Perth Local Business: Valued Sponsor

For those who follow our blog, you might of heard that we’ve been searching for a sponsor for possible future club events in Perth. Since our blog is related to cars, we tried seeking high and low for a sponsor who are also in the car industry. After many knock backs, we finally found a Perth local business owner who was willing to at least sponsor one of our future events. What is more fitting then a Perth car hire company sponsoring our cause! In this post, we briefly outline our story.

Search Challenge for a Perth Based Sponsor

You might think that the Perth metro area is big and opportunities for a sponsor should be easy to find, right? From our experience it was the contrary. You see, the metropolitan area here is relative large. Covering suburbs from North of the River and also suburbs South of the River. Pretty much as far north as Two Rocks and as far south as Singleton. It includes about 30 local government designated areas such as City of Swan, City of Wanneroo, City of Joondalup, City of Rockingham and obviously City of Perth. As a quick guide of the metro area coverage, refer to the Google map below:

 

As you can see from the map above, it is a relatively large area. But what you have to keep in mind is that once you narrow down the industry niche (in our case the car/transport industry) in Perth, the number is not that big – especially when you are seeking a sponsor (for pretty much nothing in return, except a mention in our blog!).

Partnering Up With a Perth Car Hire Company

To cut a long story short, we ended up got at least a short term sponsorship from a local business (link at top of page). To be honest, they weren’t the first one to say yes. In fact, we had a total of three including the one we ended up going with. But the other two candidates (if you’d like to call them that) were not in the car/transport industry, despite us specifically saying that was somewhat a criteria that needed to be matched.

Anyways, the car hire firm even kindly offered to give us a free “word of mouth” spread to some of their select customers about our blog and existence. So from the bottom of our heart, we’d like to extend our out most sincere appreciation of their gesture. By volunteering to sponsor (albeit a possibility of only sponsoring one event) us already meant a lot. But their extended support by mentioning us to some of their customers were totally unexpected. So thank you!

Our Favours in Return

One thing for sure is that we recognise people’s kindness. It definitely doesn’t go unnoticed. So we would also like to return the favour. In comparison, we are definitely not in the same status as our new sponsor. By no means do we have a fleet of asset or large number of employees. So we know whatever it is that we give back in return will never measure up to their generosity. but we will do what we can do to raise their profile and perhaps even bring more business their way. With that said, we’d like to end this post by saying that if you ever need a hire car; then choose our sponsor!

The fast and the fastest cars in the whole world

As a car lover, pretty sure that you would like to drive or at least ride a really fast car. When thinking about speed, you may even feel like being a part of the Fast and the Furious movie, right? But, if you were given a chance to drive a real speedy car, how far can you go? Do you think you can manage the speed because if you are not an expert and a professional driver for high performance and high speed cars, then it would be very risky for you?

Have you seen speedy cars in Perth or in part of Australia? If you have seen one, then I am sure that you find it amazing. Most car lovers love seeing speedy cars and they can only see that in car shows and events, especially, if they do not own one. Anyway, we have here a list of the fast and the fastest cars for Perth car lovers and you can find these in the whole world.

The Hennessey Venom F5

On top is the Hennessey Venom F5 that was manufactured by the Hennessey Special Vehicles in Texas and that is under the division of the Hennessey Performance Engineering. Do you know that during the SEMA Show, this mobile was seen for the very first time on November 1st of 2017, which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Hennessey Venom F5 comes with a 2.0 second and a 0-60 mph or 0-97 km/h acceleration and then, it can also be projected at top speed of 301 mph or 484 km/h.

The Bugatti Chiron

Have you seen a Bugatti Chiron? If you have $2.6 million, then you would surely want to buy this car. This Bugatti Chiron has a 1500 hp engine and comes with a 271 mph top speed.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS

On October 1, 2017, the Koenigsegg Agera RS was first driven by Niklas Lilja at an airfield in Vandel, Denmark. He started driving it at 0 km/h to 400 km/h and then, he took it back to 0 within 36.44 seconds.

The Koenigsegg Agera One:1

We have another speedy car from the Koenigsegg. In March of 2014, this Koenigsegg Agera One:1 was presented by the Geneva Motor Show. It has a 5.0-Litre V8 engine with twin turbocharged and then, it produces 1,379 PS or 1,014 kW at 7500 rpm with 1,371 N-m or 1,011 lb-ft torque at 6000 rpm. The engine weighs 434 lbs or 197 kg. It also comes with a dual 7-speed clutch paddle shift transmission.

The Hennessey Venom GT

And then, another speedy car from the Hennessey is the Hennessey Venom GT that runs at 270 mph. It also comes with a 7.0-Liter V8 Twin Turbocharged engine. It is also producing 1,244 horsepower with a 1,155 lb-ft torque. It can let you fly up to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds. And then, when it comes to acceleration, it can accelerate from 0 to 200 mph in 14.51 seconds only.

If you are a car lover, you would surely appreciate every fast car that you can see in your area. In my opinion, if you cannot appreciate speedy cars just like the cars from the Fast and the Furious movie, then you better check these cars from different events and you will learn to appreciate them.

The most amazing tuner cars you would love to have

There are countless car lovers in Perth. Most of them have their own cars. Some of them would really love to modify or customize their cars, but there are also those who would like their car to be very simple. Anyway, no matter what you want to happen to your cars as long as you love what you are doing, go for it. A car lover would always love anything about his own car, anyway. So, tuning up will surely be something that will amaze you.

There are those who really needs a tuner, especially, if they go for car racing events as well as car show events. Tuners are necessary in such events. Indeed, it requires a big amount of fund that is why most of those people appreciate it so much when they have sponsors. Without their sponsors, they will need to finance tuning their cars. If they have sufficient funds, then spending is not a problem for them. But, if they have no money to spend, then that is a problem because they need it badly.

Tuner Cars are vehicles that are tuned or customized for maximum performance. This includes the engines or suspension. There are also others, who needs to customize more than that because they are eager and determined to win their race. By the way, we have here a few tuner cars that you would surely find amazing.

Honda Civic

This model is usually more affordable than other brands of cars. But, with this one, you can always tune it up. Pretty sure that you will find it easy to tune up the chassis as well as the engine. You can choose the built that you would like, depending on your purpose, such as for drag racing, showcase or auto crossing.

Chevrolet Corvette

A vette will always be considered as an icon among the drag racers. This car is actually a muscle car that focuses on great handling. Last year, you may even get a corvette with 650 horsepower. But, after tuning it up, it may even get to 1000. That goes to a real performance, right?

Ford Escort RS Cosworth

This is an awesome car because this is also an ideal car for racing with 4 cylinders. It comes with a 2.0-L Cosworth YBT engine, producing 217 hp, but that is the standard one. Consider tuning it up and it can reach up to 1000 hp. Sounds perfectly tuned, right?

Mazda MX-5 Miata

This one looks like a toy, but this is an ideal small sports car. You can modify it, depending on your need and purpose. Anyway, this is also good for drag racing, drifting, dodging and autocross. You will surely find this car with potential, especially after tuning it up.

Volkswagen Baja Bug

This beetle car is a modified one, originating in Southern California in 1960. This might be a bug car for you, but after customizing it, you will surely find it amazing. It is an ideal and a perfect car for different car show events.

The Best Customized Cars in the World

As a car enthusiast, there are many things that we would love to do with our cars. Anyway, when it comes to modifying and customizing cars, it is either we do it on our own or we bring it to car shops to do the work. It could have been better if it is very easy to do such customizing, modifying and upgrading anything in our cars. But, it’s not because only experts and skilled are the ones, who are capable of bringing out the best in our cars.

If you have a car, what would you like to modify, upgrade or enhance? Just make sure that you will have enough money to spend for that because money is involved here. If you are customizing something, you have to make sure that the material that you are going to use comes with a high quality. Therefore, the bulk of money is a necessity. This is the reason why some car lovers do not even bother customizing their cars. They are already satisfied with what the manufacturer has to avoid spending.

Anyway, this is just an optional task that you may do to your own cars. If you want it very simple, then you do not need to do anything with it. What matters most is that you know how to maintain it properly. This is the key to the long life span of your car. So, you have to make sure that you are going to take care of it and treat it as a baby.

Anyway, we have here a few of the best customized cars that you can find in the whole world. Pretty sure that you are all wanting to see it and personally witness how it runs.

The SP275 RW

This SP275 is a Ferrari car, basing from the F12 TDF and was customized to look like a 275 GBT. This car was even shown in an event in Daytona. It has a 6.3-L V12 with a TDF. Can you imagine how fast the car is? Taking part in the one-off program of Ferrari is really difficult and this model did it. So, whoever owns this car is remarkable.

The 458 MM Speciale

This car was customized, basing on a 458 Speciale at 4.5-L V8 comes with a 597 horsepower. If you are going to look at this car, it will just look like other standard Ferrari car designs.
