A unique French two-wheeled car called Pagnon Mauto

In its development after World War II, in France had ever developed a two-wheeled vehicle style called a mauto (two-wheeled car). This style presented a unique scooter figure made by Armand Pagnon, a railcars development engineer worked for Renault. In his spare time, he built this mauto-style scooter by his-owned hand in his Nancy-located garage in 1955.
1955 Pagnon Mauto unique scooter built by Armand Pagnon while sat on display at the Auto Motocycle Museum, the French's Châtellerault-located bicycles, motor-cars, motor bikes and scooters museum. (Picture from: Stabilcar)
Actually, there's no official name for the scooter model, however here we will refer to it as the Pagnon Mauto (as a homage to its maker). After completion of construction, then the scooter was shown on display and presented to the public for the first time at the 1957 Salon de l'Automobile de Paris (Paris Auto Salon). 
1955 Pagnon Mauto unique scooter has been designed in such a way with a high windshield and proper front shield that the rider and passenger (if any) are effectively protected of the wind and rain exposure. (Picture from: Stabilcar)
This Pagnon Mauto has been designed in such a way that the rider and passenger (if any) are effectively protected of the wind and rain exposure. This is because the the scooter design adopts a unique appearance with a seating position in short distance from the floor, coupled with a high windshield and proper front shield.

For the bodywork of this unique scooter, Pagnon then gave the to the Eslassant company that specializes in the production of racing cars by using the moulding machine. The Pagnon-made scooter is powered a 125 cc two-stroke engine from Ultima (Lyon), which is coupled with a 4-speed manual transmission system which is operated through the right-handlebar.
1955 Pagnon Mauto unique scooter adopted a rear wheel drive system with universal joint of cardan types, and what makes it at glance similar to a car. (Picture from: Stabilcar)
The scooter adopted a rear wheel drive system with universal joint of cardan types, and what makes it at glance similar to a car. And for its suspension system, in the front with the thrust wheels and Neiman ring. While in the rear features a deformable parallelogram and a triple of Neiman rings. And the steering is moved to the back by a cardan coupling as well. There is something confusing about the scooter riding, when you turn the handlebar to the right, it leans to the left (considered could be dangerous).

This may be due to the fork designs so that movement is transmitted to the handlebars with a cardan clutch, but most importantly, if we believe the sketch published by the "scooter review", this fork hunt is not a good fit. However this did not prevent Armand Pagnon, the builder from taking the Metz-Paris trip to present the scooter at the 1957 Paris Motor Show along with his brother as a passenger in the back.
This three-wheeled vehicle had a similar design to the scooter mentioned before and also designed by Armand Pagnon. (Picture from: Stabilcar)
Besides designed and built this unique scooter like the one above, it turns out that Armand Pagnon also had time to design (only on paper) a three-wheeled vehicle had a similar design to the scooter above (called the Tri-Pagnon), but until today never been made into real one
.

This prototype is the only scooter made by Armand Pagnon, and after several decades it was restored by Yves Dumez, who later in the 1999 sold it to the Auto Motocycle Museum, the French's Châtellerault-located bicycles, motor-cars, motor bikes and scooters museum.

That's it, and if the article above is still considered inadequate or inaccurate, or if you have additional information relate to the Pagnon Mauto, please don't hesitate to let us know via the comments column below this article.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops.....*** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | STABILCAR | ALIENOR.ORG ]

The special T.50 hypercar made by GMA to tribute the F1 legend's Niki Lauda

Although the production of the GMA T.50 standard version has not started yet, some time ago, Gordon Murray Automotive back shaked the world's automotive fans by launching the T.50 race track version named the GMA T.50s Niki Lauda, its name was inspired by the Formula 1 legend's Niki Lauda.

After retiring, he had a chance to do business in the world of aviation by establishing the Lauda Air. He has also held several senior roles in Formula One management at several teams. Thanks to his cold hands, he managed to bring Mercedes to recruit Lewis Hamilton, a talented young racer who later became world champion in 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. Niki Lauda died at the age of 70 in May20, 2019.

Such the standard version T.50 hypercar, the T.50s Niki Lauda has been designed and engineered without any compromised with more extreme specs. The 852 kg weighted race-track version hypercar is then supported by a Cosworth-engineered 3.9 liter V12 drivetrain which is also used on the standard T.50 but in a substantially redesigned version engine so capable of producing up to 725 horsepower.

Meanwhile there are splitters and dive planes attached that stand out enough to reflect the such design also had significant influences to the car's aerodynamics. At the same time, the purity of the shape of the T.50s is not suddenly lost, it remains elegant even though this hypercar was created with a special appearance only driving for the race track purposes.
The GMA T.50s Niki Lauda race track hypercar will only made in limited numbers of 25 units and sold for £3.1 million (Rp.61.4 billion) each, right after the standard version T.50 have been finished to be built. (Picture from: Id.Motor1)
"When we made the McLaren F1 GTR, it was developed from the F1 road car. From the beginning, the T.50s Niki Lauda, ​​was designed in parallel with the T.50. For the T.50, our target is clear, to make the best car for the road use. While for the T.50s Niki Lauda is just as clear, making it the best race track purposed car. In other words, we ask ourselves what is the coolest thing to drive on the track and create a track driving experience like no other car in history?" said the GMA's CEO, Professor Gordon Murray in his written statement.

Adler Trumpf Rennlimousine

Adler was a German manufacturing company was founded in 1880 by Heinrich Klenyer based in Frankfurt and has quite a lot of automotive productions and even aircraft engines. Besides produced various types of motorbikes, scooters are also known to have built some really unique and interesting cars before World War II.
1938 Adler Trumpf Rennlimousine's design adopted the Paul Jaray philosophy by using a feature called a 'spindle' shape inspired by the Zeppelin airship, and cutting it in half through the middle-line to form the car bodywork. (Picture from: Silodrome)
And on their list of employees, there's the name of Hans-Gustav Rohr, a brilliantt engineer who later in the 1938 developed the Adler Trumpf Rennlimousine uses a thermosiphon-cooled four-cylinder engine is utilized gravity-fed oil supply coupled with all-round independent suspension and front-wheel drive.

Although those engine only capable of producing about 56 horsepower and actually indicates that it is not a fast vehicle, but Adler managed to turn things by making its car more faster due to it has low drag coefficient. It could be happened, because the car design adopted the Paul Jaray philosophy by using a feature called a 'spindle' shape inspired by the Zeppelin airship, and cutting it in half through the middle-line to form the car bodywork.
1938 Adler Trumpf Rennlimousine's windshield is mounted completely curves nearly 180 degrees, this is to help direct the air around the car rather than above it. (Picture from: Flickr)
After done further testing and design, then it was concluded that greater stability could be achieved when the 'half-spindle' shape was tapered into flat wings on either side of the tapered rear. Meanwhile, at the front, the car's windshield is mounted completely curves nearly 180 degrees, this is to help direct the air around the car rather than above it.
1938 Adler Trumpf Rennlimousine built in limited numbers ie six samples and based on the Trumpf chassis, while each sample is a continuous evolution from the previous one. (Picture from: Flickr)
In the late 1930s, at least six samples of Rennlimousine (German for the racing sedans) were built on the Trumpf chassis, while each sample is a continuous evolution from the previous one. Besides it's tested, demonstrated and exhibited extensively at various events. They are also used in the competitions and for setting records. Sadly, the program was ceased by the outbreak of 2nd World War across Europe.

In the postwar years, there was a Trumpf Rennlimousine was found while driven like an ordinary car in Ansbach, Northern Bavaria and even registered by the owner and has a plate number of AB 549-485. That's so strange, given that it was a scarce car and made as a racing vehicle and should not be used on public roads.
After being traced and finally discovered, it turned out that the owner at that time had acquired it with a split front bumper, with the license plate in the center and two fog lights. It wore hubcaps over the front wheels and had aluminum strips on the nose and front fender openings. And after its restoration completed, then the car was sold to an American car collector and made its way across the Atlantic.

Since then this classic car has settled in America and has been meticulously maintained. The Adler authorities considered this to be the finest known Rennlimousine anywhere in the world. So it is believed going to fetch a suitably impressive amount (could be in the seven digit range) when it is sold in the auction event. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | HEMMINGS | CONCEPTCARZ | QUIRKYRIDES | GRAFZEPPELIN | SILODROME ]

The flying scooter in between reality and fictional

'Flying like a bird,' may be one of humanity's longstanding obsessions. And now maybe part of that obsession has been fulfilled with the invention of the airplane. Why only partly, because humans always try to develop it continuously up to a certain point of achievement which is considered to be the most recent or become what it should be. When was that accomplished? No one knows.
Vespa Alpha played a role as the Dick Smart's sophisticated rides in a spy action movie titled 'Dick Smart 2.007' released in 1967. (Picture from: Gensindo)
In the context of the scooter, which we know as a two-wheeled vehicle that experienced its heyday in the 1950s and 1960s, has there ever been the creation of a flying scooter, both fictional and reality?

In fiction, this has been illustrated by a well-known Belgian writer named André Franquin in his famous comic strips entitled 'Spirou et Fantasio' which published from 1947 to 1969. Well, in those comic strips he illustrated neatly a yellow-colored flying scooter named Zandajet
The amazing Zandajet flying scooter model is built based of the André Franquin's comic illustrations and sat on display at the 2006 Exposition Le Monde de Franquin in Brussels. (Picture from: Meinekleinfabrik)
Although this  yellow-colored scooter can only fly in comic books, it has actually been brought to the real world in a 1 : 1 scaled model to homage to the author and has been exhibited at the 2006 Exposition Le Monde de Franquin which was held in Brussels.
Vespa Alpha built by Piaggio in collaboration with Alpha Willis, a British company for the shooting purpose of a movie titled 'Dick Smart 2.007' in the 1967 and now sat on display at the Vespa Museum in Tuscany. (Picture from: Gensindo)
In reality, there's an Italian company called Piaggio which is also known as one of the world's scooter pioneers as well as the largest and most successful scooter manufacturer to date turn out has ever made a flying scooter named Vespa Alpha in 1967. As we all know that before producing scooters, this Italian company is a manufacturing company that is familiar with the world of aviation until today.

The Vespa Alpha was built by Piaggio in collaboration with Alpha Willis, a British company for the shooting purpose of a movie titled 'Dick Smart 2.007', starring Richard Wyler, Margaret Lee, Rosanna Tapados in the 1967.
Only in the movie, the Vespa Alpha is described as having extraordinary abilities, not only can it be used to go fast on the highway, fly like a helicopter, it can also function as a submarine. (Picture from: Vespacountry)
The Dick Smart's sophisticated scooter built based of the Vespa 180 Super Sport and powered by 2-stroke single cylinder 180cc engine which in the standard condition is claimed able to run up to top speed of 105kph on the streets.

In the movie, the Vespa Alpha is described as having extraordinary abilities, not only can it be used to go fast on the highway, fly like a helicopter, it can also function as a submarine. The flying scooter's front is resembled like a tilapia fish. Moreover, there is a lamp that looks like a fish's eye and a hole in the muzzle is added as the fish's mouth.
Vespa Alpha built is built based of Vespa 180 Super Sport and powered by a single cylinder 2-stroke 180 cc engine. (Picture from: Arttrav)
Even though it looks like a helicopter, we believe that the Vespa Alpha cannot fly at all, especially if it is used as a submarine. As mentioned before, it built just for the movie making and furthermore its shape and condition are not proper being a flying vehicle or submarine. Yes, at least the scooter can still be used for speeding on the streets, if you look at the engine specifications. 
That's it, and if the article above is still considered inadequate or inaccurate, or if you have additional information related to the Piaggio's Vespa Alpha flying scooters, please don't hesitate to let us know via the comments column below this article. 

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MUSEOPIAGGIOMEINEKLEINFABRIK | VESPARESTORATION ]

Recently, there was a news said that Justin Bieber got a new super luxury car, after an American famous automotive modification house named West Coast Customs has finished the work to build a special car as be commissioned by the singer. And the entire process of working on this car ranging from design to completion has taken up to three years
.

Later its unique name teased our curiosity. Unfortunately there's no detailed explanation regarding its name. Does anyone of You had known why this futuristic car is named Uriel? We thought, there's a special background or even story that has connection with the owner/maker, or something else, so the car got such name. That's We don't know yet. If you know, We hope You willing to share with us.🙏
This Rolls-Royce 103EX concept has inspired the only-one Rolls-Royce Uriel creation made only for Justin Bieber. (Picture from: Carbuzz)
In short, this car modification project began when Justin Bieber was struck by the beauty and sophistication of the Rolls-Royce 103EX concept car which was first launched in 2016. Well, after watching it through the media, directly making him interested in owning it, but unfortunately his wishes could not be realized in the time, because the sophisticated car belonging to the British super luxury car manufacturer is not for sale due to it was still in the development stage, aka only a concept car.

But he did not give up and kept trying to make his wishes come true, finally he decided to realize it through the way of modification. Then he contacted and made intense communication with Ryan Friedlinghaus, the CEO of West Coast Customs, and then the process of building the dream car began by modifying or completely overhauling the world's famous singer's Rolls-Royce Wraith into a new looking car with a design inspired by the Rolls-Royce 103EX concept car.

For your information, the 2018 Rolls-Royce Wraith owned by Justin Bieber is an eighth generation car model priced at the US. $330,000 or approx of Rp.4.5 billion. This super luxurious car is equipped with a 6,600 cc turbocharged V12 engine and is capable of producing a maximum power of up to 624 hp and 800 Nm of torque. Then those engine power is transferred via an 8-speed automatic transmission system to drive its rear wheels.

As quoted of the Motor1, all the modifying process of the Wraith into the unique futuristic-styled car is always communicated with the manufacturer in Goodwood, England. And the work starts with a 3D scan of the exterior of Rolls-Royce to find out the exact shape of each body panel. Then these 3D scans are used to create for bespoke body kits prints.
Justin Bieber was accompanied by Ryan Friedlinghaus when he saw the Rolls-Royce Uriel for the first time after it was completed at the West Coast Customs. (Picture from: KabarOto)
Then the work was continued by the bodyworks experts to create the perfect shape for the car, before it was finish by painting it in gloss silver and matte gray colour to support the car's beauty. The most prominent thing from this modification process is the shape of the wheel covers that makes the car look like it's floating. The front and rear bumpers along the side body and fenders have been completely hand-engraved making them very exclusive.

Significant changes are also seen in the audio system used, considering that the owner of this super luxury car is the world's pop star. So what is then installed for his car is of course the best and the most sophisticated ones and is supported by a unique lighting system that includes hidden illuminations along the underside edges. The rims itself is given a touch of silver matte paint in contrast to the black used before. This creation creates the most striking car's effect in the dark. The result, it's looks like a flying car when running on the streets.

De Tomaso Automobili, an Italian automotive company founded by Alejandro De Tomaso in 1959 which is famous for the exotic sportscar productions. Since operating in the early 1960s, it has been noted that many sports cars have been produced.

And some time ago we discussed several cars made by De Tomaso Automobili, ranging from the classics like De Tomaso Mangusta, Pantera and others to the newest ones like the De Tomaso P72.
1964 De Tomaso Vallelunga sports car was the first De Tomaso's road car model. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2M6J39m)
So, on this occasion we will discuss one of the company made sportscars called De Tomaso Vallelunga which later became the famous Mangusta model base. The De Tomaso Vallelunga was a mid-engined sports car model manufactured from 1964 to 1968, and also said the first road car ever produced by those Modena-based automotive company.
1964 De Tomaso Vallelunga sports car is shown as a concept car at the Turin Motor Show in 1963. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2M6J39m)

When an automaker in collaboration with gamers designed a supercar

Not that many people know that Ford has an eSports division. Started in 2019, Team Fordzilla has more than 40 drivers spread across various European countries. Not only playing games, but this team also made a futuristic-style car named Team Fordzilla P1.
The Team Fordzilla P1 race concept car as the result of collaboration between the Ford Motor Company and the eSports gamers. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3attMc6)
The development let Ford’s eSports division partnered with Ford’s design department to create a virtual custom supercar known as the Team Fordzilla P1. Previously, they also used social media to get advice from fans about the seating position, cockpit style, and even the engine used. The concept model virtually had been debuted at the 2020 Gamescon in Germany.
The Team Fordzilla P1 race concept car is the first Ford's car to be built digitally ranging from the concept up to production without any face-to-face interaction. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3attMc6)
Since last August 2020, the Fordzilla P1 concept is still a digital display, but in January, 2021 Ford officially launched a concept version of the P1 as a real-sized model. Due to the pandemic the concept car said the first Ford's car to be built digitally ranging from the concept up to production without any face-to-face interaction and was realized in just seven weeks.
The Team Fordzilla P1 race concept car has very thick the GT's impression, as You can see starting from the pull of the front fender lines, the cockpit's slim body panel looks like it is floating supported by the rear wheels. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3attMc6)
As we can see, the exterior of the Ferdzilla P1 racing car was done beautifully by Arturo Arino, while Robert Engelmann was responsible for creating the interior, and both are known as the Ford designers. As all of the Fordzilla P1's production is led by Ford's design department, which is headquartered in Cologne, Germany.
The Team Fordzilla P1 race concept car has the driving position is also designed like a Formula 1 racing car in general so the racers can properly monitor various things related to the condition of the car and track and also able to receive data from the team. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3attMc6)
The racing concept car has a monocoque structure that can be relied on to appear and run like a land jet, besides that there is also a canopy that functions to protect the driver and co-driver. Then the driving position is also designed like a Formula 1 racing car in general.

However, so as not to interfere with the racer's visibility, the interior design is made in such a way so that the racers can enjoy the flow of the competition properly. This concept car is designed with dimensions of length 4,731 mm, width 2,000 mm and height 895 mm. While its front tires uses a 315/30-R21 profile and a 355/25-R21 for rear one.
Unfortunately, there's no further technical details were offered. It makes sense, due to the car on display just a physical model, not a real car that can be driven. *** [FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LEISURIAN | MIKESHOUTS ]
