Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 914 is the nirvana of the four-cylinder cars: two-litre, five speed, with the gauge pack. It’s also an unrestored, limited edition, with paint that earned it the nickname of Bumblebee. Might that just take away some of the sting of its price?
Special editions give automakers a chance to make some of the crazy stuff that they know most of their market wouldn’t dare to own. Sometimes, as is the case with these ten cars, they really go all out.
Special edition cars are often just motorized platforms to test the limits of human eye-rolling. There’s something about those Harley Davidson-edition F150s or the Fiat 500 Gucci cars that just feels like shameless brand-whoring. But not this one. Not these Mustangs made to honor the Apollo moon missions. These are…
A sidecar isn’t like any other vehicle. The design dates back to pre-WWII technology sharing between the Nazis and Soviet Union and the bikes are still made in the same factory that was located out of bomber range way out on the Siberian steppe. This is what they’re like to ride today.
The Ford Mustang GT California Special, the Nurburgring Edition Lexus LFA—there are plenty of special edition cars out there built or named for specific places, but what about us Canadians? Turns out we’ve had some neat limited editions of our own.
Ever wanted to sail through space on an mechanically unsound rust bucket while drinking Vodka from a sippy cup? Now you can! This MIR replica Ural sidecar pays homage to the pioneering Soviet space station.
We got a VW press release today that announced a new limited edition, the "Beetle Classic," which will be a nostalgia-inspired version of the latest Beetle, and will be the least expensive, starting at $20,195. Too bad they chickened out on using some real "classic" colors.
Carmakers love creating special editions, almost as much as they love giving them ridiculous names.
The current M3 is great for turning into a racecar, but also very good at being the ultimate poser machine. The new DTM Champion Edition is cool though, because it was made to celebrate a racecar, and the brand's success in October, when the Canadian Bruno Spengler won the German Touring Car Championship for the…
When Disneyland first opened, the attractions required purchased books of tickets for admission, the most popular of which demanded an ‘E' ticket to ride. Similarly, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Mercedes 500 is an E-ticket to ride, but is it worth the price of admission?
Last month we told you about the special edition Italian Shooting Brake that would be on all of the Christmas lists of whoever actually buys exotic cars from luxury department store catalogs. Upon going on sale the 10 limited edition Neiman Marcus Ferrari FF's were sold out within 50 minutes.
With the third Transformers movie arriving in less than 24 hours, Chevy has gone where we all knew it would eventually go and released another Bumblebee edition of the Camaro. It transforms a regular Camaro into a regular Camaro with stickers for just $3,000.
Mazda will only build 750 of these MX-5 Special Editions, essentially loaded models with some special paint colors. Outside of an auto show, this may be about as close as you can get to the $30,000 version of l'il Smiley.
I tell you what, my latest junkyard haul has me considering a name change to Brougham E. Landau (the E stands for Eleganté, with the accent).
We already assumed when we saw the new Sang Noir special edition of the Bugatti Veyron first-hand at the Frankfurt Auto Show it would be an extremely limited edition run of the world's most exclusive super car. We just didn't realize how limited. Evo magazine's reporting this month that the new Veyron dressed in black…
The Mazda Demio was named the RJC Japanese Car of the Year (not to be confused with the other Japanese Car of the Year) and to celebrate Mazda is releasing the Chiara Special Edition. For those that are unable to parlare Italiano, Chiara means bright. This special edition gets a special red paint sprinkled with gold…
According to some shots procured by Popular Mechanics' Jim Dunne (he's still alive? Really — who knew?), Ford's gone Dave-alicious to the 2008 model of Ford's cop-car. That's right, the three-bar grille that screams "Hi, I'm An American" is the extent to which FoMoCo's changed the exterior of the 2008 Crown Vic. Oh…
