If you’re looking for truly off-road capable vehicle that also happens to be crazy fast, there aren’t too many choices. But the Nikola Zero aims to change that, with a rugged all-terrain vehicle with an all-electric drivetrain that’s as powerful as many high-end sports cars.

The Bugatti Civic Is Both Unholy and Awesome

The Bugatti Civic Is Both Unholy and Awesome
There’s a very large ocean between a Honda Civic and a Bugatti Veyron. The Civic is a sub-$30,000, front-wheel drive car, with a 4-cylinder engine, and in most incarnations, less than 200 horsepower. On the other hand, pretty much every Veyron ever sold went for more than a $1.5
