    This is the 500,000+ piece LEGO car that was built by 20-year-old Romanian Raul Oaida. Obviously it's not 100% LEGO (chassis, axles, wheels), but it is fueled by compressed air powering 256 LEGO pistons and can allegedly reach speeds up to 20MPH. For reference, that's faster ... / Continue →

    This is the $45,000 conference table made from a retired 747's General Electrics engine. Only the nacelle of the engine though, so it's not like you could use it to build your own plane if you bought one. WHICH FOR $45,000 YOU SHOULD. Man, could you imagine investing your ha... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

    This is a motorcycle powered by a 150hp Rotec Radial R3600 airplane engine. It was pieced together by German mechanic Frank Ohle, who, God willing, has future plans to bolt wings to the thing and speed it straight off a cliff and into our hearts. Or a ravine. Over the cours... / Continue →

    This is a 152,455-piece, 677-pound, cross-section, cross-legged, wonk-eyed, 1:2 scale LEGO model of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 airplane engine. That's the same engine that powers Boeing's 787 but NOT choo-choo trains. Choo-choo trains run on the imaginations of children. It's t... / Continue →

    Casey Putsch built a Batmobile powered by a turbine engine from a naval helicopter (allegedly the only tubine-powered Batmobile to date so I don't know what this is) because he's a firm believer IN GOING BIG OR NOT GOING AT ALL. Hey, I'm with you bro. *finishing off second 20... / Continue →

    Spark plugs are used to ignite the gas and oxygen mixture in your vehicle's engine and are NOT to be confused with butt plugs, which are used to reignite the passion in your bedroom. Me? I tried once but just shit the sheets. So romantic. Enter laser plugs: way less intimid... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like some sort of Pagan sun talisman, a shock-wave generator may prove to be the future of engines, pushing traditional internal-combustion joints to the wayside. Ooooooor being all bullshit. Oooooor having its patent rights bought up by engine ... / Continue →

    Yesterday we took a peep at CryTek's CryEngine 3 and today, the latest version of Unreal's gaming engine. As you'll see, it looks pretty good, even more so considering IT'S A HANDHELD RECORDING A PROJECTOR SCREEN. Just amazing. The bootleg I tried filming at the adult theate... / Continue →

    Chewbacca I trust, Boba not so much. He seems like the kind of mechanic that'd charge you for a new transmission when he didn't do anything but cut your brakes. Which, fun fact: pedestrians are a poor substitute. Aim for a tree. Not your average mechanics [zanypickle] Than... / Continue →

    The 2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike sports four 17-inch wheels, a 250 cubic inch V8 producing 350 horsepower and an extra helping of deathtrap. Want one? Expect to spend $93K. Unless you're Batman, in which case it comes standard in the front end of a Tumbler. Unless he's be... / Continue →

    The $200,000 WaterCar is the lovechild of a Corvette that fell in love with a cigarette boat. But, like having sex with a mermaid, everyone will tell you it was just a manatee. Get a Corvette engine, rig it up with a Dominator Jet drive, and then strap it into a floating car,... / Continue →

    This is a video of a go-kart with a Honda CBR 900RR motorcycle engine in it. It's the closest thing to a real Mario Kart I've ever seen. I love how the guy driving doesn't even bother wearing a helmet. Because, honestly, heads are overrated, especially when you're drifting i... / Continue →

    The Lazareth Wazuma Bio V12 is the lovechild resulting from the night a 4-wheeler banged mother nature and then slept with a Formula-1 car for good measure (read: a 500-horsepower death trap that runs on E85 ethanol and costs a staggering $285,000). You'd think for more than a... / Continue →

    Okay it doesn't really sting, it's just a freaking car. Oh wait, maybe it does. The Scorpion gets its sting from a hydrogen delivery system the company calls H2GO. While cars like the Honda FCX Clarity and Chevrolet Equinox use hydrogen fuel cells to drive electric motors, th... / Continue →

    48-year old New Zealander, Glenn Martin, has spent over 26 years developing a jetpack, and believes it may be ready for sale next year. The 250 lb (part of it rests on the ground at idle so you don't have to lift the weight), 200hp, twin-rotor (it's not actually a jetpack) bea... / Continue →

    This is a Corolla with a custom NES controller engine block cover. It looks good and I wish my piece of crap Metro had one. That would easily double the car's value. Now if entering the ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A Konami code gave you 30 gallons of free gas, then we... / Continue →

    This party blender is powered by a 23cc 4-stroke gas engine (which I assume was yanked from a yard-trimmer or leafblower or something) and costs about $300. The pitcher holds up to 48oz and is sure to destroy the hell out of whatever you put in (suck it Blendtec douche). Oh y... / Continue →
