Vintage Bentley fitted with a WWII 27-litre SPITFIRE engine that sold for £500,000

You’d have to have your aesthetic sense surgically removed not to find the Meteor Bentley impressive. There’s that pristine, polished engine for a start, a 27-litre derivation of the legendary Merlin unit that once propelled Lancaster bombers and Spitfires. With 12 exhausts and 24 spark plugs, and turning out a leisurely 660bhp, the Meteor – in essence a Merlin without a supercharger – provided many British tanks with ample, dependable power. It’s equally unstressed here. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW A classic Bentley went on sale in 2012….

This Hero Hit The 1 Million Mile Mark In His Porsche 356 After Daily Driving It For 40 Years

Most cars struggle to make it much beyond 100,000 miles in their lifetimes. Deferred maintenance, rust, and general lack of care eventually do them in. This Porsche 356 is different, though, because it has just passed the fabled million-miles-driven mark. Guy Newmark, owner of this blue 1964 Porsche 356C coupe, received the car as a graduation gift from his father, who bought the Porsche from its original owner mere months after it was built. For almost 50 years, he’s been driving “Blu” anywhere he needed to go, accumulating an astonishing number of…

The Lotus Wagon You’ve Always Wanted Is up for Sale

The Lotus Cortina is considered to be one of the great small sports cars of the 1960s. Based off the normal Ford Cortina sold in Europe, the Lotus Cortina was developed under legendary Lotus Cars founder, Colin Chapman. Built for Group 2 homologation, it included many suspension and design upgrades, as well as a Lotus-built twin-cam inline-4 engine. What resulted was a successful race car and fantastic-to-drive street car. Sadly, Ford never asked Lotus to make any sporty Cortina wagons. Worry not, because someone actually built one, and it’s up…

The Vintage Supercars Rotting away in a Forest (and that’s how the owner wants it)

This might be a painful sight for classic car enthusiasts. Jaguar, Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW; just a few of the iconic names whose logos you would never expect to find on vehicles in such a sorry state. But what might really shock you is that these unfortunate automobiles are not actually abandoned, and their owner is in fact a classic car lover and expert himself, who has deliberately left these cars here at the mercy of mother nature… Michael Fröhlich is the kind of guy who can track down a Mercedes…

This AMX/3 could be the most expensive AMC ever sold

Just five examples were built – and this one is heading to auction. Before the American Motor Company was banished to the Island of Misfit Automakers in 1988, it was able to piece together a sports car worthy of world recognition. That car was the mid-engined AMC AMX/3. It was introduced at the Chicago Auto Show in 1970, and was designed by AMC, but assembled by Bizzarrini in Italy.  Though it never made its way to the production production line, a total of five concept cars were completed before the plug was pulled on…

Rusty car that has’nt moved for a DECADE becomes local landmark

A rust-ridden Rover 90 that has become a local landmark in Cardiff for 10 years has much more of a story to tell than first meets the eye. The Rover 90, that dates from 1956, has been parked in the same spot for a decade, but many who see it every day know little of its fascinating history. The car once belonged to Dennis Desmond, a gold miner who lived in Wales but who would travel to South Africa regularly for work, leaving the prized possession behind for years at…

Million Dollar Car Graveyard Is The Most Amazing Thing You’ll Ever See!

Aston Martin DB4 hidden in forest for 50 years set to fetch £350,000

An Aston Martin DB4 that languished in woodland for almost half a century has been exhumed and is expected to sell for between £300,000 and £385,000 in January. Built in Britain and shipped to the USA over fifty years ago, this DB4 was one of the most powerful and desirable vehicles of its time. It’s not clear, then, why this particular example was one day parked and not started again. It is thought to have sat outdoors in a secluded part of its owner’s property in Massachusetts since the early…
