THE BEST Rides

Audi R8 V10

Audi R8 V10

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.

Bentley Black Bison

Bentley Black Bison

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.

Bimota DB7 Oronero

Bimota DB7 Oronero

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.

Nismo 370Z S-Tune

Nismo 370Z S-Tune

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.

ICON Warthog ZX-10

ICON Warthog ZX-10

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.

Mitsuoka Himiko Roadster

Mitsuoka Himiko Roadster

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.

Real Life Mario Kart

Real Life Mario Kart

Saying French prankster Rémi 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.

2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet

2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet

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.

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

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 Karma Production Pics

Fisker Karma Production Pics

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 Mana X

Aprilia Mana X

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.

Walking Bike

Walking Bike

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.

Ritmo Sereno Motorcycles

Ritmo Sereno Motorcycles

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.

Mad Max Buggy

Mad Max Buggy

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.

Demo Derby Tilt-Shift

Demo Derby Tilt-Shift

With oversized monster trucks, garishly painted cars and wanton destruction, the video above definitively shows that demolition derbies + tilt-shift = a match made in heaven.

Ford Ranger Max

Ford Ranger Max

It’s only being sold in Asia, but we think Ford needs to bring this Ford Ranger Max to the USA yesterday: the power-dome hood and flared fenders put our stateside version to shame.

Camilo Pardo Ford GT

Camilo Pardo Ford GT

While we’ve never heard of Camilo Pardo, anytime they drop 900 ponies into a Ford GT we’re gonna take notice; screw 0-60 times, this monster goes 0-200 mph in under 19 seconds.

Mazda3 Hatchback

Mazda3 Hatchback

We previewed the 2010 Mazda3 sedan here, but we think the second-gen’s lines (and yes, that ridiculous grin) suit the hatchback better; it’ll premiere on 12/3 at the Bologna Auto Show.

Jaguar XF Coupe

Jaguar XF Coupe

If Jaguar’s upcoming XF Coupe looks anything like these Auto Express renders, we’ll be first in line to snap up one of these 3-Series fighters; it’ll sport a 5.0L V8 that pumps out 500 bhp.

Unimog

Unimog

The Unimog is truly for globe trekkers, with a chassis that can take just about any kind of diesel and permanent all wheel drive; inside, you’ll get corian countertops and teak floors.

C3R Retro Corvette

C3R Retro Corvette

Going retro has been hit-or-miss for recent muscle cars, but this concept C3R Corvette Stingray is undeniably sexy: it sports hideaway head lights and aggressive front fender peaks.

2009 Audi Q5

2009 Audi Q5

Recently making its North American debut at SEMA, the 2009 Audi Q5’s feature list is promising: a 2.0L TFSI with a 7-speed shifter, hatchback-style rear access, and sliding rear seats.

Enertia TTXGP

Enertia TTXGP

Seen at SEMA to promote next year’s clean emission Grand Prix, Brammo’s Enertia is an electric motorcycle with a range of 45 miles, making this ideal for workplace commutes.

Porsche Panamera

Porsche Panamera

Porsche’s much anticipated four-door Panamera sedan has been laid bare for the world to see; it’s a bit odd-looking, but with a 500hp V8 and hybrid on the way, we can deal with odd.

VW Baja Race Touareg

VW Baja Race Touareg

With a double front and 4-link rear suspension, VW’s Baja Race Touareg is an off-road version of its 3.0L V6 TDI, using the same clean diesel tech albeit with a souped-up 5.5L V12.

Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder

Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder

Lamborghini’s Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder shares the same mechanicals as the coupe, albeit with a soft-top that opens in 20 seconds–vital when you’ve got a 560 ponies under the hood.
