A Car Full Of Gas

June 22nd, 2009

“A Car Full Of Gas” is the latest installation by Ariel Schlesinger. He placed 2 large tanks filled with cooking gas in an old Mini Cooper and drilled a small hole in the passengers window. Then he opened those tanks and lit the gas escaping through a small tube in that drilled hole. Crazy.
If you liked this one, you should also see his Similar But Fundamentally Different installation.

In Loving Memory – The Lamborghini Countach

June 10th, 2009

“In Loving Memory – The Lamborghini Countach” is a design project by Martin Meier. To Martin, the Lamborghini Countach is the goddess of all super cars. Many of his childhood fantasies and early design adventures revolved around its very design. It embodies the quintessence of engineering and styling qualities focused on performance. “In loving Memory” is a collection of design classics on which he applied the extreme aesthetics of the Countach.
Many thanks to spanier for the photos!

May 28th, 2009

Here are 3 photos form “Car Crash Studies” by Nicolai Howalt. They are actually a little disturbing but beautiful at the same time. I don’t think that those wrecks are staged.

Dekochari is typical Japanese phenomenon, deko is short for decoration and chari is slang for bike. Dekochari are actually the kids version of dekotora, which are decorated trucks. Satoshi Minakawa made these photos of these awesome vehicles.

Intersection

May 12th, 2009

Last Saturday was the launch of the German edition of the car magazine Intersection. The first I’ve heard about Intersection was when they presented their Car Covers project. I must admit that I’m pleasantly surprised with the magazine; I don’t read car magazines. Intersection is definitely the most esthetically one I have ever seen. Don’t expect the normal number crunching content, but spreads like the one below shot by Thomas Brown or other art, design and fashion topics … and a lot of cars of course.

Citroën Karin

April 23rd, 2009

I’m a little disappointed with car design lately, I haven’t seen anything new that I found interesting. Why don’t we see anything like the Citroën Karin, a concept car designed by Trevor Fiore in 1980, anymore? Just keep it simple.
