What happens when you combine the soul of an Italian super sports car and the functionality typical of an luxury SUV? You get the 2019 Lamborghini Urus. Unveiled in December 2017, this exclusive super sports utility vehicle out performs any other on the market. Though the Urus is a significant departure from the usual Lamborghini models (i.e. The Huracan, Aventador, and Gallardo), it is not the first ever SUV from the company. That would be the LM002 released in 1986. Its creation is meant to broaden the brand’s typical customer base attracting families, millennials and women as well as maintaining its loyal clientele.
Now Accepting Bitcoin?
Over the past few months Bitcoin has had an explosion in both value and awareness. From humble beginnings this crypto-currency is now valued at around $17k per coin. Imagine Lifestyles now accepting Bitcoin for all luxury & exotic car rentals, chauffeur services, and driving experiences. This form of payment allows you to have complete protection of your personal and financial information while sending payment quickly and easily online.
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems. Many companies are now accepting Bitcoin, and Imagine Lifestyles is proud to be on the forefront of this new all-digital currency. Your bitcoin wallet is not connected to your personal financial information, which means that you can easily send online payments without fear of your financial information becoming compromised.
Supercar themed smartphones are not a new thing, and while they seem to be fading out a touch, a high-priced gadget still makes headlines here and there. Like the latest Aston Martin smartphone, which ranges delicately in price from $6k-$30k. Seriously, it is dubbed the Aston Martin Racing 808 smartphone, though those wielding it could perhaps be perceived as dummies for dropping so much on something that will be old within a year. On the upside, owning an Aston Martin car would sustain a lasting curb appeal.
The Prancing Horse made it nearly impossible to become a proud parent of the fierce LaFerrari hybrid when it was born. Now it seems that at least one of the owners has a short attention span and is already willing to part with their LaFerrari. There have been others in the chosen 499, but this one stands out in the crowd based on asking price alone.
The Laferrari has proven that she looks good in any color–though the one for sale in this instance is black. Shown above in signature Ferrari red.
The Porsche 919 is so well-loved that people will spend top dollar to have one…even without an engine. Porsche sold a 919 on Ebay recently for $106k that completely lacked the hybrid engine, but rather, included the appropriate measures to be mounted to a wall.
Is this the little engine that couldn’t even? Not so fast. The Porsche 919 model is such an enormous sensation that people will drop over $100k just to own the shell.
The Porsche 919 body was listed on the popular sales website as a non-functional unit and proceeds went to benefit Singapore’s SportCares Foundation, which is a focused movement using sport as a force for social good. The company describes it in the ad as a 1:1 Model Car chassis, whatever that means. Without a drivetrain, the supercar will make but a splendid art display for some lucky petrol head out there.
This year luxury carmaker Aston Martin announced the arrival of its response to the multi-million dollar supercar competition that has been escalating: The $2.3 million dollar Aston Martin Vulcan. The track focused Vulcan is so intense and aggressive that the brand requires that drivers be specially trained to operate it in order to, you know, stay alive.
The Aston Martin Vulcan hypercar is in direct competition with other multi-million dollar rides and will likely hold her own.
Because the throaty Aston Martin Vulcan is not exactly ready at this stage in the development funnel, buyers are being trained on lesser models like the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. The Vantage S is sibling to the rare One-77, featuring its mostly carbon fiber frame tub and full FIA specification roll cage. Just 24 Aston Martin Vulcan cars will be produced, bringing in approximately $56 million for the company. Because it is likely that all units will be presold, it will make a fine payday, indeed!
The last Porsche owned by legendary Steve McQueen is officially for sale, and it boasts a rather James Bond style feature: a kill switch on the dash to turn off the rear lights. The star added this modification to several of the vehicles in his fleet, and it does not require a genius to understand the purpose.
The 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo will hit the auction block August 13th, 2015 in Monterey, California. It is expected to change hands for over a million USD.
The Steve McQueen Porsche 930 Turbo at a glance:

The Koenigsegg Regera is but another example of those crazy Swedes and their ability to craft some of the worlds most blisteringly fast and breathtaking machines. Koenigsegg has been building speed demons for just 20 years, yet is always among the first brands uttered when the top fastest cars come up in conversation.
The Koenigsegg Regera is a potent little number pushing forth 1,500 horsepower from her shapely frame. That is roughly 300 more than the Bugatti Veyron, which held the title of ‘Fastest Production Car’ for a few years. The Regera was officially introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show as a means for the young-ish company to continue pushing the envelope and to perhaps flex a bit of muscle at the Hennessey Venom GT, which now holds the fastest production car record.
While it would seem that beachfront property would have little trouble selling itself, marketers have been forced to become quite creative following the economic downturn years ago. The Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles, Florida, is a shining beacon of that willingness to go further. The luxury design tower is already nearly sold out, because who wouldn’t want an elevator to deliver their car directly to their door?
The exclusive Porsche Design Tower is located in Sunny Isles, which is just a few blocks north of South Beach. Because South Florida is a preferred playground for the wealthy, what better place for the towers? Buyers are recognizing the luxury logo as a serious asset–especially with all of the added perks the Porsche residences have to offer.
