While it isn't a shooting brake in the classic sense of the British term, this custom Bentayga certainly lives up to the ideal. Purdy, British maker of fine shotguns, and Bentley's in-house bespoke division, Mulliner, have joined together to outfit a one-off Bentayga to the nines for the ultimate in outdoor sporting. The centerpiece is a leather-and-aluminum storage compartment, with space for shotgun shells, binoculars, and most importantly, glasses and a flask. LEARN MORE FROM BENTLEY ...

Designed to be safer, cheaper to operate, and more comfortable than existing big-rigs, the Tesla Semi Truck aims to dramatically improve freight delivery. Its battery pack, situated underneath the cab, provides up to 500 miles per charge, and performance beyond what any diesel rig can provide. Notably, it can go from 0-60 in 20 seconds with a full, 80,000-pound load — the same feat takes a minute in a conventional truck — and climbs 5% grades at a steady 65, 20 mph faster than its competitors. I...

Part coupe, part SUV, the BMW X2 strikes a balance between driving dynamics and versatility. Thanks to its compact size, it handles capably, yet with the xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system can tackle off-road chores like a much larger vehicle. It's powered by one of three gas or diesel engines producing up to 231hp, with more powertrain options to launch in the coming months, and is available in three models, including the M Sport X that borrows elements from the performance-minded M line...

With an all-new G-Class just around the corner, the current flagship is getting a proper sendoff with the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition. To set it apart, it gets 21-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels done in bronze, a color repeated in the underride guard, bumper trim, and side view mirrors. Inside, the designo black Nappa leather and carbon fiber trim are augmented by bronze stitching. It hasn't lost a step compared to its standard siblings, either, with the same AMG 6.0L V12 producing 630 hp, a 0-6...

Jaguar Land Rover has promised to add electrified options to all their vehicle lines by 2020. That process starts with the Land Rover Range Rover Sport P400e. It combines a 296 hp, 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder with a plug-in electric motor for a maximum total output of 398 hp. The Terrain Response 2 uses the latter's instant torque for greater control during low-speed off-road maneuvers, and the motor offers a range of 31 miles in all-electric mode. When the both the gas engine and motor are ...

Based on the already powerful Mercedes-AMG G65, the Brabus 900 SUV is one of the world's most powerful off-road vehicles. Its twin-turbo V12 engine has seen its displacement upped to 6.3L, alongside a host of other improvements that increase the output to an insane 900 hp. As a result, this rugged ride can sprint from 0-62 in just 3.9 seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 168 mph. The body has also been modified to help accommodate the 23-inch forged wheels, which work in concer...

If you absolutely have to be able to anywhere, the Navatek UHAC is your vehicle. The Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector is a prototype for transporting containers from ship to shore and over nearly any obstacle. Currently in testing with the Marine Corps, the UHAC is powerful enough to haul three Abrahms tanks — but the one shown here is only a 1:5 scale model of the proposed full-sized design.

BMW is adding another SUV to its lineup with the full-size X7 model. Unmistakably a BMW, the familiar twin-kidney grill and Hofmeister kink are present, but never in such large, muscular fashion. While the exterior is a relatively radical styling departure for BMW, it's the interior that makes leaps over the German manufacturer's current offerings. An effort to give the interior an atmosphere not dependant on time of day is notable, with contour and laser light piping in the glass roof giving it...

You can hear it everywhere. A cacophonous wailing. It's the death rattle of fossil-fueled supercars, lamenting their fall from the throne of speed. Forget for moment that a Tesla Model X just romped a Lamborghini on the drag strip — because here's an electric UTV that's nearly as fast. The Nikola Zero puts 550 hp and 490 ft-lbs of torque on the ground and sprints to 60 in 3.9 seconds, all while carrying you and three of your friends across your favorite off-road trail. While it isn't a street le...

No matter what kind of 4x4 you have in your garage, one thing is certain — it isn't this hardcore. James A Cuthbertson Ltd of Biggar, Lanarkshire, UK, started making snow plows in 1936. Since then, the company has expanded into other heavy winter equipment and even assisted the US and UK during WWII in building a pipeline from the British Isles to France in support of D-Day. An early manufacturer of rubber tracks, Cuthbertson made a four-track kit for Land Rovers to easily traverse the peat bogs...

Current methods for moving things by truck waste a lot of room for something that will soon become unnecessary: the driver. The Einride T-Pod Self-Driving Truck can carry up to 15 standard pallets or 20 tons of goods in just a 23-foot body thanks to the removal of the cab. On the highway, the all-electric truck drives itself, while a driver can take control remotely for urban driving. It has a range of 124 miles, and the company says it will be testing a prototype later this year while also bu...
