There are many, many companies around the world that'll restore your arthritic Volkswagen bus and convert it from gasoline to electric power. Germany's eClassics is one such outfit.But here's the thing-eClassics actually has the support of the
This machine took 700 hours to complete
It's a perfect BMW sandwich. There's a 2800 CS on the outside and an S54 straight-six from the E46 M3 on the inside. One of the all-time great engines by any manufacturer, sitting in one of the best
Something two-wheeled this time around
This is what's commonly known as a motorbike, formally known as the Myth 001, and informally known as the kind of bike we daydream about owning while we're supposed to be making useful contributions to conversations. Or society, or whatever.
Forget restomods—this is full-on genetic engineering
According to Nathaniel and Callum Seviour, director brothers of Retropower in Leicestershire, 'bespoke' is too small a word to explain what they do."When a client has that first consultation, we ask so many questions," says Cal, his older brother nodding along
Remember this?
How cool is this? It's a first-generation Hyundai Pony that's been thoroughly modernized by Hyundai's own designers. Not just a model, but (we're led to believe) an actual first-gen Pony painstakingly disassembled, re-engineered, and then
One of the most beautiful cars ever created has been made better
Perfection, probably. German outfitter Mechatronik has been dabbling with old Mercedes-Benzes for over two decades now, and it was with this wonderful creation-dubbed the 'M-SL'-that it made its mark.Indeed, it says as much. "It was impossible to
No point in meddling with perfection

Peak FJ44 restomod, we say

Don’t be blinded by the clean looks—this thing generates 518hp
