    Imagine the year is 1996. You've just acquired a new car. You're the proud new owner of a Mercedes-Benz SL500.

  • 2017 Porsche 911 R leaked
    Porsche 911 R offered on eBay for $1.25 million

    We know the Porsche market is hot right now, but the $1.25 million asking price for a brand new 911 R that hasn't even been built yet might be a little on the excessive side.

  • 1957 Bugatti 57SC Sports Tourer by Vanden Plas

    Bugatti's 57 model range is about as desirable as an antique car comes, but this particular 57SC Sports Tourer may take the cake after it sold for nearly $10 million at auction last weekend. The 57SC crossed the block at Bonhams' auction on the sidelines of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, where the auctioneer called it the most valuable Bugatti ever. ALSO SEE: Ferrari 250 GT California sells for $17 million at Amelia Island auction That's a rather misleading claim, however, since a 1931 Bugatti Royale held the record for the most valuable car ever for many years after being sold by...
