Meet The Sexy New 3-Holer BizJet – The Dassault Falcon 8X

Every time a professional race team swaps sponsors, switches cars or starts a new year, you always hear approximately 47 billion calls for them to go back to a classic livery. "Do the pink pig!"

Could Elon Musk's Hyperloop tube system truly revolutionize mass transit? Maybe, if he had any inclination to do it.
