This Paul Smith-Designed Porsche Oozes Cool

British designer Paul Smith is one of the most stylish men in the world, and a true creative genius who has managed to stay on the cutting edge of style ever since he opened his first shop in 1960. Bold stripes, known as the "Artist Stripe", have always been his hallmark and he's applied them to many fashion items as well as various design icons over the years. Until now, however, he's never done so with an iconic Porsche 911. In collaboration with U.K. Porsche customizer Sports Purpose, they have just produced one of the most beautiful art cars ever made and it's one we'd kill to own.

Paul Newman's Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

Recently restored to showroom condition via an exhaustive 6,000-hour process, this 1954 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing is desirable both for its history and its lineage. Purchased in 1957 from its original owner by film icon Paul Newman, it remained in California when he moved to Connecticut in the 1960s. It changed hands several times over the years, finally ending up with Paris-based dealer Classic Sports Leicht, where it underwent the aforementioned restoration.

This Public Garage Has a Secret

Apparently not everyone is in agreement, as one Reddit user found out. The user, who goes by “philsebbens,” snapped these shots of uber-rare vehicles collecting dust in a public garage on his lunch break.

The Legacy HJ-45

The latest from Legacy Overland is as practical — and true to its roots — as you could find in the crowded 4x4 restomod market. The base for the project is a bit of a rarity: A 1978 Toyota HJ-45 long-bed truck. Not nearly as common as its short-wheelbase siblings, the HJ-45 platform makes this project truly unique. A ground-up restoration saw the truck completely disassembled and stripped to its bare frame and refinished in black and military green. The inline six-cylinder diesel was totally rebuilt, with a 2" lift and bead-lock tires added. The result is a restoration that p[erfectly walks the line between classic style and modern reliability.

We have featured quite a few amazing vintage SUV rebuilds on our site in the past, but few inspire our wanderlust like this New Legend x Iron & Resin 1972 International Scout II Runner Series.
