Created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Prancing Horse in the land of the rising sun, the Ferrari J50 is a highly limited one-off from Maranello. It's based on the 488 Spider, with new low-slung bodywork from the Ferrari Styling Center. Powered by a 680 hp version of the company's 3.9L V8 mounted in the mid-rear, it also has several other functional upgrades, including a redesigned front bumper to pump air to the more tightly packed radiators, a lowered windscreen rail that directs more air to the rear spoiler, and the dynamic full LED headlights. Only 10 examples will be built, each to the specifications of its buyer.
Designed to support long-term camping in remote locations, the Tiger Siberian Adventure Vehicle can get you nearly anywhere you want and keep you comfortable once you arrive. Set atop either a 4x4 Ford F550 or Ram 5500 chassis, the coach is built from aluminum, with a three-point mounting system for added comfort. The open layout includes a dry bath, a king- or queen-sized elevated bed, a sink, LED lighting, an entertainment system, and integrated bamboo cabinetry. It's powered by 900 amp-hours of batteries, kept charged by solar panels and powerful alternators, and the diesel-powered furnace, water heater, and stove top ensure you stay warm for as long as you have fuel.
It looks restored. But that's only because it's been sitting in storage for nearly three decades. This 1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RSH is an outstanding, if slightly imperfect, example of a classic model. One of only 17 RSH models built, it was originally decked out in "viper green", only to be changed after the fact — along with its signature duck tail engine lid — to avoid unwanted attention. The second (and present) owner added an ash tray, radio, carpets, and clock, all of which can be easily removed to return it to stock condition. Having been stored dry, the original engine and gearbox remain in excellent shape, as does the overall car, providing a terrific opportunity to restore this rare 911 to its former glory.
Winter weather doesn't have to mean leaving your muscle car in the garage. With an all-wheel drive system borrowed from the Charger, the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD handles the sleet, snow, and mid-melt slush with aplomb. The system sends 306 hp from the 3.6L V6 exclusively to the 19-inch rear wheels until it feels the need for more traction, at which point it automatically adds the front axle to the mix. It also comes equipped with paddle shifters for the eight-speed automatic, an 8.4-inch touchscreen capable of showing on-track stats like 0-60 times and G-forces, and an optional upgraded interior with Nappa leather and Alcantara seats, a performance steering wheel, and a nine-speaker, 506-watt Alpine stereo.
Although it's just a running prototype — production models aren't expected to roll off the line until 2018 — the Vanguard Roadster Motorcycle is worth getting excited about. The engine serves a dual purpose by both powering the bike and serving as its frame, giving the bike a novel look that's helped along by the integrated exhaust and low-slung, boxy tank. It also has a unitized crankcase, a tablet-like digital dash with a rear-view camera, and will be assembled in New York City at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
One of just 17 SA coupé aerodinamico models ever made, this 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Aerodynamic is an outstanding example of a very rare sports car. Meticulously restored, it's powered by its original 4.0L Colombo V12 engine that, while smaller than its predecessor, still produced the same amount of power. Notable on this model are the Pininfarina bodywork, the shorter wheelbase, and the outstanding color combination of Blu Sera exterior paint with a natural saddle leather interior.
You might be wondering how such a well-preserved racer could be this cheap. That's because it's a replica. This 1971 Alfa Romeo Giulia is a near exact copy, built out of a regular model by the same owner in order to preserve the original. It has its FIA papers for hill-climb racing, can also be used in vintage car rallies, and has just 36,828 miles on the odometer, making it ideal not just for car shows, but for actual driving, as well.
Looking much more like a traditional motorcycle than many all-electric options, the Aero E-Racer Motorcycle is a sleek compromise between a gas-powered street racer and a commuter-centric electric bike. It's powered by an electric motor from Tacita, maker of the T-Race electric rally bike, producing around 75hp, with a range of 40 miles. It sits on a tubular chrome moly steel frame, has a front-mounted GoPro for capturing your rides, and is finished with carbon/kevlar body work, an iPhone-based dashboard, and a roomy fine leather seat.
George Bamford, the man behind the Bamford Watch Department, knows a thing or many about customization. In taking a break from his normal Rolex duties, he set his sights on a car — the Bentley x Bamford Mulsanne Speed, to be exact. Created in collaboration with Bentley's Mulliner design department, the car features accents in BWD's signature blue, as well as PVD-treated, blacked-out wing vents, badges, and grille, a customized analog clock, seats covered in a mix of leather and Anthracite cloth, and a special carbon fiber watch case that sits in the space normally reserved for a cocktail kit. As you might expect, it's Bamford's personal car, and one-of-a-kind.
Exploring the far reaches of the world doesn't have to mean roughing it. Bliss Mobil Expedition Vehicles offer luxurious appointments built atop some of the world's most capable trucks. They range from 11 to 20 feet in length, and can be built on a wide range of 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 base vehicles. Inside, they offer beds, bathrooms, lounging and cooking areas, and even wall-mounted iMacs, and since the entire cabin is built as an all-in-one unit, it can easily be pulled off the truck and placed on a truck, train, ship, plane, or just on the ground. Roof-mounted solar panels provide power to the lithium-ion batteries, and external racks offer space for bikes, spare tires, or extra supplies.
With a carbon fiber chassis that's 70% lighter than steel and an aerodynamic body that delivers insane grip the Nio EP9 Electric Supercar isn't just fast — it's one of the fastest EVs ever built. Its powertrain delivers one megawatt of power to the wheels, the equivalent of 1,342 hp. Four individual gearboxes and huge tires let it go from 0-124 mph in just 7.1 seconds and hit a top speed of nearly 195 mph, and a three-position active wing system works in concert with the body to give it twice the downforce of an F1 car. Custom brakes let you get the thing stopped in a hurry, an all-digital cockpit with multiple screens keep key info available at a glance, and the interchangeable battery system lets you log full days at the track — tracks like the Nurburgring, where the car posted an EV record-breaking lap of just 7 minutes and 05.12 seconds.
With a carbon fiber body and simple, driver-focused interior, the Rezvani Beast Alpha doesn't need a massive powerplant to deliver eye-popping performance. Instead, it's turbocharged 2.4L engine outputs 500 hp, enough to propel the sub-2,000 pound car from 0-60 in just 3.2 seconds. Other signature features include an aggressive, aerodynamic body, a targa-style top, and crazy SideWinder doors that pop out and slide forward to provide entry.
Obviously classic, yet completely brand new. The Jaguar XKSS is being reborn by Jaguar Classic in a limited run that replaces the "lost" cars that burnt up in a fire at the company's Coventry plant in February 1957. This isn't just an old body bolted onto a current production chassis, either. Each of the nine cars is being built by hand to the exact same specifications as the 16 examples completed before the conflagration. To prove their commitment, a one-off has been completed and is on display at LA's Petersen Museum ahead of the nine production cars slated for delivery next year. Fully certified by Jaguar, it's the rare chance to experience something nearly 60 years old, as it was when it was brand new.
With swooping lines and a hand-finished interior, the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is set to become one of the world's most exclusive convertibles. It's powered by a 6.0L V12 biturbo engine producing 621 hp, paired with a 7G-Tronic transmission for an exhilarating driving experience. Yet the Nappa leather-covered, yacht-like interior makes riding in any of the three other seats just as enjoyable. It comes in one of three colors — Zircon Red, Cote d'Azur Blue, or designo Diamond White — and includes not only a car cover to match the soft top but a luggage set made from the same leather as the interior. Limited to just 300 examples worldwide, with only 75 units available in the U.S.
Built for off-road performance, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 offers big capability in a mid-sized package. The heavily modified truck sits on a track that's been widened by three and a half inches, with a lifted suspension and new cast-iron control arms for greater durability. It's also the first off-roader to get Chevy's advanced Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve damper technology for improved handling. Rockers have been added to make clearing rocks and obstacles easier, the front and rear bumpers massaged for greater clearance, and the 17-inch rims wrapped in mud-gobbling 31-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires. The standard version is powered by a 3.6L V6 pumping out 308 hp, and a diesel powerplant is available for those looking for more range.
The existing Vanquish was already great. Instead of a complete re-think, the Aston Martin Vanquish S makes several subtle tweaks to up the performance of the already powerful GT. The 6.0L V12 gets a new intake system, boosting its output from 565 to 592 hp, and the re-calibrated eight-speed transmission delivers faster shifts and a more refined in-town experience. The suspension has likewise been updated for more precise control in sport modes, and the aerodynamics have been plussed with a front splitter and rear diffuser crafted from exposed carbon fiber. The finished package is a refined yet exhilarating tourer that's as comfortable on cross-country drives as it is on twisty mountain roads.
Billed as a five-seat sports car, a performance car, and an SUV all rolled into one, the Jaguar I-Pace Concept serves as a preview of an upcoming model set to arrive in 2018. Its all-electric platform was designed and engineered in-house, with front and rear motors providing nearly 400 hp and a 0-60 time of roughly four seconds. The battery pack sits below the cabin, opening up plenty of extra passenger room, and can hit an 80 percent charge in just 90 minutes while providing a range of over 300 miles fully juiced. The interior is similarly advanced, with a pair of touchscreens giving you an at-a-glance look at key information, and, of course, it still offers the ride and handling you'd expect from the legendary British brand.
With the performance and aggressive lines of a true sports car and a serviceable backseat, the 2018 Audi S5 Coupe strikes a delicate balance between fun and practical luxury. The racier version of the standard A5, it's powered by a 354 hp 3.0 TFSI V6 engine that, when paired with the eight-speed Tiptronic transmission and legendary quattro all-wheel drive, can propel the car from 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds. It's also loaded with tech, from the multiple driving modes and available full-color head-up display to the 3D LED headlights and advanced driver assistance systems. Arriving at dealerships next year.
Sometimes companies drop concept vehicles with tons of details and no hope of ever getting made. Sometimes, you get virtually no details but assurances a real-world version is coming. The BMW HP4 Race Motorcycle is among the latter. BMW Motorrad's president has promised that the production model will have the same full carbon fiber main frame and carbon fiber rims shown in the preview, but that's about it. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until next spring for more information, like when you can place your order for a highly-limited, hand-manufactured example of your own.
Like a piece of Ikea furniture, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 Motorcycle has a funny-sounding name and an eye-catching design. It's powered by an advanced, single-cylinder 375cc engine that outputs 44 hp. Performance is helped along by the lightweight steel-trellis frame, sleek bodywork, and hybrid steel/aluminum exhaust. LED lights provide visibility after dark, a Bosch ABS system ensures you can slow down safely, and the long single seat only adds to the stripped-down, progressive look. Arriving in autumn 2017.
There aren't a lot of details to go on when it comes to this 1970 Volvo 1800e. It looks to be in very nice condition with recently reupholstered seats, apparently still runs, and has an "unknown" number of miles. Should that last part chase you away, consider that a 1966 model of its highly similar predecessor, the 1800s, holds the world record for most miles driven in non-commercial service, logging its three millionth in 2013. Assuming the original engine, it's powered by a B20E powerplant making 128 hp, good for a top speed of 118 mph and a 0-62 time of 9.5 seconds, making this more of a stylish tourer than a true sports car.
Mixing classic style with modern components, the Dodge Shakedown Challenger is a unique hot rod that's more than the sum of its parts. Underneath the slightly modified 1971 Challenger body lies a modern 6.4L HEMI engine from Mopar, delivering 485 hp to the road via a six-speed transmission. The custom suspension is lowered, yet still makes room for the SRT Hellcat 19- and 20-inch wheels, the headlamps and taillamps come from a 2017 Challenger, and the interior has up-to-date gauges with front seats and a steering wheel taken from a Dodge Viper. The concept is clad in "Bitchin' Black" with satin black details.
Created to show off all the extras available through the company's exclusive program, the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus Exclusive Edition is arguably the most desirable R8 yet. Its signature feature is a laser high-beam module that augments the LED high beams with a low, wide beam of light produced by four high-intensity diodes. Other highlights include a Quantum Gray livery, gloss anthracite grille and wheels, signature orange elements for contrast, and racing shell seats. Limited to just 25 examples.
It uses a 2016 Land Cruiser body, but the Toyota Land Speed Cruiser is no sleeper. Literally every single component on the truck has been changed in an effort to make it as fast as possible. That includes a pair of enormous turbos flanking either side of the 5.7L V8, an ATI transmission, a specially-designed hood, and an obviously lowered body. The result is a one-off beast that makes over 2,000 hp and can reach speeds of 220 mph, yet still sorta looks like an SUV from the outside.
Originally built as concepts to test a new engine, the XK120 proved far too popular with the public to keep out of production. This 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster is a great example of the classic racer, named for its original top speed goal. The black exterior and burgundy red interior both benefitted from a restoration done in 2007, and the matching numbers 3.4L engine, brakes, and other mechanicals received a comprehensive overhaul around the same time. With just over 40,000 miles on the odometer, it's primed to bring its next owner joy for many more.
Designed specifically for getting surfers to and from the most remote beaches, the Chevrolet x Hurley Colorado Z71 Truck is a far cry from the woodies and buses synonymous with the beaches of the past. Special additions to this concept include a custom rack packed with a pair of Pyzel boards, a Bimini-style bedcover, a bed-mounted Thule rack for drying wetsuits and storing drinks, and interior seats done in ventiprene, a breathable material similar to the neoprene used in wetsuits. It's finished with a custom exhaust, off-road lights, and a custom Seafoam Green paint job.
Given the company's past track record, you'd do well not to get your hopes up for the Fisker EMotion Sedan — although that won't be easy. Using graphene-infused battery technology, it gets a claimed driving range of 400 miles, in addition to a top speed of 161 mph. Hardware for fully autonomous operation is also on the docket, as well as more interior space than its competitors, infotainment systems for both front and rear passengers, and a sporty body that's both aerodynamic and aggressive. Expect to see a fully-working prototype sometime next year, with further details arriving after that.
Designed for SWAT teams, the Inkas Toyota Land Cruiser Armored Vehicle uses the Land Cruiser 79 platform as a base for a rugged tactical vehicle. Powered by a 4.5L diesel V8 engine paired to a five-speed manual transmission, it can haul up to eight passengers plus a turret operator, with gun ports all the way around the perimeter and two hatches for making a quick escape. All key components are protected with composite lightweight armor, and it's outfitted with a siren, PA system, wire mesh glass protection, external cameras, and an electronic night vision system, but it's the versatility of the Land Cruiser base that makes it truly unique.
Capable of seating seven full-sized humans, the Volkswagen Atlas SUV is a great alternative to a traditional van. Powered by either a TSI turbo four-cylinder or VR6 engine, it has enough power to handle the highway with ease while making fill-ups a little less frequent. It also has an eight-speed transmission, and can be outfitted with extras like 4Motion all-wheel-drive, a Digital Cockpit that lets you configure the gauges to your liking, and a Fender-branded audio system with a 480 Watt amp and 12 speakers. Arriving next Spring.
