1953 Jaguar XK 120

February, 2017 § Leave a comment

The X120 put Jaguar no the map as sport cars manufacterer,  it was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis… with a remarkably low price, a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari, of similar performance! 

This gorgeous XK120 competition roadster is one of the only 27 cars finished in this rare colour scheme of Lavender Grey paint with Biscuit and Red interior. The engine is a  3.4-litre developing 160hp.

2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast

February, 2017 § Leave a comment

A new Ferrari comes to replace 2013 F12 berlinetta.  With a 789-hp naturally aspirated V12 and four-wheel steering. It’s also the first Ferrari to have electric power steering instead of a hydraulic steering box.

Once F12 disappear,  it marks the end of the era: Ferrari no longer sells a car designed by Pininfarina !    And believe or not, this car is painted in a new color named “Rosso Settanta” created for the company’s 70th anniversary.

Only ten J50cars will be built!  A stunning design created over a 2015 488 Spider to celebrate company’s 50th anniversary in Japan.  With the same 3.9-litre twin turbo 690bhp engine

A nice styling, the black line that runs around the front bumper and the side it is a homage to the 1984 288 GTO, 1987 F40 and F50. And the typical current Ferrari tradition: four rounded tail lamps. Enjoy this beauty.

Maserati made only 125 Ghibli Spiders during the model’s five-year production. This is a 4.9 liter 330 hp.  A gorgeous design by Giorgetto Giugiaro with stunning chromed Borrani wire wheels.

1964 Cheetah GT V8

Bill Thomas had one goal in mind when he designed and produced the Cheetah: beat the Ford Cobra.  Cobra was an incredible car because of his low weight, but Cheetah power/weight ratio was phenomenal, even better being almost 500lbs lighter than the Cobra!  With a V8 this car it’s really a beast engineered for agility and outright speed!

With Chevrolet backing the company, 25 fine examples were produced. Enjoy this gorgeous shape with gullwing doors!

 

 

1922 Hispano-Suiza H6B Skiff-Torpedo

January, 2017 § Leave a comment

Another car from one of my favourite brands: Hispano-Suiza, from Barcelona. Hispano-Suiza was known for refined chassis featuring the latest automotive innovations. When the H6 was introduced in 1919, it was one of the highest-quality chassis in the world and ans enormous six- cylinder engine built with traditional Hispano-Suiza refinement devoid of avant-garde technology.

Spyder version of R8 last generation.  Sexier than the roofed one… for sure.
