At first glance, this may look like a genuine Ferrari 288 GTO, but it's actually a replica based on a 1993 Toyota MR2. It does not use the supercar's original 2.8L twin-turbo V8, but rather a 3.0L V6 engine, while featuring a full fiberglass body kit, refurbished 16" alloys wrapped in new tires, a stainless steel quad exhaust system, original 288 GTO rear lights, front driving lights as well as fog lights.

Winston Yeh's Rough Crafts is back at it again, and his latest project is perfect for cruising the streets of Gotham. Called the "Yard Built XSR700", it's based on the XSR700 and features an X2E fully adjustable remote control digital suspension, making it adjustable on the fly for tarmac riding or muddy terrains. He then designed a set of triple clamps that can run a set of YZF-R1 forks along with an R1 axle, brakes and wheels designed for the R1 front end. "The XSR was an amazing base to start with. I love the tubular frame of the 700, and the power to weight ratio is perfect for a motorcycle. With the newly designed shorter frame and detachable rear frame loop you really don't need to cut the frame to make a proper custom shape," said Winston.

When monster truck meets an amphibious car, you get the grenade-proof, 3.3-ton Aton Impulse Viking. Despite its monstrous stance, it's powered by an ample 1,770cc engine that generates 82 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 37 mph on land and 9.3 mph in the water. This beast can tackle 38° inclines, and its low center of mass give it 42° of sideways tilt before the chance of tipping over. Since it rides on giant balloon tires, the driver can adjust tire pressures at any time directly from the cabin. The suspension is also pneumatically adjustable to give you 10 inches more ground clearance when you need it, while lower tire pressures and bigger contact patches minimize ground pressure and environmental damage. One caveat: pricing starts at $200,000. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Other mods include: a Kawasaki fuel tank, Japanese 2-speed automatic transmission, a turbo swap that replaces the WRX original, and Buell brakes.
