…Hockem is sitting with an attitude?

Hockem Trick

It’s difficult to create a new sport from scratch, but SALZIGdesign is trying to do just that with Hockem.

The sport is based around the use of a Sporthocker, which is equal parts sports equipment and furniture.

Sporthocker

Tricks involve casting, catching, balancing and (of course) sitting on the Sporthocker, with the end of a move signified by the sit. Think of it as a combination of skateboarding, parkour, hacky sack, flatland BMX, and… sitting.

Right now Hockem appears to only be popular in its birthplace of Germany, and perhaps a few other European countries that the Hockem team has traveled too, but given the relentless quest to find the next best thing and get it sponsored by RedBull and added to the X Games, I can only imagine that it’s just a matter of time before this extreme seat makes its way to the US.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Citreonarri?

Citreonarri

What has the heart of a Ferrari F355 and the soul of a Citreon 2CV? (and reminds me of this creation?)

This creation, which is the result of the Nimik Rally Team having a few too many beers and drawing a few too many ideas on the back of a napkin.

Citreonarri Detail

There aren’t a lot of details about the car, but when you bring together two cars from such opposite extremes, there shouldn’t be much that needs to be said.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: ASMA Perfectus?

ASMA Perfectus SLR

When ASMA Design got their hands on the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722, they created an all-carbon-fiber monster called the Perfectus.

Featuring 700hp, a top speed of 216 mph, highly stylized fender flares that make the car more than 2-meters wide, and one-off ASMA rims, it’s a little extreme for most, but when you’re dealing with the world of tuner supercars, the limits are often pushed beyond belief.
