Like most boys, Dashon Goldson became interested in cars as a child, picking it up from his dad. The NFL safety vividly remembers his dad’s BMW 7-Series and driving around L.A. as a kid – a memory that later fueled his love for cars. “He had it sitting on some nice Giovannas; I remember it like it was yesterday,” the 29-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers player recalls. “Every time we’d pull up anywhere, it would get attention. Everybody liked that car.”



Despite falling in love with his dad’s BMW, Goldson never grew up lusting after a particular car and it wasn’t until college that he started to become interested in fast cars and luxury rides. “When I was training for the combine, I told my training coaches that whenever I get some money, I’m going to buy myself a Lamborghini and a Rolls-Royce. And since then, I’ve been able to get two Rolls-Royces.”



Making good on his promise, Goldson has both a Ghost and Wraith sitting pretty in his garage, in addition to a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, Fisker Karma, Range Rover and Jaguar XJ. Goldson’s Ghost is his “all purpose kind of car,” mentioning that he can either drive it himself or hire a driver to take him out when he’s looking for a fun night out. His Wraith, on the other hand, is a ride he couldn’t pass up and was the natural progression after falling in love with the Ghost.

“You can feel the difference in the two cars,” he says. “The Ghost is bigger than the Wraith, but the Wraith is sportier. It’s not as fast as a sports car, but it has that feel and look to it.”



Because he didn’t see many Fisker Karmas out on the road, he decided to add it to his fleet. “It’s eye-catching for sure. I like rare things and it’s a rare car to see when you’re driving. I know there’s a lot of talk about problems that they have, but, honestly, I’ve never had any problems with mine. I like the way it drives. It’s not as fast as it looks, though, but it’s still great car.”



All that’s missing from his collection is that Lamborghini he first wanted before he entered the NFL, which is his next big car purchase. Torn between either an Aventador or the upcoming Huracán, Goldson has been giving the Aventador a thorough test drive thanks to a friend who loaned him one for a few weeks. But because he’s a bit of a speedster, he’s scared of what will happen when he owns his “I’m scared because I’m a fast driver,” he laughs. “And that car is so fast. I had a 2007 Cadillac Escalade when I first got into the league and I used to drive that thing as if it were a Lamborghini. My friends would tell me I couldn’t get a Lambo because I’d kill myself in one because of the way I drive. There’s so much muscle in that car that you barely touch the gas and that thing just jumps. All I know is that I’m going to get one really soon, I just have to decide which model I really want.”



But until he gets his Lamborghini his Jaguar is his favorite car at the moment. Complementing the way it drives and “hugs the road,” it’s his favorite because he gets more comments on the Jag than any other of his cars. “It gets more attention than either Rolls-Royce. But it’s supp’d up, which is probably why.” Goldson had it wrapped in black satin and added a touch of gold to the wheels, in addition to an exhaust, to make it stand out from others like it.



And when he’s out in Florida during the season, Goldson has his Mercedes-Benz CL and a 2013 Dodger Charger that’s customized with a wrap, custom wheels, exhaust and more. But this season, he’ll include his Jag to his Florida-based stable because he doesn’t like that one “just sitting around” – something that he doesn’t have the other rides do much of either. “I drive each one at least once a week,” he says. “I mean, why wouldn’t I drive them all? I bought each one to drive and enjoy them, and that’s what I plan to do.”



Cars might be one of Goldson’s passions, with the other football. After becoming interested in the sport as a kid playing pop warner at a neighborhood park in Carson, CA, he then continued in high school despite a few setbacks of hanging with the wrong crowd. Finally, in his junior year, he became focused again and with the help of his coaches was able to play college football for the University of Washington before getting recruited in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.



Still pretty young and with many more years ahead of him on the Gridiron, Goldson is already thinking about his future. Involved in several real estate investments, his most recent one is his high-end cigar lounge in Southern California. “I’d like to do a chain of them,” he details, adding that he has a lot more plans in the works and hopes to get all business ventures in order before he retires. “I have an entrepreneur mentality and am networking with lots of people to get more things going.” Not only is Goldson extremely ambitious and a talented athlete, but he’s a man of his word and is on his way to creating an empire for himself - complete with a collection of fine rides.

Watch USA and Japan go head to head with the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the Nissan GT-R Nismo. Both beasts pack massive horsepower, from 600 to 650 hp, and incredible racetrack capabilities with wide and sticky tires, but who will come out on top?
Money in pools, gold toilets, super car race + a tiger = two of hip-hop’s heavy hitters collaborating for a massive hit single!

That’s right… Chris Brown and Tyga have released their music video for “Ayo” and Savini and RDBL brought along some sexy rides for extra eye candy. Look closely and you might catch a glimpse of a widebody Challenger, widebody Camaro, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Bentley GT, Ferrari 458 and Lamborghini Aventador – all riding on Savinis. Of course, the rappers brought out some of their own whips, including Chris Brown’s Aventador and Tyga’s Polaris Slingshot and Lamborghini Murciélago.

Big thanks to David Courtemarche for an amazing production design and Colin Tiley for his epic concept and direction!

The New Ferrari 488 GTB

Written by
The new V8 debuts at Geneva: track-level performance and responsiveness for the road

Forty years on from the unveiling of Ferrari’s first ever mid-rear-engined V8 model, the 308 GTB, the Prancing Horse opens a new chapter in its 8-cylinder history. The 488 GTB provides track-level performance that can be enjoyed to the full even by non-professional drivers in everyday use. Its response times, nimbleness and on-the-limit driving guarantee a unique sense of exhilaration and unparalleled driving pleasure.

The new berlinetta brilliantly encapsulates Ferrari’s experience in both F1 and the WEC, where the 458 GT holds the World Championship title and has won its category in the last two editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The new model also exploits to the full the know-how gleaned by Ferrari technicians over the last decade through the XX programme which makes extreme track-only cars available to gentleman test-drivers. The data yielded has made a significant contribution to the refinement of the electronic and vehicle control systems so that drivers can make the most of the incredible performance of this new car.

Powertrain

The Ferrari 488 GTB’s new 3902 cc V8 turbo is at top of the class for power output, torque and response times, making it the new benchmark for this kind of architecture. The engine unleashes 670 cv at 8,000 rpm along with 760 Nm of maximum torque in seventh gear and a response time to the accelerator of just 0.8 seconds at 2,000 rpm. These figures are sufficient to allow the 488 GTB to accelerate from 0-200 km/h in an astonishing 8.3 seconds and, when combined with the radical innovations introduced on all aspects of the car’s performance, lap the Fiorano track in just 1’23”.

The gearbox features Variable Torque Management which unleashes the engine’s massive torque smoothly and powerfully right across the rev range, while specific gear ratios deliver incredibly progressive acceleration when the driver floors the throttle. As is always the case, Ferrari’s engineers have dedicated great attention to perfecting the Ferrari 488 GTB’s sound, creating a new soundtrack that is full, clear and totally distinctive, as expected from any Prancing Horse engine.

Aerodynamics

The car’s aerodynamics also made a pivotal contribution to performance: its 1.67 efficiency figure is a new record for a production Ferrari and is the fruit of 50 per cent more downforce than the previous model and reduced drag. The greatest challenge was achieving these two goals simultaneously. Several innovative elements were specifically developed to do so, not least a double front spoiler, base bleed side intakes and, at the rear, active aerodynamics coupled with a blown spoiler. The aerodynamic underbody, which incorporates vortex generators, is highly sophisticated, too.

Vehicle dynamics

The Ferrari 488 GTB’s subsystems and electronic controls make its power and performance instantly available and controllable. It is, in fact, the most responsive production model there is, with razor-sharp response times comparable to those of a track car.

The evolved version of Ferrari’s side slip angle control system (Side Slip Control 2 - SSC2), is more precise and less invasive, providing greater longitudinal acceleration out of corners. Aside from integrating with car’s F1-Trac and E-Diff, the SSC2 now also controls the active dampers which renders the car’s dynamic behaviour during complex manoeuvres even flatter and more stable.

Exterior design

Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the new 488 GTB features very sculptural flanks which are the key to its character. Its large signature air intake scallop is a nod to the original 308 GTB and is divided into two sections by a splitter. The wide front spoiler features a double profile to improve the thermal efficiency of the radiators positioned at the sides. At the centre two pylons are combined with a deflector which channels air towards the flat underbody. The broad, low tail is also dominated by aerodynamic solutions, including an innovative blown spoiler which generates downforce without increasing drag. This works in conjunction with an aggressive ramp angle for the diffuser which features active flaps. The greater height required for the diffuser was achieved by repositioning the exhaust tailpipes. The circular LED tail lights have also been redesigned.

Interior design

In the cabin, the seamless integration of the new satellite control clusters, angled air vents and instrument panel heightens the sense that the cockpit is completely tailored around the driver. Usability was the key word in the design, leading to an extremely sporty ambience that in no way compromises on comfort. There are plenty of classic Ferrari styling elements too, such as the clear separation between the dashboard and tunnel, the multifunctional steering wheel, the control switch bridge and wraparound seats. The graphics and interface of the infotainment screen have also been completely redesigned while the design of the Ferrari 488 GTB’s new key takes its inspiration from the car’s cylinder banks and allows keyless starts.

The 488 GTB will make its world debut at the International Geneva Motor Show in March.
