    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 [...]

    Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster: Meet Aston Martin’s Fastest Droptop To Date

    The V12 Vantage S isn’t only the highest performing vehicle Aston Martin ever built, it’s also the most driver-focused.  This time around, the automaker is making the latest iteration of the wild beast of a ride even more fun by taking the top off with the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster. Like the coupe, the new car pairs the company’s biggest engine with the Vantage S’ iconic compact body.  Described as a “devilishly charismatic driving machine,” it’s an undeniable [...]

    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 [...]

    Gerry Judah’s Mercedes-Benz Sculpture ShowcasesTwo Cars Flying Over The Goodwood House

    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, [...]

    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 [...]

Similar to Carplay, the system will hook up your Android phone via cable, essentially using the vehicle’s display as a screen casting accessory.  Rather than put [...]

    Iconic motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has announced their first ever electric motorcycle.  Called Project Livewire, it’s not a full-fledged commercial product just yet.  Instead, the company will be touring it around, giving potential customers a chance to test-ride the bike, then using feedback from that campaign to determine how it moves forward with the product. The campaign, called “The Project LiveWire Experience,” will be a cross-country tour along Route 66 that starts in New York and continues to 29 other US [...]

    Bentley Continental GT3-R Turns The Luxury Grand Tourer Into A Sports Beast

    Bentleys aren’t exactly slow-running cars, but they’re far from being known as race-focused spitfires either.  That changes soon with the Bentley Continental GT3-R, a limited-edition driver-focused version of its race-winning Continental GT3. Limited to just 300 examples, the vehicle will be hand-built in Crewe just like the rest of its luxury-focused Continental brethren.  Before shipping to showrooms, though, it will pass by Bentley’s Motorsport division, where it gets tweaked and fine-tuned to effect serious improvements in performance. Powered by a [...]

    We’re huge fans of the Quadski and its double-duty talents, ripping through bodies of water as capably as it does on rugged terrains.  Except it only had enough space to sit one, which ruled out meeting a girl at the beach and spending the day impressing her with your amphibious driving skills.  Not the case with the new Quadski XL, a two-seater version of the versatile recreational ride. Like its single-seat brother, the vehicle can transform from ATV to watercraft [...]

    Chances are, you’d scoff at the prospect of getting a cargo kick scooter when you can get a cargo bike – the latter just seems a lot easier to use when ferrying heavy goods. The Nimble Cargo Scooter, however, makes a strong case for serving as your load-hauling ride of choice. Designed for short distance cargo trips, it boasts a more compact size compared to cargo bikes, all while managing to carry cargo up to 300 pounds. While that weight includes the [...]

    You love the Ducati Monster 1200 and its Herculean physique, but aren’t quite ready to handle the responsibilities of a 1200cc beast between your legs. Maybe the new Ducati Monster 821, which brings similar brawny aesthetics while packing a more manageable 821cc powertrain, will be more along your speed. Powered by a water-cooled, 821-cubic-centimeter Testastretta 11° V-twin engine, Ducati’s new naked model pushes out 112 horsepower and 65.9 pound-feet of torque.

    For years, Google has retrofitted existing cars with their self-driving system to test viability of the technology on the road. This time, they’re taking the next step: putting together a self-driving vehicle from scratch. Unveiled at Re/code by Sergey Brin, the self-driving car prototype is purpose-built for ferrying passengers autonomously. As such, they took out all the parts that people use when they drive, churning out a car that has no steering wheel, pedals, mirrors, gauges, and other vehicle staples. [...]

Instead, it uses a folding mechanism that cleverly tucks those parts in, allowing the whole stroller to strap into the vehicle like any regular rearward-facing car seat. Made by Simple Parenting, it’s described as “the world’s first infant car seat with a complete and fully integrated mobility solution.” When going from stroller to car seat, you simply retract [...]

Unlike previous versions of the self-balancing one-person ride, the new Segway comes with an extra wheel, making it a full-fledged tricycle instead of the original two-wheeled oddity it used to be. Sure, this [...]

    Described as “the most powerful muscle car in Chrysler history,” the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat brings a whopping 600-plus horsepower. Packing performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, it’s definitely one of the most exciting muscle coupes we’ve seen in recent times. That massive power comes courtesy of the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8, which boasts a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces, high-strength forged alloy pistons, heat-treated aluminum-alloy cylinder heads, and die-cast aluminum rocker covers. The engine can be mated to [...]

Sure, maybe they won’t look the same, but the feature set is exactly what suits these modern connected times. Unlike traditional bike locks, it’s impossible to pick. No, they didn’t put a genius locking system into it — it just doesn’t open with a traditional key, so there’s no way to access the lock [...]
