2015 Corvette C7 Z06 - LOUD SOUND in Geneva

Hey Guys

After hearing this "normal" Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 in Geneva yesterday night I really can't wait to hear the Race-Version during this Years 24h of Le Mans. Already two years ago you were able to hear when a Corvette was driving by as they were the only, remaining, Cars that really sounded dirty, hungry and full of drivinglust.

So here "just" the Video of the Corvette C7 Z06, enjoy it! ;)




Car Babes at the Geneva Motor Show 2014

Autosalon Genf 2014 Messe Babes Girls

Hey Guys

They are probably the second essential thing at every Motor Show, the Car Babes. I shot most of them today, hope you enjoy this Gallery and which one is your favorite? And this time I mean the Girls and not the Cars ;)

Testing UBER thanks to #UBERCadillac in Geneva


Hey Guys

There are definitely not many moments in live when you get picked up by a driver with a Cadillac Escalade and he drives you where ever you want to and also hands over your luggage after arriving at your destination. And there were definitely not many moments in my live that I was actually able to drive a Cadillac or be eben driven by a chauffeur, in a Cadillac. In an Escalade.

And so it currently happens in Geneva, only during the Press Days of the annual Geneva Motor Show, that you are able to use UBER in Geneva. Click here for a List of Premieres during the Geneva Motor Show 2014.

But now some words about UBER, for the ones of you that never heard about it: UBER is a venture-founded startup and Transportation Network Company based in San Francisco in California. UBER is a mobile application "app" "that connects passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services."
Their fleet consists of Cars like Lincoln Town Cars, Cadillac Escalads, BMW 7-series, Mercedes-Benz S5500 sedans and in the meantime many more.

Hey Guys

On Tuesday it's finally this time of the year again .. the Geneva Motor Show takes place! As every year at the beginning of March, for the fifth time now, I'm travelling to southern Switzerland so see and feel all the Cars by myself, and for sure I'm reporting for you. And so my Question to you is - WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE?

As I want to focus on the Cars and Premieres and Manufacturers that interest YOU I have collected a small list of the already announced Premieres at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 and you are invited to comment your wishes below here, on my Facebook Page of write me via Twitter to @thecaraddict.

The Geneva Motor Show 2014 is open to the Public from MArch 6th to 16th, I'll be there on Tuesday and Wednesday, so 4th to 5th to take all the Pictures and Videos you want to see!

Things Every Guy Should Know About Cars

It's a bit rough on men. There's a lot of talk about the equality of the sexes, yet the poor blokes are still expected to know about, or be able to do, certain things. He needs to know about sports, action films, when to open the door for a woman and when that will get him called a sexist pig and most of all, he needs to know about cars.


Learning to drive

Knowing how to drive and actually passing your test aren't necessarily the same thing. You may be able to move the car around smoothly but unless you learn the rules of the road, you're not getting that coveted full licence. You'll get there faster with extra time behind the wheel, so the best thing to do is to purchase some cheap learner driver insurance for your own or for the family's car and take it for a supervised spin in between formal lessons. You'll soon get the hang of it.

Maintenance

Nothing feels quite as good as saying to your mates "I'll be working on the car at the weekend." Not only will you get an untold amount of 'man points' but you'll save a fair bit of money as well. If you can change your own oil and filters, replace broken bulbs and worn out wipers, you'll be able to cut down considerably on the cost of keeping your car on the road. There are excellent manuals available for many cars, that give a set of detailed instructions - with illustrations - of how to do most jobs. Buy one and work your way up from small jobs to larger ones.

Emergencies

When your car breaks down, it's important to know what to do. Basic things, such as putting on your hazard warning lights if you're likely to cause an obstruction or knowing how to jump start a car and carrying jump leads can keep you out of unnecessary trouble. You should definitely learn how to change a tyre safely; it's not difficult and the instructions are on numerous websites and in manuals. Let's be honest, though; there'll be times when you will need expert help and membership of a good breakdown recovery company is something you'll be glad of one day.

Knowing the way

In the age of the sat nav, there's very little excuse for getting lost, but every man should know how to read a map; it might be cloudy, the sat nav may have incorrect information, the battery may be dead. If you're going somewhere unusual, take a map; you can buy one or simply download a set of instructions, with a map attached, from the internet and then you can feel confident about getting to your destination.

These days, it's far more common to share driving duties. You may be using your parents' car or jointly own one with a partner and it's only fair that you should share other duties as well. You should both, for example, be able to change a wheel, replace a broken wiper or remove a week's worth of empty fizzy drink containers from the back seat, if necessary. The only thing a man really, really needs to know isthat nobody thinks it's cool to hang fluffy dice from the mirror unless you're making a film about the 1970s.

David Brown Automotive announced "Project Judi" specifications


Hey Guys

In the UK, the birthplace of some elegant and luxurious cars, a new baby car manufacturer will join the automotive world and celebrate the premiere of their first car soon, in April 2014. During Top Marques in Monaco David Brown Automotive will unveil their "Project Judi" and already now they announced the outline specifications.

Underneath its bespoke exterior design, is the acclaimed chassis and powertrain of the Jaguar XKR, optimised specifically for the car by Envisage group engineers.
This means the car will boast a thoroughly modern 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine, driving the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Performance will be suitably brisk, yet refined, delivering 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed exceeding 155mph (248 km/h).
“As reliability is vital, we chose to adopt a thoroughly proven and acclaimed chassis that not only delivers dynamic performance but also lends itself to our lightweight aluminium design. Renown for its performance and handling, the XKR has been extensively developed and refined by one of the world’s greatest car manufacturers, making it an obvious choice on which to base our car” said David.

These state-of-the-art underpinnings are matched to a completely original exterior and interior design, realised through the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.

David explained: “I wanted all the impact and style of a classic sports car, but with modern capabilities and conveniences. This is what I want in a car, but it’s not something anyone really offers. So, I’ve created it myself.”

“It has been developed using a combination of both traditional and contemporary technology, including the latest in automotive expertise. It has undergone a thorough analysis and development programme, including highly advanced windtunnel and dynamic simulations.”

“Project Judi” will be revealed to the public at the Top Marques Show, in Monaco, on 17th April 2014.

QOROS 3 Hatch World Premiere at Geneva Motor Show 2014

QOROS 3 Hatch World Premiere

Hey Guys

Qoros, a chinese manufacturer founded in 2007, will celebrate the world premiere of their second production model at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 this March - the Qoros 3 Hatch.

The design and engineering of the compact (C-segment) Qoros 3 Hatch draws heavily on the brand’s first model, the Qoros 3 Sedan. While it is similarly inspired by contemporary European automotive styling themes, it displays a subtle, youthful evolution of the distinctive signature Qoros design cues to inject greater sportiness to the car’s appearance.

Hey Guys

Would you believe me if I'm saying that you can survive, just by driving your Car? Okay, you're right, this might sound a bit too odd and strange, but it is reality!

Already today the Mercedes-Benz F-Cell can produce water. Or it's the only thing that leaves the car as emission. You're still a bit too mind-blown about this thing? Check out the Video and belive what your eyes see.

Hey Guys
As you've probably seen on my Instagram @thecaraddict two weeks ago I've attended the MINI Driving Experience in Sölden, Tyrol, Austria (Review and Gallery will follow!!) and as I needed to go there, not by drinking a certain Energy Drink and flying, I was able to take a perfekt Roadtripcar for this Trip from Munich to the austrian Ötztal - a brand new BMW X5 xDrive 30d in white.

Volkswagen crowned the ultimate Fan Food & WIN a VIP-Trip to WRC in Monte Carlo!

Advertorial


Hey Guys

First of all I wish everyone a merry christmas and I hope you enjoyed it with your family, friends and beloved ones. Besides lots of Food, some presents and almost no posibility to do something else than spending time with your family (some like it, some not..) there is just one disadvantage about the winter time .. there is no Motorsport happening so you're not able to watch something on TV or via the Internet.

But in order to count the days down to the start of the WRC Rallye in Monte-Carlo Volkwagen presents a Video and something very special but cool, they invented the ultimate "VW Polo WRC Fan Food"!
After testing different types of fast food like Pizza, Burger, Fries .. they found THE ULTIMATE Fan Food for Volkswagen Fans. It can be eaten even during watching it both in front of the TV and right next to the track and it's easy and delicious - the Currywurst!

Window Shopping at Bob Forster Park Lane London

Bob Forster Park Lane London

Hey Guys

In our current christmas-season there seems nothing better than shopping - buying stuff for our beloved and friends and sometimes also something small for ourselves. So Window Shopping at Bob Forster at Park Lane London might be a cheap solution, or going in and buying somehting?! What would you do?

Personally I wouldn't mind if this Brabus G-Glass would appear (in real size) under my christmas tree this year - it already has a red bow for me :)
