2015 Ruf RT12 R
This 2015 RUF RT12 R is the Porsche 911 as only legendary Porsche wizard Alois Ruf can conjure the Stuttgart missile. Presented in splendid as-new condition at 276 miles, this car will have special meaning to Porschephiles who recall the car that cemented RUF’s well-earned reputation for producing some of the world’s fastest, most exclusive automobiles: the record-breaking Yellowbird. Like that legendary 200 MPH rocket sled, the RT12 R may deceive with what first appears to be the body and wheel/tire upgrades not uncommon to 911 variants, but this is much more. More than a tuner, RUF is a manufacturer that takes Porsche body shells and fills them out with the stuff of dreams.
2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
Offered with only 3,300 accumulated miles at the time of writing, this 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is highly equipped with the optional $9,900 red and black interior treatment and optional red and black steering wheel—an $800 extra-cost item. The Lysholm twin-screw supercharged 5.4L engine delivers its massive 617 HP output via an AMG Speedshift R automatic transmission. The advanced Stability Control System enhances the drive and 4-wheel carbon-ceramic disc brakes with red calipers deliver ample stopping power.
