Top 5 Places to Drive Around LOS ANGELES

Driving can be a real pleasure if not for the monstrous traffic common in big cities like Los Angeles. Even if your car’s air conditioning and music are on, the pressure, and yes stress, of thousands of cars moving at a snail’s pace can easily make you angry. In fact, many people who live in “The City of Angels” would rather leave their cars at parking areas or at home and ride public transportation to work. Nevertheless, there are times that you wish you could just enjoy driving your car without these massive traffic jams. What if you’ll discover there are still places in Los Angeles where you can enjoy the pleasure of driving and relish in the scenic views?

Your Car is Part of You

Can you still remember when you got your very first car? Did you recall taking it out for a drive? There is that inexplicable joy in getting inside the very first car you own. There is that strong connection between the owner or driver and his own car. It’s not only about the convenience of getting from one place to another. It’s also the feeling of fulfillment at realizing one of your dreams. Ask any first time owners what they did when they got their first car. Did they immediately take it to work or place of business? Almost all of them said that they took their car for a ride. Some say they drove on some scenic highways while others say they took their family out in their new car for a treat. Would you like to revisit such feeling once in a while?

You can bring some snacks with you and enjoy the ride with your loved one or family. Best of all, there are specific points along these famous drives where you can park your car and enjoy the view while munching on snacks. Are you now prepared to discover the top 5 places to drive around Los Angeles? Here they are.

Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive is one of the most famous roads in Los Angeles. Built during the 1920s to help make way for a massive housing construction in Hollywood Hills, it’s known for having some of the best spots of spectacular panoramic views. While you can always check out the phenomenal views of Los Angeles that Mulholland Drive offers, it’s best if you do it at nighttime. The sparkling lights and bright neon signs of the City of Angels at night when viewed from various spots in Mulholland Drive is nothing short of remarkable. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why some of the most exclusive homes in Los Angeles are located on this area. The road itself has inspired a lot of artists as numerous songs, poems, and even a movie, have been made for it.

Ferrari To Excite Enthusiasts In 2019

The Italian automaker Ferrari has long been the center of attention for the automotive world. They have produced spectacular cars since their inception and they don’t intend to stop now. Ferrari plans to introduce some new models for the year 2019 and the company hopes to improve on older models. The exciting upcoming projects include the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Aperta, 2019 Ferrari Portofino and probably a Ferrari 812 Monza. While the Portofino has been revealed, enthusiasts would have to wait for news on the Monza and the Aperta.

The Ferrari 2019 Pista Aperta is expected to make its appearance at an upcoming event at Pebble Beach, California by the end of August. There is not a lot of difference between the 488 Pista and the 488 Pista Aperta. The Aperta version is basically a convertible vehicle, which runs on a 3.9-litre V8 engine that makes 530 kW horsepower and 770Nm of torque thanks to a 90 kg reduction in curb weight. Reports suggest that the Aperta will have a limited run but the number of units that will be made is yet unknown. Perhaps the open-top car will get 700 examples.

Perhaps the 812 Monza will be the center of attention for a number of Ferrari enthusiasts and brand loyalists. The company hopes to debut the car in September and sell it to the lucky customers who will contend for the 200 cars. Only Ferrari’s top customers have been invited to the launch event that will be held at Maranello. The design of the Monza is very unique in that it will not have a windscreen or a roof (not the perfect choice for buyers who live in places where it rains a lot). Rumors are that the 812 Monza will take inspiration from the 1957 250 Testa Rossa, Ferrari’s popular racecar.

Although two of these cars are yet to show their faces, the third, called the Ferrari Portofino, has already made its way to world roads. The Portofino is a car which is built for the kill. With its 3.9-liter V8 engine, the car makes 591 hp and rushes from 0 to 62 mph in approximately 3.5 seconds going on to a top speed of 200 mph. To top that, the car is a convertible, so you can enjoy the fruits of driving roofless on a nice sunny day.

It’s no wonder whatever Ferrari produces instantly becomes a hit and with these cars we expect nothing else.

Porsche Mission E Rental

Porsche Mission E Rental

Although the Mission E is just a concept, Porsche has confirmed that a production version based on it will be arriving in the next year or so. Visually, it shares some design cues with the 918, but it’ll be a very different beast underneath. Porsche is set to go all-electric with its drivetrain, unlike the hybrid monster that is the 918.
