China-based Daryl Villanueva is than am behind the staggering, jaw-dropping, mesmerizing Bandit9 custom bikes, machines built in exclusive, very limited runs, and which pack a huge styling factor that's exceedingly hard to beat in the custom scene. Meet the Bishop, Daryl's latest creation, a bike concept which is both a statement and a luxurious piece of modern art.
If anything, Bandit9 is exceptionally careful with the bikes' aesthetics, and the Bishop is not making an exception. Brushed metal, careful proportions, and radical styling are keywords in Daryl's work, and the Bishop is not at all shy to show off.
According to Villanueva,...
There's a heck of a long list of personal vehicle options if you're not into cars, starting with the classic Vespa scooter and the Segways, to all sort of electric bicycles, folding scooters and even electric skateboards. However, if these are still not minimalistic enough for your tastes, check out this one-wheeled contraption that will make you look like an acrobat on your way to the office.
If suited men traveling on Segways seemed strange, wait until this thing comes on the market and turn everything into a circus act. It's currently under development and it's called the Urban Glider....
10 years later after luxury brands Parmigiani Fleurier and Bugati joined forces in their first project together, the two decided to design three limited editions of the eccentric timepiece. First of the models, the Parmigiani Bugatti Mythe timepiece, will be unveiled this weekend and is reportedly priced at $430,000.
Now, we all know what great opulence means but sometimes these eccentric companies will amaze even the strong fellows out there. The Parmigiani Bugatti Mythe timepiece is one of three piece unique watches which will be unveiled this weekend during the Pebble Beach Concours de Elegance auto show events, in California. The other two models will debut sometime late this year.
Custom motorcycles that have hand built fairings always draw a little extra attention from me, I love naked bikes and classic cafe racers but there's something genuinely captivating about a sheet of metal that's been hammered into a landscape of curves designed to bend the wind around itself.
The faired bike you see here is the work of the talented metal-worker Junior Burrell, it started life as a Honda CM400 before having a Honda CB450 engine shoehorned into its frame. The bodywork was formed from sheet aluminium in an act that I can only assume was black magic, voodoo or witchcraft.
If you recall, there's a certain 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that will be auctioned off at no reserve tomorrow at the Bonhams auction as a part of Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and it is expected to be the most expensive car ever sold at auction. Well, other than the fact that the current record is close to $30 million (€22.4 million), there's really no telling how much higher this car could get.
While we'll have to wait until tomorrow's auction to know how much money someone is willing to spend on a car, Bloomberg reports that the expected pricing seem to vary a bit when it comes to this particular 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, chassis no. 3851GT. Although Bonhams' own estimate is between $30 million and $40 million (€29.9 million), Hagerty thinks that this well-documented, low-mileage example could end up somewhere in the $60 million (€48.6 million) to $75 million (€56.1 million) range. Even at the lower end of this price estimate, that would well exceed the $52 million (€56.1 million) a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for privately in 2013.If you recall, there's a certain 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that will be auctioned off at no reserve tomorrow at the Bonhams auction as a part of Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and it is expected to be the most expensive car ever sold at auction....
