Audi’s Hardwood Bike

Audi-Renovo hardwood bike 01.04.2011

Seems like more car manufacturers are building bikes. Are they cornering the urban market? Maybe. But a bike that runs $6,530 isn’t cornering anybody.

The Duo is made of a monocoque hardwood frame that is stiff, durable and able to absorb shocks and vibrations while weighing about one-fourth of what an equivalent aluminum frame would.

Audi will offer the Duo in three variants too.

The Duo City is an 8-speeder for urban dwellers and comes with an upright rider position for short distances and 32 mm tires. Price is $6,530.

The Duo Sport is an 11-speed long distance rider with 28 mm tires for less roll resistance and is priced at $7,350.

The Duo Road has is a performance road-going bike with thin tires and 20 speeds and a price tag of $7,460.

Video: Volvo Art Session


Volvo did this right. Maybe ads like this will drive up car sales. I’ll leave that up to you all.

Volvo Cars Switzerland presents: the final Volvo Art Session film. 10 street artists spent 5 days repeatedly painting, spraying and designing a snow-white Volvo S60 against a white background. A high-end camera shot an image of the vehicle and the background every ten seconds. Now, after extensive post-production, the final Volvo S60 Art Session timelaps clip is finally premiered.

Video: 2012 Aston Martin Vantage S


Freshness:

Aston Martin is getting some criticism from the more forward thinking design aficionados, who complain that instead of creating new designs, the British car maker is focused on optioning and tweaking its baseline models – similar to the tactic employed by Porsche, which currently offers 22 versions of the standard 911. Others, who appreciate exactly where Aston is currently at, will be receptive to the Vantage S, which packs in some of the aggressive body styling from the V12 Vantage, and offers an engine optimized to produce 430 hp and 361 lb-ft of torque. The Vantage S also offers a more sport-specific chassis and tuning than the baseline Vantage model, the performance of which is put on display in this 8 minute video from High Gear Media Videos. The Vantage S is seen taking on the numerous curves and corners of the Ascari Race Resort. It’s a window into a stereotypical gentleman’s pursuit; pushing a car that is pedigreed, fast, and luxurious, around a beautiful private track set in the sun drenched south of Spain. And that’s exactly why it’s worth watching.

The Carbon Fiber Beast

The Mansory Zapico superbike is a carbon fiber monster developed in collaboration with German motorbike customizer Thomas M. George. It features a 124 cubic inch V2 engine made by America’s S&S capable of 160 hp and can do 0 – 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Most components are custom made by the Mansory factory in the Bavarian town of Brand, and of course the leather saddle is as luxurious as the upholstery in any of Mansory’s supercar creations.

A price hasn’t been set but expect to never own it.

Nissan Esflow Concept: Geneva 2011

Autoblog:

If a Nissan 370Z the electric boogaloo with a Leaf, the lovechild would be the Nissan Esflow. The two-seat Esflow is a rear-wheel-drive electric sports car that promises its only emissions will be some why-so-serious smiles.

A pair of electric motors sits above the rear wheels. Power from these units is sent independently, meaning the Esflow utilizes one engine per drive wheel. This, Nissan says, allows the Esflow to precisely meter out the torque and turn it into powerful forward acceleration. Thanks to this system, Nissan says Esflow will run from 0-62 miles per hour in under five seconds.

Providing the energy for that acceleration is the same laminated lithium-ion battery pack that can be found in the Leaf EV. The batteries are said to last for a range of up to 150 miles per full charge. In the Esflow, however, the batteries are spread out across the front and rear axis of the car to promote better weight distribution. Aswith all electric cars, the Esflow’s balance remains constant as the batteries are drained, unlike in a convectional gas-powered vehicle that loses weight as fuel is consumed.

The exterior style of the Nissan Esflow is typical concept not-gonna-happen. From the wraparound windshield and blue lighting to the pushed out wheel placement and rear 370Z taillights-on-acid, the Esflow is a Nissan sports car designer’s wet dream.

Inside, the Esflow is described as “ecological minimalism,” yet there’s an abundance of leather and suede, so despite the EV eco-cred, PETA members are still likely to be nonplussed.

KTM X-Bow Is Awesome


Autoblog:

The X-Bow is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged Audi four-cylinder with direct injection, good for 240 horsepower. While 240 hp isn’t exactly astronomical by anyone’s standards, the X-Bow’s Formula 1-style carbon fiber monocoque chassis means it’ll shoot to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds. This lightweight chassis also helps the X-Bow pull 1.5g on a skidpad if you’re running track tires. When you finally manage to terrify yourself and your passenger, as you inevitably will, huge Brembo brakes will bring you to a halt from 60 mph in just 99 feet.

To get the car legal for stateside use, KTM has to import the X-Bow as a kit car, which means supplying the Audi powerplant is up to you. To get your hands on one, contact British Racing Group, where you’ll get an estimated purchase price proposal from one of the customer relations specialists.

I guess we can say goodbye to the T-Rex.

A Look Into Ralph Lauren’s Garage


F.Y.I. his garage contains some of the most iconic cars in history, its truly something worth checking out….or we can devise a way to steal all his cars. What you think?

Materialiste says:

The legendary collector has amassed the best models of the past 100 years in his incredibly grand garage. It’s a collection composed of the world’s fastest and sleekest cars.

It also consists of some of the rarest models such as the 1938 Bugatti Coupe, the Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia Roadster and the one – off, that’s to say the only existing Mercedes – Benz SSK “Count Trossi” in the world today. The cars have all been restored with original pieces so that they are in perfect condition to take to the road once more.
