Takayanagi Miluira

The Takayanagi Miluira is a quirky, steam punk style electric car from Japan. It also happens to have one of the most difficult to spell names.

With its all-electric drivetrain the Takayanagi Miluira can reach a top speed of just 37 mph (60 km/h). The maximum range is only 22 miles (35 km).

BMW 42-wheel concept

You might think this absurd creation is the work of some fanatically over zealous BMW fanboy. But actually it comes courtesy of BMW themselves! It’s just a photoshop mock up, and is more of a marketing ploy than anything else, but were you really expecting them to make this thing? It’s got 42 wheels and 19 engines for Christ’s sake!

Fiat Panda 4X4 Monster Truck

Understandably you may be wondering why Fiat would commission such an outrageous vehicle. Well that’s because this particular monster Panda will be used in an upcoming TV commercial due to start airing in 2013. Created by the Leo Burnett ad agency, it tells the story of four friends who set off for a weekend in the mountains. The Panda 4×4, transforming into a Monster Truck, climbs nimbly up to the hostel, stunning everyone with its performance. And when the driver, thinking he is on a normal Panda 4×4, gets down from the car, he ends up falling two metres onto a cushion of snow, to the laughter of his friends.

Batmobile (Batman Begins)

During the filming of ‘Batman Begins’ the movie makers used 8 different Batmobile’s (called the Tumbler), four of which were drivable and surprisingly rapid. The Batmobiles were powered using 340 horsepower GM 350 V8’s giving them a 0-60 time of around 5.3 seconds and a theoretical top speed of 220 miles per hour. The design is based on a cross between a Lamborghini Countach and a Humvee. The designer actually bought an airfix model of both the Countach and Humvee and played around with the models until the desired look was achived.

FAB 1

For the 2004 Thunderbirds film, FAB 1 was redesigned for the 21st century, and this was the result. 23 feet of carbon fibre and excessive pinkness. The futuristic 6 wheeled Rolls-Royce was built by Ford, and it really drives.
