Ed’s Car History: 1985 Audi 4000S Quattro Brock Yates Cannonball Edition

In 1985, the year I was born, Brumos Audi in Jacksonville, FL modified Quattro 4000S sport sedans to celebrate Brock Yates and Cannonball. They were numbered out of 12. When I found out about the existence of the cars a few years ago, I thought it would be amazing to own one. Obviously a lot […]

Ed’s Car History: 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe, 6 Speed Manual

I replaced my unicorn car – the manual LP640 – with the only thing that made sense… Another one. I know there is some sentiment that the manual cars are over-hyped but I continue to beg to differ. The Murcielago in any form is the best supercar bargain out there but the sequential cars generally […]

Another Manual LP640 has appeared. This car was sold this week by Lamborghini Montreal. It is a 4th Canadian car. My list only had 3 there up until now. This one is Giallo Orion with a black interior and yellow Q-Citura. They were not sure what they had and sold the car about $100k under […]

I finally got around to doing some research to see how rare the Ruf RT12’s are in the US. I have been enjoying mine since picking it up in January but I did some browsing around the internet and social media and these are the ones that I have found. W09BD03866PR06060 – 2006 RT12S W09BD038X6PR06062 […]

Why are there so few manual exotic cars?

Recently I have talked a lot about the rarity of manual cars. They certainly have become conspicuous in their absence from the market place and in their increasing popularity among enthusiast circles. I had a great conversation recently with a car collector about why that was. He posited that at some point, manufacturers would notice the […]
