Ugo Colombo’s Brickell Flatiron Nearing Completion

Ugo Colombo Miami Flatiron Building

Ugo Colombo, President of CMC Group, is nearing completion of his latest development project, the Brickell Flatiron. This project broke ground in early 2017 and is on time to be completed by this summer. Once finished, Brickell Flatiron will stand 736 feet tall or 64 stories high and will feature 549 luxury living units. Residents of Brickell Flatiron will have a 360-degree view of Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami at the rooftop level.

Brickell Flatiron will break records as the second tallest condominium building that is located south of New York City. Colombo’s inspiration behind this project was to bring the Manhattan lifestyle to Miami. Residents will be able to walk to shops, restaurants and public transit, so everything you would need is just within reach. The location of the building could not be more perfect at 1001 South Miami Avenue, just blocks away from the bustling Brickell Avenue.

Colombo’s exquisite eye for detail and luxury are obvious in every aspect of design, including, the cabinets, faucets and fixtures which were hand-picked and imported from Italy. Exclusivity and luxury were of utmost importance when the design of Brickell Flatiron was in the works to ensure a memorable experience for all residents that will stand the test of time.

2018 McLaren 570S Spider

The luxurious 2019 McLaren 570S supercar just got even more exciting with a convertible model—the Spider. McLaren has kept much of the performance of the 570S coupe the same, with the main differentiating factor being the retractable roof on the new Spider.

The roof will retract back into its compartment in just 15 seconds, and will do so at any speed under 25 mph.

The Spider holds the same horsepower and torque as the coupe model, at 562 horsepower, and 443 lb.-ft, respectively. They also both boast a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds and can roar up to 100 mph in around 6.0 seconds.

The power of the twin-turbo, 3.8L V8 engine will exhilarate you at every turn. The acceleration and handling can pin you back in your seat like you are racing in the Indy 500.

The only sacrifice for buyers of this Spider version is 8 mph off the coupe’s top speed. The coupe tops out at 204 mph while the Spider, with its top retracted, will have to settle for around 196. Still, this model is packed with speed and power.

There has always been a debate amongst sportscar enthusiasts regarding the extra weight that convertibles typically carry, and the effects that has on performance. However, McLaren has outdone themselves with this vehicle. They created a version of a supercar with a retractable roof, yet compromised next to nothing in performance.

You can come see the phenomenal McLaren 570S Spider for yourself at Ugo Colombo The Collection.

Pushing out 562 horsepower and 443 pound-foot of torque, this vehicle is a monster in terms of power. While on open road the McLaren can hit 204mph, which is not recommended for the regular driver.

The “Bond” Inspired Aston Martin Vantage

Aston Martin has recently confirmed that the design of the DB10 sports car (used exclusively for the latest James Bond film, Spectre) will inspire the next-generation Aston Martin Vantage.

Consequently, the new Aston Martin Vantage will share more similarities with the DB10 than the company’s latest new sports car, the DB11, will. With that being said, the company’s chief executive Andy Palmer said that styling cues from the DB10 will be visible throughout the British automaker’s next-generation range of vehicles.

“You’ll see the DNA for sure. It’s not the same—the DB10 was done exclusively for Bond. But you will see that ‘predator’ type look going forwards. The best way I can express it is that my mother will be able to tell the difference.”

Details about the next-generation Vantage remain undisclosed, but many believe there’s a good chance it will feature a turbocharged engine.
