Driven by Design: Italdesign Aztec

Upon seeing an Italdesign Aztec, the first thing you notice is the split passenger compartment, and the passenger even gets a wheel like the driver’s steering wheel (it is actually a control console, not a true steering wheel)! Additionally, due to the separated compartments, communication was via electronic connection rather than simply verbal...

Take, for instance, Mr. Steve Hogue's shop in Torrance, California. Housed in a nondescript industrial area of the city and with space for only a dozen cars, the garage appears at first glance to be one of the many small-scale body shops that populate the local streets. Wander inside, however, and you’ll find yourself standing next to an original Cobra...

And so it went with one Triumph besting another over the next few years until ultimately, the Gyronaut X-1 entered the scene in 1966. The fairing, designed by famed stylist Mr. Alex Tremulis (he worked for Cord, Duesenberg, Ford, and Tucker), was built by Mr. Vince Gardner (of Cord 810 fame) and would eventually set the bar for future streamliners...

While we're well-acquainted with Goodwood and Silverstone, the Salon Privé is rapidly gaining in popularity. It is held on a picturesque estate at Syon House, Brentford, which provides an excellent surrounding atmosphere. The show's overall feel is much different to most as it's a relaxing event, one can happily wander around the gardens with a glass of Pommery champagne while seeing and hearing some of the rarest cars on earth–not a bad way to spend a day.

Unbelievably, walking into the cavernous garage revealed seven (!) 959s, Canepa's personal McLaren P1, Outlaw 356s, a Maserati Birdcage, and a Porsche 917. The facilities are extensive and include countless jigs for full racecar rebuilds. What was the best part? The car wall. Oh, you don't have a car wall?

Pav stashed his camera and announced that he needed to wash Pismo Beach’s salt water from the Land Rover’s undercarriage. Wyatt quickly hopped in and did his best to hold on as Pav splashed into the river and sent water spraying up around the truck. With trains roaring past on the tracks above, Pav skidded and drifted across the wet concrete, giving his beloved Land Rover a much-needed bath.

The Lamborghini 350GTV prototype, shown in October of 1963, had provoked ambiguous responses from the press and public, so in the following five months it was also reengineered en route to becoming the 350GT. The young engineer Gian Paolo Dallara and his top assistant, Paolo Stanzani, who had been working with a shoestring budget, tested their revised V-12...

We had a blast driving around the outskirts of Bombay shooting the workhorse–putting her through her paces just as she was meant to be. The alacrity with which the Land Rover performs sixty-five years after conception still amazes us, the stiff ride clearly set up for rural roads, or the lack of them.

In late July, I was lucky enough to witness classic car racing for the first time. The Silverstone Classic is a massive gathering of classic car lovers from around the UK, and I don't think there's a better introduction to the spectacle of vintage metal anywhere else in the world.

It can’t exactly be said that Aston Martin was seeking a lift when it announced the DB6 at the 1965 London Motor Show. Rather, it was a relief from lift of the aerodynamic kind that figured as a raison d’être for the new car. The outgoing DB5 was a rollicking automobile, not to mention its stature as a screen star, being James Bond’s equivalent of the Lone Ranger’s Silver.
