Special Edition Vehicles: 5 of the best

Each year there are only a handful of cars that stand out amongst the rest, and it is those models that then get a special edition version. You know that when you get one of these special edition vehicles they will not only look better, but will also offer greater performance and handling. We thought this would be the perfect time to choose what we believe are five of the best.

Top of the list has to be the 2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Special Edition. Ok, so we know that this is not a practical one, but we had to give this the number one spot, as it is at the pinnacle of what we can achieve on an engineering level for a production car. The $1.6 million price is proof that Bugatti has thrown everything into the design of the Veyron SS, and being the fastest production car is proof of that.

If you are looking for a much cheaper limited edition model then how about the 2012 Porsche Cayman S Black Edition? Everything about this car has a dark side’ those air intakes and large wheels are ready for whatever the road can throw at you. There are only 500 models in total, and all have 330 horsepower at their disposal. The best feature has to be the price, as $67.500 is more respectable.

Sticking with that black theme is the 2012 Volkswagen Black Turbo Launch Edition. Now some of you may think that spending $24,950 on a Beetle is a lot of money, but not when you consider that the engine powering this little beast is a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that pushes out 200hp. Both the clutch and transmission has been upgraded to handle the extra power, as has the wheels and brakes.

Next up we have the 2011 BMW M3 “Frozen Black” Special Edition, which were limited to just 20. The $81,825 price tag does give you a lot of features for the money though, which includes the Competition Package. However, the Frozen Black Edition takes things up a notch with its Premium Package 2, which means that BMW has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into this model.

There is one car that has spawned a number of limited edition models since it went into production. That car is the Fiat 500, and over the past few of years we have seen a great number of specials, but choosing the best is a little tough. There was the Abarth, Matt Black, Gucci, Pink, Prima Edizione and many more.

What is the best limited edition vehicle ever?
