Nissan GT-R Shows A Ski Slope Who’s Boss: Video

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

The Nissan GT-R is a pretty versatile car. Sure, it can blitz the Nürburgring like any self-respecting supercar, but it can also be driven quickly in unusual places. Like a ski slope. A group from Sweden — appropriately named Team Iceriders — did just that, racing a modified GT-R up the slopes against a couple of snowmobiles in a video…

Honda Shadow Aero

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

With its retro style, low slung stature and comfortable riding position, the 2014 Honda Shadow Aero continues to be one of the most wanted cruisers in its class.

The motorcycle is built around a 745cc, liquid-cooled 52 degrees V-Twin engine with PGM-FI fuel injection. The engine puts out more than enough power to help you deal effortless with highway traffic and is mated on a wide ratio five speed transmission. As far as efficiency is concerned, the engine rewards you with a fuel consumption of 56 mpg.

The motorcycle?s speed is kept in leash by a single 296 mm disc brake with twin-piston caliper and a rear 180mm drum.

You also get a 41mm fork and dual rear shocks with five-position spring-preload adjustability that offer a fairly comfortable ride.

The 2014 Honda Shadow Aero is offered with a base price of $8,240.

Spanish property ‘a target’ for high-net-worth individuals

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Luxury properties in Spain remain a target among wealthy investors, one real estate firm has revealed.

According to Lucas Fox International Properties, the problems surrounding the country’s real estate sector do not extend to the top end of the market, with the firm completing transactions worth £19.5 million during the third quarter of this year.

Director at the company Alex Vaughan commented: "Spain continues to be one of the top destinations for high-net-worth property buyers. Our projections for Barcelona, Costa Brava and Ibiza, as published in our recent market reports, have become a reality."

In August, the firm noted that during the second half of this year, both Barcelona and the Costa Brava were set to benefit from high levels of demand coupled with a lack of supply of properties at the top end of the market.

Meanwhile, in Ibiza residential real estate was said to be sought after among international jetsetters and those seeking a sound holiday home rental opportunity.

Anthony Leaton, marketing director at Lucas Fox, predicted that this high demand from overseas buyers is set to continue in Spain and may even grow.

Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse Hits The Track: Video

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Race-inspired is a phrase easily thrown around by companies that both race and build road cars. But does it really mean anything? Sometimes, it does. In the case of the Squadra Corse, it certainly appears to. Bred from the one-make Super Trofeo race cars, but tamed just enough to be legal (and tolerable) for the street, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP…

Still no bottom for Spanish house prices

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

It’s starting to feel as though Spanish property prices will never bottom out, with values falling once again in August. While the rate of decline is slowing, prices dropped by an average of 9.3 per cent last month compared to the same month in 2012. Since the December 2007 peak, this represents a cumulative drop of 38.6 per cent.

Of course August’s 9.3 per cent fall is marginally smaller than the 9.6 per cent drop in July. This indicates prices are easing after tax benefits for home purchases were abolished in January. The greatest price contractions are taking place in metropolitan areas, falling 15.8 per cent year-on-year. In Spanish capitals and major cities, values are down 11 per cent compared to August last year. Declines are somewhat smaller along the Mediterranean coast at -8.1 per cent.

Nonetheless, some experts claim the bottom is in sight – if not reached – in certain parts of Spain. Research from estate agency Lucas Fox last month showed in Barcelona, the Costa Brava and Marbella, prices have dropped between 20 and 50 per cent. However, in Barcelona, values are beginning to creep upwards again, increasing by 13.5 per cent between January to May.

Price variations are also noticeable between different property segments, with luxury real estate seeing gains in places like the Costa Brava, Ibiza and Mallorca. During the first six months of the year, the average sale price for prime property was over €1 million (£840, 380). British and Scandinavian investors are helping to drive values upwards.

Lucas Fox co-founder Alexander Vaughan said: "The first six months of 2013 saw further encouraging developments in the property market in prime areas of Spain. In all regions we cover, the numbers of offers and sales completed were significantly up on the same period in 2012. It remains a buyer’s market with even the best properties transacting at 20 per cent to 30 per cent below their peak prices and sellers increasingly open to negotiation on asking prices."

Private equity investors drawn to Spain

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Private equity investors are increasingly being drawn to Spanish property – a good sign for the market. Following the sale of Sareb’s Bull portfolio, Goldman Sachs private equity and Azora have now bought 3,000 residential flats from the regional government of Madrid. The sale totaled €201 million (£171 approximately) and signals the highest level of activity since the market crashed.

The portfolio is comprised primarily of flats in Madrid that are part of a scheme to give homes to people below 35 with below-average incomes. Known as the Young Plan, residents would later have the right to buy a flat. However, the Madrid regional government has one of the largest budget deficits out of the autonomous communities and will use proceeds from the sale for public spending. Currently, it isn’t known how Goldman Sach and Azora will split the portfolio.

This recent sale is the latest involving private equity investors and Madrid city has recently sold a package of 1,860 rent-controlled properties to Blackstone for €125.5 million (£107 million approximately). HIG Capital also procured project Bull in the first high-profile sale for Sareb. The portfolio included a 51 per cent stake through the low-tax financial vehicle known as the Bank Asset Fund, giving HIG 939 homes, 750 car parks, storage units and one retail unit.

The assets transacted in the deal are valued at €100 million (£86 million approximately) and it is believed the sale will act as a catalyst for further purchases. Belén Romana, president of Sareb, has celebrated the interest that the Bull portfolio attracted so far. "The quality of the bids submitted shows the confidence that investors have in Sareb and the Spanish housing market recovery," he said.

Bayside Capital closed the deal on behalf of HIG and said it was delighted to do so. Chris Zlatarev from the company said: "This operation demonstrates our commitment to invest in Spain HIG and develop our business in real estate and debt."

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

While the world was expecting to see the new-generation Gallardo, Lamborghini decided to come up with a new special edition based on the current model. Called the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, this new supercar is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, and, according to the Italian maker, it “brings race track emotion directly to the road.”

The new supercar was named after the recently founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America.

When compared to a base Gallardo LP 560-4, the new Squadra Corse version is lighter, more powerful and delivers improved performance figures. As expected, carbon fiber played an important role in the developments of the new Gallardo supercar and many elements were taken from the race track and brought to the road.

Lambo will fully outline the new Squadra Corse at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Updated 09/09/2013: Lamborghini unveiled the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and this was the perfect moment to also bring some new images. Check them out in the picture gallery!

Cruise boost for Canaries

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

The Canary Islands property sector could be in line for a major boost with news that a luxury cruise liner is to make regular tours there.

Royal Caribbean International’s Independence of the Seas will be making trips all year around the archipelago, as well as various Mediterranean destinations, it has been revealed.

This service will start from 2010, with the ship being able to hold over 4,000 passengers.

Canary Islands property investment may be helped by the extra tourism, as may also be the case for Spanish Mediterranean destinations.

In related news, Gran Canaria has been recommended this week for its scenery in a report by the Daily Mirror.

This stated that the island’s interior has some "wild" scenery, with a variety of ecosystems, including the mountains that made up the last stronghold for the Guanches, the native people who occupied the islands prior to the arrival of the Spanish.
