Exotic Cars: The BAC Mono Formula Style Streetcar

Via Scoop.itArt, Design, Social Media, Sex & Hangovers

The BAC Mono Formula Style Streetcar is one of the most exciting vehicles in recent memory. It isn’t built for grocery getting, it isn’t designed for dates, it was created with one purpose in mind– driving. This single-seat speedster cuts out all the bells and whistles of your typical luxury car and features a cockpit, four wheels, an engine and skin. As a result, the BAC Mono weighs just 1,188 pounds. That featherweight gets remarkable production out of a small 2.9L Cosworth engine that produces 280 horsepower. On the road, that’s good enough for zero-to-sixty acceleration in 2.8 seconds. At just $108,000 a piece, that’s a performance match with the Lamborghini Aventador at a fraction of the price.

Exotic Cars: Pagani Huayra

It’s not every year that the boutique Italian car manufacturer Pagani releases a new super car. In fact, it doesn’t even happen every decade. The Pagani Huayra is the latest flagship from the masterminds behind the Pagani Zonda, the current record holder for production cars on the Nürburgring. The Huayra takes the torch from the Zonda, hoping to continue to break records by carving up the concrete. The Pagani Huayra features a twin-turbo 700 hp engine that feels like overkill for a vehicle with a slight 3,000 pound curb weight. On the road, this Pagani will top out at 230 mph, faster even than that lovely Aventador above.

After letting Mercedes define the class with its CLS, then allowing rivals like Porsche and Audi to put their own spin on things, BMW is finally entering the “four-door coupe” market with the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe ($TBA). Available in 640i — with a 315 hp TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter 6-Cylinder engine good for a 0 to 62 mph time of just 5.4 seconds — or 650i — sporting a 445 hp TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine that improves the 0-62 mph 4.6 seconds — variations, it also offers up optional xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive, an eight-speed Sport Automatic Transmission, optional Integral Active Steering, adaptive LED headlights, a 10.2-inch dash-mounted HD display, 19-inch light-alloy wheels, rear-, top-, and side-view cameras, a next-generation heads-up display, a HiFi audio system, and plenty of other goodies

10+ Programs Designers Must Know

Via Scoop.itA Drunk Designer

There was an era when being a designer meant you owned a lot of paper, a bunch of fancy pens and had to work in a studio, be it yours or your company’s. These days everything has gone digital and paper and pens have merged into a computer, and a studio is just about anywhere. But somewhere during all of this modernization and computers redefining the industry, the simple pen and paper became a computer and hundreds of programs. The amount of programs an aspiring designer is told they need to know can be quite daunting. So, let’s take a look at the top ten programs that the modern designer must know or, at the very least, will find quite helpful.
