Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson is looking a bit like Tim Allen; above, he hooks a 6.2L V8 Corvette engine up to a blender and makes a “man smoothie” with bone-in beef and tabasco.
The Streetfighter’s burlier (and sexier) sibling, the Ducati 1198/1198 S has a 1198.4 cc engine that pumps out 170bhp and 97lb/ft of torque; it’ll also get superbike-level traction control.
It doesn’t get much better than this for car enthusiasts: watch this drag race between a Chevy ZR1, Ferrari 599, Nissan GT-R and a Porsche GT2. Hint: the Axis powers lose.
The GT4 Supersport is an amped-up version of Lotus Sport’s 2-Eleven club racer, with a full roll cage, sequential gearbox and 270 hp/181 lb-ft of torque; only ten will be built initially in 2009.
Tesla competitor Fisker is getting set to produce the Karma, a plug-in hybrid sedan which will go 0-60 in 5.8s and an all-electric range of 50 miles; it should be available in late 2009.
With Land Rover looks, Recaro bucket seats and a supercharged 4.2L 500HP Jag V8, Bowler Racing’s Nemesis is a crazy expensive off-road racer which will be limited to 50 a year.
Forget coach class: the SkyCar is a bio-fueled flying car that will go from London to Timbuktu in January 2009. Above is the next gen sport model, which will be available in 2010.
It won’t hit dealerships until at least 2010, but this video for BMW’s S1000RR superbike has us dreaming of knee-sliding laps around the track on its drool-inducing 1000cc engine.
Honeycombed leather and chrome trim: no, it’s not a Maybach, but Mercedes-Benz’s Trust Edition Semi is designed to showcase the third-gen Actros platform and cause extreme trucker envy.
If the giant typographic grille isn’t obvious enough, Ford’s F-150 SVT Raptor means business: the off-road package sports a wider track, softer suspension and internal bypass shocks.
Nearly killed in a motorcycle accident at age 16, Chicara Nagata creates million-dollar bikes in honor of those who have died; everything except the drivetrain is built by Nagata.
Ferrari’s Scuderia Spider 16M has a bit of an identity crisis, as it’s designed for the track but is a drop top with a built-in iPod Touch in its center console; it’s limited to a run of 499.
Mow down woodland creatures and tear up the slopes with this Tracked Hummer: converted into a snowmobile/ATV for SEMA, it’s even got avalanche-inducing speakers in the trunk.
BMW’s LO Rider concept is an experiment in Harley-style customization, with bolt-on accessories including exhausts, seats and headlamps available to choose in the showroom.
Coming straight from Carroll Shelby himself, Restoration Hardware is auctioning off Shelby’s ’68 “Black Hornet” on 12/2; the proceeds will go to kids who need heart and kidney transplants.
Luxury carpeting, boardroom seating and a PS3: believe it or not, we’re desribing the Knight XV, a fully armored, badass man-tastic SUV with 40″ tires and a bio-fuel powered 6.8L V10.
22 inch shoes, airport strut arms and a man-eating grille up front: this Cadillac VRS Sport Rod has a big DO WANT stamped on it. It’s powered by a 6.0L 400hp engine in a fiberglass body.
Chevy is bringing a quartet of custom Camaros to SEMA; these rides range from nostalgic (the 60s inspired LS7) to the environmentally friendly (the E85 sipping Dale Earnhardt Jr.).
Tired of waiting for the real-life JSF, Dutchman Arthur van Poppel has created his own drivable mini F-35; the plane is awesome, but Arthur, seriously… a John Denver soundtrack?
Hell for Leather has leaked a slew of 2010 Ducati Streetfighter and Streetfighter S photos; they both raise the style bar for naked bikes, with both sharing a 155hp 1099cc V-twin.
There are RVs and then there’s the Nike 6.0 ill Mobile Truck; this skate ramp on wheels comes with a BBQ and camper shell; it’s also armor plated and based off an Adam Haynes design.
With tiny wheels and an even tinier seat, we’re not 100% convinced that A-bike is for us, but its urban riders swear by it: it folds up in only 10 seconds and weighs about 13 pounds.
Don’t get any ideas about going on a roadtrip with the Fuoss 01; it tops out at 90 mph, but with a low center of gravity and 660 lb curb weight, it’s plenty of fun to fling around the track.
Official pics of the 2009 Nissan 370z are out; we’re hard pressed to see any changes, but we’ve always dug the original 350z. It’s powered by a 3.7L engine, the same one in the Infiniti G37.
After a three year hiatus, Red Bull Rampage is back, and we found the freeride mountain biking footage above as exhilirating as ever. It’s held at Zion National Park in Utah.
Although already sold out, we’re still drooling over these leaked shots of Aston Martin’s One-77 supercar; sweeping air extractors and a huge grille mean this baby’s ready to shred.
