Mitsuoka Orochi "7-Eleven Evangelion", 2014. A special one-off used to promote the Japanese convenience chain stores that sold for ¥16 million ($140,000). The car was based on the popular anime “Neon Genesis Evangelion”. The vivid colour scheme is reminiscent of Evangelion Unit 01, a “mecha” in the anime series.

Reveal: 911 Classic Club Coupe for Porsche Club of America
“No. 001/001” – the badge on the dashboard sums up the rarity of this Porsche model. Guided by the principles of the newly launched Porsche Sonderwunsch program, the experts at Porsche Classic created a car that is absolutely unique. In just two and a half years, a used 1998 911 Carrera (Type 996) was transformed into the Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe, spelled the American way without an accent, because the car was made for the Porsche Club of America (PCA), the sport car brand’s oldest and largest club.
The vehicle’s special features include its Sport Grey Metallic paintwork, double-dome roof, Fuchs rims and fixed rear spoiler in the ducktail style of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 from 1972. Many of the exterior and interior details are customized with PCA’s signature Club Blue. The center sections of the sports seats, like the door panels, are made of intricate woven leather in a Pepita houndstooth pattern. Technically – and to some extent visually – the vehicle has also been converted to a second-generation 911 GT3 including the 3.6-litre engine from that model generating 280 kW / 381 PS. The chassis and brakes also come from the GT3 of that generation.
The idea for this unique factory car arose during a meeting between representatives of the Porsche Club of America and Alexander Fabig, now Head of Individualization and Classic at Porsche, and designer Grant Larson of Style Porsche. To keep it secret, the vehicle was known internally as “Project Grey,” a nickname reminiscent of “Project Gold,” the 911 Turbo (Type 993) with an air-cooled engine that Porsche Classic built in 2018 from original parts. However, the main source of inspiration for the 911 Classic Club Coupe was the 911 Sport Classic (Type 997) presented in 2009. With Sport Classic Grey paintwork, a double-dome roof, ducktail and exclusive interior details, this limited series quickly gained cult status and has long been a sought-after collector’s item.
“The Type 996 is unjustly overshadowed by the other 911 ranges. That’s why we were happy to choose it as the basis for demonstrating all the things we can do with Porsche Classic and the recently expanded Sonderwunsch program of Porsche AG,” says Alexander Fabig, Head of Individualization and Classic. “In 2009, the 911 Sport Classic, a limited series of 250, had already generated worldwide interest. However, this special model was not sold in the US. With this one-off, we’ve now managed to bring a similarly exciting vehicle concept to the U.S. as well.”
“We wanted to work together to create something unique that would generate enthusiasm,” adds Tom Gorsuch, President of the Porsche Club of America (PCA). “The fact that the finished Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe looks so sleek and natural is what’s really incredible about this challenging project.”

Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000 (1995)
The car was built after an oil tycoon from the United Arab Emirates wanted to create the world’s fastest street-legal car. He hired Lotec, a German company, to build the car. After working together with Mercedes-Benz for five years, the C1000 was created.It comes packing a Mercedes-Benz-sourced twin-turbo 5.6-liter V8 engine and a Hewland 5-speed manual transmission. Push this engine to the limit and it will rocket from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, and will keep you planted until it hits its top speed of 268 mph.

“WILL.I.AMG” (Aka the Flip) by West Coast Customs
Called the Flip, it’s an interesting mixture of SLS Gullwing, Maybach and G-Wagen, and grafts the face of the latter on the donor car’s front end. Smoked out rear lights and suicide doors also feature on the one-off project.
Activities around the car should support will.i.am’s i.am/Angel Foundation, which works on helping the underprivileged get into STEM.

A black and white MS Paint drawing of Arika and Wynn against a blank white background.
Arika is a girl with dark red eyes and curly hair that poofs at the top. She is wearing a hoodie, the hood of which has slipped off her head, revealing the side of her undercut. She has a phone in one hand and is leaning backward in a casual manner against an invisible piece of furniture. Her expression is somewhat disinterested or impassive.
Wynn is a girl with lime green eyes and tight curly hair cut close to her head. She has a thick scar going down the middle of her forehead, and is wearing a plain long-sleeved shirt and plain sweatpants. She is holding a plate and a cloth in each hand. Her expression is annoyed and she is standing in the background, away from Arika.
Arika is saying “What if we killed and ate god.”
Wynn is saying “What if we had a normal Tuesday.”

Rolls-Royce Phantom III Vutotal Cabriolet, 1947, by Labourdette. A one-off commissioned from the French coachbuilder by Louis Ritter. The bodywork features brass inserts leaded into the body to accentuate the fenders, Labourdette took advantage of a new Vutotal patent that held the windshield to the firewall using very large bolts, eliminating the need for a frame

First Look: The One-off Ferrari BR20
The Ferrari BR20, the latest addition to the Prancing Horse’s One-Off series, was unveiled today and joins the most exclusive group in Maranello’s range: unique, absolutely bespoke cars crafted to the specifications of a client and designed as a clear expression of their own unique requirements.
The BR20 is a two-seater V12 coupé developed on the GTC4Lusso platform, which in terms of its philosophy and styling approach, cleverly references the magnificent Ferrari coupés of the 1950s and 60s, without the slightest hint of nostalgia. Instead, it pulls off the challenging feat of marrying timeless elegance with muscular sportiness, effortlessly incorporating styling themes typical of some of the most iconic 12-cylinders in Ferrari history, including the 410 SA and 500 Superfast.
The GTC4Lusso’s two rear seats have been removed to add extra dynamism to the BR20’s ultra-sleek fastback line. The new car is three inches longer than the original, thanks to a specific rear overhang treatment designed to create a silhouette that beautifully emphasizes its proportions. One of the cornerstones of the design process for this one-off was the radical modification made to the cabin volume. This in turn gave the design team, led by Flavio Manzoni, the freedom to conceive the innovative proportions that ultimately produced a powerful yet stylistically coherent exterior design theme.
The new cabin design solution creates the impression of a pair of arches running lengthwise from A-pillar to rear spoiler. The rear volume of the arch has been hollowed out to create an aerodynamic channel with the air outlet concealed by the black rear fascia under the spoiler. This modern take on Ferrari’s “flying buttress” theme firmly connects the car to signature Prancing Horse styling cues not just from Ferrari’s GT tradition, but also sports cars such as the 599 GTB Fiorano. To visually lighten the cabin, the black paint of the roof visually connects the windscreen to the rear screen, which stands above the surface of the rear tailgate as if to channel the air flow.
A muscular rear bumper melds beautifully with the aggressive look of the rest of the car: twin taillights create a visual dialogue with the tailpipes, which are lower and set into a prominent aerodynamic diffuser with active flaps on the underbody. Even the BR20’s twin round exhaust tips were designed especially for this bespoke model.
The BR20’s many carbon-fiber details highlight the edgy dynamic characteristics and powerful performance of this extraordinary four-wheel drive car. High, sinuous sills add an extra hint of dynamism to the lower section of the flanks as well as emphasizing the front air vents on the wheel arches. The wide front grille sports an upper carbon-fiber element, a note of stylistic consistency with other recent Ferrari one-offs, while unusual chrome side inserts help underline the car’s dynamic front stance.
The BR20’s unique identity is further underscored by the front grille’s striking new horizontal slats that lend a powerful sense of three-dimensionality. A virtually endless list of elements was designed specifically for the BR20, not least its modified headlights. They are lower in height compared to those of the GTC4Lusso with slimmer DRLs, which makes the bonnet seem even longer and sleeker. The 20” tone-on-tone diamond-finish wheels were also created especially for this unique car.
The BR20’s interior is no less impressive, trimmed in two shades of brown leather and carbon-fiber, an exquisite combination developed according to the client’s indications. The seats are trimmed in dark brown Heritage Testa di Moro leather and sport an exclusive pattern at the front as well as silver cross-stitching. The cabin volume runs uninterrupted from the windscreen to the luggage compartment at the rear, creating a sense of unique lightness and airiness for occupants. Oak trim with carbon-fiber inserts adorns the rear bench and luggage deck, which conceals a deeper loading area when folded flat, as well as the door handles.
Designed for a longstanding client who was deeply involved in every step of its creation, the Ferrari BR20 represents a true interpretation of the traditional coachbuilder’s art, successfully transforming an existing model in a masterful and unique way taking inspiration from and paying homage to the company’s core values of innovation and passion.

Porsche 356 limousine. 
It began its existence as a 1953 Porsche 356, a car whose underbody was shredded by rust. The car body was extended, two rear doors and two generously sized seats were installed. The interior work was carried out by several companies, to a really high level, with attention to detail. A separation screen was even installed between the front and rear seats of the car, as well as a manual top so that passengers in the rear can enjoy the fresh air. One nice touch: there was a built-in ambient temperature clock, telling passengers both the outside and inside temperatures. The rear of the car was identical to that of the Porsche 356, because it was the original car. However, instead of the 356 boxer engine, the mechanics belonged to a Porsche 912. It was a 1.6-litre four-cylinder boxer engine with 90 hp. Power needed to properly move the limousine, whose weight was significantly higher than that of the original light sports car.

I’ve seen some weird and rare Mustangs, but never one with a rotary engine, at least until I found this. Ford built just one Wankel-powered prototype, but it never made it to production.
