Tanya Tucker was quoted as saying, in the release, «I used to be a wild thing, now I just drink a wild thing! I truly love the taste of Cosa Salvaje and certainly wouldn't be partnering with it if it didn't pass my taste test. All my friends did a blind test with different tequilas and Cosa Salvaje was the hands down winner, so I know everyone else is going to enjoy it as much as I do. What's even more important to me is how the agave and distilling process is environmentally conscious, so we're taking care of our planet too.»Recycled glass has been used to hand-make every Cosa Salvaje bottle. «Cosa Salvaje bottles are truly a work of art and we're changing the face of the tequila drinking experience. Cosa Salvaje is smooth enough to sip and the taste is perfect even for non-tequila drinkers.

The program’s prizes are awarded to inspirational individuals and talented young women, while its talks are an opportunity for people who have made their mark on the industry to share their views on the way women are represented both on the screen and within their profession. More than 50 talks have been held around the world since 2015 about the role of women and the issue of equality, not only in the movie industry but also in art and literature,” says the website.With the new partnership, Kering will now be able to significantly increase its commitment to women photographers. By becoming part of the Rencontres d’Arles, “Women in Motion” is joining forces with one of the world’s leading photography events, which this year will be celebrating its 50th anniversary, as per the website.“By extending “Women in Motion” to photography, through a partnership with this world-renowned festival, we have taken a new, crucially-important step in our action for gender equality,” says Francois-Henri Pinault, Chief Executive Officer of Kering as per the website.“The partnership with Kering is both a symbolic and a very practical way of showing our support for the recognition of women’s place in photography. We are proud to welcome Women in Motion to Arles,” says Sam Stourdze, Director of the Rencontres d’Arles according to the website.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the initiative   https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

RM Sotheby’s Offers 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series for Sale

2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will be offered in a featured lot at RM Sotheby’s “Fort Lauderdale” auction that will be held on March 29-30, 2019, in Florida. The pre-auction estimate of this unique and rare car is $375,000 - $425,000 and it will be offered in lot number 3082 at the sale. “FIA homologation efforts in the 1970s prompted Porsche to create its first 911 Turbo. The ferocious-looking 911 with its massive rear spoiler and wide fenders wrapped around sticky rubber quickly earned a reputation for performance. It was less of a scalpel and more of a brute when it came to whipping down a curvy road at speed. Over the next three decades, the Porsche 911 Turbo evolved with water-cooled engines, all-wheel drive, and, of course, far more power under its rear spoiler. To mark the end of the 991-generation 911 and to promote the abilities of its Exclusive division, Porsche in the summer of 2017 unwrapped the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series,” states the auction house. Some of the important details of this car as mentioned by RM Sotheby’s are that it is one of 500 built for the global market and it has covered just 20 miles from new. Another important feature of this car includes golden yellow metallic body with carbon fiber accents. The auction house adds, “Blending form with function, Porsche composed the special Turbo’s front hood, its roof, and part of its body kit in carbon fiber with slivers of copper woven in to save weight. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series was hardly just a styling exercise. A 27-hp bump to 607 hp made the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series the most powerful turbocharged Porsche for road use. The automaker’s dual-clutch transmission sends power to all four wheels, launching it to 60 mph in fewer than three seconds. Porsche dug through its arsenal to load the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series with all of its functional upgrades, including carbon ceramic brakes fed by black-painted calipers, the active sports chassis, and rear-axle steering. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series offered here is number 443 of 500, and it shows mere delivery mileage. The special car was delivered through the Porsche dealer in Larchmont, New York, and was fitted with adaptive cruise control, lane-change assist, and a front-axle lift system. It also features a fire extinguisher, Porsche Entry & Drive, Burmester audio, and carbon fiber floor mats with leather edging.” https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
