Introducing The Supercar For Superyachts

Introducing The Supercar For Superyachts

It’s a given that a number of the gleaming vessels on show at this month’s Monaco Yacht Show (taking place from September 23 to 26) will feature helicopters on deck – in superyacht circles having a helipad and complementary aircraft has become almost de rigueur. More likely then, to impress a roving billionaire eager to pick up a new boating accessory is a novel supercar created specifically for superyachts.

Launched by yachting company Camper & Nicholsons in collaboration with Briggs Automotive Company, the Marine Edition Mono is capable of reaching 170mph and can go from 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds yet weights only 580kg. That relatively light weight means it can be hoisted fairly easily onto land and deployed to discover the surrounding streets when the yacht docks, but for superyacht owners who prefer to spend their time at sea its main purpose could simply be to serve as the ultimate showboating frivolity.

To make sure it looks the part wherever it ends up, owners can customise the interior and exterior to match their yachts’ colour schemes. The seat will be made to measure, for example, and the name and port of the superyacht with which the car is associated will be etched on the car’s rear wing.

In response to the unconventional perch the Marine Edition Mono will occupy, other technical features have been subtly adapted too. Protective coatings on the car’s body and all exposed metallic components will protect against salty air and water and corrosion. Handily, the car is also supplied with a carbon-fibre crane arm that is compatible with all yacht crane systems and which can be used to transport the automobile onto solid ground.

Though none of the newly launched made-to-order cars has been commissioned as yet, Camper & Nicholsons says that the response has been enthusiastic: “We have had a great response and are in discussions with several interested parties.” Those who do wish to purchase one of the cars can expect to pay about £500,000 (plus delivery and VAT where applicable). The cars will be designed and built in Liverpool and manufacturers expect they will be able to produce one car per month if built to their standardised specification.

The “Blade” is light, sleek and – at an acceleration of 0-60 m.p.h. in 2.2 seconds – incredibly fast, just like you’d want any supercar to be. But a few things set this wondrous machine apart from others of its kind, foremost among them its method of manufacture.

The car, made by San Francisco–based startup Divergent Microfactories, has a chassis created entirely using a 3-D printer, Engadget reports. The 3-D printing reduces the overall weight of the car by 90%, the manufacturer claims, coupled with the use of carbon fiber for most of the car’s body rather than steel or aluminum. As a result, the whole vehicle weighs just under 1,400 lb.

“How we make things is much more important than how we fuel them and whether they have a tailpipe or not,” Kevin Czinger, CEO of Divergent, said in an interview with Forbes.

Czinger has also put some thought into how the car is fueled, however, with Blade carrying a 700HP engine that can run on compressed natural gas — thereby also making it one of the most environment-friendly automobiles around.

The company will produce a certain number of cars initially, but eventually plans to sell its technology to smaller manufacturers to make their own vehicles.

“We have got to rethink how we manufacture, because — when we go from 2 billion cars today to 6 billion cars in a couple of decades — if we don’t do that, we’re going to destroy the planet,” Czinger adds.

Self-driving Supercar: Audi unveils electric R8 e-tron that reaches 60mph in 3.9 seconds

Self-driving Supercar: Audi unveils electric R8 e-tron that reaches 60mph in 3.9 seconds

Audi has unveiled what could be the fastest self-driving car yet to be built and Audi says the concept vehicle will act as a ‘high-tech mobile laboratory’ for testing its technologies.

It boasts two electric motors, can go 0 to 60mph in under four seconds and can reach a top speed of 155mph (250km/h) – and it can drive itself. The vehicle uses laser scanners, video cameras, radar and ultrasonic sensors to build up a detailed picture of its surroundings allowing it to navigate through traffic.

While not the only company working on self driving cars, it seems Audi is attempting to build one of the fastest. The company claims its concept vehicle has two battery-powered motors that deliver 456 horse power, allowing it to travel from 0 to 62mph (0 to 100km/h) in just 3.9 seconds.

The name, shape and colour of the R8 e-tron were inspired 1982 science fiction film Tron, by Steven Lisberger. A sequel called Tron: Legacy was released in 2010.

A statement released by the company said: ‘The R8 e-tron piloted driving technical study is equipped with all of the functions of piloted driving.Data is acquired from the interplay of an array of sensors: a new type of laser scanner, several video cameras, ultrasonic sensors and radar sensors at the front and rear.

‘Based on signals from these sources, the central driver assistance control unit (zFAS), a compact central computer, computes a comprehensive picture of the vehicle’s environment.’ Audi also said it has used T-shaped batteries to help maximise the space inside the car and lower the centre of gravity.

The rear of the car is made of carbon fibre reinforced polymer and the luggage compartment walls are corrugated to absorb ‘extreme amounts of energy’ in case of a rear-end collision.

Superyacht with a helipad, submarine storage… and its own infinity pool

Superyacht with a helipad, submarine storage... and its own infinity pool

When the ultra-rich splash out on a new superyacht, they expect it to come with all the latest accessories. And that’s exactly what they get with the 223ft Explorer, which comes with its own helipad, infinity pool and plenty for space for supercar and jetski storage.

With space for 12 lucky guests on board, the concept yacht from British yacht designer Tony Castro is the ultimate toy for the extremely wealthy and has been dubbed the ‘Range Rover of the seas’.

It was designed to withstand any weather conditions and is sturdy enough to circumnavigate the globe – all while looking incredibly stylish, of course. When it comes to transporting all those extras any cruising millionaire needs to hand, there’s plenty of space for all of them.

The company explains: ‘With a large carrying capacity for toys and tenders, she is capable of carrying a helicopter in a climate controlled garage, twin limo tenders, car, submarine, jetskis, paddleboards and a variety of inflatables water toys.’

But of course, the life of the ultra-wealthy comes at a cost. According to Tony Castro Design, the superyacht costs approximately 40million euros (around £29million/$43million) to build, which means it is likely to cost even more to purchase.

While the yacht has been designed with ‘rugged utilitarian-looking aesthetics’, it is actually a sumptuous retreat at sea. For the 12 guests, there is space on the yacht for 15 crew, ensuring there is nothing always someone on hand to make sure the journey goes smoohtly.

The designers explain: ‘Her unique layout holds a full beam enclosed observation deck with opening roof, cinema, beach club, sauna, scuba diving pool, gymnasium, pool, wine cellar and ample space to accommodate a total of 12 guests.’

And of course, there are all the other luxurious finishing touches you would expect to find on board. The guests of honour can enjoy accommodation in the Master Cabin or VIP suite, while others can choose between four other double guest cabins.

There are also plenty of ‘terrace’ area, with sunloungers, giving the impression of sitting on the beach as the water laps the sands. In reality, the wooden areas just out into the sea with ladders down so guests can take a dip to cool off whenever they wish.

And the entire design is offset with panoramic windows offering views across the ocean.

Tesla’s Electric Supercar Has A Hidden ‘James Bond’ Mode

Tesla's Electric Supercar Has A Hidden 'James Bond' Mode

Elon Musk likes James Bond, so much so that he spent $1m on the famous Lotus Esprit that converts into a submarine.

Well to pay true homage to his favourite car the billionaire entrepreneur hid a rather special easter egg within the software for the Tesla Model S.

First buy a £49,900 Tesla Model S. Then press and hold the ‘Tesla’ button at the top of the giant display panel and you’ll be asked to enter an access code. Simply enter ‘007’ and then go to the Suspension settings page.

What was at one point a picture of your Model S is now a side view of the iconic Lotus. Oh and the ride height switch? That’s been changed to Depth (Leagues) of which there are two options for 10,000 or 20,000.

It goes without saying that this is all kinds of excellent. Tesla didn’t have to include the easter egg, in much the same way that the Model S sound system doesn’t have to go all the way up to ’11’ but it does, and that’s what matters.

Tesla aren’t the only company to include neat easter eggs in their products. Google’s Chromebook Pixel will delight you with a light show if you input the ‘Konami Code’ into the keyboard while Apple Maps in London now features a Big Ben that shows the real time and a London Eye that actually spins.

The Acura NSX supercar press kits are selling for $275 on eBay

After a decade of absence from the automotive market, the Acura NSX supercar generated much excitement when it was introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Only a few days after the news broke, a number of journalists – or at least, people who were accredited as journalists at the show’s press preview on Monday and Tuesday – put their NSX press kits up for sale on eBay.

It’s common for automakers to offer elaborate press kits when they introduce new models, and the NSX kit did not disappoint. Packaged in a lovely tin box, it contains a USB thumb drive loaded with pertinent model information and a small metal model of the car.

One sold on eBay today for $167.50, and other online auctions ending later have received bids well in excess of $100. There’s even one enterprising individual offering a buy-it-now price of $250 for one of the kits.

Do you think it’s right for journalists to sell the press kits on eBay?

The gold-covered bicycle which costs more than a supercar

The gold-covered bicycle which costs more than a supercar

Keen cyclists are often accused of showing off their trophy bikes. But what if that bike is made of pure 24 carat gold?

The team at luxury goods company Goldgenie.com have added a golden sheen to smartphones in the past. Now they have coated a full-sized men’s racing bike in the precious metal.

The bike with the Midas touch will set you back a stunning £250,000. It is drenched with gold – even the gears glisten with the stuff. And there’s some diamonds to light it up at night as well.

As for being saddle sore, forget it. The rider of this golden bike will enjoy a soft San Marco suede saddle and SR4 racing tyres. There’s also the option of a custom design using other exotic skins and precious stones.

Cyclists are not the first to be tempted by gold. Back in August, the makers of theJames Bond films commissioned a gold Aston Martin to mark the 50th anniversary of the film Goldfinger.

But while Goldgenie’s bike may mark a golden age of luxury, you are unlikely to get anywhere on it fast. Gold is notoriously heavy – so when it comes to speed, those on second-hand rattle traps will probably still be ahead.
