Porsche Mirage GT - matte black edition

I love cars...pretty much all a certain extent at least! Obviously, I tend to prefer the older vintage and muscle cars along with early 70's and prior super cars, but there are a few new ones out there that I really like as well...This is one of them...It's a Porsche Mirage GT in a matte black finish...Obviously, the whole matte or flat black thing has been done on pretty much everything with wheels at this point, but I think it looks pretty good here...

This one is rated at 650 bhp 0-100kph (that's basically 62 mph) in a hair under 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 335kph (or 208 mph)...not bad...haha!

Have a look:

Well, it's Monday...again!

Looks like the people over at CERN have decided to fire the 'ole Hadron Collider back up again...Apparently, when they tried to use the thing last year a weld broke and leaked gas everywhere...awesome! haha! Guess it's still not all that reliable, but it still looks cool:

A must have for everyone!

Happy Friday!

Hilter's Horten 2-29

Pretty interesting...

Top stealth-plane experts have re-created a radical, nearly forgotten Nazi aircraft: the Horten 2-29. This retro-futuristic fighter plane is recreated as part of a documentary last year to uncover the secrets of the technological advancement of the Nazi forces. A team from the Northrop Grumman defense-contracting corporation used original Nazi blueprints and the only surviving Ho 2-29, which has been stored in a U.S. government facility for more than 50 years.

The engineers' goal was to determine whether the so-called stealth fighter was truly radar resistant. In the process, they've uncovered new clues to just how close Nazi engineers were to unleashing a jet that some say could have changed the course of the war.

The Ho 2-29 looked more like today's U.S. B-2 Bomber. Made primarily of wood and powered by jet engines, the plane was designed for speeds of up to 600 miles an hour (970 kilometers an hour). Armed with four 30mm cannons and two 500-kilogram (1,100-pound) bombs, the planned production model was also meant to pack a punch. A Ho 2-29 prototype made a successful test flight just before Christmas 1944. But by then time was running out for the Nazis, and they were never able to perfect the design or produce more than a handful of prototype planes.

The first pic is supposed to be of the one that the engineers just recreated...Photo looks kinda fake, but who knows...The other pics are of original 2-29's:
