Lotus has a new superbike called the C-01. Designed by Daniel Simon, whose work you’ll know from Tron: Legacy, Oblivion, and Captain America, the bike balances the Lotus form of old with a decidedly modern finish.
Although Simon is more known for his concept work, and the C-01 certainly looks like a designer’s wild fantasy, the bike will actually go on sale:
the British company plans to produce 100 in partnership with German
manufacturer Kodewa. Previously, the two companies worked together on a
number of auto racing projects.
“The design process of the C-01 was a labour of love,” says Simon,
“we have worked hard to create a motorcycle with very distinctive
features such as a clean main body, an extremely low side profile, a
bold stance, a unique air intake, logical partline solutions and clean
graphics.” Available in three liveries, including classic British racing
green and the Martini colors, the 400-pound bike will pack a 200hp
four-stroke engine. There’s no price just yet, but expect the C-01 to be

Mercedes-Benz may have phased out the G-Class SWB back in 2011, but
that hasn’t stopped Brabus from introducing a brand new upgrade kit for
the defunct three-door SUV. Making use of the G500 BA3 Final Edition,
the customized G-Class bears the Brabus Widestar body kit and sits on
22″ nine-spoke Monoblock E alloy wheels as beautiful red and black
leather coats the interior. Given the “6.1″ designation, the vehicle
likely boasts a healthy increase in power over the 388 hp and 391 lb-ft
of torque of the original 5.5 liter V8.
The Dottling Guardian is a watch safe that is so secure, a thief could take a sledgehammer to it without gaining access to the valuables inside.
This multi-walled safe shaped like a cylinder, as it has been described, features an outer shell covered in leather and a top-secret carbide component which boasts extremely high durability, close to that of a diamond. The mobile safe also includes “several layers of highly tear-proof and cut-resistant aramid carbon-fiber fabric”, a material used at the manufacture of bulletproof vests.
The innermost and outermost walls, on the other hand, have been crafted from polycarbonate, a material also used in anti-riot helmet visors and shields. The same aramid carbon-fiber fabric was also used for the door of the safe, which is accessible via a 3-digit code. The lock is, in turn, pretty complex, boasting a mechanism with high-gloss polished steel bars which slides out.
There’s also a pretty decent amount of customizations available for the Guardian. For example, the glossy stainless steel handle brackets can be engraved, while the exterior of the safe can be picked by the customer from all sorts of fabrics and finishes.
Measuring 14.5 inches long, the Guardian comes with a handle, shoulder strap and can even be placed inside suitcases.
Located near the norwegian village of geilo, Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter has designed a family home which presents a contemporary interpretation of vernacular building techniques.
The brief for ‘split view mountain lodge’ called for a four bedroom
dwelling which offered distinct living and dining areas, in addition to a
youth lounge and a mezzanine level for the younger children. The
response is an elongated cabin clad in a continuous timber skin which
envelopes the structure’s façades. The wood will fade to a grey patina
over time, allowing the building to blend naturally within its setting.
Internally, the varied use of internal levels allows the building to
adapt to the plot’s gradient, while a separate annex forms an extension
of the main lodge. One accesses the cabin beneath the cantilevered
glazed volumes, entering a hall with polished in-situ concrete floors. A
wooden staircase ascends to the generously proportioned living
quarters. The kitchen forms the centerpiece of the home, where a
countertop of glass fiber reinforced concrete is cantilevered into the
center of the space. Further steps then lead to elevated living and
dining areas, which provide occupants with a suitable degree of privacy.
The extruded structure composes sweeping views, while carefully
positioned smaller apertures provide glimpses of the immediate
