Proof that Aston Martin made the 2017 V12 Vantage S for driving enthusiasts and not wannabe auto-pilots: a manual transmission. More specifically: A 7-speed short shifter with a dog-leg first gear, a racing-style configuration that puts gears 2-7 into a quick shifting H pattern. Only 100 of these high performance tire-burners will be imported to the USA.
Custom car builder Trans Am Depot has teamed up with Burt Reynolds to design an updated version of the Pontiac Trans Am he drove in the 1977 film Smokey And The Bandit. It starts with a new Chevy Camaro that is transformed to resemble the Bandit-mobile in every way possible, from the giant firebird hood graphic to the retro-inspired Snowflake wheels. And with 840 horsepower, the Smokey’s will have a tough time catching you, too. Only 77 will be built.
This latest version of the SkyRunner can be transformed from an all-terrain vehicle to a lightweight sports aircraft in a matter of minutes. Picture it: one minute you’re ripping down the trail kicking up dirt, then next, you’re flying it over the river at 55 mph to the other side. Or climbing up to 10,000 feet elevation and flying home instead of driving.

To celebrate its 100th birthday, Lamborghini has created a car truly worthy of the occasion. The 770-horsepower Centario is the most powerful Lambo ever made and features a full carbon fiber body. To go with the neck-snapping speeds: 0-62 in 2.8 & a top-end of more than 217 MPH, the Centenario also has a 10-inch touchscreen in the console with Apple AirPlay as standard equipment. Only 40 will be built.
McLaren’s is describing its newest supercar, the 570GT, as “the most luxurious and refined of any McLaren to date.” Not only that, it’s practical, too, featuring a more spacious cabin and additional storage through a side-entry glass hatch.
