The special version “40 Years Special Edition” differs from the standard car with a new special red body color and checkered interior trim. It could have ended there, but Opel decided to give each car a pair of checkered socks. Perhaps they wanted to emphasize the spirit of the 80s when this car first appeared.

History's Strangest Special Editions

The Fiat 500 compact hatchback has gained popularity for its timeless looks and low cost. Such a car could not bypass the Italian fashion house Gucci.

A distinctive feature of the special edition Fiat 500 by Gucci are the stripes on the sides and rear of the car, which are made in Gucci's signature colors. They can also be found in interior decoration.

According to the idea, the car could be a great addition to a new handbag or shoes. This modification could be bought in Ukraine. In our country, it cost UAH 212,000 more than the standard model. Is it worth paying such a sum for minor improvements?

Mercedes-Benz is famous for its luxurious cars, which bring great driving pleasure. In 1998, McLaren Mercedes driver Mika Hakkinen became the world champion in Formula 1 for the first time. In honor of this event, a special version for the road car was created.

For unknown reasons, instead of the charged AMG models, Mercedes-Benz released a special version of the Hakkinen Edition for its initial A-Class model. The compact and clumsy hatchback is clearly not designed for fast driving.

The compact hatchback Nissan Juke appeared in 2010 and immediately became the object of controversy among motorists because of its radical appearance. It has never been powered by powerful engines, and the driving experience has not been exciting.

In 2012, Nissan decided to boost the model's image by creating a track version. Crossover improvements have gone too far.

Under the hood of the Nissan Juke R is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine from the GT-R supercar with 600 hp. The modified crossover accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 3.5 seconds.

In 1996, Volkswagen created an unusual special version of the “Harlequin” for the 3rd generation Golf hatchback. It is distinguished by the unusual coloring of car parts.

Doors, bumpers, roof and hood were randomly painted in four different colors. So the owners of the model could stand out from the rest.

The client ordered a car from the manufacturer, and at the factory one was assembled from body parts for four different cars. The result was a unique car that attracts the attention of all people around. Later, the company liked the idea so much that such a version was also offered for the Volkswagen Polo.

The Strangest Special Edition Cars Ever

What do McLaren supercars and the Ford Mustang muscle car have in common? Surprisingly, in the late 70s, the American auto giant turned to the British automaker for help to create a new sports car.

Due to the fuel crisis in the 70s, Ford faced enormous difficulties, since before that they equipped many models with huge V8 engines. Therefore, they urgently needed to work on less powerful, but economical units.

In order not to disappoint Mustang fans, a special version was offered for the third generation of the model, jointly created with McLaren. As a result, the car received a new body kit, and a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 190 hp was placed under the hood. The attempt was unsuccessful, as it was not enough to save the image of the model.
