1968 Porsche 908 Works Short-Tail Coupe

1968 Porsche 908 Works Short-Tail Coupe

A Stuttgart racing classic

The Porsche 908 is a prototype racer that competed in the mid- to late-‘60s and into the early-70’s, squaring off against some of the best of the best from the likes of Ferrari and Ford in numerous endurance racing events. Bearing an advanced aero package, an innovative flat-eight-cylinder engine, and a tenacious attitude, the 908 played a crucial part in Porsche’s racing development, and now sits as one of the more desirable collectible competition Porsches to go head to auction.

1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

A true rally legend, straight out of Italy

Let’s do a little thought experiment. Say you’re looking to create one of the greatest road cars in existence. Where do you start? The answer should be obvious - racing, or, more specifically, a homologation special. These are machines birthed from the womb of competition, tuned ever so slightly to meet the rules of the road and sold to mere mortals like you and me. The Lancia Stratos HF Stradale is one such vehicle. Plucked from the sideways insanity of the WRC, the Stratos comes from a time before AWD, a time when simple, brutal machines vied for supremacy by dancing on the limits of adhesion offered by the rear wheels alone.

The “HF” in the name stands for “High Fidelity,” Lancia’s go-to designation when it comes to its high-performance models, while “Stradale” is Italian for road, indicating the car’s street worthiness. Powered by a Ferrari-sourced V-6 and stripped down to only the bare essentials, the Stratos is often credited with changing the world of rally as the first car designed specifically for competition in the sport. Throw in the fact Lancia made nearly 500 examples for the road, and what you’re left with is a truly fantastic car.

1993 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R V-Spec

1993 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R V-Spec

Godzilla!!!

The GT-R V-Spec was the range-topping model of the R32-generation Nissan Skyline. Designed for homologation purposes in order for the R32 to compete in Group A racing, the GT-R was upgraded to V-Spec features in 1993. Production ended in 1994 with only a handful of V-Spec models built. Due to its massive success in the Australian Touring Car Championship, the R32 GT-R was nicknamed "Godzilla."

Launched in 1957 by Prince, the Skyline nameplate started life as a rather common automobile. By 1969, it was sold as a Nissan and spawned a number of higher-performance versions, including the first GT-R model in 1969. The R32 arrived in 1989 when Nissan decided to drop every other body style save for the coupe and sedan. Nissan built almost 300,000 Skylines in five years, but only around 44,000 were GT-Rs. The V-Spec was produced in less than 2,800 units, making it one of the rarest GT-Rs ever. Beyond that, the V-Spec was one of the agilest productions cars on the race track back in its day. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

Pagani Previews Its Version of an Airplane Cabin and It Is Glorious

Pagani Previews Its Version of an Airplane Cabin and It Is Glorious

There’s a reason why the Italian automaker is known for its generous use of carbon fiber

The result of Pagani’s partnership with Airbus Corporate Jets came to life at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where the Italian automaker showcased a scale model of its Infinito cabin. The mock-up is a bespoke interpretation of what a Pagani-designed airplane cabin could look like in the future. Neither Pagani nor Airbus Corporate Jets have given a timetable on when the Infinito cabin will come to life.

2019 Acura NSX

2019 Acura NSX

Handles better, includes previous options as standard

The iconic Acura NSX made a comeback in 2016, after a 11-year absence from the market. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain for the first time, the second-generation NSX just got better for the 2019 model year thanks to a comprehensive mid-cycle refresh.

Already a potent sports car, the Acura NSX now rides on a revised chassis that’s supposed to enhance agility on the road and track. Acura also made some design changes, but these are rather small and limited mostly to new color options. But the Japanese firm also added new standard features that cost more than the marginal price increase of the facelift. Find out more about that in the review below.

Rimac’s new crown jewel gets in on the California vibe

Not content with blowing us away with the Rimac C_Two, the electric supercar brand took to the Peterson Automotive Museum to showcase a special edition version of the C_Two, called the California Edition. The limited-run electric supercar mixes all the mind-numbing features and qualities of the C_Two and adds room for…two champagne bottles. There’s no word yet on the availability of the C_Two California Edition, though expect it to be a tad more expensive than the $1.2 million standard version.

2019 Bugatti Divo

2019 Bugatti Divo

Finally a Bugatti that’s track-capable!

The Bugatti Divo is a track-focused version of the Chiron. It’s also the supercar through which Bugatti revived its coachbuilding tradition after seven decades. Although based on the Chiron, the Divo looks significantly different, boasting what appears to be a new design language.

The Divo isn’t Bugatti’s first attempt to turn the Chiron into a better car at the track. The Chiron Sport was the first to bring enhanced dynamics, but the Divo takes everything to a new level with significantly higher performance in terms of lateral acceleration, agility, and cornering. As Bugatti puts it, the Divo "is made for corners."

Just like the Chiron, the new supercar is named after a famous Bugatti racing driver. This time around, it’s Albert Divo - a two-time winner of the Targa Florio race on the mountainous roads of Sicily in the late 1920s. Unlike the Chiron, which is limited to 500 units, the Divo will be built in only 40 examples. Let’s see what makes it special.

2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63

For those times when a half-a-million-dollar supercar still isn’t enough

If the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce Jota (SVJ) isn’t rare enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that a 63-unit Aventador SVJ 63 Special Edition is also available from Lamborghini. The rarer Aventador SVJ 63 carries that name as a nod to 1963, the year patriarch Ferruccio Lamborghini founded the company. Lamborghini has yet to release the price for the Aventador SVJ 63, but expect it to be heavier on the pockets compared to the $517,770 price tag of the “standard” Aventador SVJ.

2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

Maranello’s most powerful V-8 car goes topless

The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider joined the 488 lineup at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a replacement for the 458 Speciale Aperta. The Ferrari 488 Pista replaced the iconic 458 Speciale, and it’s the first of its kind to hide a turbocharged engine under the hood.

Just when we thought that Ferrari settled for the Aperta name for its convertible sports car, Maranello returned to using the old Spider badge. But this is arguably a small issue here, as the Pista Aperta is just as exciting as its coupe sibling, but with extra headroom when the top is removed. The 50th drop-top model built by Ferrari since 1947, the Pista Spider made its global debut in the United States, where convertible sports cars are more popular than everywhere else in the world. Let’s have a closer look at the latest member of the 488 family in the review below.

2019 SSC Tuatara

2019 SSC Tuatara

Aims to set a new world speed record for production cars!

Originally unveiled in 2011 as a concept car, the SSC Tuatara has finally evolved into a production car. It was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2018, and it promises to be faster and more powerful than its predecessor, the Ultimate Aero.

Established in 1999, SSC North America, formerly known as Shelby SuperCars Inc., took the supercar market by surprise when it established a new world speed record for production cars with the Ultimate Aero in 2007. Driven to a top speed of 256.18 mph, the Aero surpassed the Bugatti Veyron’s 253.7-mph benchmark. The French firm regained its record three years later with Super Sport, which hit a certified top speed of 267.81 mph.

Eight years have passed since then, and the speed record is now being held by the Koenigsegg Agera RS at 277.9 mph, but SSC promises to move the benchmark into 300-mph territory with the Tuatara. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

The Salaff C2 Was Designed by the Same Guy Behind the Mazda3 and MX-5 Miata

It looks like a design that comes from someone who knows a thing or two about designing cars

The Salaff C2 turned a lot of heads at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and for good reason as the model is the work of none other than Carlos Salaff, the American auto designer who’s responsible for designing the Mazda3, Mazda MX-5, and the Mazda Nagare and Mazda Furai concept vehicles. Years of working for a number of established automakers led Salaff to create his own supercar company. The first product to roll out of this new niche firm is the Salaff C2.

If this is a sign of Audi’s future, then sign us up for it

In a world where the term “concept car” has been overused to some extent, Audi jolted some life back to the phrase with the PB18 e-Tron Concept. The fascinating prototype made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, blending form with a number of functions, packaged in a dynamic design that’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen from Audi. Best of all, at least for snobs of the autonomous technology movement, the PB18 e-Tron Concept gives the driver full control of the vehicle with no hints of autonomous tech assistance.

2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

The Jota returns and it’s angrier than ever!

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most powerful and aggressive version of the company’s flagship supercar. The car that bears the iconic Jota suffix, which was first used on the Miura, made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as the fastest production car on the Nurburgring as of 2018.

The first Lambo to carry a "Jota" badge since the Diablo, the Aventador SVJ is essentially a beefed-up version of the SV. But it’s not just faster and more powerful, it’s also more aerodynamic, as it benefits from the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. First introduced on the Huracan Performante, ALA is a range of active aerodynamic features that turn the already potent supercar into a road-legal race car. Alongside the SVJ, Lambo launched a limited-edition SJV 63 model that pays homage to the company’s founding year of 1963.

2019 BMW Z4

Inspired by the flagship 8 Series

The third-generation BMW Z4 combines styling features seen on the Z4 Concept from 2017 and the flagship 8 Series Coupe. The roadster broke cover at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in M40i trim.

After more than three years of speculation, which included rumors that the roadster might be renamed, the third-gen Z4 made its public debut exactly 30 years after the first Z1 car went into production in 1988. Unveiled at same location as the Z4 Concept in 2017, the third-gen Z4 replaces a seven-year model that was past its prime. Drawing cues from both the Z4 Concept and the 8 Series, the new Z4 raises above the competition in just about every department. Details are still under wraps as far as drivetrains and technology goes, but we can finally take a closer look at the roadster.

Meet the Bugatti Divo – The Chiron's Angry Cousin

Meet the Bugatti Divo – The Chiron’s Angry Cousin

Aerodynamics like whoa

Buggati has finally revealed the Divo and, as it turns out, it’s basically the Chiron with an attitude problem and an insatiable love for throwing temper tantrums around corners. Seriously – Bugatti took the Chiron, gave it a meaner face, muscular front hood, corner-mounted headlights, and more aggressive side skirts. However, to make room for those side skirts, Bugatti engineers had to reword the side-mounted intakes, which are now smaller than before but have more definition than ever. To compensate for the smaller intakes, the roof has been formed to create a NACA air duct to help keep things cool under the engine’s hood. It’s not all about looks, though is it?
