After devoting three quarter of the time to Tesla Semi at the recent Tesla unveiling, Elon Musk finally revealed the new follow up the original Tesla Roadster called, ermmm, Tesla Roadster. Sporting a wide stance and a suspiciously Corvette-ish/NSX-ish front end, the brand new Tesla Roadster is as sleek as you would have expect from Tesla, or any roadster for that matter. Propelling the vehicle are three motors: one driving the front wheels and two driving the rear wheels. The motors are powered by a 200 kWh battery system that offers an out-of-this-world 620 miles (998 kilometers) range on a single charge… at highway speeds.

Daihatsu Copen Turned ” Mini GT-R”: Blasphemy Or Awesomeness?

We heard Japanese Liberty Walk have been turning out pretty crazy custom rides with their custom aero kits. A look at the company’s latest creation, what we heard might just be true. The custom ride in question, called Nissan GT-K, is based on a K-class Daihatsu Copen. For the uninitiated, Copen is a tiny roadster that, IMHO, barely fits a grown-ass man. Words cannot emphasize how small this car is and if you knew how small it is, you will agree to it into a mini Godzilla is something rather intriguing. Btw, you heard right. Liberty Walks had a Daihatsu Copen slapped on with some pretty serious aeros, turning a previously cute roadster into a menacing mini Nissan GT-R.

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.

Toyota Japan’s Functional Wooden Car Heads To Milan Design Week

If a car made out of cardboard can be functional, wood should work for a car, right? Guess what? As it turns out, wood is exactly what Toyota Setsuna Concept is made out, well, mostly. In a world where technologies are central to automobiles, Toyota Japan begs to differ with the Setsuna concept that aims to reconnect car and driver at the emotional level.

It doesn’t communicate, neither does it think (unless its Herbie). That said, I think you probably have more chance of feeling for Continue reading Toyota Japan’s Functional Wooden Car Heads To Milan Design Week
