At 590 Feet,"Worlds Largest Yacht" Revealed As Testing And Trials Begin

Introducing the Worlds Largest, Private, and Fastest, MegaYacht ever built.  Peter Seyfferth, from TheYachtPhoto.com, said: 'During the three days of trials, Azzam reached an amazing top speed of 31.5 knots, making her not only the longest but also by far the fastest megayacht in the world.

'Such a speed is absolutely exceptional for a yacht of this size. It can travel in excess of 30 knots, with power coming from a combination of two gas turbines and two diesel engines with a total of 94,000 horsepower.

'Her elegant, sleek lines are another feature which distinguish Azzam from all the other yachts above 150 metres.' Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi was the engineer behind the megayacht, and assembled a team to work on the ultra-sophisticated project.

He was told by the yacht's secret buyer to build a vessel which was innovative and had a timeless design which would be able to travel at high speed and in shallow waters. The exterior design, which has been described as 'surprisingly slender' was carried out by Nauta Yachts, with interior designer Christophe Leoni working on Azzam's inside.

Azzam is expected to be delivered to its owner later this year.
Azzam has taken pole position as the world's largest yacht just ahead of Eclipse, a 533-foot boat owned by Roman Abramovich.
Yachtspotters have now photographed Azzam, believed to have been ordered by a Middle-Eastern billionaire, while being tested on the North Sea. We are sure you will hear and see a lot more about the yacht in the coming months. BWN

The yacht, Azzam, is 590 feet (that's 2 football fields long!) 

and cost a staggering $ 609 million to build

The megayacht spent three years at the shipbuilder's docks in Bremen,

and has been praised for its sleek lines

Quite Majestic: Believed to have been pictured here in the North Sea, the yacht was first unveiled as it slipped into the water back in April.

Experts claim the megayacht reached a speed of 31.5 knots during its trials,

 making it by far the fastest in the world also.

Azzam has taken the top spot as the world's largest yacht, since Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich launched his "Worlds Largest" called Eclipse at 557 Feet

The vessel will be delivered to its owner, believed to be a

Middle-Eastern billionaire, later in 2013

Introducing The Most Expensive Cars In The World

Ultra-expensive luxury vehicles aren't exactly known as being fuel efficient. The Bugatti Veyron, for example, gets a shameful 10 miles per gallon. The Rimac Concept_One sports car wants to shake up those preconceptions — it's an electric sports car that puts other electric vehicles to shame by virtually every measure other than price. That's the only catch: This two-door beast will set you back just under $1 million. But hey, if you're going to spend a million dollars on a sports car, it might as well be Earth-friendly.

As you'd expect, the Concept_One is blazing fast — it boasts a top speed of 190 mph, and can accelerate to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds. Where this supercar really shines, though, is in its range. According to Rimac, the 1,066 hp engine can power the Concept_One for a full 372 miles on a single charge, nearly double the range of the bargain-priced SIM-Lei Japanese concept car.

Only 88 of these electric vehicles are being made, so if you want one, you'd better act fast. After all, getting the paperwork done on that second, third, and fourth mortgage so you can afford the $1,000,000 price tag is going to take some time.
