Could The World’s Fastest Supercar Soon Be Electric?

Rimac Concept_One

Introducing the Rimac Concept_One. You might miss it, it’s that fast. This radical electric concept car could accelerate faster than all but two of the fastest supercars currently in existence.

It’s the brainchild of an award-winning young Croatian designer and its stats could outdo traditional petrol engines cars, let alone other electric ones!

Apparently the car produces 1018 horsepower, can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds, has a top speed of 305 kph (190 mph), and can travel 600 kilometers (372 miles) on a single charge.

First unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show in September, 2011, the Concept One is an electric vehicle that aims to be even faster than the Bugatti Veyron.

The notion that an electric car could soon outperform the best petrol vehicles in existence is certainly exciting. When the production car is released into the wild in the not-too-distant future, the eyes of the world will undoubtedly be watching.

Mexican Drug Lord Gets Busted Because Of His Instagram Updates

Mexican Drug Lord

It’s certainly not the first time social media has been responsible for catching a criminal. It just so happens that this time it was a very big fish!

Aaah the dangers of ego. This is Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, also known as “El Chino Antrax.” He is a Mexican drug lord who posted incriminating images on his Instagram account showing off his wealth, flashy cars, guns and women. Then it got him busted.

Needless to say the women, parties, bling, Lamborghini Aventador and gold AK-47 assault rifle were a bit of a giveaway. That’s even without the need to post a picture of yourself feeding beer to a parrot. Would you assume he was a Mexican drug lord from the photos below?

Concept To Reality: The 918 Spyder

Porsche 918 Spyder Concept

The official announcement has finally arrived: Porsche will produce the 918 Spyder in “limited series production.”

When the Porsche 918 Spyder concept was revealed just before the 2010 Geneva auto show in March, it was assumed that the car was bound for production.

At that point Porsche had never shown a concept car without putting it on the road, and Porsche suggested that this rule wouldn’t change under new VW ownership.

Details of the car’s volume and positioning are still unknown, but we would expect the former to be very low and the latter to be very high. The 918 Spyder will be Porsche’s flagship, the brand’s attempt to set the high-water mark for dual-source power.

The 918 Spyder is a performance hybrid with four distinct driving modes and an extra, KERS-type overboost feature like that found on some F1 cars in 2009.

It is motivated by various combinations of its 500-plus-hp, 3.4-liter V-8 (derived from the RS Spyder LMP2 car) and three lithium-ion-powered electric motors—two on the front axle and one integrated into the transmission—that make a total of 218 hp.

Interestingly, the 918 Spyder can function as both a parallel or a series hybrid, as the electric front axle can propel the car on its own, or in conjunction with the engine.

In its thriftiest mode, Porsche states a European-cycle figure of 78 mpg. In race mode, expect a top speed in the neighborhood of 200 mph and a Carrera GT–beating Nürburgring lap time of 7:30.

Kia’s GT4 Stinger Sports Car Of The Future

Kia GT4 Stinger

Kia has revealed the GT4 Stinger, which represents its vision of the sports car of the future, describing it as “the brand’s most aggressive concept car ever.”

The car is a departure from the production models Kia is known for and represents a new style of design for the manufacturer.

The ‘tiger nose” grille at the front of the four-seat coupe has a surround that glows white and is flanked by vertical LED headlamps. The clamshell bonnet has chrome accents as well as bulges for the 20in alloys.

For those of you already familiar with Kia, the Stinger is the same length as the Kia Cee’d at 4,310mm but lower and wider with a shorter wheelbase.

The GT4 features strong but lightweight carbon fibre parts – the aluminum wheels have carbon fibre inserts and there is a carbon fibre insert fitted underneath the front bumper to help improve aerodynamics.

If the car goes into production, its main rival will most likely be the Toyota GT 86 as both cars have the same size engine and are of similar weight.

Supercar Exhausts Make Stylish iPhone Speakers

iPhone Speaker Supercar Exhausts

These iPhone speakers made of supercar exhausts should be on every car lover’s wish list. Sound gadgets need to produce great sound, but they also need to be a stylish piece of furniture and these Ferrari exhaust pipe speakers answer yes to all of the above.

iXoost, an Italy-based company, is responsible for the unique design behind the Ferrari exhaust pipe sound dock. The docking stations are being offered in either eight speakers, 10 speakers or 12 speakers.

iXoost also offers its own music playing app, designed to complement the speaker system. With Coordinated graphics and technical HQs, the app matches the custom design of each recycled exhaust.

The pipes are taken from original classics such as F1 racing classics like the 1978 Cosworth DFV, 2006 Renault RS26, 2007 Ferrari 056 and more.

Replacing the original output of Italian purring, these speakers will provide blaring 140 watt sub-woofers and 70 watt speakers, available in six colors and several finishes.

Even though these come in at around at a pricey $6,900 we think they are worth every penny. Here are some more pictures:

Hetain Patel’s Real Life Ford Fiesta Transformer

Hetain Patel's Transformer

British artist Hetain Patel has turned a Ford Fiesta identical to his first car into a real life transformer! A 1988 Fiesta was given to him when he turned 17 by his Indian parents and years later Patel sourced a similar vehicle for this work of art (or awesomeness, whatever you want to call it.)

This is in stark contrast to the usual high-powered sports cars which transform into powerful warriors in the popular Transformers franchise. Not only is this a small and inexpensive Ford Fiesta, but Patel has transformed it into a human-like figure calmly squatting.

He says: “This posture is a recurring image in my work and forges a link between the lower classes in India and my immigrant family in the U.K, both of whom sit comfortably this way. Naturally this introduces a tension in this sculpture between the seemingly submissive nature of the squat and in this case, it’s oddly larger than life scale.”

He created this sculpture together with his father, whose day job is to convert cars into hearses and limousines, and brother, an engineer and fellow Transformers enthusiast. The rear wheels have been turned into feet and the doors have been cut in half to form the creation’s long arms.

The Ford Fiesta Transformer has since been moved to France, where it will be displayed at the Galleria Continua until December 22. Watch this amazing time lapse video showing how the work of art/awesomeness was made:
