When it comes to the VW Beetle, I’m not the biggest fan in the world, but I tolerate them. Of course, one that’s been modified in some amusing way will keep my attention for a good amount longer. This little white Beetle had some turquoise tape stripes (clearly made of tape), cool Minilite-style wheels, and some writing on the back window. It’s nowhere near the caliber of any other car that I saw running around Carmel that evening, but this unique little Beetle (which has a “turbo” and “1000 Horsepower” according to the written notes on the back end) has a draw and a charm all its own.

We toured the Bonhams auction at the Quail Lodge during Monterey Car Week, and we found this monstrous Ferrari F40 LM sitting in all of its red glory. One of just 19 F40 LMs produced, this example was basically untouched with delivery miles and no track use to date. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but someone wound up forking out $2.2 million for it.
The Ferrari F40 is an all-time favorite among most car enthusiasts, and getting to see a rare LM up close is always spectacular. Enjoy the photos!
It’s an age-old American civil war that continues to be fought on the asphalt. Mustang vs Camaro, who will win?
When it comes to Fox Body Mustangs, most people think of the notchback Mustangs from the later era, along with stripped-out hatchbacks packing huge V8s (often with superchargers added in) screaming down the drag strip. They’re interesting cars for the era and are slowly becoming more appreciated in the Mustang community for plenty of reasons. However, this is no ordinary Fox. This Fox has been drinking steroids through an IV bag. Thanks to the McLaren body and success Ford had in racing the Mustang in the IMSA-GTO endurance class in the early Eighties, three street display cars resulted to advertise the new 5.0L V8 engine and a new set of Firestone tires. This is the second of just three built, and the only one remaining at this time. Although it’s not a normal car to see at a Concours event, it looked quite fitting on the bottom row of cars at Radnor last month, especially against the crystal-blue sky. Enjoy the photos.

We saw this blacked-out Ferrari 612 Scaglietti looking seriously sinister in Carmel, California during the festivities of Monterey Car Week. Ferrari GT cars are always classy, but those wheels made this one look especially sharp. Enjoy!
Autocar brings us an incredible race between three of the fastest vehicles on the planet, the Mclaren P1, the Porsche 918, and the Ducati 1199 Superleggera. Imagine having all of those vehicles together with a runway at your disposal, just epic!
Check out what happens!
Sweet sounding machine with no roof to quiet it down. Enjoy!
