The Frictionator claims it’s the only street legal jet truck in the world, and with a 7,000 hp GE J85 jet engine, we ain’t gonna argue; it’s mounted to a Ford F650 and tops out at 200 mph.
Its price is sky-high, but the GRACE E-bike tantalizes with its tech: a 1300 W brushless hub motor, a bank of 70 Li-ion batteries, 1 hour charge, 40 mph top speed, and Eurofighter/F1 parts.
ATT Autotechnik’s BMW 335i convertible may run less ponies than the M3 (356 hp vs. 414 hp), but makes up for it with pavement rending torque: 388 lb-ft vs. the M3′s 300 lb-ft.
The 2010 Lotus Evora lands stateside 1Q 2010, and with it, a pricetag of $73.5k; currently only a 44-dealer tour in the US, the 2+2 boasts 276 hp V6, a 4.9 second 0-60, and 30 mpg.
We could use more pictures, but the specs on the Devonport 160 have us drooling: the 165 meter yacht features 17 VIP rooms, an indoor pool, helipad, drive-in garage, and a nightclub.
Aptly set to Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” (also stop-motion), watch as a Suzuki GSX-R assembles itself; it took 30 hours to film, but the ending is the coolest: the bike ran on first start-up.
It may not be the SI: Swimsuit Edition, but the 2010 Heavy Equipment Calendar is full-on construction porn, with gorgeous HDR images of wheel loaders, dump trucks, and excavators.
Cash for Clunkers may have a new home with James Corbett; his beautifully detailed metallic sculptures are made entirely from leftover car parts–often, ironically, into tiny cars and bikes.
Innocuously named but ridiculously cool, Pantural’s My Cars Showreel is entirely CG; it features a Mustang, Camaro, an AH-64 Apache with action that would do Michael Bay proud.
Awesome news for streetbike aficionados: KTM is bringing all of its bikes to the US, from its 690/990 Duke/Super Duke naked bikes to the range-topping, drool-inducing RC8 R Superbike.
Swap PowerPoint for pedals with the Conference Bike, a seven-ride tricycle; forget about truly escaping from the workplace, however, as only one person can steer and brake.
CR&S’ DUU Concept is a cafe racer with the best of both worlds: powered by an US-made 1.9L X-Wedge V-twin but riding on a European rolling chassis, it’s due out in Europe in 2011.
BMW Mottorrad’s Concept 6 makes a compelling case for a straight-six tourer; the 1.6 L inline 6 is only slightly wider than a 4-cylinder, yet churns out 96 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm.
Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 is four bikes in one; with a new suspension and the same engine used in its 1198 superbike, it offers Sport, Touring, Urban, and Enduro riding modes.
It may have a new 186hp, 998cc radial-valve inline-4, swingarm and chassis, but the 2010 MV Agusta F4 stays true to its superbike roots; it sheds 22 lbs and gains 12 hp over 2009.
The SoundRacer turns any econobox into the ultimate sleeper, sorta: all show and no go, it syncs up with your car’s revs and pipes the sound of a V8 or V10 engine through your speakers.
TAG Heuer and Triumph team up to celebrate Steve McQueen in Le Mans with the Bonneville Heuer; absolutely one-of-a-kind, it’s the Bonneville dressed in Gulf Oil blue and orange livery.
Mavizen’s TTX02 is the world’s first production electric supersport bike, and a geeky one at that: able to hit 130 mph, it runs on Linux and features a web server, USB ports and Wi-Fi.
Svelte and spartan, Porsche’s new Boxster Spyder weighs just 2,811 lbs (176 lbs less than the Spyder); it sports a 3.4 L boxer 6 with 320 hp (0-60 in 4.6s) and a low-slung soft top.
BMW’s M3 GTS is as hardcore as it gets: the AC and rear seats are stripped out for a rollcage, 7-speed Drivelogic gearbox, 19″ Competition rims, and tuned 4.4L V8 good for 450 hp.
Ford’s F-150 SVT Raptor gets a boost over its initial debut with a 6.2L V8 good for 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque; it’ll be available 12/1 along with 5.4L and $100k XT models.
