This pony will roar. It's a 2019 Ferrari 812 Superfast with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and achieves 800 horsepower.
The car's Bianco Avus exterior is paired with a red interior and checks many options boxes. It has yellow brake calipers, a carbon fiber driver zone with LEDs, carbon fiber central bridge, colored inner details, colored safety belts, carbon fiber dashboard inserts, horse stitched on headrests, colored mats with logo, heat insulated windscreen, 'Scuderia Ferrari' shields, front and rear parking cameras, Daytona racing seats, and racing seat lifter.
It rides on 20-inch forged dark painted wheels. *chef's kiss*

Why get a Porsche 911? "Because it's ... iconic," said the owner of this 2020 model, Houston, Texas resident Christian Brown.
The car was first introduced in September 1964 and has undergone continuous development while still holding true to its design heritage. A new, eighth generation of the car debuted in 2019 and given the 992 designation. It's available in an expanded number of varieties for the 2020 and 2021 model year including the 911 S Turbo, which is the fastest 911 to date.

Craig Bethscheider of Cypress, Texas traded for this 1957 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery in 2016, marking his 50th '57. The only thing he's updated since he purchased it is the drivetrain, which now features modern components.
The car was originally produced under the Chevrolet One-Fifty line and 1957 was its swan song. For '58, the One-Fifty lineup was replaced by the Delray.

The LeMans Blue paint job is the key reason Craig Beecher owns this 2005 Chevrolet Corvette Z51. He said, " I hunted for this car, nation wide. It just popped up, 50 miles from me, one morning." He paid $18,000 for it in 2019.
Since purchase, Beecher has modified the car a bit. There's a new Borla back axle, Hurst shifter, and SLC cold air intake.
The car already came with the the Z51 package, which includes a stiffer suspension, larger brakes than the typical 'Vette, a six-speed manual transmission with shorter ratios, and a transmission-oil cooler. Legendary Car & Driver editor Csaba Csere was impressed with the car's performance with the added package, giving it high marks when it was new.

Its already race-like prowess is further enhanced by the 720S Performance Package, MSO defined cargo fiber steering wheel, MSO defined carbon fiber steering wheel paddles, silver brake calipers, 5 twin-spoke lightweight forged wheels, HomeLink system, vehicle lift, secondary interior components in carbon fiber, power steering column, electric and heated memory seats, sports exhaust, and a 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system. It wears a Pearl White exterior and black interior.
