The Nash-Healey was advertised as the first American sportscar since the 1920s. It sold for $4,063.


This 1951 model had body panels from Britain's Panelcraft. Subsequent years used bodywork from Italy's Pinanfarina.


1970 Lancia Stratos HF Zero concept car was too low for conventional doors.




Passengers entered through the hinged windshield.


The 2002 Xeno III concept car, based on an art-student design, had nearly 10 years of trial-and-error development before manufacture by So-Cal Speed Shop.




The 1957 Teverbaugh-Kirkland Bonneville Special ran the D Modified class and was the first to use a parachute in addition to aircraft brakes. It was later updated for vintage racing.

The Batman TV show used this Harley-Davidson with sidecar. The 1966 movie used a Yamaha with detachable go-cart.


The 1921 Neracar was designed to be as "carlike" as possible. It had a 283cc 2-stroke engine with a friction drive, and a steering hub making it not very maneuverable.


The 3rd season of the Batman TV show replaced Julie Newmar and her Cat-illac with Eartha Kitt and this catmobile version of Gene Winfield's "Reactor" showcar.




In the early 60s, Marbon Chemicals, a plastics maker, sold the rights to their concept design to AMT, a plastic model manufacturer. They hired famed showcar builder Gene Winfield to build a full-sized vehicle, and he convinced NBC to use it in their Man From UNCLE TV show.


A replica of the Alligator from Death Race 2000, driven by David Carradine. In the movie, drivers got points for taking out pedestrians. It's based on a 1972 Shaka Vet.

Based on a 1977 Olds Cutlass Supreme, this is a Year 2043 Omni Consumer Products Sux 6000 from Robocop.


This is the prototype of the car in Back to the Future II. In the movie, it used fusion booster thrusters. In reality, a forklift was used to simulate takeoff and landing.


2002 Jaguar XJS from Die Another Day. For the driving-on-ice chase scene, the cars were rebuilt on a shortened Ford Explorer chassis for better handling.


Only 7 of the street-legal version of the Ford GT40 race car were built. Tweaks included a softer suspension, more comfortable interior, and a lengthened rear for trunk space.


1962 Studebaker Avanti R-2 was designed in just 40 days. It sold for $4,445 with a 4-speed tranny, twin traction-control, and heavy-duty suspension.


1914 Chevrolet Royal Mail Roadster was the first to use the "bowtie" emblem. It helped lead Chevrolet out of near-bankruptcy.


This 2003 G-Force GF023 has cut-aways to show internal structures.






1952 VW Type 2 Deluxe Microbus was simple and cheap, much desired by the surf crowd. It has 23 windows and a sunroof.

1964 Meyers Manx dune buggy was based on the VW Beetle. About 7,000 were built over the years.


Jackson Storm from the movie Cars 3. At Copper Canyon Speedway, it passed Lightning McQueen on the last lap to take the win.


The 2014 Volkswagen XL Sport uses a Superquadro engine from its Ducati division to blend performance and efficiency.


The 2018 Volkswagen ID.R all-electric vehicle broke all the big speed records.




2018 Volkwagen ID.Vizzion concept car has autonomous-driving features.


Faraday Future FF Zero 1 has an electric motor at each wheel, and a modular construction allowing an adjustable wheelbase and various battery layouts.


Faraday Future was named after Michael Faraday, who developed the electric generator in 1831.

1962 Shelby Cobra is American V-8 power in a British roadster. This one is the only Cobra to compete in the Tour de France.


This 1960 Chevrolet Corvette finished 1st in class and 8th overall at LeMans in 1960, despite having no official factory support.


This 1957 Testa Rossa is one of only two built with a Tipo 625 Grand Prix racing engine. It had 11 wins in 1957.


In a later restoration the race engine was exchanged for the 250 Testa Rossa V-12.






A fuel belly tank from a P-38 Lightning was the basis for this 1952 Bonneville racer, which broke 5 class records in its first year.




The 1982 Greer-Black-Prudhomme dragster was state-of-the-art in its day, with consistent 1/4-mile times under eight seconds and speeds over 190mph. The Top Fueler had 237 wins and 4 losses.

Mondial traditionally built fast motorcycles and had 5 Grand Prix wins through 1957. In the 60s and 70s, they focussed less on the exotics and produced this 1970 Lady Nova, part of a tradition of "Ladies Model" motorcycles dating back to the teens and Suffragettes.
