Bentley Continental GT Rally Edition

An off-road Bentley! We love this, partially because its just cool looking and partially because it drives automotive purists up the wall. This wild, modified Continental GT you see here was built for National Geographic’s Supercar Megabuild TV series and was recently listed for sale on eBay. This four-wheel-drive battle-car has $32,500 worth of upgrades and is fully drivable on the road, it has a 6.0-liter W12 engine with loads of torque, eight Quantum Racing adjustable shocks, a steel external roll-cage, and bash plates for protecting the underbody. Completing the Dakar-like look are some wide fender flares, 17-inch wheels and a spare wheel and gas cans mounted on the rear.

CUSTOM BMW K65 | BY MOTO SUMISURA

Last week we did a popular feature on the awesome "Custom BMW K75" by Moto Sumisura, a garage in Italy ran by BMW fanatic Frank A. We snooped around his website and found this very cool BMW R65 custom scrambler. The bike was originally a 1982 BMW R65, it was stripped down to its bare bones and then reassembled as a one of a kind BMW R65 custom scrambler. We love the details on this, beautiful antique green leather based saddle, and great minimal chrome paint work....
