Equus Bass 770 takes a retro look, which is arguably the best appearance you can take when you want to be a muscle car. It mixes up the fastback retro styling of the old muscle cars with modern technology to create a car that is both, powerful, and with the good looks of the golden age of muscle cars.
Here’s an image of a dismantled Volkswagen Golf Mk2. The car was in production from 1983 to 1992, during which 6.3 million Golf Mk2s were built. Here’s a closer look at the once very popular car, neatly dismantled, with its parts available for view. As a comment on TwistedSifter mentions, the photograph is the work of Hans Hansen, and was captured in 1988.
Meet ‘The Bolt’ a young kid from Keating Supercars who hopes to take on the mightiest in the world and beat them to a pulp. The Bolt hopes to hit a top speed of 340 mph, very near 0.5 times the speed of sound. If that sounds super ambitious, that is because the current record for fastest production car is held by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport that hit 267.81 mph while commanding 1,184 horsepower.
An independent concept by designer Mark Hostler, the very Batmobile like Mercedes SL GTR Concept as a supercar for the 21st century. Trying to live up to its aggressive look and design, the concept has been endowed with race car chassis, race suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, racing tires and a Nismo designed 5.5 liter V8 sourced from the Nissan GTR GT1. Wait… why does the Mercedes have a Nissan engine? Because concept, that’s why.
Cars. Explosions. The words might look like an unfit pair, but they go extremely well together. Just ask the million movies that made cars explode for no good reason. In the same spirit, watch this exploding Chevrolet convertible brought to you by the Slow Mo guys.
Watching Formula 1 racing is quite the treat, but watching it from the eyes of a thermal camera is just the road to trippy land we would hope for. Colors changing on the tires are quite engrossing. We actually might not have watched much of the video except the color changes on the tires. The video is from Force India team riding their VJM06 car at the Monza track. For F1 enthusiasts who recognized that the track isn’t Monza, it looks different because the uploader mirrored the video. Take a look at the VJM06 above, and then hit ahead for another thermal camera video, showing a little car crash at the F1 track.
Modern wheels might have seen improvement, but they have stayed more or less the same since they were invented. Of course, the modern world needs the reinventing of the wheel to suit modern times. One of such designs by Korean manufacturers Hankook, the i-Flex, takes the conventional look and feel out of the tires, making them independent of factors like air, while fusing the wheel and the tire into a single entity.
Audi is walking the road of good looks with the Nanuk Quattro Concept. Audi is taking the Nanuk Quattro Concept to the Frankfurt Motor Show. Dressed well for the occasion, the Nanuk is something of a coupe that can do the heavy work of off-roading. Power comes from a 5.0 Liters V10 that presents the car with 544hp and 377 lb-ft of torque. With all that energy at its disposal, the Nanuk can go from zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds and cap off at a top speed of 189 mph.
We are fans of the stunning looks of the Lamborghini Aventador, we’re even more enamored by someone going the impressive route and crafting a supercar entirely out of paper. Seattle based artist Taras Lesko crafted this full scale Lamborghini Aventador using only paper. The paparecraft supercar has been styled in the looks of a police interceptor and christened with the name Aventador A-E2. Frame of the car is built on thick cardboard for support, then given shape with printed sheets of E2 architectural paper (hence the name).
Built off a Yamaha XVS400 frame, the Bandit9 Atlas motorcycle sure takes some freaky good looks. It is quite the change. Yamaha XVS400 looks good and powerful, but it doesn’t come anywhere near the sheer force that the Atlas exudes. It has a bold look, almost on its way to be a chopper, but probably decided to stay just off the mark. Not a bad decision, considering it looks pretty damn good.
