Top speed: 240mph - 0-60mph: 2.78 seconds Max power: 1,183BHP
Price: £400,000 Although its official top speed is 240mph, SSC reckons the Aero TT will actually do 270mph. If this is true, it would make it the fastest car in the world, ahead of the 252mph Bugatti Veyron. However, when it was tested in Nevada earlier this year, bad weather meant it "only" reached 221mph. It's power is awesome. When the driver changed into sixth gear at 190mph, the wheels span.
Top speed: 193mph - 0-60mph: 3.6 seconds Max power: 415BHP
Top speed: 210mph - 0-60mph: 3.2 seconds Max power: 650BHP - Price: £310,000 It's made in Switzerland, the home of watches and cuckoo clocks. It's made using the lightest materials on earth to improve performance. The 4.2-litre V8 produces 650bhp, but special editions - 850bhp and 1,000bhp - can be ordered.
Price: £65,000 The new Dodge Viper has the most ridiculous engine the car's ever had - a brand new 8.4-litre V10! It's not what you'd call shy on the power front either, pushing out a monumental 600bhp! Massive 14in Brembo brake discs mean the SRT-10 can go from 60mph to standstill in under 100 feet!
Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 4.2 seconds Max power: 540BHP
8. Locus Plethore
Top speed: 205mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds Max power: 750BHP
Price: £140,000 Canada's first supercar for 30 years uses a Chevrolet V8 engine that can be tuned up to 1,300bhp. It's rumoured that the new model of the car will feature a central driving position. Fancy one on your drive? Well, the good news is that it'll set you back a pretty reasonable £140,000.
Top speed: 201mph - 0-60mph: 4.7 seconds Max power: 520BHP - Price: £182,095 The Ultimate Edition is a slightly tweaked version of the already amazing Vanquish S. Only 40 of these badboys were made, all of which were snapped up within weeks of their release. The main change is the colour - this version comes in Ultimate Black, the only Aston it's used on. Customers are able to request a stick-shift gearbox, as opposed to the normal paddleshift one.
I know most guys are already dreaming of the day they can even touch the wheels, tyres etc of any of these cars...dreams come true sha! lol

Got something to say? Do drop a line...I'm off to go get ready for my event, see y'all later. Ciao!

Meanwhile I heard that the police in Lagos have started arresting people for indecent dressing. Now I really don't know how true this is, I actually heard it for the first time last week but didn't take it seriously until my younger sis told me today that one of her friends was arrested.
I find this so hard to believe, but everybody I've asked in the last two days have confirmed this new development which they say started last week. I can't even begin to understand this...what is indecent dressing? How indecent is indecent dressing? What is their yardstick for measuring indecent dressing? So we now have a morality law in Nigeria when the police haven't even started clearing our streets of armed robbers and area boys? They are more interested in who's wearing what?
By the way, aren't they supposed to make an announcement before they start embarrassing, harrassing and arresting people? Do the guys at the top even know about this?
Harrassing people for indecent dressing is NONSENSE! Not at this time and age...but let me stop here until I get all the facts right...
But please just to avoid getting harrassed or being exorted, mind what you wear out until something is done about this situation...What the hell happened to freedom of expression?
Also who has heard of NFL Michael Vick dogfighting scandal. People actually train dogs (pitbulls) to fight themselevs until one of the dog dies? The Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others were charged with competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines.
The operation was named "Bad Newz Kennels," according to the indictment, and the dogs were housed, trained and fought at a property owned by Vick in Surry County, Va. If convicted, Vick and the others could face up to six years in prison, $350,000 in fines and restitution.
I heard that these guys shoot these dogs if they get wounded after a fight...get all the scoop on net.
Anyway, Nigeria's Next Super Model screening took place today...all I'll say is that it wasn't what I was expecting but I reserve my comment till later.
Also I heard ex-Bayelsa Governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha has bagged 2 years jail term of each six count charges...what news!
I'll see y'all tomorrow. Take care

Kate Moss who finally dumped her rocker cocaine addict boyfriend Pete Doherty, has told friends that two of her sex tapes with Pete are missing in her home. She's scared that Pete might have stolen them to either put it on the net to humiliate her or to sell to make money to keep up with his lifestyle.
lauryn Hill's gone crazzzzzzzzzzy! At a recent concert in Norway, she was spitting and giving the finger to her audience. She also asked for all black security personnel, who were not allowed to look at her at the scene and backstage. Then she went crazy and started hitting the security guys. And when the electricity blacked out at the beginning of the show, she refused to continue, and had to be talked into getting back on stage again by the people who were responsible for the concert. What's up with her? Is she on drugs?
“I’d rather come out on a day like that, up against 50 — where people are excited about going to the stores and it’s an event and people talk about it — and be #2 on that day rather than come out and be #1 on a day nobody cares about,” West said. “It’s about things going down in history. It’s not that much exciting stuff in hip-hop right now. I think people are going to make it more than what I’m making it myself. At the end of the day, I’m making music and I’m trying to sell.”
With the way this girl is going, I hope she doesn't end up committing suicide. At a recent OK Magazine photoshoot, the former pop princess went totally crazy. Stole things worth over $10, 000 and destroyed things worth over $6, 000. The pictures didn't not come out well, she kept talking and acting crazy...now her family is siding with her ex Kevin Federline to take full custody of their two kids. This girl needs help asap.
This young actress is trying to mess up her life..Lohan was was arrested in Santa Monica for possession of cocaine, driving under the influence, transporting a narcotic into a custodial facility and driving on a suspended license. Sources say her blood alcohol level was between .12 and .13.
She was placed behind bars, and freed later on $25,000 bail.
According to police, Lohan’s assistant quit just hours before Lohan was arrested; and when the assistant’s mother came to pick her up, the red-headed moron gave chase. The assistant’s mother called the police, warning them that Lindsay was hot on their tail, and that she was headed for the nearest police station. The actress is now back in an undisclosed treatment facility.
It's easier to gossip about the oyinbo's than the ones here. I hear alot of gossip about our Naija people, but blogging about it might put me in troublo o lol. Anyway, enjoy!
