The Second Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Is a $28 Million Symphony of Brown

Make a good movie, and you may as well turn it into a trilogy if the studio folks agree, since that’s usually good for business. Rolls-Royce certainly put a lot of effort into creating the Boat Tail series, a special trio more coachbuilt than other luxury cars out there. Of course, saying that this second one is mostly brown doesn't do its exterior justice. Instead, here’s how the Goodwood team describes what’s going on with the shades:

Mercedes Just Sold The World's Most Expensive Car

What comes to your mind when you try to think of the most expensive car in the world? Some fancy custom version of a Bugatti, or perhaps a really amazing Lamborghini? No matter which car brand you were thinking of, the answer is wrong — unless you were thinking of Mercedes-Benz.

According to CurrencyRate, as of May 20, 2022, this adds up to USD $142.5 million. Why was this car so expensive, and what makes it so special?

This Rare Ford Mustang Has A Magical History

When the Ford Mustang was first launched over half a century ago, few could imagine that this American Pony car would be the best-selling sports car in the world in 2022. Yes, the Mustang is loved by millions across the globe, and earlier generations have always been sought-after collectors items. We've covered some rare Mustang finds in our time, and we've got to admit, a classic Mustang never gets old. Just take this 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible: it is one of only 11 Mustang drop-tops featured at the time-traveling tunnel in the Magic Skyway at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair, and won the MCA Trailered Concours Gold at the 2016 Niagara show. This rare beauty is being auctioned off through Mecum, and is estimated to reach between $100k and $150K when it crosses the block at the 2022 Indy Auction tomorrow, Saturday 21 May.

How Many Millions? This Mercedes-Benz Is the Most Expensive Car in the World

Let's get straight to it: A Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe just sold for $142 million. It's now the most valuable car of all time, according to Mercedes-Benz. That's the number 142 followed by six zeros—a sum pretty much unfathomable for us common folk. Consider this: The original Shelby Cobra, considered to be one of the most important American sports cars, sold for $13 million in 2016. Add a zero to the end, and you're still not there.

Thinking About A New Mid-Size SUV? I Drove The 2022 Cadillac XT6. Here's What You Should Know About It.

If you're a mom looking for a spacious new car to handle your ever-changing life and needs but refuse to live the van life, the XT6 may be perfect for you. Before I became a mother, you could often find me driving around NYC, D.C. and upstate New York in a brand new vehicle, testing the latest cars of all makes and models. But since entering parenthood and having to purchase my own family car, the opportunity to test vehicles hasn’t been as feasible (you try doing alternate side street parking for two cars). Not to mention, my needs are greater than before, having to lug around a stroller and car seat for my tot. However, I get to relive the old glory days when I have the chance to travel. These days, mid-size SUVs are my preference, and during a recent mother-son trek back to the Midwest to see my parents, I had the chance to try out a newer one that was impressive.

OFFICIAL: World's Most Expensive Car Ever Cost $142 Million

Over the past couple of years, we have seen an alarming spike in the prices of used and new cars, whether these are everyday vehicles, classic cars, or hypercars. Naturally, the rarer the car, the higher the price. We've seen a McLaren F1 sell for a record $20.5 million and the record price for a Porsche 918 Spyder has surpassed $1.4 million. Heck, even the finest iteration of the BMW M3, the E46, has sold for a shocking $85,000 - $13,000 more than you'd pay for a brand new M4.

Well Preserved 1986 Ford Bronco II Up For Auction

While the Ford Bronco has – for most of its life – been a massive success, the same cannot be said for the much-maligned Ford Bronco II. The smaller, Ford Ranger based utility was a huge hit when it launched, and Ford sold over 700,000 of them from 1984-1990 before the Ford Explorer came along and replaced it, but the Bronco II remains best known for its less than idea stability that made it prone to roll over. However, while there were once many of them roaming our streets, this 1986 Ford Bronco II up for grabs at Bring a Trailer isn’t nearly as common a sight today.
