It is amazing how much environmental awareness is becoming an important part in developing new concepts, especially when it comes to vehicles and machinery we use in our daily lives. TOYOTA have come up with an innovative concept: the iROAD, an ultra-compact electric vehicle with only three wheels built using the latest technologies, used mainly for short distance city driving. The iROAD combines the best of both worlds, the convenience of a motorbike yet the efficiency and comfort of a car.
With the iROAD, one will be able to navigate even the narrowest roads, which will lead to less congestion and less need for parking spaces.
Last week, TOYOTA put out the iROAD on the roads of Japan, and the local residents were amazed at the experience. The iROAD will also make an appearance in Grenoble in France at the end of 2014.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Toyota. The opinions and text are all mine.
American art dealer Kenny Schachter has commissioned British architect and Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid to create this all black, 7.5 meter vessel, the limited edition Z Boat. Only 12 boats and 4 prototypes will be built and ready for your purchasing in 2013. The boats will be manufactured in France by Shoreteam.
“The asymmetrical design is sculptural in appearance while practically affording more seating accommodations. In a sense, the bespoke boat is as much a work of art as a Cisitalia sports car in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The idea is to think of vessels and vehicles as highly individualistic expressions of art, architecture and design reflecting the edge of what is possible using the most advanced means, including materials, software systems and methods of fabrication.” – Zaha Hadid Architects

While the SLS brought back to life the iconic 300 SL, the new SLS AMG Roadster is the convertible version of car and once again impresses. The compact fabric soft top of the SLS AMG Roadster opens and closes in just eleven seconds, and can be operated on the move at speeds up to 50 km/h.
