Mercedes-Benz Tiny Home

Auto enthusiast and broadcast systems engineer Jack Richens wanted his own tiny home, but one that could go anywhere without requiring it be towed. So, he purchased a used 2012 Mercedes Benz Sprinter for $10,000, and spent another $8,500 converting it into a home on wheels. Featuring sleeping pods, a kitchenette set with a small dining / seating area, and plenty of storage space underneath for shoes. "There really weren't any van conversions available that suited our requirements. We saw countless vans that looked amazing but were simply not practical. The whole thing about building your own van is that you can tailor it precisely to your requirements and taste. We built a van for a family of four to have adventures in and the main remit was that, if necessary, we could spend days on end inside the van with two hyper kids and still enjoy ourselves," said Richens.

Ford Bronco Buggy

When is a Ford Bronco not just something you drive around town, and occasionally off the beaten path? When it gets customized to compete in the 2017 King of the Hammers off-road race with Vaughn Gittin Jr. at the wheel. A modified shell was dropped onto a Jimmy's 4x4 off-road chassis, complete with a Ford Performance 427 V8 that generates 600-horsepower.

Smallest SNES

Raspberry Pi can be used to build many things, including the world's smallest SNES, or at least a miniature device that looks like one. Gaming enthusiast Hugo doris hand-crafted the clay shell for his SNES Micro, which consists of a Raspberry Pi Zero board and a USB hub. The finished produce runs an SNES emulator that could play just about any NES game as well. Unfortunately, you won't be able to plug in any of the original controllers, which is understandable due to the original slots being larger than the micro console itself, but I'm sure you'll find plenty of worthy alternatives.

Rolls-Royce Ratrod

A team of mechanics have managed to transform a classic Rolls-Royce that was once owned by eccentric British aristocrat, Lord Tredegar, into the Rolls-Royce Rat Rod. Drawing inspiration from traditional rat rods, this machine has been fitted with a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 engine, enabling it to hit crazy speeds. In all, it took the crew three months to complete, with the frame being partially made out of aluminum, giving the rat rod a chrome-like finish. "Me, Jesse and Michael have driven the car and it's quite scary to actually put your foot down on a car that has an aluminum frame, you don't want to twist it. The car is very light, it weighs under a tonne. The power to weight ratio is something like a Ferrari, it's unbelievable. You put your foot down and it's actually quite scary because this thing is a power house," said mechanic Sam Hard, 29, from Farnham, Hampshire.
