Gaffoglio Iacocca Ford Mustang

Forty-five years after he introduced the original Ford Mustang, launched at a dramatic press conference at the 1964 New York World's Fair, auto industry visionary Lee Iacocca today announced a new version of the famous muscle car – the Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang. Only 45 "2009½" Iacocca Silver Edition Mustangs – all painted a special "Iacocca" chosen silver hue – will be built by Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters.

Silence is golden
Golden Ferrari

Ferrari doesn’t want to publicize its Portfolio-program. But like the first, their second official Portfolio-car has now been snapped. And its gold inspiration came from a Le Mans-racer that was rebodied for a Fellini-film.
Panhard Dyna Roadster, the very last Van Rijswijk
Van Rijswijk Panhard Dyna Roadster 1950

The sweet little Roadster pictured here is a Panhard Dyna bodied by Van Rijswijk. It was the very last body the Dutch coachbuilder ever made...
Black Ferrari 250 TR sets new auction record
Record 250 TR

The Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa #0714TR, first owned by Piero Drogo, fetched €9,184,000.- during last weekend's Ferrari Leggenda e Passione event in Maranello. This is the highest amount ever paid for any car at an auction, but, unlike some media say, #0714TR is still not the most valuable car in the world. That honour still goes to another Scaglietti design: the 250 GTO.
Further more multiple Special Coachbuilt Ferraris from the Dutch Schermerhorn collection were offered. Read on to see if the other "Speciale" Ferraris got sold/not sold and for how much.
Greetings from a rainy Villa d'Este
Villa d'Este 2009

If the guests of the event enjoyed a pleasant weather on Saturday at Villa d’Este, it was not the same for the public day at Villa Erba on Saturday: grey clouds invaded the skies, the hills of lake Como vanished in a light fog and a constant rain poured all day long. Very romantic, but not an ideal weather for the cars. The tops of the dropheads remained up and the bodies didn’t glow under the sunshine. Worse, the carefully maintained and cleaned priceless cars dug mud tracks in the lawns of Villa Erba: a painful and comical scene at once. It was the same for the 2005 edition… Otherwise, the 2009 edition was a very commemorative one.
Bertone Mantide, another coachbuilt Corvette
Bertone Mantide

We wrote earlier about the Corvette C6's aluminium chassis being very suitable as a white label platform for coachbuilders to sculpt on. Bertone seemed to agree and so they took a 2009 ZR1 and turned it into this beast: the Bertone Mantide.
Novitec TuLesto: more than just another tuned F430
Novitec TuLesto

The orange monster you see here is the second coachbuilt Ferrari F430 known to man, after Fioravanti's SP1. It hasn't actually been built yet, but by presenting these 3D-renderings of the TuLesto, German Ferrari tuners Novitec attempt to promote themselves from tuner to coachbuilder.
