The 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG is the first independent design from AMG and the new flagship for the entire company. As a modern re-interpretation of the 300SL, it’s also a return to the fast and elegant Mercedes of old. This car not only looks good, but it packs a ton of horsepower and performance to back the claims being made that it’s a true super-car. Heavily modified over the standard AMG V8, this 6.3 breathes much freer thanks to an all-new intake system, more aggressive valve timing, tubular steel headers and a de-throttled exhaust. In addition to the 571 HP at 6,800 RPM, it now develops 479 Lb-Ft of torque at 4,750 RPM, delivering high-RPM power with low-RPM torque. This all contributes to a reported 3.8-second 0-to-60 MPH time, and a top speed of 197 MPH. Paired to to the heart of this AMG monster is a duel clutch, 7 speed, paddle shifting transmission that makes lightning fast shifts at an astonishing 100 milli-seconds. So, not only does this car pack a punch, it’s equally gorgeous. The lines of the body are beautiful and the cockpit is a work of art. Leave it to AMG to combine brute force with absolute luxury. Ladies and gentleman, introducing the 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG, a definite blast from the past.
There’s a lot to love about the new Pagani Zonda R, starting with the Mercedes/AMG V12 bolted directly onto the rear of the chassis. The 6.0 liter monster outputs 750 horsepower, enough to take the car to 60 mph in less than 2.7 seconds on race tires, among the fastest acceleration of anything on four wheels, anywhere. The exhaust note is phenomenal and the sound going down the straight at the Nurburgring is second to none. Also, the non painted carbon fiber body is absolutely gorgeous. This is one hell of a race-ready exotic and it better be for 1.7 million. The new race ready Pagani Zonda R, it’s worth every cent.
Saturday 17,2010 was a great night for Lamborghini Energy Drink. Making the event one of a kind was the Lamborghini Club of Los Angeles, DJ XCILIS with his own brand of mash-up hits, Teteo Tequila, and of course our gorgeous EvilStar Girls!!! The turn out was great with numerous Lamborghini’s in attendance, lots of beautiful women, and plenty of Lamborghini Energy getting mixed with Teteo Tequila. Thanks to all for making it a night to remember.
For as much as I enjoyed the recent release from world renown DJ/Producer Tiesto, I am overwhelmed with the mass appeal it actually has potential for. It is truly a testament to how much electronic music has truly crossed over into the mainstream market. This has been apparent for years in countries abroad, but shockingly, it’s until now, America is finally catching up with the trend. Most of this could be due to the crumbling infrastructure of the formally all powerful “Record Industry” and the paradigm shift leaning toward a more independent distribution of music. Yet to see more familiar names like Nelly Furtatdo, and Tegan and Sara as collaborators is exciting, but I begin to wonder where all this is going when you start to see more and more collaborations just for the sake of having collaborations. It has been announced Tiesto is to be collaborating with even more mainstream artist like the Three 6 Mafia, Sean Kingston, and Flo Rida. This is just my opinion but I have heard the track “Feel It” and wasn’t very impressed. I still have hope though, through their methods of promoting the track they have released a means for aspiring remixers to take hold of parts of the track via Beatport.com and I anticipate it might generate some positive results but we’ll just have to see.
