If owning an Aston Martin Vanquish isn't quite exclusive enough for you, perhaps you'll find the Aston Martin Centenary Edition Vanquish ($TBA) more to your liking. Created to celebrate the company's 100th anniversary, it's limited to just 100 examples worldwide, and features a special paint finish, sterling silver badges, an interior in Deep Soft black leather with contrasting silver stitching, and sterling silver sill plaques. Also included is a special presentation box with two glass keys, two key pouches, silver cufflinks featuring the Aston Martin script, a solid silver pen, Bang & Olufsen headphones, and a silver polishing cloth, presumably to take care of all the silver that comes with it.
Welcome back, Stingray. Reviving the classic moniker, the new 2014 Corvette Stingray ($TBA) represents a complete break from the prior Corvette, with just two parts shared between them. Highlights of the new Stingray include an all-new 6.2L V8 engine good for 450 horsepower and a 0-60 time of less than four seconds, a new aluminum frame, generous use of carbon fiber in the interior, hood, and removable roof panel, and, of course, breathtaking looks. Coming to dealers this fall.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful automobiles ever created by the Italian luxury carmaker, the 1955 Maserati A6G/2000 Spyder ($4.5 million) is a picture of automotive elegance. One of the only convertibles ever produced in this model, the car features a two-liter straight six producing 180 brake horsepower. This particular car has been lovingly restored to its original condition, with beautiful paint and bodywork, as well as an immaculately-appointed interior. The car was originally built in very limited numbers, and manufactured by a variety of Italian coachbuilders — while this one in particular was constructed by the legendary Carrozzeria Zagato.
