No, it's not a high-powered version of the standard, boxy Disco we all know and love. Instead, the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport is an all-new compact SUV that's the first in a new family of Discovery vehicles. The Sport features a sleek, aerodynamic body shell made from steel and aluminum, and is powered by a 240hp, turbocharged 2.0L engine, coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Of course, it's still a Land Rover, and as such offers standard all-wheel drive, a host of off-road goodies like Hill Descent Control, Roll Stability Control, and Electronic Traction Control, and an all-new infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen that boasts off-road specific apps alongside the media and navigation features you expect.
It's not every day you get a chance to own the very first model of a new motorcycle, but that's exactly what you'll find in the Midual Type 1 Motorcycle. Inspired by classic European cars and bikes from the '30s and '50s, this great-looking ride is powered by 1036 cc flat-twin engine pumping out 106hp that's paired with a 6-speed transmission with a multi-plate clutch and an electric starter. Other features include a double-wall aluminum alloy monocoque that acts as the fuel tank and body, a cantilever rear suspension, Brembo brakes, 17-inch wheels, and the ability to draw attention anywhere you ride it.
First released in 1984, the Toyota Land Cruiser 70 was a huge hit — so much so that sales continued well into this century. Now, in response to consumer demand — and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this iconic model — Toyota is re-releasing it for roughly a year. Drawing on the heritage of precious models, it features a traditional closed ladder frame, large approach, break-over, and departure angles, and part-time 4WD. It's powered by a modern 4.0L V6 engine that provides excellent fuel efficiency and nearly 230 hp when needed. The only bad news? You're going to have to figure out how to get it back from Japan on your own.
It's true that the Bandit9 Bishop Motorcycle is listed as being a Honda SuperSport, but one look at this limited edition custom will tell you there's little left of its prior identity. Powered by a 90cc-125cc engine, the Bishop features a high-grade aluminum unibody, either walnut, oak, or teak burl panels, a custom exhaust, muffler, and suspension, a charcoal grey suede seat, an electric starter, and LED brake lights encased in quartz glass. If you like what you see, you'd best hurry — only nine are being built.
