The CR-1 Carbon is 35 feet long and nearly 10 feet high

In today's world, we're surprised to see a high-end supercar that doesn't include a bunch of carbon fiber in its design. Despite prices that can be just as high-end, the material is far less common in the camper/RV market. A few designs we've covered, like the XPCamper, have carbon fiber on their spec sheets, but it's not something you run into all over the place. In introducing a big, glossy black-carbon bus trailer that it calls the "world's first all-carbon fiber RV," Global Caravan Technologies brings a heap of carbon fiber to the market all at once.  Read More

The tubing in this frame may look like it's made from regular ol' bamboo ... but it isn't

That being said, some designers still find that the random nature of pure bamboo makes it a little too unpredictable for producing frames of a consistent character and quality. That's why two frame builders have developed some interesting work-arounds.  Read More

First introduced into rally racing in 1980, Audi’s AWD Quattro system has become synonymous with all wheel drive performance. Its AWD activities have since shifted from that of a rally-only diet to the arena endurance racing in the form of the championship winning R18 e-tron Quattro.
