See How This RZR Was Built To Pull Off Impossible Off-Road Stunts

The Polaris RZR RJ Anderson punted through oversized bowls, 50/50 log grinds, and a series of other insane backwoods stunts (including a world-record setting 170' jump) was not exactly off the showroom floor. Here's a closer look at how one of the wildest small-scale off-road vehicles ever came together. » 12/19/14 7:02pm 12/19/14 7:02pm

The Gibbs Quadski Is A Badass Amphibious ATV

Have you ever wished that you had an ATV, but held off on pulling the trigger because you wanted to buy a jet ski, too, but couldn't have both at the same time? » 10/16/12 10:30am 10/16/12 10:30am

Three-year-old driver + four-wheel ATV + one icy lake = winter fun

OK, it's actually a three-and-a-half year old. These things are important at that age. Also, an amazing amount of hand-eye coordination and arm control from someone who likely still gets excited over juice boxes. Then again, so does Jim Glickenhaus. » 5/20/11 1:00pm 5/20/11 1:00pm

Yamaha Wins First Rhino Rollover Lawsuit

ATVs are dangerous. Especially if you're not wearing a helmet and seatbelt while operating them. A bunch of people weren't smart enough to figure that out and sued Yamaha for negligence. Yamaha just won the first case. » 8/31/09 8:30am 8/31/09 8:30am

Popular Science Builds Insane Jet Turbine-Powered ATV

60 MPH, 114 dB, 1300 degrees, 150,000 RPM. We probably wouldn't be crazy enough to put a jet turbine in a side-by-side, but we know we definitely wouldn't take it for a test run through Philly. [PopularScience] » 6/30/09 5:30pm 6/30/09 5:30pm

Lamborghini ATVs Spotted At 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon

We got to show you a pretty nifty Ferrari-badged Hayabusa Trike Friday, but that wasn't the only exotic car cross-branding at the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon. Check out these adorable Lamborghini Murcielago ATVs. » 1/26/09 10:00am 1/26/09 10:00am

Half-Circle Roll Cage Makes Quad Semi-Crash Proof

A little bit of metalworking knowhow has converted a perfectly functional quad into a perfectly functional quad that can do forwards and backward rolls. You're still out of luck if you rolls the quad on its side, but I'm sure the creators of this vehicle are working on putting a quad in a hamster ball next. Overall,… » 3/12/08 4:15pm 3/12/08 4:15pm

110cc Toolbox Quad: Lazy or Creative?

We've seen some pretty interesting mods around these parts, but this 110cc quad toolbox has to be one of the more peculiar. I hate to jump to conclusions or make assumptions, but this is really just a 110cc miniature quad sawed in half and welded back to a pretty standard toolbox. The owner says it is used in the pits… » 3/12/08 1:30pm 3/12/08 1:30pm

Commenter of the Day: ATV Nightmare Edition

Once again, Signore Loverman is off-duty for COTD today, and since he bought his first shotgun at the age of three, we won't inquire too closely about the reasons why he asked me to sub for him this fine Monday evening. Sometimes we give this award to the commenter who lasers straight to the core of a topic with his… » 11/12/07 7:30pm 11/12/07 7:30pm

KTM Launches First Quads, Coming to the USA in 2008

Best known for their race winning supermotos and the stunning X-Bow, KTM are launching their first Quad bikes. The 450 XC and XC feature the same powerful single cylinder engines as the Austrian company's dirt bikes, which should make them an equally wild ride. The full press release follows the jump.

We Don't Need No Stinkin' Windshield: Hooning on an STi-ATV

Imagine blasting around New Zealand on an ATV powered by a rally-tuned Subaru STi engine. We got hip to this face-warping toy last year, but this is the first video we've seen of it in action. Apparently, Kiwis have this Race to the Sky thing, where all manner of radical four-wheelers blast up some middle-earth… » 9/15/06 8:19am 9/15/06 8:19am

Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut, Sometimes You Don't — The Quadski ATV

And speaking of Transformers — here's an ATV which'll probably feel at home in both the new Michael Bay directed flick, as well as in pretty much any Bond movie. It's an all-terrain vehicle with a 140 bhp engine and a 50 mph top speed, but then it can pop the tires up and sink the engine into the pool for a dip,… » 6/01/06 11:43am 6/01/06 11:43am

Quadrophenia: Autocar Drives the Qpod in Traffic

Is it a glorified ATV retrofitted for ministry-of-transportation approval, or a full-sized Volkswagen Beetle that's been swimming in an icy lake? Whatever it is, the City of London considers it a scooter, so it doesn't charge riders of the 340cc bone shaker for congestion, which makes it kind of a bargain for those… » 11/25/05 2:27pm 11/25/05 2:27pm
