Aston Martin Vanquish Version 2.0

2013 Aston Martin Vanquish A long time ago (2001 to be precise) in a land far, far away (Gaydon, England, specifically), a man (by the name of Ian Callum) designed a car (the Vanquish) that changed the fate of a storied auto manufacturer (Aston Martin, to be exact) and forever influenced the direction of automotive design.  In 2007, the Vanquish made way for its replacement, the DBS V12.  But, now it’s back. Yep.  For 2013,...

The Ferrari Golf Collection: Ferrari Goes Golfing

Fresh from the big book of automotive crossover branding, you will soon be able to buy Ferrari golf Equipment (which is kind of ironic since Ferrari only offers one car, the FF, that can even fit a golf bag in anywhere other than the passenger seat).  The Prancing Horse has teamed up with COBRA PUMA GOLF to offer The Ferrari Golf Collection.   This partnership makes a lot of sense.  I’m sure there are a lot of Ferrari owners who...

Rare Girard-Perregaux Ferrari 250 Testarossa Edition

GP Ferrari 250 TR Edition #13/50 Ferrari is no stranger to teaming up with watch brands for some really cool co-branded timepieces.  Their current partner, Hublot, recently launched the Big Bang Ferrari Magic Gold, which, despite the name, is one of (I think) 2012’s coolest watches.  Before Hublot, it was Panerai.  Perhaps, though, the most interesting and understated limited Ferrari editions came when the maker of the Prancing...

2013 SRT Viper

At the 2012 New York Auto Show, Dodge, and its kick-ass in-house tuning arm SRT, decided to unveil the new 2013 SRT Viper.  After taking a few years off, the Viper is back and more bad-ass than ever.  The new Viper has an updated design that still harkens back to the original back in the early nineties.  The new carbon fiber roof, hood and decklid and aluminum doors make the car very light.  This allows the 640 horse, 600 ft-lb of...
