Concept cars are great. Mostly because it is, after all, only a concept and you can really let your imagination go. Not only are concept cars fun to design by designers themselves, but its also great for us car fanatics to see what people come up with and what we can possibly see in the near future.
This latest Aston Martin concept is like something out of a sci-fi film – and it’s awesome.
Called the DP-100, Aston Martin actually teamed up with video game development studio, Polyphony Digital, to come up weigh the idea. And why a video game developer? Well, because the car will actually make its debut in a video game.
Say hello to the latest addition to Gran Turismo 6’s line up! (more…)
Road accidents are no joke. Whether they involve a car or a motorcycle, anyone who has ever been in an accident know how lucky they are to be alive. One man in particular, who can really count himself lucky, is this Russian motorcyclist.
The accident was caught on video by a Russian driver’s dashboard camera.
It was published on YouTube on august 19th and appears to have a July 3oth timestamp. According to various sources, the accident seems to take place on a bridge close to the Russian city of Korolyov.
According to Mashable, they cannot confirm nor deny that the video is, in fact, authentic – but if it turns out to be true, this gentleman can thank his lucky stars and give his guardian angel a pat on the back, because what happens is nothing shy of unbelievable.
We won’t spoil it for you, so check out the video below:
We know that Mercedes-Benz has some big plans with the all new S-Class Maybach. And if this spy video turns out to be the first look at the supposed Maybach, then we are certainly in for a treat when the ultra luxe car finally makes its debut.
The S-Class is expanding in quite a big way. Up until now, there were only two different engine options when it came to the S-Class, but now, Mercedes is introducing an array of new model lines.
The German automaker is adding a new S-Class Coupe to it’s line up as well. This is in addition to the sedan, of course. And soon, the S-Class Coupe will be available in a convertible version too – and we’re sure that will be a big hit with Mercedes fans worldwide. (more…)
Tesla, watch out. There is a new electric kid on the block and it’s all sparkly and new and pretty impressive!
Meet the all new Renovo Coupe – an electric super car that looks to tackle Tesla and their Model S head on. The car was designed by Renovo, and don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of them before.
Renovo is a startup based in the home of all fancy startups, Silicon Valley. Here, the company designed and developed the good-looking Renovo Coupe in secret for nearly 4 years. And finally, the Tesla rival has been unveiled to the public.
First off, the car really is beautiful. WHile it’s electric and certainly very modern, it has a classic, alluring vintage/retro look that definitely makes it stand out in the crowd. Not that said ‘crowd’ is very big – it’s pretty much only the Tesla Model S and the Renovo in it’s class. Although, things might start to look different once Tesla releases their planned electric coupe. (more…)
Chris Harris is back and we for one are really excited to see him testing and pitting cars against each other again.
This time around Chris takes on more of a ‘normal’ car. And when we say normal, we mean non-supercar. While we love watching Lamborghinis and Ferraris in action (although we get insanely jealous) it’s also great to see Chris review everyday cars.
With his unique reviewing style, Chris pits the Volkswagen Golf R against the BMW M235i.
Which car do you think will come out on top? Check out the video below:
Pitting two performance cars together is always fun. And while it might sound like an odd match-up between the Audi S3 Saloon and the Subaru WRX STi, these two cars have more in common than you might think and thus makes it the perfect battle.
RIght off the back, we won’t judge you if you believe the Audi will fair better in this competition. After all, the Audi is more expensive at 33,245 pounds and has the more swanky, luxury interior. Also, Audi has somewhat of a reputation as an upmarket performance car, so naturally many us will feel that the Audi has a step up on the Subaru. (more…)
Lamborghini is still 10 days away from fully unveiling their ‘track-focused’ Huracan Super Trofeo race car, but they know that fans (like us) are frothing to get a glimpse of the modified Huracan that is set to take the track by storm.
So, to satisfy our hunger for the super fast super car, they have released a short teaser, just over 1 minute long, that shows us the Huracan Super Trofeo (LP 610-4) in some of it’s glory. And while it’s not all of it, it will definitely satisfy our craving until August 15th when the car will be officially unveiled at The Quail in Monterey, California. (more…)
One thing that has always fascinated petrol heads (or actually most people in general) is the concept of a ‘hoverboard’ or ‘hover car’. The idea of literally hovering above the ground as a mode of transport is an exciting prospect and one that we have only seen in sci-fi films. Until now that is.
Chris Malloy, an Australian designer based in London, has come up with something called a ‘hoverbike’ – and while it’s not a hovering skateboard or a hovering car, it’s pretty much as close as we’ll get to any ‘hovering’ mode of transport.
The Hoverbike concept is kind of like a cross between a motorbike, a four-wheeler and a drone quad-copter. And it really does look as though it just came off the set of the latest Star Wars film.
The Hoverbike uses spinning rotors on both the front and back side of the machine. These create enough energy for the Hoverbike to actually lift off the ground. (more…)
