PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz SL Grand Edition

The Mercedes-Benz SL Grand Edition is a special-edition version of the company’s familiar and fairly old SL roadster. Based on the sixth-generation SL, upgraded most recently for the 2017 model year, the Grand Edition is probably the last hurrah for the dated roadster, which should be replaced by 2021. Described as an “especially exclusive” Mercedes-Benz, the Grand Edition is indeed a more bespoke version of the SL, but upgrades are limited to special color and trim on the outside and a new leather upholstery inside the cabin. The Grand Edition also rides on a sportier suspension, but it features the same engines as the standard model. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes SLC Final Edition

Just as Mercedes is adept at rolling out First Edition models, it can do the same with Final Edition models. It just so happens that the latter is more fitting for the times, particularly with the SLC-Class, Merc’s largely forgotten retractable hardtop convertible. In case you didn’t know, Mercedes is closing the book on the SLC’s three-generation life, and to commemorate the occasion, the Germans are rolling out the 2020 Mercedes SLC Final Edition. Mercedes is offering the special edition SLC on the SLC300 and AMG SLC43 trims of the roadster. There’s no specific number on how many models Mercedes plans to build, only that the special edition will be available in the U.S. in 2020.

PostHeaderIcon Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible

The ’50s were a strange decade: on the one hand, the danger of nuclear annihilation grew bigger and bigger as tensions between East and West reached new peaks and, on the other hand, automotive design also reached new peaks – peaks touched by the ultra-high fins of cars like the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, a true symbol of its time.

When you think of American cars from the ’50s, depending on who you are, you’re bound to first picture in your head one of three cars: the 1957 Chevy Bel Air, the 1955 Ford Thunderbird or the 1959 Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. The latter is most definitely the showboat, figuratively and literally, of a whole design trend; a trend that climaxed with this very car that, in a way, managed to kill off the trend altogether. The trend I’m talking about is of aeronautical inspiration, and it took off (pun intended) in the late ’40s and early ’50s thanks to concept cars like the Buick Le Sabre and a host of other GM Motorama creations.

No, those chrome-bathed fins didn’t help the cars corner better nor did they aid the back end in sticking to the ground better – they were just for style, and 1959 was the year of all-out chrome and all-out fins. Some think those cars are everything that’s wrong with American cars, others simply think they’re flamboyant while others still adore them. I guess it’s a matter of personal preference but, undoubtedly, the ’59 Eldorado continues to turn heads 60 years later.

PostHeaderIcon Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia

Introduced in 2013 as the company’s first true-blue sports car in decades, the Alfa Romeo 4C soldiered on into 2019 with almost no upgrades. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the Italian company launched the 4C Spider Italia, a limited-edition roadster with a handful of extra features. Although it doesn’t stray far from the regular model, it confirms that the 4C Spider will remain in production for the 2020 model year.

With the Coupe discontinued at the end of 2018, the Spider remains in dealerships for at least one more year, but the Italia is far from special. Finished in an exclusive paint and fitted with custom graphics and badges, it’s just a poor attempt to keep this bare-bones sports car appealing among newer products. Is it worth getting one? Let’s find out below.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition

Thirty years have passed since Mazda gave the world the MX-5 Miata, and to commemorate that occasion, the Japanese automaker introduced the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
Limited to just 3,000 units, the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition is available in both soft-top and retractable hardtop RF trims. The exclusive touches are mostly cosmetic in nature, though that’s expected considering that Mazda followed the same blueprint when it launched the 10th Anniversary Miata in 1999, the 20th Anniversary Miata in 2009, and the 25th Anniversary Miata in 2014. The limited edition MX-5 starts at $34,995. Unfortunately, the time to get one has passed; all 500 allocations of the MX-5 Anniversary Edition in the U.S. were scooped up a mere four hours after Mazda opened the order books.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is Good News, Bad News at the Same Time

If you’re a fan of performance cars, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show must be really boring to you. Packed with trucks and special-edition SUVs, you have to dig deep to find some cool sports car in there, and most of them are actually classics. There is an exception worth checking out though: the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia.

A limited-series, special edition version of the familiar roadster, the 4C Spider Italia comes with good and bad news for both Alfa Romeo and sports car enthusiasts.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia Is the Best-Looking Debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, But Is It Too Little Too Late?

First introduced way back in 2013, the 4C was the first mass-produced Alfa Romeo vehicle for the North American market in the 21st century. And what a comeback – this thing ticks all the boxes when it comes to driving nirvana. Made from carbon fiber and aluminum, the 4C is lightweight, while the exterior dimensions are compact, which combine with the mid-engine drivetrain package to make for some seriously impressive driving dynamics. We love it, but in the six years since its debut, not much has changed, and sales have taken a hit. Now, Alfa is offering a special edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show that’s leaving us wondering – is it too little too late?

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is a final attempt from Alfa to stay relevant

Alfa Romeo showed up at the Chicago Auto Show with the 4C Spider Italia Edition. It’s the same 4C Alfa’s been selling in the U.S. for almost half a decade already, but the novelty is you can now have it in this nice Misano Blue Metallic paint job if you pay $5,000 more on top of the $1,595 destination tax.

The Alfa Romeo 4C was the second car Alfa Romeo brought Stateside after selling almost 100 of its wonderful 8C sports car in both coupe and roadster guise. The 4C is a much more compact version but, in true Alfa tradition, it looks really well and it drives well too. The issue is that the Italians haven’t really been all that interested in trying to refresh the car and, now, the 4C is a pretty but overpriced car that desperately needs a replacement worth of sharing the garage with the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the Giulia Quadrifoglio.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition Is One of the Best Excuses to Celebrate At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show

As we would expect from any contemporary auto show, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show is popping at the seams with new models offered as a “celebration” of some accomplishment or milestone. However, out of all these limited production runs and special editions, we think the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition is one of the best reasons to really celebrate. This two-door sports machine is an outlier in the market, looking a lot like a greatest hits album for the MX-5 nameplate. Here’s why we’re digging it.

PostHeaderIcon The Mazda MX-5 Celebrates its 30th Birthday at Chicago Auto Show with a Limited Edition model

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has been in the automotive industry for three decades now and the automaker decided to celebrate the occasion with the launch of the 30th Anniversary Edition of the MX-5 at the Chicago Auto Show. What makes it all the more special is that the original MX-5 also made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show back in 1989! The 30th Anniversary Edition will be limited to a production of just 3,000 copies.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Carrera GT “Recommissioned” by Porsche Classic

When a car is about to die its natural death, most car owners scrap it off and replace it with a new one. However, we enthusiasts try to do our best to bring it back to life instead of just disposing of something close to our hearts. Here is one such car lover who took his dying Porsche Carrera GT to Dr. Porsche Classic for a thorough restoration.

PostHeaderIcon Did Jerry Seinfeld Really Sell a Fake 1958 Porsche 356A for $1.5 Million?

You may remember that back in early 2016 we covered Jerry Seinfeld’s announced auction of several of his classic Porsche models – all of which eventually sold for some $22-million in total. One of the cars he sold then has been proven to not be authentic and he’s now being sued for $1.5-million.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar F-TYPE Checkered Flag Limited Edition Coupe

Jaguar is rolling out the special-edition goods with the arrival of the F-TYPE Chequered Flag Limited Edition. Based on the coupé and convertible versions of the Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic trim, the Chequered Flag Limited Edition is a celebration of the Big Cat’s history and lineage of sports cars that earnestly began with the arrival of the XK 120 back in 1948. In keeping with a number of past Jaguar F-TYPE special editions, the Chequered Flag Limited Edition mostly comes with exclusive cosmetic touches inside and out. It features a black roof, a new set of exclusive wheels, and enough badges to drive home the point that this is an exclusive 380-horsepower kitty that pays homage to its heritage. The Jaguar F-TYPE Chequered Flag Edition is available in the U.S. market at a starting price of $71,900.

PostHeaderIcon VUHL 05RR

When VUHL came out with the original 05 supercar back at the Good Festival of Speed in 2013, we were actually looking forward to seeing it soon in its production form; after all, there aren’t many small supercar manufacturers to begin with. Fast forward to 2019 and VUHL is back in the news with the 05’s meaner version dubbed the 05 RR. The 2019 VUHL 05RR is the production version that comes with 400 horses, 370 pound-feet of torque, and a lightweight body that makes this little toy car zip around bends with the best of them. The 2019 VUHL 05RR is worth the wait as it aces its rivals in almost all departments.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren 600LT Spider

The McLaren 600LT Spider is one of the few drop-top sports cars with barely any compromises over the coupe. It’s just 110 pounds heavier than the fixed-head version but, besides that, it offers the same 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque from the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. The catch? It costs almost $50,000 more than the 570S Spider that McLaren used as a starting point for the LT.

After teasing us with a video just a few days ago, McLaren finally released the official images of the mighty 600LT Spider. Again, LT stands for ’Long-Tail,’ but there is no long tail on this car to speak of, it’s merely as a pale homage to the Le Mans class-winning McLaren F1 GTR from 22 years ago. What you do get, though, is a highly competent track beast with the added benefit of being able to allow the elements to take their toll on you when the roof’s down.

If you like what you’re hearing you should rush to pre-order one because McLaren said that the production would be limited with “build slots scheduled around other Sports and Super Series models.” Production is said to commence in March and will go on for a year. The only problem with the 600LT Spider is, frankly, the existence of the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider with its 710 horsepower, 568 pound-feet of torque that’s likely quicker although it also costs a lot more as well.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC Debuts At The 2019 Detroit Auto Show In A Topless Avatar

Lexus shares a special bond with the North American International Auto Show. The brand officially made its debut during the first year of the auto show in 1989. Thirty years later, the brand celebrates the third year anniversary of the LC 500 coupe by unveiling a convertible LC. The best part is that the LC Convertible is not just a concept; it seems to be the real-deal and Lexus has hinted the same.

PostHeaderIcon EV-swapped Porsche 356 Speedster is actually a great idea

Now I don’t know about you, but I really like the idea of marrying classic sports car looks from the 1950s and 1960s with modern tech and electric powertrains. There’s really nothing wrong with that, no matter what some so-called purists might say because the resulting vehicle is faster, quieter, and greener than what you started out with.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

Porsche has done wonders with the new 911, making it sportier and more attractive than ever. The interior is more advanced than ever before, includes a new infotainment system, and a steering wheel that was inspired by none other than the 918 Spyder. Even the oily bits under the hood took on a sizeable update with the Carrera S delivering 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. It’ll get to 60 mph in as fast as 3.6 seconds when properly configured. Tie all of this together, and you have one commanding, desirable package. It’s not up for delivery quite yet, but we’ve featured it as our wallpaper of the day to help hold you over until you can take delivery of your own fine example.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC Convertible Concept

The Lexus LC Convertible is a concept vehicle that the luxury firm unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. But while it’s presented as a concept, it’s actually a drop-top version of the LC coupe that Lexus introduced for the 2018 model year.

Devoid of any features that would make it a proper concept, the LC Convertible likely previews a production model. The drop-top LC has been rumored ever since the coupe arrived and would enable Lexus to offer a competitor for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet. Although the Japanese firm didn’t specifically confirm a production car, it did say that a production version “would be exhilarating in many different ways.” Let’s find out what sets it apart from the coupe.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Lexus LC Convertible Doesn’t Have a Roof and We’re Not Even Mad

The transformation of the LC coupe into a convertible seems like a no brainer. While we did hear rumors on the matter, now we have a confirmation (sort of). This is the Lexus LC Convertible Concept – a roofless concept car scheduled to debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday (14th, January). As it is based on top of the Lexus LC Coupe, the LC Convertible Concept looks gorgeous. Well, at least I think it does. As Lexus prioritized the development of the convertible version of the F branded LC, I believe we will see the production version sometime in 2020. Interestingly enough, Lexus did not confirm the production version of the LC Convertible Concept, but I guess it is likely to happen.

“A production version of this concept would be exhilarating in many different ways. You would see its dynamic lines as you approach, hear its engine when you started it up and feel everything around you once on the road. It would engage the senses in a way that is unique and exciting every time you got behind the wheel,” said Tadao Mori, Chief Designer of the LC Convertible concept.
