Full Interior Swap: Is this a Chevy C8 Camaro or an F-Body C8 Corvette?
Everyone loves a good engine swap. They are an endless source of amusement online and can breathe new life into a car. Even the most straightforward examples where you simply take an old engine out and put a new identical one in its place can make the car drive like it’s fresh out of the factory. Then there are the craziest ones, like dropping a Hellcat engine into a Prius or a Corvette powerplant into a Tesla. Plus, with the rise of the incredibly sophisticated SEMA-style builds, we occasionally see complete overhauls of cars from the ground up. This 3rd-gen Camaro may not win awards at SEMA since it is just an amalgamation of factory GM parts, but it certainly attracts attention. In terms of the engine swap, all we know is that out is the old 5.0-liter V-8 that originally lived under the hood, and in its place is an LS V-8 of some kind. Great, but in the grand scheme of things, not all that wild. The interior, on the other hand, is something of a different nature.

$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 Mid-Engined 1968 Chevy Camaro is As Intriguing as it is Unique

BMW And Roadsters: The Unholy Combo That Never Went BMW’s Way
BMW has a rich history when it comes to making skillfully engineered and highly technical automobiles, and its 106-year history is a testament to that. Even though most of its cars are classically handsome in a very German way, they do lack the flair that some of their Italian counterparts managed to bring to the table. In BMWs defense, it isn’t for the lack of trying, but unfortunately, there seems to be a curse that bars its flagship and flamboyant droptops from sales success.
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.
