9 One-Off Supercars You Probably Forgot Existed

9 One-Off Supercars You Probably Forgot Existed

You can’t forget about these unicorns

Owning a supercar guarantees you a certain level of pride and status. Not everyone is lucky enough to afford these six-figure performance machines so when you have one, you have to feel good about yourself.

The rise of bespoke divisions among performance car brands has resulted in a number of one-off supercars being made. Some of these unicorns have turned into the subject of dreams for a lot of people. Some, though, have been forgotten, or, at the very least, set aside in favor of the shiny new releases.

You Can Now Drag Race The Bugatti Bolide in CSR Racing 2

Drive the incredible Bugatti Bolide on your mobile device in CSR Racing 2!

Bugatti unveiled the spectacular Bolide in October 2020 as its lightest, quickest, and most powerful creation to date. But the Bolide is described as an "experimental study," which means it’s a prototype or concept car that won’t go into production. We might not even see it in the metal anytime soon, but you can now drag race it in the CSR Racing 2 mobile game.

Muscle Meets Sexy as the Shelby GT500 Dukes it Out with a BMW M8 Competition

Muscle Meets Sexy as the Shelby GT500 Dukes it Out with a BMW M8 Competition

In a race between high-powered sports coupes, only one will be crowned the winner

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and the BMW M8 Competition are two of the fiercest sports coupes in the market. They’re also completely different from one another in ways that are obvious. One is an American muscle car that’s more than willing to chop anyone’s head of with brute force and power. The other is a German rocket brimming with premium bits and pieces. One is also far more expensive than the other, which we’ll set aside in favor of a more pressing question: which of these two sports coupes would win in a drag race? Our friends from Edmunds sought an answer and the results will surprise you.

BMW Made the 4 Series Ugly Because It's Okay With You Making It Look Better

BMW Made the 4 Series Ugly Because It’s Okay With You Making It Look Better

As long as you buy the new BMW 4 Series, you can do anything you please with it

It’s been a while since the 4 Series was launched and understandably, some people haven’t been able to get over its looks - yeah, we’re looking at you, bucktooth grille. BMW, on the other hand, seems to have accepted the 4er’s polarizing nature and has no problem whatsoever if customers modify the coupe’s front design.

Car for Sale: 1988 BMW E30 M3

Car for Sale: 1988 BMW E30 M3

One of the best driver’s cars of all time has come up on sale at Bring-a-Trailer

BMW M3 needs no introduction. The new model with the kidney grille has faced a lot of flak, but that’s because the yesteryear models had set the bar so high. One such M3 from the 1980s has arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions and it looks absolutely droolworthy. This ’88 belongs to the first-gen of the M3s ever produced by BMW. This particular example comes with a four-cylinder engine, a manual gearbox, and has over 80,000 miles on the odo.

Watch in Amazement As a Tesla Model S Fights It Out With a Lamborghini Huracan Performante

This is more lopsided than we expected!

Since the dawn of electric vehicles, all the records set by internal combustion-engined supercars and hypercars are in danger. The same applies to drag races and quarter-mile runs, too. We’ve seen numerous races where EVs have obliterated some of the most beloved fuel-powered counterparts.

Here’s another race where a V-10 takes on a dual-motor setup. We’re talking about the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and the Tesla Model S. Both the cars are closely matched in terms of performance, but the race wasn’t as close as expected. Will the Italian bull touch the finish line first, or will the silent assassin prevail?

Does an Old-School Mercedes SLR McLaren Hold Up Against a McLaren 540C?

It’s a generational race for the ages!

We’ve seen our fair share of drag races this year, possibly because there’s not much else to do with the coronavirus pandemic still raging all over world. We’ve seen all sorts of combinations, too, but what we haven’t seen is a generational drag race between two supercars that trace their roots to the same origin, or at least one of them does.

This is a race between the McLaren 540C, the British automaker’s supposed entry-level supercar, and the iconic Mercedes SLR McLaren, considered by many as the product of one of the greatest automotive collaborations in recent memory.

Classic Car For Sale: 1973 BMW 3.0 CS

Classic Car For Sale: 1973 BMW 3.0 CS

This fantastic BMW E9 is going for under $50,000, and it could be yours if you act fast

The old Bimmers have a charm that the new ones just cannot match. An E9 from the 70s has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer and it certainly looks like one to collect. The German automaker built the E9 from 1968 to 1975. Apart from its classic, stellar looks, the car was also a performance beast back in those days. BMW even built a homologation of this series in the form of the 3.0 CSL model, which was quite successful as a racing car, especially in the European Touring Car Championship and the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft.

The car that the auction site has here is a 3.0 CS, which is the tamed version of the 3.0 CSL, but comes with equipment from the latter. Although it spent most of its years in the U.S., it is now up for sale in Canada. Interested?

Throwback: 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 "Germany" Commercial

Throwback: 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 "Germany" Commercial

Go back in time and watch one of Ford’s greatest commercials

2006 seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? At the very least, it feels like a different lifetime. Social media was still in its infancy and the world felt a lot bigger back then. 2006 was also a big year for Ford. The Blue Oval was bringing the Shelby Mustang back to life after a 25-year absence. Ford went all-out in marketing the return of the Shelby nameplate, and one commercial, in particular, effectively hammered Ford’s point. The Shelby Mustang was a beast, and there really was just one road in the world that could have a proper dance with it: the German Autobahn.

The ad, called “Germany,” puts the spotlight squarely on the 2006 Shelby Mustang GT500 and what it could do on a stretch of road that didn’t have any speed limits. It’s a fascinating commercial to look back on given that the Shelby Mustang is now deep into its third generation.

Amidst the horde of EV hypercars, U.K.-based automaker Naran Automotive has come up with a 1,048-horsepower internal combustion-engined hypercar.

The automaker says it will build only 49 examples of this beast and each one can be highly customized as per the owner’s needs.

Lamborghini's V-12 Isn't Going Anywhere Anytime Soon

Lamborghini’s V-12 Isn’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon

Sant’Agata Bolognese understands all about treasuring one’s heritage so the V-12 will stay, but assisted by electricity

The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 wasn’t brought to life just because Lamborghini had a fraction of its yearly budget left in the tank and wanted to burn through it. Now more than ever, it’s clear that the Aventador-based Sián was created with an eye on the brand’s future.

More precisely, the brand’s future in relation to ICEs, and specifically, to its V-12 engine which according to a new report, will live on to throne inside the Aventador’s replacement, albeit as part of an electrified powertrain.

Watch Andreas Preuninger show the new Porsche 911 GT3 to Christ Harris, without camo!

Porsche has already shown a lightly camouflaged version of the new 911 GT3, but it’s still delaying the official unveiling. The presentation car, which we already know it’s painted blue, is being kept in the company’s GT Hall, a big room where several GT3 and GT2 models from the past are being preserved. Chris Harris recently got the chance to visit the hall together with 911 GT3 mastermind Andreas Preuninger and got a glimpse at the uncamouflaged car.

Here’s What the 1994 Ford Mustang Cosworth From An Alternate Universe Looks Like

Ford never built such thing as a Mustang Cosworth but still, what if?

We know we’ve been bombarding you with a lot of Subaru BRZ-related content lately especially of the how-would-it-look-in-STI-clothes variety, so let’s switch it up a little, shall we?

Just check out this 1994 Ford Mustang Cosworth digital unicorn that Abimelec Arellano created and somehow managed to flawlessly piece together. I mean, come on, this looks like it’s fresh out of an unpublished, secret book of Blue Oval concepts that never made it into production.

Those Who Purchased a Ford GT Two Years Ago Are now Cashing in Hand Over Fist

Those Who Purchased a Ford GT Two Years Ago Are now Cashing in Hand Over Fist

The second-generation Ford GT is now a fully fledged seven-figure supercar in the open market

When Ford imposed a two-year resale ban on Ford GTs, it put a lot of people in precarious positions, specifically those who lucked into purchasing a GT with the intent to flip them afterward. Fortunately, two years isn’t a long time these days, and those who purchased their Ford GTs in 2018 are now able to reap the rewards from all the waiting.

A 2018 Ford GT is up for auction on the Bring A Trailer site, and with eight days still remaining in the auction, the GT is now close to doubling the amount the original owner paid for the supercar in 2018. If bidding continues at its current pace, there’s a reasonable chance that this 2018 Ford GT could fetch seven figures. That’s not a bad return on investment, is it?

5 Modern Sports Cars You've Probably Never Heard Of

5 Modern Sports Cars You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

It’s quite extraordinary to see so many small supercar and sportscar producers coming up and trying to take the cake from the limited, but money-endowed niche of a market. Only a handful actually do survive long enough to create a customer base (Pagani or Koenigsegg,) to induce some kind of hype and attract funding (Rimac,) or just be talked about (Lykan, Hennessey, or even Zenvo.) It seems that the new supercar producers are springing up like mushrooms (and they go away as easily,) even more so than sports car producers. In that regard, I managed to find five interesting sports cars you have probably never heard of. All of them do try (or have tried) to evoke some sort of evolution in this highly limited market.

The end goal is similar for all - to sell as many cars as possible and become profitable. Enter the world of the incredible, courageous, and sometimes rather innovative pieces of automotive royalty you’ve never heard of.

I am starting with a car from Slovenia, partly designed by a race car driver.

A Flea Market in Estonia Is The Last Place You’d Find a DMC DeLorean

And yet, there it is, ready to be driven by home

Cars aren’t typically sold in flea markets, especially one that’s as unique as a DeLorean DMC. And yet, a flea market in Estonia — yes, Estonia — has one. More importantly, it’s for sale, and you can take it home with you. It’s not exactly the kind of transaction you’d normally see from this flea market, but I think we already established that this isn’t your typical Estonian tag market, either.

2021 Audi TT Coupé and Roadster bronze selection

New add-on package adds a touch of class to the Audi TT

The current-generation Audi TT is already long in the tooth, having been around since 2014. While there are talks of a next-generation TT in the pipeline, that model isn’t expected to arrive for at least a few more years. In the meantime, Audi will continue freshening the current TT with a bevy of special edition models, including the new “bronze selection” that’s scheduled to hit European markets in the spring of 2021.

Packing visual upgrades of the burnished chestnut persuasion, the special edition model is available in the coupe and roadster versions of the TT and TTS via a bronze selection package that you can add to the cost of the sports car.

Jay Leno Has Some Interesting Thoughts On the Porsche Carrera GT

Jay Leno Has Some Interesting Thoughts On the Porsche Carrera GT

Jay Leno takes his V-10-powered Porsche Carrera GT out for a spin

Porsche’s most common sports cars are powered by flat-six engines, but the German company has made a few exceptions from this rule. The most iconic example is the Carrera GT, a supercar produced from 2003 to 2007. While some of Porsche’s modern vehicles are powered by V-6 and V-8 engines, the Stuttgart-based brand opted to drop a V-10 into the Carrera GT. And this is one of the main reasons why Jay Leno bought one. And he just showcased it in a new episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.

And no, Maserati isn’t bringing back the Shamal

We feel forced to interrupt our usual schedule for an absolute gem of a post uploaded on Instagram by Maserati Fuoriserie, the Italian carmaker’s arm that handles the sort of personalization that usually ends up in one-of-a-kind cars for supposedly very happy and proud customers.

In the said post, Maserati is actually asking for help to turn the so-called Rekall into reality and hoping it would spur the interest of (possibly wealthy) wannabe customers, it even dropped five photos of the design study.

The Alpina BMW i8 Didn’t Happen Because of Limitations in the i8’s Design

Alpina finally explains why it didn’t build its own version of the BMW i8

Whenever BMW unveils a cool model, Alpina usually modifies it into something even more exciting. Unfortunately, the i8 hybrid sports car was an exception from this rule.

Alpina did develop a beefed-up i8, as revealed back in 2019, but the performance hybrid never made into production. Alpina initially said that BMW didn’t agree for the project to go on, but the tuning company is now back to explain why the souped-up i8 remained just a prototype. As it turns out, turning it into a production model would have been too complicated and expensive.
