and performs (Numbers only) So I was exited to see the car for the first time in the flesh.

Boooom! What a stance!!!
For many people, this is just another flying spur.. But to someone knows the car, they can tell the differences between this one and the outgoing model.

I'll just mention some of them, not all
Big headlights out, small one inside, And this will give the car a wider look.
Side B Badge for Bentley.
Wider body over all and you can notice that from the hips.
More verity of rims, optional to customers to choose from.
New back lights, which I couldn't like. but it has a design significance that I will explain later.

Mr. Geoff Dowding Bentley Regional Director of Middle East, Asia Pacific and UK explaining how the heritage of bentley is still well taken care of in this car. yet, they gave it a new sporting personality with more luxury features never been available in the previous flying spur.

Waiting for the test drive ?
Wait for the next post ;)

Ferrari F40 & Ferrari F50

The Ferrari F40 is considered one of the greatest cars in history. for me it is ranked behind the one and only McLaren F1 and same level of the Porsche 959. Any car beside these cars.. might be great too but not greater.

1 Million Miles Porsche 356

This is a car that was made from day one to be driven, not to be stored in a cooled garage.
The guy got the car from his father almost 40 years ago, and been driving it since then, a million miles means 1,600,000 km.

Still the car runs fine, no squeaks or problems, engine rebuilt 3 times just few issues like any other car which is normal.

Porschers, be proud..

2014 VW Golf R

Now the hottest hatchback car of all time is the VW GTi and maybe the ccoler version of that car would be the new Golf R.

In the past, we sued to have the GTi and R32 then R36 which uses a V6 engine 3.2L & 3.6L respectively. VW decided to replace the V6 with a 2.0L 4 cylinder to save weight for such a small car, and yet have more torque from the turbocharged engine.

This one is the most powerful of all Golf cars.

This latest engine makes 296 Bhp.. which makes it the next hot hatch next to the A45 AMG Mercedes and BMW 130i

Huh! A car to wait for.. Cool..

2014 Range Rover Sport launched in Kuwait

I was invited by Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive, official dealer of BMW, Rolls-Royce, Mini, Land Rover and McLaren in Kuwait to attend the official launch of the totally new Range Rover Sport 2014. 

I got there earlier than everyone along with 7ajidude Blog. and there was no one except us! so we started checking the car up.

The one with no cover was the top of the range Autobiography car.. Fully loaded and comes with every single gadget offered by Range Rover.. not literally.. but somehow everything needed for our region.

Very similar I say to the compact Range Rover Evoque. but this is the pumped up version and comes with more engine options.

Exterior says clear ''I'm A Range Rover"

Car is full of little details for those who are willing to spend more on the engine and optional wheels, bigger brakes and more options available on the website.

Car basic price starts from 23,000 KD up to 50,000KD if you ticked stuff you don't need here in Kuwait.

With a big verity of engines ranging from a 3.0L Super charged V6 up to the 5.0L Supercharged V8 Engine running 510 horses.

 As I told you, below you see the side profile of the car, to me.. this looks like the Evoque.. But that's just me again..

Cool headlights.. Love them..

Interior is very luxurious and neat for an SUV, this one here is Autobiography remember. so you see the fully loaded car here, not the basic one. But I still think the combination of colours Black\Red is perfect.

6 buttons on the driver's seat doing 10 functions is Cool!
That's not a Bentley after all!

The car is now available in the showrooms in Kuwait, Visit Ali Al-Ghanim & Sons for more information about the car.

2015 Yukon & Tahoe

Finally hit the internet, the new and final pictures and specs of the new Tahoe and Yukon 2015.
Since they were changed back in 2006, this is the 8th year and 2014 is the 9th and final before handing the CV to the new generation.

This car is very popular in our region due to the nature of the GCC families and the cheap fuel prices compared to the prices in the states and Europe.

New generation feature new gadgets and toys, not including the engine.. since they will keep the 5.3L for the Tahoe and Yukon. And the new Denali will get the 6.2L.

Nothing new wxcept few changes not in power, but in fuel efficiency.

Video : 918 Full Nurburgring lap record

Porsche did it with the 918 Spyder around the Nürburgring with the stock street car, fitted with street Michelin tires.. under 7 minutes.. exactly 6:57 mins

Not bad for a hybrid car! And it sounded better than I thought.. for a V8.

Lets wait for the official numbers of the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari.
Do you think they'll be faster?

Tax The Rich - Jaguar XJ220

These videos are just insane..
They did some videos about the Enzo, F50 Battle, Bugatti E110, Rolls-Royce Phantom.. and now this ultra rare, ultra expensive Jaguar XJ220..

I love this car and I love the way it looks.. since I was a kid..
But what they did here.. is just insane!

This is what we need.. to see cars in action, rather than air conditioned garage..
Keep it going.. and Tax the rich

Porsche 2014 GT3 991 Vs. McLaren MP4-12C Vs Nissan GTR

Jethro Bovingdon takes the GT3 991 against the McLaren MP4-12C around a track and sets some lap times. then drive it around with a GTR..

Jethro is an insane car enthusiast.. in a good way. and he's like Chris Harris, another Porsche fanboy. this will bring us to another conclusion when they talk about Manual Vs. PDK

I love the fact that the 991 GT3 is as fast as the McLaren in a short circuit. but am sure, with another circuit full of straights, like Monza.. McLaren could win.


Audi - Motorsport is coming home

Audi won 12 LeMans races in the past 15 years..
They won rallies back in the 80s too
They're intending to keep it going..

Such a beautiful video

To Allan Simonsen who passed away during LeMans 2013

RIP Allan

Chris Harris Drifting Pagani Huayra for Grid2

This Pagani has nothing wrong at all.. except the price tag..
But it is easily justified once you visit the factory..

Chirs was going sideways in a million euro car..

Lucky bastard :P

Funky Helmets - Ruby Castle

I came across a website with an article about helmets, and although I don't like them all.. but they're interesting and might suit everyone!

I was looking just for fun, when I discovered they're actually made of carbon fiber and other light weight materials. goes as light as 0.870 up to 1.070 kg.. which is very light! yet carbon fiber is safe.

Even if you have something in mind that you can't find here.. click here , go to costume and create your own!

I found out also they have a dealer in Kuwait.. you might find prices in KD - Click here
