Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe

The Jaguar E-Type was once considered by Enzo Ferrari "the most beautiful car ever made," and we are inclined to agree. The Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe was a sleeker, prettier version, and only two were ever assembled including the rarest of them all – the 1963 Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe affectionately known as the 49FXN. Marco Diez was so taken with the car that he decided to make one himself. The stunning Low Drag you see here was unveiled at the 2019 running of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, and was built by Diez in collaboration with Fast Cars Ltd. and UK coachbuilders RS Panels. It took Diez eight years to bring his own E-Type to life, and the masterpiece has so many details, that most of the screws used were machined specifically for the project, while the interior was built far above and beyond the elegant standards of a Jaguar road car of the day. Feel free to drool over the images below...

ORFOS FLARE BIKE LIGHTS

The Orfos Flare Light is a lighting system developed by a Seattle bike commuter that, due to the city´s usual bad weather sometimes didn´t feel safe enough to take his bike out, for safety reasons.

Orfos Flare light was born a few years later. With a lighting of 300 lumens at the ba...
