2021 Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk Expedition by Chelsea Truck Company
Kahn Automobiles and Chelsea Truck Company have been produced many Jeep Wrangler iterations in the recent past, and yet every model seems quite different from the other. The latest Wrangler rendition is what the tuner calls the Black Hawk Expedition. It comes with a plethora of changes inside out that sets it apart from the other Wranglers in the crowd. Looks sweet, doesn’t it?
This $350,000 Ford Ranger with a Chevy Big Block is Not For The Faint-Hearted
Resto-mod operations are fun, but this one here is some next-level shiz. What started as a third-gen Ford Ranger has been converted into a $350,000 truck that can handle anything thrown at it. It comes with a ton of off-road equipment, massive tires, and a big-block Chevy mill. This build was posted on AutotopiaLA’s YouTube channel and comes from a California-based tuner, RJ Fabrication.
This Armoured Car From France Looks Like an Angered Crab and Moves Like One
There’s no dearth of military vehicles these days and each one comes loaded to the gills in terms of equipment. Well, let’s add one more vehicle to this list, coming from a company called Arquus. The company has come up with a light armored vehicle called the Scarabee and it comes with a hybrid powertrain, machine guns, and a crab-walk feature that we recently witnessed on the GMC Hummer EV as well. Pretty neat, huh?
2021 Hummer M1-R by Mil-Spec Automotive
Mil-Spec Automotive is back with another classic Hummer build. Called the M1-R Vision, the build comes with a snazzy exterior and interior, and a turbo V-8 that makes 500 horses. The Michigan-based tuner noted that while the truck has gone heavily under the knife, it has retained all the good stuff and taken out the bad. Yes, this is an extinct breed and Mil-Spec seems to have a good job, but is it worth spending over a quarter-million dollars on?
Porsche Gets Overly Sensitive, Protests Design of the Singer ACS
Since Singer Vehicle Design announced the ACS off-road 911 not that long ago, we have been sitting on our toes waiting for the final iteration to come out. As it turns out, we will have to show a little more bit of patience because there has been a hiccup related to the PORSCHE lettering stamped on the vehicle.
Land Rover May Try to Compete With The Mercedes-AMG G63
It seems like Land Rover is done testing the waters with the new Defender and gauging the customers’ opinions. The automaker recently unveiled the V-8 engine on the Defender, will be rolling out the Defender 130 within a couple of years, and has plans to develop a Defender-based pickup truck. As if Land Rover didn’t have a lot on its plate already, it plans to take on the Mercedes-AMG G63 with another iteration of the Defender that will most likely be built under the guidance of its recent acquisition, Bowler Motors.
This Angry-Looking Amphibious Tank Will Have You Begging For The Zombie Apocalypse
Amphibious vehicles have always garnered enough attention and there are already quite a few in the market today. It used to be for fun and small swims in the past, but amphibious vehicles now seem to have a bright future, thanks to companies like HighLand Systems which is building them for more than merry rides.
The Ukraine-based manufacturer has developed a mean-looking vehicle called Storm that is built as a “multi-role armored vehicle, designed for use in a wide range of specialist military and civil applications”. Now, if only we could have a zombie apocalypse so it could prove its mettle! Oh, wait. Did I say that out loud?

2021 Apocalypse Hellfire 6x6
There’s no way 6x6 trucks can sneak away without catching any attention. There are quite a few aftermarket 6x6 creations like the VelociRaptor and the Mammoth by Hennessey, Gladiator by So-Flo, and some 6x6s that are built from the scratch, like the Rezvani Hercules. While Rezvani may have taken a different approach, a company called Apocalypse Manufacturing has developed a 6x6 based on the Jeep Gladiator called the Hellfire. Apart from the six-wheel-drive layout, it comes with massive tires, an active suspension system, and a cabin filled with modern tech features. The asking price for this beast runs into six digits.
1990 Mercedes 250GD Wolf by Expedition Motor Company
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.

Chris Forsberg’s 370Z Rally Car Tribute: Sideways Gravel Shreds!
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.
Jay Leno Says The 1959 Ferret Armoured Scout Drives Like a Car
We’ve seen Jay Leno’s YouTube channel feature all sorts of vehicles of various shapes and sizes over the years. Somehow, we’re used to the man getting to drive every wheeled machine out there that’s destined for civilian use. That’s why seeing Leno next to a Ferret armored car just made our interest pique.
Singer ACS - The 964-Gen Porsche 911 Safari Of Your Dreams
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.
