Part off-roader and part pop-top camper, this 1966 Land Rover 109 Series IIA Dormobile has seen its fair share of adventure. Originally owned by big game hunter Herbert S. Veltmen, the vehicle was first used in Africa for safari hunts and expeditions. A 1977 purchase brought it to the states where it saw a restoration that included new Italian leather upholstery, new speedometer, and a rebuild of the original 2.25 liter four-cylinder engine and transmission. The interior contains a two-burner propane stove, dry sink, and additional sleeping when the front and rear seats are folded flat, while the clamshell roof houses with a pair of fold-out cots for accommodations far more stylish than your average camper.
The first look at the latest concept from Spark for the FIA's Formula E racing series is nothing short of revolutionary. The Spark SRT05E Formula E Race Car is the company's latest challenge that is slated to be on the track for Formula E's fifth season in 2018. The new model will travel twice the distance of the current electric car which needs to be swapped out only halfway through a race. This much more powerful model features a more aerodynamic design, better efficiency in the drivetrain, and larger battery pack designed to keep it going for the entirety of a race. Spark has taken the past four years of Formula E experience to develop this concept, and we can't wait to see how it performs on the track in 2018.
Using the G-Class as a base, the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet adds an off-road model to the luxury sub-brand. It's powered by a twin-turbocharged V12 engine, paired with a four-wheel-drive system to handle any terrain. Although the entire interior is covered in diamond-stitch two-tone designo upholstery, the inside really caters to the passengers. The rear compartment sits below an electric fabric top for an open-air experience and can be completely closed off from the driver with a glass partition — with an opaque switch for maximum privacy. The seats fully recline and are equipped with a calf rest and a heated massage function comparable to a hot-stone massage. Other features include folding tables, cooled or heated cupholders, and two 10-inch entertainment systems. Limited to just 99 units.
