McLaren 675LT Unleashed on the Track

The McLaren 675LT is the lightest, most powerful and most track-focused model in the Super Series – and it has now been unleashed on track.

Production of the strictly limited model has now started at the state-of-the-art McLaren Production Centre in Woking, England, and the latest video from McLaren Automotive shows a 675LT dynamically on track for the first time. The 675LT combines light weight, optimized aerodynamics and a focus on driver engagement as one of the most revered names in modern-day GT racing – the Longtail – is resurrected. The track-focused dynamics are highlighted as the Napier Green model is demonstrated in each of its three handling and powertrain modes around on track, with its explosive performance supported by the soundtrack of a 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine producing 675PS (666bhp), emphasized by the new lightweight titanium crossover exhaust.

On The Road and En Vogue: Rolls-Royce unveils new Wraith

Add a splash of color to make the ordinary- haute.

Fashion-forward Rolls-Royce unveiled its new Rolls-Royce Wraith- Inspired by Fashion. Drawing its inspiration from the 2015 Spring/Summer Collections seen on the runways across the world, the Wraith is making a fashion statement of its own.


With so many new trends, it only makes sense for the nicest fashion accessory- the Rolls-Royce Wraith to take high-fashion to the next level.

The two-tone white-on-white Wraith exudes classy elegance, but add a pop of color to make it really stand out.


Punctuated with a choice of three vivid accent colors-  “Jasmine,” “Tailored Purple,” or “Mugello Red,”  tailor the look to reflect your own personal style inside and out.

Inspired By Fashion Customer Briochure ROW (1).8-page-001

The cabin of the new Wraith is wrapped in the finest fabrics and tantalizing texture- like the sultry welted silk on the door panels, paying homage to fine-tailored haute-couture.


The luxurious coupe was unveiled at New York’s PRATT institute during the school’s “Women of Influence in the Business of Style” event.

Idris Elba Takes Bentley On A Record-Breaking “Flying Mile”

Actor Idris Elba chased and surpassed a historic record, set nearly 90 years ago. Behind the wheel of a new Bentley Continental GT Speed, the award-winning actor hit a top speed of 180.361 mph , breaking the previous “Flying Mile” record of 174.8 mph set by Sir Malcolm Campbell in his legendary Napier-Campbell Blue Bird. Elba took to the Pendine Sands in Whales to make a run for the record books.

Elba, who famously played Nelson Mandela in the multi-award winning Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, said: “I’m absolutely elated to have broken the ‘Flying Mile’ at Pendine Sands. It’s an honor to have taken on the challenge, and to successfully follow in the footsteps of the illustrious Sir Malcolm Campbell.”

Despite some challenging tidal conditions on the beach in south Wales, the record was broken in the Crewe-built Continental during filming for an upcoming four-part Discovery Channel series, Idris Elba: No Limits, which will air in July.

Elba’s record was independently verified by the UK Timing Association.

Powered by Bentley’s iconic 6-litre twin-turbo W12 engine, the GT Speed dispatches the zero-to-sixty sprint in 4.0 seconds on its way to a top speed of 206 mph.

A Bugatti Wish Fulfilled and Memories Made

An experience to last a lifetime and a permanent grin to prove it.

Park Place teamed up with the Make-A-Wish foundation to make 7-year-old Michael Hollis’ dream come true.

His dream…worth nearly $3 MILLION!

Watch Michael Take The Ride Of His Dreams!

The young boy, battling leukemia, is a fan of fast cars and auto-racing video games.

Naturally, he wanted to experience a Bugatti Veyron for himself.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse

Michael, along with his mom and dad flew in from San Antonio for the big surprise, arranged by Park Place Premier Collection, Make-A-Wish and Bugatti.

They pulled up for Michael’s big surprise in a white stretch-limo.


Michael had no idea what was in store for him till he saw his dream car…a black and blue Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse…with a Bugatti factory driver.



The driver wasn’t just any driver, it was Butch Leitzinger- a race car driver who won the famed Rolex 24 at Daytona three times.

Michael- stunned and excited, climbed into the Bugatti, taking it all in while Butch explained what each button does and how the super car, packing 1200 horsepower- taking it from 0-60 in under 3 seconds, works.

Although the car tops out at 255 mph, Leitzinger didn’t go quite that fast.

Michael, taking it all in during the ride was all smiles, waved to cars as they passed.

After the ride, Michael and his family got a personal tour of the Park Place Premier Collection- checking out Rolls Royces, Bentleys and other awe-inspiring luxury vehicles.
