2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring

Known for its 0–60 mph time of 3.6 seconds or less, the Lexus LFA is any supercar fan’s dream. This is the LFA Nürburgring Edition in Sunset Orange, a 2-seat supercar.

It is one of only 50 LFA Nürburgring cars ever built. It has been on display in the Balise Lexus showroom since July 2012. Only driven by dealership personnel, it has 1,603 actual miles. Development on the original LFA concept began in the early 2000s, and the final car, Read More

1967 Lotus 47 GT-015 Group 4 Coupe

By the mid-1960s, Colin Chapman’s boundless energy had produced no less than 36 distinctive Lotus automobiles. But the entrepreneurial engineer still yearned to build an inexpensive mid-engine production car with a race version for Team Lotus — and for sale to privateers. Thus the Type 46, or Europa, was revealed in 1965. Built around a box-section central spine chassis, John Frayling’s fiberglass bodywork was bonded to the chassis to form an exceptionally stiff monocoque structure. Crucially, the Europa was low Read More

1982 Ferrari 400i

Ferrari produced only 421 manual-gearbox 400s during the model’s 1979 to 1984 run. This makes the version highly desirable.

The one offered is even more so as it only ever had one owner. A few years after buying this car, the owner bought a V12 that was more adapted to his needs: a BMW 750. This 400i was only occasionally driven, with just 21,300 km (13,235 miles) from new. It is in strict original condition. It was never repainted and Read More

1959 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible

The 1959 DeSoto Adventurer convertible was powered by a high-performance 383-ci V8 engine offering 350 horsepower with dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors in tandem.

The car has a push-button-operated TorqueFlite automatic transmission. This Adventurer has a dizzying array of features, including power brakes; power steering; power windows; a power-operated, swiveling driver’s bucket seat; and a power-operated convertible top.

An AM radio, clock, padded dash and unique Adventurer-specific upholstery round out the interior package. The exterior is complemented by a set Read More

A Rough Road for Self-Driving Cars

Should we cut to the chase and just call them self-crashing cars?

Uber got a lot of unwanted attention on April 1, 2018, when one of its self-driving Volvo XC90s on a road test fatally struck a pedestrian in Tempe, AZ.

Elaine Herzberg, 49, was walking her bicycle across Mill Avenue about 10 p.m. when the Volvo, traveling a reported 38 miles per hour, struck her. Herzberg was crossing mid-block, not within a crosswalk. She was still alive when rescue Read More

SCM’s Endless Summer

Imagine 40 classic cars — many of them Alfas — hitting redline as they climb to historic Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood. Or after a day cruising the wide-open landscapes off Highway 97 past Fort Rock, gathering again to drive around crystal-clear Crater Lake.

We’re just a couple of months away from the Sports Car Market 30th Anniversary tour. All 40 positions sold out quickly, but there is room on the waiting list (www.sportscarmarket.com/anniversarytour).

We’ve already starting putting the Read More

Tempting Turbos

Visit any of the U.K.’s regional classic-car auctions, and you’ll almost always encounter at least one big Bentley or Rolls-Royce of the 1980s and 1990s — invariably with an affordable-looking price estimate.

These imposing — if slabby-sided — automobiles are some of the last cars to be hand-built before the Rolls-Royce/Bentley split and sale into German ownership. They are all powered by Rolls-Royce’s Cadillac-like 6,750-cc pushrod V8, but that wasn’t all that was carried over from the preceding model, for Read More

1956 Lotus Eleven Le Mans Series I

The present owner of this shining Lotus Eleven is no stranger to the type, having owned and raced another Eleven.

Keen to add to his Lotus collection, he found another Eleven in the U.K., though it had been badly crashed — when and by whom is unknown. This car’s long recovery to health began in the early 1980s and included a completely new body from Williams and Pritchard. While most of the damaged panels were discarded, the owner retained the Read More

1984 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16

This Peugeot remains in thoroughly original condition and now shows 48,000 km (29,825 miles) on the odometer. It wears its original gray metallic paint and its original two-tone gray leather and Alcantara interior, both of which remain in superb condition with only the most minor signs of use.

With red-edged charcoal carpet, red accents throughout, and of course, the proper 5-speed gearbox, this exceptional car both looks and performs like the racing legend it is. It is offered with its Read More

1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

The 560SL offered here is truly exceptional. It has been driven just 2,950 original miles and is offered in a highly desirable color scheme of Blue Green Metallic over Cream Beige leather interior.

Included with the sale is the iconic pagoda-style removable hard top, in matching Blue Green Metallic. The owner notes that the black soft convertible top has never been put up other than for inspection. The seats have always been covered since new, ensuring that they both remain Read More
