  VLF Automotive X-Force Concept is a Chevrolet Colorado With a Hummer Halloween Costume Chevrolet Colorado Gets a Halloween CostumeThe X-Series is a re-bodied Chevrolet Colorado crew-cab short-box truck designed to evoke memories of the late, great Hummer brand. The redesign trims 15.7 inches from the Colorado's overall length, with a bit more coming off the rear than the front. This trim, a suspension hike, and larger 20-inch wheels and 35-inch tires improve approach/departure angles from 17.3/22.1 degrees to 44.7/48.0 degrees and ground clearance from 8.2 to 11.5 inches. The aggressive flares covering those big tires increase the body width to 82.4 from 74.3 inches. Other off-road kit includes a winch in front and recovery hooks all around.

Reimagining vintage cars is all the rage these days. Artisans like Singer and Icon have made a name for themselves redesigning and overhauling classic cars and trucks into their own image, retaining the original soul of the car while adding in a healthy dose of their own aesthetic. Now, it looks like David Brown Automotive is tossing its hat in the ring with a new reimagined Mini Cooper.

It's called the Mini Remastered, and it's a pint-sized follow-up to David Brown's enigmaticSpeedback GT. The build begins by taking a used Mini down to the bare sheetmetal, where the shell is de-seamed and smoothed out for a pure, sleek appearance. Despite the size, David Brown says the little coupe is chock-full of all manner of sound deadening to keep things calm on the inside.

2017 Volkswagen Passat

  2017 Volkswagen Passat Largely competitive, with an emphasis on large.Volkswagen’s recent emissions scandal has removed the efficient TDI diesel engine from the lineup, which used to be one of the more compelling reasons to consider a Passat. The two gasoline engines left on the order sheet are a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with a potent 280 horsepower, both pairing with standard six-speed automatic transmissions, although the V-6 gets one of the dual-clutch variety.

Inside, the interior is a blend of modern retro-chic, outfitted with a bowlful of brushed and milled aluminum components and special handmade touches. It's high-tech as well, featuring a full infotainment suite with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, push-button start, and remote locking.

Despite all the extra niceties, the Mini Remastered should be a blast to drive. The original 1,275cc four-cylinder is redone inside and out, now producing 78 hp, sent to the front wheels through a sharp four-speed manual transmission.

Seeing as this is a hand built car with a claimed 1,000 hours invested to each build, David Brown offers a huge range of customization for all tastes. A wide selection of wheels, leather, and fancifully-named paint colors are on tap, including A Whiter Shade of Pale (off-white), Bad Moon Rising (light gray), and Starman (metallic blue).

Considering the hours invested and bespoke options, the Mini Remastered will set buyers back upwards of $90,000, and will be produced in very limited numbers.
