I need to start posting here again…some Quail images/thoughts as well.

#dadlife has me busy but still need an outlet to just throw out some thoughts and ideas…might as well do it here.

Felt like I got A LOT done over 72 hours last weekend, Friday turn and burn to Monterey for The Quail with the infamous @jonsibal. #jonsibal #iknowjonsibal – Saturday, Cars & Coffee – swim class with Chase and then Family time. Sunday AM with the kids, then off to Ikea to do a train table hack for Chase’s birthday (Surprise but he can’t read this anyways)…

I’ll have a feature up @drivingline for The Quail, but in the meantime…

Some outtakes:

IMG_8836

Shout out to Enterprise Plus!! Got a cheap upgrade to this 328i, nice little motor with good powerband!

IMG_8840

Geared up, thanks @rstrada – I ended up wearing one to the Exotics on Cannery row event (more on this later) these are nice and soft. LOL.

IMG_8837

The ultimate navigator, happy that we stopped for a bathroom break LOL. @jonsibal #ipeedwithjonsibal – we’ve been on a few trips, just the two of us and he’s by far the best psychologist/therapist ever – cheaper too.

IMG_8868

Shoutout to @rjdevera – he was able to get Jon a ticket into Quail! Not originally planned, as I was just gonna drop off Prince BMW at Werks Reunion, good looking out. This is #teamhotness LOL. Needed a 4th Pinoy to get the full band together but didn’t see @samdu until later that day LOL!! (Yes, Jon and I are under-dressed but then again, we all can’t be RJ DeVera – Damn that guys fast!)

I actually got my ticket thru a long time friend – thanks Ganesh!!!

f1GTR_

Worth the drive itself, the final example of the mighty McLaren F1 GTR LongTail…I described seeing this car as a “Unicorn, riding a Unicorn” – we got to hear it run as well, such an amazing machine. Diecast car in real life LOL.

P1GTR_

This isn’t a McLaren ad, I swear but man – they really brought out the goods!! Upon entry, the first thing that caught my eye – black on orange, P1 GTR. YASSSSSSS.

cfEnzo_

Full Carbon Fiber Exposed Ferrari Enzo. Yeah…someone did it and it wasn’t Mansory! Crazy. Nice quality, done in Italy right next to the Ferrari factory actually, at a local Atelier…(Fancy)

ageraXs_

Meet the Koenigsegg Agera XS – a one off Agera with some One:1 Aero parts built for the same owner of a Lamborghini Veneno (1 of 3) – Kris Singh. I should’ve started a hedge fund dammit.

ageraXS_2

That reverse dropped airplane wing from the One:1 – my god. It works too, just saw a video of the One:1 from Jay Leno’s garage…I SHOULD’VE STARTED A HEDGE FUND DAMMIT.

scg_003_1

One of my favorites, the SCG003 (Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus) – built off of what they learned from the one off P3/P4 – with a Honda Race motor in it!! Love this thing and James Glickenhaus even liked my IG shot of it…LOL! I think I sold one to this guy who was asking questions, by the way so JG should definitely lend me one to bring to Cars and Coffee…it’s only fair.

I’m gonna leave the rest for you to read at Drivingline.com – (Shameless Plug) – so go check it out!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video of the new Lamborghini Huracan Spyder

I haven’t updated here in awhile…

The good guys at Lamborghini Newport Beach invited me to the new Lamborghini Huracan Spyder release last Friday, here’s a quick vid from the event:

p1_hur_sp
Not bad, some nice cars in attendance to see the release…yes, that’s a P1. 

hur_lots
Tons of Huracan’s…I should’ve driven the Gallardo!

hs
And there she is, interesting color combo – but it works because it’s a Lamborghini

rear_hs
Would’ve liked to see a transparent engine bonnet, but the louvers are cool too.

interior_hs
Acid Green interior – very 918’ish – someone noted the lack of CarbonFiber, since Lambo moved to the “pressed” carbon for the engine, I’m guessing the woven CF is an option…

FS: OEM R8 Sideblades – wrapped in black w/matte clearguard. OEM color is Ice Silver.

The sale continues, gotta get the garage clean. Pair of OEM R8 sideblades that are ice silver, but have been wrapped in black vinyl and protected with matte clearguard from Premier. Blades are in perfect condition. I took these off to add the carbon fiber ones.

r8_blades_rear r8_blades3 r8_blades2blades_r8_1

 

First $400 takes em. That’s a little more than it’d cost to have them professionally wrapped without the clearbra.

FS: 20″ Modulare B30

Longtime readers (all 2 of you) will probably be pissed that I finally update my site and it’s a for sale ad LOL. Hope everyone is doing well, here’s the first of a few Audi R8 parts that I’m selling to get the garage clean:

Details:
20×8.5 and 20×11 Modulare B30 Monoblock in brush tinted finish
245/30/20 Toyo Proxes T1-R Front – treadwear 8/32 remaining
305/25/20 Toyo Proxes T1-R Rear – treadwear 8/32 remaining

r8_wheels_Forza

 

The wheels are the prefect offset for the R8, note that my car is lowered on H&R Springs.

 

B30_all
Shot of all 4 wheels and tires. NOTE: I simply placed the centercaps on top, I did not screw them in thus they do not look flush,  but they site completely flush when screwed in. I cleaned everything so I removed the caps obviously.

b30_rear
Shot of the massive rears.

b30_curb
Best detail shot I could find of a 1/2 inch blemish on one of the wheels. I don’t think people would notice this but I’m particular and wanted to point it out. This is in the bright sunlight and due to the finish it’s really tough to see. This wasn’t due to curbing, I believe it was during a mount/dismount.

b30_rear_reading
Rear treadwear digital indicator – got to use my new gadget LOL.

b30_front_reading
Front treadwear digital indicator – no more pennies for testing LOL.

b30_concave
For you concave freaks – rear wheel shot. This is a great offset/setup.

This set will fit Lamborghini Gallardo as well, in case you’re into that kind of thing. Wheels were never washed with anything but the same soap from that I use on the car (Hi Meguiars!), no harsh detergents. No TPMS is included, you will have to provide your own. If you have any questions shoot me an email at albert@albertroxas.com – would rather not ship so local buyers have an advantage.

Price: $3300 – please don’t waste my time or yours with trades or offers, unless you’re extremely good looking, can paint my house or offer some kind of ritual that will ensure that LeBron will never win another championship.

Thx for looking, I also have a few other R8 items that will be posted shortly.

 

Light Painting…

It’s been so long since I’ve done this, I forgot how fun it was – especially when you have such a badass subject LOL. Good times.

IMG_7909_rev_p2

Big fan of Supernova although Tarocco really pops in the daylight…

Carbon Fiber Goodness…

My friends over at Khoalty sent over this sick iPhone 6 Plus true Carbon Fiber PrePreg case right before the LAAutoshow for me to checkout. It’s legit CF, none of that fake laid or look stuff. Obviously light and I like that it keeps the form factor of the 6 (unlike my current Spigen Case) – the weave is excellent and when a phone is this large, it’s really shows it off well.

cf_case2

cf_case1

On CF accessories like this I often see issues around the cutouts, but as you can see by the pics – not an issue with this case. I also like that it’s a “full” case, I see a lot of half CF cases and hybrids but I prefer the complete deal.

cf_case3

If you need a carbon fiber case – this is the one to get. Check it out here.
