As a true heritage brand, the original Horex company produced motorbikes for 40 years from 1920 to 1960. The brand was revived in 2010 and its latest offering is a clean, upright 6-cylinder, 6-speed sport bike called the VR6 Classic. Kinda looks like Buell and a late-model Triumph Bonneville mash up. But remember, it’s got German engineering on its side.
Indian is back. Their 3 new big V-Twin cruisers offer modern comfort & performance wrapped in the classic Indian styling of yesteryear. Powered by the Thunderstroke 111 cubic- inch motor, the first all-new Indian motor built in 70 years, these bikes appear to have everything needed to put this classic American nameplate back on the map.
When you get to the emergency room, don’t bother trying to explain that it was an adult Big Wheel and that it seemed perfectly safe. They won’t care. Sure, it’s built to hold riders up to 275 lbs and as tall as 6’6” but that doesn’t mean daddy should go full Evel Knievel.
Luxury and performance, blah, blah, blah. But for real, the new S63 AMG is the most powerful sedan in its class. A 5.5-liter Bi-turbo BlueDIRECT motor boasting 585HP plus construction based on MB’s “AMG Lightweight Performance” philosophy makes it not just fast but more nimble & fuel efficient. The proven 4MATIC AWD system keeps it glued to the street in any weather. Top speed, 155MPH.
Forget you ever laid eyes on a Segway and think about the practicality of an electric scooter. Zips through traffic. Easy to park. Better for the planet. More fun than the bus. Lots of reasons. The all-aluminum Rover is made in Oregon, USA. It’s got a range of 36 miles and a top speed of 33MPH.
30 hours. That’s all the time it takes to build your own wooden sailboat with this DIY kit. Instead of watching 4 more seasons of (insert cable series) you can become the first boatbuilder of the family. A craftsman. A family legend. This kit includes everything you need from top to bottom, bow to stern.
With its 5.7-liter Hemi V8, the 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 is one big, bad truck. And in this new Black Empress Edition you can get that murdered-out, triple-black stealth look right off the dealer lot. It’s de-badged, sitting on 20-inch rims, and boasts a towing capacity of nearly 10,000 lbs.
We’re in the midst of a custom motorcycle renaissance and that garage-born movement is captured in this new hardcover featuring pioneer builders like Walt Siegl, Wrenchmonkees, Deus ex Machina, Shinya Kimura and more as well as images guaranteed to make you drool. Brought to you by our friend Chris Hunter of Bike EXIF.
If you saw the 1977 James Bond classic, The Spy Who Loved Me, you know that his white Lotus Esprit “submarine car” stole the show. And what’s truly crazy about this unbelievable Bond vehicle, is that it was actually a fully functional submarine built by a company called Perry Oceanographic. And now, this crazy sub-car is headed for auction. We’re guessing somewhere in the millions. There are less expensive ownership options for the rest of us. Here and here.
The new Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Edition 1 looks fast and sporty but “modestly priced?”, not really. Actually it is, considering the heat this thing is packing: a turbocharged 360-horse 4-cylinder engine & full AMG treatments including a rear spoiler, graphite grey side stripes, matte black 19-inch wheels, & a black leather interior with red contrast stitching topped off by a pair of ARTICO/DINAMICA sport seats.
