Although it looks like a veritable hot rod, the Brimstone Quadracycle is claimed to be the world’s first hot rod quad simply because it has no roof and only the handlebar and seat to position it as something in between a car and anyone’s idea of a trike, but we would have to say that it redefines the concept of quad if we have to call it that way.

The company building it is called Brimstone Cycles and it is based in Bowling Green, Ohio. CEO Joe Skonecki says their aluminum Dart block engines displace from 427 to 455 cubic inches and produce from 300 to 750 horsepower. Using a GM 700R4 4speed Transmission and a Ford rear end, the thing confirms our suspicions about having plenty to do with cars. Future owners are offered the possibility to choose between different materials such as carbon fiber, Kevlar or aluminum for the hood and fenders.

Built entirely from performance parts made in the USA, the Brimstone Quadracycle can go from 0 to 60mph in 2.8 seconds and from 0 to 120mph in 6 seconds while still getting 15 to 30 miles per gallon, meaning that it is our favorite thing to get a ticket on.

4MC - the four-wheeled motorcycle

The 4MC is the creation of engineer and company director Nick Shotter, who got busy working on a traffic safe and efficient motorcycle after suffering a crash during his London currier days. Being practically an average-sized motorcycle rolling on four wheels instead of two, this four-wheeled vehicle retains the thrill and benefits of riding a machine that is fast, agile and very comfortable without presenting the same level of accident risk as on a classic motorcycle.

What you can see in the videos attached after the jump is a prototype performing both on a dry track and on a skid pan. Also, they show how this innovative motorcycle is much more stable when ridden through traffic and they do a quick Car vs 4MC test in tricky situations.

See the demo videos after the break.

Simply take a look at the picture gallery that we’ve came across while preparing to hit the sand dunes this weekend. Denise Milani is a Czech Republic native and a famous supermodel who has kept secret her “passion” for quads and sand dune riding for quite some time now.

To be totally honest, we have serious doubts that she even knows how to start the thing, but posing is a passion too, isn’t it? Check out the big bust picture gallery after the break.

There’s really no point in mounting a 137 HP, 1100cc motor on a mini quad, but we’re not trying to find a justification for the idea of these people because, quite frankly, there is none. We’re just trying to show what amazing things you can do with a spare motor, a mini quad chassis and go cart wheels. This transforms your regular boring four-wheeler into an uncontrollable blast that, despite the street rubber, is still perfectly able to spread some dust.

Lazareth’s four-wheeled blast that is ridden like a motorcycle and is best known as the amazing quad of Batman junior, the Wazuma , has a mind-blowing price of 198,900 euro (around $284,300).

There’s nothing quite like it on the market, so we’ll have to wait and see how many wealthy people are willing to pay that much on a 500 hp machine that features no safety system, such as ABS or traction control.

In the attempt to make it possible for vehicles to benefit of more power (sometimes in huge quantities) motorbike/trike makers end up adding an extra wheel, for more stability. But how do you call something that has four wheels, a 500 bhp BMW V12 engine that runs on bio-ethanol, and yet is rode like a veritable motorcycle?

Apparently, we will have to settle with talking about the Lazareth Wazuma as being a quad with French origins and an absolutely mind-blowing $284,000 price tag.

What we’re seeing here is a totally camouflaged Zero X motorcycle being ridden to hunting. The off-road model is brought back in the public eye after the launch of the Zero S , an electric urban commuter.

The reasons why the bike in this video is great for hunting and for nature lovers in general are more than obvious: it doesn’t pollute and doesn’t make any engine noise whatsoever so a skilled rider and hunter shouldn’t scare all the dears away.

See action footage after the jump.

This is apparently a world record attempt, one that definitely didn’t end up in the Guinness World Records. The ATV rider attempts to jump his ride over a padel boat, but touches the very top of it with the ATV’s front end, resulting into a disastrous crash.

Multifunctional products might be exactly what the kid in each one of us looks for when buying either an R/C car or a quad. The best of 3Z Scale’s Buldog R/C rider is that it combines fun with practicability in a way that we haven’t yet had the honor to see before. This remote controlled vehicle features a stadium truck body, but underneath which an 110cc four-stroke engine, automatic transmission, disc brakes, independent suspensions and aluminum wheels package is ready to keep things interesting with and especially without the rider on it.

The big size R/C can be piloted using a 2.4 GHz radio transmitter, but also as a fun all terrain vehicle. The handlebars are there simply because the Buldog can’t be remote controlled with the rider actually on it, but that’s what makes things interesting from our point of view. Being 4’2” long and weighing almost 200 pounds, this thing can provide a veritable off-road ride, but you better check it out for yourselves in the video attached after the jump.

WesllCorp have come up with a four wheel kit for motorcycles in an attempt to improve performance and implicit lap times without cutting in the pleasure that only two wheels can offer. They call it Wesll Suspension and it can be mounted both on street and off-road motorcycles. And not just any motorcycles. We’re talking about models such as the Honda CBR600RR (our favorite), Suzuki GSX-R1000 and Kawasaki ZX-10R, just to mention a few.

Featuring a maximum of 28 inches of travel, the unusual kit will transform any motorcycle into a quad. The four tires offer better grip which results into the ability to brake later before a corner and accelerate faster out of it.

Here’s a short demonstration video of the system mounted on a CBR600RR motorcycle.
