Just Disregard The Side Mirrors. Seriously!

As usual, the coolest Ford Motor Company products get saved for alternative markets like Australia and once again, Europe. With that complaint out of the way, please enjoy these preview photos of the stunning Ford Kuga, which looks heavily based off of those Mazda CX-Series crossovers. That's a good thing, by the way.

This is probably a little closer to how the final product will look, because all those boring "safety factors" have to be taken into account when the production version's design is finalized and approved. You know what though? Screw safety! We want the original space shuttle design with those massive 22" wheels and Z-rated Pirelli tires. Guess we'll just continue to stare at the hot little Infiniti FX for now...

Back to our rant! It's funny how we Americans get stuck with Ford's block-like SUV models, which are just beginning to show signs of a forward-thinking design philosophy (read: the new Ford Edge) while those lucky Europeans have a hard-top Ford convertible and now this futuristic, sporty looking thing. What gives?! more...

Cute Picture Of The Day

Even though the Lamborghini Murcielago is not as technically advanced as most Ferrari models, you just have to admit the damn thing looks sexy. While most cars have a "good angle" and a "bad angle," that Murcielago design always steals your attention regardless of how it's parked; every angle is simply amazing. Funny how the MINI Cooper looks like an SUV parked next to the metallic orange wonder!

Here you can see that the heat from the rear-mounted V12 engine really DOES get exhausted out that middle port (see half-melted plastic license plate frame). We bet lots of owners must be nervous that the bumper is going to melt too!

The Invisible Rope Trick Is AWESOME!

The invisible rope trick is an easy, affordable way to cause traffic on any one-way road. Just let a friend do it so YOU don't go to jail, because we're pretty sure there's some laws out there that forbid this sort of entertainment.

100% Guaranteed To Make You Laugh

Welcome back from the weekend! This non-automotive video clip will immediately cheer you up, make you laugh and possibly have a good Monday. Well ok, there is no such thing as a "good Monday," but this will make it come close!

Pickles and Triscuits for lunch can make those models lose their balance!

Our Heroine Is Back In Action
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

It's not too often that we get to hear Britney Spears cuss out them paparazzi, but when she does, all the soap in the world isn't enough to clean out her mouth. She's even got a slight sense of humor when she's pissed. CLICK HERE to watch the video (new window). Be sure to take note of the automobiles the paparazzi are driving; they've got Cadillacs, Mercedes-Benz' and even those souped-up Jeep SRT8's. Taking photos of Britney Spears seems to pay really well!

Music Still Makes Some People Rich?

Scott Storch -- a music producer we never heard of -- owns all these cars and more. We know the American dream is to be successful, but damn! He's got that Bugatti that costs over $1,000,000 and then he's got basically EVERY other car that would be at the top of any most-wanted list regardless of the brand you like. Well good for you Scott, good for you... we're not jealous at all. Yeah right. We'd be his chauffeur, maid and nanny if he needs any of those positions filled! more...

The SLR Cost Too Much! So...

Mercedes-Benz will be going forward with a successor to the SLR, but not with the support of McLaren. The next version will be much more downscale and likely to cost around $200,000. Tentatively named the Mercedes-Benz SLC AMG, the car will share similar design cues to the SLR, but with a lot less carbon fiber both on the inside and out. On a more interesting note, HWA will be Mercedes' main partner in the new design venture; they are kind-of-sort-of related to Mercedes and AMG, so we expect these cooperative links to result in a stunning automobile. more...

Beautiful

Behold! This is the gorgeous Ferrari F430 Scuderia, the next special edition model from our favorite Italian car designer. Like all Ferrari's, we don't have much more to say since the pictures do all the talking, but the color combination is sweet. more...

Clay Aiken Fans Are Crazy Dedicated!

We have nothing bad to say about Clay Aiken or his fans (known as "Claymates"), the latter of which will hunt down and destroy anybody who dares speak negatively about their supreme leader. However, these vanity plates are just too much! Aren't there like supposed to be obscenity laws in Pennsylvania or something?

Classy As Usual
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

Britney Spears really is our favorite star. Who else can look so exquisite while wearing a hot pink wig, drinking a 600-calorie Starbucks Frappuccino and driving their Mercedes-Benz CLK convertible? Britney Spears, that's who!

Somebody Was Bored!

Lauren is a final year graduate in the School of Art and Design at Bath Spa University, which is located in England. For her Graduate Exhibition, she presented a full-scale, wool-knitted version of a Ferrari. The loose combination of a Testarossa and a 355, complete with windshield wipers, side mirrors, low profile tires and the famous prancing horse logo, was knitted in glorious Ferrari red.

Ok, so we already know this busy girl's Saturday nights will be free for the next seven years, but the damn thing turned out pretty nice.

Already Making Flashy Entrances

Freshly imported from abroad, Posh, David Beckham and family caused a media circus at a Toys"R"Us in Culver City, California. The family drove up in her limited edition Bentley GTC convertible, which is worth every penny and over $250,000. Posh had her initials stitched into the seats and added to the wheel caps. David has opted for a more demure car... he's driving around in a Cadillac Escalade.

Posh at Toys"R"Us is truly an odd sight! She was carrying a bag of M&M's, which you just know is probably a  two-week supply of food for her. We so love the Beckhams.

Stick With The Original

Dear Steeda,

If the original car is never EVER going to be purchased by a demographic that enthusiastically customizes stuff, you don't go and do it yourself.

We'll never figure out some after-market brands! Steeda, which normally tunes Ford Mustangs just like Saleen and Roush, has decided to take a stab at the Ford Fusion, but they accidentally killed it in the process! more...

Much Bigger In Person

One of us at autothing still has night terrors and it's always about the same damn thing: runaway wrecking balls! Look at this, it finally happened!

The half-ton ball broke off a crane in Meadville, Pennsylvania, and rolled down the street until coming to a gentle rest in the trunk of a Ford Taurus. The driver was taken to the hospital as a precaution. more...

Not Confusing In The Least!

Here in America, we have a McDonald's on every block to distract us. Over in the United Kingdom, however, some artist planted street signs and declared them to be a form of art. As you may have already guessed, hilarity ensued and this collection of so-called "art" has caused twelve accidents already. more...

The New Neighbors Just Moved In...

Mark and Debbie Rotosky make such a beautiful couple, don't you think? Heck, this photo doesn't even have to tell a thousand words to explain anything! The stylish duo hails from Indiana where they drive their pimped hearse, which as you would expect, attracts lots of attention. Their matching outfits are totally hot and we'll bet anything that the Chucky doll joins them for "sexy time". Gross, we know! more...

We'll Take One

Forgive all the Lambo-related posts this month, but did anybody know that a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Versace Edition was created? New for 2007, just twenty of these models were commissioned and not all have been spoken for yet.

We still cannot get used to the one-hole center exhaust. Slap it on a $50,000 Porsche Boxster or a $300,000 Lamborghini Murcielago and it looks the same...

The Versace edition of the Murcielago utilizes the iconic geometric design of the Italian fashion house on nearly every inch of the interior space. Seats, center console, door panels and even the headliner -- all areas include the design.

But wait, there's more! Since everybody and their grandma knows that decals look really classy on a Lamborghini, the design is also included on the exterior.

All minor quips aside, we'll take this baby in a heartbeat!

Stop The Car. NOW.

Did some nerd finally figure out how to divide by zero? Well no, but this is probably what would happen of they did!

The house was scheduled for demolition when two imaginative installation artists decided to give the home a make-over. Or is it make-under?

Yes, the other side of the hole actually exists, as this little girl fortunately discovered.

Never Get Rear-Ended In A Lamborghini

This metallic yellow Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder was a gorgeous ride until it caught on fire. Leave it to the trusty bystanders and their cell phones to gather some good video of the very sad incident. Oh who are we kidding -- we love a good ole' fashioned disaster caught on tape!

If Acting Is Easy, Sign Us Up!
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

Jason Statham, star of both The Transporter films and The Italian Job, apparently makes enough cashola to drive a very gorgeous, very expensive, metallic orange Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster.

Just imagine... you buy a new BMW or Infiniti, hand the restaurant valet your keys for classic "front row parking" and then this jerk pulls up. You know your car is getting the spot next to the dumpster!

If Only!

The Saturn Aura is based on the Europe's Opel Vectra (pictured), which is a very good looking car. The Aura is expected to undergo a redesign for the 2009 model year and well, let's just hope it resembles that slick looking Opel. America is ready for another futuristic looking car like the Saturn Sky convertible! more...

Deputize Us Now

Sure it sucks when the majority of your work consists of writing tickets to people who can't afford them, but if driving a Saleen S281 Extreme is the pay-off, so be it! This stunning rendition of the Ford Mustang costs only $80,000 for the retail version and while you don't get the menacing Big Brother accessories, you still get a hot ride with around 550hp. This Saleen appears in Transformers and we learned that Saleen built the movie's concept Camaro too; they used a Pontiac GTO as the base. more...

Oh, here's a quick video of the Saleen, known as "Barricade" in the movie, appearing at some press event. It's the bomb!

Interesting Or Something

Coming in 2008, the Ford Flex has landed within range of our short attention span. It's like Ford crossed the first-generation Scion xB with a Honda Element and a classic Ford Fairlane (probably the basis for this beautiful creature).

Ford is going upscale in general with its 2008 models -- some get interior ambient lighting (the Mustang and Focus) while others get HID headlights. Pretty soon, all these luxurious Ford vehicles will make those Lincoln models obsolete.  more...
