Unlike its predecessor, the all-new Rezvani Beast X now makes 700-horsepower (200-horsepower increase), thanks to a twin-turbocharged (Borg Warner) 2.0L, 4-cylinder Honda engine, paired to a 6-speed manual transmission, good for a 0-60 time of 2.5-seconds; a sequential gearbox with paddle shifters is also available. Other upgrades on this $325,000 track monster include a new 10-way adjustable suspension system and revamped carbon fiber bodywork. Click here for more pictures.

Larry Medwig from Painesville, Ohio had an old tractor collecting dust. So, he decided to combine his passionate of motorcycles with his DIY know how, and build the aptly named "Rat Bike". It's made from several individual repurposed parts from old vehicles, including an International Harvester LB engine from a cement mixer, while the transmission is Crosley automobile sourced, David Bradley wheels, along with a pipe fitting-based frame / forks. The main body, however, is actually the recycled front of a Farmall Cub tractor. Click here to view more pictures. Continue reading for another video of the tractor bike and more information.
Game of Thrones fans can probably see where this vehicle got its looks, as Valyrian Steel is a fictional metal that was forged in the days of the Valyrian Freehold, and one of two things that can kill the White Walkers, the villains of this series. Henry Chang spent over 2,000-hours building this work of art from 304 and 316 stainless steel for this year's Burning Man event. It's not just a static sculpture, this 27-foot-long monster is powered by a 2015 Ford 5.0L Coyote engine. Continue reading for two more videos and information.

Weighing in at a mere 2,777-pounds, the Hyundai N 2025 is no longer just a concept, as it can now be viewed at the 2015 LA Auto Show. It's powered by the world's first mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell system and a 2.0 liter T-GDI engine, for a total combined power output of 871 HP (650 kW), with the dual fuel cell stacks providing 670 HP (500 kW), and the super capacitor system generating the additional 201 HP (150 kW) when braking, through energy regeneration.

Russell White, a car enthusiast from Texas, spent $100,000 building a custom street-legal "Rally Fighter" vehicle that can literally go anywhere, even to work. They started with the bare frame, supplied by Local Motors, and built the car to completion in just 30-days. "The engine is from a Corvette and the Camaro SS - it's got a 430 horsepower GM crank motor and 20 inches of travel suspension that allows for driving really fast in the desert. It has 420 foot pounds of torque, and passes all state emissions, comes with everything you need to install, run and get it on the road. The steering wheel is a Momo wheel, and the column is out of an F150," said White. Click here to view first image in today's viral picture gallery.

While it may appear to be a vehicle from TRON, this is just the futuristic Yamaha MT-10 motorcycle. It's powered by a 998cc CP4 crossplane engine that produces 165 horsepower and 75 lb-ft of torque, paired with a three-stage traction control system, slipper clutch and three riding modes, using Yamaha's "D-Mode" throttle mapping feature. The YZF-R1-derived race-developed suspension has been tuned to make it even easier to live with on the street, complete with 320mm dual front discs, 4-pot calipers as well as ABS for instant stopping power.

Called UR2, this sleeper of a Lamborghini Huracan is actually the world's fastest. The 2,300-horsepower beast, powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V10 engine, set a new standing half-mile world record (for street-legal cars) by achieving 238.6 mph in the half-mile pass. One other notable modification was swapping out the dual-clutch transmission for a much quicker sequential shifter. Continue reading for an earlier video of this beast, when it was just pushing 2100+ horsepower.
Livio De Marchi, a master craftsman from Italy, decided to make his own Ferrari F50 out of wood. He spent 5-months replicating everything from the mirrors to logo, and now, it shares the historic Venetian waterways with gondolas and water taxis. This watercraft weighs in at around 2,000-pounds, which is only slightly less than the real steel / aluminum F50. Since it's designed for water, this F50 is powered by a Yamaha boat engine rather than a V12. Click here to view the first image in this week's geek life gallery.

The Divergent Blade appears to be just another supercar at first glance, but once you find out the story behind this vehicle, you'll realize it's 3D-printed, and faster than a Ferrari 458 Italia to boot. Powered by a 700-horsepower bi-fuel engine (can be fueled with either petrol gasoline or compressed natural gas), it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2.2-seconds. To understand just how fast this is, a Ferrari 458 goes 0-60 mph in roughly 2.9 to 3 seconds. However, what really makes the 1400-pound supercar stand out is its modular, 3D-printed chassis that's printed from aluminum nodes and aerospace carbon fiber rods.
