F’ing Insane: Mosler MT900 XX Land Shark

Think the Mosler MT900 GTR XX is good enough? Evidently John Gocha didn’t. The Fiend and his company Intense Automotive Design has decided to slather the car’s GM-sourced LS7 V8 with two turbos and four fuels in a bid to reach 2,500 horsepower. That’s not a typo.

Bonnevill Salt Flats: Goldenrod

Picture of the Day: Golden Rod

Watching the porn video footage of the Jagur XFR hit 225.6 mph got me thining about the Bonneville Salt Flats and speed records in general. Odd stuff. Like the Summers brothers’ Goldenrod here.

Triumph Bonneville by Belstaff

Triumph Bonneville by Belstaff

Check this John Player Special (remember them from the heady days of ’70s Formula One) inspired version of Triumph’s Bonneville retro-bike. Its by OG motorcycle gear maker and purveyor of high fashion outerwear, Belstaff. So as a collab this makes perfect sense.
