March 9 – 2017 McLaren 720S Velocity by MSO The most notable change is the use of two pearlescent shades of red, which in a manner a little reminiscent of custom hot rods, fade from one color into the other. The front features a darker Nerello red, on the front and upper body panels, and that includes the red-tinted carbon fiber hood, that gives way to a brighter Volcano red over most of the car's sides and the rear. The two colors are similar enough for the fade to have some subtlety, while adding considerably to the dynamism of the overall design.

December 11 – 1952 Bentley Continental R-Type The goal of the majestic Continental R Type was to create a luxurious Grand Tourer that could cruise reliably at 100 mph, with a top speed of about 115 mph.

November 23 – 2017 Jaguar XKSS Built from 1954-1957, the D-Type in its last year of production not only won Le Mans, but took 5 of the top 6 places. Although the D-Type was an inspiration behind the famous E-Type of the 1960s (note the E-Type following the D-Type), the actual roadgoing version of this car was the XKSS built in 1957. Jaguar originally planned to build 25 cars, but a fire at the Browns Lane plant on February 12, 1957 destroyed 9 of the cars, so only 16 were produced, most being sold in the United States. Jaguar has decided to complete those 9 missing cars 60 years later, and has painstakingly constructed these beautiful cars to their original specs.
