Lambo-ish 680 HP 4-Door Electric Supercar, Elextra, Will Launch In 2019

If you have been longing for a performance ride that looks and performs like a supercar, but without bearing the guilt of stifling this little blue marble of ours, well, then the Elextra 4-Seat 4-Door Electric Supercar may be what you have been looking. As far as look is concerned, we can’t help but to see a tint of Pagani and Lamborghini silhouette in Elextra’s first ride. Though aesthetically uncanny, it does differentiate itself from those exotic rides by going family-friendly. How so? Well, if you look closely, it actually has four doors and on the inside, it is a full-fledged four-seater. Also, it has got four-wheel drive too. Sweet. Love the shape and also love the fact that it allows me to carry more than one girlfriend at a time. Not that I have that many, but you know, just in case.

Guy Made A Crazy Cool VFX Video To Sell His Old SUV And Won The Internet

There are some who sell used cars and then there is visual effect artist Eugene Romanovsky who, instead going through traditional medium like online classified ad, or selling to used car dealers, created a pretty out-of-this-world video to peddle his 1996 Suzuki Vitara SUV. Yup. That’s right. A Vitara, one of earliest incarnation of SUV by the Japanese automaker. However, the real star attraction of this 21-year-old SUV is not quite the vehicle itself (a ride which he described as his “best friend” for the last ten years. Cute), but it is the VFX-touched video that details its key features including chunky 235/75R15 off-road tires, the 96 HP 1.6L injection engine, a new exhaust converter that would make it “friendly to environment,” and manual gearbox with low gear.

Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Set New Record Towing A 285-Ton A380 Jetliner

Over 500 horsepower and no less 1,570 lb-ft (2,129 Nm) of torque. Those are what it takes to tow the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, but little did we know that a luxury vehicle like the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel can do the same. Granted, while it can, it obviously isn’t meant to do this on daily basis, much less doing it several times in a day. However, that didn’t stop Porsche from using the marque’s relatively puny 4.8 meters (16 feet) vehicle to tow the massive 73 meters (240 feet), 284 tons Air France A-380 out of Air France state-of-the-art engineering hangar at Paris Charles de Gaulie Airport and in the process, setting a new world record for the Heaviest aircraft pull by a production car last month, on April 21, 2017.

MINI John Cooker Works Will Turn A MINI Drop Top Into A Mobile Cook Top

Nothing can be taken seriously on April 1st. Really. Our inbox is flooded with intriguing products released on this day, but being April 1st, most of these ‘products’ are obviously not real; they are businesses out to prank us in the name of April Fools Day. Though so. We see the beauty some of these April Fools jokes because they are clearly pranks due to the level ridiculousness in them and yet, they are made so ‘convincingly’, often complete with product images, that you have to give it to the businesses for going this far to prank the world.
