Lambo Like a Designer Would Lambo

Lambo Like a Designer Would Lambo

I like my Lamborghinis like I like my cheese-burgers : fast and flamboyant. And since you are an aficionado of such big and scary things, we’ll let you decide whether its worth 495,000 EUR for a one- of-a-kind Italian supercar designed by celebrity “skulls and swishes” fashion designer Christian Audigier.

Also the car goes very fast.

A Danish Super Car?

A Danish Super Car?

Oh snap! It’s a Danish super car. Somehow those words don’t go together in my head. When I think super car, I think Japan, America, Italy, Germany, maybe even France and England – but Denmark? It’s true, the Zenvo ST1 is a real Danish supercar with excessive power; a V8 1,104 pony galloping engine to be exact. The turbocharged 7.0 liter 6 speed manual tranny pushes the Zenvo ST1 from 0-60 in just 3 seconds. For safety and legal reasons, the car is electronically limited to 232 mph.

SNEAK PEEK! 2010 Volvo S60

SNEAK PEEK! 2010 Volvo S60

Rubbed my eyes twice to make sure it wasn’t a mirage. That really is a Volvo – just a concept (an S60 to be exact) but one the venerable automaker says demonstrates their future design DNA. Odd, I don’t really see anything ground breaking as far as concepts go. Its got the typical curves, fender flares and oversized tires synonymous with concepts. Still the fact that it’s a Volvo, and in comparison to the current S60, this is a huge change.

The Vandenbrink GTO has been awarded the GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2008. The award is given by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and is the oldest and most prestigious awards program worldwide, elevating the best and finest new design and design innovation for products.

Congrats to Vandenbrink!

Charge Up Your Car Inside Your Car

Charge Up Your Car Inside Your Car

Having a propensity for wild and crazy automotive here at Yanko Design, the GYM Concept Car comes as no surprise! Obviously very inspired by a recent gym renovation project, this vehicle tries a new combo, acting as a fully electric mobile workout center. Each workout charges the car for more driving.

Speed Bumps That Flatten for Slow Speeds

Speed Bumps That Flatten for Slow Speeds

Today my uncle and I were driving in his truck. We live in the USA, in Minnesota, where it’s currently snowing; his truck has a plow on the front. We were traveling at a modest 10 mph, and suddenly there’s a speed bump, we go over it, CRUNK goes the plow into the ground afterward, we almost flip the truck! We weren’t even going fast, and we were punished!

M.E.R.M. Flea Market on Wheels

So you fancy yourself a merchant, yes? How hardcore be you? Delve with me into the wicked world of the flea market, the ice cream truck, and the munch wagon.

And realize the future as it is brought back above.

You Love Strange Looking Bikes Right?

You Love Strange Looking Bikes Right?

Well here you go! Revolve works, as most folks can figure it, just like an average exercise bike. It helps you exercise your legs, thighs, and butt. But the look is amongst those sort of things that make you look really crazy, sexy, and cool. And on top of that, it does what every modern electronic gizmo does (or should to) : it connects with your computer.

This Grasshopper Folds and Generates Electricity

This Grasshopper Folds and Generates Electricity

Grasshopper is a foldable electric bicycle that turns into a trolley for easy transport. The use of composite materials provide rigidity and strength. The aim of the design is to satisfy those who like to bicycle in normal everyday life but live in places/cities where the configuration of the terrain is too severe (cough: hills). The target market is mainly composed of active people with environmental concerns and health concerns who live in urban centres, plus people who live nomadic lifestyles.

See and Behold; God's Skull of the Ocean

See and Behold; God’s Skull of the Ocean

Given the amazing economic state that we’re in, and the fact that you’re certainly one of those lucky recipients of those six-figure holiday bonuses, you’re more than ready to hear the full details behind the “Oculus.” This yacht’s unique shape “is representative of the jaw and eye socket bone structure of large oceanic fish and mammals.” What does that tell you? It’s not quite [biomimicry], but it does really look at home in the sea.

Touch Me Michael, I Drive Just for You

Touch Me Michael, I Drive Just for You

You love light-up cars, right? You want your car to stick-out and keep the streets bright, right? How would you like your car to be uniquely coded to open and activate based on your touch- your fingerprints and more? Ask Enache Florin to hand the plans over. Here is the Peugeot “Touch.”

Skate Shortens Your Commute, Possibly Life Span

Skate Shortens Your Commute, Possibly Life Span

There are certain gadgets that are simply too cool not to do something dangerous with. Case in point, “Skate” from Matteo Gentile adds an electric motor to a stripped down hybrid of a skateboard and snowboard bindings, creating something altogether different, dangerous and cool. Ostensibly created for regular transport and short commutes, I think we all know what was going through Matteo’s mind when he sketched this bad boy out.

The Best Render of a Yacht I've Ever Seen

The Best Render of a Yacht I’ve Ever Seen

Everyone has at least one yacht. I have six. But for those who want a yacht that’s unlike their other yachts, there’s the SENTORI 58R. The SENTORI 58R is a flybridge motor yacht, with three decks, a length of about 18m and a displacement of 28to. And it’s totally phat.
