Aston Martin V8 Vantage

The modern Aston Martin V8 Vantage is a hand built sports car from Britain based manufacturer Aston Martin. Aston Martin has previously used the "Vantage" name on high performance variants of their existing GT models, notably on the massively powerful heavyweight Virage-based supercar of the 1990s. The modern car, in contrast, is the leanest and most agile car in Aston's three-model lineup. As such, it is intended as a more accessible model to compete with cars such as the Porsche 911.


The car will reach 62 miles per hour from a stand still in an amazing 5 seconds and will go on to touch the top speed 175 miles per hour. Also as a medal of the car’s performance, it ran and completed the 2006 Nurburgring 24- hour race finishing 24th over all at it, among the world’s leading sports cars! The only modifications to the car were a roll cage, racing fuel system, fire protection, racing seat, and hydraulic jacks. The car was otherwise completely standard, including a regular production engine, transmission, suspension, and bodywork.


The engine is front mid-mounted with a rear-mounted transaxle, giving a 49/51 front/rear weight distribution.The V8 Vantage is powered by a 4.3 L (4282 cc) quad-cam 32-valve V8 which produces 380 hp (283 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 302 lb-ft (409 N·m) of torque at 5,000 rpm.

Hidden Camera Detector

There has never been more insecurity in public places with more worrying hidden cameras around, almost everywhere that you go you are likely to be caught on camera, but there is nothing that we can really do about it, because it is the way that we live now. But there is also a growing amount of hidden cameras used for surveillance at work and sometimes even at home, whatever the reason there is now a small device that you can use to see if there are any hidden cameras watching you.

If you want to be absolutely sure than nobody is watching you this device will tell you in seconds, it is very similar in size to a Flash Drive, and so would not create much hype when you pull it out, but once activated this device will tell you if there are any hidden cameras around you, so you can decide what you next move will be incase a hidden camera is present nearby to save yourself from embarrassing situations.

The working is really simple you just put it on and turn it across the room or space you suspect has a hidden cam, the detector will scan and if a frequency of 50 Mhz to 3 Ghz is discovered it will then sound an alarm, telling you that there is a hidden camera near you, you will be able to adjust the sensitivity to allow the scanner to check variable channels and distances.

The laptop comes with variable options for all its parts as always, which you can chose to suit your style and pocket. I came accros a very nice and high performance item. It had a very significant 2gb ram, 2 Ghz core 2 dual proccessor, 160 gb hard drive, over 256 mb of visual graphic card and 1.3 megapixel internal web cam. The lappy has a 14.1" wide screen smaller then is trendy so to increase the mobility and decrease the weight!

Honda Civic Type R

The totally hot and very much awaited Honda Civic Type R is here ! And not only does it look promising it really is that. It has hit the UK markets since march 2007. The car not only looks great and unique but also handles really well, which infact is the concept of making this small hatch back. And it performs really well too with its 2.0 litre engine it delievers nearly 200 brake horse power.


You must extremely appreciate the amount of hardwork Honda has put into this small but able car. The interior and extrior both look remarkable. With the 18 inch spoke alloy wheels and the sparkling lights and dash this car really looks apart!

Engine and Performance:

The new Civic Type R is powered by the traditional idea of a great engine in a small car theory, high-revving 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine but the unit has been significantly fiddled with to improve responsiveness using a new balancer shaft and drive-by-wire throttle control. VTEC variable valve timing and VTC variable inlet camshaft technology continue to underpin the engine structure.

The car does 0-62 mph in an astonishing 6.4 secs and it will go on upto a top speed of 146 mph! Which is not at all bad for the kind of car this is. It comes with ABS breaks to give it the sporty edge when breaking and these discs are ventilated to improve performance. Under domestic use the car will give you a mileage of almost 13 mpg.

Bugatti Veyron

Bugati Veyron is currently the world fastest production car ever to be made. It is also the most expensive and most powerful street legal car. The car has a proven top speed of more than 400km/hr or 250 mph. It reached formal production in sept 2005 and was made by a sub company of volkswagon, Bugatti Automobiles. It has been named after a french Leeman race car drive who used to race for bugatti firm in the late 1930. It is one of the only supercar to have a 16 cylinder engine!


Veyron produces more than a 1000 horse power and that is the highest ever in a road legal car. The car has a tested top speed of 407.5 km/h or 253.2 mph. It was tested on the volkswagon test track in west germany by the top gear presentor James May. Incredibly he stated that at the top speed the tyres of the car only last for 15 minutes but the fuel runs out in 12 minutes!

The veyron reaches 62mph(100km/h) in under 3 secs infact 2.46 secs as stated by the manufacture. It will go on to 200 km/h in 7.3 secs and 300 km/h in 16.7 secs! At top speed the car consumes fuel at the rate of 2.1 mpg. Under normal usage the car does around 10 mpg.


The veyron features a 16 cylinder 8 litre engine! Which may be thought of two V8 engines merged together in the form of W, thats one the reasons its called a 16W engine. The car has a total of 64 valves equalling 4 for each cylinder. The massive number of cylinders has to be driven by 4 camshafts. And thats not all that gives the car 1000+ horsepower, it also has 4 turbo chargers which make the immense horsepower possible!


According to Jeremy Clarkson, the host of Top Gear, if the McLaren F1 were allowed to reach 120 mph before the Bugatti started, the Bugatti would still be the first to reach 200 mph.

Sony PS3 (80 gb)

Well here we have it, it had been in the news and now it’s been officially confirmed, the high capacity ps3 we were looking for and had eyes on is finally out, but guess what in South Korea only! We thought that Japan or USA would be the first markets it hits but no Sony corporation have chosen South Korea.

But nothing to be ashamed of .. the 80 gigger is hitting European and USA’s markets pretty soon, just a couple of months :)

Hyundai Terracan

For starters .. let me start by introducing to you a very nice 4x4 i came across the other day!

The hyundai terracan


The jeep comes with three engine options, 2.5 litre turbo diesel(TCi), 2.9 litre intercooled tubo common rail diesel(CRDi), and a 3.5 litre petrol V6. Of all the engines, the 2.9 diesel is the most impressive to check out, it'll give you great mileage plus great power!

Interior and Exterior :
I happened to visit a hyundai dealer in Islamabad, Pakistan. If you are interested it is in I 10/3. After throughly going through the jeep i thought it was rather appealling. The jeep is a bold inciating step take by hyundai, with its awesome power, the exterior and interior also is promising, although some people might find it very unappealing but most people have appreciated the leap by hyundai.


The jeep comes with dual air bags in the front, and is equiped with ABS and EPD, both tailored to increase its efficiency in braking as the car can accomoted rather heavy stuff in its back. And lets not forget .. it is a 7 seater!

The jeep gives to very good response to when you push the pedal !And the 2.9 diesel version i drove gives you good handling, and good mileage infact 13 km per litre. It'll go on to do 60 miles in 12 secs and will go upto a top speed of 104 miles
The jeep comes with 5 speed manual transmission ... or 4 speed automatic version.. being the heavy car it is.. i prefer and recommend to you the automatic version!
