…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Bowler Off-Road Nemesis GT4?

Bowler Off-Road Nemesis

Sure, it shares a grill with Land Rover, but that’s where the similarities end between the Bowler Off-road Nemesis GT4 and its British born brethren.

Designed to be a ‘road-going’ version of their Dakar-ready racer,

‘It’s going to be as close as we can get to the rally car,’ said Rob Critchlow, Bowler’s international sales manager.

‘It’s never going to be a luxury car – it’ll be a sport-derived sports car but with climate control and leather bucket seats from Recaro. And it’ll be stormingly fast.’

It better be!

Specs include a supercharged, 4.2-litre Jaguar V8 making in excess of 500 horsepower, a ‘slightly’ tuned-down suspension (when compared to their full racer), four sets of sports seats, an advanced tubular space frame, fuel cell, and climate control to keep the desert heat at bay.

Want your own Dakar-ready racer?

Better hurry: Bowler only intends to make 50 per year, and with a price tag expected to be in the region of $190,000, you’ll probably want to live somewhere in or around the UAE before opening up the checkbook and considering a purchase like this, since it’s not a like you’ll want to plow this thing through Los Angeles traffic on a daily basis…

Over, maybe; but through, definitely not.

…It’s Movie Monday: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog?

Dr. Horrible\'s Sing-Along Blog

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is “the (true) story of Dr. Horrible (wow, really?), a low-rent super-villain trying to get into the Evil League of Evil, defeat his boorish nemesis, Captain Hammer, and win the girl of his dreams, Penny (or at least talk to her)”.

Joss Whedon directed the film, Neil Patrick Harris trained his acting talents to the main character, and the goal is to test out a new type of video format that is professionally produced and designed to spread virally.

It’s only available for a few more days though before going iTunes exclusive, so make sure you watch it now and see what all the fuss is about.
