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?
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.
Wood has resurfaced this decade in a thousand different ways, but Herrlicht’s wooden opticals are truly the most intriguing. Timeless sophistication. Each hand-crafted frame is available in maple, pear or walnut – housed in an amazing cylindrical case worthy of a post itself. These specs are smooth.
If Austin Powers pulled wool pimping in his classic ride, imagine the shaggable babes you’d snag in a 2010 Lucra LC470. This vintage-looking, carbon-fiber roadster performs. 0-60 in 3.4 seconds with 400 HP. Capable of pulling 1.3 lateral G during high-speed turns. Yeah baby – yeah.
The miniaturization of tech continues. Panasonic’s AG-3DA1 is the world’s first integrated twin-lens full HD 3D camcorder. You probably aren’t in the market for this beast – but it does open up interesting options to a new range of amateur film-makers. Now, it’s only a matter of time before Youtube launches a 3D category. Scary.
Let’s have a moment of silence for the time when simplicity & practicality ruled the day – the 40s and 50s. Before mansions on wheels became popular, the Teardrop Camper was the preferred mode of packing it up and going “anywhere but here.” This Woodie incorporates all Silver Tear’s classic features – compact size, open rear galley, elegant interior finishes, recessed lighting & a slew of customizable options. If this photo transported you away from reality, at least for a few seconds, it’s time for a vacation.
The Widowmaker just got deadlier. Porsche unveiled the GT2 RS – a monster of a machine…scratch that…. the Godzilla of street-legal speedsters. Check out these impressive stats – 620 hp through the rear wheels – standstill to 124mph in under ten. You guessed it, this Carpocalypse is extremely limited – 500 to be exact. Dropping in August for a mere $245k. However think positive – you’ll be able to get your hands on an older model for a great price when the owner trades up.
Watch the video.
Seldom do we find an AMP that looks as good as it sounds. Cayin’s A-100T’s retro vacuum tube design offers a sweet face – but, the rare 1950s point-to-point wiring is the source of its amazing sound. Fined-tuned in Germany by a team of specialists, this hand-built beauty comes freshly loved to your A/V super-system.
If you’re into golf for every reason except exercise – here’s one for the arsenal. Traveling at a brisk 10 mph, Mantys Electric Golf Scooter is equipped with a scorecard clip, ball, tee & cup holder. A decent golfer can travel 36 holes on a full charge. After freewheeling over the course – I’d be lucky to get 9.
Gibson’s Appetite For Destruction was designed with the exact specs – wiring, wood, measurements, paint, electronics & hardware – as the Les Paul Slash used during Guns N’ Roses’ ’87 Appetite recording. Bottle of Jack & top hat not included.
