11 – The Beautiful Game

11 The Beautiful Game

11 – The Beautiful Game is the first in a series of ‘luxury’ football tables (foosball for those of us in the US) from GRO design.

With a design that features sweeping curves to “reflect the beauty and grandeur of today’s modern stadiums”, atmospheric lighting, and chromed metal players, it’s meant to capture the excitement and drama of a classic sporting encounter.

In addition, each table is individually numbered, and hand-finished by skilled European craftsmen.

It doesn’t get much better than that!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: C1-RS?


I got a chance to check out the Roadster Shop’s C1-RS Corvette this past weekend at the Goodguys West Coast Nationals, and was AMAZED by the level of detail in this award winning street machine. (Street Machine of the Year to be exact.)

Under the hood lies a 618 horsepower LS7 with a T-56 transmission that does its best to transfer all 640ft lbs of torque, while Detroit Speed & Engineering suspension keeps the tires planted and 14” Brembos bring everything to a stop.

Outside, the ‘vette features carbon fiber side louvers, a front end that was entirely customized out of aluminum (including all grills, grille surrounds, front bumper and grille bar) and a rear end with enough carbon fiber to make an F1 team jealous.

Inside, it’s all luxury, with Italian leather, Alcantara suede, a hand-sculpted aluminum dash, and Classic Instruments carbon fiber gauges all around.

In sum, it’s a car that has been thought through, massaged over and customized to perfection, with few peers and no substitutes.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Prindiville Lamborghini Murcielago?

Prindiville Lamborghini Murcielago

Anyone can dress up their Lamborghini with a new set of wheels or a fancy spoiler, but it takes a special kind of tuner to take apart the raging bull and piece it back together as a carbon fiber interpretation of its former self. Thus, the Prindiville Prestige Lamborghini Murcielago is no ordinary supercar.

When compared to a standard (hah!) Lamborghini, the Prindiville variation only retains the front compartment lid, as everything (and I do mean everything) else has been changed, right down to the roof panel.

There’s a bolder, more assertive front valance, eye-catching sills, a more dynamic rear valance through which exits a specially designed titanium sports exhaust system, ‘handle-less’ doors with remote electric opening, and a restyled engine bay cover with transparent cooling louvres.

Plus, as if that wasn’t enough, all of the exterior bits and pieces have been made of carbon fiber for that rare and racy look and feel.

Inside, rich leather and hand-finished aluminum accents treat the driver to all the luxury that a supercar owner could want or need, and ‘little touches’ like specially engineered aluminum air vents remind the driver that they’re not in an average Lamborghini.

Dream car status doesn’t come cheap, as the Prindiville Murcielago reportedly sold for more than a million dollars, but if you’re in the mood for a custom creation that won’t be matched by anything on the road, then give them a call and see what they can do, because apparently, the sky’s the limit.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: BRABUS V12 Biturbo G-Wagon?

BRABUS V12 Biturbo G-Wagon

The formula isn’t difficult (big vehicle + powerful motor = WIN) and the end result isn’t beautiful, but for BRABUS, they’re hoping that beauty is in the eye (and right foot) of the beholder.

That’s because BRABUS is calling their V12, Biturbo G-Wagon “the world’s most powerful off-roader”, and with 690 hp and 973 lb-ft of torque on tap, I’m inclined to believe them.

To reach those monster power numbers, they yanked out the stock power plant and replacing it with the V12 from a S600 that was then bored and stroked to a rather healthy 6.3-liter displacement. Add to that mix custom-tailored BRABUS Monoblock wheels, subtle fender flairs, a new suspension, a redone interior, and all of the other bits and pieces that come with a half million dollar redesign, and you’ve got yourself an SUV that will take you to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds with style and luxury to spare.

…Lufthansa Technik will pimp out your Airbus?

Custom Airbus A380

If you recently purchased an Airbus A380, but aren’t quite sure how to deck out the interior of your personal double-decker mansion in the sky, then give Lufthansa Technik a call and ask about their VIP Saloon.

The design is pure luxury, and since I can’t even imagine what the price of a regular A380 looks like, the price of a tricked out one is probably disgusting.

Regardless, they’ll have at least a few of these roaming the skies before you know it, so be on the look out for a plane with a few extra couches in it.
