1968 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA 1300 Junior

At the beginning of the 1960s, Alfa Romeo was enjoying a return to success in motorsport. Having retired from competition in the preceding decade to focus on industrial production, the famous marque from Milan reignited its competitive streak with victories for the Giulia Sprint GTA and 1750 GTAm in the […]

1974 Citroën SM Coupe

Combining Citröen’s advanced chassis technology and Maserati’s unrivaled engine know-how, the SM (Série Maserati) featured DS-style hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension; power-assisted all-around disc brakes; self-centering steering; and steered headlamps. Maserati was responsible for the 90-degree V6 engine, and after some juggling of bore/stroke dimensions, a capacity of 2,670 cc was settled […]

1953 Fiat 8V Berlinetta

It would be fair to say that the Fiat 8V caused a stir when it was introduced at the 1952 Geneva Motor Show. The reaction it provoked was wholly positive, but it came as a surprise when Fiat — at the time renowned for mzaking cars in high volume, such […]

1938 Bugatti Type 57C Atalante Coupe

When the Bugatti Type 57 first hit the pavement back in 1934, there was simply nothing that could compare to it. Designed by founder Ettore Bugatti’s son, Jean, the Type 57 captured the swanky allure of Art Deco styling with vast curving lines that concluded in sharp, striking angles. Like […]

1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Record Sport Cabriolet

Factory archives note this to be a T26 with the potent Grand Sport 4.5-liter power unit, and specifically the more-desirable aluminum-head version, of which a mere three dozen were equipped. Talbot-Lago’s designation for these was T26 Record Sport. Figoni’s production record states that they received the Record Sport chassis from […]

1951 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Super Sport Villa d’Este

Bridging the gap between the pre- and post-war eras, Alfa Romeo’s 6C 2500 debuted in 1939 as the third series of Vittorio Jano’s legendary 6-cylinder Alfa Romeos. Capable of 160 km/h, these cars benefited from four-wheel independent suspension and could be had in a handful of levels of tuning. This […]

1959 Abarth 750 GT Zagato “Double Bubble”

Based on the chassis of the humble Fiat 600, the Abarth 750 GT Zagato is one of the most interesting and highly regarded examples of Italian etceterini. A joy to drive and to own, it allows access to multiple racing events all over the world. This 1959 example is eminently […]

1949 Georges Irat Labourdette Prototype

Georges Irat launched the first car bearing his own name in 1921. Manufactured by Automobiles Georges Irat SA at Chatou, Seine-et-Oise, France, this was a fast tourer powered by a 2.0-liter, overhead-valve, 4-cylinder engine designed by Maurice Gaultier, formerly with Delage. Unusually, Irat manufactured the entire car — bodies excepted […]

1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 Sprint Speciale

The shapely Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale shares the potent Giulia underpinnings and engine of the Veloce-chassis Alfas, from which it derives the “Giulia” part of its name. Inspiration for the curvaceous body shape was derived from Carrozzeria Touring’s legendary “Disco Volante” racing cars, as well as Italian design house Bertone’s […]
