Representing a paradigm shift in Ferrari’s design language, the 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta, later nicknamed the “Daytona,” was first introduced to the world at the 1968 Paris Motor Show.
An early European-specification example with Plexiglas headlight covers, this Daytona was originally finished in Blu Dino over a Nero interior. Completed by the factory in September of 1969, it was immediately shipped to Maranello Concessionaires in England. It is believed that when new, this car was likely used personally by Colonel Ronnie Read More
An original, matching-numbers example, chassis 707 boasts a totally original interior. The leather seats display a light patina commensurate with the limited mileage covered. Incredibly, all carpets, including the boot, are original to the car, as are the Maserati-embossed floor mats, and under-bonnet and boot lid quilting.
There are 26,103 miles on the odometer.
The hood and hood cover are original, and the car also comes with an additional new hood cover for everyday use to avoid possible damage to Read More
British entrepreneur, car designer and engineer Lee Noble founded Noble Automotive Ltd. in 1999.
Using experience from his time spent at Ascari, Noble quickly established his company’s commitment to designing and manufacturing high-performance sports cars with a mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. As chief designer, he oversaw the evolution of the company’s first model, the M10, into the M12, which was first produced in 2000. This soon became a benchmark for its incredibly compliant ride, pin-sharp handling and impressive power delivery, receiving Read More
Built in just five weeks, Harry Clayton Stutz’s first car did sufficiently well at the 1911 Indianapolis 500, finishing 11th, despite numerous stops for fresh tires, to prompt its creator to set up the Ideal Motor Car Company to manufacture the Stutz.
The first production models were closely based on the successful Indianapolis car and featured proprietary Wisconsin engines and Stutz’s own rear 3-speed transaxle. The Bearcat remained a fixture of the range until the end of the 1924 season, Read More
When I start fidgeting around wondering which car I should get next, my friends call it “car knitting.”
Currently, I’ve got a tidy, tightly focused collection of Alfas, ranging from a 1958 Giulietta Sprint Veloce to a 1967 Duetto. All the cars are in fine fettle or approaching it.
The cars that have been calling out to me are an Alfa Junior Zagato, an Austin-Healey BT7 and a Porsche 356B coupe.
Here are the pluses and minuses of each:
Let’s Read More
Have a fast car? Like to show your friends how fast it goes by posting speedometer selfies on Facebook and other social media sites?
You could be in for a rude knock from the Man with a Badge who just wants to ask you a few routine questions — or even worse, a process server looking to Hoover your wallet dry.
“Have I said too much?” Yup. That’s what over-posting looks like — when you share incriminating information online that Read More
If you have a hankering for an older Multi-Purpose Vehicle (old enough to predate the whole soccer-mom SUV thing), but feel that you missed the boat on first-generation Ford Broncos or 1969–72 Chevy Blazers, I have good news for you.
There’s one out there made in large enough quantities that availability is good, parts support is excellent, and it is still priced at chump change: the 1980–96 full-size Ford Bronco.
The genesis of the Bronco line, the first generation built Read More
- Original left-hand-drive delivery
- Matching numbers and colors
- No-expense-spared restoration from 2015 to ’16
- 4-speed manual/overdrive gearbox
Left-hand-drive chassis 230671, a desirable BN2 model with 4-speed and overdrive, was completed in March 1956 for export to the United States. The car was originally finished in Healey Blue with matching interior trim and convertible top, and it left the factory equipped with the optional laminated windscreen and a heater.
In 1992 the Read More
Lancia commissioned Zagato to produce a more aerodynamic and sportier version of the Fulvia that also could be used in hillclimbs and track events. This model, designed by Ercole Spada, was technically advanced with its narrow-angle V4 tilted to lower the center of gravity. With 4,000 units produced, it is one of Zagato´s biggest successes.
The car on offer is a Series 2, which was fitted with a steel body and an upgraded 5-speed gearbox instead of the first series’ Read More
