A joint collaboration between Harley-Davidson and the Tuscany Motor Company, the Ford F-150 is a dream come true.

Harley-Davidson is one of the most iconic marks around the world, and this new luxury off-roader evokes the same feeling of freedom, power and speed as Harley-Davidson motorcycles do.

Fat boy

The truck is nicknamed ‘badass’ and is coated in Vivid Black paint with plenty of H-D bar and impressive shield badges.

The Urus, being a Lamborghini, is styled like a sports car with additional ground clearance, and a slightly lower body. The newly styled front fender includes a hexagonal air-intake system to keep the brakes cool and a few freshly redesigned fascia elements. The Urus’s front headlamps are slim, and feature squared-off LED lighting elements. The bonnet bulges with diagonal lines giving the Urus a sportier look. The rear is unmistakable Lamborghini styling with an Italian flare for the dramatic.

Lamborghini-Urus

The 2019 Lamborghini Urus is graced with a plush and high-class interior with a transparent control scheme that is better and easier for the driver. The dashboard looks fantastic with its piano black and aluminium finishing. Under the hood, the Urus hides a twin-turbo, 4.0-litre V8 engine producing up to 641 HP, and capable of reaching a high top speed of 190 miles per hour.

NEW TUDOR #BORNTODARE SPIRIT EMBODIED WITH AMBASSADOR DAVID BECKHAM

Tudor’s unveiled BornToDare campaign takes on a new, modern day twist. BornToDare goodwill ambassador David Beckham was recently photographed by renowned fashion photographer David Sims.

The new Tudor BornToDare campaign by David Sims depicts David Beckham in a raw, emotive and classy mood in keeping with the authenticity and unmistakable masculinity of the brand new Tudor BornToDare campaign. Also on offer are a series of intimate videos in which David Beckham, an avid watch collector and respected Tudor Ambassador, reflects deeply on times he embodied the spirit of Born To Dare! How did it all start? As far back as 1953, Tudor watches were tested by Rolex, to ensure their robustness. The tests were, and still, are performed under the harshest conditions. Thus, The Oyster Pearl was born.

David Beckham

The tests of endurance involve extreme conditions like exposing the timepiece to pneumatic drill vibrations for 30 hours and 252 hours of excavation by hand, as worn by a miner at work. The watch is subjected to a stonecutter for as long as 3 months. Additionally, it is worn for a whole month by a worker on riveting metal girders upon a building construction site. The watch is also worn by a motorbike racer for more than 1,000 miles, and a particular emphasis is placed on the massive strength of these Tudor watches, along with their exact precision, super-efficient winding and waterproof quality in extreme weather conditions. This is the spirit Tudor’s BornToDare embodies and David Beckham is the perfect example of that ethos. The BornToDare mindset portrays the rich history of Tudor and everything it stands for.

Tudor

Ever since 1954, when Tudor released the brand’s very first diver’s watch, aptly named the Oyster Prince Submariner, the brand has been steadily solidifying its reputation. The original, hand-built, tool-watch was designed to fulfil extreme criteria including durability, reliability, spot-on precision and 100% waterproofness, with a realistic and reasonable price tag. Today, Tudor watches are the instruments of first choice for professionals, elite soldiers and individuals who have achieved the seemingly impossible on land, ice, in the air or under the water, with a Tudor upon their wrists.

With its distinctive flared stern, clean foredeck, sweeping looks and low-profile coachroof, Nautor’s Swan 98 is one of the most desirable sailing yachts on the market in 2018.

THE FUTURISTIC PAGANI HUAYRA ROADSTER 2019 – A MARVEL OF ENGINEERING & STYLE

The eagerly anticipated 2019 Pagani Huayra Roadster was unmasked in August 2018 to much critical acclaim. Restricted to a limited edition of just 100 units, the original 2015 Pagani has since completely sold out. In 2017, the Huayra Roadster was launched and presented to the public by Pagani at the Geneva Motor Show.

The unusual name Huayra admittedly sound strange. It is based on on the god of the Breeze, who was called Wayra Tata, during the reign of the Inca civilisation. His celestial vehicle was called Huayra. The traditional background lends credence to the meaning of the abstract word Huayra. The name fits the car perfectly.

The supercar has an AMG-manufactured V-12 supercharged engine that produces a torque of a whopping 752! The quality of materials and spaceship style are totally unique in comparison to other supercars. In fact, being so different in the upper-end price bracket is an advantage. The Huayra Roadster is not a hacked car, but one of a kind, with a limited edition of 100 units. The unmistakable design and space-age style are unlike any other modern day roadster. Add to that the exclusive nature of Pagani, and you have a cocktail of motoring magic.

The prestigious Italian car manufacturer has arranged for a substantial surge of power which is made even lighter than the car. It is based on a revised skeleton chassis and frame, with added custom configurations. The Huayra is an expensive roadster, yet its qualities are outstanding. The car increases in esteem as it is exclusive and available only to rent for specific periods of time, at a high monthly rental rate of $25.339, with a deposit of $700,000 required! Talk about exclusive, and the Pagani Huayra Roadster 2019 is as exclusive as you can get!

19TH CENTURY MOSCOW MANSION FOR SALE AT $88 MILLION

Moscow has become one of the most expensive cities in the world. Property prices have been constantly increasing over the last few years, yet no-one would have expected such a pricey house to come onto the market. Currently being offered at $88 million, the vast, historic estate is located right in the centre of Moscow, at the corner of Ostozhenka Street and Sechenovsky Street. The estate incorporates large, mature gardens and ample outdoor area which is perfect for private entertainment and parties.

The estate used to form part of a larger one that was partitioned in 1842, and its roots go all the way back to then. Historically, the estate block formed part of the grand-ducal lands. In 1890 the estate passed into the hands of a guild merchant, and between 1901 and 1907 it was refurbished and transformed into a 20 room mansion. It generally remains the same to this day. Current reconstruction and decoration work has been performed to ensure the estate has all the latest mod-cons, technological marvels and all the utilities entirely correspond to modern day expectations.

Luxury Russian villa

The internal furnishings are reminiscent of the period, with stately rooms, quality wood finishings, original paintings and crystal chandeliers. The rooms are all uniquely decorated, yet follow a familiar pattern. The mansion has a unique atmosphere seeping in history. One can almost picture and imagine high ranking Soviet government officials and KGB chiefs meeting there!

Russian luxury villa 4

The massive car park on the territory can easily accommodate numerous vehicles, and the sizeable garden near Ostozhenka and Poluektovsky Street has existed there for over a hundred and fifty years! Buying into this property means you are also getting a little bit of Russian history and culture besides an ultra-lavish abode. The price tag may seem to be a tad high, but with property prices in Moscow rising the way they are, it could even be a bargain at $88 million!
