Faraway cousins of the Stuttgart stallions

One of the many perks of being a Volkswagen Auto Group sibling is getting to raid the closet, or in this case, the parts bin of Porsche. That is exactly what Bentley turned to when co-developing the new Continental GT, which goes like a spaceship thrusted by the W12, while corners like one too (if spaceships could corner) thanks to the Porsche Panamers toolkit.

Unbreakable: 2005 Toyota Hilux resto rebuild

The red TRD pro-esque 2005 Hilux came to be an adventitious decision by Fahmid Ishtiaque Ahmed, as he wanted to fish for something unique in a sea of numerous Defender and Patrol builds. This sweet 4x4 is indeed greater than the sum of its parts. I am sure Marty McFly would be proud.
