Go Big On Luxury Travel In Florida

Whatever your occasion, what could be more memorable than luxury travel in the sunshine state of Florida? In particular, Miami will tick all the boxes and with over fifteen million visitors to Miami in 2015 it’s just the place for an unforgettable vacation. It’s about the whole package: the car, the accommodation and what you choose to do for fun and relaxation. Find yourself somewhere luxurious to stay and don’t forget to visit South Beach, allegedly the second sexiest beach in the world.

The Wonders of Miami

With over fourteen and a half million drivers in Florida, there’s a lot of other road users to be aware of and consider. Know where you’re going, don’t drive for too long and if you are older consider whether your hearing or vision will affect your safe driving. Miami, known as the “Magic City”, is located in Southeast Florida and is home to the Miami Dolphins and South Beach. If you want to experience luxury on the ocean then consider renting a speedboat or charter a luxury yacht. This will allow you to head North to view the stunning Miami skyline or head toward Key Biscayne and spend a day at Biscayne Bay. Other sights include Millionaire’s Row or even the Bahamas in one day.

Fine dining and cocktails

There are endless restaurants to choose from but if you fancy experiencing the delights of an award winning chef José Andrés, head to The Bazaar located in the SLS Hotel on South Beach. The Latin inspired food is fused with Andrés’ Spanish heritage and boasts both indoor and outdoor spaces. La Mar at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel offers Peruvian cuisine and is a perfect choice for stunning views of the bay, speciality cocktails and for a romantic dinner at the top end of fine dining. If perhaps you want a chain restaurant, but one that is renowned for outstanding food and service, Nobu Miami is situated in the Shore Club and offers world class Japanese food and is a hot Miami nightspot where you could sup cocktails once dinner is finished.

Dance into the early hours

If you’re a member, then Soho Beach House is must whilst in Miami, but the Cecconi’s restaurant which is part of it, is open to non-members. If dance music is your thing, then the club Story is host to many famous DJs and has sixty exclusive VIP tables. With a recent ten million dollar renovation and supposedly one of the best places in Miami to spot a celebrity, Liv on Miami Beach is a high end club offering a VIP entrance and valet service. If you’re looking for a poolside club with indoor space too, then Hyde Beach is located at the prestigious SLS Hotel and offers unforgettable poor parties.

Where to lay your head

When deciding where to stay live like a local and stay in a luxury villa or a condo on the waterfront or with a pool. Alternatively stay in a one or two bedroom residence in a hotel overlooking the ocean where you can benefit from your own large space but also from the hotel’s facilities. You can arrange daily, weekly or even monthly rents so you could even stay in a few places.

Florida is a perfect place to visit and it goes hand in hand with luxurious travel. If you’re going to do it properly it’s worth investing in the best rental car, luxury accommodation and activities that are experienced at the highest standard. Choose exactly what you want to do and then find the best options. You can’t do at that and not hire a speedboat or charter a yacht, surely a visit to the Bahamas is an essential part of your trip?

A Blast From The Past: The Finest Luxury Vintage Cars

From the Mercedes Gullwings of the 1950s to the Ford Mustangs of the 1960s, there are vintage cars to be found in all corners of the USA. And CNN reports, the value of vintage cars skyrocketed by 430% between 2005 and 2015 – making them an excellent investment as well as beautifully retro. And with luxury cars now taking up an estimated 6% of the US car market, many people are now combining two of their passions and searching for luxury vintage automobiles in which to invest. With that in mind, here are some of the best luxury cars from the history books.

Porsche 356

Nothing says luxury quite like having a Porsche, and if you want to combine your taste for fine brands with the retro bliss of the Swinging Sixties, the 356 is perfect. This rear engine vehicle is gorgeous – and even better, it’s still around. It’s relatively easy to find this amazing vehicle compared to other luxury vintage models: while only just over 70,000 of these cars were ever manufactured, it’s believed that 50% of them are still available to find.

Model T Ford 

While it might not quite top a list of the world’s oldest cars compared to the very basic models which came out decades earlier, the Model T Ford is certainly one of the oldest automobiles as they are known today. Although the original 1923 touring model cost just $298, it was seen at the time as a much more luxurious alternative to the horse and cart. And while seats in modern cars may be more comfortable, there’s no doubt that this model is a very rare commodity – and will make you the talk of the town if you can get hold of it.

Jaguar E-Type 

Jaguars are still seen to this day as an ultimate symbol of status and wealth, and if you’re looking to take it one step further, jumping back in time to the 1960s and 1970s when the world-famous Jaguar E-Type was released is a great idea. Made in Coventry in England’s West Midlands, this car is believed to have been described by the founder of Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever to have been made. Made even more famous by a range of popular culture references such as the TV program Mad Men and the movie franchise Austin Powers, this is an instantly recognizable vehicle that makes an excellent investment as well as a fun car to drive.

 

With luxury cars and vintage vehicles all the rage these days, there’s no better way to enjoy both passions than combine a high-status brand name or rare find with a blast from the past. Whether’s it’s a sixties Porsche or a sleek retro Jaguar you’re after, there are all sorts of choices available. All you need to do is find the one you like the look of best.

Volkswagen Reveals 570BHP Supercar

Volkswagen Polo R WRC (2015)

Volkswagen Polo: not the first car that comes to mind when you think “supercar”. However, with a revenue of over €230 billion, VW has the means to compete with giants in the motorcar industry. In March 2018, the company revealed that they had a new car out, called the Polo R WRX. This car was designed to follow on from the Polo R WRC, which was retired in 2016. However, this latest version is supercharged and with more power than ever before. So what makes this car so great in the world of exotic and luxury vehicles?

What’s It For?

The Polo R WRX is a version of the regular Polo, modified to defend VW’s World Rallycross title. It is an updated version of the WRC, which won 43 of its 53 rallies in its first year. With previous wins by Citroen and Audi, VW took title in 2017 with its Polo GTI. Now they are back, stronger than ever and looking to retain the title. The vehicle is designed for off road performance, but its power and speed capabilities put on par with many Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

Engine Specs

The value of this car comes from a 2.0 litre, turbocharged, four cylinder engine. It’s the turbocharge that makes all the difference, making this vehicle significantly more powerful than your average road going Polo TDI. Combined with lightweight materials and a stripped back interior, the BHP to weight ratio is bound to make this a serious contender for the 2018 World Rallycross. The engine will be capable of producing upwards of 562 BHP, making it more powerful than your average Aston Martin DB9.

Faster than a F1 Car

So what does all this power mean? Well, it means speed like VW drivers will have never experienced before. The Polo R can accelerate from 0-62mph in 1.9 seconds. This means that it can get up to speed quicker than an F1 car. With any luck, this engine will be put into VW’s road legal vehicles, so that real pistonheads can experience this acceleration on a daily basis.

While the Polo R is specially designed for rallycross, it is possible that the luxury car market can learn a thing or two from its design. Even on public highways, car enthusiasts want to feel the thrill of getting up to speed in under two seconds. Hopefully, the Polo R will come to market at least in one form or another so that we can all have a go.

Winter driving tips

How to Cope with Driving in the Winter
If you’ve woken up to discover the roads of New York are completely snow-covered but you have to get in the car, then what do you do? The arrival of winter often means streets are covered in snow, ice is on the highways and low visibility is common if you’re caught in a snowstorm. In some regions, it can become especially challenging to drive safely in bad weather, but that doesn’t mean you can’t drive your Porsche in the winter. Although the weather might slow us down, it’s not impossible to carry on regardless, it just helps if you’re better prepared.
What you need to do to prepare for driving in snow
Learning how to deal with driving on ice or on a snowy road is difficult as these kind of skills can only be learnt through experience. Remaining in control of your vehicle while you car starts to skid or slide can be tricky so it’s a good idea to learn how to achieve maximum efficiency of your anti lock brakes, before you end up in an emergency situation. This is particularly true as the older we get, the more our bodies are slower to react. For example, before getting into a car consider the driving risks involved as a pensioner or if you have a health problem.
What your car needs to have for the snow
To be as safe as possible for driving in extreme conditions, most luxury automakers offer all-wheel drive along with features for traction control for those times when grip becomes minimal. In addition, ensure your tires are in excellent condition and have at least a 6/32-inch deep tread in order to have adequate snow traction; preferably you should change to four snow tires, rather than just two of them.
What you need to have for your car
Whatever kind of car you have, a winter car kit is crucial to keep inside the trunk, just in case to do get stuck somewhere! This should include: a snow shovel and preferably some sand (or even cat litter) so you can dig yourself out of a situation if necessary; in addition, carry a blanket, flashlight and snow scraper so you’ve got every angle covered. Before winter even sets in, check the battery power and antifreeze levels.
Nowadays, luxury cars are expected to have it all: comfort, performance and technology which includes all-weather capabilities so most will do a great job of navigating snow-covered roads. However, when treacherous weather prevails, it’s often best just to stay at home.
