LAMBORGHINI: THE NEW URUS

July 13, 2018

The World’s First “Super Sport Utility Vehicle”

Lamborghini has launched its newest model, the Lamborghini Urus, the first “Super Sport Utility Vehicle.” A true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, and a unique emotional experience, the Urus is a powerful luxury SUV, with the driving dynamics of a great sports car every bit as appreciated by the driver as well as the passengers.

The Urus is equipped with a four-liter V8 bi-turbo motor with 650 HP (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 850 Nm.

Exterior Design 

Sporty, elegant, and all-terrain, the muscular surfaces of the Urus give this car a powerful, self-secure allure, while the mixed tires give it a luxury super sports car look. The extreme proportions and silhouette created by a single line from the front to the back of the vehicle make the Urus a true Lamborghini. The Urus design was inspired by the heritage of the LM002, in regard to the power dome showing the position of the engine and the significant diagonal lines, while the frameless doors recall the iconic Marcello Gandini line.

 

 

 

 

Interior Design

The interior of the Lamborghini Urus combines luxurious Italian craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology. The aerodynamic design concept, with a driver-oriented instrument panel featuring three screens, puts the driver’s needs at the forefront and makes the overall experience more comfortable and enjoyable. The interior can be customized to accentuate its elegance or sportiness, through the selection of different colors and kinds of materials, such as leather, Alcantara®, wood, aluminum, or carbon.

Key Points: The Urus is a versatile vehicle par excellence, with everyday usability, yet true to Lamborghini spirit with its typical motor noise, its sense of emotional impact, and high-performance personality. 

Plus: The Lamborghini Urus is the first super sports car with five seats.

NEW YACHT DESIGN: XHIBITIONIST

June 25, 2018

Intelligently designed to turn heads

Far from being fiction, this yacht is quite far from the ordinary. Imagined by Swedish design studio Gray Design, this revolutionary project is sure to delight car and boat aficionados the world over.

A sense of relaxation starts on the bridge. The open space and Jacuzzi provide the basics for relaxing and enjoying the sunny, expansive views. In fact, Xhibitionist has put the sun right in the heart of its functionality.

As if from under the hood of a sports car, solar panels unfold to create a large platform. In addition to providing energy for the yacht, they are robust enough to serve as a heliport, or a concert stage… Can you imagine listening to live music on this stage before 10,000 people in a marina? The size of these solar panels gives an idea of the yacht’s energy efficiency and its degree of tranquility while in port. The solar power also provides free energy for nighttime lighting.

The motors are clearly visible behind a large glass wall that allows for easy access for maintenance, and of course hours of amusement for those who love naval engineering. They will be especially impressed by the choice of hybrid drive system that controls this 85-meter nautical wonder (14-meter radius).

Key points: Based on the lines of a luxury sports car, the exterior shape reflects the creator’s designs for supercars (such as the Xhibit-G created in keeping with the Xhibitionist yacht concept).

Plus: Completely futurist, the extremely robust solar panels can serve as a helipad.

Characteristics: 
LOA 278 feet (85m)
Beam 39 feet (12m)
Speed 28 knots

LOUIS VUITTON: Capucines

June 19, 2018

An Iconic Bag By Louis Vuitton

The Capucines bag, highly popular for its unique design and clean lines, marks a perfect mix of innovation and creativity. The name of this timeless style is a reference to Rue des Capucines, where the first-ever Louis Vuitton boutique opened its doors in 1854.
Both fashtionable and feminine, the Capucines bag stands out for its versatility, its excellent quality leather, and its elegant, structured design. 

Two new versions:

Flower Smile
For the 2018 Summer Collection, Louis Vuitton presents Flower Smile, a pretty version of the Capucines bag. This model features the signature “V” created by alternating Monogram flowers in Taurillon leather and Taiga leather crests adorned with metal studs. The detachable shoulder strap on the PM version is decorated with gilded Monogram flowers.

Sweet Brogues
The delicate perforations along the top and the handle of the Capucines Sweet Brogues bag in Taurillon leather create a Monogram floral motif that contrasts with pale lambskin. Feminine and ideal to be used everyday, this PM model can be carried as a handbag or worn with a detachable shoulder strap. 

Key points: The Capucines bag is a versatile, 2 in 1 style: it can be worn with the flap on the inside or outside, depending on the desired look.

Plus: Exclusive, limited editions are created every season, so that those who love the Capucines bag are continually surprised.

Characteristics: Made of Taurillon, high-quality calfskin, this bag comes in four different sizes.

Reignac: Balthus

May 24, 2018

A wine that rivals the best of the best 

Balthus from Château Reignac ranks up there with the very best Bordeaux classics such as Petrus, Lafite Rothschild, Cheval Blanc... in blind taste tests. This 100% Merlot nectar is grown in two excellent kinds of soil, one that is rocky, the other chalky-clay to create the perfect conditions for this magnificent wine cultivated in the true Reignac spirit.


This vintage is made using a special micro-vinification technique, with the wine made right in the barrel, ensuring its specific characteristics as well as a higher level of sweetness than obtained through traditional vinification. The mid-palate is fuller with a mellow woodiness, due in part to the fermentation in direct contact with the oak of the barrel, that becomes a note that is systematically better integrated. The union of the finesse of the Graves with the power and freshness of the Argiles makes this quite an exceptional wine.

Key points: Six years of Balthus were blind taste-tasted by the European Grand Jury along with Petrus, Lafite Rothschild, and Cheval Blanc. The Balthus 2007 came in third.


Plus: Thanks to an improvement in knowledge about the growing conditions and the cultivation of additional vineyards, the volume of production of this vintage has been doubled, and today averages close to 12,000 bottles per year.


Price: 60€

Roger Dubuis: Excalibur AVENTADOR S

May 24, 2018 

High-Tech Teamwork

A stunning example of highly complicated watch making inspired by the automotive world, the partnership between Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse has roared onto the scene with the Excalibur Aventador S. 

Driven by a passion for the complexity of cutting-edge technology, a passion shared by Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse, this high-performance watch perfectly incarnates the signature motto of these two partners: “Powered by Raging Mechanics.” The watch is powered by an impressive system with a Duotor caliber RD103SQ movement with double balance wheel and a total of 312 redesigned components. 

This caliber stands out especially for its stabilizing bars that reflect the emblematic principal of the Roger Dubuis Astral Skeleton, by providing a stark contrast with the rest of the movement, as if the cover of a motor was transparent. Inspired by the longitudinal mounting of Lamborghini motors, adapted to aerodynamic design and racing car lines, the double balance wheel is buttressed and emphasized by triangular supports in the form of suspension. 

The Excalibur Adventador S is manufactured using the same C-SMC carbon fiber as used for Lamborghinis. The majesty of this model is highlighted by the bi-material strap in black rubber with an incrustation of green rubber and green accents on the crown and bezel. 

Key points: The Excalibur Aventador S flies the colors of Lamborghini with its iconic green used for certain pieces of this innovative watch.

Plus: This model is stamped with the Poinçon de Genève, the ultimate mark of excellence for the best in traditional watch making.

Characteristics: RD103SQ double balances with spring-loaded differential; Mechanical caliber, manual rewinding; 40-hour power reserve; Case: 45mm

Hublot: BIG-BANG MP-11

May  22,  2018

3D  Carbon,  Smoky  Black

A  leader  in  the  shaping  and  industrialization  of  high-tech  materials,  Hublot  breaks  the  glass  ceiling  with  a  case  in  3D  carbon—a  composite  of  polymer  matrix  (PMC)  woven  with  three-dimensional  fibers.  Ultra  light  and  highly  resistant,  the  case  houses  a  movement  with  exceptional  properties.  The  unique  architecture  and  ultra  complex  movement  mark  an  unparalleled  aesthetic  and  performance.

The  Challenge

The  hour  and  minute  display  is  driven  by  a  vertical  gear  train.  The  force  of  the  barrels  is  tilted  on  a  perpendicular  plane  by  a  transmission  system  rarely  used  in  watch-making:  the  90°  degree  gear  wheel  with  helical  teeth,  like  an  “endless  screw.”In  another  new  feature  for  this  innovative  caliber,  the  balance  wheel  is  transposed  to  the  dial  side  to  create  symmetry  with  the  helical  gear.  Vibrating  at  4  Hz,  the  watch  features  a  newly  patented  index  assembly  system.

New  Generation  Carbon

The  three-dimensional  carbon  structure  creates  unique  facets  and  reflections.  The  45mm  transparent  dial  with  smoked  glass  sides  reveals  an  engine-inspired  architecture,  allows  the  black  PVD-treated  mechanism  to  be  admired  with  its  polymer  matrix  composite  case.In  addition,  this  nouveau  movement  with  exceptional  autonomy  can  be  wound  by  hand  using  the  large  fluted  crown  or  with  the  help  of  an  electric  Torx  stylus  inspired  by  racing  cars.

Key  points:  Made  in  3D  carbon,  this  new  watch  dubbed  “All  Black”  provides  an  exceptional  view  of  its  seven  barrels  coupled  in  series,  and  the  display  roll  for  the  power  reserve.  This  multi-cylindrical  construction,  positioned  on  a  horizontal  axis,  guarantees  a  movement  with  two  weeks  of  autonomy.  Anexploit!

Plus:  The  new  Big-Bang  MP-11  is  also  available  in  a  sapphire  model  with  absolute  transparency.
