alluring ariana

Hey Ariana, congrats on winning the 2018 Face of Origin. What’s the competition all about? Thanks! The Face of Origin is basically a fight to the death — think Hunger Games. Just kidding! So, it’s a talent competition that runs every year, during the rugby league State Of Origin series, and girls from all over Australia and New Zealand, each representing either QLD or NSW, are judged in a number of rounds including photographic and stage. Then there is a winner from each state and an overall winner. This year it was me! Why do you think you won? I got up on stage and just had fun! Confidence and stage presence always play a huge role. Are you a big rugby league fan? To be honest, it’s not my favourite sport but I do…

apollo ascending

Restricted to a limited run of 10 units, the Apollo Intensa Emozione is an example of a highly anticipated car coming not from monstrous companies with historical legacies (think Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche) but from smaller bespoke auto builders like the Germany-based Apollo, which was formed when custom-supercar maker Gumpert was acquired by a Hong Kong investor in 2014. The IE is a masterwork in weight reduction. Apollo uses the latest in advanced technologies and materials to minimise weight; the result is a carbon-fibre chassis that allows for incredible torsional rigidity. It features a monocoque for safety — also made from carbon fiber — which is similar to those found in Formula 1 cars. The entire chassis weighs just 231 pounds. All 10 units are spoken for, at a price of US$2.85…

the mclaren senna

For all the work McLaren Automotive has done in recent years to climb the supercar hierarchy, its reputation is still based on its success on the track. Worldwide, the brand is associated not only with the Formula 1 but also the most celebrated driver of modern times, the late Ayrton Senna. So it’s natural that the British automaker’s most performance-obsessed supercar is named ater the Brazilian Formula 1 icon. The McLaren Senna is an evolution of the groundbreaking 720S, starting with the Monocage III, a modiied take on the company’s carbon-fibre monocoque, which provides immense strength and rigidity despite its minimal weight. Each of the 500 vehicles will be given an upgraded iteration of the 720S’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V-8, tweaked to produce 789 horsepower, with all its power sent to the…

Denver’s Ecosse Moto Works builds precision-crated power cruisers using exotic components, like machined-from-billet-aluminum triple clamps, titanium exhaust, and carbon-fibre wheels and bodywork. Its most recent creation, the Founder’s Edition Titanium, features a 2.1-liter V-twin engine producing 175 horsepower, with a truck-like 160 foot-pounds of torque atop a titanium chassis. While most bikes powered by Harley-Davidson Big Twin–inspired engines are saddled with a cumbersome primary drive and transmission, Ecosse’s bikes use a compact custom case that brings the transmission four inches closer to the engine, leaving room for a longer rear swingarm and allowing for better suspension compliance and traction. The Founder’s Edition Titanium could be one of the world’s most exclusive bikes. This model truly lives up to Ecosse’s motto: sculptural industrial motorcycles.…

mechanical monster

Exceptionally fast, yet beautifully ugly, ‘Frank’ is essentially a two-wheeled mechanical version of Frankenstein’s Monster. Built by custom bike shop Classified Moto — known for building The Big Wheel motorcycle and Daryl’s bike from The Walking Dead. With an endless choice of junkyard, Classified chose the 2007 Triumph Speed Triple as a base, while also taking many parts from a Honda VFR800, among many, many others. In addition to the front STI Black Diamond tyre and aluminum alloy wheel, Frank rocks a (purposely) scary-looking 11-inch-wide ATV rear tyre — giving the bike a 40 percent street and 60 percent off-road blend, perfect for the beach or the bends. With over 130 horses, the engine inners remain stock, but there’s new exhaust pipework and an exposed sub frame, which hugs the…

“THERE’S ALWAYS BEEN THIS BOX FOR WOMEN TO FIT INTO. I WANT TO MAKE THAT BOX BIGGER.” Kelly Yazdi is thinking what I’m thinking. We’ve just picked up a pair of Indian motorcycles on the Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu. We’re supposed to shuttle them to downtown Los Angeles for a women’s motorcycle event there. Showing up at such mixers is certainly a part of the 27-year-old’s job, which can be loosely defined as follows: model, biker chick, event planner, brand ambassador. But a quick scan of the brake lights in an unrelenting line from Pacific Palisades to the city has inspired an audible. The words “We don’t have to go to downtown L.A.” have barely let her lips before I’m nodding in agreement and we’re blasting down the 1 toward…
