It's a brand new model. It just doesn't look like it. Created as a kick-off to the company's 60th anniversary celebrations, the Caterham Seven Sprint combines modern manufacturing with '60s-inspired styling. Powered by an 80hp, three-cylinder Suzuki engine, the nostalgia begins before you even step into the car, with flared front wings and individual rear lights that recall the earliest Seven models. Inside, there's a wood-rimmed steering wheel, classic instrument layout, and interior panels, dash, and seat upholstery finished in hand-stitched scarlet red. It's limited to just 60 examples, and is available in one of six colors originally on offer for the '66/'67 model year, including Cream, Misty Blue, and, of course, British Racing Green.
Like its hard-topped sibling, the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster was created to mark the 100th anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini's birth. It also shares the same naturally aspirated V12 pumping out 770 hp, the rear-wheel steering, carbon fiber body, and CarPlay-ready 10.1-inch touchscreen. Where it differs is the open-air driving experience and arguably sleeker styling, but sadly, it's also limited to just 20 units, all of which have already been spoken for.
Originally created in the 70s for the Trans Am racing series, Dodge is going deep into their muscle car heritage and amping up performance with the 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A. It starts with a 5.7-liter V8, cranking out 375 horsepower. If that's not enough torque, upgrade to the 392 for up to 113 more horsepower. The new version pays homage to the original with a satin black painted hood, bodyside stripes, factory-installed hood pins, and limited-production Green Go and Yellow Jacket color options. Available in three models, production is due to begin this fall.
Open air, nearly open wheeled, and ready for an open throttle, the Caterham Seven 310 might be the most fun you can have for the price. Born from the company's racing efforts, it's powered by a 1.6L Ford Sigma Ti-VCT engine, mated to a five-speed gearbox. Thanks to the aluminum-plated body with composite panels and other lightweight components, it moves from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds and can hit a top speed of 127 mph. The interior is predictably spartan, but when you're having this much fun driving, you don't have time to stare at the dash.
