Most automotive enthusiasts consider cars to be art.  So they get really excited when they see an art piece of an art piece.  Lost? Stay with me here… There is a really talented automotive artist who goes by Dsalni.  He has a pretty cool blog in which he shows off all his latest works.  The awesome part is that his renderings can be ordered as prints through his online store!  He also puts some of his designs on shirts and hoodies so there is also that.  Basically anything from Dsalni’s store would make a pretty fresh gift.  If you don’t see anything you like in his store you may be able to contact him to commission a custom, personalized piece.  However, he is a busy man and might not be able to finish it before Christmas but it is worth a shot!  Check out his online store at the source link below!

Hype Event: Ollo Clip Photo Exhibition “Shutter Speed”

Posted on 10.24.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

OlloClip_Exhibition_2014_small

I think its safe to say that just about anyone who owns an iPhone knows what an Ollo Clip is.  For those of you who don’t allow me to explain.  The Ollo Clip is a genius little gadget fitted with two lenses, with four configurations (Fish Eye, Wide Angle, Macro 10X, Macro 15X) that slides over the built in iPhone’s camera lens and gives users the ability to take really cool shots that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.  For the last year or so Ollo Clip has reached out to a few key figures in the automotive culture, gave them an Ollo Clip and told them to have at it.  Each individual was allowed to take the most creative pictures they could come up with as they conducted their daily goings on be it racing, building cars, organizing car shows, etc.

Last night Ollo Clip gathered the best pictures from the instagram accounts of those users and put them together into a pretty cool photography exhibit dubbed “Shutter Speed” at the Box Eight studio in downtown Los Angeles.  It was a pretty cool event, though relatively low key compared to some of the other events I’ve been to.  But it was a great atmosphere with cool people and a few pretty cool cars sitting dead center to provide extra eye candy on top of the awesome pictures on display.  To get a taste of what it was like click on the thumbnails.  If you like the idea of being able to expand your phone’s photo capabilities I would highly recommend checking out Ollo Clip.  They are pretty much the go to external lens for iPhones and they just announced a model for the iPhone 6.  If you’re an android person there is an Ollo Clip out now for Samsung Galaxy phones.

Hype: Want To Smell Like A Lamborghini? Well You Can With New “L” Cologne. Seriously, Lamborghini Made A Cologne…

Posted on 02.21.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Lamborghini_Cologne_small

Some people love “new car” smell.  I think its pretty nice too (as long as it doesn’t contain harmful toxins) but I think one of the best new car smells comes from exotic cars.  Frequenting car shows as much as I do I have inhaled my share of alcantara, leather, carbon fiber, and ABS plastic in my time and it is quite intoxicating (no pun intended).  However, would anyone of you actually want to wear that scent?  Lamborghini is hoping so as they just announced that they will be launching their own cologne at the Geneva Motorshow called “L”.   Seriously, this is happening.  Crazy right?

I am sure that “L” won’t actually smell like a Lamborghini interior but technically its possible since they never say it won’t smell like a Lamborghini…  If you are interested in a leather wrapped bottle of “L” then get in line fast as Lamborghini says they will only produce 999 vials of the stuff.  If you miss out then don’t fret too much because Lamborghini says they will actually produce three more scents after this in the near future.  I wonder what the next one will be; Acuqa Di Exhaust Pour Homme perhaps?

Press Release:

Sant’Agata Bolognese, 21 February 2014. Collezione Automobili Lamborghini, the clothing and accessories line with the DNA of the House of the Raging Bulls’ super sports cars, presents the Spring-Summer 2014 collection.

The must-have

The newest product in the collection is definitely the perfume “L”, for men who love essential, unique luxury. The first of the four fragrances, a limited edition with only 999 produced, will be presented in a world preview at the Geneva Show on 4 March. The perfume, designed by a creative team and perfume experts for Collezione Automobili Lamborghini, extends the values of the worldfamous super sports car brand to an olfactory experience. “L” is the first perfume by Collezione Automobili Lamborghini, extending the product range for the first time to fragrances for men.

Hype Art: EAT SLEEP RACE Limited Edition Canvas Prints Illustrate Tuning As A Weapon

Posted on 01.09.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

EatSleepRace_LimitedCanvasPrints

The guys from EAT SLEEP RACE are trying to add some culture to our lives with a few extremely limited edition prints of some of their latest artwork.  The first, dubbed “shootout” seamlessly combines the aesthetics of a turbocharger with that of an old school revolver while the second portrays spark plugs as ammunition.  Both pieces are pretty provocative but visually pleasing at the same time.  I’d totally rock both of these on my wall.  There is only one problem: they are only printing 12 of each!  Yes, only 12! If you want one you better move quick!  You can order the prints online right now for $29.99 each and once they are sold out they will not be reproduced! Just click the source link below to go straight to the EAT SLEEP RACE store to buy one.

Hype: GARAGETUNED Mazda RX3 Shirt Is About That Bosozoku Life

Posted on 10.01.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

If you are in to Japanese cars and culture chances are you have heard the word “Bosozoku” at least once.  For those uninitiated out there Bosozoku started out as a term used for Japanese motorcycle gangs but over the years that culture slowly merged with the Japanese car culture resulting in crazy over-the-top super widebody vintage J cars.

One such example is seen on the GARAGETUNED shirt above featuring a Bosozoku style Mazda RX3 illustrated beautifully!  If you dig it you can pick it up at the iLoveRacing online store for 20 bucks!
