The special secret sauce in John Legend’s album: the Grammys

  The special secret sauce in John Legend’s album: the Grammys NEW YORK (AP) — At the 2020 Grammy Awards, John Legend excitedly walked around with “a special secret,” as he puts it: He had just finished recording a batch of songs and felt like his new album was near done. And though he performed and won his 11th gramophone at the show, he productively used the week where most of the music industry flocks to Los Angeles to add new flavor to his album. At the Grammys he met Koffee, who made history when she became the youngest artist to win the best reggae album Grammy, eventually collaborating with her on a song for “Bigger Love,” his seventh album out Friday.

Ferrari SF90 Stradale 2020 review

  Ferrari SF90 Stradale 2020 review Does Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid do things conventionally? Don’t be daft. Welcome to a 986bhp technical masterpiecePerformance feels every bit as towering as Ferrari’s claimed 6.7sec 0-124mph time suggests it should, with the tightened ratios of the new gearbox making it easier to indulge the V8’s sonorous enthusiasm for its top end. On any public road, the accelerator pedal will reach its stop only rarely and be held there for brief periods, despite the four-wheel drive system’s impressive ability to digest the full output.

Ferrari in Music collection celebrates the intersection of Ferrari and music , reproducing in limited edition The 250 GT Berlinetta owned by guitar legend Eric Clapton , in its luxury version, is one of a Verified Purchase. Mattel's Elite Series is bargain in Die cast, but the detailing varies from model

Ferrari 's most expensive offering, the front-engine 599 features aluminum construction, a thrilling V-12, and a driving experience that makes the price tag seem like a bargain . Its exterior styling has proven controversial, but it must be seen in person to be appreciated.

The interior is finished in Castoror Light Brown leather, with carbon fibre trim used to finish the dashboard. Leather also covers the headlining, parcel shelf, and the backs of the electrically adjustable front seats.

Multimedia features consist of a Bose HiFi, satellite navigation, and a six CD changer. A Navtrak vehicle tracking system was also installed when new.

A journeyman at heart

Despite Clapton’s substantial car collection, he has clearly made use of the 599 GTB during his ownership. The odometer currently shows 23,595 miles, indicating it has not lived a life permanently indoors.

When new, prices for the 599 GTB Fiorano began at more than £170,000. The options specified by Clapton will have pushed the list price substantially higher.

Supercar specialist GVE London is asking £89,900 for Eric’s Ferrari. Given the celebrity ownership, and the sheer level of performance, it appears something of a bargain.

Ferrari Roma (2020) review

  Ferrari Roma (2020) review The Ferrari Roma combines classic style with cutting-edge tech, and GT practicality with supercar performance. We drive it.The Ferrari Roma targets Aston Martin’s core constituency. Priced at £170,984, it nestles somewhere between V8 and V12 AMR versions of the DB11. It’s front-engined, luxurious and packed with cutting-edge tech. It’s also achingly beautiful and, well, looks a bit like a Vantage.

This is a Ferrari 599 GTB which could sell for as little as 0. This is a Ferrari which will have a starting bid of just 0 when the auction commences in the coming days. Even if it’s the highest-mileage 599 on earth, it’s still the bargain of the century.
