…Diesel’s new watch is a freak of nature?

Diesel Freak Of Nature

Diesel’s new DZ4160 watch (aka the Freak of Nature) is definitely an interesting take on the timepiece.

Can’t decide between leather and steel, gold and silver, or futuristic and simplistic? Easy, just go with all of the above and stop worrying about what’s on your wrist.

The split-faced hybrid watch is half of one watch and half of another, and it’s all been crammed together and combined to give you the best of both worlds.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Project Sipster?

Project Sipster

A 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit doesn’t seem like a likely candidate for a Tuner Tuesday nomination, but when Top Gear gets their hands on it, the result is going to be anything but ordinary.

Thus, what you see here is Project Sipster, a car that they wanted to go 0-60 in just 7 seconds, get at least 70 mpg, and cost less than $7,000 to duplicate.

Project Sipster Engine

To reach those magic numbers, they yanked the engine out, replaced it with the diesel engine from a 2002 Jetta, and then tuned the engine, body and suspension for a more powerful yet more economical ride.

So did they pull it off?

You’ll just have to watch the video and see:

Who says saving the planet has to be expensive, difficult, and not fun?

…Diesel is making XXX SFW?

Diesel SFW XXX

Diesel is celebrating their 30th Anniversary with a bang by throwing 17 parties in 24 hours in places like Tokyo, Beijing, Dubai, Athens, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Milan, Munich, Paris, Oslo, Stockholm, Zurich, London, Sau Paulo and New York.

Diesel XXX Party

The line up includes Mark Ronson, N*E*R*D, M.I.A., David Holmes, Chaka Khan, New Young Pony Club, and more.

However, regardless of how much fun the parties are, the best part of their anniversary will still be the invitation!

By taking ‘70s porn clips and (kinda) editing out the naughty parts, they created Diesel XXX, a semi-SFW video that shows you all the fun you’ll be having if you come to their party:

Just don’t forget to bring a favor!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Audi R8 V12 TDI LeMans?

Audi R8 V12 TDI LeMans

Though the US is still having trouble wrapping its head around the power and potential of diesel, Audi seems well aware of what it can do, and has developed the R8 V12 TDI LeMans concept car to help them strut their stuff.

Featuring “the first 12-cylinder diesel engine in a high-performance roadgoing sports car”, it generates 500 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque, propelling the car from zero to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds, with a top speed of well over 186 mph.

Peak torque?

It’s reached at just 1,750 rpm, meaning “effortless acceleration” that is without rival.

Thus, the question becomes: Would you switch gas pumps for a car like this?

My guess: Yes, yes you would.

…Diesel’s Signature Collection looks great?

Diesel Signature Collection

The Diesel Signature Collection is a bold and beautiful set of watches that emphasizes multiple dials and a lot of face.

The leather band is a Diesel standard, so you’ve got to like that look, but washed up rocker has never looked so good.
