Porsche has created numerous concepts over the years, but just a handful have never been revealed to the public, that is until…now. One of these vehicles is the Porsche 919 Street. Put simply, it’s the road-going version of its Le Mans hybrid race car from 2017 that makes 900-horsepower, complete with carbon-fiber monocoque. Unlike most hypercars, this one does not have a large rear ring in the back, but it does boast a full-width LED light strip.
Think of the Aznom Palladium as a cross between a Rolls-Royce and a truck. Why? First off, it’s based on the RAM 1500, but with a luxurious touch. Exterior features include a large front grille with vertical LED inserts, lots of chrome trim, sleek headlights, and a rear end capable of being rolled out like a giant drawer for access to the trunk. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine generating 710 horsepower and 701 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Industrial designer Alexandre Ferra from Paris realized that Santa may be in for a nice sleigh upgrade and what better company to get one from than France-based Renault? It’s officially called Santa Sleigh R.S. (Renault Sport) and looks like a supercar on snow runners. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much space out back for all the presents, so either a second sleigh would be necessary, or there would have to be a companion trailer.
The 2021 Audi RS e-tron GT prototype is the company’s latest all-electric car, and it’s a doozy. It’s based on the same electrical architecture as the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, which consists of a two-motor setup – one in the front axle and the other on the rear – that produce a combined 637 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 60 mph in a mere 3.5-seconds. The 93.4 kWh battery pack could be good for over 200-miles on a single charge, paired with a four-circuit cooling system to manage temperature based on driving conditions and power levels.
Aston Martin collaborated with architect Sir David Adjaye and Lightstone, one of the largest privately held real estate companies in the US, to develop a luxurious collection of five exclusive homes at 130 William, New York City’s new residential development. In addition to the stunning home, each owner will also get a Sir David Adjaye designed 130 William Adjaye Special Edition Aston Martin DBX.
The homes are located on the 59th and 60th floors of 130 William and each home features a private, expansive outdoor loggia spanning the entire length of residence.
