If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been wondering why it’s taken the world’s two most important industries—the macaron industry and the automotive industry—so long to find a suitable collaboration. Well, wonder no more, beacause finally there’s a car built in partnership with the world’s leading macaron…
It’s not really clear why, but for some reason Mercedes-Benz of Japan decided that what they really needed was a Star Wars-themed edition of their CLA small sedan. Then, to really seal the deal, what they came up with looks a lot like a regular CLA with about $100 of crap from ThinkGeek thrown in. Bang up job, fellas.
Ferrari, if you didn’t know, is a special little car company that’s been around since 1947—meaning it turns 70 next year. To celebrate, the special little car company is working on 350 unique special editions for its special customers.
BMW has released a special edition run of 500 M3s celebrating 30 years of the model with this gorgeous Macao Blue Metallic paintwork shared with the original E30. There’s also a white one but I’ll judge you if you choose it over this.
I wonder how much they’d charge for me to nab the paint code in the future...
There is something simple that is very distracting and annoying and arguably wrong about this new special edition GMC Terrain “Nightfall” special edition. Can you spot it?
Oh, another special edition with a name so dumb your eyes roll back into your skull and you relapse into an alternate reality in your mind, scrambling for the remnants of your sanity as it flees reality for the oasis of darkness. It’s the
Dodge Ram “Yellow Rose of Texas.”
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…
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.
What's synonymous with off-roading and makes any truck look extra badass? "Bolted-on polished tube nudge bars!" said no one. But apparently that's what makes the Toyota Hilux Dakar "the ultimate Hilux."
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).
