This car has already become a chameleon, donning at least 4 different types of wheels from all the photos i’ve seen so far. Well here are some great shots of it around the Monaco circuit today!

The engine of the year for us in the USA is most definitely the new 2.5L 5 cylinder turbo that is being introduced in the TT-RS this autumn. The TT-RS is probably the most exciting sports car being released on US shores in 2011 after the truly remarkable BMW 1M. I had a conversation with Audi Of America’s product manager today about the imminent launch of the car. The details are still in their final stages, but the first cars will be delivered in the early Autumn it seems. Exciting stuff—especially as I have a few friends ordering one. For anyone here interested—ordering guides are now available from Audi dealers across the US—pricing, however, is not finalized yet. The car will be arriving, however, with the upgraded 360hp “RS Plus” configuration. It’s gonna be an epic daily driver…
So here’s a car which shares the glorious engine….but a car which will never make it to US shores in this form—-that being said, the 2013 Audi A3 which is slated for US shores may end up with an RS3 version with the same glorious engine—so all is not lost!
I really dig TAG Heuer watches….always have and ever since i got my Monza a few years ago around the time of my wedding—-i’ve started to love them even more! I found this website devoted to restoring and selling gorgeous pre-“TAG” watches made by Heuer. As some of you may know, they added to the “TAG” to the beginning of the name after TAG (an auto/racing parts manufacturer) purchased the Heuer watch company in the 80s.
Heuerboy sells some amazing examples of vintage 60s, 70s, and 80s Heuer watches, alongside ‘other’ brands as well—-as well as some really cool stopwatches and other accessories from the vintage side of the world. Prices are not exactly cheap when converting to the dollar, but i guess if you’ve got the loot—it would be well worth it to spend 950 UK pounds on a vintage black Monza (as pictured above) rather than $1500 on just another run-of-the-mill watch.
anyway—the Heuerboy website itself isn’t exactly a nice website, but his work on these older Heuer watches looks pretty damn impressive, and just to see some nice pictures of his selection is uttery great! So check out the site, and start saving up some change!
