‘Hannibal Lecter’ Supercar

CAR designer Afzal Kahn has made his motoring dream a reality by building his own super car worth £300,000. The car dubbed Vengeance was inspired by his favourite Aston Martin models - and even Hannibal Lecter. While the exterior was modelled on the Vanquish the internal components were taken from the DB9. His new one-of-a-kind super car is fitted with a 6.0 litre V-12 engine, the same engine as the DB9. The car can do 0-60 mph in just over four seconds and has an output of 510 horsepower. The Aston Martin-inspired car has been in the making since 2006 when Afzal first thought of the idea to build the car and it has recently been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

Gone Bananas: Fruity Vehicle Hits Speeds of 85 mph

A British inventor has spent $25,000 turning a pick-up truck into an ap-pealing driveable banana. Steve Braithwaite, who is originally from Woodstock, Oxfordshire, spent two years building the vehicle - which has a top speed of 85mph. The 55-year-old, who now lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan, came up with the idea for the Big Banana Car in 2009. The expensive concept cost around $25,000 and took Steve more than two years worth of Sundays to create. The finished vehicle is 10ft tall and 22ft long but its 302ci Ford V8 engine still allows it to hit impressive speeds.

Speed Of LED Lights: Barracuda Crosskart vs Motorbike

YOU would be forgiven for thinking this is an unreleased scene from iconic sci-fi film Tron. Finnish YouTube stars Stunt Freaks Team have made the Tron races a reality with their latest stunt in which they strapped on LED nights to a motorbike and crosskart buggy while racing in complete darkness on ice and snow. The slick looking video was shot in Imatra, Finland, in sub zero conditions and sees Joonas Salin, 22, who was riding the motorbike, and Antti Leppänen, 26, battle to the finish line. The Stunt Freaks Team have more than 22 million views on YouTube and regularly perform death-defying feats such as driving a snowmobile off the edge of a mountain in Sweden after attaching a parachute to the handle bars.
