the scorpion

September 19, 2008

“Ronn Motor Company, Inc. (“Company” or “RMC”) is a publicly traded automotive design and manufacturing company formed to build premium, Eco friendly, handcrafted automobiles. Our initial project is called the SCORPION, a mid engine, hydrogen fuel injected hybrid, competing in the exotic car segment. It will feature the latest in engine technology from Acura®, utilizing the new aluminum and magnesium V-Tech, Type S V-6 motor. This engine produces nearly 300 horsepower stock and with our twin turbo option, over 450 horsepower. The Scorpion will feature our new and exclusive Hydrogen Fuel Injection (HFI) fuel delivery system. The system provides Hydrogen on demand, which is injected directly into the motor. This alternative fuel approach allows us to increase fuel mileage between 20-40 % and reduce CO2 emissions to nearly zero. We will use this automobile as an entry into the automotive market place, providing a platform for other emerging technologies, including Hydrogen fuel cells and electric plug-in hybrid cars. “

    awesome what these cars do, or should i say don’t do with the environment?!

    anyway. i confess that i liked more about its “function” and its name, instead of its design..

  2. IGrabbedChestersWrist on September 22, 2008 at 9:55 am

    ha awesome.

    Hey did you guys see the 65mpg car that Ford just came out with….but it won’t be released in the US?

    http://finance.yahoo.com/loans/article/105735/The-65-mpg-Ford-the-U.S.-Can%27t-Have

    There’s something really politically eff’d up going on in this country. Cars with higher mpg exist.. overseas. Enough Said.

  3. Linkin_Betty on September 22, 2008 at 8:32 am

    aww i like this car! it looks sooo hot😛 but why somebody needs a fast car when he can use it all? … but i really like these cars😀

  4. Ezza on September 22, 2008 at 5:01 am

    dude that car is HOTNESS! finally a car that looks hot and is enviromentally friendly…..not that i want to know how much it is.

  5. Sharp_Swimmer on September 21, 2008 at 10:22 am

    Nice one! Really streamline-y car, that one.🙂
    Btw, this might be of interest, though you might have seen it before: Some absolutely amazing sidewalk art! It’s ridiculously cool, and pretty inspiring:

  6. magzimgo on September 21, 2008 at 10:10 am

    my god, mike, have you heard about travis barker’s & dj am’s lane crash? its horrible(( have you checked out how are they? i know that travis & chester where good friends.😦 hope that everything will be allright, and that you guys will double check your plane before flying anywhere.

  7. Ash75 on September 21, 2008 at 10:07 am

    we’ll byu u that car ;]

  8. LPPRJKT4 on September 21, 2008 at 9:15 am

    The track was titled My}Dsmbr ft. Kelli Ali. In 2007 Josh Groban preformed an orchestral cover of My December at one of his shows and announced (not at the show) that he would be releasing a studio version of it as a b-side on his album Closer. As for Linkin Park, they remixed it for a third time in 2007, making it an acoustic song. Keyboard and vocals only. Here are the lyrics to the song.

    I had to split the article cuz of the 700 character thing.. sry

  9. LPPRJKT4 on September 21, 2008 at 9:14 am

    It was also released on the One Step Closer (UK Version) single a short while before Hybrid Theory was released. It became such a hit that it was then put on as a b-side in the special edition of Hybrid Theory, which was sold in Japan. Later on it was remixed and put on their remix album dubbed Reanimation, which was a remix of Hybrid Theory and a collaboration album with many other artists.

  10. LPPRJKT4 on September 21, 2008 at 9:14 am

    This is just a little inside info on one of the most incredible songs ever written. My December was written by the hit band Linkin Park around the time their debut album Hybrid Theory came out on October 31st, 2000. It made it’s live debut at KRQQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas in 2000 and then released on a Christmas Charity album featuring a wide variety of artists.

  11. LPPRJKT4 on September 21, 2008 at 9:12 am

    damn dude, that must be really expensive. Btw, congrats on the big time success with M2M and the conclusion of the M2M tour. Hope to have the chance to meet u on the next Projekt Rev. Umm i have a favor to ask of u tho, i recently wrote a small article on facebook about one of your songs My December. Many of your hardcore fans think that this is an incredible piece of work and we feel that more LP fans should know about this masterpiece. I was wondering if u cud put the article on ur site the next time u go on. I’ll copy it on this comment so u can read and decide, thanks for listening tho!!!

  12. SinisterNL on September 21, 2008 at 5:55 am

    bet those costs like 500.000 dollar.

  13. yohannaaaa on September 21, 2008 at 2:18 am

    I totally agree with kathrine🙂 you’re like the most amazing guy in the world, Mike, and you’re working so hard and sometimes you need to tell yourself to slow it down and take it easy. But I admire you so much cause you’re just amazing in every way, you’re so smart and talented, your my biggest role model and I can’t say how much WE love you! :’)

    **

    i think you guys should vote for linkin park for best ‘rock out’ and ‘headliner’ http://ema.mtv.co.uk/vote/
    you can vote as many times as you want to!

  14. kathrine on September 21, 2008 at 1:59 am

    hi Mike,
    what I have to say may seem irrelevant BUT I really mean it; you are a person full of energy and passion to do great and new things in music and also other suspects of life and I was hoping for a new LP song but what about your familly?It may be time for you to focus on that too…I AM NOT trying to tell you how to live your life but I AM SURE YOU WILL BE A HELL OF A GOOD FATHER to your children!!!!! I’ll be happy to hear such news some day!!!
    friendlly,
    kathrine

  15. soyuneik on September 21, 2008 at 1:58 am

    24 hours and no hover car? I thought you could extract things from your mind and poof, here in reality. hmm.
    On another note.. Its cold as freakin balls up in here! Turn the air off and I can’t breath its so hot, turn it on and now there’s icicles growing from my nose. lol I think that can also be a symbolic representation of my life. I can’t win.
    Speaking of NOT winning. I officially came to the conclusion that I loath my entry. Sigh… Ha, well at least I entered.
    If its not turning heads its not good enough.

  16. WorldWarrior19 on September 20, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    Dude yea mike you gotta hook yourself up with one of these

  17. Madlen on September 20, 2008 at 2:26 pm

    Wow…this is a great car…thank god people come up with things that actually save the nature:)Oh btw i was just listening to LOART :DIt was on “The Voice”

  18. keineAhnung on September 20, 2008 at 2:10 pm

    sooo, you think of buying a new car? …looks great (even though I somehow can’t imagine you sitting in a sportscar ROFL) and TG it’s non of that biodiesel sh_t

  19. spraypaintNinkpens on September 20, 2008 at 12:33 pm

    I agree murray. This is terrible news that could happen to anyone. Blink was my 2nd favorite band and this is just terrible news. Idk what else to say.

  20. LenneAB on September 20, 2008 at 11:22 am

    NICE, but I’m sure I can’t afford it.
    I’ll rather ride my bike, it’s not THAT stylish, but it’s cheaper….

  21. murry on September 20, 2008 at 10:55 am

    Hey, I just read about Travis Barker and DJ AM’s plane crash. And all I can think about is how it’s not safe for rock stars in airplanes. So, uh, never ever ever get in an airplane ever again, okay? Okay?

  22. onoselena on September 20, 2008 at 10:26 am

    OH !! Amazing Car !! I like it !! I will planning to buy . (heehee)

  40. axrinekey on September 19, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    The design of the cars is AWESOME!
    xD

    Though the first one reminds me of Batman’s car xD

    ahh! Well, I’ve heard of these cars last year!
    Finally, they’ve made it, huh? xD

    They are expensive, too, huh?:/

    ahh well! xD
    The title, “scorpion” xD
    Reminds me of just now when I was going to have my breakfast outside, there’s this vandalism on the wall, writing “scopion” xD
    And I was like, “do they mean scorpion?”
    Haha!

  41. Brittney on September 19, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    Sexy car, and fuel efficient? What more could you ask for?

  44. 2T_LP on September 19, 2008 at 6:21 pm

    omg!! its amazingggggg and the fact that it’s not harmful for the enviroment and so on make it mooreee amaaazingggg

    id never eveer drive it in the streets!! lollllllllll

  45. ShadowerLiltani on September 19, 2008 at 4:45 pm

    That is a hot car. See, you don’t actually drive a car like that, you just stare at it 24/7 and go, “I have the best fucking looking car on the block k thanx bye”. That car’s got like, orgasmic hotness. Anyways, have you seen Nuttin’ But Stringz on America’s Got Talent? They put their heart into their music and force the listeners to breathe what they feel while they play. You gotta watch them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti6ceK_cY2Y

  46. Syder_Joker on September 19, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    SHAWEET!!! Like the design😀 plus I would like to drive one and i would like to talk to you about ur art..Your robots from fort minor art I would like to use them in a comic of mine😀

    I like the red one – it’s my birthday in 2 weeks, will you get me one?😀

  48. I_B_Long on September 19, 2008 at 3:51 pm

  49. sasummsumm on September 19, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    nice…how about painting one of them by you^^…would look cool XD…hrhr

  50. yohannaaaa on September 19, 2008 at 3:22 pm

    I saw “Transformers” tonight with my friends (we’re all like your biggest fans so that’s why we ranted it in the first place) but yeah, it was AWESOME. And after like an hour or something one of the robots turned on the radio and we heard you rap, like 5 seconds or something😄 (i’m sure it was you mike) and we almost started to cry😀 and i loved the ending too, everything was so awesome about the movie, and it just made it better that you guys had the soundtrack to it, i absolutely loved the movie!!!😀 I’m going to watch it again tomorrow no-lifer, i know X)
    Be cool, have a great weekend and everything, love you, bye! 🙂

  51. lucky_cat on September 19, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    Yes, this is a step in the right direction. they should develop the technology for more “normal” cars too. these here are nice, but a little bit eccentric (foremost the price) …

  52. Hawaii_LP_fan on September 19, 2008 at 3:11 pm

    Hm, I’d definitely get the red one. I thought Ms. Angelina Jolie’s little red coupster in “Wanted” was pretty radical but this is a cross between the batmobile and a ‘vette. Probably would be fun doing donuts in that car. Burn up a trickle of water I’m sure.🙂

  53. psykobouliz on September 19, 2008 at 2:57 pm

    man i want to drive this car!!! oh wow!

    hey by the way, mike i got a question (it’s really important, as someone said the other day!!!) : is this myspace the real Chester :
    http://www.myspace.com/cesterbenningtons
    Thanx for answering!! =)
    have a fun weekend!!

  54. jennab on September 19, 2008 at 2:37 pm

    so does it run on hydrogen or water? If it runs off of water I do not like it as much. We are running low on water as it is (if you are confused by this statement talk to someone who lives in GA) and I do not think that water is the alternative fuel that we need to endorse. Not to mention if we start using water to fuel our cars imagine how the price of water will go up….and thank you but it is already expensive enough. =) I do support the creation of hydrogen fueled cars that omit water. =)
    It does look very cool.

  55. PankakeMunky on September 19, 2008 at 2:32 pm

    those are some pretty sick cars. that’s what i call trying to save the environment: making the cars look way better than the normal gas running cars we have now. i would totally buy these cars over a porche or a ferarri only because they look just as good as the sports car and you’re going to save the world. i think the public needs to be inspired by green cars by making them look as amazing as possible and stick the thought into their minds, “green cars can look way better than my gas guzzling car and i can show it off!”

  56. Nazareth on September 19, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    wow, wonderful cars, but i invite u to take a tour in my car http://flickr.com/photos/salmanlp/2592579686/

  57. liope on September 19, 2008 at 2:02 pm

    i can hardly believe that this car can produce nearly 300 horsepower!!!!! it looks like it can….but i don’t believe it!!! so i will keep doing what Jonny Walker does! i’ll keep walking!!!!

  58. ams_900 on September 19, 2008 at 1:52 pm

    omg i want the red one.
    that car is amazing.

  61. AliceXD on September 19, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    i think this is the first time a car has made my jaw drop to the floor. i like motorcycles more than cars.. but… HOLY HELL! these cars look amazing.

    Cool,i like the 0 Co2 thing but I’ve seen better cars: Aston Martin DB9 – gorgeous and just amaazing! and the Audi R8(in red!) in the words of Stryker – fantasmic (-:

    But its great, and you need a cooler car than that massive white block you have Mike hehe…

  64. LinkinParkROCK on September 19, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    Oh my God. That is the most amazing…UGH. I adore cars, and you just made my day. It is absolutely gorgeous. Personally, I like the red the best. Which is your fave?🙂

  66. TiffTiff33LP on September 19, 2008 at 11:58 am

    CUPHOLDERS!!!!!!!!^^ Dude, that thing is like super awsomeness looking.I like.!!!!!!^^

  67. Curiosa on September 19, 2008 at 11:28 am

    CONT: It looks good but I’m not 2 fond of the “pockets” on the sides cause if u really want a fast car, u don’t want anything interfering so u get an aerodynamic car & those pockets do not look aerodynamic. What I would really love 2 see is a vehicle less than $50,000 w/increased fuel milage & nil 2 non CO2 emissions where more than 2 people will fit that looks good. Show me that & I’ll die happy. :)~

    Have a good weekend. 🙂

  68. Curiosa on September 19, 2008 at 11:27 am

    Nice car. Do they have it in silver? Don’t u just lov the curves, Mike? ;)~ lol Turbo atached 2 it would hike up my insurance rates & I’m not planing on going over 100 mph anywhere xcept a race track but i lov the increased fuel mileag & low CO2 emisions but 4 $150,000 I’ll stick 2my car: its more logical. CONT::::: stupid 700 character rule

  69. Jaclyn on September 19, 2008 at 11:22 am

    Fuck! )))) Later you can sing to me like a shining star but i’d rather do you on the backseat of this car ))))))

  70. cuz on September 19, 2008 at 11:22 am

    eco friendly, hybrid, good looking? i need it…

  71. Mark86 on September 19, 2008 at 11:17 am

    I’m sorry, but it looks horrible…
    And I agree to use hidrogen with the city cars, but not with sport cars. (and european sport cars are more beautiful, ah!)

  72. Curiosa on September 19, 2008 at 11:03 am

    Man I’m behind on posts here, bn busy. 1st off on Ike, thanks 4 helping out. I know on Mon. the Red Cross in San Anto had asked for donations for brand new underwear, socks, & shoes 4 the victims here in SA. That was Mon. when I heard about it but ever since then I haven’t had time 2 watch the news. Sorry won’t be helping MFR cause I’m helping Ike victims here, so many things going on like benefit dinners & such.

    On another note: u as president??? well at least it’s not as scary as having Paris as pres. lol yes I’m aware it’s a joke. :)~

    If our suggestions could matter.. ehm ehm .. Mike, buy the black one!!! =)

    haha =P

  79. murry on September 19, 2008 at 10:28 am

    Awesome, but when they make a mid-sized sedan with that technology, I’ll really be on board. That’s just so impractical.

  80. miKer0cks on September 19, 2008 at 10:07 am
