Five Awesome Cars from Detroit Autorama 2014
Detroit’s big Autorama hot rod show just wrapped up this past weekend, and as usual, there were hundreds of awesome custom cars on display for the public to see. While we weren’t able to attend this year, our friends over at Brobility managed to get some quality time on the show floor, and shared some images with us.

Infiniti Q60 Pays Tribute to Bobby Unser at Amelia

Infiniti Q60 Pays Tribute to Bobby Unser at Amelia
Bobby Unser first won the 1968 Indianapolis 500 then went on to repeat his victory in 1975 and 1981, solidifying his place in racing history. Infiniti has crafted a Q60 convertible based on Unser’s red, black and yellow livery from his 1968 win and the car was on display at the Infiniti pavilion at the 2014 Concours d’Elegance on Amelia Island. The design was spearheaded by Infiniti’s worldwide Design Director Alfonso Albaisa who worked with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum to bring it to fruition. We’re not sure what Unser himself thinks of the ride, since the Q60 is overdue for a design update and these colors just don’t work for us.

1000HP C7 Corvette by Vengeance Racing

1000HP C7 Corvette by Vengeance Racing
The C7 Corvette Stingray is already a powerful bit of kit, but out of the factory its V8 “only” puts out 460 horsepower. That clearly isn’t enough for some folks, as is evidenced by this impressive upgrade by Vengeance Racing.

The Fanciest Van Ever Made

The Fanciest Van Ever Made
When we think of vans, we’ve usually got images of dirty, formerly white utility vehicles, or those awful 1970s Chevy and Ford vans that had airbrushed artwork, a moon-shaped window on the side and a scuzzy bed in the back.

AMS Performance: Behind the Scenes

AMS Performance: Behind the Scenes
If you think that performance tuning of road cars is something that only gearhead hackers do in their garages, you are sadly mistaken. After my recent visit to AMS Performance, I was completely taken aback by the amount of engineering skill and time that it takes to turn everyday sports cars into powerful, track-worthy beasts.

ABT Sportsline 730hp Audi RS6-R Avant
If the standard Audi RS6 Avant is simply too slow for you – with its twin-turbo, 560hp V10 engine — then perhaps you should give ABT Sportsline a call and see about their RS6-R Avant tuning package.

Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition Truck for Sale
Those looking for a truck with a difference will want to check out this one-of-a-kind 2010 Toyota Tacoma Concept that was outfitted to handle the most challenging driving conditions on Earth. The 4×4 was used on Discovery’s World’s Toughest Drive, and it took nearly two years to plan out and equip the truck for its dangerous polar missions.

Kode9 Roadster

Kode9 Roadster
While the Kode9 is based on the Lotus Elise, it sure doesn’t look like one. In fact, it looks more like Speed Racer’s Mach V than an Elise. It doesn’t hurt that it was designed by Ken Okuyama, the man behind the Enzo Ferrari when he worked for Pininfarina.

Nissan GT-R Cabrio

Nissan GT-R Cabrio
Godzilla has lost his top! At least that’s what a limited number of buyers will experience thanks to the team at Newport Convertible Engineering, who will be offering convertible conversions for the Nissan GT-R. While some may think the idea seems sacrilegious, the idea of enjoying the full power and control of this beast with the top down definitely has some appeal.

LED Lambos Light up Tokyo

LED Lambos Light up Tokyo
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about cars in Japan is that there’s a crazy nighttime custom car subculture. In this video, we meet a group of these drivers as they show off their exceptionally flashy Lamborghinis (and a Ferrari), several of which have been bestowed with an arsenal of bright and colorful LEDs and strobe lights.

Lingenfelter Camaro Retrokits

Lingenfelter Camaro Retrokits
While we’re big fans of the power and performance you can get in today’s Camaros, we’ve never been huge fans of their design – probably because all they ever remind us of is The Transformers’ Bumblebee.

194 MPH Dodge Challenger “Road Runner Superbird”
The 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird was an amazing road car when it was built and continues to be very collectible to this day. But with prices for the classic vehicle well into the six-digit range, few can afford to keep one in the garage let alone take one out for a drag race.

Rallycross VW Beetle Gets 600+ Horsepower

Rallycross VW Beetle Gets 600+ Horsepower
The very first Volkswagen Beetle had only 25 horsepower, so it’s pretty incredible to think that there’s now a bug that has 30 times that much power raging behind its driver. This very special Global Rallycross (GRC) Beetle only has a 2.0-liter
