Its history is legendary: debuted in 1957, winning the 1,000 km of Spa and Nurburgring. The following year the same Stirling Moss won with him at Goodwood, taking the World Championship.

The 550 miles across the valley they mounted, the Vorarberg and the Tyrol that make up the Silvretta Classic Rally are already one of the major world events of the classics. Full of beauty and automotive oddities: from legendary racing cars, antique vehicles on a daily or luxury convertible, 167 have been enrolled in this year’s exclusive event.
The three stages of the Silvretta Classic, with some mountain passes of steep climbs, not really required to power cars and extreme speeds, but as accurately as possible, so in theory, all these have the same opportunities as modern opponents (the peak year allowed is 1992). Continue reading →
Mitsuoka gave an eccentric reactionary style to the compact one March to which called Viewt and in this conjugates the current technology, the appearance of self-classical and a price within reach of many. Some ‘improvements’ are made with an eye on the rearview mirror. This was precisely what made the little craft modifying cars from Japan, Mitsuoka, to give an extravagant style retro at the Nissan March.
To the product of its intervention called it Viewt and in this met the appearance of self-classical with the technology of the current one and a price within reach of many. This intervention was made on the current sedan body March, a car that was launched in 1993 as the Micra and whose evolution led to a new model designation known in Colombia as March. The main change was made in the appearance of its body in which the most sensitive point was the change in the proportions, as though it is based on the March, 3.78 meters long, 4.51 meters reaches Viewt.

Who would not want to put a DB4 GT in your garage? If collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato and are highly desirable in itself, the classic of the 60 passes for one of his most quoted, and a car with a most curious history. The DB4 GT was initially presented at the London Motor Show Aston Martin 1960 and produced 19 points in 1963 but in 1991 allowed the construction of four specimens using original parts, and in 2000 two lucky last had the opportunity to purchase a DB4 GT authentic first-hand.
All these cars now record prices at auction scandal, hovering easily a million euros. It is not easy to lay hands on one, so several companies have specialized in building replicas and conversions, offering Evanta one of the more sophisticated solutions. Continue reading →
When the crisis seems that floods everything, suddenly a new world record fell in the week when an Aston Martin Zagato Sanction II DB4GT Coupe 1991 was sold by Bonhams of 1.23 billion pounds (1.54 million euros). When an amount is paid and has to match two factors. The first, someone with a lot of money (there are always people like that, at any time in history) and two that the vehicle comes to auction is truly unique. This is one of four cars built, 30 years after the first round. Also the car was owned by Tony Smith, manager of singer Phil Collins, and had only 4,748 miles on the odometer.
Where does the term Sanction in the name of the car? To find out we must go back in the history of the brand. Has a different meaning to the term Mark, which has become commonly used in Aston Martin. Mark II, for example, meant that the model was a second improved version of a model. However, the term Sanction II did not necessarily indicate an improvement, but a second batch had been sanctioned by the factory.
In this particular case, the Sanction in this DB4GT Zagato Coupe II improved considerably if the initial release, but too late. The original collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato in Milan led to a production of only 19 Zagatos DB4GT built between 1961 and 1963, although the factory had booked 23 chassis numbers. An indication of the affection felt for these beautiful cars is that the 19 are still in existence, after fifty years. Continue reading →
Last week was held the Mille Miglia, a “race” of wonderful classic cars, that pays homage to the legendary Mille Miglia, a race car of the 20 that Enzo Ferrari called as “the greatest race car of the world.”
Of all the teams participantesen the 2012 edition, we caught my attention the team of six cars that Jaguar Racing Heritage lined up on the grid. And it was a very special day as they celebrated the 60th anniversary of the arrival of a Type C prototype equipped with a disc brake system in 1952. That first taste of tap in the Mille Miglia of 1952 represented the first test of resistance in the development of Jaguar disc brakes. Depending on the results used large-scale production cars … and it worked. Continue reading →
