Here’s a new super car you may not be familiar with. Monte Carlo Automobile celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2013 and they did so in style, launching a new super car called the Rascasse – named for a corner of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit (it’s toward the end of the lap before getting to the pits).

The engine in this car is a Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph-sourced 5.4-liter V-12 mounted behind the driver. It produces 500 horsepower. The engine car run on gasoline, methanol, or natural gas. The hard top is removable and I honestly think this is a fantastic looking car – especially in roadster/targa/convertible form. And the interior is really cool, too with a Riva/Chris Craft boat theme. If Cary Grant were to cruise around Monte Carlo in a super car, this would be it.

The car was introduced at the inconspicuous Belgrade Motor Show in Serbia in 2013. The company plans to build 15 of them – and that kind of breaks one of the few rules I have about featuring cars on this site: they must be out of production. This one hasn’t really started yet. What you’re buying here is a brand new car that probably hasn’t even been built. It is expected to bring between $210,000-$250,000. Click here for more info and here for the rest of Coys’ lineup.

Update: Sold $114,560.
