Calling the Tabbert Paganini RV a mere winnebago just seems wrong; with race-inspired lines, this 28-foot “caravan” includes LED lighting, an upscale kitchen and built-in shower.
If the idea of a race between a Dodge Viper ACR and a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 doesn’t excite you, consider the venue: it’s taking place at Germany’s famous Nurbrugring.
Can-Am’s Spyder Roadster is a road-approved three-wheeled motorcycle. It’s available in the US and Canada through numerous dealers, and sports a 106 hp, 990cc V-twin engine.
While it’s been called a Prius clone, we welcome the upcoming 2010 Honda Insight (a 90% concept is seen above). The biggest news is its relatively low starting price point of $18,500.
Click on the pic above to see spy shots of the upcoming 2009 Ducati Monster 1100; it’s basically a 696 with an 1100CC engine, netting +15HP and +26 lb/ft. of torque. Vroom.
The 2009 Lexus IS has a slightly restyle grilled, L-shaped backup lights and turn signals on the side mirrors. Internally the IS gets VDIM, a revamped stability control system.
The Audi R3 above is just a photochopped Saturn Sky, but we can’t help but drool over news that Audi will replace the TT in 2013 with the R3, a proper mid-engined sports car.
Bugatti’s Veyron Fbg par Hermes is Grand Sport’s more opulent sibling; originally only available in brown, Bugatti has released four new color schemes. Above is “black and garance red.”
Created by design student Da Feng, the GYM Concept Car is plug-in electric car that can be powered by the driver using the bench press and other exercise machines inside.
BMW’s versatile R 1200 GS gets a modest 5% bump to 105 HP over last year along with ergonomic upgrades; this go-anywhere bike has sport, normal, comfort and off-road settings.
The 2009 Civic Coupe is up at Honda.com; the front fascia gets refreshed with a new grille and lower bumper, while the inside gets a USB port that plays music from any flash drive.
This ain’t your little brothers’ tricycle: Lazareth’s Triazuma is a chimera of sorts, borrowing a 180BHP engine from an ’06 Yamaha R1. No anti-lock brakes or traction control, so hang on.
Being green never looked as hot as Pete Bethune’s Earthrace trimaran boat, which runs on biodiesel. It recently circled the globe in 60 days and 23 hours, setting a new world record.
As if the stock Audi R8 wasn’t enough: here’s a GT3 racer version with rear wheel drive and a six-speed sequential tranny. It’ll also get a specially designed front and rear wing.
The Dirtsurfer Freestyle BMX is a hybrid skateboard and bike. Like a bike, it’s more stable at speed; unlike a skateboard, it can handle all sorts of terrain with its 16″ tires.
Limited to only 500 cars, the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider is based on the 8C Competizione. It tops out at 180 mph and is fitted with a fabric top and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes.
We love the refined lines of this Fairlady Z concept by automotive graphics expert Jacek of Iacoski Design. It’s a tasteful blend of the original Nissan 240Z, the current 350Z and recent GT-R.
The X-Bow looks like an amped-up go-cart, but this mini roadster packs a 220hp turbo 2.0 liter from Audi (with up to 300hp). KTM hopes to bring a street legal version to the US soon.
The Soularc Board is a funky marriage of skateboarding and surfing. It’s made possible by the below-deck composite spring, which makes riders feel like they’re carving a wave — on land.
It goes 0-60 in 4.1 seconds, pulls 2Gs and still has an extra seat for a brave (or foolish) passenger: Campagna’s T-Rex Trike is the ultimate man toy, and is available on eBay here.
GM has a slew of official pics for the upcoming 2011 Chevy Cruze, which will replace the Cobalt. The compact car will debut in Europe first, which is ironic since it’ll be made in Ohio.
Temple of VTEC has a good writeup of their first impressions with the new 2009 Honda Fit. It’s no Lightning GT, but a “real” VTEC engine and stiffer body structure mean more driving fun.
Jake Loniak is just a college junior, but he has a bright future ahead with this wearable motorcycle concept. At high speeds, this form-fitting trike angles forward to reduce air resistance.
Rolled out recently at Pebble Beach, Volkswagen’s CC Gold Coast Edition gets a special “tri-coat” of paint with gold, brown and silver tones, 19″ propeller rims and a ground effects package.
The Lunocet Monofin is an underwater version of the Monza Ferrari concept, except it’s real. Designed for (fast) scuba diving, the Monofin hits speeds of up to 8 mph and weighs only 2.5 lbs.
Like a futuristic starfighter, Iman Maghsoudi’s Monza Ferrari concept actually changes shape depending on your speed; the wing-like design creates lift, much like an airplane.
Cadillac continues to make strides in the sheet metal department with its much anticipated 2010 CTS Coupe. You can see it in person at the November LA Auto Show.
Like the Lightning GT, the RONN Scorpion is a sports car with a twist: it’s a hydrogen fuel-injected hybrid paired with an Acura V6. It makes its own hydrogen with water and gets up to 40 mpg.
We like Areaware’s Strida bicycle for what it doesn’t do: it won’t take up a lot of space because it folds away, and it won’t soil your clothes with grease thanks to its clean Kevlar belt.
Even if you’re not a fan of Mercedes or aero kits, it’s hard not to stare longingly at the SL65 AMG Black Series; these photos were snapped at the North American debut of the Ferrari California.
The Extreme Gravity Car by Volvo takes soap-box derby racing to, well, extremes. For one, they flip the rider on their stomach and face them forward; the racer can hit up to 35 mph.
