Watch A Scania Skip Truck and A Scania Grab Truck Gang Up On A Volvo Pump Truck On A Drag Strip

Watch A Scania Skip Truck and A Scania Grab Truck Gang Up On A Volvo Pump Truck On A Drag Strip

Three lorries giving their all in straight-line races is the dose of fun you need today!

The folks at Carwow organized a different type of race this time. They got hold of three big lorries (known as ‘Trucks’ Stateside, but we’ll stick to calling them lorries to avoid confusion) to compete against each other in a series of drag and rolling races, along with a brake test. They all do different kinds of stuff. One of them is a grab lorry, the other with a concrete pumping machine, and the final one a skip lorry. In the conventional races with cars, you can kind of guess which one is going to win. But, that’s not the case here and we don’t know which one to root for either!

Watch The Mercedes Unimog Conquer Everything That Comes In Its Way

Watch The Mercedes Unimog Conquer Everything That Comes In Its Way

The Unimog also holds the world record for the highest altitude reached by a four-wheeler!

Mercedes-Benz has a fairly rich experience in building vehicles that feel at home off road. No, I’m not about talking about the G-Class. The company has many other vehicles that are more suited to such trails, and the Unimog you see here is one of them. It is an all-terrain truck that the company has been building for many decades now. Mat Watson of Carwow and Mat Watson Cars recently took a ride in one of them at the company’s off-roading facility in Germany. Is this one of the best off-road trucks that are in production today?

You'll Probably Love Watching These Trucks Smash Into Anti-Terrorist Barriers

You’ll Probably Love Watching These Trucks Smash Into Anti-Terrorist Barriers

Sometimes, you have to know the battles you know you’ll win

There’s nothing like crashes with surprising results that get our nerves flowing. That’s especially true when we’re dealing with trucks crashing into barriers, specifically those of the anti-terrorism kind. These crashes are spectacular, if not a little scary.

This video stretches almost three-and-a-half minutes and it’s full of metal on metal crime. Give it a watch and see what happens when terrorists think that they can just run over these barriers. Spoiler alert: these barriers have zero give.

Someone is Selling a 2003 Ferrari 360 Limo And We Can Almost Smell the Lawsuit

Someone is Selling a 2003 Ferrari 360 Limo And We Can Almost Smell the Lawsuit

This has "long and drawn-out saga" written all over it

Are you interested in a Ferrari 360 Moderna that’s not really a Ferrari 360 Modena anymore? If you are, then you might find this particular ride interesting…or perplexing, depending on what kind of mood you’re in as you’re reading this. This is a Ferrari 360 Modena limousine. There are no typos in that previous sentence. It really is a limousine, though it didn’t start as one. But that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is that it’s for sale in Australia, and you have the opportunity to buy it provided you’re willing to spend on it. But before you do, there is one caveat. Ferrari doesn’t take too kindly to its cars getting bastardized to this extent. The Italian automaker has been known to be litigious in circumstances like this, so before you plop down your hard-earned money for the 360 Modena limousine, you might want to make sure that everything about the car is on the up-and-up.

1937 Mount Rainier Kenworth Tour Bus by Legacy Classic Trucks

This 83-year old restored rolling piece of history costs over half-a-million dollars!

Idaho-based Legacy Classic Trucks had taken up a unique restoration project recently. The company laid its hands on a 1937 tour bus that served at the Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state. Vintage tour buses are a popular sight at tourist spots, so retaining the essence of this bus was the most important thing about this restoration. Legacy Classic Trucks has managed to do it and it looks stunning.

However, it is priced exorbitantly high. The company is selling this restored, bespoke bus for over half-a-million dollars. Well, I’d rather buy a ticket and take a ride in it if it were to be deployed at a tourist site than buy it!

This Cabless Truck Concept From Scania Is Just Weird

This Cabless Truck Concept From Scania Is Just Weird

It’s also pretty awesome once you realize that its unusual shape is highly functional

The Scania AXL Concept was started from a blank sheet of paper. Scania’s designers and engineers, however, had a clear task to abide by, though: the cabin had to be driverless. Which kind of contradicted Scania’s previous projects, where the cabin had to be wrapped around the driver, with all the adjacent aspects like safety and comfort. Oh, and to make things even more complicated, the design team was given one year to come up with a viable prototype. Did we mention it had to drive itself as well?

President Donald Trump's New Presidential Cadillac Limo "Beast" is Finally in Service

President Donald Trump’s New Presidential Cadillac Limo "Beast" is Finally in Service

What, no orange paint job?

The new presidential limousine, loosely similar in appearance to the Cadillac CT6, is finally in service and was first seen in public in New York earlier this week where the UN General Assembly gathered. It is the first new presidential limousine in almost a decade.

No other president’s means of transportation is as famous as that of the president of the United States. Commonly known as ’The Beast’. The introduction of the automobile as the president’s means of transportation didn’t happen right away, though, the first president to have a fleet being William Howard Taft in the early part of the last century.

As time went by, the limousines grew in both size and weight when it was decided that bulletproof glass and bodywork is a necessity. Nowadays, the presidential limousines, codenamed ’Stagecoach’, run on truck underpinnings and their specifications are secret.

The fact that President Donald Trump was getting a new limousine was, though, an open secret with the car having been seen testing in camouflage back in April. The previous state car, which debuted back in 2009 under President Barack Obama, was also a Cadillac-badged vehicle.

Keep reading to find out more about President Trump’s new limo.
