Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport Concept

Volkswagen surprised visitors at this week’s 2015 Wörthersee Tour with a high-performance concept car based on its humble Golf hatchback – Golf GTE Sport. It’s a concept that previews the future direction of performance-oriented Golfs. Built almost entirely from carbon fiber, and looking light it’s delivered right from the future, this plug-in-hybrid is powered by three different engines. There’s a 1.6-liter gasoline powered engine making 295 horsepower, while two electric motors produce 114 horsepower, giving the vehicle an overall output north of 400 ponies. The GTE Sport can run on nothing but electric power, with a range of roughly 50 kilometers. The two-seater is equipped with a pair of swing up doors, and a race-worthy cockpit that’s sure to have automotive enthusiasts foaming at the mouth.

Exploded Views of Classic Sports Cars by Fabian Oefner

Swiss artist Fabian Oefner is the best known for capturing moments in time typically invisible to the human eye. This time he represents two new series of his trademark work at MB&F M.A.D. gallery. Both projects, “Disintegrating” and “Hatch” are carefully and meticulously handcrafted images of classic sports cars, exploded, dissembled and dismantled in space. “What looks like a car falling apart is in fact a moment in time that has been created artificially by blending hundreds of individual images together. there is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment…freezing a moment in time is stupefying”, Oefner explains.
