One thing about the Porsche Carrera GT is that it makes no apologies. There is no additional single clutch gearbox for people who want to just scoot around, no soft comfort seats, and certainly, nothing to save you when things get hairy. It is pure take it or leave it and if you are brave enough, you can find out what the limit really is in one of these. I think that is one part of why these have shot up in value like crazy as there certainly will never be another car like the Carrera GT. Today’s car, a Guards Red example up for sale in California, certainly brings one of those crazy price tags but also a fair amount of miles for one of these.
The Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG not only holds the crown for the most amount of three letter-monikers in the model name, but also that of the craziest bodywork that you can’t believe is factory. I don’t want to re-cap everything, but if you want to re-read my post about this model from way back in 2016, feel free. As mentioned, these are extremely rare and qualify to be imported to the United States under a â€œshow or displayâ€ exemption at a heavy cost, but it is doable. As the price of this one up for sale in The Netherlands proves, you can probably swing it for you are able to write a check this size.

This is it. This is the big one – literally. The Maybach 62 rings in with a 150-inch wheelbase and a total length of over 242 inches. Single parking spaces need not apply. Starting price? Over $400,000. You can see where I am going with this one. This was a car bought by those who would never drive it. Still, today if you buy one of these to actually drive, you are out of your mind. However, now that these are old enough to legally buy cigarettes? It might not be a bad idea. Well, maybe it’s not a bad idea…
