Icon Electric 1949 Mercury Coupe

Jonathan Wardīs company, Icon, has been bringing a fresh perspective to custom vehicle design, with amazing custom rebuilds of classic vehicles of the past. The latest gem to roll out of their workshop is this spectacular 1949 Mercury Coupe, a car that looks old on the outside, but is new on the inside. Part of the Derelict series, the unique car has an untouched-looking exterior, with an overdone patina that looks cool over the greyish green paint. Underneath tough, is where the work has been done, it is now powered by a transmission-less dual electric motor that produces 470 lb-ft of torque and 400-hp. And thanks to a Tesla Performance 85kWh battery, it is capable of 150 to 200 miles of range and a 90 minute full recharge capability. Inside, there are lovely period-appropriate fabrics and leather details, electric windows, digital gauges with a vintage design, new switches, bezels and so forth, which operate modern components.

Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe

The Jaguar E-Type was once considered by Enzo Ferrari "the most beautiful car ever made," and we are inclined to agree. The Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe was a sleeker, prettier version, and only two were ever assembled including the rarest of them all – the 1963 Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe affectionately known as the 49FXN.
