This year marks the 50th anniversary of Ford Mustang’s introduction to the world. The iconic car rolled out in 1964. Now, Ford will commemorate the occasion by building 1,964 units of the 2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. Buyers get two colors: Wimbledon White or Kona blue, and a choice of six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic.
The chrome highlights and louvered rear quarter windows come only in this edition. Other offerings include cashmere and leather on the steering wheel, front bucket seats and other console areas. The limited edition has a 5.0-liter V8 producing 420 hp. This thing looks good and they’ll come out first half of next year, so save a spot in line starting. Right. NOW.

Meet the ‘world’s first megacar’. So dubbed by Koenigsegg for its Agera One:1, producing a little over one megawatt of power at 1,341 hp. All this power comes out of a twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8. Not only that, it comes with futuristic parts like variable geometry turbos in custom, 3D-printed housings and a 3D-printed titanium exhaust. It hits a simulated top speed of 273 mph, but since only 6 will be built (all have been spoken for), you’ll have to take their word for it.

$318,000 to buy the new McLaren 650s. Chump change really. That pocket change gets 641-hp and items like exterior carbon fiber bumpers, door blades and racing seats. Just like every new car coming out, it’ll make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

First off, if you can afford an Aston Martin, congratulations. Second, if you want one, consider this new Aston Martin N430. It’s part of the Aston Martin N Edition V8 Vantages line. Aston Martin offers two styles for the N430: coupe and roadster. ‘Club sports graphics packs’ give this edition a racier feel. The 430-hp, 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and 190 mph top speed don’t hurt either. Add in carbon-Kevlar seats and you have a total chick magnet. Sure beats driving a Corolla.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier flies into theaters on April 4th. He’ll be ushering in this Black Widow Corvette Stingray when he does. Now, it won’t be Captain America rolling around in this black-on-black mean machine. Instead, it’ll be Scarlett Johansson, as she plays Black Widow in the flick. What’s the over/under for camera shots of the Chevrolet logo? Doesn’t matter. It could be 1000 as long as they include Scarlett.

CB4 was great and all, but CB7 looks just a bit better. The Felino CB7 to be exact. The Canadian manufacturer took the wraps off this concept car at the 2014 Montreal International Auto Show. Four years in the making, it’s headed to the track, but could make its way to the streets.
A 6.2-liter, V-8 engine powers the inside, producing 525 hp and turning heads everywhere. Felino will price it somewhere south of $100,000. Not bad at all.

The on-again, off-again production of Porsche’s Targa resumes with the 2015 version. While the Cabriolet gets most of the love, there’s still something to be said for the Targa. Appearing first in 1965, it was dubbed the “safety Cabriolet”. Its removable hardtop gave some protection for those wanting a choice in between a soft-top convertible and fixed-roof car.
Specs include 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds on 350 hp. Porsche figures the 2015 Porsche Targa will be a good choice for those in colder areas of the country, where buyers might want something sporty, but offering more weather proection than a Cabriolet. Expect to pay $100-115k.
