Jet-Powered Tesla Model S

Jet-Powered Tesla Model S

One of the main reasons people buy a Tesla is that it runs on electric power. So the idea of outfitting a Model S with jet engines seems pretty counterintuitive. Warped Perception not only equipped his car with a trio of jet engines, he went the extra mile by adding a console with aircraft throttle controls inside the cabin.

Everyone Gets a Car

Mr. Beast teamed up with art collective MSCHF for a sweepstakes where everyone who enters wins a Lamborghini. The catch? Most entrants won’t win one of the used Aventadors or Gallardos they’re giving away, and will end up with a die-cast Lambo, a 1/24-scale RC Lambo, or a kid-size Lambo. Ends 1.1.2022. Rules here.

Lexus ROV Concept

Lexus ROV Concept

While it’s unlikely to be more than a showpiece, we appreciate Lexus’ chutzpah with the reveal of their ROV (Recreational Off-highway Vehicle) Concept. The upscale 2-seater differentiates itself from other UTVs by running on clean-burning hydrogen that propels a custom 1-liter direct-injected engine.

Electric Scooter Auto Gate

Electric Scooter Auto Gate

Handy Geng was tired of getting off of his scooter to open the gates to his workshop, so he decided to motorize one of them. Rather than use an off-the-shelf motor, he rigged up a mount and attached his scooter to do the work. Now he needs to buy a second scooter to ride through the gate. English subtitles available.

Carving a Ferrari SF90 Spider

Carving a Ferrari SF90 Spider

Woodworking Art continues to fill out their garage with awesome handmade wooden vehicles. Their latest build is a miniature version of the Ferrari SF90 Spider. It has lots of wonderful details, like a retractable hardtop roof and working suspension and steering. Its seats even slide back and forth, and we love the red brake calipers.

Tesla Cyberquad ATV for Kids

Tesla Cyberquad ATV for Kids

Tesla teamed up with Radio Flyer to create a pint-size version of the electric ATV shown alongside the Cybertruck. This kid-friendly Cyberquad has a top speed of 10 mph, 15 miles of range, and rides on a steel frame with off-road pneumatic tires and disc brakes.

Tesla Model S Plaid with a Minigun

Tesla Model S Plaid with a Minigun

When it comes to car acceleration, you can’t get much quicker than a Tesla Model S Plaid. FullMag equipped a Model S Plaid with a working M134 Minigun that just might be enough to convince slower cars to get out of the left lane. A second video shows a test firing with blanks and a night vision drive. (Thanks, Chris!)

If you can get past the massive grille, the Concept XM looks pretty damned awesome on paper. This plug-in hybrid crossover combines a V8 with electric motors, producing 750 hp and 737 lb-ft. of torque. Its angular, origami design language offers a glimpse into the future of BMW styling. A production version is due by late 2022.

Making an Unrideable Bicycle

Making an Unrideable Bicycle

A bicycle is a fairly simple vehicle, but the physics involved in keeping it from falling over are more complex than you might think. But as Veritasium demonstrates, get one critical mechanism wrong, and you end up with a bike that’s nearly impossible to keep upright – especially when turning.

Win a 2021 Chevy Corvette C8 Z51 Convertible

This Red Mist Metallic 2021 Stingray Convertible Z51 is a beauty.

Jetson ONE Forest Flight

Jetson ONE Forest Flight

The Jetson ONE is a single-seat flying machine that works like a giant quadrotor drone. Previously, we got a look at a test flight in an open field, now let’s go for a more scenic flight along a forest trail. It’s not as quick as the speeder bikes in Return of the Jedi, but it’s the closest you can get in real life.

We headed to Moab, Utah, to test out the new Jeep Grand Cherokee. The 2022 model is longer, more spacious, and has a redesigned exterior and interior with a more upscale and premium look. Improvements to the suspension, chassis, and visibility make it even better off-road while still comfortable for everyday drives.

Driven: 2021 Ford Bronco Wildtrak

Driven: 2021 Ford Bronco Wildtrak

Like many 4×4 fans, we’ve been dying to get behind the wheel of the new Ford Bronco. Well, we finally got our wish times two with a chance to drive both the 2-door and 4-door versions in the same week.
