Congrats on your first MAXIM feature, Bianca. How do you feel? Thank you so much, I’m really excited. The team at MAXIM have been awesome and I would do it again in a heartbeat. We shot this feature at the Palazzo Versace Gold Coast, which is actually my favourite hotel in my home town. What is your best asset? I ’m always up for an adventure and I’m never one to settle. If you’ve got an idea – let’s go do it. Some would say I’m just very impulsive. When do you feel sexy? Looking good is about feeling good. So, when I’m fit and healthy I feel my best. Feeling healthy gives me confidence and there is nothing sexier than a woman with confidence. What do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM? I have…

ferrari’s most powerful road-going thoroughbred

ENGINE 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 (plus 3 electric motors) TRANSMISSION 8 speed dual clutch POWER 735 kW TORQUE 1032 lb-ft. TOP SPEED 340 km/h 0-100KM/H 2.5 seconds Thanks to much win from the game changer that was the LaFerrari, hybrids will be a permanent fixture in Ferrari’s future. That 707 kW model proved that even for a company so steeped in tradition —0 progress is always part of the plan. And Ferrari's latest product is no exception. So yes, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a hybrid. But unlike its predecessor, the SF90 packs a smaller engine, has plug-in capabilities, has all-wheel drive, but more importantly, has more horses. Its turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 produces 573 kW and 590 pound-feet of torque. That alone makes it the most powerful V8-powered Ferrari to date. But wait there’s more. Ferrari then packs three lithium-ion powered electric…

the rocket

ENGINE 2458cc inline-3 DOHC TRANSMISSION 6 speed shaft drive POWER 123kW DRY WEIGHT 290 kgs SEAT HEIGHT 30.4 inches FUEL CAPACITY 18 litres PRICE $35,000(est) They may not be the Beatles or the Stones, but Triumph Motorcycles had their own British Invasion of sorts when they launched their 2020 Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT at the all-American Sturgis Rally this year. Like many, Triumph believe that bigger is better, and like a proud papa shamelessly paraded their utterly monstrous new edition Rocket 3, — which boasts more torque than any production motorcycle on this planet — or the next. Available in two weapons of choice — the base Rocket 3 and the Rocket 3 GT —the Triumph’s new power cruisers claim a 2458 cc inline three cylinder motor. That amounts to 123kW at 6000 rpm on call — an 11% gain over the 2009…

all-terrain swagger

Despite not being the brand of choice when it comes to the off-roads, Audi is looking toward a dirty future with their AI Trail off-road concept, launched at this year’s Frankfurst Motor show. Like the Audi AI:Con, AI:Me, and the AI:Race before it, the Audi AI:Trail is an all-electric, all-terrain beast - with the kitchen sink and every utensil thrown in. Like today's Audi's, it possesses permanent Quattro all-wheel drive, but unlike today's Audi's, this four-metre long carbon/aluminum/steel moon buggy comes with on-road autonomous capabilities and major astronaut swagger. With chunky 22 inch wheels and 13.4 inches of ground clearance, this thing could easily monster over 1.6 rising floods. The steepest of descents and the roughest of gravel also pose no issue as the drive train is equipped with four electric motors…

getting high… on life

The 1960s — the age of tie-dye, social protest, flower-child environmental concern and feminist tension. As The Beatles searched India for the path to meditative transcendence, Ayurvedic medicine and vegetarianism, those left at home grappled with the ’60s concern of “meaning over money”, while attempting to form an answer to Time magazine’s question ofthe decade: “Is God Dead?”. The Age of Aquarius ushered an interest in explorative wellness that centred on magic mushrooms and herbal hedonism. Fast forward to 2019. Once again, tie-dye has hit the catwalks, social protest flows through our streets, climate change has become one of Australia’s most divisive subjects and we continue to wrestle with the aftermath of the #MeToo movement. Google easily allows us to explore Ayurvedic theory and the benefits of yoga, while we eat…
