Zagato’s latest coachbuilt special is a V-8-powered GT called the Mostro, Italian for “Monster”. It’s been built to both celebrate Maserati’s centenary as well as honor the original Maserati 450 S Coupe Zagato race car that Sir Stirling Moss drove in the 1957 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Before his passing in early 2012, Carroll Shelby and his team at Shelby American built a one-off Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake Need for Speed Edition that was to be sold for charity. It was Shelby’s last specialty car, and it can now be yours as the auction of it is finally going ahead.

Audi currently offers 52 distinct vehicles but plans to boost this to 60 by the end of the decade. Some new additions will be three high-riding models including a Q8 full-size SUV, which Audi has confirmed for 2019.

You’ll find all of these stories and more in today’s car news, right here at Motor Authority.
