The Mazda MX-5 just got itself a facelift, and a little upgrade while it was at it. Mazda recently unveiled the fourth generation MX-5, which will be available in 2015. The car has received some dynamic restyling and upgrade.
The Ferrari F80 Supercar is an independent concept from designer Adriano Raeli. The sweet looking car with an aggressive stance speaks power, and the designer made sure that power did show up in the supercar. Raeli envisions power for the concept car coming from a hybrid drivetrain working with a KERS system and combustion engine.
If there’s one thing the Motoped Survival Bike has got going for it, it’s the clean retro look. Although, to be fair, we would be short selling it if we said that the looks are the only good thing about the bike. It’s a survival bike, built to be used in the inevitable zombie apocalypse, because you can never be too ready for that one.
We love classic cars, and while a gearhead would know every single detail about the classics, most of us would probably not go beyond a faint recognition of the cars. Often, the classics have stories behind them, and may have been way more important to their country of origin, as compared to what we would generally realize.
Classic cars come from an age where cars were a thing of beauty. Designers focused on aesthetics to churn out cars each of which could be a piece of art. That age has gone, and while several of those classic cars may no longer be practical for the road, but their aesthetics still stand. Dave Gartland of Ali Kat is harnessing the beauty of classics from the ‘50s to make gorgeous, one of a kind custom guitars.
BugJuggler the robot is the next big thing that will make circus jugglers look like the noobs that they are. This robot is massive; standing at 70 feet tall; and it’s built for singular purpose, that of juggling cars. The gigantic bot will pick up a car, throw it in the air, and catch it again. We suppose it could do the juggling with any car model that ever existed, but it seems partial to the VW Bug; hence the name.
Everybody knows its bad to text while driving, and yet people somehow totally ignore the warning. In fact, mobile use while driving is now the leading cause of death behind the wheel. In this PSA, Volkswagen shocked movie goers into seeing how bad texting while driving could be.
Unveiled recently at the Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance, MINI Superleggera Vision Concept showed off a sweet new look and refined style. While a concept for the moment, the Vision is a very likely contender for the production line. It is expected that the care will make a production debut in 2016.
Ducati may have taken a minimal design approach to the 2015 Monster 821, but that approach is limited to the motorcycle’s looks. Power has nothing to do with minimalism where the Monster is concerned. The Ducati Monster 821 comes powered with a 112 hp, 821cc twin cylinder Testrastretta engine that does justice to the Monster name. Available in July, the motorcycle is priced between $10,995-$11,495.
Gigantic robot Bumblebee we see in Transformers movies is quite badass, and transforms into a super cool Camaro. Yet, he wouldn’t hold a light to this guy. This one doesn’t have the same badass look, transforms into something that looks like a toy Escalade, and won’t be shooting bad guys with massive cannons.
