A Car Beautifully Covered With Beads

In Wolfsburg, Germany, now flaunts a unique Volkswagen Beetle 1990 release, called Vochol. He is completely covered with beads, laid out in the form of ornament - the example of original art from the Huichol Indians of the people of Mexico. In the creation of the mosaic has been used 2,277,000 colored balls beads weighing 90 kg (and 16 kg of resin, which can withstand temperatures up to 200 ° C). This took more than 9000 hours of work of several artisans. After the end of the world tour plan to sell the car at auction. The money will go to support the Museum of Folk Art in Mexico City, Mexico.

The Worlds Fastest Electric Vehicles

We're fans of all things cutting edge, and that most certainly includes the gadgets that get you from A to B. In the world of vehicles, the newest and freshest offerings are all electric.

New products from Tesla Motors, Elon Musk's Silicon Valley-based electric vehicle company, are always a hit. But Tesla's not the only company producing super speedy high-tech vehicles; in fact, cars are just the tip of the electric-vehicle iceberg.

Take, for example, the JR-Maglev MLX01, an experimental magnetic levitation train developed in Japan. It uses magnets to move and stay on track, and is capable of topping 360 mph. Meanwhile, France's Train a Grande Vitesse uses old-fashioned wheels, but also runs on electricity, and has traveled as fast as 357 mph.

The spiffy looking Tesla Roadster Sport can hit 125 mph, but that doesn't even place it in the top two of fastest electric cars. A pair of electric motorcycles - the Lawless OCC Rocket Bike and Mission R - would also dust it in a drag race. The Roadster Sport, however, has them all beat on looks.

The infographic below, which comes courtesy of the British website carloan4u.co.uk, gives us a rundown of all the world's fastest electric vehicles. Tesla is represented there, along with the aforementioned “superbikes” and high-speed trains, but there are a few funky-looking suprises as well. Check out the full infographic for more; then let us know in the comments: Which futuristic vehicle would you most like to take for a spin?
