McLaren P1 Supercar Shown Ahead of Paris Show Debut

McLaren released new upcoming supercar which is seriously cool at international motorshow. Named as McLaren P1, this car has ultimate performance and will be better than McLaren F1. At the Paris Motor Show, Mondial de l’Automobile 2012, the McLaren P1 is previewed as a design study. Next year a production version, which the company aims to put on sale within 12 months, will be revealed.

Managing director Antony Sheriff said in a statement that the P1 would instead aim to be “the quickest and most rewarding series production road car on a circuit.” He also claimed the new McLaren would be the world’s “most exciting and most capable” supercar.

Cool concept– Hybrid Camper Car Plus Caravan Combo

Campervans are great for the wide-open road, but what happens when you reach your destination and want to travel in something a bit less clunky? This variant concept RV comes with a detachable car to let you cruise city streets once you exit the high-speed freeway.

This design challenge was tackled by Christian Susana with great attention to detail, from how each portable portion (car and camper form) looks separately to how they appear as whole when plugged back together.

The tiny two-seat car part is definitely built for short trips, looking like a cross between a golf cart and a Mini Cooper.

The larger back-end trailer takes its cues from classic VW-type campers, maximizing space with a lofted sleeping area, flip-down table-and-chairs set as well as compact storage solutions set into any remaining available areas. Curved lines also recall traditional Airstream trailers, which make maximum use of sleek streamlined exterior forms and more spacious-seeming inside spaces.

Expansive side windows depart from the classic privacy-oriented caravan style, abstractly referencing tourers in their openness to the outside world. Likewise, a front window long the top lets daring passengers get a sneak peak of what lies ahead … or an unfortunate up-close pavement view if you slide open the back door while someone is driving (safety second!).


How Dirt 3 games in live action -its totally fast and furious

Zooming over an empty Oakland Bay Bridge, careering round corners of deserted residential streets, dodging between moving trams, flying over hills….

Professional rally driver Ken Block seemingly managed to close down the entire of San Francisco to make an incredible short film showing him tearing around the city in a seriously souped-up Ford Fiesta.

For his latest internet film, Block screeches round the ghost town pulling various stunts at terrifying speeds.

The famous driver is behind the wheel of a 2012 Ford Fiesta which boasts 650 horsepower taking the car from 0-60mph in 1.8 seconds.

In a scene that looks straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster, Block drives between moving trams at one point.

Hurtling down endless, empty streets Block leaves tyre marks and billowing smoke in his wake. At points the car flies metres into the air as he accelerates over hills.

Six minutes into the video, Block is joined by his athlete friend Travis Pastrana, who appears on his dirt bike.

Block spins the car round Pastrana as he wheelies the bike.

The 10 minute film has become an immediate internet sensation, having been viewed almost 100,000 times since being uploaded onto Youtube today. [Read more...]

Cool concept C-1 motorcycle+car electric vehicle

I’m ride motorcycle to the office. It is easy and much more cheaper compared to driving car to the office. Car quite costly in terms of fuel, time, car parking and also highway toll. I’m ride motorcycle to save my time to arrive to the office because I can avoid jam. Maybe the weakness of riding motorcycle is can get wet during rainy day. But I found new concept of motorcycle that have the safety and durability of a car.

The ‘C-1‘ by lit motors is a gyroscopically stabilized electric urban vehicle combining the efficiency and small size of a motorcycle with the safety and durability of a car. The craft is nicknamed ‘the rolling smartphone’ for its extensive connectivity to mobile devices, integrated to account for traffic, weather conditions, and construction sites when selecting driving routes.

The ‘C-1′ uses electronically controlled gyroscopes to keep balanced at a stop, remaining upright even in the event of collision. charging completely in four to six hours, the vehicle has a top speed of over 120mph (193km/hr), with battery packs that provide a range of 150 to 220 miles (241-354 km) per charge. A production model is expected in lit showrooms in late 2014, however the price is not cheap as well.
