Mattel superstar Hot Wheels is no stranger to tactical collaboration. This includes one-of-a-kind Hot Wheels computers, Hot Wheels Power Wheels, and other kid-centered adventure toys. Now Hot Wheels is sending out the wild’s call for big kids and adults in a joint effort with e-bike manufacturer Super73. The Super73-RX electric-driven bike looks to inhabit the Hot Wheels spirit, racing through cool gusts propelled by flaming pedals.  

The ride sports Super73’s most powerful and technologically advanced drive system with arrayed ride modes powered by a state-of-the-art 960 watt-hour battery, which translates to about 40 miles of riding at 20 mph. You can stretch that further by gearing into different pedal-assisted drive functions. Ultimately, you can ride the Super73-RX as far as you can crank it whether there’s any juice in the battery or not — it is a bicycle, after all.

The Super73-RX also offers a connectible electronics suite, compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices through the Super73 App. And with a black chain, black battery tank pads, a black steel rib panel, BDGR fat tires with bronze rims, all accentuated by Hot Wheels orange and blue, it’ll be the sharpest ride on the block and on the trail.

The customized Hot Wheels edition RX also flaunts a special Hot Wheels Ford Bronco diecast, custom-embroidered seat, handlebar pads by Saddlemen, Ruffian ATV Lock-on grips by ODI, Stamp 1 Large pedals by Crankbrothers, and a yellow-tinted headlight. 

To complete the collaborative project, every purchase of the Hot Wheels x SUPER73-RX will include a collectible Hot Wheels diecast of a SUPER73 Ford Bronco R model bike. Designed and manufactured by Hot Wheels, the graphics will match the RX.

The Super73-RX retailed for $5,000, but the first 24 are now sold out. Watch for more releases at (Available only in the continental United States.)

You can buy Alfa Romeo’s 2023 F1 show car (but you can’t drive it)
The lucky winner won’t be able to drive the Alfa Romeo race car, but it will make for a striking centerpiece
2023 Alfa Romeo F1 C43 show car from front overhead shot in a studio with studio lighting.

Like most race cars, F1 cars are built with lap times in mind. Engineers and designers spend a painstaking amount of attention on every detail in the hopes of cutting 0.01 seconds off of a lap time. While the end result is a race car that puts function over form, there’s no denying that F1 cars are beautiful. Despite the bulky, but entirely necessary halo and the wheel covers that look like fancy mudflaps, modern F1 cars are striking.
If you caught the reveal of the 2023 C43, which is Alfa Romeo’s entry for the 2023 season of Formula 1, and liked the design, we have some good news. The actual car that was used for the reveal is up for auction on F1 Authentics and includes some extra goodies.

BMW introduces 2024 X5 and X6, adding range to plug-in hybrid option
BMW X5 and X6: Updated designs, standard 48-volt systems, and new tech are also on hand

BMW may be known for its high-performance sports cars and excellent driver-focused sedans, but the X5 was its best-selling model in 2022. The last time the X5 model was fully redesigned was in 2019, which means that it’s time for a host of updates. Enter the 2024 BMW X5 and its sportier X6 counterpart, which arrive with thorough mid-cycle refreshes. The main highlights are the introduction of a new inline-six engine with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, improved efficiency for the plug-in hybrid model, and a new interior design with added tech.
Both the X5 and X6 40i models will continue to come with a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, but the motor has been redesigned for 2024. In addition to the new engine, the 40i models are now hybrids, too. The six-cylinder engine gets a 48-volt mild-hybrid system with an electric motor that’s integrated into the eight-speed automatic transmission. With the new engine and the addition of the mild-hybrid system, the base X5 and X6 models are now rated at 375 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. These are upgrades from 335 hp and 330 lb-ft from the outgoing model.
