Lightbulb TheAutoImageThread2|Pics needn't be self-photographed

Hey guys, apparently you cannot post images in the Auto Image thread that have not been shot by yourself. This leads to its scope being limited to cars that we already see on our roads(with the exception of a few members who live abroad). Thus, there is no place to post pics. and discuss any other interesting auto-images that one may come across.
Practically speaking, there are no conditions to the pictures that can be put up, however the following are preferred:-

1)Vehicles that have been photographed extremely well.
2)Vehicles with unique Modifications(that look good, else can be posted in weird and wacky mod jobs thread), great/unique Bodykits/Spoilers/Paint Jobs/Artwork etc.
3)Rare or lesser known vehicles.
4)Cars that have, in any way, history associated with them.
A small description along with the picture would be nice.

In other words, something that you think is Unique/Interesting/Worth commenting and/or discussing by other members

Now that we've gotten that out of the way,
Some pursuit cars used by the Japanese Police:-

An Invicta S1
How many of you knew about this marquee? Invicta is a British automobile manufacturer. They made some cars from 1925-50. In the early 2000s, the marque was resurrected again, producing the Invicta S1, at a factory in Chippenham, Wiltshire, England. The car is powered by 4.6 or 6.0 litre engines supplied by Ford's Special Vehicles Team (SVT) in America which were tuned by Invicta to deliver up to 600bhp and has a claimed top speed of upwards of 200mph. The car boasts "the world's first one piece carbon fibre body to increase vehicle rigidity and minimise weight" and claims to have "the strongest chassis ever tested in the UK". The range prices start at 106,000 and finish at 160,000.
The car features AP racing 6-pot(front) and 4-pot(rear) main braking system with ventilated and cross drilled race spec discs, an independent handbrake system by Brembo, fully adjustable shock absorbers with double-wishbone race suspension, a BTR Hydratrak limited-slip race differential, 50/50 weight distribution and a tubular space-frame chassis and rollcage.

A Mitsubishi FTO with dragon Vinyl on it.
This was a car made exclusively for the Japanese market but later sold in the UK and New Zealand. This pic was taken in Florida by a friend at a car meet. Apparently the Vinyl on it isn't legal(too shiny or something, doesnt matter, its a RHD anyway) therefore the owner got it out for a very short while and it disappeared fast:-

The Mazda RX7 SpiritR, easily the most collectable and arguably the best one ever produced, seen here with a Veilside body kit:-

The Awesome Nismo Nissan GTR, which entered in the Super GT race series in the GT500 class for the 2008 season, replacing the Nissan 350Z.
The car itself went on to win the opening race of the 2008 Super GT season at Suzuka scoring a one-two finish for Nissan.
The dominant performances in the opening race has led to all GT-Rs being applied a 50kg weight penalty in addition to the race weight penalty under the Special Adjustment of Performance under the Super GT regulations. In race two, the GT-R repeated their 1-2 result in Suzuka despite the race winning car of team Nismo carrying a 100kg weight penalty making it only the 3rd team in JGTC/Super GT history to do so. The last time this feat was achieved was 10 years ago by Nismo Skyline GT-R racing under the same number 23.
