5 collector cars to put in your garage this week
Make Lancia Great Again
The Zagato-bodied Lancia Fulvia is a very different beast to the standard car. And this particular example has been fitted with a raft of motorsport-inspired modifications, including Daytona-style headlights, HF1600-spec front wishbones, and a Group IV inlet manifold. The result is a rather brutish-looking car that is no doubt as exciting to drive, as it is to look at.
A ‘proper’ TVR
As technologically impressive as the new TVR Griffith may be, we’re not quite sure if it evokes the left-field spirit of the marque’s former machines. The Cerbera, for example, was like a cocaine-fuelled raver dressed in a sharp Savile Row suit. This particular example was imported to Australia in the mid-2000s and, as is so important these days, looks to be in wonderfully original condition.
The Joe Buzzetta Speedster
This unique Porsche 356 Speedster was bought from Glöckler in Frankfurt by Joe Buzzetta while he was stationed there during his time in the army. The son of an Italian migrant, Buzzetta raced the car at Europe’s most famous circuits, forging a reputation that would ultimately lead him to become a Porsche factory driver. Recently, the car was subjected to a comprehensive restoration with the utmost focus on authenticity and originality. Needless to say, it looks phenomenal.
This 2007 Noble M12 GTO M400 has traveled a long way from the Leicestershire factory in which it was born – it’s currently for sale in Philadelphia. With a 425bhp twin-turbocharged V6 and a curb weight of just over 1,000kg, the M400 could run rings around more fully-fledged supercars than it had any right to. This particular example has, remarkably, had just one owner from new.
Global Endurance Legend
The impressive turn out of over 70 cars in the Global Endurance Legends demonstration at Le Mans Classic last weekend is telling of the surging interest in these modern endurance sports cars. As intimidating as it may look, this 2013 Oreca 03R LMP2 is, according to its seller, an accessible and competitive car with which to compete in the Global or Masters Endurance Legends series. Mika Salo also raced it at Le Mans, which is very cool!
