• Delahaye “Bella Figura” Bugnotti Coupe: A Classic Reimagined

    Delahaye “Bella Figura” Bugnotti Coupe: A Classic Reimagined

    Unlike other retro kit car makers, who replicate classic car shapes into less-than-palatable forms, Delahaye USA looks to put their own stamp on them. Their new Delahaye “Bella Figura” Bugnotti Coupe, for instance, reimagines the 1937 Bugatti Type 57S into the form they envision it would have been made into today. More than a poor carbon copy of the classic, the car uses the original as a starting point and proceeds to interpret it with a slew of stylish changes. [...]

  • EcoRoamer, Your New Post-Apocalypse Dream Vehicle

    EcoRoamer, Your New Post-Apocalypse Dream Vehicle

    Beastly in size and appearance, the EcoRoamer is the kind of truck you want to be driving in a post-apocalypse wasteland. It can crush everything in its path, run over treacherous terrains and travel across distant lands while minimizing its ecological footprint. Oh yeah, it’s a fully-livable mobile home too, so it’s the perfect companion for your newfound nomadic lifestyle. Not content with building a trailer straight out of Thunderdome, creator Jay Shapiro has sold his company and home, intent [...]

  • World’s Largest Jeep Replica Blows It Up To 400% Scale, Actually Runs

    World’s Largest Jeep Replica Blows It Up To 400% Scale, Actually Runs

    That picture above is not an optical trick. Instead, it’s the real, actual world’s largest Jeep and that small man is actually a normal-sized Sheikh. Owned by Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, the supersized Willy’s replica towers 21-feet tall and is, in fact, a 400% scale of the actual wartime classic it is based from. Why would someone want a vehicle that big? You wouldn’t be asking that question if you knew that Hamad is also known as the [...]

  • BBQ Dragster Cooks Your Burgers On Wheels

    BBQ Dragster Cooks Your Burgers On Wheels

    Despite its top fuel dragster looks, the BBQ Dragster isn’t designed to hang with racers competing in NHRA events. When you’ve got a hankering for some beer and steaks, though, this odd-looking vehicle with two large grills on top is exactly what you’ll be running for. Created by Tom Gasper, a design engineer for Tavens Container and an after-market fabricator of car parts for Pro Street Customs, the unusual barbecue setup has been in the works since October, when he [...]

  • Monowalker Goes From Bike Trailer To Handcart To Backpack

    Monowalker Goes From Bike Trailer To Handcart To Backpack

    Hiking, biking or doing any sort of outdoor exploration with heavy baggage in tow isn’t the smartest thing. Hauling all of that on your back like a beast of burden is even worse. The Monowalker, a versatile three-in-one trailer, should help make your life easier. Made up of a lightweight wooden platform (35.4 x 18.9 inches) that can be outfitted with multiple handlebars and up to two wheels, you can use the rig in any one of three ways: a [...]

  • It’s A Limo, It’s A Train, It’s…Superbus?!?

    It’s A Limo, It’s A Train, It’s…Superbus?!?

    It looks more like a super-stretched limo than a bus, but the latter is exactly what the Superbus is billing itself. While it can’t fly like anything carrying a “super” in its name should do, the new concept vehicle can ferry passengers with utmost convenience, all while proposing a novel, more flexible solution for public transport. Designed by a team at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands, the Superbus puts sustainable mobility at the forefront. The [...]

  • Xylon Bikes Hand-Builds Frames From Timber

    Xylon Bikes Hand-Builds Frames From Timber

    Steel is cool, but wood has a timeless quality that just takes your breath away. Even on a bike. Xylon Bikes makes a point of it with their gorgeous wooden frames, which combine a clean, modern design with funky geometric shapes. Bicycle frames made from wood? Yes, indeed.  Not that they will perform better than aluminum or steel, but the sheer uniqueness of one should be reason enough to attract attention unto themselves. They’re not just slabs of timber randomly [...]

    Treadmill Bike Puts Your Jogging Machine On Wheels

    As functional as it might have been, last year’s Rollator was admittedly a quirky idea implemented with a lack of polish. The Treadmill Bike, which works much the same way, brings a little more style to go with your part-exercise, part-personal transport machine. The name says it all: it’s a a bike that’s also a treadmill. Instead of pedaling to put the wheels into motion, you run on the treadmill tracks to get it moving. Yes, just like jogging, except [...]

    Donkervoort D8 235 E Pairs A 235-Bhp Engine With Ultra-Light 1,300-Lbs

    We’re not sure what Donkervoort means (or if it even means anything, really, other than being Joost Donkervoot’s surname), but it’s my new favorite word for the day. Strike that. It’s my favorite for the next 100 years. Sorry, Snuffleupagus. You had a good run, but the last time your name sounded funny was when I still watched Sesame Street. Which was yesterday on VHS. Anyway, the reason we’re donkervoorting right now is because Donkervoort Automobielen BV recently announced their [...]

    GeigerCars Hummer H2 Bomber Rolls Out The Snow Tracks In Spring

    It’s spring. Which means it’s the perfect time for GeigerCars to unveil the Hummer H2 Bomber, a modified version of the iconic four-door SUV designed to run on snow. The German tuner has created numerous variants of Hummers over the years, from a custom 700hp H2 for a Texas cop to a Martini Racing-inspired H3. Obviously, the American brand’s demise isn’t enough to stop them from grinding out more and this latest creation pretty much makes that statement. A statement [...]

    Shadow Electric eBike Sheds Spokes, Wires, Non-Bright Colors

    Daymak Inc. calls their Shadow eBike “the most advanced electric bike today.” The claim does sound a little lofty, but I’ll give them this: it’s definitely intriguing.  Not because of the ultra-bright yellow paint job either. How? Well, it’s the first bicycle I’ve seen that’s both spokeless and wireless. You heard that right. There are no spokes on the wheels and there are absolutely no wires – not even ones hiding inside the frame. It’s not the kind of thing [...]

    Magpul Ronin: The Buell 1125R Redesigned

    What happens to a Buell 1125R when a company who makes firearm accessories decides to customize it? It turns into the Magpul Ronin, which looks like the kind of motorcycle your favorite costumed supervillain would ride while wreaking havoc throughout the city. According to the Colorado-based company, they were thrilled when they first heard that Buell was working on a water-cooled superbike. Being big motorcycle fans, they looked forward to the 1125R’s release, but felt deeply disappointed with both the [...]

  • Ultimate Road Rage Machine: Scooter With Flamethrower

    Ultimate Road Rage Machine: Scooter With Flamethrower

    On a hotness scale of 1 to 10, a 60mph scooter will seldom get past being rated a 6. Unless you equip it to fart deadly flames, that is, just like Lincolnshire resident Colin Fruze did. A scooter is hardly a scary road rage machine. With this thing in tow, though, you can literally wreak some havoc on the road.  Want to side-swipe me? Burn to a crisp, you big fat SUV. Oooh, your Harley is so badass. Boom! Now [...]

    Natural Born Killa Custom Lowrider Gets Skulls, Pinstripes And…Kandy Magenta?

    If the Addams family grew up in the midst of Lowrider culture and developed an affinity for the color magenta, this is the bike Pugsley would have gotten on his birthday: the Natural Born Killa. A custom lowrider created by 23-year old Dany Morales, the bike has been a work in progress for the last fifteen years. He first received it as a hand-me-down from one of his older brothers when he was eight and has been the canvas of [...]

  • Rotel Tours’ Hotel Bus Feature Beds, Private Rooms

    Rotel Tours’ Hotel Bus Feature Beds, Private Rooms

    Calling this thing a “hotel on wheels” is being generous. At the current state of public buses, though, having a semi-private booth with a cramped bed does sound mighty luxurious. And that’s exactly what Rotel Tours’ “rolling hotel” buses bring to commuters. A 3 x 3 x 6 feet room with a curtain for a door might not sound much. During longer trips, however, having that bed (which fills the entire floor area, by the way) to lie down on [...]

    BMW M Bike: M Stands For…Manual Pedaling?

    When luxury automobile manufacturers get into making mechanical rides, it’s hard not to take notice. That’s why the BMW M Bike, a limited-edition pedal-pusher from the German automaker, is getting plenty of attention. It’s hard to gauge just how well this bike will ride, given that our experience of the company have been mostly relegated to cars and motorcycles. While I doubt this can stand up to your top-of-the-line road bikes, BMW should make up for it with its bevy [...]

    A One-Off, Kid-Sized 1992 Ferrari F40 Goes On Sale

     A one-of-a-kind Ferrari just went on sale at Hemmings. While not technically a real Prancing Horse, this 1992 Ferrari F40 is a kid-sized two-seater, created as a novelty prop for the opening of the very first Ferrari dealership in Moscow. While it is, for all intents and purposes, a novelty, the kiddie car does set itself up as the king of all junior rides. Put together in Germany, it was designed and built by the same guys who does [...]

    2011 Mercedes Benz E-Class Cabriolet Upgrades Convertibles For Four-Season Use

    Convertibles are awesome – when the top is off. Once that roof comes down, the whole thing can feel severely cramped, far from the luxury vehicle it’s supposed to be. The 2011 Mercedes Benz E-Class Cabriolet thinks it can do something about that. Unless you live in an area where days are always warm and still, it’s silly to be driving a convertible with the roof off most of the year. Not with the stylish new drop-top, though. The company [...]
