2 Black Mega Braid Docklines 7/8' on 2040-parts.com
Reno, Nevada, United States
These dock lines are professionally spliced. The bitter end is whipped, and they have a 14" soft eye. I ordered them as 50', but as I measure them now, they come out to just over 48', including the eye material. I believe the rope used is New England Ropes, but I have no proof of that. They are very high quality dock lines, and appear perfect. I have never used these lines, but carried them in a locker on my boat "just in case". They appear as new. I periodically washed, and used Downey fabric softener on my lines, and included these lines in that maintenance schedule.
Mega Braid is a unique 12-strand nylon single braid, that absorbs kinks and is easily coiled or flaked. Developed specially for anchor and dock lines for larger yachts, it offers a combination of superb handling characteristics, excellent strength and controlled elongation in a torque free design.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine has been rated at 455 hp at 6,000 rpm and 460 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm -- the highest standard-power rating ever for the Corvette. An available performance-exhaust system boosts the rating up to 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet says the new LT1 with standard exhaust has 25 more horsepower than the current Corvette's base LS3 6.2-liter engine, which is rated at 430 hp, and 41 lb-ft more torque compared with the 2013 model's 424 lb-ft.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2
If you know anything at all about Lamborghini’s, it won’t take too long to work out that this will be a 550hp V10, but with 2-wheel drive instead of the 4-wheel drive we ‘ve got used to in recent years. So think of this as a hardcore drivers Gallardo – a Superleggera. Dropping the 4WD will shed a chunk of weight, and change the dynamic of the car from the LP560-4.

BMW has shown its new 2014 X6 crossover - the second-generation of the SUV that puts style over space. The low-slung BMW X6 again uses X5 mechanicals, but wrapped in a squashed, coupe-influenced silhouette. The X6 is a niche product in the UK, selling some 1700 in 2013, around a third of X5 volumes in a good year.
