Take a Trip to Concorso d’Eleganza – the World’s Most Exclusive Collector Car Show

This 1925 Rolls-Royce round door was discovered rusting in a New Jersey junkyard. Several owners and a massive overhaul later, it's considered among the world's elite collector cars. Pebble Beach may be the most famous among collector car shows. But it can’t touch the Concorso d’Eleganza in terms of exclusivity. Just 60 of the world’s rarest and most impressive antique cars were invited to this year’s event, held at the ritzy Villa d’Este hotel on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como. And while each of these cars would fetch a massive sum, a few are back-from-the-brink stories that rival any great barn find. Take the 1925 Rolls-Royce Round Door coupe for instance. Back in 1950-something, this mind-boggling beauty was rusting away in a New Jersey...

Earlier this month, his Rocket EV bike hit 201 miles per hour in 6.94 seconds in an exhibition sprint at Virginia Motorsports Park. Originally built in 2010 with help from the famous Orange County Choppers in a two-episode television special, the Rocket made history as the first EV to break the quarter mile in less than seven seconds.

Meet Team E3 Racing Tier 1 Winner Dan Bunting

Team E3 Racing Tier 1 winner Dan Bunting has finished in the top 10 of the APR series each of the past four years. Dan Bunting’s competitive boat racing debut was not exactly all he had hoped for. In his very first race, the UIM World Championships in Marietta, Ohio, he barrel-rolled his boat on the eight qualifying lap. The experience might have been enough to send someone of lesser resolve paddling back to shore for a new landlubber’s hobby. But as a career police officer, Bunting had what it took to tough it out and try again. That’s why he’s a new member of Team E3 Racing. Bunting quickly got his pride and his boat back into shape and headed back into the water in time for the next race. Long story short, he ended his rookie season in 10th place on the...
