1970 saw Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design reveal his 4th concept car, the 1970 Giugiaro Porsche Tapiro. The car was designed with double gull-wing doors and was based on the Porsche 914 chassis using the same 2.4 litre flat-6 producing 220 bhp and 7200 rpm.
The 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB is one of the less famous classic Ferraris, it’s not looked back on with quite the same rose-tinted glasses as the 250 GTO or the Daytona and I think this is an oversight.
I’m going to need someone to explain, or try to explain, what the hell is going on in this picture. Click the image for the large size.
This beautiful 1962 Moretti 2500 SS Coupe with coachwork by Carrozzeria Moretti is one of only 20 to have ever been made, it’s powered by a 2500cc carburettor fed straight-6 with 170hp.
This is a rather unique motorcar, it gives the first impression of being an early ’60s Zagato but it’s actually based on a DB7 Vantage from the late ’90s. Coachbuilders Evanta stripped the donor DB7 down to almost nothing…
This is quite a remarkable Aston Martin DB4, although it isn’t one of the highly coveted DB4 Zagato models it has a history and a styling all it’s own.
It isn’t everyday that a mint condition, factory spec Mustang arrives on the auction block. This ’65 Ford Mustang underwent a 2 year restoration to exact, factory specification, right down to the fully functioning AM/FM radio, heater and window defroster.
Luigi Villoresi and Alberto Ascari are perhaps the 2 of the most famous Italian F1 drivers from the mid-20th century, it’s very rare to find a picture of them together despite the fact that they travelled the world racing in some of the first sanctioned Formula 1 races after WW2.
The Buick Wildcat II was a pretty revolutionary design for Buick, it featured a 220hp V8 and a full fibreglass body, sadly it never saw a production run but I can imagine it giving the 1950’s Corvettes a run for their money.
The Jensen Interceptor is on the top 10 list of exotic cars I could potentially own, my other top 10 list features cars like the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato and the Jaguar XKSS but unless I get really good at hot-wiring, they probably aren’t that realistic.
It saddens me that I can’t think of a single modern actor who possesses the same gasoline powered spirit of Paul Newman, Steve McQueen or James Dean. Not even one.
The AC 428 Coupé or “AC Frua” is a singularly multicultural motorcar, the frame was built in England, the body in Italy and the V8 in America. AC Cars, most famous for the British/American Cobra, decided in 1965 to use the new, strengthened frame from the Cobra to build a GT car capable of competing with Ferrari, Maserati and Aston Martin.
