Vuhl 05 Mexican Supercar

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

After teasing us earlier this week with the revealing of the 05, the Mexican carmakers at Vuhl have decided it was time to fully unveil their upcoming supercar. The Vuhl 05 supercar is reminiscent of vehicles like the Ariel Atom and KTM X-Bow, and was built with the track in mind. The two seater is built on a monocoque chassis, and utilizes carbon fiber body panels atop the aluminum construction to help shed weight.  The end result is a vehicle that weighs just 1,532 pounds, and with a Ford sourced turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder EcoBoost motor powering the lightweight machine, you can expect zero to 62 miles per hour times to be around 3.7 seconds. A six speed manual transmission is mated to the 285 horsepower, 310 lb-ft of torque motor for an awesome driving experience. Make sure you wear a helmet when attempting to reach the vehicle’s top speed of 152 miles per hour though, as thing doesn’t have a full windshield. Expect delivery of the Vuhl 05 during the Spring of 2014, with a price tag starting at £55,000.

The Homer: Real Life Simpsons Inspired Car

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

Fans of The Simpsons need no reminder about what The Homer is (from season 2 episode 15). When Homer’s brother Herb asked him to create a car that would appeal to the “average” American, The Homer was born. The vehicle ended up being extremely expensive to build, and sent Herb’s company out of business, but that doesn’t mean the car wasn’t awesome. The team at Porcubimmer Motors have decided to build a real life The Homer car set to debut at the upcoming 24 Hours of LeMons race. This thing has all the details dialed in including the metal bowler hood ornament, bubble dome out back for the fighting kids (complete with Bart and Lisa Simpson models), and is even equipped with the La Cacuracha horn. Check out the video below.

Air Cork Wine Preserver

Posted in : Food

(added few years ago!)

Sometimes you’re not looking to put down a whole bottle of wine. Maybe you’d just like to enjoy a single glass. The problem is that preserving your wine has always been quite troublesome, but the Air Cork looks to solve this age old problem once and for all. The Air Cork is another great product we’ve discovered while watching ABC’s Shark Tank. Lower the medical grade, latex constructed balloon end of the device into your wine bottle, pump the grapes, and the balloon will quickly create an air tight seal from inside the bottle. When you’re ready to enjoy the drink again, use the valve to quickly deflate the balloon. This easy to use contraption will prevent wine from oxidizes for up to 3 days, and will not affect the taste of the wine whatsoever. Check out the demonstration video below, and purchase yours today from Amazon.

Saker S-1 Personal Jet

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

A private plane isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? Your own private jet. Now  for about $5 million you can actually own one courtesy of the team at Saker Aircraft. The Saker S-1 Personal Jet is the most badass way to travel through the skies. Inspired by military fighter jets, the S1 can reach speeds just shy of Mach 1 (Mach .99 to be exact). While the tandem 2 seater looks like something the military would use, there’s no actual military training required to fly it. You do need to be a trained pilot though, but if you do run into problems, you can just hit the optional eject seat button. The jet is currently in the concept stage, but Saker is expecting to get this thing onto the retail market in 2019.
