The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 ($525,000) is the biggest, most rugged offroader Mercedes has ever produced. It features six wheels, a twin-turbocharged 5.5L AMG V8 cranking out 536hp, a seven-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. It’s not all rugged though, with an interior that features leather and Alcantara, sports seats, and other luxurious appointments. Just don’t expect to see too many of them — word has it there’s only going to be 20-30 built each year.
Team Vossen made a trip out to Los Angeles to shoot a visual of pro skateboarder, Nyjah Huston. Watch as Nyjah drives around his CLS63 and skates a few of his favorite locations in Southern California including Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory. The wheels on the CLS are 20″ Vossen VVS-CV4s.
Based out of Los Angeles, the watchmakers at Refined Hardware have set out to not only revive the American watch tradition but to create the tools for the modern industrialist. These made-to-order and limited edition pieces ($1285) are built for one individual at a time from unpolished American steel and aerospace titanium. Each watch is set on an alligator band and in a hand-laid and numbered carbon fiber box.
Ride along with Platinum Motorsport’s President Jack Keshishyan as he rolls around in a Rolls Royce Ghost in LA and talks about the lifestyle and car culture in Los Angeles. Platinum Motorsports are definitely trend setters in the game. Video was shot by Jake Janisse.
Check out Rick Ross and Stalley’s freestyle over A$AP Rocky’s “F*ckin’ Problems!”. Ross raps about bottle popping with a bunch of bad broads just like usual. But we love Stalley’s verse which he kicks off spittin’ about his fast car and the girl he lost.
This is the new
Chevy Volt Cadillac ELR which is set to be released in early 2014. It is a combination electric drive system and 1.4L gas engine which provides 207 horsepower and a driving range of 30 miles. The only thing that interests us about this car is that it comes stock with 20 inch wheels which is pretty large for a car this size. Do you think larger stock wheels are going to be come a trend in the near future?
Check out this video shot by AccuAir of Coastline Auto Sport’s build of their Audi “Air4″ in preparation for SEMA 2012.
If you’ve ever been to SEMA, you know the cruise is one of the best parts because you actually get to see the cars that are on display MOVING instead of sitting like statues. Obviously some of these rides are simply trailer queens but our friend Bryan Fuller wanted to make sure everyone knew his 2011 392 Challenger SRT8 was certainly not. At :23 in the video, you see Bryan’s custom Challenger come into the picture and even though the LVPD presence was heavy, it’s pretty clear something is about to go down. Bryan lays down some serious rubber getting the cheers from the crowd only to hear those cheers turn into boos shortly after when a motorcycle cop pulls him over. Worth the ticket? Definitely.
