Rhino Xt

US Specialty Vehicles is a California-based boutique automaker that are bringing military style to the street. Their latest creation is the awesome Rhino XT, a modified Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a mean new look. Inspired by the Hummer HX, the Rhino XT is virtually unrecognizable as a Wrangler, it features a highly aggressive look with massive, riveted flared fenders, rugged bumpers, reinforced FRP body panels, designer tow hooks, and a redesigned heavy-duty roll cage. Inside you´ll find premium leather seats, leather-trimmed door panels, 3D-look digital instrument panel, Alpine navigation system, back-up camera view, among other enhancements. Powered by a 285-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Rhino XT is everything one needs in an All-Terrain SUV with the latest technology. And for $75K, that doesn’t actually sound like too bad of a deal.

Optimal turning radius and maneuverability.  The CJ3B outdoes Willy with much-improved handling and a GM Ecotec 210-hp engine. Each ICON off-road vehicle is meticulously hand-built with new parts....

1981 Land Cruiser FJ45

Another masterpiece to roll out of the FJ Company workshop. You’ve no doubt heard of the FJ40 Land Cruiser, one of the most iconic vintage 4x4´s on the road, and increasingly popular on the classic car circuit… but have you met the FJ45? The FJ45 Land Cruiser was produced in Japan from 1976 to 1986. This rugged workhorse could carry up to 13 people, and was designed to carry the troops (hence its nickname "the Troopy”). It was deployed as a commercial vehicle for mi...

CONTORTIONIST FOLDING BIKE | BY DOMINIC HARGREAVES

We don´t normally post prototypes, but occasionally, if we find something really special we have to feature it. Designer Dom Hargreaves entered the James Dyson Award to try and gain funding to take this folding bike forward. Most folding bikes are not as compact as this bike when folded, the Contortionist folds completely into the space of the wheels 26in circumference, and leaves a nice little pull handle for you to drag the bike around. The bike didn´t go into pro...
