Maybach is back. After taking some time off, the popular luxury edition from Mercedes-Benz has returned with an all-new S Class. The Mercedes Maybach S600 once again makes shotgun a thing of the past with their super cozy backseat space. Extra long leg room, flat screen TVs, and for some reason, an intercom system to communicate with the driver because you might hate actually interacting with people. Look for these to release in the early-goings of 2015.
The ’67 GT500, also known as Eleanor, is probably the best-looking in the Shelby series, but the all-new Shelby GT350 is giving it a run for it’s money.

The car will be packing a 5.2 liter V8 that’s pumping out over 500 horsepower. No word on availability just yet, so stay tuned.

We’ve seen a couple real-life Batmobiles before, but never one quite like this. The main difference is the legality of the vehicle. As Zac explains, he can take this to go get groceries down the street if he wants to. And well, that’s pretty damn sweet. He’s had offers on the vehicle from all over the world, but instead has decided to use the Batmobile to team up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to put smiles on the faces of terminally-ill children. Seems like a great dude.
Sporting rifle maker, Holland & Holland has teamed up with Range Rover to make their most luxurious version to date. The very limited Holland & Holland edition Range costs just a tad over $285,000. To give the backseat a little more leg room, this edition is actually stretched a tad longer than normal Range Rovers. Their plan is to only produce about 40 of these per year.
Inspired by the James Bond submarine Lotus, this Submarine Sports Car has the capability of travel via land & water. The interior is impervious to both fresh & salt water. It has seats for two and will travel up to 80 miles on land and three hours underwater after a four hour battery charge. The biggest downfall, it costs $2 million. Check it out here.
It doesn’t seem like a car that can go from 0-60 in an insane 2.9 seconds gets up to 22 mpg. This is the McLaren 650S slated to release here soon, and it’s one dynamic beast of a car.

One of the most popular scooters on the market is without a doubt the Honda Ruckus.

Here’s the final result, and be sure to watch the video for a behind-the-scenes look at the design process.
Tyler Shields is the artist behind this artistic video. The short film features a guy & his female accomplice in the desert pouring gasoline all-over this Rolls-Royce silver shadow, followed by them setting it on fire. Art or just a pretty cool video? You tell me.
I can’t even begin to imagine how long this took. Artist, Allison LaValley, covered up the scratches on her husbands GT-R with a sharpie design since he had plans to repaint the car soon anyways. Well, after she was done doing her magic, her husband liked it so much he told her to go crazy on the rest of the car. The result is pretty dope.
