The Porsche 911 is like wine. It gets better with age. And I’m saying this because the 911 basically looks the same after half a century. It’s a successful recipe that only the Stuttgart-based company managed to master, and it’s one of the reasons why the 911 is favored by so many tuning shops.

We’re all familiar with the likes of RUF and TechArt. The former has presented its first Porsche model in 1977, while the latter has been around since the 1980s. The number of Porsche-tuning companies increased recently, with 9ff and TOPCAR among the young guns that joined the party.

9ff filed for bankruptcy last year, leaving us to miss their extreme models. Moscow’s TOPCAR, on the other hand, is still alive and kicking through their Stinger program for the 911. Although seeing one of these Russian-modified sports car on U.S. roads isn’t very likely, a Cabriolet Stinger just popped up in Florida with a "For sale" sticker on its windshield. Let’s check it out and see what we’re dealing with.

Typically, cars that are 40 years old aren’t really worth anybody’s time. There are some exceptions, of course, and if you’re an avid Porsche fan that understands its racing history, this 1974 Porsche 911 race car could be well worth your time. This 911 Coupe was built to look and race just like the Famed 911 RSR, which Porsche built as a factory racer for European GT racing in the mid 70’s, and it is currently for sale on Ebay. Sure, it isn’t a real RSR and has 30 hours of racing time under its belt, but it is still well worth a look.

But other than, this 911 "RSR Build" should still perform like it’s new, at least when you take into account the amount of time and money that was put into this project to morph it into what it is today.

It’s a really neat project that doesn’t lack in modern-day performance capabilities. The only question is whether you’re prepared to shell out the necessary amount of greenbacks to pry it from the seller’s hands.

The Barrett-Jackson Auctions are always exciting to watch. The level of perfection in the restoration jobs, or perhaps the pristine level of OEM correctness in the majority of the vehicles rolling across the auction block can be stunning. The prices these cars sell at can be quite stunning as well with some climbing into the multiple millions range. With all the money and metal trading hands every year in Scottsdale, Arizona, it’s interesting to take a deeper look at what makes cars valuable.

Sure, it can be the rarity of a particular vehicle, like say a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa, but it can also be a culmination of options that make a particular vehicle more valuable than another, despite being similar in quality.

That’s where this infographic steps in. By looking at all 1,397 vehicles sold at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson auction and crunching a bunch of numbers related to their generic options make-up like exterior and interior color, transmission style, and year of production, the folks at H&H Classic Parts came up with some answers.

Going strictly off the numbers of what options sold for the most, the highest average price would belong to a 1950s era Plymouth with a manual transmission, black exterior paint, and a dark interior. Conversely, a 1980s or newer Pontiac with an automatic transmission, white paint, and a light-colored interior would theoretically have brought the lowest average price.

The reality of the auction is much less ambiguous, however. The highest-priced, crazy outlier that fetched the most dough was a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Sting Ray with a red on red color scheme. The lucky winning bidder paid $3.85 million with an additional 10 percent in fees going to Barrett-Jackson. Whew!

It seems like we are off to a good start with news from Ferrari this new year. Recently, we brought you stories of highly cherished, classic Ferraris that will hit the auction block in 2014 and a brand new LaFerrari popping up at a used car dealership . The asking price is three times that of a brand new La Ferrari .

If $3.2 million for a used LaFerrari seems rather steep, then you’ll likely be outraged by the roughly $3 million asking price of this used Ferrari Enzo . Yes, the F60 that preceded the LaFerrari.

Ferrari built just 400 examples of the Enzo, which makes it even rarer than the LaFerrari , which will see a 499 unit production run. This very example of the 2003 Ferrari Enzo is up for sale at Fusion Luxury Motors in Los Angeles with just 354 miles on its ticker.

It is the last of the V-12 Ferraris with fewer computers and electric motors. The Ferrari Enzo is widely regarded as one of the most awesome Ferrari models ever manufactured .

A car like the Ferrari LaFerrari is priced in the millions for a reason: it’s got all the latest technology you can find in the industry, it’s limited in quantity with only 499 units built, and It’s got a powerful engine.

Best of all, it’s built by Ferrari , arguably the most prestigious brand in the auto world today.

But for those with pockets deep enough to afford a LaFerrari, there’s always that possibility that buyer’s remorse kicks in, and apparently, it did to one of the supercar’s first owners.

The ad, which was posted on Semco GmbH, is looking for a buyer who can take the LaFerrari off of the hands of its current owner for a price of €2.38 million ($3.2 million). The amount isn’t a misprint. That’s almost three times the original price of the LaFerrari, which is absurd enough itself.

So if you’re in the market for the most powerful and expensive road car Ferrari has ever built, here’s your chance to get one. You’re going to pay a heck of a premium for it, but considering that the model is already sold out, the used car market is your best bet to get one.

The Pagani Huayra is one of the most exclusive supercars money can buy. The company founded by Horaccio Pagani produces these masterpieces of automobile design and engineering on a small scale. In year, Pagani is able to deliver just about a handful of cars.

The Huayra is made to order keeping in mind individual customer preference. Pagani would do all types of exterior finishes, leather and carbon fiber. After you’ve confirmed the order and the payment made, Pagani starts building the car. That takes quite a bit of time.

However, now if you wish to own a Pagani Huayra and haven’t got the patience to wait for at least a year to take delivery, you can checkout the used car market. One such Huayra finished in pearl white over carbon fiber is up for sale in Dubai. The asking price for this exclusive hypercar is $1.7 million.

The car seems to be in great condition with just 373 miles on the odometer. The interior is finished in white and black leather with a substantial expanse of naked carbon fiber. Most of the car’s rigid monocoque is built using layers of carbon fiber. Certain mechanical components are made out of magnesium and titanium.

Gemballa reminds me of some of the most hideous looking tuning jobs ever, but, once in a while they do make proper supercars stand out from the crowd. Gemballa also specialize in tuning Porsches .

One of the very popular models they have worked upon is the Carrera GT. Gemballa created a handful of unique special editions based on the Porsche supercar and called the Gemballa Mirage GT .

These one-off cars were sold out almost instantly and being unique pieces of German engineering, Gemballa made few bucks on every car sold. Now, a Gemballa Mirage GT ’Special Edition’ is up for sale in Germany.

Given the standard car would have cost about $450,000 in the U.S., the used Gemballa Mirage GT has a price tag of $780,000. That is a lot of money even for a Carrera GT that has been tweaked to produce 650 horsepower and is painted black with orange accents. The car has 12,000 miles on its odometer.

Before McLaren began manufacturing their own supercar, they collaborated with Mercedes-Benz and came up with the 600-plus horsepower McLaren Mercedes SLR . A limited number of cars went on sale in the first half the previous decade. A later iteration of SLR was a special edition called the SLR 722 Edition .

More V-8 supercar news. This time it is an American car with a massively powerful V-8 in the form of a Ford GT X1 TT . This highly modified Ford GT has been worked up on by Rich Brooks from the The GT Guy LLC. The engine in this car puts out no less than 1000 horsepower.

Ford built the Ford GT in 2004 as a replacement for the Le Mans winning Ford GT40. The company produced just over 4000 units of the GT. The standard car was powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 coupled with a supercharger.

The thirsty configuration was able to put down 550 horsepower. The car was designed along the lines of the original with flared rear haunches and low roof line. It was pretty unique car this.

Rich Brooks was able to double the output by adding a twin-turbo contraption to the already powerful 5.4-liter V-8 to a rare, limited edition Ford GT X1. Just 30 examples were ever built as part of a deal with the Genaddi Design Group.

The twin-turbo 1000 horsepower V-8 was then called the Ford GT X1 TT. At present, the car is in the U.S. with 3700 miles on the odometer and is up for sale for $450,000.

1988 Sledgehammer Corvette

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can do 267 mph. The McLaren F1 from the 1990s could reach 240 mph. Not just once or twice, but given a straight enough road and a private police force to keep traffic out of the way, these cars can do those speeds all day long. You would probably need to carry a fuel tanker and semi full of spare tires along, but that’s the cost of having that much fun.

The Mclaren F1 had been the fastest production car for some time. Until, the Bugatti Veyron came along. Even before the McLaren F1 was conceived, the Ferrari F40 was the fastest production car with a top speed of 201 mph. However, things could have been very different if Callaway had made a claim for the title.

The Sledgehammer, which was essentially a hopped up and seriously modded Corvette, was developed in the 1980s and featured some of the most advanced aerodynamics for its time. So, why did this Corvette require such sleek aerodynamics? Well, to allow the Callaway Sledgehammer to hit its mammoth top speed of would top out at 254.76 mph.The Sledgehammer hit this top massive top speed on October 26th, 1988 with John Lingenfelter behind the wheel.

The aptly named Sledgehammer achieved what the Bugatti Veyron could do almost two decades later. Now you have the opportunity to own the Sledgehammer — one of the rarest cars on Earth — as it is set to cross the auction block. Unfortunately, the winning bidder won’t be permitted to drive it on public roads.
