Amongst the myriad of mind-boggling selections that are set to rev the hearts of car enthusiasts at the Mecum Houston auction, a handful stand out for one reason or another. From the pulse-quickening sexiness of the Corvette to the nostalgia-evoking lines of the DeTomaso Pantera GTS, it seems Mecum is indeed putting the “sports” back in “classic sports cars.”

2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 LingenfelterOn Lot F190 is a stunning 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Lingenfelter boasting 750 horsepower with the rare LPE Package and six-speed transmission. The Lingenfelter enhancements boost horsepower numbers from 638 to the aforementioned stump-tugging 750, while other Lingenfelter touches include CNC porting and polishing of the LS9 cylinder heads, multi-angle valve job with cc chambers and GT0 camshaft.

1974 DeTomaso Pantera GTSOn Lot S130.1 is a charming 1974 DeTomaso Pantera GTS with only 763 miles and a five-speed gearbox. Introduced in Modena, Italy in March 1970, the DeTomaso Pantera began arriving in Lincoln Mercury showrooms in America in late 1971, with one of the most desirable Panteras in existence today being this 1974 GTS model driven just 763 original miles. Identified by its flared fenders, wider Campagnolo Magnum Sport alloy wheels and tires and prominent GTS badging, its burgundy paint is highlighted with black hood, trunk and lower body side accents.

1994 Pontiac Trans Am 25th AnniversaryOn Lot F105 sits a gorgeous 1994 Pontiac Trans Am 25th Anniversary boasting 350/275 horsepower and 11,000 miles. This head-turning American-made supercoupe, coveted by so many in this particular bodystyle during the model’s run, sports a stunning white paint finish and convertible top with a 5.7-liter engine and automatic transmission. This was one of only 250 25th Anniversary Trans Am convertibles produced and comes with its original manifest, air conditioning, power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
