1952 Abarth 1100 Sport by Ghia

The last of four Abarth 205 competition chassis to be constructed, the car offered here is the only example to use an engine and transmission developed from the new Fiat 1100-103, as well as the only example bodied by Ghia. Believed to have been designed by Giovanni Michelotti, it was constructed concurrently with the Ghia-bodied Chryslers of the same period. The Abarth echoed the Chryslers’ broad oval grille opening, wide low stance and canopy-like roof element — but with a Read More

1955 Ferrari 121 LM Spyder by Scaglietti

Evolving from one of Ferrari’s earliest 4-cylinder engines, Ferrari’s straight-six project eventually led to the potent 121 LM.

The rather hefty displacement of 4,412 cc provided much more horsepower and torque than its predecessors. Fitted with three side-draft Weber carburetors, the engine produced a hearty 360 bhp. These were not numbers to scoff at, as this engine was over a liter larger in displacement and produced over 100 more horsepower than a Jaguar D-type.

According to noted Ferrari historian Marcel Read More

A Cheap, Fast, Fun Alfa Romeo

Picture a sunny summer afternoon on the Pacific Coast Highway north of Santa Cruz, CA. It’s the late 1980s, and two new sport sedans are cruising to the spot where a passing lane opens up.

The challenge is to be ahead of the other car by the end of that passing lane. The contestants are a Saab 900 Turbo driven by your humble narrator and a 2.5-liter Alfa Romeo Milano driven by a friend who shall go nameless, even though Read More

  • Two SU “Sloper” carburetors
  • 70 bhp at 3,500 rpm

1956 Talbot-Lago T14 LS Special Coupe

Talbot-Lago introduced a sensational new 2.5-liter model at the 1955 Paris Salon — the T14 LS — an altogether superior sports car with a 4-cylinder, twin-camshaft, overhead-valve engine. In standard tune, the engine developed 120 bhp, which was transmitted via an all-synchromesh ZF gearbox. The chassis frame was fabricated from large-diameter tubes and featured independent front suspension. The styling borrowed much from the Record Grand Sport, the sleek 2+2 coachwork being a wonderful example of Gallic elegance.
