Super-Cool Amphibious Russian Vehicle Looks Like It Was Drawn By a Five-Year-Old

THIS LOOKS LIKE SO MUCH FUN.On a recent trip to an off-road park in Michigan, 95octane writer Paul Strauss spotted this crazy vehicle:Image credit: 95octane I love this thing because it looks like something a five-year-old drew.

Buckle up, folks, strange story ahead. I'm at the Palm Beach International Raceway, whipping around the track in this thing:That's Lexus' LC 500, a performance coupe with a 5-liter V8 engine that cranks out 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. I can get it up to about 115 miles per hour before I have to slow down to avoid colliding with the car in front of me.

Remembering The Mod Top: Amazing Flower Powered Top Car Designs From The 1960s And 1970s

Back around 1966, Sixties counter-culture iconography was being injected into the everyday, infusing society with a collision of postmodern DayGlo colors, earth tones and psychedelically styled designs.

A Test Drive, and the Design Story Behind Range Rover's Most Unusual Vehicle

SoHo is one of New York City's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods--and paradoxically, the best place in Manhattan to see every car design on Earth. On Lafayette, bland rideshare Toyotas share lanes with Teslas. On West Broadway's restaurant row, delivery trucks are wedged in with Lamborghinis, Ferraris, the odd Bugatti. The streets in between are the parking lot of the upper middle class, awash with everything else--primarily crossover SUVs of German and Japanese heritage, so numerous and si...

Our Favorite Design Features of the 2019 GMC Sierra

GMC's Sierra 1500 Denali is a top-of-the-line full-size pickup truck. It first caught our eye when GMC's designers came up with that crazy multifunctional tailgate. The truck isn't cheap; it's $67,000 and marketed as a luxury vehicle. Which begs the question: What is it like using this truck for actual work? I recently had the chance to find out, both because I now live on a farm and because GMC was willing to lend me the truck (as well as its more off-road minded stablemate, the Sierra 1500 AT4...
