We’re Hot Over This Ferrari F40-Lamborghini Countach Hybrid Rendering

Humor us for a moment and imagine us doing our best Jeff Goldblum impression as Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park and shouting, “You did it. You crazy son of a bitch, you did it.” Because right now, we’re Dr. Malcolm, and Instagram-savvy designer Abimelec Arellano (abimelecdesign) is Richard Attenborough as Jurassic Park founder John Hammond. Except, instead of bringing dinosaurs back from extinction, Arellano went and rendered the Ferrari F40-Lamborghini Countach hybrid the world never knew it needed.

We dare you to tell us this theoretical machine does not define peak ’80s hotness. Heck, look at the thing! It combines the square lines and wedge-shaped design of the F40 with the outrageous phone-dial wheels, rear wing styling, flared fenders, and V-12 engine of the Countach. If the Ferrari and Lamborghini weren’t so rare, we’d beg someone to make a real-life version of what is proffered

This Aston Martin-Designed Sylvan Rock House Is a Cool $7.7 Million

An Aston Martin . . . house? This isn’t a bad joke about the size of the Aston Martin DBX SUV, but instead a collaboration between an architecture firm and Aston’s in-house design department, Aston Martin Design. Recognizing that the aura of refinement and luxury that a brand like Aston Martin exudes, the company’s design operation has branched out of late, lending the Aston Martin name and design talent to vehicles like the Airbus ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter and the Brough Superior AMB 001 motorcycle. The company’s even put its name on a luxury residential building in Miami, the Aston Martin Residences. But the Sylvan Rock house is so far unique, boasting of its Aston Martin design and looking as angular and striking as the company’s famous Lagonda sedan.

The house—which isn’t yet built, as the images here are just renders—will be located on a 55-acre property

Play Mario Kart in Real Life With “Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit”

Everyone is probably familiar with Mario Kart, Nintendo’s enduring multiplayer title that combines Mario characters, goofy cartoon racing karts, and plenty of weaponized widgets for attacking other players on elaborate fantasy race tracks. Since its debut in 1992 under the Super Mario Kart title and subsequent appearances since, Mario Kart has been played exclusively in the digital realm, on home consoles, Game Boys, portable systems, and in arcades. That changes with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit for Nintendo Switch, which literally drops the racing game into reality—in your living room. How? With clever software capable of delivering a “mixed reality” experience between players, their Nintendo Switches, and physical Mario Karts that can be raced around actual tracks you create.

Sound trippy? A little. With Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, Nintendo uses its handheld Switch console to overlay the cartoon Mario Kart universe over

EarthCruiser Terranova Is a Camper for One-Ton Pickup Trucks

Watch out Toyota, because it turns out it’s not enough to “cruise” the “land”. Nope. Today’s adventurers want to cruise the earth, and they may need something beyond the mighty Land Cruiser SUV. EarthCruiser offers the camper kit to help those planet-roamers, including the upcoming Terranova.

Due to arrive early 2021, the new Terranova is one of the ultimate ways to explore this planet from behind the wheel of a 2020-or-newer Chevrolet Silverado 3500, Ford F-350, GMC Sierra 3500, or Ram 3500 pickup truck. The latter model is shown in these illustrations provided by EarthCruiser of its upcoming camper.

Made of fiberglass and what EarthCruiser refers to as “high-density plastic” materials, the Terranova takes the place of its host pickup’s bed to offer a space with literal beds. This camper offers more than just sleeping quarters, though, as the Terranova also comes with

Roush 600 RE Is a Special European Ford GT With Mods

It seems unbelievable now, but at the end of the run of the previous-generation Ford GT in 2006, there were a few that went unsold. Ford and its partner, Roush Engineering, found the upside in the form of the Roush 600 RE, modifying these special few late-production cars and sending them to Europe. And they didn’t arrive empty-handed, either, as Roush’s modifications ensured a healthy bump in output.

RE stands for Roush Europe, a clear indicator that these are no regular Roush-fettled Fords. And while this one has the retro-inspired Heritage Edition colors that invoke the blue-and-orange glory of the legendary Gulf Oil racing livery, this scheme apparently wasn’t a common choice for the 600 RE. This may be the only one. Not that there are many in the first place—just 10 GTs were converted to 600 RE spec, according to RM Sotheby’s.
