Use this thread to post some incredibly rare/one-off cars, could be factory prototypes, racing models etc. Please include info and a back story if possible. An example to get the ball rolling

Lamborghini Countach Turbo



The Lamborghini Countach Turbo was an incredibly rare car only built twice from factory. The prototype is believed to have been lost/destroyed so the car pictured above is a true one of a kind. Some words taken from another forum

QUOTE
The 4,8 liter V12 with bi-turbo had a power output of 748 hp (!!!!) and 876 Newtonmeter. It managed to do 0-100 km/h in 3,7 seconds and kept going all the way up to 333 km/h.

Beneath the steering wheel there is a turbo adjuster. It could be manually turned to boost the turbo from 0,7 bar to 1,5 bar at which the engine performed its maximum power output.



uiui

the Cadillac Sixteen Concept is a one off. vehicle. I kinda wish it wasn't... that car would show Roles Royce what for.



the Ciel is also a one off concept car.
and the Y job i don't think more of them where made.
only 14 Futureliners where made. of which only 9 still exist today "picture basicly contains half of them!!!

the Cadillac Syclone is likely a one off.
"SOOO wish there where BPs for it...
and the Chrysler Turbine toothygrin.gif
Kubason


Škoda Ferat (or Škoda Super Sport)
It was sports prototype made by Škoda in 1971 from fiberglass, engine was 1,2 litres and gave 76kW of power and could go 216 kph. However, the company didn't approve it as productable car, so there is only one prototype that was used in movie Vampire from Ferat (that gave this car its name).

Isn't that gold car in the back rare too? Is that the Phaeton or something like that?

Kinda looks like the rear of an early Thunderbird? You could use the bp's for the Thunderbird and use ref pics to change some stuff up. toung.gif

Not really concept cars as such, I'm talking like, working prototypes, like the Countach I posted, especially ones with an interesting story
Faяaп.
1955 Lincoln Futura Original

Only 1 was hand crafted in Italy by Ghia with a cost of $250,000

in 1966 Ford Motor company sold it to Barris for $1, and Barris converted it into the Batmobile.



1 guy with the consent of Barris replicated the Batmobile, and then went on to covnert the batmobile replica into a lincoln Futura. The Original lincoln futura was convertted into the batmobile, so this replica of the lincoln futura is the only 1 in existence

Lincoln Futura Replica, converted from a Batmobile replica



The latest appearance of the Futura, is a spin off called the Jefferson Futura in Mafia 2
Kubason
so, I did it right?
Brandon
Yep.

And Kevin that Mustang is so awesome.

Toyota Carina aa63 sedan:

They also had a GT-R E-aa63 version:
Kubason
then here is another one

Škoda Rapid Gunsch


This Škoda was upgraded by one of Škoda managers to his own dreams, it also got new engine wich was 1.5 litre giving about 110 kW, completly new suspension, tires and new rims
in the interior there were given new seats by Recaro. This car was supposed to be imported to Canda, because one Škoda fan there wanted to import some cars but it failed, dunno why though, but this one actually worked and all, Škoda just never made more than this one
there was also made a roadster version, this is just replica, couldn't find original pictures


I think this car is pretty awesome (except wings)
Brandon
That's awesome. ohmy.gif
DMC-12
One of three RHD DeLoreans built for use at the factory in Ireland.

Note the lack of side lights, addition of roof mounted aerial and side marker lights.





These tail lights were fitted after the cars were sold at auction in the 80s by a former DMC executive to make the cars legal in the UK as the originals didn't have fog lights.


There were an additional 13 RHD models converted under licence by Wooler-Hodec.

2002 Honda NSX-R GT
To begin with, Honda NSX-R's are hard enough to find. They were produced only in japan and in limited numbers. Only 483 first generation type R's were produced. But with the second generation, honda wanted to take the type R even further with a model they could base their super GT class race cars off of. By rule, at least 5 of the car had to be produced by the factory. So, honda made 5 NSX-R GT's. They never really gave a full list of upgrades that made the GT different from the regular type R.




The NSX-R GT was also used by Spoon Motorsports to creat possibly the rarest Honda in existance. One of 5 NSX-R GT's was tuned to create the Spoon NSX-R GT. It was tuned to race. And has been dubbed by people who have driven it as follows"The Spoon NSX-R GT is the most thrilling and fun-to-drive car in this group...perhaps the world." Spoon began to produce replicas of the car in 2009 offering them for $150,000. An incredibly cheap price for cars that are said to look, feel, drive and perform just like the original.

My apologies, major brainfart. But I swear I read something about the original 5 not actually existing, I'll have to check that out. In the mean time, Porsche 911 (993) Speedster:



QUOTE
In contrast to the G-model and the 964, Porsche never officially released a 993 Speedster. However, two were built by the factory: a dark green Speedster equipped with Tiptronic S and 17-inch (430 mm) wheels for Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (his 60th anniversary) in 1995 and another wide-body, silver Speedster with manual transmission and 18-inch (460 mm) wheels for American TV star Jerry Seinfeld in 1998.

Ben.H
Actually, speaking of the Type-R saloon, I saw one in Birmingham the other day with my mate Kaine. Wasn't sure if it was genuine or not, turns out it was, spoke to the owner and lo and behold, it had a B18
nick_boy69

Got 3 of these at work,run 4 carbys on them,Only 5 of them in New Zealand,dont think theres many around the world either
J.red
all third gen integras came with b18's as far as i know.
Ben.H
Nonetheless it was definitely a Type-R, I thought he put the stickers and spoiler on after but apparently not
