It's the four-wheel-drive diesel-electric love child of a #volkswagen   hippie van and the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.
Exactly 50 years ago, Ken Kesey, that irascible chronicler of the US counterculture, drew a line in the sand: you were either “on the bus” or “off the bus”. Suffice it to say, Eduardo Galvani would fall in the former group.

The #NorthCarolina -made Organic Transit ELF the solar-electric-pedal-powered car of tomorrow.
In a perfect world, someone would invent a small personal vehicle that runs on nothing but sunshine and calories – and carries a week's worth of groceries, for good measure.

"The #LandRover #Defender, conceived with agrarian intentions, is one of those vehicles whose legend has, in the decades since its entrance, far surpassed its abilities – which, admittedly, are not inconsiderable."
Back in October, even as the motoring press buzzed about the abilities of the Defender Electric research vehicle, Land Rover quietly conceded that the end credits were soon to roll for its long-serving and immeasurably accomplished utility vehicle.

"There is more to the #XJR than its prodigious capacity for speed or its sumptuous cabin. This charismatic #Jaguar brings something entirely new and irresistible to a very serious class of cars: fun."
The world is hardly bereft of opulent, expensive, seriously fast sedans. Audi has its 520-horsepower S8 and BMW has the 540hp Alpina B7, and Mercedes-Benz, which has made such cars a staple of its business back to the vaunted 300SEL 6.3 of 1968, is poised to unleash the 577hp S63 AMG 4Matic.

Practically perfect in every way.
On the heels of its 1962 Volkswagen Camper Van replica, Danish brickmaker Lego has unveiled the new Mini Cooper Mk VII set. Brimming with accurate details and a few surprises, the 9-inch-long car is an impressive (and adorable) facsimile of Sir Alec Issigonis' 10-foot-long classic. Just don't call it a toy.

#Racing  at the speed of gravity.

"Maybe no sedan south of a $200,000 Aston Martin Rapide makes such an event of a corner." #cadillac
Pity the performance sedan.
