Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the 1978 Corvette featured an all-new fastback design, special 25th anniversary badging, and a special two-tone color scheme as an option.

Despite having a 25th anniversary edition, one of the rarest and most sought after Corvette of the year was the 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Coupe.

Chevrolet made about 6,500 pace cars in all that year which amounted to one example per dealer. In addition, only about 500 of those had the L-82 engine option backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. Low production numbers and low mileage is what makes this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car being offered at Carlisle Auctions 2021 Spring Auction so special. It is worth noting that while this car does appear to be in decent condition, it does have a rebuilt title as a result of a minor accident years ago.

Drug lord and public enemy number one Pablo Escobar loved cars perhaps even more than cash. He famously made more money than General Motors, but spent plenty of it on his automotive hobby.

Highlights of the notorious Colombian’s car collection included a 1928 Cadillac V-8 Town Sedan, just like the one owned by Al Capone, a Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman, and even a little Renault 4. However, his true passion was reserved for Porsches. A 1956 356 Speedster was said to be his favorite, and he also owned the 1978 Le Mans-winning 935, and one of just 15 911 RSRs built for the International Race of Champions in 1974.

The race saw 12 drivers from different racing disciplines drive identical 911s. Among the stars in rear-engined cars were A.J. Foyt, Richard Petty, Bobby Unser, Denis Hulme and Emmerson Fittipaldi who drove the car

Are you ready to experience a whole lot of car?

The classification of a car as a so-called “land boat” requires a few prerequisites to cement the vehicle in its certification as such. For one they are always big, extremely heavy, and have long wheelbases. However, the qualifications for these archetypes of asphalt need not all be bad. For instance, many of the big and heavy boats of yesteryear also came equipped with luxury beyond its time. This led to the term “Land Yacht” which better expresses the car’s focus on luxury and style. One of the most prolific manufacturers of these behemoths is Lincoln, they have always made quite the name for themself because of the brand’s focus on comfort and commodity.

Gold is the embodiment of style when it comes to luxury, luckily this 1979 Town Car’s interior wastes no time

1 of 8 Mercedes-Maybach 57S Coupes is up for sale, previously owned by Muammar Gaddafi

A rare Maybach 57S Coupe built for Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi is up for sale through Dutch dealer Autoleitner, with an asking price of $1.16 million.

First spotted by Motor1, the two-door Maybach is one of eight produced by coachbuilder Xenatec. When the Maybach brand was first revived in 2002, the factory only offered a single four-door sedan model in standard-wheelbase 57 and long-wheelbase 62 guises, plus sportier S versions of both. Maybach did build the gothic Exelero coupe concept, but that never went into production.

Xenatec announced its Maybach coupe project in 2010, fairly late in the car’s lifespan (production ended in 2012). The company originally planned to do 100 conversions, but only eight were completed, according to the seller.
