Active Autowerke

18 Mar

This video is the 30’th Anniversary of Active Autowerke. Their one of the best tuning companies out there for any BMW. I got goosebumps since i hit the play button from how good it is. Its the effort put in to videos like this that fuel my passion for the Automotive World.

PS: I highly recommend watching it in HD on YouTube.

GulfRun6 Visit

30 Jan

Just came back from a visit to Bahrain International Circuit for the GulfRun 6 Event. They just keep getting better and better every year Mashalla. I took a little bit under one thousand pictures so im going to share only some of them that i liked. I took minimal close up shots because i was focusing on pan photography throughout the two days.

This is the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Superleggera. It was there for Taxi rides! Can you imagine a taxi ride in that….

The rest of the taxi rides except that E92 M3 was an actual participant, love that car. That Audi S5 is just screaming “Drive me!”

The SLS AMG. Enough Said…

Some pics of the action above and below.

Those instructors in the Lambo’s sure know how to drift tease on the turns…

That Mini sure has a surprise coming up in  few seconds involving various types of backfires, especially that White GTR’s.

Pit lane above. Below are pictures that i had fun taking 😀

The exhaust note of those Lambos above and below…..one of the best on the track.

That Ford GT did not have an exhaust note, it had a mixed orchestral high note that frikin bended my mind on each Rev and on the straights i just melted.

Everyones lining up for the Video then its off to the drift event.

All 10 Cylinders and Twin Turbo’s of the RS6 being flogged at the drift track.

ISF

I love that car!!!!

The king of the track. The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with full bolt ons. Mashalla it really is “all about the driver”.

His helmet, that of the Punishers. The winner phrased it this way “Veni, Vedi, Vici” He came, he Saw, and he definitely conquered.

Sorry if the pics weren’t high quality, i tried my best. Enjoy 😀

GulfRun6 Car Wash

14 Jan

Hello everyone, been a long time since i posted, but gonna skip the small talk so here goes. I very recently went to a GulfRun Carshow and started taking pics, im still a beginner in photography i must say as taking good photos of people is easier for me than supercars. The pic above is of the Work Wheels of a beautiful Honda NSX-R. Even though my heart is for german engineering i still respect Japanese precision.

Above is a magnificent Mercedes SLR 722-S. I must say this car (or masterpiece) has the best sounding exhaust i have ever heard and will hear in my life. During last years GulfRun i was only waiting for a normal SLR to pass by for the intoxicating sound of that car.

The front end of a Lamborghini LP560-4. Resembles a Jet Fighter ready to cut through the speed of sound.

That car is just daring me. I felt like i was going to be run over while taking that pic, but yet it was standing still with a befitting presence that screams “get the hell out of my way”.

Above are two  pictures that resemble a car that recreated the whole front fascia of modern LED head lights, the Audi R8 V10.

A Porsche 997.2 Turbo with my favorite Porsche wheels. The AutoBahn Stormer, a nickname any Porsche Turbo deserves and willfully keeps its throne at.

Last but not least another Audi R8, but the iconic V8 this time.

Pics taken, shot, and edited by yours truly.

Till next time, hope you enjoyed this post 😀

New DawnRun Goodies

22 Sep

This is a video i took of some of the participants in the last DawnRun, it seems like its gonna occur more often 😀

This is a really short video of what an engine orchestra sounds like 😀

PS: Highly advise you to watch them in HD (720p) if possible for your viewing pleasure :D.

Enjoy! 😀

Pro Kart Racing

14 Sep

I went to the ProKart Racing track a few days ago and let me tell you..it was amazing! If it is your first time going you will have some difficulties finding the place but you will get there eventually :D. I could not believe how huge the track was, maybe 1 lap is 1.3 Kilometers respectively. The Go-Karts are great, they work on two separate engines producing 11Hp together. I payed 5kd for 8 minutes on the track, but from the fun it felt like 2 minutes :(, so i eventually ended up going twice :D.  They provide you with racing helmets, sanitary caps, and gloves if you ask them. They also explain the safety procedures that are involved in Kart racing. Overall it was a fun experience and i would not mind going there every now and then to let off some steam :D.

I’ll leave you with a slideshow of the images i took over there of the track, Enjoy! 😀

A Beautiful Monster: The iND M3

16 Jun

Well words seriously cannot describe how legendary this car looks to me. If you know me you will know for a fact that i love the E92  BMW M3, and for iND to build such a beautiful custom build i can only dream of owning it. Some people think that cars are material things that depreciate over time, but in my eyes this car will never depreciate, it will only increase in sentimental value!

The stance, the color, the rims, the exhaust are all in perfect harmony and don’t disagree with each other whatsoever. The interior has been stripped down to only fit the front dashboard and the two front seats. The interior trim is all custom carbon fiber made just for this car. This car re-defines the term unique in my dictionary, because saying its unique is a true understatement. All automotive enthusiasts who just take a quick glance at this car knows its status out there in the modified world of cars.

Ill leave you with more pictures, but for this car i warn you, each picture contains a million unique words! 😛

The last picture is my favorite :D, with custom BBS wheels called “BBS FI” that cost no less than 4000KD, yeah iND were not kidding when they meant “custom built”.

The Engine was fully rebuilt to include a Stage 2 ESS Supercharger putting about 700 Horsepower at the crank, an inrease of about 260 Hp from the stock 420Hp M3, priceless.
