PAGANI AUTOMOBILI celebrates the tenth anniversary of the huayra at monterey car week 2021

PAGANI AUTOMOBILI CELEBRATES THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE HUAYRA AT MONTEREY CAR WEEK 2021

  • The most iconic Huayra examples on display at Quail, A Motorsports Gathering to celebrate ten years since the launch of Pagani’s second model;
  • World premiere of the Huayra BC Pacchetto Tempesta;
  • The key components of the Huayra R project are on display;
  • Participation in the Monterey Rolex Motorsports with public display on “Pagani Island”;
  • A Parade of Pagani Hypercars, dedicated to customers, at Laguna Seca Racetrack.

August 5, 2021, San Cesario Sul Panaro – At the 2021 edition of the Monterey Car Week, Pagani Automobili celebrates 10 years of the Huayra with the world premiere of the key features of Huayra R and an exclusive exhibition of the different models that have marked the evolution of the model from 2011 to date. The first Huayra BC equipped with the brand new Pacchetto Tempesta and one of the 40 Huayra Roadster BCs will also make their debut on The Quail stage and at the Laguna Seca raceway.

After the 2020 edition of Monterey Car Week was cancelled due to the pandemic, the most awaited event in California, dedicated to the world of historic and modern cars, returns from August 5th to 15th: a tradition of unparalleled automotive excellence for over 70 years. On the green hills of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club, on the occasion of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, scheduled on Friday 13th August, Pagani Automobili will display a special selection of the models that have contributed to the brand’s global reputation, starting with the Huayra, the first Pagani car to be globally homologated, that since 2011 has paved the way to the North American market. These ultra-customized Hypercars, equipped with state-of-the-art technical and artisan solutions developed for the most recent projects, are the result of a long research and development process aimed at the continuous updating of Pagani cars. A service that the Pagani Atelier has always offered its customers over the years.

The new Pacchetto Tempesta is undisputed evidence of this know-how. Previewed at the Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, it was specially developed for the Huayra BC and takes advantage of the latest Pagani achievements. The new package allows the Huayra BC’s high-performance platform to be equipped with a range of upgrades and solutions aimed at further unleashing the car’s true racing attitude.

Starting with a new front splitter and dedicated air intake, the Pacchetto Tempesta maximizes aerodynamic efficiency with a new rear wing that features an integrated central fin, six-pipe exhaust system and new suspension, while enhancing comfort and looks with striking interior details and the all-new Soft Driving mode. Thanks to the enhanced optimized powertrain, the Huayra BC with the Pacchetto Tempesta unleashes its new potential with a power increase of over 8% to 827 hp and 1,100 Nm torque.

The key components of the Huayra R project are bound to be under the spotlight at the Monterey Car Week during the world premiere at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club: on display for car enthusiasts there will be the all-new Pagani V12-R naturally aspirated engine, the six-speed sequential gearbox created in collaboration with HWA, and the ultra-light Carbo-Titanium HP62-G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 monocoque, specifically designed to provide the driving thrill of a true racing car, in line with the most stringent FIA requirements.

The racing set-up of the monocoque interior is testament to how even the most extreme, cutting-edge, models are fitted with unparalleled craftsmanship and unmistakably refined Pagani details.

On Saturday, August 14, the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Huayra model will continue at the iconic Laguna Seca raceway. A day of pure excitement. At the Monterey Rolex Motorsports event, all Huayra models will be on parade in front of thousands of fans and spectators at two different times of the day and, together with the main Huayra R components, they will be the feature attraction on “Pagani Island”, an area exclusively dedicated to Pagani cars.
Among the supporters of the event, Pirelli, one of Pagani Automobili’s historical partners, was happy to share their enthusiasm for the great achievements. In the words of Pietro Berardi, CEO of the North American Market: “Passion and the continuous desire to go beyond our limits are some of the values that Pagani and Pirelli have shared for over 10 years in one of the most fruitful partnerships in the automotive world. Over the last years with Pagani we have implemented several research and development projects, always focused not on only maximum performance but also new quality and safety standards: from the first record beaten in 2010 with a Pagani Zonda R on Pirelli P Zero at the Nürburgring, the iconic German racing track, to the use of Formula 1 modelling to develop the P Zero Trofeo R tyres for the new Pacchetto Tempesta for the Huayra BC. Last but not least, just a few months ago, on the legendary Spa-Francorchamps racing track, the record set by the Roadster BC equipped with specially developed P Zero Trofeo R tyres set a milestone in the history of “Motor Valley” super cars. With the new slick tyres, specially developed for the Huayra R, the outlook looks much brighter for the years to come!”

Gordon & MacPhail -125 Anniversary 1984 from Glenury Distillery

SECOND 125th ANNIVERSARY WHISKY REVEALED

 35YO Glenury Royal is second of four ‘last cask’ single malts 

Gordon & MacPhail has launched the second of four commemorative whiskies to celebrate its 125th anniversary.

With spirit hailing from a closed distillery in Stonehaven in the eastern Highlands, the 35-year-old Gordon & MacPhail 1984 from Glenury Royal is ultra-rare and comes from the last cask of the make maturing in the Gordon & MacPhail’s famous warehouse.

125-anniversary-1984-from-glenury-distillery

It joins a 1972 Coleburn whisky launched in September. The remaining two whiskies in the anniversary series are set to be revealed in November and December – each as rare and unique as the last.

No spirit has been distilled at Glenury since 1985, when it closed its doors for the final time and was demolished after a long history stretching back 160 years. Founded in 1825 by Captain James Barclay, the suffix ‘Royal’ was added due to the owner’s friendship with King William IV.

Its extreme scarcity in the market has since attracted whisky fans from across the world and it is a prized addition to any whisky connoisseur’s collection.

Gordon & MacPhail 1984 from Glenury Royal [RSP £1500*]

Just 397 bottles are available worldwide of this elegant and oily 35-year-old whisky, which was laid down on Thursday 7 June 1984 and has been fully matured in cask number 2335, a first-fill Sherry Butt.

Bottled at 49.1% ABV, the liquid itself is a rich amber in colour, with aromas of stewed fruit, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and toasted oak. On the palate, the whisky provides sweet orange peel, cherry, burnt sugar and dried fig giving way to a medium and fruity finish with notes of aniseed and sherry.

Stephen Rankin, a fourth-generation member of Gordon & MacPhail’s owning family and the company’s Director of Prestige, said: “Since 1895 Gordon & MacPhail has released single malts from over 100 distilleries, many of which are lesser-known or closed.  The anniversary series is a true homage to this endeavour.”

Sennheiser releases special Anniversary Edition of acclaimed HD 800 S headphones

Wedemark, September 2020 Since its formation in 1945, Sennheiser has shaped the future of audio. Its innovative products and audio solutions create outstanding sound experiences for customers the world over. A shining example is Sennheiser’s audiophile reference model HD 800 S, cherished by audio enthusiasts for its brilliant sound reproduction and impressive spatiality. To celebrate 75 years of audio history, Sennheiser releases a collector’s edition limited to 750 units worldwide. The HD 800 S Anniversary Edition comes in an exclusive matte gold colorway, each unit made truly unique by a laser engraving with the individual serial number on the headband.

THE EMBODIMENT OF 75 YEARS OF OUTSTANDING SOUND

Sennheiser releases special Anniversary Edition of acclaimed HD 800 S headphones

“Our 75-year history has not only been shaped by exceptional ideas and innovations, by taking on challenging projects and achieving numerous successes – above all, we are celebrating an enduring passion for great sound this year,” said Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, co-CEO of Sennheiser, who alongside his brother Daniel Sennheiser is the third generation of the family to manage the company. “Our reference headphones HD 800 S are a testament to this passion that has been driving us for 75 years. They are cherished by audiophiles all over the world, so we wanted to celebrate our anniversary with a collector’s edition of this very special model,” added Daniel Sennheiser, co-CEO.

Hearing the difference in every detail

Brilliant trebles, precise bass reproduction and a particularly clear sound image combined with a frequency range of 4 to 51,000 Hz make the HD 800 S a firm favorite among the audiophile community. The diaphragm of the headphones’ 56-mm transducer is made of Sennheiser’s patented duofol-transducer material to ensure exact music reproduction and reduction of resonances, keeping total harmonic distortion to less than 0.02 percent. Additionally, Sennheiser’s innovative absorber technology reduces the so called “masking effect”, an acoustic phenomenon that arises as the human ear is unable to perceive higher-pitched sounds that have low-volumes, while significantly louder sounds in a lower frequency range occur. The patented technology neutralizes the energy of the resonances, thus preventing any unwanted peaks in the frequency response and ensuring that even the finest nuances of music remain audible across the entire frequency range. The circum-aural earcups were developed with meticulous attention to detail as well, as the design directs the sound waves to the ears at a slight angle, thus creating an impressively natural and spatial sound experience.

The HD 800 S Anniversary Edition delivers the same natural and spatial acoustics found in the acclaimed HD 800 S

Luxurious design for luxurious sound

The HD 800 S Anniversary Edition is handcrafted at the audio specialist’s headquarters in Wedemark, Germany. Sennheiser uses glass-fiber strengthened plastic, a material valued in the aerospace industry, for the headphones’ housing, making them particularly durable yet lightweight. The earpads are made from a soft vegan velour material for optimal wearing comfort, while the grid and grills have been crafted from a stainless-steel mesh. The matte gold yoke, decor ring and shell ring give the HD 800 S Anniversary Edition a uniquely elegant look that is every bit as exceptional as their sound. Each of the 750 units in the collector’s edition has its serial number laser-engraved on the headband.

The HD 800 S Anniversary Edition will be avaible from September 22 for 1,599 EUR at the Sennheiser webshop, Sennheiser stores and at selected retail partners.

55th Anniversary Limited Edition

Technics anuncia el plato giratorio de accionamiento directo SL-1210GAE de edición limitada para conmemorar su 55 aniversario

Especificaciones especiales y exclusivas del modelo SL-1210GAE 55 aniversario
1. Esquema de color completamente negro

El panel superior de aluminio de 10 mm de espesor del SL-1210GAE tiene un acabado rayado negro meticulosamente anodizado. Además, los botones de operación y el brazo de tono también emplean un acabado negro de alta calidad que da como resultado una apariencia uniforme y de primera calidad.

2. Insignia especial inscrita con un número de serie

El SL-1210GAE está fabricado en su totalidad en Japón por manos de artesanos expertos, con un nivel significativo de procesos hechos a mano para garantizar la mayor calidad posible. El panel superior presenta una insignia especial, inscrita con el número de serie único para indicar que es un modelo de 55 aniversario.

3. Aislador

El aislante de zinc especialmente desarrollado presenta αGEL ™, un material suave similar a un gel con excelentes propiedades de absorción de impactos que también se utiliza en la plataforma giratoria de referencia SL-1000R “insignia”. La carcasa de fundición a presión de zinc de alta densidad ofrece excelentes características de amortiguación de vibraciones y una excelente fiabilidad a largo plazo. El nuevo aislante aísla eficazmente el tocadiscos de las vibraciones externas, asegurando una reproducción de música completamente tranquila mientras preserva todos los matices y detalles dentro de la señal musical.

αGEL ™ es una marca comercial de Taica Corporation registrada en Japón y / u otros países.

4. Interruptor de encendido / apagado de la luz estroboscópica

Apagar la luz estroboscópica le permite al oyente concentrarse más efectivamente en la música, especialmente en ambientes con poca luz.

Características del producto del SL-1210GAE
Motor de accionamiento directo sin núcleo

Los giradiscos analógicos convencionales tienen problemas con la degradación de la calidad del sonido causada por factores como la vibración de velocidad por minuto durante la rotación y la irregularidad de rotación llamada “engranaje”. En el SL-1210GAE, el uso de un motor de accionamiento directo sin núcleo (sin núcleo de hierro) elimina el engranaje. Además, la construcción de doble rotor reduce la carga del rodamiento mientras mantiene un alto par, y también reduce la vibración diminuta durante la rotación. Estos factores permiten la reproducción del sonido cálido y detallado de alto nivel disponible en discos de vinilo analógicos.

Tecnología de control de motores de alta precisión

La aplicación de la tecnología de control del motor desarrollada para dispositivos Blu-ray, y el cambio del modo de manejo según el estado operativo del motor logra un alto par de arranque y una alta estabilidad de velocidad para una reproducción óptima.

Plato giratorio de tres capas

El plato giratorio presenta una construcción de tres capas con una placa superior de latón rígidamente combinada, un plato de núcleo fundido a presión de aluminio y un revestimiento de goma sólida que cubre toda su superficie posterior para eliminar la resonancia no deseada, logrando así una rigidez general superior y amortiguación de vibraciones. Esto ofrece una estabilidad rotacional suave y una alta masa inercial que supera el SP-10MK2 (el estándar de plato giratorio de transmisión directa utilizado por las estaciones de transmisión en todo el mundo), además de tener más del doble de la masa inercial del SL-1200MK5.

Ajuste de balance de alto nivel

Cuando la distribución de peso del plato giratorio es desigual, se produce un exceso de vibración o ruido durante la rotación, lo que provoca una degradación de la calidad del sonido. Para contrarrestar esto, el equilibrio de la plataforma giratoria se ajusta en la fábrica mediante el uso de equipos especializados de ajuste de equilibrio de alta precisión para cada artículo después de que se ensambla la plataforma giratoria. Los giradiscos que se han sometido a un ajuste se etiquetan con una etiqueta que dice “EQUILIBRADO” para indicar que se ha realizado un ajuste individual.

Brazo de tono de alta sensibilidad

El brazo de tono emplea magnesio ligero que tiene un alto efecto de amortiguación, con un estiramiento en frío que mejora las características del material y logra la alta precisión requerida. Además, se logra una alta sensibilidad al movimiento inicial mediante el empleo de la construcción de suspensión de cardán Technics tradicional con el eje de rotación horizontal y el eje de rotación vertical que se cruzan en un único punto central, así como rodamientos de alta precisión que utilizan una carcasa procesada por corte.

Terminales de alta calidad

El uso de terminales de fono y terminales de tierra chapados en oro y chapados en latón evita la degradación de la calidad del sonido al tiempo que permite conectar y desconectar fácilmente los cables. Además, el uso de la construcción de blindaje metálico dentro de la carcasa reduce los efectos del ruido externo.

Construcción de gabinete de cuatro capas

Se agrega un panel superior negro de aluminio inmaculado de 10 mm de grosor procesado en una construcción de tres capas de aluminio fundido a presión, BMC (Bulk Molding Compound) y caucho de clase pesada. Esta construcción de cuatro capas combina la alta rigidez necesaria para una excelente amortiguación de vibraciones con una construcción sólida superior y un acabado y sensación lujosos.

The similar styles of designs of these pieces are not by chance. Both of these designs were among some of the first creations Boca do Lobo brought into the world.

Crowned Monkey El ron fue producido por Foursquare Rum Distillery en Barbados y envejeció durante 14 años en un solo barril de bourbon Jim Beam. El ron pasó sus primeros ocho años en los trópicos antes de ser transferido durante cinco años para envejecer en climas más templados y finalmente regresar a la región para su último año antes de su llenado, etiquetado y embotellado local en Nevis.

Como ron sin filtrar, todos los maravillosos aceites desarrollados a lo largo de los años le permiten al Crowned Monkey Rum tener una sensación suave y cremosa en la boca con notas de caramelo quemado, toques de vainilla y pasas doradas ligeras, lo que le da un delicado equilibrio en todo momento con un dulce retrogusto en el final de toffee ligero y notas de miel y florales aún más ligeras. El ron disfruta de un maravilloso acabado prolongado que contradice su 46% ABV, que también sirve para elevar el equilibrio entre más sabor con más fuerza.

“Era importante obtener el ron correcto, algo que fuera un ron suave”, dijo Mark Theron, Master Rum Blender. “El ron da vida a la cálida sensación del Caribe y ejemplifica la artesanía, por lo que es el complemento perfecto para cualquier colección de ron”.

Para simbolizar a Nevis, la etiqueta Crowned Monkey Rum fue diseñada específicamente para rendir homenaje a la exuberante belleza de la casa de la isla del Resort,

así como para resaltar los monos verdes verdes que son los embajadores no oficiales de la isla y el homónimo de la barra de ron en Four Estaciones. Además de la Botella 001, los huéspedes también pueden comprar un número de botella que sea significativo para ellos por USD 288 o por inyección (45 ml) por USD 22. El ron también estará disponible en el nuevo cóctel exclusivo del bar, llamado The Peak. La bebida se mezcla con azúcar de vainilla y amargo de cereza para complementar el ron antes de ser ahumado con madera de cerezo para mejorar los perfiles de sabor.
