The only one Italian-made Corvette

As already known that the name of the Chevrolet Corvette always known as an American muscular car, with a body design that is not less muscular and always be dreamed in its homeland. However, the charm of the V8 engine's Chevrolet Corvette mainstay just seems not enough to attract consumers in Europe, where the typical European car has a more beautiful design.

Then in 1963, one Chevrolet Corvette C2 had to undergo a makeover to be more pleasing to the eyes of Europeans. The result, Chevrolet in cooperation with Pininfarina, a famous Italian automotive coachbuilder that used to design a Ferrari, which later gave birth to the figure of Pininfarina Rondine Coupe.

Unlike the Corvette C2 which has a body made of fiberglass, Pininfarina Rondinne has a metal made exterior, which makes its weight so increase, and control is also changed completely. The car's front overhangs are more longer, and the Corvette's typical pop-up lights are eliminated, and on the back there is nothing resembling to the original car, and it is more like a Fiat 124.

Inside, the car has a stock dashboard and seats, but attention to detail around the doors is exceptional. The door jams themselves are chromed and decorated panels are fitted. The greenhouse is quite bright due to the white leather upholstery and a large wraparound rear windscreen.
Because seeing the car's view which then triggered a fairly diverse responses, and finally made Chevrolet was reluctant to continue Pininfarina Rondine to the production line and now the only one ever made was sitting peacefully in the Corvette museum. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SUPERCARS.NET]

The design of ExoDyne Cross electric motorcycle is quite tempting. The idea is the electric motorcycle with naked motocross theme. The front fork section is taken from Suzuki RMZ250, and the rear shock taken of RM125. For the front disc uses a Brembo product and rear brakes are also taken from other Suzuki motorcycles.

Although this motorcycle is made by home made, but this bike is not built haphazardly. The shape of the tubular chassis is pure fabricated by the veterinarian. Meanwhile, to reduce the weight, in some parts are also equipped with carbon fiber panel, making the net weight of this motorcycle is only 113 kg.
Alan Cross's ExoDyne Cross powered by an electric motor capable of generating power as much as 11 kW. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2vVdd22)
As its powertrain is an electric motor capable of generating power as much as 11 Kw. The electric motor is placed on the rear hub(like Viar Q1) and make it can be ridden up to 60 km/hour. But unfortunately, despite being supplied by 48 lithium-ion batteries, but this bike is only able to roam as far as 20 miles for a single charge of batteries.

Now the last of the most eccentric though it is said to be sold to the public, but Alan Cross did not say how much it cost. This means that the price of this motorcycle is determined in a personal mutual agreement between Alan Cross and the prospective buyer. But there is one thing for sure, he said if the bike managed to sold, then the money will be used to finance his next project.
