Mercedes Benz SLS Gullwing- Past & Present

The original 1956 300 SL Gullwing next to a 2010 SLS 63 AMG. A six-cilinder with direct injection delivering 215bhp next to a 6.2 liter V8 engine delivering 563bhp. Arguably one of the most beautiful Mercedes-Benz created, its great to see the craftsmanship and heritage is still transcending despite the 45 years difference between both models.

We Can See This BMW With Our Eyes Closed….

A cool new campaign from BMW uses an optical illusion called an afterimage effect to cause viewers to see the BMW logo when they closed their eyes after seeing the commercial.  Check out the video and see how they did it….but we have to get flashed ourselves to believe it.

BMW has figured out a way to burn itself into perspective customers' heads – or at least their eyes.
Lighting manufacturer Profoto worked with BMW on a commercial in which light effects let viewers temporarily see "BMW" when they close their eyes, according to theHuffington Post .
The company used an optical illusion called an "afterimage" effect. reported it was created by hiding a Profoto Pro 7B studio flash unit behind the screen at a German movie theater. A card with the letters "BMW" cut into it was placed in front of the light.
The flash fired during the advertisement and burned the letters into the viewers' retinas. As a motorcyclist in the commercial told people to close their eyes, they did so and saw "BMW" projected onto the backs of their eyelids.
An afterimage is also known as a ghost image, according to Wikipedia . The most common is the bright light that seems to float before someone's eyes if the person looks into a light source for a few seconds then looks away

This sounds and looks very innovative, hopefully when I go to see the movie ,Tron this commercial will pop up and then I can co-sign what sounds impossible right and technology just keeps on evolving into realms we could not have foreseen decades ago.

City Sports Cars Challenge (A review) AUDI S5 x BMW M3 x LEXUS IS-F x MERCEDES-BENZ C63 AMG

Lexus IS-F
Audi S5
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
The BMW M and Mercedes AMG have always been dominant in the market when it comes to balancing luxury and high performance, however it would be naive to ignore the vast progression of Audi in the last decade especially with the S Line and also we should not count out the Japanese giant Lexus either. Thus a comprehensive review will be done on the following cars, with expert opinions based on facts and also my candid comprehension of this exciting competition....

Throwback of the Week: Jay-Z Feat Mary J Blige - Can't knock the Hustle

BMW M3 Vs Audi RS5 video review

One of the most popular reviews in the sport luxury segment is the the one between the BMW M3 and its top competitor, Audi RS5.
The M3 is powered by the S65B40 engine, a naturally aspirated, high revving 4-liter V8 (based on the S85B50 5-liter V10 that powers the E60/E61 M5 and the E63/E64 M6 to date) delivering 414 horsepower (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8,300 rpm and peak torque of 400 Nm (300 lb-ft) at 3,900 rpm.
Based on the A5 coupe, RS5’s 4.2-liter V-8 makes 450 hp at 8250 rpm – coincidentally, about 30 horsepower over the 4.0L V8 of the M3 – and maximum torque is 317 lb-ft, available between 4000 and 6000 rpm. The hand-built engine is direct-injected and closely related to the 420-hp V-8 which powers the R8 supercar.
Top speed is electronically governed at 155 mph or 174 mph, spec’d to your order. Zero to 62 mph is accomplished in a claimed 4.6 seconds.
And as always, the following question arise: is the RS5 as good as the M3? The usual question that almost always received the same answer: M3. The UK fellows at AutoExpress decided to put the two cars in a head-to-head comparison on camera.

A nice short review...BMW is still the top dog!!!

Jay-Z & Warren Buffet Discuss Success At The 400 Forbes Summit

There are very few people from my neighborhood that make it out. Forget about being successful, I mean making it out alive or just incarcerated. I have a great friend who just came home, one of the most beautiful people you’d ever meet; he just came home from doing 13 years. And we were together every single day. Back then there was a guy by the name of Jazz who I started out with. He had a deal with EMI. He had the opportunity to go to London to record his album. I went along with him for two months. In those two months there was a sting operation and they took my friend I’m talking about, for 13 years. The only reason I wasn’t there was because I was away doing this music stuff. Had it not been for music, and music taking me out at the right time, my life could very easily have been his, very easily. - Jay-Z

Nike x Rick Ross’ “Boom” Commercial

Va$htie Kola Talks Jordan Collaboration

The other day news hit the web about the collaboration between Vashtie Kola and Jordan Brand. Keep in mind, Vashtie is the first female to ever design a shoe for Jordan Brand, and that alone is a major accomplishment. It’s also a good look for the female sneaker community because we all know that ladies don’t get the love they deserve in the shoe game. However, after this Vashtie & Jordan collab, hopefully we start to see more brands collaborate with female trendsetters.

This is a very good look and should be inspirational to all them fashionitas!!!

2010 Porsche Panamera

Porsche builds sports cars-but with the Cayenne SUV, the German automaker put the world on notice that it had more in mind. Now with the 2010 Panamera sedan, Porsche fills out its lineup with a truly spacious four-door that makes few compromises in its search for buyers seeking shattering power, great handling, and real room for four adults. It's no four-door coupe, like the Aston Martin Rapide or the Mercedes-Benz CLS, but a true "gran turismo." On sale in October 2009, the 2010 Panamera starts from a base price of $90,750 for the rear-drive Panamera S sedan, moving up to $94,750 for the all-wheel-drive Panamera 4S, and to $133,550 for the turbocharged, all-wheel-drive Panamera Turbo.
Like no other Porsche before it, the Panamera aims for a traditional sedan silhouette, for better and for worse. As the unconfirmed story goes, former Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking mandated the Panamera would have room in the backseat for his 6' 3" frame. It does-but the resulting roofline takes a compelling shape and knocks it off balance. The usual Porsche front and rear fenders frame the shape and help create a low drag coefficient, and rounded headlamps and tapered tail lamps render traditional details handsomely. The front end is low-but the rear roofline isn't, which makes the Panamera seem out of proportion, even in darker tones. As with the Bugatti Veyron, the rear end has a fastback feel that may take a few years to grow familiar. It's simply not as sleek as a Benz CLS or even four-doors like the new Jaguar XJ, and the proportions play much better on the Maserati Quattroporte.

Throwback Music Monday: Little Brother Ft Joe Scudda - Lovin' It

What ever happened to Little Brother? Would like to see a collab with J.Cole

Porsche 918 Spyder – Hybrid Super Car

After overwhelming responses during its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and Auto China in Beijing, the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG gave the “go ahead” yesterday to the mid-engined hybrid plug-in super car. Originally, just a case study on a perfect balance of traditional combustion engine and electric powered, the 918 Spyder’s 500-hp V8 engine works in tandem with 3 electric motors at a total output of 160 kW. This translates to a fuel consumption of 94 miles per gallon (mpg) and a CO2 emission of 70 grams per kilometer, or in layman’s term, an exotic car with CO2 footprint of a compact plug-in hybrid.

Development will start in in Weissach, Germany with production facility at Zuffenhausen, Germany. Details to come later this year on launch dates, product information, units availability and price range.---freshnessmag

This looks very nice!!!
