    Scorpion Trike Conversion Kit Turns Your V-Rod Into A Reverse Muscle Trike

Created by Wisconsin-based Superior Design, the conversion requires no frame modifications, allowing it to be installed during the course of a single afternoon.  The finished product looks positively beastly, albeit a little silly as [...]

    Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster: This 2,163cc Motorcycle Is Dripping In Machismo

    Some motorcycles are so pretty, they make you grunt in admiration on sight.  Others look so out of this world, you find yourself unable to peel your eyes away.  The Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster, on the other hand, is so macho, your body’s testosterone production will get jacked up any time you’re around it.  Seriously, it’s better than TRT. This newest model is based on last year’s X132 Hellcat, but comes with a body that’s been restyled and reworked by [...]

    LightMode Turns Motorcycle Helmets Into Futuristic-Looking Light-Up Headwear

    While LightMode was created for the purpose of increasing a motorcycle rider’s visibility during nighttime, we want it for a different reason.  Honestly, it looks like a super-simple way to turn an erstwhile boring motorcycle helmet into a light-filled futuristic headwear fit for a high-tech dystopian future.  It’s awesome. A permanent helmet modification, it can adorn your high-tech Skully P1 Motorcycle Helmet with electroluminescent (EL) strips to keep you easy to spot at night.  Even better, you can install the [...]

    Renovo Coupe Electric Supercar Brings 500 HP, 1000 Pound-Feet Of Torque

    You see the Renovo Coupe sitting in a parking lot and you expect it to blast out of there with the deafening roar of a supercharged V8.  Except somebody does step inside and drives it out of there while barely making a whimper.  That’s right, this beautiful supercar is all electric. Described as “the first all-American electric supercar,” the vehicle wraps the latest in performance EV technology under a factory-modified Shelby Daytona CSX9000.  And it doesn’t disappoint, with numbers that [...]

    2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: Quickest, Fastest, Most Powerful Factory Sedan Ever

    When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was announced, it was, easily, the most powerful muscle car in automotive history.  Not ashamed to repeat the same trick, Dodge is applying the same treatment onto the Charger.  That’s right, they made a 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which the company is hailing as the “quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan ever.” Described as “the world’s only four-door muscle car,” it runs a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that produces a whopping [...]

    HexHog ATV Wheelchair Uses An Articulated Chassis That Conforms To Any Terrain

    Surviving the apocalypse while bound to a wheelchair probably sucks.  Because, you know, everybody will head up to the woods to seek out safe shelter and they don’t even have any ramps in there.  Fortunately, we’ve been seeing a growing list of options in mobility transport rigged for off-road use and this new HexHog is, arguably, the king of the lot. Technically classified as an ATV, the one-person transporter is equipped to traverse erstwhile inaccessible terrains.  Whether you’re traveling over [...]

    2015 Range Rover Sport SVR Tows The Line Between Sports Car And Off-Roader

    The luxury SUV segment has evolved into a truly interesting beast, with sportier models showing up year after year.  Land Rover’s latest, the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR, continues that trend, bringing the fastest and most powerful vehicle ever to wear the badge. Powered by a supercharged 5.0 liter V8 mated to the same critically acclaimed ZF eight-speed automatic on the Jaguar XF, the vehicle boasts 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque.  That is, apparently, enough power to send [...]

    2015 Indian Scout Motorcycle: A Legend Returns

    Even though it ceased production in 1949, the Indian Scout continues to be one of the most coveted bikes among motorcycle enthusiasts.  Simply put, it’s a true classic.  Which is why it’s no surprise that Polaris’ recent revival of the Indian Motorcycles brand will include the 2015 Indian Scout, which reintroduces the model to an entirely new generation of riders. Billed as a “contemporary yet classic interpretation” of the famous cruiser bike, it is, easily, the coolest addition to the [...]

    Navdy Puts A Voice-Controlled HUD On Your Car’s Windshield

    Turning the windscreen into a heads-up display is sounding more and more like it’s going to be a definite part of the future of cars.  It just makes so much sense.  While Jaguar’s sophisticated windscreen HUD will probably take a few years to realize, motorists can get a pseudo-taste of that future with the Navdy, a dashboard accessory that displays important items through a transparent display set against the vehicle’s windshield. While it’s not the first device to bring a [...]

    Motoped Survival Bike Is Equipped To Support Your Post-Apocalypse Off-The-Grid Lifestyle

    Sure, the CB4 Hunting Bike looks like an excellent vehicle for backwoods exploration, but the lack of a motorized powertrain means you’ll have to kill your legs clearing uphill slopes and rugged terrains to make your way around.  That’s not a problem with the Motoped Survival Bike, a moped/mountain bike hybrid that’s armed to the teeth with outdoor survival gear. If you’re not familiar with Motoped, it’s a downhill mountain bike that’s mounted on a custom frame and powered by [...]

    Hennessey Venom F5 Wants To Destroy Asphalt Like A 290-MPH Tornado

    One look and there’s no mistaking the Hennessey Venom F5 as anything but the kind of car that will make your wife freak out if you ever brought one home.  It’s unapologetically loud, uncompromisingly aggressive, and insanely fast.  Seriously, the parade of women who will want to step inside for a ride will be the last thing on her mind. The successor to the 270-mph Hennessey Venom GT, the supercar will step it up even harder in the speed department.  [...]

    Polaris Slingshot: This Exotic-Looking Three-Wheeled Beauty Starts At Just $20K

    Polaris, the guys behind some of the gnarliest ATV off-roaders available, are making a 3 wheeled car/motorcycle.  Well, a car that looks like a three-wheeled Ariel Atom, all while being technically classified as a motorcycle.  It’s called the Polaris Slingshot and it just might become one of the most tempting purchases of next year. Like a car, it has an open-air cockpit with a steering wheel, a stick shift, and side-by-side bucket seats for two in the cabin.  However, the rear [...]

    Porsche 911 Turbo S GB Edition: Congratulations UK, You Get Your Very Own Exclusive 911

    We’re not privy to Porsche’s sales figures in the UK, but we’re guessing it must be good.  Why else would the luxury automaker build the Porsche 911 Turbo S GB, a special-edition 911 exclusively for Prince Harry’s domain? Released in commemoration of the 911’s 40th year anniversary (very first one was produced in 1974), the vehicle takes the standard 911 Turbo S and gives it a little British flair.  Well, somewhat. Inside, the car gets special “Guards Red” stitching, custom-made [...]

    Jaguar Virtual Windscreen Turns Your Car Into A Virtual Simulator

    If our future roads do end up populated by self-driving cars, then the need for a technology like the Jaguar Virtual Windscreen is likely to be nonexistent.  In the meantime, it’s something we’d definitely like to have in any vehicle we drive now. Made by Jaguar Land Rover, the concept device uses technology similar to existing HUDs and telematics recorders, but steps things up by turning driving into a game-like experience, complete with a variety of stats and 3D objects [...]

    While the cars are, obviously, the highlight of every Goodwood Festival of Speed, this year’s automobiles received serious competition from the giant sculpture set up outside the event facility.  And deservedly so. Created by London-based artist Gerry Judah, the Mercedes-Benz Sculpture puts a pair of the automaker’s race cars atop an arching track that towers close to 300 feet above the ground. The track goes all the way from one side of the Goodwood House to the other, literally soaring [...]

    Bike Lust: Greg Hageman’s Custom Yamaha Virago XV750

    Before its current incarnation, this customized Yamaha Virago XV750 was a non-runner stuck in the garage (hopefully, with a Chillerator next to it), requiring too much work for the owner to try to fix up all by himself.  So he went to builder Greg Hageman, who not only restored it to running form, but rebuilt the now-dated chopper into a sporty-looking ride that looks fit plying our modern streets. Crafted using a 1995 model donor, the Yamaha Virago XV750 trades [...]

    We can’t fault you if you’re among the many who thought hydrogen cars are dead in the water.  Hey, I thought the same.  Turns out we were wrong.  So wrong, in fact, that possibly the highest-profile production fuel cell vehicle, the Toyota FCV, is hitting showrooms worldwide beginning next year. First seen as a concept at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show, the production Toyota FCV doesn’t depart too far from the original.  Most of the differences (mainly the side mirrors, [...]

    Ariel Ace Can Be Cruiser, Naked Bike, Sports Bike Or Any Other Bike You Want

    Fifty years after they produced their last motorcycle, the innovative minds behind the Ariel Atom are back with a new two-wheeled road-raging behemoth.  And it’s unlike any other.  Called the Ariel Ace, it is, quite possibly, the most customizable motorcycle in the world. Out of all the bike parts, the only things that aren’t customizable are the engine, the Ducati-ish machined aluminum frame, and the transmission.  Everything else, from the fork to the seat to the exhaust system to the [...]
