VLF Force 1 V10 supercar, 1 of 5 built, is up for grabs

A few years ago, a company co-founded by Bob Lutz unveiled a supercar based on the Dodge Viper and featuring styling by Henrik Fisker.

It was called the Force 1 V10, and just five were made by VLF based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Now one of those five cars can be yours as it’s listed for sale in Gooding & Company’s Geared Online auction.

The online auction ends today and at the time of writing the current bid on the Force 1 is $140,000. The estimate is between $275,000 and $325,000.

The car, finished in dark blue and with a red and black interior, is the first of the five Force 1 V10 supercars made. The original buyer raced a Viper GT3R and was an early supporter of the Force 1 V10 project, which ensured he received build number one. He’s put just 1,370 miles on the odometer.

Ford F-250 Tremor vs. Ram Power Wagon: Off-Roading, Price, Specs & More

Price Comparison: Ford F-250 Tremor vs. Ram Power Wagon

Taking into account the impressive off-road performance that both these trucks offer, the Power Wagon and the Tremor give you pretty good value. Their base prices are similar: $50,040 for the Ram and $53,820 for the Ford in their most basic versions. Both prices include destination.

The most cost-effective way to build a Power Wagon is to choose a base-level Ram 2500 Crew Cab Tradesman (with 4WD and the short bed) and add the Power Wagon package to it at a $7,995 premium. This brings the total price to $50,040. If you’re looking for more than the most basic version, though, the Power Wagon is usually sold with the equivalent equipment of a Laramie trim level. Its starting price is $55,045, and includes a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 8.4-inch touchscreen and more features that don’t come on the Tradesman.

A Burned Ferrari 400i Project Car Heads This Week’s Look at Some “Great” Wrecked Exotics

Like a slow-motion car crash, the website of Porche Foreign Auto Inc. (aka PorFor; incorrect Porsche spelling intentional due to lawyers) is something we just can’t look away from once we take a peek. Founded in South Central Los Angeles in the late 1960s, the late owner Rudi Klein (and now his sons who run the business) have bought and sold wrecked classics, exotics, and luxury vehicles for decades. We gave you more of the history in our last roundup of available parts and project cars, but the Kleins are still at it and have now unearthed several wrecked classics from their vast collection—from a Ferrari 400i to a Facel Vega—for your consideration.

A V-12-powered Ferrari for just $9,500 seems pretty tough to pass up, until you see the photos at least. This poor Ferrari 400i isn’t a wrecked exotic in
