White Zenvo ST1

If stormtroopers had their hand at designing a hypercar, it'd probably look something like the all-new 2015 Zenvo ST1, priced at $950,000USD. Powered by a twin-charged 6.8L V8, the engine delivers a peak 1,104-horsepower and 1,054 pound-feet of torque, driving the rear wheels only. What sets this apart from its predecessor is a new sequential transmission that replaces the previous manual, with seven forward gears and a single clutch. Gear shifts take a mere 35-milliseconds, making it one of the fastest shifting, single clutch transmissions in the world. Continue reading for two videos and more information.

Star Wars Wedding Photos

Mezame Shashin-ka, a Singapore-based photographer, specializes in incorporating science fiction themes into his work, and a newly-engaged couple approached him with a special request: an out of this world, Star Wars-themed wedding photo shoot. It took weeks to plan, partially due to the handcrafted lightsabers. Shashin-ka said: "Being Star Wars fans, they decided to portray themselves as Jedi Knights who have fallen in love with one another. Together, they are ready to battle the evil Galactic Empire together. It sees the groom-to-be Jedi turn from the Light Side of the Force to the Dark Side and eventually go through some sort of redemption mid-battle with his wife-to-be to return to the Light Side again (hence, why he took out the Sith groomsmen)." To capture the photos, he used a Canon 5D Mark III, two Bowens GM500 strobes, two Canon 580EX II flashes, and a smoke machine. Continue reading to see some of the best shots from the shoot.
