Only 1 of 6 finished in Grabber Yellow for the 1970 model year.

A highly desired car that is a favorite among collectors, the classic Shelby GT500s with the heavy-duty suspension and Cobra Jet 428 V8 engine are rare gems to behold. In fact, only 335 convertibles were built between 1969 and 1970. Making this bold beauty even rarer is that this ‘special paint’ Shelby GT500 convertible ordered from the factory is just one of nine in Grabber Yellow (3470-A). To narrow that number down even more, this is just one of 6 finished in the bold hue for 1970. The good news is that RM Sotheby’s is offering the opportunity to take home this stunning and rare 1970 Shelby GT500 428 Cobra Jet Convertible for yourself in their Online Only: Driving into Summer auction from May 21st – 29th.

Renault Could Kill The Alpine A110 After Just Three Years

The company is looking to cut costs.

Renault, like many automakers right now, are looking to cut costs to survive the coronavirus pandemic. The French automaker, part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, is preparing to unveil a cost-cutting plan that, according to a new report from Automotive News Europe, calls for the closing of several factories. One of those possible closures is Renault’s Dieppe, France, plant where it builds the limited-production Alpine A110 sports car.

This could put the A110 out to pasture just three years after its introduction at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The factory employs about 400 people, according to the publication, and it’s one of the company’s smallest factories in the alliance. The report doesn’t say if Renault plans to move A110 production out of Dieppe, though in September 2018, the company had a 14-month waiting period for the new car, at the

By Anthony Esposito, Daina Beth Solomon and Sharay Angulo

MEXICO CITY, May 13 (Reuters) – President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will lay out a roadmap on Wednesday for Mexico to re-open its economy, with a focus on the automotive sector whose supply chains are closely interwoven with U.S. carmakers.

The U.S. government and automotive companies have called on Mexico to reopen factories serving the U.S. market, despite the Latin American nation still dealing with a rising number of infections from the coronavirus pandemic. Mexico on Tuesday registered 353 coronavirus deaths in its most lethal day yet.

Mexico sends 80% of its exports to the U.S. and became the United States’ biggest trade partner last year, with bilateral commerce worth over $600 billion.

Lopez Obrador has been eager to get Mexico’s businesses firing again amid forecasts the economy could contract by as much as 10% in 2020, plunging the country into
