The Ford GT90, which was unveiled at the 1995 Detroit Auto Show, was built as a secret project by a small engineering team over six months, sharing many components from the Jaguar XJ220. Why? Ford owned Jaguar at the time, so it made sense to develop a supercar based on the iconic XJ220. What if they developed an all-electric or hybrid successor to the GT90? It might look something like the Dystopia by industrial designer Antoine Crobe. Read more for a video and additional pictures.

Some may already know that zombies are sensitive to light, and simply shining your flashlight in their direction causes them to shrink away. In case of a zombie apocalypse, you’ll probably want a vehicle with plenty of lights, or at least as a backup should things go wrong. That’s where this heavily modified Ford F-250 comes in, as it features 18 wide LED light bars and a minimum of 34 smaller LED spotlights. Read more for another picture and a bonus video.

Sure, the 1,020-horsepower Tesla Model S Plaid is the quickest vehicle yet from the company, but being able to do 0-60 mph in 1.9-seconds may not be enough when taking on an 1,100-horsepower Palm Beach Dyno Shelby GT500 in the quarter mile. These two vehicles faced off at the two vehicles facing off twice at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois. The results of the two races with rolling starts may surprise you.

At first glance, this vehicle looks like a real 1969 Ford Mustang, but upon closer inspection, you still may not realize it’s just a heavily modified 2009 Hyundai Accent. Since the latter isn’t the same size as the original muscle car, the proportions are slightly off, especially its width, but we’re certain that this will fool most non automobile enthusiasts on the road. Unfortunately, it probably doesn’t have a Windsor V8 engine. Read more for a short video and additional pictures.
It’s true, the 1958 Ford Nucleon was supposed to be a nuclear-powered car, which quite surprisingly, is just one of a handful of such designs during the 1950s and 60s. That’s right, there would have been no internal-combustion engine, but instead a small nuclear reactor in the rear of the vehicle, based on the assumption that this would one day be possible by reducing its size.
