Only produced from 1955 till 1963, the Mercedes-Benz 190SL is an iconic roadster with nothing short of a cult following. This 1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL was originally owned by one of the founders, and president, of a 190 SL group and was completely restored in 1987. After the restoration, it hit the show circuit, piling up plenty of "Best In Show" awards during its run. In the mid 2000's the car got a new interior, soft top, and paint job, putting it right back in the upper echelon of 190SL's that are still around. A trophy for any collector, the time and money invested in this timeless automobile provide a rare opportunity to own a remarkable vehicle.
Things in the world of Minis are getting larger with the 2016 Mini Clubman. The longest and widest Mini ever is a four door vehicle, along with two split barn-doors at the rear and is large enough to fit 5 adults. The new Clubman features a TwinPower 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine, while the S boasts a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. There's even an 8-speed transmission option for the S, for softer changes, less background noise, and better fuel consumption. While it's nowhere near miniature, it's a maturation for the brand that doesn't compromise the playful persona that consumers have embraced.
The Focus line just took a huge step forward with the newly announced Ford Focus RS. The high-performance hatch boasts a 2.3L EcoBoost engine, 6-speed manual transmission, and unlike its predecessors — all-wheel drive. The combo of AWD and the turbo-charged four cylinder engine make this bad boy impressively quick, delivering well in excess of 315 horsepower potential. Add in the eye-catching exterior, and interior that features heavily bolstered Recaro sports seats — and you have what is easily the most impressive Ford Focus to date.
Limited to just 75 units, the 2015 Audi RS 5 Coupe Sport is one of the most exclusive luxury two-seaters you can own. While it's still powered by the same 4.2L, 450 hp V8 as the standard version, and still boasts the same 7-speed S tronic transmission and 4.5 second 0-60 time, it has a handful of distinct elements to help it stand out from the crowd. Features like 20-inch 5-V-spoke wheels, red brake calipers, crimson red Nappa leather inserts on the interior, and multiple exclusive paint colors.
