The most expensive coupe of the Bentley's history revealed soon

~Most EXPensive~ Regarding luxury cars, Bentley is an expert. Well, it seems that the British car brand is not satisfied with some of the expensive car products it has produced and offered. Most recently through its bespoke coachbuilder division, Mulliner, the British marque is allegedly working on a second model after the Bentley Bacalar (an ultra-luxury roofless car of only 12 units made, and launched of 2020).

As quoted of Autocar, the upcoming two-door luxury car won't be as exclusive as the sibling. Due to the number of production would be increased up to 25 units, and another difference between the two Bentley's cars is the fixed-roof presence and styling cues stemming from the Bentley EXP 100 GT electric-powered car made of 2019.

The design of the as-yet-unnamed car is supposed to be a window into future Bentley models without combustion engines, adopting cues that will be taken by pure electric vehicles from Crewe-based automaker. According to the same report, the front fascia will look aggressive with a more angular theme and a refreshed typical grille, flanked by sleek LED headlights.

Then fat wheel arches are also included in the plans for the new coupe, as are sleek taillights and other details that will set the car apart from the "plain" Bentley Continental GT.

Meanwhile, the person in charge of the exterior appearance was Andreas Mindt, who had previously designed the Bentley Hunaudieres in 1999, although the 22-year-old concept car was never produced, it played an important role in the Bugatti Veyron's design process.

Next up is the drivetrain, which is said to come from a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine also installed in the Bentley Continental GT Speed, and is said to be capable of 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque. With these settings, the high-performance coupe can sprint from still to 62 mph (100 kph) in just 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 208 mph (335 kph).
The Bentley Continental GT is reportedly based off a Rolls-Royce Phantom and is a one-off prototype. (Picture from: GTSpirit)
The same power and performance is also expected to happen in this new Mulliner Coupe. While it also built based on the Continental GT Speed with large 440mm carbon-ceramic front brakes, stiffer suspension and a modified chassis, and this luxury coupe could mark the beginning of the end for the W12 engine. Autocar got information from reliable sources that the twelve-cylinder unit would be phased out "shortly after the launch of the next Mulliner model (in 2023)."

How about the price? You might be a little surprised to hear that. The basic version, if we can call it that, will cost from £1.5 million (around Rp.28.4 billion at current exchange rates), and able to increase up to £2 million (approx Rp.37.9 billion). Well, with so many high-end upgrades done by the Mulliner, it would be made it the most expensive variant in the Bentley history. So better for us right now, just wait and see. Que sera sera. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR | CARSCOOPS | CARBUZZ | ID.MOTOR1 ]

The Supermarine is Bandit9's latest underwater-inspired motorcycle

~Mobula on the Wheels~ In the midst of intense business competition among business players in the automotive world, of course, more and different efforts are needed so that their products are seen, demanded and eventually purchased by customers. One thing that is often done by business people in this sector is to display automotive products in unusual and unique forms.
Here's the Supermarine is Bandit9's latest underwater-inspired custom motorcycle. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
There's a Vietnam-based custom motorcycle workshop named Bandit9 reveals to the world one of the most ambitious projects to date named Bandit9 Supermarine whose inspiration came from under the sea. Even its form is like a vehicle that came out of another galaxy.
The fairing of the Bandit9 Supermarine is made in such a way as to form the Mobula Ray (a type of stingray). (Picture from: Visordown)
Over the past decade, Bandit9 has been creating unique handmade motorcycles with futuristic designs. Even the results can not be compared with the custom iron horses on the market. It took one year to work on this model. Yes, they are not taking orders in 2020 and are only focused on working on this one big project. Here're several custom motorcycle made by Bandit9 that we've ever talked before.
The Bandit9 Supermarine's frame is inspired by coral reefs, which also serves to increase airflow in straights and downforce in corners. . (Picture from: RideApart)
Finally in October 2021 the custom workshop launched this unique shaped custom motorcycle. Many are fooled by the name. But it's not wrong if many associate it with the submarine thanks to its rounded shape. The custom workshop said that its unique custom-bike actually taken an inspiration from the marine creature called the Flying Mobula or the Mobula stingray. Sea creatures are known to like to penetrate the surface of the water when swimming, making it look like they are flying.
The coral-like frame is made of 7075 aluminum, which is commonly used in missiles and other military equipment, while the body is made of racing-specific ABS plastic. (Picture from: RideApart)
Designed to be a fast engine, allowing the Supermarine to cut through air with ease. The frame is coral-inspired, increasing airflow in straights and downforce in corners. There are 400 precision-cut components with the latest technology.
The Bandit9 Supermarine comes with Nitron suspension and Brembo brakes as standard, but also offers the possibility to pair it with Ohlins suspension and Berginer brakes. (Picture from: RideApart)
The shape of the body or body panels that are attached is very flowing, from front to back. It is offered in two material options, race-spec ABS plastic or use a carbon fiber body for the Supermarine. The overall frame is made of military grade 7075 aluminum, commonly used for the manufacture of aircraft structures.

Where Renault and TheArsenale are going, They don't need roads

~FLYing Car~ To celebrate a legendary car model anniversary, the car manufacturers sometimes do something unusual but still have a connection with the model. We can see this when the French manufacturer Renault celebrates the 60th anniversary of its legendary Renault 4L model.
Renault teamed up with TheArsenale to create an electric flying car called the Air4 to celebrate the legendary Renault 4L's 60th anniversary. (Picture from: TheArsenale)
For your information, actually Renault 4L was a simple, efficient and versatile four-wheeled vehicle made between 1961-1992. Amazingly, the Renault's iconic car from has sold more than 8 million units in more than 100 countries in a period of 30 years.

In the context of the anniversary of the legendary model, Renault unmitigated intends to make a futuristic flying car by using the Renault 4L as the model and called 'Air4'. To realize this desire, the French automotive manufacturer then collaborated with an American automotive design house, TheArsenal which is touted as 'the ultimate brand dedicated to the future of mobility.'

The collaboration between Renault and TheArsenale is not only about making flying cars, but has a very special value. Because this will make young people feel how to drive an iconic car, but not on the road, but flying. 
The Air4 flying car concept is made entirely of carbon fiber and is also designed to have dynamic capabilities for flight by using four propellers. (Picture from: AnakTeknik)
This is actually if you look deeper, it is in line with the concept of the automotive world in the future, where everything is fast and comfortable. Yes, it can't be helped, the roads are now crowded with vehicles and jammed everywhere, so flying cars can be one of the new breakthroughs for Our world today.

As mentioned above that The Air4 retains the retro design of the legendary Renault 4L and at first glance it looks far from the design language of a modern car. Physically, when compared to its classic conventional four-wheeled model, the Air4 is made entirely of carbon fiber and is also designed to have dynamic capabilities for flight by using four propellers.
The fact is that all of the work on the Air4 flying car concept was carried out at the first European' technology park at Sophia Antipolis, Côte d'Azur, France. (Picture from: AnakTeknik)
In the design, the engineers from TheArsenale always do it with full calculation in order to get satisfactory results. Another interesting fact is that all of the work on the Air4 was carried out at the first European' technology park at Sophia Antipolis, Côte d'Azur, France.
The Air4 flying car concept is driven by an electric motor powered by a 22,000 mAh lithium polymer battery pack with a total capacity of 90,000 mAh. (Picture from: Motor1)
From a technical point of view, the Air4 is driven by an electric motor powered by a 22,000 mAh lithium polymer battery pack with a total capacity of 90,000 mAh. The maximum duration of flight is one of the matrices that needs to be considered so as not to run out of battery in the flight. Until now, flying car makers (Renault and TheArsenale) have not stated yet about how long the Air4 can float in the air with minimum power.
The Air4 flying car concept will be on display at the Atelier Renault on the Champs Elysées in Paris, France, from November 29, 2021 through the end of the year. (Picture from: TheArsenale)
The unique flying vehicle relies on a horizontal top speed of 26 m/s during flight with a tilt angle of 45° to a maximum incline of 70°. The Renault Air4 is capable of flying as high as 700 meter with a takeoff speed of 14 m/s, but is held at 4 m/s for safety reasons, and a landing speed of 3 m/s. As you could be seen, the Air4 flying car concept itself has 4 propellers on each corner and offers a maximum vectorial thrust of 380 kilograms, or 95 kg per propeller.
For 60 years, the Renault 4 has been driven by ordinary people who make it extraordinary. It is a car that symbolises adventure. It’s simple, practical, useful and as modern as it is retro. All drivers will tell you, it allows you to travel differently. That is to say, to live an adventure.

The Air4 led us to 'some kind of traveling different' which also mean the Renault 4 is ready for its greatest adventure yet under the slogan 'Where TheArsenale and Renault are going, They don't need roads'. Today, the Air4 flying car concept will be on display at the Atelier Renault on the Champs Elysées in Paris, France, from November 29, 2021 through the end of the year. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RENAULT | THEARSENALE | MOTOR1 ]

Yamaha XSR 155 modified in modern flat track style

~Custom Built~ Customization is one way to change the appearance of a motorcycle to be different from the factory default. Almost all components are made by hand, without deifying the aftermarket accessories available in the market.

By utilizing the builders or experts to make a custom motorbike, some manufacturers are interested in changing their products to attract the attention of consumers. 

As has been done by the world's famous Japanese motorcycle brand Yamaha (in Indonesia) through PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) took in collaboration with several well-known custom motorcycle workshops in the country. And one of its latest custom projects is with Pap N Mam.

The Yamaha XSR 155 has a neo retro design that can attract attention, but in the hands of Hendra Cahyono of a motorcycle builder and owner of Semarang-based workshop named Pap N Mam, the Yamaha XSR was changed to a modern flat track.
Hendra said that the Yard Built event is a place for builders and modifiers to be able to realize their dreams of developing motorcycles, which are in accordance with their own wishes.“In this Yard Built program, I carry the Modern Flat Track concept. Through this creation, I can express my ideas and innovations as a whole. All ideas and ideas about developing the bike according to my wishes came true. It's like saying, this is really my motorbike," he said, quoted by VIVA Otomotif Friday, December 31, 2021.

In the process of changing, Hendra played a lot in the legs area. So on the legs the changes look very striking. So that it doesn't look short, then he adds or connects the wheelbase of the XSR 155 motorbike back up to 10 cm (extended swingarm).

Thus, the dimensions of the XSR 155 will be longer. To make it look more manly, Hendra pinned various knick-knacks on the XSR 155 he changed. For the appearance of the headlights and taillights, he carries the concept of a pop up style headlamp, where the lights can open and close automatically.

Then embed the exhaust header with titanium material equipped with exhaust valvetronic features and custom aluminum cylinders. And so that it looks macho even when parked, Hendra has attached a side standard that is equipped with the ESS (Electronic Side Stand) feature. "The reason is because in my work, safety features must still be considered. That's why I pinned the ESS feature on the side," as Hendra concluded then.
