The High Desert special edition package for Chevy’s Silverado 1500 offers a trunk-like storage system in the bed with compartments you can move & configure to suit your needs. A hard tonneau cover is also integrated into the design as well as sail-shaped panels and roll bar-like trim behind the cab; recalling the now discontinued Avalanche.
Custom car-maker Donkervoort made its mark in the early 2000s when it set the lap record at the renowned Nürburgring. The record-breaking D8 GTO-RS is back for 2016/7 with an overhauled body design and performance package. Powered by an Audi 2.5L R5 TFSI, the new street-legal D8 becomes the fastest, lightest Donkervoort yet. Limited edition of 40 cars.
With a highly portable design that uses a large tire inner-tube, the GoBoat sets up & breaks down in a matter of minutes to fit in the trunk of your car. Pump it up with the included foot-pump, clamp on an electric trolling motor, & you’ve got a versatile, stable watercraft that will get you out there for duck hunting, fishing, or just having fun.
With its sporty 689cc parallel twin, Yamaha’s FZ-07 makes a versatile platform for customization. Taipei’s Rough Crafts workshop took it to the limit with their muscular, matte-grey Onyx Blade. A completely custom-built tank, tail & front end section, new adjustable front shocks & stacks of other custom bits turned a stock, mid-weight street bike into a mean, traffic dodging machine. via
Designed for the serious rider, the water-tight, 25-liter Speedway roll-top pack from Velomacchi keeps your cargo close to your center of gravity and features a 3-point rotating harness & a torso size adjustment cam lock system. A magnetic sternum coupler provides hands-free closure & the shoulder straps tuck away when not in use.
Everyone can agree that the Defender is one of the best-looking 4X4s ever made. Regarding mechanics & performance—that’s another story. But ICON fixed it, re-fitting this classic with an all-new 6.2-liter GM Erod V8 & a ¾-ton GM automatic transmission. In the overhaul process they updated & upgraded the grill, interior, and loads of other details.
LiftTrax offer portable traction that will get your 4X4 unstuck & back in action when you’ve steered it into mud, sand & other sticky situations. When you’re high-centered or down in the ditch, simply unroll LiftTrax, inflate, place under the free-spinning wheel and drive out. They’re made of fabric & reinforced with a PVC coating & 1/4″ thick rubber ribs for optimum traction.
With its torquey upgrade to a 400-horsepower, 5-cylinder power plant and a decidedly aggro front fascia, the all-new 2017 TT RS has come a long way from its earliest iterations as the German Miata. Available as a coupe or a roadster, the Quattro-equipped AWD TT slides through all 7 gears via its dual-clutch S-Tronic transmission. NO word yet on whether Audi will offer a manual shifting model or when it may arrive in the USA.
For the newest 1200cc member of the Sportster family, Harley ditched the chrome and tweaked the tech & performance specs. The frame rake is slightly steeper & the front end got a set of 43mm inverted forks & dual disks. For deeper lean angles, they gave the Roadster more clearance and suspension travel. Black cast aluminum wheels and engine cases finish this factory-custom bare knuckle build.
You could call the E-Class sedan boaty but Mercedes’ futuristic Granturismo Motor Yacht leaves that high & dry.

JBL sound, built-in wine storage & powered by dual 480-horse engines.
