The car sunshade is great for protecting the dash and interior of your car while keeping the interior temperature down a bit. All fine and dandy, but the Car Full Of Cats Sunshade is so much more. For one, duh, it makes it look like you have a car full of cats but more importantly it lets the world know you DGAF. It is 50″ x 27.5″ which should fit most cars. Includes two suction cups for easy installation. ...

  The Moke started as a British military vehicle in the 1950’s and became an instant classic. It was built by the British Motor Company (BMC) and Alec Issigonis, the father of the original Austin Mini. It looks like the Moke might be making a comeback, this time in America and with an all electric option as well. The gas powered Moke starts at $24,000 and the electric model starts at $16,000.

This new style of tow truck can have a car moved in less than 60 seconds! This seems like what the guys in the movie “Gone in 60 seconds” should have been using. It certainly would have been a lot less dramatic anyway. Check out the video of this super fast tow truck after the break. ...

This $52,500 pickup truck is a bit like a Chevy Volt. It has a 60-kilowatt battery with an 80-mile electric range. Should you deplete your battery, a BMW three-cylinder engine wakes up and charges the battery. The W-15 gets to 6o mph in about 5.5-seconds with 460 horsepower and all wheel drive. Additionally the Workhorse W-15 pickup truck has ports for powering tools, work lights, and other gadgetry. More pictures and video after the break.

The gap between the front car seats and the center console is a black hole. This space between the seat and console has the ability to eat car keys, cell phones, food scraps, and just about anything else. Considering how thin this space is it is amazing how much it manages to catch. There is a simple an inexpensive solution for this gap with names like

Why would you stuff a Ferrari engine into a 1932 Ford and then twin turbo charge it? Because you can! This Vintage Flats satin red fiberglass bodied 32 Ford is a crazy mashup. They started off with the poor mans Ferrari engine (from a 1989 Mondial) and took it up to 950-horsepower with help from twin Turbonetics turbos. Specs and pictures after the break. Oh yeah, you can buy this for about $250k from MP Classics World

The Tesla is the only electric car company that is addressing the charging issue head-on. What other car company has a massive global quick charging network? This is more about the United States even though Tesla is growing the Supercharger network worldwide. Currently Tesla has 2,636 Supercharger stations at 373 locations in North America. Impressive right? Well Tesla now plans to double this number by the end of 2017. Smart move considering the number of Model 3’s that will be hitting the road in the next few years. ...

Amazing time lapse video of a Chrysler Hemi FirePower engine from start to finish. The rebuild took 10-months, a ton of work, and over 40,000 photos. Very cool. ...

Alfa Romeo is making a statement in the SUV market with their Stelvio, named after a winding pass in the Italian Alps. There are two power options, a turbo 2.0-liter four cylinder that makes 280hp (with an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive) and a 505hp 2.9-liter turbo V-6. The bigger engine option, the only option in my opinion, gets from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. State-of-the-art engines are the beating hearts of each and every Alfa Romeo. Every Stelvio, Stelvio Ti and Stelvio Quadrifoglio are powered by class-leading engines that embody...
