The Dub Box has everything that’s awesome about a classic Volkswagen camper bus minus the miniscule engine. Ditching that and turning it into a trailer makes it much more roadworthy while still retaining its charms as a classic stabbin’ cabin. The trailers are not made from old busses but made entirely of fiberglass and Custom-built to order in Oregon.
Calling these things mobile homes or even worse, trailers, would do these rolling cabins a dis-service. They are after all framed and built-to-order with wood by a carpenter, just like a stationary cabin. Wheelhaus is currently offering three models, The Caboose that has a loft for sleeping, the pitched-roof Rail Car model, & the Airstream-inspired Silo. Delivered to anywhere you want all ready to be patched into plumbing and power.
This is the 650S, McLaren’s new supercar based on their 12C model. They are adamant in saying it is not a replacement for the 12C. At least for now. The new 650S is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that pushes 641 horses, it features a driver-adjustable suspension called ProActive Chassis Control, and it will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The most noteworthy new feature on the re-designed Ferrari California T convertible, is the new turbo-charged V8 sitting under the Pininfarina-designed hood. That powerplant puts out 560-horses and serious torque, and somehow people think of the California as the “entry-level” Ferrari. Yeah, okay.
Last year it was just a concept car but now it’s the 2015 S-Class coupe, equipped with a twin-turbo 450-horse V8 and a new technology called: active curve tilting function. When a pair of cameras on the car’s front end detect an upcoming turn, it automatically leans the car into the turn like a motorcycle. The car makes its official debut next month at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
Instead of buying two different gas-powered vehicles to pollute the forest air, the Mountain Horse Snow Bike kit lets you convert your dirt bike into a snowmobile, effectively giving you two vehicles in one, each perfectly suited to their respective season. It’s also much lighter than a regular snowmobile and easier to wheelie, too. via
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.
