I expect the company to pay it as quickly as possible.” Tags: NULL whatsapp KCS-content whatsapplast_img read more

10 of the World’s Most Expensive Cars

first_imgPrices range from $750,000 to $2.1 million! #3 Pagani Cinque RoadsterThe final Pagani manufactured vehicle and the last one under 2 million dollars is the Cinque Roadster. Similar to its Coupe cousin, the vehicle is priced at $1,882,920. The car has the same standard engine, but otherwise is very different with a removable roof that can be stored in the front trunk. It also has five different drive modes and an adjustable suspension that make the car specialized for both the track and the road.#2 Bugatti Veyron Grand SportThe Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is a more luxurious version of the standard Veyron and is priced just over 2 million at $2,027,760. It is one of the top 3 fastest cars coming in at a top speed of 254 mph with an 8-liter, 16-cylinder with a 7 gear, twin-clutch gearbox transmission. The grand sport reserves around 700 horsepower for a quick burst of speed when needed while the cruise control helps maintain a consistent high speed. Like the standard Veyron, the car stops fast, coming to a full stop in just 32 meters with the help of its rear spoiler.#1 Koenigsegg CCXRThe rarely seen and heard Koenigsess CCXR is not only one of the fastest vehicles on the market, but also is the most expensive at $2,173,950. Like the Bugatti cars, the CCXR has just over 1000 horsepower coming from a 4.7 L aluminum v8 engine. It also has many of the most desirable accessories in vehicles with a standard storable hardtop glass roof, rear wing, carbon ceramic brakes, hydraulic lifting system, navigation, rear view cameras, DVD, CD, iPod, satellite radio, climate control, leather carpers, car cover, and a tire monitoring system. Other things like leather interior and color options are available to buyers, but you need to know someone in order to get one of these as production plans went from six cars to four. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate TAGSExpensive Cars Previous articleBe careful what you pray for…Next articleOn this day: Martin Luther King Jr. born Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! The Anatomy of Fear When most people think of expensive cars, they may think about Porsche, Lamborghini, or Lotus, but many of the most expensive cars are made by lesser known manufacturers such as Maybach, Pagani, Bugatti, and several others. Part of the recognition of the manufacturers that people do know about comes from their solidified place in music such as the “lambo” and the Bugatti. The rest of the manufacturers are just a little harder to fit into a rhyme or even a rhythm. Here are the most expensive cars.#10 SSC Ultimate AeroThe SSC Ultimate Aero isn’t known as much for its luxury as it is known for its speed. The twin-turbocharged SSC billet aluminum block V8 engine puts out nearly 1300 horsepower with a top speed of 270 mph and reaches 0-60 in a very impressive 2.7 seconds. The car is even more unique as the Guinness titled world’s fastest car and has only 50 models from 2007 to 2010. It is priced at $740,000 base price with an optional addition of carbon ceramic brakes for another $31,200.#9 Leblanc MirabeauThe Leblanc Mirabeau comes in at a whopping $861,798 with an optional $76,000 semi-automatic shifting option. Slightly slower than the Aero, it comes with a 4.7 liter V8 supercharged engine that puts out 700 horsepower and a top speed of 230 mph. It also reaches 0-60 in 2.7 seconds. What makes this car particularly unique is that the car is actually street legal as most cars of the same caliber are track only. However, the interior is rather sparse.#8 Pagani Zonda F CoupeThe first car to break a million dollars and the cheapest of four Pagani manufactured cars on the top ten list, the Pagani Zonda F Coupe is priced at $1,375,980. All of the Pagani cars come with a standard Mercedes Benz AMG v12 engine; this one is paired with a mechanical 6-speed transmission and twin plate clutch that puts out over 600 horsepower and reaches 0-60 in 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 230 mph. The body of the car is largely constructed with carbon fibre parts for extra safety. Now sold out, it originally was dedicated to Formula One driver Juan Manuel Fangio by Pagani.#7 Maybach LandauletAt the slightly more expensive $1,380,000, the Maybach Landaulet once again is based off of luxury rather than speed. The key features of the vehicles include a roof that fully opens at the rear while the chauffeur’s compartment remains enclosed. The process of opening and closing the roof takes 16 seconds with individual armchairs enclosed in white leather. It also has a partition screen that is clear glass with curtains, reclining rear seats with footrests, and a Dunhill umbrella.#6 Pagani Zonda F RoadsterAlso from the Pagani Zonda line is their F Roadster. The car which nearly mimics the coupe comes with the same engine, transmission, and similar speeds. Priced at $1,448,000, it is also largely of carbon fibre and titanium. There are only 25 roadster models available.#5 Lamborghini ReventonThe only Lamborghini to make the list, the Reventon is priced at $1,454,500. It also is one of the faster cars on the list coming in at a maximum speed of 211 mph. Inspired by the f-22 Raptor fighter jet and named after one of history’s most famous fighting bulls, the body of the vehicle is encased in carbon fibre and combined with luxury accessories inside and out. The model of the vehicle was introduced in 2007 with just 20 of them made.#4 Pagani Zonda Cinue Coupe & Bugatti VeyronPagani and Bugatti tie for the position. From Pagani, the more recent Zonda Cinque Coupe only sold five in 2009 before being sold out and is priced at $1,738,080. With the standard Mercedes-Benz engine, the Cinque borrows from their track supercar leaving the roll cage out and bringing in the upholstered interior. On the other hand, the Bugatti Veyron, also priced for $1,738,080 is likely the second fastest car in the world with a 16-cylinder engine that puts out over 1000 horsepower and a top speed of 255 mph. The 4-wheel drive car has three driving modes to conserve power even when driving at the highest speeds. The really unique thing about the Bugatti vehicle is that the car actually stops faster than it accelerates—2.3 seconds to go from 60-0 mph versus the 2.5 seconds going from 0-60 mph. Part of the expensive cost comes from the expensive materials the car is made from like titanium, carbon, magnesium, and aluminum.

Condominio P / C+C04STUDIO

first_img 2009 Projects “COPY” “Condominio P” is a residential building located in Cagliari. The complex lies in an area affected by profound changes in urban planning and architecture, not all positive. While the building fabric of the neighborhood – characterized by small low buildings developed in the 30s and 50s – has been transformed in the nineties by operations that have produced new replacement buildings of modest architectural quality, future projects seem to reverse a negative trend once ugly and anonymous.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviRecommended ProductsTiles / Mosaic / GresiteApavisaTiles – Iconic BrownPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BrickworkPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles – 20MMClose to the site, to the south, the recent demolition of a disused concrete factory has released an area in which a new residential area with ample space and new facilities for the tertiary sector has been implemented. The intervention of the new “condominium P” is taking its first steps in the direction of seeking a synthesis between architectural rigor and desire for a certain distance from anonymousness and grayness.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviThe project research either the unity of the building as a whole and the uniqueness of individual homes, fostering a collective understanding of the building as a system consisting of individual and recognizable “cells”.Save this picture!plan 00The building is configured as the addition of “container-house” superimposed, differentiated and visible. The use of color becomes an instrument “anti-dullness,” and at the same time a means to identify the different containers-house recognizable even with the introduction of large numbers engraved on the coating of colored melamine laminate. Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviThe available choice of “container-house” between the floors is non-repetitive. For this reason there is no “type floor” and each apartment is unique. This architectural concept is visible in the facade by the use of color and by integrating the empty terrace. These elements of “diversion volume” separate the container-house and build relationships of exchange between interior space and outer space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Water Cube / MVRDVArticlesContemplating the void: JDSArticlesProject locationAddress:Via Posada, 09122 Cagliari, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

VanOmmeren-architecten won the tender for the redevelopment of the Vijverkerk plot (Bloemendaal, NL) commissioned by Wibaut. A design for a three-story dwelling building was proposed. In close collaboration with the neighborhood and the client, integrated design for 8 luxury apartments is made. The relationship between inside and outside of the dwelling is directly inspired by the typology of villas in the neighborhood. These houses are typically accessed from the side of the building, while parking is behind. Therefore the street façade is representative, free of parking while remaining a green character. The ground floor dwellings offer a garden. Dwellings on the first floor accommodate a loggia, and the top floor dwellings offer a roof terrace. This composition diminishes volume when gaining height, while opening up space for urban green.Save this picture!© Eva Bloemlocal villa’s as inspirationThe organization of the building refers the characteristics of local villa architecture. As a reaction to the green context, the villa’s are gained access form the side, so a representative facade faces the front garden and the street. Parking is done at the side or back of the plot. This principle is used in the organization of the apartments. The result is a design in which living rooms face sun, green and street.Save this picture!© Eva BloemvolumeApartments on the ground floor have a garden, on the first floor a loggia and the top layers have terraces. The volume decreases as it gets higher to give space to the surrounding green. This is of great value for both the perception of space from inside as the perception of the building in its context.Save this picture!© Eva BloemSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Eva BloemcompositionThe architecture is the result of the reference to the local villa architecture, the zoning within the floor plan and the way the volume reacts to its surroundings. The light brick facade has a symbiotic relationship with the natural context, it emphasizes the facade openings and terraces. The classic three-layered composition and the hierarchy of the volume is captured in a rigid masonry grid. “COPY” Mark van der Heide Urban Designlast_img read more

Christmas cards designed by children to raise funds

Schools are invited to participate by getting their pupils to draw or paint a Christmas scene on A4 paper. These are then sent off to the printers to be professionally scanned and printed before despatch to the school or parents. There is no competition so all children get to see their cards printed once their parents have decided to purchase the cards. Parents at several schools are already excited at the opportunity of having professional produced cards drawn by their children. One parent, Steve Blake, said “This project gives children a sense of achievement at having produced their own cards and is an opportunity for their creative abilities to be stretched. The quality of the sample card is excellent and we are looking forward to being different and sending out our children’s cards this Christmas.” Advertisementcenter_img Every pack raises £1.00 for the school and parents can sell the concept on to local businesses and organisations to raise additional funds. The creative design and copyright of the idea came from Michael Sebaduka, the print operations director of DPI Digital. Michael said “We are delighted to be involved in this programme which helps schools raise funds for much needed projects”. Kids Cards is supported by Access Underwriting®, leading charity insurance brokers, as part of their corporate community involvement programme.

Quebec protest rejects gov’t austerity

first_imgThousands in protests in Montreal and Quebec City, Nov. 29, 2014.Around a thousand people protested the Quebec government’s austerity program in front of the National Assembly in Quebec City on Feb. 12, the day the parliament opened its 2015 session.The coalition, “Let’s Refuse Austerity,” is also planning major, provincewide but region-based protests on International Women’s Day, Earth Day and May 1.Back in November, the coalition had organized major protests involving tens of thousands of people in Montreal and other Quebec cities. And on Feb. 6, when Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard went to Abitibi-Témiscamingue, a small city in the western part of the province, over 200 protesters showed up in snowy, harsh cold to say that he shouldn’t cut jobs, health and other social services and education.Some 500 militants from the Federation of Health and Social Services, a component of the Confederation of National Unions (CSN), occupied the offices of 16 members of the National Assembly during the week leading up to the Feb. 12 conference and protest. [“National” in these names refers to Quebec, not to Canada.]The National Assembly is considering a law, PL10, that would drastically cut health care services. For example, the Côte-nord — the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, between Saguenay Fjord and Labrador, the second-largest region of Quebec — would be reduced to just one health center for 146,000 square miles.

Rather than austerity, it should look to increase revenue.He said, “The richest of our society should pay more taxes, businesses should pay more taxes.
