Quail Motorcycle Gathering Makes Texas Debut

For the first time in its 9-year history, The Quail Motorcycle Gathering took the show on the road with an appearance at Revival Cycles’ The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.

Guests of this annual festival in Austin, Texas were treated to a special preview of some of the bikes that will grace the lawn at Quail Lodge & Golf Club on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

The Quail Motorcycle Gathering made a trip to Austin, TX for The Handbuilt Show.

“For the past several years we have enjoyed hosting Revival Cycles and some of their amazing work,” commented Gordon McCall, Director of Motorsports for The Peninsula Signature Events. “Aligning our brands by supporting each other’s vision has been a natural fit, as we both are striving for motorcycling excellence. It was an honor to support their event and bring a piece of The Quail Motorcycle Gathering out to the folks in Austin. We’d like to thank Revival Cycles for hosting us, and we look forward to another great event in May.”

The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show celebrates the craftsmanship of motorcycle builders.

With the help of longtime supporter Herb Harris, McCall was able to turn a small part of the show’s footprint into a scene reminiscent of sunny spring days on the lawn of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. Perched atop a patch of artificial grass were three Vincent Black Shadows and a BSA race bike, as well as a pair of rare Brough Superiors supplied by Revival Cycles.

“The Quail Motorcycle Gathering exhibit was very well received and extremely popular with the crowds at this year’s Handbuilt Show,” added Revival Cycles / Handbuilt Show co-founder Alan Stulberg. “We wanted to further promote the desegmentation of the motorcycle show world, and we felt like Gordon’s display did that perfectly. Now we are gearing up to bring a few unique bikes with us to The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, including the world’s first custom Confederate Motorcycle.”

A special display gave attendees a taste of The Quail Motorcycle Gathering.

Come experience an entire weekend filled with live entertainment, lifestyle vendors and more than 400 motorcycles on display, only at The Quail Motorcycle Gathering. Attendees can save $20 by purchasing discounted pre-sale tickets online at www.quaillodgetickets.com. Full price tickets will also be available at the gate on the day of the event. Entry includes a gourmet barbecue lunch, parking, and gear valet service for those riding a motorcycle to the event.

Q by Aston Martin: Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition

Just ten examples of the Red Arrows inspired cars are being commissioned by Aston Martin Cambridge, each with special design features, hand-crafted interiors and graphic elements that draw on the visual language of aviation, as well as the skill and agility of the RAF’s globally acclaimed official aerobatic unit, the Red Arrows.

Founded in 1965, the Red Arrows quickly achieved a reputation for incredible precision and awesome spectacle. Beginning with the Folland Gnat trainer before adopting the iconic BAE Systems Hawk in 1980, the team continues to demonstrate the very best in piloting prowess.

  • Limited edition Vanquish S takes inspiration from the Royal Air Force’s Red Arrows
  • The third Q by Aston Martin – Commission by Aston Martin Cambridge
  • Tenth car will be gifted to the RAF Benevolent Fund

Spectacular British aviation skills are the inspiration for Aston Martin’s latest Q by Aston Martin creation; the Vanquish S Red Arrows edition.

The nine pilots of the Red Arrows represent a true team effort, transforming the razor-sharp reactions of fast-jet flying into spectacular displays that have thrilled crowds the world over, from the Goodwood Festival of Speed to important state occasions in the UK and abroad.

The Q by Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows edition is finished in striking Eclat Red, mirroring the instantly familiar livery of the Hawks and referencing the word ‘Eclat,’ the Red Arrows’ motto. A host of subtle details enhance the bodywork and interior, from white and blue carbon livery detailing to the white ‘smoke trail’ feature on the side strake. An exposed carbon fibre roof panel includes an inlaid ‘charge’ pattern mimicking the canopy design of a fast jet, while Union Jack enamel wing badges and a titanium exhaust complete the exterior package.

Inside, Red Arrows and RAF inspired details are used throughout, such as the Pinewood green inserts that evoke the design of the classic flight suit and Martin Baker Ejection Seat fabric, together with the green webbing seatbelts. The signature Red Arrows emblem of nine aircraft in classic ‘diamond’ formation is embroidered on the seat backs, along with unique sill and engine inspection plaques. The latter will be signed, 1 through 10, by the equivalent number ‘Red’ pilot in the squadron. The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team logo is embroidered on the transmission tunnel, and the rear of the cabin is finished in the 2+0 configuration, allowing for rear-mounted stowage of twin racing helmets, both finished in the Red Arrows livery.

The One-77-derived steering wheel is paired with a bespoke centre rotary toggle switch inspired by aviation instrumentation and switchgear, including black/yellow hatched design pattering on seat fold and door pulls. The door cards are embroidered with a graphic of the iconic ‘Vixen Break,’ a spectacular high-G 9-aircraft formation.

The Vanquish S is a high-performance masterpiece, a fitting culmination to this iconic model’s production run. One of the most agile road-going Aston Martins ever built, it delivers muscular performance with a finely grained analogue connection between driver and road. Just as the BAE Systems Hawk communicates every facet of the flying experience to its pilot, the Vanquish S provides a truly visceral drive, making it a perfect match for the spectacularly aerobatic Hawk.

Each Q by Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows owner will receive truly bespoke accessories that could include racing helmets, racing suits, bespoke embroidered bomber jackets and a Vanquish S bespoke luggage set, together with a highly-detailed die-cast 1:18 model of their car and the Hawk aircraft. A specially designed car cover and Build Book will also be issued. Fittingly, nine Vanquish S models mirrors the nine-aircraft formation made famous by the Red Arrows. The tenth car is being gifted to the RAF Benevolent Fund, the charity established to provide support to former servicemen and women and their families.

The Q by Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows edition is the ultimate showcase of how tailor-made design and detailing can shape a truly special automobile. Developed by the designers and craftspeople at Q by Aston Martin – Commission, the Red Arrows car marks another signature collaboration between Q by Aston Martin and its global dealership network, illustrating how special features and design elements can create authentic, intriguing and highly desirable limited run cars that appeal directly to their customers.

The limited edition is the third Q by Aston Martin – Commission from Aston Martin Cambridge, following on from the success of last year’s V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 Edition, marking 80 years of the Supermarine Spitfire’s first flight, and the earlier Vantage S Blades Edition, developed in collaboration with the Blades Aerobatic Display Team.

The Q by Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows edition was announced at the handover of the former RAF St Athan facility in South Wales, soon to become Aston Martin’s second manufacturing site in the UK. Strictly limited to just nine customer cars, Reds 1 through 9 are available to purchase through Aston Martin Cambridge.

Acura NSX GT3 Pirelli World Challenge

Acura Reveals Exciting NSX GT3 Pirelli World Challenge Liveries

 

  • RealTime Racing and Acura Motorsports NSX GT3 will make Pirelli World Challenge debut at season-opening Grand Prix of St. Petersburg
  • Peter Kox teams with returning Ryan Eversley in full-time driving lineup
  • Endurance racers Tom Dyer and Mark Wilkins join for Sprint-X rounds

Unveiled today, the RealTime Racing liveries in the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge will feature an exciting combination of the team’s traditional blue, white and orange colors for the team’s pair of cars – including RTR’s signature “squircles” – in a mirror-image pattern common to both Acura Motorsports NSX GT3 racing efforts this year.

RealTime Racing Acura NSX GT3

The work of Acura Executive Creative Director Dave Marek – who was also responsible for the striking liveries on the Acura NSX GT3s being campaigned by Michael Shank Racing in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship – the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge Acuras are an updated take on the iconic RealTime Racing design first seen on the Acura TLX GT.

Three-time Pirelli World Challenge race winner Ryan Eversley returns to RTR at the wheel of the #43 Acura NSX GT3, which will feature a white nose, transitioning through shades of grey to dark blue at the rear.

Acura Reveals Exciting NSX GT3 Pirelli World Challenge Liveries Acura Reveals Exciting NSX GT3 Pirelli World Challenge Liveries

Joining the team full-time in 2017 will be Dutch racing veteran Peter Kox, the original development driver for the Acura NSX GT3.  His #93 entry will feature a reverse color pattern, with a dark blue nose leading to white at the back of the car.

Both cars will feature the RTR “squircles” – orange, blue and grey ovals scattered throughout the bodywork, first featured on the team’s Acura TLX GTs from 2014-16.  Splashes of orange, a feature of all Acura Motorsports racing machines since the 1990s, complete the livery.

Acura Reveals Exciting NSX GT3 Pirelli World Challenge Liveries Acura Reveals Exciting NSX GT3 Pirelli World Challenge Liveries

“Our fans greeted the Michael Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3s with great enthusiasm, and we think they’ll be equally thrilled with both the looks and performance of the RealTime Racing cars in this year’s Pirelli World Challenge,” said Art St. Cyr, president of Honda Performance Development, which includes the Acura Motorsports efforts.  “Now we have two iconic liveries in two series representing Acura Precision Crafted Performance.  We look forward to building on our history of success with RealTime Racing in 2017, and building on our strong start in IMSA with Michael Shank Racing.”

Added to the RealTime driving lineup for the Sprint-X rounds will be Acura NSX GT3 endurance racers Mark Wilkins and Tom Dyer.  The pair will combine its RTR duties in the longer-distance Pirelli World Challenge races with the North American Endurance Championship rounds of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, driving for the Michael Shank Racing team.

The 2017 Pirelli World Challenge opens March 10-12 at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Florida, scene of Eversley’s debut GT win for Acura in 2015.

2015 Ferrari LaFerrari

Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling the world’s most significant and valuable collector cars, is proud to announce an enticing lineup of Ferrari supercars headed to the Amelia Island Auction on March 10. Collectors and enthusiasts of these high-performance sports cars will not want to miss the rare and thrilling examples that will cross the auction block next month.

“There is nothing like the feeling of getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari supercar and experiencing the otherworldly power and noise,” notes David Brynan, Senior Specialist at Gooding & Company. “Each of these Ferraris are limited-production, exclusive offerings that deliver unmatched performance and unique specifications.”

2015-ferrari-laferrari

2015 Ferrari LaFerrari

(estimate: $3,800,000-$4,500,000)
The car offered here represents an exciting opportunity to own the illustrious LaFerrari. This like-new example has less than 130 miles and was ordered in the rare special-order color of Giallo Triplo Strato. In addition, this LaFerrari came specially ordered with options costing over $124,000, including carbon fiber fog lamps, mirrors, dashboard, upper and lower body portions, wheel caps and the rare carbon fiber roof panel. Accent seat stitching was added by the factory and the vehicle is accessorized with fitted luggage, owner’s manuals, and a telemetry key fob. Issued with the car is a Ferrari factory Attestation for Special Series Vehicles, an identity document which asserts that the car is original as produced by Ferrari. When a contemporary, as-new model is offered on the open market, it is a rare opportunity to enter an exclusive echelon of automotive ownership.

1990-ferrari-f40

1990 Ferrari F40

(estimate: $1,300,000-$1,600,000)
The Ferrrari F40 is one of the last projects overseen by Enzo Ferrari himself, and a modern distillation of everything a Ferrari was meant to be. The twin-turbocharged DOHC V-8 produced 478 bhp and could rocket the F40 to over 200 mph. This car, chassis 03965, is the 77th of 213 cars built for the North American market and has traveled less than 1,600 miles. It has been documented with Ferrari Classiche Red Book Certification, extensive service invoices, a Marcel Massini report, and is accompanied by the original wallet, books, tool kit, and accessories. The F40, purposeful and sublime, is often called Ferrari’s greatest road-going supercar. This example represents an opportunity to acquire one in outstanding original condition with impeccable provenance and service records. Surely one of the finest, low-mileage US-spec F40s in the world, it is the benchmark example of its rare and desirable breed.

2007-ferrari-599-gtb-fiorano

2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

(estimate: $700,000-$800,000)
Introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 2006, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano supplanted the 575M and continued a company tradition of building front-engine V-12 sports and GT cars. This 599 is one of only 32 produced worldwide, and a mere 20 built for the US market with the extremely desirable 6-speed gated manual transmission. Presented in the very attractive color combination of Rosso Rubino over beige leather interior, this exceptional 599 GTB is offered with its complete set of books, unopened tool kit, battery tender, keys, window sticker, and VIP build book. The opportunity to purchase a late-model Ferrari with the iconic-gated shifter is a seldom-seen occurrence, and an opportunity to purchase the last manual gearbox, 12-cylinder Ferrari model ever made is an event unto itself.
