1970 Maserati Ghibli Coupe

The styling of the Daytona, while certainly attractive, has not achieved the timeless elegance of the Ghibli

A strong contender for the “Most Handsome Car of the 1960s” title, Maserati’s Ghibli debuted at the Turin Motor Show in November of 1966. Styled at Ghia by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Ghibli rivaled the Ferrari Daytona for straight-line performance, while beating it for price and, arguably, looks.

1938 Talbot-Lago T150-C Speciale Teardrop

Decried by some as vulgar when new—the British press notably nicknamed the coachwork “Phony and Flashy”—time has been kind to Figoni’s work.

While all Teardrops were quite unique, chassis 90034 may well be the most unique of all. It is the only example built on the longer Lago Speciale chassis—some 11.8 inches longer than the SS. In the world of important French cars, provenance is second only to design, and 90034 stands as one of the Read More

1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale Coupe

In today’s vintage racing, with the mechanical upgrades available, the SS can be a more formidable mount than was the case in period

This left-hand drive Giulia Sprint Speciale was built in 1964 and raced in period. It was subsequently restored and race-prepared in the 1980s for Stefano d’Amico, President of the Registro Italiano Alfa Romeo, by well-known Roman specialist Franco Angellini. Modifications from original specification include stiffening the chassis, fitting a Colotti limited-slip differential and close-ratio gearbox, Read More

1954 Lancia Aurelia B20 Series 4

This rare Nardi converted and meticulously restored Lancia Aurelia B20GT Series IV was imported into the Netherlands from Nice (France) approximately 20 years ago.

1939 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Berlinetta Aerodinamica

1928 Bugatti Type 35C Grand Prix

Almost 80 years after its introduction, the Bugatti Type 35 remains one of the most iconic and historically significant cars to have ever raced.

The Type 35 is renowned for its featherweight chassis and low center of gravity. These factors combined made these relatively diminutive GP cars extremely manoeuvrable, especially on short Read More

1935 Avions Voisin C25 Aérodyne

With a price of 88,000 francs when new, the purchase of an Aérodyne truly represented a small fortune, compared with the 70,000 francs asked for a Bugatti 57 Galibier or with the 22,000 francs necessary to buy one of the very new Citroën Traction 11 Légère sedans…

The car was revolutionary in form, with keel-shaped fenders and a hood integrated in the streamline shape very much then in fashion, but it was also technically revolutionary with its sliding roof powered Read More

1925 Bugatti Brescia Type 22 Roadster

This car has become one of the most celebrated of all Bugattis, having lain submerged beneath the waters of Lake Maggiore in Switzerland for more than 70 years. Its whereabouts had been known to the local dive club for years, but in February 2008 a tragedy occurred which led to its retrieval.

The nucleus of the new company was comprised of Carlo Chiti and Giotto Bizzarrini, who were both involved in the development of the Ferrari GTO and, as refugees from the infamous Ferrari “Palace Revolt” of 1961, intended to mount a direct challenge to their former employer.

With the sponsorship of a trio of wealthy industrialists including Count Giovanni Read More
