World’s First Bacon-Powered Diesel Motorcycle

World  s First BaconPowered Diesel Motorcycle

World  s First BaconPowered Diesel Motorcycle
Car  |  Motorcycle
Driven By Bacon, this documentary is about a diesel motorcycle that runs on bacon grease fuel. Austin-based Hormel makes a bacon grease powered motorcycle. Hormel came up with the idea of powering a motorcycle dubbed Hormel Black Label Bacon Motorcycle that runs on B-100 bio-diesel which is converted from bacon waste into bio-diesel by bio-Blend Fuels in Winsconsin. The bike fuel costs just $3.50 a gallon and makes the motorcycle run 75-100 miles per gallon. According to Nick Schweitzer, Hormel brand manager, the bacon bio-fuel does leave behind the smell of bacon when one drives it on the roads which all goes well for bacon lovers. Hormel is also looking for a bacon lover who’ll ride the bike on a cross country trip from Austin, MN to San Diego, CA.

Mercedes reveals Bulletproof Mercedes S600 Guard

Mercedes reveals Bulletproof Mercedes S600 Guard

Mercedes reveals Bulletproof Mercedes S600 Guard
Car  |  Coupe
At a glance,  Mercedes S600 Guard looks identical to a normal S-Class. Essentially, it's a bullet- and bomb-proof Mercedes. It's based on the latest generation of Mercedes S-Class, with a rather delightful 6.0-litre V12 engine up front developing an even more lovely 525bhp and 612lb ft of torque.  This car's top speed is 130mph, 25mph shy of the limited S600.  But, of course, there is a lot of security on board. The bodyshell has had protective steel integrated between the structure and outer skin, there's ‘splinter' protection, and thick glass coated with polycarbonate on the inside. It rides on Michelin PAX run-flat tyres which can travel up to a distance of 19 miles even when damaged.
Then there's armour covering the entire underbody for the first time, providing extensive protection against subterranean IEDS. All in, this new S600 Guard has been certified for the highest level of ballistic protection, which is VR9.
VR9, if you're wondering, means armour designed to resist rifle-fire from military weapons, a velocity twice that of handgun bullets, and resistance to splinters from hand grenades and explosive charges.
Other features include AIRMATC suspension, DISTRONIC PLUS with Stop&Go Pilot, BAS PLUS Brake, Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist, PRE-SAFE Brake with pedestrian recognition and ESP, Night View Assist Plus, LED Intelligent Light System, 360° camera. The Guard treatment also adds a panic alarm system, automatic fire extinguisher, and fresh air system.

Quant E-Sportlimousine

Quant ESportlimousine
Car  |  SportsCars


The Quant E-Sportlimousine is powered by salt water. Powered by a salt water nanoFLOWcell system. It’s a 912-horsepower electric car. The heart of the car utilizes a three-tank system that stores two types of liquid electrolytes — one positively charged, the other negatively. The liquids are circulated through the center tank; a battery-like cell with a membrane separating it into two halves. An electrical charge is generated from that membrane as the two liquids swirl on either side of it. The system generates enough power to propel the car reach a top speed of over 218 miles per hour and accelerate to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, and the range is said to be between about 250 to 370 miles between charges.

Mini Superleggera Vision

Car  |  SportsCars


BMW has unveiled a new Mini concept at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2014, in Lake Como, Italy, the Mini Superleggera Vision. Designed as a hybrid of classic British shapes, modern engineering and traditional Italian design and construction, the car was built by one of Italy's oldest bespoke car manufacturers and was mostly manufactured by hand.
"The MINI SuperleggeraTM Vision elegantly perpetuates what the Classic Mini started 55 years ago: reduction to the essentials. Its energetic, minimalistic design embodies the dynamic essence of an automobile. At the same time it creates unique emotional beauty in combining the past and future of the automotive industry, i.e. traditional coachwork craftsmanship and modern design styling. It was a pleasure for me to design a concept like this.” says Anders Warming, Head of MINI Design.
The perfectly balanced proportions indicate at first glance what the electrically powered MINI Superleggera™ Vision has to offer in terms of a driving experience: the stretched bonnet, long wheelbase and cool, short overhangs convey pure driving fun. As in every MINI, the wheels are set widely on the body, promising a high degree of agility. The passenger cell is slightly set back, further underscoring the car’s dynamic impression. The overall effect of the MINI Superleggera™ Vision is sporty, elegant and dynamic."

116MPH: Honda Sets New Record For Fastest Lawnmower

116MPH Honda Sets New Record For Fastest
Car  |  Other


This is Honda's Mean Mower, the new world record holder for fastest lawnmower, at 116.57MPH.
"To claim the record, the lawnmower had to run through a 100-meter speed trap, and it had to make two passes in opposite directions within an hour with the average taken between them.
The Mean Mower is based on a Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor that's been modified by British Touring Car Championship squad Team Dynamics. It has a newly fabricated chassis from 4130 chromoly steel and packs a 1.0-liter engine from a Honda VTR Firestorm motorcycle with a six-speed sequential gearbox. The engine produces 109 horsepower and 71 pound-feet of torque - enough power to reach 60 mph in around four seconds. The suspension and wheels come from an ATV, and the cutter deck has been remade in fiberglass. The grass bag holds the fuel tank, oil cooler and secondary radiator. The engine no longer actually cuts grass. Instead, the blade is driven by two electric motors"

The KiraVan: The World's Most Craziest, Bad-Ass Exploring Vehicle

The KiraVan The World s Most Craziest BadAss Exploring

The KiraVan The World s Most Craziest BadAss Exploring
Car  |  Other
Inventor Bran Ferren created a ultimate adventure vehicle for his 4-year-old daughter Kira. The KiraVan is the ultimate in traveling tech. The KiraVan is 52 feet long, and 12 feet high to the top of Kira’s penthouse room. The car provides communications, sensing technology, and light, and can deploy drones to scout the road ahead. KiraVan’s massive trailer, which is 31 feet long and more than 10 feet high and houses an ecofriendly bathroom, a custom-designed upscale kitchen, and Kira’s own “penthouse” loft (which she herself helped design). 
"Like his MaxiMog, the KiraVan is adapted from a Mercedes-Benz Unimog. Ferren and his team have gutted most of the original equipment, leaving only the steering wheel and a few smaller components. Among their numerous additions are a series of custom-made, overhead- and dash-mounted touchscreen cockpit displays, which monitor the vehicle’s health and navigational progress; a joystick-operated situational-awareness system, which allows passengers to see the view from any one of the vehicles’ 22 cameras and provides infrared thermal imagery of the road’s temperature; and an emergency-beacon locator-transmitter, which goes off automatically in case of an accident—if, say, the vehicle flips over. (With his radio direction-finder subsystem, Ferren can also track nearby vehicles that might be in trouble.)
There’s more: A joystick for the truck’s hydro-drive system, for switching from four-wheel drive to six-wheel drive. Passenger-side display units that allow riders to monitor everything from tire air pressure to battery problems. And a communications system that turns the vehicle into a mobile command base and allows Ferren to communicate and coordinate with nearby aircraft. “It’s basically as if we’re an airplane, just stuck to the ground,” he says. Every form of communication imaginable is on the truck—from walkie-talkies to UHF radios to high-powered GPS systems. “I always want to know where I am,” Ferren says. The KiraVan can send emails from under a triple-canopy rain forest
