Ferrari F40 Crashes In Switzerland
The Ferrari F40 is such a special car and with only 1,311 of them in existence they aren’t exactly plentiful. If you’ve been privileged enough to see one in person, especially as it’s being driven hard, it’s apparent how wonderful they are. That’s why seeing one was crashed in Switzerland during a hill climb event is the equivalent to watching a unicorn get butchered in the most torturous way possible.
Elvis Movie Sparks New Interest In Vintage Caddies
Elvis has recently been in the news for the new film Elvis which premiered in Australia to the excitement of eager audience members. While many Americans have yet to see the movie, the Aussies apparently had a great time. This is backed up by the fact that the rockstar's name has been brought to the center of nearly every conversation in the nation. Whether the movie lives up to its hefty reputation or not, the man himself has become a bit of an icon in the car community. That's right, this legendary musician is known for much more than just strutting his stuff and singing while performing karate. Here's one example of the recent development in the Elvis automotive story we should all be paying attention to.
Carvana, Vroom Are In Serious Trouble
For some time, upstarts Carvana and Vroom have been transforming how thousands of Americans buy their cars.

How Much Does It Really Cost To Build A Restomod?
Many automotive enthusiasts worldwide have taken a particular interest in a growing industry that makes it easier for people to achieve their dream resto-modded car. This is the custom classic car market specializing in creating tastefully designed works of automotive art, usually with some twist on the original. Typically these cars will boast a massive V8 engine under the hood, thousands of hours in exterior and interior design, and seemingly unending attention to detail. But, of course, this work adds up to a fairly hefty price tag for both the builder and owner of the incredible vehicle. So how much does it cost to put together a fully customized classic muscle or pony car?
True Survivor: The Only 1969 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air V Test Vehicle
For the 1969 year model, Pontiac produced 697 Firebird Trans Ams, including 8 total convertibles.

1968 Hemi Charger Aims For 200-MPH
We’ve all heard some crazy stories from the Bonneville salt flats of high-octane racers traveling at ridiculous speeds. While over teams aim for acceleration at a drag strip, these drivers and builds require top speed. Even the current world land speed record of over 763 miles per hour was set in a desert, which is a good case for many enthusiasts to get into the sport. Unlike most motorsports, these racers compete against their own records, which is why they have a reputation for making history in the automotive field. This particular car was built for the incredibly high speed of 200 mph but fell short of its mark before being hidden away for decades from the public.
Rainbow Sheikh Built A Huge Hummer H1

With an estimated worth of something around $20 billion, he unlike Elon Musk likes to really flaunt it with material possessions, including some of the craziest vehicles you’ll ever see. His latest one, an oversized Hummer H1, is a perfect example.
Hertz CEO Trying To Downplay Stolen-Rental Scandal
Hertz got into a lot of trouble a few months ago when some customers complained of having been arrested or accused of grand theft auto after renting one of their cars. The Florida-based car rental company has been a staple of American travel for years but had fallen on some tough times in 2020 due to decreased traveling. Of course, you could make the case that this led to a lack of attention to detail, leading to the company's recently brought up errors. Whatever the case, a new CEO came on board to get the company back on track, and, according to Stephen M. Sherr, it may already be there.
Tom Brady Doesn't Only Collect Super Bowl Rings, Check Out His Car Collection
Retiring with the most Super Bowl wins, and then coming back, the most game-winning drives in a Super Bowl, the oldest player to win a Super Bowl, and a slew of other records and accomplishments that can only fall under one name: Tom Brady. That's not to say he's the most loved player in the game, one of Brady's accomplishments seems to be agitating sports journalists with his inability to lose. Also, it seems when you win enough, people start rooting for the 'underdog', which is basically an imaginary animal in a league that only recruits the elite, best-of-the-best players, so respect where respect is due. All of that being said, we woke up this morning wondering what the GOAT of the NFL keeps in his garage, and some digging around yielded some winning results, here are a few highlights of Tom Brady's car collection.
1967 Jaguar E-Type Le Mans By Design Velke Is A Masterpiece
Jaguar is one of those automotive companies whose reputation for building luxury cars and racers surpasses nearly every other brand on the European market.

With nearly 55 years of racing pedigree under its belt, this is a stunning sight to behold on any street, track, or car show. The car could be yours with a simple click of a button, but first, let's talk about some of its more prominent attributes.
