Vintage! GLAS GT | Drive it!
It looks like a Ferrari, but hails from a small town in Bavaria: the GLAS GT. Hans Glas first produced farm machinery in Dingolfing, but in the 1950s he branched out into motor scooters and small cars like the Goggomobil. Later he created the sporty GLAS GT, which featured an Italian-made body. Drive it! meets Uwe Gusen, who owns two rare GLAS GTs. One is a 1700 GT coupe and the other a 1300 GT convertible, of which just 363 were ever made. More Information: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798

The Audi R8 has always been one of the most eye-catching cars on the road. Now the German carmaker has released the convertible version, and it is also turning heads. In fact, the technical data alone is enough to make those heads start to spin.The 10-cylinder engine gives the Spyder 525 horsepower from just 5.2 liters of displacement. The car can rocket from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 313 km/h. The suspension is tight, but forgiving -- unlike the prices, which, in Germany, start at €156,000.
