Conceived as a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Automobili Lamborghini – the ‘ Lamborghini Veneno’ – presented at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show – is a unique limited edition model, which will only see three produced worldwide.  Featuring a 6.5 liter 750 horsepower V12 engine, the fighting bull can launch from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds when coupled with its 7-speed ISR Racing Transmission – achieving a top speed of 355 km/h.  Weighing just under 1,450 kgs – 125 kilograms lighter than the Aventador – the new development extensively utilizes carbon-fiber materials, with the complete chassis produced as a CFRP monocoque, as with the exterior.  Laid out for perfect airflow and downforce, the front end works as a large aerodynamic wing: large channels guide the air to the outlets in the hood and windshield, as well as to the front wheels. Angular Y-shaped headlamps reach well into the fenders as well as the scissor doors.

Lamborghini Egoista Concept For 50th Anniversary

Powered by a 600 horsepower 5.2-liter V10 engine, the lamborghini egoista celebrates the company’s 50th anniversary with a design by walter da silva, the head of designer of the volkswagen group. The single-seater concept is characterized by two fundamental aspects: its architecture, and the materials used. The cockpit, designed like a tailor-made suit for the driver, is a removable section which, once combined with the rest of the vehicle, creates a perfect technical, mechanical and aerodynamic unit. Influenced by the world of aviation – specifically an apache helicopter – the cockpit can be ejected in an emergency. The cockpit, made completely of  carbon fiber and aluminum, represents a sort of survival cell, allowing the driver to isolate and protect themselves from external elements, they kept an eye on the future when designing the egoista, with the idea that its cockpit could have been taken from a jet aircraft and integrated into a road vehicle, to provide a different travel option.

Marc Jacobs Designed Coca-Cola Cans

Coca-Cola has launched a limited-edition collection of Diet Coke cans designed by their creative director Marc Jacobs to fete the soda brand’s anniversary in Europe. The trio of cans pays tribute to the fashion decades of the 1980s, 90s and 2000s, with each silhouette created to incarnate the woman of her time. Inspired by the bright lights of Broadway and Radio City Music Hall where the zero-calorie drink first made its global debut in 1982, Jacobs sets a tuxedoed woman against a motif of butterfly bowties for the 1980s, for instance. The 1990s were marked by glamour and “sartorial audacity,” represented by a dame clad in a fuchsia frock, long gloves, stiletto heels and extravagant felt hat. And, according to Jacobs, the first decade of 2000 can be characterized by a collision of sporty chic energy, incarnated by a silhouette sporting a bob, geometric stripes and a houndstooth bikini bottom. Jacobs takes over from Jean Paul Gaultier who served as creative director for Diet Coke in 2012. The Marc Jacob cans are now available across Europe.

originally presented as the ‘Porsche 901 classic’ at the 1963 Frankfurt motor show – eventually renamed to the ‘911’, as french car maker Peugeot objected to Porsche using any three digit number where the middle number was 0 – marks its 50th anniversary with the introduction of the ‘2013 Porsche Carrera 911 4S’. To commemorate ‘the most successful sports car ever produced – of which over 820,000 were sold’, the official Porsche museum in Stuttgart will host four special exhibitions, including an early model 911 turbo coupe, 1981 911 cabriolet concept, a 1997 GT1 version supercar and a pre-series type 754 T7  – leading to the final ’50 years of the Porsche 911 exhibition which will be hosted from june 4th until september 29th 2013. When the ‘911’ was officially launched to the market in 1964, it boasted an air-cooled, six-cylinder boxer engine that developed 128 hp capable of reaching a top speed of 131 mph (211 km/h).

Omega Seamaster James Bond 50th Anniversary Watch.


To celebrate fifty years of James Bond films, Omega is releasing a special update of  their Seamaster Diver 300m James Bond watch.  The watch offers Omega’s caliber 2507 co-axial movement, with the winding rotor designed to look like a bullet. It’s also inscribed with ’50 years of James Bond.’  The James Bond 50th Anniversary watch has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and  36 mm. The 36mm case size has a diamond index at the 7 o’clock position.  The 41 mm version is being produced in a limited edition of 11’007 pieces and the 36 mm version in a limited edition of 3’007 pieces.  No mention of price as yet, but as both a classic watch and a limited edition, this is unlikely be one of the cheaper watches on the market.  Interestingly, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series — though fifty years ago Bond was not wearing an Omega at all.  The classic timepiece has been worn by 007 in every adventure since GoldenEye, when it replaced the Rolex Submariner.
