None of us can afford a Bentley, but nevertheless, this is a brilliant car. The trunk features an umbrella holder with the backseat sporting a cocktail set complete with shot glasses. The intricacy! The detail! The Arnage Final Series from Bentley is the last run of the Arnage, which was started in 1998. Only 100 of the Final Series will ...

MagLev Toy Train

You’ve simply got to watch this entire video of a model Maglev train that’s powered by liquid nitrogen. It gets colder than 183 degrees C (361.4 degrees F) and encounters no resistance. Give it a push on a track and it’ll fly around it perfectly until the liquid nitrogen runs out. I just find it fascinating to watch a model ...

The Simeone Foundation Car Museum

This past weekend, I spent my Saturday visiting the Philadelphia-based Simeone Foundation Museum, Fred Simeone’s personal collection of historic race cars. The museum is packed with cars from the early 1900s up to 1970 (with a few oddballs thrown in for good measure.) I took over 120 pictures at the museum, highlighting every detail.

I’m A Dancing Robot, No Time To Talk

Ever since that damn Transformers movie, car manufacturers just can’t get enough of displaying their new cars as dancing robots. Of course, it’s hard to forget Citroen’s line of commercials, which began in 2004 (prior to Michael Bay’s film) and since then has multiplied. The latest in Citroen’s line of cars-gone-robots is the C4. By C4, I don’t mean the ...

Ferrari Station Wagon Is Busted

I guess enough money can make anyone talk. Ferrari custom-built this four-door 456 Venice Station Wagon for the Sultanate of Brunei. I guess oil-rich sultans need a place for their kids and soccer equipment too. It’s just so fucking ugly! Ah! I can’t look at it. If you must, there are more pictures after the jump. You’ve been warned.

In a world of good-guy smugglers and noble Jedi, one Sith must instill fear any way he can. That’s why Darth Vader built this hot air balloon. Not just because the town fare is approaching and Vader wanted to make sure he’ll be soaring high next to the Yogi bear and Batman inflatables but because Vader wishes to scare away ...

DIY: Hurricane Tether

We all love our cars. We’d go to extreme measures to protect our automobiles even during a hurricane as extreme as Ike because let’s face it: no one wants to drive through flooding waters when they can just tie their car to a tree and hope for the best. C’mon, what’s the worst that could happen? The tree could fall ...
