The exterior makeover included a new and sizable carbon fiber wing. The bonnet has an exciting design, and the overall style is smoother and more aerodynamic than its predecessor. The sizable exterior vent for heat extraction gives the front an aggressive, imposing look. The raised center contributes to the sporty style and hints at the power under the hood.

The speedometer verification procedure that the GT500 must follow indicates the impressive speed capabilities of the GT sports car. The features will include three distinct and bespoke driving modes. They include Weather mode, Launch Control and Drag Strip mode. Carbon-ceramic brake pads are also an option.

There are two choices of gearboxes, a six-speed manual transmission and a new 10-speed auto gearbox which was co-developed by Ford and GM. The car even sports old-style headlights in keeping with the Mustang tradition. That will keep enthusiasts and purists happy. The new 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a legendary car eagerly awaited by Mustang fans around the world. Who can forget Steve McQueen racing through the streets of San Francisco with his Ford Mustang GT Fastback in the movie Bullett?

Lexus Sport Yacht Concept – A Reality in 2019

The Lexus Sports Yacht concept will become a reality in 2019. When first announced way back in 2017, both motor enthusiasts and yacht lovers were salivating at the prospect. Parent company Toyota Motor Corp. confirmed their plans to build a 65-foot sports flybridge cruiser yacht. The boat would expand and improve on the 42-foot open sports cruiser design, yet retain all its positive qualities and outstanding features. The new yacht will be more luxurious, with plenty of room and a higher level of specs. The main difference will be the performance powered by some leading engines taken from superb high-performance motorcars.

The vessel’s hull, inner structure and superstructure are constructed with hand-laid, carbon-fibre fabric which is vacuum-infused with a two-part polyurethane resin. The Lexus Sports Yacht concept is powered by two marinised versions of the Lexus motor engines as used in the high-performance Lexus RC F coupe and new LC 500 grand tourer. They are high performance 5.0L V8 engines.

The sports yacht carries eight passengers in comfort providing them with high-speed luxury and a high-tech multimedia sound and entertainment system along with beautifully crafted, hand-made wooden and leather interiors. The layout will include luxury staterooms below deck with additional space to entertain up to 15 guests in style.

It includes a brand new Mobility Services Platform (MSPF) providing security, smartphone integration with remote diagnostics. Maintenance and other support services come with the deal.

With specifications and exact pricing still to be confirmed, orders are already being taken for delivery in 2019 in the USA, and 2020 in Japan.

Tudor David Becham

New Tudor #BornToDare Spirit Embodied with Ambassador David Beckham

Tudor’s unveiled BornToDare campaign takes on a new, modern day twist. BornToDare goodwill ambassador David Beckham was recently photographed by renowned fashion photographer David Sims.

The new Tudor BornToDare campaign by David Sims depicts David Beckham in a raw, emotive and classy mood in keeping with the authenticity and unmistakable masculinity of the brand new Tudor BornToDare campaign. Also on offer are a series of intimate videos in which David Beckham, an avid watch collector and respected Tudor Ambassador, reflects deeply on times he embodied the spirit of Born To Dare! How did it all start? As far back as 1953, Tudor watches were tested by Rolex, to ensure their robustness. The tests were, and still, are performed under the harshest conditions. Thus, The Oyster Pearl was born.

David Beckham

The tests of endurance involve extreme conditions like exposing the timepiece to pneumatic drill vibrations for 30 hours and 252 hours of excavation by hand, as worn by a miner at work. The watch is subjected to a stonecutter for as long as 3 months. Additionally, it is worn for a whole month by a worker on riveting metal girders upon a building construction site. The watch is also worn by a motorbike racer for more than 1,000 miles, and a particular emphasis is placed on the massive strength of these Tudor watches, along with their exact precision, super-efficient winding and waterproof quality in extreme weather conditions. This is the spirit Tudor’s BornToDare embodies and David Beckham is the perfect example of that ethos. The BornToDare mindset portrays the rich history of Tudor and everything it stands for.

Tudor

Ever since 1954, when Tudor released the brand’s very first diver’s watch, aptly named the Oyster Prince Submariner, the brand has been steadily solidifying its reputation. The original, hand-built, tool-watch was designed to fulfil extreme criteria including durability, reliability, spot-on precision and 100% waterproofness, with a realistic and reasonable price tag. Today, Tudor watches are the instruments of first choice for professionals, elite soldiers and individuals who have achieved the seemingly impossible on land, ice, in the air or under the water, with a Tudor upon their wrists.
