Mini Bikes Are Cute, But This Custom Mini Goes Beyond Cute; It Is Stylish

One-Of-A-Kind ‘Rally-Spec’ Bentley Continental GT Sold For £40,800

In one episode of the National Geographic’s TV show, Supercar Megabuild, a Bentley Continental GT was ‘brutally’ put under the knife, turning it from a luxury road car into an apocalypse-worthy, luxury off-road vehicle. It was an act not all Bentley enthusiasts will condone and this being a Bentley, nobody would have fancy an off-road version anyways, unless, of course, it is an official factory example. Me, on the other hand, kind of love it, but I could be the minority and minor love it did get because, despite the 101 bids it has attracted when this one-of-a-kind ‘rally-spec’ Bentley Continental GT went on the block, it only managed to conclude with a £40,800 sticker (roughly US$55,000), which is lesser than an untouched Bentley Continental GT would have fetched.

Electric skateboard is a dime a dozen today. There are so many manufacturers out there today that consumers are basically spoilt for choice. Hell, you can even cobble one together with a drill if you really want one on the budget. In other words, there aren’t really any breakthrough in electric skateboard development. I mean, a deck, four wheels with a motor or two can hardly be ‘breakthrough’, really. Sadly, skateboard isn’t spared from the monkey see, money do syndrome. The best you get are, oversized wheels for off-road skateboarding, but alas, the concept remains pretty much the same. But the Ungoverned Drifter you see here is a whole new ball game.
