Artist Dresses Ferrari F430 in Leather, Tattoos It

Tattooed Ferrari F430 by Phillipe Pasqua

Artist Philippe Pasqua started off this project with a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. The supercar was first wrapped in cowhide, taking care to cover every nook and crevice of the body, while ensuring the leather followed the curves of the Ferrari as well as it could be. This would in itself be a tricky job, considering the joints, hinges and crevices are not the best friends of a leather coat.

Kawasaki J Concept Is a Bike That Means Business

Kawasaki J Concept Is a Bike That Means Business

Kawasaki has gone all futuristic with its new concept bike, simply named J. Independent designers have long been cooking up concepts like these, but this is probably the first time a major manufacturer has lent weight to the futuristic idea. Kawasaki J Concept has three wheels, two at the front and one big wheel at the rear. Two wheels at the front means that the conventional handlebar gets replaced in favor of two controllers, each individually connected to a wheel.

Ferrari CascoRosso Concept

Eye candy comes well suited when presented in the form of automobile design goodness. Ferrari CascoRosso is an independent design concept by Macedonian designer Dejan Hristov. The name itself is Italian for “red helmet” while the design is homage to the Ferrari 250 GTO, which will celebrate 50 years of its existence in 2014. While the Ferrari 250 GTO obviously influences the concept, the designer also envisions it as a successor to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, allowing the concept to fuse the past, present and future.

The tumbler has a top speed of 38mph, a brand new battery, four link rear suspension, and leather seats. This was up for auction on eBay.

Exploding Cars That Never Saw an Explosion

Exploding Cars That Never Saw an Explosion

Disintegrating by Fabian Oefner

The photographs show some of the best known cars in the world disintegrating and exploding into their component pieces. Yet, there has been no explosion and the cars did not undergo a violence of any sort. What they did go through was the meticulousness and ingenuity of Fabien Oefner. Exploding cars would perhaps yield this scene for a fraction of a second, but they suspended the laws of nature for months, hanging in balance and allowing the photographer to take the images we see here.
