More than 350 Lamborghini’s gathered in Piazza Castello, Milan, last night where they waited in parc fermé for the start of the 50° Anniversario Grande Giro. Setting off this morning, the tour will make its first stop in Bobbio before travelling through Italy, arriving at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata home on Saturday. It is estimated that the...
Last year we were approached and asked to contribute to a unique project to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary. It’s an opportunity we were only too happy to oblige with, even if we were unable to spare the time to do something on the creative side of things. Anyone who’s ever been to Sant’Agata Bolognese will...
The ‘Uhlenhaut Coupé holds a special place in Mercedes-Benz’s motor sport history. It’s one of two examples made for the 1956 season, however they were never used for racing as Mercedes-Benz withdrew from the sports car world championship after winning the title in 1955. It is closely related to the 300 SLR racing car, driven...
During the past fortnight, Polish designer Pawel (Paulo) Czyżewski has received a huge amount attention for a portfolio he posted on Behance. He’s received more views of his Bugatti Gangloff Concept Car (52,488 and rising) than his whole portfolio put together, so I decided to ask him how it came about, and now that he...
As a nation, we’re often accused of living on our past; of dwelling in a legacy of empire. Yet if there’s one thing that centuries of plunder and reckless adventure has taught us, it’s how to put on a show! And every summer, that’s precisely what we do.
Next year marks the 50th anniversary since Italian industrialist Ferruccio Lamborghini decided he'd had enough of sub-standard Ferraris, and decided to make his own Gran Turismo car - capable of travelling long distances in the style and comfort which he demanded.
It's a fitting tribute to the man who epitomised the 'muscle car' that the 'Friends of Carroll Shelby' should produce an epic, jaw-droppingly grunty Shelby GT500 Cobra in the year of his passing.
We've teamed up with Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to bring you live coverage of Sunday's awards presentation, the centrepiece of the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend.
Special Edition Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse makes an appearance at the Pebble Beach Quail Gathering
For such a bespoke car where customers are allowed to specify virtually every detail, it seems a little trite to release a 'special edition' - after all you're unlikely to see a car park full of Veyrons and need something 'special' to stand out from the crowd.
Another guaranteed star of this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will be Lamborghini's Sesto Elemento, seen here in a behind-the-scenes image taken at the Sesto Elemento photoshoot in Monterey prior to the weekend.
Barely three months since the BMW Zagato Coupé was shown at Italy's Villa d'Este Concours d'elegance, BMW and Zagato have created another variant based on the same chassis for the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The familiar adage, 'The customer is always right', can sometimes prove horribly untrue. Well all I can say is that it must have been a 'very' important customer who requested this car, otherwise surely this is one step too far the fledgling McLaren Automotive.
Viper Stripes. I had them on a MINI, but they seem kitsch next to the ones on SRT's Viper GTS Launch Edition Model, due to make its first official appearance at the renowned automotive events in Monterey, California this weekend.
The BMW Zagato Concept which will make its world debut at the Pebble Beach Concours this coming weekend looks like being an open-top version of the Zagato Coupé which was shown at the Villa d’Este Concours in Italy during May.
BMW remain tight-lipped about their latest collaboration with design house Zagato, following its Zagato Coupé which was shown at the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza in May.
Young people today don't know what they're missing. When I were a lad (well perhaps a bit older than a lad) we watched 500bhp Ford Sierra Cosworth's battle it out with E30 M3s and even the occasional R32 Nissan GT-R. That was touring car racing.
The last time Derek Bell raced a Porsche 962 at Le Mans was in 1992 with his son Justin and Tiff Needell. Now 20 years later, Bell returns for a Group C race on the morning of Saturday, 16th June.
