BMW i8 - For the pseudo-environmentalist billionaire in every one of us
I was thoroughly underwhelmed by BMW's latest concept on show at the Auckland Museum today.
It has similar hybrid technology but a lower all-electric range than a Chevrolet Volt, yet it costs $270,000 USD more.
Or think of it as an all-electric Tesla Roadster, but with less range, less power, less acceleration, less style, less reliability - but with higher emissions, and at twice the price.
The styling is a personal thing, but I found it too weird to gain mass-acceptance. Perhaps thankfully, the finished product will look completely different.
Still, God only knows what market this car is aimed at. Even so, by 2014 (when this vehicle is ready for production) the competition will have soared ahead with more practical, long-range all-electric vehicles.
For example, the Tesla Model S is a visual masterpiece with an all electric range of 300 miles (482 kilometres) - and full-scale production starts in August 2012.
You'd better think fast BMW.

BMW GINA Concept
DtRockstar1 records a one of a kind concept car, the BMW GINA. GINA stands
for Geometry and functions In 'N' Adaptations. The body is made of a very
strong fabric, polyurethane coated spandex. It is amazing to see the doors
opening and the hood opening like an eye. This was GINA's first time in the

Mercedes S-Class Coupe Concept INTERIOR
The white instrument panel exudes sensual clarity. Its curved shape is
reminiscent of a whale fluke just before it re-enters the water. Like the
entire interior it is dominated by flowing lines: the upper and lower wave
create a clear structure.
The upper section of the instrument panel seems to float sensually in front
of the dashboard as a so-called top layer. The instrument panel seamlessly
transitions into the doors in a wrap-around design. The wavelike motion
continues in the door panels.
The ventilation nozzles, which among other places are housed as a
four-piece cluster in the centre of the instrument panel, have a futuristic
and highly detailed design: fins that route the air stream surround an
oblong hole. The ventilation nozzles are designed to add contrasts and are
made of a mix of white aluminium with a ceramics-like appearance and
brushed and polished aluminium.
The aluminium control elements have a functional and clean design, and
provide an exciting contrast to the organic and avant-garde shapes that
On top of the free-form surface under a reduced hood are the 30.7-cm
(12.3-inch) screens familiar from the new S-Class. They have an aspect
ratio of 8:3. In the Concept S-Class Coupé the fully glazed colour
displays are even slimmer and seem to float even more freely. As high-tech
elements they offer an exciting contrast to the sensual landscape of the
instrument panel. The colour scheme of the displays is bluish and
consequently sporty and modern.
A touch screen showing four world clocks is located on the centre console.
The driver can choose which clocks to display: To do so, the driver first
scrolls on a globe in the display and selects a time zone before a
drop-down menu offers the corresponding city selections. The world clock
concept was designed and implemented by designers and engineers at the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Center in Palo Alto, California, USA.
The central command unit on the centre console looks like a shiny jewel.
Its extremely high-quality "black diamond" surface creates depth of field.
The "black diamond" method uses the chemical CVD (chemical vapour
deposition) gas phase process to deposit a precious metal on a high-sheen
chrome surface at temperatures of 1000°C. The metal reacts with the
surface to form a layer that is highly scratch-resistant and has a high
The door panels of the Concept S-Class Coupé are made from aluminium.
Using computer algorithms delicate topographic lines were milled into the
metal and mimic the contours of the door-mounted control elements. This
creates an interesting light pattern with tiny sparkling highlights. For
this creation the designers drew their inspiration from rock formations in
Utah, USA. The progressive perforations of the loudspeakers were also
generated using algorithms and display some intelligent aesthetics of
Like the entire interior the seats have a highly dynamic and natural "flow
of lines" and continue the sculpted design of the shapes. The front seats
evoke associations of haute-couture tailoring because their sculpted shape
embodies sensual lines reminiscent of figurines in fashion design. In the
upper section of the seat the side bolsters envelope the occupant like a
collar. The vertical lines of the seats come courtesy of an array of
delicate piping. Piping on the side bolsters provides contrast and like the
perforation of the seat surfaces is a factor in the sporty-elegant
The choice of colours and materials plays with the extroverted contrasts of
anthracite and white as well as aluminium, and bolsters both the timeless
modernity and avant-garde nature of the design and the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé to ultimate exclusivity, high quality and perfection. In
this spirit the instrument panel and seats are made from supple calfskin.
The roofliner of the vehicle is made from hand-woven silk and consequently
underscores the exclusive character of the interior.

Laraki Epitome 1750HP SOUND! Start Up + REVS!
This video features the world debut of the Laraki Epitome at the 2013
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It's created by yacht builder Abdesslam
Laraki, the Epitome has the engine of a C6 Corvette V8, but unlike the
Corvette this machine is all supercar. When it's fueled by 91-octane
gasoline, the Epitome can produce 1200 horsepower. When it's fueled
by 110-octane gasoline, the Epitome can produce an extraordinary 1750 horsepower! If that
should come to pass, the price could move down from the concept model's
prospective $2 million price tag.

The $4.5 Million Lamborghini Veneno
Check me out on Facebook: www.facebook.com/StradmanPhotography
This $4.5 million dollar Lamborghini Veneno was shown at the Quail
Motorsports gathering in Monterey, California. Lamborghini is producing
just 4 Venenos; This one will be at the Lamborghini factory in Sant'agata
Bolognese, Italy. Two of the remaining three will end up in the United
States, one in Miami, Florida and one in Long Island, New York. The third
one will end up in the Middle East. The two American bound Lamborghini
Venenos have been delivered. The Veneno in Long Island, owned by Antoine
Dominic (owner of Lamborghini Long Island) is expected to be displayed at
the showroom of Lamborghini Long Island. Dominic is a long time Ferrari
owner who had an F40, F50, Enzo and an MC12 prior to switching to
Lamborghini. The Miami bound Veneno, owned by Kris Singh, is expected to
be driven somewhat regularly. Mr. Singh is managing director of Tequesta
Investments. Each of the three customer delivered Venenos is finished in a
different colored accent, red, white and green. The Veneno in this video
is red. This is noticeable on the front splitter and rear diffuser.
It has been announced that Lamborghini will also introduce a roadster
version of the Veneno. Lamborghini will produce 9 Lamborghini Veneno
The Lamborghini Veneno was first unveiled at the Genevea Auto Show in April
2013. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was first photographed at a special
private viewing in Beverly Hills, California in November 2013. It's
official debut was on an Italian air craft carrier in Abu Dhabi. It also
was shown at CES 2014, Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in
conjunction with Monster Audio, who fitted a custom $100,000 sound system
in the Veneno Roadster.
The Lamborghini Veneno is a development of the Lamborghini Aventadors 6.5L
V12 producing 740 HP. Veneno means venom in Spanish. Lamborghini currently
produced the Aventador, the Veneno and is set to begin production of the
Gallardo replacement, the Lamborghini Huracan. The Lamborghini Huracan
LP610-4 is set to be officially unveiled at the Geneva International Auto
Show on March 4, 2014.
The Lamborghini Veneno follows in the footsteps of other extremely limited
production Lamborghinis. Prior to the Veneno, Lamborghini built 20 race
oriented Lamborghini Sesto Elementos, based off the Gallardo. Prior to the
Sesto Elemento, Lamborghini produced the Lamborghini Reventon, of which
only 20 coupes and 15 roadsters. The Reventon was sold for $2 million USD.
