Top 10: Weirdest Special Editions Ever

AMC Gremlin Levi’s Edition (1973)

This compact American had the pants on. Literally, because the AMC Gremlin Levi’s Edition seats were not only upholstered in denim fabric, but also finished like real jeans, with orange-brown stitching and copper rivets. Two of them sat in the middle of the backrest. It must have been nice boarding, on a sweltering summer day.

Mercedes A-Klasse Mika Häkkinen Edition (1999)

We fully understand that Mercedes wanted to celebrate Mika Häkkinen’s (1998 and 1999) Formula 1 Championships. But don’t do that with an A-class, the lousy hatchback that so embarrassingly stumbled over the moose test. In addition, the AMG wheels, the dual exhaust and the West McLaren Mercedes livery hide the fact that there is only a meager 1.6’je with 102 hp under the hood.

Cadillac Seville by Gucci (1979)

This is just handsome. A Cadillac Seville of this type – with that strangely sloping trunk – was already Jacobse and Van Es, but was made a lot more vulgar by the Italian fashion house Gucci. American bad taste at its best, with ridiculous wire wheels, gold Gucci logos and a disfigured vinyl roof.

Citroën 2CV 007 (1981) buy cheap online

In the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only, Roger Moore came ‘shaken, not stirred’ from a Citroën 2CV, not least because the yellow Duck was full of bullet holes. And you got those bullet holes as stickers with this special 007 edition. He was as yellow as the four-wheeled movie star and had some huge 007 pistol logos on the sides, but not his four-cylinder GS boxer engine.

Triumph TR7 Coca Cola (1978)

It is strange that a Ford Mustang 7Up ever existed, but the Triumph TR7 Coca Cola takes the cake. It emerged in the late 1970s from a collaboration between Coca Cola and Levi Strauss. That means he combined an exterior like a Coke can with an interior like jeans. Serious.

Fiat Panda Italia 90 (1990)

Hubcaps like soccer balls… We had never seen them before 1990 and luckily we haven’t seen them since. Although, the mischievous Fiat Panda could actually have them. This Italia 90 was – the name says it all – released in honor of the World Cup. The small mascot on the c-pillar is called Ciao by the way.

Imperial FS Limited Edition (1981)

What Lexus is to Toyota, Imperial was to Chrysler: a luxury brand. It existed from 1955 to 1975 and was revived in 1981. Frank Sinatra — a personal friend of Chrysler boss Lee Iacocca — appeared in the commercials and even sang a special song. This FS Limited Edition was ‘Ol’ Blue Eyes’ blue and came with sixteen Sinatra cassette tapes.

Lincoln Town Car Jack Nicklaus Signature Series (1997)

Jack who? Let’s just say Lincoln knew his clientele well. Because the Town Car – an old-fashioned body-on-frame sedan – was, of course, especially popular among wealthy, retired Americans who played golf. Just like Jack Nicklaus, one of the greatest golfers in history.

Opel Speedster Scorpions Edition (2003)

“Tee me! To the magic of the mooment. On a gloreee night.” The Scorpions sang it in 1990, but it wasn’t until thirteen years later that they got a vehicle to drive through that ‘gloreee night’: the Opel Speedster Scorpions Edition. The special feature was the Gibson guitar – with autographs of the band members on it – who got all sixty buyers.

Volkswagen Polo Harlequin (1995)

curious? Yes. But so much fun. Volkswagen introduced the Polo Harlekin in 1995, with a body in four colors: red, blue, yellow and green. Funny: the Harlekin didn’t roll off the production line in multicolor. Volkswagen built several cars in the required colors, after which mechanics manually exchanged the body panels.
