Honda City Turbo Folding Motorcycle

This may look like an old hatchback, but take a closer look at the Honda City Turbo, and you'll discover a tiny Honda Motocompo scooter inside. The hot hatch was produced between September 1982 and 1986, based on the naturally aspirated Honda City AA, and one of the few non-kei Honda cars to be equipped with a 100-hp turbocharged engine. However, the Motocompo motorcycle was a $360 option, complete with a 49cc, 2.5 hp engine. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and information.

Ariel Atom 4

When you combine a go-kart with the powerplant of a Honda Civic Type R, the Ariel Atom 4 is the result. Unlike the Ariel Atom 3.5R (video above), it features a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with a custom Engine Control Unit (ECU), mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, that generates 315 hp, which enables the lightweight vehicle to go from 0-62mph in an eye-watering 2.8 seconds, while topping out at 162mph.

Honda Civic Type R Pickup

This isn't a render, but rather a real vehicle that was built by Honda's Product Engineering department in the UK and codenamed "Project P". It's essentially a pre-production version of the Honda Civic Type R, which had its C-pillars and roof replacedwith a roll bar. The rear seats and boot have also been completely removed to make room for the open bed, while there's still room for two inside. Exterior wise, the Project P keeps the iconic body kit as well as the rear wing. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Ford Model A S2000

Auto enthusiast James Schwartz came across a rendering (bottom image) by Aaron Beck and decided to make that vehicle a reality, and thus this Franken-car was born. He began with a Ford Model A cab, and started some heavy metal fabrication, which included a six inch chop and shortened grill. Next, a custom frame was made from square tubing with a C-notch in the rear to allow the car sit as low as possible. Last, but not least, an F20C engine and six-speed transmission was taken out of a donor S2000. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Tesla Honda Accord

Unless your 1981 Honda Accord has some major modifications, it probably can't do 0-60 in 2.7-seconds, that is unless...you're talking about Jim Belosic's vehicle. He took the drivetrain of a Tesla Model S P85, and installed it in his Accord, with the result being a 536-horsepower frankencar called the Teslonda. For the setup to work, Jim had to source a 436-pound battery pack from a Chevrolet Volt for the engine bay. Since the Model S drivetrain was rear-wheel-drive, he also had to source the front steering and suspension parts from Ford models between 1928 and 1941.

Mean Mower MK2


Approximately 4-years ago, Honda revealed the world's fastest lawn mower, called the Mean Mower, and it set a Guinness World Record for the fastest speed reached by a lawn mower. Now, they are set to debut its successor, the Mean Mower Mk2. It's now powered by a CBR1000RR Fireblade motorcycle engine that generates 192 horsepower, enabling it to hit a top speed of 134 mph, which 18 mph faster than its predecessor. How fast is it from 0-60 mph? Well, the first-generation model could hit 60 mph in a mere 4.0-seconds, so we could be looking a sub 4.0-second times for the Mk2.
