Forgive us for being fixated with these photos. We can’t help it. We’re just having a hard time figuring out exactly what we love more: the Ferrari 458 Italia or that smoking hot vixen posing with the Italian supercar. We can call it even to spare us all the trouble of picking one over the other. But to be fair, we have to give due props to the people behind these awesome photos.
The shoot comes courtesy of Pro-Tect Film, a company that specializes in distribution, marketing, and installation of Avery Dennison Nano-Fusion Clear Urethane Film for the automotive aftermarket. In layman’s terms, these guys are the ones you call if you need to put additional clear coat protection for your car – luxury, super, or otherwise. The folks over at Pro-Tect Film possess an in-depth knowledge of clear urethane film and how these products can serve as a way to keep your beloved four-wheeled rides free from unnecessary kinks and dinks that only wear and tear can provide. So if you have a car that you’d want to have extra protection – in more ways than one – Pro-Tect Film will hook you up with one of the best kinds of clear coat protection the market has to offer.
Unfortunately, neither the 458 Italia nor the bikini-clad beauty will come with the purchase. Those two are simply eye candy, to which we say, “More, please?”
On the surface, a calendar shouldn’t be making this kind of attention. After all, there are about millions of these things that you can pick up for a dollar at just about any convenience store on the planet.
Pirelli’s annual calendar, however, is by no means just another calendar. Similar to Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue or Victoria Secret’s Lingerie Show, the Pirelli Calendar is an institution that counts some of the world’s most prominent and influential people as its fans. More than just telling you what the today’s date is, the Pirelli Calendar has become a sort of fashion icon in itself with some of the world’s most beautiful models – sometimes even celebrities make it there – gracing its pages.
This year, the high-end Italian tire maker has teamed up with a prominent name in the fashion industry, Karl Lagerfield. Together, the two parties touched on Greek and Roman mythology for inspiration, dressing up the models, including Holywood A-lister Juliane Moore, to portray some of the mythological Gods of the olden times.
The calendar is highlighted by Moore who, in her ethereal beauty, plays the part of Hera with young model Brad Kroenig playing the role of Zeus, among others.
At the end of the day, the 2011 Pirellli Calendar is still just another one of its kind. But make no mistake, if there’s one calendar in the world that oozes with art, class and social status, it’s this one.
There aren’t too many things we love more than fast cars and beautiful women. In fact, that might the top of TopSpeed’s favorite things in the world list. Helping fulfill our lusty love is the magazine 944 and model Marisa Miller.
The magazine dressed up Miller is various outfits and wigs and placed her in front of a Ford Thunderbird , a Ford Mustang and a Porsche 356 . We’re not sure why they chose the vehicles they did, but who’s going to be looking at them anyway.
Miller has worked with companies such as Harley-Davidson and Sport Illustrated. In 2008, she helped launch the new VRSCF V-Rod Muscle motorcycle and she continues to work with that great American company.
On top of posing for photographs and helping launch new bikes, Miller has worked on a few sitcoms, including How I Met Your Mother and Gary Unmarried. She is currently developing her own shoot focused on the military.

Gentlemen, prepare yourself, and your hearts! We present to you the 2011 Tuning Calendar with 27 year-old Kristin Zippel as the highlight! Her name may not mean much to some people, but after taking a look at the 13 images featuring the bikini-clad Zippel stereotypically washing some hot cars, her name may be forever stitched in your hearts!
For those of you who haven’t just skipped to the pictures, here’s some additional information on the model. Kristin Zippel had the honor of appearing in the 2011 calendar after winning the contest in May at the World Bodensee Tuning event in Friedrichshafen, Germany. It was then that she became Miss Tuning 2010 and went off to the Great Lakes region of North America to be photographed by Max Steam around a series of iconic American cars.
If you’re still reading, then we are thoroughly impressed. There will only be 1,500 units sold at a price of €25 (or just $35 at the current exchange rates) so anyone interested better hop on board quick! Okay, seriously now, check out those pics!
Why do we go to France? The Eiffel Tower, the great food and wine, the wonderful romantic skyline, and the fantastic are galleries are all good reasons, but let’s face it, there’s nothing like gorgeous French women to put a smile on our faces.
At this year’s Paris Motor Show , we had plenty of vehicles to look at and they were all just lovely in their own way. While we had to look at the vehicle because, that’s our job, it was hard not to sneak a glance at the models who were presenting the vehicles. We can be pretty sure they could care less about the cars they were in, but, oh my, did they look good.
The good people at Auto123 had their photographers on hand to capture the beautiful women from the motor show, and feel free to tell us your favorite in the comment section below. Of course, if you have your own personal favorite that wasn’t listed, feel free to share it with us as well.
The recently concluded Moscow International Motor Show was eventful for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was the highly touted debut of Jaguar’s B7 ballistics-protected XJ Sentinel . And while most of us were thrilled to finally see the armored XJ break cover, the Moscow International Motor Show captured our attentions more than the plethora of vehicles that were exhibited during the multi-day event.
And just like any self-respecting man would tell you, unveiling a new car at an event as grandiose as the Moscow International Motor Show wouldn’t be as complete and as thrilling without the presence of some ridiculously gorgeous girls by its side, flaunting the car’s features and their own, much to our collective delight.
So, this album is a tribute to all the foxy ladies of the Moscow International Motor Show. The very same ladies whose presence made the event all the more exciting!
The world’s greatest aftermarket car show would not be complete without a wide variety of scantily clad women walking around the exhibition halls posing for photos and promoting their patron’s product. These car show girls fill in the voids between the automotive works of art, keeping attendees eyes moving from one item to the next and act like magnets attracting hoards of slack jawed males to their respective booths, like sirens marooning ships full of men. People then wait in endless lines for a little more than a wink and an oversized poster complete with the signature of a women they have most likely never heard of, but it is well worth it because she is so hot. So in addition to featuring everything from high end American hot rods to some of the nicest import tuner cars in the world, the 2009 SEMA show is also chock full of females.
Fewer things go together as nicely as hot girls and high performance sports cars. We have to admit that there’s not much to say here, we will just let the photos do the talking! The only comment necessary is that both the girl and the car, a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 are two items that we would love to have in the Top Speed garage!
Just because it’s the English automaker ’s 50th birthday and because we like to point out our friends we decided to bring you this very interesting look on a different kind of racing school. Fellow Southern Automotive Media Association Member and professional racecar driver Bill Adam was on hand to teach a group of the Card and Driver editorial staff’s in-laws in a group of Mini Clubman Sports . Now teaching a group of grannies about the finer points of turning in and hitting the apex is a challenge in and of itself. This is especially true when you consider that the pupils come from a group that is better known for causing traffic than avoiding it. But the elderly women did surprisingly well, and at the same time gained a little bit of appreciation for what their son-in-laws do for a living. Thanks to the trio of talented instructors, they went from a group of nervous Nancys to real racing pros, by the end of the day they were even popping bottles like Rubens did this past Sunday at the European Grand Prix.
