1966 Dodge Charger

1966 Dodge Charger

The original Charger that started a phenomenon

The Dodge Charger was Chrysler Corporation’s more luxurious response to the Mustang, billed as a mid-size fastback coupe similar in size and shape to the AMC Marlin. It was based on the Coronet but shared none of its visuals and spawned a number of super quick versions that tortured just about any early Mustangs.

The year was 1966 when Dodge finally joined the fastback muscle car party with the Charger. It was based on the B-body platform and was previewed in an ad that ran during that year’s Rose Bowl which talked about the new "Leader of the Dodge Rebellion."

The original Charger was a more refined coupe sitting just under the personal luxury category dominated by Ford’s T-Bird. That’s why performance wasn’t paramount from the get-go although the 426 Hemi engine was duly available. Also, Dodge quickly put the Charger on the track in the Nascar series, the car winning the 1966 NASCAR Grand National championship with driver David Pearson.

One of France's Most Famous Drivers Blasts The Sale Of One Of His Former Cars

One of France’s Most Famous Drivers Blasts The Sale Of One Of His Former Cars

Four-time Le Mans winner Henri Pescarolo got patriotic when it came to the sale of the Matra he drove to victory in 1972

Henri Pescarolo has been there and done it all. After a three-decade-long career as a driver, that yielded a plethora of sports car victories including four at Le Mans in the overall classification, he turned to team management and his Pescarolos were tantalizingly, better yet, painfully close to winning Le Mans in both 2005 and 2006 and ending Audi’s stranglehold on the legendary French race. It is, then, easy to see why when Pescarolo speaks, people listen and the 78-year-old was particularly dismayed at the Lagardere Group’s decision to put the car he drove to victory in the 1972 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a Matra MS670, up for public auction.

This 2018 Ford GT '67 Heritage Edition Could Change Hands for Millions

This 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition Could Change Hands for Millions

Here’s your chance to own a limited edition version of the already limited Ford GT supercar

One of the rarest versions of the Ford GT supercar is headed for the auction block, and it could fetch up to seven figures if everything goes as anticipated. A 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition can be all yours provided you have the pockets to afford it. One of these special edition models is headed to a Mecum Auctions event that will run from November 12 to November 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It’s expected to fetch a king’s ransom considering that used 2018 GT models are already fetching over $1 million in the used (super)car market. Even better, this isn’t your “standard” Ford GT; it’s a Heritage Edition GT that was launched in 2018 and comes with, among other exclusive touches, an engine coil cover that’s signed by drivers Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, the duo that claimed the Le Mans 24 Hours title back in 1967.

Superformance Donates Its MKII Shelby 289 Slab Side To Charity

Superformance Donates Its MKII Shelby 289 Slab Side To Charity

This 1962 model will be auctioned and proceeds will go towards the educational needs of underprivileged students

Superformance is known to create some classic builds that are priced like crazy, but the company has gone generous with one of their builds – the 1962 MKII Shelby 289 Slab Side. Superformance has donated the car to Petersen Automotive Museum for its upcoming digital gala that’s set to take place on September 26. The car is officially licensed by Shelby and built aesthetically and dimensionally correct to the original289 Cobras of the early 1960s. The only difference here is that the Superformance builds have modern-day mods complementing the classic styling. Isn’t that a win-win situation?

Classic Car for Sale: Rare 1986 Aston Martin DB6 Volante

Classic Car for Sale: Rare 1986 Aston Martin DB6 Volante

You won’t find this model up for sale a lot these days

The Aston Martin DB6 doesn’t get the love it deserves. In some ways, that’s because it succeeded the Aston Martin DB5, considered as the most iconic Aston Martin model ever made. When you’re a model that’s following a model as legendary as the DB5, expectations can be unreasonably high.

The DB6 was a great Aston Martin; it just wasn’t the DB5. Still, the DB6’s collectible status has increased over the years, in part because of how rare they are. Only 1,788 units were built over a five-year stretch, and of those 1,788 units, one unit is now available through British classic car restorer Bell Sport & Classic.

This particular model is a DB6 Volante, the drop-top version of the standard DB6. It’s more than 12 times rarer — only 140 units were ever made — than the standard coupe DB6, and while it has undergone several restorations in its lifetime, it remains in top-quality condition. Bell Sport & Classic didn’t reveal a price tag for this DB6 Volante, but prepare to spend six figures for a chance to bring home one of the rarest Aston Martin models in history.

This Spa-Winning Ferrari 550 GT1 Is The Most Expensive Car Sold At An Online Auction Ever

The RM/Sotheby’s Shift/Monterey sale remained within the bounds of the virtual world but the eye-watering price of this Ferrari is very real

Pedigree is what sells a racing car and this Ferrari 550 GT1 from the noughties is bathing in pedigree as the last V-12-engined Ferrari to win a high-profile 24-hour race and one of only 12 of its kind to be built by Prodrive in the UK.

Car for Sale: Super Rare 1 Of 3 1969 M505 Adams Brothers Probe 16

A car like this rarely hits the auction block so when it does, Benjamins tend to fly around

Car for Sale: Super Rare, Numbers Matching 1970 Shelby GT500 Fastback With Low Milage

Car for Sale: Super Rare, Numbers Matching 1970 Shelby GT500 Fastback With Low Milage

This rare 1970 Shelby GT500 looks cool in Acapulco Blue

The Mustang Shelby GT saga started in 1965 with the GT350, a sportier, lightweight version of the ’Stang. But Ford and Carroll Shelby took things up a notch in 1967, when he introduced the GT500, a not-so-light but significantly more powerful version of the Mustang. The GT500 remained in production as the range-topping Mustang until 1969, but unsold 1969 models were given 1970 identification numbers. With just 380 units rebadged for 1970, this fastback is hard to find, and low-mileage, well-maintained examples are extremely rare. If you’re looking for one, the folks over at Mecum Auctions are offering an example with just 57,000 miles on the odometer at the Kissimmee Summer Special in late August.

This Exquisite 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL Just Sold on BaT for $175,000

The Batmobile is fetching some bat-crazy money nowadays

One way to make sure that a car is rare is to check if it was built simply as a way for an automaker to race that certain model on the tracks or the rally stages. This applies to BMW’s E9 CSL, the winged warrior that dominated the European touring car racing scene for the better part of a decade taking wins against the likes of Ford, Mercedes-Benz, and Jaguar in the process. The road-going version is just as flamboyant and, as this latest BaT auction proves, incredibly desirable.

Amazing Car for Sale: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss

Amazing Car for Sale: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss

Surely one of the more insane automotive creations to come from the stoic Germans at Mercedes-Benz

Nostalgia is a strong tool in marketing and when you’re Mercedes-Benz you’ve got a huge bank of memories to fall back on, a seemingly endless catalog of legendary models and memorable milestones and otherwise remarkable achievements, some of the more incredible having been achieved in the world of racing.

Among Mercedes’ finest days in the sun on the circuits of the world is the day when a journalist accompanied a then-up-and-coming driver to win a road race in Italy. The men were Denis Jenkinson and Stirling Moss and the car was the 300 SLR. 45 years after that victory for the ages in the Mille Miglia, Mercedes-Benz paid tribute to Moss, to Jenks, and to the SLR by building this, the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss.

The 10 Most Expensive Cars In The World

The 10 Most Expensive Cars In The World

Prices ranging from $22 million to a whopping $70 million

Cars have been divided into affordable and expensive ever since the early days of the automobile. As Ford began to streamline production for the Model T, which made it affordable to the average Joe, automakers like Rolls-Royce were producing luxurious and expensive cars.

Companies like Bugatti, Duesenberg, and Cadillac soon joined this endeavor to produce the best car in the world, which would also be the most expensive car in the world. As years went by, many of them also became very valuable. Rare cars become collectibles, and collectible status comes with a high price tag. Which are the rarest and most expensive cars on the market right now? Find out in the article below.

Ken Miles’ Mustang Shelby GT350R Becomes The Most Expensive Mustang Ever Sold At Auction

The Bullitt Mustang’s reign as the top-selling Mustang didn’t last long

A 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R has become the most expensive Mustang ever sold at an auction setting. The record-breaking Shelby GT350R sold for a whopping $3.85 million, eclipsing the previous record-holder, the 1968 Mustang GT hero car that was driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt. No less than Ken Miles, the British racer who was prominently featured as one of the main characters in the movie, Ford v. Ferrari, drove the specific Shelby GT350R, nicknamed the “Flying Mustang.” The $3.85 million sale price now ascends to the top of the ladder as the single most expensive Mustang to ever sell at auction. It’s going to take a special Mustang to unseat the new record-holder.

Would you pay $250,000 for a 32-year-old car?

The Most Expensive Mustang Is Now a 1965 Shelby GT350R With a Price of $3.85 Million

The Most Expensive Mustang Is Now a 1965 Shelby GT350R With a Price of $3.85 Million

Would you pay almost $4 million for a classic Shelby Mustang?

The first-generation Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic cars ever built, and for a 60-year-old classic it isn’t very expensive. You can buy several models for less than $100,000 and the rare versions aren’t as expensive as the Ferraris from the era, which are known to cost from as low as $5 million to as much as $50 million.

But some Mustangs can cost millions of dollars. Up until now, Steve McQueen’s Mustang from the Bullitt movie was the most expensive, having been auctioned off for $3.74 million in January 2020. Come July and that record has been surpassed by another Mustang from the era. The prototype version of the 1965 Shelby GT350R just crossed the block for $3.85 million, $14K more than McQueen’s green ’Stang.

Car for Sale: Amazingly Rare, RHD, 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV

Car for Sale: Amazingly Rare, RHD, 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV

It may, occasionally, catch fire but, otherwise, it’s amazing

Lamborghini is known for making some of the world’s most outlandish cars. The Aventador is arguably the last of the old-school greats, a big, heavy supercar with a naturally aspirated V-12 engine positioned behind the seats and its tiny brother, the Huracan, has been a steady seller for years.

But Lamborghini wasn’t always hell-bent on making supercars with its first cars being laid-back grand tourers. It all changed, however, when the Miura arrived. And then, while everyone was still wiping off their drool, Lamborghini struck again with this, the Miura SV.

Car for Sale: 1974 Pontiac Firebird Resto Mod With a Corvette LS3

Car for Sale: 1974 Pontiac Firebird Resto Mod With a Corvette LS3

Classic Pontiac design with a modern twist

The second-generation Pontiac Firebird was built from 1970 until 1981, and the cars produced in the first couple of years are by far the most popular. That’s because they’re from the golden muscle car era and fitted with the high power engines that went extinct when the oil crisis hit in 1973. However, the Firebird enjoyed new popularity toward the end of the 1970s thanks to a Trans Am model being used in the Smokey and the Bandit movie. If you’re looking for something unique from the era, here’s a nice restomod version of a 1974 Firebird.
