  • Brit team victorious on Modena Cento Ore rally!

    Brit team victorious on Italian rally!

    11 Jun 2015

    An all-British crew has taken the top going on the Modena Cento Ore – a 1200-mile tour of Italy which

    includes regularity sections and races at the region’s most challenging circuits

    – for the second year in succession.

    Phillip Walker and Howard Redhouse drove their 1962 Jaguar E-type to victory

    ahead of stiff competition from 160 other competitors, with 16 manufacturers and

    18 countries represented.

    The post-1965 category was won by a 1973 Porsche 911 RSR, while a

    ’59 MGA Twin Cam took the laurels in the regularity sections.

    A '54 Porsche 356 Pre-A Speedster also picked up an award. 

    Among the entrants was 1974 Football World Champion Rainer Bonhof,

    who paired Albert Otten in a 1939 BMW 328. 

    The total value of the field was well in excess of €100m, but that didn’t stop

    owners from putting their classics through their paces on 13 special closed-road

    stages, four circuit races and 22 time checks throughout the six-day tour.

    Organisers were celebrating the 15th anniversary of the event, which this year

    began in Rome and finished in Modena, taking in a winding route through Lazio,

    Umbria, Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna, in addition to the Imola, Mugello,

    Vallelunga and Magione circuits.

  • BUY THIS, NOT THAT: FIAT 500 v FIAT 500

    by Garry Shortt | May 2, 2015

     

    http://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk/news/classic-car-news/1504/buy-this-not-that-fiat-500-vs-fiat-500/

    The Fiat 500 is everywhere these days. The new one, that is, although we use the term loosely because

    it’s been around since 2007.

    Its cute looks, peppy engines and endless options list have made it a huge hit in the UK –

    in fact, at the last count it was the nation’s tenth best-selling car.

    However, its popularity is also the reason why it’s lost its original pose factor – the shape we fell in love with

    when the original 2004 Tripiuno concept car is now in every supermarket car park from Perth to Penzance.

    Driving a Fiat 500 is no longer the fashion statement it once was.

    Nope, to make a real impact you have to drive the proper Fiat 500 – Dante Giacosa’s Nuova, introduced in 1957.

    Drop £2965 off the price off the cheapest brand new 500 and you can have this beautifully maintained 1971 car.

    It’s left-hand-drive, but think of it as added pedestrian wow factor rather than a problem – the Nuova’s dinky dimensions

    make it a doddle to drive, no matter which side the wheel’s on.

    Its cutesy styling, petite proportions and the throb of its two-cylinder rear-mounted engine mean it runs rings

    around the new car in the look-at-me stakes.

    ‘Ahhhh!’, we hear you cry. ‘The new Fiat 500 has free road tax!’


    Don’t worry. The 1971 car is classed as an historic vehicle by the DVLA, so it does too. Tempted by the cool original? We are.
