Imagine the scenario: The sun is shining somewhere exotic, and you have keys to a Ferrari or perhaps a GT-R and Carrera GT to choose from.
The cars are already on the building’s roof with the models. Time to put on that multi-pocket camera vest, and get to work on this dream job.
The cars sit near the heli pad and have never looked hotter. The babe in the passenger seat is not half bad either.
Talented photographers really get all the perks sometimes. They not only get to spend hours with some of the most beautiful women in the world, but they collaborate closely and have these model’s undivided attention as everyone on set tries to make great art.
Of course, a wardrobe change or five is part of every photo shoot. But some guys really do have it all behind the Nikon lens. Not just supermodels, but supercars too.
The bi-annual Frankfurt Auto Show is easily the most important in the world, battling with Geneva and Detroit for the most important reveals. A gentleman’s agreement sees Frankfurt and Paris alternate every other year, so each can hog the limelight and be the year’s prime spectacle — larger than any other traveling circus in history.
The reason it is so critical is that it is able to draw a huge number of the world’s best automakers, suppliers, tech partners and executives in one place. Even as shows in Asia and lifestyle/hybrid launches in Los Angeles gain momentum, typically nothing compares with Frankfurt in terms of volume of new models, debuts and concepts .
For competitive insights and also a great look at the current agenda of the global auto industry, there is no better place than Germany in mid-September. Its overlap with Oktoberfest — in September, despite its name — allows the best time to soak up the local culture of beer gardens, honeybees, pretzels and roaring Deutsch laughter.
Feet will ache from hours wandering circles in this massive expo center. Despite being mostly an open floor plan, the importance of the show means the manufacturer stands are two and three-story buildings assembled inside. By conservative estimates, this two-week event will cost a major player like BMW Group over $35 million in planning, design, signage, stages, turn-tables, media displays, etc. once the crowds have left.
This makes walking around seem like visiting a very crowded future IKEA, but instead of desk lamps, Frankfurt is all about concept cars, booth babes and Porsche posters. This giant automotive candy store is massive, though, so wear your most comfortable walking shoes and get ready for some warm beers! The show runs from September 12th through the 22nd for the general public and the press days run from September 10th through 11th.
Come join the fun after the jump for the full Frankfurt 2013 Auto Show preview, with a full list of manufacturers on display and the special concepts they will reveal.
Jaguar is getting serious about revamping its image. As with all luxury and premium brands, the desire to be young, cool and sexy is a very powerful draw. Audi has used a similar approach very successfully over the last decade, to now being a global luxury powerhouse with more brand appeal in some sectors than BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
Launching a successful luxury expansion takes bold vision, charisma and - most importantly - the right cars to match the brand’s potential. While Audi took a colder and more tech-driven brand identity, Jaguar is going to emotional route to branding itself a sports car specialist.
Jaguar is taking itself into a new arena with some very racy marketing launches for the F-type around the world, including a steamy Playboy collaboration.
Embracing social media, video formats, glamour photography, fashion spreads, everything: the F-type launch is so horny that you can almost smell the perfume wafting out its vents in the Jaguar ’s official videos.
One of these sexually-charged videos stands above the rest, due to its slinky song lyrics, silk sheets and wind machines at a low fan setting. We get to watch Playboy’s 2013 Playmate of the Year, Raquel Pomplun, as her beauty team adds red Chanel lipstick to match her new 2014 F-type roadster.
She then lounges tauntingly in front of her new Jag, given to her as part of the prize for her incredible ... modeling.
She has the bad-girl pout of Lana Del Rey, and the song is just as moody and sinful as her red dresses. Click past the jump to enjoy 90 seconds of passion with 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Raquel Pomplun and her new Jaguar F-type .
Bullrun 2013 is getting closer and today it’s time to see a first trailer that will offer us a glimpse of the great things set to start on June 1st, 2013. Of course, the video does not reveal too much, but the organizers have promised that "this year’s 10th Anniversary rally will be one for the history books."
The 2013 Bullrun will run down America’s East Coast from Canada’s historic city of Montreal all the way to New Orleans. The event will begin on May 31st with a spectacular launch party and will followed the next morning (exact start time TBA) with another memorable start line location - a location that is very secretive. Though we know that it will start in Montreal and end in New Orleans, the destinations in-between remain a tightly guarded secret.
The rally takes place from June 1st through June 7th and has been promised to be the most glamorous rally of 2013!
When it comes to a major show, we like watching all those great supercars that are displayed. However, the beauty of a car, like the new LaFerrari, is further accentuated by a beautiful girl placed next to it.
So, especially for you guys, we have prepared this picture gallery with the hottest girls we saw in Geneva: from blondes to brunettes to redheads, and every category of hot chick found on the show floor. All you have to do is just pick your favorite. The problem is that, unlike the cars, no girl was for sale so all you can to do is admire!
Keep in mind, folks, these images aren’t really the best to look at while the wife, boss or young kids are around, so make sure you are all alone before you start drooling.

Usually what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! But luckily for you guys, not this time. Jesse Preston had a very interesting meeting with the Ferrari 458 Italia .
Yes, we are sure you really do not know who Jesse Preston is. Now, that your girlfriend or wife is not around, you can admit it; you have the entire Playboy collection hidden somewhere in your room and you know Jesse Preston quite well. Today you get know her even better…
She was invited by the folks over Exotics Racing take a leisurely spin in a Ferrari 458 Italia . By “leisurely spin” we, of course, mean drifting at break-neck speeds. Apparently she was quite impressed, or maybe scared nearly to death, by the way a 458 Italia drifts in the twist.
And no Jesse, that is not the way to wear a seat-belt. Well, it’s not the correct way to wear one if you expect it to keep you safe, at least. Its positioning is rather, um, "strategic" to say the least. Watch the video to see what we are talking about.
In case you’re wondering whether clicking this video is a right idea, we’ll spare you the decision and tell you that this video is NSFW. Having said that, though, we don’t need to remind you that this video is something every warm-blooded man in this planet should watch.
Ford Mustang aftermarket specialist AmericanMuscle will be selling its Mustang-themed 2013 calendar soon - it’s actually available for order now at the company’s website for just $19.99 - but what really caught our attention, as far as this video goes, is the amount of garments, or lack thereof, the models in this video are wearing.
No, they’re not completely nude, but with little in the way of fabric, they might as well just be, hence the NSFW disclaimer
It’s a pretty ingenious way for AmericanMuscle to promote its 2013 calendar because if for nothing else, little captures a man’s attention better than scantily-clad beauties doing the car wash routine on an iconic American muscle car.
Ever drove into one of those car washes and a portly, middle-aged man proceeded to give your car the soap and water treatment? Doesn’t do much in the way of your imagination, does it?
Well, what if we told you that you can replace Larry the Cable Guy with two gorgeous models identified as Veronica Popa and Bryana Holly?
See, now we have your undivided attention. Featuring a Ferrari 430 Scuderia and a Bentley Continental GT , together with Popa and Holly, the photo spread shows the two beautiful babes cleaning, posing, and downright flirting with the two exotics.
You can never get tired of somebody who does his job better than most people. In this particular case, Nino Batista has made a habit of creating photo-shoots that highlight his skills as a photographer, but also puts his subjects in an impressive light.
This photo-shoot features such subjects as the Lamborghini Murcielago and sexy hottie Kasie Wyland. The exotic Murcielago is actually owned by a customer who had his exotic customized by Autodynamica Performance.
The combination of the tall and long-legged brunette with yellow Italian supercar is something that’s just too good to pass up. To his credit, Batista managed to even make the ratio of hotness between the girl and the supercar balance out in the photos.
Some cases, you can’t take your eyes off of the car. Other cases, it’s the girl. In this instance, you can’t take your eyes off of both. That’s a credit to the man taking the pictures.
We don’t want to beat up on an old horse and say Nino Batista’s skills behind a camera lens are top notch, but when you’re speaking the truth, there aren’t enough times to emphasize that.
These exotic vehicles speak for themselves, but this Amanda Beatz babe really is something else. No need to hide behind that towel, sweetheart. Matter of fact, it’s probably better if you just throw it away. We like your body...actually, we love your body so much we wish we could just stare at it for hours on end.
Which is something we’ll probably do over the next few days.
