2010 V6 Acura TSX

2010 V6 Acura TSX

2010 Ford Taurus SHO

2010 Ford Taurus SHO

Ford revives two brands at once with the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO; it’s a sleeper outside, but gets V8 power with a 365hp 3.5L EcoBoost V6; also: AWD and a beefed-up suspension.

DoW2: Real Life Rhino

DoW2: Real Life Rhino

Whoever is marketing Dawn of War II deserves a raise: THQ takes a 1960s-era British APC, turns it into a Space Marines Rhino, and crushes a few hapless hatchbacks just for kicks.

Corvette Stingray

Corvette Stingray

Two promos in one at the Chicago Auto Show for GM with their Corvette Stingray concept, which will serve as Sideswipe in Transformers 2; too bad it won’t ever see production.

Most aero-kits do everything but make cars more aerodynamic, but Mugen’s Zero-Lift bodykit for the 2010 Honda Insight is a rarity: it claims to create zero lift and improve handling.

Waldmeister Bikes

Waldmeister Bikes

Wood is good, or at least that’s what Waldmeister Bikes wants you to believe; beyond the swoopy profile, each bicycle frame is made with PEFC-certified woods from a German forest.

We’ve previously featured Chicara Nagata’s amazing hand-crafted art bikes, but this 6 minute short film by Current sheds more light on his past, his methods and his future plans.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage

Aston Martin V12 Vantage

The V8 gets the boot with Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage, whose 6.0L engine drives 510hp and 420 lb-ft of torque to a carbon fiber driveshaft and 6-speed box; ouch: 0-60 in 4.1s.

Project Splitwheel

Project Splitwheel

Backed by Caterham (of Superlight R300 fame), Project Splitwheel (PSW) aims to create a viable perfomance car; the twist? It’ll be built based on your input at the PSW site. Thanks, Janne!

Hulme CanAm

Hulme CanAm

New Zealand pitches its hat into the racing ring with the Hulme CanAm, an all-carbon fiber two-seater with a Corvette Z06 heart; it’ll go 0-62 in less than three and tops out at 198 mph.

SpaceShipOne Cockpit

SpaceShipOne Cockpit

This in-flight photo of SpaceShipOne’s cockpit is not only breathtaking (check out all those portholes!) but is a testament to efficient engineering with an off-the-shelf GPS unit and clock.

Blastolene Hemi Trike

Blastolene Hemi Trike

Dropping a Hemi in just about anything lends a certain amount of street cred, but this supercharged Blastolene Trike could kill with looks alone; all we can say is: DO WANT.

Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Harley-Davidson’s Iron 883 is a cheaper, smaller displacement version of the Nightster 1200 but just as hot with a solo saddle, foldaway license plate and slammed suspension.
