Making a Chocolate Motorcycle

Making a Chocolate Motorcycle

Expert pastry chef Amaury Guichon shows off the creation of an absolutely amazing work of candy art. We watched in awe as he sculpted and airbrushed chocolate to build his edible motorcycle sculpture, complete with a detailed engine, a curly coil spring, intricate wheel spokes, and an amazing sugar glass headlight.

Power Wheels Jeep Gets Snow Tracks

Power Wheels Jeep Gets Snow Tracks

Grind Hard Plumbing Co. continues to upgrade and retrofit their insane 100hp Power Wheels Jeep. For extra winter fun, they swapped out its tires and replaced them with Camso UTV tracks that can tear through snow like it’s nothing. Though they don’t seem to be the most durable things.

The Hellcat Buggy

The Hellcat Buggy

If you’re going to drive a high horsepower muscle car like a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, you usually want to have some nice fat tires to maximize grip. So the very idea of a Hellcat riding on horse-and-buggy wheels seems ludicrous. But this is the internet – and where there’s a will, there’s a way, as WhistlinDiesel demonstrates.

Jet-powered Snowboard 2.0

Jet-powered Snowboard 2.0

Now that Hacksmith Industries is done playing around with their jet-powered canoe, they’re ready for something better suited to winter sports. Rather than start from scratch, they swiped one of the jet engines from the boat and attached it to the rear end of a snowboard. If the idea seems familiar, it’s because it’s a remake.

Mudd-Ox Fort Mac

Mudd-Ox Fort Mac

This rugged amphibious vehicle uses four hydraulic wheel motors to move its tracks just like a military tank. It can crawl over just about any terrain, through swamps and mud, and is is equipped with heavy duty componentry for longevity. It can also be equipped with a cockpit shell and even an air-conditioned interior.

The Mood Ring Car

The Mood Ring Car

DipYouCar is back with another amazing automotive paint job. This time, they covered an Audi with a specialty pigment that packs thermotropic liquid crystals. Like a mood ring, it changes colors with temperature differences. We love how they can play with such crazy ideas thanks to the peelable base coat they spray on first.

This 1458-piece LEGO Creator set lets you build a classic Porsche 911 from the late 1970s.

2022 Tesla Model S

2022 Tesla Model S

Tesla’s latest Model S hasn’t changed much outside, but its interior has a sleek new look, premium materials, and a steering wheel out of a video game. The Long Range model can go 412 mi, while the Plaid and Plaid+ offer insane specs: 1020 hp and 1100 hp, both doing 0-to-60 in under 2 sec. The Plaid+ has a crazy 520 mi range.

Jaguar Classic C-type Continuation

Jaguar Classic C-type Continuation

To celebrate 70 years of the C-type, Jaguar Classic will handcraft a limited number of new cars from the original specs. Based on the 1953 Le Mans-winning roadster, it has a 3.4L inline-six with triple Weber carbs and disc brakes. The cars can be fitted with an FIA-approved harness for driving in historic racing, track days, and closed-road use.

Transforming LEGO Technic Car

Transforming LEGO Technic Car

Motorized LEGO cars usually drive in a straight line, or maybe can turn left and right. But Konstrakt Abstrakt designed this unusual Technic vehicle that can reconfigure its four motors and wheels to maneuver into tight parking spaces. You can find the full parts list on Rebrickable.

Driven: 2020 Nissan 370Z Nismo

Driven: 2020 Nissan 370Z Nismo

Nissan is just about to release an new 7th-generation Z, so we figured we’d take its predecessor, the 370Z, for one final ride. Tricked out in the Nismo trim, this 350hp, V6-powered 2-seater is still a blast to drive, loaded with performance upgrades, and as attention-grabbing as ever with its sweet red accents.

Singer ACS Porsche 911

Singer ACS Porsche 911

This awesome Porsche 911 was built by Singer for its All-terrain Competition Study. Working with rally expert Richard Tuthill they created the car based on a 1990 Type 964, strengthened its core, upgraded its suspension, brakes, tires, engine, and gearbox to survive punishing off-road events like the Baja 1000 and Dakar Rally.

The Lady and the Dale (Trailer)

The Lady and the Dale (Trailer)

In the 1970s, Liz Carmichael tried to go up against the big-three automakers with her own car company. The three-wheeled, two-seater Dale was marketed as something revolutionary, but as HBO’s documentary explores, Liz was a master of smoke and mirrors, and eventually went down in a blaze of controversy. Drops 1.31.21.

Driven: 2021 Ram 1500 TRX

We were fortunate to spend several days dashing through the snow in Ram’s 702 horsepower sleigh. This beast of a truck does everything that the already great Ram 1500 does, just faster and with more brawn. It’s basically a muscle car with an off-road suspension – and a rich kids’ plaything like nothing else.

Galactic Black Car

Galactic Black Car

We recently took a tour of a room painted in the world’s blackest paint. DipYourCar applied the same Musou Black paint to a car. The paint absorbs 99.4% of visible light, resulting in a strikingly dark background for a shimmering starfield effect they created with by spraying it with thinner and their HyperShift pearl coat.

(Thanks Algirdas!)

Tiny Cybertruck

Tiny Cybertruck

It seems as if the primitive design of Tesla’s Cybertruck makes it fairly easy to replicate, so this one resourceful dad decided to build his kid a Cybertruck body for his electric go kart. Just for fun, he let the kid use it to tow his Mercedes-Benz R-Class MPV. It also does a mean J-turn.

Sci-fi Car Engine Badges

Sci-fi Car Engine Badges

You could bring your car to a professional tuning shop to give its engine more power, or you could upgrade it with a Dilithium warp drive, an FTL jump unit, or a 1.21 gigawatt Flux Capacitor.
