Equinox Members Feel Bamboozled

After The Related Companies (parent company of Equinox, SoulCycle, Hudson Yards) Founder/Chairman Stephen M. Ross announced his Trump fundraiser (tickets which will cost up to $250,000) in the Hamptons, all hell broke loose – tons of memberships have been cancelled online, over the telephone and in person. After all, Ross is a ‘passive investor’ for Equinox and SoulCycle which are premier fitness centers for celebrities, political leaders and senior level executives alike whom all seem to be proactively involved within the LGBTQ+ and art communities.

Why are members so infuriated?

Many feel they were a part of a movement of societal justice and equality, not just a fitness institution since its inception twenty years ago. Fast forward to present day, Equinox has popped all over every urbane and metropolitan area’s infrastructure largely in part to real estate mogul, Ross.

Lately, the brand has announced a slew of designer duds, hotel chain and talent agency geared towards their top instructors. Today, more or less of its constituents will gather at the West Hollywood location (8590 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069) at 4PM to protest against Ross’s decision to host such a lavish engagement for one of the most ridiculed US Presidents in modern day times. A man who’s rhetoric has possibly fell upon the ears of young white supremacists like the alleged shooter at El Paso last weekend who gunned down dozens of Hispanic people at a local Walmart.

Maybe after today’s outrage, the Miami Dolphins owner, who was shunned for his actions by some of its players, will renege on tomorrow’s elaborate event. According to the LA Times, the soldout venue may raise close to 12 million dollars for Mr. Ross’s friend of over 40 years.

As of late, Equinox has announced the construction of a 20-story hotel and residential building downtown LA which is scheduled to be completed around 2021.

Recaro Pays Homage to Nürburgring with All New Sports Seat

For the 47th year, the Nürburgring will be the stage for its unparalleled 24-hour race, taking place June 20-23. Exactly 50 years ago, the planning for a ‘real endurance competition’ began, bringing to life a twice around the clock race on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring.

“It is truly the perfect time for us to create a product that celebrates this legendary race track, and we are excited to unveil it at one of the world’s greatest motorsports events,” says Ulrich J. Severin, head of Recaro Automotive Seating. “In close coordination with the Nürburgring, we developed the idea for an exclusive edition of our successful Sportster CS with a tie-in to the Ring.”

In dynamic driving, the Sportster CS uniquely supports and protects the body by surrounding it like a second skin. Its body-hugging contour has the strength of a metal structure with an ultra-thin, reinforced polymer backrest. Together with the pronounced side bolsters on the backrest and seat, the Sportster CS offers an excellent shoulder and torso support and keeps the body stable even with high lateral forces. These characteristics are essential for professional racers like Frank Stippler, winner of the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and in Spa.

“After 26 years of racing and series development, my body appreciates the maximum comfort and support of Recaro seats,” said professional racer, Frank Stippler. “On the uniquely demanding Nordschleife, with its many fast passages, corresponding centrifugal forces and significant uneven stretches of track, a perfectly shaped seat is worth its weight in gold.”

The seat displays a high-performance aesthetic through its exterior features and was designed with black and red high-quality leather. It was built with ultra-light composite materials and high-end foams for the shell and upholstery. Red decorative seams and sporty accent stripes on the back shell emphasize its dynamic appearance and is complemented by embroidered logos of Recaro and the Nürburgring on the integrated headrest. A numbered edition badge on the seat confirms that consumers have purchased an exclusive item.

The special edition seat comes as a standard with manual length and backrest adjusters, as well as seat heating. A side airbag can also be ordered as an option. After the seat presentation at the ADAC Total 24h Race at the Nürburgring, the special edition will be available as a driver and passenger seat via the worldwide Recaro service partner network. Only 999 units will be produced, and each will cost from $2,450. U.S. customers may order the product upfront from Recaro North America, with an estimated 12 to 14-week delivery timeframe.

ECD AUTO

E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for their prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, recently completed an aggressive LS3-powered custom Defender 110 in a stunning Crystal Covelline Blue finish.

Project Azure was designed to embody the iconic, yet subtle look of the British classic, but with something unique to the client. Pictures do no justice for the stunning Crystal Covelline Blue paint. Underneath the hood is an aggressive 6.2L LS3 V8 engine paired with upgraded headers and a full Borla Performance exhaust system for more power and an ultra-fierce growl. A set of 18” black Kahn Defend 1983 wheels pull together the clean exterior of this custom Defender 110.

The interior of Project Azure looks quite posh with Cadence Buckwheat and Black leather throughout. Occupants ride comfortably in the hand-trimmed custom seats. There are plenty of modern luxuries as well, such as a Sony infotainment system, a full JL Audio sound system, in-vehicle WiFi, wireless charging, and rear air-conditioning controls for all passengers.

If Project Azure is a preview of what’s to come from E.C.D. Automotive Design in 2019, then it’s a safe bet that they will continue to dominate the custom vehicle industry.

E.C.D. × PROJECT SAVAGE

E.C.D. AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN UNVEILS 150th VEHICLE, AN ULTIMATE VEHICLE CONCEPT HONORED AS MOST INNOVATIVE AND POWERFUL EVER FROM E.C.D.

E.C.D. Automotive Design (E.C.D.), known for building award-winning custom luxury vehicles, rolls out its momentous 150th truck, known as Project Savage. The eye-catching Defender 110 is an Ultimate Vehicle Concept and is celebrated as the company’s most innovative and most powerful vehicle ever built, symbolizing the evolution of the company throughout the years.

The powerhouse behind Project Savage is a Chevrolet LS3 6.2L V8 engine with performance upgrades and a custom ECU tune, boosting it to nearly 600-horsepower, making this brilliant D110 the most powerful vehicle E.C.D. has ever built. Every inch of Project Savage was hand-built to the client’s specifications at E.C.D. Automotive Design’s Rover Dome, their global headquarters located in Kissimmee, Florida.

Finished in a “Super White” full gloss paint with eggshell-black trim and a set of 20-inch six-spoke custom E.C.D. wheels give Project Savage an incredibly aggressive, yet modern look.

Awarded the most innovative vehicle ever built by E.C.D., Project Savage includes advanced systems never used on an E.C.D. vehicle before, including a wireless Warn Industries winch system that allows full use of the winch remotely within a 50-foot radius of the vehicle. Cosmetic innovations include an extended center console reaching the middle-row, providing passengers with modern luxuries such as wireless charging pads for mobile devices, rear climate controls, heated and ventilated seats, and premium sound with ten JL Audio speakers throughout the vehicle.

Project Savage is perfect for urban cruising, yet fully capable of off-road adventures. Every E.C.D. vehicle is four-wheel drive; however, Project Savage has been upgraded with front and rear-axel limited slip differentials, a two-inch lift suspension kit from Fox, and a hydro-boost braking system for premium braking power.

“Project Savage sums up the evolution of E.C.D. and what we do best. The fusion of classic and modern – that iconic, rugged look combined with modern performance and technology,” says Tom Humble, founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design.

BUICK: A CLASSIC REBORN

By Krishan Narsinghani x Vaughn Lowery

360 Magazine was recently invited to test-drive the redesigned 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir FWD 1 SP in Carmel, California. The model type avenir derives from a concept car introduced in 2017. Avenir translates to “future” in French and the modern aesthetics do not disappoint. Buick has since mirrored those design elements on multiple vehicles.

Walking up to the luxury three row crossover, drivers can start their engine with a new remote start key. The Enclave introduces sharper lines and athletic curves. The headlights and taillights are slimmer to create a skinnier look when in fact the vehicle is larger. Speaking of size, family trips just became easier with a spacey seven seater inside and roomy trunk. Buick reaped the benefits of high strength steel shaving roughly 400 pounds off the previous model.

This lifestyle voyager sets the stage featuring a bespoke-like interior with a two tone color pattern making the Enclave an executive family car perfect for a trip or a late-night urban outing. Avenir has not only set the bar with design but also in technology as a revolutionary rear view mirror transforms into a screen bleeding to the edges of the mirror for a second back-up camera that faces an eye level view. This camera travels faster than five mph to give a real-time view of moving surroundings. Apple CarPlay is also a new feature for iPhone users to drive safely. Located under the tail, drivers can kick a foot activated swivel to open the trunk. Finding the hands free lever becomes easier with a ghost lit Buick emblem highlighting the lever area.

Reduce carbon footprint through carpooling while the crossover adjusts fuel efficiency at 18 miles per gallon on city roads, 26 miles per gallon on the highway and 21 miles per gallon with mixed driving.

The team alongside Buick explored Carmel-by-the-sea and the fairytale land the city has to offer. The team joined Carmel Valley Ranch to see the daily life of a professional beekeeper. 360 handled the bees, watched honey come to life and even found the queen bee do her thing. While driving around the beach-city on California’s Monterey Peninsula, Buick stopped at the harbor for a kayaking expedition.  In-between adventures, the team had a chance to get acquainted with the smooth feel and driving style of the vehicle.

The Enclave packs a 3.6L V6 with 310 HP and also includes stop/start technology. Peak horsepower comes in at 6,800 RPM thanks to a nine speed automatic transmission. As one of the top luxury models, quiet cabins are enforced with QuietTuning. The weight saving translates to nimble handling and ride is soft while the body leans in the corners. The Buick Enclave Avenir’s base price is set at $53,500. Additional information can be found on their website.

LOUIS VUITTON × FIFA 2018

Louis Vuitton opens Pop-Up Store dedicated to The FIFA World CupTM Official Licensed Product Collection at Miami Design District

Louis Vuitton opens a special pop-up store at Miami Design District dedicated to the FIFA World CupTM Official Licensed Product Collection. The pop-up store will be open to the public from June 14th through July 15th and designed with the collection’s inspiration in mind.

Since 2010, Louis Vuitton provided a travel case for one of the world’s most sought-after, legendary trophies of the world: the FIFA World CupTM Trophy. For FIFA World CupTM Russia 2018, Louis Vuitton’s relationship with FIFA World CupTM has grown to encompass a new leather good collection: the Louis Vuitton 2018 FIFA World CupTM Official Licensed Product Collection.

The pop-up store features unique versions of Keepall and Apollo bags, and a selection of small leather goods inspired by the legendary Official Match Ball of the 1970 FIFA World CupTM. Made with the House’s iconic Epi leather first introduced in the 1920s, the styles will be proposed in up to three colors combinations.

The hexagon design is created using a three-stage embossing procedure that is both innovative and based upon the House’s historic savoir-faire, allowing each coloured hexagon to have a richly textured feel, reminiscent of classic footballs.

For a more exclusive version, a “Made-To-Order” Keepall is proposed in a rich palette of 8 pentagon colors. Each of them can be associated with one of the 5 colors of trimmings to create a Keepall in the colors of almost any national flag. Completing this sophisticated offer, an Epi leather luggage tag could be embossed with one of 35 national flags, including the nations taking part in the competition.

The new pop up store will present a unique, limited-edition FIFA World CupTM Official Match Ball Collection Trunk that is set to become an instant collector’s item. Based on the House’s traditional wardrobe trunks, it opens to reveal a stunning collection of 14 footballs: 13 reeditions of the Official Match Balls used at FIFA World CupTM tournaments since 1970, all fabricated especially for this project by adidas, and one Louis Vuitton designed football.
