All about going really fast

Some cars look like they’re in motion just sitting still. In fact, it looks like it pains these cars to be stationary. Called supercars or hypercars, these cars can go really, really fast. Think Lamborginis, Ferarris and McLarens. To highlight those cars, a new collection is debuting this year, the Velocity Collection.
The inaugural featured collector is Ed Bolian of Atlanta. He knows a thing or two about quick cars.
On Oct 19-20, 2013, he and co-driver Dave Black and spotter Dan Huang drove from the Red Ball Parking Garage in Manhattan to the Portofino Hotel and Marina in California in just 28 hours 50 minutes.
They drove a Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG with an average speed of 98 mph. In total they stopped for only 46 minutes for gas, driver changes, and adding oil. Their moving average was 100.3 mph.
Bolian has made his living in supercars. He started a supercar rental company even before he graduated from college (with a degree in mechanical engineering). He later was sales director for Lamborghinis and McLarens at Motorcars of Atlanta.
Currently Bolian is co-founder and CEO of VinWiki — essentially a crowd-sourced CarFax — that now has 1.7 million YouTube subscribers.
For the Concours, he’ll be bringing that Cannonball-Run winning Mercedes, along with two Lamborghini Murcielagos and a Spyker he bought from Missy Elliott.
