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 […]

1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk II

With the DB6 Mk II’s introduction in June 1969, the final incarnation of the original DB Series, begun in 1958 by the DB4, had arrived. The option of AE Brico fuel injection was the most significant mechanical development, while flared wheelarches, necessitated by the adoption of the wider DBS wheels, […]

1957 Dual-Ghia Convertible

Dual-Ghia’s allure is more than its sheer exclusivity or the intrigue of an American-Italian co-production. It’s the style, the overcome-the-impossible swagger and Rat Pack panache. Very few concept cars in history have made it to production, but thanks to Eugene Casaroll’s tenacity, this one did and it’s every bit the […]

Status Symbol

So this Bentley owner is getting out of his car and he gets sideswiped, ripping the door clean off its hinges. The police show up and he starts yelling about the damage, and the cop says, “Sir, your left arm is torn off!” The Bentley owner looks down and says, […]

1962 Ferrari 268 SP

In 1960, following the lead taken by Cooper and Lotus, Ferrari began to experiment with rear-engine placement in its Formula One and sports-racing cars.

1928 Mercedes-Benz 26/120/180 Type S

The Mercedes-Benz “S” was created in a magical period for the company, shortly after the merger of Daimler and Benz, while Ferdinand Porsche was chief engineer. He built a powerful-yet-versatile automobile — a true all-rounder, at home on the racetrack, at hillclimbs and providing exhilirating driving for the road. The […]

1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series II Aerodinamico Coupe

Amagnificent expression of power and exclusivity, the 400 Superamerica LWB Coupe Aerodinamico exudes the individual character and artistry of a bygone era in custom coachbuilding. These exotic, large-displacement Ferraris were the most expensive and refined road-going automobiles of the early 1960s, built in extremely limited numbers for Enzo’s most important […]

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 […]

1968 AC 428 Spider by Frua

AC often seemed doomed to being left in the lurch by events not of its own making, yet each time, the Hurlock family’s company demonstrated a resilience largely unprecedented in automobile history. Several of these “snatched from the jaws of defeat” moments are reflected in the collection of Jim Feldman, […]
