…Dirk Auer is a record setting in-line skater?

Dirk Auer

Dirk Auer recently set a new world record by speeding down an 860-meter roller coaster track on a pair of in-line skates that he built himself after setting the world record for the fastest in-line skating at 190mph while being towed behind a Porsche GT2.

…Gold is the new chrome?

Gold Plated Cars

Chrome has been the king of car plating for a long time now, but if Born Rich is to be believed, then Gold could soon be replacing it as the car cover of choice for the uber-rich.

The gallery that they put together includes gold plated Bugattis, BMWs, Porsches, Bentleys, Rolls Royces and DeLoreans, and each one is a show of gaudy excess.

Gold chain, greasy hair and 80s flashbacks not included.

…9ff tuns the GT2 into a mean machine and calls it the BT-2?

9ff BT2

Porsche’s GT2 is already a pretty stellar supercar, but the folks at 9ff aren’t satisfied with just stellar, so they wanted to make their version spectacular.

9ff BT2 Engine

The result of their work is a car called the BT-2, which takes a car that’s nicknamed ‘The Widowmaker’ and turns everything up to 11. Power jumps from 520 to 850 horsepower, torque rises to 678 pound-feet, and zero to sixty times drop from a scary 3.7 seconds to an unbelievable 3 seconds flat. Top speed is also increased to 240 mph, and you’ll pass by 200 in just 19 seconds on your way to the top.

Just don’t forget to blink…

…The Porsche Design Cayenne looks blackalicious?

Porsche Design Cayenne

The Porsche Cayman S Design Edition proved that the stunner from Stuttgart looks even better in tones of black, and apparently Porsche agreed, because they went on to create a Boxster S Design Edition, and now, a Cayenne GTS Design Edition.

The all black beauty gets special black striping on the doors and hood, along with 21-inch SportPlus wheels that are painted to match.

Inside, it’s plenty of carbon fiber and black leather to coddle and comfort the driver, and ‘Porsche Design Edition 3’ badging can be found both inside and out.

Porsche Design Accessories

The big selling point however is that in addition to the SUV, buyers get Porsche Design accessories that match, including a chronograph watch and a four piece luggage set.

Not fond of black?

That’s just too damn bad.
