    This is the Tim Burton inspired Batmobile motorcycle trike built by Game Over Cycles in Portland, Oregon. They did a great job. Now Batman needs to get a custom t-shirt with "IF YOU CAN READ THIS, ROBIN FELL OFF' printed on the back. He should probably get a Catwoman version... / Continue →

    This is a video of Dale Walter and his Mad Max Interceptor. Dale spent $5,000 on a 1972 Australian Ford Falcon, then sent the piece of rusting junk to the vehicle customizers at Mad Max Cars, who, five years and $120,000 later, returned to him with this. If he had sent it to ... / Continue →

    This is the custom R2-D2 wrap that Instructables user mimaki cg60 created for an old VW bus. He spent over 50 hours in CorelDraw and Photoshop perfecting the design and adhering it to the vehicle. You can use the same process to make an R2-D2 wrap for any car though, provided... / Continue →

    This is a short video from the new Mario Kart 8 showing off Luigi's evil side. Thanks to a new and improved replay system that allows you to focus on the players of a race that's already been won, you get to see the players up close and personal. In this case, getting to witn... / Continue →

    That is not a lawn. This is Honda's Mean Mower, the new world record holder for fastest lawnmower, at 116.57MPH. For reference, that is entirely too fast to be cutting the grass. You would be through your backyard fence and in your neighbor's pool faster than you can say, "H... / Continue →

    This is the R/C Bullet, a radio controlled car built by Nic Case, who just set the world record for fastest R/C car when it hit 188.87MPH. For reference, that is infinitely faster than I am running right now (I'm laying on the couch in the break room). There's a video of the ... / Continue →

    Remember the Razor Crazy Cart we were all stoked about until we heard the weight limit is 140-pounds and I'm at least 60-pounds (that I'm willing to admit) over that? Well now Razor is releasing an XL version that is strong enough to support weights up to 250-lbs at breakneck ... / Continue →

    Note: Security cam footage of the hole appearing after the jump. At 5:44AM Wednesday morning a sinkhole opened underneath part of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and swallowed eight cars, at least two of which are valued over $1-million apiece. Wow --... / Continue →

    This is an older video of a motorcyclist laying his head on the track in a high-speed turn. I would not do that. The only way you're getting me to lay down on a motorcycle is in a bikini for a calendar shoot. Keep going for the video, head on the track happens about 20-secon... / Continue →

    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 $15,000 Sportsman WV850 H.O. from Polaris. That's a pretty poor name. I would have called it the Unstoppable Earthf***er or something with STYLE. The all-terrain military inspired vehicle includes unpoppable TerrainArmor™ non-pneumatic tires which can stand up to... / Continue →

    This is a BMW Z4 that was on display at the at the recent China Import and Export Fair in the Guangdong province. It's been painted gold and has a face, scaled wings and tail made from cut mountain yak bone. So if you were worried those yaks died in vain, you can rest a littl... / Continue →

    On display at the currently happening State Fair of Texas (where else?), Chevrolet exhibited this Silverado 'Black Ops Concept'. What makes it so apocalypse ready? Hopefully more than just the custom graphics and yellow accents like I suspect. "Luck favors the prepared and t... / 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 video of the Volkswagen Golf modded and supercharged up to 1,016-horsepower that can do 0 - 60MPH in 2.4-seconds and hit just short of 200MPH. Based on the video from the cockpit, I'm pretty sure that passenger assumed this would be his last ride. And can you blame ... / Continue →

    This is a video from China of some guy who shouldn't be riding a scooter. He drives that thing like he's trying to play street pinball and he's the ball. Thankfully, the dude wasn't seriously injured, so we can all sit back and laugh about it without feeling bad. Unless you ... / Continue →

    This is the motorcycle helmet with an attached skull mask worn by an unknown biker attending the Harley Davidson National Rally in China. You should get totally one, that way everybody thinks you're Ghost Rider. Well, at least the people who can't tell a motorcycle from your ... / 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 the Daewoo Matiz that retired mechanic Alan Bennet modded into an original series Batmobile for his six-year old grandson Alfie. Alan spent over £5,000 (~$7,700 -- I have no clue where all that money went) modding the car after it failed inspection. The vehicle is no... / Continue →

    I've used tons of terrible screencaps on Geekologie, and this one is certainly no exception. I had the choice of either using one of the CD just spinning, or after the explosion, and I chose neither of those and went with a really blurry one from during the ACTUAL explosion. ... / Continue →
