Although the current-generation Dodge Viper is anything but slow, Chrysler has been struggling to sell its halo car ever since it launched it in late 2012. Viper sales have been so low throughout 2013 and 2014 that Dodge even had to halt production for two months and lay off 91 employees. The Viper’s struggle continues through 2014, with some 600 unsold units on dealer lots, which is why Dodge has decided to knock $15,000 off the sticker price in order to spur sales.

The discount is available for all unsold 2014 model year Vipers and incoming 2015 Vipers, putting their MSRP at $84,995. But the good news doesn’t stop here. In addition to this discount, Dodge is also offering $15,000 coupons to recent gen-five — 2013 to 2014 model year — Viper buyers who want to trade their model in on a 2014 or 2015 Viper . All told, if you own either a 2013 or 2014 Viper, you can essentially purchase a brand-new, updated model for $69,995 after the price cut and trade-in incentive. Quite the bargain, huh?

Cutting $15,000 off the sticker is just one step toward improving Viper sales. The company is also planning to open Viper sales to all Dodge dealers and market the sports car with the rest of the lineup and not as a stand-alone SRT vehicle. More than 2,300 Dodge dealers will be able to sell the 2015 Viper.

Car collecting has taken on a whole new meaning thanks to one British dentist who amassed the largest private collection in Britain with multiple warehouses stocked full of antique Jaguars , Bentleys , Austins, and Minis . However Dr. James Hull’s collection is now in the care of Jaguar Land Rover after the automaker purchased the entire fleet for an undisclosed amount.

The collection consists of 543 classic cars dating back to the 1930s and is estimated to be worth some £100 million, or roughly $168,346,500 U.S. dollars as of August 7, 2014. Among the collection are cars like Sir Winston Churchill’s Austin, Lord Mountbatten’s Mini Traveller , and even Sir Elton John’s Bentley.

Besides the sheer number of vehicles, the collection’s breath of variety is also intriguing. It ranges from million-dollar Jaguars down to the must humble Morris Minors, a plane-Jane economy car produced from the 1940s through 1970s.

Included are even pristine examples of a super-rare 1950s-era Jaguar XKSS and a D-Type worth more than $6.7 million together. Hull’s vehicles even include classic pedal cars dating back to the 1920s to present day. Perhaps the most special one is a Ferrari example that was hand-built in Maranello, Italy in the 1950s.

It’s unclear what Jaguar Land Rover plans to do with the massive collection, but it’s a sure bet that all 543 cars are in good hands. Perhaps those vehicles not wearing a Jaguar badge will end up at auction, possibly fetching a profit for the British automaker. Be sure to check out the video below the jump.

Back in 1989, Land Rover mounted an expedition to trek across the toughest lands the United States had to offer: the expansive Great Divide. The geological entity stretched from Colorado down to New Mexico and hosted numerous old mining towns established in the 1860s. Land Rover used the Great Divide Expedition to launch the then-new 1990 Range Rover. The SUVs used for the expedition were completely stock, save for more aggressive tires, bumper-mounted winches, and roof racks. Over 12 days the expedition moved south through the Great Divide while conquering unpaved or non-road surfaces during more than 75 percent of the distance.

Fast forward to 2014 and Land Rover is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the original Great Divide Expedition with a second running. The expedition will use 2014 Range Rovers to relive the experience. What’s more, Land Rover has teamed up with Tread Lightly!, the original sponsor of the first expedition, to recreate a 1990 Range Rover expedition vehicle from a restored Rover.

That restored replica is now up for auction on Ebay Motors. As of 8/5/2014, the bid is sitting at $30,001. The proceeds of the charity auction will benefit Tread Lightly!’s programs designed to protect and enhance outdoor recreation areas across the country. The auction went live starting August 4, 2014 and runs through 9 p.m. August 14, 2014.

We’ve got a full run-down of the one-off 1990 Range Rover Great Divide Expedition replica vehicle up for sale.

Someone’s being a little sneaky with a certain 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that one Ferrari expert has called out as a replica. You might remember that 250 GTO that popped up on Mobile.de a few weeks ago and came with a price tag of $64 million . The car received worldwide coverage because 1), it’s a Ferrari 250 GTO and 2), it costs $64 freakin’ million!

But Marcel Massini, regarded as the world’s leading Ferrari historian, is calling BS on the $64-million 250 GTO. "It’s a replica," Massini told. "I can tell you that with 100 percent certainty. I know where all of these cars are today. And this is not one of the original GTOs."

That part about knowing where all 39 250 GTOs are is apparently what separates Massini from the other Ferrari experts out there. Not only does he know where each one is, but he has photos and detailed histories of them. All 39 of them.

Massini also pointed out the car’s rather astronomical price tag as an indication that it’s fake, saying that anybody who owns a 250 GTO will use different methods to sell a car that’s expensive and incredibly rare. In short, posting it on a website isn’t one of them.

I personally have had no business dealings with Mobile.de so its hard to tell if they themselves were duped into selling a replica. The site has yet to issue any comments on Massini’s allegations, but it’s hard to go against someone who most agree is the authority on Ferrari’s history.

Updated 05/08/2014 @ 12:00 p.m.: Apparently the Ferrari expert was right, as the ad has been removed from mobile.de.

I don’t think I’m the only one who has been disappointed with the underwhelming aftermarket programs given to the Subaru BRZ . I’m not expecting anywhere close to the level of a Nissan GT-R , but somewhere with equally impressive performance gains relative to its power wouldn’t hurt. The same disappointing trend continues with the BRZ "Albino Rhino" by RallySport Direct.

To be fair, the BRZ Albino Rhino does have impressive aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades. I have no issues on how the BRZ looks because it looks incredible. The blue alloy wheels, in particular, are a perfect combination of saucy and sexy.

The issue here is the engine upgrade, which isn’t really much, if I’m being honest. RallySport Direct added a Vortech supercharger, which sounds really nice, but at the end of the day, even the supercharger upgrade wasn’t enough to give the BRZ "Albino Rhino" the kind of power its animal namesake is famous for.

While Ferrari needs no introduction, Brabham is a name some of you might not remember so well. Founded by Jack Brabham, who died earlier this year aged 88, and Ron Tauranac, Brabham spend three decades in Formula One , in which it won four drivers’ championships and two constructors’ titles. Its first successful campaigns, and the only ones to bring both the drivers’ and constructors’ championship, came in 1966 and 1967. Although it won two more drivers’ titles, Brabham failed to win the constructors’ championship for the third time. However, the Brits came close on many occasions. 1970 was an important year for Brabham. Although it only managed fourth position at the end of the season, the team lost its number one driver, Jack Brabham. The man that drove the race cars built by his own hands retired from racing following the Mexican Grand Prix. The 1970 Brabham-Cosworth Ford BT33 was the last F1 car he had driven during an official event, making it that much more important to the company, second to only the Repco-powered single-seaters that brought the 1966 and 1967 championships.

In this car, Brabham won one race and scored three more podiums, while teammate Rolf Stommelen added a further third-place finish. Brabham, one of eight teams to use Ford’s DFV engine that year, ended the season behind Lotus, Ferrari and March, but ahead of McLaren , BRM and Matra. What made the BT33 such a competitive racer? Read on to find out.

There are only so many superlatives you can throw in the direction of the Ferrari 250 GTO . To this day, it’s still considered as the quintessential Ferrari . More importantly, the 250 GTO is also revered as one of the greatest cars of all time. The 250 GTO is treated with such high reverence that the car usually fetches millions on the auction block. We’ve seen a 250 GTO LWB California Spider Competizione fetch $11 million. Before that, a 250 LM scooped up $14.3 million. And before we forget, a pair of 250 GTOs have been sold for $32 million and $52 million, respectively. Here’s the takeaway: if you own a Ferrari 250 GTO, you’re in possession of a car that can net you at least $30 million. There is no shortage of people willing to spend that amount, maybe even double that, to own a piece of Ferrari history. That being said, a 1962 250 GTO has found itself on Mobile.de, considered as Germany’s biggest online marketplace. It’s a legitimate site that has seen its share of million-dollar transactions so there’s little reason to suggest that this isn’t an authentic 250 GTO.

Its seller, GT Golden Tower Real Estate and Luxury Gmbh, indicates that this red 250 GTO has traveled 15,000 kilometers (9,320 miles), which means that its owner has made relatively good use of it. But the car still looks to be in great shape. One photo even shows the car’s V-12 engine to be in immaculate shape. The interior also looks polished and show quality.

Everything about this 1962 250 GTO looks to be in order. Well, almost everything. See, GT Golden Tower thinks this 250 GTO can sell for €47.6 million, which is about $64 million based on current exchange rates on 7/29/2014.

That’s a lot of money, but as history has shown, it’s not an absurd figure for a Ferrari 250 GTO.

The 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance saw the debut of the Zagato TZ3 Stradale , an extremely rare sports car designed by Italian design house Zagato to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Alfa Romeo. It was so rare that Zagato only built nine of these models, one of which, has found its way into the hands of Ferrari of Newport Beach. Naturally, the dealership is selling the model for $699,900. It’s a rather fair price for such an exclusive sports car that’s only three years old.

This particular TZ3 Stradale comes with a rather lusty Metallic Brown exterior finish to match the Chestnut leather interior. It also looks brand new, judging by how polished it is in these photos. Any dealership worth its salt would see to it that the cars they sell, especially something as rare as the TZ3 Stradale, should look the part of fresh new models. Props to Ferrari of Newport Beach on that end.

The only hesitation I have with this model is the price tag. Sure, there are only nine examples all over the world — this one is No. 7 of 9 — and it really is as good as brand new with only 317 miles on the ticker.

But it’s still one Benjamin short of $700,000. If I had that money, I’d waste no time buying it. Unfortunately, I have neither the funds nor the resources to make that purchase, so hopefully, someone with an impeccable taste in exotics can take that home with them.

SUV s are a great thing, but sometimes you just need more. That’s where this comes in. It started life as a 2000 Ford Excursion and was transformed into the colossal beast you see here by a company called JD3 out of Tucson , Arizona. Affectionately nicknamed Rockzilla, this goliath is powered by a stock 6.8-liter V-10 backed by a stock transmission, transfer case, and axles directly off the donor Excursion. There are plenty of aftermarket parts, however, like the 54-inch Michelin tires and hand-welded exoskeleton.

This isn’t just a one-off vehicle though. JD3 has built more than 75 Rockzillas, all custom ordered to the buyer’s desires. Don’t want to wait four months to have yours built? Luckily, this one currently up for auction on Ebay. For a cool $72,000, this particular Rockzilla is ready to roll over nearly any obstacle in its path.

Ford Motor Company has been synonymous with racing ever since the early days for the Model T, but no era brought as much success as the 1960s. By 1969, Ford already had four consecutive 24 Hours of Le Mans wins with the GT40, while the Mustang was putting up a good fight in the Trans-Am series. The Blue Oval also dominated the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, as the almighty Torino Talladega had won the championship in both 1968 and 1969.

However, with Dodge and its Charger Daytona growing increasingly stronger throughout 1969, Ford planned to bring its very own "aero warrior" to the party in the form of a modified, much more aerodynamic Torino. Thus the King Cobra was born, a prototype motivated by the famous Boss 429 engine and capable of delivering enormous amounts of downforce on the oval track. Unfortunately, as NASCAR increased the minimum number of cars produced for the public from 500 to 3,000 for a vehicle to qualify for the Sprint Cup, Ford abandoned the project and left Dodge and Plymouth to dominate the series for the next three years.

44 years later (as of 7/7/2014), the Torino King Cobra prototype resurfaced to regain its glory as a near-mint, classic collectible with an intriguing story attached to its name.
