Bugatti Veyron Black Bess, latest in Legends series

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Bugatti Veyron Black Bess, latest in Legends series.


As with each model in the company’s six-part Legends Series, the fifth and penultimate car — called Black Bess — will be limited to three examples and is based on a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

However, in honor of the Type 18 — the historic Bugatti that is serving as inspiration for this very special edition — the car will feature an exterior of painted carbon fiber with gold accents and a special set of alloy wheels.


Inside the cabin is finished in different contrasting leathers and racing motifs are embossed on the door panels.

One of the most famous Type 18 owners was French aviator Roland Garros who bought an example in 1912 hoping it would be as fast as his plane.


As with all Bugattis in the Legends Series, the car will boast an 8-liter W16 engine, 1184bhp and a top speed of 254mph, making it the fastest production convertible in the world. It will also come with a €2.2 million price tag.

The car will go on public display for the first time at the Beijing motor show, which opens its doors to the press on April 20.

Video: 23 Michelin stars in 60 seconds

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Video: 23 Michelin stars in 60 seconds.


If you’ve never had the chance to dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant, a new 60-second video takes viewers on a culinary journey across a constellation of restaurants that collectively boasts 23 stars.

It’s food porn at its best, providing rapid-fire shots of kitchens at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, The Fat Duck, Hibiscus, Mugaritz, and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.

Set to the soundtrack of “Food, Glorious Food,” from the musical “Oliver!,” the video goes behind the scenes into the making of edible art worthy of a Michelin star.

Seafood stocks simmer, eggplants are blistered over an open fire, and artichoke hearts sizzle in a pan of fat in a dizzying montage of food porn.

The video was produced by Orama.tv for The Staff Canteen, a YouTube channel created for professional chefs and food lovers.

Tudor’s Heritage Black Bay Goes Blue

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Tudor’s Heritage Black Bay Goes Blue.


Debuting at BaselWorld 2014, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay derives its overall lines and its domed crystal from the brand’s first divers’ watch, the TUDOR Submariner reference 7922, launched in 1954.

Like all models in the Heritage line, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay comes with two bracelets or straps: an adjustable blue fabric strap with a sophisticated weave; and the other a choice of either a midnight-blue distressed leather strap matching the bezel, or a satin-finished and polished steel bracelet. Both come with a folding clasp.

The new Tudor Heritage Black Bay will be priced at $3,425 on the bracelet and $3,100 on the leather strap (Source: TUDOR press release).

How to dine at Michelin-starred Mugaritz for free

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents How to dine at Michelin-starred Mugaritz for free.

 
Michelin-starred Spanish restaurant Mugaritz, which is currently ranked the fourth best restaurant in the world, will be hosting a free meal for six lucky applicants next month to open its “2014 season.”

Much like a theater production, the restaurant will be putting on a dress rehearsal lunch April 8, the day before their official opening, for six winners and their guests chosen from an online draw.

The applicants will be among the first to sample the San Sebastian restaurant’s new menu, developed behind closed doors for four months.

As a disciple of Spanish chef and culinary visionary Ferran Adrià, Mugaritz chef Andoni Luis Aduriz also espouses principles of molecular gastronomy and kitchen alchemy to elevate food into an elaborate dining experience.


To develop his menu, Aduriz works with scientists, anthropologists, musicians and artists. One of his most elaborate ‘dining seasons’ involved the making of a gastronomic opera, in which he commissioned a Basque artist to compose an original soundtrack inspired by the restaurant’s menu.

Mugaritz is ranked the fourth best restaurant on the planet in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards.

Registration for seats is now open and closes March 31. Winners will be contacted April 1 at 9 am. While the meal and drinks are free, guests must cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.

Adidas Originals x Pharrell Williams collection

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Adidas Originals x Pharrell Williams collection.


Adidas has paired up with superstar Pharrell Williams for the first-ever Adidas Originals x Pharrell Williams collection, set to launch this summer.

Some of the new designs will incorporate Bionic Yarn, a product of the Vortex Project, Williams’s environmental textiles initiative with Parley for the Oceans, which recycles plastic ocean debris into useable fabrics.

This is by no means the first high-profile collaboration for Pharrell, who is currently working on a unisex fragrance for Comme des Garçons as well as creating a line of limited edition t-shirts with Uniqlo due out next month.

The musician’s Bionic Yarn fabric is about to be used in an upcoming collaborative fashion range with G-Star, set to hit stores on August 15.

Previous Adidas Originals collaborations have included Jeremy Scott, Nigo, and recently, British high street fashion brand Topshop.

Hennessey Venom GT World’s Fastest Edition

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Hennessey Venom GT World’s Fastest Edition.


To celebrate hitting 270.49mph (435.31 km/h) and unofficially breaking the Guinness World record for fastest production car, the Texan carmaker is building three very special cars, each with a $1.25 million price tag.

In February, a Venom GT took to the runway at the Kennedy Space Center and managed to break the 270mph barrier, beating the current world record, held by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

Its top speed of 269.86 mph (434.30kph) was set on a purpose-built track that includes a 5-mile straight.

To commemorate the achievement, Hennessey Performance is building three special editions of the Venom GT with a special paint finish designed to evoke the American flag.

However, although Guinness recognizes the Venom GT as the world’s fastest accelerating road car — it can go from 0-300km/h in 13.63 seconds – its claims to being the world’s fastest production car are unofficial.



For a road-going car to be officially acknowledged as the world’s fastest, it must make a record-breaking run twice — so the average speed can be taken — and it must be deemed to be a true production car.

So, road legal, unmodified form a stock version and, crucially, be built in a production run of 30 examples or more.

The Venom was only afforded a single run on the track, and because production is limited to 29 examples, it doesn’t technically qualify as a production car. But that doesn’t mean that the car isn’t ferociously fast!

It’s super-light, thanks to an aluminum and carbon fiber body and is propelled forward by a 7-liter V8 engine with twin turbochargers. The result is a car that weighs 1244kg and delivers 1244bhp, the magic ratio of 1bhp per kg.


Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg has just officially unveiled its latest creation, the Agera One:1. Like the Venom, it has the magic ratio of 1PS (metric horsepower) per kg (1340 of each I total) and, the company claims it is good for “at least” 273mph!

Top luxury brands for China’s millionaires revealed

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Top luxury brands for China’s millionaires revealed.
 
China’s super-rich might have cut back on spending by 15% last year, but the country has not lost its appetite for luxury brands.


According to the Hurun Report Chinese Luxury Consumer Survey 2014, Chinese millionaires prefer to wear Cartier jewelry, Patek Philippe watches and Hermès accessories, while the wardrobes of the wealthy are stocked with Armani outfits for the men and Chanel for the women. Burberry was the children’s clothing brand of choice among the privileged demographic.

When it came to choosing a car, the Rolls Royce Phantom and the Mercedes-Benz S-class are the top choices for executive vehicles, while the Audi Q7 and the Land Rover Range Rover are deemed the best SUVs.

Top sports cars are the BMW M3 and the Porsche 911 Carrera, and the most popular ‘roadster’ is the Mercedes SLK.

Around 40% of the super-rich now own a yacht — a 10% increase since last year. The favorite brand is Ferretti. Meanwhile Gulfstream, the Embraer Legacy 650 and the Dassault Falcon 7x are the most popular business jets.

Chinese millionaires are most likely to drink Royal Salute whisky, Martell or Hennessy Cognac XO, although Macallan is the single malt whisky of choice and Louis XIII is the most popular imported spirit.

Moutai is the Chinese spirit of choice amongst luxury consumers. When it comes to champagne they’ll take a glass of Perrier-Jouët over Moët, and smokers will opt for a Chunghwa cigarette or a Davidoff cigar.

The top choice of private members’ club is the Chang’an Club in Beijing and the preferred luxury hotel brand is the Shangri-La. When flying business or first class, the country’s millionaires chose Air China for domestic trips and Singapore Airlines for international travel.

The Hurun report surveyed 393 mainland Chinese millionaires between June and December 2013 with a wealth of RMB 10 million or more ($1.6 million).
