This Supercharged Lowrider ’68 F-100 Is Absolutely Droolworthy
The world can never have enough lowrider trucks, especially if they’re vintage and are customized tastefully. Autotopia recently covered a customized 1968 F-100 that looks great and features a Mustang V-8 crate engine. The truck was originally a magazine project for Classic Trucks, but went on sale last year and was purchased at an auction by the current owner. Looks neat, doesn’t it?
This Mercedes SLS AMG EV Is Just 1 of 9 Made - Here’s What You Need to Know
Its full name was the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, and it was supposed to mark a new era for Mercedes-Benz, one that brought to market emission-free super sports cars with technology borrowed from Formula 1. Unfortunately, the all-electric SLS didn’t quite kick it for the carmaker, who would need almost a decade more to unveil the EQC, its first all-electric road car. Which happened to be an SUV, not a sports car.
Here’s all you need to know about the SLS AMG EV.
This 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Is Basically Brand New
On August 31, 2017, FCA shut down the Conner Assembly Plant in Michigan and the Dodge Viper was officially axed because it couldn’t meet new safety regulations.
Is the Viper dead, though? Not really. Yes, Dodge isn’t making it anymore, but the carmaker managed to sell four Vipers in 2020, according to a report by MotorTrend. While it’s unclear how those units were snagged by new owners, if you’re really looking to get your hands on a special Viper, check out this 2009 Viper ACR.
Someone Paid Porsche 911 GT3 Money For this 1981 Porsche 924
The Porsche 924 was manufactured between 1976 and 1988. Although it was launched as a successor to the 914 and was supposed to sit at the bottom of the company’s model hierarchy, it came with a lot of significant bits and marked a lot of firsts for the company. It was the first street-legal Porsche to feature a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. Not to mention, also the first car from the company to come with an automatic gearbox.
There were many iterations and models of the 924, one of them being Carrera GTS. The automaker built 59 examples of it and 15 of them were the quicker ‘Clubsport’ models. One of these 15 was on Bring-a-Trailer’s auction recently and it was sold for over a quarter-million dollars! That’s way more expensive than any new 911 that you can buy today.
1995 Ferrari F512 M
The Ferrari F512 M was the last evolution of the Testarossa, unarguably one of the legendary cars of the ‘80s. The F512 M was lighter than its predecessor, featured more modern styling, and boasted improved handling characteristics.
Everyone knows the Testarossa. With its red cam covers, its long “cheese graters” on the sides, and angular design, it’s a staple of its time and one of Ferrari’s modern icons. At the time, it was every bit as fast as a Countach, if not slightly faster. It handled slightly better and, more importantly, was a more relaxed tourer in that you could actually drive the Testarossa for 500 miles at a time and not drop dead from back pain afterward.
The F512 TR continued the trend and refined the recipe, but the ultimate expression of this body shape came in 1994 and was christened F512 M, where M stands for “Modificato.” Indeed, there were many modifications done to the F512 M even in comparison to the F512 TR, but the same spirit was still there. It was to be the rarest of all the Testarossas since only 501 were built through 1996 when Ferrari rolled out the front-engined grand tourer called 550 Maranello.
This 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo Is Here To Remind You That Older Can Be Better
With the advent of EVs in the last couple of years, all people talk about is the range, battery capacity, or the number of motors equipped on its axle. So, let’s catch a break and remember a lovely BMW model from the past – the 1974 2002 Turbo. This model is fondly remembered as the first turbocharged production model to have rolled out of BMW’s production line. The German automaker made less than 1,700 examples of this beauty during its two-year production run. One of them recently arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions and you can make it yours if you act fast.
This 2006 Lamborghini Murciélago Is Here To Remind You That Sometimes Older Is Better
Lamborghini introduced the Murciélago back in 2001 as a successor to the Diablo. The Murciélago was in production for almost a decade. It was the first new car after 11 years and also happened to be the first under its new parent, Volkswagen. The Italian car was also the new flagship V-12 and worthy to be the face of the company. The car sold in decent numbers – 4,099 examples to be exact – and is still a hit with enthusiasts.
If you are someone who was craving to own one, here’s your chance to own a 2006 model Murciélago with 14,000 miles on the odo, courtesy of the Bring-a-Trailer auction.
1973 Chevrolet Corvette Motion Manta Ray GT - The Definition of Rare
The Chevrolet Corvette was always a beautiful car, but sometimes what comes out of the factory isn’t exclusive enough. In the 1970s, many C3 Corvettes were subjected to various enhancements, making them even more unique. It was the era of flared fenders, flashy wheels, catchy graphics, and a complete lack of subtlety. One such example is this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Motion Manta-Ray GT, which is one of only three cars customized by Baldwin-Motion.

Auction sites like bringatrailer.com are the perfect places to look at if you are looking for unusual or rare vehicles.

This 2006 Ferrari F430 Is the Queen of Naturally Aspirated Thrills
The Ferrari F430 was unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show as a successor to the Ferrari 360. It came with a whole lot of changes compared to its predecessor, especially in the aerodynamic efficiency department. The F430 now generated a greater downforce, thus instilling more confidence at higher speeds. The supercar was in production for about five years from 2004 to 2009 wherein Ferrari make around 15,000 examples of it. Not exactly a rare breed, but the F430 came with a naturally aspirated V-8 and a lot of heritage-inspired elements that make it a looker even to this day.
A 2006 example finished in the Rosso Corsa red shade with 20,000 miles on the odo has revisited the Bring-a-Trailer auction and here’s your chance to grab the beauty.
This 1978 Ferrari 512 BB "Koenig Special" is Extra Special

Back then, cars like these were the ultimate expression of wealth and power. But what happens when a Ferrari 512 BB doesn’t look flashy enough? You modify it, of course! This was the exact fate of this 1972 Ferrari 512 BB “Koenig Special”. The car is currently being auctioned off on collectingcars.com.

This 1981 RUF BTR Is Every Porsche 911 Fanboy’s Wet Dream

This Ultra-Rare Porsche 930 Turbo "Rinspeed R69" Redefines Custom
It might look like the lovechild of a Ferrari Testarossa and a Porsche 911 but the two car manufacturers never worked together on such a project. It also looks like something concocted in an obscure workshop on Thailand, but it’s not that either. Meet the extremely weird Rinspeed R69, a car that used to be a perfectly fine Porsche 911 930 Turbo.
This 1985 Peugeot 205 Could Have Helped Turbocharge Peugeot’s Future
After having launched the 205 hatchback in 1983, Peugeot wanted to boost its image even further by competing in the rally madness that was the Group B. To homologate the necessary rally car, it needed to churn out 200 street-legal versions that had to be based on a current production vehicle. That vehicle was the 205 supermini and the result was the bonkers Peugeot 205 T16, aka Turbo 16 in France.
