Pininfarina Sergio concept

The world usually sees cars like the Pininfarina Sergio at a few select international auto shows during the debut year. Then the outlandishly-styled cars retire to their designers' headquarters and museums, peeping out every so often for special events and shows. Sometimes they fetch millions at auctions.

In the 1980’s, Renault’s much modified R5 Turbo would slide its way about the rally circuit in a valiant effort to claim the podium. With its exaggerated hindquarters and impressive power-to-weight ratio the R5 Turbo was an instant rally hit, but it was femme fatale Fatima Blush driving a red R5 Turbo in James Bond’s 1983 Never Say Never Again that would bring the impudent racer to the attention of the masses.

Here's a look back at the Raging Bull's major achievements as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary.  Read More

The Egoista debuts to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary

Controversial – that's about the nicest way we can describe Lamborghini's 50th anniversary efforts on the concept car front.
