Here's What a $30 Million Car Crash Looks Like

  Here's What a $30 Million Car Crash Looks Like When a one-of-three classic racing Ferrari hits the wall, it's not going to be cheap.Andy Newall, driver of this incredibly rare and valuable Ferrari 250 GTO/64, was trying to navigate his way through traffic when he lost control onto the grass, sliding into the tire-lined rubber barrier. Newall was unharmed, but the same couldn't be said for his one-of-three race special.

If the journey is indeed more important than the destination, then the new EarthRoamer XV-HD could be worth every penny of its $1.5 million asking price. This off-road-ready recreational vehicle starts life as a heavy-duty four-wheel-drive Ford F-750 work truck equipped with a turbocharged diesel 6.7-liter V-8. Paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Brobdingnagian bent-eight makes 330 horsepower, which is arguably a paltry number given the host of heavy features fitted to the truck by EarthRoamer, a Colorado firm that has been building outrageous overland expedition vehicles (all wearing the XV designation) since 1998.

Equipped with chunky 46-inch-diameter Michelin XVL tires, Fox shocks, a rear air-spring suspension, an array of LED lights, a hydraulic winch that can pull up to 30,000 pounds, and 12 inches of ground clearance, the XV-HD is an off-road enthusiast's dream house on wheels. Although the engine's limited power peak surely restricts the XV-HD's left-lane prowess on the highway, its considerable 725 lb-ft of torque is key to helping the mighty machine maneuver its way off the beaten path, or when making its own.

Since the road less traveled often has few vacancies, the 35-foot-long XV-HD is equipped to maximize self-sufficiency. The living quarters are fully insulated and luxuriously appointed, offering all the conveniences of home in a slightly smaller package, including a washer and dryer, a full bathroom, and heated floorboards. A 115-gallon diesel fuel tank, a 250-gallon fresh-water tank, roof-mounted solar panels that can generate 2100 watts of electric power, and a 20,000-watt lithium-ion battery pack ensure that the XV-HD's driver and passengers can go days without seeing civilization.

Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept

  Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept It's just a concept for now.The best part of the truck is under the hood. Here, the smallest 5.3-liter V8 is thoroughly heated up with an intercooled supercharger based on the unit used on the LT4 engine in the Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1. Chevrolet claims it adds over 100 horsepower, which means the 5.3's standard 355 horsepower would jump to at least 455. That would also mean it makes 35 more horsepower than the available 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8. That does present the question of why GM wouldn't have simply supercharged the 6.2-liter, but we applaud the company for considering the potential of more than just the top-spec powertrains.
