Lexus Luxuriates A Toyota Alphard Minivan, Calls It Lexus LM

In the modern history of automobile, a minivan is never a ‘cool’ ride. And by ‘minivan’, we literally mean cars that actually looked like a van.

Unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show 2019, the Lexus LM is not designed from the ground up to be the marque’s first luxury minivan, though.

Meet The Most Not Aerodynamic Lamborghini Huracan Mod Ever

There are rich kids and then there is this rich kid who bent the rule of car modifications. Meet Alex Choi, a 19-year-old young man who did the unimaginable: slapping a Lamborghini Huracan with a roll cage on the entire car… on the outside. Believe it. The images here aren’t Photoshopped, btw. Choi actually did that. In a video (with excellent cinematography, if I may add) posted on his YouTube channel, Choi described himself as a person who “live by the idea of being NOT what people expect or want you to be” and the Unicorn V3, as it is called, make good on his ethos.

1968 Kaiser Jeep M-712 Resto-Mod By Jeep Is 700+ HP Of Brilliance

It has been 3 years since we last posted about the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Why? Because, there weren’t anything really eye catching. Actually, no. We lied. The truth is, we missed those altogether. But this year, Jeep and Mopar has one concept that we find it hard to pass. The concept in question is this: the Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter. Riding wave of the surge of resto-mod in recent years, the Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter is, as the name suggests, based on the American light military truck 1968 Kaiser Jeep M715, AKA as Five Quarter for its 1 1/4 ton payload rating.

Imagine this: you wanted to hail a cab. You raise your hand to whichever taxi that’s coming your way in hope it is vacant.

Inspired By Stealth Fighter, Karlmann King Is The World’s Priciest SUV

Lets face it. Not everyone has the technical skills to make a real life Batman Tumbler like Bob did and also, not everyone is lucky enough to be commandeering a replica Tumbler in a race like, for example, Gumball 3000 Rally. Similarly, not everyone will have the chance to get behind the stick of a stealth fight like the F-117A Nighthawk. But fret not, if you have vaults of cash waiting to be disposed off, there is this: Karlmann King Luxury SUV. Continue reading Inspired By Stealth Fighter, Karlmann King Is The World’s Priciest SUV

Fisker Announced “Under $40K” “Mass Market” Electric SUV

Did anyone noticed Fisker did not make news at this year’s CES like it did last year? But a couple of months later, it suddenly dished out news that it is making “a practical, desirable and attainable” electric SUV. So how attainable are we talking about? Well, that would be a base price of below $40,000. At this point, there is nothing to show, save for a front-view render of the electric SUV that looks suspiciously like a Range Rover. As expect of such press release, it is laden with marketing talks that attempt to drive consumers’ emotion. It is not doing it for me, btw. Continue reading Fisker Announced “Under $40K” “Mass Market” Electric SUV

Finnish Dude Rides Over Frozen Lake In A Subaru With Saw Blade Wheels

Talk about reinventing the wheel… a Finnish couple kind of just did that, well, years after Adam and Jamie tried rolling on square wheels. But the Finnish couple behind the YouTube channel Beyond the Press, a channel that does wacky experiments, did not try to roll on square wheels. Instead, they swapped out the stock wheels of the 150HP Subaru Legacy AWD for 1/2-inch thick saw blades. That’s right. Thick, huge ass and crazy sharp saw blades as wheels.
