“Working with Leona was a dream come true,” says Calum.  “As a fan, I first remember watching her on TV before going on to grace the globe with her incredibly beautiful voice. Now having the honour of working with her on one of my own songs is completely surreal and the passion and raw emotion she brings to our duet makes it even more special to me. I can still hardly believe that we did it!”

Leona adds “I remember the day Calum sent me this track, I sat listening at home and had it on repeat. It’s one of those powerful songs that touches your heart and such a beautiful ballad, everyone knows I love singing them! Calum’s performance on it is stunning and I loved being able to join him to make this duet version.”

Britain’s home owners are embracing TV Mirrors as a solution to saving precious space.

The state-of-the- art technology means they can now Skype, shop and watch movies on their normal TV, which then changes into a framed reflective mirror at the touch of a button.

‘We have seen a rapid rise in TV Mirror sales in the past 18 months,’ says Lara Kesterton, Managing Director of Overmantels Ltd.

‘With wall-space at a premium, customers want their homes to be full of beautiful objects rather than a big black box and lots of ugly wires,’ she says.

Researchers from Cambridge University found that, at an average of 76 sq m, the UK’s newly built homes were the smallest by floor area in Europe, so it’s not surprising British homeowners are adapting to make the most of their living space.

Lara finds that many of her customers want to conceal TVs and cabling in their homes without compromising on style or space.

Overmantels’ handcrafted mirrors with in-built TVs have solved a huge problem that many homeowners in today’s housing market face.

‘My husband’s TV was huge and took up half of our living space,’ says client Georgina Bowman, ‘now our mirror makes our sitting room so much bigger, especially when it’s off as it brings in so much light.’

‘It’s a traditional regency mirror, and has become a source of fascination as you would never know there was a TV concealed inside it,’ she says.

‘Many of our friends have now had Overmantels TV Mirrors installed in their own homes,’ she says, ‘once you’ve seen one you don’t know how you lived without it.’

The Lamborghini Urus, the first Super SUV and the third model line for Lamborghini, makes its UK debut in London. The UK, which is the third largest market for Lamborghini, forecasts a doubling of sales with the introduction of the Urus, reflecting worldwide expectations. Deliveries to customers of the Urus commence in summer 2018, when the Super SUV joins the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracán super sports car model ranges.

In a presentation by the Automobili Lamborghini board to more than 500 guests at the RHS Halls in London, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stefano Domenicali said: “The UK is an extremely market for Lamborghini, which has a strong motoring heritage and a particular enthusiasm and empathy with performance cars. The Lamborghini super sports DNA of design, performance, driving dynamics and driving emotion is clear within the Lamborghini Urus, which is also as much a luxury SUV as the most powerful. An SUV for the city and the open road, the Lamborghini Urus opens the door to new possibilities for both our customers and our brand, and we are proud to formally present it to one of our most significant markets.”

The Urus features a 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp at 6,000 rpm and 850 Nm of maximum torque already available at 2,250 rpm. With 162.7 hp/l the Urus claims one of the highest specific power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio at 3.38 kg/hp.

The Urus accelerates from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds, 0-124 mph in 12.8 seconds, and with a top speed of 190 mph it is the fastest SUV available.

In 2017 Automobili Lamborghini set a sales record for the seventh year running: up 10% over the previous year, Lamborghini delivered 3,815 cars around the world.

The UK currently operates eight Lamborghini dealers, with two further authorised outlets opening in 2018. Its Lamborghini London dealership is one of the largest by volume in the world: Automobili Lamborghini has 145 dealers serving 50 countries. The UK, which also achieved a sales record in 2017, is the third largest market behind the USA and Japan.

The Lamborghini Urus retails in the UK from £165,000 on the road.

  • Luxury residential development breaks ground one year after Aston Martin and G&G Business Developments announced partnership
  • Aston Martin Residences at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way is the first condominium tower to begin construction in Downtown Miami in 2017 and is on track for completion in 2021

18 October 2017, Miami, FL: Aston Martin and global property developer G&G Business Developments have broken ground on Aston Martin Residences at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way in Miami, confirming that construction of the 66-story luxury condominium tower is set for completion in 2021. The milestone marks the development of Aston Martin’s first real estate project, and the iconic brand’s expansion into luxury residential design. Aston Martin Residences at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way has become the first condominium tower to break ground in Downtown Miami this year, underscoring the development team’s strength and market confidence.

The striking building of curvilinear glass and steel is set to rise on one of the last parcels of developable land on the Downtown Miami waterfront and has been designed by Revuelta Architecture and Bodas Miani Anger, renowned for creating visually impressive and exceptionally well-engineered landmark properties. General contractor Coastal Construction Group will now begin work on the tower.

The 391 condominiums will combine breathtaking design aesthetic with an ideal location, featuring spectacular panoramic vistas of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The development’s seven penthouses and one duplex penthouse – all of which will enjoy private pools and spacious terraces – will be complemented by a range of expansive one to four-bedroom apartments.

Aston Martin’s design team, led by EVP and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, will design the interior and amenity spaces throughout the development. Key Aston Martin design elements, such as the signature carbon fibre reception desks, will adorn each of the tower’s two private lobbies. Highlight features will include doors with bespoke artisan Aston Martin handles, number plinths and kestrel tan leather door tabs. Residents will be able to relax and unwind just steps from their front doors, with 42,275 square feet of outstanding Sky Amenities spanning four full levels between the building’s 52nd and 55th floors. Amenities will include a double-level fitness centre overlooking the ocean, spinning studio, boxing gym, virtual golf room, art gallery, two cinemas, as well as a full-service spa, beauty salon and barber shop.

These exquisite spaces will be encased in a bold sail-shaped building reflecting the marina setting and offering superb views of the local surroundings. Residents will also be able to enjoy direct access to the turquoise waters of Miami via an exclusive yacht marina.

Representing Aston Martin at the ground breaking ceremony, Simon Sproule, Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, said: “Aston Martin is on a growth trajectory globally and across the United States. Our partnership with G&G Business Developments to create Aston Martin Residences Miami, forms an important part of that growth story and of our desire to bring our brand to new audiences across the world.”

German Coto, CEO of G&G Business Developments said: “In October 2016 we announced the partnership with Aston Martin and our plan to break ground in October 2017. Exactly one year later we are here to celebrate the start of construction which is confirmation of our commitment to follow our own strict timeline. This development has been extremely well received, in part due to the unique offer but also due to the outstanding job our official broker Cervera is doing. I am confident we will deliver on our promise to create the ultimate residential tower and I’m looking forward to admiring the view from the top of this special building when it is complete.”

Coto concluded: “The success of this collaboration is a testament to the team work, mutual trust and dedication of everyone involved, both at G&G and Aston Martin.”

The residences and penthouses, which range from 700 to 19,000 square feet, are priced from $600,000 to upwards of $50 million.

The sales centre for the Aston Martin Residences at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way Miami, Florida is open daily from Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has entered into a benefactor relationship with Rockbund Art Museum (RAM), Shanghai. As part of this arrangement, the partnership will bring American artist Asad Raza’s work Root sequence. Mother tongue, to the Rockbund Art Museum.

The installation will now form part of ‘RAM HIGHLIGHTS 2017: DISPLACE’, a project which aims to transform the museum into a boundary-breaking experimental space, fostering a diverse and yet open viewing experience. The installation will mark the Chinese debut for the work, which was first shown at the Whitney Biennial, 2017.

Additionally, and most importantly, the Rolls-Royce Art Programme will maintain a relationship with the museum and artist, to further show the work around the world. In this instance, Root sequence. Mother tongue, will, after a six day public exposure at Rockbund Art Museum, be reconstituted at venues which will be announced in due course.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commented, “Asad Raza’s work Root sequence. Mother tongue, is an intriguing and beguiling installation that challenges the conventions of how we interact with art. The Rolls-Royce Art Programme seeks to foster reativity and we are thrilled that the public will once again experience this unique and exciting installation.”

Larys Frogier, Director of the Rockbund Art Museum, commented, “The Rockbund Art Museum is honoured for the brilliant support given by the Rolls-Royce Art Programme to Root Sequence, Mother Tongue, a stunning artwork created by Asad Raza, that combines eco-care, visual arts, choreography and performance, with ongoing collective artistic contributions. In the framework of the DISPLACE art event produced for the RAM Highlight 2017 edition, the two organisations share the same value for excellence, high quality and unique creative projects. They also stand at the forefront of supporting new art formats, beyond the usual definition of art exhibition and art object. Such collaboration between Rolls-Royce and RAM is based on a sincere and full engagement in favour of the artists’ projects and as such it envisions brand new possibilities for contemporary art development.”

The Rolls-Royce Art Programme has committed to creatively contribute to the fabric of the contemporary art world and seeks to work collaboratively with internationally acclaimed art institutions and museums, to bring the work of extraordinary artists to the public, which might not otherwise be available for public viewing.

Root sequence. Mother tongue will bring the forest – a space of myth and fairy tales – into the museum. The installation will include 26 trees planted in soil-filled wooden boxes and local Chinese people who act as ‘caretakers’ for the trees, which collectively, the artist describes as characters, individual inhabitants in a living network. Each tree is grown locally, and their continuing growth throughout the installation forms part of the exhibition, alongside the improvised interaction of the caretakers, who might even opt to move the trees, as part of their performance. UV lights are strategically placed to encourage the trees’ photosynthesis throughout the installation, whilst casting a pink hue over the proceedings.

Objects belonging to the caretakers and relating to their personal histories are also incorporated into the installation, creating an intriguing and unexpected immersive experience. 


Raza intends to create an environment that provides visitors a park-like respite from the traditional museum viewing experience, shunning silence and sedentary observation in preference of interaction and stimulation. Adding a further complexity to the work, the space can be adapted for other artists or performers to interact with the environment, acting as guest contributors to the piece.

Asad Raza commented, “It is a privilege to bring my piece Root sequence. Mother tongue to China as part of this groundbreaking exhibition, DISPLACE, in which live presence and interaction will animate the Rockbund Art Museum. These are new grounds on which novel forms of art-making are being pursued. As the piece leaves behind a permanent grove of trees, I look forward to returning over the years to take care of it. Rolls-Royce’s focus on hand-made craftsmanship is linked to these forms of presence: when the living being takes precedence over the mere machine.”

The Rolls-Royce Art Programme celebrates a shared philosophy with the world of contemporary art. To date, Rolls-Royce has worked with leading international artists and key figures from the contemporary art world including: Yang Fudong, Isaac Julien and Ugo Rondinone.

Asad Raza’s installation Root sequence. Mother tongue will be publicly exhibited at the Rockbund Art Museum with the support of the Rolls-Royce Art Programme from 29 September to 4 October 2017.
