The Audi RS5 hates to go slow. I found this out while idling in the stop-and-go summertime traffic of Kennebunkport, Maine. Like a running back who’d been up against an impenetrable defensive line, she was frustrated, looking for a seam to open. Passersby didn’t mind that the Sepang Blue pearl car was barely moving. In fact, they enjoyed it. Rarely does one get to see a performance vehicle in such detail at such a slow speed. They marveled at the agitated revs, imagining themselves behind the wheel on the open road, or even just in traffic, the focus of many emoji-filled eyeballs. Finally, after many growls and stutters, we found a tiny moment of clearance, the result of a quick right-left juke move, bringing us onto a carless stretch of Route 9 headed towards Cape Porpoise. A couple more dodges (stop signs, the defenders of speed) and the RS 5 was purring, a blue streak under a canopy of green. The car, like the running back, was off in an open field sprint. Our goal however was not the end zone, but a series of lobster “shacks” on the edge of the ocean, and boy did we score.

Ferrari 512 BBi Is A Piece of Art
“When Holger Schubert created his studio-garage space, he did what any self-respecting, Ferrari-loving, minimalist architect would do: he took his work-of-art BB 512i and built everything around it. As any showcased work of art deserves to be, Holger’s car is in the spotlight and on the pedestal that is the studio garage, which was designed and built for the specific purpose of working and living alongside the Ferrari. Holger shares the details of his car and of his enviable space, which includes a 16-foot driveway bridge, a ramp to roll the car outside to start, and some of the best views a car can take in of the Pacific Ocean.”
