…Planes need more lights?

LED RC Plane

What does a remote controlled airplane that’s been covered in 30 meters of LED lights (1,800 individual LED blubs) and then flown at night look like?

A little something like this:

…Lufthansa Technik will pimp out your Airbus?

Custom Airbus A380

If you recently purchased an Airbus A380, but aren’t quite sure how to deck out the interior of your personal double-decker mansion in the sky, then give Lufthansa Technik a call and ask about their VIP Saloon.

The design is pure luxury, and since I can’t even imagine what the price of a regular A380 looks like, the price of a tricked out one is probably disgusting.

Regardless, they’ll have at least a few of these roaming the skies before you know it, so be on the look out for a plane with a few extra couches in it.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nelson Racing F-Bomb?

Nelson Racing F-Bomb

When you’re the Chief Editor of Hotrod Magazine, it’s not like you can just drive around in a Dodge Stratus.

However, the Nelson Racing “F-Bomb” 1973 Chevy Camaro that David Freiburger drives around might just take the opposite to the extreme.

Featuring a twin turbo, 406 cubic inch V8, it’s got 1540 HP and 1527 lb.ft. of torque on tap so that any time speed is an option, the go pedal is sure to provide plenty of it.

Besides the monster engine though, the car has also been caged and minitubbed for safety, and was stripped down to the bare metal before being powder coated with a fighter plane motif that I can’t get enough of.

F-Bomb indeed.
