Most aero-kits do everything but make cars more aerodynamic, but Mugen’s Zero-Lift bodykit for the 2010 Honda Insight is a rarity: it claims to create zero lift and improve handling.
Wood is good, or at least that’s what Waldmeister Bikes wants you to believe; beyond the swoopy profile, each bicycle frame is made with PEFC-certified woods from a German forest.
This Antares Bulldozer Concept by Mike Turner has us wishing our Tonka trucks were half as cool; it features electroactive polymer wheels which can change shape and size.
It couldn’t have gone off better if it were planned: this clip from the Championship Off Road Racing event shows Rick Huseman doing a double front flip in his Fabtech Pro 4 truck.

With 1,000 hp, 800 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 of 2.5s, SSC aims to make the Ultimate Aero EV the fastest electric vehicle in the world; it’ll go 150-200 miles on a charge. Thanks, Larry!

Harley-Davidson’s Iron 883 is a cheaper, smaller displacement version of the Nightster 1200 but just as hot with a solo saddle, foldaway license plate and slammed suspension.
