Maserati, which is entering an exciting new era with the mid-engined MC20, recently took to social media to share images of a modern-day interpretation of the Shamal.

These designs were shared on the Maserati Fuoriserie account on Instagram and show a vehicle known as ‘Project Rekall.’ The car has some retro vibes, and while it’s unlikely to spawn any kind of production variant, it certainly looks good.

For starters, the overall shape of the original Shamal has been retained, meaning there is the same boxy bodywork with sharp lines and squared surfaces. One of the key changes made is the fitment of new LED headlights and daytime running lights, while the front end also features a more pronounced splitter.

Elsewhere, Maserati’s designers have tweaked the rear end with new LED taillights, a sharper rear lip spoiler and new tailpipes. The car also has a raised roof spoiler and a set of seven-spoke wheels.

The interior of the Project Rekall is largely the same as the original Shamal but does feature some alterations, most notably the inclusion of a (rather retro looking) digital gauge cluster and a set of carbon fiber-backed bucket seats.

Maserati’s Fuoriserie account on Instagram doesn’t just promote the automaker’s Fuoriserie customization program. but also showcases a number of intriguing design studies that won’t reach the production line but demonstrate the diversity of the brand’s designs.

Lamborghini and Ducati face an uncertain future under the VW Group’s umbrella, but the brands have teamed up to create a special motorcycle.

Dubbed the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, the model is being billed as a “unique project born from the collaboration between two prestigious brands that have their roots in the Motor Valley.”

That isn’t much to go on, but the teaser image shows the Diavel will have a unique fuel tank with a carbon fiber insert and a prominent Lamborghini badge. We can also see a greenish brown body and a matte black fuel cap.

Regular Diavel 1260

Little else is known about the bike at this point, but it will be introduced tomorrow, November 25th, at 1:00 p.m. EST.

Lamborghini and Ducati are staying tight-lipped, but the bike is based on the Diavel 1260 which features a 1.3-liter engine that produces 157 hp (117 kW / 159 PS) and 95 lb-ft (129 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a six-speed gearbox, a Brembo braking system and a stainless dual exhaust system. Other highlights should include LED lighting units, a 3.5-inch digital instrument cluster and 17-inch wheels.

While nothing is official, the model could be based on the Diavel 1260 S. It’s sportier than the standard model as it features a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, beefier brakes and a so-called “Quick Shift” system. The S variant also has a special seat, unique wheels, a daytime running light and a multimedia system which connects your smartphone to the bike.

A number of questions remain, but we’ll find out full details tomorrow.

Tesla’s stock price has soared $459.74 (£344.19 / €386.85) since the beginning of the year and that has made a number of people extremely wealthy.

One of them was Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is now reportedly the second wealthiest person in the world.

According to Bloomberg, Musk has a net worth of $127.9 (£95.8 / €107.6) billion. That’s an increase of $100.3 (£75.1 / €84.4) billion in less than a year.

The publication went on to say Musk has passed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to become the second richest person in the world. That’s an impressive accomplishment, but Amazon founder Jeff Bezos remains the wealthiest person in the world and Gates would be ahead of Musk if he hadn’t donated more than $27 (£20.2 / €22.7) billion to charity.

Bloomberg says roughly three-quarters of Musk’s net worth comes from his stake in Tesla, which has market cap of over $500 (£374.4 / €420.9) billion.  The latter is more than the combined market cap of Ford, GM and Daimler. Musk also has a stake in SpaceX, but that apparently doesn’t add nearly as much to his net worth as Tesla.

Tesla’s stock gained 6.6% on Monday and 5.1% on Tuesday to $548.53 per share having risen over 523% so far this year.

Of course, there’s been plenty of debate over whether or not Tesla’s stratospheric stock price has any basis in reality. Most people would likely say no as Tesla is a relatively small automaker which produced 145,036 vehicles in the third quarter and delivered 139,300 units in the same period. For comparison, GM sold 765,001 vehicles in the North America in the third quarter and 1,793,311 globally.
