THE BEST Vehicles

Car Horsepower Comparison

Car Horsepower Comparison

While most cars have less than 300 hp, there are some sports cars that can hit 1000 hp or more. In this collab between Reigarw Comparisons and MetaBallStudios, they look at the power produced by everything from a Toyota Corolla to the Thrust SSC rocket car. They also compared cars to airplanes, tanks, and rockets.

Making a Wood Monowheel

Making a Wood Monowheel

Over the years, The Q has made some unique vehicles, from a walking bicycle to a cardboard F1 car. This time out, he set out to build one of those hamster wheel-inspired monowheels, primarily out of wood. We assume the long beams sticking in front of the pedal-powered wheel help act as a counterbalance.

Screw Tank Boat Upgrade

Screw Tank Boat Upgrade

Not too long ago, Colin Furze built himself an incredibly rad, incredibly capable homebrew screw tank. But one thing that it couldn’t do that some military-grade screw tanks can do is float on water. So he’s back to make some mods to improve the balance and buoyancy of his ride, in an attempt to make it seaworthy.

Fictional Land Vehicle Comparison

Fictional Land Vehicle Comparison

Thanks to MetaBallStudios, we know how big starships and robots are relative to one another. Now, we can see how earthbound vehicles stack up in this comparison video, which looks at the sizes of everything from Ant-Man’s microscopic van to the wheeled city of London in Mortal Engines. We had no idea that an AT-AT was bigger than Gundam.

Jet-powered Landspeeder

Jet-powered Landspeeder

Previously, inventor Colin Furze teamed up with eBay UK to sponsor a gigantic AT-ACT playhouse and a full-size TIE Silencer ship. For his third Star Wars build, he’s created an awesome replica of Luke Skywalker’s X-34 landspeeder from A New Hope. While it doesn’t hover, it does drive, and is powered by jets. Build video here.

Oscar Mayer Wienerfleet

Oscar Mayer Wienerfleet

To get the word out about their new artificial preservative-free hot dog recipe, Oscar Mayer expanded its wiener-shaped vehicle fleet. The WienerCycle is a three-wheel moped with a hot dog warmer sidecar, and the WienerDrone can deliver hot dogs via the air.

China’s Elevated Tram

China’s Elevated Tram

Despite being named the Transit Elevated Bus (TEB), this public transportation vehicle is actually a tram because it only goes over tracks on the road. It’s just that its passenger compartment is raised to let cars pass beneath it. A TEB car can carry up to 300 people.

Combat Vehicles of the US Military

Combat Vehicles of the US Military

Pop Chart Lab’s newest print contains an illustration of every (known) United States military combat vehicle that’s currently in service. The 24″x 36″ chart groups the 180 vehicles into several classes, sub-classes and branch.

Hovertrax Vehicle

Hovertrax Vehicle

We initially thought of their SoloWheel as the world’s smallest Segway, but Inventist’s skateboard size Hovertrax might take the title. It weighs just 9lbs and can travel up to 4 miles at a speed up to 6mph on a one hour charge.

The Future of Tires

The Future of Tires

Hankook Tire held a competition challenging designers to look at tires from a whole new angle. Ben Zavala’s innovative Tiltread design won, but any of these finalists could change the tire paradigm.

The 50mph Baby Stroller

The 50mph Baby Stroller

Mad vehicle hacker Colin Furze’s latest build is a baby stroller that can whip junior along at unsafe speeds, thanks to its 10 horsepower, 125cc engine. He’s aiming for a record 50mph top speed.

Michelin Straddle Concept

Michelin Straddle Concept

Attila Tari and hypo-Design’s entry in the Michelin Challenge Design, the Straddle is an electric version of a horse, meant to bring the rider closer to his surroundings and to nature in general.

Solowheel Unicycle

Solowheel Unicycle

Think of it as the world’s smallest Segway – the self-balancing Solowheel can propel a rider up to 12mph, for up to an hour on a charge. It weighs just 20 pounds and can be carried anywhere.

John Deere Gator XUV 620i SE

The most bad ass utility vehicle we’ve ever seen, the 620i Special Edition adds extras like carbon fiber hood trims, 5-spoke wheel alloys and sport seats to the rugged 4WD 620i XUV. Golf, anyone?

The Ultimate Road Rocket

The Ultimate Road Rocket

Tim Cotterill designed the Road Rocket trike over 30 years ago but only recently built it. It has a top speed of 200 mph, a massive 1000 hp and has a built-in parachute to slow it down, just in case.

Nomad RV Concept

Nomad RV Concept

This oddity comes to us from designer Mario Pitsch. For a future in which global warming has turned us into nomads, the egg-shaped car would extract water from air and be fueled by an algae reactor.
