Practically brand-new 1964 Volkswagen Beetle priced at $1 million

A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle with just 23 miles on the odometer has hit the open market and can be yours for the low, low price of $1 million.

You read that right: A Volkswagen Beetle with a seven-figure price tag.

That would shatter the record for the most expensive Beetle ever sold. To put the $1 million price tag in perspective, Hagerty estimates that a 1964 example in concours condition would go for about $30,000.

Razer Phone 2 Review


What is the Razer Phone 2?

Avid gamer looking for a perfect mobile fragging station? Then the Razer Phone 2 may be the handset for you.

The imaginatively named Razer Phone 2 is the second phone from gaming peripherals and hardware specialist Razer, and according to the company, it has been ‘designed by gamers for gamers’.

At first glance it’s not the most interesting gaming phone to arrive this year. It doesn’t have the ridiculous design or wealth of peripherals offered by the competing ROG Phone. Instead it’s a 0.5 upgrade that aims to fix minor issues that hampered the original Razer Phone’s appeal to non-gamers.

But the changes Razer has made, which include an improved max screen brightness, upgraded internals and the addition of wireless charging, are positive. These, coupled with the still excellent sound system and super slick, HDR-ready, 120Hz refresh-rate screen, mean the phone is still a dream

Resto-mods popular with bidders at Mecum’s Denver auction

Mecum Auctions posted $10 million in sales with a 75 percent sell-through rate at its recent collector car sale in Denver, where the top-seller was a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda convertible that brought $181,500.

Prices reported include buyer’s fee.

The ’70 ‘Cuda wore Plum Crazy Pearl paint and was powered by a 528cid, 650-horsepower aluminum Gen 2 Indy Hemi V8 linked to a race-prepped 727 automatic transmission. 

’68 Ford Mustang packs a 650-horsepower punch

Resto-mod muscle proved popular with bidders as a 1968 Ford Mustang brought $143,000 thanks in part to a restoration that included the insertion of a 427cid, 650-horsepower Dart V8 and 5-speed Tremec manual shifter.

Muscle did well at the sale, but the No. 3 seller was a 1966 Volkswagen 21-window Samba bus that sold for $118,250.

QOTD: What’s Your Sketchiest Used Car Buying Experience?

For most people, not having a brand new car sort of budget can mean scrounging around on AutoTrader, Cars.com, eBay, or even the ever-professional Craigslist for used vehicles. The resulting experiences end up shaping the future of our car ownership, our finances, and perhaps our legal situations in some cases.

Today we want you to know about your sketchiest used car buying experience.

I’ve always bought used cars; it’s a fun little (expensive) game to play. Use your skills and knowledge, and you might not get burned. Let someone else take that depreciation hit! Totaling up the cars I’ve owned thus far, my count is 11. All were used and at least five years old at the time of purchase, and only two came from dealers. My sketchiest car purchase story comes

10 ’90s Cars That Are Still Totally in Demand or Whatever

NEW YORK (MainStreet) – Sorry, Millennials, but even the cars your parents shuttled you to school in are being left behind.

There are still a whole lot of people looking for 1990s cars, but that number decreases with each passing year. Mark Williams, analyst for Kelley Blue Book, did some digging and found that vehicles from the ’90s are on a consistent decline, which he doesn’t find at all surprising.

“As new model years are introduced to the market, the older model years are being suppressed and yield less interest,” he says. “For example, the most shopped 1990s models are 1999, 1998, 1997, respectively.”

They’re not exactly Those ’90s Cars, either. Williams pulled up the Top 25 cars from the 1990s searched on Kelley Blue Book and came up with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, Jeep Wrangler, Ford F-150, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Mustang and Toyota Corolla among the

One Week With: 2018 Cadillac CT6 Platinum AWD

I’m belted into the driver’s seat, rolling along Los Angeles’ furiously busy 405 freeway on a Tuesday morning, keeping pace with the surrounding traffic at a slightly extra-legal 70 mph. There is a car within feet of me on either side, another one two car lengths ahead, and a fourth—its driver clearly hyper-caffeinated—so close behind it is apparently trying to park itself inside my trunk. Me? I’ve got both feet flat on the floor, my arms are folded in my lap, and I’m watching all the surging, shuffling madness around me with a strange, newfound sense of serenity. And why wouldn’t I be? After all, the Cadillac I’m sitting in is driving all by itself.

Welcome to the brave new world of Cadillac Super Cruise. Launched last fall on the manufacturer’s up-level CT6 sedan, Super Cruise is Caddy’s new Level 2 semi-autonomous driving feature. A $5,000
