Vespas have never had much sex appeal, but the Italian gas sipper is releasing its most powerful model ever: the GTS 300 Super tops out at 80 mph while getting 70 miles per gallon.
We’ve seen several folding bicycles, but the Bergmonch is the first to fold into a functional backpack; at only 9.5 kilograms, it can be lugged around like a conventional bag.
Similar to the Confederate Fighter, Victory Motorcycle’s CORE concept bike sits on a swoopy cast aluminum frame to keep weight down; even the 1731cc V-Twin is left exposed.
Although long passed, “The King of Cool” aka Steve McQueen’s legacy lives on; his estate has authorized this Metisse Desert Racer replica, used in the POW-classic The Great Escape.
With a vibration dampening suspension, semi-slick tires and a double-tube aluminum frame, SwissBike’s TX Commuter is great for city slickers; it folds up to 36″x28″x12″ in under 30 seconds.
The Hurst Dodge Viper comes with few performance mods, but we dig the black chrome polished wheels, grippy Katzkin leather-wrapped seats and gorgeous matte gold paint job.
Racer X Design’s BMW RZ-M6 is the way the 6-series should have been; it borrows heavily from American musclecars, but we ain’t complaining: this baby’s body panels are smokin’.
Although a little late to the Chopper party, the Honda Fury is worth a look with a 1300cc liquid-cooled V-Twin, tucked-in radiator, hidden rear monoshock and unusual use of a shaft drive.
Subaru’s Legacy has never inspired much pulse pounding in terms of looks, but their latest concept is more aggressive–in a bulgy, shiny way; it’ll be powered by a 3.6L V6 and AWD.
We’ve never been fans Cadillac’s boxy, DTS-style headlights, but we’ll be seeing them a whole lot more: above is the new Presidential Limo, to be christened at the Jan. 20 Inauguration.
Now that we’ve already seen the Karma, Fisker’s folding hardtop Karma S should come as no surprise; still, as the world’s first plug-in hardtop convertible it’s both sexy and green.
We have a feeling if Chrysler delivered more cars like its 200C EV concept, they’d be in better financial straits; it’ll be powered by an extended range ENVI powertrain or a Phoenix V6.
The Scuderia Ferrari F60 is an update on the traditional F1 racer, with a bigger front wing and smaller rear aerofoil; it’ll also have slick tires and a Kinetic Energy Recovery System.
While it looks a bit too Corolla-ish for our tastes, Lexus’ HS 250h targets Prius lookie-loos with upscale tastes; it’ll be powered by a 2.4L four cylinder with 187 hp and a CVT transmission.
Larger than the A6, details are scant on Audi’s Sportback; what we do know is that this lithe four door coupe concept is the basis for a 2010 production model that’ll be called the A7.
Its brochure pics have already been leaked, but the 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class has been officially revealed: it sports a more masculine fascia along with better fuel economy.
It’s usually no fun being green, but VW’s sporty Bluesport concept does away with such notions; its 2.0L turbodiesel not only gets 180hp and 260 lb-ft of torque but 57 mpg in Eco mode.
We’d be all over Cadillac’s Converj concept even without its electric motor; this swoopy 2+2 goes 40 miles on a charge but also gets a backup flex-fuel motor good for hundreds of miles.
Cloning is apparently the secret to German efficiency, or so goes the VW Golf x Matrix commercial above; it’s supposedly so violent that UK TV viewers can’t watch it before 9 pm.
Designed to go toe-to-toe with M5s and RS6s, the 2010 Jaguar XFR not only looks sweet with a new body kit, but gets a supercharged 5.0L V8 with 510 bhp and 460 lb-ft. of torque.
The 2010 Chevy Camaro goes from musclecar to supercar with Hennessey’s HPE700; they drop in a Corvette’s supercharged LS9 V8 to crank out 705hp and 717 lb-ft. torque.
Nissan’s long-awaited uber-GT-R is here: the Spec V is a street-legal vehicle with carbon fiber weight-saving mods, Recaro buckets and a high gear boost controller for more torque.
While we’ve previously featured Kirk Hawkin’s Icon A5, Wired has an short but sweet video interview up with some great panning and in-flight shots; note: 15 second ad pre-roll.
Designed by six industrial design students at FH Joanneum University, these KTM Concept Vehicles posit everything from hydrofoil boats to a turbine-propelled flight vehicle.
Denim brand G-STAR and Cannondale’s limited edition RAW Cannondale mixes retro/military style with a hand-crafted aluminum frame and Shimano shifters. Thanks, Arjan!
Official pics of the facelifted Bentley Continental GTC and GTC Speed: it’ll get a more upright grille and restyled lower fascia, while the W12 gets bumped to 600 HP, good for 200 mph.
