The team here at FashionMR love vintage cars. Whether it’s European, Japanese or American, if it’s in stick and has a mean “vroom,” we’re hooked; not to mention the fact that cars of a certain vintage have more love and soul. We also believe that a nice outfit should be complimented by an equally nice car. It’s no secret that a beautiful vintage car is like one expensive, steel and rubber fashion accessory. A shiny ride is that missing piece in any outfit that will help facilitate the turning of heads as you cruise or burn rubber down the street; a vintage car even more. So, lets play a little game and match five outfits we love with five classic cars we lust after.
1. Turtleneck, Blazer and Slacks x Ferrari Daytona
2. Check Blazer and Green Slacks x Lamborghini Miura
3. Double Breasted Herringbone Suit x Jaguar MkII
4. Cream Fedora, Navy Shirt and Denim x Fiat 500
5. Double Breasted Vest and Matching Pants x Porsche 356 “The Outlaw”
We’re always open to suggestions. Feel free to include your car and an outfit setup of your own in the comments below!
Lexus just unveiled its new sport coupe. The new RC 350 F Sport. It features a 5 liter V8 engine boasting a whopping 450 horsepower under the hood. Kind of a not so hidden secret. Mostly it just looks mean and aggressive. Right up front is its unique mesh grill looking like an angry and pissed off automobile that just wants to tear the roads apart. It can surely do that with its 19 inch mesh alloy wheels. The interior instrument panel is the Lexus modern centerpiece. Featuring a moving center ring to give a race car feel to the drive, and with 450HP, racing is what you will be tempted to do.
The interior of the car is inspired by their LF-A supercar, which in it’s own right has a 4.8L V10 engine giving off 562 horsepower and a futuristic racecar feel and design. This is their ultra-exclusive street legal super coupe that is a direct competitor to the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche.
The RCF model will be competing for market share with other high end sports coupes, only this ride should be much more fun and comfortable. Lexus is known for having smooth rides, and why not? Having 450hp beneath your feet should be not only exhilarating and enjoyable, it should be comfortable enough to drive cross country and not regret the trip.
At the 2014 NY INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW we get to experience the thrills of the road and the cars that will occupy them. All models are on display, for every budget. And future cars that will roam the roads soon to come. While every company showed off their top of the line models that most people could not afford, all the major brands had their entire model lines on display. Infiniti showed off their new Q70L, a new upgraded model of their flagship Q line of cars that competes with the other luxury high end auto makers. BMW features its new X5 e-Drive concept SUV. Now giving the ability to plug it in to charge instead of paying for gas. Also showing off their brand new X4 crossover, which is a smaller version of their X6 model. Mercedes-Benz of course blows away the competition with the premier of their S63 AMG Coupe. Because why limit luxury to always having four doors, when you can have everything with just two? Another first is Mercedes-Benz’s Apple “CarPlay” debuting with their upcoming 2015 C-Class models. According to the press release by Mercedes, “Now the company has announced the official completion and release of the iPhone-based solution under the name “CarPlay” which gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. Fret not, not only Mercedes Benz has advance to this level of technology and collaboration with Apple, Volvo Cars among few others too are advancing their future concept series with this must experience smart technology.
You can walk around, sit inside and get to experience first-hand what it would feel like to own, even if it is for a couple of moments. Just don’t take them for a test drive, or you will get a one way ride to a NYC jail cell. While seeing the latest models is always interesting to say the least, the most unique experience is seeing the exotic cars and the future concept that will be available soon. There are plenty of those from companies like Dodge with their new SRT Viper to the Bentley’s , Bugatti’s, koenigsegg’s, and the Rolls Royce’s. It’s like being around automotive royalty. You can be so close with proximity and yet be so far financially at the same time. But the best part about the 2014 NY Auto Show is that there is always something for everyone. For the new car shopper that is looking to see next years and future models for when their current lease is up. For the mogul who is looking for the new hottest and best car on the market, and for the kid who just wants to see awesome cars that they see on TV and at the movies. It’s an experience for all, the buyer, the child and your chance to bond with both family and machine. While we were privileged to have previewed as VIPs, you too can catch a glimpse of the New York International Auto Show showing from April 18th-27th, 2014. Certainly, you will be inspired and perhaps be perplexed and anxious [ all at the same time] as to which would be your next ride.
