Porsche 935 - Plaid

“This spectacular car is a birthday present from Porsche Motorsport to fans all over the world,” says Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars. “Because the car isn’t homologated, engineers and designers didn’t have to follow the usual rules and thus had freedom in the development.”

The race car’s technology for clubsport events and private training on racetracks is based on the 911 GT2 RS high-performance sports car. Like its historic predecessor, most of the body has been replaced or supplemented by carbon-fibre composite parts (CFRP). With its streamlined extended rear, the 935 reaches a length of 4.87 metres. The width of the exclusive clubsport racer measures 2.03 metres.

Ferrari F40

The Ferrari F40 is a poster car and race car for the street for a generation of automotive enthusiasts. Powered by a 3 Litre Twin Turbo V8, the F40 exudes pure excitement as the turbos kick in.

As the successor to the 288 GTO, the F40 was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was Ferrari’s fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car for sale.

The car debuted with a planned production total of 400 units and a factory suggested retail price of approximately US $400,000 (fivefold the price of its predecessor, the 288 GTO) in 1987 ($910,000 today). A total of 1,315 cars were manufactured with 213 units destined for the United States.

The GT recalls Ford’s historically significant GT40, a consecutive four-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans (1966–1969), including a 1-2-3 finish in 1966.

McLaren 675LT

A lightweight, track-focused evolution of the McLaren 650S

It was announced in February 2015 and introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motorshow. McLaren only made 500 675LT Coupe (without counting the special editions such as the MSO HS).

The 675LT can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, 0.1 seconds faster than the 650S. 0–200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.9 seconds, 0–300 km/h (186 mph) in 25.9 seconds, 0–322 km/h (200 mph) in 31.2 seconds, and do the 1⁄4 mile (402 m) sprint in 10.3 seconds at 227.1 km/h (141.1 mph), continuing on to a claimed top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).

Ferrari F8

The Ferrari F8 (Type F142MFL) is a mid-engine sports car produced by the Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari. The car is the successor to the Ferrari 488, with notable exterior and performance changes. It was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show

1966 Original GT40

The GT40 effort was launched by Ford Motor Company to win long-distance sports car races against Ferrari, which won every 24 Hours of Le Mans race from 1960 to 1965. The GT40 broke Ferrari’s streak in 1966 and went on to win the next three annual races. The Mk II’s victory in 1966 was the first win for an American manufacturer in a major European race since Jimmy Murphy’s triumph with Duesenberg at the 1921 French Grand Prix. In 1967, the Mk IV became the only car designed and built entirely in the United States to achieve the overall win at Le Mans.

The Mk 1, the oldest of the cars, won in 1968 and 1969, the second chassis to win Le Mans more than once. (This Ford/Shelby chassis #P-1075 was believed to have been the first until the Ferrari 275P chassis 0816 was revealed to have won the 1964 race after winning the 1963 race in 250P configuration and with a 0814 chassis plate). Using an American Ford V8 engine, originally of 4.7-liter displacement capacity (289 cubic inches), it was later enlarged to the 4.9-liter engine (302 cubic inches), with custom alloy Gurney–Weslake cylinder heads.

1967 Ferrari Dino 206SP

One of the most beautiful Ferraris

The Dino has become one of the most coveted, desirable and significant cars built by Ferrari throughout the builder’s history. Named after Enzo Ferrari’s son, who passed in 1956, the Dino is unique in its design, history and inspiration alike. When racing in its heyday this car was top of its class and is recognized as one of the most beautiful cars Ferrari or any other company has built.

This particular Dino was featured on the cover of Issue 182 of Cavallino, a magazine dedicated to Ferrari history, in 2011. It has been verified as authentic by Ferrari, and its original owner is traced back to the iconic racing team Scuderia Filipinetti. Originally 50 were slated to be built, but only 18 of these beautiful race cars were constructed due to civil unrest in Italy and labour problems.

2021 McLaren Artura

Underpinned by the McLaren philosophy of super-lightweight engineering, the all-new Artura is the distillation of every attribute inherent in a McLaren – distinctive design, unrivalled performance, dynamic excellence and engineering innovation – with electrification now bringing the additional benefits of even faster throttle response, lower emissions and being able to run in pure EV mode for emissions-free journeys of up to 30km. This is the debut of the new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA). At the heart of the Artura’s powertrain is McLaren’s all-new, 2,993cc twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine, working in harmony with the Artura’s compact axial flux E-motor. Smaller and more power-dense than a conventional radial flux E-motor. Exhilarating off-the-line’ performance sees the Artura achieve 0-100km/h in just 3.0 seconds, with 0-200km/h taking 8.3 seconds and 0-300km/h just 21.5 seconds. Vehicle courtesy of Pfaff McLaren.

1956 Mercedes Gullwing

The Fastest Production Car of Its Era!

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (W198) was the first iteration of the SL-Class grand tourer and the. fastest production car of its day. Introduced in 1954 as a two-seat coupe with distinctive gull-wing doors, it was later offered as an open roadster. Built by Daimler-Benz AG, the direct fuel injected production model was based on the company’s highly successful yet somewhat less powerful carbureted overhead camstraight 6 1952 racer, the W194.

A 300 SL coupe with its race-winning heritage and Gullwing doors is the essential anchor to any complete collection of classic Mercedes-Benz cars. Displayed at the New York Auto Show in 1954, the Gullwing prototype became the headliner, attracting more than enough orders to justify production. In its enclosed aerodynamic coupe form, the Le Mans-winning 300 SL could only be entered from the top, requiring the innovative doors that were immediately christened “Gullwing.”  Vehicle courtesy of vintagemotorsports.ca.

1972 McLaren M8E/F Papaya Factory Livery

The Canadian American Challenge Cup series was a unique experiment in almost complete freedom of design. So often in motorsports, strict limitations are imposed, but in the case of Can Am, just about anything went. Engines could be any displacement or design, with forced induction, outlandish aerodynamic aids, and even four-wheel drive permitted. The resulting cars. were very wild, and very fast, faster than even the contemporary Formula One cars, in fact McLaren`s own efforts were very successful in the series, amassing more victories than any other manufacturer (43) by the time the series ended in 1974. Their tremendous success began with their first monocoque car, the M6A of 1967. This car evolved into the M8A with the addition of a big block motor for 1968, and the M8B and M8D with further refinements for 1969 and 1970 respectively. The M8F was the ultimate development (aside from a pair of M20`s which were factory cars only and not available to the public) of McLaren`s successful Can Am cars, and featured a lengthened and strengthened chassis, 17 inch wide rear wheels, and revised aerodynamics. The intake stacks were staggered to smooth out the power delivery, and the combined effect of the 1520 pound curb weight and 8.3 liter engine were nothing short of spectacular, earning the moniker of “the ultimate laxative” as coined by the folks at Trojan Cars.
