The Ferrari F430

The Ferrari F430

The F430 is so quick it has become one of those rare cars in which you need to pick your moment very carefully before opening the throttle fully; a car that can eat straights so rapidly you have to be extremely mature about where and when you deploy full acceleration. This car is fantastic. Not, perhaps, as good on the track as it is on the road, but remember, despite the way it goes and sounds and looks, this is not a racing car. It’s a road car.

1961 Jaguar E Type FHC Chassis no 860035 Semi Lightweight Flat Floor - an historically significant car

Jaguar's E-type is Britain's greatest-ever sportscar. And CUT 7 is arguably the most famous of all E-types.

It was his final fling in this, the original CUT 7. But his association with one of the best-known registration numbers in Jaguar folklore had only just begun.

The Panhard PL17 Tigre

The Panhard PL17 Tigre

The Panhard PL17 Tigre is typically French; quirky, Gallic, full of charm and joie de vivre, silly perhaps but maybe romantic. And yet the car is the product of a ruthless French design process which produced a highly efficient transportation machine, designed to carry six adults in comfort with their luggage at high rates of speed whilst consuming the least amount of fuel possible. The same efficiency was also an asset in races and rallies. In the USA magazines boasted that the tough frugal saloon had amassed "over 900 sports car victories", and among more memorable triumphs were a 1-2-3 finish in the 1961 Monte Carlo rally, and three consecutive wins of the Index of Performance at Le Mans from 1950 through 1952. All this from an 850cc twin cylinder engine!
