Curtiss Warhawk Bike

Curtiss Motorcycles has done it again. At this point, should we even be surprised? The shop has put out a coterie of impressive custom jobs in years past. Its newest, called the Curtiss Warhawk, is no different. Like its siblings, the bike is a beastly bang-up job that says, “Screw it. We’re not about subtle.”

Indeed, it’s immediately apparent just after one glance that this is no ordinary ride. But explore its innards and you’ll find an equally impressive array of specs to match. First off, there’s a 132 cubic-inch triple cashaft V-twin engine. That amounts to 150 brake horsepower output — on a bike that weighs 570 pounds.

The chassis, an aluminum monocoque, features a double wishbone parallelogram front fork. There’s also a fabricated rear aluminum swing arm to round out the metallic profile. Top speed is rated at over 165mph. How much does it cost? Well, you can get this one for your garage just for the low, low price of $112,00.

By the way, this is the first Curtiss motorcycle in 105 years, if you can believe that. It’s also the last Curtiss to feature a Petrol V-twin engine. If this is something you think you want, act fast. The shop will make just 36 examples, so you better get that check ready stat. This is also the first and last of its kind, just so you know. Curtiss, which changes its name this year, will switch to all-electric propulsion for their builds moving forward. What a swan song, though.

Lightyear One Solar Electric Car

The automotive industry is marketing electric vehicles as zero-emission alternatives to raise environmental awareness. However, depending on how your local power grid generates electricity, it might not meet the qualifications. In concept, these models are indeed emission-free, but the need to plug it in will make you think otherwise. If you want to cast all doubt aside, the Lightyear One is the all-electric machine that rightfully earns the aforementioned classification.

To be clear, the Lightyear One can still charge using the outlet or charging stations, it has an ace up its sleeve. A closer inspection reveals the innovative approach that the EV takes to keep its batteries juiced up. State-of-the-art solar cells are covering the roof as well as the hood. There are 16.5 feet of these soaking up the rays under a durable sheet of safety glass.

The company claims that it is robust enough to support a full-grown adult. Likewise, these are not your standard solar cells, because each panel works independently. Moreover, these reportedly generate 20 percent more energy than traditional models. Although it can in theory fully charge the batteries, it will take way longer than plugging it in.

The Lightyear One can manage about 450 miles on a full charge but will be longer when the solar cells do their job. We believe that solar charging is its biggest feature that other EVs will eventually adapt later on. Each of the in-wheel motors reduces energy loss and provides exceptional handling during your drive. Pre-orders are now available with 500 examples available for the first run and a 2021 delivery date.

Curtiss Zeus Bobber Motorcycle

Here comes another electric project from Curtiss, the Zeus Bobber Motorcycle. Curtiss isn’t messing around — this one is an absolute banger. Remember the Hera? Consider that a mere precursor to what the automaker has brought to us now. Its trend of making hyper-futuristic bikes continues here, with the Zeus Bobber fitting right inside a Scott Ridley sci-fi flick.

The modular design comes in a sleek, glossy black paint job, paired with an aluminum frame and solid carbon wheels. As a result, it is both light — just 475 pounds — but still very strong.

It’s got a suspension system that’s fully adjustable for racing and commuting. And the lithium-ion battery pushes the vehicle up to 280 miles. The electric motor generates 190 ponies, which is aplenty for an electric vehicle, and you get 145 pound-feet of torque, for good measure. That rounds to zero to 62mph in just 2.1 seconds, which is pretty amazing. And it’s so gorgeous to the point of looking fake. But trust us, this is no concept. It’s very, very real, and you can put an order for one now, if you got money to burn.

The bike is expected to roll off the assembly line in 2020, which is a bit further down the road, to be frank. If you really want it, you can deposit $6,000 now and wait to pay the full price of $60,000 once it hits the road. Hit the link below to learn how to order one now.

Lamborghini Urus ABT Sportsline Tuning

High-performance carmakers all constantly compete to release top-tier rides that will stand out. However, this usually floods the market with supercars and hypercars that speed-loving consumers will quickly snap up. Once in a while, something unique rolls out the factory that becomes a sensation of its own. In 2017, Lamborghini made a bold move and unveiled a modern SUV. This was the second unusual departure for the brand following the release of the LM002. Now the ABT racing team is taking the latest model and creating the Lamborghini Urus ABT Sportsline model.

As expected from the group, it will be tweaking the stock version with a whirlwind of upgrades. The goal to push the high-end SUV further up the ladder. Perhaps their ultimate goal is to unlock all of the hidden potentials within the Urus. The group will be tuning the engine control unit (ECU) of the 4-liter twin-turbo V8 to add another 59 horsepower and 44 lb-ft of torque. This pushes the total output up to 710 horsepower with 671 lb-ft of torque.

We’re looking at a top speed of 189.5 miles per hour and a 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds. This is not the first tuning job available for the Italian SUV. Earlier this year, in preparation for a one-make rallycross event, the Lamborghini Urus ST-X concept caught us by surprise. Instead of messing around with its engine, engineers are substituting some of its metal parts with carbon fiber instead. The process will reportedly reduce its overall weight by 25 percent. However, we’ll gladly choose the Lamborghini Urus ABT Sportsline upgrade over the former.

Tesla Truckla

Given enough time, Elon Musk will eventually push Tesla to add more EV models to its lineup. Right now, we’re looking at the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 as its available offerings. Meanwhile, the Roadster, Semi, And Model 3 are on its way soon. So far, we have a sedan, a coupe, a crossover SUV, and a semi-trailer truck, but we know there will be more. On the other hand, if you have the skills, the time, the tools, and the willingness to destroy a perfectly good Model 3, then check out the Tesla Truckla.

What we’re looking at here is a custom all-electric single-cab pickup truck. To give credit where it’s due, this is one impressive work that showcases what Tesla can potentially offer in the future. The mad scientist behind this project is Simone Luna Louise Söderlund Giertz or just Simone Giertz for short. This Swedish mechanical maven loves to tinker around with robotics and also dabbles around as an inventor, TV host, and a YouTuber.

Her DIY masterpiece takes a brand new Tesla Model 3, an angle grinder, a welder, and some elbow grease to complete. In our opinion, the process is cringe-worthy because you’re seeing a pristine sedan getting cut up like it’s in a gory slasher movie. The part of the video where she starts to key the trunk makes us tear up. Anyway, her team started off by stripping off the interior of the vehicle then proceeded to remove the beams and the rear structure of the car. Thankfully, after installing the bed as well as the cargo rack, the Tesla Truckla becomes one awesome ride

Electric Ford Mustang By Charge Automotive

We all know that most major automotive manufacturers are shifting production away from conventional petrol-driven engines. However, your favorite car brand might not be on the list just yet. Although concept models are on show, production might not start until a few years from now. On the other hand, you might want to rely on other means to get what you want. Thankfully, one company is a step ahead with the electric Ford Mustang by Charge Automotive.

You read that right, this awesome ride is the work of a British group that specializes in upgrading classic automobiles. Gearheads all over know that the Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic American sports car ever.

Others might disagree, but the Blue Oval certainly made a masterpiece of a muscle car with this model. Charge Automotive is preparing only 499 examples of this all-electric machine. Furthermore, what’s noticeably cool about it is the pure retro aesthetics of these 1960 pony cars.

However, if you’re looking for the galloping horse emblem, it’s not there. Despite the familiar form factor, Charge Automotive is slapping their own logo onto this EV. Perhaps, it’s intentional to let the world know that you’re not inside a gas-guzzling beast, but cruising along on board an eco-friendly coupe.

The electric Ford Mustang features cutting-edge technology within that will be obvious inside the cabin. Instead of a vintage interior, you’re getting a modern setup with touch displays and the works. The electric powertrain promises up to 536 horsepower with 5,532 lb-ft of torque. Top speed maxes out at 149 mph with a 0-60 mph sprint of a little over three seconds. Charge Automotive claims that the 64 kWh battery should be good for at least 200 miles.

2004 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U500 On Auction

Depending on the auction scene you are following, supercars, one-offs, and other high-performance rides will be on display. On the flipside, if you’re after items that are quirky and maybe odd, there are times when it can pop up. One such instance is the recent posting about a 2004 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U500.

For those seeing it for the first time, it looks like a strange hybrid between a pickup truck and a tractor. This is a multi-purpose machine that can handle the most demanding workloads and won’t even break a sweat.

Powering this beast is a 6.4-liter Mercedes-Benz OM906LA turbo-diesel inline-six. This reliable powerplant produces 260 horsepower at 2,200 rpm along with an impressive 700 lb-ft of torque. Using an 8-speed manual transmission it delivers all that power to all four of its wheels. Furthermore, portal axles give the Unimog U500 a towering ground clearance. The 20-inch wheel comes with a central tire inflation system and sits on Michelin X tires.

The original configuration features a single cab enough for two people, but this one flaunts a crew cab from Plastisol. Meanwhile, it’s also sporting a three-way dump bed sourced from a Unimog model with a shorter wheelbase. Likewise, a custom rollover bar with LED lighting and a spare tire mount are welcome upgrades to the package.

Inside the cabin is a utilitarian setup with gray vinyl upholstery and splashes of blue plastic all around. Next, is the floating center console where all of the various controls are accessible. This 2004 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U500 may not appeal to everyone, but it certainly has a badass appeal that will call out to a buyer out there.

1975 Ferrari 312T On Auction

When you’re religiously following vehicle auction blocks, once in a while a gem goes up for sale. By some stroke of luck, you can sometimes stumble upon ultra rare items that immediately causes a frenzy among collectors everywhere. It looks like this moment is upon us as a 1975 Ferrari 312T will be up for bidding soon. It is one of the more impressive items that will be in the lineup at the 2019 Gooding & Company Pebble Beach event in mid-August.

What makes this race car so desirable is the fact that it was driven by the legendary Niki Lauda. Sadly, the three-time world champion passed away on May 20 of this year. Formula One fanatics will recognize it as the machine that helped rack up his victories on the race track. Moreover, it is reportedly one of the five built by Ferrari to compete in the 1975 season labeled chassis 022. The 312T owes its design to Mauro Forghieri, the brand’s mechanical engineer

For those wondering what the “T” in the 312T means, it refers to the transverse engine-mounting setup. This configuration enhances the race car’s cornering capabilities, which alongside the exceptional driving skills of Lauda, produced consistent podium appearances.

Powering the 1975 Ferrari 312T is a Flat-12 engine that can produce up to 500 horsepower. We can already imagine the bidding to skyrocket up to insane amounts. Nonetheless, this is hardly out of the ordinary given the pedigree and history of this superb specimen. We can’t say for certain until the hammer falls during the auction and one lucky buyer walks away with the prize.

Land Rover Range Rover Velar Project Kahn P300 Pace Car

Earlier this week, we received exciting news about an upcoming armored SUV with insane power. We’re talking about the 1,000 horsepower 2020 Rezvani Tank, which is an insane upgrade over its predecessor. So far, it’s one ride that shaping up to be a monster for good reason. However, before the week ends, we are getting word that another badass SUV is on show. Therefore, its time to check out the Land Rover Range Rover Velar Project Kahn P300 Pace Car.

The name is definitely a mouthful, but with the slew of upgrades Kahn is throwing in, it deserves to keep it. What we love about this custom job is the sleek and stealthy appearance of the matte black colorway it’s sporting. The shop calls it Satin Black with Bronze detailing and it looks absolutely stunning on the SUV. Moreover, the 23-inch Pace Car Wheels come in a Dark Bronze tint that adds a layer of elegance to its ebony aesthetics.

Meanwhile, we’re also seeing generous amounts of carbon fiber components that help with overall weight reduction. To match the classy exterior of the SUV, the interior sports a matching tone, which is exceptional. All of the seats feature Herringbone-quilted and perforated leather upholstery, while the doors panels also get a leather treatment. Owners will likewise find that almost everything inside is covered in premium leatherwork. It’s not every day that you can drape about 90 percent of a vehicle in black and get away it. However, the Range Rover Velar Project Kahn P300 Pace Car manages to do so with style.

2020 Rezvani Tank SUV

We’re so thrilled to bring you another badass ride courtesy of the folks from Rezvani. This is so special because the company is completely redesigning its SUV platform into something way better. This is a company who knows that men are kids at heart who just want a ride that’s utterly ridiculous, but cool nonetheless. We’re talking about aesthetics that ooze pure machismo from any angle. Just look at the original Tank model that continues to impress us even until today. Now it’s ready to give is the 2020 Rezvani Tank and we are genuinely hyped about it.

So far, Rezvani is holding off on most of the spec sheet for this menacing machine. However, they’re willing to feed us exciting tidbits that will keep us on the edge of our seats. First of all, let’s recall that its predecessor was already touting an exceptional 500 horsepower from its 6.4-liter V8 engine. Buyers also have the option to upgrade it into a 6.2-liter Dodge Hellcat V8 for up to 707 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 2020 version of the Tank offers a similar service but tunes the output to an insane 1,000 horsepower.

Furthermore, were likewise looking at a new suspension system that they’re sourcing from Fox Racing. You probably already know that the outgoing model was a fully-armored beast that eats bullets for breakfast. We’re guessing that the 2020 Rezvani Tank will sport the same personal protection package. Moreover, it appears that the Military Edition will throw in a military-grade electromagnetic pulse (EMP) protection system. It seems that this new model is shaping up to be on a whole new league of its own.

BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

The new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe comes with 523 horsepower and a twin-turbo V-8 engine. It’s based on the two-door model introduced just a year ago. This time around, the revamped unit boasts more space and easier entry, as well as the first-ever inline-six engine option for the 8 Series lineup.

The sportier M850i variant is BMW’s most expensive models ever. This one’s due out in showrooms sometime this September with an unspecified six-figure asking price. That’s when all option boxes are checked, though.

The four-door coupe is nine inches longer and 1.2 inches wider than its two-door predecessor. BMW will offer both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive variants with a choice of 335 ponies on a six-cylinder engine. Or, if you really want to up the ante, a 4.4-liter V-8 with 523, as we’ve mentioned.

The six-cylinder rear-wheel-drive 840i clocks 4.9 seconds to reach 60 mph, while the all-wheel-drive gets there in just 4.6 seconds. Both models have 130 mph speed cap with all-season tires. They can reach 155 mph with performance tires, though.

As for tech and interiors, the 8 Series Gran Coupe boasts an extensive set of standard and optional driver assist systems. This includes safety systems that could help prevent collisions and other optional features like an Extended Traffic Jam Assistant, which lets the car take over when there’s heavy traffic.

Also included is BMW’s latest-generation Heads-Up display system that fronts crucial information like vehicle speed, route guidance, and overtaking restrictions right in your field of view. There’s also CarPlay, Live cockpit Professional, and iDrive 7.

The 8 Series Gran Coupe launches sometime this September.

1990 BMW M3 Convertible

On auction now is this 1990 BMW M3 Convertible. It’s not dramatically vintage, to be sure, though time moves so fast that 1990 is basically a bygone era now. An era brimmed in punk-rock and Happy Meal toys that are actually cool.

But we digress. This car is one of only 786 convertibles examples built between 1986 and 1992. Needless to say it’s not that rare, but still quite unique, as it’s also one of the only 12 Spanish-market models with no catalytic converters.

Though it was finished in May 1990, the car benefits from recently renewed brakes. It also comes equipped with a revamped exhaust system and a new soft top. In the correct factory material, too, which will definitely sit well with purists.

The first-generation BMW M3 is a cool-enough car. It looks pretty good, though it lacks the sleek lines and cramped profile of the usual sports car. Still, it’s still perceived today as one of the best drvier’s cars of that era.

The car is extremely well preserved, and the parts are nearly all original save for a handful of bits and bobs. It’s also just on its third owner since new, which means it’s more than ready for a new set of hands. Sure, it’s no Ferrari. And it’s not the best on-auction BMW ride we’ve featured here. Still, there’s something to be said about simplicity, and in that department, this one nails it. More info from RM Sotheby’s when you hit the link below. Car offered without reserve.

Porsche 718 Cayman GT4

Like it or not, it looks like the manual transmission is slowly disappearing from modern vehicles. Automotive purists will tell you that the enjoyment and control that you get from using a stick shift is second-to-none. These days, it’s quite difficult to find a mid-range to flagship model offering a manual trim. However, if you look hard enough there are exceptional rides that are available in the traditional configuration. To the delight of gearheads everywhere, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 coupe is one of rare few.

It carries a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated mid-mounted engine capable of a 414-horsepower output along with 309 lb-ft of torque. This is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission with gear ratios optimally tuned for dynamic performance. This is all thanks to the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PVT) technology that improves steering response upon cornering. Tracks test results point to a zero to 60 sprint time of just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 188 miles per hour.

Handling is likewise superb as the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system actively adjusts the damping force as needed. Meanwhile, the Porsche Stability Management (PSM), ABS, ESC, and TC all work in tandem for stability and control.

The moment you slip inside the cockpit, the sporty interior and comfortable seating will make you feel at home. Generous usage of premium leather with intricate stitching exudes a luxurious vibe. Step outside to admire the sleek aesthetics of the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 as it sits on four 20-inch satin platinum wheels. You can likewise have it in Satin Aurum, Satin Black, or Silver.

Aston Martin Valhalla

Even until now, the fact remains that only society’s elite can afford to own supercars and hypercars. These high-performance automobiles are masterpieces that only the best designers and engineers can manage to create. Now, one British carmaker is preparing a worthy offering that will even tempt the gods. So let’s witness in reverence the impending arrival of the Aston Martin Valhalla. It’s going to be a mythical chariot on track to become a legend. Just one look at its jaw-dropping aesthetics is already giving us goosebumps.

Some of you might recognize it as the AM-RB 003 concept. It made its debut during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Insiders point out that Aston Martin is naming it Valhalla for a specific reason. Just like the Vantage and the Valkyrie, the brand is reportedly assigning all of its high-performance models names starting with the letter “V” as a tradition. You should know that British Formula One engineer Adrian Newey and Red Bull Advanced Technologies are also on board with the project.

This follow-up to the marque’s first hypercar uses ultra-lightweight materials and exceptional aerodynamics. It appears that the engineers are going with carbon fiber components all around to keep weight to a minimum. Intimate details regarding its powertrain are still under wraps, but it will apparently rely on a crossbred configuration. We’re talking about a high-output, high-efficiency V6 turbocharged petrol engine alongside a hybrid battery-electric system. We’re expecting to see a celestial spec sheet when more details regarding the Aston Martin Valhalla pop up in the future.

Alpine A110S

The Alpine A110 impressed everyone when it debuted with its beastly sports car innards. But it also angered stateside folks — Alpine still refuses to bring this ride to the United States. That isn’t changing for the more aggressive new flagship, the Alpine A110S.

Now on its third version, the Alpine A110S joins the A110 Pure and A110 Légende that brought back Alpine on the road. The most expensive and powerful of the bunch, the Alpine A110S has a very different character, says Alpine’s chief engineer.

“Its bespoke chassis setup makes it a very focused sports car. High-speed stability and handling precision are two of its defining characteristics. Although lap times are never a priority for our road cars, the new A110S is nonetheless faster than the A110 ‘s other versions.”

The 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine now boasts 288 ponies, up nearly 40 over the earlier rides. Torque is a beastly 236 pound-feet, sticking around its peak for 1,400 rpm — higher than the base A110. There’s a rear-wheel drive, like before, and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. But there’s a new brake-based e-differential system that features a new cornering behavior.

The Alpine A110S has better high-speed stability, more responsive steering, and revamped handling precision, says Alpine. As for the styling, you’ll find dark-finished wheels, carbon fiber all over, and orange brake calipers. It’s even got an exclusive Gris Tonnerre matte finish paint option. Optional, too, is a carbon fiber gloss-finish roof, and so is lightweight Fuchs forged alloy wheels. More info when you hit the link below.

1967 Jaguar Pirana

Think of countries that excel in the field of sports cars and no doubt you’ll come up with Italy and Britain. Between these two troublemakers, so much iconic cars has flown off the road. Most notably, you have the collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato. But today we’re taking a look at something far more overlooked.

Suffice it to say that this isn’t a really well-known design, though it would go on to heavily influence none other than Lamborghini’s Espada grand tourer. We’re talking, of course, about the 1967 Jaguar Pirana, which took the E-Type and paired it with Bertone’s long, low bodywork for a truly one-of-a-kind profile.

Responsible for the aesthetic, too, is no other than legend Marcello Gandini. As such, the car sports a semi-monocoque design that prioritizes luxury over the lightweight, racing-centric profile typical of E-Type units. For a beastly ride such as this, you might think it odd that the Daily Telegraph, a publication, commissioned this one. It debuted at the 1967 London Motor Show, polarizing purists of the E-Type. But, of course, it wowed those with an eye for innovation.

A lot of folks would go on to pursue their own commissions. As such, the Priana underwent several modifications. There’s a manual transmission variant. And an automatic. There’s a two-seater, too. Plus a 2+2 GT version. But here, now, it’s in its original specification, nostalgic glory all intact.

Unfortunately, the 1967 Jaguar Pirana didn’t proceed and stayed, sadly, a one-off. However, Gandini would use many of the concepts here on the production of Espada in 1968.

Bugatti Chiron Centuria

If someone thinks the Bugatti Chiron needs more retooling, they’re simply crazy. Yet that’s exactly the headspace Mansory needed to be in when it built this Bugatti Chiron Centuria, which is unbelievably more formidable than its base inspiration.

A listing for the car popped up Monday on the German tuning company’s website. The mod marks the first time anyone has dared to modify the Chrino, on its own already a pretty beastly affair. But as you know in the world of cars, the best is a peak not a plateau. Mansory knew the Bugatti Chiron set a high bar. So it moved that bar even further.

In all fairness, Mansory has the credentials to back it up. It’s been renovating Bugatti cars since 2009. And here’s how it describes itself:

“No other company can boast more experience in individualization of these million-dollar luxury sports cars than the team around company founder and designer Kourosh Mansory.”

You get the idea. As of this time, it’s not exactly clear if Mansory touched the ride’s 1,500 horsepower, 8-liter, W-16 engine. It did, however, redo the exterior. On top of a new Centuria blue paint job, the supercar now boasts bespoke carbon-fiber body panels, new side skirts, and a diffuser. It’s also got a redesigned wing, which will apparently improve the car’s aerodynamics.

Mansory also added larger intake inlets on the hood for better engine cooling. There’s a special exhaust and fully forged alloy wheels as well, complete with a turbine design and a carbon-fiber finish.

Now, on to the big question — how much?

Well, you can get the Bugatti Chiron Centuria for a cool Centuria for $4.8 million.

Custom Mercedes-AMG GT R By G-Power

Any gearhead will tell you that anything that flaunts the badge Mercedes-AMG holds some serious firepower. To be specific the GT R is a flagship high-performance coupe that will blow you away with its impressive specs. The stock trim already touts an exceptional spec sheet. We’re looking at 577 horsepower thanks to its 4.0-liter AMG twin-turbo V8 engine with 516 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to a 7-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission. If you think that this is as good as it gets, we can’t wait to change your mind when you meet the Mercedes-AMG GT R by G-Power.

This German tuning shop shows us that they can still work their magic to improve the GT R. Hence, what happens next is a slew of upgrades that will unlock the potential of this sleek machine. The stock engine is getting significant tweaks to unleash the beast within. G-Power is optimizing its the forged pistons, housings, the turbochargers, as well as the electronics. All of these changes push the 4.0-liter AMG V8 all the way up to 789 horsepower along with 627 lb-ft of torque.

Increasing power means that its 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission needs some reinforcement. Owners can even opt to slap on a set of Hurricane RR wheels wrapped with Michelin tires. The Mercedes-AMG GT R by G-Power tuning package offers multiple tiers for its customers. If the 789-horsepower option is too much for you, there are three other levels you can go for. However, we believe that owners will likely go for the full-course instead.
