As a thread with many pictures can take a while to download, I introduce a compliment to the popular Power and Beauty Gallery.

* Power and Beauty - The Gallery Vol. II!

As always, the gallery is open to all clear, fabulous photography featuring any make, model, or vintage of car, portraying dynamic Power and/or Beauty.

For the sake of load times, please limit any submitted images to 6 per post, Thanks. Enjoy :P ! -- LateNightCable

Hi everyone, I'm the one who ruined the first "Power and Beauty" gallery - I'll try not to do the same with this one. But I think the "6 images per post" rule is a bit too harsh, don't you think, LateNight?

Don't worry, you didn't ruin it. I don't know, 6 pics per post seems about right, I only have 5 above. The system seems to judge the length of the pages by the number of posts, so theoretically, you could post 200 pictures on one post, and it would technically only be the first post of the page, and it would take forever to download. This way it keeps the length of the pages in check.

You guys are gettin' him all excited. Stop, you'll give him a heart attack.

Of course I must admit that I myself am drooling like a baby over that blue Aston Martin. The Jag. XK's are pretty sweet-lookin' too. But what's with the TVR in the middle of all that?!?!? Well, I guess it's a Brit., and a pretty good one at that, so, OK.

Here's a fine Brit. I'm absolutely in love with:

I didn't know that Invicta was British. For some reason I thought it was Italian. News to me, I guess.

invictas are amazing. My only regret is a lack of tuner parts for british cars.

I'd trade the boxster and X type in and get an XKR if i could get the parts to tune it faster and tighter.

izzyloveslizzy
Geschrieben

Yeah absolutely. Took the words right out of my mouth. And I also have complaints about the Invicta's slightly weak engine (320HP is very good, but not *insane*). Also, I think if you crash an Invicta S1, the repair will cost as much as a new car. That unibody contruction is awesome, and has it's advantages. But if it gets damaged beyond repair, they'll have to replace the entire body of the car, and that carbon-fibre monocoque isn't too cheap to build or to replace, by the looks of it.

I like those intercoolers. Very original.

LateNightCable
Geschrieben

Yeah, those are cool. But I don't think those are intercoolers, seeing as neither car is turbo-charged. The black RC Spade is powered by a 2.0 petrol 4-cylinder making 180 hp. And the red RC Diamond has a 2.2 Diesel with 175 hp. and twice the torque as the Spade.

Both cars weigh in at about 2,000 lbs., hit 60 in around 6 seconds, and top out at over 140 mph. It would be great if Peugeot took these cars to market!

The BMW Art Cars are a great addition to the Power and Beauty Gallery. A series of BMW cars painted by famous artists. These are only a few.

Long live Power and Beauty :P !

man, talk about expensive, an M1 painted by Warhol. Scary looking (thought the most attractive to me at least). Man oh man.

kleinefisch

Yeah, I'd love to get an original M1 or an original Warhol, but both in one would be amazing. I wonder that car is now.

The BMW Art Cars, of which there are 15 in all, created by significant artists representing nine countries from every continent, are basically a bunch of gypsies.

They have been displayed at museums throughout the world. From the Guggenheim in New York, to the Louvre in Paris. The last I heard of their whereabouts, including the Warhol M1, they were at the Rolex Vintage Festival over Labor Day weekend 2003, in Lakeville Conneticut.
