As if the Ford GT wasn't incredible enough off the factory line, the guys at Galpin Auto Sports went and made it into a truly-modern super car, the Galpin Ford GTR1 ($1,024,000). Based on the GT's original chassis, the GTR1 has been completely reworked, from the restyled carbon fiber body, to the obscenely-powerful engine. The mid-mounted 5.4-liter V8 engine sports twin turbochargers, and an output of 1,024 horsepower and 739 lb-ft of torque — all that power mixed with a weight of only 3,000 pounds means it can hit over 225 mph, 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, and 100 mph in 6.8 seconds. A nearly-perfect weight distribution of 51/49 and carbon ceramic brakes help it handle as well as it moves, and a limited run of only six cars make it as exclusive as it is fast.
Everyone's favorite Italian sports car has just gotten a lot easier to love, as the Ferrari 458 Speciale ($TBA). This re-imagining of the original features Ferrari's most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 to date — a 4.5-liter engine that produces 596 horsepower (up from 562 in its predecessor) and 398 lb-ft of torque. With all that power, it'll push to 62 mph in a flat three seconds, and 124 mph in just over nine. Responsive aerodynamic panels help it handle at high speed, a Side Slip angle Control system gives it intelligent control through turns, and specially-designed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires give it the best response time and highest lateral acceleration of any Ferrari.
Own a rare piece of German racing history, the 1964 Volkswagen Pick-up With Porsche Formula V ($TBA). Both vehicles have been completely and carefully restored, making them a perfect show piece, or a vintage race driver's dream. The featherweight Porsche Formula V — based on a pre-1963 VW Beetle, and powered by a 1.2-liter engine producing 40hp — can reach speeds up to 100mph, and is fully-race-ready. The pick-up has an upgraded 200hp 2.4-liter engine, making it a capable transport truck restored to concours quality. [Scouted by Erik]
As if their new F-Type wasn't hot enough, Jaguar went and turned it into a track car with the one-off Project 7 Concept ($TBA). Built on the F-Type's rigid aluminum chassis, it has a more-powerful supercharged 5.0-liter V8 producing 550hp through an eight-speed quick shift transmission. A fairing behind the driver recalls early LeMans cars, and for good reason — the "seven" moniker reflects the carmaker's seven wins at LeMans (two in the Jaguar D-Type, which shared both the fairing and the blue paintwork). Further reinforcing its track heritage, the interior has a single seat with a four-point racing harness (a helmet holder and a custom racing helmet replace the second seat). Additional improvements include carbon fiber throughout, a ceramic-finished free-flow exhaust system, a lower ride height, and adjusted suspension.
