It's one thing to take a classic car and make it look modern — but it's quite another to take a new car and make it look classic. That's the idea behind the Ferrari 340 Competizione ($TBA). Built to pay homage to the 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico — which was limited to just three examples — the Competizione is a one-off that began life as a Ferrari 456 GT, and kept its 470hp, 5.4L V12 and six-speed manual while gaining new aerodynamics, suspension, brakes, an interior that recalls the 340 Mexico while retaining some modern niceties, and, of course, new aluminum bodywork.
The electric-powered revolution continues with the Fisker Surf ($TBA). The crossover cousin of the gorgeous Karma, the Surf is a five-door affair, offering plenty of room for passengers and luggage on the inside, a range of 50 miles operating solely on the 175kW generator and 300 when using both it and the 260 hp turbocharged gas engine, a 0-60 mph time of just just 5.9 seconds (7.9 in electric-only mode), a top speed of 125 mph, 22 inch Circuit Blade wheels, bright orange Brembo brakes, an LED brake light, an incorporated roof spoiler, and an optional roof-mounted solar panel that also functions as a sunroof thanks to its dark-tinted translucence. Just think of it as a Chevy Volt with an added dose of class.
Yes, it has a super-long, funny-sounding name, but one step on the accelerator and you won't care a bit. The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale ($TBA) sits atop the Gallardo stable thanks to a weight reduction program that trims over 150 lbs. off the already svelte LP 560-4 by adding details like a carbon composite spoiler and hood, a 570hp V10, all-wheel-drive, and a robotized egear six-speed transmission with paddle shifters, all of which help to propel the car from 0-62 in just 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of just under 199 mph. If you're wanting one, you'd best cash in those lottery tickets now, as just 150 units will be available worldwide.
