Hey Dessie and Kayla, congrats on your first MAXIM Australia feature together. Tell us a bit about the shoot. DESSIE: Believe it or not this is going to be my second feature with MAXIM Australia, but first with Kayla, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Myself, Kayla and the photographer Drew Dailey wanted to do something fun for Summer. So, we decided to use my friend’s yacht and get some killer shots in Newport Harbor in Orange County, LA. We’re super excited for MAXIM Australia readers to be the first to see this! KAYLA: I loved being able to shoot in a beautiful location and have fun with my best friend. We always have a good time. Well, you both look gorgeous. When do you feel sexy?…

blade runner

Lamborghini isn’t known for bowing down to others. Ever since Ferruccio (Lamborghini) told Enzo (Ferrari) where he could stick his cars, and decided to build his own, it's been doing its own thing. This car, the Terzo Millennio (third millenium), built with MIT, is the Lambo approach to an EV performance car. Supercapacitors, not batteries, will power this Italian Blade Runner.Being ultra expensive and not as energy dense, supercapacitors aren’t ready for the spotlight yet. But MIT and Lamborghini plan to produce one to work like a main battery, able to recharge and discharge lightning quick for brutal, explosive acceleration.The companies are also looking into carbon composite batteries and nanotechnology; meaning two power storage technologies into the same drivetrain; if possible, would store 100 times the energy of a…

ENGINE: 8.0 litre 16 cylinder TRANSMISSION: 7 speed dual-clutch automatic POWER: 1102kW TORQUE: 1,180lb-ft@2,000 rpm TOP SPEED: 420 km/h 0-100KM/H: 2.3 seconds PRICE: $3.7 million How does one improve on the Chiron? Well, the Frenchies behind it claim they have significantly improved the handling by producing a circuit-friendly package. It seems leaving well-enough alone just isn’t Bugatti’s wheelhouse.Bugatti engineers first tweaked the shock absorbers to get them 10% stiffer than standard, then gave the steering a refresh — though without compromising the ‘direct feel’. A Dynamic Torque Vectoring function was also introduced; which spreads out torque and assists agility during what their test drivers call ‘elevated driving’ - or what us regulars call ‘holy crap this is quick’.Eighteen kilograms have been removed from the Chiron, thanks to the lightweight…

fond memories

A classic BMW moto speaks to us like no other, and the 1934 BMW R7 Prototype is one of the greatest beauties of the pre-war era. With an advanced streamlined design and innovations such as telescoping forks, it was ahead of its time. Only one was ever made — and therefore inaccessible to everyone on the planet.Thank fully, a Florida design studio is changing that with their ‘Nostalgia’ project. A reboot of sorts, the Nostalgia rolls on a BMW R nine T chassis, and uses 74 handcrafted parts (many made of aluminum) to convert the stock bike into a ‘new’ R7. This includes a new 12 litre fuel tank and custom handcrafted stainless steel exhaust system. This project imitates vintage design by reincorporating the ignition lock and speedometer into…
