If the words "1957 Ferrari" aren't enough to get you excited, we can't help you. The 1957 Ferrari 250 TR ($TBA) is one of only 22 of the very rare racers built, with Speed Racer-esque pontoon fenders, black paint with white numbers and a black nose, red seats with white piping, a gated shifter, and racing heritage that includes a fourth place finish in the 1000 km Buenos Aires in January 1958. It's an absolute classic.
Be your own favorite race car driver in the Ariel Atom. Handcrafted and lacking doors, a roof, or windows, the Atom is truly a racing machine, with a curb weight of only 1,400 lbs. and up to 300 hp, pushing 0-60 times into the sub 3 second range and 0-100 times below 11 seconds. Other features include a powder coated steel tubing chassis, double unequal length wishbone suspension, a drive by wire 2.0L Honda K20 engine, and a 6-speed close-ratio synchromesh transmission.
With no windshield or roof, "swing-wing" doors, and an aggressively styled carbon fiber body, the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss (€750,000, ~$1,050,000) practically screams "speed." Powered by a 650 hp supercharged V8, this unique vehicle — limited to just 75 cars and named after the legendary driver Stirling Moss — can achieve a top speed of 217 mph, and features a five-speed automatic transmission and a retractable airbrake. Stunning.
