Is the Mercedes Benz Ener-G-Force Concept ($TBA) going to be the G-Class replacement in the future? The G-Class originally hit the market in 1979 and since has acquired Legen - wait for it - dary status. The GL series was supposed to kick it to the curb and it couldn't do it, but newer stricter country regulations may soon force the G-Class off the assembly line for good. The G-Force has a combustion engine that is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell and has four in-wheel electric motors. It uses a hydro converter that is fed by water from tanks on the roof. Whether or not the Ener-G-Force or pieces of its tech ever hit the market is still up in the air, but if it ever goes into production I want one. Check out additional pics after the break.(more…)

The 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show is the gift that just keeps on giving. Audi has gotten in on the action with the reveal of the Audi Nanuk Quattro ($TBA). The Nanuk is a high performance diesel coupe.

Many of the features look like they could easily translate into the the next generation R8. Check out more pictures after the break.(more…)
Okay, listen up, if you have the chance to be bigger, faster, thinner or stronger, which section will you read first? There are question thrown up, and answered, that you won't find anywhere else. For example, can you really reach your genetic potential within 6 months?, can you sleep for only 2 hours and perform better than after 8? and can you lose more body fat than a marathon runner by bingeing? The 4-Hour Body ($17) not your common garden variety diet and fitness book, this is the result of a decade long quest that verged on obsessive, to hack into the body to see what really makes it tick. A quite extraordinary book that will make you evaluate your own way of life.
