Be prepared for all the attention that will no doubt come your way when you have this car in your stable. This is a faithful representation of the aluminum 427 Cobra. The 1965 Shelby Superformance is made of fiberglass and this car has wowed the SEMA crowd in 2008, proving that it has the chops. Power comes from a Roush-tuned Windsor V8 delivering a colossal 560 hp matched to a proper five-speed manual transmission. There are plenty of details to be discussed in the car – that is if you can stop staring at its beauty and start reading its specs sheet. She’s being offered for sale by RK Motors of Charlotte, NC courtesy of luxury marketplace JamesList. $119,000.

Her corner of China is known for its abundant apples and its old grape vineyards. It’s no surprise why we’re treated with such sweetness today, courtesy of Jin Mei Xin, otherwise known as Olwen Jin. She may be sexy and pretty, but we’re a bit puzzled as to why she’d have the name ‘Chris Cheung’ prominently tattooed on her left thigh. Whatever reasons she had, it’s probably regrettable in the end.

The Ferrari F40 was a monster hit when it first came out, and it’s reputation as one of the world’s best-ever supercars remains intact. But what happens when you take an already-awesome car and give it the GT modification? You’ll get this beast, the F40 Prototype/GT from 1987. Only eight copies rolled out, this is number six. Its most successful campaign landed it in the 2nd spot in the Italian GT Championship and this was the show car for the Frankfurt Motor Show. Extremely rare but extremely well-behaved, this car is definitely one for the ages and will be a crowning piece for any serious collector. Bid for her at RM Auctions’ May 12 event in Monaco. ~$920,000+.

The world’s capitals didn’t earn that title by accident, and they became the head city of a country for a reason. Afzal Kahn believes that whenever you’re in a big metropolis like Los Angeles, Dubai or London, you should be traveling with the best. His new take on the Range Rover, called the Capital City edition, is decked in white and red and is loaded with the modifications you’d usually expect from Kahn Design. The interior is of course fit for a suburban showman like you as it comes with a quilted glove box, a clock with Swarovski crystals and billet aluminum trim among others. Completing the look are the sporty RS-R wheels for total elegance. $TBD.

The annual Pirelli calendar is so peculiar. It’s from a company that’s related to automobiles, being tire makers and all, but the calendars feature nothing but scantily-clad women. Not that we’re complaining, it’s actually awesome from our perspective. Erin Wasson was part of the 2011 edition. You wouldn’t think that she’d make it big in the world of modeling, growing up a bit tomboy-ish.
