Toyota has been known for its off-roading roots as well as rugged reliability, and their new TRD-Sport Trailer is definitely no slouch. This ‘basecamp’ vehicle lets overlanding explorers quickly set up camp and then continue on their remote adventure just about anywhere in the world. The inspiration for this occurred when Bob Kupina, Senior Program Manager, Toyota Motor North America Research and Development, saw a trailer made from a Toyota Tacoma at the Overland Expo WEST in Flagstaff, Arizona.

What happens when the Tesla Cybertruck meets the Toyota GR Supra and Karlmann King? You get the Cyber Supra of course. Even though the exterior might look sporty, it’s actually built atop a Ford F-550 chassis, complete with bullet-resistant body panels. As for the engine, customers can either opt for a 6.8-liter V-10 from the F-550 or possibly an all-electric drivetrain from Elon Musk’s company. The interior is completely bespoke, so it will look nothing like the the Cybertruck or Supra.
Designed by Jaebum Choi, the futuristic Nissan GT-R (X) 2050 has a design unlike any other supercar you’ve probably seen. It has a single-seat and measures just 2-feet tall by 10-feet long. Now the unique part is that the driver is required to lay flat, as they would basically be wearing the vehicle like an extension of their body. They’ll also need to wear a virtual reality helmet with Nissan’s own Brain-to-Vehicle technology that syncs to a camera system its unique steering controls require.
This isn’t Jaguar’s first foray into the digital world of video games, and their latest entry is definitely no slouch. Introducing the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV. Powered by four electric motors that generate a combined 1,877 horsepower and 2,478 pound-feet of torque, which means it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a mere 1.65 seconds, while topping out at 255 mph. Just how large is this beast? An impressive 218.1 inches long with a 107 inch wheelbase.
Matt Denton has built a real-life LEGO go-kart that you can actually drive, and unlike his first creation, this one has an electronic differential. As you might have guessed, none of these pieces are from official LEGO sets, but rather Matt used a 3D printer to fabricate them. The long beams that make up the frame of the vehicle weren’t too difficult to print, but the axle piece for the steering column had to be printed in two parts due to their length.
