The center brings “the most highly advanced generation of 3-D printers to the Volkswagen Group“. Partnering with HP, VW plans to 3-D print […]
Once again, Audi takes lighting to the next level. Taking inspiration from stereo equalizer LEDs, Audi’s lighting engineers are incorporating the latest lighting technologies into the Audi e-Tron with a “Less is More” approach. And it speaks volumes!
Based off the fantastic Ferrari F12tdf underpinnings, this “special” one-off Ferrari SP3JC is indeed special. Let’s address the bombastic livery only a mother could love. It reminds me of pre-road trip prep where you go to town with blue tape. Not the look you want to drive around in all the time! Ferrari cleverly absconds […]
Mercedes-Benz have unleashed to the unsuspecting public their new track focused MB AMG GT R Pro. Horsepower from the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 is rated at 577 hp and 516 ft/lbs of torque to propel the modified 2-door sports car to 60mph in 3.5 sec.

VW has emblazoned their all electric I.D. Buzz Cargo van with livery to commemorate the World Record Run up Pikes Peak with their other all electric VW I.D. R.

Yes, we’ve all been yearning for flying cars since we walking out of the original Bladerunner movie. That flick ironically took place in November of 2019. That’s next year!

When Audi first incorporated LED technology into their headlights, it was obvious from the beginning this was no fad. Now that every auto manufacturer has copied Audi with their own versions of LEDs in their headlights, VW comes out with their future vision of lighting technology.

We love automotive design and are always looking to get insight on how the big boy manufacturers do their thing. Like would you have guessed that the exhaust on the Porsche 935 was 3D printed titanium? Did you even know 3D printed titanium was an option?
There’s been quite the media buzz surrounding Samir Sadikhov’s rendering of his Ferrari F40 Tribute. What a way to introduce your CV to the world! Kudos.. Conceptual drawings, for better or for worse, are far from what an actual model may come to look like; However, with Samir’s experience in automotive design, bringing his concept […]
I just stumbled across this video with an inside look into Theon Design Porshe. Singer Porshe 911s are quite a high bar to try to beat. And with a claim to be just as good if not better at half the price? Well, the jury is still out on that one. I do like the […]
The paradox here is an Audi TT with 4-doors simply is not an Audi TT, regardless if whether you attach “Sportback” to the name or not.
