Like people, some cars just aren't meant to be together. There's opposite ends of the automotive spectrum for a reason, and the two rarely intersect. For the more curious among us, Car Keys created a handful of unholy automotive mashups, a group of vehicular Frankenstein's Monsters that are as offensive as they are goofy.

McLaren Prius1

Sure, the McLaren P1 is a hybrid, but that doesn't mean it's as eco-friendly as a frumpy Prius. The P1/Prius blend is the easiest on the eyes out of all of them, but it isn't easy on the mind.

LaTwizari

Like the Prius1, this is another play on a hybrid hypercar. the aptly named LaTwizari is a meld of therarified LaFerrari and the commonplace Renault Twizy, resulting in something that's fairly ungainly. We're fans of the sharp Ferrari fascia, but not entirely convinced the tall canopy would pass federal crash tests.

Jultipla Renegade

Here's one comprised of cars from the same parent company. For starters, the Fiat Multipla isn't the most handsome car to use as a base, so the bulky Jeep DNA isn't doing it any favors. We do like the idea of the Multipla's usability with Jeep's rugged go-anywhere capability, so we'll chalk this one up as "interesting."

Gallery: Wild Trucks From the 2017 Lonestar Roundup in Austin Texas

  Gallery: Wild Trucks From the 2017 Lonestar Roundup in Austin Texas In its 15th year, the Lonestar Roundup is the yearly confab of (mostly) traditional hot rods, with a sprinkling of trucks and customs, too. It’s situated about 1300-miles from Los Angeles, and 1300-miles from Detroit in Austin, Texas, so it has become the opportunity for those intrepid west coast and Midwest rodders alike looking for more than a day-trip to mark the Roundup on their calendars. Let's face it, for those having built a rod or custom that can handle a 1000-2000-mile trip, the Roundup provides the bragging rights for the sheer fun of driving and making it. © Dominick Damato 0572017-Lonestar-Roundup-Wild-Trucks.

Robin X

If you squint, the porportions are almost spot-on from the donor Model X. Mix in the odd three-wheeled design of the Reliant Robin, and you've got one of the stranger mix-ups we've seen.

This Top Shelf Gin Is Infused With Old Harley-Davidson Parts .
I once tried a beer for no reason other than because it was named "Old Engine Oil." We've written about H-D's sales and marketing woes, but we absolve the motorcycle manufacturer of any responsibility for this one. The Archaeologist is the brainchild of Uwe Ehinger, who describes himself as a motorcycle archaeologist with a love of Harleys. "Every time I make a find of rare bikes, I wonder how to use every single part–because they deserve to be preserved," reads the web site.
