Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe: Pininfarina’s “Hyperion”

Rolls-Royce has just debuted their new luxury vehicle the two seat convertible Phantom coupe Pininfarina “Hyperion”, named after a Titan in Greek Mythology. The new state of the art design by Pininfarina, meshes the 1930’s old with the 2000’s new by bringing back some of the past influences and intertwining them with recent innovations. The Hyperion has a convertible wide-screen and a cockpit. And the most interesting part about the Hyperion is that it has a gun rack for holding guns or rifles. My question is have previous Rolls-Royce owners been complaining about the lack of gun holders in their cars? I mean what kind of drive by shootings are these people doing that they need a gun rack, but I guess maybe it’s for hunting-but who hunts with a Rolls-Royce. The Hyperion will also come equipped with a luxury limited edition timepiece from the watch designer Girard-Perregaux.  The piece can be removed from its designated cradle on the dashboard and placed on a specially crafted bracelet that can be worn on the wrist. The Hyperion goes 0-60 in 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 155mph-that’s interestingly slower than expected but its beauty makes up for it. Price tag: $412,000

14 gold medalist, Michael Phelps, dominated the men’s swimming competitions this summer Olympics. Now he’s taking his gold medals and laying them to rest in his recently purchased $1,690,000 condo located in Baltimore. Phelps can now kick his feet up for the next 4 years and kiss his 14 gold medals while he enjoys Baltimore’s Harborfront view. The condo stretches 4,080 square feet with a nice rooftop terrace, an exclusive screening room, a clubhouse with pool tables etc., a swimming pool, and a modern high-end gym that can only satisfy an 8 time gold medal winner. Now that Michael Phelps has a condo, the only thing left for him to get is a nice car and a lovely lady to share them with, but who knows he may have those already. See more pics of the condo below.

Bentley and Laptops? Lamborghini to Wine?

This isn’t the first time a brand known for one particular product decided to venture off and produce something that they have no experience with and I’m sure it won’t be the last. It’s like wearing Gucci t-shirts and jeans most don’t wear them because this is not their area of expertise. We’ve heard about Prada’s touch screen phone but now big brand names Lamborghini and Bentley who are mostly known for their $300,000+ priced cars are spreading their wings into other realms of the marketing industry. Did you know Lamborghini has had it’s own wine for a while now? This is just interesting to me, a car company wants you to be intoxicated first and then drive their car home safely. That’s like a weight lose company opening a fast-food chain or a quit smoking organization selling ash trays, they cross each other out. Bentley is also joining in on the fun by partnering with laptop makers “Ego” to produce a handbag like laptop available in 8 different leather coverings that will run you about $19,000. It seems as though those with plentiful amounts of money were getting annoyed that there were too many laptops that regular people could afford. But hey, I guess it’s not that bad Microsoft went from software to video game systems and Apple went from computers to music players and cell phones. Now that I think about it, every companies seems to be doing this so I guess it’s ok. See more pics below.

Fly Musik: “So Fly” Video by Slim feat. Shawty Lo & Young Joc

What can I say people, Slim is officially BACK!! and might I add with a hot track that is definitely gonna blow up in the next couple of days. You can take this to the bank and cash it. Not only does this video embody an upscale style of living, Slim’s approach to the track has a nice smooth swagger to it. His Voice rides on the beat so effortlessly and  puts one in a mellow mood. From the fly pad/condo with the amazing view,  nice clothes, to the expensive ride, this video shows the life of the privileged and makes you want to strive harder to live comfortably. I believe a valuable lesson should be learned from this video. You have to stay fly, fresh and on-point 24/7 because you only get one chance to make a good first impression. Little things like smelling good, being clean cut, and dressed presentably goes a long way. Slim was part of 112, which was one  of the biggest male R&B groups of our time in my opinion and they successfully sold over 25 million records and I guess is now venturing on his own path to make a name for himself. Does this mean there will be no more 112 albums….? I hope not, but I’m definitely happy for Slim and I wish him much success.  See the “So Fly” video and also watch another video of Slim laying  down the track
