Lamborghini Pregunta prototype on sale for $2.1M

 The Lamborghini Pregunta, which made its debut at the 1998 Paris Auto Show, is now up for sale for 1.6 million euros, or $2.1 million. It was acquired by Autodrome, a French seller of rare and classic cars, who retrieved the Pregunta from the Italian branch of the French specialist of prototype cars, Carrosserie Hueliez. The Pregunta was the result of an order placed back in the 90′s with Hueliez for an one-off concept car that was based off a Diablo development car donated by Lamborghini.

The order asked for a car that was “new, original, and impossible to confuse with any other car’s shapes.” The car concept was the “last and ultimate special coachwork ever built on a Lamborghini base”, before the company was taken over by Audi. Lamborghini was going through a tough transitional phase during this period. Back in 1994, it was sold by Chrysler to the Megatech Group, and then purchased by Tommy Suharto, son of the former Indonesian president, before finally ending up in the hands of Audi.

However, while it is based on the Diablo, it lacks the all-wheel drive of the Diablo and opts for a lighter, extreme rear-wheel drive design instead.
The Pregunta was inspired by both the Formula One, as well as the Aerospace industry. It features Dassault stealth external paintwork like the Dassault Rafale jet fighter, dynamic air intakes, fully electronic F-1 type Marelli instruments, 4 points can purchase it from Autodrome here.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Bing Apps for Windows 8 get major updates

Late least year, Microsoft rolled out a half dozen Bing Apps for Windows 8 users, each one focused on a specific category, such as travel and sports. The apps were designed to offer “immersive vertical experiences,” and now, about six months later, a big line of updates for them is being pushed out. Users can grab the updates now by heading into the Windows Store and selecting the updates notification.
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
