Vandenbrink GTO

Vandenbrink GTO

The winner of 2008’s Good Design Award, the Vandenbrink GTO is a Dutch creation with gorgeous Italian lines and the soul of an American musclecar; it’s got 750hp under the hood.

Video: Gotland Ring

Video: Gotland Ring

With a spaghetti western setup followed by trippy euro beats, Anders Backman’s video of the Gotland Ring in Sweden is pure automotive sex; Lambos and Porsches never looked so good.

Zenvo ST1

Zenvo ST1

Wild and vulgar in all the right ways, the Danish-designed Zenvo ST1 is an angular beast with the chops to back it up: it’s powered by a turbo- and supercharged 7.0L V8 with 1,104hp.

2010 BMW Z4

2010 BMW Z4

The 2010 BMW Z4 is now official: we think it’s a modest step up from the last model, with a wider, more aggressive front end, “eyelid” headlights and both hard and soft-top versions.

Ford Focus RS

Ford Focus RS

Sporting a hot blue color scheme above, Ford’s Focus RS is making the leap to North American shores soon; this pocket rocket currently sports a 296bhp engine with 0-60 in 6 seconds.

Concept: Hawk

Concept: Hawk

Powered by a Honda 999cc V-twin with a top speed of 145 mph, this Hawk concept may be sized like a Smart car but is flat out sexy, with three 19″ alloy wheels and a fighter-jet canopy.

Ktrak Rear Drive Kit

Ktrak Rear Drive Kit

Bicyclists need not be excluded from the ski slopes with Ktrak’s Rear Drive Kit; it’ll bolt onto your existing mountain bike frame, adding a ski up front and a track system behind.

ICON A5 Floatplane

ICON A5 Floatplane

Engineered by the SpaceShipOne team, the ICON A5 is designed for recreational flying; it’s able to land on water, features wings that fold away and runs on unleaded.

Maserati MC Sport Line

Maserati MC Sport Line

Maserati’s MC Sport Line offers a slew of carbon fiber add-ons (seen above on their GT S). It’s mostly for show, although their suspension kit stiffens springs and lowers the ride by 10mm.

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.
