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.

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

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). Continue reading Is This Tesla Hearse A Fitting Display Of The Death Of Gas Automobile?

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

Steeda Unveiled Ford Q500 Enforcer Mustang With 70 More HP For Europe

Folks in Europe who are drooling over U.S. variant of Ford Mustang GT that has 460 horses can stop doing so because, Steeda, “the world’s largest privately-owned Ford performance-based specialist,” has a turnkey Mustang that draws 480 HP out of the 5.0 V8 motor aimed squarely at the EU market. And Steeda is giving it a intimidating name to match: Q500 Enforcer. The Ford Q500 Enforcer Mustang is part of Steeda’s SSV range of tuned Fords and with 480 ponies, it has 70 HP over the stock model’s 410 HP and 70 lb/ft (95 Nm) torquier, at 485 lb/ft (658 Nm). Continue reading Steeda Unveiled Ford Q500 Enforcer Mustang With 70 More HP For Europe

Tom Hanks Is Getting A Custom Restored Fiat 126p Because, Tom Hanks

We are featuring this particular Custom Restored Polish Fiat 126p not because it was created specially for Hollywood actor Tom Hanks. OK, maybe just a little. Anyways, thanks to Hanks’ multiple posts on Twitter of him posing with this now-classic 70s Polish-made Fiat, some fans in Poland decided that Tom deserves to have one. 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

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

Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

Modding minivan, AKA MPV, is borderline waste of time (OK. IT IS a waste of time). I mean, seriously, what can one get out of it? Speed? With so many people in it? However, if you are thinking of turning a minivan into a BatVan, or a Goddard, a Federation Type 6 Shuttlecraft straight out of Star Trek: The Next Generation you see here, then that’s a different story. In fact, if you are hell bent of making a statement with your mundane van, those are the only two mods you should consider. Period. The Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car was from a few years ago (as far back as 2014). Continue reading Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense
