Live the Super ’70s in a Ferrari 208 GT4

The Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 is a unique car. Overshadowed by its bigger brother, the 308 GT4, the 208 was originally created to skirt under the Italian tax levied on engines above two liters. What the 208 GT4 lacks in displacement it makes up for in sound and style.

For Bradley Price, designer and owner of Autodromo, the opportunity to acquire a practical “super car” of the ’70s with its famous wedge styling was too hard to ignore. After a year of ownership, Bradley can consistently be found escaping the city and revving the sweet-sounding V8 along the roads and hills of New York.

Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated

Recreating a factory race car from the 1960s is no simple task—for Jason Len and his 1964 Jaguar E-Type, the challenges were no different.

The hours and materials to build something of this magnitude far exceed any dollar amount that could be recouped from the finished car’s sale, but this is irrelevant for Jason.

To him, the idea of owning and recreating this car is simply about chasing a dream. He devoted his life to Jaguars, so when it came to deciding whether or not to build the car, there was no other choice that could be made.

Beyond its glorious engine notes and inspiring visual presence, this car enjoys something that very few cars are allowed: a furiously fast pilot. After purchasing this car over 30 years ago, this E-type has never looked—or driven—better.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Wagon vs. Icon Derelict! [Head 2 Head Episode 41]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, certified wagon-freak Jonny Lieberman pits two of the very coolest station wagons in the world against each other.

More than just cool, these are also two of the rarest wagons on earth. In fact, the E63 AMG Wagon is the rarest car Mercedes sells in the U.S. It’s special order only through the dealer — it’s not even on their website. Of course, the Icon Derelict is its own form of rare, being one of one.

The Derelict started life out back in 1952 as a Chrysler Town & Country Custom Wagon, but things have changed. As for the E63 Wagon, we learned at Best Driver’s Car that the stealthy Mercedes is quicker than several supercars. But does it have what it takes to defeat Icon’s icon? Watch and find out!
