Officially debuting at the Geneva Motor show later this month, Jaguar Land Rover has finally pulled the cover off (or, the full cover) the SUV that’s going to be slotted between the Range Rover Sport and Evoque, the 2018 Range Rover Velar. With a panoramic glass roof, twin 10″ high-definition touchscreens, Range Rover styling and a host of luxury upgrades, the Range Rover Velar is an iconic classic in the world of mid-size SUVs even though it hasn’t rolled off the line yet.

The designer, Mauro Giamboi, calls it a less formal form of yachting. Whatever your take, a trip aboard the Ego Superyacht Catamaran would certainly be enjoyable. This concept vessel measures 36m long, with three decks and a beam of 12.8m. The two master passenger cabins offer loft-style layouts meant to attract a more contemporary clientele, while two more guest cabins lie in the portside hull. The starboard hull houses up to six crew, and the full-beam salon has plenty of space for social activities. Continue reading
If turning up late to your mum’s lunch isn’t an option, it’s time to use a James Bond-style jetpack.
If the Lazareth Yamaha R1 “Back to the Future” Cafe Racer looks familiar, it’s because it began life as one of the futuristic motorcycles in Babylon A.D. about ten years ago. The movie was terrible, but hot damn did Lazareth do some really great work when it came to the futuristic bikes. With the restrictions for build design and cost removed, the mad Frenchman Ludovic Lazareth set about further transforming the 1999 Yamaha YZF R1 until he created the futuristic cafe racer of his dreams. That meant an extensive modification list including: a complete carbon fiber treatment, single-sided swing-arms on both the front and the rear, custom fenders, shortened rear end, extended exhaust with built in LED taillights and bits from TFX suspension, Brembo, and Rizoma. $53.000

Dubai has announced that flying drone taxis will whisk passengers around its fair city this summer. The mini-airships are Ehang184 Autonomous Aerial Vehicles, which are set up to carry one human and a bag — a total of 100 kg — up to 31 miles at speeds in excess of 60 mph. The drones take two days to fully charge. The head of the city’s Transportation Agency says this is a reality, not a Star Trek pipe dream: “We have actually experimented with this vehicle flying in Dubai’s skies.”
Finally. Now you don’t have to feel weird about falling asleep in a cab. Or not wanting to talk to a cab driver. Or being in a traffic accident because your cab driver is insane. That’s a lot to look forward to. Falling to our death over a borderline obscene, unnatural, arid desert-scape with fake islands, on the other hand… not so awesome.
Imagine zooming to a gas station in your Jaguar, filling up your tank and taking right off without any hassles of paying for that fuel. Sounds heavenly? Well this may soon become your reality if own a Jaguar XE, XF, or F-Pace in the United Kingdom, as the automobile giant has recently joined hands with Shell for an innovative gas-payment system. The one-of-its-kind in-car payment system requires users to install the Shell app, that can be operated via the car’s touchscreen for payments. All you need to do is, select the amount of full you need and make the payment via PayPal, Apple Pay or Android Pay (to be introduced later). Further, the app also generates a receipt for your payment on the display itself, and forwards along a copy to your registered email address. The in-car initiative is commenced by the brand to offer an extended degree of convenience to its clientele, especially in situations where they forget to carry their wallets or simply do not wish to step out.

Foldable bikes, generally speaking, are petite things. They’re built for the urban commuter who wants to get from point A to B without hauling around a full framed bike. The MOAR eBike, however, is completely unapologetic about its big size and hefty electric engine.
One wouldn’t necessarily expect to see a bike with 26 by 4 inch tires, full suspension, and an aircraft grade aluminum frame fold down neatly into an easy to stow size – but MOAR isn’t in the business of doing what people expect. Built to tackle tough terrain and roll over heavy snowfalls like it’s no big deal, this bike features a 48-volt 750-watt battery powered motor with an impressive 118 pound feet of torque. Not only does this thing have enough power to tow an SUV from a standstill, but thanks to its 1,000 lumen headlights and LED brake light – it can zip around town at speeds of 20 miles per hour. No word yet on pricing- but by signing up for a launch notification on their page you can get over half off retail.
It’s not a boat, it’s a yacht. At least that’s what you’ll be saying to everyone once your new Riva 56’ is docked at the boat club. The newest offering in the Riva family, this yacht works to bridge both modern technology and design, fusing them together to create a highly capable and desirable watercraft that will look the part anywhere from the French Riviera to the south beaches of Miami.
Power for the 56’ comes compliments of twin MAN engines pushing out upwards of 1,000 horsepower each that’s good to get you and a deck full of compadres to a top speed of 36 knots for 260 nautical miles on a full fuel tank. It features an all new hull design giving the yacht a sleeker look and once you’re on board mahogany and teak wood, lacquered wood interiors and a modern windshield greet you and your guests. Aboard there’s also a handful of comfortable sofas to relax on, a wooden dining table for freshly caught meals, three bathrooms, a set of guest cabins, and a VIP cabin for the captain of course. No word on pricing just yet.
