The 928 isn’t exactly the crown jewel of the Porsche legacy but this one that Tom Cruise drove in the film Risky Business will get a lot more at auction than the one your aging bachelor uncle is planning to sell on Craigslist but also way less than one of Cruise’s monthly alimony payments. Bidding begins July 28, 2012.

Surprisingly, this is not the new Batmobile. It’s the first production model from Spain’s supercar company Aspid. With a spaceframe chassis and composite body panels, the GT-21’s BMW V8 will rip 0-60 sub three and boasts a top speed near 200MPH. It’s due out in 2014 with no word on the pricetag yet.
Land Rover has just introduced a pair of special edition war wagons. The limited edition XTech comes in either a 3-door or 5-door model featuring brute utilitarian looks, custom paint colors, blacked-out trim, roof, & wheels as well as their torquey turbo-diesel motor & 6-speed manual tranny.
You know how only certain guys can pull off wearing white jeans? Like male models and rock stars … Well, the same sort of applies to driving a white convertible (with a red ragtop). Aston Martin just dropped the 2013 V12 Vantage Roadster & it’s a lot meaner than it looks. With its enormous V12 and a top speed just shy of 200MPH, it’s more than just pretty. It’s pretty sick. You got what it takes to pull it off?
Convertible cars have this stigma—that they’re better suited for a female driver. But then along came the Spider. Specifically, the 600-horse McLaren MP4-12C Spider, a 32-valve, twin turbo land rocket that nobody can seriously call a woman’s car. And even if they did, you wouldn’t hear them with the top down at 200 MPH.
Mercedes’ new CLS variant is called the Shooting Brake, a classic term for a car made for sporting; a cross between a wagon and a coupe. This car is all class. It looks fast, it is fast, and at the same time it’s an S-Class quality luxury cruise ship that will fit the whole family.
Like all bikes from Hamburg, Germany-based builder Axel Budde, this Guzzi café racer is a one off. Aside from that rebuilt V11 motor, just about every other part on the bike is custom, handmade or re-purposed from a treasure chest of 80s Italian parts. The balanced silhouette, power, and undeniable appeal of this bike beg the question: Why don’t any new bikes look this cool? Source
If you’re not fast on the draw, that guy who drops his kids off at school in a spotless Land Rover fitted with Super Swampers, a snorkel exhaust, and a bumper winch will beat you onto the waiting list for this new Rover x Bowler road-legal rally rig. Bowler is a British rally car maker that has teamed up with Rover to create the new supercharged EXR S. Here’s the deal: 550 hp, roll cage, leather interior. In other words, perfect for Dakar or dad duty.
Aston Martin’s latest hand-built thoroughbred is called the Vanquish. Its 183 mile-per-hour 6-liter, V12 power plant enables it to vanquish the competition but this car is really all about elegance & luxury. Bold, flowing body lines; carbon fiber trims, an advanced “infotainment” system and an interior hand-stitched from seven full leather hides, leaves no question that this is truly a GT worthy of the legendary Aston Martin emblem.
