Slow Motion Tea from iPhone 6 | Life in Slow Motion

This is my first life in slow motion video, pouring tea in slow motion. I recorded the video with the new Apple iPhone 6 in slow motion video mode. It looked really really nice, way better than my expectation. And I will keep recording new slow motion videos.





Mercedes AMG GT is Unfortunately Cool


Mercedes AMG GT is unfortunately a cool car? Why? Mercedes engineers decided to offer more sportive driving characteristics and try to eliminate the negative impacts of heavy gearbox and engine whilst cornering. Thus, Mercedes AMG GT offers active engine and transmission mounts controlled by the software controlled. Instead of using plastic engine mounts that are static, Mercedes AMG GT can control its engine mounts like Porsche 911 Turbo and reduce the negative effects the engine and transmission. And these are the cool bits from the AMG GT.

However, the exterior design is not that tempting! AMG GT looks way way better than SLS AMG, however the rear-end resembles too much with Renault Laguna coupe and Mercedes S-Coupe. Also the roof is similar to Jaguar F-Type Coupe. Lastly, the front headlights are look-a-like of Mercedes A-Class. I can understand one or two minor resemblance with other cars regarding to design, however these resemblances are reduces the attractiveness and the uniqueness of the car. Ten years ago, Lexus was resembling with main stream cars, now Mercedes does the same. 

Glad to see that Mercedes realised that SLS AMG was not looking good and they removed the exterior and interior mistakes from the AMG GT. In terms of interior design of AMG GT, it is really good and way better than the SLS AMG. In terms of its competitors, it is better than the Ferrari! At least, Mercedes is not using Chrysler navigation.

Another big advantages of Mercedes AMG GT is the safety systems. AMG GT offers Collision Prevention Assist Plus, Adaptive Brake, Attention Assist and the tyre pressure monitoring system. Optional extras available include; Adaptive Highbeam Assist; PRE-SAFE system, Parktronic, Reversing camera, Lane Tracking package including Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot Assist, Blind Spot Assist and Traffic Sign Assist (included in COMAND Online)

Unfortunately, none of the competitors offer any pre-crash systems like Mercedes. 

But I still love Mercedes McLaren SLR!

The Last Bugatti Veyron | End of an Era


This is the last Bugatti Veyron available to purchase at HR Owen, Jack Barclay in London. End of an era! There will not be a brand new Veyron after this car is sold. Veyron became the world's most powerful production car when it was announced with 1001 HP and kept this momentum with the 1200 HP version. The last Veyron is the 1200 HP version, the most powerful production car available at the moment.
