The newest Polaris-built Indian is The Scout, a model that hadn’t been revamped since it was dubbed “the world’s fastest Indian” back in 1967. Unveiled this week at Sturgis, the man-sized classic cruiser weighs in at a hefty 562-pounds, powered by a 1133cc V-twin that churns out 100 horsepower.
The Slingshot rolls on 3 wheels but that’s where similarities to the the Can-Am Spyder end. Polaris’ new 173-horse roadster is not some snowmobile with wheels; it’s more car than cycle; powered by a 2.4-liter GM Ecotec motor with passengers sitting side-by-side at a road-hugging 5-inches off the road.
Remember the Porsche Cayenne? Well, it appears Porsche finally has, too. For the release of four new Cayenne models, they’ve updated the front-end & rear-end styling and ditched the base model for 2015, offering an upgraded Cayenne Diesel, the Cayenne S, a new S E-Hybrid and the top-of-the-line Cayenne Turbo.
Inside a motorcycle helmet seems like maybe the best place yet for a heads-up display. The Skully AR-1 is it, the world’s 1st HUD-enabled helmet. A 180º camera eliminates blindspots, it also features internet, phone, & music capabilities via voice-command, a push button tinted view activation & stacks of other features. Currently seeking beta testers.
When the V12 Vantage Roadster is released later this year, it will be Aston Martin’s speediest & fastest accelerating roadster ever. The 6-liter V12 puts out 565 horses, that goes zero to 60 in 3.9 seconds; upshift a few more gears & you’ll be going 200-mph with the top down.
Basically, it’s 186-miles-per-hour of luxury. Just unveiled, the all-new 2015 S65 AMG Coupe looks very similar to the (also pretty new) S63 but features an icier chrome grill, yellow brake calipers, & a different style of 20-inch wheels. The 6-liter V12 puts out 621 horses controlled by a 7-speed AMG Speedshift.
The Mercedes Unimog is a legendary WWII-era German 4X4 that’s developed a fanatical global following. This perfectly restored 1976 4-seater lived its first life as a military airfield vehicle and features an 84-horse diesel motor and a fresh glossy coat of army green paint.
This luxury motorhome is also a boat. On the freeway it will drive just as slow as the others RVs, though it is reported to hit 80. And out on the open ocean it will do 7 knots. That’s about as fast as granddad paddling his canoe in a headwind but when you can fish for dinner out the kitchen window and cook it onboard, what’s the rush?

Pretty much Transformers right here. As you see, the Quadski is a quad that turns into a watercraft. This is the new XL model. Bigger and better. Powered by a 1300CC BMW engine, it will hit speeds of 45mph on both land & sea, making island-hopping more fun for you and a friend.
