It Was For Sale? The Nürburgring Has Been Sold

The famous Nürburgring racing circuit has just changed hands for the loft sum of €100 million Euros, or roughly $140 million USD. Many were not even aware that the uber-popular track was suffering insolvency. German auto firm Capricorn Group purchased the struggling circuit. It was strange to read that the Nürburgring had been sold, as I did not know it was for sale.  The Capricorn Group became the proud new owners of the Nürburgring just over a year after the previous owners filed an insolvency application.

The $27 Million Dollar Setai South Beach Penthouse

There is a bit of confusion about which is the most expensive Miami penthouse. Last year, the Setai South Beach penthouse sold for a staggering $27 million USD. A few months later, a buyer picked up two penthouses at Ian Schrager’s for a total of $34 million and then claimed they were the most expensive. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t one penthouse for $27 million more expensive than two for $34 million? The Setai South Beach is one of the very best luxury hotels in the area.
