    Special visitors at Bentley's 6 22 2017
    37spiker



    Published on Jun 22, 2017
    I got a phone call tonight about of a group of visitors who stopped into Bentley's Saloon and museum. By the time I got there most of them had moved on to their hotel. There was 21 cars on tour along the Maine coast. Among the visitors were, Barry Meguiar (Meguiar's Car Care products), Corky Coker (Coker Tire), Jim Grundy (Grundy Insurance), and I believe the real Cobra was owned by the owner of RMR Auctions, Randy Rue. I didn't catch the other peoples names. They stopped in to meet Bentley Warren and Lisa. When I got there Jim Grundy was sitting and talking to the museum''s curator Bill Macdonald. We drove over to the Colony Hotel after to see some of the cars. Oh, I guess they're A400's not B400's.

    If I Could Only Keep ONE Car...
    Shmee150



    Published on Jun 24, 2017
    It's a popular question from you guys; if I could only keep one of my current cars, which one would it be and why? Well the answer is the Ferrari FF and I've popped to RossoCorsa in Milan to drive it back to back with the new GTC4Lusso to explain why.

    There are other luxury GT cars, there are other sports cars, there are plenty of different brands; but none bring together the whole iconic package of a Ferrari, combined with the finish and comfort while still retaining the sporty driving characteristics that make the FF so wonderful.

    Of course the GTC4Lusso is the newer model, many things are upgraded and updated to make it even better and I would very much like to see one in the garage down the line.

    A bit thanks goes to RossoCorsa for the drive in the Lusso: https://instagram.com/rossocorsa

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    We went to New England Dragway today for the side by side events. The monthly swap meet and the Nostalgia Drags and show, put on by the Orientals car club out of Mass. Great turnout at both events. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the swap meet as well as the drags, seeing there were other events going on in the area.

    Thank you a million! The Shmee150 channel has reached 1 million subscribers, it's a number that could represent a decent sized city or even a small country and I would like to say a huge thanks to you all for supporting this channel and making it all possible.

    After reaching this milestone I wanted to take a look back at a few things, including my first ever video and first ever vlog! Please be warned, it's awfully cringy... I wanted to also choose my favourite experience that's come about via the YouTube channel and remember again the virals that have helped make it possible along the way.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    Lamborghini Huracán Performante - Here's What £210,000 Get's You On Track!
    Mr JWW

    We had the road test now for the Lamborghini Huracan Performante on track at the famous Imola race circuit. Here's what £210,000 gets you...

    29bhp power boost takes the Huracan Performante to 631bhp, and torque is up to 443lb ft. That takes the Lambo from 0-62mph in just 2.9 seconds and a 0-124mph time of 8.9 seconds. Madness!

    FLAT OUT in the Lamborghini Centenario!
    Shmee150



    Published on Jul 1, 2017
    This is the Lamborghini Centenario, let's go for a ride up the hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed! The most Lamborghiniest of Lamborghinis is presented here in full carbon with yellow highlights, one of just 20 in Coupe form being made (with an additional 20 Roadsters inbound too). It maintains the 6.5l V12 from the Aventador with power posted to 770hp and 690Nm of torque.

    At the wheel we have Lamborghini driver, Max Venturi, piloting the 7-figure hypercar as it flies up the track with me along for the ride. With the experience flying by in a blur I had a brief opportunity to have a play with the in car entertainment and telemetry functionality but mostly take in the epic noise that naturally aspirated V12 continues to make. The sheer ferocity with which it moves and especially the way the gearbox shifts, sends a serious sense of intent through your spine.

    Needless to say, what an experience, this is a crazy car!

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    FIRST LOOK at the NEW Porsche GT2 RS
    Shmee150



    Published on Jul 2, 2017
    The covers are off the new Porsche GT2 RS! The wait has been long but it's now here, with 700 horsepower through the rear wheels thanks to the 3.8l twin-turbo flat-6 with larger turbos and new water injected cooling. This car is fitted with the Weissach package, featuring the distinct carbon styling on the GT Silver paint, magnesium wheels and very much set up for the track.

    There is no official limit to the build number but expect the car to be short in supply when they arrive in early 2018. Porsche chose the Michelin Supercar Paddock at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed for the reveal, where one of only two in existence to date is seen here.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    1979 Mazda RX-7 RX7 in Red & Wankel Rotary Engine Sound on My Car Story with Lou Costabile
    Lou Costabile



    Published on Jul 2, 2017
    On "My Car Story" we're at Collectors’ Car Garage in Chicago IL at The Rise & Drive Event on 7-2-17.

    We're looking at a 1979 Mazda RX-7 in Velocity Red Mika Paint and this car has the correct slightly modified Wankel Rotary Engine.

    The car's Owner is Hector Castaneda. Hector’s has had the car since 2013. He shares how the car was purchased unassembled and in boxes. It took him a year in time putting the car back together before he was able to drive it for the first time in 2014.

    If you’re interested in storing your car in Chicago at 2500 W Bradley Pl, Chicago, IL 60618, call the office # 1-773-902-1200. Or go to www.collectorscargarage.com

    ENJOY!
