  • Project of the damned -- Got €2,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Got a spare Nissan GT-R lying around? Then you, friend, are a perfect candidate for the Lambo-esque vertical door kit from German outfit LSD. (Yes, we've heard all the "they'll get you high" jokes.) Imagine: you'll get to  spend over $2,500 and you'll be the coolest guy in the parking lot at the Dokken concert. Rock. [Autoblog]
  • Hipsters, rejoice -- Just in time for summer, the MINI Cooper/Airstream/Republic of Fritz Hansen mash-up we mentioned back in March has finally become a reality.  So all you hipsters, pack up the PBRs and the ironic fedoras and head outta town. Please stay there. [Carscoop]
  • On a technical note -- Q: How do you get a Porsche Panamera to the 94th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center? A: In an elevator. It's not a joke. [WorldCarFans]
  • Party hearty -- Need to throw a theme party? What could be awesomer than renting a replica of the Delorean time machine from Back to the Future? Dude, it totally comes with a driver, and the guys who own it donate part of your rental fee to the Michael J Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research. It's like two for one. Plus a time machine.

  • New bling alert -- A company from South Korea called NeoView Kolon is touting its new "organic light-emitting diode" or OLED technology. It's like the LEDs we're seeing on the outside of vehicles, but it's intended for dash displays and such. The OLEDs live on a transparent film, which creates a totally different, Blade Runner-y effect than run-of-the-mill LEDs. Maybe those Back to the Future guys should know about this.  [MotorAuthority]
