Drafting off the success of their Rivale 800 motard, MV Agusta has now rolled out the Brutale 800 Dragster, a new naked streetfighter packing a powerful punch with its throaty in-line 3 and a long list of Italian performance parts from the likes of Brembo & Marzocchi.
Right out of the crate, the Ducati 999S is one of the sickest bikes on the planet. But turning it over to respected New York bike builder Stefano Venier means it’s going to get nuts. He converted this ex-racer into a street machine that pushes upwards of 150 hp. If you don’t die before getting it into 3rd gear you might notice that nearly every part from front to back has been tweaked, upgraded or straight-up custom built by Venier.
Sorta like the Sit-N-Spin but you won’t get dizzy and throw up your animal crackers on the RYNO. It’s a one-wheeled electric vehicle, part bike, part Segway (but cooler looking), & it rolls along at 10mph with a range of about 10-miles.
This inflatable 9-foot sailboat fits in the back of your car and can go from the trunk to floating in the water in under 5 minutes. It’s designed for 4 people, with a payload of 1100 pounds and you can sail it, paddle it like a rowboat or mount a motor up to 8HP on the back to make it go.
It’s hard to believe that Lincoln has continued to produce it’s super-sized SUV the Navigator for the last 7 years without changing a thing. But finally they’ve updated it. For 2015 it got a new EcoBoost 6 engine, much needed interior upgrades, and they replaced the plastic budget bling grill with a cleaner one that looks more like the MKZ front-end & it features LED lights.
Here’s a pair of fresh built steeds from the hallowed halls of the Deus garage. Together they’re called Sibling Rivalry; a pair of Honda XR650R enduros transformed into street-ripping cafe bikes. One is called Boodaak & the other goes by Dakdaak, names derived from the motor tone of these tuned-up, one-off customs.
The biggest, baddest Benz just got replaced by a new one that’s bigger and badder. The new 2014 S600 is M-B’s’ most luxurious sedan & it’s powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine and is literally loaded with futuristic features like Collision Prevention Assist and a jet fighter-inspired Heads Up Display.
Without any modifications to your truck, this all-terrain tread system will turn your pickup into a tank. Or a snowcat. Simply drive up the loading ramps onto the treads, lock ’em down, and then go drive your truck through a snowbank, mudbog, swamp, & other places you could never go before.
Unveiled this week in Detroit, Porsche’s 2014 911 Targa features the same 350-horse flat six found in other models, as well as that same snappy gearbox – but the Targa, true to its heritage, is of course the drop top variant. This year the roof gets popped & dropped mechanically & stows under the rear glass. The addition of the silver “Targa bar” marks a return to the Targa’s original form.
At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Chevy unveiled the new 2015 Z06 Corvette. Packing over 600-horsepower, this new American supercar has deep racing roots—borrowing engineering from the LeMans winning C7R ’Vettes tweaked just enough to make them (barely) legal for the streets.
