Wow, this is a great collection of cars. I knew the Nissan GT-R would come out on top!
This looks like a real Nissan GT-R right? It’s not. It’s just a super-detailed 1/8th scale modelmade by UK model makers Amalgam. These fantastic replicas aren’t cheap however. They come with a $5000+ price tag which basically makes sure that unless your friends are as rich as you, chances are they won’t be owning the same thing by accident. Look at some more photos here.
Wow, here’s 4 and a half minutes of beautiful cars.
For the entire month of February, BMW will be releasing one short film each week that talks about the future of mobility and technology. The short documentaries include interviews with famous entrepreneurs, inventors, astronauts, visionaries, and designers who each have a hand in shaping our future.
The first of these upcoming 4 films has just been released under the title “The New City” and you can watch it over at the BMW Activate The Future website (the video embedded above is just a trailer).

Ralph Lauren’s cars are housed in a stark-white room with dedicated white platforms for each vehicle. His collection of vehicles includes rare jewels as well as extremely expensive commodities reserved only for the super-rich (which he obviously belongs to). It’s hard to tell if this car collection is open to the public, but if it’s not, you can definitely get a glimpse of the wonder over at Vanity Fair.
CNET reports that Melbourne, FL-based motorcycle company named Parker Brothers Choppers has built 10 Tron Lightcycle replicas that are fully street-legal and ridable. Each bike is reportedly going for $55,000 and allows the rider to assume flying position while riding this bike. Pretty awesome.
Adland posts this really neat ad concept from BMW that I’ve never seen done before. They use an after image burn in effect on the viewer and basically forces the letters of BMW to appear and fade away inside the viewer’s mind. The effect is similar to looking at a very bright light and then closing your eyes until you can see a halo of the outline of what you just looked at.
This is almost like an air show – but on the ground.
