Volvo P1800 Cyan

Stunning yet simple.

Back in September, Cyan Racing surprised us with the Volvo P1800 Cyan. It’s a modern interpretation of the classic coupe, though it adds a few modern touches, like a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder. However, Cyan Racing didn’t go all out in modernising the model. It lacks ABS, power brakes, and stability control, for

Audi Q7 SUV – Interior & comfort 2020 review

Audi has a reputation for producing some of the best interiors on the market and the new Audi Q7 definitely benefits from that expertise. The inside of the car is finished with materials that look and feel plush and the minimalist dashboard design is smart and modern. The interior of the Volvo XC90 is excellent and runs the Q7 close, but the materials in the Audi have an extra touch of class.

Refinement is excellent, making it a very relaxing car to travel in, and giving you a great opportunity to enjoy what is one of the best interiors on

NZXT introduced a new Z490 motherboard, which includes a shield covering the entire PCB and gives it a minimalist look. It’s the perfect compliment to NZXT’s minimalist case designs.


The N7 Z490 is a relatively simple Z490 motherboard. NZXT said it built the board “for builders.” It emphasized that it optimized the location of ports and connectors to simplify assembly. The N7 Z490 doesn’t come packed with the bells and whistles we often see on modern boards. It offers Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth V5.1, and RBG lighting headers that you can control with NXZT CAM

Tesla Model 3 saloon – Interior & comfort 2020 review

Even more so than the Model S, the Model 3’s interior is a breath of fresh air. Tesla is famously a software company that makes cars, and the entire interior is focused around a beautiful 15-inch central touchscreen. Look for buttons or switches and you’ll only find a handful on the steering wheel controlling music and traditional electric window switches on the doors.

You control all of the car’s functions via the touchscreen. It displays all of the essential information for the driver, including speed, range and location. The system is slick, with little or no lag, but it can

Hot Property: A Mediterranean-Inspired Waterfront Mansion in Westlake

When choosing Hot Properties, I tend to avoid mega-mansions and select warm and welcoming family homes instead, the kind that you can picture entering for a laid-back birthday party or a summer barbecue. (Pre-pandemic, of course. We all have to dream for the time being.) Cheery midcentury builds in Lakewood, 1920s cottages in the M Streets, the occasional contemporary in the Park Cities–all beautiful homes, but without the intimidating aura of an opulent estate.

Today, however, I’m making an exception. 1876 Lakeshore Drive may be 15,00o square feet and have a $9.8 million price tag, but somehow this massive home

With the holiday season fast approaching, consider it the ultimate gift to give to a special someone.

COLUMBIA — The design at the recently opened Front Coffee and Tap could hardly be more minimal. The libation and caffeination spot in the CanalSide development on the banks of the Congaree River is marked by a clean white interior, with little other color aside from modern furnishings and wall canvas art that is white and blue.
