Wreck (2016) by Philadephia-based sculptor Jordan Griska, who sez of it:

Wreck is based on a computer-generated model of a luxury sedan, in a video game, which was manipulated to look like it was involved in a crash that resulted in a fatality. I crafted 12,000 individual pieces of mirror-finish stainless steel, over the course of almost two years, in order to transform that model into a full-sized three-dimensional monument. The perfect geometry and flawless materiality of the piece reflect the inspiration of idealized digital design, in stark contrast with the grimness of the reality it represents. Beauty, technology and engineering collide with death and reality.

Behold the twin turbo, 6.3l, 900bhp, V12 Brabus 900 SUV – a modified Mercedes-AMG G65 and one of the most powerful SUV’s on the planet.

Withy upgraded braking, suspension and forged steel 23in wheels, the G-wagon accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 secondsup to a top speed of 270km/h.

Only ten exist and yours will cost a trifling $800,000 (€672, 580).

No word on the electric G-Wagon yet.

Behold: the Kreisel Electric G-Class – a rebranded, former V8 diesel Mercedes G-Wagon refitted with an all-electric powerplant. Capable of 0-100km/h in under 6 seconds and with a 300km range, the vehicle loses none of its heavyweight SUV chops.

For now, just a Schwarzenegger-approved prototype, but moving toward inevitable mass production.

A 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing – once the property of its sole owner, pilot and  US Merchant Marine, Sig Noygren – it’s been in dry storage since 1976.

From the Fire Engine Red paint and red plaid upholstery, the car (with just 32,239 miles on the clock) remains in its original state aside from custom enhancements, including a chronometer, altimeter, and thermometer, as well as fog lights, an eight-track player, and a defroster fan.

Yours for around $1,000,000.
