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.
This is a Mitsubishi Celeste from the seventies. It’s the last car we saw at this year’s Geneva Motor Show before leaving the building, and we wanted it more than most new things around. Now I know this was sold in North America as the Plymouth/Dodge Arrow, but in Central Europe, this old Lancer Coupe is as [...]
No matter what your feelings toward the Volkswagen Beetle, you should respect the little runabout. With 75 years of production under its belt and some 21 million units unleashed on the world, odds are everyone knows someone with a Beetle. The crew at Petrolicious has finally gotten around to paying homage to the ubiquitous rear-engine German machine in [...]
Although production of the Impala has stopped and restarted a couple of times, it remains one of Chevrolet’s most revered nameplates—and America’s annual sales leader at various times. But the highly successful cars of the 1950s and ’60s were followed by a string of uninspired models that largely turned “Impala” into a synonym for “rental.” [...]
This 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5 (Chassis ZARAA6694F1007102) is a well-known car in the NorCal rally scene, having participated in two Snowball Rallies and two Faultline 500s (it is too new for the Melee, so the seller uses other cars for that event). The car is a well maintained driver, includes two sets of wheels [...]
This 1959 MGA Twin Cam roadster is described as one of 679 1959 models meant for the U.S. market and is said to be rust-free and accident-free. The seller rates it a 9.5+ mechanically and it comes with a thick folder of receipts documenting the work done. Find it here on eBay in Pottstown, Pennsylvania with bidding [...]
It may not be a dark green Mustang, but this is your chance to own a piece of history from the legendary Steve McQueen flick Bullitt. As long as you’re prepared to pay a million dollars for it, anyway. Everyone knows Bullitt, right?
To qualify in this exclusive geezer group, the car must be built on a platform at least 25 years old. Engines can change, there can be facelifts, new materials, new names, whatever, but the fundamental platform must still remain the same. So, yes, while there have been Mustangs, Corvettes, Suburbans, etc. since the 60s, it’s [...]
Join us for a moment in putting on our way-back hats, zeroing in on the late 1980s. Imagine that you’re in your bedroom. Look over at the wall across from your bed.
The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars of all time, and to celebrate the car’s first 50 years, Porsche has released a stunning set of photos showing how far the 911 has come from the original back in 1963 to its current 991 generation. Unlike the recent 60-year photo spread that Chevrolet put together for the Corvette, though, Porsche’s gallery [...]
Ever since the photos of the BMW 3-Series GT dropped this week, I’ve been thinking a lot about hatchbacks. Hatchback design is hard to get right. Sportscars are too, definitely, but there’s a lot involved with getting a hatchback correctly.
