They say there is no rest for the wicked. In this case, the wicked are represented by Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, who is always keeping us on our toes and who, in good spirit, just dropped a couple of renderings of a revised 008 Baja Dakar Buggy.

1990 Mercedes 250GD Wolf by Expedition Motor Company

1990 Mercedes 250GD Wolf by Expedition Motor Company

The aftermarket company has restored this ex-military vehicle with new glam, but the same engine and transmission

The G-Wagen started life being a military truck and was later offered to us civilians as a hardcore off-roader that was matched by vehicles like the Land Rover and the Land Cruiser. The G-Wagen that we know today is fast and powerful, but back in its early days, it was brute and tough. Expedition Motor Company got hold of a 1990 250GD and restored it to perfection. As the company puts it, this is the story of how a rough ex-military war machine becomes a work of art.

2022 Land Rover Defender Debuts With A V-8 Engine

2022 Land Rover Defender Debuts With A V-8 Engine

It also comes with new special models and trims, tech upgrades, and exterior enhancements

Land Rover resurrected the Defender moniker in a brand new avatar in 2019 after a three-year hiatus. It didn’t look as rugged and boxy as its predecessor, but it came loaded to the brim in terms of features and gizmos. Although it had everything that one would want from a premium off-roader, there was one glaring omission – the V-8 engine. Perhaps Land Rover was just testing waters when it launched the new Defender and wanted to keep something for later, or realized that the market is too competitive.

Either way, the good news is that the 2022 Defender has been introduced with eight-cylinders under the hood. Apart from this, it also comes with a few other tweaks here and there that have smoothened out some wrinkles.

This Porsche Cayenne Turbo Safari From Flat Six Is a True Off-Road Performance Machine

This Porsche Cayenne Turbo Safari From Flat Six Is a True Off-Road Performance Machine

We are simply getting so many Dakar vibes from this build

You don’t have to take our word for it that the first-gen Porsche Cayenne is a darn good off-roader without any aftermarket bits and bobs attached to it. YouTube is your friend here.

However, imagine what would a 2004 Cayenne be able to pull off on rough terrain if someone prepared it for such challenges. Oh, wait, it happened, because Canada’s Flat Six has built a Cayenne that’s bordering into motorsport territory - at least as far as looks go.

2021 Porsche 911 Dakar by Delta4x4

2021 Porsche 911 Dakar by Delta4x4

Will this be the closest thing to a modern-day 953 successor?

The Porsche 911 has been a capable performer for decades. Moreover, pound for pound, very few cars can match its on-road performance. At the same time, most 911 variants are perfectly good for daily use, which is why the rear-engine Porsche has been the epitome of a sports car that can be used on a daily basis. But what happens when you want to turn things to 11? What if you want to take your 911 away from its usual habitat that is the asphalt? There are more than a few specialists who can turn your 911 into an off-road adventure machine and the German tuner Delta4X4 has the latest offering on the market.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor

The third-gen Raptor has retained the same mill, but comes with a new suspension system, new exhaust system, and a lot of tech improvements

Six months after revealing the 2021 Ford F-150, Ford finally brought in the new Raptor as well. There was a lot of mulling around Ford introducing a V-8 to rival the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. But, Ford decided to keep the standard Raptor clear and announced a new Raptor R that will feature a V-8 and take on the cocky Ram 1500 TRX.

The 2021 model year marks the third generation of the F-150 Raptor, and Ford has come up with some significant changes. For starters, you can now have it with 37-inch tires from the factory, which was unheard of in this segment. Then there’s the new exhaust system to make it sound sweeter. But, will these changes push the price of this V-6-powered truck dangerously close to a better-accomplished, V-8-powered Ram 1500 TRX?

2021 Ares Design Defender Spec 1.2

The aftermarket company has beefed up its looks, added premium material inside the cabin, and plonked in a V-8 mill under the hood

Land Rover Defender is one of the most popular choices for tuners and aftermarket companies to show off their skills and creativity. This time, it’s Ares Designs’ turn to show off what it could make of this butch SUV. Called the Defender Spec 1.2, it comes with changes inside out. The exterior includes stuff like carbon fiber bodywork and a panoramic roof and the interior benefits from some luxurious touches. Even the four-cylinder engine is swapped in favor of a V-8 engine for that extra grunt and roar.

Chris Forsberg's 370Z Rally Car Tribute: Sideways Gravel Shreds!

Chris Forsberg’s 370Z Rally Car Tribute: Sideways Gravel Shreds!

That’s a nice way to honor your rally-racing elders

Believe it or not, Nissan is no stranger to rally racing. Back in 1996, the Japanese company raced at the Paris-Dakar Rally with a modded Terrano, albeit with zero success.

However, back in 1970, Nissan took a Datsun Bluebird 510 and made it into a rally car - dubbed the 1600SS - that won the East-African Safari Rally. One year after, in 1971, Nissan came back with a safari-style version of the 240Z. It, too, won the rally. That particular car is celebrated today with a one-off build based on the 370Z.

This custom 964-Gen Porsche 911 Will Probably Haunt Your Dreams In a Good Way

California-based Singer is known for doing impressive restoration work to classic Porsche 911s, but what it’s revealed today essentially takes the company to an all-new level. The 964-gen 911 you see here isn’t a 911 Safari, not by any means. It’s actually what Singer calls “The ACS.” If you’re not familiar with the name, ACS stands for All-Terrain Competition Study, and as you can see, Singer has turned this 911 into an ultimate off-road rally weapon.

The 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the Second Most Expensive Jeep Ever

How does $70,000+ sound for a stupid fast Wrangler?

Jeep is finally giving us a V-8-powered Wrangler, for the first time since the nameplate was introduced in 1987, but it will cost a pretty penny.

According to a recent leak, the 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 will start from around $75,000, which is a massive premium over the regular Rubicon and a sticker that puts it above the Grand Cherokee SRT.

This GMC Boulder Is How GM Can Take On the New Ford Bronco

If GM builds it, it could make life harder for the new Bronco and the Jeep Wrangler

Ford unleashed the new Bronco in all its glory earlier this year. It sure put the Jeep Wrangler on red alert, but other than that, it doesn’t really have any other competitor. Rendering artist Ryan Schlotthauer, however, has imagined the Boulder, a baby Hummer of sorts that has the potential to take on the Bronco and the Wrangler head-on. GM, can you just hire him already?
