meeting mara

Hey Mara, congrats on your first MAXIM New Zealand feature. How do you feel? Amazing! I’m so excited to be featured for the first time and I feel so lucky to be a part of MAXIM. “I WOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE DREAMT OF HAVING THE LIFE I HAVE NOW BUT I’M GLAD I NEVER GAVE UP.” This photo shoot was done in Mozambique. What did you love most about it? I loved travelling to Africa. It’s a place that I always wanted to visit and it did not disappoint. I fell in love with it and it opened me up and inspired me to travel more. I actually booked a one-way ticket to Italy from Mozambique and ended up backpacking alone around Italy for three months after this shoot – that’s how inspired I…

bugatti centodieci hypercar

If you’re bored with all the $3 million-plus Bugatti Chirons your mates are driving, maybe this machine will move your needle. From the makers of such fine hypercars as the $3.93m Chiron, comes the exclusive and extreme Bugatti Centodieci — priced for Aussies at about $20 million including stamp duty, luxury car tax and rich bugger fees. The Centodieci features a relentless 8 litre 16 cylinder engine with four turbochargers that makes 1176kW and 1600Nm of torque — numbers that wouldn’t look out of place at a shuttle launch. Impressed? Try an eye blinking 0-100 km/h time of 2.4 seconds and 0-300 km/h in 13.1 seconds — the same time it takes a Toyota Camry to hit 100km/h. But these stats don’t make it the worlds quickest. Bugatti has electronically muzzled…

mercedes’ vision of electrified luxury

Is this the future of electrified luxury, or luxurious electricity? Mercedes is hoping the Vision EQS concept will do for their electric range what the S-Class did for almost the whole car industry. After all, this is where all tech is going to trickle down from. Given Jaguar’s making the next XJ electric, the luxury car market may be going silent — and possibly autonomous. But while the EQS comes equipped with Level 3 autonomy, it’ll still be very much driveable. Mercedes promises decent handling, good performance, and an arse whooping coming the way of Tesla. This isn’t ludicrous speed quick, but accommodating. Peaks of 350 kW and 560lb ft are spread across both axles for torque-vectored all-wheel drive, allowing a brisk 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. Range is roughly 640km on…

get low

Riders of all kinds have been drawn to Indian Motorcycle in recent years due to its combination of performance, design and craftsmanship. Models such as the Scout and Scout Sixty have taken Indian’s product line to new levels, and a more aggressively styled addition to its offerings, the Scout Bobber, flaunts the highest level of design achievement by, ironically, getting low. The sleek lines of the Scout Bobber provide the feeling of streamlined speed, even when stationary. It features a stripped-down look, perfecting the traditional bobber shape by providing an aggressive riding position without sacrificing any of the comfort riders have come to expect from Indian. Its blacked-out design is enhanced by the colour options available, including White Smoke, Bronze Smoke, Thunder Black and Thunder Black Smoke. Needless to say, the…

naked yamaha

Yamaha ushered in a new era in the motorcycle world when it launched the iconic MT-09 in 2013. Now Yamaha’s Hyper Naked family has a new sibling — the 2020 Yamaha MT-03. Based on the YZF-R3 supersport, the MT-03’s styling fits in with Yamaha’s Dark Side of Japan theme that flows through the MT-07, MT-09, and MT-10 naked uprights. The Dark Side of Japan is a core philosophy amongst a certain group of riders who celebrate Yamaha’s Japanese origins, while declaring MT riders as the true Masters of Torque. The same high-revving twin-cylinder DOHC powerplant and state of the art suspension that was used in the YZF-R3 is on show here, so this machine should be well-suited to urban brawling. We expect nothing less. Inspired by the theme of darkness and aggression,…
