If ever there was a car that existed solely for the sake of design, it’s the hand-crafted FD created by moto custom builder, Fred Krugger. With a focus on retofuturism and art deco style, the pseudo-open wheel racer is almost more of a sculpture than a car. Named for its surely affluent clients’ surnames, François Fornieri André Dupont, the FD has unique ovular wheel housings and similarly shaped headlight and taillight surrounds, as well as exhaust trim. Perhaps the most interesting aspect is the single-seat cabin that has an executive-style driver’s throne sans cushioning and instead is constructed out of wood. Hell, it even has flanking armrests. We’re not even sure how you don’t slide around like a tuna on a deck with the big Bentley-sourced 750-horsepower V12 engine tossing you to and fro. The radical racer will show up at the Dream Car Exhibition at 2020’s Brussels Motor Show from January 10th through the 19th.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
