In Germany, the German-Italian beauty Sarah Valentina Winkhaus has become well known to sports fans since she started hosting for the sports channel  “Sky Sport News HD”. In her second home, Italy, people have known her for a while. There, she has been hosting for Sky Italia as Formula-1-presenter, corresponding directly from the race track.

Sarah however doesn’t only love fast cars and race tracks, she also has a huge passion for soccer and has admitted to having a hard time choosing which team to cheer for, Germany or Italy since both countries are considered her home.

The future a la Mercedes-Benz


“A chill-out zone in the midst of the mega city traffic mayhem,” Mercedes-Benz calls its latest self-driving concept car, the Vision Tokyo — so named because it’s being introduced this week at the Tokyo Motor Show. “Chill-out zone” actually seems fair, because the interior of this smooth, silver bean of technology is an arc-shaped couch, where up to five passengers can, in fact, chill out.

There’s nothing production-ready about the Vision Tokyo — everything from the fuel cell drive train to the futuristic wraparound displays in the interior is a dream of a far-off world, though Mercedes deserves some credit for focusing on a singularly executed theme: all of its concept cars this year, starting with the F 015 at January’s CES, have looked like birds of a feather. Outside, there’s the otherworldly silver paint covering everything, glass included; blue LED accents around the perimeter make the car look like a prop from Tron and communicate the vehicle’s self-driving intentions to nearby pedestrians (another trick borrowed from the F 015).

Autonomous mode is clearly the focus considering the seating layout, but it’s still possible to take control — a “jump seat” unfurls and a steering wheel pops out on command. That’s not very chill, though; members of Generation Z (who Mercedes says the Vision Tokyo is for) want “personal contact whenever possible,” which they can get with the face-to-face arrangement while the car drives itself.

Among the stranger features Mercedes has envisioned here is a hologram projection system for showing apps and maps in three-dimensional space. There’s also a trick windscreen that will show a graphic equalizer — think a music visualizer from back in the Winamp days — whenever the occupants are listening to music. (Not to say you necessarily want the people outside your car to know what you’re listening to, but it’d look cool, at least.) All this is tied to an emissions-free drivetrain that Mercedes says is good for 980 kilometers (609 miles) — 190 kilometers in electric-only mode and another 790 kilometers in the hydrogen fuel cell.

The exterior of the Vision Tokyo is “comparable” to a “mid-series vehicle” in its dimensions. Arguably, even that’s too big for Tokyo, a hyper-dense city where subminiature “Kei cars” are extremely popular. But if you want to fit five people and play with three-dimensional apps, this concept might be your best choice.

Classic styling meets modern tech with the Equus Automotive Bass770. This 640hp monster lives and breathes America Muscle. Born in Michigan, this Detroit exotic aims to put Motor City back on the map. A 6.2 Litre Supercharged V8 engine powers the Equus Bass770, and the sound is exhilarating. An all aluminum chassis with carbon fiber accent panels and an extra wide wheel base keep this prancing horse glued to the pavement.

Inspired by the Ford Mustang, Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger, the Bass770 truly looks like an iconic muscle car from the 70s but drives with the comfort and reliability of a modern day sports car. The only option is to put down a second mortgage on your house and get one of these bad boys, but it will be the best $290K you’ve ever spent. Topping out at a whopping 200MPH and a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, it is sure to keep you entertained for years.

Dodge Challenger Vapor For U.S. Air Force


Dodge-Challenger-Vapor-for-US-Air-Force-1

The U.S. Air Force is known to get a bit creative when it comes to their recruitment tools. Built using all sorts of military specific technology, this 4-wheeled assassin is ready for any mission that comes its way. The Vapor supercar is equipped with an infrared thermal image camera on the front bumper that works alongside a roof-mounted 360-degree surveillance camera, allowing the driver to see right through pitch black darkness using the built-in dashboard command center. The command center includes three LCD screens which also give the driver the ability to activate/deactivate the “stealth exhaust system” (essentially exhaust cutouts) for super sneaky, ultra silent attacks. The stealth matte black paint job is the same stuff they use on their stealth planes (absorbs radar), the Lambo-inspired doors are Biometric controlled, and the carbon fiber wheels add the perfect finishing touch to this ride.

This new Lamborghini is indeed named after a bull, as the company likes to do. A 610-hp, 5.2-liter V-10 with seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. 0 to 62 mph gets done in 3.2 seconds, and the Huracán’s top speed of 201 mph. the Huracán gets its moniker from “the fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed” which apparently was known for its outstanding courage and strong sense of attack. Look for the Huracán to courageously attack the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Exploded Views of Classic Sports Cars by Fabian Oefner


general

Swiss artist Fabian Oefner is the best known for capturing moments in time typically invisible to the human eye. This time he represents two new series of his trademark work at MB&F M.A.D. gallery. Both projects, “Disintegrating” and “Hatch” are carefully and meticulously handcrafted images of classic sports cars, exploded, dissembled and dismantled in space. “What looks like a car falling apart is in fact a moment in time that has been created artificially by blending hundreds of individual images together. There is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment…freezing a moment in time is stupefying”, Oefner explains.
