Ferrari FF at Knightsbridge London | HR Owen

Ferrari FF from Knightsbridge, London. Actually that’s the expected habitat of the all-wheel drive Ferrari. However, I didn’t spot the Ferrari FF on the street, instead, it was at HR Owen Knightsbridge dealer. Personally, I really like the Ferrari FF, even though it is a bit ugly but the technology lying under the bonnet for the all-wheel drive system turns the ugliness into a charm!

Also, Ferrari FF is quite functional car! A proper boot, all-wheel drive, four seats and it is not a poser’s Ferrari!

Ferrari FF is powered by a 6,2-lt V12 engine with 660 HP and 683 nm. The top speed of FF is 335 km/h and only needs 3.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h! And the engine is coupled with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox with pedals behind the steering-wheel!

Ferrari FF offers a very distinctive and a unique driving experience, which you cannot find very easily on a sports car!

Rolls-Royce #InsideRollsRoyce Exhibition at Saatchi Gallery London

Rolls-Royce #InsideRollsRoyce exhibition at Saatchi Gallery London started two days ago. And I had chance to attend at the first day. So, is it possible to create an art exhibition from a car. For many people, car is an object that allows them to travel from a to b. However, this is a limited definition. And when it comes to Rolls-Royce, purchasing a car is bespoke journey and a to b concept does not match with this brand.
Most of the Rolls-Royce cars you see on the street are bespoke, basically, it is extremely hard to find an two identical Rolls-Royces. You might be saying, I saw two white Rolls-Royces yesterday. However, did you check their paint code? They may look white but they won’t have the same white tone. The bespoke approach with Rolls-Royce starts with the colour scheme (44.000 different colours) and finishes with your imagination that is possible to manufacture. Basically, when you decide to purchase a Rolls-Royce, you decide to have a bespoke purchasing journey.
As a result of this unique character of Rolls-Royce, it is a great opportunity to  know more about the brand. Unfortunately, society perceives luxury vehicles as an expensive purchase but the reality is totally different. Therefore, if you wish to know more about the Rolls-Royce heritage, you should visit the Saatchi Gallery until Sunday. And it is free to public!
Regarding to umbrellas, each Rolls-Royce comes with a pair of umbrella matching with the exterior colour of the car.

The Last Bugatti Veyron | End of an Era

This is the last Bugatti Veyron available to purchase at HR Owen, Jack Barclay in London. End of an era! There will not be a brand new Veyron after this car is sold. Veyron became the world’s most powerful production car when it was announced with 1001 HP and kept this momentum with the 1200 HP version. The last Veyron is the 1200 HP version, the most powerful production car available at the moment.

Bugatti Veyron vs. McLaren P1 in Knightsbridge (SW1) London

The ultimate comparison! Bugatti Veyron (1200 HP) vs. McLaren P1! Who is the winner? Actually, none of them is the winner, because they were not moving to anywhere. I took these photos in Knightsbridge, London. In terms of postcode, SW1! SW1 means, I am very very very rich but you are not! In London, postcodes rules!
Actually, it was an epic and unique moment in London. I had the chance to see two super cars, Bugatti Veyron with 1200 HP and McLaren P1 with 903 HP. Okay, Bugatti has more horsepower but McLaren is really light 1.3-tonne only!
I really love both of these cars and had to sit inside. The excitement of sitting inside a car like this, literally you are sitting inside more than one-million euro. Really unique feeling but don’t try with real money.
And my favourite is McLaren P1, because my friend designed it. Frank Stephenson. And P1 is not available anymore and very few Bugattis are left!
By the way, the Mercedes S500 was really a high spec model but wrong time and wrong place, sorry Mercedes :(

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse from HR Owen Jack Barclay

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse from HR Owen Jack Barclay, London. You may not know this but Bugatti is running out of Veyrons! Less than 45 Veyrons are left and none of which are coupe! Literally, Bugatti Veyron will be finished in few months time.

Therefore, I wanted to let you know where you can buy one. Recently, I spotted the Bugatti Veyron Grand Vitesse in London. It produces 1200 HP and 1500 Nm of torque. These figures are enough to reach 415 km/h and reaching 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds.

And lastly, Veyron is powered by battery. Why I said this? Because, you may have noticed that the Veyron is plugged to main but it is for charging the battery.
