My Top Five One-Off Cars Countdown (rating from 5 to 1)

Hello fellow gearheads,

In my first official post to the blog, I will be telling you guys about my favorite one-off or one-of-a kind cars. Well, here is my list. I hope you guys agree with me.

#5 James Glickenhaus' 2006 Ferrari 612P4-5

This is James Glickenhaus' one-of-a-kind $4,000,000 612P4-5. This earns my #5 spot because of the car's history. Mr. Glickenhaus loves Ferrari. When the Ferrari Enzo came out in 2002-2003, Glickenhaus bought it for around $675,000. This sparked his interest in creating a one-off car and he brought his ideas to Pininfarina in March of 2005. The car was meant to resemble his 1967 Ferrari 330 p3/4 (and it certainly does!). This car's personality clearly represents the history of one of the most beautiful race cars ever made. Specs are as follows: 660 horsepower, 0-60 time in 3.0 seconds, top speed of 233 mph, 6.0 liter V12, which remains unchanged from the Enzo, 485 lb. ft. of torque, and a 6-speed semi automatic transmission.

#4 Kris Singh's Pagani Huyara La Monza Lisa

This is the first one-off Pagani Huyara requested by Miami multi-millionare, Kris Singh. The car is named after the famous racetrack, Monza, in Italy. The cost is a whopping $1,500,000 which is $100k more than the base MSRP for a regular Huyara. Specs include: 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, a 6.0 liter Mercedes bi-turbo v12, transverse 6 speed sequential, 730 HP, and 738 ft. lb. of torque. Singh also owns a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster 50th anniversary and a $4,100,000 Lamborghini Veneno. You can follow him @lamborghiniks on Instagram.

#3 Saudi Arabian Man's Bugatti Veyron L'or Blanc

Sorry guys, I couldn't find the owner's name for this $2.39 million beauty. All I know is that it is registered in Saudi Arabia. This is a very unique version that debuted in 2011. The car chassis is composed of aluminum and carbon fiber. In the cabin, the car's interior includes porcelain and the finest leather around. I apologize for not including more details, but it is quite the mysterious vehicle. I estimate that the owner is about 30 years old. Like every other fantastic car that Bugatti makes, the specs include the following: a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox, 0-60 time is 2.5 seconds, 1001 horsepower, 922 ft lbs of torque, top speed is 253 mph all because of a 8 liter, quad turbo W16.

#2 Junichiro Hiramatsu's Ferrari SP1

This is Junichiro Hiramatsu's Ferrari SP1 (or special prototype 1) based off of a Ferrari F430 Berlinetta. This was the first car built by Ferrari's special projects division for the Japanese executive businessman. This car also looks like a Mclaren MP4-12C. But what if that car's design was the inspiration for the 12C? That's probably not the case. The car did put a dent in Hiramatsu's bank account with a sizable impression of several million dollars. The price isn't exact. This work of art has 596 HP, a 4.3 liter V-8, a 6 speed sequential, and a 0-60 and torque top speed is unknown because I couldn't find them. If anyone has info on that, please let me know so that I may edit this post.

#1 Albert Speiss' Lamborghini 595 Zagato

And my personal favorite and number one choice ... Albert Speiss' Lamborghini 595 Zagato. Speiss already has a couple of one-of-a-kind cars in his collection like a 1985 Aston v8 Zagato and a 2012 Aston v12 Zagato. If you guessed that this is based off of the now-deceased Gallardo, well my friend, pat yourself on the back and ask your Grandma for a cookie because you're right! This car's transmission is a 6-speed e-gear automatic and the engine is the same beast of an engine that is also in the Audi r8 v10, which is the Lamborghini 5.2 liter v10 with 570 horsepower with a top speed of 202mph and 0 hooks up quite fast with 60 at 3.4 seconds and 397 ft lbs of torque.


  1. That Bugatti looks just like the Batmobile!!!

  2. Love the Lamborghini's! Would have chosen a better color but I'll take it :)
