2022 is still a ways away, but where supercars are concerned there are already a few exciting models in the pipeline. Key among those are Lamborghini’s Countach, Ford’s 2022 GT ’64 Prototype Heritage Edition and the 2022 Acura NSX Type S.

Read on to find out more about each of these models.

Lamborghini Countach

Fans will remember the Countach as an icon that moulded the modern supercar. First launched on March 11, 1971, the Countach was designed as the successor to Lamborghini’s Miura. Its wedge shape was echoed by other supercars that followed in the 70s, and its scissor doors are still a Lamborghini trademark today.

Little is known about the upcoming Countach, but a leak online has given us clues on what it might look like. According to several sources, it appears to be modelled after the LP400, before appointments like the large rear wing were added. Check out a teaser for the 2022 supercar below:

The Ford GT has consistently paid homage to Ford’s roots at the Le Mans in the 1960s. Celebrating its last year of production, Ford has decided to unveil a special livery for the 2022 supercar in honour of its storied past. The 2022 GT ’64 Prototype Heritage Edition features design elements that pay homage to the original GT prototypes that gave Ferrari’s GT40 a run for its money.

Cool Whip: HB-Custom’s crisp Suzuki DR650 scrambler

Suzuki DR650 scrambler by HB-Custom
If we had to use one word to describe the bikes that roll out of Holger Breuer’s workshop, it would be ‘crisp.’ Whether he’s building a bobber or a scrambler, the man behind HB-Custom has an eye for perfect proportions and liveries that pop. Even when he’s working with a tired old Suzuki dual-sport as a donor, Holger manages to make magic.

This 1994 Suzuki DR650 came to the HB-Custom workshop in Husum, Germany, all the way from Berlin. Holger’s client actually booked two bikes in at once; an old BMW boxer to turn into a bobber for solo rides, and the Suzuki, which was destined for around-town duties and the occasional two-up jaunt.

The bike arrived as a rolling chassis with a very loose brief, so Holger envisioned a svelte scrambler for whipping through Berlin’s city streets. He’s built a number of handsome custom Honda Dominators, and figured that he could apply the same formula to the Suzuki DR650. And he was right.

But first, the Suzuki’s well-worn motor needed attention. Holger tore it down and rebuilt it, complete with new seals and gaskets and a fresh coat of paint. This engine might be almost three decades old, but it’s clean enough to eat off of.

Custom à la carte: A BMW R nineT streetfighter from France

Custom BMW R nineT streetfighter by Duke Motorcycles
Lionel Duke builds a little bit of everything. His Nice, France-based custom shop, Duke Motorcycles, has transformed Honda Goldwings, Kawasaki ER6s, and Ducati Scramblers into unique one-off creations in recent years. But the most interesting thing to come from his garage actually isn’t a bike at all—it’s a box full of parts.

More specifically, a box full of parts to convert any stock BMW R NineT into a radical-looking plug-and-play custom streetfighter. It was this very kit that caught the eye of Duke’s latest client, who saw a picture of Lionel’s prototype build online and decided he wanted one for himself.

The client loved the original kit’s supercar-inspired design, but wanted a few unique touches of their own to truly make it theirs. And Lionel was more than happy to oblige.

“He had been asking around Parisian workshops that offered their own R nineT kits,” he says, “but none of them were willing to modify their standard parts to suit his tastes. I told him that it wasn’t a problem for me, as I actually prefer to do different things on each project.”

We’re feeling both retro and futuristic this week, so we’ve rounded up bikes that cover the full spectrum. Leading the charge is Verge’s new Mika Häkkinen edition electric bike, followed by the new Fantic Caballero 700 scrambler.

Verge Mika Häkkinen Signature Edition electric bike
Verge Mika Häkkinen Signature Edition With an impressive 51 Formula One podiums and two championships to his credit with Lotus and McLaren, the Flying Finn knows mechanical excellence. So when Mika Häkkinen partnered with electric superbike manufacturer Verge Motorcycles, you knew it was something worth paying attention to.

Häkkinen joined forces with Verge early in 2023, and instead of just a plain endorsement, Verge announced that Häkkinen is now part of the company’s advisory board and has personally designed his own limited-edition bike. Capped at 100 units, each Häkkinen Signature Edition Verge comes with a numbered plaque with Mika’s signature, unique cosmetics and will sell for around $87,000.
