Four years after launching the classic Big Bang, Hublot Geneve brings to us the Big Bang King Power (€17,600). The King Power pushes to the limit the qualities of its original design, and succeeds in combining both the expression of power and the feeling of luxury. The case has been shaped with sharp angles and straight sides, and features raised end pieces and screws. While the chronograph hands are completely new and made on two levels, with two different types of finish.
Aston Martin teased us with the V12 Vantage concept last year and now the company has released details about the production version that will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.Under the hood is a massive 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque. The company predicts a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). For comparison Aston's more mainstream V8 Vantage is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 which produces 420bhp and 470Nm of torque, enabling the car to run from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 180mph (288km/h).
The multi-year renovation, including a new Landmark approved limestone façade, is finally complete. This 5-story, 20 foot wide townhouse with elevator was originally built in 1901 and is located on one of Manhattan’s most prestigious blocks, East 63rd Street between Madison and Park Avenues. While the beautiful exterior suggests a traditional home, the interior is most definitely sophisticated modern and everything within is brand new, from the floors, walls, kitchen, baths, mechanicals, to the elevator. The house features a stunning bamboo garden and a large terrace with a wall of glass that completely opens. The kitchen is designed for the serious chef yet is inviting and overlooks the garden. The master bedroom floor, sumptuous bath and extensive dressing area are beyond luxurious. In addition to the master there are 4 additional bedrooms with baths, 4 wood burning fireplaces, a study with double-height ceiling, a finished basement with guest suite, and every imaginable amenity.
