2006 Mercedes Benz McLaren SLR

 dm2322-wzeclvie_62

One of the most misunderstood – yet extraordinary – supercars, the SLR has been splitting opinions since it first came out. From looks to handling to performance, the SLR has equally passionate critics and fans; count us in on that second category. Dramatic looks, fantastic performance and featuring one of the most impressive amounts of breaking power ever given to a road car, the carbon fiber bodied, V8 powered (617 bhp) SLR does 0 to 60 in little over 3 seconds. Reliability has been truly great for this kind of car and it’s not surprising that prices for SLRs still are what they are.

2013 Maserati Gran Cabrio S

 412528455_1_1

In terms of modern convertibles, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better choice than the Gran Cabrio. Maserati hit it out of the park with this one, they really did. The looks are perfect, there’s no other word to describe it. Plus, with the Sport version you get a little bit more grunt but still keep the fantastic body which later versions like the MC Shift completely spoiled. Plus, isn’t this the most gorgeous shades or red you’ve ever seen on a car?

1996 BMW B12 Alpina Limousine

 

703da46c-235d-11e7-9345-eba25dfa657d_13

So in the mid 90’s, if you were an important executive and needed to go to all the business meetings, but still wanted a little spiciness in your daily drive, what would you get? Well, Alpina proposed this: the B12. An E38 full of vitamin (geeeet it???), Alpina’s interpretation of the big BMW V12 executive sedan meant a power boost and revised handling. The one offered here for sale looks in need of a little TLC, but you may even get it for under the estimate auction price and it is A LOT of car for the money, so if you’re cool with maintenance costs, do us proud!

 

Price: Auction, estimated 19.500 TO 25.500 € (21.832 to 28.550 USD)

2016 Jaguar Project 7

 

project7_img_3352_72

A product of the recently created SVO division – Special Vehicles Operations – at Jaguar/Land Rover, the Project 7 is a back to basics concept: an F-Type platform that was made a little bit better in every aspect with more power, less weigh, better handling and killer looks reminiscent of the great Jags of old, the Project 7 is and always will be a desirable collectible. Limited production and generally very favorable reviews from press and owners alike made sure of that.

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

 295a0952

The sexiest of the topless 911s, the Speedster pulls off the not at all easy trick of looking perfectly modern at – in this case – 28 years old. This particular example offered for sale is pretty much a brand new car with just over 1.600km, which begs the question: who would drive a gorgeous looking car like this so little? The color is Porsche’s “linen grey”, so there’s a sort of champagne undertone to it which makes it look even more appealing in the sunlight and that is what this car is all about, fun in the sun; top down, foot down.

1977 Lotus Esprit S1

 img_3504_5

Honoring the memory of one of our favorite Bonds, Sir Roger Moore, we couldn’t let this month go by without finding a white S1 Esprit to feature. Recently restored and looking as great as it did back in 77, this little wedge of awesomeness makes us all wish that we had a submarine Lotus…but hey, just the real, stock car is pretty damn good as well!

2011 Bentley Continental GT Supersports

 _dsc4652_1

If there’s anything sexier than a stunning, triple black coupe…we don’t know about it. And when that coupe is – arguably – the finest of the Continental GTs, well…our only reaction can only be a massively enthusiastic “yes please!” The Continental GT gets a lot of hate because of the kind of less than subtle clientele which seems to have a fondness for it (even we’ve complained about that), but it really is a fantastic car. Looks great, does its job exceedingly well – becoming a benchmark for Grand Tourers –it’s as reliable as you can demand a car of this nature to be and it’s immensely comfortable and well made. Handling and agility were a couple of the points that seemed to get folks riled up about it, so in 2009 Bentley came up with this, the brilliant Supersports, a pumped up Continental on a diet, the (then) fastest, most powerful Bentley ever. AV is hopelessly in love with it, that’s why the upcoming 2017 generation of the Supersports kinda rubs us the wrong way; we’re sure it will be a pretty damn amazing ride, but the air intake palooza at the front and the rear spoiler ruin the classic beauty of the thing. Guess we’ll just keep on drooling over this one.
