Just to be clear, South, not North. I think the only Veloster mules they have in North Korea are actual mules named 'Veloster.' But this particular mule appears to be testing an actual, engine-behind-the-driver Veloster, presumably driving the rear wheels. In short, something that sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.
Car companies build pre-production prototypes to test new car technology hidden under disguised Frankenstein bodies. Sometimes these development mules end up being higher on our wish list than the final product.
I was driving yesterday afternoon and saw a funky looking "work" van that looked sort of like a Sprinter, but carried a VW logo on its hood.
An Oklahoma man was arrested this past weekend for public intoxication and assault and battery on a police officer with a deadly weapon. That "deadly weapon" was Keith Woolery's covered wagon and two mules.
This Ford Fiesta mule spotted by a Jalopnik reader near Ford's Dearborn HQ shows a taller, possibly AWD crossover rolling on Ford's small car platform. Unlike the Ford B-Max concept from Geneva, this mule gets its height from a revised suspension.
This mule doesn't mess around with radar proximity sensors or advanced trigonometric algorithms. He just parks with his heart and makes anyone who uses assisted parking feel like an ass.
This long-nosed Ferrari prototype was recently filmed yowling around Maranello. It's wearing the headlights of a 458 Italia, the rear glass of a 599 Fiorano, and enough camouflage to cover half of Europe. Unsurprisingly, it sounds fantastic.
OK, we're flummoxed. We've no idea what the heck this Ferrari is that was spotted outside of the R&D center of the prancing horse in Maranello. We're guessing it's a powertrain mule — but of what kind and what purpose, we've not got the foggiest idea. We're wondering if y'all — or perhaps the nice people at …
We just got the following missive and photos from Brenda Priddy, who's claiming this here taped-up Ferrari is none other than the alleged mini-stallion, the Dino. Here's what Brenda's telling us:
Seriously, we've no idea why this Mercedes SLC mule, the same spotted earlier by the folks at KGP, is arousing us in ways very few vehicles have in a long time. We've no clue how far into the development process the AMG engineers actually are, but all we do know is this mule that's part Viper and part Mercedes is…
Ok, we've no idea how to call this one, but there's some discussion going on over at GMInsideNews as well as Automochatter about whether or not that picture you see above is a powertrain mule for the new Chevy Camaro. The photo shows what looks to be a Holden Commodore with some bolted on fender flares that's lost a…
