This 1977 Maserati Merak SS is said to have only 14,149 original miles and to have been in storage for more than 20 years. Said to run well and be in very good shape, there’s unfortunately not a lot of other info in the seller’s description. Based on photos, though, the car seems to be [...]
Having the time and money to see a project through to completion is one thing, but it’s the vision behind it – whether it be set in stone from the very outset, or evolved during the build – that more than often sets good cars apart from truly great cars. Krister ‘Sibbe’ Svahn’s 1980 Porsche 930 [...]
This 1963 Porsche 356B S coupe is claimed to be a matching-numbers example that is the subject of an aging 80′s restoration. Said to be clean, it has an ivory and black interior and looks to be riding on Empi-style 5-spoke wheels. There’s no mention of corrosion outside of a reference to the floors being [...]
This 1970 Alfa Romeo 1300 Junior Zagato is offered in an attractive light yellow that we have never seen on this body style before. The 6-spoke alloys are nicely matched and we like the selling dealer for their not-crazy prices and their use of the adjective “mellowed.” Find it here on eBay in the UK. Special thanks [...]
A new auction world record for a McLaren F1 was set last night when chassis #66 sold for $8.47 million at Gooding & Co’s auction at Pebble Beach. There’s been an inexorable rise in the price of classic cars in recent years as rich men realize that certain classic cars not only have huge appeal, [...]
Manufacture of the longest-produced model in the global automotive industry, the Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus, is finally coming to an end in Brazil after 56 years in production, which started in September 1957. The blue VW Kombi Last Edition you see here (click on the image above to enlarge) is one of 600 that will be produced before [...]
The Woodward Dream Cruise is technically a one-day event — the third Saturday of every August. But everybody knows the cruising starts far earlier, and the Friday before the main show offers a chance to enjoy a healthy stream of vintage traffic without the maddening crowds and cranium-roasting sun. Last night, we spent hours and hours on Woodward [...]
After seeing all of the mad vehicles we’ve featured this month, it’d be logical to think that every car built in the Scandinavian region is some sort of zombie-like, engine-swapped tire-destroying machine. While those bonkers cars might define the scene for many, Scandanavian car enthusiasts also have plenty of appreciation for simple, more detail-focused builds – like [...]
This 1972 BMW 3.0 CSI is a European market E9, and comes with a larger 3.5L B35 engine and 4-speed manual. The seller indicates the car has remaining wiring needs, but appears to be nearly complete. With 16″ exposed-lug Alpinas, this would be a killer looking coupe and those split front turn signal lenses are [...]
This 1977 Audi 50 GLS is the product of a serious overhaul performed on the yellow car that we featured here on BaT back in 2011. When the seller says it is the only one in the USA, we immediately thought of the yellow one… turns out it is the same car that he has built into [...]
The Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR was built as a race car for the FIA GT Championship series in 1997. To meet homologation requirements, a total of 26 road-going vehicles were built in the following years. The rarest were the open-roof roadster models, of which only six were made.
A 1994 2.5L Audi Cabriolet once owned by Diana, Princess of Wales and to be auctioned by COYS at their traditional sale at Blenheim Palace on June 29th has gone on display in London at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel. This Audi was the family car in which Diana, Princess of Wales was photographed in [...]
This 1988 BMW E28 M5 is a 160k-mile car that belonged to the original owner until about a month ago when it was purchased by the current owner from a BMW dealer. It is a clean and stock example, with some needs. Find it here on MyE28.com in New Jersey for $12,900.
It was quite difficult to settle on a theme for this week’s exotic poll. These days, there are so many cars that blur the lines between performance car and supercar, so we decided to go back in time a little to an era where things were a little bit more clear cut. To kick off [...]
And now let’s look at a car that hails from a time when men had mustaches unironically, transmissions had clutches, and Porsche engines were cooled by the air. This is a 1983 Porsche 911 SC. Introduced in 1978 back when the 911 was fighting for its future against the 928, the SC ended up being one of [...]
Says the seller: “A unique and very impressive race car with great sound. See the video below. At 330 BHP and only 1080 kgs, it makes [for] a quick race car with very easy handling because of the long wheelbase.”
This 1940 Ford 1/2-ton pick-up truck has decent paint, a nice interior, and a proper flathead V8. Some body-color artillery-style wheels and black-wall Firestone bias-ply tires would be an easy win. Find it here on eBay in Lakewood, California with bidding short of reserve and a $20k Buy-it-Now.
