1997 Audi A4 Quattro Super Touring

In the late 1990s, manufacturer-backed teams would come to dominate touring-car series around the world. One of the most pre-eminent was Audi, which spared no expense in its pursuit of the top of the podium. Using its base A4 Quattro as a platform, Audi developed the car significantly and turned it into a race winner.

In addition, Audi sought the best drivers from around the world in order to do their creation justice.

Technically, the Audi A4 Quattro Super Touring Read More

1950 Jaguar XK 120 Competition Roadster

One of Australia’s best success stories in terms of motorcar sales and racing, the tale of Bib Stillwell began with a humble garage in Kew, Australia, in 1949.

Early on, as agents for British sports cars MG and Jaguar as well as Morris, B.S. Stillwell & Co. established a fine reputation for excellence in client service. Alongside the day-to-day sales, Bib developed his own interest in motor racing, successfully campaigning a number of cars including the Jaguar XK 120 offered Read More

1964 OSCA 1600 GT Coupe

The OSCA 1600 GT offered here is the work of Carrozzeria Zagato, and is one of only seven Zagato-bodied cars that were raced; indeed, chassis 011 is probably the most raced of all OSCA 1600 GTs. Its driver was Fausto Mariani, who achieved numerous successes with 011 during the 1964 and 1965 seasons.

1955 Jaguar D-Type

Following their win at Le Mans in 1953, where Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt led a veritable parade of C-types to three of the top four finishes, Jaguar faced a problem. The limits of the XK 120-based race car had been reached, and in order to remain competitive at Le Mans, a new car would be required.

While the C-type had been one of the first cars of its era to employ a steel-tube space frame, Read More

1925 Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix Two-Seater

Some of the world’s most evocative Grand Prix cars are those originally manufactured during the 1920s, not necessarily for racing team use, but primarily for sale to private customers, providing them with the equipment necessary to take the plunge and go motor racing upon their own account, potentially at the very highest level.

Of course, it was the marque Bugatti that most prominently provided that service, and most notably with its magnificent family of compact, light and powerful straight-eight-engined Bugatti Read More

1977 Chevron B36

The Chevron B36 was designed to enter the 2-liter racing class of sports car racing, with the chassis accepting various types of engines. Chassis 367705 was built by Chevron in May 1977 and delivered new to owner and driver Gordon Hamilton of Kansas. Fitted with the highly developed Cosworth BDG 1,975-cc, 4-cylinder engine, it was entered in many events during the 1977, 1978 and 1979 seasons. After the 1980 season it was put it into dry storage, where it remained Read More

1953 Jaguar C-Type Racer

This wonderful Le Mans racing Jaguar is one of the most unmolested, highly original, 1950s 24-Hour-race sports cars still surviving anywhere in the world today. It is also much more than “just” a Le Mans 24-Hour race car — it is a Le Mans 24-Hour-race top-10 finisher, and it achieved that feat in the Jaguar C-type model’s greatest Le Mans year — 1953 — when the Works cars finished 1st, 2nd, 4th and 9th overall.

This remarkably conserved Jaguar C-type Read More

1987 Ford RS200 Coupe

Masterminded by its European Motor Sports boss, Stuart Turner, the RS200 was Ford’s ambitious attempt at producing a championship-winning Group B rally car.

Overseen by Ford Motor Sports Chief Engineer John Wheeler, the RS200 project commenced in 1983 with production of 200 cars planned to meet Group B requirements, hence the name. The design, by Tony Southgate, eventually crystallized as a compact mid-engined coupe powered by a turbocharged version of the 1.8-liter 16-valve Cosworth BDA engine and equipped with four-wheel Read More

1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR

In 1973, Roger Penske created a racing series called the International Race of Champions, or IROC. Equally ambitious and unique in concept, the IROC series aimed to place the world’s best racing drivers in identical cars to compete against each other over several rounds at leading U.S. venues. In so doing, Penske’s aim was to reduce all the usual variables in motor racing, so that only the bravest, cleverest and most skilled driver would prevail.

While deciding on a car Read More
