Ferrari 458 Italia? Nope, Toyota Celica Italia

Ferrari 458 Italia? Nope, Toyota Celica Italia
Of all of the cars I’ve ever driven – and I’ve driven quite a few – my favorite is still the Ferrari 458 Italia. It just offered the right combination of power, oversteer, and drop dead looks that are everything you want in an Italian sportscar.

ARES X-RAID Reinvents the Mercedes G-Class SUV

ARES X-RAID Reinvents the Mercedes G-Class SUV
The boxy Mercedes-Benz G-Class has an extremely distinctive look, but the guys at Modena, Italy coachbuilder ARES Design have their own vision for the rugged and powerful 4×4. Gone are the sharp, squared-off edges – replaced with rounded corners, fat wheel arches, and dramatic, distinctive styling that will have everyone scratching their heads in wonder as it drives by. The X-RAID starts out as a Mercedes AMG G63, but looks like a completely different – and much more awesome vehicle at the hands of ARES.

This Double-Wide Jeep Wrangler Doesn’t Fit in a Lane
I’ve seen plenty of wide-body and wide-track suspension kits, designed to give cars greater stability and room for wider tires, but these guys took vehicle widening to a whole new level. This crazy custom Jeep Wrangler turned up a few years ago in Morocco, and it’s completely insane.

Land Rover Turns Jamie Oliver’s Discovery into a Kitchen on Wheels

Land Rover Turns Jamie Oliver’s Discovery into a Kitchen on Wheels
If you’re a famous celebrity chef, you’re running around all the time and probably don’t get to spend nearly as much time in the kitchen as you once did. For that reason, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations decided to do something special for chef Jamie Oliver, and built him an awesome kitchen on wheels, based on the latest generation Land Rover Discovery. Other than the wacky wheel covers (which I’ll get to in a minute), it looks very much like any other Disco at first glance, but once you dig deeper, you’ll see that it’s got lots of fun tricks up its sleeves. Among its upgrades are a slow cooker under the hood, and a huge slide-out work surface with gas burners, a sink, and a 40″ flat screen TV on the end.

Tricked-out 1990 Land Rover Defender 110 for Sale

Tricked-out 1990 Land Rover Defender 110 for Sale
It’s been quite some time since the Land Rover Defender was sold here in the US. In fact, it was sold only from 1993 to 1997 due to ever-changing safety regulations. I’m hopeful that the Defender will be relaunched in the next couple of years, but there’s nothing quite like the rugged, boxy shape of a classic Defender. If I had the $99,000 to spare, I’d so run down to Bentley Gold Coast dealership here in Chicago and plunk down my money for this beauty, a 1990 Defender (presumably imported) that’s been loaded to the hilt. This awesome red and black Defender looks as good as new too, and appears to have been given the full Defender 110 treatment by East Coast Defender too.
