The all-new Ferrari Sergio celebrates more than 60 years of collaboration between the Prancing Horse and Pininfarina, the Italian design house that has styled the majority of Ferrari's legendary road cars. While not nearly as visually radical as the original Pininfarina Sergio concept presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the 458-based limited-edition Sergio production car has a distinct look and cranked up performance.  Read More

Top sports car concepts of 2014

Over the course of 2014, Gizmag has traveled to the major auto shows of the world in search of the latest cars and in-car technology.

Many of those concept cars have been ultra-powerful, aero-optimized sports cars ready to create a new generation of exotics. Here are our choices for the best of the best of 2014.  Read More

Trekkayak says that its design offers better directional stability than the packraft

Built to empower new adventures, the Trekkayak lets one hike deep into the wilderness and paddle his or her way back out. Joining a market of light, portable water sports gear that includes packrafts and seatrekking backpacks, the Trekkayak is an inflatable catamaran that packs fast and light in your backpack. When you get to water's edge, you simply unpack the boat, inflate it and paddle your way back home.  Read More

The Budii concept will debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show

Times are good for Swiss automotive think tank Rinspeed. After years of coming up with fun but improbable automotive novelty concepts like the sQuba diver and iChange shape shifter, Rinspeed is now able to focus on designs that might actually have an impact on an automotive market that's in a state of technological acceleration. Earlier this year, it took us inside the autonomous car with the XchangE, and next year it plans to show us how that car will be more than just a means of transportation. It'll be your best Budii.  Read More

The Bay+ has added deck rigging and a new graphic

Many foldable boat designs have passed through the pages of Gizmag over recent years – the Quickboat, the Foldaboat, the Adhoc and others. The Oru origami-style kayak seemed to be the one to make the biggest splash (yeah, bad pun), raising close to $450K (5x its goal) on Kickstarter and earning all kinds of media and industry attention, including a 2014 ISPO Product of the Year award. Rather than resting on its accomplishments, Oru has been listening to feedback and tweaking its foldable design, resulting in the all-new Bay+.  Read More

The Nubrella has been redesigned for better visibility and comfort

About four years ago, we took a look at the Nubrella, a hands-free wearable umbrella that looked like a rain-deflecting space helmet … only somehow bigger and goofier. Well, in those four years, we haven't seen a single person wearing one in public. Sensing a bit of that lack of enthusiasm, Nubrella's designers went back to the drawing board and came up with a new rain-deflecting space helmet design.  Read More

The Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattro

One of the biggest tech stories at this year's LA Auto Show was the fuel cell car. Toyota led the way by launching the Mirai, and Volkswagen slid a fuel cell powertrain into the Golf SportWagen. Audi showed a sportier, more luxurious side to fuel cells in the A7 Sportback h-tron quattro. Ingolstadt calls it the "first performance fuel cell vehicle."  Read More

Sometimes overlooked as a #3 in the German luxury car wars, Audi is making a determined push to get noticed. Over the past half-year alone, it's lapped the Hockenheim with a driverless car, discussed plans for introducing one of the market's first autonomous cars and shined lasers into the future. Now, it's provided a sneak peek at the future of its design in the form of the Prologue concept, and that future looks as bright as its laser headlights.  Read More

The ZR2 is Chevy's vision of a mid-size truck with enhanced off-road capabilities (Photo: ...

Think Los Angeles, and the first vehicle that comes to mind is probably a fast, powerful convertible along the lines of the new Ferrari F60 America. A pickup truck or SUV is likely to be well down the list. And that's largely how this year's Los Angeles Show played out with a whole lot of flashy cars. But truck lovers weren't left wanting entirely with a smattering of trucks on display, including the all-new Ford Explorer and Chevy Colorado ZR2 concept pickup.  Read More
