The AMB 001: Aston Martin’s First-Ever Motorcycle

There was an unexpected player at this year’s EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy. The 2019 EICMA, which took place from November 5th through 10th of this past year, is one of the globe’s most highly respected annual motorcycle events. Nobody expected one of the biggest names in the luxury car industry to make so much noise at the event.

Aston Martin revealed their upcoming AMB 001 Motorcycle at EICMA 2019. This is the brand’s first-ever motorcycle and the first collaboration between Aston Martin and Brough Superior. The combination of Aston Martin’s design expertise and Brough Superior’s engineering capabilities is a recipe for one of most cutting-edge motorcycle creations to date. Only 100 AMB 001s will be made, but this is just the beginning of a new partnership between two of Great Britain’s most iconic brands and it will be exciting to see where it goes in the future.

Pure Style. Pure Performance.

The AMB 001 was designed for unmatched style and performance. The strong body of the motorcycle, which is constructed with only the highest quality materials, features a carbon fiber fin inspired by Aston Martin cars. The motorcycle’s elegant colors and matte black wheels also match the traditional style of Aston Martin Racing.

The AMB 001 is not just a pretty face; there is more to it than meets the eye. This is Brough Superior’s first model with a V-twin turbocharged engine, and it puts out serious power. The lightweight, modern feel of the motorcycle along with its turbocharged, 180-horsepower output is a recipe for a truly unique and breathtaking riding experience.

Abstract Art: The New Seller of Luxury Home Real Estate in Miami

Considering how much money one spends on a home, they may want to design it in a way that makes it stand out. Some might paint their front door a fun color or plant an exquisite garden that captures the attention of anyone who passes by, but there is a new, bold design element that people are starting to use in Miami, and that is abstract art. More and more people are starting to incorporate abstract pieces of art inside and outside of their Miami homes, and we are exploring why this is.

Why Miami?

Miami is home to one of the most distinguished art festivals, Art Basel, that brings in artists from all over the world. This art festival has a dramatic effect on the culture of the city, and it can be seen in the luxury real estate market. The showcased abstract art that is appearing outside of more and more luxury homes gives potential buyers even more reason to purchase real estate in the area. These fantastic pieces not only look amazing outside of the home, they also are a benefit to the real estate owner in that they add so much more value to it. When perspective buyers are touring the homes, they can even see art inside hanging on the walls to get a feel of how to showcase their own art in the home once purchased.

Ugo Colombo, CMC Group President knew of the importance of art in the Miami community when designing the Brickell Flatiron with Luis Revuelta. The curved lines of the interior and exterior of the building create movement that draws your eye across the space. The design choices made by Ugo and Luis have created a sense of warmth and welcoming to those who now reside there.

Art Shows

Another strategy that real estate companies have taken to with much success is holding art shows inside of the homes that are for sale. This turns out to be a much different spin on the traditional open house and it brings in people who may not even be looking for a home as perspective buyers. Having the art in the home makes the visit more memorable and allows them to experience the house on a more enhanced level. Miami is one of the biggest cities in the country for art, and where there is art, there are collectors who need a place to put their art.

The Influx of Miami Residents

Many people compare living in Miami to a dream and they’re not wrong. Miami’s climate, entertainment opportunities, and atmosphere make it a gold mine for residents. Miami also offers no income, inheritance, or estate taxes. On top of these benefits, Miami has several other amenities that are very hard to turn down when looking to invest in real estate.

The Gold Mine of Real Estate

Ugo Colombo saw these instrumental strengths of Miami back in the early 1990’s when he began investing in real estate. According to All American Moves, “most people love Florida and would move to Miami without a second thought.” Often referred to as the “Magic City”, Miami is attractive to all demographics due to its contagious, lavish culture, spectacular beaches, and wide assortment of entertainment and it is arguably one of the best nightlife scenes in the United States. The glitz and the glamour are everything it is made out to be and that is why people hone in on this luxurious Miami lifestyle. In general, Miami is not just seen as a good investment opportunity, but it is seen as a location where people can live a good life, and this may be why there has been a rise in residents. What’s stopping you from sipping freshly squeezed orange juice in the Sunshine state? Your dream home could be waiting for you in Miami.

Prepare for the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster to Blow Your Mind

The all-new 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster keeps the same spirit as the previous Porsche 718 but with added elements intended for the future of driving. What makes the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster different from the rest? This vehicle has better power and performance as well as a bolder exterior design. The Porsche 718 Boxster was designed to blow your mind.

Power and Performance

If you thought that there couldn’t possibly be more power added to this vehicle, you thought wrong. The newly developed 300 horsepower, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with the same low and central center of gravity allows for an intense amount of acceleration with all the control you need for an amazing driving experience.

Exterior Design

The exterior design can be described in three ways: bold, sleek, and sporty. The fenders are designed to be higher than the front lid to accentuate the new headlight design. The doors contour in such a way that not only do they look sleek, they also allow for proper aerodynamics to give you that powerful forward thrust. Lastly, the exterior mirrors have a new v-shaped mirror base to emphasize the sporty look.
