It could body-double as a Lotus and appears to have the snout of an Aston Martin, but this new two-door coupe is a Jaguar. Another surprise, the C-X75 supercar is electric powered by Lithium-Ion batteries and two ultra-efficient electric motors. It’ll go 560 miles on a full charge, but not if you keep it pinned at its top speed of 205 mph.
Super lightweight and versatile, this compact tow-trailer lets you bring everything you want on the road. Even if you drive a Mini, you’ll be able to drag along all your toys: bikes, boards, camping gear, luggage & more. The unique modular design lets you pop the top off for uncovered cargo like a motorcycle or mother-in-law. You know, the big stuff. Payload is up to 1000 pounds, so no need to pack light.
This slick little aircraft is just a helicopter, right? Actually, it’s not. It’s a gyroplane, which combines the propeller of a heli with a fixed-wing rotor in the tail. A centrifugal effect from the rotor makes for smooth, stable flights even in high winds. But here’s the key—in the event of engine failure, you can still perform a controlled landing. That’s way better than exploding on impact. This new model offers side-by-side seating, an upgrade from earlier in-line designs, giving the passenger a much better view.
The term “recreation” means this new custom Mustang Shelby GT500CR from Classic Recreations is not a kit car. Not just a bunch of tacked-on fiberglass panels, but actually built from a real ’67 or ’68 Mustang Fastback and painstakingly transformed into the beast you see here. It looks like the vintage whip on which it’s based, but under the hood, oh boy. An F1-R Supercharger is bolted to the nearly 800 horsepower V-8 Ford motor and that’s why the speedo goes up to 200 MPH.
You’ll feel like a hillbilly Batman when you pull out of the cave on this beast. Cectek’s King Cobra ATV is clearly an aggressive, muscular design and has the balls to back up the body. It packs a single-cylinder, 4-stroke 500EFI motor delivering plenty of power for cruising or crime fighting.
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.
