Interesting news out of New Zealand—it appears a portion of the Sultan of Brunei's extensive car collection may be up for sale. A total of 30 cars are on the block; the vast majority are Ferraris, but there are three Lamborghinis, two Porsches and a handful of other, more rare exotics there as well. All the cars are in mint condition; however, they're all right-hand-drive, making them significantly less appealing to those of us in the U.S. And most of the rest of the world.
BMW revealed this week what their don't blog about this website was hiding all along—a production-ready version of their Vision EfficientDynamics concept car. Little was revealed about the car beyond that it would be coming to life sometime in the near future, but judging by the context BMW set the announcement in, we imagine the car will probably make around 330 horsepower from its plug-in hybrid powertrain. Styling has barely changed over the concept car, which should greatly please Bimmerphiles sick of blending into the crowd at their Phillips Exeter class reunions.
La belle du mondial de l'automobile à Paris, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento concept car, may soon be headed to production as well—but in extremely limited numbers. We've heard somewhere between seven and 10 units will be built if the car maker chooses to build the concept, each at a price of around $3.4 million. Lamborghini reportedly has five secure orders already, so between two and five slots remain for any auto-crazy millionaires who hate parking next to an identical car at their Illuminati meetings.
But wait, there's more! Be sure to check out:
