I have to say that I am truly surprised by the smarter-BRABUS' quality of build, handling, cool wheels w/low profile tires. This car is sturdier than a lot of cars I have driven that were twice the price and the gas milage is not to shabby, 33 city/41 highway (2010 EPA… Continue

918 Spyder concept car demonstrates Porsche's commitment to hybrid technology boasting outlandish specifications. The two-seater uses a plug-in hybrid system comprised of two electric motors coupled to a 3.4-liter V-8 racing engine. As a parallel hybrid, the car can run on pure electricity, just gas, or a combination of the two.
A mucho macho man like myself(hahaha) rarely uses the word cute but the VW E-Up is a really cute car and could very well be the VW Beetle of the not distant future, say 2013.
VW calls the E-Up the "city specialist" with a a range of 80 mile(130-kilometer) from a fully charged battery. Plugged into a household 230V power socket it'll fill up completely in 5 hours(a one-hour charge will fill 'er up to 80%),costing you around $3 for 80 miles or free if you are rocking a solar powered… Continue

Mercedes has integrated the new F-Cell and drive-train into a B-Class car. The F-Cell is Mercedes first series-produced vehicle that's hydrogen powered. The combination of an in-production chassis and the newly-polished engine means that the car is really being produced in small runs late in 2009, and this short-run production will result in 200 cars in early 2010, selling to customers in Europe and the U.S. . Yeah I know it's not a massive production… Continue

During my travels in Thailand, I was often coughing and pinching my nose while wandering the streets and trying to avoid inhaling the thick black fumes emanating from the "tuk tuks" or 3-wheeled motorcarts that are the most popular kind of taxi in Thailand. The drivers wear surgical masks (do those make a difference?), and guidebooks warn that respiratory problems are the most common complaint tourists have in these parts of the world. Well, good news… Continue

"Ride Wit Me" is what all the shorties will holla when they peep you on Puma's Glow Rider slayin' the mean city streets.
Can you believe that this joint glows in the dark, so you’ll appear as a neon colored eco-god on the night roads; the night glow paint collects light during the day, allowing it to glow when the sun goes down. In all cases it's a bike whose frame glows in the dark and comes in either green or buttermilk colors. The bike also… Continue

Being an optimist I would like to think GM is moving toward a Greener future with the Project P.U.M.A. Prototype they're doing with Segway and the forth coming Chevy Volt but we will just have to wait and see. But while we wait check just how dope the P.U.M.A. really is!
Think of it as a digital solution to an analog problem. Segway’s P.U.M.A.… Continue
