Encyclopedia

Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

    You may not know German designer Luigi Colani, who is best known for creating sensuous sports cars and super-duper supersonic jets, but his, ahem, distinctive work lives on.

But the Torsus Praetorian takes it to another level, with a weapons-grade drivetrain and room for up to 35 seats. Or, if you’re so inclined, a dedicated Overlander variant already...

    The AMC Gremlin seems to pop up on a lot of lists of terrible cars—but was the Gremlin really as terrible as some might have us believe? We say no. Look back at the car’s history, and you’ll see that the Gremlin was a winner. To be fair, it’s easy to see why the Gremlin...
