THE BEST Rides

Wearable Motorcycle

Wearable Motorcycle

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.

VW CC Gold Coast

VW CC Gold Coast

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.

Lunocet Monofin

Lunocet Monofin

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.

Concept: Monza Ferrari

Concept: Monza Ferrari

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.

2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe

2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe

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.

RONN Scorpion

RONN Scorpion

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.

Strida Folding Bike

Strida Folding Bike

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.

MB SL65 AMG Black Series

MB SL65 AMG Black Series

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.

Volvo Extreme Gravity Car

Volvo Extreme Gravity Car

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.

Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT

Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT

Depreciation is a big issue for most used vehicles, but probably not for this Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT Coupe. If your beater can do 0-60 in 3 seconds, give us a call and we’ll deal.

Lotus Concept Ice Vehicle

Lotus Concept Ice Vehicle

Biofueled engines? Check. Ice penetrating radar? Check. Propellers? Lotus’ Concept Ice Vehicle is an Antarctic explorers’ dream; it scouts ahead for heavier support vehicles.

Ferrari FXX Evoluzione

Ferrari FXX Evoluzione

It’s the ultimate test-drive: Ferrari’s FXX program has chosen only three worthy (and stinkin’ rich) drivers to try out their 860hp V12 Evoluziones. There’s one in Europe and two in Hong Kong.

Book: Cosmic Motors

Book: Cosmic Motors

COSMIC MOTORS is a fantastic, albeit fictional look at spaceships and their totally smokin’ pilots. It’s written by Daniel Simon, who in real life has worked for Bugatti and Lamborghini.

2009 Audi RS6

2009 Audi RS6

For 2009, Audi’s RS6 sports sedan gets a twin-turbo V10 with 580 HP and 479 lb-ft, launching this all-wheel drive monster from 0-100 kph in 4.5 seconds. Available in mid-October.

BMW Z X-6 Concept

BMW Z X-6 Concept

Like something out of Minority Report, this two-seater BMW concept by Italian design students sports suicide doors, zero emissions and a glass greenhouse. Tom Cruise not included.

2009 Ferrari California

2009 Ferrari California

Dubbed the “Baby Ferrari”, the California is a hardtop convertible with a 4.3L flat V8 that puts out 454 hp. Appropriately enough, it was recently spotted in San Francisco’s North Beach.

Goldmember Motorcycle

Goldmember Motorcycle

Goldammer specializes in custom motorcycles, but nothing beats the 960cc, liquid-cooled, supercharger and nitrous powered Goldmember built by owner Roger Goldammer.

Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR

Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR

The 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR is a rip-snorting muscle car that you can’t help but love. Not for Sunday drivers: a massive rear wing, scalding side pipes, and an 8.4 liter V10.

Leaked: 2009 Acura TL

Leaked: 2009 Acura TL

Above are freshly leaked photos of the 2009 Acura TL which were supposed to debut next week. We’re still having a hard time with the beak, but we dig the sculpted interior.

Aston Martin One-77

Aston Martin One-77

Above is a teaser for the Aston Martin One-77: a car so amazing they had to spell out the first number. A carbon-fiber chassis and aluminum body hide a 7.0L V12 that goes 0-60 in 3.5s.

Daytona Coupe Replica

Daytona Coupe Replica

While original Shelby Daytona Coupes are rare, Shelby is producing aluminum body replicas with an updated suspension system (the same used by the Superformance Coupe, above.)

2009 Infiniti G37 Sedan

2009 Infiniti G37 Sedan

About time: Infiniti’s 2009 G sedan is following the lead of the G37 coupe, replacing the 3.5L with a 3.7L that pumps out 328 hp. Also on the way are a convertible and AWD version of the coupe.

Volkswagen Golf VI

Volkswagen Golf VI

Above: leaked pics of the Volkswagen Golf VI, due to be officially announced Wednesday. The US won’t be getting this version until late next year; it will likely be badged as our next-gen Rabbit.

Pagani Zonda Cinque

Pagani Zonda Cinque

Only five exist in the world, so we’re talking serious street cred with the Pagani Zonda Cinque. There’s no official top speed on this monster, but it sports a 7.3L V12 and 100ms paddle shifting.

Honda OSM Concept

Honda OSM Concept

Honda’s OSM (Open Study Model) concept debuted at the British International Motor Show recently. It’s not only a two-seater but a low emission vehicle. Could this be the next S2000?

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

Holy effing mother. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is an open top with a blistering top speed of 217 mph. The 16.4 stands for 16 cylinder four-wheel drive, which means this baby can haul.
