The internationally acclaimed Maranello based car company Ferrari, isn’t known for creating the most practical of cars. Few customers consider how many USB ports the car has, or whether it has enough suitcase space for a multi day road trip when they are looking through the Ferrari catalog. The one car in the Ferrari stable that comes the closest to pandering to the more practical of their wealthy clientele is the Ferrari California Convertible. For this “entry level” Ferrari, they have incorporated a few practical bits, including an easier entry and exit of the car, and a bigger trunk. I hope the talk of comfort and such haven’t fooled you though, this still is an unrepentant Ferrari to its core. The 483 HP 4.3 V8 engine rips and crackles the car from a standstill to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds. In classic Ferrari fashion, this car is still just as much of a fashion piece as it is automobile and the more than $200,000 base price (new) is a stark reminder of what it stands for and its standing in the automotive universe. While before you had to put down more than the cost of 8 new Toyota Camry’s combined to have this car in your hands, this auction is your chance to place your bid for a fraction of the retail cost. With a starting bid of $10,000, this LIVE auction is on January 6 at 9am in Riverside, CA. There are a few availability’s to bid online if you can’t make it to the location on that date.

German car makers seem to have a knack for finding the balance between beautiful design, lust worthy luxury, and powerful speed in their vehicles. The all wheel drive, BMW X5 xDrive35D SUV is no different right from when you lay eyes on it. The exterior is classic BMW understated luxury, which at once blends in and stands out with its beautiful and thoughtfully crafted body. The leather interior treats you when you enter and when you put your foot down, the 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel I6 engine churns out an ample 255 hp, rushing this almost 5,000 pound beast to 60 MPH in just 6.6 seconds. On the xDrive35D, the “D” represents the fuel that powers this vehicle, namely that it runs on diesel rather than the more common unleaded gasoline. This feature adds to this already wonderful package the beneficial feature of spectacular gas mileage of 23 city and 31 highway, not much less than a 3 series sedan! With fewer than 7,000 miles on the odometer, this spectacular SUV is lightly used and with a current bid of $21,825 is 65% cheaper than a similar used example! If you are interested, place your bid before the auction ends on December 29 at 12:00 Noon Central Time (CT).
