It doesn't look all that different — a lowered hood and grille here, all-LED front lights there — but it's on the inside that the 2018 Ford Mustang makes noticeable gains on its predecessor. Behind the steering wheel sits Ford's first 12-inch, all-digital LCD dashboard, which can be customized to suit your needs and preferences — just like the drive settings and exhaust note. Its Sync Connect system lets you start, lock, unlock, and locate your Mustang using your phone, and it comes with a full suite of safety features, including pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warnings, and lane-keep assist. The Mustang's heart has always been a powerful engine, however, and the latest model doesn't disappoint there, either, with either a surprisingly powerful 2.3L EcoBoost powerplant or, of course, a 5.0L V8 in the GT.
With a substantial racing history of its own, this 1970 Porsche 917/10 Prototype was also instrumental in helping Porsche's racing team. Early on, it was used as a test mule of sorts, logging plenty of test miles both in the wind-tunnel and on the track. During the same period, it was fitted with several different engines, as well as five different body designs. The chassis was completely rebuilt in 1972 before being sold to the first of only four private owners. In the years since, it's been raced around the world, fully restored not once, but twice — in 1997 and 2014 — and is now presented in the same livery it wore during wind tunnel testing in 1971. It arrives with its yellow Bosch livery Shovel-nose and matching rear bonnet, tons of historical material, its ONS Wagenpass, a report from former factory racing driver Jürgen Barth, and a current FIA Historic Technical Passport. As the first 917 Can Am Spyder, the only "001" 917 chassis in private ownership, and with a pedigree that's second to none, this is one of the most unique racers of its time.
The shirt. The hat. The 'stache. There were plenty of elements that went in to making Tom Selleck's Magnum P.I. an iconic character. Among them was this Ferrari 308 GTS. This particular Quattrovalvole is certified by Ferrari as having been used during the 1984-85 shooting season, with low mileage indicating it was on screen mainly during light action and close ups. It's had only two owners since, with the latter keeping it in good order for the last 28 years. The interior has been re-dyed the correct shade of tan, the original Rossa Corsa paint remains intact, and with only 36,000 miles on the odometer, this would make an excellent collector's piece, regardless of its small screen past.
Inspired by the classic CJ-5, the Jeep Shortcut is a one-off Wrangler-based ode to the off-roaders of the '50s and '60s. It starts with a shortened body that also gets a new grille, hood, tailgate, wheel flares, and chrome bumpers. The modifications continue with a new exhaust, red wheels, and new performance suspension parts. It's finished with a simple interior, outfitted with two leather bucket seats with plaid inserts, a four-point safety cage, and a red ball shifter handle for the five-speed automatic that's hooked to the 3.6L V6 under the hood.
In the 1960's, Chevrolet performance tuner Bill Thomas was tasked with designing a competitor to the Shelby Cobra. He came up with the Cheetah, and this 1964 Cheetah Race Car is one of only 15 known to survive in the world today. Designed and engineered with American components, this 64' is the only Cheetah built and raced with the Corvette heavy-duty 427ci L88 aluminum-head racing engine option. This collector's item is up for sale and retains its original 4130 chromoly chassis and suspension, complete original fiberglass body, and original fiberglass and aluminum interior.
