The car that followed was the 550 Barchetta, which was identical in every way to the 550 Maranello but was intended to be a pure roadster, Read More
This extremely significant Aston Martin Grand Touring coupe is none other than a Le Mans 24-Hour race finisher, having been driven into 7th place (3rd in class) in the first post-war Grand Prix d’Endurance — run on June 25–26, 1949 — at the legendary Sarthe circuit.
Two weeks later, on July 10–11, 1949, it was driven to a fine 5th place overall in the Spa 24-Hour race on the daunting Francorchamps road circuit in Belgium.

Produced between 1982 and 1990, the Lamborghini Jalpa was the junior Lamborghini of the 1980s, and was designed to rejoin the battle with Ferrari’s similarly sized 308 series.
Major changes involved the quad-cam V8 engine with a capacity increase to 3.5 liters, and somewhat more aggressive styling, mainly in the side treatment of the body, which was again conceived and executed by Bertone.
Maximum power was 255 bhp at 7,000 rpm, good enough to give the aerodynamic Jalpa a top Read More

In 1989, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Lamborghini Automobili S.p.A., the company owners at that time — the Chrysler Corporation — drafted in no less than Horatio Pagani to restyle and relaunch the amazing Countach for the final time.
