This 1968 Ghibli Coupe Could End Up As a Very Affordable Classic
Looking at the present-day luxury saloon, you might think that the Ghibli was always a four-door sedan. But, introduced in 1966 at the Turin Motor Show, the Ghibli was born as a GT car with a V-8 under the hood. As a result, the OG Ghibli is as sporty as the current-gen model, and there’s one that could sell at auction for less than $10,000. Furthermore, this first-gen Ghibli is a 1968 model, and is in a decent condition, considering it is a 54-year-old car.
Bugatti Says Good Bye To Chiron With Special Edition L’Ébé

The Mythical, One and Only White Ferrari Enzo Is Real, and It’s For Sale!
Few car brands have the connotation of special as Ferrari. The sports cars of the prancing horse are legendary, some more so than others. Among the biggest highlights of the Italian brand is the Ferrari Enzo, which was built to celebrate 60 years of Ferrari. Like all flagship Ferrari models, the Enzo was produced in limited quantities, with only 400 examples, and now, the rarest of them all is being auctioned off through RB Sotheby’s without reserve.
This Electric 1952 Jaguar XK120 Comes Straight From the Ocean
Over the years, Jaguar has made some of the most beautiful vehicles. While the E-Type generally gets the spotlight, the 1948 to 1954 Jaguar XK120 is just as impressive. Moreover, UK-based company, Lunaz, dabbles in restoring and converting classic vehicles to zero-emissions EVs, and their latest project is based, precisely, on the elegant, British roadster. The Jaguar XK120 by Lunaz isn’t just about zero emissions. It’s also about sustainability and the whole vehicle has been restored using recycled waste from the oceans.
$7.4 Million Ultra-Rare Pagani Huayra Looks like a 1950’s Interpretation of the 2030’s
Pagani has achieved an almost mythic reputation in the automotive industry as it produces some of the most outlandish, quickest, and highly customizable cars in the world. However, they have only produced two models, the Zonda and the Huayra, although there have been numerous rare and specialized versions of each model. The latest ultra-exclusive model is possibly the most visually modified Pagani ever, the Codalunga. Only five units will be made and each has been sold for nearly $7.4 Million.
In case you were wondering what that hard-to-pronounce Italian word is, Cadalunga means ’longtail’ in Italian. While you would not guess by looking at it, the Cadalunga is essentially a Huayra underneath the wildly changed body.
This Rare, Low-Mileage Porsche 918 Spyder Will Sell For A Truckload of Money
The Porsche 918 Spyder was part of a hybrid hypercar triumvirate when it was unveiled in 2015. It sat alongside the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari, and it opened the doors for more electrified sports cars and supercars since. Unsurprisingly, the 918 Spyder was only produced in limited quantities, and if you weren’t able to line up for one, here’s your chance to own one.
Can the Ferrari Purosangue SUV Really Be a "True Sports Car?"
The Ferrari Purosangue is due to be unveiled this September, and it will possess a V-12, one of the last remaining new cars to come with such an engine as the world continues to shift towards electrification. However, with Ferrari now following everyone else in the supercar realm, such as Aston Martin with the DBX and Lamborghini with the Urus in making an SUV, will the Purosangue be a true sports car?
Resistance is Futile: McLaren Forced by Rivals to Enter the Electric Crossover Segment
SUVs and crossovers sales are sky rocketing. For example, in 2021 Porsche delivered a total of 300,000 examples of the Macan and Cayenne but only 38,644 examples of the iconic 911 sports car. For Lamborghini, the recently launched Urus is a hit with a total of 5,021 units sold in 2021 - almost double the sales of the Huracan. Also, for Aston Martin the DBX sales doubled in 2021, up to a total of 6,182 units - about half of all Aston Martin global sales in the same period.
In a world where everyone goes for big cars, trying to keep exclusivity over volume and profit is going to be very difficult, so McLaren will have no other option than to follow the trend.
The Technical Details Of the Everrati Ford GT40 EV Will Blow Your Mind
For those of you who might not know, Everrati is a British company specialized in converting iconic vintage cars into electric cars. In 2021, it joined forces with Superformance - a company based in Jupiter, Florida, and reengineered the legendary Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 race car.

Building A Lykan Hypersport Requires Two Years And A Porsche Boxster
W Motors unveiled the Lykan HyperSport at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. With only 10 units being built and a starting price of $3.69 million, people didn’t pay too much attention to the supercar. But when it made its appearance in the "Fast and Furious 7" people realized it is actually a very cool car. A total of 10 units were specially built for the movie, but a total of nine were crashed. The surviving unit was auctioned back in 2021. As you can imagine chances to see a HyperSport in real life are limited, and the chances to drive one are pretty close to nonexistent.

Ferrari’s Electrification Plans: Go Big or Go home
It is official; electric cars are here on everyone’s minds, and they are not going anywhere unless advancements are made in hydrogen, but that is not looking like it will happen anytime soon. The final sign of this fact is going to arrive on June 16 as Ferrari will give us all the nitty-gritty details of their step into the electric supercar and super-SUV market in a press briefing. The short story, however, is that Ferrari recently bought up land near their fabled Maranello factory with the plans to build a third production facility to focus on electric motors, EV batteries, and the development of future hybrid models.
Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport "Grand Prix" Edition Goes Live At Monaco
Bugatti is one of the most famous names in the automotive world. The beautiful Type 31 and successful Type 50 are some of the most expensive cars on the planet. Then there was a bit of a gap and the EB110 SuperSport debuted to be one of the fastest cars on Earth. Nearly a decade later the Veyron was the fastest car on Earth, now the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is the fastest car in the world. Now, there is a new version of the Chiron, known as the Chiron Pur Sport Grand Prix edition.

Don’t Write Off The Ferrari-Fighting Ginetta Akula Just Yet
The British automotive industry boasts many automotive manufacturers, found in varying degrees of obscurity. Ginetta is one of those manufacturers that, unlike many others, is still around. While the car has its fair share of lightweight sports cars for the road, the company mostly dabbles in various, single-make racing series, like the Ginetta G40 Cup, Ginetta GT4 Supercup, and others. However, the Leeds-based carmaker has done the unthinkable and challenged Ferrari with their latest creation, the Akula.

Wiesmann May be Looking to Trade Unique Sports Cars for Electric SUVs
Ever since the early 2000s, there has been a market for modern cars that visually and audibly resemble and have the same flare as sports cars from yesteryear. Old British sports cars were at the heart of this as they were always a joy to drive, but were notoriously unreliable and a pain to live with daily. In fact, the whole point of the original Mazda Miata was to capture the magic of the lightweight British sports car without the constant overheating and oil leaks.
SCG 004CS Is Now Street Legal, But The Cost Will Make You Not Want to Drive it
The Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) 004CS was announced back in 2020 and, even if we had to wait two years for it, the supercar is now finally street legal in the U.S. The non-road-legal race car - the 004C - just raced the recent Nurburgring 24 Hours where it finished 12th overall. As for the street legal version - the 004CS - a report from Road & Track suggests that deliveries will begin next month and that, by the end of 2022, a total of 25 customers will already receive their cars. As expected, the car will not be cheap, with prices set to start from an eye-watering $627,000.
The 12 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked
The first production car with a recorded speed was the 1894 Benz Velo that had a top speed of just 12 mph. Few verified records exist from that point until around 1950, when the Jaguar XK120 set a production car speed record of 124.6 mph (not to be confused with the tuned prototype that managed to hit 133 mph) From this point on, it became a trend for automotive publications to do their own top speed test. Even the venerable McLaren F1 was tested by Car & Driver, and in 2005 we got our first government-official speed record set by the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 and verified by German inspection officials in 2005. It was that moment when the official challenge between manufacturers kicked off, and since then there have only been a handful of cars up to breaking the record. This list covers the top 10 fastest cars in the world, ranked from slowest to fastest.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale
Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.
It’s Official: Bugatti Sucked at Developing Cars
When it comes to the automotive industry, Rimac’s acquisition of Bugatti is one of the most epic automotive marriages in recent history. Volkswagen owned the French hypercar manufacturer since 1998, but on November 2nd, 2021, the Croatian EV manufacturer, Rimac, officially took custodianship of Bugatti. While this is a great way for both car companies to move forward, Mate Rimac’s other goal for Bugatti is to assume much better control over the development costs, which is something Volkswagen did not manage very well at all.
