One of the more fascinating featured of the 2009 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is the unique diamond weave carbon fiber finish. Developed by Koenigsegg, the unusual finish has been patented by the car company. Koenigsegg planned to make three of its concept car, the Trevita, but the complexity of the manufacturing process led them to scrap one of the cars and only produce two. With a price tag of $4.8 million, the Koenigsegg Trevita is one of the most expensive sports cars ever made.

Carroll Shelby was required by FIA racing to build at least 100 of his 427 Cobras but by 1966, he had only completed 53 of them. Shelby abandoned his efforts and joined forces with Ford to design a car that could beat the Ferraris at Le Mans. Yet Shelby still wanted to fulfill his obligation. In 1988, he hired a Corvette restored to finish five of the incomplete Shelbys, which he promptly sold. In the early 1990s, he set about finishing the job and completed the remaining Shelby Cobras, like this one here.
