When you’ve got one of the world’s most beautiful automobile designs in your heritage portfolio, it only makes sense to use it to draw attention to your most future-facing ideas.

Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson will be spicing up Forza Motorsport 4 with a featured role in the XBOX 360 game. With the game ready for release in October, this commercial has been released featuring the high tech M12 FAV Warthog from Halo, and the witty Jeremy Clarkson. Now gamers and auto enthusiasts are getting the best of both worlds. Interestingly, the Warthog won’t be the only vehicle that will receive Clarkson’s review. Apparently the game’s Autovista model will introduce players to a wide variety of unique vehicles.

This gigantic steel structure constitutes nearly half a kilometer of steel pipes, which were originally intended for use as a gas pipeline.

They may be a little too big to fit into your pocket, but that doesn’t make the Pocket Classics any less fun. Nope, they aren’t dinky cars – these mini zoomers are half-scale replicas of classics cars, ones you can actually ride around in… and a little less costly (but only by a little bit).
