The goldRush Rally 9ine

gr1

The Petersen Automotive Museum is a prestigious showcase which houses the most immaculate collection of cars in LA. To a 13-year-old car lover, it’s like a candy shop. On a Saturday and Sunday of May, 2017, it held the cars that would be entering the goldRush Rally 9. When you own a supercar and go on a rally, you get to enjoy yourself and relax.

After school, my favorite place to see cars is the McLaren auto gallery, which is where I met the owner of Madwhips. He gave me a heads up on the rally cars being at the Petersen. He also asked me to write him an article for him about anything car related. I chose the rally because it gave me an excuse to go see the cars.  My family and I raced across town to see these cars only to arrive just as they were closing the outdoor exhibit. I was talking to the volunteers there about writing this article and they generously let me stay to get photos.

I recognized some of my favorite YouTubers and I got to meet them. I met “Salomondrin” (Alejandro) and “Vehicle Virgins” (Parker). They were very nice and approachable. I told Salomondrin about writing this article. He gave me tips and advice on what to mention about the rally and kindly let me sit in his Rolls-Royce Black Edition. What an awesome treat! I was feeling nervous, but on the surface I was calm.

There were about 45 cars lined up on the top of the museum parking lot looking like rainbow sprinkles on top of an ice cream cone.  Most cars were covered with stickers for the goldRush rally. The first things I saw were a chrome wrapped Aventador SV, and a bright pink Carrera GT.

One of my favorite cars was a gold wrapped 12C printed with Leonardo DaVinci’s Vitruvian man owned by Ryan of Protective Film Solutions who wrapped most of these exotic cars for the rally.

What I like about a wrap is that it can be customized to an owner’s theme. Some of the wraps included Lego themes, a purple Jaguar F-type painted to look like the Cheshire Cat, a Porsche 991 GT3-RS wrapped in a satin black, a Bugatti wrapped to look like “Herbie the Love-Bug” and an aqua blue Rolls-Royce

BMW 8-Series Making a Return

bmw85

Back in the 1990’s, BMW‘s most opulent two-door coupé was the 8-series class of cars. The “base” 840Ci came with a V8, however it was the top-of-the-line 850Ci and 850CSi with the big V12s that really got everyone’s attention. Since it’s demise in 1999, BMW left the slot at the top of their product line-up empty with the biggest two-door coupé being the 6-series. Now we have confirmation from BMW themselves that there will be a new 8-Series coming to a golf club parking lot near you!

The embargo on the first official McLaren 720S reviews has dropped, which means that there is a steady amount of articles, videos, reviews, pictures, etc. on Woking’s latest supercar. The 720S is the replacement for the 650S, yet it boasts perfomance figures that bests the hardcore 675LT.
