Cool Used Car of the Future: Brute Double Cab

AEV, American Expedition Vehicles, premiered something crazy at SEMA in 2011. They called it the Brute Double Cab. It was a prototype back then, but now AEV is preparing the custom Wrangler/pickup/SUV for production. Built in tandem between AEV’s Missoula, Montana and Wixom, Michigan garages, expect to see some cruising around driving over mountains by the end if this year. If you’re into something like the Brute, hopefully you’re not in a rush since the waiting list is already quite long according to AEV. Until then, you’ll just have to gawk at the pictures or get your four-door Jeep outfitted with one of their existing Wrangler packages.

Cool Used Car of the Future: Mongoose Motorsports Grand Sport

There’s a little town in Ravenna, Ohio that replicates the “Cobra Killer” at the Mongoose Motorsports garage. What’s the “Cobra Killer,” you ask? Time to get yourself ready for an history lesson. Back in the early 1960′s, the Shelby Cobra was one of the premier sports cars in racing. Chevrolet couldn’t let the Cobra go unmatched so they created the Corvette Grand Sport.

Feather-light at 1,900 pounds, the Grand Sport proved to be faster and more apt at taking corners than the Cobra. Unfortunately, only five Grand Sports were built after GM cancelled the program which meant the ultra rare American sports car had to compete in the prototype class against Porsche and Maserati. Almost 50 years later, the only kind of Grand Sport you’re bound to see is a Mongoose Motorsports replica in both coupe and roadster variations. Keep reading for the specs and more pictures.
