Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero

Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero $470,500: The Legend Lives On!

The Jaguar E-type Concept Zero is the successful marriage of the Jaguar I-PACE electric crossover technology blended with the most beautiful car ever constructed, the E-Type. With a starring role in the recent royal marriage, Prince Harry chose to drive the silver-blue Jaguar from St. George’s Chapel to the wedding reception at Windsor. The E-Type Zero is tasked with saving the classic car by transforming it into an electric motor vehicle thereby rendering it future-proof, in a world without gasoline, so beware Tesla!

Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero

Debuting last September at the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest in London, the E-Type Zero was created from a 1968 Series 1.5 E-type body and chassis. The original 4.2-liter XK inline-six cylinder engine with its four-speed manual transmission was removed and placed into storage. The replacement merely is labelled XK330-4 and contains a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The electric motor is a new 220-kW (295-hp) AC electric motor, with new a gear system replacing the original manual transmission. The sports car is capable of a respectable 100 mph. A fully charged battery will provide 170 miles of uninterrupted driving, and recharging it takes from six to seven hours.

Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero

No expense has been spared TL create an authentic Jaguar style full of quality and classic features. The wood trimmed steering wheel with steel spokes is also retained. The instruments and dashboard have been updated to reflect modern technological advances. There is now a stylish, moulded carbon-fibre assembly, which contains the digital instruments as well as the climate control and entertainment system. Efficient LED light sources have replaced the traditional inner headlamps, while the outer lamp casing remains faithful to the original. The purchase price that has been attached to the Jaguar E-Type Zero is a cool £350,000 ($470,500). The Zero will ensure the legend of the Jaguar E-Type will live on and continue to impress new generations of classic car enthusiasts.

Rolex watch

Rolex Rainbow Daytona Everose 2018: US$95,000

The 2018 Rolex Rainbow Daytona is available in a stunningly beautiful shade of Everose Gold for the very first time! The opulent and ultra m-exclusive Rainbow Daytona chronograph was previously available in white or yellow gold. Rolex’s patented formula of gold blends perfectly with the precious, multi-coloured gemstones that take the place of regular Daytona hour markers.

Rolex Rainbow Daytona

Everose is Rolex’s proprietary blend of 18-Karat pink gold combining pure gold, copper, and platinum elements. The platinum content ensures the vibrancy of the gold never loses its warm hue even with exposure to the elements, and this is achieved by locking in the natural pink tint of the copper.

The Everose offers buyers a contemporary twist on an iconic and classic design which takes the creative opulence of the brand further than ever before. The timepiece is magnificently decorated with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, and the face dial features eleven elongated sapphire hour markers. The chronograph counters are made of pink Gold Crystals, which match the Everose 18ct gold case creating a shimmering effect.

Rolex Rainbow Daytona

The 2018 Rolex Rainbow Daytona Everose oscillator utilises an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, which is insensitive to magnetic fields thereby providing excellent stability with extreme temperature variations. The Rainbow Daytona is a genuinely excellent Rolex chronometer that guarantees a rate of accuracy of between −2 /+2 seconds per day, which is more than twice an official chronometer.

Rolex has long been considered an opulent and luxury brand, and this latest addition does justice to the brand’s legacy. The level of workmanship and the exclusivity of the natural and rare materials used combine to come up with one of the most magnificent timepieces ever created. Rolex has done it again, keeping standards high and maintaining a stellar reputation.

Luxury Tamburini T12

Tamburini T12 Motorcycle $1 million

The Tamburini T12 super motorcycle is a dream machine that fully justifies its hefty $1 million price tag. Produced in the San Marino facility, only twelve models were ever created, which means the bike is extremely limited and exclusive. The motorcycle was created by the famous and legendary motorcycle designer Massimo Tamburini, just before he passed away in 2013. Weighing in at 154 kg, and capable of extremely high speeds. The official launch of the T12 motorcycle was held in Monaco only recently, causing a sensation. Massimo Tamburini was, of course, responsible for establishing the Bimota motorbike, and he also designed the iconic Ducati 916, as well as the impressive road-devil that is the MV Agusta F4. His credentials are impressive, and his outstanding designs speak for themselves.

The T12, as it is known, was completed by Andrea, Massimo’s son, after his father’s demise. The T12 is a tribute to Massimo, and Andrea recently commented that to show his father’s final creation, something he put his whole life into, was the best way to pay tribute to him, and honour his name.

Few motorcycles can even come close to the T12. This limited edition model is the absolute pinnacle of motorcycle luxury, dashing good looks, and a high-performance engine. Owning one of the twelve models produced would surely be a biker’s dream come true! Not to mention the increase in value due to its exclusivity and rarity. The sheer pleasure of flying down the highway at top speed can only be imagined unless you own a Tamburini T12 that is!

Luxury sailing yacht

Custom Built Super Yacht $450 million designed by Philippe Starck

The striking looks and soft curves of this motor sailing yacht are a work of art. The ultimate superyacht was custom built in Kiel, Germany, and designed by Philippe Starck at the cost of over $450 million. What makes this yacht so unique besides the innovative and futuristic design? For a start, the three masts are taller than the Statue of Liberty, at 91 meters each, and at 143 meters long, the superyacht is the eighth longest private yacht in the world. With a comfortable cruising speed of up to 16 knots and a top speed of 21 knots, the yacht glides swiftly and silently.

While little is known about the interior, there can be little doubt that it is a luxurious and spectacular affair, with no expense spared on creating a floating palace. One can expect to find bespoke furniture, state of the art electronics, and a military grade navigation system. There are sure to be the latest high-grade security systems, external cameras and even a weapons defence system!

Luxury sailing yacht

The external design is vaguely reminiscent of a submarine, with the only difference being the three massive sailing masts. The yacht glides through the water hardly creating a ripple, and the rather high top speed is impressive for a boat this size. Its ghostly pale grey colour creates a moving dark shadow as it sails swiftly across the waves. The top speed is attained by the wind from the three massive sails, combined with the powerful in-built engines.

The custom superyacht pushes the boundaries of design, technology, and creativity. The result is this impressive, futuristic and innovative sea craft like no other on the seven seas! The superyacht has a unique, aerodynamic appearance and offers something entirely different to all the superyachts in existence. The boat was commissioned by a Russian billionaire who wanted a yacht that would really stand out and make a strong statement. That it certainly has!
