This F1 race car has SIX wheels! No, it is not photo shopped . As a matter of fact, the car even set a few track records. In creation of this car, the purpose is to improve straight-line speed and traction out of corners due to increased rubber contact. However, the car was also said to be “bloody heavy” because there was so many hardware on the car.

Cadillac Le Monstre
I don’t know about you, but this looks like a tank to me. They called this “The monster” but it met all rules and regulations on the race track. American sportsman and legend, Briggs Cunnigham took this car to Le Mans in 1950. His creations were the first to compete at the 24 Hours and finished at 10th place.
1970 Ferrari (Pininfarina) 512 S Modulo
Many says that this car is the weirdest looking Ferrari ever built in history. This space-ship looking car is one of a kind. It is a race car and got its fame when it ran against the Porsche 917 at Le Mans. It was debuted at the Geneva Motor show in year 1970 with its original black paint. However, they changed it to white and it became an icon ever since. Today, the car is acquired by collector, James Glickenhaus.
1932 Ford Speedster
This Ford looks amazingly low and long. The long front made the back seemed rather small. This creation is the brainchild of Edsel Ford. Today, this car is known as a “Hot Rod” icon. There was no top, bumpers or running boards. The car was purchased by John Cox who had no idea what the value and the history behind the car was and completely disassembled it. Shortly after that, it was realized to be Edsel’s creation of the Speedster. After Cox’s passing, the current owner took over 5 years to restore the car to its original condition.
