The 458 Speciale is a higher-performance variant of the 458 Italia and is also available in a convertible model called the 458 Speciale A. The car is powered by a tuned version of the 4.5-liter V-8 rated at 597 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque that’s paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and puts the power down through the rear wheels.
Since the 458 Speciale focuses on performance, the car doesn’t have carpeting, armrests, and storage spaces. Features such as Bluetooth, stereo, navigation, a rearview camera, and parking sensors are available as extras. Despite its lack of amenities, buyers still have access to Ferrari’s extensive array of customization options. 458 Speciale extras include carbon fiber accents and spoilers, two-tone interiors, carbon fiber racing seats, and an Alcantara upholstered dashboard.
The 458 Speciale is a Special Series car produced for only 2 years by Ferrari. It is the final version of the 458 platform, and is the track-ready version of the 458 Italia, with a 200 lb weight reduction and 40 hp increase, as well as active aerodynamics.

The Heritage Edition pays homage to the winning 1966 racecar with Shadow Black paint, silver stripes, and #2 hood and door graphics. The Ford GT features a carbon fiber tub with an integrated aluminum roll cage.
Whether on the road or on the track, every single element of the Ford GT was designed to deliver the extraordinary speed and exceptional handling found only in purpose-built racing cars.

Owner: John Nepper Jr.
It’s been a decade since production of the original NSX ended. Although that car made due with a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter VTEC V-6, the all-new Acura NSX features a bespoke twin-turbo V-6 and three electric motors. The new NSX rides on an aluminum-intensive space frame with carbon fiber floor with a body designed to direct airflow over, under, and through the car including cooling duties.The NSX is hand-crafted in a 170,000 square foot “Performance Manufacturing Center” near Columbus, Ohio. Roughly 100 technicians work alongside several robotic assistants that perform 860 space-frame welds per car. From start to finish, each customer-ordered NSX is completed in two days.
With limited production, the only US-made supercar in the world is a rarely seen machine on the streets, with only a few hundred examples sold in North America since the car’s mid-2016 debut.

1970 Dodge Charger r/t
Owner: Kurt Balhorn
In 1966, Dodge introduced its 2-door, luxury, personal sport entry known as the Charger. It was based on the experimental show car (the Charger II), but shared the same chassis and running gear as the Coronet. The front fenders, hood, and doors were common. Hidden headlamps and wall-to-wall taillights were among the car’s new styling features. It also had an unusual dashboard-all major instruments were located in four hooded circles directly in front of the driver. Bucket seats were provided for the front passengers, and a full-length center console ran from the front to the back between the seats, thus making the back seats similar to buckets. These rear seats folded down to enlarge the trunk capacity. the first year it was offered only in a V-8. The base engine was the 230hp 318, but a 265hp 361 was available. Stepping up got you a 325hp 383 or the famous 425hp Hemi. The Hemi cost a hefty $500 more.
The second Charger is the Charger everyone thinks about when they think about Chargers — the car that was Steve McQueen’s ominous black nemesis in Bullitt and flew across TV screens as the orange “General Lee” on The Dukes of Hazzard. There’s a simple reason why the second-generation car has inspired so much misty-eyed affection: this is the best-looking car the Chrysler Corporation ever produced. From its bold and blunt nose, through its muscular fenders, along its square-cut hardtop roof, to the tunneled rear window and the slight flip on the trailing edge of the deck lid, this Coke bottle-shaped Charger wasn’t just beautiful — it was perfect.
1962 Chevrolet Impala SS
Owner: Duane Moffatt
Chevrolet had been in existence 46 years when the legendary Impala was majestically assembled for the first time back in 1957 for the 1958 model year. The Impala was originally introduced as a top-of-the-line Chevy Bel Air, a car that had been in rotation since the 1950 model year.
The Impala’s Super Sport option debuted in 1961, and it continued into 1962 with the sports-car assist bar, aluminum side-molding insert and SS identification. The big-block 409 CI V-8 was also introduced in 1961, and continued for 1962, with either single or two 4-barrel induction. With the dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors, aluminum intake and solid lifters, the 409 produced the magic one horsepower per cubic-inch. Essentially, the 409 was a bored-out 348, which debuted in Chevrolet’s big-body cars in 1958. However, the two engines shared few interchangeable parts, with the 409 requiring a new crankshaft, larger bearings, shorter connecting rods and forged-aluminum pistons. Chevrolet described the 1962 Impala as ‘a rare combination of qualities’ with ‘a new look of richness.’ Each Impala model had its own roofline, including the Sport Coupe with ‘exclusive convertible-contoured’ hardtop.
2002 Dodge Viper gts
Owner: Greg Mass
Top Speed: 185 MPH

2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10
The Viper first appeared as a concept at the North American International Auto Show in 1989. Public reaction was so enthusiastic that chief engineer Roy Sjoberg was directed to develop it as a standard production vehicle. Lamborghini (then owned by Chrysler Corporation) helped with the design of the V10 engine for the Viper, which was based on the Chrysler’s LA V8 engine. The first prototype was tested in January 1989. It debuted in 1991 with two pre-production models as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 and went on sale in January 1992 as the RT/10 Roadster.
The Viper’s price was pretty amazing, especially considering that the car had no exterior door handles, side windows or fixed roof. The Viper did come with a flimsy canvas roof panel and zip-in plastic windows, but these were designed more for storing the car, not to be used during high-speed runs. There were also no airbags, in the interest of weight reduction. The Viper may have been low on frills, but its impressive speed and horsepower more than made up for it.
