Singapore-based Vanda Electrics is trying to make a name for itself, and its parent company Wong Fong Engineering in the automobile space. Vanda is still in its nascent stages, though it is quite ambitious as displayed by the Vanda Dendrobium electric supercar it showed at the Geneva Motor Show.
Photographer John Platt has uploaded photographs of a selection of cars, trucks, and bikes used in Mad Max: Fury Road. The images were captured over three weeks, prior to the shooting of the film.
Russian startup Hoversurf is showing off the Scorpion 3, which they claim will be the first commercially available hoverbike. Scorpion 3 is a fully-manned quadcopter that intends to bring “flying to the masses.” Running on electric power, the vehicle employs quadcopter drone technology and with a motorcycle seat slapped in, it’s all set to be a flying machine.
Those enterprising enough can find ways to play Doom on any number of devices. The game has found quite a few adaptations thanks to enthusiasts. However, running it on a Porsche 911 where the car itself becomes the controller – now that’s a whole different breed.
Ferrari 812 Superfast is the most powerful production car Ferrari has ever built. Its stance, its looks, its speed, its power, its dumb name – all scream Ferrari. The 812 Superfast is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine pushing out 800hp that takes the car from 0 to 60mph in 2.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 211 mph.
Much like James Bond, the cars he drives (or drove) can be quite memorable. A very memorable car is the Lotus Esprit S1, which 007 drove in The Spy Who Loved Me. Apart from its good looks, the car’s submersible skill won quite a few hearts and fired up imagination of the viewers. Bond has since moved to other cars, Lotus apparently, has not – and it does want you to remember it once made a very iconic Bond car, Dammit.
The Renaissance masters have inspired people for centuries, so it’s only natural that artists and creatives would want to build on the work of the masters – or pay homage. Photographer Freddy Fabris wanted to pay homage to the great Renaissance masters, which was a tough job considering the challenges of translating the paintings through photography.
Tesla is pretty much the king in the world of all-electric cars that offer a killer performance. It’s only natural that the reigning monarch be challenged, and Porsche apparently intends to do that with the Mission E Concept.
Aston Martin has unveiled its brand new Vulcan supercar at the Geneva Motor Show. Now that is not just a regular car, it is a thoroughbred packed with top of the line automobile technology that probably well qualifies to demand your allegiance. Aston is going to build only 24 units of this car, each priced in the range of $2.3 million.
Trion, and by association, the Trion Nemesis are both new names in the supercar game. And as things stand, they might as well be here for the long haul. I say that because I’m smitten with its good looks and excellent form. Top of the line model Nemesis N1-RR comes with a humongous 9.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine that has 2000 horses at its command. This motor will be mated to an 8-speed sequential transmission. Working together, the arrangement promises a zero to 60 mph time of 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 290 mph.
