Custom Wheels Chairs


The guys at Emosign came up with an innovative idea to improve our sitting pleasure. The Evolution One custom chair is a leather chair that comes with beautiful custom wheels. The car rims are just for design, they don’t help the chair move but they do get the imagination going. Take a look at these beauties:

Bambgoo – The Bamboo Car

Developed by Kyoto University Venture Business Laboratory, Bambgoo is a fully functional vehicle that runs for 50 kilometers on a single charge. This ecological concept car is 270 cm long, 130 cm wide, 165 cm high and only 60 kg heavy. That’s what’s so special about Bambgoo, its body is made out of bamboo. If you happen to pass through Japan these days, you might want to check it out and maybe even take it for a short drive-test.

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

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.

The Next Batmobile?

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

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.

What started out as just another 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, has become the fastest Rolls Royce ever built. It is powered by a supercharged 9.3 liter V8 engine able to produce up to 1350 horsepower. the interior of the car is befitting of the Rolls-Royce brand, top quality leather, 4 LCDs and stylish gauges.

Experts have evaluated this super Rolls-Royce at $318,000.

F-35 Joint Strike Fightermobil

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

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!

TREKOL – The Floating Car

It may not look as good as your favorite SUVs, but TREKOL 39294 is more special than the usual service utility vehicle. What separates it from other cars is its ability to float on water at a speed of 10 km per hour, allowing scientists to access places they could only get to by boat. The TREKOL 39294 uses 6 unique tubeless tires that allow it to run through sand, snow and marshes without sinking even with 8 people on board and fully loaded.

The TREKOL is road legal, it has a fiberglass body and can withstand temperatures ranging from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius. This monster of a car is environment-friendly, its tires leave no rut and don’t damage the soil ( the pressure on the soil is between 0,1-0,4 kilos per square centimeter).

1967 Mustang Trike

You might not recognize the 1967 Mustang part of this Trike if you look at it from the front, but if you take a look from the back you’ll see this is indeed a vintage Mustang. The owner transformed it into a one of a kind Mustang Trike by adding the front side of a motorcycle. It took him 2 years to complete this masterpiece that was posted on eBay with a starting price of $34,499. There were no bids and now it has been taken off the site, but I’m sure there will be someone willing to take the 1976 Mustang Trike off the builder’s hands.

Home-made Lamborghini Replica

As you’ve seen in some of our previous posts, passionate people can create everything if they put they put their minds to it, even a home-made submarine, a home-made rollercoaster and even a home-made Star-Wars Landspeeder replica. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that someone managed to build a Lamborghini Countach replica in their own garage.

Sure it took this guy 10 years to gather the right parts and finish the model, but I’m sure he doesn’t regret one second of that time. It is 100% hand-built out of aluminum over a wooden buck, with an aluminum interior with leather dashes and Momo sport seats. It has the exact size of an original Lamborghini Countach, as  the builder used a real one for measurement.

Radical Hummer Tuning

Sure many might not consider this real tuning but according to me this is the most radical tuning I’ve ever seen, better than the super audio system even. The man who did this really wanted to go all out to stand out and as you can see in the photos he was successful. Anyone can get some “bling-bling” rims, a low spoiler and stuff like that, but wooden wagon-wheels? Genius, simply genius.
