The Barchetta was a convertible version of the standard Ferrari 550, unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2000. Along with classic Italian styling, this car has been tastefully updated with black leather, red brake calibers, roll bar upholstery, large carbon fiber racing seats, and more.

1930 Cord L-29

This Cord L-29 has an eye-catching lavender paint job. Completely restored, it seems as if this car is flawless. The dynamic, swoopy styling of this car is incredible, and quite unique. These cars were initially powered by Auburn’s 4.9L inline-8 engine, producing around 125 hp.
