PostHeaderIcon Here’s a 1985 Dodge RamCharger Prospector That’ll Make You Forget Your Itch for an Old-School Land Cruiser or Bronco

A 1985 Dodge RamCharger Prospector is available at Barrett Jackson’s auction in Scottsdale, Arizona this weekend. Regarded as perhaps the best-kept secret in the world of vintage trucks and SUVs, the RamCharger Prospector’s status is expected to blow up as prices for old Broncos, Land Cruisers, and Wagoneers become unattainable. Fortunately, the RamCharger Prospector can be still had at affordable prices, including this fine 1985 model that only has 7,563 original miles under its belt. There’s no reserve price attached to this particular piece, so it’s going to be sold to the highest bidder regardless of the final price. If you can score this burgeoning collector’s item, you could be ahead of the game in the quest for 1985 RamCharger Prospectors that are still, at the very least, in good running condition.

PostHeaderIcon A 1994 Toyota Supra With 7k Miles Sold for Crazy Money

A 1994 Toyota Supra has just been sold for $121,000. Yup, you read that right. This number is kind of hurting my intelligence. $121,000 for a 1994 Toyota Supra? I mean, really?

True, the model sold through Bring a Trailer listing is nearly perfect. It is red, manual, twin-turbocharged, and it covered only 7,111 miles. But, $121,000 for a 1994 Toyota? Well, with the impending debut of the all-new Toyota Supra GR A90 in a week or so, the world obviously went berserk about the best Supra that ever was. The thing is that this particular version was really well cared for. And, it is one of the top of the line models from the age when it was produced.

PostHeaderIcon The Only Road-Legal Porsche 935 Is Up For Sale!

Porsche’s 935 race car was built to compete in the Group 5 class that was the pinnacle of GT racing in the late ’70s and very early ’80s. The
935 was the car to beat in Europe and across the Atlantic in the U.S. and even won Le Mans overall. Such accolades pushed F1 team owner Walter Wolf to want one, but not for the race track. The result was maybe the fastest road-legal car in the world at the time.

When you think about a GT racing car, you envision a car that’s based on a production model that was heavily modified, stripped of any useless equipment that only added weight, and then sent out on the track to compete against other vehicles like it. What’s unusual is to want for one of those race-prepped machines to be made street-legal again, while keeping most if not all of the racing bits on. That was the premise, largely speaking, of the insane GT1 class that lived a short life in the late ’90s but, even before that, there was one car that followed that same path: Walter Wolf’s street-going 935 K3 built by Kremer Racing of Germany.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Get a Fully Licensed, Brand New 1966-1977 Ford Bronco if You’re Willing to Pay for it

The new Ford Bronco will arrive in 2020, but those who can’t wait that long now have the opportunity to have their fill with the original Bronco courtesy of a company called Gateway Bronco. The Illinois-based outfit has been restoring the first-generation Bronco since it started operations in 2016. But thanks to a partnership with Ford, Gateway Bronco has announced plans to go beyond restoring original Broncos and will build brand new, old Broncos under license from Ford. Mind you; these aren’t Gateway’s “interpretation” of the original Broncos. These are original Broncos that Gateway will build with the blessing of Ford. They even come with a five-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty. Gateway plans to build three versions of the original Bronco, all in limited quantities. The price range of these models goes from $120,000 to $180,000.

PostHeaderIcon Car for Sale: Rare 2007 Ferarri 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato

The Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato was unveiled back in 2007 and was just limited to nine units worldwide. Compare this model to modern-day Ferraris, and you will notice how radically different this is from what the Italian manufacturer makes now. Upfront, it looks nothing but a Ferrari, but the rear is where it looks different. This is exactly what modern-day automakers must do, instead of following the Russian doll design. The 599 GTZ you see here is actually up for sale, assuming you can afford it.

PostHeaderIcon Beechmont Ford Performance Has Another Crazy Deal – this Time It Involves Nitrous and Mustang GTs

Beechmont Ford Performance, an Ohio-based dealership, is in the news again. And, for good reason. Its claim-to-fame was selling 700-horsepower Mustang GTs for a mere $40,000. This time, the showroom is selling brand new Mustang GTs with a bottle of nitrous fitted in the boot.
Can it get any crazier than this?

PostHeaderIcon John Cena’s 2017 Ford GT is Getting Passed Around Like a Dirty Diaper

The Ford GT once owned by WWE superstar John Cena is back up for sale. It’s the fourth time — maybe fifth? — that Cena’s Ford GT is on the market and the second time in the past month alone. The Liquid Blue Ford GT last hit the auction block during Monterey Car Week back on August 25. Barely a month later — seriously, it’s only September 24 — the supercar us now listed in Mecum’s auction next month.

PostHeaderIcon 8 Fastest Selling Cars on the Used Market

Chevrolet Volt

Luxury cars are appealing for those who want to showcase their lots in life. But just because there’s appeal in riding in class and elegance, that doesn’t mean the second-hand market has been good for models in this segment. There are a number of reasons why luxury cars don’t break the bank on the used-car market, and one of those reasons revolves around crossovers, SUVs, and even pickup trucks. Luxury cars, especially of the sedan persuasion, have lost their appeal because consumers these days have flocked towards more versatile vehicles, whether its’ an SUV, pickup, or in the case of the cars below, affordable sedans, hatchbacks, and hybrids.
An unexpected paradigm shift is another reason.

The idea of what a luxury car is has eroded because customers’ tastes aren’t what they used to be. Not a lot of people are as interested in the bespoke materials inside a car or how fast it is from 0 to 60 mph. What matters these days is a sprinkling of all those things in one versatile package. Combine all that with cheaper costs in the second-hand market and lower maintenance costs upon ownership, and you get the picture why second-hand luxury cars aren’t as appealing as they used to be, and why the cars below have become the fastest-selling models in the used-car market.

PostHeaderIcon Ebay Sellers Think You’re Dumb Enough to Pay $500,000+ for a Dodge Challenger Demon

Launched for the 2018 model year, the Dodge Challenger Demon is pretty much a road-legal dragster. It’s also the quickest and the most powerful Challenger built in a factory. Given these facts, as well as the limited, 3,000-unit production for the U.S. market, it’s not exactly surprising that the Challenger Demon starts from $84,995. Granted, it’s a bit steep for a platform that’s been around for ten years now, but it comes with many benchmarks. With demand higher than production rates, Demons are actually sold with a high premium on the used car market, but things just got ridiculous on eBay, where supercharged Challengers are listed for more than $100,000.

PostHeaderIcon Car for Sale: 1969 De Tomaso Mangusta

The De Tomaso Pantera may be the most famous car the once-proud Italian automaker built, but the Pantera only came to existence after the De Tomaso Mangusta, the first road-going car De Tomaso produced in mass quantities. Don’t be fooled by that description, though, because only 401 Mangustas were built before production stopped in 1971. Finding a Mangusta in 2018 is a rare sight. Finding one that’s still in good condition is even rarer. Fortunately, there is one that’s for sale on the Streetside Classic website.


Car for Sale: 1969 De Tomaso Mangusta - image 770768
“It has 8,783 actual miles on it and has only had two owners since it rolled off the production line back in the late 60’s”

This particular De Tomaso Mangusta is located in Tampa, Florida. It has 8,783 actual miles on it and has only had two owners since it rolled off the production line back in the late 60’s. As the story goes, the original owner of this Mangusta sold it less than a year after taking delivery. The second owner bought it in 1970, moved it to Florida from California, and has had it since. Sometime in 1979, the sports car reportedly went into long-term storage before getting taken out sometime in 2016 where it went through a full and complete restoration. As part of the restoration process, most of the surviving original components were kept intact. Those that were changed or replaced include the four original tires, though the original spare tire remains in the car. The car also retains its trademark gold paint finish.

Most of the interior components are also from the original car. These include the black leather bucket seats, factory floor mats, AM/FM radio, the glowing Veglia gauges and toggle switches, and the wood and leather steering wheel.

“On the engine side of things, the Mangusta’s original 302 cubic-inch Ford V-8 engine remains intact”

On the engine side of things, the Mangusta’s original 302 cubic-inch Ford V-8 engine remains intact. Its use of the 302 engine means that this particular was developed for the U.S. market with 221 horsepower on tap. For what it’s worth, the Europe version had a Ford 289 V-8 engine that produced 306 horsepower.

If you happen to be interested in this DeTomaso Mangusta, prepare to shell out $299,995. It’s a steep price to pay for a 58-year old car that isn’t a Ferrari, but there aren’t that many Mangusta’s in the world, to begin with. Your $300,000 could end up being a bargain if the prestige of the Mangusta continues to soar in the future.

PostHeaderIcon Car for Sale: 1,400HP, Tuned-Out 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo

For the confused few who actually think that Lamborghinis are slow, Underground Racing has become the go-to place to get the supercar’s power figures up to “appreciable” levels. The North Carolina-based tuner is known for turning Lambos into certified eaters of worlds,
and it just so happens that one of them is up for sale now.


Car for Sale: 1,400HP, Tuned-Out 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo
- image 770873
“There’s nothing outlandishly special about it other than its Arancio Borealis paint, the small, black graphics on the sides of the car, and the slew of aerodynamic components from RSC Tuning”

On the surface, it looks like your run-of-the-mill 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo. There’s nothing outlandishly special about it other than its Arancio Borealis paint, the small, black graphics on the sides of the car, and the slew of aerodynamic components from RSC Tuning that include an LP560 front splitter, carbon center splitter, front spoiler, side skirts, and rear diffuser.

The truth is, there’s more to this particular Gallardo than meets the eye. It’s historically relevant because this is the first Gallardo project Underground Racing ever took. You might even say that all subsequent Lambo projects the tuner worked on since owe their existence to this particular Gallardo. Over the years, we’ve even seen it make promotional appearances, including one in 2009 when it hit 241 mph at the Texas Mile event.


Car for Sale: 1,400HP, Tuned-Out 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo
- image 770874
“The Gallardo is for sale for $159,000.”

Yes, this Gallardo is capable of reaching that kind of speed. That’s largely due to a pair of 67-millimeter turbochargers that were mated to the supercar’s stock 5.0-liter V-10 engine. The result was a Gallardo that could generate 1,000 horsepower on 93-octane fuel and a staggering 1,400 horsepower on 117-octane race fuel. Needless to say, Underground Racing also added more than 30 components on the Gallardo’s engine and transmission, including a race-spec clutch and a custom exhaust system that was created using aircraft-quality materials.

The Gallardo is for sale for $159,000. It’s a little steep for a 12-year old Lamborghini Gallardo, but you are getting one with enough power in it to make today’s hypercars quake in their boots. About the only real downside to buying this is that even if it has just 5,800 miles on its odometer, a lot of those miles were used to showcase the supercar’s capabilities. I’m no genius when it comes to estimates of this sort, but wouldn’t that feel like 20,000 miles of normal car use?

PostHeaderIcon Car For Sale: George Carlin’s 1996 BMW 850Ci

If you’re ever feeling down in the dumps and need a new perspective on things, I’d like to suggest checking out the comedy of George Carlin. Granted, Carlin was never one to sugarcoat a situation, but his ability to drive straight to the bone of an issue is second to none. His sarcastic, highly intelligent dark comedy is legendary, and now, his well-preserved 8 Series can be had by the highest bidder.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


“The car is mechanically all-original and has very few blemishes, plus it says “PHUNNY” on the license plate. Nice touch.”

Recently listed on the auto bidding site Bring A Trailer, Carlin’s E31 8-Series is 1 of just 363 examples brought to North America. It features black paint on black leather upholstery, which is befitting of Carlin’s chosen style of clothing and comedy. It’s also mechanically all-original and has very few blemishes, plus it says “PHUNNY” on the license plate. Nice touch.

Behind the shark nose front end is a 5.4-liter V-12 engine, which produced 322 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque from the factory. The ’12 mates to a 5-speed automatic transmission and drives the rear wheels exclusively. It also comes with Electronic Damper Control, an aftermarket stereo in the cabin, and 18-inch Racing Dynamics wheels in the corners. The car is relatively low in the mileage department, logging just 79,000 miles on the odometer.


“Comedian George Carlin was the sole operator of the car from new until his death in 2008, though it was first purchased by his business partner,” states the Bring A Trailer post. “It was acquired by Carlin’s daughter following his passing in 2008 and she as added 11k miles since then.”

The car was recently serviced, and it also received a new headliner, an alignment, and it passed smog as well.

The auction ends Tuesday, February 20th. The current bid as of this writing (02/16/2018) is set at $25,250, although it’s expected that number will rise significantly over the weekend due to the car’s prestigious ownership.

PostHeaderIcon Car for Sale: Adam Carolla’s 1972 BMW 3.0 CLS Racer

Though he’s not on the level of Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Corolla’s car collection shouldn’t be sneezed at. The TV personality has, at various points in the past, owned a collection of desirable classics, including a 1966 Lamborghini 350GT, a collection of Datsun race cars, and a 1979 Porsche 935 that was driven by Paul Newman in the 1979 24 hours of Le Mans. Corolla also owns a 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL, a race car many consider as one of the most iconic ones that BMW has ever produced. Unfortunately, Corolla’s ownership of the 3.0 CSL is unlikely to last long. That’s because the beautiful and legendary race car is up for sale. There’s no attached price to it, but for the right offer, you have a chance to take home one of the most memorable Bimmer racers to ever smoke its wheels on a race track.

“The car itself was first purchased by German racer Heinz-Jorgen Dahmen back in 1972”

Classic BMW race cars don’t go for sale very sale very often, so when one of them goes up, it grabs our attention. As with most classic cars with the status of the 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL, Adam Corolla’s 3.0 CSL has a fascinating story to tell.

The car itself was first purchased by German racer Heinz-Jorgen Dahmen back in 1972. A prominent racer at the time, Dahmen raced the 3.0 CSL in various racing series from 1972 to 2004, a staggering 32-year run that included five wins and eight podium finishes. When he hung his racing boots for good, the car was sold to Cullen “Cuffy” Crabbe, the son of actor and former Olympic gold medalist Buster Crabbe. The father-and-son tandem started in the NBC TV series, Captain Gallant of the Foreign Legions from 1955 to 1957. The younger Crabbe owned the car for seven years, often driving it vintage races. It was also during Crabbe’s ownership that the 3.0 CSL received an updated engine and was converted to Group 2 specifications. When Crabbe had his feel of the racer, he sold it to Adam Corolla in 2011.


Car for Sale: Adam Carolla's 1972 BMW 3.0 CLS Racer - image 763638
“Seven years after taking ownership of the 3.0 CSL, Corolla is now ready to hand it over to a new owner”

Seven years after taking ownership of the 3.0 CSL, Corolla is now ready to hand it over to a new owner. Unlike the previous two owners, Corolla never raced the Bimmer, opting instead to let it sit in his garage as a showpiece item in his collection. The car’s ad, which is posted on Classic Driver, even describes the 3.0 CSL as being able to “fire up reliably and runs strong.”

For those who are unfamiliar with the 3.0 CSL, it’s hard to understate how rare the car is, especially here in the U.S. BMW produced four different iterations of the 3.0 CSL, all of which were produced in the span of five years. Of these versions, many BMW collectors consider the 3.2-liter version, the one affectionately called the Batmobile, as the most iconic of the lot.


Car for Sale: Adam Carolla's 1972 BMW 3.0 CLS Racer - image 763639
“The lack of a set price for the 3.0 CSL means that it could go for a pretty penny.”

It also happens to be the one that Adam Corolla owns. It’s hard to miss it, thanks to the massive air guides in the front and the equally enormous rear spoiler. The ad doesn’t say how many miles it has on the odometer, but considering its history, it’s been through the ringer a handful of times.
Still, it looks in tip-top shape, a testament to the kind of care and attention that was given to the car by Corolla and its past owners.

The lack of a set price for the 3.0 CSL means that it could go for a pretty penny. Current market trends suggest that if you have anything less than $250,000 to $300,000, you might as well not even bother making a run at buying this true BMW classic.

PostHeaderIcon German Dealership Already Has a Sales Listing for the New Mercedes G-Class

Can’t wait to get your hands on an all-new Mercedes-Benz G-Class? If you live in Germany, there’s a way to get the all-purpose SUV, provided that you’re willing to pay a premium for it. German car dealership Hollauto is now selling a new G500 just days after the SUV was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. How exactly did the dealer get its hands on one so quickly? It didn’t because it’s actually selling a build slot for an already commissioned example.


German Dealership Already Has a Sales Listing for the New Mercedes G-Class - image 760979
“Since the dealership appears to have a build slot for one, it’s more than willing to flip that slot for €133,600, which converts to around $164,000 based on current exchange rates.”

If you’re confused by all of this, don’t be. This is another prime example of a dealership trying to make a quick buck off of a popular model. The all-new Mercedes G-Class hasn’t even gone to production yet, but since the dealership appears to have a build slot for one, it’s more than willing to flip that slot for €133,600, which converts to around $164,000 based on current exchange rates. I understand the principles of making money in business, but this example reeks of greed. Consider the price Hollauto is asking and compare it to the expected price of the G-Class — €107,040.50 ($131,000) in Germany — and the purpose is as obvious as the day is long.

Granted, this kind of practice isn’t new in the auto industry. As long as there’s a popular model that’s on the horizon, there will be those who will try to make money if they have early access to a car. In 2017 alone, flipping of slots occurred on models like the Ford GT, Honda Civic Type R, Porsche 911 GT2 RS, and a slew of other “must-have” models.

“The practice of flipping has gotten so rampant that Aston Martin actually issued a warning to dealerships about flipping build slots for the Valkyrie supercar.”

The practice got so rampant that Aston Martin actually issued a warning to dealerships about flipping build slots for the Valkyrie supercar. If you get caught doing it, you not only lose the reservation slot outright, but you’ll also get the door permanently shut on you with regards to future special edition Aston Martin models.

In the event that you are interested in Hollauto’s offer, you are getting a G500 that’s finished in Obsidian Black, rides on a set of 20-inch AMG wheels, has a brown upholstery interior with wood trim, and comes with a host of optional extras, including the Driving Assistance Package, 360-degree camera system, ambient lighting, Burmester premium sound system, rear entertainment system and a sunroof.

PostHeaderIcon Looking For A Porsche 911 GT3? How Does A Fleet Of 18 Never-Driven Examples Sound?

We like the Porsche 911 GT3 – quite a lot, actually. It’s purposefully built, looks great, and goes like stink. However, this classified ad seeking a buyer for 18 fresh in-the-box examples looks to be a whole new level of devotion to the Stuttgart superstar.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


Looking For A Porsche 911 GT3? How Does A Fleet Of 18 Never-Driven Examples Sound? - image 756664
“The Porsches are completely identical and come draped in white paint”

Sometimes when I get takeout, I like to buy a lot – you know, like three or four meals at a time, just to have ’em chilling in my fridge, ready to go in case I get hungry later on. This is kinda like that, except with high-powered six-figure German sports cars. You know, just in case.

The ad comes from a classifieds website in the Netherlands called Marktplaats, and appears to show 18 brand-spanking-new 2015 Porsche 911 GT3s, all lined up and parked in a giant warehouse. The whole lot of ’em are up for sale, but buyers can snack on just one, or binge on all 18, if the mood strikes them.

The Porsches are completely identical and come draped in white paint. Apparently, each has never been driven, either, and each also comes with the optional Club Sport Package.

For reference, the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 makes 476 horsepower thanks to a rear-mounted all-atmosphere flat-six engine, with power routed to the rear axle by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The equipped Club Sport Package also makes them track-ready, throwing in goodies like an external fuel tank, six-point harnesses, black bucket seats, and a roll cage. It also appears as though they come with steel brakes, rather than Porsche’s carbon ceramic units.

“Why would anyone buy a fleet of 18 GT3's to simply park 'em? One Twitter user suggests they were originally intended for use on a race track that was never actually built, which makes sense”

So then, what’s the story here? Why would anyone buy a fleet of 18 GT3’s to simply park ’em? One Twitter user suggests they were originally intended for use on a race track that was never actually built, which makes sense.

For us, though, this feels like the Costco of top-shelf sports cars. We just wish there were more free samples to go with it.

Unfortunately, there’s no Costco-esque pricing here, as each unit is going for 134,500 euros (around $162,000), while all 18 are going for a cool 2.4 million euros (roughly $2.9 million). And that’s kinda pricey, as the same models would have gone for about $130,000 a pop here in the states.

But we wanna know – what would you do with 18 brand-new Porsche 911 GT3s? Let us know in the comments section below!

PostHeaderIcon Would You Pay $365,000 For A 6.3-Liter V-12 Out Of A LaFerrari?

As we all know by now, the Ferrari LaFerrari is an incredible beast of a machine, capable of doling out illegal levels of speed in the blink of an eye thanks to its high-tech powertrain. Now, someone is selling the beating heart of a LaFerrari on eBay.

The Full Story


Would You Pay $365,000 For A 6.3-Liter V-12 Out Of A LaFerrari? - image 755861

Ditch that crummy old LS V-8, because we just found something way better. Say hello to a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter 12-cylinder from a LaFerrari, capable of propelling you all the way to nirvana on an Italian wave of howling fury. To sweeten the deal, it’s got just 20 miles on it, too. If you’re interested, the “Buy It Now” price is pegged at an eye-watering $385,000, so better go flip the couch cushions for a ’lil extra spare change.

Add gasoline, and this lump will spit out 789 horsepower at a head-spinning 9,000 rpm, as well as 520 pound-feet of torque at 6,750 rpm. Add in Ferrari’s Formula 1-derived KERS hybrid system, plus an electric motor, and output jumps to 949 horses and 664 pound-feet of torque, all of which helps the LaFerrari hit 60 mph in 2.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph.

“We're guessing that whoever is responsible for the auction will be found, sued, banned from ever purchasing any Ferrari product for the rest of time, and if possible, crushed to death under a mountain of Ferrari-branded teddy bears.”

Unfortunately, the above-featured auction looks as though it only includes the internal combustion bits and none of the hybrid components. What’s more, anyone looking to drop this thing under their hood is gonna need to know their way around a torch, as it’s most definitely not a plug-and-play kinda application – the transmission in particular is a big question mark when it comes to actually making the V-12 work in another car.

No word on where the engine came from, but odds are Ferrari is gonna be seriously pissed off once it finds out about this. Hell, if the brand won’t hesitate to whip out the lawyers over a customized urn used to fulfill the wishes of a boy who died of cancer, we can only imagine Maranello’s backlash when they find an engine out of one of their beloved hypercars up for sale to the highest bidder. We’re guessing that whoever is responsible will be found, sued, banned from ever purchasing any Ferrari product for the rest of time, and if possible, crushed to death under a mountain of Ferrari-branded teddy bears.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Swapped A V-10 Into A 2005 Jeep Wrangler!

The venerable Jeep Wrangler is no stranger to engine swaps. Folks have been shoving bigger engines behind its grille ever since the U.S. Military defeated the Axis powers in 1945. The small-block Chevrolet V-8 is the standard go-to engine, but small block Fords and even other Mopar engines are a common sight. But, it’s a certifiable rarity to see a Wrangler with the 8.3-liter V-10 from the Viper and 2004 – 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 SRT10.

Nevertheless, that’s exactly what’s for sale right now on eBay.

The project started with a low-mileage 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. That generation is known as the TJ, but since it’s a long-wheelbase Unlimited version, it’s called the LJ. So, this LJ with 22,500 miles had its 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder, four-speed automatic transmission, and two-speed transfer case removed and replaced with, well, “beefier” components. The transmission is now a 48RE automatic from a Ram heavy-duty and the T-case is a modified RockTrac unit from a Wrangler Rubicon. The front axle is a good ole Ford nine-inch, while the rear axle is a stout Dana 60. Both have 35-spline axle shafts.

The suspension is a long-arm kit from Superlift that accompanies by a one-inch body lift that helps with clearance of the big V-10 under the hood. A set of 20-inch six-spoke, Pro Comp wheels and 35-inch Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ all-terrain tires hide Viper-sized front brakes and upgraded rear disc brakes.

“The 8.3-liter V-10 is in stock condition and makes roughly 500 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque”

Inside the Jeep, the stock seats were replaced with two-tone suede sport seats and the plastic center console swapped for a lockable, metal unit. Naturally, the stock radio is swapped for an aftermarket head unit. In back, the cargo area features a large steel drawl that is also lockable. A premium soft top is augmented by a full-length roof rack that’s removable. The steel bumpers are from Warn, as are the rock sliders below the doors. Finally, LED taillights finish off the exterior upgrades.

Of course, the big news is under the hood. The 8.3-liter V-10 is in stock condition and makes roughly 500 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque. That was enough to accelerate the 5,130-pound regular cab Dodge Ram SRT 10 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. With a lower curb weight, the LJ should finish the run in less time – perhaps around 4.5 seconds.

“The eBay classified listing has this 2005 Jeep Wrangler LJ prices at $52,000 and is located in Chicago”

While this SRT10 Wrangler might outrun ever LJ, it won’t pass every gas station. The EPA estimated the Ram SRT10 to get 9.0 mpg in the city and 15 mpg on the highway.

The eBay classified listing has this 2005 Jeep Wrangler LJ prices at $52,000 and is located in Chicago. That’s a lot of scratch for a 13-year-old Jeep, but it’s not every day when such a clean V-10-powered Wrangler comes up for sale. The 8.3-liter V-10 might not be the most economical or power-dense engine swap ever seen in a Wrangler, but it’s certainly outside conventionality. Let’s just say this Jeep would attract quite a crowd at the local Cars & Coffee or Jeep meet. For some, that might be worth the buy-in price.

PostHeaderIcon Custom-Built Ferrari Testarossa Convertible Has A History With The King of Pop

The Ferrari Testarossa is regarded as one of the most iconic cars of the 1980’s. But as popular as the two-door Berlinetta was, Ferrari actually made just one convertible version. That model was specially created as a gift by Ferrari for the late Gianni Agnelli, the head of Fiat at the time. There are a handful of other drop-top Testarossas in existence today, but all of them are custom-built, including this black beauty that was built specifically for Michael Jackson’s now iconic 1987 Pepsi commercial.

“The provenance of this creation is unlike any other custom Testarossa Convertible”

If you’re going to own a custom-built Ferrari Testarossa Convertible, I can’t think of another one that you should own more than this particular example. The provenance of this creation is unlike any other custom Testarossa Convertible. Jackson may not have owned it at any point in his life, but he did use it in the famous four-part Pepsi commercial that saw MJ try to escape a horde of screaming fans. The Testarossa Convertible doesn’t get a lot of screen time, but it did make an impression, especially when Jackson uses it to escape the mass hysteria that was chasing him.

Outside of its appearance in the Pepsi ads, the black Testarossa Convertible also has a unique history of its own. According to its lineage, it was built by a custom tuning company in California at a cost of $40,000. Remember, this was in the 1980’s, a time when $40,000 was almost half of what an actual Testarossa cost — it was priced from $94,000 — when it was introduced around the same time.

“So the car itself wasn’t cheap to build, but if you have $799,900 lying around today, you can buy it and make it a part of your personal collection”

So the car itself wasn’t cheap to build, but if you have $799,900 lying around today, you can buy it and make it a part of your personal collection. For that amount, you get one of the most unique custom-built Ferrari Testarossa convertible units in history. It does have 17,000 miles on its odometer so it’s been used quite heavily in the course of its 31-year life. Still, when’s the next time you’ll get to see a Testarossa convertible that has Michael Jackson’s provenance attached to it.

The answer? Never. This is the only one that has it.
