Commando Bentley

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Army-camouflage has to be the worst pain choice for a Bentley.

I think I’d rather drive Paris Hilton’s pink Bentley than get behind the wheel of this odd looking thing. I think army-camouflage should be banned as a luxury vehicle paint, it just makes no sense.

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The Eliica prototype created quite a lot of hype when it was unveilled in 2003, both because of its incredible specifications and ugly looks.

The New BMW Z4 Paints

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

BMW presents the new Z4 in an original painting event.

It’s not exactly a Picasso but the Z4 did a pretty good job considering it only had 4 wheels to work with. The wheel-painting may not have come out as good as the BMW people hoped, but the new Z4 is smoking hot and like just about everything the German manufacturer ever launched, it’s likely to be a hit.

Aerocar – Drive Through the Sky

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Finally, a car that really flies.

Aerocar was invented by Moulton “Molt” Taylor in 1956 and got patents both as a road vehicle and as an aircraft that same year. After the original prototype Moulton built three other flying cars, three of which still exist today.  Aerocar is made-up of a small car and a trailer the wings and the fuselage. As you can imagine the car’s engine is pretty powerfull so maybe you can use it in races, with its looks, the opposition won’t know what hit them.

It’s pretty incredible that a flying vehicle has been available in real life for so long, and we only saw similar stuff in sci-fi films. If you’re looking to buy a car like the Aerocar, you might want to visit Aerocarforsale there’s one on sale. If you do buy an Aerocar, remember where you first read about it, fly over and take for a flight.

Pen-covered Mercedes-Benz

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Costas Schuler saw a book about art cars 5 years ago and was fascinated by them. He knew he wanted to make one of his own but didn’t know where to start, until one morning he woke up and knew he wanted to do something with pens. So he started covering his old 1981 Mercedes -Benz with pens, and he’s been doing it ever since using pens donated from people all around the world.

Costas is known as The Pen-Guy and his car is called Mercedes-Pens and together they travel the country collecting pens and putting smiles on the faces of those who spot them. The Mercedes-Pens is now covered with over 10,000 pens both on the inside and the outside.

For more info on The Pen Guy and his creation, visit his official site.

The Dog Car

Remember the movie “Dumb and Dumber” starring Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels? That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this puffy treasure. I remember that goofy car of theirs with the red tongue sticking-out and this is comes pretty close. My compliments to the designer. Here is the Dog Car:

A Car Cocktail

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What happens when you try to build a car using parts from several different other cars. Well a Nissan Maxima owner from Kuwait wanted to find out first hand so he started working. He replaced the front of his Nissan with the front end of a BMW 7 series, the bumper of a BMW M3, he replaced the front doors with sleek Lambo doors, he got the hood split in half and got the rear wing of a Toyota Supra. You can check out the result for yourself, some will love it, others will hate it, there’s no in-between.

Well I doubt it, but you have to admit if this tuned up Smart would be the next Batmobile everyone’s jaws would hit the floor. I’m not holding my breath for this ever happening, but a guy can dream. The Batsmart concept was presented at SEMA 2008 auto-show.

The Knitted Bike

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I remember watching my grandmother while she knitted us all kinds of clothing but she never made anything like this. This is the Knitted Bike by Theresa Honeywell and, as you can imagine it’s not all knitted, just on the outside. On display at the Georgia Museum of Art, this masterpiece is made up of a manly element, the motorcycle and a daily element of femininity, the knitting.

F-35 Joint Strike Fightermobil

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Dutch artist Arthur van Poppel created a perfect replica of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and you’ll be happy to know it’s not just a replica, but a cool contraption. Built to scale and in incredible detail the JSF replica comes equipped with a mean sound system, monitors in the cockpit and special effects like spewing water smoke or confetti. It’s also drivable although it doesn’t come close to the F-35‘s real speed, the only things it can’t do is fly and shoot missiles.

Bad Cases of Overtuning

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I love modded cars as much as the next car enthusiast, but only when the modding is done with a bit of taste. And this clearly isn’t one of those cases. I know they probably went way overboard on purpose, to create the most outrageous rides they possibly could, but man are these things wack or what!
