What the **** is going on here!? See, I was brought up in the Bronx, which means I really get that being a total-bronx bad ass means having a chromed out Gixxer 1000 with a stretch and a fat rear tire so you can do long rolling burnouts. I get it. The “exotic” bikes were and still are very much left alone. Now I’ve seen customized cafe style Ducati’s but nothing to this extreme. Don’t get me wrong I think these bikes are beyond awesome looking, but we all know there are a group of Ducati loyalists plotting their revenge as this is being written. The looks just can’t be denied with an already beautiful Duci being dropped on its stomach and stretched out to next year. Oh god this is just too GOOD! Any one else would LOVE to see more of this?
btw, you guys peep the rear brake setup in-between the wheel and the frame?!?!?!?!? Explain!!
Back guys! I really am sorry for that break in posts. Like I’ve said before, we’ve got a lot of planning for this year to not only give you better content, but some awesome products.
This past weekend I went with a friend to a private event to show the new Aston Martin Vanquish. Of course, being surrounded by millionaires, whipping out a dsrl just didn’t seem natural. So I just blended in for the day, talking about yachts and gold plated caviar, or what ever millionaires talk about. The Vanquish, a beautiful full carbon bodied sex machine that sounded just as good as it looked. It’s hard to explain the awesome exhaust note, but I highly suggest visiting a dealer and bugging them until you get them to turn on one. But enough run-on sentences. As we were checking the car out the real surprised walked in the door, Mr Ralph Lauren himself. Being a super fashion addict, I was star struck. Fully clad in Polo sweats his visit was about 10 minutes long (and I’m sure he order three Aston’s in that time). We went out to check what he decided to drive that day and was in love with his selection. A uber-limited white Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0. A seriously rare car for a equally rare appearance for one of the greatest designers. We happen to catch him on his way out, chatted for a minute and managed to snap a pic of him getting in the Porsche.
The best iPhone photography I can provide!
As I get older, there are a lot of cars that I grew up on, that really stand out as “must own”s. Not so much the typical popular classic, but these odd yet so period specific exotics that not everyone would run to. I’m pretty sure the Testarossa is a car most people can see and know it’s a Ferrari. It was just such a standout car. I remember the first time seeing one and was completely floored at just how wide the car was. It was just so odd seeing it parallel parked next to “normal” cars. Today I definitely see it as classic in which the car really speaks for itself. I wonder if the Testarossa will ever gain popularity again.
Drift pig that is. This car caught my eye for a couple reasons. Firstly its owned by a Japanese drift and was built just for that reason, to drift. Secondly, the Ferrari 456 was one of those odd exotic cars that I grew up loving. A big car by Ferrari’s standard yet still a performer. It still is hard to get used to seeing Bride’s in a Ferrari, but function>form in this case. I really want to see how this car does sideways. Such a different beast all together. The question is, how much is this expensive exotic going to be beat. We shall see.
