Feral Feline – Jaguar E-Type Series 1 OTS

1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 OTS

The Jaguar E-Type really needs no introduction. It's as iconic as Sinatra, and every bit as good looking as Marilyn - but not nearly as fussy as either of them. For that reason, we won't bore readers with the regurgitated information about how its straight-six cylinder engine helped give the marque multiple victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, or how a man named Enzo named the E-Type "the most beautiful car in the world." That would all be … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 1997 Renault Sport Spider Trophy

1997 Renault Sport Spider Trophy

The Renault story is one of triumph, but not without its share of tragedies. While today they reign as one of the largest automakers in Europe, their road was paved with more than a few bumps and many less-than-successful partnerships with every manufacturer imaginable. After decades of restructuring, the automaker that’s been around since 1899 now enjoys a successful collaboration with Nissan that's yielded many highly awarded automobiles. What … [Read more...]

With a fantastic culture, amazing landscape and incredible depth of artistry, it’s not difficult to get caught up in it. Italian automobile designers should also be celebrated, with geniuses like Sergio Scaglietti, Giovanni Bertone, Paolo Pininfarina, Ugo Zagato, Giorgetto Giugiaro and others producing masterpieces … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 1955 MG TF-1500

1955-MG-TF-1500-Sold

Few cars embody their associated culture better than the British sports car. One might argue that the American muscle genre might be a contender, but one simply can’t ignore the impact that the small-displacement open-top sporting cars made on a global level. The British sports car is as about as sensible as the type of clothing that came out of the same era, but it’s better for it. It appealed to the well-heeled, but also to starving enthusiasts … [Read more...]
