This Audi A8 L car was built to compete with the V12 Mercedes-Benz S600 and BMW 760LI sedans with it’s W12 engine and an MSRP of $133,500 dollars. Here are the details courtesy of the Robb Report: Audi’s W-12 engine—essentially two narrow-angle V-6s conjoined on a single crankshaft—displaces 6.3 liters and employs direct fuel injection for extraordinary responsiveness and impressive fuel efficiency. The result is an ample 500 hp and 461 ft lbs of torque, delivered to all four wheels through a suitably cutting-edge 8-speed automatic transmission. Sixty miles per hour arrives in about 4.4 seconds—more than a second sooner than its V-8-powered sibling. Heating, ventilation, and massage functions for front and rear seats are available, as are reclining “executive” rear seats with private-jet-style extendable footrests. Audi’s dazzling, Google Earth–integrated GPS navigation system is standard, as is onboard Wi-Fi hotspot capability, with Internet connectivity through the car’s own 3G cellular setup. Among the car’s few options, the 19-speaker, 1,400-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system is a magnificent must-have.

The new adidas Laces R&D building is designed by Kada Wittfield Architecture which is now up and running at corporate headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany. The name “Laces” pertains to the design of the building in which walkways within the building connect and criss-cross with each other in a networked pattern: The building forms a loop. Suspended walkways cross the atrium space, “lacing” the building’s structure together like the laces of a sports shoe. The walkways connect individual departments within the building complex, making for greater proximity and preventing the disruptive effect of people walking through offices. Via Collabcubed
