  • Presented in Rosso Corsa over Tan leather. An outstanding example of a rare and sought after model. The Ferrari Boxer was never made for the American market. Enzo figures his 8 cylinder cars like the 308 would suffice because at the time the US had a 55mph speed limit. This particular example has been both restored and thoughtfully upgraded in our service center by Wade, who is our outstanding certified master Ferrari technician, to be more road friendly.
  • A true 30+ year barn find. One of only 809 examples produced. The 365 GT 2+2 was presented at the Paris Salon in 1967, and it was the biggest and most luxurious Ferrari model to date, conveying forward the developing interest for faster vehicles with convenience for up to four travelers. Its low-thrown fastback configuration was made and built by Pininfarina

  • The Ferrari Testarossa’s bodywork shows exotic and muscular features, with a mid-mounted 180-degree 4.9-liter engine with Bosch K-Jetronic electronic fuel injection and four valves per cylinder supplying 390 hp, making the Testarossa the world`s most powerful sports car at the time. It produced a blistering performance and was the fastest production car when released. With acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just over 5.0 seconds, the 1/4 mile in just 12.9 seconds, and a top speed of nearly 180 mph. Production ran for 11 years and ended in 1995.
  • The Testarossa was introduced in 1984 at the Paris Auto Show. It addressed some of the design flaws inherent in the BB 512i one of which is the uncomfortably hot cabin.  This problem was traced to the indoor piping that connects the rear-located engine to the radiator located at the front of the car. To address this, two radiators were built near the engine on each side of the car thus eliminating the need for cabin-routed piping. However, the radiator intakes on the sides were covered with strakes also called “cheese graters” in conformation to design regulations. 
  • The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (C199 / R199 / Z199) is a grand tourer co-developed by German car maker Mercedes-Benz and British car maker McLaren Automotive and was sold from 2003 to 2009. When the car was developed, Mercedes-Benz owned 40% of the McLaren Group and the car was manufactured jointly by the two companies. SLR stands for “Sport Leicht Rennsport” (Sport Light Racing) and is a homage to the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR which served as the car`s inspiration. The car was offered in coupe, roadster, and speedster body styles, the latter being a limited edition.
 

  • In 1968, shortly after Citroën took a controlling interest in Maserati, the concept of a mid-engine two-seat sports car was introduced in order to stay competitive with Lamborghini and Ferrari. Dubbed the Bora, this new model debuted in March of 1971 at the Geneva Auto Salon. Coachwork was provided by Italdesign’s Giorgetto to create the Bora’s sleek “wedge-style. Its robust V-8 engine—first displacing 4.7 liters and later enlarged to 4.9 liters—acquire from Maserati’s Birdcage Tipo 63–65 race cars. Reportedly only 275 4.9-liter examples of the Maserati Bora were produced. This 1975 Maserati Bora has numbers-matching engine, confirmed by Maserati Classiche Accompanied by manuals and factory documentation. 
  • This terrific 308 GTS example is finished in the ultra-rare Rosso Corsa Red with Black Boxer trim. Only 22k original miles and Classiche Certified.

  • Based on the sophisticated mid-engine design and unique styling, makes the Acura NSX popular with sports car enthusiasts. Acura has made many styling enhancements to the 2002 NSX that give it a more modern and high-performance look. All ’02 NSXs feature a removable roof panel as standard equipment for open-air driving. Combining suspension upgrades with new headlights, these changes not only improve the look of the NSX, but also improve aerodynamics and increase its already impressive performance. 
  • When the Acura NSX debuted in the early 1990s, it was welcomed as a revolutionary car. The NSX was far more affordable than many of its competitors, but manufacturers didn’t downplay the equipment and technology used in production. This initiative had a lot of potential for success. Pininfarina’s iconic graceful design, Honda’s sophisticated engine technology, compact body, and the combination co-developed by F1 star Ariton Sena were a combination for success.

  • The 964-based Speedster was the 1994 Speedster based on the 964 Carrera 2 platform. Production of the 1994 Speedster reportedly totaled only around 936 units, less than half as many as the 1989 example. The 1989 Speedster was primarily an aesthetic package, the 964 version sought a happy medium between the regular Carrera 2 and the hardcore Carrera RS. It had the same engine as the base Carrera and didn’t have the same suspension bits as the RS, but thanks to a removable windshield and an interior stripped of all niceties, it fits the role of driver’s car rather neatly.
  • The first Porsche 911 Speedster was built in 1989 and was the last vehicle with an old 911 body. Inspired by the concept of the 911 Speedster from 1985, Porsche decided to create a production Speedster. Launched in the 1989 model, the 25th anniversary of the 911, it had the direct design attributes of a 356 Speedster, including a scooped windshield, a two-seat configuration, and a roll-away top neatly stored under the double. You can store the bubble stern cover. The car was available in a narrow or turbo wide body look, with the latter outselling the former by a huge margin.

  • Just like the original 911, the 911 50th Anniversary Edition is a rear-wheel drive, flat-six rear-engine coup.

This special edition is limited to 1963 cars, a number that represents the year of the 911 world premiere.

  • The Mercedes AMG G65 is effortlessly cool simply for being what it is, an old-school player in a new-school world. The G65’s powertrain is impressive, with a 621hp 6.0-L twin-turbo V12 engine. It comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission that shifts quickly and doesn’t feel clunky.  The interior of the G65, as well as the exterior, is an exercise of military-spec utilitarianism dipped in luxury.
