Available in large Monster truck or smaller Racer varieties, each is controlled via app, letting you use virtual controls — or accelerometer movements — to guide the vehicle. While the Monster connects via Bluetooth, the Racer comes with a RF transmitter — but either way, they're both compatible with most newer iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads. [Watch More]

Cadillac has just announced it has given the green light for production of the ELR Electric Car. An extended range plug-in electric vehicle, the powertrain will pair an electric propulsion system with a four cylinder engine. Electricity will serve as the primary energy source with the gasoline engine kicking in as the battery runs low for additional range. An evolution of the company’s Art and Science design language, the ELR boasts strong, sharp lines in a sleek, compact silhouette. Look for the official unveiling of the ELR at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. [See More]

If you’re a guy who has plenty of testosterone at your disposal, chances are you would definitely fall in love with the Gibbs Quadski amphibious ATV, as it actually gives you a 2-in-1 solution of an ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) as well as a jet ski. Needless to say, it took the expertise of a company like Gibbs, who did create the Aquada amphibious car after all, to sell the Quadski amphibious ATV. It will not come cheap though as we are looking at a sticker price tag of $40,000 (USD), but don’t expect it to perform as well as a car as that would be comparing apples and oranges. Enjoy.

Most "anniversary" vehicles tend to be little more than a few badges and some fancy embroidery — which is why we're so impressed with the Ducati Monster 20th Anniversary Motorcycle ($TBA). A recreation of the original model, it features a bronze-colored frame, a chromium-plated finish, a gold-finished Brembo braking system, and a vintage Ducati '86 logo on the tank, and current-generation technology that makes it a near-perfect marriage of old and new.

German exotic car tuner DMC releases the latest visuals to its modified version of the Lamborghini Aventador LP-700. As the name suggests, the LP-700 sees a bump in horsepower, taking it from 691hp to 885hp — hence its rounded-up LP-900 alias. The Molto Veloce Aventador’s magma-inspired paint job is accented by a handful of carbon fiber aero add-ons including, a large rear wing spoiler, intake ducts, side skirts, a front splitter and rear diffuser. For the Molto Veloce, one of the biggest improvements was in weight reduction as the entire exhaust system was replaced with DMC’s very own custom titanium piping, reducing 90% of the stock system’s weight. Although the roar of the Aventador’s V12 is not showcased in the teaser, the visuals are enough to give you an idea as to just how much more faster this aggressiveness car now is. Enjoy.

Porsche releases an update to their ever-respectable Cayenne SUV with the 2013 Turbo S. The six-digit grocery-getter features a 4.8L V8 that puts out 550 hp at the crank which translates into a 0-62 mph sprint of 4.5 seconds. This ensures the Turbo S in its stock form is good for up to 175 mph, but we can imagine tuners will come along and put in their own audacious efforts. Aesthetically the crossover model features 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels, aggressive flares on the wheel arches and a two-tone interior. More comprehensive info on the Turbo S can be seen here.

First debuting in 1971, Lamborghini‘s famed Countach quickly became every red-blooded male’s dream car upon its release. Jim Chan happened to be one of those guys growing up but he managed to turn his fantasy into reality when he finally acquired a pristine example. The owner of Axis Wheels, producer of some of the finest rims around, Chan is a petrol-head through and through so it comes as no surprise then that he gladly met up with the crew from Petrolicious to talk about his newly acquired supercar and show off its beautiful angular bodywork. Honest in his appraisal of the car, Jim waxes lyrical about the beauty of the car before going on to mention its complete lack of ergonomics and everyday usability. Enjoy.

We probably don’t need to tell you that Jay Leno is a car nut who has his own show called, Jay Leno’s Garage; but we will, just for the sake of those few who may not have never heard of him. This time, the 62-year old TV host was invited to Toyota City in Japan to witness firsthand the construction methods of the Lexus LFA Spyder. Watching the carbon fibers being loomed and Lexus’ employees slowly but methodically, assembling the V10-engined supercar is, in itself, quite interesting. At all times, it remains an open-top since car, as it doesn’t come with any type of roof cover, not even a canvas-style like the old Murcielago. Enjoy.

Serious riders would never mistake Yamaha's XJ6 for a stunt bike — yet that's exactly what was used as the base for the Yamaha Moto Cage-Six Concept Motorcycle ($TBA). Being a concept, it will likely never become available, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the garish paint scheme, exposed framework, and car tire-carrying rear wheel.
