Toyota Unveils 2020 GR Supra

Posted in Cars and Rides

It’s been more than twenty years since Toyota rolled out a new Supra, but it’s back. The 2020 GR Supra made its official debut at this week’s Detroit Auto Show. Developed with Toyota Gazoo Racing and based on a FT-1 concept, the 2-seater is powered by a turbocharged twin-scroll 3.0-liter inline-six that cranks out 335 horses. It offers 2 driving modes—normal & sport. In Sport mode steering feel, throttle response, and traction are tightened up nicely. And if you want to drown out the exhaust tone, it has a 12-speaker sound system & Apple Car Play inside.

The last iteration of the legendary Land Rover Defender was discontinued in 2016 but for 2020 it’s back and the design is all new. And more good news: it’s definitely coming to the USA. So far, all we’ve got is a fresh set of spy photos to ogle & we’re hoping we don’t have to wait too long into 2019 to see it undressed in all its boxy glory.

Bandit 9 Goes Full Chrome On This Classic British Bike

Posted in Motorcycles and Rides

Generally speaking, the Royal Enfield Continental GT is a fun but modest little bike. Good for backroads and scenic Sunday spins. This one though, built-up and chromed-out by the crew at Bandit 9 is more of a showpiece. They gave it handmade tins and a rear cowl plus built custom parts for pretty much everything: headlight, fork, swingarm, speedo, pegs, levers, brakes, and on and on. All of it, as you can see, is dipped in mirror-like chrome.

Curtiss Motorcycles’ all-electric Hera looks like it was pulled off the set of a futuristic sci-fi film but bike buffs will recognize the century-old influence of Curtiss’ original 1907 V8. They’ve re-imagined the bike as an all-electric but retained the V8 look by placing the lithium-ion batteries and 140Kw motor in the “cylinders.” The bike boasts a range of 280 miles and delivers 145 foot-pounds of torque that snaps it from 0-60 in 2.1 seconds. Hold on tight.

Makers of the Arc Vector are billing it as the most advanced electric bike ever made. And it’s not just it’s Tron-like design and impressive numbers: 0-60 in 3.1, top seed 120MPH, and a range of up to 200 miles. The bike comes with a helmet that acts as the keyless ignition and features a HUD that delivers speedometer, power & SAT/NAV data. A haptic riding jacket is also part of the tech package, which gives driver feedback, like a tap on the shoulder if there’s a vehicle in the blind spot, or calculating the bikes dynamic position based on G forces. It can even sync with music streaming from the helmet to amplify bass you can feel in your body.
