Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S

Hello everyone! If you love cars, you probably got this question from someone: “If you had one car to buy, which car would it be?” I’ve been thinking about this question a lot, and I found the answer in September 2007. When Maserati reveiled the GT S version of the Quattroporte! If I would choose one car, it would be this one. It’s perfect in every single way. This car has a combination of tons of space, comfortable luxury, beautiful design, enormous power, and Italian passion. How can you argue with that? 😉

The Quattroporte has a long history, which starts in 1963 when the Quattroporte I came out.Of course, everything changed in the Italian saloon since then. Maserati, however, didn’t change one thing since the 1960s; and that was the purpose of the Quattroporte. The first Quattroporte in 1963 had a 4.1 L V8 producing 256 bhp and could easily do 200 km/h. This is why the Quattroporte could be said to be the first car that was purpose built for grand touring. Since the first Quattroporte, Maserati kept perfecting the beauty of this incredible piece of engineering.

The 2004 Quattroporte V became the perfect car that replaced even the Audi A8. A perfect car for businessmen who had children by any chance. At this point, I think that the Quattroporte V is very good car, but it was a bit low on…fun. And that’s perfectly understandable! Since the Quattroporte isn’t a sports car; it’s a luxurious saloon for grand touring. BUT! In 2007 Maserati introduced a pumped up, louder, and more exciting Quattroporte. The GT S.

The base Quattroporte V has a 4.2L V8 with 6-speed transmission and RWD developing 400 horsepowers. It can go from 0 to 100 in 5.5 seconds, and has a top speed of 265 km/h.

The Maserati Quattrporte GT S has a 4.7L V8 with the same transmission and RWD.The GT S has 433 bhp and can go from 0 to 100 in 5.3 seconds up to 185 km/h. Its fitted with a sport suspension, 20 inch wheels, and larger rear tires for better handling. The brakes received iron and aluminum rotors for more fade resistance. This doesn’t sound like much of a difference…until we get to the traction control. You see, they perfected the traction control, which means it’s still there, but it let’s you go wild without killing yourself! 😀 All this combined, makes this car incredibly tail-happy, extremely responsive, and dynamic. In a word: FUN.

This is why I’d rather choose this car over the A8 or the 7-series BMW, and that’s the reason why this is one of my favorite cars.

Ferrari 458 Italia

Hi everyone! Today, I would like to write about a well known Transformers character. Mirage. Or in other words, the Ferrari 458 Italia. A lot of people saw that great movie, so I thought of providing some information that proves that this car isn’t just a pretty face from Hollywood. Now, if you’re a car enthusiast like me, you probably know that since the 458 came out, the big question was “Is it better than the F430?” In my opinion think it’s the most beautiful and quite simply the best Ferrari ever! And I think that many people agree with me. It’s not a surprise that it won over 30 international awards, including “Best Performance Engine” and “Best Engine Above 4 Litres”, and BBC Top Gear’s “Supercar of the Year” and “Car of the Year Awards”.

Personally I think that the Ferrari F430 is an amazing car. But after I saw Top Gear’s episode on the Italia and checked some information on the Wikipedia, I immediately changed my definition of amazing. I think, and so does a lot of people, that the Ferrari 458 Italia replaces the F430. It’s not only better looking than the F430, but it has a better engine, thus faster in every single way, better handling and aerodynamics thanks to its special designed body. It does cost more than the F430, and it does have an idiotic dashboard which doesn’t show you how fast you’re going, but who cares if this car destroys and humiliates the F430 and a lot of cars in its class! Plus, you can have huge amount of fun in this car! Oh, and it only has a trunk big enough for a sandwich….but I don’t think that anyone would use this terrific car for shopping! 😉

The 458’s mid-engine is a 4.5 L V8 with 562 hp. It has a dual-clutch 7 speed gearbox similar to the Ferrari California. This Ferrari’s performance is staggering! It goes from naught to a 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and its top speed is over 325 km/h! But Road & Track recorded a 0-100 in 3 seconds flat!!! I think that is just amazing! So I think that all this information about the 458 answers the big question. 🙂

I still think that the F430 is a great car. But the 458….is…how do I say? If the F430 is Tony Stark, than the 458 is Iron Man! Or….It’s Brad Pitt with Angelina Jolie face.

And if I still didn’t convince you, check out the picture below.

So this is my opinion on the Ferrari 458 Italia, and I’m very interested in your opinion as well! Just to see if anyone actually likes the F430 better than the 458. 😉 And finally, I would like to ask you to leave a request next to your comment, as to which car should I review next time. 🙂 Thanks!

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

Okay, so today I’ve decided to write about the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. There is one main reason why I picked this car: this is one of my dream car. This car gives me goosebumps when I think about the raw power of this monster!

Its rivals are the BMW M3 and Audi RS4, but neither of those cars are near as exciting, powerful, or loud as the C63 AMG. True, the C63 has enough torque to knock a planet out its orbit, and because of that it’s hard to keep it in a straight line. So the M3 might be a faster car than the Merc but it’s much more boring as well. 😉 The power of the C63’s V8 engine is enormous! Its 6208cc V8 develops 451bhp at 6800rpm and 442lb ft at 5000. Thanks to this endless power, Mauro Calo set the world record by continuously drifting for more than 2.3 kilometers! So this proves that this car is more exciting than the BMW or the Audi.

The C63 AMG is simpler as well! It even has an automatic gearbox! It doesn’t even have any M, S, or even AMG buttons! It does have an ESP button, but that’s when things get bad. You see this car’s traction control is either on or off. Which is great! Because even a grandmother can choose without having to have an IT qualification. BUT! When it’s on, it’s constantly interfering every time you touch the gas paddle.

This car is perfect for anything whatsoever! Think about it! It has 4 useable seats for your children, a trunk for shopping, and when you really want to set free the animal under the bonnet, there is a 6.2 L V8 at your service!

I think this car is absolutely beautiful! Mostly because it’s surprisingly subtle. It’s not as subtle as an RS4, but you have to really look at this car before realizing the AMG badge at the back, and the 6.3 badge on the sides. I know, you mostly hear this car before looking at it, but the looks are incredibly simple.

Okay. So this is my opinion about this beast. I’m really interested in your opinions on this one, because this car is a major argument starter when it comes to people who like Audi or BMW better. 🙂 So please leave a comment on this car, and enjoy the pictures!

BMW i8 Concept

Hey guys! So the other day I was visiting Chicago, and believe it or not, I saw the 2014 BMW i8 Concept! It was gorgeous! So I thought about it…and I realized that I don’t really know much about the BMW i8! So I looked up some information and specs about this amazing car, and it was quite surprising!

So the 2014 BMW i8 Concept. One sentence? The most progressive and innovative sports car of its time.

Its plug-in hybrid concept combines the electric drive system from the BMW i3 Concept with a high-performance three-cylinder engine that has 220 hp and 300 Nm at the rear. At first, it didn’t sound so good. I mean, 3 cylinder engine? But the more and more I read about this car, the better it got! This perfect combination of a combustion engine and an electric drive system makes this car’s personality awesome! Think about it! It delivers the performance of a sports car, and has an mpg about the same as a matchbox! (about 3 L/100 km which is 94 mpg!) It goes from naught to a hundred in under 5 seconds, and it has a top speed of 250 km/h! Okay, bad things: you can only go 35 km before running out of electricity, but thanks to its combustion engine you can travel more with regular gas.It will cost about $350,000-$400,000 once BMW think that you are qualified to own one. Oh, and it does have 4 seats, but I don’t think you can actually use those, unless your children are legless…All of this makes this car an excellent everyday car for a couple. It’s extremely dynamic (thanks to its amazing hybrid engine and low center of gravity), has the best mpg of any sports car, and it has 4 seats and a relatively small trunk which could be used to keep shopping goods. Or a medium sized lamb.

Okay, I think I gave you all the information that you need to fall in love with this car. If it’s not enough, take a look at these pictures 😀

And again, I’m interested in all of your opinions! So please comment and tell me what you guys think of this beauty…

These are some pictures I took in Chicago. They’re not the best, but it’s enough proof 🙂

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Hey everybody! Today I saw the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (which by the way completely made my day!) and I thought about sharing my feelings towards this amazing car! So here it is:

For me,  the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is one of the best cars in the world. The definition of ‘best’ looks somewhat like this: the Mercedes SLS is one of the most beautiful cars in it’s class(especially the roadster), and it has such a perfect combination of muscle and high tech car. The SLS’s 6.2 liter V8 delivers 571 horsepowers with 650 Nm of torque which makes it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine in the world! Thanks to the 7 speed automatic dual clutch transmission and power from the rear wheels, the Mercedes SLS can go from 0 to 60 in 3,8 seconds, and has a top speed of 317 km/h!

I admit, the doors on the coupe look like they are from Batman which is just showing off at it’s greatest, but the I think the roadster is the most beautiful cabriolet in the world! Almost the whole body is made from aluminum which makes it a very light car. The roadster though, had to have an extra steel work on the bottom so the car wouldn’t be all wobbly. It did, however, get rid of the heavy doors and the roof, and because of that, the roadster pretty much weighs the same as the coupe. Naturally, the SLS has all the functions and gadgets that any normal AMG has.

So I’m really interested on what YOU guys think about this car! I’m open for any comment. Good or bad, you won’t hurt my feelings. 😀

Here are some pictures of the car! Get ready to see one the most beautiful objects in the world! 😉
