The Art Of Supercars

Mate of mine is a member of Damon Hill's rent-a-supercar club: P1. He has kindly got me a ticket to the dinner described below tomorrow - I'll be taking my camera and posting up some up'close'an'personal shots of the cars on offer. Should be a blast and I'm v. excited - just thought I'd share...

"P1 is very pleased to announce participation in a unique four-day supercar event this July, and would like to draw your attention to a very appropriately themed dinner on the first evening…

Salon Privé is the unique luxury and supercar show making its debut this year in the spectacular grounds of The Hurlingham Club. The event features a garden party in the grounds by day with events in the club itself each evening. Cars on show will include amongst others the Bugatti Veyron, Koenigsegg’s CCX, Spyker C8 and two cars P1 members can look forward to driving later this year - Bentley's convertible GTC and the Ferrari 599 GTB.

Looking at the programme for the event, we felt that the black-tie dinner on the evening of Thursday 11th July entitled ‘The Art of Supercars’ would be of particular interest to P1 members. Hosted by Top Gear’s James May with tables set amongst the supercars on display, the dinner will be rounded off by guest speaker Peter Stevens - designer of the McLaren F1, a performance by opera divas Elysium and a nightclub until 1:00am."

If anyone wants close up shots of any aspect of the the above cars (for whatever reason) let me know before tomorrow eve and I'll do my best.

Jaegermeister, that's just for winners, as SteveAudioX will testify!

Supercars are ace, wish I could afford one, for now I just have to make do with my mates cars, nice 997 turbo, and the other week he walked into the local Ferrario dealer in his scruffs and ordered two 430's - don't think they say that one coming!

Kind of makes you feel silly when we're just playing with cars that these things are coming out of the factory with crazy pwer levesl - there aren't many cars in the club that could compete with these, maybe Mat and Rob Jonk, not sure of many other cars that are pushing out the power levels needed now that Dangerous Brain got rid of his Aristo again!

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
