Jay-Z to Sponsor Bentley?

With Maybach out the window, Bentley are now offering multimillionaire Jay-Z an endorsement deal. Daimler said in November it planned to end production of Maybach’s, which start at £380,000, despite an unusual kind of endorsement from Jay-Z, who owns one of the cars and destroyed another with a blowtorch and saw in a music video released four months earlier. One of the world's most potent wealth symbols, the condemned brand also counts Russian oil billionaire Roman Abramovich and the Sultan of Brunei among its following.

The Bentley boss has already heard from some Maybach clients and is "in the process" of writing to others, he said. The comments I'm receiving aren't very positive - they feel left alone." Under Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche, Daimler is focusing on the core Mercedes brand's top-flight S-Class, adding pricier variants designed to inherit and enlarge Maybach's super-rich client base, starting next year.

But Bentley and BMW AG's Rolls-Royce Motor Cars are hoping owners of the prestige badge will instead defect to their plushest models, the Mulsanne and Phantom. Analysts like their chances with Maybach clients. The Maybach brand has came to an end will Jay-Z take this opportunity to sponsor the Bentley?

Pauley Perrette Naked Limo Drive

The CBS news anchor was on duty for ET at the 2012 people choice awards on Wednesday night and things got a little risky when Pauley decided that she would have a ride in her limousine naked. She changed clothes in the limousine on the way to the awards several times as she couldn’t decide which outfit to put on to make matters worse she couldn’t even use a mirror.

She then lent over and said to the driver no offense but I am about to get naked in the limo. She finally got to the awards and really enjoyed her night despite the mishap in the night. No doubt the limousine driver didn’t know where to put himself but everything sorted itself out and she finally arrived in style to the awards.

She is now up for a bunch of awards herself for other projects she has played in and she will find the results of the events later on this month.

Nissan GTR Nearly Beats Bugatti Veyron

The Nissan nearly beat the Bugatti Veyron in a drag race but when we say nearly we literally mean nearly the Nissan was only able to nearly compete with the Bugatti due to the Bugatti having a bad start and not being able to kick-start the management control on the vehicle once he worked out how to do this the Bugatti steamed ahead and reached 139mph in the 10.1 seconds and simply hammered the Nissan. The Nissan driver said he couldn’t believe what was happening when he looked in his mirror to see the Bugatti behind however it didn’t take long for the most expensive car in the world which is road legal to kick start and really push the throttle.

The Bugatti Veyron is one the fastest road legal cars on the planet and the race was set up as nobody had actually officially raced the two supercars the Nissan GTR which retails for around £85,000.The Bugatti is worth over £1million but car fanatics thought the Nissan might give the Bugatti a run for its money however they were wrong.

Last Maybach Ever To Be Built

The unsuccessful launch of the Maybach brand will finally end in 2013 and the last limousine and luxury car will be built this year in a farewell to the brand which tried to challenge the Rolls Royce era. The Maybach brand has not took off how Mercedes wanted it to pan out and now Mercedes are simply going to replace the Maybach with a Mercedes S Class just slightly larger.

The Maybach has sold over 300 units in its years which is nothing compared to Rolls Royce or higher designer cars such as Bentley or even Ferrari. Many people believe the Maybach looked to simple and never had an iconic car which stood out on the vehicle and believe this why it didn’t succeed. Many rappers bought the cars but apart from that the Maybach never really stood out.

It is believed the Maybach replacement car will be a 'Pullman' version of the Mercedes S-Class with a long wheelbase. There is also rumour that plan for an S-Class Cabriolet has been given the green light for a 2014 debut.
