Powered by a Jeep Wrangler-sourced 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine, the 2019 Rezvani Tank is as tough as it looks.

The Fast & Furious franchise has been known for its outlandish vehicles, especially the Toyota Supra that late actor Paul Walker made famous, and that has inspired custom vehicle mashups, like this one.

Rain Prisk Design is back at it again, and their latest creation is this Lamborghini Urus pickup truck concept, which despite its odd looks, might actually have a market.
