Chanel Customized Motorcycle

Karl Lagerfeld was spotted this past week at the Chanel boutique on Rue Royale in Paris, shooting the press kit for Chanel’s pre-spring collection entitled Starting Point. The shoot was not only intriguing because of models Lara Stone and Baptiste Giacobini, but also because of the appearance of a custom designed Chanel motorcycle, customized for the famed fashion house in Toulouse, France.

Prachtige Lamborghini Concept


Iranian designer Emil Baddal’s portfolio contains concepts that span several exotic auto marques. He dubs this model the Prachtige Lamborghini. The Prachtige takes styling cues from both the LP560 and Reventon, including the louvered engine cover, pointed nose, and center-exit exhaust. Baddal’s concept pushes signature Lamborghini styling even further than the limited run Reventon, with wildly flared front and rear openings paired with huge wheels and LED lighting.

When the words ‘Porsche’ and ‘motorcycle’ are mentioned in the same sentence, it’s usually in connection with Harley-Davidson: first the abortive Nova project of the 80s, then the VR1000 racer in the 90s, and finally the Revolution engine that appeared in the V-Rod in 2001. But Porsche first dipped a toe into motorcycle design in the late 70s, releasing this little-known Motorcycle Study. Somewhat surprisingly, the makers of the 4.5L V8-engined 928 wanted to highlight the motorcycle’s superiority in energy use, air pollution and traffic space. “Comfort, safety and protection from mud and water were prime considerations, not the usual fascination with speed.”

Projected weight is under 450kg, and incredible performance can be achieved using minimum mechanicals. The faceted shape is a direct result of its panelized construction.
