Auto Fabrica took an old BMW and made it a perfect 10. The Auto Fabrica Type 10 ($CALL) has a clean, minimalist look we all love in our racers. The whole project started with a 1980s BMW R80. Once they got the R80 into their greedy little hands, they stripped it down to its bare bones. They ended up keeping the factory tank but addressed the bike's stance by lowering the front end. They wanted the bike to hold a second rider, but they didn't want to hurt the bikes looks they worked so hard to get right. The solution was removable passenger begs and hidden mounts. Additional customizations include simple stainless steel pipes, a modified airbox, and updated brake lighting and indicators. The final presentation is simply perfect.
The BAC Mono Supercar ($162,000) is the latest entry into the street legal track car category. The car is built by Cheshire based Briggs Automotive Company.

All this allows you to focus on driving instead of hitting the grove when shifting. Just a flick of a finger on one of the two paddles takes care of business.
The new NASA Mars Rover Concept Vehicle ($NFS) looks like it came out of the latest post-apocalyptic Mad Max flick. This futuristic concept was recently unveiled at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. They wanted to use it to inspire and educate as NASA gets closer to actually reaching their goals of sending people to the red planet.This concept operates on a 700-volt battery powered by solar panels. The cool part is that it splits in the middle of the chassis. Where the front is designed for scouting with radio and navigation equipment. The rear section acts as a laboratory which can also disconnect for autonomous research.
