1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ

Alfa Romeos enjoyed tremendous success in the 1920s and early 1930s in distance, circuit and hillclimb events across Europe.

Post-war, Alfa Romeo picked up its winning ways with privateers […]

1934 Chrysler Airflow Coupe

The Chrysler Airflow was the first truly aerodynamic streamlined American car. “It bores through the air,” Chrysler advertised — and they could prove it, because the Airflow had been extensively tested in the wind tunnel. But it was more than its form that made the Airflow historically significant. Its steel, […]

1953 Bentley R-Type Continental

After creating some lightweight bodies on the Bentley Mark VI chassis, coachbuilding firm H.J. Mulliner was contracted to design and construct the R-type Continental prototype, affectionately named “Olga.” Exhaustive road testing resulted in modification of the gearbox to a direct-ratio top gear and a lowered rear-axle ratio for enhanced performance.

Driving Outside the Box

Though it may be hard to believe, Porsche’s first-generation 986-series Boxster is now 25 years old. While the Boxster was considered by many to be the Porsche you bought if you couldn’t afford a 911, in truth it was among the sharpest, purest sports cars the brand has ever built. […]

1935 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupe by Rollston

During the 1960s, American V8 power was seen by independent European manufacturers as a means of creating a luxury Grand Tourer to compete with the more exotic offerings of long-established firms like Ferrari, Maserati and Aston Martin. AC, Jensen, Facel and Iso, among others, all went down this route, as […]
