Hey Guys

Sometimes the "Tuning parts" of a car/vehicle worh more than the car itself. Okay, we know this scenario already. But what if the addings cost about 2,130 times more than the car?

This happend last Monday at the unveiling of a new Tata Nano (Yep, the worlds cheapest car) in Mumbai. This model is made out of 80 kg 22 carat solid gold , 15kg silver and 10,000 precious stones, like diamonds and rubies, and other expensive gemstones - it worths unbelivable Rs 22 crore. ($4.68 million) !!

This Goldplus Tata Nano celebrates the 5,000 year anniversary of the jewellery making industry in India. And, of course it is not the world's first ever gold jewellery car, and propably the only with this worth.

"As many as 14 techniques of jewellery making have gone behind the effort -- from the intricate filigree work to the delicate and colourful meenakari work, the stunning kundan to the traditional naqashi...marking the convergence of diverse and culturally distinct jewellery making techniques from around India," TATA says.

This worthy customized car will now travel to every of the 29 locations of the Goldplus Showrooms, in India only. So book your flight, if you want to see the Car in real ;-)

Now a nice Video I found on YouTube:



- What do you think of this now worlds most expensive cheapest car?

Guest Post: Monza and Spa, emotions and feelings

Hey Guys


Today we are accustomed to in Formula 1 tracks anonymous and so similar to each other, that once the Circus circuit returns to the old emotions resurface and soak in a flash of Sundays races.

It 'happened two weeks ago at Spa Francorshamps, it happened again today in Monza.
In Belgium and spoke Brianza tracks: the pilots asked, they answered, in a harmonious dialogue and intense, never dull, always at the edge.
Spectacular tracks where the legend lives on in every corner, where even the youngest riders draw out the grit and the talent that almost anywhere else atrophies.


The thrill and adrenaline of the Eau Rouge Parabolic Formula 1 have shown how this tank needs to go backwards in many respects, and the pilots have largely confirmed this view.

Once, while a press conference held by General Motors, on June 28, 1966, the name of the project XP-836 was unveiled - Camaro. The Press wanted to know what the name means, the Chevrolet product managers answered "it's a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs."

The first of now 5 generations of the pony car debuted in Detroit in 1966 and went officially on sale in September 1966 also. It was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seating and as a coupe or convertible version. The Camaro also shared its platform and the major components with the Pontiac Firebird.
