It comes with boards, fishing rods, a tent and a solar-powered shower.
We hope it leads to a production car.
Better yet, a production version will follow.
It's the first car developed together by Nissan and Italdesign.
The spaceship takes flight
Following in the footsteps of BMW's custom M3 pickup trucks, engineers at Honda's Civic hatchback factory in the U.K. built their own high-performance pickup out of a 2018 Honda Civic Type R. The car is just as absurd as you would hope. The roof from behind the B-pillars has been chopped out to create a truck bed, one filled with diamond-pattern steel. The engineers managed to retain the curves of the original sheet metal, and shaped the tops of the bed sides to mirror them.
You won't see this at dealers anytime soon.
We have very few details on the BMW iNext project. The new EV is set to go on sale in 2021, will have 435 miles of range and self-driving technology. BMW has described the vehicle as its "technology flagship," so expect every last bit of tech the German automaker has to be packed inside. Still, we don't even know what the new model will look like. It could be a sedan, hatchback or crossover. Each seems as equally likely as the other. Well, we will soon see the iNext — at least an early con
Nissan is throwing another multi-day overlanding bash ahead of the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, this week. Last year, the carmaker debuted the Titan Project Basecamp overlanding pickup at the expo. This year — even though Nissan's event is called "Titan Adventure" — Nissan went with a survivalist SUV called the Armada Mountain Patrol. Other than the fact that you're more likely to see a feral Martha Stewart in the deep woods eating canned rations before you'd see a bugge
Last month, Nissan announced it was working on a custom overlanding version of its largest SUV. Dubbed the Nissan Armada Mountain Patrol, it's a follow-up to last year's Nissan Titan XD Project Basecamp and the Nissan Armada Snow Patrol we drove earlier this year. Until now, all we've seen are early renderings, but the automaker has released a shadowy teaser image just ahead of the Mountain Patrol's full reveal tonight in Arizona.
With Solo, the latest Star Wars film, on the way, it was only a matter of time before we saw yet another custom Nissan made to look like a starship from the series. And for a film about Han Solo, the only logical ship to recreate was Solo's famous Millennium Falcon. It's built in the same impressive fashion as past custom Nissans, even if the proportions are a little odd translated to a car. This Rogue features the key exterior components of Solo's ship, from a panel over the windshield to repli
Wörthersee — the premier Volkswagen GTI meetup in the world — starts in just a few days in a small town in Austria. The event has been embraced by both Volkswagen and its fans. We usually end up seeing some pretty sweet concept cars like a Porsche-powered VW Type 2 or the bonkers mid-engine VW GTI W12. This year, we'll see the new VW Golf GTI TCR Prototype, a near-production ready hot hatch that goes into production this fall.
At Geneva, the Hong Kong-based Hybrid Kinetic Group unveiled the Pininfarina-designed HK GT, which is a gullwing door luxury EV on an aluminum chassis. Now, a month later at the Beijing show, two other Pininfarina concepts join the HK GT.
Honda's exhibition at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show includes the Everus EV concept. The production version of the Everus EV will be a China-only electric vehicle, and it will be marketed under its own brand.
Mercedes has officially unveiled its Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury concept following a leak of most of the details last week. As we learned last week, the unusual looking sedan-SUV crossbreed is fully electric with four motors producing a whopping 750 horsepower. Combined with an 80 kWh battery, Mercedes estimates it should have a range of over 200 miles on the European test cycle. It also can handle extremely fast charging from DC chargers outputting 350 kW. Mercedes claims this allows it to
We need to add another high-tech 18-wheeler entry to the growing list of players at the table: Shell collaborated with AirFlow Truck Company the truck you see above, dubbed Starship. The tractor-trailer combo isn't the wildest rival in the bunch, but it features the best of current technology aided by a host of major and minor tweaks from stem to stern. Shell considers the the Class 8 Truck equivalent of the Project M T25 city car it worked on with legendary English designer Gordon Murray.
Just last month, we learned that the new all-electric BMW iX3 crossover would debut soon at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. On Friday, BMW finally revealed a short teaser video on Twitter, showing off a new take on the company's iconic grille design. Though next week's car may simply be a concept, it's the first we've seen of the German automaker's answer to the Jaguar i-Pace and upcoming Audi E-Tron.
Just days ago, we posted the interior teaser image Mercedes-Maybach released of its Ultimate Luxury concept due to be presented at the Beijing Motor Show. Now photos of the entire vehicle, inside and out, have leaked online courtesy of the manufacturer.
