Design Talent Showcase – Jan Rosenthal 2023 Rolls-Royce Concept Wins Official RCA Contest

This is an oldie but a goodie. Not so old – 2012 — and previewing a Rolls-Royce for 2023. So it is a bit of Days of Future Past. Forgiveness Please if you have seen this already! Royal College of Art students submitted ideas for a 2023 Rolls-Royce back in 2012, with the winning design selected by Rolls-Royce executive leadership and designers themselves. The winning study is shown here in all its magnificence. Jan Rosenthal is the artist and elegantly combines many disparate ideas into one glamor-soaked luxury car. It is a four-door coupe with a SUV ride height. Very …

2014 Chevrolet Camaro RS Stars in Our Most-Watched Driving Video: 50,000 Views!

  My most popular YouTube driving reviews ever? I’m glad you asked! Without a doubt – it is the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro RS 2LT and its dual-mode exhaust — slinging around the Chicago suburbs on a rainy Tuesday morning. Just goes to show me… that I cannot anticipate which videos will be popular, and which will not! But a hot car and a heavy right foot seem to be requirements overall. =] Getting seat time in the new Camaro V6 dispelled most of my previous assumptions about Camaro owners: who I once said were (usually) either “Murder Victims” or “Murderers.” …

2015 Ford F-150 Platinum Is Disruptively Attractive in Real Life at Mustang 50th Event

The 2015 F-150 looks as incredibly new, high-tech and desirable in the flesh as it did on the auto show stands! It is set up to be a major sales disruption in a market segment it already owns with a 2:1 sales advantage over any other brand. The new F-150 is not a sure thing, but it appears to have it all via such a perfect storm of new equipment, new efficiency, new comfort and new style. Why upset a market that already earns, we reported in January, a cool $14-billion in revenue every single year based on slice/dicing of …

GoPro Hero 3+ Is Here And Ahhhh-mazing! Practice Videos in Legacy GT and Porsche Panamera S

The one caveat: these videos (appear to) need to be flipped manually to high-def. I just uploaded these 5GB files earlier today, so YouTube is still trying to choke them down. Now, to create some better Content to go with this 1080P video Quality…! I have the GoPro Hero 3+  with its vented rear window mount, which the manual says is best for under 100MPH.   It still sounds a bit gusty to me, but that is likely due to camera placement/operator error versus actual videocamera quality. =] The long version of Panamera video…

Video: Carrara White Rolls-Royce Wraith in Action

Worth recalling is that Wraith is *scary* fast, with only a soft woof and gurgle from up front to warn you that warp drive is engaged. Hang on. The music in this first one is via YouTube licensing, and hopefully shows the beauty of Wraith in motion. Full screen and 1080p High-Definition should enhance the experience. These photos are amazing, and are meta-tagged with Vienna and James Lipman, who we can only assume is a famous photographer. Hat tip to brilliant snapper Mr. Lipman! GIF City, USA … is no Vienna, Austria This next one is a silent old GIF. …
