Meet The World’s First Super Sport Utility Vehicle, The Lamborghini Urus

In what was arguably the biggest news today, luxury sport car maker Lamborghini has officially make its return to SUV market with the much anticipated Urus. That’s right. The Urus has broke cover today at Sant’Agata Bolognese. When it did so, it completely rewrite the SUV rule book and proudly stake claim as the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle (SSUV). Yep. Supercar, Super SUV, and it rightly is. With a 4.0L V8 twin-turbo tuck under the hood kicking out a supercar’s level 650 horses and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque, this elevated supercar makes the century mark in mere 3.6 seconds and reaches a too-crazy-for-SUV top speed of 305 km/h (190-freaking-miles-an-hour!). Think I almost ran out of breath just by writing that. And yet, it is still a SUV. A SUV. Continue reading Meet The World’s First Super Sport Utility Vehicle, The Lamborghini Urus

What Does The New Tesla Semi Mean For The Future?

The release of Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, may not be so interesting to the average consumer. We were more blown away by the Tesla Roadster 2.0 with its 1.9s 0-60 time and its incredible top speed. Don’t ignore the Tesla Semi just yet, however, because it is one of the most important milestones that will be remembered for years to come.

Watch A 60HP Ford Fiesta Pulls Off The Cheap Version Of Gymkhana

Videos like Ken Block’s famous Gymkhana series never fail to set boy racers’ heart fluttering. It even aspired some to do the same, but there’s just one problem: money. It is true that some may have the talent necessary to pull a Gymkhana off (even with R/C car, if I may add), but their abilities to do so is, like I said, only limited by the money they have. Nobody can’t afford to Hoon like Ken Block without the dough, or so we thought. As it turns out, you don’t need monster (pun intended) budget to pull a smooth Gymkhana as proven by Etienne Guerra. Continue reading Watch A 60HP Ford Fiesta Pulls Off The Cheap Version Of Gymkhana

Do You Know, One Of The 7 DeLoreans Used In BTTF Was Actually A VW Beetle?

Yup. It sure was and still survives to this day as one of the three left in the world (and the only screen-used DeLorean in private hands). Also, it was pretty damn expensive too. How expensive, you ask? It costs car collector duo, father and son, Bill and Patrick Shea of North Central Massachusetts a whopping $440,000 back in 2011. So, as I was saying, it was actually a VW buried beneath and the reason being, the director needs a DeLorean that could take the punishment of unforgiving terrain for the scene where Marty Fly had to drive the DeLorean Time Machine across the sparsely vegetated desert. Obviously, the lackluster DeLorean DMC-12 won’t be able to take the beatings and so, it was decided that a dune buggy set up was the way to go.

Lamborghini Makes Quite A Rally Car Too. Like, Who Knew, Right?

Think rally car and it is likely to conjure up brands like Subaru, Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Ford. One probably would never, in his/her life, think Lamborghini will make a good, much less a decent, rally car. Hell, we didn’t think Nissan or MINI makes a decent rally car even. Anyways, that being said, we cannot be sure if a Lamborghini will make a good rally car (good as in taking pole most of the time), but they are sure people doing it. Like this team here: Continue reading Lamborghini Makes Quite A Rally Car Too. Like, Who Knew, Right?

Nissan To Sell R32 Skyline GT-R Parts Again So That The Legend Can Lives On

The R32 Skyline GT-R is arguably the most iconic sports car ever made by Japanese automaker Nissan. It has captured the hearts of millions around the world and it is, up to today, a much sought after car. It is a modern classic that begs to be driven hard, over and over again until the end of time. Incidentally, R32 was very much my first love when it comes Japanese imports and so, it does come as a pleasant surprise (not that I will ever afford to buy one here, sadly) when Nissan Japan announced that they will start making Skyline parts, specifically for R32 Skyline GT-R made between August 1989 and January 1995, as part of the new NISMO Heritage program. Continue reading Nissan To Sell R32 Skyline GT-R Parts Again So That The Legend Can Lives On

Lucky for Hanks, these devoted fans managed to secure a 126p and turned it into this beautiful, bespoke example. Continue reading Tom Hanks Is Getting A Custom Restored Fiat 126p Because, Tom Hanks

Behold, The World’s Best Looking And Fastest Pizza Delivery Motorcycle!

What’s your impression of a pizza delivery bike? Probably ‘boring as hell’ because, it is. But that is before you have seen the Turbo Hero Extreme, a pizza delivery motorcycle based on Indian-made Hero Xtreme 150-turned-drag racer. Well, I guess that would make it a drag-racing pizza delivery bike, wouldn’t it? This particular attractive bike was the masterpiece from Dubai-based VR Customs and an entry to Dubai’s Bikers Cafe 3rd Build Off Competition, an annual event where three brand new motorcycles are given to local customizers to see who can came with the most brilliant custom. Not surprisingly, Turbo Hero Extreme is a winning entry. Continue reading Behold, The World’s Best Looking And Fastest Pizza Delivery Motorcycle!

Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

Dickhead is a vulgar slang defined by “a stupid, irritating, or ridiculous man.” Now, if Batman’s ride is a Batmobile, wouldn’t the aforementioned person’s ride called Dickmobile? And Dickmobile this is. I mean, seriously, we don’t even need to tell you this, do we? Not that the person who created it is a dickhead or anything. Just that it is too obvious what it is. The intention however is not as vulgar as it seems. As it turns out, this car was created way back in 1969 by one Steve Paige and it was meant to be an “art car”, but really what was its purpose is unclear to us. Perhaps if you know something about this rolling willy, you can point us to the right direction. Continue reading Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick
