When you see a car like this, youre inner happiness gives way to disappointment when you find out it’s just a concept. Fortunately, this is not just a concept. “What you do get, is what Lamborghini calls “an utterly indescribable experience of power and dynamics.” The J Roadster uses the same 700-horsepower, 6.5-liter V12 as its hardtop kin, and Lamborghini states that the open-air J will hit speeds as high as 186 miles per hour. In an effort to save weight even further, the automaker has used a new carbon fiber fabric called “Carbonskin” that is apparently soft and supple enough to be used on the seats and interior trim. Regardless, we’re sure that once you’re actually driving this beast at speed, you won’t really care how good the fabric under your butt is.”
“Billed as a stylistic vision of the future of travel, the theme of the project is a “mobile living” concept with a beachfront motif designed to appeal to surfing and watersports types. To that end, both the Airstream and the Mini Cooper S Clubman were dudded-up with wetsuit neoprene fabrics, colors and flower prints designed with surfer dudes and dudettes in mind. The trailer opens up on one side so you can get a better look at the surf while lounging on the built-in sunbathing bed.”

Nothing says class like a classic. The Lamborghini LM002 was born in 1986 and ceased all reproduction in 1993. Only 301 of these monster machines were ever created. With a V12 L503 engine, “special bagging, stripes, an upgraded interior, group effects, and a chrome front” this is an automobile for the soul. Like a fine bottle of wine, this car’s age has only made it sweeter; a true necessity for any vintage collection.
With only a dozen in the entire world, the Maserati MC12 Versione Corse is up there with the Seven Wonders of the World. The MC12 Versione Corse refused to be assembled like an ordinary car. For this reason, if you want to drive this beautiful piece of machinery on the street you’re going to have to make a few changes on your own to make it street legal. As winner of the FIA GT Manufacturers’ Championship in 2005, this is a car with pure speed in its DNA.
Forget about your coin or stamp collection, get a real hobby, start collecting Ferraris. The Ferrari Superamerica 45 is a sports car built especially for Peter Kalikow, a Ferrari collector from New York, to celebrate his 45 years of business with Ferrari.
