“Best in Show” at SEMA 2016

dsc_0688-copyb_r

Morrie’s Luxury Auto spent two full days in beautiful Las Vegas for the 2016 SEMA show. If you’re unfamiliar with SEMA it’s, “”the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. It draws the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center.” So after we walked the show for a few days we realized just how difficult it is to explain to someone who has never heard of such an event. With everything from monster trucks to mini bikes, the show never ceases to amaze. You could spend a year trying to see everything when it reality the show only runs for less than a week! Nevertheless, we picked out a few of our favorite vehicles from the show to share with everyone.

News flash, Halloween is right around the corner. One could spend days aggregating a list of must attend Halloween and Fall fun activities, but what’s the point when it’s already been done? Twincities.com put together a lengthy list of Halloween events and activities to keep you busy through the Halloween season. Sure, it might not have that obscure local craft brewer pumpkin spice beer and food pairing dinner you’ve been counting down the days to, but the list is pretty darn exhaustive.

Making Trails in the Bentley Bentayga Off Road

 

During our recent track day Bentley was gracious enough to lend two well appointed Bentayga’s for the event. Even though they knew what we had planned for the day, they were gracious enough to send them out for us to use. While planning the track day we asked the staff at Brainerd International Raceway if they could construct an off-road course. They enthusiastically organized something special for our guests that wasn’t nothing short of amazing. The course they designed for us really had a good mix of elements to test the Bentayga and the optional All-Terrain specifications. The course started on a long hard packed dirt road, common in the north woods, while it didn’t challenge the Bentayga it was representative of what most people will encounter in Minnesota.

Further down the road we found deep sand which really showed off the ability of the terrain management’s sand mode, allowing us to dig through the ever changing conditions as the day went on. To show off how special the Bentley’s W12 engine was, we had two choices when it came to the inclines. One was a slow speed hard packed uneven terrain requiring a massive amount of torque. The other was a steep, loose sand trail requiring the speed that the 600 horsepower allows you to put to the ground. After taking customers around our course we had one more surprise for our passengers. We thought after showing the off road prowess we might as well show what this 5,400lb SUV could do from a dead stop to 60mph. Spoiler Alert: It’s 4 seconds flat

Monster Jam MPLS – Saturday – December 10th

I’ve been told I’m not allowed to swear in the newsletter, but this is the bleeping Monster Jam COMING BACK TO MINNESOTA!! “KIDS SEATS ARE STILL JUST $5!!” which might not be the case anymore, but “YOU CAN PAY FOR THE ENTIRE SEAT, BUT YOU’LL ONLY NEED THE EDGE” stays this time around. From what we’ve seen tickets start around $40 and go up to well over a hundred. We want to make sure to tell you about this one well in advance because you should be as excited as we are. Is Bigfoot still a thing?!?
