Daniel Simon: Genius Designer, More Than Just ‘TRON Guy’

It is with both sadness and pleasure that today we bring you some of the concepts created by Daniel Simon, a German-born designer, author, and producer, with professional roots as a senior designer at Bugatti and Volkswagen. Simon’s clients include Warner Bros., Universal, Disney, Lotus, and Hamilton. He has created iconic fantasy vehicles for Hollywood blockbuster films like Tron: Legacy, Captain America: The First Avenger, Prometheus, and Oblivion.

Bugatti MP100 Will Finally Take Flight 75 Years Later (Kinda)

Every now and then, an interesting part of history creeps back into the public eye. This week, we learned of the Bugatti Model 100P Superplane, which, in 1939, could have smashed the 469 MPH air speed record. Yes, the 900 horsepower plane, which contained two 4.9-liter, 450 HP racing engines would likely have cracked 500 MPH. Ettore Bugatti, who hated the Germans, decided to warehouse the plane while it was 85 percent done in a secret location for fear that the Nazis might learn of it. It was rediscovered shortly after the war and was sold at auction. A group Read More

Meet The Tri Glide: It’s Harley-Davidson, Japan Style!

The Tri Glide Motorcycle from Harley-Davidson represents a new (potentially giant) step forward for the hog-maker extraordinaire. Seeing untapped potential in the Japanese market, the company has decided to move ahead with a three-wheeled motorbike accessible to a demographic that may not be as familiar or embracing of the standard cycle. This particular ride provides enough stability so a standard motorist will not have to gain a special license to operate it. Anyone in Japan who can drive a car, can drive this. They’re approved for the highways and fit nicely in a standard parking spot. Furthermore, they’re pretty easy Read More

Hennessey Venom GT: New Record Holder For Fastest Production Car

Wired brings us this report of a new speed record toppling Bugatti’s stronghold on Fast Cars. According to the report, the Hennessey Venom GT set the new record for a production car after reaching 270.49 mph on the space shuttle’s landing strip. “At that speed,” writes the website, “former race driver Brian Smith was covering nearly 400 feet per second while eclipsing the previous record of 268.86 mph held by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.” Impressive. And since this amazing ride is a 1,244-horsepower beast crafted from the Lotus Exige, and a 7.0-liter Corvette ZR-1 engine with a pair of Read More
