To celebrate 10 years of its high-performance F cars, Lexus plans to come out with a couple of special edition models. These will include a 2018 Lexus GS F sedan, together with an RC F Coupe, and both will be dressed to make them stand out when they’re on display at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. Both models will be given the same gray suit with blue accents inside and out.
This may already sound familiar to you, as the automaker actually has already brought them to the Tokyo Motor Show late last year. But what we know at that time was that those models will be exclusive to the Japanese market only – apparently, that has changed.
And yes, we are right about that. Though it will just be a limited model in the US, with only 340 units, the good news is that it will be available, and it will likely be very difficult to get one. Only 240 anniversary versions of the RC F coupe will be built, and 100 units of the thinner GS F sedans will get the special treatment. Each Lexus dealer in the US will only carry one unit of the coupe.Read the entire article Lexus brings special edition 10th anniversary models of the GS F and RC F to Chicago Auto Show
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Smart brand in the United States. The company aims to celebrate this milestone by launching a special edition 10th Anniversary Edition of the Fortwo Coupe Electric Drive sometime this year.
The Anniversary Edition will be painted in an exclusive shade of blue which they call the Sapphire Blue Metallic, while the exterior will be getting 10th Anniversary badges to give the car some accents. It will be sitting on a set of 16-inch Brabus Monoblock VII wheels, painted in Matte Anthracite Grey to give it a little contrast. Overall, we think that it has a cool colour combination, with the dark blue body and the wheels that stand out.
Most of the changes for the special edition car can be found on the exterior. Though there are changes in the cabin, they may not be as significant. And the only obvious ones include the Brabus-supplied parts for the shift knob and floor mats. Unlike the regular model, the 10th Anniversary Edition model will be getting the Sport Package as a standard. This means that it will be getting brushed stainless steel pedal covers and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.Read the entire article Smart will launch special-edition Fortwo to celebrate 10th year in the US
Believe it or not, the first time Chevrolet produced a truck was 100 years ago, and to celebrate their 100th year in 2018, the automaker will make special-edition trims for the Silverado and the Colorado. To make it even more exclusive, both models were painted in Centennial Blue, and have exclusive heritage-styled bowtie emblems and badges that spell “100-year” that were inspired by Chevy trucks from 1918 and beyond.
The Centennial treatment for the 2018 Colorado will be offered on Z71 trim levels in either Crew or Extended-Cab configurations. The 100-year-badge can be found on doors, while the heritage bowtie logos can be found on the front and rear, a spray-in bedliner, rubber floor mats with the same bowties. The Colorado will be riding on 18-inch wheels including chrome trim for the tow hooks and other exterior trim.
On the other hand, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Centennial pack will only be available on the LTZ Z71 trim in Crew Cab configuration. Similar to the Colorado, the Silverado will be wearing the various exterior badges, floor mats, bedliner, and extra chrome trim. It will then be sitting on 22-inch chrome-trimmed wheels and the steering wheels will get a chrome bowtie badge too.Read the entire article Centennial Edition of the 2018 Chevy Colorado and Silverado will be out soon
A pickup truck that is soon celebrating its 50th birthday has the right to be invincible, especially if it has conquered various terrains and weather conditions not only in one part of the globe, but around the world – including the North Pole and the slopes of Icelandic volcanoes. Building on this, the Toyota Hilux celebrates its half-a-century of existence in the global pickup truck market with the unveiling of a special edition model at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Dubbed as the Toyota Hilux Invincible 50, this special edition show car marks 50 years of the pickup truck’s dominance in the global market. Toyota Hilux Invincible 50 marks the iconic status of the pickup truck around the world.
Toyota first released the Hilux in 1968, and commenced its sales in Europe a year after in 1969. After eight generations and nearly 50 years, more than 18 million units have found their way into customers’ hands, not just in a few markets, but in more than 180 countries and regions around the world. This is why the Toyota Hilux can be seen on the roads and even the off-roads of Europe, North and South Americas, Africa and Asia. In fact, the iconic pickup truck has already conquered a number of challenging places and events, like in Antarctica, the Dakar Rally and the Top Gear program of TV channel BBC.Read the entire article Toyota spices up 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show display with new Hilux Invincible 50 special model
Luxury automakers often come up with something special or limited when celebrating special events like anniversaries or when they reach a milestone. And this year, McLaren celebrates their 50th F1 anniversary. So the first thing you’ll probably ask is, what special edition model are they going to unveil? Well, it isn’t an F1 car, but a road bike instead.
The street bike is a product of McLaren and Specialized as they work together to build a bike that would blend in with any road race, while celebrating fifty years of historic grand prix and Formula One racing. They call this the S-Works McLaren Roubaix, a road bike with a handful of collaborations between both brands, after the Venge, the S-Works Tarmac and the Venge ViAS.
Looking at it from afar, it looks like it had been painted in yellow. But it is actually finished in a custom Heritage Orange that mimic the automaker’s race cars and modern street legal vehicles, accented with matte black parts. The road bike uses McLaren’s own data logging software that works hand in hand with the Rolling Efficiency Simulator, which is the software they use when designing a part of the bike.Read the entire article This $11,500 road bike marks McLaren’s 50th F1 anniversary
BMW will be releasing a limited edition 7 Series in the same way that the 3 Series and 5 Series models got their own anniversary editions from the previous years. The BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre, which is limited to only 200 examples, will be manufactured at BMW’s Dingolfing plant in Germany. Interestingly, this is also where the 7 Series was born and has been produced since 1977.
In line with the celebration of its 40th year, BMW is offering two special paint variants exclusively available from its very own Individual catalogue. Customers can choose between the Petrol Mica metallic (7 Series’ original body color) and the Frozen Silver metallic body paint. Its array of enhancements will include the brand’s high gloss Shadow Line trim, a new set of BMW Individual light V-spoke alloy wheels, as well as BMW’s M Aerodynamics Package. All limited-run 7 Series 40 Jahre also come with specially marked B-pillar coverings and door pillars to underline the segment’s 40 years of existence.
BMW’s Individual package is prominent as well inside the cabin such as the brand’s soft premium leather upholstery. The choices available are either in Smoke White/Black or Smoke White/Cohiba two color combinations. Any color scheme selected comes with a pair of limited edition comfort cushions in Smoke White which includes floor mats and Alcantara headliner of the same color. Depending on the choice of upholstery combination, the floor mat’s edging can be had either in brown or black while the accents can be availed either in Piano black lacquer or Smoke brown woodgrain.Read the entire article BMW 7 Series celebrates 40 years with limited edition 40 Jahre
Fifty years ago, engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher left Mercedes-Benz and decided to rent a barn in Burgstall an der Murr just by Stuttgart where they created the “AMG Motorenbau und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH”. To keep you enlightened, “AMG” comes from the initials of their surnames, while the “G” comes from the initial of Grossapach, that was Aufrecht’s hometown back then.
A decade after AMG has been established by the two, the headquarters was moved to Affalterbach, but development of race car engines remained in Burgstall. In 1993, AMG became popular when people knew that they were the ones upgrading Mercedes models. This was the beginning of a new collaboration between both companies, and the C36 was the first mass-market car launched to compete against the BMW M3 (E36).
On January 1, 1999, Daimler-Chrysler bought 51 percent of AMG shares, then renaming it Mercedes-AMG GmbH. And by January 2005, Mercedes-AMG has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG.Read the entire article 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 celebrates five decades of AMG
If you fancy owning any automaker's limited edition releases then the Land of the Rising Sun is the place to be. Following the anticipated release of the CLA 180 donned in a Star Wars theme, Mercedes-Benz is back at it again with another limited edition in a more appealing AMG guise. The German automaker will be releasing a one of a kind G63 AMG 50th Anniversary Edition to celebrate Mercedes-AMG's 50 years in the automotive biz. However, Mercedes G63 will only be limited to Japan.
The 50th Anniversary Edition G63 will have only 50 units, and will be painted in Mauritius metallic paint that will give an even more premium look to the G63. The roof, fenders, contrast, mirrors and even the side trim will have the classy gloss black finish. To match the shadow look, a set of 20 inch AMG five spoke wheels is also fitted. Red callipers are also attached behind the black wheels that show off the large brakes.
Not to be left behind when it comes to swanky designs, Mercedes created an interior that boasts of high class Designo leather with diamond stitching. The interior of the G56 is also offered in 4 2-tone shades. In particular, 24 units will be produced in Porcelain white, 15 will have a black interior, 6 boasting of a Mocha Brown interior, and the last 5 will have a Saddle Brown toned interior. 3 of them will be bearing black leather for a 2-tone design. For a sporty look, an AMG Carbon Fiber trim package will seal the deal.Read the entire article Japan-exclusive Mercedes-AMG G63 to be released for 50th anniversary
This one takes the cake for the ultimate customer service. A centenarian treats himself for hitting the 100 year mark by purchasing a £100k Lexus. Upon hearing of the purchase, Lexus decided to make the celebration a bit more special, by customizing the luxury car the centenarian will never forget.
Who is the gentleman in question? He is Barry High OBE who hails from Blockley and is duly recognized as a loyal customer to the Japanese automaker.
Barry High joined the Royal Engineers in the Army when he left school, and by the time the World War 2 concluded, he has risen up to the rank of Major. Afterwards his main trade was construction. He reportedly bought as many as 25 automobiles from Lexus Cheltenham for the last 16 years.

Sixty-four years ago, Chevrolet introduced the very first Corvette. And to celebrate its 65th anniversary in 2018, the company decided to launch a special edition C7 at the upcoming auto show in New York.
Only 650 units of the Carbon 65 Edition will be produced - and that number does not need further explanation as it is pretty obvious why. Though the American package is limited to 650 units which will be sold globally, it is not as limited as the Japan-only Heritage Edition Grand Sports, at only five units. The Corvette Carbon 65 Edition will be available on the 2018 Grand Sport 3LT and the Z06 3LZ.
June 30, 1953 was when the very first Corvette came to life. Built at the Flint factory in Michigan, all 300 units were finished with white exterior paired with a red upholstery. But Chevrolet is veering from this colour scheme (for this model, at least). And for the 2018 special edition, the colour palette will be way different from the original Corvette.Read the entire article 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition celebrates the 65th anniversary of the Corvette
The renowned Shelby Super Snake is now 50 years old! As we greet the Super Snake a “happy birthday” or a “happy anniversary,” Shelby itself is celebrating half a century of this ultra-high performance muscle car with a new generation car.
Just like its 1967 and 2007 predecessors, the 2017 Shelby Super Snake is based on the Ford Mustang. For the latest generation of the Shelby Super Snake, the base was the 2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback. A number of tweaks have been made to transform the 2017 Ford Mustang GT into the 2017 Shelby Super Snake. Shelby American and Ford Performance worked hand in hand to deliver the latest generation of the Super Snake, with the cooperation of partners like Borla, Michelin and Wilwood.
At its finest form, the 2017 Ford Mustang GT – powered by an already powerful 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine – could provide 435 hp of output at 6,500 rpm and 400 lb.-ft. of torque available at 4,250 rpm. However, as powerful as it is, the Mustang GT is no match for the Shelby Super Snake. The numbers say it all. The now supercharged V8 engine in the Shelby Super Snake is rated to deliver 670 hp, or around 54 percent more power than on the Ford Mustang GT.Read the entire article Shelby American celebrates golden year of Super Snake with 2017 Anniversary Edition
Alpina, the well know German tuner announced that it is celebrating its 50th anniversary and in order to celebrate this event it will create 50 saloons or estates and 50 similar coupes. The special models will be based on the B5 Bi-Turbo and the B6 Bi-Turbo, and each vehicle will include hand-crafted Edition 50 body as well as trim features and a revised V8 engine.
According to Alpina, the 4.4-liter V8 engine will deliver 600 hp (441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, making the B5 Bi-Turbo and B6 Bi-Turbo their most powerful models ever developed.
The company says that the heavily-revised engine found on both models received two Alpina-developed water-cooled intercoolers close coupled to the turbochargers, a large-capacity oil radiator and suplimentary coolant radiator, a large-volume air-cooled intercooler located behind the bespoke front spoiler, new light-weight pistons, a high-capacity fuel system and other unique upgrades.Read the entire article 2015 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo and B6 Bi-Turbo Edition 50 celebrate company’s 50th anniversary
In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the McLaren F1 GTR victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, McLaren Special Operations introduced a limited edition model based on the 650S. Dubbed the McLaren 650S Le Mans, the new edition will see a limited production of just 50 units, all coupes, that will be available globally.
Designed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) in consultation with Peter Stevens a.k.a. the designer of the legendary McLaren F1, the new McLaren 650S Le Mans features a number of styling enhancements from the iconic race-winner.
The most noticeable is the roof-mounted snorkel air intake that channels airflow to the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, but also the ‘Le Mans Edition’ lightweight wheels (19-inch front/20-inch rear) inspired by the motorsport rims found on the 1995 racers.Read the entire article MSO introduces the McLaren 650S Le Mans, celebrates 20th anniversary of famous win
Back in May 2014, BMW introduced the 30th anniversary Edition of the M5 called “30 Jahre M5”, a model which would see a production of just 300 units, with only 30 of them reaching the United States. 29 units were sold immediately, but the last one has been auction at an event organized by Barrett-Jackson.
The high-performance German sedan was auctioned for a staggering $700,000 and the lucky buyer is NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrik. Still, what’s even more interesting is that the money will go to the BMW Club of America Foundation. For those who don’t know, the BWM M5 “30 Jahre M5” is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 600 hp (441 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, while top speed is 155 mph (250 km/h) or 305 km/h (189 mph) when equipped with the optional M Driver’s Package.Read the entire article Last US-spec BMW M5 “30 Jahre M5” auctioned for $700,000
2015 will be the year when Aston Martin Works marks its diamond jubilee and in order to celebrate the 60 glorious years at Newport Pagnell, the company will build six limited edition sports cars. The six bespoke vehicles are all versions of the current Vanquish in either Coupe and Volante form and will be created in partnership with Aston Martin’s Gaydon-based design team Q by Aston Martin.
Each vehicle will be tailored in order to reflect one of the six decades being celebrated, but the most interesting thing is that each car comes with bespoke rotaries around major controls in the centre console. The catch is that each rotary has been cast from metal that had formed a piston in an Aston Martin engine of the relevant period.
According to Aston Martin, the rotaries will be laser etched with Work’s Anniversary wording. The six pistons have been drawn from engines in the following Newport Pagnell-built sports cars: 1955-1965: DB 2/4 Mk II saloon, 1965-1975: DB5, 1975-1985: V8 Coupe, 1985-1995: V8 Vantage X-pack, 1995-2005: V8 Vantage supercharged and 2005-2015: Original Vanquish.Read the entire article Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary Vanquish Limited Edition unveiled

We already know that Ferrari is preparing a special model in order to celebrate its 60th anniversary in the United States and that the upcoming model is going to be an Aperta version of the F12berlinetta. Well, we were right again, just like we were right on the 458 Speciale Spider as we were the only website to announce the new model back in July.
The new Ferrari F60America will be officially introduced on October 12 and as expected, only 10 examples will be made and are already sold. According to Ferrari, the F60America is based on the F12berlinetta and uses the same 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque.
Despite the fact that it is a convertible, the F60America is as fast as the F12berlinetta and is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds. When it comes to design, the vehicle’s front end is dominated by the classic Ferrari single front grille with chrome finish and integrated air intakes for the brakes.Read the entire article F60America is Ferrari’s present for its 60th anniversary in the United States

Limited edition supercars have always been a bestseller and you may already know what Lamborghini did with its Veneno Coupe and Roadster, which celebrated company’s 50th anniversary. Ferrari wants to follow the same strategy in the United States where it celebrates its 60th year and announced that it developed a special car and only 10 units will be built, each priced at 2.5 million euros.
There are no details regarding the new vehicle but taking in consideration its price, we expect it to use the same drivetrain found on the LaFerrari, Ferrari’s first car in its history to be powered by the HY-KERS System.
This means it could use a 6.3-liter V12 engine that pumps out 800 hp at 9.250 rpm and 700 Nm at 6,750 rpm. The supercar also carries an electric motor delivering 163 hp or 120 kW. With a total output of 963 hp, the LaFerrari is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds.Read the entire article Ferrari will build a limited edition supercar to celebrate 60 years in the USA
