1974 Jensen Interceptor FF, Formula Ferguson – four wheel drive- ahead of its time.

Used to see these around back in the day. Gorgeous cars.

Damn, I am going to miss it here in car nut heaven… sigh.

Lancia 037 Prototype, 1980. The first version of the 037 which was originally produced and owned by Abarth, is to be offered at auction. The car underwent testing both in the wind tunnel and on track and was used as a reconnaissance vehicle in the Acropolis Rally. The car has subsequently been restored to original condition including the mid-mounted, supercharged 1995cc in its original prototype specification

Love this car.

Why? Because god gave him everything he wanted (ah, bet you didn’t see that coming. Kudos to Silodrome for the find!)

Manfred Kremer famously converted an old Porsche 936 rather than wait a year for the 956

Yep, a hero.

 

Glickenhaus 007 LMH (Le Mans Hypercar): 3.5L Twin-Turbo V8 Sound in Action at Monza!

Mar 7, 2021

I’m not sure if in these last weeks I’ve received more requests for a new binaural video or to try and record the new Glickenhaus race car testing here in Monza a couple of days ago. Anyway at the moment I want to satisfy your second request. This two-days session was just the second test the 007 did after a first shakedown at Vallelunga last week and, for what I saw, everything went very very well.

This car will be Glickenhaus Racing’s weapon for the whole 2021 World Endurance Championship season, which includes the 24h Le Mans race too, and it has been built to fit in the new ‘Le Mans Hypercar’ class. FIA and ACO expect these cars to lap ‘La Sarthe’ in around 3’30”, which is 15 seconds slower than the old LMP1s and 5 seconds slower than LMP2s (but these prototypes will already have 40 hp less in 2021 compared to previous seasons, so lap times are expected to increase for them too).

The Glickenhaus 007 LMH is powered by a bespoke engine built and developed by French company Pipo Motours, famous for their history of engine manufacturers for WRC, rallycross and hillclimb cars. It’s a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with flat-plane cranckshaft with a max power output not over 500 kW/670hp, as per rules. The car must also have a minimum weight of 1,030 kg. In this project there are other important companies involved such as the Italian Podium Advanced Technologies, which assembles and designed the car, Sauber which takes care of the aerodynamic part and Joest Racing which helps in the development of the 007.

The confirmed drivers of the two 007 LMHs for the 2021 season are Romain Dumas, Ryan Briscoe, Gustavo Menezes, Olivier Pla, Pipo Derani, Richard Westbrook and Franck Mailleux. Watch it in action around Monza Circuit driven by Pipo Derani, Romain Dumas and Ryan Briscoe!

The good old days.

Probably at the Paris-Dakar event, eh.

An inspiration for many a year.

I wonder what the young man thinks of these spectacular shenanigans.

Not just a rare shot of a GT40 variant. It’s also a rare shot of Carroll during his “Hollywood” period. Check out his Gucci loafers and Jay Sebring haircut.

Is the guy in the tie, Leo ?

Contrary to the movie, Miles/McLaren drove one of these in 1965!!

While I do enjoy the movie on many levels, and I’m glad the story is being told, this is perhaps the most disappointing part of the historical inaccuracies. They also gloss over the fact that Miles won at Daytona w/ Lloyd Ruby and took first in class at Sebring (behind the Chapparral 2A) w/ Bruce McLaren, both in 1965.

A wonderful car, fast and sleek.

Members would occasionally bring them to our Connecticut BMW CCA events. Fun times, they were. Mid-engine V12. M1s were made for BMW in Italy by Lamborghini. Looks the business in red, it does.

BMW CSL Group A

This magnificent BMW CSL Group A was produced by BMW between 1983 and 1986. Adorned in its famous rainbow livery, it competed in the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) under the banner of the Eggenberger team. However, in the 1985 season, Eggenberger switched to the new Volvo 245 and BMW Italia set up its own team to keep on competing in the ETCC. Back then, Italy was BMW’s second most important market after Germany, and the BMW Italia team (which later became ‘Cibiemme) proved itself to be a strong contender on the touring stage in the 1980s and 1990s.
