bow.berlin, a jewelry and fashion boutique in Berlin West, has the interiors to mesmerize. The shop interiors mostly are rough brick surfaces one would expect to see inside old railway structures, but the somewhat humble interiors have been given a facelift with a generous use of lights and a very clever, if unconventional, use of automobile tires. Seriously, what do these tires have to do with a high-end boutique? Except making it look totally amazing, that is.
A Ferrari isn’t just a car, we’d call each of those a masterpiece. So good, you want to keep the prancing horse pampered even if you have a ton of money. But something like this would probably be just too painful. From the looks of it, the table has been made from a crashed, crushed Ferrari reduced to being the curious innards of a transparent-top table. Probably a great conversation starter, but actually a very morbid display.
Nintendo commissioned West Coast Customs to create life size replicas of two Mario Kart cars, to go along the December 4 launch of Mario Kart 7. Both cars are battery powered, built as replicas of the classic Mario Standard kart, with its glider attachment, and the Luigi Bumble V kart, with a rear propeller for underwater navigation. Of course, these cars won’t quite do the tricks as the ones in the game, but owning these would be pretty cool.
Going the way of Steampunk is a test of creativity and skill. Of course, you could just cover something in brass, cogs and gears, or you could make something as impressive as Alan Rorie‘s Nautilus inspired car. The car itself is pretty cool, but it is the aperture door that our eyes focus on. The door of the car opens with an RFID key and a controller on the inside takes care of the mechanical brass aperture for the door.
Built with a strong “inspiration” from Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the Millenio concept by designer Marko Petrovic is a Ferrari designed for the future. The concept car is a lightweight electric vehicle with a very prominent front fascia. Millenio concept is powered by two powerful electric motors to maintain the power and speed you’d expect from a Ferrari.
The prancing horse shows itself in full majesty in the Ferrari Aliante Concept by designer Arunkumar Shanmugam, Magnus Grettve and Daniel Soriano. Granted, it is an independent concept, but it looks too damn beautiful to not be a Ferrari. Aliante has a curvaceous body, exaggerated fender, and super attractive looks. Well, not the traditional Ferrari style, but still one design that can proudly carry the name.
The Bugatti Veyron is all sold out, but the targa top version of the car is still available for those who have enough money. The supercar manufacturer has come up with three new looks for the Grand Sport, and will be showcasing them at the Dubai International Motor Show. You know, the place where people will lap up exclusives like these.
Designer Mikhail Smolyanov designed this Steampunk motorcycle by getting inspiration from racing cars of the ’20s. Named ARX-4, the concept motorcycle is powered by a V8 that powers the wheels directly by means of a drive shaft, rather than making use of the conventional chain link or belt drive.
