An Awakening

April 18, 2010

The “click” and “snap” of a door shutting…

Sound of footsteps down the marble corridor…

Feeling the hard stone floor on your heel with every stride you take. The cool air from the air conditioners slipping between your loose fitting summer clothes. Sending a slight chill up your back…

Reaching up lightly touching your finger tip to the elevator call button. The rims around the button instantly lighting up white…

The swift brush of the the elevator car slowing down and stopping. The clank of the car doors opening invade your ear canals. Stepping in feeling the rush of the pull downward as the car takes a dive for the lobby…

Stepping out into the vast entry hall…

As the entrance doors open and stepping through a warm wave of desert heat engulfs you. Breathing in hot air your ears hear a purr… The feeling moves down to the pit of your stomach as the growl moves closer.  Not a sensation of fear but, of pleasure. Of knowing that the beast that approaches… has been tamed…

The roar hushing now as the beast turns the sharp round about stopping at your feet. The sheen bounces of the polished paint coat under the desert sun. Everyone and everything disappearing from sight only the super car remains.

The purr of the engine seemingly grunting in anticipation for you. Derring you to make the first more, like a wild beast with a grudge.

A muffled sounds invades your images of the beast at your feet. “We happily await your return to the burj khalifa…” calls out a voice snapping you back. The eagle driver side door opens up as you look over.

Awaiting…

Gripping the wheel slipping into the form fitting seats…

Everything vanishes again…

The purring groans of the engine sooth your breaths…

The snap closure of the door cling…

Igniting the engine…

A flick of a switch sends the pump of the beat to your speakers filling the air.

Hitting the clutch kicking it into gear…

Roars fill the air as your pull out slowly. A beast waiting to be unleashed. Clearing the round about onto the main road.

A grunting blast and  shrill…

Sending the car blasting out of sight in a matter of moments into the desert haze.

Leaving a crowd taking shallow breaths your lips slightly parted…

The SLR by HaruMotors…

Attention to detail… Quality of craftsmanship… Brand Ideal…

All quality HaruMotors posses.

The SLR by HaruMotors is a quality staple to any luxury car enthusiast’s collection.

.

That being said lets get down to bras tax.

Hud:

The car is equipped with a automatic attaching hud among many other features. Now I have yet to decide if that is a feature I like or dislike. Since it has the potential to detach a pre existing hud it can be a inconvenience. However it’s features are pleasant. The familiar option to allow Friends or Anyone to drive. Horn and lights all small details we wouldn’t miss till gone. So we are happy HaruMotors remembers that its all about the little details.

The Car:

With detailed sculpted lights and sculpted light bulbs. Sculpted steering wheel, acceleration and brake pedals. The car has a level of detail not familiar to most of Second Life. The car has custom animations for the eagle doors for both driver and passenger.. Allowing its privileged owners and guests a level of realism and greater RP potential. On the topic of custom work. Though the concept that  the project for this fantastic show piece of workmanship could have cut corners is hard to grasp. The sounds animations for the car when stationary and even in motion are phenomenal. However when the car is its lower gear; It plays the same sound animation as when you are raging at the top gears blasting past other super cars as if they were standing still. Though in the higher gears the car’s sounds are fantastic and only urge you to press down on the gas harder. When driving in a more restricted environment. The sounds can be a bit much to the ear. Making it sounds like the car is stuck between gears. Flat out annoying. Making it seem like corners were cut in production. But when you look at the upside. Those pesky school zone speed traps and downtown speed cameras wouldn’t stand a chance of capturing anything more then a haze of a blur in their lenses. Leaving us to wonder why would anyone buy this car to go the speed limit.

On a personal note:

When on this photo shoot in the streets of Dubai. Several people felt it necessary to comment on the appeal of the car. “I love your car”, “Nice car!” and, the oh so familiar “That’s Hot” Which personally made me turn to see if Paris Hilton had picked up SL. Much to my dismay she had not (please insert sarcastic comment here).

So on that note; At the standard price of most luxury cars in SL this car is well worth the price. Taken into consideration of the lower gear sounds. This super car is still an accent to any enthusiast.

Rest assured that the purchase will be a pleasant one every time you step into the cockpit of the SLR by HaruMotors.
