Tinger Track ATV

Nothing wrong with traditional ATVs and their wheels, but should they not get you where you want to go try hopping on a Tinger Track ATV instead. Tinger’s C500 boasts 500mm tracks that put little pressure on the ground and are backed by reinforced long-travel suspension to make for a comfortable ride, even over rough terrain and at speeds of up to 22 mph. It drives and functions just like a standard ATV…

Zona Rear-View Motorcycle Camera

Motorcycles are inherently more dangerous than the cocoons surrounding most drivers. And while you can’t prevent careless drivers from doing their thing you can at least be better aware of their incompetence and ride defensively when necessary with the Zona Rear-View Motorcycle Camera. The system employs three parts: a camera that mounts to the back of your motorcycle (and that’s powered by its battery), a receiver/battery pack, and a flexible display…

Kitty Hawk Flying Car

It’s not an automobile in the conventional sense, though the Kitty Hawk Flying Car is still plenty impressive for an early prototype. The Larry Page-backed Silicon Valley company just produced and tested a functional prototype (see it in action on YouTube) that looks something like a cross between a giant drone, a floatplane (thanks to two large pontoons for floating), and a Sea-Doo. Eight electrically-driven propellers beneath a net-like shield let…

BrakeFree Motorcycle Smart Brake Light

Considering two wheelers aren’t quite as forgiving as the four-wheeled cocoons most humans drive around in, motorcyclists can’t be too careful when it comes to visibility. The BrakeFree Motorcycle Smart Brake Light improves your rear visibility at all times while you’re riding, and especially while braking (and at risk for being rear-ended). Mount one to the back of your existing helmet with powerful neodymium magnets (and adhesive mounts) to…

Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan

It’s of course not a real thing yet, but the Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan excites us about things to come from the German automaker, in particular because this car (or at least the cars its design elements trickle down to) should sit in a middle-class-affordable price range. The car’s design is more minimal and continuous, with less creases and disruptive lines than its predecessor, and flush-sitting handles complement this. The…

Dodge Demon

To the untrained eye, the Dodge Demon might look like more modern American muscle in the form of an all-red Challenger with a bigger hood scoop. But under the hood it’s packing a 6.2-litre Hemi SRT Demon V8 that outputs 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque — the most powerful of any V8 in a production car, ever — and that, perhaps unsurprisingly, makes it the fastest (or faster…

Volocopter 2X Air Taxi

It looks like an oversized drone with extra rotors, and that’s basically exactly what it is. The two-person Volocopter 2X Air Taxi boasts an array of 18 rotors for redundancy, safety, and efficiency, so even several of them ceasing or malfunctioning won’t bring this aircraft down. Many other crucial components are also redundant and there’s a parachute on board as well, just in case, though the 2X promises to…

Ripsaw EV2 Personal Tank

What you do while you’re in the cockpit is your prerogative, but a Ripsaw EV2 Personal Tank in your driveway will, at the least, deter would-be thieves and burglars. Originally commissioned by the US military as a quick, nimble tank, the EV2 is now available to the public, albeit in limited numbers. It’s got 12 inches of suspension travel, a Diesel engine that outputs more than 600 horsepower, and a…

Bugatti Niniette 66 Yacht

If it looks familiar that’s because you’ve certainly already seen the car it’s based on: the Bugatti Chiron. Main difference being that the Bugatti Niniette 66 Yacht can float. The sleek aerodynamic vessel features a carbon composite hull and either a 1,000 or 1,200 horsepower Man V8 engine that efficiently cruises at speeds of up to 44 or 48 knots, respectively. Its open deck is functional but luxurious, as are…

Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e

It’s just a concept for now, but the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e represents what the luxury brand’s inevitable electrified future may look like. The drop-top would include a battery big enough to get about 310 miles of range like their petrol-powered grand tourers and also recharge quickly and sans cables via induction (think Qi phone chargers but on a much bigger scale). It’s fast, though just how fast we…

McLaren 720S

It’s lighter, stronger, faster, and sculpted to resemble the curves and edges of the Great White Shark. Yet the McLaren 720S is still absolutely distinctive of the British automaker in the best way possible. Its flowing lines are aerodynamic while providing plenty of air to cool its twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 M840T engine that’s capable of outputting 720 horsepower — good for a blisteringly fast 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds and…

Volkswagen Arteon

Out goes Volkswagen’s Passat CC. Enter the Volkswagen Arteon. Slightly bigger, lower, and more aggressive than its predecessor, the new five door coupe — probably so-called for its fastback roofline — is an elegant departure from VW’s rather monotonous styling as of late. Its facade is adorned with standard LED headlights alongside the six chrome-plated crossbars of its sizeable grille. One of six turbocharged four-cylinder engines powers the thing, ranging from…

Range Rover Velar

Land Rover’s freshly-announced Range Rover Velar fills the open space between the British brand’s Evoque and Sport models in more than one dimension. Wrapped in curvaceous sheet metal, this is Land Rover’s most aerodynamic model to date as well as its most minimal both inside and out, with smooth lines left unmarred thanks to retractible door handles and LED light clusters plus an ultra-clean cabin decked out with two large touchscreens controlling…

Can-Am Apache 360 Track System

An ATV’s big high-profile wheels make quick work of trails full of rocks, dirt, sand, even a bit of water. On snow or ice though they don’t fare much better than your car’s tires. The Can-Am Apache 360 Track System expands the off-season off-road capabilities of your Can-Am all-terrain vehicle — including recent Renegade and Outlander models — by adding four sets of treads that take the place of wheels. Since…

Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

Porsche’s sedan is getting a significant power and speed boost, but not by burning additional fossil fuels; it goes through enough gasoline already. The 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid couples a 4.0-litre 550 horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 to a 100 kW electric motor churning out another 136 horses for a grand total of 680 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Better yet it’s a plug-in, so you can roll…

Insta-Chains Automatic Tire Chains

Rubber and ice don’t play well together. So tires often need a helping hand in terms of studs or chains, both rife with compromises. And while the far more convenient Insta-Chains Automatic Tire Chains won’t fit on compact cars they’re godsend for trucks, ambulances, and buses that regularly have to drive through treacherous conditions. The device turns on at the flip of a switch within the cab, spinning up a…

Ferrari 812 Superfast

Not even its name is modest. The Ferrari 812 Superfast doesn’t play coy about its performance: this F12 successor boasts a 6.5-litre 789 horsepower naturally aspirated V12 that gets it from a dead stop to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and all the way up to a maximum speed of 211 mph. To keep this power in check the 812 also comes with Electric Power Steering for the first time in a…

Pagani Huayra Roadster

Horacio Pagani claims the Pagani Huayra Roadster is the most complicated project the carbon fiber supercar manufacturer has ever untaken. That’s certainly likely considering this Roadster is not only roughly 200 pounds lighter than the Coupe it’s loosely based on but also far stiffer thanks to the utilization of Carbo-Titanium and Carbo-Triax HP52 composite materials in its chassis, and all this despite its removable carbon and glass roof. A custom 764 horsepower…

Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet

The Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet builds off the G-Class, elevating it to a degree of luxury that makes the latter look rather pedestrian in comparison. An significantly extended wheelbase would give room for lugging more gear but instead that space is put to better use with two first-class rear seats, pulled from the S-Class, with massage functionality, integrated inflatable air chambers for fine tuning comfort, and everything you need to kick back…

Dodge Durango SRT 2018

The Dodge Durango SRT 2018 isn’t just a huge three-row SUV capable of lugging half a classroom’s worth of kids to sports practice and out-towing every other vehicle in its class. As its SRT moniker suggests it’ll also hold its own with many sports cars on the drag strip, if you’re into that sort of thing. A 3.9-litre HEMI V8 powers this truck, putting out 475 horses and nearly as much…

2018 Ford Mustang

From the outside and at a glance you mightn’t tell the 2018 Ford Mustang apart from last year’s model — at least if you don’t notice its aggressive front-end, hood vents, and new rear bumper — but the numerous refinements and upgrades add up.
