Audi R8 GT

We'll be perfectly honest: the first thing running through our heads as we were passed the other day by an Audi R8 doing roughly 110mph wasn't "Hey, that thing needs more power." Yet that's exactly what you'll find in the new Audi R8 GT ($256,000). This super-villain version of Audi's flagship sports car features 560 hp, up from 525 in the "stock" model, a curb weight that's 220 lbs. less than the normally aspirated version, a zero to 62 time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed that's just a hair off 200 mph. If the quarter-million price tag is a little out of your reach this month, you can always win a day on the track in an R8 thanks to Tony Stark.

  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off Ferrari

    In one of the more disappointing developments in recent movie memorabilia memory, it turns out the Ferrari 250GT Spyder California made famous in Ferris Bueller's Day Off wasn't really a Ferrari. Better news? If you have the means, you can now pick it up for yourself. The Ferris Bueller's Day Off Ferrari ($TBA; Auction) is actually a painstakingly built replica, made by Modena Design & Development, of El Cajon, California in 1985. Apart from having the same wheelbase as the original, much has changed in this convincing recreation, all the way down to its engine — a Ford V8 instead of the original Colombo-designed V12. Now that is disappointing.

  • Hennessey Venom GT

    It's one thing to build a supercar from the ground up. It's something else to take a sports car, break it apart, lengthen it, and put it back together with a different engine inside. Yet that's exactly the case with the Hennessey Venom GT ($TBA). Limited to just 10 per year, the ultra-exclusive Venom GT is based on the Lotus Elise, but is powered by the Corvette ZR1's supercharged 6.2 liter LS9 V8. Hennessey has tuned the stock engine's output up to 725hp, but will also offer twin-turbo versions putting out 1,000 and 1,200hp, respectively. Other Ferrari-fighting features include a six-speed Ricardo gearbox, 15-inch carbon ceramic brake rotors, a programmable traction control system, an active aerodynamics system with adjustable rear wing, and massive Michelin PS2 tires. The Bat signal awaits.
