aston-martin-db5-smThe Aston Martin is often to be said one of the most famous car in the world. This car, among many of James Bond’s car is the most known car in the James Bond Films.  The DB5 first Debuted in Goldfinger and again in Thunderball. Some other movies that this DB5 was featured in is Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale and GoldenEye. It hard to believe now, in 1968 one of the employee of the film ordered  this original car with the same Registration, had all the gadgets removed then sold it. Luckily the person that bought the car put all the gadgets back in again.

Lotus Esprit 51

Somehow got a Lotus to park right in front so Cubby leaving the studio can get a glimpse of it. And the PR person knew that one look at this car, there was no way Cubby would have passed it up with out wanting the car in the Bond Films.

An engine double of this car was made for certain scene so Cubby’s real car didn’t get damaged during filming.  The Silver Cloud has been replaced by Silver Shadow and powered a Six point Two Litter V8. Many says that these models are the last of its kind.

 

 

 

 

History and Background of the Lambo

1965-lamborghini-350-gtHistory and Background of the Lambo goes back to the year 1963 when Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder and creator of the Lamborghini car company, wanted build a factory of luxury cars that would later become a rival to Ferrari. Mr. Lamborghini did what he could to make his dream project come to life. Even during World War II, he had tons of energy and more than enough determination to start a tractor factory, which lead him to become very wealthy by his fiftieth birthday. Due to the nature of Ferrucio being a wealthy man from start, it was easy for him to get his second project, the Lamborghini car company, started without any hesitations or disruptions.

By the age of sixty, Lamborghini was a very powerful man who knew what he wanted. However, when he stated he wanted to create a super sports car to compete with Ferrari everyone thought he was losing his mind. This did not stop him; in fact, by May 1963 he had founded Automobili Furruccio Lamborghini, used the experience he gained from other companies and hired others to help with building a v12 engine as well as other parts of the car. Since time was considerably short the team had to work hard until the first was, 350GTV, was presented which was already known as a masterpiece.By 1964, the 350 GT was born and later the 400 GT the main difference was it was built with a larger engine containing four-litre as well as the first gearbox, which was designed and created in-house by Lamborghini. When the 400 Gt became ready for public purchase, 273 units sold. A year later, the coupes from Sant’Agata were introduced and increasing in popularity fast. Genuinely, Lamborghini and his team presented a large number of new models between October 1965 and Jun 1966. During 1973While Lamborghini continued to grow rapidly over the first 10 years of production, the company’s profits were hit hard very suddenly as a result to the 1973 worldwide finical downturn and the oil crisis. After investing long, hard years making his project become reality, in 1974 Mr. Lamborghini decided to sell his company to Georges-Henri Rossetti and Rene Leimer.

As you may or may not know, Lamborghini decided to expand their horizons by creating a line of merchandise that become available for purchase through many on and offline department stores. Some of the branded merchandise includes 1526057027_1397789757clothing, goods, accessories, shoes and even electronics.

For the 2014 Lamborghini models, there are currently two model lines with both containing mid-engine two seated sports cars. While there may be a distinct difference between the engines and bodies, both cars are as considered top-of-the-line luxury sport cars of 2014. In most consumers and car experts’ opinions, it’s impossible for any car company to shut Lamborghini in the dark!

Some Car History For You

gallery_1Toyota, known officially as the Toyota Motor Corporation, is a Japanese car manufacturer based out of Toyota, Aichi. Toyota began it’s journey as a section arm of the Toyota Auto Loom Works. The first vehicles which the Loom Works produced were the A1, a proto-type passenger car and the G1, a load carrying work truck.

The Toyota Motor Company was created as a completely different company in the 1930′s and by 2008 the sales of the Toyota Motor Company had far surpassed even Ford’s high sales. This breakthrough made it the number one selling car company in the world.

Ford, also known officially as the Ford Motor Company, started out as the Henry Ford Company on the 3rd of November, 1901. The Henry Ford Company then transitioned to the Cadillac Motor Company when Ford left the company, when he did so he withdrew the rights to his name and so it had to be changed. He then created the Ford Motor Company, the name which the corporation still bears to this day, in a old factory which was converted for the purpose of manufacturing automobiles. 

John and Horace Dodge were substantial investors in this 1903 factory conversion and company restructuring; they would later go on to create the Dodge Brothers Company which would later become the modern day car manufacturer known simply as Dodge.

The proper Ford Motor Company started making cars all by hand with only a handful of workers whom were using parts exclusively obtained from parts manufacturers contracting directly with Ford himself. In less than a decade, however, the company would be the first to lead the world in it’s refinement of the assembly line with regards to it’s use in large scale industrial manufacturing.

The Ford Motor Company was one of the few car manufacturers to survive the economic cesspool of the Great Depression. Another thing that separates Ford from many other car companies is that they are, even to this day, a completely family owned corporation. For over one hundred years the company has been perpetually family owned.

Ford introduced the world’s first moving assembly line in 1913, in 1908 they set forth the historically famous model T, the first engine to have a removable cylinder head. IN 1957 the company produced child safety locks on all their automobiles. The popular and oft culturally referenced Ford Mustang was introduced into production in 1964.

William Clay Ford, ancestor of Henry Ford, is the current executive chairman of the Ford Motor Company Board.
