Infiniti Reveals A Retro E-Race Car At Pebble Beach And It Looks Fabulous

No. Nissan’s luxury marque Infiniti did not exists 70 plus years ago. What you are looking here is Prototype 9, the marque’s tribute to the race cars of the olden days. Inspired by 1940s race car, the Prototype 9 was revealed at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It is not a representation of the future Infiniti, obviously, and so don’t keep up the hope of driving one in the future. As you can see, Prototype 9 is fabulous looking because it has the design hallmark that accurately reflect the race cars typical of the era. You know, things like an open-wheeled design, outstretched hood, wire spoke wheels with narrow tires, and a single-seater setup positioned way behind, above the rear axle. But why the Prototype 9? Well, here’s why straight from the horse’s mouth: Continue reading Infiniti Reveals A Retro E-Race Car At Pebble Beach And It Looks Fabulous

BMW i3 “Spaghetti Car” by Maurizio Cattelan Sold For A Cool €100,000

First of all, I have no idea why a German car is decorated with Italian definitive symbol of cuisine, spaghetti, and presented in an auction by BMW France. Quite a mix, don’t you think? Anyways, the car you see here is the BMW i3 “Spaghetti Car” as touched by artist Maurizio Cattelan, the same artist behind the solid 18-karat toilet bowl. For some reasons unknown to our non-artistic minds, Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, collectively called TOILETPAPER (!?), have decided to use the duo’s signature style spaghetti close-up imagery to decorated a BMW i3 and the result is, to us, both quirky and strangely alluring.

Zarooq SandRacer 500GT: A Supercar That Can Take On The Sandy Dunes

If you are going to make a car in a ridiculously rich country where 80 percent of its landmass is desert, it only makes sense to make a supercar that can take on the sandy desert like a boss. The Zarooq SandRacer 500GT is one such coming from United Arab Emirates (UAE). Previously a concept, this crazy off-road capable sports car from the young and ambitious middle east sports car maker has reportedly commenced production. Not only that, it specifications to have been bumped up according to a report.

Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

Affectionately called “George the Rolls,” this “slightly” custom Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe is Swedish skier, adventurer, car enthusiast and apparently now, a YouTube star, Jon Olsson‘s latest ride. Jon claims it as slightly custom, but to us, this thing is anything but lightly customized. Really. Just take a look at it. It is not quite recognizable as a Rolls, much less a Wraith, anymore. Hell, it doesn’t even sounds like a Rolls! But all in a good way, of course. Under the hood, the stock V12 twin-turbo motor was massaged to deliver 810 horses by The Netherlands’s Absolute Motors and it was dyno-tested as a proved that it is now a living, breathing 810HP beast. Continue reading Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

This Green Lamborghini Aventador Comes With A Matching Speedboat

An aircraft can go anywhere, but you can’t say the same for a car – even for an exotic, super fast car like the Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster. However, that’s only partially true if we are talking about the “run-of-the-mill” Aventador, not if you have the so-called Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” currently on sale on James Edition. With the Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” you’d be bagging yourself a highly customized 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster that only has 700 miles (1,127 kilometers) on the clock and in special order color of Verde Singh, but you will also be scoring a matching color and coordinated trim 2017 Marine Technologies “Mei” 52’ G6 speedboat, so your need for speed can continue even when the land ends.

One-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail Is Easily The Prettiest Spirit of Ecstasy Ever

The sad truth about exclusivity is, not many things money can buy is truly exclusive and this is especially true for automobiles. Even if you are rich enough to buy a Bugatti, someone else who are equally or more well off will have one, if not several.

Make no mistake, my friends. The Sweptail you see here is not your usual bespoke Spirit of Ecstasy ride. Continue reading One-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail Is Easily The Prettiest Spirit of Ecstasy Ever
