The original Batmobile from the TV show, a highly modified 1959 Ford Futura customized by George Barris, is arguably the most iconic car in Hollywood history. Next month, the OG Batmobile goes on the auction block complete with built-in Batphone, Bat Smoke, BatScope, and all the other Bat gadgets. How much do you think it will go for? Auction begins Saturday, January 19th.
Who doesn’t like a topless Italian? The latest addition to Lamborghini’s line of sexy supercars is the Aventador Roadster, a 700-horse, V12 coupe with a removable carbon fiber roof. Like its fixed-roof sibling, this new Aventador also features a 7-speed paddleshift gearbox, snaps 0-60 in 3 flat, and boasts a top speed of 217mph. Would you?
Originally designed for the military as the M37, the iconic Dodge Power Wagon is one of the meanest American trucks ever produced—a favorite of collector’s and 4X4 purists. Now you can get a completely restored and updated custom Power Wagon from Wyoming-based master builders, Legacy Classic Trucks. Their super heavy-duty customs make those lifted Tundras & Titans look like toys.
Half Quad & half Jet-Ski, the Quadski is a new, American-made amphibious vehicle that can hit speeds of 45 MPH on both land and water. The brainchild of Michigan-based Gibbs Sport Amphibians, the 175-horsepower and very James Bond-esque ATV goes on sale in November.
A 740 horsepower Benz coupe painted a chrome-Bieber blue is sure to turn some heads as it speeds past at 155 MPH. But one key detail that will escape detection at that speed is the fact that this thing is electric. True. The SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, due out next summer, marks the end of the electric-equals-boring era.
Maserati came out swinging at the Paris International Motor Show this week, with the unveiling of their all-new GranCabrio MC. The open roof coupe pairs the bold lines and low stance of Maserati racing design with the long-haul comfort of their GranTurismo tourer. A 470-horse V8 and 6-speed ZF Automatic tranny mean this thing will move, too.
With the recent release of Aston Martin’s astounding Vanquish model, followed now by the all-new DB9 coupe, the British car brand is making bold moves. Available in both a coupe & convertible, the luxurious DB9 is packed with a 510-horse V12 and features standard equipment like Carbon-ceramic brakes and a Touchtronic 2 paddle-shift transmission.
The jury is still out on that ground-scraping, squirrel scoop grill but overall, Lexus’ new LF-CC coupe is a serious contender for our “Handsomest Hybrid of 2013” award. Fluid lines on the exterior, incredible high-tech design inside, and the potent performance of a low-emission, 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain make this mid-size coupe a far cry from those wimpy 1st-gen hybrids we drove out of nothing but sheer guzzler’s guilt.
Nope, not the new Hummer. Guess again. It’s a Conquest. They build handcrafted SUVs & their latest is the Evade. Despite looking a bit like an armored-car, which is their specialty, this nearly $600K, Ford-powered brute is all about luxury. In addition to front and rear night vision cameras, it’s got a plush limo-style interior and 3 sunroofs.
