The car: 1983 Audi Turbo Quattro Coupe

Price: $48,900

Location: Mt Kisco, New York

Fresh from a recent service and out of an Audi mechanic’s long-term care, this 1983 Audi Quattro Coupe, known as the ‘Ur-’Quattro, is legendary for its all-weather performance and sharp handling. With tasteful upgrades, this example should be quicker than most and, yes, probably worth its asking price—these rare machines are becoming more valuable every day.

The car:  1963 BMW 3200CS Coupe

Price: Inquire

Location: Brummen, Netherlands

Not familiar with this BMW? That’s not surprising—few are. As a result, they’re undervalued compared to Italian or other German cars of the same vintage. With Bertone bodywork and a V8 engine related to the one fitted to the 507 roadster, it’s a subtly quick and pretty grand touring car with few compromises. 

The car:  2006 Jaguar XJR-15 LM

Price: POA

Location: Henley, UK

Yes, this really is the Jaguar Sport XJR-15, which is actually just a road car version of the Le Mans-winning Jaguar XJR-9. Yes, of course it has a V12 engine. When new, they cost $960,000 US, but recent auction results have seen them sell for less, suggesting that there might be some change back from a crisp $1,000,000 bill if you do indeed to buy this car. We should also remind you: don’t forget your friends, especially your friends at Petrolicious

The car: 1959 Fiat Abarth 750 GT Zagato

Price: £79,995

Location: London, United Kingdom

OK, you may not be able to keep up with the Jaguar above or Bugatti below, but there’s a special kind of fun to be hand by driving a “slow” car fast. Of those, none are more legendary than Abarth’s special Zagato-bodied sports cars, based on Fiat mechanicals but much, much faster. It won its class two years running at the tricky Mille Miglia road race, as well as set speed records at the Monza circuit, averaging an unbelievable 102 mph (165 km/h) for 72 hours. Yeah, we think it’ll do OK driving to your local Cars & Coffee!

The car: Bugatti Veyron Centenaire

Price: €1,475,000

Location: Leusden, Netherlands

Seller’s Info: Click here

If you’re in the market for a Bugatti Veyron, there are a number on-sale around the world. If you’d like one of the very special limited-edition ones, we think there are few finer than the earlier L’Edition Centenaire Villa d’Este version. The listing says it’s the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition, named after a Bugatti racing driver of the same name, but in fact this car was inspired by the driver; the company later released a different car dedicated to its once-star driver.

If you know of a great, stylish car for sale and would like us to feature it, please let us know!
