The image quality of Sony’s forthcoming 4K LCD cinema display is roughly 4-times better than regular old HD. Watching it might feel sort of like that scene from Poltergeist where Carol Anne is literally sucked into the television.
In terms of looks, changes to the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 are subtle. The big difference is the all-wheel drive powertrain that keeps the tires glued to the tarmac while shedding almost 150-pounds. With either a 350 or 400-HP motor, each of the four models: the 4, 4S, Coupe, and Cabriolet, come equipped with a 7-speed manual gearbox or the optional gas-saving PDK automatic. For being a safer and more efficient 911, Porsche did a great job of keeping it real.
Harley has been trying hard to shake the stigma their big twin bikes have as being heavy, two-wheeled chrome boats that dads and doctors drive on Sunday afternoons. Their latest effort, the 2013 Softail CVO Breakout retains the chrome but gets chopped fenders, a 240 rear tire, a beefy air intake, and offers the best weight to torque ratio of all the CVO bikes. Fast? Definitely.
Nope, not the new Hummer. Guess again. It’s a Conquest. They build handcrafted SUVs & their latest is the Evade. Despite looking a bit like an armored-car, which is their specialty, this nearly $600K, Ford-powered brute is all about luxury. In addition to front and rear night vision cameras, it’s got a plush limo-style interior and 3 sunroofs.
The hottest summer on record in U.S. history just got a little warmer. Details on the 2013 Range Rover just hit the web. Like its predecessor from last year, this new one is another stunning status symbol, replete with V8 power and lots of leather & woodgrain. Auto media haters however, are already drawing comparisons to the Ford Flex. Deliveries scheduled to start in December 2012.
Built around China’s only motorcycle that can even loosely be called a classic, the Chang Jiang 750, this chopped up and murdered one-off custom called Nero, from Beijing-based Bandit9 is as mean a CJ750 as you’re likely to ever see. Custom-made tank and tins, seat, exhaust and electrical plus the all-over matte black spray job guaranteed the Nero a spot on all the cool biker blogs. You can see why.
What does it mean when someone is “stupid rich”? You’re looking at it. This is a Dark Knight themed home theater that was built to the tune of two million dollars. If the thought that maybe you’re just not smart enough to strike it rich has ever crossed your mind, just remember even idiots can get rich. This is proof.
Inspired by aviation, Hamilton’s Swiss-made chronographs are precise and powerful. The X-Patrol carries on this tradition with a face that seems to have as many numbers and dials as the cockpit of F-14. It features all critical chrono functions plus rotating dials on the bezel for metric to Imperial conversion of feet to liters, gallons to liters, pounds to KGs, etc. Source
This watch looks like something Granddad might have actually worn. But it’s new. The Vintage WW2 Régulateur Heritage from Bell & Ross gets its distinctive, classic feel from the sandblasted steel finish & a distressed calfskin strap. Deep notches in the bezel add to the antique vibe.
Any plug-in electric vehicle that isn’t a Leaf is cool in our book but few are as downright dope as the Brammo Empulse. Brammo’s two new models: the Empulse & Empulse R, have a transmission that feels like a traditional motor & hits 100+MPH plus feature proven parts like Brembo brakes and Marzocchi forks. 100 miles of riding for every dollar in electricity sounds good, too.
