David Nicoll was a crook. He bribed and cheated his way to amass an incredible fortune. And like most schemers – his bubble burst. Why does that matter? Because now his collection of vintage muscle cars is going up for auction, and it’s bound to fetch some big bids.
Ok, so we knew that there was no way Hellcat was going to top the Dodge lineup for long, at least not with the Viper still in the picture. According to a new report form Allpar.com, Dodge is considering a supercharged V10 for the new snake.
We heard a rumor earlier in the week that Chevy might be considering a mid-engine layout for its new Corvette ZR1. That rumor comes via Motor Trend, and, while we take it with a grain of salt, there is some history to back it up. After all, the idea of a mid-engined Corvette has been around since 1959. The question is, can it be successful in the market?
If you’re looking to get behind the wheel of the new Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider, then you better act fast as it looks like there will only be 458 produced. Just enough to match its badge, of course. The report comes from 4WheelNews, which also says that the Speciale Spider name is likely to be dropped when the car finally sees production.
If it looks like a race car, and sounds like a race car, it must be a race car. Lamborghini’s latest track toy is the all-new Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo, which made its debut at Pebble Beach this past weekend.
Is there anything more saddening than a banged-up Italian supercar? For the owner of this pearl white Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, the answer to that question is a definite no.
I’m sure most of you are still in awe at the amazing engineering feat that is the Ferrari LaFerrari. But c’mon, we all can’t help but wonder what the successor to that amazing car is going to be. One designer shared our sentiment.
The fact that the cell phones are the product everyone seeks to one-up these days says something about the times we live in. In the mid-60s it wasn’t phone or a computer, but muscle cars that spurred intense competition between manufacturers. In those long-gone days of 30-cent gasoline, the king of the mountain was the Pontiac GTO Tempest. It was confronted by a number of challengers seeking to knock the crown off its head. Among them was the legendary 1967 Plymouth GTX, which gained fame thanks to its exceptional styling, which was matched with one of the quickest 0-60 times in automotive history.
If you were out and about at any of the Pebble Beach auctions this weekend, we hope you brought some cash. And a lot of it. Alongside the world’s most expensive Ferrari, a brand new BMW i8 with special Concours d’Elegance enhancements went for a mind-boggling $825,000. That’s nearly six-times MSRP.
No matter where you look, the talk of the town remains that Ferrari 250 GTO that sold for $38 million at Pebble Beach. We love it too, but it’s not the only rare breed that’s crossing the block these days.
