2010 Morgan Aero SuperSports

It may look vintage with its chromed radiator grille and separate fender wings, but there is nothing remotely old-fashioned about the engineering of the Morgan Aero SuperSports — or the way it performs. Introduced for Morgan’s centenary in 2010, the Aero SuperSports was a targa top-equipped evolution of the revolutionary […]

1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88

In Corvette’s almost 70-year history, there has never been another variant like the L88, an earthshaking machine of raw, unbridled power that redefined Corvette performance and amassed a winning record in FIA and SCCA production competition that went unchallenged for years afterwards. Just as Zora Arkus-Duntov intended, the L88 left […]

Cars and Kids and Moms and Dads

When we produced our first issue of the then-Alfa Romeo Market Letter, I was 38 years old and had never had children. Now, more than three decades later, I have watched my daughter, Alexandra, and my son, Bradley, grow and prosper in this car-centric household. They both started their automotive […]

The latest stolen-supercar story hit the news recently when U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted a stolen Ferrari F50 on December 14, 2019, at the Peace Bridge Port of Entry in Buffalo, NY. Alert CBP officers noticed that some of the rivets on the dashboard VIN plate were covered in […]

Twins Peak

We were recently witness to an amazing confluence of events, where two Corsica-bodied Bugatti Type 57S cars were auctioned within a month of each other. That both of these cars should come up for auction — and sell — is a strange twist of fate indeed. The first example offered […]

Ten Years On, This Spyder Has Legs

There are certain words in a Porsche model name that give you a hint that something special is going on. “Speedster” is one, but also “Spyder.” The latter moniker harks back to the mythic mid-engined 550 Spyder, which James Dean made famous after dying in one on a California backroad […]

1994 Lancia Hyena Zagato

Utilizing Lancia’s beloved Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione as a basis, the Hyena was a collaboration between Lancia and Zagato and the brainchild of a meeting between Andrea Zagato and Paul Koot, the official Lancia importer in the Netherlands and the proprietor of Lusso Service Holland. Underneath its handcrafted aluminum bodywork, […]

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo

In BMW circles, the 2002 Turbo is known as “the Holy Grail.” A powerful and visually arresting automobile, it was akin to a holiday firework that burst upon the automotive world and then vanished, a victim of the 1974 fuel crisis that all but killed demand for performance cars. The […]
