"The Drivers" by The Sartorialist [Video]

"The Drivers" by The Sartorialist
  
Hey Guys
Not just during Fashion Week, also during Motor Shows there are nearly a thousand Drivers/Chauffeurs nearly constantly driving around, driving important or less important people from one spot to another and back. But is the Job of a Driver really that nice? Are there disadvantages, what are the advantages?

The Sartorialist, very well known in the Fashion Scene, made this Video during Milan Fashion Week (I guess) and uploaded it in July on YouTube. Don't miss this Piece of Art and Interview with some Professional Drivers. And no doubt, what happens in the Car stays in the Car! ;-)

Daydreaming with the Rolls-Royce Wraith at Frankfurt Motor Show 2013

Rolls-Royce Wraith at Frankfurt Motor Show 2013
Rolls-Royce Wraith at Frankfurt Motor Show 2013

Hey Guys

After posting just Pictures, for the second time, of the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever, the Rolls-Royce Wraith, I think it's time to tell you a little bit more about the Car and share with you my Daydreaming-Experience from the Frankfurt Motor Show.

I had my first closer look at the Rolls-Royce Wraith, after its debut at Geneva Motor Show in March, during Concorso d'Eleganza at Lake Como back in May. Right after the entrance there were some Rolls-Royce standing in the middle of green grass next to the Lake - If I'd be rich I would do the same: position a nice Car in my huge Garden, like a Sculpture, and look at it for hours to understand its Design language and soak up its positive energy. Of course I could place it also in my living room, but that's definitely too mainstream for a Car like the Rolls-Royce Wraith.

Hey Guys

It seems like the BMW i3 invaded the Frankfurt Motor Show this Year. Outside and Between the Halls there are Shuttles for the Media today and tomorrow, among them are some nice BMW i3 in different colors - grey, brown, ... and inside I just attended the BMW Press Conference where they officially announced the BMW i3, 4-Series and unveiled the production-ready BMW i8.

The new BMW i3 electric-car is definitely an attention whore as it gets (almost) all the attention. Everyone sneaks around, opens a door, opens the hood, photographes everything etc.

So here some first Pictures for you taken of the BMW i3. In one month I'll be able to Test Drive the i3, so stay tuned for some better Pictures, Videos and a Test Drive Review on October 17. Till then, enjoy these first BMW i3 Pictures live from the Frankfurt Motor Show.

If you want to see it by yourself, the Motor Show is open to the Public from September 12 to 22.

CLA Project by Casey Neistat

Hey Guys

Here it is, finally, the final "CLA Project" Video by YouTube Filmmaker Casey Neistat. In three Videos Casey explained the Process from this first meeting with the Car, a Mercedes-Benz CLA, in New York, a Visit to Stuttgart and a Trip to Europe, some Making-Of and now finally the end result.

All the three Videos made me really thrilled to see the end result for the past months. But .. I'm rather disappointed than crazy in Love with the result. And as we can read in the comments of the Video on YouTube not everyone liked the Video either. I'd love to have more Casey inside, and everything a bit slower so my eyes and brain could realize the Video better as every scene passes by so quick.
