Some buyers demand something out of the ordinary

Looking to really rev up your spring? Specialty Vehicle Engineering has some exciting news for Camaro enthusiasts.

The specialty shop announced it will offer its popular 2020 Yenko Camaro/SC Stage I in not just a coupe but a convertible body style, too.

The cars' foundation is 1SS or 2SS Camaro that receives an upgraded, heavy-duty, 10-speed automatic transmission. Under the hood is a custom-built, 416-cubic-inch, supercharged LT-1-based engine that delivers 1,000 horsepower. There are also features like GM's Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo six-piston front and 4-piston rear brakes, a performance-tuned suspension and upgraded engine and transmission cooling.

Inside, there are Recaro Performance front seats. Should customers choose to retain the stock SS seats, SVE offers a retro-cool optional black and white houndstooth seat trim package.

The exterior of the car gets adorned with heritage-inspired side and hood stripes while the carbon fiber hood paint matches the body color. The grille is adorned with SVE's retooled Yenko crest, which is also affixed to the fenders and rear panel. And to get that stoplight challenger to think twice, horsepower callouts are mounted front and center on the cowl.

Only 25 of these hot heritage haulers (including both coupe and convertible styles) will be built. A slew of color and stripe combinations are offered, and each is numbered, receives a special certificate and comes with a warranty. Expect pricing for the vehicles to land in the six-figure mark.

If you've got a heavy right foot and a love for wind in your hair, this muscle machine is for you.

Harley-Davidson special edition paint

Harley-Davidson is giving Road Glide Special customers a striking way to stand out by offering a radical custom paint scheme.

Called the Eagle Eye Special Edition paint option, the look adds a brilliant yellow base color that is topped with a glossy clear coat finish. Finishing touches include a black eagle graphic with spread wings flowing across the right side of the fuel tank to the right fairing.

The left side of the motorcycle sports Harley's simple bar and shield badge.

The brand's script is presented in black on the outside edge of both saddlebags, which are color-matched to the rest of the bike.

The cosmetic package costs $1,495 and is only available on Road Glide Specials.

Jeep North Edition

Old Man Winter has, for the most part, been fairly kind to us this season. When he does change his mind, Jeep will be ready, releasing a new North Edition across its lineup.

The special edition comes standard with all the frost-friendly goodies drivers want when the weather gets cold and ice abounds. As such, there's all-season or all-terrain tires for maximum grip, power heated mirrors and, should slides occur, tow hooks.

Inside, heated seats and steering wheel warm occupants and all-weather floor mats catch slush and snow. The all-important remote start is included.

To help drivers keep an eye on the skies, the vehicle's Uconnect 8.4-inch touch-screen system comes equipped with Sirius XM satellite radio's Travel Link Weather. Jeep's Trail Rated kit (containing such items as tow straps, gloves and more) is included, too.

These winter warriors are available for sale with the Renegade version showing up in showrooms in March.
