We Can’t Help But To Cringe At This Over-modded Elantra With Iron Man-inspired Paint Job

You know we have a tag called “Weird Stuff”? Yea. We do. Under normal circumstances, custom cars will never fall under this category. It is almost impossible to brand a custom ride as “Weird Stuff” unless it was one that looks like a dick, or to be precise, one that was intentionally modeled after a man’s penis. Unfortunately, this is the day we stumbled upon one that fits squarely into this “Weird Stuff” tag and the custom ride in question is this not-so-tastefully-done third-generation Hyundai Elantra. I mean, as if modding an Elantra isn’t bad enough; to make it look like this is borderline blasphemy. Man, it sure takes a unique mindset to even dream up with this.

This Is The BMW P63/1, The Heart Of BMW’s WEC Contender, The BMW M8 GTE

Adoration for cars is beyond aesthetic. A true car lover will learn to adore the motor as much as the power it pumps out. I am not sure about you, but I, for one, is a person who love marveling at the engine as much as driving the car, or admiring its bodywork. This is the very reason why when I saw the press text from BMW, detailing the heart of the BMW M8 GTE, I get all wet with excitement and I felt compelled to share it with you folks. Continue reading This Is The BMW P63/1, The Heart Of BMW’s WEC Contender, The BMW M8 GTE

Hyundai Fuel Cell Electric Cars Drove Itself From Seoul To Pyeongchang

If you have not been keeping abreast with car innovations, you may want to know that South Korean automaker Hyundai has been working diligently in the area of fuel cell-powered electric vehicles and it has made some serious progress in this area. To showcase the company’s fuel cell development, the company has commissioned a head-turning, very black pavilion that is part art installation, part education center that aims to entertain and at the same time, educate visitors about its fuel cell technology. But the darkest building in the world is not the only thing the company had going; the automaker also announced, on February 4, a fleet of Hyundai next generation fuel cell electric vehicles had successfully completed an autonomous journey from Seoul to PyeongChang.

About KIA “Muscle Car” Stinger And Upcoming KIA Rio GT-Line Hatchback

KIA is last name one would expect to go all out about performance, but here it is, the company’s image of performance is forever imprint with the much lauded and I dare say, most anticipated, “muscle car,” Stinger. When we first saw the concept last year, we were did not think it will make it to production, but it clearly did. I know. I may be late on this, but still, it will be a sin not to mention this monster machine from the South Korean car maker. The thing is, there are not rules in naming a car, but to have a car with a moniker like ‘Stinger’, it has an unspoken expectations Continue reading About KIA “Muscle Car” Stinger And Upcoming KIA Rio GT-Line Hatchback

Is This Tesla Hearse A Fitting Display Of The Death Of Gas Automobile?

I have no idea how did we missed this. This particular dark custom Tesla Model S went viral when it surfaced back in 2016. Notwithstanding that it is over a year old, we thought it will be a good idea to mention it since there may be folks like me who aren’t aware and also because, Zachary Shahan of CleanTechnica had the opportunity to see it in person and thus, wrote an article on the backstory of this one-of-a-kind Tesla hearse (and there’s a video too).

A Super Rich Person’s Aston Martin Valkyrie Is Going To Have A Moon Dust-infused Paint Job

Unless you happen to own a space rocket-making company, chances are you will not be able to make your car literally out-of-this-world by letting it hitch a ride on a rocket.

Nissan Replaces A 370Z’s Wheels With Skis And Tracks, Calls It 370Zki

Do you own a 370Z? Yes? But can your 370Z take on the powdered ground? Probably – if you have snow tires/snow chain on its rolling stock, but I bet it will not be as maneuverable as this 370Z here. Specially constructed for this year Chicago Motor Show, this snow-going 370Z sports a head turning geometric pattern wrap, yellow tinted headlights and shares much of the regular 370Z features, including the a 3.7L V6 motor that puts out a healthy 332 horsepower, 7-speed auto gearbox, cloth power-folding roof et cetera, but the similarity does not continue beyond the drivetrain; this snow beast here is in effect, a snowmobile – thanks to the skis and tracks it now rolls on. So, you still think your 370Z’s good for the heavily powdered mountains? Well, think again. Continue reading Nissan Replaces A 370Z’s Wheels With Skis And Tracks, Calls It 370Zki

Indonesia’s ‘Two-Faced’ Car Has Two Front Ends, Never Have To Go Reverse

Outrageous car mods are not new, but what one man did could easily snag the weirdest car mod ever. The Indonesian in question is a 71-year-old mechanic from Bandung, Indonesia, who, strangely, had this dream of owning a car that has no boot. Or to be more precise, Roni Gunawan had the dream of owning a car that has two front ends. Like, you know, two hoods, two engines, two windshields and all the works that made up the front end of a regular car. And mind you, it is not just any car stitched with another front end, but one that can be driven whichever end he decided to hop in.
