Les légendes de Bugatti

10470623_760852877300327_8212893169531024843_oBugatti, a brand with a rich history in the car industry, is celebrating its heroes.

Next to the McLaren, from my last article, Bugatti was also well represented at Pebble Beach 2014. There, they showed their latest car from the 6 legends-series : The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Ettore Bugatti .

They made 6 tribute cars for persons which have played a crucial role in the history and which have helped creating the mystique of the brand Bugatti .

1 . Jean-Pierre Wimille

5. Black Bess

6.  Ettore Bugatti

Each model is based on a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. The amount of power from one of those Veyrons is 1200 bhp. The estimated price for a legend-serie is around 2 million euros

Some of the cars have already found a new owner. For example this Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti has been spotted in London and it’s owned by a guy from Qatar. 2014-08-22 23.05.10

Next to the cars, Bugatti also introduced a clothing-line based on each model.  I feel sorry for everyone who wants to buy those clothes because you can only get that outfit if you already own a legend-serie.

When you think it can’t get any better? Meet the McLaren P1 GTR

mclarenp1gtrfront3_4Having read my blog, some of you might know that my favorite cars at this moment is the mighty McLaren P1.

During Monterey Car Week 2014 at Pebble Beach, McLaren presented the brand new McLaren P1 GTR. The purpose of making this lightweight version of the already superlight McLaren P1 is to amuse the rich people on the track.

The car’s power was increased to 1000 PS of 986 bhp from the motorsport-optimised 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and lightweight electric motor. Shortly said: It’s quite powerful.

They have one clear goal with making this car. It’s creating the best driver’s car in the world on track.

Next to all the other “standard” McLarens this one will be built and maintained by MSO: McLaren Special Operations.

A great experience

2014-05-10 18.17.45

Last week I did my last days of training at Monserez Harelbeke. It was a great experience where I got to know some very nice people.

During 2 months I got in touch with a variety of  clients. It was very fascinating to see how everything works as a salesman.  My tasks were very diverged. It could be delivering cars but also calling to possible clients.

The perfect recipe to have an awesome training is doing it  surrounded by nice cars and stimulating colleagues .

Enjoy some pictures I took during my training.

 

Living the dream

Jay Leno is a man who’s living the dream I think.

He  is known for his incredible car collection but also for his talk show: The Tonight Show.
It’s a good thing that someone like Jay Leno can give his opinion about a brand new car because it’s very good advertisement for the company, in this case:McLaren.

Jay Leno's Garage

A few weeks ago he was lucky enough to receive his brand new McLaren P1 and now he posted a review about this car on his blog/Youtube.

Supercar gathering in Hong Kong

There are a few places on earth where Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s are rather common. One of these places is definitely Hong Kong.

Last weekend a few supercars and hypercars were photographed during a meeting.

2014-04-28 19.40.20I think the cost price of all these modern supercars together is never seen before in one picture. Only the 5 cars in front are worth more than 10 million euros. You have to know it’s very rare to see a Koenigsegg or a Pagani in real life but on this picture it’s “normal”.

Koenigsegg

A few articles ago I wrote something about the hundredth Koenigsegg ever build. It was made for a very loyal client in Hong Kong. Next to the green Agera S, the Hundra is also on that picture. 10272595_788091087882466_580628447794715584_o

Pagani

Also Pagani is well presented on that picture. With 2 Huayra’s and one limited Zonda Cinque roadster. 10317592_619244331478244_3839364650736411516_o

Pagani and Koenigsegg have already sold a lot of cars to this region so somethimes they make a one-off model for them, for example the Hundra.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a special administrative region in China known for his very expensive skyline.  Next to that it is also known for its wealth.

The best serie or not the best serie? That’s the question.

Next to cars I love to watch some good series.
During the last 3 years I started watching a lot of them and as with cars, you like one more than another.

Here is a list of all the series I’ve watched during the last 3 years.

  • Blue Mountain State
  • Suits
  • Game of Thrones
  • Arrow
  • Under the Dome
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Breaking Bad
  • Top Gear
  • The Big Bang Theorie
  • Two and a Half Man

If you are looking for a good serie. Make sure that you watch one of them.

I must say I like them all but there are 3 I’d suggest to everyone. These are 3 series that are still actively made.

1. The Tomorrow People ( IMDB 7.5/10)
IMDB The Tomorrow People
MV5BMjEyMDA4NjY0Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDgzNDIxMDE@._V1__SX1217_SY838_

It is a story about several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers. The call it the 3 T’s: Telepathy, telekinesis and teleportation. Together they work for a secret organization named Ultra.
they call themselves The Tomorrow People.

2. Arrow (IMDB 8.2/10)
IMDB Arrow
MV5BMTYzNDYxMTkzOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODUzMjMxMDE@._V1__SX1217_SY881_

It’s a story about a spoiled billionaire playboy named Oliver Queen who was lost for 5 years on a hellish island afther his boat was lost at sea. He returned as a changed man with only one mission, to honor his fathers memory as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.

3. Game of Thrones (IMDB 9.5/10)
IMDB Game of Thrones
MV5BMTk0NDg4NjQ5N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzkzNTgyMTE@._V1__SX1217_SY838_

It is about seven noble families who fight to win control of the mythical land of Westeros.

Maybe the best serie ever?

These are the 3 best series that are running now on television, but last year I finished a serie which was very exciting to watch and I’d also suggest it to everyone. The beginning may be a bit strange but wait until you get to the last season…

Breaking Bad (IMDB 9.6/10)
IMDB Breaking Bad
MV5BMTU2MTgzMzQxNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODg4NTQ3OQ@@._V1__SX1217_SY838_

Picture of the day

2014-04-06 13.40.37

It’s a very rare sight to see a Koenigsegg in person. But for the people who went to Spring Event last weekend they had the chance to see 2 of them. The estimated price of these 2 cars is around 4 million euros! Quite astonishing I think !

I also found this cool video of these 2 cars driving on their way back to Germany.

A few years back I was lucky enough to see a Koenigsegg in person and I must say the design is even more mind blowing in real life than on a picture.
