One of the very best James Bond movies ever made was The Spy Who Loved Me starring Roger Moore as the intrepid 007. Part of what made the film so great were the underwater scenes involving the 1977 Lotus Esprit Submarine, and now, thanks to the fine folks at RM Auctions, you have a chance to own it. The filmmakers originally had six shells commissioned for shooting, but only one of those was outfitted with sub capabilities. This is that one. The auction goes down in September. Unfortunately, we don’t think our $20 bid is going to make it to Read More
The Lamborghini Egoista does it all. Goes really fast, helps you to avoid the watchful and prying eyes of police, and takes many of its design cues from the military-grade Apache helicopter. There’s only one little problem. It’s just a concept. And considering the market for this type of car would be very, very small, we’re thinking it’ll stay that way for quite some time. However, what better way is there to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the snootiest-with-good-reason car companies in existence? This concept features 600 horses to help you do the job right on a V10 Read More
The Porsche 2014 911 Turbo is a brand new baddie from top-of-the-line German engineering. While boasting the same power that you have come to expect from the auto giants, this model has a few bonus features we think you’re going to like. For starters, there is the extra long chassis and LED lighting. Then, you’ve got the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control anti-roll system and shiny 20-inch wheels. Put it all together, and you’ve got a gorgeous little monster that can do 200 miles per hour for a top speed and hit 0 to 60 in under three seconds. The S Read More
We wouldn’t even be saying anything about this little number if that dirty rotten Seinfeld hadn’t recently turned up on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee driving one. While the ol’ price guide isn’t handy right now, we’re thinking it’s probable you’d need a Seinfeld-sized salary to get your hands around the steering wheel of this one. The 1969 Lamborghini Miura S was easily one of the finest looking cars ever made. The Miura line ended in the early 1970s, but it has remained a favorite of collectors, and you can still find some darn good ones out there on the Read More
The cops are going to have one heck of a time playing catch-up when you speed past them in the Ferrari LaFerrari, a super-car that boasts 949 horsepower and 0 to 62 capabilities in less than three seconds. If that isn’t enough speed for you, the 6.3 liter, V12 engine and the seven-speed DCT gearbox combine with the HY-KERS drivetrain system to produce 0 to 124mph speeds in less than seven seconds and a max of 205mph. This is one of those cars where the last thing the company wants you to know is the price, and this fact will Read More
The Casey Putsch Turbine Powered Bat Car will make every Batman dream you’ve ever had come true. Firstly, it allows you to role-play as the Caped Crusader. Secondly, it will help you pick up a lot more (cat)women than you’re probably accustomed to. (Hello, Mr. Millionaire Playboy.) And lastly, it will bring you face-to-face with your Gotham City’s seedier element, as every carjacker in town will likely want it for their own. It does it with a 365-horsepower turboshaft engine from Boeing, adjustable suspension with disc brakes, a sturdy chassis of steel tubular space/monocoque and a combo of fiberglass and Read More
Scroll back through our archives, and you’ll see that inStash has long had a love affair with the Aston Martin. Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet, as they say. With the Aston Martin Vanquish, the company popularized by a certain secret agent’s driving preferences has won our hearts forever. How did they do it? For starters, they placed a 5.9-liter V12 engine under the hood. This monster boasts about 565 horsepower and brings 457 lb-ft of torque to the table. Secondly, well, they just flat made a beautiful ride, particularly with that carbon fiber skirt which adds a touch of Read More
The replacement of the McLaren F1 is near, and from everything we’re hearing, it won’t disappoint. The McLaren P1 is being called a “design study,” but what you see here is supposedly going to be pretty close to what you can expect going on sale sometime within the next 12 months. We don’t have any official specs, other than McLaren’s official statement, promising to be ”the best driver’s car in the world on road and track.” But we do, of course, have rumors… claiming the P1 will feature a 3.8-liter V8 producing 803 horsepower matched to a 160 horsepower KERS system.
