Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by, the year is coming quickly to an end – we hope your enjoying your holiday season. There’s not too much in golf news as of late that doesn’t involve Tiger – but I did manage to find an interesting new golf cart launched in Europe worth posting.
It is called the Garia and it looks quite classy. Their website is pretty cool as well (note: the site may be down), although I was disappointed to see that it doesn’t state a very important detail – how fast it goes. Regardless, it would be quite the retirement vehicle if I do say so myself. Here’s what they have to say about it:
“Innovative thinking and quality craftsmanship make The Garia the only golf car in the world created with a meticulous attention to design and luxury. The result is a truly unique golf car that is guaranteed to give you an exceptional driving experience.
The Garia features an in-built refrigerator, hand-stitched seats, and an exclusive personalization program where you can choose to have The Garia painted in your favorite color or matched to your other cars. There is no doubt that you will get the most desirable golf car ever created.
Built to the highest standards of the automotive industry The Garia features a double wishbone front suspension similar to those found in sports cars and inspired by Formula 1 cars. The drive train is built by an Italian company that also produces Ducati gearboxes. The aluminum profiles in the frame are made by the same company that supplies aluminum profiles to Aston Martin, Jaguar and Volvo. Hydraulic brakes on all four wheels with discs in the front and drums at the rear. The Garia is manufactured at the Valmet Automotive factory in Finland, manufacturer of the Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster.
Designed by Danish designer Anders Lynge, The Garia follows the renowned Scandinavian tradition of clear-cut and classic lines combined with functionality. The Garia Golf Car is a complete reinvention of the traditional golf car. Unsurpassed in terms of luxury, design and quality, The Garia sets new standards for the golf car industry.”
