They're well known for taking vintage vehicles and transforming them into modern marvels, but ICON's The Derelicts ($TBA) line forgoes the upgraded exterior to create something truly unique. On the outside of each one-off vehicle, you'll find the same worn, vintage exterior that you might see on a junkyard specimen, but upgraded underneath with new interiors, modern chassis, electrical components and power trains. The example above is a 1952 Chevy Deluxe Business Man's coupe, which has been tricked out with an Art Morrison powder-coated chassis, ABS brakes, a 430hp Camaro 6.2 LS3 engine, and exotic interior materials; expect others, including models based on a 1939 Nash and a 1967 Rolls Royce, to make an appearance in the coming months.
It's one thing to take a classic car and make it look modern — but it's quite another to take a new car and make it look classic. That's the idea behind the Ferrari 340 Competizione ($TBA). Built to pay homage to the 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico — which was limited to just three examples — the Competizione is a one-off that began life as a Ferrari 456 GT, and kept its 470hp, 5.4L V12 and six-speed manual while gaining new aerodynamics, suspension, brakes, an interior that recalls the 340 Mexico while retaining some modern niceties, and, of course, new aluminum bodywork.
Yes, it has a super-long, funny-sounding name, but one step on the accelerator and you won't care a bit. The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale ($TBA) sits atop the Gallardo stable thanks to a weight reduction program that trims over 150 lbs. off the already svelte LP 560-4 by adding details like a carbon composite spoiler and hood, a 570hp V10, all-wheel-drive, and a robotized egear six-speed transmission with paddle shifters, all of which help to propel the car from 0-62 in just 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of just under 199 mph. If you're wanting one, you'd best cash in those lottery tickets now, as just 150 units will be available worldwide.
