Guess What's Under The Hood Of This Orthodontist-Designed Car

For the second time this week, I find myself reeling from the buzz of learning about another obscure car I never knew existed. This one also hails from South America, and while it’s still satisfyingly weird, inside there’s some very familiar oily bits.

Gurgel May Be The Weirdest Car Company Ever

There's actually a lot of competition for the title of "weirdest carmaker." You've got companies like Sbarro making cars designed for falconry, and there's genuine kooks like Mohs, making gigantic, exterior-upholstered monsters.

Watch a "Lamborghini" drag car meet the wall at full throttle

When the world of drag racing and modified supercars combine the result is usually pretty wild.

Eight second vintage Rolls Royce is a twin turbo monster

It's hard to believe until you witness the sheer power in the above video, but this full bodied vintage Rolls Royce is capable of a 8.09 second 1/4 mile. According to the builder, the car is still 100% street legal although it has slimmed down quite a bit to a 3050lb race weight. Helping move this British steel down… » 9/03/11 12:30pm 9/03/11 12:30pm
