Lambos, Porsches & Bentleys…

YUM!

Just hearing those names makes my mouth water with pure opulent greed and longing. Ooh…but some cars are just soooo gorgeous!

Now boys, I am not one for talk about horse power and v8 vs. v6 engines…my dream car just has to be sexy as hell, and the cars showcased at the Beijing Motor Show 2012 fullfil all this and so much more.

Whereas most motor shows over the last few years have focused mainly on being green and other earth-friendly hybrid innovations, Beijing was all about explicit power and unmatched extravagance…well, the good parts atleast.

It seems the latest super car to jump on the SUV train is Lamborghini with the 600hp Urus. Its still just a concept but come 2017, when they make them available, lets hope you’ll have saved up enough money to make this 4×4 more than just a concept.

Another super-SUV in the pipelines is based on Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo but with hectic modifications  (twin-turbo V8 etc.)

Now if you’re looking for the highest in quality, look no further than the Rolls-Royce, which aims to stimulate all of your senses with the Ghost Six Senses concept. Walnut and leather-lined interior, and upgraded stereo system, a bespoke luggage set and etched champagne flutes are some of the unique standards that come with the beauty.

Mercedes with its compact CSC concept…

I adore this super cute VW Beetle Convertible! The E-Bugster concept is an electric car with a folded roof that I can already see myself driving down to Cape Town in December. 🙂

How can I speak about the most gorgeous of cars without mentioning the Range Rover Evoque?  This is the limited edition model designed with the help of Victoria Beckham.

To help celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee this year, Bentley built these limited edition Mulsannes, one for each year she’s spent on the throne. I’m talking about gold-stitched leather and veneered tables with a design depicting the royal carriage on them. The car even comes with cushions to make the seats more comfortable… You don’t get more opulent. There’s only 60 of these babies so don’t hesitate!

And then ofcourse, there was the Jaguar. The long wheelbase XJ Ultimate is targeted at the international jet set and includes such wonders as fully adjustable rear seats, a champagne chille and a 15-channel 20-speaker surround sound stereo…oh yeaaaa…

To end things off is one of the most adventurous concept cars to date. Created by Chery, the @Ant is designed to mimick a road train system by allowing cars to connect to each other to save fuel and then decouple at will. The cars communicated with each other to find out which ones are heading in the same direction and then link up to share the workload. Up to ten of them can connect in a single train, and with the fuel prices being as they are, brilliant idea, no?

For the love of beauty. ❤

Photoshoot III

The third and final instalment in our Photoshoot Friday…(awww 😦 )

I would like to show you what Nicole Richie has done with her life. Following the immense flop that was her public persona after the reality show/Paris Hilton bff/bulimia saga of her life, she got some sense, cleaned herself up, got married, had a coupla babies and generally became someone you could like.

Her’s the mother of two in a more mature look for Flare Magazine…

         

 

Next we’ve got Emily Atack of Inbetweeners fame. The 22 year old was catapulted into the limelight in the British comedy series, but I bet you have never seen her look this sexy. Posing for FHM, Emily spoke about her rise to fame, her new role in a film called Get Lucky. Check her out….

         

 

Finally….

Agent Provocateur, the makers of all things naughty AND nice… have launched a new line, along with a new face. Trying to create the sensuality and allure of the seventies, they got French model Mylene Jampanoi to sell their undies in their ‘Emmanuelle’ inpired campaign.

The new Fifi collection ranges from 65 Euros for briefs to 695 for a rose-printed silk gown.

Check it out…
