These Are the Strangest Special Edition Cars Ever Built

Cars come in all shapes and sizes, but occasionally certain models get a special edition to really get pulses racing. While many special edition cars are big hits with fans, some are just confusing. These are undoubtedly the strangest special edition cars ever built.

These Are the Strangest Special Edition Cars Ever Built

VW Polo Harlekin

Judging by this special edition by Volkswagen, it’s now very obvious why manufacturers don’t mix up the colors of their car panels. This special edition Polo was released in the 1990s, which may be the only real explanation as to why it came with such an eclectic paint job.

AMC Gremlin Levi’s

We love a good pair of jeans as much as the next person, but it’s not clear that denim makes a good choice for a car. AMC teamed up its Gremlin with Levi’s during the 1970s to bring us this creation, complete with a denim-style interior.

Dacia Sandero Black Edition

What could be better than taking a pretty dull and boring car and releasing a special edition? That should have gotten people interested in the Dacia Sandero, but there was just one problem. This ‘special’ edition just painted everything black. While that style works for some cars, we’re not sure it makes the Sandero feel special enough.

Smart for Jeremy

The Smart car is small, and in some ways, it’s easy to picture it being the perfect car for a child, if children were allowed to drive. The Smart for Jeremy seems to take that notion one step further by adding wings to one of the smallest cars on the roads. Smart for Jeremy wasn’t created for kids though, it was designed with fashion designer Jeremy Scott in mind as he loves sticking wings on things.

There’s nothing wrong with trying to stand out from the crowd. Individuality should be celebrated, but sometimes car manufacturers take it a little too far with their special edition cars that nobody asked for.

The Lesser-Known Automobile Brands That Offer Awesome Rides

They are not Ferrari, BMW, or Porsche. They are the underdogs of the automobile manufacturing industry. But like any underdog, these companies also come with a few surprising products matching the quality level of A-listed four-wheelers. Here are a few of those underrated companies, who have good-quality sleek luxury models in their repertoire.

Fornasari

The roost of Bel Paese is commonly ruled by Italian giants like Ferrari and Lamborghini. Fornasari is another native carmaker to the Mediterranean country, which deserves more recognition than it gets.

But during this period, the company produced a range of impressive sports cars and high-quality SUVs, like the Racing Buggy, Gigi 311 GT, and RR99. The 3 and 4 door luxury RR series SUVs were mainly powered by Chevrolet engines, offering up to 600 or 610 hp, a 0-62 mph sprint in 4-5 seconds, and a top speed of 174 mph.
