This excites us. Alot. And it should excite you to for the Lamborghini Superveloce V12 Roadster is something very special indeed. Aside from its earth shattering good looks, the SV Roadster will be the fastest series production Lamborghini to date. Introduced at the Pebble Beach Concours just passed, it is everything you expect from a new Lamborghini. Expensive and lets say again, brutally handsome. Further more with the current production of the Bugatti Veyron run dry, this feisty bull will spearhead the Volkswagen Group’s assault on the supercar market for the current time. Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann stated at the press conference ‘‘The Superveloce is the purest, most sports-oriented and fastest series production Lamborghini ever,” he added “The Roadster version represents our commitment to satisfying our passionate clients with immensely emotional driving dynamics combined with an extraordinary open air experience.”
The SV Aventador will sit side by side, with its hard-top sibling, at the top of the Lamborghini tree, housing the same biblical 6.5L, 750 Horsepower V12 engine. In your terms what this means is simply the wildest blow-dry you will ever receive, courtesy of a 0-60mph time of 2.7 seconds, launching you all the way to a blistering 217mph. As all you petrol-heads will know the Superveloce is the stripped out, hardcore line of Lamborghini, with said Aventador packed with weight reducing carbon fibre in which all unnecessary luxuries are removed leaving one product in mind. Performance.
Along with the SV Roadster, Lamborghini will also be venturing into SUV crossover territory with the Urus, the first in this field since the LM002 in the 80’s, with the aim surely to take the crown of the Porsche Cayenne. On the subject of the SV however, Only 500 hundred of this special car will be produced, with a delicious £340,000 price tag which is sure to tempt the supercar fans with the deepest of pockets when it hits showrooms in early 2016.
Not your usual cup of tea as collaborations go by, but then again thats what makes them more exciting. The cool London brand in YMC has teamed up with Stella Artois Cidre to create Le Poolwear, your answer for that awkard swimming pool to pool bar transition.
A brand known for its rugged utility style clothing, has expanded into wild patterns and colours which nicely represent its partner Stella Artois Cidre’s fresh new thirst quenchers in Peach and Elderflower flavours. Please do grab one whilst you have a read. The Le Poolwear short suit collection is made from an Italian water resistant fabric to save you the uncomfort of damp wool sticking to your skin as you enjoy a few drinks, getting you dried off nice and quickly indeed.
You will certainly find the collection, a run of 75 jackets and 150 shorts only, emblazoned with fruit, as bold and risque as wearing a short suit itself. However factor in the sleek tailoring, with blazer you can literally throw on as soon as you leave the pool, and you have a very useful and stylish little outfit indeed. As the pairing of Fraser Moss and Jimmy Collins stated “Le Poolwear is an impeccable blend of sartorial skill with continental elegance and practicality…allowing us to create something bespoke, beautiful and perfect for summer soirees,” with Stella Artois adding “our collaboration with YMC is a bold and exciting way to bring to life the spirit of Stella Artois Cidre this summer.”

The meeting of two Italian cornerstones is an exciting moment to be celebrated and that is exactly what The GS has done with the revealing of Emporio Armani and historic Piaggio’s collaboration to release the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani.
The iconic scooter which orginally hit the winding streets of Italy in 1946, keeps in check with its classic style, yet has a twist which beautifully captures and emulates the Emporio Armani fashion house. A little charmer which boasts a grey base colour however also produces subtle hints of green under certain light.
Furthermore Emporio Armani matte metallic detailing, achieved through galvanising the metal, can been seen on the side, with the eagle emblem visable above that cyclops spotlight and engrained on the fuel cap. We also love the classic patina brown leather seat which harks back to the vespa of old.
The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani, which will be available in limited numbers, is due in Piaggio retailers now and is certain to sell quickly so if you do want one, act veloce.
