BMW i8 is one of the most progressive sports car. The BMW i8 is ready to revolutionise its vehicle class. As the first sports car with the consumption and emission values of a compact car. The strength of the plug-in hybrid lies, among other factors, in the perfect synchronisation of electric motor and combustion engine, which makes itself apparent in maximum efficiency and dynamics on the road. The first sports car that even accelerates the zeitgeist.

With its unique drive concept, it essentially reinvents the idea of sporting mobility. This is because the powerful plug-in hybrid system with the combination of BMW eDrive technology and a BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine brings together the benefits of an electric motor and a petrol engine to produce an outstanding driving experience.

BMW i8 series production of customer vehicles started in April 2014.

I saw this video on YouTube of a £200,000  Lamborghini Aventador caused a three-car crash in London. The black Lamborghini Aventador was caught on camera speeding so fast it briefly became airborne before smashing into a parked car. A passerby caught the 217mph motor flying into view, before clipping a nearby Mazda and lifting off the ground. In a split second the young driver loses control of his exotic vehicle and hits a stationary BMW 3 Series before coming to a halt.

The movie  Need For Speed Movie is now showing at Cinescape Screens. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting. An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, “Need for Speed” taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time—one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul)—who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side—reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter.

Need for Speed movie is directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor), and also stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Imogen Poots, Dakota Johnson and Scott Mescudi.

ChooseCarThe market is full of brands and opportunities. However, there are some questions and ways you need to think about before you choose your own car such as:

  1. Write down the best popular cars brands you like.
  2. Write down the purpose of buying your car. Is it for family, single driver, travel or sport.
  3. Search online the types of each car brand that matches your purpose.
  4. Write down the main features and specifications of each car.
  5. Visit local dealers showroom and ask about the car specifications, features, price, dealer services and any promotions.
  6. Test drive the cars.
  7. Choose one car only that you liked from the other cars you tested.
  8. Choose your car colour that matches your age or purpose.

From my experience, always don’t listen to salesmen, friends or family member to choose your own car because every person has his/her own interest to choose any item in the market. So think and think and think before you buy your car.

KuwaitSmashCarWindowWeeks ago, I posted about Ministry of Municipal Finds It Difficult To Clean Street Rocks. Till today I got ten small smashed window dots on car. I went to Shuwaikh last night and disappointed with the price. Each dot cost 3.500KD. I’m thinking to change the full front window rather than paying 35KD.
