When Matt Brown bought this Honda S600 from on online forum he knew exactly what to do next. The Honda didn’t even have an engine and needed plenty of rebuilding but Brown was up for the challenge. The original engine was 600CC’s but with a little TLC and time, this ride now rocks a 2007 CBR 1000RR and has done a complete 360 from its for-sale days. Check it out right here:

Monstrous Sound: The Zagato Mostro

image

Meet the Zagato Mostro. Not only does this ride share a lineage with all of our favorites (DB4, V12 Vantage, Raptor Etc.), it’s a tribute to 1950s Maserati. The marque has recently turned 100 and the Italian design house Zagato has created this limited edition beast especially for the occasion. The Mostro makes its debut at the upcoming Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d”Este and pays specific homage to the the 1957 Maserati 450 S Coupe Zagato ‘Monster’. Check out some specs on the Mostro:

– semi-automatic six-speed gearbox

– double wishbones at the front and rear

– pushrod spring and shock set-up

– 19-inch wheels over ‘large’ disc brakes

– nostalgic design

Specs aside, the sound of this thing is all you really need to know about it. Listen below:
