Is This the Greatest Car in the World?

Greatest Car

If you have money to spare then you may own a super car or two, there are many collectors around the world who collect the world’s very best cars and simply have to have the very latest Ferrari as soon as it has been designed. You may not be able to buy the most expensive car in the world but you may be able to find a very close second best. Whether you wish to take your Bugatti for a spin around the Monaco Grand Prix circuit or you just want to covet it and keep it safe in your private museum, these cars are prestigious.

Recently hailed as the best car in the world at the World Car of the Year Awards 2008, the Mazda 2 excelled in every category to edge out the Ford Mondeo and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Starting with the exterior the Mazda 2 puts other so-called ‘hot-hatches’ to shame. The sleek and stylish curves make this award winning Mazda youthful and dynamic. This is not surprising seeing as the chief designer was also in charge of the sporty Mazda RX-8. The contours and lines in the body shape suggest that the Mazda 2 is ready for action; the sports version is even better with its 16 inch alloys and stylish body kit.

The interior keeps on form with the sporty theme and smart layout although it has been suggested that the plastic used for the dash could be better. The designers have made sure that there is plenty of space inside the 2 which is another plus with this supermini.

The new Mazda 2 is certainly not the most expensive car in the world, but it boasts being incredibly light and agile which is great for fuel consumption and for lowering your CO2 emissions. Out of all the cars entered into the World Car of the Year awards the Mazda 2 received the highest environment score of them all. This car is a great choice then if you are looking for a new engine that is friendly on the environment.read this post here!

The Mazda may be light, but safety has not been compromised. The use of high-tensile steel is the reason behind this and has resulted in the Mazda 2 being awarded a 5-star NCAP rating. The light-weight Mazda also means that it is easy to drive and is great for nipping around the town.

There are lots of different specifications to choose from which allows you to personalize the car to suit your own specific needs. You can choose from the 3-door or the 5-door and prices start at under 9000 GBP which is great, considering you are getting yourself the not the most expensive car in the world but instead, the “best car in the world.” I know which I would prefer.visit full details from http://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-is-the-greatest-car-salesman-who-has-ever-lived-2016-10

Greatest CarInsurance costs are reasonable too which shows that the Mazda 2 is a good investment economically. The Mazda also comes is a range of colors from the sporty ‘brilliant black’ to the bright ‘spirited green metallic.’ Oh, and then there is the special edition Mazda 2 Tamura Special Edition to choose from which is even sportier with its sports bumper, grille and side skirts.

It is not surprising that the demand for the Mazda 2 has been so high considering its impressive environmental credentials combined with its stylish looks. With motorists becoming more aware of environmental issues when choosing a car the Mazda2 is a great contender and compared with other ‘environmentally friendly’ cars on the market the Mazda 2 wins on looks hands down. So, instead of always dreaming of the most expensive car in the world instead why not get behind the affordable best car in the world today?

How to Own and Drive One of the Best Cars in the World on a Budget

Best Cars in the World

You want to drive one of the most expensive cars in the world that sets your pulse racing, even when you are not in a hurry. A machine that quickly learns how you like it (hot, cold or in between), and gives it to you just like that.

I am talking about living a dream, driving one of the most expensive car in the world, except that it will probably remain a dream, if you are like the vast majority of us and are unable or unwilling to shell out vast sums of money just to move around in heavy metal.

The good news is that it is possible to have the pleasure of a superbly engineered car for much less than you might think. The bad news is that you will have to do a lot of research and pay lots of attention to little things; otherwise the experience might burn a huge (and painful) hole through your pocket!

So, here is the low-down, using as an example the world-renowned Mercedes S Class 500L (type W220). Before you ask, I have no affiliation with Mercedes-Benz anywhere in the world, and I do not own any shares in them, their subsidiaries or suppliers.

1. These cars are manufactured so well that you should prepare to be amazed at how feature-rich they are. Even if you were not on a budget, it is always sensible to ask if you really need to pay a premium for rolling one off the dealer’s forecourt.

2. The Mercedes S500 W220 may be far from the most expensive car in the world, but was acclaimed the “best car in the world” by fans when it was launched in 2000. In my view, even after lots of competitors have replicated its features in their own designs, it is still has one of the best rides anywhere in the world. Yes there were a number of electrical and other problems in the early days, but these should have now been rectified by now, mostly under manufacturer’s warranty.

3. The suggested plan is to buy a 6 to 8 year-old specimen, that has been well used and looked after.

4. Look for cars with only one (or maximum two) previous owners. Cars like these usually come from multi-car households. By definition, it will have been rarely (if ever) used for the school (or even the supermarket) run. They cost anything up to GBP90,000 new, and so tend to be given lots of respect by their owners.go to this website from http://www.businessinsider.com/best-car-and-truck-brands-for-2017-us-news-and-world-report-2016-11

5. Most will have lots (if not complete) Mercedes-Benz service history, and even if the service book is lost, MB will have lots of information on your particular car, regardless of which dealership it has been serviced or repaired at.

6. Shop around on eBay, and you will be pleasantly surprised to find tantalizing prospects around the GBP8,000 mark, for a lot of car, with something like 60 to 70,000 miles on the clock. Because of the nature of the car, most of those miles will have been on the motorway.

7. Go ahead and ask for more! How about LPG (gas) conversion. Although they have huge engines (5 liters), their power-to-weight ratios make them very fuel-efficient. I know for a fact that they are significantly more efficient than say a 3.5 liter luxury brand that I decline to name. But if you have a well installed LPG conversion, you are in for a treat, as the costs of cruising the motorways will suddenly be cheaper than those of 2 liter cars. Expect the LPG conversion to cost an additional GBP2000 or so.

8. Read up extensively on the car, so that when you go to view your prospect, you know what to look for.

Best Cars in the World9. Be sure that it is obviously legit; being a luxury marque, criminals have a reason to steal or deal in them. Buyer beware!

10. It should not have any rust whatsoever at that age, and do not accept any explanations if it does. Just walk away.

11. There should be no leaks or funny noises. In fact, one of the hallmarks of an great engine in it is that it is normally whisper-quiet.

12. The air suspension should work perfectly. If in doubt, get a knowledgeable person or auto mechanic to double-check for you.

13. Confirm that all electrics and displays are functioning correctly. In particular, make sure the Command System is okay, and test the satellite navigation system.

14. Having satisfied yourself that your intended addition to your family is kosher, take delivery of the beauty. Of course you will feel distinctly lighter as you drive off, but that is not (only) because you would have parted with upwards of GBP10,000 (or more, depending on options), but it is really due to the air suspension!

Who says you cannot drive a top-of-the-line luxury head-turner, for much less than the price of a two-door less reliable boy-racer brand? OK, it may not be the most expensive car in the world, but if you treat it with respect, it will serve you for longer than the alternative, and cost much less overall to maintain and still turn plenty of heads.

10 Cars That Shook The World In 2007

Cars That Shook

These cars are not abstract “lineup cars”, but specific examples that became heroes of different stories in previous year – sometimes funny, sometimes tragic. Well, here is a top 10 cars that went down in history in 2007 and some of the most expensive car in the world.

Handicraft Ferrari

Now people forge not only works of art, but also cars. Expensive, status ones. For example, unknown skilled craftsmen from Pontiac factory managed to produce… an infringing Ferrari.

Fake is so careful and convincing, that only police experts could distinguish it from the original, they noticed that fabric did not issued a car with such vehicle identification number.

Police is searching for masters and they will surely have to appear in court, although, Ferrari leadership should better find them and offer work.

Producer’s Maybatch

Previous year Moscow was literally seized with a wave of most expensive and respectable car hijacking of some of the most expensive car in the world. Bentley and Maybatch were among hijacked ones.

At the end of November, police managed to find a hijacked Maybatch and returned it to its rightful owner! Detectives also found out 6 of 11 hijacked Bentley.see page from http://www.fayobserver.com/living/community/ken-smith-test-driving-cars-and-christianity/article_fa6a431e-1201-51d9-8805-fc1abec55c36.html for more tips.

Lamborghini

Super car Lamborghini Reventon priced at 1,48 million dollars that is assembled at a very-small edition according to individual orders was not included in the list of top 10 most expensive cars in the world sold in 2007. So, those who are expecting ordered cars, but do not want making a show of their incomes, can even throw dust in eyes of a tax officer. I say my car is not the most expensive one…

Mercedes

In the moment when he Russian soccer team’s destiny was hanging by a thread, owner of “Spartak” team promised presenting Croatian team 4 Mercedes cars – in case it defeated UK team and helped Russia out in the Euro 2008 Finals.
Well, the Croats really did defeat England! They did it at Wembley stadium! However, all-Croatian soccer federation is going either presenting Mercedes autos to charity, refusing to give them to the team….

Qashqai line

In the previous year literally, all Russian representative offices of foreign companies-manufacturers underestimated the growth of growth of demand for the most expensive car in the world. Result – lines for new models.
Nissan Qashqai put us in shock: one and half year! Really, one should have an inexhaustible reserve of patience or want driving exactly Qashqai, to stand such a line…

Ferrari suicides

An owner of classic Ferrari Testarossa 512 TR decided to test his car’s abilities, was not able to make it and run into a bank’s wall in a suburb of Madrid. The Ferrari was beyond repair.

Koenigsegg

Swiss company Koenigsegg assembled the first super car in the world which engine works on … biofuel! At the same time new Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition makes 1018 hp, 100 km acceleration from rest for 2.9 and gathers speed up to more than 400 kmh!read review here!

However, ecologists should not be too happy for Swedes and cite the novelty as an example to other manufacturers: , CCXR Special Edition does not correspond to new ecologic norms, Euro-5.

Pensioner’s Lincoln

What to do if you need to change a wheel, and one of nuts cannot be unscrewd? The simplest thing is borrowing an alligator wrench from your neighbors’ garage. However, a 66 y.o. American man decided to make with improvised means, he just had no alligator wrench.

Cars That ShookBut, he had a… shotgun. The persistent pensioner shot at that nut. Reports do not tell us about what happened to the nut, but we know for sure a craftsman shot himself in the end: the shot ricocheted from the wheel, came to his feet, belly area and chin. He should have been wiser and stepped aside little farther…

Champion’s Volvo

Volvo’s P1800 1966 odometer showed 4.2 million kilometers for 41 years of persistent exploitation. In 1998, this car was already included in Guinness Book of Records, as a car with the highest mileage in the world (2,57 million kilometers). However, its owner thinks the sky is the limit. He intends to reach a 5-million mileage by 2012, after this moment he is not going to drive anymore.

Thief’s concrete mixer

The shortest chase took place in Germany. A 55 y.o. house-builder, who ran a concrete mixer, grow hungry very much and came to a superstore. Taking a cheese pack from a shelf, he decided not to pay for it and went to an exit busily, where security guard stopped him.
