Sistine Chapel

Where do you go if you want to have a super exclusive, terribly expensive and one-of-a-kind event – and you are a luxury auto company? Well, why not a place that is decorated with priceless art, in a city known for its rich culture in a venue that has never been used for public events ever?

That place would be the most Holy place on Earth – the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican.

This is the location for a utterly exclusive and super expensive Porsche event. The automaker has announced that they are holding an event in the famed Sistine Chapel as part of a 5-day trip through Italy.

The event is essentially a classical music concert that includes a formal dinner and private tour of both the Chapel and the Vatican Museums.  (more…)

However, we did find a very interesting video that we thought we’d share with you.

The Fast Lane Car is a YouTube channel that features everything auto. Needless to say, they checked in at the Detroit Auto Show and picked their Top 10 Favourite Cars on show.

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder

As many “petrolheads” would know, one of the most exciting realms of the motoring world is that of exotics.

With that in mind, our staffer, known to readers as SLD, spent last Saturday afternoon visiting Cape Town’s exotics dealerships.

The car shown above is the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, and the picture was taken at Bloomsbury. (more…)
