GT500's aren't exactly common. Examples kept at the company are even more rare, and designated "engineering" cars are rarer still. This 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 is among the latter. One of only 11 built that year, chassis number 0425 was born at Shelby's California plant, and still features the original 7.0L V8 with twin Holley four-barrel carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, inboard headlights, push-button Ford radio, and door locks. It's got only 52,000 miles on the odometer, has undergone plenty of maintenance to ensure it remains roadworthy — like swapping out the included original wheels with after-market replacements — and has only one notable defect, a non-functioning fuel gauge. So just remember to fill up before you head out.
It's the most expensive production car in the company's history. So it only makes sense that it's the quickest, too. The Lotus 3-Eleven combines an all-new, extremely lightweight body with a supercharged V6 pumping out 450 hp to reach speeds of 180 mph and sprint from 0-60 in less than 3 seconds. Limited to just 311 units, it will be available in both Road and Race versions, the latter arriving with more aero, a different gearbox, an FIA-approved drivers seat, and the same open-air cockpit as its road-ready sibling.
Like a trimmed down prize fighter, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible arrives early next year in the best shape of its existence. A fully automatic power top makes latches and manual exertion a thing of the past and can even be opened or closed while driving at lower speeds. Equally impressive is the inclusion of a hard tonneau cover that extends over the folded roof. The most powerful Camaro to date features a 6.2-liter, V8 engine that maxes out at 455 horsepower. And thanks to the same lighter structure its hardtop counterpart employs, it weighs in around 200 pounds leaner than the model it replaces.
The DB series dates all the way back to the '50s. The Aston Martin DB9 GT celebrates this rich tradition by taking the already solid DB9 and pushing it to new heights. Powered by an all-alloy, 6.0L V12, it produces 540 hp, and routes the power to the ten-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels via a six-speed Touchtronic II transmission, allowing it to move from 0-62 in 4.5 seconds, and hit a top speed of 183 mph. Other unique features include a touchscreen infotainment system borrowed from the Vanquish, a black splitter and diffuser, and GT-specific headlight and tail light treatments.
