Are you ready for this? You sure? Okay, this is an electric motorcycle, um, superbike. Not quite the two-wheeled Prius you would’ve expected, right? Looks more like a Buellcati or a stunt bike from Tron. With no clutch and incredible torque you’ll go from 0-180 miles-an-hour like you’re floating on air. Full charge lasts nearly 300 miles. This is evolution, get on board.
Following on the heels of popular new Wrangler variants like the Islander, Mountain, and Call Of Duty: Black Ops editions, Jeep is dropping a new one. The Mojave is inspired by its namesake Southern California desert—it features a monochromatic sand colored paint scheme with black trim and lizard logo accents on the hood and interior. Basically, it’s a restyled Rubicon and if you aren’t sure about a big lizard on your hood, tell the dealer to remove it. Available June 2011.
News Flash: Mercedes’ latest reveal, the concept A-Class is coming to the U.S. They haven’t said exactly when yet, but it’s confirmed. This could easily be the most bad-ass MB ever put into production. Yeah, it’s small but it looks more like a beast than a “baby Benz” to us. What do you think?
To celebrate the Camaro’s 45-year peel-out & speeding ticket legacy, Chevy is releasing an anniversary model. The real story however is the on-going, decades-long pissing match between Ford’s Mustang & the Camaro. The 45th year Camaro houses a 323-horse V6 edging out Ford’s 6-cylinder by 11 horses. On top of superior power & torque, this Camaro also has a totally sweet black leather interior, custom badges, paint and comes stock with aluminum twenties. Sorry Ford, maybe next year.
Stop dreaming and start flying. The Jetlev is a jetpack made for personal flight. Yeah, just like George Jetson, but not a cartoon. Jetlev is real. Using the thrust of pressurized water, the pack carries the pilot through the air with ease. Don’t worry about how it works; it’s really complicated, but totally safe.
For 2012, the Volkswagen Beetle got a sex change or rather a … gender reassignment. What we’re trying to say is the “people’s car” now has some balls. A total redesign has created a new body that is lower, 3.3 inches wider and noticeably more aggressive. There are three trim options, the sportiest of which features a 2 liter, 200-horse motor. Another option is their clean diesel model hitting 40 MPG.
Ingredients: JetSki, bi-plane, ultralight, snowmobile, rollercoaster, boomerang. Add all ingredients into the blender and press pureé. Once the ingredients have blended, you’ve got a FlyNano. Pour it into the water and you can now go skimming along the surface before lifting off & flying away. No pilot’s license is needed, but health insurance is highly recommended.
Back in the 80s, President Ronald Reagan drove a Jeep CJ-8, aka the Scrambler. But for some reason, Jeep stopped making their pickup style truck in ’86. Now, they’re offering factory-made conversion kits. One is a weld-free, bolt-on unit for you DIY guys. The other is a show-quality unit installed at the dealership. Both offer a 50-inch bed, fiberglass cap and everything else you need to switch it over.

This ultra-rare Lancia was probably one of your favorite Hot Wheels cars as a kid, but did you know it was a real car? The model on auction is a 1970 Lancia Stratos HF “Zero.” Design-wise, this car was the predecessor to the iconic Lamborghini Countach that emerged a year later; its wedge-body shape is ultra-low to the ground and get this … you get in by opening the windshield. It was fully restored in 2000, even getting back its original bronze color. What would you pay?
