Resigning from Def Jam doesn’t worry Jay-Z but this one might.

The hip hop mogul’s new Las Vegas club reportedly failed to pass a health and safety inspection leaving his New Year’s Eve plans in disarray.

The boyfriend of R&B singer Beyonce Knowles was due to ring in the New Year at the latest branch of his upscale sports bar, The 40/40 Club, but the L.V. venue’s opening will most probably be delayed after the surprising setback.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton cites a source as saying, “Unless Jay-Z and his team miraculously come up with certain licenses and certificates by Sunday, then they won’t be ablt to go on with their New Year’s Eve party plans.”

And if that happens, then the rapper superstar will be forced to refund all tickets to the club’s grand opening

We’ve seen jet cards in the million-dollar range before but the new $5 million card from Halcyon Jets is causing a stir this holiday season. What do you get for your moeny with the Holiday Dream Card? It entitles you to access to Halycon’s fleet of jets for one-way trips or round-trip travel, for single flights or multiple trips. The press release doesn’t say exactly how long the card is good for but we hope it’s a lifetime use for that price. Other ancillary services that come with the card include your own private aviation specialist and personal concierge to assist with the travel, dining and entertainment plans. Jets in their fleet include Citation jets, Lear jets, Gulfstreams, helicopters and even jumbo jets from Airbus and Boeing.Story

New Vector WX8

November 15, 2007

Gerald Weigert was responsible for the Vector back in the ’70s. There was a limited production run and then financial difficulties during the ’80s and early ’90s. Originally powered by a turbocharged GM V8 in W8 guise, they eventually were fitted with a Lamborghini-sourced V12 in the M12 model. Well Mr. Weigert is at it again with his All-American supercar. Vector Motors sent out a press release announcing their newest offering, the Vector Avtech WX8. A race developed chassis with a bunch of aerospace technology, powered by a big V8. In this case it appears to be a Z06 mill that has been tweaked to produce 600HP, or a whopping 750 with an optional supercharger. Claimed acceleration is right in the middle of the supercar pack with 0-60 mph happening in 3.3 seconds, the quarter in 11.3 sec. at 138 mph, and a top speed of 260-270 MPH, given the proper gearing. Be sure to catch it at the LA Auto Show. Jalopnik.
