Caterham has unveiled three concepts and they’re definitely something to behold. Two of the models are electric bicycles, but the real showstopper here is the appropriately-named Brutus. The company has deemed the Brutus 750 the “SUV of motorycles” that is capable of being used as a streetbike, off-roader, and snowmobile, yes a snowmobile, which requires a four hour conversion process and will also have an automatic transmission. Production is planned for the Spring of 2014 and Caterham is aiming for affordable pricing for all the bikes in the range.
Eminem is set to rock the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart next week. The Detroit rapper’s latest album, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” is on course to earn the second-largest sales week of the year and debut at No. 1.
Released Tuesday (Nov. 5), industry sources forecast the new album to sell between 700,000 and 750,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Nov. 10. That should mark the second-biggest sales week of the year for an album, surpassed only by the debut of Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” which opened with 968,000 in March, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The year’s second-biggest week is currently owned by Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same,” which entered at No. 1 with 658,000.
The expected No. 1 arrival of “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” and official sales number, will be announced on Nov. 13. The set will mark Emimem’s seventh consecutive No. 1 album. Of all his releases, only one — his “The Slim Shady LP” debut — missed the top slot. It debuted and peaked at No. 2 in 1999.
While “The Marshall Mathers LP 2″ has only been on sale less than a day, sources can project its first week based on a number of indicators. They include orders from retailers and early sales at digital retail, first-week performance of comparable albums, media exposure, radio and YouTube trends for the album’s singles, and so on. Of course, a forecast is just that. So, Eminem’s official sales figure, as compiled by SoundScan, could ultimately end up different from early estimates.
Eminem’s last album, 2010′s “Recovery,” blasted in at No. 1 with 741,000. And his set before that, 2009′s “Relapse,” entered atop the list with 608,000.
Since 2008, only three hip-hop albums have sold more than 700,000 in a week: Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” in 2008 (1.01 million its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan), Eminem’s “Recovery” and Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” in 2011 (964,000 in its debut).
Eminem is currently tied with Kanye West and Nas for the second-most No. 1 albums among hip-hop acts (they each have six leaders). A new No. 1 would give Eminem the second-place distinction all to himself. Among all hip-hop acts, only Jay Z, with 13 No. 1s, has more. (The all-time champs, among all artists, by the way, are the Beatles, with 19 No. 1s.)
