Over 300,000 of the original Range Rovers had been made when production on the iconic British box ended in 1996. But an upcoming auction for the actual first one, a 1970, chassis numero uno means that if you’re the high bidder, you can own this historic vehicle and it’s only got 89K on the odometer.
At just 120-pounds, this trailer/camper from Sylvan Sports is light enough to be towed behind a motorcycle or small car. The Go-Easy has a diamond plate metal floor with 17.6 cubic feet of storage and the trailer’s rails are compatible with Thule & Yakima rack components. The optional pop-up roof tent sleeps two and doubles as a roofbox you can mount on your car. American made.
Aside from the engine, which comes from a Honda 125 SuperSport, nearly every piece of this new bike from Bandit9 is handmade. The metallic unibody is made from a single block of aluminum & for the creation of the high-gloss, waterproof, burl wood side panels, the Bandit9 boys recruited a guitar luthier & a yacht maker. It’s all bespoke, from the suede seat to the alloy exhaust and only 9 of these little city-street rippers will be made.
It’s the fastest production muscle car ever built. Powered by a supercharged 707 horsepower, 6.2-liter Hemi V-8, this 4-door family sedan does a quarter mile in 11.2 seconds and hits a top speed of 204 MPH then uses massive 15.4-inch Brembo two-piece rotors with six-piston calipers to slow back down.
Hand-built to the original Jaguar standards, the British carmaker is re-creating the iconic E-Type through its Jaguar Heritage & Special Operations program. Constructed entirely of aluminum & featuring a 237c.i. in-line 6, the new Lightweight E-Type will be the first E to roll out of the Browns Lane workshop since 1964. Only 6 will be built.
It’s got its off-road roots but the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR is really a high-riding sports car. A supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with an output of 550 horsepower makes it the most powerful Rover ever, capable of 0-62MPH in 4.5 seconds (or about 1 second slower than the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS).
There are more choices than ever for finding the perfect camping trailer. If a heavy-duty off-grid & off-road shelter, shower, & kitchen fit the bill for your trips, a Turtleback Trailer could be the one. Built on a tube steel frame, their trailers feature 42-gallon water tanks for the sink & shower, a pull-out kitchen with a stainless 2-burner stove, retractable awning, and a choice of optional roof-mounted tents.
John Deere green is a classic color but when the time comes to take your XUV down to the club or out cruising the strip, the Midnight Black Special Edition will blend in much better. For a limited time, two of their most popular Gator models are available with custom matte black paint, black & alloy rims & Maxxis Big Horn tires.
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.
