Koenigsegg Trevita CCXR

The Trevita CCXR is the latest limited edition of Koenigsegg’s CCXR supercar. Trevita, in Swedish, means “three whites,” a reference to the number of cars planned for production. The limited production is due to the method and material employed in the manufacturing of the car’s bodywork.

In-house Koenigsegg engineers developed a special type of carbon fiber whose fibers have been coated with a diamond finish, creating a metallic white (as opposed to traditional black) color. Dubbed the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave, the material retains the typical, interwoven carbon fiber pattern, but with a unique, sparkling finish.

Other upgrades over the standard CCXR include a double carbon wing, paddle shifters, an upgraded exhaust system, carbon ceramic brakes, and an infotainment system.The 1018 horsepower 4.7 liter engine is carried over from the standard car.

Pricing has not been announced, but expect a considerable premium over the CCXR’s $1.2 million price tag.

Cadillac Converj electric car is for real, based on Chevy Volt

Using the Volt's same Voltec electric drivetrain, GM also plans to roll out the Cadillac Converj, which will reportedly look much like the original Cadillac Converj concept vehicle introduced last January.
GM's not talking publicly about its plans to build this gorgeous and posh electro-rocket, but the car's stats are said to be much like its Chevy Volt brandmate, except its interior will be all Cadillac'd up, fancy style. It's not just a pretty face and body, though, because the extended range electric vehicle can zip along at 100mph.

Concept : Jruiter + Studio’s Inner City Bike

The minimal bike concept from jruiter + studio was designed specifically for short-range urban travel and manufactured with the absolute bare minimum amount of materials. Performance-wise, the bike is on the slow side, quirky, and fatiguing over longer distances. Consider it a cafe racer with the performance of a beach cruiser. The positives are easy quick turns, huge power to the rear wheel to go over curbs and other city scape structures, and great start / stopping / sitting situations.
