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.

Mercedes-BenzUltimateTestDriveA.R. AlBisher and Z. AlKazemi Co. the exclusive general distributor for Mercedes-Benz in Kuwait, is inviting motoring enthusiasts to register and attend the Ultimate Test Drive event from 6-7 February 2014. The first Kuwaiti Mercedes-Benz test drive of the year promises to impress drivers with the complete line-up of vehicles from the SUV, sedan and coupé ranges, as well as the much sought after high performance AMG division.

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.

London’s New Taxi

January 7th, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Automotive | Information | News | Others | World Life - (0 Comments)

LondonNewTaxiStill this study is under process. As we are used to old London Taxis, it is the time to change them to an advanced taxis. Nissan proposed the Nissan NV200 London Taxi pitched as a cleaner, greener, more spacious and less vomit-specked taxi that retained the traditional black cab’s ability to turn on a sixpence. The London NV200 isn’t exactly a complete rework of the 2012 effort, but it gets a new face, bumpers and an LED top light. Nissan’s MkII London cab is more than a facelift, though. Instead of the 1.5-litre, 50mpg-plus diesel originally mooted, it’s now packed a 1.6-litre petrol capable of 38mpg. Like it or not, it’ll hit London the end of this year, likely followed by an all-electric version.

I liked the design, they look elegant and the same touches of the old London taxis.
