This Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell has been in the making for almost 3 years. At one time, this SLS AMG E-Cell was nothing more than a mere concept, but now it’s slated for release in 2013. Like the electric Jaguar C-X75, the SLS AMG has four electric motors powering each of its tires and lots of power. 528 horses of power to be more precise and another 649 lb/ft of torque. Unlike the Jag, this Mercedes is a bit louder….notice the paint job? The petrol-version of this gull-winged bad boy costs around $200,000 meaning the electric version will be terrifyingly expensive.

Over the weekend you may have seen Jeff Gordon’s stock car flip over a handful of times and then land on its roof in a violent crash at the Budweiser Shootout in Daytona. Here’s a video. Gordon walked away unscathed, but it goes to show you how important safety is in a sport where cars are going 190+ MPH.

Blow out candles on birthdays. Set off fireworks on the Fourth of July. Eat a turkey on Thanksgiving. There are timeless traditions that happen year after year after year. Flipping cars or burning couches during celebrations/riots is something that happens too. Tradition? Not so much. There may have not been any riots following the New York Giants Super Bowl win, but let’s say a riot did happen to break out. Signs would have been ripped out of the concrete, police officers armed with shields and batons would try to quell the madness and cars would be flipped, possibly set on fire.
There’s nothing good about riots, the destruction and inevitable clean-up can cost millions of dollars. However, if a riot was to break out, it should be a new tradition to only flip certain types of cars. Flipping a bread truck would be pretty epic, but that would be selfish. The darn thing is so heavy it would probably take an intricate pulley system to get it back on its wheels. If you find yourself in a swarm of people trying to overturn a car, make sure it’s lightweight and a late model. Seeing your brand new Fusion or 3-Series flipped would probably ruin your day, if not week/month. This is why we’ve compiled a list of recommended lightweight, compact cars to flip.
Except for a few vehicles we’ve included to flip out of principle for being ugly or just automotive failures, all these cars are featherweights. And by featherweights, we mean under 2,600 pounds. That’s like Walrus-light. No, it’s like baby hippopotamus-light. Keep reading for the entire list.
Tesla Motors, the electric car manufacturer is bringing something new to the crossover market and it’s called the Tesla Model X. You may remember Tesla Motors for designing electric cars like the Model S or Roadster, but their latest whip is bigger, roomier and more practical. Tesla claims the Model X will “blend the best of an SUV with the benefits of minivan, as only an electric car can.” For the complete low down, keep reading below.
