Paul Smith Touched 65’ Porsche 911 Is Possibly The Coolest 65’ 911 Can Gets

What you see here is a no ordinary 1965 Porsche 911. It bears the iconic mark of British fashion figure Paul Smith. It has a body color that of the famous “artist stripe” familiar to fans of Paul Smith. The result pretty much speaks for itself. A classic suddenly has a different lease of life. The Paul Smith colors, in 1960s-appropriate saturated hues, were applied by Porsche tuner Sports Purpose, turning a timeless classic even more timeless and well, very artful.

ICON4x4’s New Ford Bronco Is A True Old School Delight

Love the classic Ford Bronco, but wish it could be more updated while not losing its old school charm? If so, we think the ICON4x4 Old School BR will have all your check boxes ticked. Once again the Californian builder has weaved its magic on a Ford Bronco, but less all the heavy stuff in what the founder, Jonathan Ward, described as “naked classic.” Continue reading ICON4x4’s New Ford Bronco Is A True Old School Delight

75-Year-Young Gramp Here Drives An Unassuming VW Golf R With 600 HP

Sleeper car is, by definition, “a car that has high performance but has an unassuming appearance.” While the Volkswagen Golf R is hardly a standard or economy-class car that describes a sleeper car, this particular right-hand-drive model owned and driven by 75-year-young British gramp Arthur is somewhat of a sleeper among the VW Golf Rs. I know how that sounds. It sounds ridiculous, but it is in fact a sleeper of VW Golf R. Continue reading 75-Year-Young Gramp Here Drives An Unassuming VW Golf R With 600 HP

A Dirt Bike Motor Turned A Barbie Ford Mustang Into A Drift Beast

Well, this one is going to make Ken looks like a wuss (not that he isn’t anyways). The dudes over at YouTube channel Grind Hard Plumbing Co has turned a Power Wheels Barbie Ford Mustang into a crazy ride that will most definitely win the world famous plastic doll with unrealistically proportional body shape the fastest doll ever. Unfortunately, Barbie won’t get to ride it. In fact, we are glad that she can’t. We don’t wish to be seeing Chucky on the loose. Continue reading A Dirt Bike Motor Turned A Barbie Ford Mustang Into A Drift Beast

Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk Has 1,012HP, Wiped 1/4 Mile In 10.7s

What’s your impression of a Jeep? Probably just a good, off-road family car, but never a speed demon. Well, that is until 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes around. Armed with a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine, this monster of SUV rockets from 0-60 (0-97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and ripped through the quarter mile in 11.6s. Astounding, indeed. That’s super duper quick for a SUV, but for the folks at Hennessey Performance, it is never enough. Continue reading Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk Has 1,012HP, Wiped 1/4 Mile In 10.7s

Here’s A Prove That Loud Cars Always Get Unwanted Attentions

Here’s a video of a Nissan GT-R that purportedly has 1850HP under the hood being pull over by a police officer. Now, there was no explanation as to why it was pulled in, then again, looking that the massive, wider-than-its-body rear wing, we can only speculate that mods were the issues – specifically, the wing. The ride is super low too and has flared fenders which looks like a wide body kit. Is this the most beautiful Nissan GT-R we have seen? Nope. Certainly not.

You Can Now Buy A Beautifully Rebuilt 76’ Triumph Stag For £37K

If you have a thing for classic rides by a defunct marque, well, then I pretty sure you will dig this rebuilt 1976 Supercharged Triumph Stag. Apparently, build by West London-based Triumph specialist, Enginuity, this beautiful 76’ example features modified suspension, all-round disc brakes, and BMW limited slip differential supplied by Monarch and Chris Witor. The car was driven up Prescott Hill Climb and signed British Formula One legend Sir Stirling Moss in 2011. Continue reading You Can Now Buy A Beautifully Rebuilt 76’ Triumph Stag For £37K

Here’s Another Off-road Bentley Continental GT You Can Buy

So, you missed the only chance to own an off-road prepped Bentley Continental GT, but deep down, you know that you still want one. Badly. Well, here’s the good news. While the Bentley Continental GT “Offroad” peddled by an outfit called Classic Youngtimers Consultancy may not be the same machine featured in NatGeo’s Supercar Megabuild, but it should does the job just as well. Powered by the same revered but really quite unnecessary complicated 6L W12 engine, this once made-for-tarmac luxe beast kicks out 560 hp and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque that would enable it to wipe the century sprint in mere 4.8 seconds and makes 197 mph (318 km/h) top speed. Continue reading Here’s Another Off-road Bentley Continental GT You Can Buy

Kiwi Dude Cramped A Tiny, Working Kitchen Inside A Peugeot iOn’s Trunk

To be honest, I have no idea if I should file this under ‘Living, Camping’ or ‘Autos, Cars’ because, New Zealander Gavin Shoebridge’s (AKAKiwiEV.com) kitchen-in-trunk is part car mod, part camping hack, or something of sort. So, yeah. Gavin did something almost unimaginable here: he actually installed a fully functional kitchen into the back of his electric car. And mind you, he did it on a car, not a van. Or should we say, a very, very tiny electric car. The very, very tiny electric car here is a 2011 Peugeot iOn which, if you think about it, is quite a feat in itself given the size Gavin has to work with. I mean, seriously, there was clearly no luxury of space like a van or SUV has. Continue reading Kiwi Dude Cramped A Tiny, Working Kitchen Inside A Peugeot iOn’s Trunk

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.
