Concepts, one offs and prototypes
Porsche c88 Chinese econobox
I've posted this picture so many times over the last ~4 years, still my favorite concept of all time
>>27205954I'm confused. Does that not look exactly like a miura?
>>27206067That looks super fun/unsafe.
>>27205949>Concepts, one offs and prototypes1 of 1 Testarossa Spider, the only one built by Ferrari
1 of 1 Ferrari P4/5Enzo underpinnings
1 of 1 Miura Roadster
1 of 1 993 SpeedsterJerry Seinfeld liked it so much he commissioned Porsche to convert his regular 993 into a Speedster as well, so there are kind of 2
1 of 1 964 America GS Hardtop Roadstershocking lack of info about this car
1 of 1 911 GT1 '98 Strassenversion
1 of 1 Ferrari SP38
1 of 1 SSC Ultimate Aero XT

>>27206165i loved this car so much in NFS 2, imagine my disappointment finding that it was not a proper production car and i would never see one>>27206142this one was shit in the game and i knew it was a one off because i had a book about lamborghinis. but now i think this is the hot shit that i want to drive. i remember thinking it was so cool that it had six whole gears.
>>27206165wow that is atrociousdisgusting 928 headlights and rearview mirror tumor sticking out of the roof lol
>>27206120bro what the HELL is that center break light
>>27206152damn, that rear wing swooping into the bodywork is funky af
>>27206165There's a second example that was built from parts and a leftover frame. The builder just had a falling out with Isdera's founder because he made some improvements, so Isdera insists there's just one.But that company was always a bit off, they also had problems with Daimler because they wouldn't stop putting that badge on their cars for a while
>>27206095>The factory officially made only one Testarossa Spider and that was for Gianni Agnelli, but five were sold to Brunei. Likewise, no 512 Spiders were made, but six again made it to Brunei.Fucking oil sheik faggot has a personal hotline to Enzo Ferrari himself just to put 5 beautiful priceless cars into a dusty barn somewhere in the desert
>>27206121Now you are just making shit up. 25 of these were made
>>27206139To be fair, Pagani made ultra-rare, ultra-special, ultra-final version of the Zonda for about 8 years. Top Gear made a joke about this, the "Model Variants" list on Wikipedia is half the article
>>27206566>dustyworse than that, Humid and mouldy.no doubt the interior trims are wrecked.
>>27206584>>27206566Why doesn't he just open a museum or a race track? Sure he doesn't need the income but if he really loved cars so much he wouldn't condemn so many of them to a pathetic end. Driving around a track cannot be worse than sitting in a moldy garage
>>27206584That and every single rubber part on the car is DEDEach of these would need a full restauration to drive again
>>27206602>if he really loved cars so muchhe doesn't love cars, what are you talking about man?clearly if they're all falling into disrepair like your pic suggests then he doesn't care about cars at allif anything, he buys cars simply because he has an addiction to buying expensive toyshe nearly bankrupted his entire family with this you know
>>27206567They made 2 993 gt1 road cars25 996 road carsAnd 1 98 gt1 road car
>>27205949>Ferrari made a V12 wagon before BMW and Mercedes
>>27206670I stand corrected, I just looked up "911 GT1" and read the first result because I wanted to say something knowledgable
>>27206602Most of the cars were acquired through funds officially earmarked for other purposes. You might see some stiff expressions if you come driving in a new Ferrari and a new American prostitute beside you every day but the children’s hospital never seems to be completed.But then again, you can always establish sharia law when things start to go south.
>>27206602>>27206584>>27206566Brunei is in South Asia, it's a small city-state on the same island as Indonesia, the entire economy revolves around the vast oil reserves there like the Arab micronations of Bahrain and Qatar. It wasn't the Sultan himself, but rather his brother using the Sultan's funds. The way Brunei ran is that the State's funds are functionally the Sultan's personal bank account, basically a giant Company Town ran by the Sultan and his family. The Sultan's brother was the 'finance minister' of Brunei in the 80s and 90s, which basically meant he had direct and unmoderated access to state funds which he used to invest the national finances in shell companies overseas to then filter into his own pockets, using luxury goods like cars to hide the embezzlement scam. He didn't know or care about these cars at all, he bought nearly all of his 400+ car collection over a period of about three years purely to hide his money from the courts, and the vast majority of them are identical Mercedes S classes that have never been driven once, but just left to sit in unconditioned warehouses where they rotted away. Even the exotics like his custom Lambos and Ferraris were commissioned as vanity projects that he never used and probably never even saw in person.
>>27205949i really like the ferd mazda probe mustang trans am
>>27206566am I retarded? how were none made, but also 6 were sold?
>>27206120>America GS Hardtop RoadsterAre you sure that's a factory car?I think I found a rennlist thread on it and I see a bunch of modern shit done to it. Never heard of this thing before.https://rennlist.com/forums/964-forum/493604-america-gs-consolidated-thread.html
>>27206840They officially weren't made and sold, just handbuilt for the Sultan
>>27205968It may look a little miura-ish, but it's clearly modeled on the c3 corvette.
>>27206165Looks like it was designed for an anime, but in a good way. Absolute kino
>>27206566>>27206602>>27206656>>27206751>Compulsive buying disorder (CBD) is characterized by an obsession with shopping and buying behavior that causes adverse consequences. It "is experienced as a reoccurring, compelling and irresistible–uncontrollable urge, in acquiring goods that lack practical utility and very low cost resulting in excessive, expensive and time-consuming retail activity [that is] typically prompted by negative affectivity" and results in "gross social, personal and/or financial difficulties". Most people with CBD meet the criteria for a personality disorder.>Unlike normal consumers and hoarders, who derive excitement and focus on the items purchased, compulsive buyers gain excitement and focus on the acquisition process itself and not the item purchased
Does it count if they made 2?
>>27209674>two Kawasaki 6cyl put together>in a car barely bigger than an old Minishut up and take my money
>>27209655What is this supposed to be? Looks like a normal Passat or Jetta

>>27209632>Muh DSMGo take another booster faggot
>>27212705>>27209655Lmao I didn't know this was a thing
>came here to say Alfa Romeo SZ>discover they made a thousand of them>not enough to be affordable (€100k in pastaland), enough to not be a one offNevermind. No picture because Hiroshimoot hates my ISP.
>>27212716>anon wants a Sprint ZagatoI gazed upon your eyes and knew you were my negro
Chad transmission expert builds his car around a 27 liter aero/tank engine to cruise at 200 mph in the german autobahn while motoring journalist is at loss for words at the idea of a car with 700hp.https://youtu.be/NBVoO61a3f0?si=ydAq5eK4Y5UfaMIUBest part is that the car in the picture still exists today, albeit heavily modified, and that his original builder was driving it well into his 80's.https://youtu.be/snP0Qx3AX0c?si=0ziUl2_dys292r2W
x1/9 abarth prototipo, supposedly 5 made + 1 stradale
>>27209023>getting jabbed by the corner of that every time you get in or outhow can a designer sit back and look at that and think,,... "oh yeah, this is looking good."
>>27213058>this was rejected so the 131 could flynever been happier of this kind of outcome
two or three road legal ones exist each with unique styling
>>27213286>all built in the brief Monaco phase>all owned by Monegasque people>ALL OF THEM HAVE MONACO PLATES>while having a V12 sourced from fucking VW
>>27213341There was one for sale recently with very good pictures. Extremely interesting and absurd carhttps://schaltkulisse.com/car/bugatti-eb-112/
>>27213261You mean the stratos was retired so the 131 would sell cars, otherwise they would be forced to use the x1/9 to be competitive.
>>27213371And as we all know the black EB112 was once owned by Gildo Pallanca Pastor. His mother Hélène Pastor, Monaco’s richest woman.
>>27213261sadly the same fate awaited the rally aydubs
>>27213499to be fair the Stratos was fucking destroying everyone
>>27213580the guy is also Venturi's current owner and the reason it became a fucking mockery of the beautiful French TVR it used to beand the EB110 and EB112 were made during the brief time Bugatti was owned by him
>>27213701>>27213936Group S was too far but god dammit I would fuck the Lancia ECV's powertrain, thing is absolute SEXO
>>27213970More like triFUCKS
>>27209647Ever looked closely at the welds these krauts laid on their competition cars? Really makes you think
>>27214118Didn't the BMW engineers take the block for the M12 engine outside and started pissing on it? I assumed everyone knew the Germans were crazy.
well technically it was in production but not for long, and not succesfully. i would like one of these goofy early hybrids.
>>27216983I miss wheel spats
