It’s not quite official, but these shots of the 2010 Toyota 4Runner tell all: the profile is definitely more rugged and squared-off, but we’re smarting over the loss of the V8 for a 268 hp V6.
Lamborghini’s angular Reventon supercar goes topless with the Roadster: it sports carbon fiber body panels, a 650 hp 6.5L V12, a 0-60 of 3.4 seconds and is limited to 20 units.
It’s a pity that Pontiac’s gone, because Holden’s Special Vehicles division has just revealed its drool-inducing E Series 2 line; at the top is the HSV GTS with a 435 hp LS3 V8.
With a 3 mph top speed, Charley Wheelock’s Twin Barrels Burning is the slowest soap box racer ever; still, we love the design, which uses wine barrels and a ’57 Ford F100 drop axle.
The first bespoke McLaren since the F1, the MP4-12C is built around a single 176 lb. carbon fiber tub; it also packs a twin-turbo, midship 3.8L V8 with 600 hp and 433 lb-ft torque.
Head turning and neck snapping are guaranteed with Brabus’ SV12 R; built on a 2010 MB S-Class, it sports a Biturbo 6.3L V12 with 750 hp and 995 lb-ft of torque, good for a 0-62 of 4s.
Not quite official but with gorgeous official-ish pics, the 2010 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is a retro-styled, gullwing beaut with a 6.3L V8 that’ll send it 0-60 in 3.7s; it’ll go on sale in 2011.
Honda’s new 2010 Shadow Phantom is a “bobber”-styled cruiser with a liquid-cooled 745cc V-twin, low 25.7″ seat height and blacked out engine and rims with silver accents.
Sure, it’s staged, but this video of four-time stunt-riding World Champion Chris Pfeiffer taking on the BMW HQ in Munich on an F800R is a treat for freestyle motorcycle stunt fans.
Based on the 134 hp Elise S, the Elise Club Racer is lightweight track car with grippy Yokohama AD07 LTS tires and aluminum wheels; it’ll come in four classic 1960s Lotus colors.
We’ve seen creative tuning, but Heffner Performance takes the cake for shock value: they’ve boosted a Lamborghini Murcielago’s 570 hp V12 to an asphalt-melting 1,100 hp.
Largely unchanged from the 200EX concept, the 2010 Rolls Royce Ghost is official: it tops out with a 6.6L turbo V12 with 563 bhp and 575 lb ft of torque, good for a 0-60 of 4.7s.
Ken Block racing Rob Dyrdek is special enough, but Gymkhana 2.1 is a must-watch with a Subaru WRX STI taking on a replica miniature shifter car; even better: synchronized drifting.
Part motorcycle shop, part bike-porn gallery, Wrenchmonkees is a Danish outfit that builds custom cafe racers; they not only sell the bikes but the parts, letting you build your own.
Easily one of the most beautifully tuned Ferraris, Novitec Rosso’s 599 GTB gets a 40 hp bump, pushing its 6.0L V12 to 660 hp; also: a retuned ECU, and quad-pipe sport exhaust.
It’s the largest Porsche ever, but still plenty fast: crafted by Porsche Design, the RFF135 is a 135 ft. catamaran that can hit 35 knots thanks to 4,600 hp twin V16 turbodiesels.

We wouldn’t mind BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept in our garage; a 3-cylinder turbodiesel and two electric motors churn out 356 hp / 590 lb-ft of torque while getting 62.6 mpg.
