Get your racing helmets ready: the windshield-less McLaren SLR Stirling Moss will debut in Detroit, with a top speed of 217mph, a 650hp 5.5L V8 and retractable air brake.
The winner of 2008’s Good Design Award, the Vandenbrink GTO is a Dutch creation with gorgeous Italian lines and the soul of an American musclecar; it’s got 750hp under the hood.
With a spaghetti western setup followed by trippy euro beats, Anders Backman’s video of the Gotland Ring in Sweden is pure automotive sex; Lambos and Porsches never looked so good.
Wild and vulgar in all the right ways, the Danish-designed Zenvo ST1 is an angular beast with the chops to back it up: it’s powered by a turbo- and supercharged 7.0L V8 with 1,104hp.
Top Gear pits the electric Tesla Roadster versus its gas guzzling Lotus Elise twin in the video above; it kicks butt with a 0-60 of 3.9s, but is anemic with only 55 miles on a charge.
The 2010 BMW Z4 is now official: we think it’s a modest step up from the last model, with a wider, more aggressive front end, “eyelid” headlights and both hard and soft-top versions.
Sporting a hot blue color scheme above, Ford’s Focus RS is making the leap to North American shores soon; this pocket rocket currently sports a 296bhp engine with 0-60 in 6 seconds.
Powered by a Honda 999cc V-twin with a top speed of 145 mph, this Hawk concept may be sized like a Smart car but is flat out sexy, with three 19″ alloy wheels and a fighter-jet canopy.
Bicyclists need not be excluded from the ski slopes with Ktrak’s Rear Drive Kit; it’ll bolt onto your existing mountain bike frame, adding a ski up front and a track system behind.
It’s settled, Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson is God: to review the Ford Fiesta, he a) races it against a Corvette in a mall and b) uses it to storm a beach with a bunch of Royal Marines.
Engineered by the SpaceShipOne team, the ICON A5 is designed for recreational flying; it’s able to land on water, features wings that fold away and runs on unleaded.
Maserati’s MC Sport Line offers a slew of carbon fiber add-ons (seen above on their GT S). It’s mostly for show, although their suspension kit stiffens springs and lowers the ride by 10mm.
With a Lambo-sourced 5.2L engine, Audi’s R8 V10 is one of their most powerful production cars, and we believe it: the beast drives 552hp and 391 lb-ft torque to the wheels.
If your’e lucky enough to be loaded, Wald’s Black Bison 2003 Bentley Continental GT will push your street cred to blingtastic levels with a new bodykit, exhaust and suspension.
Carbon fiber on motorcycles isn’t new, but Bimota’s DB7 Oronero takes it to the extreme with an entirely carbon frame and swingarm which results in a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio.
Riced out aero-kits aren’t for everyone, but NISMO’s 370Z S-Tune kit works well with its love-it or leave-it notched headlights; also upgraded: the brake pads, suspension and mufflers.
I spy a gatling gun: modeled after the USAF’s A-10 Warthog, custom bike mfr ICON’s Warthog is much sexier; it boasts an 800W audio system, 8″ LCD, rear camera and a sick paint job.
With all the 60s/70s style throwbacks coming out of Detroit lately, Mitsuoka’s Morgan-clone Himiko is a breath of fresh air; its internals are actually based on a Mazda MX-5 Miata.
Saying French prankster RÃ©mi Gaillard has a pair of big ones is a big understatement; watch what he pulls at the end of this real life Mario Kart video: Remi my man, you are a god.
Audi’s S5 Cabriolet is an exercise in sensibility; a step down from the S4 Cabrio’s 340hp V8, it’s powered by a supercharged 3.0 TFSI V6 that peaks at 333hp and 325 lb-ft torque.
It’s stuff like this machine gun-equipped Ripsaw MS1 UGV that makes us fear the inevitable robot rebellion, but for now it’s fun to watch it tear through terrain like tissue paper.
Fisker’s Karma is production ready, as evidenced by these new pictures; the upper grille, lower air intake and exhaust pipe have been modified, but we still think it looks smokin’.
Aprilia’s Mana X concept is a play on their CVT shiftless Mana 850, it shares the same chassis, but it’s been redesigned to appeal towards urban riders with cruiser-like lines.
As ridiculous as it looks, this Walking Bike by Max Knight actually works; it’ll get you around town with kicks to spare, although its bumpy ride is ill advised for hemorrhoid sufferers.
Japan’s Ritmo Sereno takes existing BMW R100 and R80 motorcycles and turns them into custom works of retro beauty; customers can choose from either in-house or sourced parts.
Fresh from the “Hell yeah!” department, Slovak artist Marek Denko’s jet engine powered Mad Max Buggy is actually a 3ds Max rendering that he made for his 10 month old son.
