Lamborghini Asterion

The Paris Motor Show has officially kicked off and this morning saw the unveiling of one of the most anticipated hybrid cars of the show  - the all new Lamborghini Asterion hybrid.

This is the Italian automakers first ever hybrid car, so naturally they went al out with it. From design to production, this car truly is a stunner. And we’re not just talking about how it looks.

Although its looks is definitely worth a mention. This car is truly breathtakingly beautiful. In typical Lamborghini design style, the Asterion glistens under the lights on stage at the Paris Motor Show.

The blue colour is also a perfect colour for this car. It’s eye catching and dramatic without being too overbearing. (more…)

Jay Leno McLaren P1

So, what would you do if you are the happy, proud and no doubt protective owner of an all new McLaren P1? You would want to protect it so it stays in its prestine condition for the rest of eternity, am I right?

Of course.

Well, that is what Jay Leno – former talk show host and swoon worthy car collector – did immediately when he got his McLaren P1 (because obviously Jay Leno owns a brand new McLaren P1…)

Jealousy aside, Jay invite chis viewers of his popular YouTube channel, Jay Leno’s Garage, to come with and witness as his latest addition to his ever growing car collection gets wrapped in a protective coating that will keep it looking spiff and spam for years to come – perhaps not for the rest of eternity, but, close enough.

BMW i8 vs Corvette Stingray

Ah, a classic drag race – there really is few things in life that give us the thrill of watching two, powerful sports cars go head to head in a bid to see who is the most powerful and of course, fastest. However, what happens if you pit a more traditional sports car against it’s modern counterpart?

Well this is what we’re super excited to find out.

YouTube channel, The Fast Lane Car, recently pitted a classic, 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray against the all new, futuristic BMW i8 – and of course, as we all know, the BMW i8 is a hybrid electric car. So will it have the potential to destroy a full on, classic sports car such as the Stingray? (more…)

Ferrari never ceases to amaze us. There is just something about this legendary automaker that makes us go weak at the knees – and we’re pretty sure they know that they have this effect on a lot of people.

The latest creation to come out of the Ferrari garage is undoubtedly one of their finest. In terms of design, looks and power, the Ferrari 458 Special A is absolutely gorgeous – and finally t has been revealed in all it’s Italian glory.

After leaked images of the car appeared all over the internet this past week, Ferrari decided that it was time the world was officially introduced to their new baby (well, really they didn’t have a choice after it spread like wildfire through the internet).

The other day we reported on Lexus’ latest collaboration with music producer/singer/automotive designer Will.I.Am in ann effort to promote their new NX crossover.

As you may know, Will.I.Am has tried his hand at designing custom cars in the past – some of which resulted in extremely strange and rather weird hybrid versions of well know cars.

However, as Lexus promoted their new NX, so did Will.i.Am and, amidst wild speculation as to what the end result would look like, we are surprised to say that the “extremely stylised version’ of the NX crossover is actually not bad at all. In fact, we’ll go as far as to say that this car has that ‘boom-boom pow’.

Revealed last night at Paris Fashion Week, Will.i.Am looked rather satisfied with his creation as he revealed it to  handful of cheering fans.  (more…)

Local Motors 3D printed car

There is absolutely no doubt about the fact that 3D printing is taking over the world. It is one of the most revolutionary inventions of our time and has captured the attention and imagination of many across the globe.

Just the thought of physically and quickly being able to print a three dimensional object in the comfort of your home (if you so wish) is rather intriguing.

That’s why so many people have started experimenting with 3D printing and seeing how far they can push the boundaries with this new technology. One such company that wasn’t afraid of taking things to the next level, is a company called Local Motors. In fact, they dreamt so big, that actually 3D printed a car. For reals.

I mean, we have seen some pretty out there thing seeing printed in 3D – from prosthetic limbs to weapons and guns (that actually work) – there seems to be no end to the imagination of those capable of 3D printing.

Local Motors, however, is the first company we’ve heard of that actually decided to print a full size, drivable car. (more…)

stunt driver McComas

Whether its in an action film, super hero movie or suspenseful thriller, the chances are when you watch a bog budget Hollywood movie, you’ll see some kind of stunts being performed. And when these stunts involve cars, we get really excited.

Stuntmen and more specifically stunt drivers have the scariest, most dangerous and no doubt most exhilarating fun jobs in Hollywood – or at least we think so.

They get to drive around (usually very fast) in super cool cars and then crash the, flip them or spin them in manoeuvres we can only dream of. (more…)

In an effort to promote their all new, upcoming crossover – the NX – Lexus has teamed up with on of the planet’s quirkiest personalities to design a one-off, custom version of the car. All in the hopes of capturing the attention of the world.

Lexus has enlisted the help of music producer-turned-entrepreneur Will.i.am to design a custom NX of their new crossover model.

As the company has said themselves, the car designed by the hands of Will.i.am, will be an “extremely stylised version”of the actual model – so don’t get a fright when you see it for the first time and think that Lexus has turned a new (quirky) leaf.

Will.i.am is also no stranger to the automotive industry, or designing his own, uhm, different cars.  (more…)
