The Miura was originally conceived by Lamborghini's engineering team, who designed the car in their spare time against the wishes of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who [read more...]

(December 2009) The Bugatti Type 18, also called the Garros, is an automobile produced from 1912 through 1914. Produced shortly after the start of the company, the design was something of a relic. It had much in common with the cars Ettore Bugatti had designed for Deutz Gasmotoren Fabrik but with the radiator of the Type 13. Only 6 or 7 examples were built. Power came from a large 5.0 L (5027 cc/306 in³) straight-4 engine with 3 valves per cylinder and a single overhead camshaft. This large engine had a 100 mm bore and very long 160 mm stroke, so it could only rev to about 2800 rpm. The rear wheels were chain driven. Dimensions: Wheelbase: 100.4 in (2550 mm) Track: 49.2 in (1250 mm) Weight: 2750 lb (1250 kg · · Bugatti road car timeline, 1910–present — a marque of the [read more...]

- Ferrari 250 TR 61 Spyder Fantuzzi

Ferrari 250 TR 61 Spyder Fantuzzi Manufacturer Ferrari Production 1960-1961 Class Le Mans Body style Front-Engined Racecar The Ferrari 250 TR 61 Spyder Fantuzzi was a front-engined racecar made by Ferrari in 1961. Known for its distinctive "sharknose" which it shared with another Ferrari of the same era, the Ferrari 156. This aerodynamic design was controversial and successful in racing, but Ferrari began changing the look almost immediately. Other, more conventional bodies were designed by Ferrari stalwarts, Pininfarina and Touring. The engine had the same displacement as the rest of the 250 series but was tuned to produce far more power. The front styling of the 250 TR61 pictured served as inspiration to the current Ferrari F430 road car. The 250 TR lines of 1960 and 1961 were dominant racers - Olivier Gendebien took Le Mans again those two years, with Paul Frère in 1960 and Phil Hill in 1961.
