Unused Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 Grabs $2.25 Million At Auction

Here’s a remarkable find–a brand-new 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR. Though this RSR looks pretty grimy in pictures, it’s actually as close to a brand-new car as you can get, with only 10 km on its odometer. The car still wears its factory-applied cosmoline rust protection—it’s that unmolested. Want it? You’re too late, unfortunately. It just sold for $2.25 million at RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba event this past weekend. RM SOTHEBY’S/TIM SCOTT Porsche made only 51 units of the model, but this particular car is actually even more exclusive as…

Jaguar E-Type barn find hidden since the 1980s heading to auction

AN early 1960s model Jaguar E-Type left hidden in a barn for 30 years is to go up for auction – and experts predict it will sale for a hefty sum. The 1962 model 3.8L coupe has been sheltered in a North Devon barn since the mid Eighties, and hasn’t been started up in more than 15 years. However despite extensive rust damage and its desperate need of a complete restoration, H&H Auctioneers have given it an estimated value between £50,000 ($65,000) and £60,000 ($77,000). One of just 1,799 models built in…

One of the Twelve Original Jaguar E-Type Lightweights Is For Sale

Back in 1964, the Jaguar E-Type Lightweight wasn’t as desirable as it is today. The company planned on building 18 Lightweights for competition use, but only managed to sell 12 examples before production ended. Since these cars are so rare, they’ve become a holy grail for classic Jaguar collectors everywhere, and almost never come up for sale. That’s why we think this particular example will be the star of the show once it goes up for auction in August.  This particular Lightweight was the factory works entry for Jaguar for…

The Ten Most Sexist Car Ads Of All Time

Different times mean different standards, but it’s still shocking to see how blatantly sexist the car industry’s ads were right up until the last two decades. Here are 10 of the most egregious examples sure to make you cringe. 10.) Hurst Dual Gate Transmission The message is clear here.

THE 10 MOST KILLER RIDES OF THE ’90S, RANKED

Hollywood was red-hot in the 1980s, turning out classic films we still love today, so the film industry hit the ’90s at full stride. The car industry, on the other hand, dragged through the ’80s trying to recover from the doldrums of the ’70s.  So the automotive industry really kicked it into gear in the ’90s and cranked out some truly great rides like the ones below.  Super-exclusive exotic cars are cool pretty much whenever they were built, so we’ve mostly left them off our list. But we did find room…

Jaguar to offer 10 ‘reborn’ E-Types

Following the success of its continuation program for the Lightweight E-Type, Jaguar has decided to offer a handful of what it’s calling “reborn” E-Types.

(Jaguar says it has all the build records and original drawings on hand.) Classic cars are all the rage right now and automakers are looking to cash in. Sister company Land Rover ran a similar restoration program for 25 original Land Rovers in 2016…

Vintage Bentley fitted with a WWII 27-litre SPITFIRE engine that sold for £500,000

You’d have to have your aesthetic sense surgically removed not to find the Meteor Bentley impressive. There’s that pristine, polished engine for a start, a 27-litre derivation of the legendary Merlin unit that once propelled Lancaster bombers and Spitfires. With 12 exhausts and 24 spark plugs, and turning out a leisurely 660bhp, the Meteor – in essence a Merlin without a supercharger – provided many British tanks with ample, dependable power. It’s equally unstressed here. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW A classic Bentley went on sale in 2012….

This Hero Hit The 1 Million Mile Mark In His Porsche 356 After Daily Driving It For 40 Years

Most cars struggle to make it much beyond 100,000 miles in their lifetimes. Deferred maintenance, rust, and general lack of care eventually do them in. This Porsche 356 is different, though, because it has just passed the fabled million-miles-driven mark. Guy Newmark, owner of this blue 1964 Porsche 356C coupe, received the car as a graduation gift from his father, who bought the Porsche from its original owner mere months after it was built. For almost 50 years, he’s been driving “Blu” anywhere he needed to go, accumulating an astonishing number of…

The Lotus Wagon You’ve Always Wanted Is up for Sale

The Lotus Cortina is considered to be one of the great small sports cars of the 1960s. Based off the normal Ford Cortina sold in Europe, the Lotus Cortina was developed under legendary Lotus Cars founder, Colin Chapman. Built for Group 2 homologation, it included many suspension and design upgrades, as well as a Lotus-built twin-cam inline-4 engine. What resulted was a successful race car and fantastic-to-drive street car. Sadly, Ford never asked Lotus to make any sporty Cortina wagons. Worry not, because someone actually built one, and it’s up…
