faster beast: Bugatti Veyron Super Sport!

CLICK ON ANY OF THE PICS TO GET HI-RES

No, 1001 HP simply wasn’t enough!  It is now 1200 HP, and the top speed is now officially 267 mph, which makes it THE fastest road car in the world…………..again!

It is quite simply the fastest, most outrageous, maddest, and amazing car in the world—-and it’s been reborn to be even better.

best watch for under $100?

My favourite watchmaker is definitely Tag Heuer.  I love my Monza very much so.  However i’ve been wearing my Monza every single day for the past 3 years, and today I decided to pick up a ‘cheap’ watch for under $100, that I can use sometimes to give the Heuer a break…..i’m really picky when it comes to watches—so finding a ‘back up’ ain’t so easy.

So for a mere $50, I picked up a carbon fiber tinged Carrera Athletic Three Hand.

I’m very impressed by the amount of quality they have packed into a lower priced watch.  I think suggested retail for these watches is around $100….but if you have a look around the net, you can find em floating anywhere between $50 and $75.  I haven’t seen alot of them in person, however I gotta say that on first impression, to an outsider, this definitely looks worth MUCH more than $50.  Great stuff.

Here’s the watch I bought, followed by a link to the Carrera Time website, which has a full catalog online.

inside the Pagani factory…

Speedhunters were recently granted exclusive, in depth access to the magical world of Pagani. Pagani are undoubtedly one of only a few companies who can build a supercar that has some uniqueness, imagination, and outright charm (are you listening Ferrari?).  HORACIO PAGANI was the founder of Pagani and had been after the supercar dream for a long time—to finally have it realised in the form of the legendary Pagani Zonda.

Check out all the photos and the full article, very well written in 3 parts, on:
