Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

Unveiled at last year’s Detroit Auto Show, the Stirling Moss SLR reads like any Super Car of today: 0-60 in under 3.5 seconds, top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h), a million dollar price tag and extremely limited (only 75 will be produced). SLR stands for “Sport, Leicht, Rennsport” (sport, light, racing), and the cars produced were the result of a partnership between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive.

The most significant distinction though, is the lack of windshield and roof.

It seems as if Microsoft had little idea that it was going to pass the one million mark across Australia and New Zealand, when it commissioned a custom Xbox completely studded with Swarovski crystals. However, to celebrate the millionth console, Microsoft is auctioning off one-of-a-kind consoles to raise money for the David Peachey Foundation.

Designed by Richard Taylor and the Weta Workshop, the Halo console has currently being placed at AU$620 on eBay. The winning amount for the Halo console will be matched up to $10,000 by Microsoft New Zealand for a donation to Cure Kids.

2011 Hennessey Venom GT

A Lotus Elise with the engine of a Corvette ZR1 (725 hp/741 lb-ft supercharged 6.9 liter V8). Sounds like a recipe for tire-shredding mayhem, right? Well, you’d be correct if Hennessey didn’t also make it’s new 200 mph 2011 Venom GT available with a twin-turbocharged 1,000 hp/900 lb-ft torque OR an orbit-defying 1,200 hp/1,100 lb-ft torque “version”.

The new 2011 Hennessey Venom GT, of which only 10 will be made, will get you to 60 in less than 3 seconds (if you get the tires to connect), and not only provide you a road legal nuclear missile, but one that would make the Dark Knight and/or Mad Max jealous. The 2,400 lb Venom GT will be equipped with 15″ carbon ceramic rotors up, Michelin PS2 tires, fully-adjustable suspension, and a one-day track training program to teach what we imagine to be a course in not ending your life in a flaming ball of fury.

NASA Puffin

The puffin is an airplane concept created by NASA aerospace engineer Mark Moore. The vehicle is
designed for personal flight and utilizes an electric engine. The airplane would be 3.7m long with a
4.4m wingspan and take of and land from a vertical position.

The user would essentially standup in the plane and be able to fly with their head poking out through the glass tip of the plane. The plane's tail splits into four legs that support it during take off and landings until it closes during flight.  Because the vehicle uses an electric engine it would have no emissions, presenting an environmentally friendly flying option for a single user.

This is further amplified by the plane's light weight of 136kg and battery weight of 45kg. Moor estimates that the plane could fly in the air at around 241 km/h with a battery range of 80km. While it is just an idea now, you may see something similar in the skis soon.

Richard Loncraine

This monstrosity, owned by bike collector Richard Loncraine, the bike is built on a modified track frame and the weight of the rider is on the rear wheel. There is (hopefully) a fixed gear(there are no brakes on it, we didn't find it) to keep the bike in a stable speed and has no toe-clips on the pedals. It looks like an already-folded folding bike.

Concept : Organic bike

Designer Smolyanov Michael V has come out with a bike design that is environmentally friendly. The materials are not only eco-friendly, but also very light in weight and stronger than usual. The bike’s frames, suspension and steering components are grown from organic substances and then fastened. The bike really comes out with strong, lightweight and very powerful spatial structure after processing and destruction of organic carbon skeleton with fluorine. And that’s where the name M-Org comes from.
