The Sports Car Which Never Needs Petrol - Tesla Roadster

The 2011 Tesla Roadster Sport never needs petrol. Never visit a service station again! It's an electric sports car and it goes from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds!
It goes on sale in Australia this week but it will cost over $200,000 to own one. It can be recharged for as little as $12 with a range of 400 kilometres and a top speed of 212 km/h.
You only need to service this car once a year and the service technician comes to you.
Who is going to buy one? It looks lovely in the video below:

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the World's Largest Theme Park

The world's largest indoor amusement park has just opened.  Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi features the world's fastest roller-coaster - Formula Rossa.
The iconic roof of Ferrari World is modelled after the side profile of a Ferrari GT. The roof has a total surface area of 200,000 square metres (2,200,000 sq ft) with a perimeter of 2,200 metres (7,200 ft). The theme park, measuring 86,000 square metres (930,000 sq ft), is located under this 50 metres (160 ft) high roof. The centre of the roof is marked by a 100-metre (330 ft) glazed funnel.
There are many rides and certainly, other than the Formula Rossa, lots of reasons to visit Abu Dhabi and enjoy the experience.  Here is a great video of the roller-coaster experience.

Maserati GranCabrio - Beautiful, Elegant and Versatile

I love this car.  It is gorgeous, stylish and elegant.  The new Maserati GranCabrio is an original take on the driving pleasure, exclusivity and versatility that has always characterised Maseratis. The first ever cabrio to be developed and built at the company‚Äôs Modena, Italy headquarters, the GranCabrio is the only droptop in its class to seat four adults in full comfort in a uniquely designed cabin with style and luxury.

Burj Dubai - World's Tallest Building Opens for Business

Wow! At more than 800 metres above ground or 160 floors high the Burj Dubai towers above everything else.  There is a restaurant on the 122nd floor and a gym on the 123rd - about 440 metres up.  "Burj" in Arabic means "tower".   It is located next to the Dubai Mall and the world's tallest fountain, called the Dubai Fountain.  Construction started in January 2004.  Checkout the opening ceremony below...
