Bookshelves don’t get more glamorous than this one in the Dutch Mountain underground villa. Dutch design studio Denieuwegeneratie decided to give the underground villa a really cool bookshelf in the shape of a vintage Jaguar placed upright against a wall. This has to be amongst the best looking bookshelf/ storage space for a home.
Waiting for its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the F12 Berlinetta is the fastest Ferrari to date. Getting its power from a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V12 engine that pumps out 740hp, top available torque being 690Nm. Now these are super impressive numbers by any standard, and they translate into performance very well. The F12 roars from zero to 100 kmh in just 3.1 seconds.
What once used to be a humble 1979 Ford Falcon, is now a tank. And tank way more powerful than any of those combat vehicles, if you look at it with a philosophical eye. There isn’t much left of the fusion after the addition of the welded frame.
At the Geneva Motor Show, Pininfarina intends to show its latest concept, the Cambiano. As expected from Pininfarina, the concept is stunning in all its futuristic look glory. The driver side has just one door in coupe like styling, the passenger side on the other hand, has two suicide doors to make enough room for passengers to enter and exit the comfortable white leather seats of the concept.
Land Rover has taken the top off Range Rover Evoque for the Geneva Motor Show. The Evoque crossover is already well regarded, but dropping the top off an SUV and bringing out a convertible does take some well measured ideas. If the convertible concept is actually made, it will run on the same four-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines as the Evoque.
Suzuki Hayabusa doesn’t quite need another engine, but then what self respecting bike could ever refuse getting it on with an F-14 engine? Tony Pandolfo from Orlando, Florida split his Hayabusa, threw out its engine and plowed in an AlliedSignal jet fuel starter (JFS) from an F-14 jet fighter. It doesn’t fly and probably isn’t as fast as the original Hayabusa either, but duuuuuude… fighter jet engine!
Roadster shop made this car, bringing out the classic muscle of the 1970 Dodge Challenger to the modern world. The custom one-off build has extensive body modifications to make it go modern. Power comes from a 528 aluminum Hemi motor that pumps out 775hp and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
Europe is having an especially cold winter this year, and it obviously doesn’t help much if the car heater isn’t working or can’t fend off the cold. A time tested way to fight off the cold would be more than welcome in such scenarios. Pascal Prokop from Mettmenstetten, Switzerland found a way to keep his 1990 Volvo 240 station wagon warm by installing a wood stove right inside his car!
Designer Marc Newson teamed up with Officina Italiana Design of Bergamo, Italy to create the beautiful Riva Aquariva speed boat. The retrotastic boat shows off its flair in faux mahogany and turquoise upholstery. Only 22 of these were built, and as you’d guess, they sold off faster than hot cakes even with a price tag of around $1.5 million.
The invention of the automobile was one huge revolution that greatly shaped the modern world. Stirling Auto A1 from Böhm is a salute to the two geniuses that made the automobile possible. The tiny model car gives a nod to Robert Stirling, the inventor of the Stirling Engine, and Karl Benz, who helped bring in the automobile.
