 Neiman Marcus is selling an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera designed by Daniel CraigRobb Report
There is no car brand more closely associated with James Bond than Aston Martin. And this holiday season, you’ll get to buy one of the British automaker’s latest supercars designed by the man himself — or, at least, the man who plays him, Daniel Craig. This year’s annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book features an ultra-rare Aston Martin DBS Superleggera designed by the five-time franchise star. And if that weren’t enough for the deep-pocketed Agent 007 obsessives out there, it also comes with a limited-edition Omega watch and tickets to the premiere of the next Bond film, “No Time to Die.” (Image: Neiman Marcus)  READ MORE

The Specialty Equipment Market Association filed a petition Oct. 17 in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California requiring that the U.S. Department of Transportation fulfill a Congressional mandate on implementing carmaker guidelines for building turnkey replica vehicles. Passed by Congress in 2015, one provision of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act specified that low-volume automakers could sell up to 325 replica cars — new versions of vehicles manufactured at least 25 years earlier — on an annual basis.  READ MORE
 One man’s quest to make a street-legal IndyCarPopular Mechanics
It’s a simple concept: take a race car and make it street legal by adding turn signals, headlights, and the other accoutrements required by the local authorities and inspection station. In the South, street-legal NASCAR racers are a relatively common genre of track toy. But an IndyCar is on another level of difficulty — open wheel, single-seat, and with an unobtainable engine that that’s actually a piece of the chassis itself. Gary Cheney, a serial car builder from New Hampshire, knew better than most how hard it would be to make an IndyCar tolerable for the street. He used to own a 1990s Reynard that he ran at a few track days before crashing it, fixing it, and getting rid of it.  READ MORE

Here, we present eight special-edition Corvette models through the years, each with its own list of special features.  READ MORE

 Hamilton expects title battle to continue beyond MexicoRacer
Lewis Hamilton does not expect to wrap up the drivers’ championship at this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix. Teammate Valtteri Bottas took victory ahead of Sebastian Vettel at Suzuka, with Hamilton finishing third in a result that means only the two Mercedes drivers remain in mathematical contention for the championship. Hamilton can secure a sixth drivers’ title if he outscores Bottas by 14 points or more in Mexico City, but says the combination of Bottas’ form and a historically tough circuit for Mercedes mean such a result is unlikely.  READ MORE
