One of less than 300 built, this 1984 DeTomaso Pantera GT5 is an excellent example of this once-overlooked sports car. Powered by a 351-cid V8 engine linked to a five-speed ZF manual transaxle, it combined reliability with Italian design. This particular model underwent an exhaustive $85,000 restoration, and as such its black paint, distinctive GT5 bodywork — complete with optional rear wing — burgundy interior, gated shifter, and Veglia gauges showing 21,000 km are all in a show-ready state.

With a sleek body from Marcello Gandini at Bertone and a powerful, high-revving 2.6L dry-sump V8 engine, this 1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal is a surprisingly affordable piece of classic Italian automotive design. This particular car was delivered new to France and imported to the UK in 1989, and has under 45,000 km on its odometer. Well maintained over the years by previous owners — including one former mechanic — it comes with an extensive history file that makes it a solid candidate for restoration.
One of only 368 automatic hardtop Hemi Cudas built that year, this 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda is a remarkable piece of muscle car lore. Its 426 Hemi warranty replacement block produces 425 hp, linked to the rear wheels via a model-correct 727 TorqueFlite transmission and Sure Grip differential. Its bold B5 Blue Metallic paint job is enhanced by black side stripes, color-matching front bumper and racing mirrors, and 15-inch steel wheels finished in the same color and wrapped in period-correct Goodyear Polyglas tires. In total, it's a show-ready example, with a blue interior that's as bold and well-kept as the exterior, making it even more pleasurable to drive.
Fewer than 90 102s and 103s were ever built, so this 1955 Pegaso Tipo Z-102B is already rare. The fact that it's one of just seven built with coachwork by Saoutchik, and it becomes even more exclusive. Powered by a dual overhead cam V8 engine mated to a five-speed transaxle, it was a groundbreaking setup for the period. Several owners have enjoyed this example over the years, at one point passing through the hands of noted car enthusiast and casino legend Bill Harrah, who had a high-level restoration performed — one of two restorations it's seen throughout its life. As a result, it is in excellent condition and a Concours-ready example of a highly limited classic.
