Volkswagen Golf R 400 Concept

volkswagen-golf-r-400-concept-01-960x640Checkout this Volkswagen Golf concept car that debuted earlier this year. It will be show in North America for the first time in Los Angeles soon, but catch a peek at a few pics and some info on this car here on


After making its global debut at the Beijing Auto Show earlier this year, Volkswagen will be presenting the Golf R 400 concept car for the first time in North America at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The “400” in the name refers to the vehicle’s 400 PS (394 horsepower) 2.0-liter TSI engine, which propels the car from zero to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 173 mph. With its all-wheel drive system, the Golf R 400 weighs just 3,130 pounds thanks in part to its compact high-performance engine and lightweight dual-clutch gearbox. Its weight-to-power ratio is a stellar 7.72 pounds per horsepower. The car is painted in “Silver Flake” and features a glossy black roof, carbon-look front splitter, and genuine carbon mirror caps. Inside, additional carbon accents further reiterate the Golf R 400’s sporty nature. via BryanFarmer


Looks like: A Volkswagen Golf R that came back from summer break between junior high and high school rocking a more athletic build and edgier fashions for freshman year
Defining characteristics: Sharper edges, defining creases and a squared-off shape on the outside; race-ready appointments on the inside; amped-up engine under the hood
Ridiculous features: Bolstered-and-badged sport seats with supersized head restraints resembling a sad space invader
Chance of being mass-produced: Seems pretty esoteric, most fitting as a tribute to VW’s racing history

Stay tuned for more cool cars here on our blog. Until next time. #8and9life

“BEYOND THE LIGHTS” Free Screening Passes


If you are in the South Florida area, here is your chance to check out the new movie “Beyond The Lights” before it is released this Friday.

Beyond the Lights is the story of Noni, the music world’s latest superstar. But not all is what it seems, and the pressures of fame have Noni on the edge – until she meets Kaz Nicol, a young cop and aspiring politician who’s been assigned to her detail. Drawn to each other, Noni and Kaz fall fast and hard, despite the protests of those around them who urge them to put their career ambitions ahead of their romance. But it is ultimately Kaz’s love that gives Noni the courage to find her own voice and break free to become the artist she was meant to be.

Introducing the LEBRON 12 Dunk Force

LeBron James’s keen eyesight combined with his uncommon speed and agility translates to pinpoint, instinctual decisions, much like the way a hummingbird sees and navigates.

Introducing the LEBRON 12 Six Meridians

A key component of LeBron James’s training recovery and preparation is massage therapy. The ancient Chinese practice of reflexology releases energy to different points of the body, or meridians, when massaging pressure points in the feet and hands.

Freehand Profit Master Chief Gaming Helmet

Freehand Profit Master Chief Gaming Helmet

Freehand’s latest creation is a Halo gaming helmet made out of 3 pairs of Lebron Xi King’s Crown Exts. This is a sick collabo, and one of Freehand’s illest creations thus far in my opinion! We’ve seen him add cool items to his mask like the horns on his Toro 4 mask, and the shoulder and chest attachment to the Ewing 33 Hi mask. But this helmet, especially with using such a extraordinary shoe like the Lebron Xi, definitely sets this piece apart from the pack. Checkout full info and pics below and keep it locked here for more Freehand Profit updates!


Just in time for the anticipated return of Halo in the form of the Master Chief Collection, Freehand Profit & ASTRO Gaming came together once again to create a one of a kind piece of art where sneakers and gaming collide.


The 88th sneaker mask by Freehand Profit, the Master Chief helmet features ASTRO Gaming‘s new A50 Halo Headset. Ready for battle, the A50’s armored frame has been decked out with the original Spartan green, is accented with gold vertical size adjusters, and proudly displays the Master Chief’s 117 Spartan tag. The headset’s integrated MixAmp™ gives players the power of Dolby headphone audio and the AG1 chat cable enables clear communication with your team. Whether your passion is campaign or multiplayer, the Halo Xbox A50 completes the hardcore Halo fan’s experience. Click here to see more Halo Edtion headsets from ASTRO Gaming.


The helmet and accompanying shoulder pads and chest/back plate are made from 3 pairs of Lebron XI EXT “King’s Crown”and is modeled by Mingyu Chu of Chu Media Studios (Director of the upcoming Freehand Profit documentary ‘A Cut Above’ & founder of Chu Media Studios). Mingyu was also an actor in the Halo short film – Halo: HelljumpersThe helmet and armor created by Freehand Profit also feature parts of armor from the film as well as pieces of an ASTRO Gaming back pack, patches & even a baseball cap.
