Kia Competition – The Power to Surprise

Posted by on May 20, 2010 in Cape Town, Cars | 0 comments

What’s that? Yes? You want to what? You want to go to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Aah, don’t we all (daydreams of such blissful moments).

Wait… That reminds me. You actually can. With Kia who has “The Power to Surprise”. See what I did there? Ja, I know you like it. Gosh, don’t distract me like that. Back to the juicy details!

“The Kia Experience is a global campaign whereby 12 bloggers from across the world have been invited to travel to South Africa for 4 adventure filled days which includes a ticket to watch a 2010 FIFA World Cup ™ game and a Kia test drive to Magaliesburg with Kia’s latest surprise.

You are probably thinking, “Hmmm now that sounds pretty decent”. Decent is not the word I would use, but rather AWESOME! A chance to experience the greatest showpiece on Earth in our native South Africa for FREE as well as testing out the awesome Kia … Aah…I almost gave it away there! Naughty!

That definitely sounds like the Kia Experience is going to rock your socks right off!

Ok, OK! Enough of me giving you the boring details of how you can also win a Sony Cybershot Camera, and a copy of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ South Africa PS3 EA Game.

Instead, why don’t you head off to the Kia competition page and get entering! Go, go, GO!

Zenvo ST1 2010

Zenvo Logo

This car is an absolute beauty. It seems to be based on a complete mash-up of all the features that have made most super cars successful, but yet it seems to find its own unique identify.

The car seems to be comparable with the looks of a Lamborghini, but yet, the tight body of the car seems to resemble its own identity. The exterior looks amazing from every angle and just makes you want to admire its beauty as you wipe the drool from your mouth. Though obvious Lamborghini comparisons are made when speaking of the front end, the ST1 has softer body corners leading along the main body line toward the rear, keeping it original. I won’t be surprised if this design manages to win an award of some sorts.

This bad boy has more than 1 100 horse power! Holy Moses! Well it does pack a mammoth 7.0 litre V8 engine, so you could image that some serious speed is definitely going to happen with this one. The big-displacement V8 is both turbocharged and supercharged, giving the ST1 a power output of 1,104 bhp and 1,055 ft-lb. of torque. In case you were wondering, that puts the Zenvo ST1 power numbers greater than those of the Bugatti Veyron. Yes, you did read that correctly. Unfortunately, for safety standards, this baby is electronically limited to 233mph.

Enough talk already! Show me some pictures!

Most Awesome Costume

Posted by on Nov 1, 2009 in Cars | 0 comments

My sister and I were quite bored last night. With it being exams and all we are not really going out, so instead stayed home on a Saturday night (sad we know). With it being Halloween we decided to be a bit different this year. So instead of ignoring it like we normally do and not bothering to get any sweets for little kids, we went out and got quite a bit of sweets.

I was browsing around the net, and of course Halloween was the main theme yesterday. Up popped this beauty:

I Pasted My Drivers!

Posted by on Oct 23, 2009 in Cars, My life | 2 comments

Finally I have managed it! It took my more than one try, but in the end I have overcome the demon that is the motor vechile license!

I had a very relaxed and chilled officer which I think made a gigantic difference. The first time I went, they were very strict and uptight which just made me even more nervous! I decided to take some calming tables before my second time which also would have played a huge part in relaxing me.

The officer and I had a huge DMC about religion, gangsterism and just life in general. It was actually very interesting hearing his views and past experiences, but more importantly, I think he wasn’t really paying attention to my driving! I only lost 36 points out of 192 out on the road.

As I pulled away from the hillstart, done perfectly I might add, he said, “oh no”. I thought I had failed, and then when I asked what was wrong, he replies with, “no I just felt like saying oh no”. That made me relax as I knew he wasn’t as strict as the previous guy and we could actually make jokes.

It is quite a feeling being able to just jump in the car and go where I want. Now the next step is to get hold of my own car!

Rolls Royce: Phantom Vs. 200EX

Posted by on Apr 26, 2009 in Cars | 0 comments

One of my favourite cars has to be the Rolls Royce Phantom. I much prefer rolling up in style than in just a fast flashy car. For me, the Rolls Royce Phantom is the epitomy of style. That is probably the car that I want to own most if I can.

Now all of a sudden, I see this new baby on the market. It is called the “Baby Rolls”. Now I am in two minds. Which one is better? The new improved cheaper rolls or the classic Phantom? Choices, choices, choices.

They are fairly similar yes, but there are differences between these two awesome cars. So which one would you take? The Phantom or the 200EX?
