Luxury at Top Speed

After Conversion

Before ConversionCreated from a Ferrari 360 Modena, like the one shown at right, the limo shown above is the fasted limousine in the world. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and has a top speed of around 170 mph. Wow, that would be a trip on the AutoBaun! And, much better than a Hummer for a formal date!

The Modena was chopped in half and stretched by 9.5 ft with a section of hand-built carbon fiber, resulting in a 20 ft-long car that only seats eight people. But it is set to claim two Guinness World Records as the fastest limousine and the longest Ferrari in the world.

Got 2 million Dollars on the side? Buy yours now..

Natalia SLS 2Dimora Motorcar says the Natalia SLS 2 sport luxury sedan is the “world’s most luxurious, expensive, and technologically advanced creation.” It better be, with a pricetag of about $2 million dollars.

The car comes with 16 cyclinders that can explode to 60 MPH in less than 4 seconds. For speed demons, it does a staggering 300 MPH when you put the pedal to the metal. The horsepower in the engine is an eye popping 1200.

Lamborghini LP640 limited edition Reventon – If anything is wrong with it, its the name, they should have called it after the F16 or the F-22 fighter jets. 640bhp 6.5-litre powerplant promises 650hp, 660Nm of torque and a 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds. This machine is extraordinary.

Fixation on Feeling Mobile

House on LegsThe need to feel mobile is part of human character. Perhaps one reason behind this is that all our ancestors were on the move, migrating to other continents to get away from Big Brother or simply on the move to find food. No fight or flight here…just the need to feel mobile…and perhaps take the comforts of home with you or…not!
