Another little known, but very fun, fact about David Bowie that has just started to make the rounds is that he designed the above Chrome-Finish Mini back in 1998-99 to celebrate the brand’s 40th Anniversary. Outstanding! You can read more about this car, including a collection of hilariously snarky quotes from Bowie, over at Jalopnik!
This Honda S2000 is driven in the opening sequence of the 2003 Universal film 2 Fast 2 Furious, a movie that offers a glimpse into the lifestyle excesses of some modern day tuner car aficionados. Painted a custom shade of Pink, the roadster was equipped with a special ground effects kit and 18-inch rims for the scene in which is jumps a bridge. A Paxton supercharger was fitted to increase its horsepower rating from 240 to 340.

Over at Jalopnik, this Russian PT Cruiser Wedding Limo (yes, I just typed that) is taking a lot of shit for being what it is. But, really, isn’t this car actually all kinds of awesome? It reminds me of Disneyland. I just love it!

We all live in a Yellow-Infinti-Marine! From what I can gather by doing a rough Google Translation of the Portuguese text on the above-linked site, this custom-designed Infinti SUV was created by an unnamed Russian Beatles fan in the style of the iconic designs created for The Beatles‘ Yellow Submarine album and film by artist and illustrator Heinz Edelmann.

August 31st is International Bacon Day! Did you know that? I was actually unaware of the pending festivities until someone pasted a photo this rad Bacon Wrapped Car on my FaceBook page. Apparently Ford Fiesta drivers now have a new way to express their Bacon love! The automotive giant is offering buyers of 2014 model Fiesta the opportunity to have their new cars wrapped in one of four vinyl graphics, each featuring delcious Bacon. Designs range from a few bacon racing stripes to a hog-wild helping of bacon graphics wrapped around the entire car. This is definitely not a joke and you can check out all of the Bacon Designs on Ford’s Fiesta Graphics page, at This Link!

Here is a car that you definitely have to hand wash (or should we say ‘hand shampoo’?) only. No clue as to whether the fur covering keeps the car’s interior warmer.
