2006 Hummer H1 Alpha Open Top

In 1992, AM General released the first commercially available civilian version of their versatile military all-terrain Humvee. In 2006, the H1 underwent a major redesign, including a Duramax Diesel engine, Allison transmission, raised body and redesigned brush guard, which garnered it the designation of “Alpha”. The H1 Alpha Open Top is dropping into the Eliminator mode, so keep an eye on your rearview mirror.

2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performante

 

 

The #1 most requested car in the Forza forums is finally here. ­The track version of the Huracan, the Performante has a reworked suspension, recalibrated steering, and a reported 750% more downforce than its road counterpart. When it broke the production car record at the Nürburgring, Lamborghini attributed the feat to its advanced aerodynamics system, which adjusts microflaps on the Huracan to decrease drag when needed, and increase downforce when needed. All we know is that a time of 6:52 on the Nordschliefe bears mentioning any chance you get.

Well, until Porsche comes along.

1964 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet Emory Special

The custom restoration work for which Emory Motorsports is known is unparalleled, and that’s nowhere clearer than in their Porsche 356C Outlaw. Every Outlaw that is produced by Emory is custom in its components and styling, but they all breathe fire through the proprietary Emory-Rothsport Outlaw-4 engine, plus a 911 suspension system. All of that layered on to what is already a vintage car lover’s dream in the 356 C makes this the ultimate package.

1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex

This extremely lightweight RWD sports car is a cult icon; perfectly balanced and highly

moddable, the Trueno’s role in the popular Initial D anime and manga introduced a generation to

Japanese motorsport culture. Toyota’s final rear-wheel Corolla before moving to a fully FWD system,

the Trueno (aka the AE86) overperformed in every kind of racing there was, from rally to touring to,

most of all, drifting. When the Trueno appeared in Keiichi Tsuchiya’s ”Pluspy” video, it cemented its legacy in the drifting world.
