LAMBORGHINI URUS

Need a vehicle that will fit the entire family inside, and still leave the average sports car in the dust? The Lamborghini Urus – an SUV to be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show in a few days – is it.

While the official details are still under wraps, reports say the Urus will run on a 5.2-liter V10 with 584 horsepower. And it’s likely to share its platform with the next-generation Porsche Cayenne.

Even with the lack of information, you have to admit an SUV from Lamborghini is intriguing.

2013 MERCEDES-BENZ G-CLASS

Eastern and Central European gangsters now have a new toy to roll in. The oddball Mercedes-Benz G-Class officially shows its ever-so-slightly redesigned face to the world today. True is looks a lot like last year’s model, but it’s hard to miss those arrays of LEDs underneath the headlights and new side mirrors.

Under the hood the G-Class boasts a 612-horsepower, 738-pound-foot twin-turbo V12 G65 AMG along with a 544-hp, twin-turbo V8 G63 option. Both of these powerplants are sitting above a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 in the carryover G550 (the G500 in Europe) and a diesel V6 in the Bluetec G350.

The 2013 G-Class will be available at European dealerships in June with U.S. sales to follow in August. Prices for the USA market haven’t been released just yet, but we do know that the European version will start at €85,311 for the G350, which we also won’t get (along with the cabriolet models). The current G550 starts at $107,000, so you should plan on adding a few grand to that to get in the 2013-model.

ROCKY ROADS CUSTOM VINTAGE BRONCOS

There’s no shame in owning a functional, economic commuter whip like the venerable Honda Civic… no shame that is, for the weekdays. Come the weekend, though, you’re in your favorite pair of well-worn jeans, a t-shirt, and ready to hop into said Civic for a weekend drive. Hmm, that doesn’t really work quite as well now, does it?

As a right of passage, every man should have to participate in the painstaking process of procuring and restoring a vehicle. Granted, not all of us are privy to the funds or time to do so, but there’s nothing wrong with the sentiment. Take this 1975 Rocky Roads Restored Ford Bronco, for example. There’s probably few men reading this looking at this Bronco and thinking they wouldn’t mind a few summer days behind the wheel of this rugged beauty.

The first generation Ford Bronco (1966-1977) was a vehicle of legends, a direct competitor to the Jeep CJ and International Scout, both fine 4×4′s themselves. They were all created in a day when the term SUV was not synonymous with offensively driving soccer mom’s and dismal fuel efficiency. You know, a day when they were called 4×4′s.

Rocky Roads Custom Vintage Broncos has restored this 1975 Bronco with a rebuilt 302 V8 engine (< 200 miles), Flowmaster exhaust, Optima battery, C-4 Transmission, Dana 20 transfer case, 4-wheel disc brakes, Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks, 3.5" suspension lift, 33" BFGoodrich Mud Terrain Tires, dual gas tanks, Warn winch, Dana 44 front axles, and an excruciatingly long list of other features and details.

Notably, Rocky Roads has also restored the Bronco's beautiful white finish interior, installed a massive sound system with iPod connection, secured it with a Viper alarm system, and put the entire vehicle through an $8000, two-stage, dark blue paint job. This is one undeniably gorgeous restoration.

There's nary another word to say save for conjured thoughts of loading up Van Morrison on the iPod and hitting the road… right now.
