If you've always wanted a Ferrari, and currently own a Mercedes SL500 (R320), you're in luck, as DNA West Coast specializes in transforming the latter into a surprisingly decent-looking California replica. The conversion cost you around $59,999, but just $37,300 if you already have a donor car.

Nissan Juke NISMO RS

This one-of-a-kind Nissan Juke NISMO RS was spotted in Lapland, Sweden sporting tank treads, perfect for the snowy winter landscape there. The company says that it's capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph), and thanks to its variable transmission, standard gearing shouldn't be an issue since having such a transmission makes it more similar to standard cars rather than snowmobiles.

We've featured Eddie Zarick's work before, but now he's outdone himself with the Playbox, the world's first PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hybrid laptop. Best of all, it includes a large 22-inch display so even multiplayer games should be enjoyable. Zarick only encountered one issue, detailed here: "The only issue I had with this unit was the PS4 capacitive Power button will not work consistently. I have determined it has something to do with interference with the XBOX ONE being so close. Luckily it turns on perfectly fine using the PS4 controller, and still will turn on with the button if you have patience." Continue reading for more pictures and information.
