As gear heads, we usually want to lower our cars, but lifted cars are getting more and more popular nowadays, so I thought I’d collect the 10 best lifted cars that I’ve come across online. From Mighty Car Mods to The Grand Tour, these cars are lifted and ready to wage war.
5. Jeremy Clarkson’s Bentley Continental GT From Madagascar
This off-road-ready British luxury car will be used by Jeremy Clarkson in the upcoming episode of The Grand Tour Madagascar Special. While we know very little about it, judging from previous builds of the same nature, it has all-wheel drive and armour protecting its vulnerable belly from harm as it skips over terrain. Watch it in action in the video below:
4. Mighty Car Mods ‘Mod Max’ Nissan Silvia S15
In partnership with the Mad Max film, Marty and Moog from the popular YouTube car show put their heads together and created this incredibly aggressive looking Japanese sports car. Using an S15 as a base but ripping out its heart and replacing it with an LS1 V8, this rear-wheel driven off-roader struggles for traction thanks to insane torque. Despite this, it’s ready for the apocalypse with shielding over the windows and spare tyres balanced on top. Thick off-road tyres are the cherry on top of this insane looking machine.
3. Matt Farah’s Safari Porsche 911 From The Smoking Tire
Matt Farah has been entertaining us for years with his YouTube show, The Smoking Tire. But as his wants from cars are changing and he starts to get a few back issues thanks to driving os many low and stiff cars, he thought a Safari build was the order of the day. He ended up with this great little Safari 911 which he daily drives around California. Here, it can combat the poor roads and while the manual clutch is heavy, is gives good ride comfort. It can now more than likely be found in his new building, Westside Collector Car Storage.
2. Dodge Mega Ram Runner
Based on a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500, this behemoth of a truck was built by Diesel Sellerz and was showcased at the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas. It was built from two separate trucks, plus a Dodge Durango, and has seating for six people. The roof is so long, it has three sunroofs. Under the bonnet it has a 600 horsepower Cummins engine which feeds power to a custom-built Ford 4R100 Transmission before an AxleTech T600 Transfer Case which sends power to each of the four wheels.

1. DeLorean DMC-12 (not from Back To The Future thankfully)
This DeLorean is very special. Not only because it’s one of the few that haven’t had a flux capacitor strapped to it, but because the owner has lifted it to monster truck status. It’s stood on a 12-inch suspension lift, has a side-exit exhaust, and huge Interco TSL Bogger Super Swamper tyres. But before you start saying it’s sacrilege and shouldn’t have been carried out on one of this rare sports car, just know one thing. This DMC was built from a wrecked example and sits alongside several others in the same owner’s collection, including a limousine version, and even a hovercraft.
