Made for international GT3 racing, Porsche’s 911 GT3 R replaces the Cup S in every way; it’s faster (+30 bhp with a 480 hp 4.0L flat-six) and easier to drive (ABS, traction control, throttle-blip).

The Frictionator Jet Truck

The Frictionator Jet Truck

The Frictionator claims it’s the only street legal jet truck in the world, and with a 7,000 hp GE J85 jet engine, we ain’t gonna argue; it’s mounted to a Ford F650 and tops out at 200 mph.

GRACE E-bike

GRACE E-bike

Stop Motion: Suzuki GSX-R

Stop Motion: Suzuki GSX-R

Aptly set to Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” (also stop-motion), watch as a Suzuki GSX-R assembles itself; it took 30 hours to film, but the ending is the coolest: the bike ran on first start-up.

Ducati Multistrada 1200

2010 MV Agusta F4

2010 MV Agusta F4

It may have a new 186hp, 998cc radial-valve inline-4, swingarm and chassis, but the 2010 MV Agusta F4 stays true to its superbike roots; it sheds 22 lbs and gains 12 hp over 2009.
