BMW i8: Two Engines, 95 MPG, ‘Nuff Said

If you’ve got the $135,700 to spare and enjoy the prospects of 95mpg gas mileage (up to 703 miles per tank), then BMW has an Eco-friendly ride that you’re going to love. Part of what makes i8 such an efficient creation is how it stores two engines — one in the front, one in the rear — and allows them to operate independently of one another. As a result, you can also get from 0 to 60 in about 4.5 seconds. Last but not least, the sleek carbon fiber body makes this one look a lot better than any economy Read More

Meet The Lovechild Of A Truck And A Helicopter: The Black Knight Transformer

Just when you thought things like G.I. Joe and Transformers would never become a reality, Advanced Tactics has released one of the most unbelievable fantasy vehicles around — a unique combination of truck and helicopter known as the Black Knight Transformer.

The interior volume is similar to the Blackhawk UTX chopper, with plenty of room for carrying equipment, cargo, and wounded soldiers. Also, much of it is crafted from field-replaceable parts, making it as practical as it is Read More

Bureo Skateboards: Clean Oceans, Smooth Ride

Bureo Recycled Fishnet Skateboards offer cleaner oceans and a smoother ride when you’re cruising the boardwalks and sidewalks. Cleaner oceans because of the recycled materials; a smoother ride for the comfortable, 25-inch size and the extra grip built in to the design. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, these prototypes will be going live very soon. One particular thing that we like about the Bureo line of products is the ability to lock it up for peace of mind when not in use. That means you can get to where you’re going faster without having to lug around a huge Read More

Oru Kayak Wins Shark Tank

Today, we have an update on the Oru Kayak, an origami folding boat that we featured some time ago on the website. Since that time, the price and the stability amped up a bit, and the guys landed a deal with Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec at $500,000 for 25 percent (an overall valuation of $2 million). If you need a reminder, the Oru Kayak is a light, compact, and elegantly designed piece of functional modern art. On the water, it glides like a dream. It’s stable enough for beginners, and the length and contouring make it fast and sporty enough Read More

Rezvani Beast: Carbon Fiber Perfection On Four Wheels

The Rezvani Beast has one of the sleekest and most eye-popping bodies that we’ve seen in some time (on a supercar anyway). That’s probably because of the carbon fiber material, the mix of smooth curves and sharp angles, and the design prowess of Samir Sadikhov, the mind behind both the Ferrari Xerzi and the Aston Martin DBC. While it’s not the most powerful car we’ve seen come across these pages, it’s no slouch and has some really quick get-up-and-go, moving from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds (2.9 seconds for the 300 model and 2.7 seconds Read More

Rimac Brings 1,088 Horses To The Electric Car

The long fabled electric supercar from Rimac may soon become a reality, and if it does, get ready for some serious get-up-and-go. Rumored to clock in at a beastly 1,088 horsepower, this machine would effectively redefine what it means to be a supercar. According to a new report from AutoGuide.com, investors have given the go ahead to Rimac, and it could result in 88 copies that will be highly sought after among the elite — elite, because each one will cost a hefty $1 million. (In other words, don’t expect this to go mainstream any time soon.) Where Rimac could Read More

The Morgan Plus 8 Speedster Is An Old Dog With Plenty Of New Tricks

The Morgan Plus 8 Speedster is a truly beautiful piece of machinery from one of the best classic auto companies around. Morgan has been around for more than 100 years, and in that time, they’ve become known for their rolling hoods and sawed-off posteriors. With this new rendition, they keep all of what you love about the look and throw in some modern functionality that is truly special. This includes zero to 60 capability in just over four seconds. It gets there thanks in part to a 4.8-liter BMW V8 producing 367 horsepower, giving you the choice of six-speed manual Read More

Go-Float Boat Brings Electric To The Water Better Than Anyone

The Go-Float Vector is one of four in the company’s line of electric boats and one of the only electric planing boats in existence. While it isn’t considered the company’s “bestseller,” it definitely brings the goods in the usability department with speeds of up to 25 miles per hour and 10 hours of cruising time before ever needing a recharge. It’s 100 percent electric and powered by lithium, and it isn’t too shabby in the looks department either. Specifically, the Vector is driven by an inboard, liquid cooled, brushless AC motor powered by a lightweight 72v rechargeable lithium ion battery Read More
