One-off Ferrari SP38 is a one-off dream inspired by the legendary F40

Ferrari recently revealed their latest project, dubbed the SP38, which is a one-off based on the 488 GTB that uses its chassis and running gear. This model was ordered from them by one of their most dedicated customers. This customer has allegedly already received the keys to the supercar at the Fiorano track, and the car was put through its paces just after its reveal.

Without a surprise, the car’s design comes from the Ferrari Design Center and reflects the vision of the customer, an enthusiast who has a real passion for racing. The result? A gorgeous supercar that expresses all the beauty and innovation inherent in Ferrari’s road cars - the car is equally as good on the road and on the track. As for the design, it gets most of its inspiration from the iconic F40, from which the three layer metallic red paint also draws impulse. This paint job marks a radical departure from the language aesthetic of the donor car. It also has a twin turbo, twin intercooler set-up.

When you give the front end a closer look, you will notice that it has a pair of unusual headlights, which were especially designed for the SP38. The mandatory daytime running lights have also been moved to the front bumper to allow for an extremely thin headlights form. As a result, this adds more character to the car.

Pagani Huayra Lampo is a retro one-off model dressed in Fiat Turbina livery

If there is one thing that Pagani Automobili and Fiat have in common, it is the fact that they are Italian companies that build and assemble vehicles. There is currently no connection between the two companies or the two Italian brands. However, a one-off sports car project is serving as a bridge between Pagani and Fiat, at least visually.

Here is the new Pagani Huayra Lampo, a one-off creation that was born from the collaboration between Pagani and Garage Italia Customs. No, the Pagani Huayra Lampo didn’t come into existence as a project between Pagani and Fiat. However, the new Huayra Lampo wraps itself in a retro theme heavily inspired by a Fiat of the 1950s. This Fiat vehicle -- the 1954 Fiat Turbina -- was very well known despite never coming out of production and remaining as a concept car.

Fiat introduced the Turbina in 1954 as an engineering concept that makes use of a gas turbine for propulsion power. The Turbina was known for employing a mid-mounted powerplant with three different turbines: two serving as compressors for the third turbine, which propels the wheels. This engine delivers 300 hp (220 kW) of max output, enough to allow the Fiat Turbina to reach a top speed of 155 miles per hour. Furthermore, the Fiat Turbina has a very low coefficient of drag value of 0.14 Cd, a record it held for 30 years. But Fiat had to discontinue the Turbina because it consumed too much fuel and had issues with overheating. The 1954 Fiat Turbina, however, continues to exist to this day, living in retirement at the Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile in Turin, Italy.

One-off 2006 Lamborghini Concept S is up for grabs at RM Sotheby’s auction

Everybody gets animated when they hear that a second-hand Lamborghini or a Ferrari will be auctioned. But what makes people even more excited is when the car is a limited edition, or better yet, a one-off production ready concept car. In this case, a 2006 Lamborghini Concept S. A lot of you might think that you have seen this car somewhere, and that is because it is a roofless Gallardo. No, it is not a Spyder if that is what you are thinking, because Spyders have a retractable roof and a windshield.

We first witnessed the 2006 Lamborghini Concept S back in 2005 as a design study. This was done to pay homage to the vintage single-seat, open cockpit race cars during the time Lamborghini was better known for its tractors. But unlike others that had individual cockpits for the driver and the passenger, the Concept S added an extra air inlet for the V10 engine. Both the front and the rear had aerodynamic tweaks that would give the car better downforce.

Initially, it did not matter since the concept did not have an engine, but then Lamborghini built an actual example with an engine. One hundred examples of the Concept S were supposed to be build, and these were supposed to be offered to loyal Lamborghini customers. However, when production finally began, they realized that the cost and time were much more than they have expected, so after the first car was completed, production had been cancelled, making this 2006 model the one and only example.

Lamborghini reveals unique Aventador S, customized by Ad Personam

Lamborghini decided to reveal a one-off Aventador S, built by their Ad Personam division, at the recent 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The car’s exterior has a beautiful bluish-grey matte finish they call Grigio Acheso, combined with matte orange lines all over the body. The roof is made with glossy carbon, paired with a matte black exhaust system, and black multi-spoke wheels with bright orange brake calipers.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find a two-tone cabin in black Alcantara with orange accents, to match the exterior design. The colours extend from steering wheel, all the way to the seats. There are contrast stitching, orange trim, and an Opera Unica plate that indicates the car’s unique specification.

British luxury automaker Aston Martin celebrates its new partnership with the Henley Royal Regatta sporting event by designing a one-off DB11 sports car that they recently revealed. The car explores exclusive paint and upholstery colours, and premium craft elements.

Aston Martin recently launched the “Q by Aston”, which is the company’s personalization service at the Gaydon design studio. This was where they crafted the special edition Henley Regatta sports car, where they made use of the new options that were being offered by the new range.

To be more specific, the exterior of the DB11 has been finished with an exclusive Diavolo Red (an eye-catching dark metallic red paint) accented with a Satin Scintilla Silver roof, combined with an exterior pack and a carbon fibre body pack that cover the front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser, side strakes, hood blades, and mirror caps - all that in the lightweight material, and treated with a satin finish.

After Rolls-Royce unveiled the Sweptail at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, X-Tomi Design now reimagines the most expensive car ever built as a convertible. Yes, it’s the same controversial Rolls-Royce with a price tag of $13 million commissioned by a special client!

Having been inspired by the yachts and swept tail models between the 1920s and 1930s, the client requested Rolls-Royce to make a car with surfaces similar to the hull of a yacht.

As for Xtomi’s latest interpretation, the Sweptail convertible nearly has all the footings of a Phantom Drophead Coupe. Albeit the fact that the coachbuilder has already rolled out its “Last of Last” edition in Saudi Arabia just the previous month. To best describe the Sweptail, the coupe’s massive bodywork with exceptionally designed boat tail comes with panoramic glass roof and extravagant interior that can only seat two people. Little did we expect that it can look just as nice as a cabriolet with rear seats.

Behold, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail! The Sweptail is probably the biggest two-seater car that has ever been built. It may look odd at first glance, and you may not be fond of its design, especially the front end of the car, but it’s true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This specific model was exclusively built for a “Rolls-Royce connoisseur” so it you aren’t one, then this car won’t probably be attractive to you.

We don’t know the identity of the person who made this car possible, but without a doubt he is powerful enough to have Rolls-Royce build him a single car with his own design in mind, and that he has at least nine zeros in his bank account. Though the company did not reveal who the individual was, we know that it is a guy because that’s what they said in the press release. He was described as a “connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft”.

The buyer went up to the company and asked them to build a car that was inspired by the 1920s and 1930s Rolls-Royce, which explains the extravagant shape reminding us of a vintage Rolls-Royce Boat Tail speedster. The individual had worked with the company for years on the design of the car, turning the ride into a two-seater with a wood mid-shelf replacing the back seats that feature an illuminated glass lip. There is also a polished wood hat shelf with luggage rails covered by a teardrop-shaped glass roof, giving a bright and airy cockpit. On the front and rear ends, are polished “08” badges. We don’t know yet for sure what they signify.

If you’re selling some of the most expensive and most exclusive cars in the world, perhaps it would be a great idea to commission an ultra-rare work from the same marque to celebrate a new milestone. Perhaps, this was what H.R. Owen luxury dealership group had thought when it commissioned one of the most exclusive Rolls-Royce models ever built -- the Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair Edition.

H.R. Owen – through its Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London luxury dealership – decided to commission the Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair Edition as it celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. According to the dealership group, it commissioned the Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair Edition to celebrate 85 years of expertise in “creating uniquely desirable motor cars.”

This very exclusive model is a drophead coupe named after the Mayfair area in the heart of Berkeley Square, the location of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London. Founded by Harold Rolfe Owen, H.R. Owen through has been selling Rolls-Royce cars in Mayfair since 1932.

There was quite some fuzz when suddenly a yellow Ferrari with a number of similarities with the Ferrari F12berlinetta showed up during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali event at the Daytona International Speedway. There were speculations it was a one-off special order derived from the F12berlinetta, but back then, there were no confirmed information from Ferrari. But now, Ferrari has spoken up about its latest one-off creation – the SP 275 RW Competizione.

According to Ferrari, the one-off SP 275 RW Competizione is underpinned by the chassis that underpins the F12berlinetta, which is considered as one of the most beautiful Ferrari sports cars of all time. Taking care of the design of the SP 275 RW Competizione is none other than Ferrari’s own Styling Centre, with the cooperation of Italian car design firm Pininfarina SpA.

As implied by its moniker, the Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione takes inspiration from the Ferrari 275 GTB, which is considered as one of the most iconic V12 berlinettas in the 1960s. In fact, the SP 275 RW Competizione could be considered as a modern take on the 275 GTB, but with some personal flavors from the person who ordered it – a certain dentist from Florida named Rick Workman, hence the rw initials. In fact, Workman had initials on the one-off Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione.

It was sitting along with an F60 America and a P540 Superfast Aperta when it was photographed at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali year-end gathering last weekend. Indeed, fans couldn’t get enough of reports about the new special edition Ferrari. This basically explains why a Ferrari “F12 TdF” Facebook fan page and the “FerrariChat” forum have been flooded with “shares” after the new Ferrari SP275 RW Competizione was revealed.

Of course this isn’t the first time that a Ferrari was made by special order. Clients who want more from a standard Ferrari can have this unique Prancing Horse with a bespoke design. Dr. Rick Workman, a dentist from Florida, actually had his initials on the SP275 sports car. That information comes from one contributor at the online forum where Ferrari Fans meet and share their latest Ferrari revelations. We also learned that it took a couple of years for Ferrari to complete the special edition model. There are no details regarding the price but we know that the Florida dentist had it delivered to his place about a week ago.

The one-off Ferrari with personalised bodyworks is actually based on the F12 Berlinetta. Dressed up in Giallo “tripolo strato” yellow with a touch of blue trims, the SP275 RW Competizione obviously borrowed its styling cues from the 275 GTB. Others would say it looks like the 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale that Preston Henn, an American entrepreneur and Ferrari collector apparently owns.

Have you ever heard of the name Kris Singh? If you’re passionate about cars, you’ve probably come across this name at some point while you scour reports about the latest and the rarest supercars to be built. Kris Singh is actually an American businessman who works as a Managing Director for Tequesta Investments, a Florida-based investment firm. His net worth? Well, let’s just say it’s roughly around $200 million dollars. Amazed already? Wait ‘til we get to the juicy bits.

He’s basically filthy rich and what exactly do rich people like him do with their excess cash? Apparently, he has a keen eye for excellent rides and has a penchant for collecting cars. He used to be one of your typical car collectors but in January 2014, he made international headlines after he purchased one of four brand new ultra-rare Lamborghini Venenos.

The car is by far the most expensive production car to date but Singh and three others were lucky enough to get their hands on it. It was required for Kris and the other owners to pay for the car in 2012 before they even got the chance to see how it looked like; they bought the car for $4.11 million and were then flown out by Lamborghini on a private jet to the 2014 Geneva show where they finally laid their eyes on the Veneno. A few weeks after the event, the cars were then delivered to their rightful owners.

The custom Rolls-Royce Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupé was designed especially for the Dubai market. This exclusive vehicle revealed at the AGMC Rolls-Royce showroom is a one-of-a-kind model and draws its inspiration from the bygone era of the Raja and in particular the glorious golden age of India.

Looking into the past, the designers examined how over a hundred years ago Indian royalty developed a unique relationship with Rolls-Royce, one which saw an unprecedented number of bespoke vehicles created. Each of which was designed to test what was possible in a Rolls-Royce and led to a partnership which saw over 800 hand-crafted vehicles from the heart of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England delivered to India.

This was a development which earned the company the 'Best Car in the World' award and its designers created an unheard of number of modifications to the style, comfort and performance of its vehicles.

The exclusive Koenigsegg One:1 was unveiled earlier this year at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and most of you folks may remember it as the mega car, the hypercar that comes with 1 megawatt of power. Only six units of this hypercar will ever be produced and one of them will be headed to the UK and will be the only One:1 in right-hand drive configuration.

As you can see from the photos, the RHD Koenigsegg One:1 features blue tinted carbon with triple layered pearlescent white stripe that highlights the design lines. For those who still don’t know, the Koenigsegg One:1 is powered by a 5.0-liter aluminum V8 engine that produces 1,314 hp (986 kW) and a staggering 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

What’s more interesting is that the car weighs 1,341 kg (1,956 lbs), which means that the hypercar has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. The engine is bolted to a 7-speed transmission and delivers the power using an electronic differential.

It’s not the first time we talk about the Ferrari SP America as the vehicle showed its sexy angles back in June. In the meantime, we found out that the vehicle created by Ferrari’s Special Projects division was commissioned by Danny Wegman a.k.a. CEO of Wegmans and he actually paid around $4 million to get his hands of this beauty.

The SP America is based on the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and is inspired by the iconic 250 GTO. In fact, if you take a better look at it you’ll see that it actually looks like a modern Ferrari 250 GTO.

There are no details about the performances of this one-off supercar, but we do know that the F12 Berlinetta is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine that generates 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque.

Ferrari released today the official details and specs of the one-off F12 TRS, that made its public debut at the Ferrari Cavalcade. Of course, the vehicle is not new to us as we revealed you plenty of photos here and here. Regarding the new car, Ferrari says that it was developed at the client’s request as an extreme, two-seater, open-top sports barchetta.

Based on the F12berlinetta, the F12 TRS is inspired by the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and was developed by Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Style Centre team.

Although several sources said that this F12 TRS carries the same KERS system found on the Laferrari, we have ‘bad news’ as it carries the same technology found on the F12berlinetta. This means a 6.3-liter V12 engine that generates 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque, that can push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.1 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 300 km/h or 186 mph.

For those who don’t know, Oscar winner Ron Howard told the story of the rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt in the movie “Rush” and if you didn’t see it you’d better go for it. A Ferrari owner was impressed by Niki Lauda and decided to personalize its 458 Italia in the same livery featured on the Maranello cars back in the golden age that covered the mid-Seventies.

Ferrari’s Commercial Department as part of the Tailor Made personalisation programme, with the collaboration of a personal designer from the Maranello Style Centre made this 458 Italia unique as it features a white roof with the Italian flag going longitudinally across it as well as gold rims.

Inside, we find seats and central tunnel reprising the Italian flag motif, while the racing theme is accentuated by the type of seats and the red motif on their stitching, the dashboard and instrument panel and the steering wheel with LEDs, as well as the F1 type gear shifts.

This is the McLaren X-1, a one-off concept built by the British manufacturer, which will make its world debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Although it appears that the car has plenty of elements borrowed from the McLaren MP4-12C, the company says that, externally, only the glasshouse is carried over from the 12C.

Regarding its dimensions, the McLaren X-1 is 4658mm long – 109mm longer than a 12C, it has a width of 2097mm (with mirrors) – an increase of 188 mm and a height of 1199mm. Kerb weight is almost identical to the MP4-12C, about 1400kg.

As expected, because it is a one-off model, all the components were tooled exclusively for the car and include head- and taillights inspired by the McLaren Speed Marque logo.
