  • land, air and sea vehicles for you.
  • (electronic music)
  • - [Female Voice] Number 15.
  • - [Glen] The king of dawrf cars, Ernie Adams,
  • loved the original '49 Mercury so much
  • he decided to build his own from scratch.
  • The car, made famous originally by James Dean
  • in his movie Rebel Without a Cause,
  • soon became a household name.
  • Adams made his first dwarf car in 1965 out of the metal
  • from nine different refrigerators cut into pieces
  • and has worked to improve his craft from that day on.
  • Named Rebel Rouser,
  • it took just over five years to build this dwarf car
  • that looks like it came straight off
  • a miniature factory line.
  • Powered by a 1290 cc Toyota motor and a Toyota drivetrain,
  • this car can easily cruise at highway speeds
  • and tops out at around 100 miles per hour.
  • Everything except the mirrors and spotlights
  • were hand tooled by Adams with the utmost care.
  • Everything on this car looks exactly
  • like the original full size version.
  • Since this was all handmade,
  • you won't find one on any showroom floor.
  • But if he made one, you can too.
  • - [Female Voice] Number 14.
  • - [Glen] Patriot Campers took a GXL Toyota
  • Landcruiser dual cab which, let's be honest,

  • there is no stopping you on an adventure with this thing.
  • Pricing for the LC79 Supertourer starts out at $125,000.
  • - [Female Voice] Number 13.
  • - [Glen] Sometimes described as a jet ski with wings,
  • the Icon A5 is a stunning example of versatility.
  • With actual landing gear and Seawing platforms,
  • you have a landing pad on the ground
  • as well as in the water.
  • The versatility doesn't stop there either.
  • The wings fold up and the aircraft can be easily
  • transported by a car-pulled trailer.
  • The Icon A5 comes with a Rotax 912iS Sport engine,
  • supplying 100 horsepower to the aircraft.
  • The A5 was made with a Spin-Resistant Airframe,
  • making it safer for a new pilot.
  • Due to the engineering of the aircraft,
  • in the case of a stall,
  • the body resists spinning while maintaining manual control

  • (bass rift)
  • - [Female Voice] Number 11.
  • - [Glen] The AERO-X is a next generation idea for mobility.
  • Using tandem ducted fans, it can achieve a max height
  • of about 12 feet off of the ground.
  • The fan blades are also enclosed
  • in a shroud for added safety.
  • The AERO-X is about 15 feet long and about 7 feet wide
  • and has the ability to carry two passengers.
  • A naturally aspirated three-rotor rotary engine
  • powers the fixed-pitch carbon fiber fans
  • and runs off automotive grade fuel.
  • The entire vehicle is made from carbon fiber,
  • fiberglass composite and Kevlar
  • to ensure safety and strength.
  • The design of the AERO-X allows it to be piloted
  • similarly to driving a motorbike.
  • This allows for the movements to be intuitive
  • while piloting a vehicle in three dimensions.
  • Optimized for rugged environments like farms, ranches
  • and underdeveloped regions with no roads,
  • dirt and debris are not an issue
  • for the fan blades or the motor.
  • Due to the three dimensional operating area,
  • it's not recommended for mountainous regions
  • or anywhere the altitude changes quickly.
  • Pre-orders are available now
  • and the price is expected to be around $85,000.
  • - [Female Voice] Number 10.
  • - [Glen] This ultra minimalistic helicopter
  • is one of the lightest manned helicopters out there.
  • Measuring just over 20 feet long,
  • the Mosquito Air delivers performance,
  • reliability and ease of flight.
  • The Mosquito is made up of aircraft grade aluminum
  • to maximize weight savings
  • without reducing strength or safety.
  • The entire engine package only weighs 70 pounds,
  • increasing the weight savings even further.
  • The main rotor is controlled
  • from a floor-mounted joystick and a control mixer.
  • The tail rotor is controlled by foot pedals.
  • The compact 64 horsepower engine allows the Mosquito
  • to hit max speeds of up to 70 miles an hour
  • while consuming five galleons of fuel each hour.
  • The maximum range is 60 miles
  • and its normal cruising speed is 55 miles an hour.
  • While flying is normally an expensive hobby,
  • the Mosquito makes it a little cheaper,
  • costing only $20,000.
  • - [Female Voice] Number nine.
  • - [Glen] While this one looks more suited
  • for a post-apocalyptic wasteland than your city streets,
  • the Devel Sixty is a force to be reckoned with.
  • Produced by the same company
  • that made a 5,000 horsepower supercar,
  • its pedigree speaks for itself.
  • With a 6.7 liter turbo diesel V8,
  • the Devel Sixty pumps out a whopping 700 horsepower
  • and goes zero to sixty in 5.8 seconds.
  • It has full six wheel drive and independent suspension.
  • The tires are all on military rims
  • and the vehicle has seating for up to six.
  • The Devel Sixty comes standard
  • with height adjustable suspension,

  • is that everyone on the road will get right out of your way.
  • Pricing on this one starts out at $450,000.
  • - [Female Voice] Number eight.
  • - [Glen] The Rokon Trail-Breaker
  • has been around since the 60s
  • and has been making waves ever since.
  • The world's original and longest producing manufacturer
  • of all-wheel drive motorcycles,
  • Rokon has been delivering performance
  • for longer than some of their riders have been alive.
  • The Trail Breaker has unmatched versatility
  • for work or recreational activities
  • due to its lightweight design,
  • wide tires for any terrain,
  • and a high ground clearance for driving over obstacles.
  • The Trail-Breaker delivers sure-footed traction
  • with the tires and plenty of pulling power
  • thanks to the all-wheel drive system.
  • Superior torque from the all-wheel drive system
  • allows the Trail-Breaker to tow up to 2,000 pounds.
  • A little 208 cc engine pushing seven horsepower
  • allows the motorcycle to travel up to 35 miles an hour.
  • Price tag on this one is a modest $8,000.
  • - [Female Voice] Number seven.
  • - [Glen] Innovators at the NASA Johnson Space Center,
  • in collaboration with an automotive partner,
  • have developed the Modular Robotic Vehicle or MRV for short.
  • The vehicle is completely electric
  • and has no mechanical connections to the propulsion,
  • steering or brake systems.
  • Instead the driver relies on control inputs
  • being converted to electrical signals
  • and transmitted by wire to the motors in the vehicle.
  • The MRV is driven by four independent wheel modules
  • called e-corners.
  • Each wheel can be rotated 180 degrees on its steering axis.
  • You could literally drive 180% sideways
  • and parallel park the car downtown.
  • The MRV was made to learn about and develop new technologies
  • that could be applied to future Rover expeditions.
  • While those technologies will be applied in future Rovers,
  • for now, we get to reap the benefits
  • of those new technologies in the MRV.
  • While the MRV won't be for sale any time soon,
  • you could license the technology used in the MRV
  • and create your very own.
  • - [Female Voice] Number six.
  • - [Glen] The Seabreacher is the adrenalin junkie's
  • best friend out on the water.
  • With its design similar to a crazy mash up
  • of a fish and a fighter jet,
  • the looks won't be the only thing that grabs your attention.
  • Semi-submersible, the Seabreacher is capable
  • of diving down under the surface of the water
  • and rapidly rising upward, breaching through the surface.
  • The clear acrylic canopy allows the pilot and passenger
  • a clear view of everything above and around them.
  • A second underwater view port
  • gives you vision of everything underneath you as well.
  • Unlike conventional watercraft,
  • the Seabreacher operates more like an aircraft
  • with control over pitch, roll and yaw.
  • This allows the vessel to carve left and right,
  • jump over or dive under waves
  • and even do barrel rolls under water.
  • The Seabreacher was designed with
  • self-righting weight distribution.
  • The wing and engine weight is all located low in the vessel
  • so even if you find yourself upside down,
  • you'll quickly roll around to right side up.
  • Pricing on this one starts out at around $80,000.
  • - [Female Voice] Number five.
  • - [Glen] If you happen to be planning
  • an expedition to the Arctic Circle,
  • you might wanna bring this tank of a vehicle with you.
  • The ARKTOS evacuation craft was originally made
  • for offshore oil rigs in the Arctic
  • in case anything ever went wrong.
  • But it has since been used
  • in many different rescue fashions.
  • The ARKTOS evacuation craft can carry over 50 passengers
  • on board and can traverse many different types of terrain.
  • The craft gave up wheels for a track system,
  • not only to increase mobility
  • but also to increase passenger seating
  • by eliminating all the extra components
  • that come with a standard drivetrain.
  • Each track is powered by its own
  • 260 horsepower Cummins Diesel Engine.
  • On land, the engines are linked through hydraulic motors
  • and propel the ARKTOS to speeds of up to 10 miles an hour.
  • While in the water, the vessel operates
  • more like a jet ski using a water jet
  • combined with a 360 degrees steerable nozzle.
  • It propels the craft at speeds up to six knots.
  • The tracks, which are covered in spikes,
  • allow the ARKTOS to traverse any type of icy terrain
  • and climb 34 degree inclines.
  • The price tag on this one is getting up there.
  • Around $3 million.
  • - [Female Voice] Number four.
  • - [Glen] It's slick,
  • it's futuristic,
  • and it flies.
  • The Blackfly is another breakthrough innovation
  • in personal flight.
  • The future is now.
  • And with enough luck,
  • flying vehicles will be everyone's mode of transportation.
  • Being all electric,
  • the Blackfly causes no emissions during use.
  • Not only that but it comes with a vertical takeoff
  • and landing system so you can get up in the air
  • and back down on the ground
  • even with limited space to maneuver.
  • It also has cruise control
  • if you'd rather stare out the window
  • and just enjoy the ride.
  • It has a takeoff and landing assist system
  • and if you're feeling really fancy,
  • it has a return-to-home feature
  • where it will take you home and land itself.
  • The Blackfly is controlled by an intuitive joystick system
  • and multiple helpers for the uneasy pilot.
  • It achieves lift with eight propellers
  • mounted on the front and back wings.
  • It comes standard with a ballistic parachute
  • should the need to bail out arise.
  • And a low powered glide mode
  • so hopefully you won't have to bail.
  • Pricing has not been released on this plane
  • but they say it will be comparable
  • to the price of a new SUV.
  • - [Female Voice] Number three.
  • - [Glen] During a time when aerodynamic knowledge
  • was still new and the art deco style was everywhere,
  • Orley Ray Courtney took a 1934 Henderson Streamliner
  • model KJ motorcycle and designed and handcrafted
  • an aerodynamic shell that encased the entire motorcycle.
  • The upgrades he made to the motorcycle
  • didn't stop just at the stunning design.
  • It featured 10 inch wheels and high profile balloon tires
  • sourced from the aircraft industry
  • to give it a silky-smooth ride.
  • The modified chassis included hydraulic brakes
  • and a modified Henderson KJ fork in front
  • and a modern rear independent suspension.
  • It has a car-like dashboard,
  • a large headlamp that move with the steering,
  • and a raked-back screen that deflected air
  • onto the rider's chest.
  • This one of a kind motorcycle would be extremely hard
  • to get a hold of since it spends most of its time
  • at the Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich, New York.
  • - [Female Voice] Number two.
  • - [Glen] Though it may look like Jawas
  • are about to jump out and start scavenging for parts,
  • this is no sandcrawler.
  • It's the JL421 Badonkadonk,
  • or just Donk for short.
  • This thing is built like a tank
  • and it's definitely not street legal in most states.
  • But then again, who's gonna stop this tiny tank?
  • The Donk is one of a kind armored
  • land cruiser recreational tank.
  • It can transport up to five people
  • internally or on the roof.
  • It can be piloted from the inside
  • or from an exposed standing position through the hatch.
  • It comes with a 1,000 watt sound system
  • so everyone can hear your mobile tank party
  • a mile before they see you.
  • And of course, it has a pyro technique effect system
  • with optional rocket pods.
  • The outside of the vehicle is covered in light armored steel
  • providing you with ample protection from stray blaster fire.
  • Lucky for you there's no need
  • for deep space travel to Tatooine for one of these.
  • They can be found on Amazon starting at $20,000.
  • Before we show you our number one pick,
  • don't forget to comment down below
  • and let us know which one of these vehicles
  • will jumpstart your next adventure.
  • - [Female Voice] Number one.
  • - [Glen] The jet powered glider built for one
  • has to be one of the most stylish ways to get around.
  • With a jet engine powering the glider from take off,
  • after adequate altitude is achieved,
  • the engine is turned off
  • and it can be flown as an unpowered glider.
  • It's only seven feet long but has a wingspan of 32 feet.
  • You pilot the glider from a prone position at the center.
  • Turning is as simple as shifting your weight
  • and using a few handles to control the rudder.
  • Underneath where you lay, there's a jet engine.
  • With considerable separation
  • from the walls of the engine pod
  • in order to permit better cooling
  • and prevent excessive fire risk,
  • most of the glider is made from fiber reinforced plastic
  • with a wooden skeleton,
  • making the thing rather light, weighing only a 150 pounds.
  • The glider can reach speeds up to 75 miles an hour
  • and has a passenger weight limit around 110 pounds.
  • Unfortunately for us,
  • there are no plans for this glider to be mass produced,
  • nor would the blueprints be freely available
  • due to the safety risks associated
  • with inexperienced pilots.
