There are plenty of other '60s-era Minis around. But few of them have a racing pedigree. And even fewer were driven by a woman. This 1963 Mini Cooper S Race Car was, with Maria Graça Moura Relvas winning the 1965 Grande Rally Benfica behind the wheel, making full use of the 1071 cc engine and four-speed gearbox. The car was later sold to Nelson De Moura of De Moura steering wheels, who outfitted one of his own in the car, and has been featured in multiple magazines. Now presented as raced in 1964, with the correct paint and patina, it's one of the finest Cooper S examples of its era.
Mid-engined, two-seat sports cars aren't generally known for their everyday drivability. The McLaren 570GT is out to change that. Based on the powerful 570S Coupé, it has the same 3.8L twin turbo V8, producing the same 562 hp, and paired to the same seven-speed seamless-shift transmission. But the interior is markedly different, thanks to an airy cockpit packed with creature comforts and filled with light from the fixed glass roof and side-opening rear hatch. The latter adds an additional 220 liters of storage space, making it a capable grocery getter, and the fine-tuned suspension and steering systems mean you won't feel like you're on the track trying to navigate the parking lot.
Its specs are the stuff of science fiction. Its looks are too. Powered by four electric motors paired with a 6.2L V8 — a system it calls the "Warp Drive" — the Arash AF10 produces an insane 2,100 hp, capable of moving its carbon chassis from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Its gearboxes are similarly advanced, with each motor getting a 2-speed box, while the V8 gets your choice of manual or paddle shift six-speed. The body is sculpted to be as slick as possible, with a fixed wing in the rear, and moving wing in the front, and a tear drop cockpit.
