This is the world’s most expensive motor home

When you think of a motor home, you can’t help but picture a 80′s style karavaan slowly making its way down to the seaside from up North. However, this motor home (or RV is you will) is nothing like the caravans you see in Hartenbos over December. It’s actually like a moving mansion.

The element Palazzo is the world’s most expensive and most luxurious motor home and has (surprisingly) just been sold to an unmanned owner in the city of lux – Dubai.

This seriously pimped out RV was sold for a whopping $3 million. But once you see what this RV holds both inside and outside you can still try and make sense of the exuberant price tag.

Developed by Marchi Mobile – an Austrian company founded by former trucking mogul Mario Marchi – this RV is the stuff dreams are made of. That is if you dream of luxury motor homes covered in actual gold.  (more…)

Published by on Aug 7th, 2014, No Comments

Bugatti Veyron Successor

We know that when Bugatti does something, the do it right. And that is exactly the case when it comes to the much anticipated successor to the  enigmatic Veyron.

There is no official confirmed date yet for the (yet to be named) Veyron successor, but reports are stating that we can expect to witness the magic in 2016. The automaker has not released a lot of information about the car, but slowly there are trickling more more and more details – and this latest bout of details has got us properly frothing.

According to a report by Autocar, the Veyron’s successor will house the same – albeit updated – engine as the Veyron. and to refresh your memory, that is a 8.0 liter, W16 engine. Some sources also claim that the Veyron’s successor will incorpated hybrid technology, something the existing Veyron lacks, of course.  (more…)

Hennessey planning updated, faster version of Venom GT

Venom F5

It seems that breaking the land speed record isn’t enough for Hennessey and their Venom GT. In fact, the car company has just announced plans for a updated, faster version of the Venom GT.

Talking to Top Gear, Hennessey confirmed the company’s plans to build a Venom GT that would make the existing GT look like small fry. And the name? They plan on calling this beast of a super car the Venom GT F5. We’re thinking the F stands for fast.

The main goal with the Venom GT F5 is to top the top speed of the Venom GT. Hennessey said that they would like to reach a top speed of a whopping 290mph (that’s 466,17 km/h to you and me). To refresh your memory, the top speed that the existing Venom GT reached was 270,4mph (or 435,16) – and with it, they took the land speed record.

Before Hennessey stepped onto the playground, the previous land speed record was held by Bugatti with their Veyron at 269,86mph (434,29km/h).  (more…)

Huracan Super Trofeo

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…)

Jaguar

It’s still just over a month before the all new, 2016 Jaguar XE will be officially unveiled, but the company has decided to let us have a sneak peek at their latest creation.

The Jaguar XE is the latest to come from Jaguar Land Rover and, as expected, it’s absolutely beautiful.

The XE is set to follow in the footsteps of other Jaguars – the XF and the XJ. But besides taking over centre stage, the XE was designed to compete with some stiff competition in the luxury market. The XE looks set to take on the Audi A4, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the BMW 3-Series.

And if this one photo is anything to go by, then we would advice those other car companies to sit up and take note. (more…)

Real life ‘Hoverbike’ could become a reality soon

Published by on Jul 30th, 2014, No Comments

Hoverbike

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…)

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport stretches it’s legs on public road

Sun Valley Road Rally

It might not be the fastest car in the world anymore, after the Hennessey trumped it from the number one spot, but let’s be honest; it is still super exciting to see a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport race down a straight stretch of road, even if it now holds second place.

At the recent Sun Valley Road Rally in Ketchum, Idaho, one of Bugatti’s rarest beauties got to show off it’s skills and power and in the process blow the socks off of everyone attending the event as well as ourselves, because luckily, someone realized that this is moment not to be missed and pulled out the video camera.

The Sun Valley Road Rally effectively turns a stretch of Highway 75, surrounded by trees and beautiful, picturesque mountains, into a high-speed runway where super cars get to show off just h0w ‘super’ they are.

During the event, the road is not open to the public for use (obviously, they risk a collision with a super fast super car) but the event is open to the public to come and watch, with all proceeds being donated to charity. (more…)

Fiat reveals 500L Vans concept

If ever there was a perfect vehicle for a passionate surfer or skater (besides the classic Volkswagen hippie van) then this Fiat concept is it.

Fiat partnered with Vans, the shoe company that is synonymous with everything skating and surfing, to bring us their concept for the ultimate skate/surf car. It features their 500L crossover car with (a lot) of Vans branding and motifs.

The radical concept car was officially unveiled at the Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California.

And while the car would probably be rad for a die-hard surfer/skater dude, fir us non beach or tar loving folk, it just kind of comes off as strange. Howver, the design is sort of cool and definitely gives us a feeling of summer loving.

The entire design of the car is clearly inspired by the Vans lifestyle manifesto: skate/surf or die.  (more…)
