The Pratte Collection auctioned last week, is best known for containing Carroll Shelby’s 800 hp Super Snake Cobra, the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Concept car and the GM Futurliner, but it also contained one of the largest collection of childrens' cars ever assembled. More than 70 went to auction and they'll make you drool.  Read More

The production spec Acura NSX Version 2.0

The Acura NSX finally made it into production specification today in Detroit and, as expected, the wait has been worthwhile. The internal combustion engine is now hyperventilating with twin-turbos instead of the naturally-aspirated version we saw previously, it boasts three electric motors and pushes more than 550 hp through a nine-speed dual clutch transmission, while the price tag will be in the vicinity of US$150,000 when it lands later this year.  Read More

Ford has redefined its sportiest ever model (the GT) for a second time, vastly improving aerodynamics, stripping weight through the use of lightweight composites, and delivering a mid-mounted, next-generation, twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 producing more than 600 horsepower. The car will be on sale next year.  Read More

We first drove the Spira4u in its first prototype form six years ago and we were mightily impressed. Conceived as a low cost (both to manufacture and run), hyper-economical vehicle to mitigate the world's 1.25 million road deaths each year, the Spira4u went on to become a finalist in the Automotive XPrize. It was never intended to run against the world's biggest universities and brightest minds – it was always intended for production. Now it's there and seeking to license its design across the globe.  Read More

One of only 15 ever produced, this 1950 Vincent Series C White Shadow was sold for US$111,...

Only 15 White Shadows were produced, which makes them the rarest version of the second most desirable motorcycle to collectors (Brough Superior is the most coveted marque). It was therefore logical that this bike, which went to auction in Las Vegas last night, would join the other 14 Vincent V-twins in the top 100 motorcycles of all time.  Read More

Batista Pininfarina's personal championing of this radical project to build a more efficie...

The name Pininfarina is synonymous with expensive and elegant Italian sports cars such as the Maserati GranTurismo, Alfa Romeo Spyder and a log file of Ferraris such as the 365 GTB/4, Enzo, F40 and Testarossa. The global design legend does much more than style beautiful cars though, and ample testimony will appear at auction this week in the form of a little known 1960s concept car. With its four wheels arranged in a diamond shape, the tiny aerodynamic four-seater Pininfarina-X had a drag coefficient of 0.23, indicating that Pininfarina was a long way ahead of the rest of the world in exploring the critical area of aerodynamics, long before it was fashionable.  Read More

In February 2014, a new Harley-Davidson formerly owned by Pope Francis fetched €241,500 (US$330,938) at auction – 25 times its showroom value – thanks to its Holy alliance. Now it all looks set to happen again with an ex-Pope Benedict XVI Harley-Davidson FLSTC 103 Heritage Softail Classic going to auction in Paris on February 5.  Read More

A 60-year-old fully-functioning "cutaway" BSA Gold Star motorcycle will be one of the stars of several collectible motorcycle auctions in Las Vegas later this week. The entire internals of the motorcycle, including the drive train and suspension are all visible as they work. It's living art for the mechanically fascinated! Built by BSA for the 1956 Earls Court Motorcycle Show in London and restored by Harris Vincent Gallery. Records will fall.  Read More
