Winnebago Revel Could Be the Ultimate Sprinter-based Camper

Winnebago, the recreation vehicle maker who is better known for crazy-sized RV that can’t go beyond paved roads, now has one that will delight fans of wilderness. Now, we do not want to question Winnebago’s experience here with regards to off-roading experience, but the spanking new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based Revel is quite a looker and it does look the part of the wild. Power comes from a stock 3L 6-pod Diesel motor, paired to a 5-speed automatic Tip Shift gearbox that sends 188 horses and 325 lb-ft of torque to an on-demand 4WD.

Madcap Inventor Show You How To Make A Jacuzzi On Wheels… With BBQ

Our favorite mad garage inventor, British plumber-turned-YouTube-inventing-celebrity, Colin Furze, is back and this time, he have received a special request from Google. The search giant wanted the madcap inventor to create something which could be used to advertise the Mountain View tech company’s search. In other words, the creation should be usable as a vehicle to promote using the products from Google’s advertisers and for companies to use them to sell. For a man who has an insatiable appetite to create, it is only natural for Furze to take up the challenge. Continue reading Madcap Inventor Show You How To Make A Jacuzzi On Wheels… With BBQ

One-Of-A-Kind ‘Rally-Spec’ Bentley Continental GT Sold For £40,800

In one episode of the National Geographic’s TV show, Supercar Megabuild, a Bentley Continental GT was ‘brutally’ put under the knife, turning it from a luxury road car into an apocalypse-worthy, luxury off-road vehicle. It was an act not all Bentley enthusiasts will condone and this being a Bentley, nobody would have fancy an off-road version anyways, unless, of course, it is an official factory example. Me, on the other hand, kind of love it, but I could be the minority and minor love it did get because, despite the 101 bids it has attracted when this one-of-a-kind ‘rally-spec’ Bentley Continental GT went on the block, it only managed to conclude with a £40,800 sticker (roughly US$55,000), which is lesser than an untouched Bentley Continental GT would have fetched.

BMW i Vision Dynamics Is The Electric Mobility Of “Immediate Future”

Described as an “electric mobility of the much more immediate future,” the BMW i Vision Dynamics bears a shell that indeed looks like a probable car of today, or at least, in very near future. Unveiled at this year’s IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt, the BMW i Vision Dynamics is a four-door Gran Coupe powered by an undisclosed electric drive that offers a range of 373 miles (600 km), promised a top speed of 120 miles an hour (200 km/h) and takes mere four seconds to cover the century sprint. These are numbers that are not out-of-this-world, which means, they are likely to be realized. Even the aesthetic, while ‘futuristic’ in a way, looks pretty down-to-earth.

Mercedes-AMG Project ONE Is Basically A Formula 1 Car In A Road Car Shell

Some people aspired to be a Formula One race car driver for, you know, the fame and fortune, but if you really love cars, like cars that are as powerful as the hybrid technology offered by today’s Formula 1 race car, the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is probably the closest anyone will ever get. The obvious pro of this ride is, it looks like a perfectly normal car that assimilate easily with the rest of the traffic. Never mind the exotic and the obvious, million dollar look. At least, you won’t look out of place or get overlooked by big rigs when you are on the road and also, you can at least bring a friend with you unlike a real Formula 1 race car.

It was a milestone, a historical event that has no grand ceremony, but this was it; the 999,999th Porsche 911 to roll from the line before the one millionth in the series and it was treated to a shiny coat of red paint job as opposed to the green the rest had before it. This very special Porsche 911 is destined for Canada where one lucky owner by the name of Rob Tenuta, a fifty-one-year-old contractor from Woodbridge in Ontario, is the proud owner and clearly, Rob is more than thrilled. The 999,999th Porsche 911 is Rob’s third Porsche. Prior to this ride, he already have had a Cayman in 2006 and a 911 Turbo in 2011. A special ride for a dedicated fan indeed.

New Nissan LEAF Unveiled, Wants You To Drive With Just One Pedal

Well, this is it. Nissan has taken the wrap off the new 2018 Nissan LEAF, the follow up to the grandaddy of modern day mass produced electric car which was first introduced to the world seven years ago and it is pretty damn awesome in both looks and specs. Also, it has one crazy idea up its sleeve: it wants you to drive with just one pedal. Yeah. You know how automatic transmission car helped eliminate one pedal? Well, the new LEAF did not actually eliminate yet another, but it does pretty much relegate the brake pedal to cold storage because Nissan’s new innovative e-Pedal kind of does it all in respect to acceleration and braking.
