THE BEST Rides

Shelby Black Hornet

Shelby Black Hornet

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.

Knight XV SUV

Knight XV SUV

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.

Concept: Cadillac VRS

Concept: Cadillac VRS

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.

Custom SEMA Camaros

Custom SEMA Camaros

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.).

Homemade F-35 Jet

Homemade F-35 Jet

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?

Ducati Streetfighter

Ducati Streetfighter

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.

Nike 6.0 Ill Mobile

Nike 6.0 Ill Mobile

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.

A-bike

A-bike

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.

Fuoss 01 Trackcar

Fuoss 01 Trackcar

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.

Nissan 370z

Nissan 370z

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.

Aston Martin One-77

Aston Martin One-77

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.

2009 Superlight R300

2009 Superlight R300

Caterham’s Superlight R300 may have classy retro looks, but this roadster is plenty modern, with a Ford Zetec 4-banger that outputs 175hp, keyless ignition and limited slip differential.

Rolling Sports Bar

Rolling Sports Bar

Killing two (or maybe three) birds with one stone, Tampa Bucs fan Michael Seville has created a 17″ BBQ grille/trailer with a built-in flat-panel, Polk Audio speakers and Alpine amps.

Superformance MKIII-R

Superformance MKIII-R

We’ve always had a soft spot in our hearts for Shelby Cobras: call us smitten with this Superformance MKIII-R; it’s a licensed replica with a Roush 427 V8 that outputs 576 ponies.

Japanese Art Trucks

Japanese Art Trucks

Snapped by Roger Snider, Japanese Art Trucks are wildly customized (and often inhabited) by their owners; if an 18 wheeler and Tokyo’s Ginza ever mated, these rigs would be their progeny.

Pagani Zonda R

Pagani Zonda R

Even more expensive than the Cinque, Pagani’s Zonda R is the current generation’s swan song and limited to 10; it’s optimized for downforce and is powered by a 6.0L AMG V12.

Tesla Sedan

Tesla Sedan

Sure, it looks like a stretched out Nissan Z, but this rendering of the all-electric Tesla 4-door sedan is pure sex: it hits 0-60 in less than 6 seconds and goes 240 miles on a charge.

Video: MB SLR 722 GT

Video: MB SLR 722 GT

There’s nothin like a supercharged MB SLR 722 GT toolin’ around a track to get us all hot and bothered. Now, try watching EIGHT of these 5.5L V8 680 hp beasts at once: 0-60 in 3.3s, kiddos.

MB Formula Zero Racer

MB Formula Zero Racer

50% sailboat and 100% crazy, Mercedes’ Formula Zero Racer concept sports a rigid sail, solar skin and electric motors to combine bobsledding, F1 and yacht racing. Like we said, crazy.

Elfin Type 5 Clubman

Elfin Type 5 Clubman

Using the same 260hp 2.0L turbo four found in the Saturn Sky Redline, Australia’s roofless and doorless Elfin Type 5 Clubman goes 0-60 in about 3.7 seconds and weighs just 1,650 lbs.

Check out this gallery of entrants for the LA Auto Show’s Motor Sports 2025 challenge (we previously featured Mitsubishi’s MMR25); they include concept cars from BMW, Toyota and VW.

LEGO Ferrari F1

LEGO Ferrari F1

It’s one thing to build a LEGO replica, but to make a 1:8 scale Ferrari go-kart is just flat-out awesome. Used to promote LEGO World in The Netherlands, it’s made out of 80,000 bricks.

MINI E

MINI E

Limited to only 500 vehicles in So Cal, NY and NJ, the MINI E is an all-electric with zero emissions; it’ll get 204hp and 162 lb-ft with a range of 150 miles off its Li-Ion batteries.

Self-Balancing Unicycle

Self-Balancing Unicycle

Your friends may laugh at you, but Focus Designs’ Self-Balancing Unicycle is like a Segway with one wheel; it takes about two hours to learn and is light enough to carry around.

Action Mobil Globecruiser

Action Mobil Globecruiser

Forget those wimpy winnebagos: Action Mobil’s Globecruiser literally has MAN stamped on the grille with 3 axles, air suspension in the rear and permanent all wheel drive.

Leaked: 2010 Toyota Prius

Leaked: 2010 Toyota Prius

Though it won’t be officially unveiled until January, Toyota has confirmed the shots above are of the new 2010 Prius; most prominent are the corporate nose and googly eyed headlights.
