2021 Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule

2021 Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule

Lambo’s new design package for the Urus is anything but subtle

Lamborghini is far from a subtle automaker. None of its models can fly under the radar, and even if you ask for a toned-down color, a Lamborghini will still stand out from the pack because, well, it’s a Lamborghini. Of course, that’s not going to stop the Italian automaker from rolling out a new options package for the Urus that’ll supposedly succeed in toning down the SUV’s looks.

The new options package is called Graphite Capsule, and it includes four new exterior paint colors, neon highlights in the body and interior, and an assortment of other visual highlights. Opt for the Graphite Capsule package on your 2021 Lamborghini Urus and you stand to pay at least $218,009. That’s a healthy increase — more than $15,000 — from the price of a 2020 Urus. Then again, you are still paying for a Lamborghini. Those are expensive last we checked.

2021 Audi R8 Green Hell Edition

German automaker celebrates Nurburgring dominance with a spicy special edition R8

The Nurburgring is arguably the world’s most famous race track, and if that distinction is attached to your name, automakers are likely to come up with any reason to release special edition models in your name.

Since 2012, Audi has dominated the Green Hell, winning the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race five times. Not one to be bashful about its achievements, Audi is celebrating those victories with a special edition R8 called the Green Hell.

2021 Acura RDX PMC Edition

2021 Acura RDX PMC Edition

Automaker’s top-selling crossover gets an exclusive paint finish, among other new goodies

Four months after unveiling the TLX PMC Edition, Acura is giving the same special edition treatment to its RDX crossover. Dubbed the RDX PMC Edition, the special edition crossover benefits from the same exclusive additions Acura gave to the TLX. That includes the Thermal Orange Pearl paint finish that’s arguably one of the best colors you can get in the market. The RDX PMC Edition now occupies the range-topping slot in the lineup, combining the two trims sitting underneath it — the A-Spec and Advance Package — into one model. Befitting its status as a top-of-the-line special edition model, Acura is limiting the production of the special edition crossover to just 360 units, all of which are earmarked for the North American market. Each unit of the RDX PMC will carry a sticker price of “in the low $50,000,” according to Acura.

2021 Ford Ranger Tremor

2021 Ford Ranger Tremor

This is Ford’s way of making up for the Ranger Raptor

Customers in the U.S. have been craving the Ranger Raptor since it was announced for other markets. Ford has denied giving the pleasure so far, but there is news of the Ranger Raptor finally heading Stateside when the 2022 Ranger arrives. Since that is still some time away, the Blue Oval has decided to give us a taste of what to expect by introducing the Tremor off-road package for the mid-size pickup truck. While it is no Raptor, it is a lot more capable than the existing FX4 off-road package. Ford has priced the package at $4,290, but the catch is that is won’t be available on all the trims.

Feast your eyes on the Corse, Futura, and Unica

It’s been an eventful week for Maserati. The arrival of the MC20 supercar coincided with the Italian automaker unveiling its long its five-year plan. The industrial plan includes 16 launches, including three refreshed models and as many as 13 new models, including the Grecale crossover, which is scaled to arrive in 2021.

Part of the program’s launch is a show of capability — a muscle flex of sorts — that involves three one-off models that are based on three of Maserati’s existing models: the Ghibli, Levante, and Quattroporte. Each one-off offers a preview of what we can all expect from the Fuoriserie personalization program. All existing Maserati models, including the just-launched MC20 supercar and the soon-to-arrive Grecale crossover, will be available in the program.

2021 Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition

2021 Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition

Another wonderful special edition courtesy of Lexus

The Lexus RC F is one of the most fascinating two-door coupes on the market. It looks sharp, packs plenty of power, and it drives like a genuine sports car. Unfortunately, the RC F still lacks the verve that some of its German rivals possess. Lexus knows that there’s plenty of room for improvement with the RC F, and with the arrival of this new special edition model, we might see these improvements sooner than we thought. The model is called the Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition, and not only does it pay tribute to the iconic racetrack in the foothills of the world-famous mountain, but, more importantly, it comes with an array of special edition touches that provide that singular appeal that a lot of special edition models possess. Highlights include a distinctive look that’s bolstered by several technical improve Only 60 units of the RC F Fuji Speedway Edition will be made, and while Lexus has yet to release pricing details for the special edition sports car, don’t expect it to close lower than $70,000.

2020 Aston Martin Victor

2020 Aston Martin Victor

The Victor is a unique Aston Martin based on the mighty One-77

The 2020 Aston Martin Victor is a bespoke, one-off supercar developed by the company’s Q division. Built around a carbon-fiber monocoque from the One-77, a car that Aston Martin offered from 2009 to 2012, the Victor draws styling cues from the V8 Vantage of 1970s, as well as the race-spec DBS V8 (also known as the RHAM/1) that Aston Martin built in the late 1970s for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The 2020 Victor is powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 also sourced from the One-77, but some drivetrain components come from the much newer Valkyrie supercar. Q by Aston Martin built just one, so it’s one of those supercars that you can only hope to see in the metal at a fancy auto show.

2021 McLaren 620R with MSO R Pack

2021 McLaren 620R with MSO R Pack

There’s nothing inherently wrong with more carbon fiber, right?

McLaren’s road-spec 620R is one of the most hardcore machines to come out of Woking, England in recent years. Not only is it the most powerful “Sports Series” McLaren in the lineup, but it was developed specifically to go fast. Nothing about the 620R counts as subtle, and that includes McLaren’s new “R Pack,” which the automaker is launching to make what is already a hardcore supercar even more hardcore.

Car for Sale: One-Off 2014 Aston Martin Rapide Jet 2+2

Car for Sale: One-Off 2014 Aston Martin Rapide Jet 2+2

When it comes to unique cars, the Bertone Jet 2+2 takes the cake with ease

Don’t get us wrong. The Aston Martin Rapide is a special car itself. It was the first four-door Aston Martin to make it into production and a declaration of beauty as far as its design went. One particular customer, however, wanted all that and more luggage room – after all, the Rapide only offered 317 liters of trunk volume, which is hatchback territory – and that’s how the one-off Rapide Bertone Jet 2+2 was born.
