Porsche 911 Sally Special
Porsche and Pixar Animation Studios have created a real-life interpretation of Sally Carrera, the animated 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera from the Pixar movie "Cars," and they plan to auction it off for charity.
The project was first announced in March and just the one example, known as the Porsche 911 Sally Special, has been built. It will be sold on Aug. 20 during an RM Sotheby’s auction coinciding with 2022 Monterey Car Week, together with a matching watch. All proceeds will benefit Girls Inc. and USA for UNHCR, the latter providing aid for children and their families affected by the conflict in the Ukraine.
A collaboration between Pixar, Porsche's own design studio, and the automaker's Exclusive Manufaktur personalization program, the project started out as a way to commemorate this year's 20th anniversary of the 2002 911 Carrera. Sally, who serves as the main booster for the quaint town of Radiator Springs in Cars, is probably the most famous 2002 911 around, after all.

1998 McLaren F1 (Chassis 059 of 064)
24 years after its introduction, the F1 remains an icon thanks to innovative design features like a central driving position, carbon-fiber bodywork (a novelty at the time), and a gold-lined engine bay. It's also wonderfully analog, sporting a high-revving 6.1-liter BMW V-12 coupled to a 6-speed manual transaxle.

1964.5 Ford Mustang ‘Caged’
The convertible is powered by the same Coyote 5.0-liter V-8 as the current factory Mustang GT. It has the same 10-speed automatic transmission normally bolted to this engine from the factory as well, but Ringbrothers added custom headers and a Flowmaster exhaust system.
New bodywork, designed in CAD, is widened and lengthened by 1.0 inch in each direction. The grille was set back by 2.0 inches, and the trim was treated with a silver-gray finish called Cerakote Titanium C-105P. Rather than the stock 14- or 15-inch wheels, Caged gets 18-inch wheels wrapped in Continental tires. Ringbrothers also added an independent rear suspension, Penske Racing coil-overs, and Baer brakes to improve the dynamics.
Ringbrothers says it put more than 4,200 hours into Caged and touched nearly every part to create the modern look with a stock-like appearance that the client wanted. The only factory Mustang parts are the wheel center caps, and many parts were created with a 3D printer.

1980 BMW M1 
The M1 was born out of a partnership struck by BMW and Lamborghini to build a race car during the 1970s. The resulting road car featured a glorious wedge design by the legendary Giorgetto Giugiaro and a mid-mounted 3.5-liter DOHC straight-six that could pump out 274 hp. 
Unfortunately, production difficulties and some bad luck—Lamborghini had to drop out because of financial difficulties—meant the M1 cost a relative fortune for the era ($115,000, which was twice as mutch as the Ferrari 308) and sold poorly because of that. 
In 1981, three years after it launched, the German marque pulled the plug on the vehicle, with only around 400 street-legal examples having rolled off the line.

Renault 5 Diamant by Pierre Gonalons,
The Renault 5 launched in 1972, an ultra-compact hatchback that evolved the style of the popular Renault 4 with a cleaner, crisper aesthetic. Designed by Michel Boué, ‘Le Cinq’ was hugely popular, quickly becoming France’s best-selling car.
Over two generations and 24 years, some 5.5 million cars were sold, ensuring it has a place as an enduring piece of classic mass-market design.
