The British Land Rover tuning specialists at Kahn Design unveils its latest creation – the Flying Huntsman 105 Defender.

Kahn added over 15 inches to the truck’s wheel base and front end, while adding six inches to its width for increased steadiness. Retrofitted fenders, wheel arches, headlamps, bumpers, grille, hood, side steps and 18-inch wheels enhance the durability of the vehicle, while the matte black finish adds nice sleek touch. Priced at £58,875 GBP (approximately $89,351 USD), the Flying Huntsman 105 Defender is available on a customized-to-order basis.
While the cost of a new Ferrari might be steep, you might want to prepare yourself for the price tag on this vintage beauty. The Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider is one of only 56 ever made — just 16 of which had open headlights — and has a storied history: Delivered new within Italy, it remained there until 1974 when it moved to Switzerland for 20 years. It recent years it has undergone full restoration by Ferrari’s own Classiche department, has been displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello and was even driven by Luca di Montezemolo himself in the parade at the Finali Mondiali in Valencia a few years ago. Now it’s going up for auction by RM Sotheby’s at Villa d’Este next month, and is expected to fetch an enormous sum based on the fact that the last time a California Spider was sold, it went for a record $18.5 million USD, and that was an unrestored model.

NEWS: Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shot Up in Atlanta / Baltimore Riots Looting Protesters Freddy Gray – Protest Erupts In Chaos A Police Cars
Lil Wayne’s tour bus took on gunfire in Atlanta early Sunday morning … TMZ has learned.
Wayne performed at Compound nightclub on Saturday night … and sources tell us the shooting went down shortly after 3:30 AM — minutes after Wayne’s 2 tour buses pulled away from the club.
We’re told Weezy and a few other Young Money execs and artists — including Lil Twist and Hood – were on board at least one of the buses at the time of the shooting. It appears no one was injured, and it’s still unclear if Wayne was on board the bus that was hit.
Law enforcement sources tell us immediately after the shooting the bus was driven to a nearby hotel, and that’s when someone in Wayne’s entourage called cops.
We’re told witnesses on the buses didn’t see much — their only description of the suspects is that they were in 2 white vehicles … a sports car (possibly a Corvette) and an SUV.
