Boxy and burly, Land Rover’s Defender was the perfect platform for Italian design house AZNOM to build-up a totally custom vehicle that looks every bit as tough as it is tech. With upgrades like two-tone matte paint, carbon fiber bumpers and a leather & alcantara interior – this is offroad meets chic. Pro-tuner, Romeo Ferraris, handled motor mods – adding an extra thirty horses - completing the total overhaul of this British classic.
It’s fast and looks like something out of the next James Bond flick. If that’s not reason enough to make you want a piece of this space-age thrillride, consider this – it’s electric. Reaching speeds of up to 65 mph, the Silveira Green Samba produces zero emissions – unless you count screams of joy! As it’s powered by electricity instead of gasoline, it’s clean and quiet. Now your good time doesn’t have an environmental price tag…unlike your bank account.
Everything is Denmark is just cooler: the culture, the history, the nightclubs. And without a doubt, the custom bikes. Copenhagen-based, Wrench Monkees have been at the forefront of the post-modern, custom bike movement for years. Their understated bikes – part powerhouse, part design/soulcraft – are shipped to collectors and fiends worldwide. The Club Black series was made as decoration for a Copenhagen nightclub of the same name. Motorcycles inside a club? Yes…Denmark is just that much cooler.
What started out as a Puch Free Spirit has been reworked into this Boardtrack Racer. Traveling 55mph, the tail-light was salvaged from a ’39 Ford, the gas-tank a reclaimed soda fountain & the kill switch snagged from an old VW. Did I mention the tank is held on with a belt? The guys at 1977Mopeds never cease to amaze. What for most would be a pile of relics has been turned into a sweet ride. If they can’t make this one again, talk to them, I’m sure something equally fantastic is available.
The Chevy Camaro. This was one hot ride in the 80s. Nothing rivaled its style…other than the Firebird. Well, news has it the Pontiac will stay in its grave. On the other hand, slated to roll off the line first quarter 2011 is the Camaro Convertible. This ride has all the features of the coupe, with a little wind in the hair.
Heynsdyk throws a custom-body over the guts of a Porsche 944, lightens the load & gives you the choice of 6 engines. Arresting design with power to boot… this one hits 60 in 6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 155mph. You don’t buy a car like this for racing. It’s more for artistic expression…or should I say, female impression?
It’s no wonder the fat cats at GM kept the company afloat – they were holding out to see this Cadillac pull off the line. The 2011 CTS-V Coupe’s angled exterior is sleek & sexy. But she’s not shallow. Under the hood…an Eaton Supercharger sitting on top of a 6.2-liter V8 engine delivering 556hp. Saucy.
The economy’s in shambles. Big business is tightening the belt. Perks & luxuries are a thing of the past. Nice headlines, eh? Don’t be fooled. Corporate fat cats are still spending the kind of money that makes P-Diddy blush. What better way to “close the deal” than to send a potential client off on a private excursion in a jet with a deck? This isn’t the 50s – a hooker and a smile won’t bring in a 9-figure deal anymore.
Ecosse’s Heretic makes Harley Davidson look like a bed wetting sissy. Toting a massive, inter-cooled 2 liter 2,150cc engine on an all-titanium chassis with carbon fiber wheels. This beast was born from an affection for airplanes & Euro sport cars – leaving conformity in the dust.
