A magnificent limited edition model car on Maserati Store (1:12 TIPO 61 MOSS/GURNEY 1960 )

Exact 1:12 scale reproduction of the Maserati Tipo 61 that Stirling Moss and Dan Gurney drove to victory at the prestigious 1000 km Nurburgring in 1960 in the famous blue and white colours of the Camoradi racing team.

This magnificent limited edition model car, with 2000 pieces produced, reproduces the original car down to the finest detail: from the 250 hp 2.9-litre 4-cylinder engine, complete with every accessory, to the cockpit, finished with the greatest care. The bonnet, boot and doors open, and the front wheels swivel. A real gem comprising 278 parts and 318 decorations, and a must-have for any collector.

Amazing world of toy cars

One of the greatest post war sports cars of all time, the 1953 Jaguar XK 120 employed very advanced technology.

One of the greatest post war sports cars of all time, the 1953 Jaguar XK 120 employed very advanced technology. A dual overhead cam 3.4 L straight-6 with an alloy cylinder head and twin side draft SU carburetors developed 160 bhp with the standard 8:1 compression ratio. The XK 120 name referred to the top speed the car was capable of - 120 mph (193 km/h) - and at the time of its introduction in 1951, the Jag could lay claim to being the world's fastest standard production car.

Genesis of Ford Thunderbird

The genesis of the Ford Thunderbird can be traced back to the end of World War II. Many American GI's stationed in England during the war acquired a taste for the sleek and agile MG's and Jaguars. Chevy answered the call with its famous Corvette, prompting Ford's brilliant response. The Thunderbird is somewhat less sporting than the Corvette, but more comfortable and luxurious. It's plenty potent, however, with a 285 hp V-8.

2013 Jaguar F-Type S

The largely aluminum 2013 Jaguar F-Type S tips the scales at a mere 3,521 lbs, and with an available 384 hp engine can top out at over 180 mph. A worthy successor to the iconic Jaguar XKE.

Corvette - America's Sports Car

         The Corvette made its debut in 1953, and is widely considered America's Sports Car.
Its origins date back to the end of World War 2, when returning GI's sang the praises of the lithe sports cars they had seen overseas, such as MGs, Jaguar's, and Alfa Romeo's. GM designer Harley Earl, always quick to sense a trend, convinced GM to create its own original sports car. Earl chose fiberglass for the body, making Chevrolet the first big company to use the new miracle material in a mass production vehicle.

BENTLEY R-TYPE CONTINENTAL

The iconic post-war Bentley. During the 1950s this was quite possibly the finest motor car available to humanity, combining speed, performance, luxury, elegance, exclusivity and the evocative Bentley name. Marque purists insist that this was the last true Bentley until the arrival of the Mulsanne Turbo three decades later.

The 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport Aprile Spyder Corsa

The 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport Aprile Spyder Corsa is a vivid testament to the Alfa creed of building cars that not only look great, but perform superbly. The Alfa 6C originated in 1927, and provided the basis for a number of classic Alfas in various forms. In 1929 the 1750 (indicating an engine displacement of 1752cc) was introduced, and in touring and racing versions could generate upwards of 85hp. The 1750s were highly successful in racing, winning the Mille Miglia, the Belgian 24 Hours and the Tourist Trophy in 1930.

1919 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

                                       In Picture 1922 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost
 The 1919 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost was represented in the automotive press as the "greatest car in the world". Rolls didn't coin the term but they didn't exactly deny it either. Very early on Rolls-Royce tried to represent the automotive ideal of swift, silent luxury, while incorporating superior technology. (Hence the term "it moves as silent as a silver ghost", yet another term invented by the press.) Much of this silent operation must be attributed to twin spark ignition and a massive center main bearing that removed most engine vibration. Electric lighting and electric starting was new for 1919.

Jowett R-4 Sports Car

Date: 10/11/1953-London, England- The Jowett Company is exhibiting this sleek bug-like sports car, the "R-4,' the latest Jupiter developed directly from the Le Mans Jupiter sports cars which won the 1 1/2-liter class three years running, 1950-52. Top speed is more than 100 mph. A feature of interest on this model is an electrically-driven fan, operable independently of the engine, which cuts in thermostatically when engine temperature requires its use. Otherwise, it is idle, not absorbing horsepower or reducing temperature to an unwanted low level.

Facts About The Famous Alfa Romeo BAT series cars

The famed Alfa Romeo BAT series cars were concepts created through a collaboration between Alfa, Italdesign, and Bertone. BAT stands for "Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica", and these vehicles were far more than just stylistic exercises.

                               Front View of 1953 Alfa Romeo BAT 5 Concept Car
They were intended to explore the aerodynamic effects of fins on automobiles, and one of the advantages that emerged was enhanced stability at high speed. The drag coefficient is a still remarkable 0.19 Cd, which is impressive by any standard. Although powered by a modest 90 hp motor, the BATs could do over 125 mph thanks to the advanced aerodynamics.


                                          1955 Alfa Romeo BAT 9 Concept Car  
 The BAT 5Õs wild fins design reflected the world's growing obsession with outer space and speed. Classic cars like this were on display at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach, California.
                                                         1953 Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 5
Mechanically based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, the Alfa Romeo Bertone BAT 11 pay artful homage to the fabulous Alfa Romeo BAT cars of the early to mid-1950s. There is a chance this vehicle may see limited production. Exciting cars like this were on display at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show.

DRIVING PLEASURE : RENAULT ALPINE A110-50

          
       In 2012, THE ICONIC ALPINE A110 TURNED 50. TO CELEBRATE THE EVENT,  RENAULT DESIGNED A CONCEPT CAR : RENAULT ALPINE A110-50 
DEDICATED TO PERFORMANCE AND DRIVING PLEASURE.
This movie was shot with Jean "Jeannot" Ragnotti,who is a French former rally driver for Renault in the World Rally Championship. He conquered the Monte Carlo Rally in 1981,[1] what was the first turbo victory in the history of the WRC, alongside compatriot Jean-Marc Andrié against the might of the ultimate four-wheel-drive upstart, the Audi Quattro. In the following season, he took his Renault 5 Turbo to victory at the Tour de Corse. The Maxi version of the same Renault 5 was to reign again on the asphalt stages of European rallying, when in 1985, Ragnotti claimed the Tour de Corse again with Group B rallying at its zenith; a win that came on debut of Renault 5 Maxi Turbo. The 1985 Rothmans Tour de Corse would also prove to be a tragic affair after the fatal crash of Attilio Bettega on SS4 (Zerubia) of the event.In the 1990s, Ragnotti continued to drive for Renault, this time in their front-wheel drive Clio Maxi.
