Rinspeed has produced some of the most bizarre concept cars ever conceived and the Bedouin is one of the most intriguing.

First presented to the world at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2003, the Rinspeed Bedouin is based on a 996-generation Porsche 911 and received a host of bizarre exterior and interior modifications. Most notably, it can morph into a pickup truck in a matter of seconds.

The rear of Rinspeed’s concept sports a unique roofline that folds away and turns the rear luggage compartment into a pickup truck-esque bed. The operation of this roof is powered by two small electric motors while the tailgate itself is also electrically-operated and extends out by up to 45 cm.

This isn’t the only interesting aspect of the car. In a bid to ensure the Bedouin turned as many heads in Geneva as possible, Rinspeed gave it a striking chameleon paint job, jacked up the ride height by 15 cm, and fitted a set of high-profile tires.

Comprehensive modifications were also made to the cabin, as this video from Barcroft Cars reveals. For example, new leather adorns the seats, transmission tunnel, dashboard, and parts of the door panels. Rinspeed also placed thousands of individual crystals on the door panels to give the concept some added bling. As if these mods weren’t enough, Rinspeed also chopped off the top section of the steering wheel and replaced it with two Porsche gear knobs.

The 2021 Honda Civic Type R has finally touched down in Australia sporting the same updates as in other markets.

One of the key upgrades made to the 2021 Civic Type R is new software for the Adaptive Damper System that evaluates road conditions ten times faster than before, resulting in improved damper reactions for better handling and ride quality. Additionally, the rear bushings for the lower B-arm have been stiffened to provide an eight per cent improvement in lateral loads and the front features new compliance bushings and new lower-friction ball joints that trigger sharper steering feel.

Honda’s engineers have also improved braking performance with the fitment of new two-piece floating front brake discs and brake pads with a more fade-resistant pad material.

Powering the class-leading hot hatch is a 2.0-liter turbocharged VTEC four-cylinder that pumps out 306 hp (228 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. While these figures are the same as previous model years, the 2021 model’s larger grille decreases coolant temperature by up to 10 degrees Celsius in high-demand situations, such as track days. Coupled to this engine is a six-speed manual transmission with a rev-matching function and a new teardrop-style gear knob.

New for 2021 is an Active Sound Control feature that enhances the engine note during Sport and +R modes. The hot hatch also launches with the new Honda LogR performance datalogger that combines the car’s onboard computer and sensors with a smartphone application to help drivers monitor and record various performance parameters.

In addition to receiving a new gear knob, the cabin also includes an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. The Racing Blue paint pictured is also a new addition to the range and joins Rally Red, Crystal Black and Championship White.

Aussie pricing for the 2021 Civic Type R starts at AU$54,990 (US$41,797) before on-road costs and delivery fees, representing a AU$3,000 (US$2,280) price hike over the outgoing model.

Christmas is one week away and that means automakers are heavily promoting year-end sales events with a holiday twist.

Many of them show spouses surprising their significant other with a new car. That’s not very realistic so Saturday Night Live decided to poke fun at Lexus’ December to Remember campaign.

Things start out innocently enough as a husband gives his wife the keys to a new Lexus RX. After the initial surprise wears off, the wife says “Are you f-ing kidding me, Nathan? Did you seriously buy a car without asking me?”

Thing quickly go downhill as the wife explains they don’t have the money to afford it, much to the surprise of their son. It’s then revealed the husband hasn’t been working since March and it wasn’t because of COVID-19, because he was fired in 2019.

The laughs continue as the husband thought he got a deal on the RX as only $3,999 was due at signing. His wife asks how much the monthly payment is and it’s revealed the husband didn’t know there were monthly payments.

The skit ends as a neighbor, who recently loaned the husband money, comes over to demand payment after seeing their shiny new Lexus. He then reveals the wife has been cheating and the husband has a thing for his son’s girlfriend.

It’s a humorous take on a car commercial staple and a good remember that surprising your wife with a new car might not be the smartest idea.
