2021 Infiniti Q50 Signature Edition
Infiniti has introduced the new Q50 ‘Signature Edition’ to spice up its model range a bit. The luxury sedan has been on the market for the better part of the last decade, and it was getting lost in the highly competitive segment. The automaker had refreshed the car recently and even came up with a powerful, sportier version called the ‘Red Sport 400’. For 2021, Infiniti has opted for subtle exterior and interior upgrades and selected a ‘classy’ approach. It is said to be a limited-production edition, but the company hasn’t announced how many Signature Editions will be produced.
2021 Audi R8 LMS GT2 Exclusive Color Edition
You don’t really see Audi come up with such stuff, but the automaker has revealed a ‘Color Edition’ of its most powerful product - the R8 LMS GT2. But, in all fairness, it deserves to be pampered with such appearance editions, considering it is the German automaker’s flagship race car. Audi is offering it in six different exterior shades, each one looking better than the other. There are no changes made to the cabin or the drivetrain, but you can’t expect much with a premium price increase of just $13,000.
2022 Aston Martin V12 Speedster DBR1
Aston Martin has come up with a DBR1-spec V12 Speedster which pays homage to the namesake 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours winner. This will be an optional package that brings about aesthetic changes to the exterior and the interior. There are no changes made to the powertrain specs. Aston Martin hasn’t even mentioned the price of this package, but expect the final cost of the V12 Speedster DBR1 to cross $1 million. That’s a lot of money.
2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston
From the outrageous styling, to the thumping V-12 powerplant, to the breathtaking performance, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is anything but boring. But that’s not stopping one lucky owner from turning the volume knob up to 11 on their Raging Bull. Say hello to the SC18 Alston, which comes with race-spec aero and a track-ready attitude to set it apart from its more “standard” brethren. And although it’s designed for track use, the SC18 Alston is still road-legal, bringing the best of both worlds into wing-tastic harmony.
2021 Bentley Continental GT V8 Equinox Edition
Bentley and Mulliner recently came up with the Equinox Edition for the Continental GT V-8. The Equinox Edition will be exclusively sold in Japan. The luxury sedan comes with a whole lot of aesthetic changes on the outside as well as the inside. It continues to be powered by the automaker’s new 4.0-liter V-8 mill that makes over 500 horses and 500 pound-feet of torque. The automaker hasn’t revealed the price of the Equinox Edition, but it will build just 10 examples of it.
2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo
The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is a special-edition version of the 4C Spider and the final production run of the nameplate for North America. Launched in 2013, the Alfa Romeo 4C arrived on U.S. soil in 2014, marking the brand’s return to North America after almost 20 years. With the coupe model discontinued in 2018, Alfa Romeo confirmed that Spider sales are also coming to a halt in the U.S. for 2021. But the small, lightweight 4C is going into the history books with a bang through the limited-edition 33 Stradale Tributo model.
2020 Aston Martin Victor
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 Nissan GT-R Nismo Special Edition (Japan Only)
The current Nissan GT-R is one of the oldest cars on sale in the US, but Nissan doesn’t seem to care. In fact, the Japanese carmaker has taken the wraps off a Special Edition version dedicated exclusively to Japan. We also know that a new-generation GT-R is under development, so is this the swan song we’ve all been waiting for?
This Bespoke Pagani Huayra BC Roadster "Supernova" Is The Definition of Sexy
The Pagani Huayra arrived on the automotive scene in 2011 as a spiritual successor to the Zonda. It derives its name from Huayra-tata, a Quetcha wind God. The company announced just 100 examples of the Huayra when launched and all of them we sold by 2015. This was followed by the Huayra Roadster, Huayra BC, Huayra Roadster BC, and the Huayra Imola. All of these are limited production models as well and Pagani will build just 100, 20, 40, and five examples, respectively.
A customer in Canada recently took the delivery of his highly-customized Roadster BC ‘Supernova,’ and we can’t stop drooling over it.
2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance Launch Edition
Not too long ago, Lexus unveiled the 2022 IS 500 F Sport as the first vehicle in its ‘F Sport Performance Line’ Series. The car came with a V-8 engine under the hood that made close to 500 ponies and took under five seconds to sprint to 60 mph. A month post the reveal, the automaker has now unveiled the ‘Launch Edition’ of the hot car. It comes with the same V-8 mill and the changes pertain only to the exterior and interior.
2021 Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition
Remember last week’s blacked-out teaser photo Aston Martin posted on all its social media channels? It turns out we were right, and it is not a new AMR model – that did not made sense anyway. Called the F1 Edition, this Vantage was designed for improved lap times, but it can also be driven on public roads.
2021 Toyota GR Supra Jarama Race Track Edition
Toyota is launching a special edition version of the GR Supra called the Jarama Race Track Edition.

The Toyota GR Supra Jarama Race Track Edition will be available this spring. Pricing details have not been announced.

2021 Ram 1500 ‘Built to Serve’: Coast Guard Edition
In November 2019, Ram had announced a series of special ‘Built to Serve’ series of trucks to honors America’s five armed forces. The first four editions were launched over the last 15 months, and now, it’s time for the final phase that honors the coast guards. Ram will offer 1,250 packages in this installment out of the 10,000 earmarked for this series. The production for it will begin in the second quarter of 2021.
2021 Lamborghini SC20
Lamborghini’s Motorsport division, Squadra Corse, is back with another one-off project called the SC20, following the SC18 Alston and the SCV12. With a blue and white theme all around, the supercar takes inspiration from a lot of other bulls from the company’s portfolio. It features a V-12 engine that makes 759 horses, and, to make the deal even sweeter, Lamborghini has said that the SC20 is road legal!
The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance Takes Aim At the BMW M3 and Audi RS5
Lexus has launched the 2022 IS 500 F Sport Performance model. It is the first model in the automaker’s new ‘F Sport Performance Line’ series. The biggest talking point is the 5.0-liter, V-8 engine under the hood. The IS moniker has been around for a long time now, but it’s still trying to find its feet as a worthy contender to the three Germans. Lexus has made a lot of mechanical enhancements to sell it as a sporty sedan, but only time will tell if a V-8 was all the IS needed to make a splash.
