  • Enea Casoni EC OnlyOne P8

    EC stands for Enea Casoni, an Italian gentleman responsible for bringing his vision of a bespoke supercar to life. The car is called the EC OnlyOne P8, which is a bit of a mouthful. But the styling is very to the point. The car stands out. And when a Ferrari powertrain figures into the mix, our full attention is commanded. Casoni bills himself as a race car driver, and he's entered and participated in a number of races over the years. Never to great success, but simply getting out on a track and returning a car in one piece is an accomplishment on some level. Casoni is putting his love of...

    The 2018 Gumball 3000 rally kicked off in London on Sunday and among the crowd was none other than Usher, whose choice of ride for this year's rally is a BAC Mono. A car like the Mono can be intimidating, especially on public roads where you're driving alongside tall SUVs and trucks. However, it's...

    Dartz used the start of the 2017 Gumball 3000 rally in Riga, Latvia to premiere its Black Alligator. The SUV is the latest creation from Dartz’s Prombron brand, and its debut in Riga is fitting considering the Latvian capital is home to Dartz. What exactly is the Black Alligator? The SUV, and...

It belongs to online betting company Betsafe and is shown in this video cruising around the streets of Manchester in the U.K. The car weighs just...

    There's nothing like the Gumball 3000. The inter-continental sprint popular with the racers, rappers, rock stars, and ridiculously rich dudes is without a doubt, the most glamorous rally in the world.

    Despite entering its 17th year, the Gumball 3000 rally—it’s more of a road trip than rally and doesn’t involve any actual racing—remains as popular as ever, with this year’s assortment of celebrities and well-heeled car fans taking part now including reigning Formula...

  • Aleksy Marcinow's tattooed Gumpert Apollo on the 2014 Gumball Rally
    Are Car Tattoos The Next Big Trend?

    For some people, there's nothing better than seeing an inked guy or gal walking down the street. To them, the body is a canvas, ready to accept the work of a needle-wielding artisan in exchange for a fistful of cash and a few hours of pain. But how about a tattooed car?

  • Jon Olsson on the slopes in his Rebellion R2k

    Unable to ski at present because of an injury, Swedish adventure skier Jon Olsson has come up with another way to hit the slopes: behind the wheel of a 600-horsepower prototype race car. As the video above shows, Olsson drives up the mountain in the prototype, which is actually his street-legal Rebellion R2k built for last year’s Gumball 3000 rally. MUST SEE: Dashcam Captures POV Crash With Cement Truck: Video The Rebellion R2k is based on the underpinnings of an Ultima GTR, the ultimate street-legal race car, and features a V-8 engine spinning the rear wheels.

    This year's Gumball 3000 road rally is shaping up to be a show stopper. With vehicles like the Rebellion R2K street-legal race car and a custom-built Tumbler, insane rides will not be in short supply. But we can add another car to the list, as a new 2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO will be participating as...

  • Rebellion R2K
    Rebellion R2K Street-Legal Race Car For Gumball 3000

    Building prototypes that are technically street legal isn't anything new. Just look to the Radical RXC, Caparo T1, or Ultima GTR. But it's still a good thing to do. Case in point: the Rebellion R2K. While specs on the car are essentially nil, the car's owner Jon Olsson indicates it's a highly...

    "Street-Legal" Tumbler To Take On Next Gumball Rally

    Generally speaking, the Gumball Rally has become a seemingly no-holds barred on-road playground for the world's wealthy elite. We're not fans of all the on-road antics but not every Gumballer runs the event in that manner, either. Many treat it as a way to see different parts of the world in all...

  • Team Galag building TG1 supercar for Gumball 3000

    From the same team building its very own Tumbler Batmobile for this year’s Gumball 3000 rally, comes this new teaser image for a custom supercar the team is also working on for the rally. That team is Saudi Arabia’s Team Galag, which has released the first image of its new supercar, the TG1. Describing the TG1 as the more difficult of the two projects, as it has to be designed from scratch whereas the Tumbler’s design is already well-documented, Team Galag’s progress so far is going smoothly and a final reveal should be taking place soon. The team is keen to keep the...

    This year’s Gumball 3000 rally has certainly lived up to the event’s notorious reputation of millionaires getting reckless with million dollar machines. We recently saw one of the rally participants make a water crossing in his Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV but that pales in...

    There are Lamborghinis and then there are Lamborghinis. Many, if not most, are coddled their whole lives, living decadent lives of garage- and trailer-bound pampering, rarely, if ever, seeing the kind of use for which they're ostensibly built. This one, however, has gone well beyond the usual...
