Exotic cars leaving on state street

Missed the car show? Here are the exotic cars that are leaving on state street.

Check these out! Gorgeous Nissan gt-r, Lamborghini, Bugatti, you name it. There had to be over 10 million worth of exotic automobiles at the car show and it looks like they all headed out the same direction. I’m glad this was caught on video because it truly is a site to see. But not only that, this isn’t your armchair experience, no not at all. This specific vantage point allows you to see how they handle. How’s the takeoff? Steering? How do they hug the ground. And the sound, oh the sound of it all. Nothing is better than hearing and seeing them drive by in real life. Heck, I remember as a kid straining my neck to see cars like this drive by on the road or trying to catch up with them to get a closer look. Here you get the full effect, live in person. Plus the street is empty, too which makes it even better. I do have to say, they are so low to the ground, you don’t think about that much. The cars are almost tiny, but that’s not a good word for it, they are too impressive for that. And with the regular cars in the show heading out on the same patch of road, you get a chance to see them too and how they compare. Are the exotics worth 5 times, 10 times, 20 times more? At 200k, I’d say yes. But when they begin to hit a million plus, that makes me wonder how much is hype. Aside from rarity, is a Bugatti really 5x better than a Ferrari? Then again, rarity and exclusivity is definitely related to price and value of something. Just a limited run of a specific model can up the cost quite a bit. Then there are all the extra special things they do to the car to make it worth even more. What are your thoughts? Chime in below.

Baltimore Auto Show 700+ HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Baltimore Auto Show 700+ HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Many of you follow motortrends and their car show if you’re lucky enough to see it in Baltimore, yearly. Well here we have an extra-nice, under $60k, 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT “hellcat” that is just an amazingly beautiful car. The black on black package makes it even more attractive in my honest opinion.

Check out the hellcat logo and srt which are all over the car, on the side, the wheels, the back even the gas cap. This beast is the fastest production car of it’s time (well, maybe the McLaren has more hp, but you can’t find that for this price). It’s 6.2L engine can go 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and do an 11 second quarter mile. That’s what you get from the 707 h.p. supercharged Dodge engine.

The 20″ tires match having black rims and a black interior to boot. Nice, right? Very nice. So, do you think it’s worth it? You can get the basic models of these type of muscle cars for around half that price, so (assuming money isn’t a big issue), should you double the investment and go all out? I say yes, and here’s why.

First, is exclusivity. If you’re going after value as an investment, you will want to have the rarest car possible. I have a friend who actually considers good ol’ American made steel (i.e. muscle and collector cars) as the best investment in METAL you can make. And that includes silver, gold and platinum being in the mix. So, with the top of the line there are even fewer of these challengers being made, making it more rare, and therefore more valuable.

Secondly, let’s talk enjoyment. What sounds more fun if you’re a muscle car enthusiast? Driving around in a regular challenger? Or the top of the line hellcat SRT that can go 0-60 (and still stay legal) in 3.6 seconds? Which do you think will turn more heads? The regular one or the one with the black on black package, deluxe rims and with a sound that will make your heart beat faster? The hellcat, of course. So if we’re talking ego (and if we’re honest, don’t we always?), then the hellcat is the way to go.

So far, it’s worth more because it’s more rare, and it’s more fun because it outlooks and outperforms it’s standard little brothers. But what else? What about driving? Ok, if this is going to be a daily driver and you’re going to decrease the value with a ton of miles, you may not want to go all out on this one. Unless you don’t care about resale value and just want pure enjoyment. I’m thinking since money doesn’t grow on trees, maybe this would be a Sunday driver, something you’d pass on to the kids when they get old enough (i.e. they turn 50, lol).

So there you have it. Now just which muscle car to get, right? A camaro, mustang, or mopar. This one definitely will turn heads and is on my favorite list. I tend to like the challenger over the charger, but that’s strictly my personal opinion. The mustangs are almost too common for me (but the new ones look VERY nice from the front, not sure about the back too much). And growing up camaro’s were always the family favorite (we had a white ’69 called “marshmallow”).


Kid buys dad his Dream motorcycle

Kid buys dad his Dream motorcycle

Logan Kugler, famous entrepreneur, blogger and exotic car reviewer has had an incredible life, from his incredible parents. They went all out and gave him a few memories that have stayed with him and helped shape him into the man he is today. They taught him how special he was and how he could accomplish anything. And so… he decided to pay his dad back. And you can see in this video the lengths he went to, to make it happen.

It’s hard to watch this and not become touched and get all emotional. I especially like all the planning that went into it. It was Christmas day. He didn’t know it was happening (or that his son was even in town). He told them he was vacationing in Colorado and even planned a layover in Denver to get a pic on social media, to completely mislead him (like all good sons do). The family, and he knew nothing. And here he goes and makes it happen, even though it’s not an ideal moment for him… He gets him the BMW 1600 of his dreams, a top of the line model. Loads it with gear so he can go riding immediately. Even has mom “prime the pump” hinting about it, and tops it all off with a trip for dad to the BMW rider training school in South Carolina.

…and it went off flawlessly. Priceless.

At the beginning of the video, where Logan is talking about savoring life, enjoying it, making it all worthwhile, he nailed it. He sums it up perfectly when he says “Life is short, time is precious, and I want to give him something that will allow him to escape his current troubles, even if temporarily… and hopes the joy of riding brings it back to him”, while he still has the ability to get out and ride.

Gumball 3000 Rolls Royce Phantom

Holy cow! Check out this Rolls Royce Phantom wrapped for the Gumball 30000

It is pretty crazy!

Don’t worry, it’s only a wrap, meaning it’s TEMPORARY.

Actually, they had another look planned but changed their minds, the video gives you the full story.

Yes, the classic look is great, but for the special event of the gumball 3,000 it’s been wrapped with some pretty slick decals.

What do you think of the wrap? Bold enough? Too mild if it’s only temporary?

The neat things is it’s REFLECTIVE, meaning it’s going to reflect light back, looking white if you take a picture, so in person will look a lot different than here.

Either way, black and red, or white and red lol, it definitely makes a statement.

What about the Wolf Pack logo?

That definitely reminds me of the “Hangover” movies.

Never heard of the rally? It’s at www.gumball3000.com and is a 3,000 mile trip that includes royalty, alumni and of course, a series of AMAZING exotic cars.

That’s why a simply phantom wouldn’t do, it needs some bling (the wrap) because that’s what’s going to make it stand out a bit.

It’s not unusual to see Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Bugatti’s and McLaren’s at the event.

Actually, to apply you need to put down your car’s details, they want to keep the bar high.

Then you’re off for a road rally unlike any other, through 3,000 miles of city and country, to sightsee and showoff and have an all around incredible experience with other car enthusiasts.

So you could be going through Dubai, or Britian, Monaco or a series of exotic locations, in exotic cars, having a bit of fun.

Just be prepared to bring your high-end, exotic along with you on this ride, because it definitely is a ride of your life.
