World Premiere for the New Akrapovič Full Moon Concept

 Full Moon 02

Akrapovič has officially unveiled its brand-new Full Moon concept motorcycle at the Bad Salzuflen Custombike Show in Germany in front of a captivated audience of show visitors, journalists, photographers, and selected guests.

This stunning new concept has been developed with the assistance of Slovenian Dreamachine Motorcycles—the same partnership that produced the legendary Morsus in 2011. Like its predecessor, the Full Moon is an extravagant, technically exceptional, promotional bike from Akrapovič.

Full Moon 05

Designed to be a continuation of the Morsus story, the Full Moon has a personality and characteristics completely different from its predecessor and has been designed to excite anyone that might not have been impressed by Akrapovič’s first prototype machine—if that were at all possible!

This concept machine was developed to avoid being categorized, and as such is a bike that belongs nowhere and everywhere, making it a unique motorcycle. The name comes from the huge aluminum and carbon thirty-inch front wheel, which is completely visible, giving the impression of a full moon and making a huge statement of what this bike is about. Over eight hundred hours went into creating this superbly finished machine, which features an S&S Knucklehead 1,524 cc engine and two modified custom-made Akrapovič exhausts. The frame and bodywork are made entirely of sheet metal and form an extension to the exhausts. The bodywork is thus part of the Akrapovič exhaust system—an integral part, in fact—and the bike itself is essentially an exhaust.

The thirty-inch composite wheel is not found on other custom bikes, and another innovation is a composite braking disc, also unseen in this size on motorcycles until now. The steering is completely automated, which allows a minimalist steering rod without any visible cables that would otherwise be required for the bike to function. The Full Moon can also stand upright when parked, courtesy of its hydraulic suspension. This is an extremely technically advanced motorcycle, full of unique elements that were carefully chosen to make the bike totally exclusive, and the shape hides completely new solutions used on a custom bike for the first time. The Full Moon is like no other bike out there now, and Akrapovič is very proud of it.

The Full Moon is now the star attraction at the Akrapovič booth—which also features all the latest state-of-the-art Akrapovič custom bike exhausts—at Bad Salzuflen, where it will remain until the end of the show, before heading off to be showcased at many other events, exhibitions, and fairs.

Range Rover by Lumma Design

Range Rover LWB by Lumma Design 2

LUMMA Design already offers successful car body kits for the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport in many different versions. LUMMA Design is the first tuner to offer a broad-build body kit for the Range Rover long version type LWB (Long Wheelbase), with a wheelbase elongated by 20 centimetres as compared to the “normal” Range Rover.

The front of the new LUMMA CLR R wide-body Range Rover LWB is characterised by a powerful front spoiler bumper with awe-inspiring air inlets, LUMMA-typical LED-double daytime running lights and double headlights just above the lane. In addition to this, LUMMA Design gives the Range Rover a new front grille and a full-carbon sport look motor cowl with central air exhaust openings.

The counterpart at the rear forms a rear bumper with integrated diffusor. The latter does not narrow down the useful value of the Range Rover, since the part can be removed in just a few steps so that any trailer coupling present can be used without limitations. To the right and left of the diffusor, two trapezoid chrome end tube covers of the “Supersound” sports exhaust system were integrated into the LUMMA Design rear apron cleanly and accurately. The LUMMA Design wheel-arch enlargements and door attachments – in the very best sense. The combination makes the long version of the British luxury off-road vehicle about 50 millimetres wider – on either side, of course!

LUMMA Design offers the perfect solution in its in-house LUMMA CLR 22 rims that rotate in the XXL-size 12×22 inch all around in the illustrated vehicle. In spite of their immense size, they look quite delicate. The fashionable one-part units were covered in Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta SUV-tyres size 305/35R22. Optionally, the illustrated vehicle has various exterior surfaces in a reflecting chrome design that are also available in exposed carbon as an alternative. All conversion parts are naturally also available for the “short” Range Rover version with a normal wheelbase.

Terrafugia TF-X : A Flying Electric Vehicle Vision

Terrafugia tfx

Terrafugia TF-X is designed to be the flaying car for all. It’s a “practical realization of the dream of countless visions of the future” says the Terrafugia’s release. The latest project of Flying car is based on Safety, Simplicity and Convenience. The TF-X should be statistically safer than driving a modern car, capable of automatically avoiding other air traffic, bad weather, and restricted and tower-controlled airspace. Learning how to safely operate a TF-X™ vehicle should take an average driver no more than five hours.

In an emergency if the operator believes the TF-X to be incapable of auto-landing, the TF-X will have a backup full-vehicle parachute system which can be activated by the operator. If the operator becomes unresponsive, TF-X would automatically implement an emergency auto-land at the nearest airport, declares the Massachussetts Company.

Considerig other technical datas, the TF-X will be able to carry four people in car-like comfort. As a plug in hybrid plane with two 600-horsepower electric motors and a 300-horsepower fuel engine will have a non-stop flight range of at least 500 miles. It will fit also into a standard construction single car garage. The Terrafugia TF-X is able to recharge its batteries either from its engine or by plugging in to electric car charging stations.
