The extravagant 122 foot super yacht from Strand Craft features; an Art Deco design, four large double staterooms, heads, reception, salon, and crew cabins. It is powered by two MTU 16V4000 engines at 4610HP and an optional 51000HP booster engine–equaling 14,000 horsepower! This stream lined ship can surpass speeds of 50 knots. The most unique part about this ship is that it comes with a handcrafted supercar (that has 880HP V12 twin turbo engine) and a garage to house it in the stern of the ship.

Arturo Alonso is the mastermind behind this reborn beauty. The 2009 Gullwing-America 300 SL Panamericana features a fiberglass-reinforced aluminum body on top of a powder-coated steel chassis. It will be powered by a Mercedes M-133-55 engine (370HP), the same 5.5-liter V8 in the supercharged SLR McLaren. A V6 option is also in the works. Owners will have their choice between a six-speed manual or a seven-ratio Speedtronic automatic transmission. Not to mention this car has all the modern amenities like air-conditioning and power steering. All of this could be your for about 200,000 euros. Image gallery and press release.

The tiny, turbo-charged Tramontana R–a joyride for two costing $495,000. The jet-fighter-esque twin-turbo-charged car is packed with 760 horses, and weighs in at 2,750 pounds. It can go from 0-100 kph in only 3.6 seconds, and 200 kph in just over 10seconds! I bet this could out-run the Batmobile (and just about any cop car). Read the rest of this entry »

Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, the 2009 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is the last car to be built under the Benz and McLaren partnership. Only 75 of these beautiful cars will be built, I’m sure most of them are spoken for. The Stirling Moss costs €750,000 (over $1,000,000)! It is powered by a 650-hp supercharged 5.5-liter V8 and a 5-speed automatic transmission. The car does NOT feature a roof or windscreen, however it is capable of doing speeds up to 217 mph and can reach 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. It does sport; “swing-wing” doors, an air brake, and a 2-piece tonneau cover that can cover just the passenger seat or the entire cockpit. I wonder what this car would cost once it becomes a collector. Photo Gallery and Press Release.

This concept was introduced at the EICMA Show in Milan. The minimalist design features; boxer engine, twin wavy disc brakes, two projector-style headlamps, and single-sided swingarm. I think the LO Rider would be an awesome addition to BMW’s (lack of) cruiser line. Photo Gallery.

Hamann fooled everyone who thought the Mercedes McLaren SLR couldn’t get any better. The supercharged 5.4-liter Hamann SLR Volcano gets a new; turbo pulley, custom exhaust manifolds, and tuned ECU to bring output up to 700 hp and 612 lb.-ft. of torque. Making it 9 mph faster than the original Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 Edition. As you can see the the Volcano has carbon fiber wings and side skirts, as well as 21-inches wheels. Somesay its ugly, but I love this car. I would like to race one of these on my zx-10r. I think Hamann should try their hand in tuning sport bikes! Video, gallery, and press release after the jump.
