Cool, Awesome & Amazing Custom/One-off/Prototype Cars

Why aren't these a thing. They need to exist more. So retro-future.

It's still around. It was called the 1961 Ford Mustang Avventura Avanti Allegro Concept.











Ah, this beauty. The Mercedes-Benz C111 Concept.

I may not know much about this car but it's one car I know in one particular game: Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense.


Holy crap. This...oh my... a Mercedes-Benz 500K.

Well considering it was posted up on the registry for King Cobra's last I knew.

Apparently this was offered with the 429 CJ/SCJ, Boss 429 or 460 Max Wedge engines....
A Ford Max Wedge? The only engines I've ever heard designated Max Wedge were the 413 and 426 race motors from Mopar in 1962-64.

They had those types of combustion chambers on certain engines in the early years, you just don't hear people refer to them as such.
Yeah, I know others had similar combustion chamber shape, but only Mopar officially anything a Max Wedge. I think you using the word "max" is what derailed my brain. :P
It's never "officially" been referred to as such, only by enthusiasts. :)
TVR SM 'Zante' sports estate prototype


Based on a TVR 2500 chassis, it appeared at the 1971 New York Motorshow and the British show in '72 before being test driven around the US for a few months. Apparently it wasn't fit enough for road use and due to predicted high development costs, the car was disassembled and body was shipped to the UK. Left to rust in TVR's Blackpool factory yard.


It did appear again at an exhibition organised by the TVR Car Club Germany 5 years ago before it was sold soon after (presumably in the UK). No idea what happened to it after that.


Triumph Lynx

A project 2+2 fastback made by Triumph. It had the Rover V8 engine, using some
components of the Rover SD1. Other than that, it was just a prototype TR6 with a new body.

However, the project was abandoned, and the factory making British Leyland cars closed.

Ferrerai F50 Bolide

How does one upgrade the ridiculously insane Ferrari F50? Well, if you are the Sultan of Brunei, you sink a ton of cash into a stupidly awesome redesign. Next to nothing is known about the ultra-secretive Bolide project. However, based on the very few pictures that exist, it appears that the car was completely transformed. In fact, it seems clear that a completely different body shell was fitted to stock F50 internals. Alas, we'll probably never know. It is forever entombed in the vast warehouses of the Sultan's palace.


Ferrari GG50

Most dudes get a bottle of Johnny Walker and a case of frozen steaks for putting in 50 years at a company. This wasn't the case for auto design legend, Giorgetto Giugiaro. To commemorate his half-century of work with Ferrari, top brass assigned him a special project. Utilizing the manufacturing capabilities of the Ferrari factory, his task was to create a one-of-a-kind supercar for himself.

The resulting car was the cleverly titled, GG50. Hand-formed using a 612 platform and boasting a 540 HP V12, it's an intoxicating blend of classic Ferrari design cues and futuristic whimsy. After hitting the auto show circuit in 2005, the GG50 was returned to Turin, Italy, where it remains today, in full working order as part of Giugiaro's extensive automotive stable.


Ferrerai P4/5

Built by Pininfarina over a 2003 Ferrari Enzo, the P4/5 is a meteoric achievement in modern automotive design. It was commissioned by hedge fund manager and collector extraordinaire, Jim Glickenhaus, as part of a project to build a one-off car that would pay homage to his classic 1967 Ferrari 330 P 3/4. The completed car, which debuted at Pebble Beach in 2006, was met with great fanfare from the Ferrari community and remains one of the most eye-catching cars of all time. Oh, what did it cost, you ask? About $4 million.

This S15 Varietta looks nice. And it's not a demo car of a ricing shop or something. In fact, it was made without any involvement of a ricing shop. Sadly the intercooler and the burnt mark on the surge pipe is both fake.
Literally Google searching 1960's Chargers. Came up in one of the image searches.
I found this too.

And built for an american client. Ferrari honestly, nailed that one.

Also, I was trying to the same as you, @Slash and somehow, I found this. Not sure if questionable or not. What. The. ****.
