In 1969 Robin Knox-Johnston won The Sunday Times Golden Globe Race and history was born on two fronts. He had not only become the first man to complete a single-handed non-stop circumnavigation of the planet, but he had also put an idea in the minds of two men that would ultimately change the face of offshore yachting. Guy Pearce and Anthony Churchill were fascinated by Knox-Johnston’s feat, but, pertinently, they were convinced of the potential of a crewed race following the old square rigger routes around the world. Nothing of its kind existed at the time and skippers were drawn in by the promise of such an adventure. Finding a

22 EXCLUSIVE Magazine

According to legend it all started over a beer in a Portsmouth pub; 38 years on, it is still gale-force winds, mountainous seas and sleep deprivation sponsor and an organising club proved difficult until Churchill and Pearce took their plan to the Royal Naval Sailing Association, who they wanted to run the race. Something clicked and, so the story goes, in 1971 in a smoky pub in Portsmouth Colonel Bill Whitbread, of the brewing family, and Admiral Otto Steiner, of the Royal Naval Sailing Association, met to enjoy a beer and discuss the proposal. The first race was held in 1973. Some 17 boats carrying 167 sailors left

the Solent on September 8, 1973 and headed south for Cape Town. Their yachts were the standard ocean cruisers of the time and the crews were, generally speaking, adventurers paying for the privilege or servicemen on an exciting training mission. The skippers were experienced and got paid but the spirit was Corinthian and this was very much a step into the unknown for almost everyone. They raced with the tools of the time, navigating by dead reckoning and sextant

(Roddy Ainslie, a skipper from that first race, admitted his boat was lost much of the time). Their paths followed those of the old square riggers of the 19th century and boats were comfortable. There were separate cabins for the lucky, shared ones for those who weren’t, and stories emanating from Sayula II, the winner of that first lap, told of six bottles of wine being consumed per day. Fridges packed with fresh meat were standard and it was not uncommon in the first few editions for a full-time cook to live onboard. The adventure came from the challenge of taking on the oceans and the elements at their most unpredictable, surviving enormous journeys to far-flung places.

Tragically, three sailors were lost in that first race and a further two sailors died at sea in the nine editions that followed. But the lessons learned have been part of the continuing evolution of the sport Four decades on from Pearce and Churchill’s brainwave, there has been a quantum leap in development. Today the yachts are built from the materials that go into space shuttles and the speeds quantify the improvement: in 1973, Eric Tabarly’s Pen Duick VI did the fastest 24hour run, clocking up 305 miles; in 2008, Torben Grael’s Ericsson 4 managed 596.6 miles. The most expensive, advanced technologies have gone into the transformation, leaving no stone unturned in

pursuit of greater speeds. And yet the lifestyles of the crews could not be more primitive. While some sailors dispute the often told tales of sawn-off, weight-saving, shared toothbrushes, the attention that goes into making a light boat has bordered on obsession. One race legend of the 1997-98 event told a story of the winning skipper yelling at his crew because three pair of sunglasses had been placed on the leeward side of the boat. The cabins, wine, meat, cooks and fresh water have long since gone, replaced by shared bunks, desalinated water, GPS, rehydrated powder food and protein bars. The crews are world champions, Olympic champions and only the most talented youngsters get a foot in the door.

Landlords and property sellers Energy Performance Certificates are now compulsory in Spain

If you are selling a property or renting a property for more than four months per year in Spain you will now be required to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPS).

What is an Energy Performance Certificate?

Will I be able to rent or sell my house without an EPC in Spain?

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) or as they are properly called, Certificado de Eficiencia Energética (CEE), are documents which will show how energy efficient your home is displayed as a rating from A to G. Much like the stickers you see on things such as fridge freezers, washing machines or air conditioning units, the energy performance certificate in Spain gives the property a standard energy and carbon emission efficiency grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’, where ‘A’ is the most efficient and ‘G’ is the least efficient.

Who needs an Energy Performance Certificate in Spain? Every domestic property for sale or long term rental needs to have an Energy Performance Certificate in Spain. This does not apply to properties that are currently rented out on a long term basis as this was prior to the new ruling. These properties will only require an Energy Performance Certificate when the tenancy expires and a new tenancy agreement is required.

Are there any exceptions? If you have a long term tenant in place you do not need an Energy Performance certificate in Spain. If your property was built after October 2007 you may find that you already have a Spanish Energy Performance Certificate. Likewise if you only rent your property out on a short term basis such as holiday rentals you may not need an EPC in Spain.

28 EXCLUSIVE Magazine

NO. You will now be required by law to present your Energy Performance Certificate in Spain when your property is for sale or long term rent. When you sell your house the Notary will need the original EPC and when you rent your house in Spain the tenant will have to be given a copy of your Energy Performance Certificate in Spain.

What if I rent my property out through an agent? Either you or your agent will need to get a Spanish Energy Certificate for your property for long term rentals or sales. An agent will not be legally allowed to offer your property for long term rent or sale without a certificate.

Who can issue the Energy certificate in Spain? Only certified and registered assessors are able to issue the Energy Performance Certificate in Spain. This includes architects, technical architects and some engineers.

How can I get an Energy Performance Certificate for my property? You will need to contact a registered assessor who will be able to assist you in getting your Energy Performance Certificate in Spain.

The ESSENTIAL Costa del Sol website - www.simplymedia-group.com


How much does an EPC cost in Spain? The cost depends on the size of your property so you would need to contact a registered assessor for further information. Prices vary along the coast so it is a good idea to shop around.

Who has to pay for the energy certificate?

defined timetable of the measures we must introduce. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a certificate which demonstrates the energy rating of a building. It forms part of the ‘Energy Performance of Buildings Directive’ (EPBD).

How is the rating on my EPC in Spain worked out?

Along with your Energy Performance Certificate in Spain, you will get a report giving advice about how to improve your properties energy rating. . The report will recommend cost effective measures which could be undertaken to improve the energy rating of the property. It will also contain information about the rating that could be achieved if all the recommendations were implemented.

A Registered energy assessor will visit your property and take measurements and recordings from things such as your air conditioning, your hot water system, type of windows fitted, type of insulation, type of construction etc. The readings taken will then be entered on line into one of the Governments approved programmes which will generate the rating for your property giving its energy efficiency and environmental impact. The programmes used are the same for all properties so a potential buyer or tenant will be able see the projected energy costs for each property viewed. Your Energy Performance Certificate in Spain will be registered to the Catastro reference for your property.

Why have Energy Performance Certificates been introduced?

How Long Does The Energy Performance Certificate Last For in Spain?

The EPC has its roots in the Kyoto Protocol which was a worldwide initiative started in 1997 to address the issue of Greenhouse gases. Since then the European Union have formulated the European Directive for the Energy Performance of Buildings, which applies to all member states with a clearly

The Energy Performance Certificate in Spain lasts for 10 years.

Ultimately the owner of the property will have to pay for the Energy Certificate here in Spain.

What if I get a low rating on my EPC?

What if I make changes to my property in Spain? You can have your property re assessed at any time during the period your EPC in Spain is in date

Can I get in trouble if I do have an EPC? The government have said they will fine people that have a property for sale or rent that does not have an “EPC”. Fines range between €3000,00 and €600,000 euros.

The cost of buying property in Spain It is important to be clear from the outset the real costs you will face when buying your dream property in Spain

T +34 951 403 340 | enquiries@sunsearchhomes.com | www.sunsearchhomes.com

EXCLUSIVE Magazine 49


As a buyer of property in Spain there are a number of costs and taxes over and above the property price that you will have to pay. Depending upon whether you are buying a new property from a developer, or a resale property from a private individual, you will either have to pay VAT & Stamp Duty, or a transfer tax. The different cases are explained below, along with the other costs and taxes that are common to both cases.

NEW BUILD From A DEVELOPER VAT & Stamp Duty These taxes apply for residential properties being sold for the first time or for commercial properties and plots of land. New Properties Purchase Tax: At present the buyers of brand new houses in Spain are liable to pay 10% IVA on the purchase price of residential properties (villa, apartment, etc), if the house is finished or is being built at the time of the purchase, plus an extra 1.5% stamp duty (Actos Jurídicos Documentados - AJD), however if you purchase land, commercial premises or parking spaces, then the IVA (VAT) rises to 21%

RESALE PROPERTY PURCHASE Transfer Tax House buyers of re-sale property are required to pay the Impuesto de Transferencia de Propiedad - Transfer Tax which is now between 8%. – 10%. This tax applies if the property is deemed to be a second or posterior transfer (i.e. not the first time a newly built home is bought), and is paid by the buyer. If any deposit is paid before completion of the sale it is not subject to ITP pro rata. However the full amount of ITP still has to be paid upon completion. In this scenario there is no IVA to pay. Transfer Tax for resale property purchases is calculated according to the following rate:

Any amount up to 400,000€ = 8% Transfer Tax Any amount between 400,000€ & 700,000€ = 9% Transfer Tax Any amount in excess of 700,000€ = 10% Transfer Tax

INCREASED PATRIMONY TAX PAYABLE TO SPANISH TREASURY When a property sale in Spain takes place, a capital gains tax must be paid by the seller. According to Spanish fiscal law, the buyer withholds 5% of the total purchase price to make sure that the seller does not take the money and run.

Capital gain tax for non-residents The capital gains tax is payable to the Spanish Treasury (Tesoro Público). The “Impuesto sobre la ganancia patrimonial” (capital gain tax) is a tax on the profits obtained from the sale of assets purchased at a lower price. For non-fiscal residents in Spain the capital gain tax will increase to 21% flat rate, from the previous 19%. Capital gain is calculated as the difference between the sale price and the inflation adjusted purchase value of the property (the adjustment is done by using the official coefficient tables from the Spanish Government). To this value the seller can deduct the adjusted cost of purchase and the expenses on the property, like renovations and works. When a non-resident sells a property in Spain there will be a preemptive retention from the tax authorities equivalent to 3% of the sale price, because this amount is in general higher than the capital gain tax to be paid the seller can expect a refund from the Spanish tax authorities during the following fiscal year. There have been talks of increasing the retained percentage but for the time being the tax authorities has set it at 3%.

50 EXCLUSIVE Magazine

Capital gain tax for fiscal residents in Spain 21% for the portion between €0 & €6000 (increased from 19%) 25% for the portion between €6000 & €24,000 (increased from 21%) 27% for the portion above €24,000 (increased from 21%)

Any seller who is over 65 and has been a legal resident in Spain for the last three years does not have to pay this tax. Residents and non-residents who purchased the property they are now selling before December 1986 are also exempt from the capital gains tax. The ESSENTIAL Costa del Sol website - www.simplymedia-group.com


PLUSVALIA A special reference should be made to the local capital gains tax – known as Plusvalía. This is a local / municipal tax that only applies to the increase in value of the land upon which urban properties are built, and that is levied at the time of transfer of such properties. It is calculated on the basis of the valor catastral (an administrative equivalent to the UK rateable value) of the property. The amount to be paid will depend on how long the seller has owned the property: the longer the period of time during which the seller has owned the property, the higher the amount of tax. This tax should be paid by the seller, though it is possible for sellers of resale property to try to shift the burden of this tax to the buyer. This practice is unheard of in regions such as the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada, though quite common in the Costa Del Sol. Spain is introducing Energy Certification for all properties and

this will need to be shown when selling. The system is similar to energy classification for white goods and an expert will be required to come and survey the property, at a cost of between €350-550.

COMMON COSTS In addition to these taxes there are also other fees that you must take into consideration such as estate agent fess, legal fees, solicitor fees, notary fees, property registration fees and the mortgage set up fee. In Summary, allow for up to 11% of the purchase price to be set aside for taxes and other costs. If the buyer takes out a mortgage these costs can be somewhat higher due to an additional public deed for the mortgage and the inevitable bank charges involved. In this case transaction costs might reach between 12% and 13% of the value of the property purchased.

Stylistically self-assured presence, exclusive appointments and refined sportiness – the new S-Class Coupé from Mercedes-Benz combines the classic proportions of a large, sporty coupé with modern luxury and stateof-the art technology. As a world première, the breath-taking two-door coupé can be optionally equipped with the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system with curve tilting function. Additional technical highlights are the head-up display and touch pad feature. Optionally available expressive headlamps, each featuring 47 Swarovski crystals, produce a uniquely striking appearance.

EXCLUSIVE Magazine 55


Like the S-Class Saloon, the new Coupé is available with numerous new assistance systems that make driving even more comfortable and safer. The “Intelligent Drive” systems include, among other things, PRESAFE® brake with pedestrian detection, DISTRONIC PLUS with Steer Assist and Stop&Go Pilot, BAS PLUS with junction assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive High-beam Assist Plus and Night View Assist Plus. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS features an additional function apart from the adaptive brake assistant, which provides collision protection from a speed of 5 mph: if there remains a danger of collision and the driver fails to respond, the system can carry out an autonomous braking manoeuvre at speeds of up to 65 mph, thereby reducing the severity of collisions with slower or stopping vehicles. The system also brakes in response to stationary vehicles at a speed of up to 31 mph, and is able to prevent rear-end collisions at up to 25 mph.

Design: sensual purity at its most beguiling

As in the saloon, the PRE-SAFE® preventive occupant protection system has been expanded through the inclusion of PRESAFE® PLUS. PRE-SAFE® PLUS can recognise an imminent rear-end collision and warn following traffic by flashing the rear hazard warning lights at a high frequency. If the danger of a collision persists, the system can also firmly apply the parking brake on the vehicle once stationary and thus minimise the risk of whiplash injuries by reducing forward jolt caused by an impact from the rear.

Sensual purity as an expression of modern luxury – this was the focus for the designers, and is the design philosophy of Mercedes-Benz. The aim is to create clear contours and smooth surfaces that showcase high tech while radiating emotional appeal. The sensual purity is reflected in the core design values of tradition, emotion and progressivism. These make up the guiding star, and are accentuated differently depending on the model. Mercedes-Benz creates a bridge between modernity and the avant-garde, between tradition and progressivism. Each model series has an assigned role and a very specific character, depending on the attributes on which the design focuses. And yet a Mercedes-Benz is always recognisable as a Mercedes-Benz. Because in addition to incorporating new stylistic developments, and in the interests of keeping tradition alive, the designers draw from a gene-pool of styling features typical of the brand.

Numerous optional equipment features are available to make the interior of the S-Class Coupé exceptionally luxurious and comfortable. For example, the AIR BALANCE package including “fragrancing” and “ionisation” components is available, as is the electric armrest heating as a component of the Warmth Comfort package. If the vehicle is equipped with the optional Seat Comfort package, the front seats feature the ENERGIZING massage function based on the hot-stone principle.

“Our new S-Class Coupé is one of the most gorgeous coupés of all times, representing the most radical aesthetic departure from its predecessor,” says Gorden Wagener, Vice President Daimler AG.

In cooperation with high-end audio specialists Burmester, two especially highvalue audio systems have been developed: the Burmester® surround sound system and the Burmester® High-End 3D surround sound system.

“The sensuous flowing silhouette in interplay with the clear progressive design language forms a perfect symbiosis and expresses our philosophy of sensual purity with absolute precision.”

The ESSENTIAL Costa del Sol website - www.simplymedia-group.com


The exterior: flowing profile of perfect proportions The flowing profile of the S-Class Coupé embodies sensual purity in a modern way. It is characterised by typical rear-wheel-drive proportions, emphasised by the hallmark Mercedes dropping line. The long bonnet with pronounced lines and powerdomes, the low glasshouse with high beltline, the accentuated wheel arches as well as the large wheels (18to 20-inch) and the broad visual effect created by the rear reinforce the S-Class Coupé’s aspirations as a masterpiece of automotive refinement. With a wheelbase of 2945 mm, the Coupé is 5027 mm long, with a width of 1899 mm and a height of 1411 mm. Its convex and concave modelled surfaces lend the S-Class Coupé a sensuous character. The sculpted appearance lends it classic elegance that forms a perfect symbiosis with the modern-progressive design idiom. The view from the side is marked by the dropping line in keeping with the emotional character of the vehicle. It underscores the brand-typical proportions like a signature. The lines are deliberately reduced to the basics. This creates a sensual, timeless purity. The creative interaction of diverse design elements lends the S-Class Coupé a superior, self-confident front end: in the centre of the vehicle is the further-evolved three-dimensional diamond radiator grille, whose structure is defined by rectangular, chrome-plated elements. It incorporates the central Mercedes three-pointed star and one louvre. The full-LED headlamps with their iconic eyebrows as daytime running lamps lend it an extremely self-assured and distinctive gaze. On the S-Class Coupé the eyebrows have been further refined with a semi-circular counter-curve. In combination with the standard LED Intelligent Light System, unique headlamps with no fewer than 47 Swarovski crystals are available. 17 angular crystals form the flare-shaped daytime running lamps, with 30 round-shaped crystals making up the turn indicator lamps.

The side profile is defined by the dome-shaped stretched roofline and the frameless doors. An elegant 3D continuous chrome frame surrounds the glass areas that are uninterrupted by B-pillars. This underscores the typical Mercedes-Benz coupé look. A muscle above the rear axle extending from the side wall generates a sense of lightness and dynamic spirit even at a standstill. The positively arched surfaces and lines of the side walls flow into the rear end with a dramatic tapered effect. The rear end, with its surfaces, broad shoulders and distinctive character lines, rounds off the emotive overall appearance. Moving the number plate to the lower part of the rear bumper is a particularly striking modification. It allows the boot lid to be made especially sleek in this area. The three-pointed star is, so to say, free-standing and can thus be made more prominent for greater effect. In addition, it pivots outwards in order to locate the reversing camera and the optional 360° camera in an elegantly functional manner. The arrangement of the LEDs in two horizontal rows in the twopiece tail lamps reveals cutting-edge technology and underscores the sporty character of the vehicle rear, careful attention to detail and the car’s premium value. Form and function fuse in a perfect unity. Part of each light cluster is located in the wing, the other in the boot lid. This characteristic arrangement makes the vehicle highly recognisable by night, too. The two-part rear bumper underscores the sportiness indicated by the front design. The diffusor, painted in high-sheen black, meets in equal measure the requirements made by aerodynamics and by design. Below it there is, as in the front bumper, a horizontal wing in silver look. Integrated in the diffusor are the premium-quality tailpipes. The S-Class Coupé features a panoramic roof extending over two-thirds of the entire vehicle roof; with a surface area of around 1.32 m2, it appears almost 150 percent larger than on its predecessor. MAGIC SKY CONTROL makes it possible to switch the transparency of the roof at the push of a button, from light to dark. When light, the roof is almost completely transparent and allows an open-air experience, even in the coldest weather. When dark, light transmission i.e. the proportion of outside light that is allowed through into the interior, is reduced to less than 1% and thus effectively diminishes heating up of the vehicle. In addition, it is possible to shade the interior completely by means of a roller blind.

The interior: modern luxury as avant-garde design The interior design of the new S-Class Coupé is an expression of the Mercedes-Benz design idiom – sensual purity. An enthralling combination of sculptural sensuous volume elements and components, and the clear geometry of its basic architecture create an avant-garde design idiom. A high-class appeal, quality workmanship and exceptional touch and feel are a treat for the passengers’ senses, so that the car’s interior represents the highest level of “modern luxury”. The S-Class Coupé’s dashboard fascinates with its spectacular architecture, giving rise to a vehicle of unique character in the upper coupé segment. The dashboard is divided into a very clear top-layer section with an expansive “wrap-around” effect extending to the doors, and an extremely low, sculptural “floating” lower section. This striking architecture was made possible by repositioning the airbag to a completely new low location. This concept enables the large, two-part wide-screen format TFT display to be placed in a prominent “hovering” position in front of this trim surface. In addition, it is stylishly highlighted with an ambience lighting corona. Under the display, the sporty elevated centre console extends to the vehicle rear. All lids and armrests are lavishly covered in leather. The new “Super Sport” steering wheel impresses with its powerful, galvanised spokes, which create maximum depth for the steering wheel, as if they flowed out from the steering column. The use of the finest materials, surfaces, colour combinations and seam designs contributes towards achieving a truly exclusive car interior. Air vents, switches, belt extender rosette and trim elements are in electroplated “Silver Shadow”. This gives the trim elements a particularly high value appeal and enhances the three-dimensional effect of their surfaces. In front of the armrest, the touchpad (optional) can be found, with its black high-sheen surface and chrome-look surround. As on a smartphone, the touchpad allows all the head-unit functions to be

58 EXCLUSIVE Magazine

operated using finger gestures. The touchpad also permits letters, numbers and special characters to be entered in handwriting - in any of the head unit’s languages. Diverse controls, e.g. for the multi-media system, are arrayed as keys in a semicircle in front of the central control element. Both the front and the rear seats have a pronounced sporty character, the two rear seats are designed as individual seats. The Exclusive package optionally includes seats in Exclusive nappa designo leather with a striking diamond backstitching pattern on backrests and seating surfaces. The front-seat seatbelts are integrated in the rear side panelling without interrupting the waistline when the windows are open; seatbelt extenders make them easily accessible for the seat occupants. There is a fluid transition between the doors and the rear side panelling, emphasising the vehicle’s quality. Here too, surfaces and controls are masterfully executed in top-quality materials; the configuration with the Burmester® surround sound system and Burmester® High-End 3D surround sound system offers a special highlight in form and function. New interior colours such as Bengal red, saddle brown and porcelain allow individualisation of the interior. The standard ambient lighting with several settings allows the customer to choose from seven lighting moods.

The ESSENTIAL Costa del Sol website - www.simplymedia-group.com


The optional head-up display brings important information directly into the driver’s field of vision, presenting it on the windscreen to ensure less distraction from the traffic situation. The system informs about vehicle speed, speed limits, navigation instructions and driving assistance system messages.

Less distraction: head-up display

The technical basis for this system is a specular optics system and a full-colour display module with a resolution of 480 x 240 pixels, operating with high-power LEDs. They project the virtual image, which measures around 21 x 7 centimetres, into the driver’s field of vision where it appears to float around two metres away above the bonnet. The resolution of more than 60 pixels per degree of viewing angle ensures a needlesharp image. A special light sensor located near the top edge of the roof automatically adjusts the brightness of the head-up display to the exterior lighting conditions.

Lower transversal forces: active curve tilting function

A long tradition: large coupés from Mercedes-Benz

MAGIC BODY CONTROL, the first “suspension with eyes”, had its world première in the S-Class. With the curve tilting function, the Coupé introduces a further world first for series-production cars: The curve tilting function makes the Coupé lean into bends in a manner similar to a motorcyclist or skier. The lateral acceleration acting upon occupants is reduced in a way akin to when driving in a steep curve, and passengers sit more firmly. On country roads in particular, the new curve tilting function enhances motoring enjoyment and comfort. The object is not to reach higher speeds, but to produce a more pleasant motoring experience.

The history of the large post-war Mercedes coupés dates back to the year 1952, when Mercedes-Benz launched the legendary 300 S Coupé - a “car for the world’s elite” as the automotive press of the time judged. It was followed in 1956 by the 220 S Coupé of the W180 model series, which created a sensation in particular due to its self-supporting pontoon body. From 1961 to 1971, the elegant Coupé of model series W111/W112 enthralled no fewer than 29,918 highly discerning customers, who were able to choose between the Type 220 SEb Coupé six-cylinder models and the Type 280 SE 3.5 Coupé eight-cylinder models.

The MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, optionally available for the S 500 Coupé includes, apart from the Active Body Control (ABC) and ROAD SURFACE SCAN functions, the new curve tilting function. With Active Body Control the suspension struts are equipped with hydraulic cylinders (so-called plungers), in order to adjust the force in each strut individually.

The SEC coupés of model series C 216, which remained in the programme of the Stuttgart-based automotive brand for ten years and of which over 74,000 were sold, were based on the S-Class of 1981. In 1992, the successor model (model series C 140) was presented at the Geneva Motor Show, also featuring for the first time as an S 600 Coupé with a 394 hp 12-cylinder engine. It was to be the car in which the Electronic Stability Program ESP® had its world première in 1995. Later on this coupé was renamed “CLClass”. Another forefather of the new S-Class Coupé celebrated its world première under this name in March 1999. With pioneering innovations such as active ABC suspension (Active Body Control) and bi-xenon headlamps, this two-door car set new standards.

Depending on the curve driven, the curve tilting function shifts the base point of each individual strut. This allows the vehicle to incline automatically and continuously in fractions of a second and to angles of up to 2.5 degrees in – depending on the road angle and vehicle speed. The innovative suspension system detects curves using both a stereo camera behind the windscreen, registering the curvature of the road up to 15 metres ahead, and an additional transversal acceleration sensor. The curve tilting function can be selected as one of three drive modes using the ABC switch; it is active in the speed range from 30 to 180 km/h. Emotive-sporty sound: exhaust system with flaps The emotive sound of the exhaust system makes a decisive contribution to the sporty driving experience. The deeper sound components ensure a fuller, sportier sound. In the transversally positioned rear silencer of the twin-pipe exhaust system, there are two flaps that can be opened and closed pneumatically depending on the engine speed. When the flaps are open, the exhaust gases are conducted through the rear silencer along a different path so that the vehicle sound becomes more powerful. The switching point of the flaps depends upon the drive programme selected – in the S programme the flaps open earlier than in the E programme. As soon as the S-Class Coupé engine starts, the power of its sound can be heard.

Supreme exclusivity and sophisticated design combined with trend-setting state-of-the-art technology in the last CL-Class (2006) This luxury coupé opened up a new dimension of vehicle safety with the introduction of PRE-SAFE® brakes.

RÉMY MARTIN COGNAC This established Cognac house has been around since 1724, for nearly 300 years, producing exquisite Fine Champagne Cognac, which is the category of highest quality in cognac production. With products such as its famous blend Louis XIII, the cognac house with the black centaur logo on its bottles has found international acclaim and saw an exciting history of family feuds, mergers and in recent years a boom in US popular culture. Today, Rémy Martin is part of the Rémy Cointreau group, a powerful company with various luxury products in their range and a large international distribution network.

LOUIS XIII

A replica of the original flask discovered on the site of the battle of Jarnac, the LOUIS XIII decanter is an icon at the four corners of the world. Each decanter is individually numbered. The paradox of fire and water lies in the taste of Louis XIII, one born of the rare fruit from the gently undulating landscape of the Grande Champagne terroir, the single chosen growth area of Louis XIII. The majestic mahogany glints that dance in the glass are a pleasure to the eye. The bouquet is a multitude of aromas, resulting in a dense harmony of flowers, fruits and spices. Jasmine mingles with passion fruit, in a blended flirtation with ginger and nutmeg. Roses and violets entertain fig and prune that in turn perform melodiously with sandalwood and honey. Louis XIII magically renders a voluptuous taste of perfection to be savoured unashamedly in a state of supreme pleasure. A suggestion of ultimate extravagance...

~ a celebration of the moment ~ Louis XIII defies understanding. Radiant and rare, it rise above a mundanely, ordinary, everyday life. Whilst most count their lives in years Louis XIII counts in centuries. With its grace, refinement and taste, the mastery of Louis XIII throughout the ages has always been a tireless pursuit of excellence. Louis XIII is acclaimed as being the taste reference for cognac. Richly woven with history and steeped in family tradition, Louis XIII is an enigma to all aesthetes and a symphony of exceptional charm and amazement. It is truly a gift of nature and offers the ultimate precious moment in life.

~ a moment of history ~ Louis XIII is preserved in an exquisite crystal decanter, the faithful reproduction of a Renaissance original found in 1850 on the site of a 16th-century battle near Cognac. Richly decorated with fleurs de lys, the symbol of French royalty, it evokes the sublime spirit of the elixir within. Each handcrafted decanter contains a unique blend of 1200 of Remy Martin’s rarest and oldest eaux-de-vie. The sheer luxury

and intensity of flavours, natured by three generations of cellar masters, linger on the palate for over an hour.

~ a moment of dedication ~ Louis XIII embodies and encompasses every notion of emotion from passion to patience. For over 100 years a multitude of talent has dedicated incalculable time in the search for perfection. The vineyard owners of Grande Champagne dedicate their lives to the art of making cognac. The distillers feel they have achieved perfection only when Remy Martin selects their eaux de vie for Louis XIII.

~ a moment of grace ~ Louis XIII resonates with a moment of grace: notes of a great symphony, the delicate movements of a ballet, the stunning harmony of a great painting. Louis XIII manages to combine such a variety of experiences. It has in fact developed its own world of elegance. A gentle curve of perfectly crafted crystal in the hand, the flow of nectar, 100 years in the making, and the taste of a lifetime all belong to the graceful universe of Louis XIII.

WORLD CLASS Montegrappa’s Icons Pens celebrate notable figures in the fields of sport, culture and entertainment. Previous Icons include Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Ayrton Senna. 2014 is the year in which Brazil will host the FIFA World CupTM. It is thus a pleasure for Montegrappa to celebrate the Brazilian footballer who changed the game for all-time: Pelé. Unveiling the remarkable pens will be a viral video, produced by Wendell Marinho da Silva, that tells the story of the world’s greatest footballer from humble origins to global reverence. Shot in part in Paris, with Pelé himself, the miraculous moves, the phenomenal victories, the adoring crowds: images, music and narration will create a visual experience that celebrates Montegrappa’s homage to one of the most highly-regarded sportsmen the world has ever seen. Two designs have been created for the Pelé Icons Pen Limited Edition. The Heritage features models with solid gold or solid silver trim. The top of the cap is shaped to represent a football, atop a crown that reads around its circumference ‘All Hail The King’. The colours of the Brazilian flag form the surface of the cap in yellow, with green surrounding the crown. Inspired by the original championship trophy, the spring-loaded clip features cabochons on each side. The barrel of the Heritage version is finished in guilloché under translucent blue enamel to create the impression of Pelé’s familiar shorts, complete with a ‘notch’ at the bottom. The barrel’s blind cap matches his socks, finished with green-and-yellow stripes. At the nib end, the surround is etched with Pelé’s signature and the dates of 1958-1962-1970, the years Pelé won his three FIFA World CupsTM. Engraved in the nib is the classic image of Pelé’s ‘bicycle kick’, while the opposite end of the barrel is engraved with the individual serial number. The Heritage solid silver trim edition consists of 1283 fountain pens and 1283 rollerball pens representing the number of goals scored in his entire career, while the gold edition is limited to 10 fountain pens and 10 roller balls, signifying his jersey number. Made of black resin, the P10 Edition features silver trims, with the top inspired by the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the colours of Brazil filled in with enamel. The P10’s clip is a sceptre, to represent ‘The King of Football’, with a miniature football containing a sapphire at its top. The legend, ‘The King of Football’, is engraved around cap, with Pelé’s signature on the side of the cap in white. Blue, green and yellow bands surround the blind cap, while the nib features an engraving of Pelé’s ‘bicycle kick’. Series numbering is engraved on the end of the barrel, identifying the P10 as one of 1940 pieces in total in fountain pen, rollerball or ballpoint, representing the year of Pelé’s birth. The P-10 edition also will be offered in an exclusive version consisting of 10 fountain pens and 10 Irollerballs with solid 18k gold trim. TALIA

Azimut 77S, the new model in the S Collection by Azimut Yachts, is making its world debut at the autumn 2014 Cannes boat show. With four boats already sold even before its launch, the 77S sets the new standard for sport boats. Naturally, it is Made in Italy.

Azimut 77S, the new model in the S Collection by Azimut Yachts, is making its world debut at the autumn 2014 Cannes boat show. With four boats already sold even before its launch, the 77S sets the new standard for sport boats. Naturally, it is Made in Italy. Four boats sold in pre-launch: the Azimut 77S seems to have already taken the road to success in the wake of his younger brother Azimut 55S, the best-selling of which, two years after the launch, were produced as many as 40 units. The yacht embodies that special synthesis of stylistic innovation, technology, and functionality found in all the Italian boatyard’s latest models. The pivoting stern platform or maximum flexibility, the wavepiercing vertical bow – for the first time introduced with the Azimut 55S - the single large deckhouse window, the glazed roof, superior performance, and enhanced fuel efficiency thanks to three engine configuration coupled with Volvo Penta IPS transmission are just some of the main features. The most striking quality of this new jewel in the Azimut Yachts S Collection is its streamlined silhouette designed by Stefano Righini. The furnishings and interiors by Carlo Galeazzi are the ultimate in style, with the polished Zebrano wood and hand-sewn leather rendering them breathtakingly precious. There is no doubt about it, Azimut 77S is beautiful. Azimut 77S is also extremely functional, light-filled, and spacious. The salon and dining area are an explosion of natural light coming from the large lateral windows, the nearly three-metre wide glazed entry doors,

the bow windshield, and most of all from the glazed roof. Azimut 77S is literally full of surprises. The crew area is below deck to the stern. It includes two cabins and a bathroom with separate shower, accommodating up to three crew members. The owner cabin is at full-beam amidships and is a real spatial tour de force. The VIP cabin to the extreme bow is also spectacular, as are the two lateral cabins, obviously each with its own bathroom. Triumph of space on the sundeck too with and a large sunpad and a pilot station. The innovative features of the Azimut 77S just keep coming, including the engine room. Instead of the more traditional two engines set up, the Azimut 77S is equipped with three Volvo Penta 900 HP Diesel engines, each with IPS transmission. The avant-garde solution means that the engine room is better organised and takes up less space. It also provides for maximum ease of handling and steering and ensures outstanding performance coupled with greater fuel efficiency. This model also has a specially designed keel for superior performance with a maximum speed of more than 36 knots and increased fuel efficiency of approximately 350 l/h at the cruising speed of 32 knots. The new 77S joins the other upcoming season offerings - the Azimut Grande 95RPH and the Azimut 50 Fly – debuting at the September 2014 boat show in Cannes. The yacht embodies beauty and sportiness, further incontrovertible proof of Azimut Yachts’ role as “ambassador of Made in Italy boating worldwide”.

OUR SERVICES:

FIRST FOR OPPORTUNITIES

Sunsearch Homes aim to offer the most interesting opportunities available on the market today using our extensive network of local contacts such as; estate agents, private owners, banks & promoters.

The general Marbella and surrounding areas are now fully consolidated with some locations demanding a premium with properties in short supply, because of this there is very little prime development land left. As a result, many of the properties offered for re-sale require either full refurbishment or extensive upgrading and, in many cases, require demolition. In the current market conditions, both end users and investors can find opportunities to purchase an older property in first class locations.

Working with a well-established group of professionals we are able to assist you through every step of the buying process. Can’t find that perfect house? Don’t worry. With our large network of partners we can help you find the most suitable architect, and professional contractors.

OUR VISION Sunsearch Homes has an experienced team in place to help you through the sometimes difficult time of buying a home.

IRRESISTABLE REFINEMENT Using her past experience and aristocratic upbringing she has created a timeless style. Princess Bianca grew up in the family residence in Austria. A picturesque castle, called Trofeiach. Travel was part of her upbringing and the designer’s travels started at a young age, when she moved with her family to Canada, the USA, Lebanon, and finally Iran, each move enabled the designer to gain knowledge and understanding of these diverse influences through their architecture and culture. Princess Bianca later settled in the Jet-set resort of Marbella, where she married Prince Heinrich von Hanau, from the Hessen dynasty. Her time has hereon been spent between numerous metropolitan cities and resorts and at some of the most magnificent homes worldwide. These experiences have marked Princess Bianca von Hanau’s decorative style as a combination of luxury touched with her with her innate sense of sophistication and old aristocratic glamour and refinement Princess Bianca takes great care to keep up with the newest advances in interior design to create a home which is defined by comfort and innovation a fusion of “old and new”- with modern styles blended skilfully with antiques.

The ESSENTIAL Costa del Sol website - www.simplymedia-group.com


Nestled into the mountainside on the Road to Ronda just north of the town of San Pedro and the beaches, reminiscent of the traditional white pueblos is Monte Mayor, a haven of peace and beauty with spectacular views across the mountains, south to the Rock of Gibraltar and on clear days with the coast of Africa and the Rif Mountains shimmering on the horizon. Each property in Monte Mayor is unique but all echo the ancient charm of Andalusia, featuring terracotta floors, hand painted tiles, antique iron railings and gates, wooden vaulted ceilings, antique Ronda front doors, log burning fireplaces, and many other charming authentic Andalusian artistic features. These thoroughly charming brand new townhouses are part of a compact, classically Andalucian rustic-style development built on a south/south-west-facing mountainside.

Accessed from a cobbled street via its own private gated pathway, the townhouse’s living areas are distributed across 3 levels. The upper entry level consists of a reception hall, and a terrace from which the views of the surrounding countryside, mountains, a river valley and the Mediterranean Sea are nothing short of spectacular. Within the 3 bedroom townhouses an additional guest bedroom is also based on this level. The next level down is home to a generously proportioned living room with its own fireplace and patio door access out to a very large square terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining and relaxing and has exceptional country, river and sea views. This level is completed by a large fully-fitted and equipped family kitchen with a separate utility room and a dining area. The lower level of the property features 2 further bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite.
