Let’s face it, making a classic Land Cruiser FJ43 look cool is pretty easy. It came that way. Modern men’s fashion-maven Todd Snyder saw an opening though. He thought the addition of a leather interior—using the same leather from Red Wing’s Heritage Classic boots—would make a sweet upgrade. He was right! Of course this Limited FJ also got a ground-up restoration to bring all systems up to 2020 performance. The slate gray paint was borrowed from Porsche and the vintage 2-door got a completely new 228-horse 4.0-liter V6 and tranny.
Triumph’s powerful Tiger 1200 is a beast of a bike, on-road or off. With the release of 2 new special editions, they’re giving adventure riders even more options for the ultimate all-terrain ride. Sharing the same platform & powerplant as the original, the new Desert Edition & Alpine Edition both feature upgraded titanium Arrow exhausts & quick-shifters. The Desert is dialed for dirt-riding while the Alpine is tuned & tricked out for navigating mountain roads.
GMC just rolled out the new Yukes. That’s the 2021 Yukon, Yukon XL and off-road ready Yukon AT4. Overall, the new model is bigger, with a longer wheelbase and offers more cargo space as well as lots of optional toys and treats—like available air suspension and a 420-hp 6.2-liter V8 or the Denali’s 15-inch multicolor head-up display. Look for the new Yukon—in its full-range of trims & power options—to arrive at dealers by mid-summer.

With the ability to double its size in just 60 seconds, the French-made Beauer 2X camper expands to accommodate 2 adults in a comfortable, modern shelter that’s as easy on the eyes as it is to set up. The nested shell design pulls out horizontally to reveal a bedroom for 2, a fully-equipped L-shaped kitchen, & a small lounge area where the futon opens for additional sleepers.

The forthcoming Pan America is Harley-Davidson’s first ever adventure bike. Like all hogs, it is powered by a V-twin. A liquid-cooled Revolution Max 1,250 cc engine to be exact. Any similarities to a normal Harley end right there. Brembo built the braking system, Michelin developed the tires specifically for the bike. It’s a departure. Built for departures. Big ones. The Pan America will hit HD dealership floors sometime in mid 2020.
Bobsla is not the first snow toy to come out of Austria’s Tirol region. It is however the first electric one we’ve seen. Like a GoKart for the ski slopes, Bobsla is a single-rider EV with dual snowmobile-style tracks powered by a compact 220V system. It sure looks like fun. The question is, will we ever see it shredding ski areas in the U.S.?
There’s a lot going on here. First off, this is a 1968 Lamborghini Espada. Ridiculous & rare to begin with. Then, in 2018, Danton Art Kustoms in France got ahold of it. They agreed a Ferruccio Lamborghini-inspired “Rat Rod” seemed reasonable. Extensive modification ensued. And well, this is it. A true one and only. And now, this extraordinary V12 animal is up for auction through Mecum. Can you guess the magic number?
For 2021, Chevy’s full-size Suburban & Tahoe SUVs will both be longer with more interior space, and the ride comfort significantly smoothed out due to the addition of both independent rear suspension and adaptive suspension all around.

Optional 12.6” screens can be added for rear passengers. “Over the Air” update technology is also new for the 2021 models.
Australian Off Road builds badass camper trailers. The all-new steel-framed and bombproof Sierra is apparently their “most basic model” yet. Well, wow. Because this Outback-ready beast from AOR features a, rugged Raptor-coated fiberglass body, Outback Armour Offroad shocks, a lithium-based electrical system, and all the comforts of home. Fully customizable. Load it with all your toys and tow it to the ends of the earth.
Death Machines Of London has a cool name and they build wild bikes like this one, called Kenzo. Hard to believe it’s a 1977 Honda Gold Wing underneath the handmade aluminum paneling, precision 3D printed parts, & composites, but it really is. So even though it looks like a street-fighting Samurai, it will ride like Grandpa’s Cadillac.
The Snowrider conversion kit turns your motocross bike into a snowbike. It’s a ski-track suspension kit designed and built in Siberia from high-quality materials. There are multiple track lengths and fitment options. A high-impact polymer ski is mounted where the front-tire goes and the snowmobile-style track—with 65mm lugs—mounts on the rear. Riders comfortable with basic maintenance and repair can complete the conversion at home in just an hour using common tools.
The 2020 Audi RS Q8 is the fastest & sportiest Audi SUV yet. A 591-horsepower V8 plus mild hybrid system gives it a top speed of 190MPH with loads of torque. It features adaptive AWD, an active anti-roll system & rear-wheel steering. Flagship features & finish from its moon roof to its 23-inch Pirelli P Zero tires mark it as a mean machine.
The world’s first Mercedes-Maybach SUV has arrived. The 2021 GLS 600 features two-tone candy paint, 22-inch rims, and an interior that looks like next year’s Learjet Liberty—everything you expect of the marque. It’s powered by a 500-hp V8 and the vehicle raises and lowers automatically on an AirMatic system to make it easier to get in & out.
For 2021, Lexus is adding a convertible variant of the sporty LC500 to its lineup. Despite its sunny Sunday drive looks, this is one mean Lex, powered by a naturally-aspirated 471-horsepower 5-liter V8.

The forthcoming 2020 Aston Martin DBX will debut as the British supercar brand’s first-ever SUV.

It offers 5 dynamic drive modes as well as adaptive air suspension & an active anti-roll system. Looks pretty cool, too.
McLaren is rolling out a new limited-edition range of exotic supercars under a fresh moniker: The Ultimate Collection. The first in the series is a nearly $2 million open-top roadster called the Elva. With no roof, windshield, or side glass, this is a track car that’s technically road legal. Powered by a 803-horsepower twin-turbo V8, it hits 62 MPH sub 3 and blasts out to 124 MPH in 6.7 seconds. Only 399 will be made.
Ferrari’s all-new Roma Coupe is a 611 horsepower 2-door powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 & driven by an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The interior is luxe and a robust range of advanced driver-focused tech ensure it feels as good as it looks. And with its clean flowing lines and balanced design the Roma is a more low-key Ferrari, if such a thing is possible at 198 MPH.
