October is here as is the latest installment of The Best of Show, Cars & Coffee Irvine.
The "Tesla" of it's time, if you're an automotive enthusiast and you don't know what a Tucker is...go rent the movie or read up on it here! So advanced for its time. The US government and the big automotive manufactures shut him down, but this car still was able to make huge technology and safety influences that we see in many cars today.
With only 47 Tuckers still existing today, seeing one driving around in public is a huge rarity. With a price tag more than most exotic cars, and just so fun to look at (check out the six exhaust pipes exiting the bumper!) it made Cars & Coffee even more special than usual.
Speaking of old manufacturers, caught this very cool Ford Model A.
Some crazy British Livery on this McLaren 650S Spyder courtesy of McLaren Newport Beach.
Starting to see more of these show up: The amazing Porsche 991 GT3 - track derived.
Generations: Lamborghini LP550-2. Hurcán and GrandDaddy Diablo VT Anniversary Edition.
Lamborghini's latest offering, the Huracán - has hit land and has everyone talking.
The last of the Gallardos: The LP570 Squadra Corse. Not for the meek. This special edition features the "Final Edition" fascia.
The interior is equally aggressive, full alcantara and carbon fiber adorn the entire cabin.
JDM-heads will recognize this sick Datsun GT-R Hako - sitting on Panasports, so period correct. The Japanese muscle car of the time...
Speaking of JDM Muscle - Can't forget Godzilla - the Nissan Skyline GTR R32.
A few Toyota MR-2 Turbo's showed up. I have a special place in my heart for these since Iused to own a '93 MR-2 Turbo...which left me stranded twice in Fullerton due to timing belt issues, ah the good ol' days!
A couple of classic American hot rod's to keep up with the JDM muscle...
DTM Classic - BMW E30 M3 on BBS RS mesh.
What's wrong with Wagons? Don't mess with this wagon...it's a full BMW M5 Conversion!

One more BMW M3, E36 chassis - an ultra rare lightweight version!
This amazing Gruppe B Porsche Racecar showed up in the Marquee Area, stealing the show.
