PostHeaderIcon The Lambo Huracan Performante Comes in All Sorts of Awesome Colors

If you love high-performance cars and racing (how can you not?), you’re probably dreaming about lapping the Nurburgring track in the incredible Lamborghini Huracan Performante right now. However, unless you have a fat wallet and have already placed an order, you’ll never have the chance to do that. Let’s face it, the Performante is awfully expensive for the average Joe and it’s probably sold out anyway. Fortunately, you can still design the Performante of your dreams in the online configurator and its absolutely free.

The configurator is pretty straight forward and doesn’t include too many options beyond the usual exterior and performance upgrades, but the number of exterior colors available is impressive. There are two solid colors and five metallic hues, mostly white, black, and gray. But go with the Pearl Effect range and you can get the stunning Giallo Inti, Arancio Borealis, and Verde Mantis. Beyond that, there’s a rage of custom Ad Personam finishes, including matte, solid, metallic, and pearl. Interesting choices include Giallo Horus, Verde Scandal, Viola Ophelia, Oro Elios, Blu Cepheus, and Viola SE 30th. The latter is based on the color that Lambo launched for the Diablo SE30 Jota back in the 1990s.

Naturally, all these colors are paired to the green-white-red Italian “tricolore” above the side skirts and the dark-colored “forged composite” elements such as the side skirts, diffuser, and front splitter.

Next up, you need to pick the color for the carbon-ceramic brakes, and you can choose between six caliper finishes. There’s black, green, orange, red, silver, and yellow, each providing interesting contrasts with several body colors. Since I “painted” my Performante in Verde Mantis, I went with red calipers, since red and green are complementary colors.

As soon as you finish up the calipers, the configurator moves on to the rims. All wheels measure 20 inches, but there are three design with various finishes. The double-five-spoke rims are called Mimas and can be had in either silver, gloss black or matte titanium. The multi-spoke Narvi wheels are available in either high-sheen black or bronze, while the five-spoke, forged Loge wheels are black and come with either black or red center locking nut. The latter seems to go well with the red calipers on my build.

The configurator then moves onto technology, where you can choose whether you want a sensor or sensor plus camera for park assistance. You can also select the Style Package, which adds darker exhaust pipes among other features.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Now Configure The Porsche 911 GT3 Of Your Dreams

Priced from $143,600 before options and delivery, the Porsche 911 GT3 isn’t exactly an affordable sports car. But, even though most of us can’t afford one, it doesn’t mean we can’t dream about taking a GT3 home some day. And the configurator for the new 911 GT3 is here to encourage you to do just that by designing the sports car of your dreams.

Although not as customizable as other high-profile supercars, the new 911 GT3 comes with plenty of options inside and out. The exterior can now be ordered in several colors, including the Lava Orange that Porsche introduced on the GT3 RS and Miami Blue, a light shade of blue with a hint of turquoise. These colors, alongside the familiar Carmine Red and Chalk, are the most expensive, being priced from $4,220. The metallic range, which includes seven options, including Graphite Blue and Sapphire blue, costs $720. If you’re looking to save some cash, you can go with the four, no-cost standard colors – black, white, Guards Red, and Racing Yellow.

Moving over to wheels, the 911 GT3 is restricted to a set of 20-inch, double-twin-spoke rims. However, they can be finished in either satin aluminum, satin platinum, satin black, and satin black with a Guards Red outer lip. These options cost $1,220, while the red lip adds another $700.

More customization is possible via Porsche Exclusive, which offers a range of exterior options such as painted logos and lettering, black headlamps with PDLS, body-colored side skirts, gloss black door handles and lower mirror caps, carbon-fiber upper mirror caps, and aluminum look fuel cap. The black headlamps are the most expensive at $2,900, while the carbon mirrors fetch $1,420.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Now Configure The Pagani Huayra Roadster Of Your Dreams

As expected, the Pagani Huayra Roadster made a heck of an impression at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It came with a revised design that featured, among other things, a new fascia, two removable roof panels, and nacelles behind each seat. It also featured a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine that pumps out 752 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. Most of all, even with the Roadster configuration, it still managed to shed off 176 pounds compared to the coupe, thanks in large part to the abundance of carbon fiber and titanium used in the car. Knowing all of this makes the Huayra Roadster a must-have supercar. And no more is that true than with Pagani’s claim that all 100 units of the supercar are already spoken for, leaving the rest of us peasants with nothing more than an online configurator to turn our dreams of owning one into (virtual) reality.

On the contrary, the online configurator is actually a very good thing, because not a lot of us have $2.4 million to spend on the car. Luckily the alternative is rather fun, especially since it costs about as much as the oxygen that you’re inhaling right now.

Like most online configurators, the one for the Huayra Roadster is easy to navigate. You can pick from as many as 20 different color schemes, each having its own appeal. There’s also a choice of four different wheels and three interior trims, all of which you can mix and match to create the Huayra Roadster of your dreams.

Apparently, Pagani even keeps track of those who play with the online configurator, ranking the combinations that were used depending on popularity. At the moment, everybody seems to be on the hook for the Blu Francia-colored Huayra Roadster, which occupies the top four spots in the leaderboard of sorts. That’s hardly a surprising turn of events because it’s the same color Pagani used on the press shots of the supercar. The top combination not only makes use of the Blue Francia paint, but it also comes with Transparent Black Mamba gloss exterior, Black alloy wheels, and a Black interior trim.

Are you in favor of this combination for the Huayra Roadster, or are you digging the convertible supercar in another garb? Go to the online configurator and find out.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Build your Dream McLaren 720S Now

The brand-new McLaren 720S, which was just unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, has now received its very own configurator on the company’s website. Yup, it’s time to create your dream supercar!

The configuration begins by selecting the trim. The 720S is available in three versions, with the Luxury and Performance trims receiving additional equipment. As soon as you pick the model, the configurator takes you to the exterior color section. And it really becomes interesting, as the 720S is available in no fewer than 34 colors.

Only five are standard, no-cost paints, including white, blue, silver, McLaren Orange, and Storm Grey. There are seven more hues in the “Special” category, including Aurora Blue, Memphis Red, and Quartz, and eight in the “Elite” class. This one includes a few spectacular choices like Volcaco Yellow, Solis, Azores, and Bourbon. Finally, there’s the “MSO Defined” category with 14 choices, including Papaya Spark, Burton Blue, Polaris BlueLantana Purple, Fistral Blue, and Mauvine Blue.

Next up, you have to pick a set of wheels. Choices include five-twin-spoke sport cast, five-twin-spoke lightweight, and ten-spoke super-lightweight. The base rims are available in either silver or stealth finishes, while the lightweights come in either platinum, titanium liquid metal, or satin diamond cut. The ten-spoke wheels are offered in similar finishes. For calipers, you can pick between eight colors with silver McLaren logo. Pirelli P Zero is the standard choice for tires, but track-ready Corsa rubber is optional.

Other exterior options include a host of carbon-fiber upgrades. You can have several body components in this lightweight material, including the side mirrors, headlamps housings, splitter, front bonnet, engine hood, and diffuser. The same goes for the interior, where you can add carbon-fiber seats and components all around. The only drawback is that the trim is either black or black and Scoria Grey, but you can add a dash of color by selecting orange seat belts. However, MSO will be happy to “paint” the cockpit in any color you want for an extra fee.

When it comes to entertainment, you can pick between the standard four-speaker audio system or the optional, 12-speaker, Bowers & Wilkins unit. The McLaren Telemetry is also available with laptime function and three cameras. There’s a lot to add to the car when it comes to safety too. Options include 360-degree park assist, front & rear parking sensors, rear-view camera, a volumetric alarm upgrade, and a vehicle tracking system. Finally, there’s all sorts of practical things like a car cover, floor mats, fire extinguisher, an ashtray, and a lithium-ion battery charger.

Unfortunately, there’s no pricing for each of these items, so you’ll have to contact a dealer to get a sticker. But I guess it doesn’t matter much when you’re like me, and can’t afford one. Anyway, my dream 720S is finished in Lantana Purple, sports ten-spoke wheels in satin diamond cut and yellow brake calipers, and every carbon-fiber option but the front bonnet. Post your choice and design in the comments section below .

PostHeaderIcon How Would You Configure Your Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio?

The original Alfa Romeo Giulia was a boxy little car that was on the market from 1962 to 1978. It took 37 years, and a lot of rumors, but in 2015 Alfa Romeo revived the Giulia name and used it for the first model in its strategic plan to save the Alfa Romeo brand. And the Giulia is a pretty big deal, as it’s not only the revival of an iconic car, but is also the first rear-wheel drive model from the Italian brand since the Milano met its demise back in 1992. As a competitor to the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class, a standard model just wasn’t enough, so Alfa created the high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio to compete with the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63, among others. Now, Alfa Romeo has brought the Giulia Quadrifoglio to its online configurator so you can make your own custom sedan to drool over until you’re ready to pony up the dough it takes to park one in your driveway.

But, before we get too far into things, don’t expect to see an elaborate amount of options. In fact, there aren’t that many options to choose from at all. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the Giulia Quadrifoglio already comes equipped pretty damn well in standard form, but if you’re like me, you want the absolute best you can get out of a new car. And, that’s exactly how I configured my Giulia Quadrifoglio.

I was initially shooting for a price that topped $100,000, but the options just aren’t there. I did, however, manage to get a sticker price of $87,670 after everything’s said and done, so let’s take a look at a good look at the options I chose.


PostHeaderIcon You can Configure Your Own Rezvani Beast

In recent years, the market has been flooded by superlight sports cars in the vein of the Caterham Seven. Ariel, Noble, and KTM are only a few of the companies that have joined this niche, launching powerful competitors for the iconic Seven. But these aren’t as new as the Rezvani Beast, a sports car built by an American-Iranian manufacturer established in 2014. Based on the Ariel Atom underneath, the Beast arrived in various configurations in 2015 and quickly made a name for itself as one of the most aggressive, no-nonsense sports cars on the market. Come 2016 and Rezvani is finally ready to take orders for the Beast, which can be customized via an online configurator.

The interesting thing about it is that while most sports cars don’t have an actual configurator — the Seven, for instance, can’t be built online — Rezvani launched quite the comprehensive website for the Beast. The first step enables you to see the sports car in one of six available paints and one of three wheel colors. Next up, you get to pick between the six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, standard or adjustable suspension, and from three different braking systems.

There are also numerous Interior options for such a simple sports car, including cloth or leather upholstery, three colors, and customizing possibilities for the shift knob, stitching, seats, steering wheel, and floor mats. Finally, you can select a premium sound system and accessories such as a car cover and a battery charger. The next step is to reserve the car and place the order, in which case you can choose to make a deposit. It’s pretty neat assuming you have at least $210,000 to spare. If you don’t, it’s still a lot of fun to play with the online app. Here’s how we configured our Beast.

PostHeaderIcon What Does Our Dream Ford GT Look Like?

In case you were unaware, Ford’s 600-horsepower supercar is available for digital dress up right here, giving would-be owners and Blue Oval fanboys a crack at crafting the perfect look for the mid-engine all-‘Merican hero. Of course, perfection is a fickle thing, so I spent my morning coming up with four unique combinations that’ll appeal to a broad range of tastes and likes. I even gave the combinations their own names. Say hello to the Historic, the Stealth Bomber, the Attention Grabber, and the Daytona.

Picking a personal favorite from the bunch isn’t easy, but if it were my $400,000, I’d probably go with the Daytona (I kinda have a thing for blue cars). But that’s just me – we wanna know which configuration you’d take. Did we nail it, or miss the mark here? Tell us in the comments, and don’t to forget to screenshot your own combo and post it for the world to see!

PostHeaderIcon You Can Now Configure Your Own Aston Martin GT8 Online

Just last April we learned that Aston Martin was planning a race-focused version of the V8 Vantage, and just a few days after that we saw the prototype tearing up the Nürburgring. Aston Martin wasted little time and debuted the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 – a car that follows in the footsteps of the GT12 – for the whole world to see just days later. Of course, the GT8 is a limited-edition model and will only be produced in 150 examples, but that doesn’t mean you can’t design your own right now.

Aston Martin has finally opened the floodgates to its Vantage GT8 online configurator. It allows you to customize the exterior finish, accenting, add or remove an aerodynamics package, choose from several halo paint jobs, and choose between a number of different wheels, among other things. With the way limited-edition models get snatched up these days, chances are all 150 models could already be spoken for, but at least you can still get a cool desktop background of a GT8 designed with your own personal touches, right?

Don’t forget that the GT8 isn’t all for the track. The car is built with all the track-related goodies one could ask for, but it also retains the car’s best comforts, including the air conditioning, Ami III infotainment system, and even the air conditioning. It’s not likely you’ll ever get to drive your own GT8, but in case you’re thinking about trying to get your hands on one, it comes with a 446-horsepower V-8 under the hood with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic strapped to the back of it.

With that said, I took the time to design my own GT8, so keep on reading to see what learn more about how I configured mine.

PostHeaderIcon Fiat 124 Spider Configurator Goes Live on Fiat's Consumer Websites

Just a few days ago, FCA dropped the pricing layout for the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider, which were similar to that of the Mazda MX-5. Now, it looks like Fiat has taken things a step farther and finally added the 124 Spider to its online configurator, next to different variations of the 2015 and 2016 Fiat 500. As of the time of this writing, the 124 Spider is the only 2017 model that can configured online.

Loading up the configurator gives us the option to choose between three different styles: Classica, Lusso, and Elaborazione Abarth. The starting price is set at $24,995, $27,495, and $28,195, respectively. Once you choose your trim, your next option is to choose your powertrain. At this time, there is just one – the 1.4-liter four-cylinder that delivers 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Moving over to the colors and interiors department, each trim level comes with its own set of colors to choose from.

For the interior, the Classica is offered with only the standard cloth seats. The Lusso trim gets leather-trimmed seats with the option of black or brown colorations. The Abarth, however, comes standard with black leather/microfiber sport seats, but can be optioned with two-tone leather seats for no cost. Upgrading to the Alcantara Leather Recaro seats adds $1,195 to the Abarth’s $28,195 ticket price.

As far as packages go, the Lusso is offered with a technology package that will set you back $1,295. The Lusso can be had with the Premium Collection that costs $3,795 and a Safety and Comfort Collection that goes for $1,495. The Abarth version is offered with the Luxury Collection for $3,995 and the Safety and Comfort Collection for $1,495. The only other options available for any trim level comes in the form of Brembo four-wheel performance brakes, and an AISIN six-speed automatic transmission, which are only available on the Abarth for an extra $1,495 and $1,350, respectively.

PostHeaderIcon Ford GT Configurator Launched

Unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in prototype form, the second-generation Ford GT is about to go on sale for the 2017 model year. The Blue Oval has just made another step toward launching its first supercar in more than a decade by firing up the GT’s online configurator. So, if you already placed a preorder or have the rumored $400,000 required to take one home, you can now browse between a number of options and customize Ford’s latest supercar.

The configurator still is still missing some of the features that will be available with the new GT, but it enables you to browse through the exterior colors, racing stripe packages, wheel options, and upholstery alternatives. What’s more, the online tool reveals that the 2017 Ford GT will receive not one, but two special-edition models. Ford doesn’t provide any details whatsoever, but given that the company is celebrating 100 years since it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time, we expect at least one of them to have something to do with the iconic race. Most likely it will be a special livery, but we won’t know for sure until Ford spills the beans.

As a brief reminder, the new GT is powered by a 3.5-liter, EcoBoost V-6 mounted behind the seats. The turbocharged mill is based on a racing engine Ford used in its IMSA Daytona prototype and it is estimated to generate more than 600 horsepower. All that oomph will travel to the rear wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch transaxle. Production will be limited to only about 250 units per year according to Ford Performance boss Dave Pericak.

You can configure the Ford GT of your dreams here or you can continue reading to find out more about the options this supercar will carry.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari GTC4Lusso Configurator Goes Live

There’s just something about the design of a shooting brake that really gets a man’s attention. In the case of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso, which replaced the Ferrari FF, it’s probably the AWD and V-12 engine hidden behind the metal. When the GTC4Lusso debuted last month, we found out it came with an improvement in engine output, with 30 extra horses on tap for a total of 681 horsepower, and it boasts that new four-wheel steering system. With pricing expected in the $300,000 range, it might be out of your budget. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use Ferrari’s online configurator to build your dream car.

That’s right – the GTC4Lusso can now get customized through Ferrari’s online configurator. As you might expect, there are a lot of options to go over, including a total of 26 exterior colors, five different wheels, nine colors for the brake calipers, 15 interior color options, as well as lots of extra goodies to pick from. Needless to say, the configurator will draw you in, and before you know it, you’ve spent an hour customizing your dream car.

Once you’ve finished customizing your vehicle, a landing page displays everything you’ve selected throughout configuration. You can choose to request information directly from Ferrari, or print out a PDF form with all the details that you can save or take to a local dealership. Either way, if you dream of having a GTC4Lusso, check out the online configurator for yourself. And, while you’re at it, take a screen shot of your completed shooting brake and post it in the comments below.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Configure Your Own Mercedes Sleigh For Christmas

In previous years, some manufacturers have created their own variation of Santa’s Sleigh – you know to help the big guy get around a little better. Well this year, Mercedes decided to launch a sleigh configurator so that you can create your own sleigh for Santa.

The configurator starts out by offering up three models to choose from: Santa’s Silver Arrow, Santa’s F 015, and Santa’s G-Class. There are several color options to choose from, including Jingle Bells gold and Pine Needle Green. After choosing a color, you can move on to the type of runners you want on the sleigh, and then the four-reindeer drive system you want. Optional equipment includes a safety system, navigation, and an intelligent light system.

I decided to configure my own sleigh, and of course, I had to go for the AMG treatment. As you can see from the image above, I started off with the G-Class sleigh, painted in Jingle Bells gold. The stylish AMG runners should give the sleigh plenty of slide in the snow, and the AMG drive system looks to be more than adequate to get Santa around the globe in a hurry. Notice the powerful red eyes of the AMG reindeer? I also chose the Safety package plus, which gives Santa an angel overhead. The navigation system illuminates the North Star and who can forget the little elf that comes with the intelligent light system. I’m not sure if he can fly or not, so hopefully Santa lets him ride along when airborne.

There isn’t a whole lot to the configurator – it’s not quite like configuring a real AMG, but it’s a pretty cool twist for the holiday season. When you get a chance, check it out here. Merry Christmas.


PostHeaderIcon 2016 Ford Mustang Configurator Lets You Create The GT350R You Dream

The order books are now open for the 2016 Ford Mustang, which means you are now able to waste away your afternoon configuring your dream 2016 Shelby GT350 or Shelby GT350R. For me, it’s the Shadow Black GT350R with the black and red racing stripes, but there are numerous color options available for both cars and a handful of options. Check it out – just make sure your boss isn’t around.

More than just a waste of time, though, the configurator also reveals the pricing of both high-performance Mustang variants The 2016 Shelby GT350 will start at $47,795, while the track-oriented 2016 Shelby GT350R will be priced at $61,295. At these prices, the GT350 is about $1,000 more than the less-powerful 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392, and the GT350R is about $13,000 less expensive than the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.

When it comes to options, the GT350 can be equipped with the $6,500 Track Package that includes features such as MagneRide Damping System, aluminum strut tower brace, heavy-duty front springs, a raised decklid spoiler and oil coolers for the engine, transmission and rear differential. The $7,500 Technology Package adds a few of these upgrades, but like its name suggests, it mainly focuses on improving the cabin with features that include a seven-speaker audio system, heated and cooled front seats, dual zone automatic climate control and the latest Sync technology with voice-activated navigation. The downside of this package is that it isn’t available with the Recaro racing seats – drivers will have to settle for leather buckets.

Looking at the GT350R, it comes standard with all of the Track Package upgrades, so the sole option package is the $3,000 Electronics Package, with all of the tech goodies mentioned above in the GT350’s Tech Package. Both cars can have racing stripes for an extra $475, while a black-painted roof is $695.

As far as the non-Shelby Mustangs go, the biggest news for the 2016 Mustang is the debut of the California Special, which be a $1,995 option on the Mustang GT and Mustang GT convertible.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari California T Configurator Updated with New Colors and Options

Introduced for the 2015 model year, the California T created quite a stir among Ferrari enthusiasts, who saw the turbocharged convertible as a sign that Maranello had already begun to move away from naturally aspirated V-8 engines. But despite upsetting a few fans, the California T soon regained its popularity due to its increased output and reduced fuel consumption. Since then, Ferrari had already launched the 488 GTB, a turbocharged successor to the 458 Italia and the second member of the brand’s new family of sports cars employing forced induction.

The main reason I’m talking about the California T more than a year after its official debut is because the car’s online configurator just became a lot more fun. Ferrari has added an array of new colors and options to this online app, making the drop-top as customizable as any other model in the lineup.

If you’re looking to either book a California T or just have some fun and check out what’s new in the online configurator, this is the best time to give it a go. You can start designing your very own Ferrari by clicking here. Or you can continue reading past the break for more info and use our comments box below to share your creation with us.

PostHeaderIcon Build The McLaren 675LT Of Your Dreams With The New Online Configurator

When McLaren replaced the MP4-12C with the 650S for the 2015 model year, the sports car market finally gained a vehicle that could give the Ferrari 458 Speciale a run for its money. As cool as that may sound, things got way better when McLaren launched the 675LT. Not only lighter, quicker, and more powerful than the 650S, the 675LT also honors the F1 Long Tail’s heritage. What’s more, McLaren made it the most track-focused model in its Super Series lineup and assigned it to a limited production run. The 675LT has “collectible” written all over it.

Set to go on sale this autumn for around $350,000, the long-tailed sports car is now available for some virtual fun via the company’s online configurator. If you’ve already pre-ordered one, it’s a good time to start customizing it and selecting some of the options you might like. If you’re like me and can’t afford one, you might as well have a little fun and show me what your dream 675LT would look like.

Keep reading for more info on ways you can customize this British sports car and don’t forget to share your very own selection in the comments box below.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari 488 GTB Configurator Launched

Launched at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the 488 GTB opened a new chapter for Ferrari, one in which Maranello’s entry-level supercar uses a turbocharged engine. A newly developed, 3.9-liter V-8 replaced the naturally aspirated, 4.5-liter V-8 of the 458 series, making the 2016 488 GTB the second modern Ferrari to go the turbo way, after the 2015 California T, which was the company’s first vehicle to use forced induction in more than two decades. Design-wise, the 488 GTB remained true to the styling introduced by the 2010 458 Italia, although some body parts were heavily redesigned. Some cues from the LaFerrari and the classic 308 GTB are also visible.

The 488 GTB also represents a huge leap forward for a Ferrari entry-level supercar in terms of performance. The updated aerodynamics and drivetrain make it significantly quicker than its predecessor, and as quick as the beefed-up 2014 458 Speciale from 0 to 62 mph. The 488 is also impressively nimble on the track, lapping the Fiorano course faster than any other Ferrari but the insane 2014 LaFerrari. Impressive doesn’t even begin to cover it!

Now that Ferrari has unveiled most of the details and performance specs of 488 GTB, it’s time the supercar heads toward dealerships to replace the 458 Italia. Pricing is still a mystery, but until the actual figures roll in, Ferrari fired up the car’s online configurator for gearheads — Ferrari customers or not — to enjoy.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Launches Online Viper GTC Customizer

Looking to waste an hour or two? Then check out the 2015 Dodge Viper GTC customizer that just went live. Unlike your typical vehicle configurator, this customizer allows prospective Viper buyers and dreamers to choose from a number of different options and features, including 8,000 paint colors, 24,000 striping options and 16 interior trims. In total, Dodge says that there are more than 25 million available combinations to a create a one-of-one Viper.

Once created, users are able to download a PDF of their customized Viper showing a breakdown of all the add-ons, but the coolest part is that the images can be shared on the drivesrt.com/viper homepage and voted on by others. Dodge ensures that “no two customers can order the same configuration,” and with all of the ways there are to customize the Viper GTC, it’s easy to see how Dodge can make such a claim.

The Viper GTC and the 1-of-1 customization program was introduced earlier this year, and the cars will start rolling off the assembly line this month. Playing around with the website is fun and all, but if you’re serious about buying a bespoke 2015 Dodge Viper GTC, it will cost you at least $94,995, which isn’t that bad considering it’s only a $10,000 premium over the base Viper. It’s not clear how much extra certain paint jobs will cost, but buyers do get a personalized badge on the instrument panel as well as a personal “Viper Concierge.”

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator Goes Live

It’s been only a couple of days since Porsche unleashed the mighty 911 GT3 RS at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and the 500-horsepower sports car is already at our disposal through the company’s online configurator. So whether you have at least $175,900 to spare or you’re just curious about the options this track beast can be equipped with, now it’s a great time to start building your very own GT3 RS.

As a reminder, the GT3 RS returns to the market for 2016 after a four-year hiatus, with a naturally aspirated, 500-horsepower, 339-pound-feet, 4.0-liter, flat-six powerplant at the rear. The engine is identical to the one Porsche planted in the GT3 RS 4.0 back in 2011, but due to revised chassis and body components, as well as a quick-shifting PDK transmission, the new GT3 RS is 0.6 second quicker from 0 to 60 mph, a benchmark it now achieves in 3.3 ticks.

Visually, the new sports car represents a significant departure from the previous model, as Porsche decided to craft the aerodynamic body around a 911 Turbo shell. As a result, the 2016 GT3 RS is the first of its kind to sport Turbo intakes on the rear fenders. The louvered front fenders are yet another novelty for the RS, as is the magnesium roof, which lowers the center of gravity. But enough with the talk, let’s see what options the GT3 RS has in stock for 2016.
