A new music video from animator Cyriak Harris, who’s taken a random bit of vintage footage (wherein an old man attempts to eat breakfast in the middle of the road), then run it through the nightmare-o-tron a few times, as is his wont.

Naturally, you’ll have seen his ‘Like And Subscribe’ video for Adam Buxton’s podcast.

Behold: The BMW X Krautmotors Bauhaus 100 F850 GS – a collaboration celebrating 100 years of the 20th century’s most influential design school.

To wit: a stylistic update of the classic 1969 BMW /5 with the slimline engine from the BMW F 850 GS adventure bike all set in a frame designed using Bauhaus principles of handcrafted geometric minimalism.

The bike is fully functional but really only intended as an exhibition piece.

Behold: the Lotus Evija Electric Coupe. Capable of 0-100km/h in under 3 seconds, a top speed of 320km/h, a 400km range on a full charge and a frankly alarming 1,973 bhp, it will be the most powerful production car ever built.

Each individual wheel can transfer more power than any car Lotus has produced to date.

Built around a one-piece carbon fibre monocoque chassis with laser headlights and a racetrack inspired interior, only 130 will be made, each of which – including yours – will cost €1.87 million.

Behold: the Bentley EXP 100 GT concept – a ‘vision’ of Bentley’s planned all-electric ultra luxury grand tourer recently revealed via a live stream.

Despite being 5.8 metres long and weighing in at 1.9 tonnes (relatively light for a Bentley), the real-life EXP will do 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 300km/h and a 700km range on a full charge.

Price as yet tba but if you have to ask…

Behold: the rolling sculpture that is the Curtiss Zeus Radial V8 – an all-electric 217bhp motorcycle with its eight battery packs arranged in tribute to the original Curtiss V8 racing bikes of the early 20th century – a design that also allows for improved engine cooling.

Set to launch next year and yours for around €66,000.

Behold: the De Tomaso P72 Coupe – a 60th anniversary offering from the Italian marque paying curvaceous homage to the short-lived De Tomaso P70 of the mid 1960s.

Only 72 of these carbon fibre-bodied, quilted leather-lined presumed track monsters (on account of as-yet unspecified power plants) will be made.

Yours for just over three quarters of a million euro.
