…It’s Tuner Tuesday: ASI W66GTS?

ASI W66GTS Sides

It’s hard to deny that the ASI W66GTS is anything but a head turning car. (In case you were wondering, ASI stands for Accuracy, Spirit and Imagination.)

ASI W66GTS Front And Back

Featuring the company’s dry carbon fiber hood, trunk and wing, the gold Bentley’s strikingly flowered paint scheme is hand painted onto the car by none other than Japan’s very own Nakamura Tetsuei.

If you’re worried that the exterior was the only part of this car to go under the knife though, then fear not, as the twin-turbo W12 was also the beneficiary of a hefty power jump to the tune of up to 800 horsepower.

It’s definitely not a car for everybody, but in a land filled with Ferraris and Lamborghinis, young oil tycoons are having to try harder and harder each day to stand out at the Dubai drive through.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mansory Renovatio?

Mansory Renovatio

Mansory doesn’t do subtle supercars.

Their latest project, called the Renovatio, is based on a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, and features a modified supercharger, new wheels, tons of carbon fiber additions, a tricked out interior, and plenty of gold paint.

The end result is a 700 horsepower beast that is guaranteed to turn heads.

…TheBlackApp is coming?

The Black App

TheBlackApp is calling itself “The first iPhone consumer network”, and since “space is limited”, they encourage you to register in advance for a launch date of June 5. (They also assure you that, no, this is not a stunt.)

There are three different levels of TheBlackApp (Black, Gold, and Silver) and it looks like the benefits will depend on which level you are a part of, so sign up now to reserve your spot.

…The De Grisogono Meccanico DG is amazing?

De Grisogono Meccanico DG

The De Grisogono Meccanico DG is possibly the coolest watch I’ve ever seen.

Scratch that; The De Grisogono Meccanico DG is the coolest watch I’ve ever seen.

Why?

Because it’s “the first all mechanical watch with a digital display integrated into it”.

Let me repeat: An all mechanical watch with a digital display. No LEDs. No digital parts. Just 651 of the smallest watch pieces imaginable working together to make magic happen.

Sink in yet?

Basically, the DG 042 De Grisgono manual movement that powers the watch uses some sort of half magic half mystery potion to make the numbers at the bottom change every minute, and in doing so, causes shock and awe inside of anyone that sees it.

It’s either that, or they figured out how to shrink little elves and keep them alive inside of the watch, but I prefer to believe the former.

According to the press release:

    The mechanically operated digital display of the second timezone shows tens of hours, single hours, tens of minutes and single minutes, all displayed by mobile microsegments driven by an assemblage of 23 cams connected to a set of gears and a triggering and synchronization system. The time information is displayed by an array of 23 horizontally and vertically positioned microsegments. Vertical segments are 9 mm high and weigh at most 25 milligrams while the horizontal segments measure 2.90 mm in length and weigh only 10 milligrams. The segments have four faces: two opposing visible faces fitted with colored strips and two opposing unmarked faces. Time changes are effected by 90° rotations of the required segment or segments. Involving one to twelve segments, time changes are lightning fast.

Only 177 of this super limited edition will be made available in either red gold, titanium and gold, titanium and platinum, or titanium and rubber, and if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. (But believe me, with a watch like this, most people will have to ask!)
