Memminger Roadster 2.7 is the ultimate VW Beetle

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 15:05:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) As charming and cute as classic Volkswagen Beetles are, there's no getting around the fact that they're not especially sleek, nor are fast. At all. That is with the exception of this, the Memminger Roadster 2.7. It's a custom Bug built by a German restoration shop called Memminger. It's low, it has extremely wide, pumped up fenders, and has been turned into a two-seat roadster. It almost looks like a Porsche 356, but bigger. And check out those sweet plaid seats.

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 14:01:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,

(image) Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations might have bit of a tainted history, but for the past few years, the company has been building some pretty sweet Shelby Mustangs using modern running gear and chassis packed underneath classic bodywork. The company has something new on the horizon. Later this year, Classic Recreations will offer officially licensed 1969-1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302, 1969-1970 Mustang Boss 429 and 1969-1970 Mustang Mach 1.

Nissan is working on a custom Patrol overland off-roader

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 10:30:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) Nissan is following up on last-year's expedition-ready Titan Basecamp pickup with yet another expedition-ready vehicle. This time the company is going with its Nissan Patrol full-size SUV and it looks pretty sweet. From the renderings, it looks like it's getting a number of off-road staples such as big steel bumpers, a substantial suspension lift, big tires, lots of auxiliary lights and a winch. It also has gas cans, traction boards, and a rooftop tent. It should have everything you need to camp

Custom Toyota FJ Cruiser convertible could be yours

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 10:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) Toyota's FJ Cruiser SUV ticked off most of the boxes the original FJ40 Land Cruiser did. It had two-door styling (thanks to hidden half-doors) and plenty of off-road capability from a traditional four-wheel-drive system and good ground clearance. But unlike the FJ40, the Cruiser never had a convertible option. At least one person decided that was necessary and had one converted to a convertible sometime in its life, and now it could be yours.

Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison trademark filed, could be upfitted overlander

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 13:50:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) The Chevy Colorado ZR2 is a favorite here at Autoblog. It was a finalist for our most recent Technology of the Year award thanks to some trick spool-valve suspension. It's supremely capable off road without giving up anything on the streets. It looks like Chevy may have something bigger planned for the ZR2. AutoGuide reports that GM recently filed a trademark for the name "ZR2 Bison." In fact, we may have already seen a preview of the truck last fall with the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept at SEMA.

Would you pay $17 a month to give your older Ford connectivity?

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 09:05:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,

(image) When it was first introduced in 2007, there was nothing like the original Ford Sync system, since it allowed car owners to connect and use a portable device better than anything that came before it. It took competitors awhile to catch up. But now Ford is the one playing catchup.

Car owners in survey worry about pet safety but could do more about it

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 17:20:00 EDT

Filed under: ,

(image) It's always fun to see a dog hanging its head out a passenger window of a passing car, its tongue trailing in the wind. But many people probably don't think about the safety implications of that unrestrained pet and what would happen if that car were to crash at high speed. That's also the topic behind a new survey of American car and pet owners from Volvo Car USA.

Aye Captain! Hennessey's 2018 Lincoln Navigator has 600 HP

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 17:05:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) Texas tuner John Hennessey wants to steer the 2018 Lincoln Navigator into some serious performance SUV territory, presently dominated by the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and Range Rover SVR. Upping the power of Lincoln's range-topping sport-utility, from 450 horsepower to an even 600 hp, is enough to hustle the Navigator from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds at 107 mph.

(image) It's Easter time, and that means it's time for the 52nd Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, held March 24 through April 1, where thousands of off-roaders crawl, scrape and scramble over the rugged trails of Moab, Utah. And that brings us to this year's colorful collection of Jeep concepts, custom-built by FCA for the occasion.
