Because they’re made in small batches by hand, most of the bikes at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show are ... well, they ain’t cheap. One in particular, the Italian-made Sarto 18K, had a price tag of US$27,000 when you could still get one. What would you get for that price? Gold and crocodile skin, for starters.  Read More

One of a handful of motoring events that attracts one of the most commercially-desirable audiences of high net worth individuals in the world, Gizmag looks at what to expect at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance and surrounding auctions. Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion car, Marlene Dietrich's Rolls Royce, plus 37 cars we think are capable of achieving a million dollars or more when they cross the auction block. What's more, you can watch the auctions on the internet for free. Captivating entertainment for enthusiasts.  Read More

With the Bugatti 16C Galibier a distant memory, the Continental GT from VW sibling Bentley remains the pinnacle of supercar-level performance blended masterfully with ultra-premium grand touring elegance.

There might be something in the water over at Mercedes right now. From the ultra luxurious Mercedes-Maybach S600 to the insane 6x6 G-Class AMG, Stuttgart’s engineers and product planners seem to be full of interesting ideas at the moment. Those same engineers seem to have done it again with the new G500 4x4 Squared, (or G500 4x42) a near-production G-Wagen show car fitted with a portal axle system that gives it greater off road capability.  Read More

The Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament will soon adorn a Rolls-Royce SUV

Rolls-Royce is a name synonymous with automotive luxury. And after 111 years of producing handcrafted sedans, coupes and convertibles, the company has now announced that its famous Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament will soon adorn "a vehicle that can cross any terrain", which we can take to mean an SUV rather than a tank.  Read More

The eye-catching FELINE ONE designed by Yacouba Galle

Swiss designer Yacouba Galle is trying to launch an ambitious motorcycle project for 2016. The Feline One is an 801cc, 3-cylinder, 170 horsepower bespoke streetfighter that uses exotic materials and a very strange looking twin-shock anti-dive front end suspension setup. At US$280,000, though, it had better be a lot more than the sum of its parts!  Read More

The Phantom Drophead Coupé 'Nighthawk' is part of Rolls-Royce's Bespoke collection

The Rolls-Royce badge has graced everything from luxury cars to nuclear reactors, but stealth aircraft have been a miss until now... sort of. As part of its Bespoke Collection, the upmarket car maker is showing off its high-tech street cred with its Phantom Drophead Coupé "Nighthawk". The limited edition aimed at the North American Market recently had its first public drive in Phoenix, Arizona and takes its cues from cutting-edge stealth aircraft.  Read More

In November, Mercedes Benz took the wraps off its latest go at reviving the Maybach marque and now it's handing out more details about the luxury sub-brand's S 500 and S 600. Less a car for driving than being driven in by your chauffeur, the new S-class features understated lines and is intentionally designed as a status symbol for the upper automotive crust.  Read More
