The Icona Vulcano is a one-off supercar that blew the doors off the Shanghai Auto Show this week. This 900-horsepower V12 is the brain child of famed Ferrari engine master Claudio Lombardi and Icona designer Samuel Chuffart Design, combining raw Italian power with the most advanced auto technologies on the planet.
No need to decide between the camper or the boat: the Sealander is both. This German-designed amphibious mini-camper is light enough to be towed behind your car and offers the option of camping beside the lake or floating on it. Simply mount an outboard motor to the stern and the Sealander is ready for your voyage
For its 50th birthday, Lamborghini is building an Anniversary Edition Aventador. The 720-horse LP720-4 50 rips 0-62 in under 3 seconds & boasts a top speed of 217MPH, a slight bump up perhaps due to the new carbon fiber aero kit that’s 50% more efficient than before. The car will be officially unveiled next week at the Shanghai Motor Show where we hope they’ll tell us that yellow is not the only option.
With design elements and decor borrowed from yachts of the ocean-going variety, Airstream’s new 28’ Land Yacht camper is pretty much a luxury liner on wheels that offers floor-to-ceiling woodgrain and nautical trimmings inside its shining, metal exterior.
40 years ago, iconic Italian cycle brand Moto Guzzi won the contract to produce fleet bikes for the California Highway Patrol. It was an unprecedented honor for a foreign brand; a deal that helped Guzzi gain prominence in the US market. Their 2014 California 1400 pay homage to the bike’s legendary style & includes the latest in Guzzi technology. It’s available in a Custom or dressed Touring version, neither of which look at all like a cop bike.
Yet another sign that you’re getting old: Hot Wheels has released a Retro Entertainment collection, memorializing vehicles from your favorite childhood shows & movies. Kitt from Knight Rider, the A-Team van, Magnum P.I.’s Ferrari. The DeLorean from Back To The Future, and many more.
Check this video if you didn’t see it during the Superblowout yesterday. It’s an ad for the new Maserati. Due for official release at the Shanghai Auto Show in April, images of the new Maserati Ghibli hit the internet early. Happens every time. The new mid-size sedan looks like a scaled-down version of its big brother the Quattroporte, with engine offerings that include a 3-liter turbo-diesel and 404-horse V6 paired with an 8-speed automatic tranny. It will be available with an optional Q4 AWD system while rumors of a forthcoming V8 & Twin-turbo V8 are unconfirmed.
If it looks like a Lotus to you, that’s because the all carbon fiber body on Detroit Electric’s SP:01 is modeled after the Lotus Exige. It was Lotus after all who helped revive this unique American car company. DE is calling the SP:01 the fastest production electric car ever made. Combine the car’s tight 90-inch wheelbase & manual 4-speed tranny with a top speed of 155MPH and you’ll think you’re driving a real racecar not a responsible little EV.
Yes, Porsche really made a plug-in hybrid Panamera but fear not, the new S E-Hybrid is not a Prius in a Porsche package. The powertrain combines a V6 bi-turbo gas engine with a 95 horsepower electric motor for 416 total horses. You can do your happy little eco-driving burning electrons-only at 80mph for about 20 miles, but when you really want to move, the combined battery+engine mode will do 0-60 in 5.5 and hit a top speed of 165.
We checked with some experts and it’s confirmed: this is a motorcycle. As you can plainly see, the guys at Birmingham, Alabama’s Confederate motorcycles are playing by their own rules when it comes to bike design. They’ll only make 7 of these big-bore V-twin R135 Wraith Combat models, so if you think you’d know what to do with this thing, you better jump in line.
