It's not an illusion, the G63 AMG 6X6 by Mercedes Benz ($500,000) has six wheels. The G63 6X6 was originally built for the Australian military in 2011, so this thing can go anywhere. The civilian version will be powered by a twin-turbo charged 5.5 liter v-8, which will provide you with 544 horses and 560 foot lb's of torque. You'll be driving on some monster tires, each coming in at 37 inches. If you have half a mill burning a hole in your pocket, the G63 AMG 6X6 might be worth consideration.
The much-loved Air Presto gets a fresh new look with a retro twist with the Nike Air Presto “Brutal Honey” ($CALL). The classic design from 1999 has been revived, with the striking yellow and black design demanding attention. Minimalist yet striking, the styling on these Air Presto is fresh yet familiar. One of the 13 original color combinations, these sneakers will hug your foot like a favorite sweater and you’ll never want to slip your feet into anything else again.
If you love old school, I mean real old school styling, with modern tech, then you will fall in love with the Morgan EV3 ($41,000). The EV3 is built on the brand's three wheel platform and utilizes an emission free all-electric design. The power plant includes a 20kWh lithium Battery and a liquid cooled 46kW motor. Because the EV3 only weighs about 1100 lbs that setup enables it to drive about 150 miles on a full charge.As far as performance I would put the EV3 in the weekend touring car category. It has a 0-62 mph split time of under 9 seconds and a top speed of about 90 mph. Like I said, it's a nice car for hitting the country on a beautiful fall day, but not up to being considered a serious performance car.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22607,22606,22605,22604,22603"]

Some times I read up on a product and know right away it's all fluff and no substance or complete hype. And then there are others that make me go hmmmmm. The Enko Running Shoes ($TBA) definitely fit into the later category. The idea behind the shoes is a shock absorber that reduces the initial impact of your stride and as you move forward uses the stored energy to assist your stride. In theory this mean a run that will be easier on your joints and less fatiguing. Starting early February Enko will kick off their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, until then you check out their website to get additional information.
