McLaren Senna just got an upgrade option that makes it look absolutely stunning. The hypercar gets a whole new build with carbon fiber, and takes its sweet time dressing up. The carbon fiber build takes about a 1000 hours to produce, that nice solar detailing takes about 250 hours. So yeah, it’s not just some quick paintjob to cook up a new look.
Warhawk is the first motorcycle to be built with the Curtiss marque in a hundred years. The name is a nod to Glenn Curtiss, the inventor of the first American V-Twin motorcycle. This massive machine is built on an aluminum frame that sits on Michelin tires. Power comes from an air cooled 2200cc V-Twin mated to a five-speed stacked gearbox.
Nissan has its heart set on tackling the snow, with the all new 370Zki Roadster concept (pronounced unsurprisingly as 370 Ski). Built off the stock 370Z, the ‘roadster’ still got its powerful 332 hp engine. Of course, it requires more work than stripping out wheels and slapping on skis. Nissan partnered with American Track Truck to get this rear-wheel powered snowmobile ready for show.
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.
