Driven by Design: Ferrari Dino

The Dino was interesting as it helped to launch the career of designer Leonardo Fioravanti. He had been at Pininfarina for about two years when he was allowed to design the 206 GT and frankly, his inexperience shows. Even as the world was turning away from the voluptuous forms of the post-war years, the 206 GT clung onto them.

As much as any other car, the Ferrari 330 P4 is the embodiment and culmination of an entire era of racing. With its low-slung stance and voluptuous lines, it is also among the most visually stunning cars ever produced. Combine these factors and the word “icon” slips to the tip of one’s tongue.

As the summer sun heats up our office the natural inclination is to dream of cooling off. And given our specialty is vintage luxury, those thoughts often circle back to wooden boats, or more specifically, the ultimate wooden boat. The Aquarama, Riva’s most popular boat, was in production for a staggering thirty-four years.

Every Friday night was a social event, old and young alike would come to the garage, admire the car, talk about their day, and then talk about the car. The old men loved it and remembered it from their youth, the young guys loved its rarity. I remember sitting in it while Angelo tuned the carburettors, and I'd dream of getting my license and driving it.

De Tomaso Pantera Will Rock You

De Tomaso Pantera Will Rock You

By Derek Shiekhi / 27 Jun 2014

"De Tomaso Pantera" may not translate to "power metal" in English, but this '72 GTS certainly embodies those words. A tuned suspension should help the future owner keep this rust-free California specimen shiny-side-up and able to perform many more concerts via screeching tires and growling exhaust.

Lancia Rally Car is Half Practical, Half Uncut Awesome

After Mr. Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Mr. Sergio Cresto died when their Lancia Delta S4 plunged into a ravine and exploded, the FIA abolished Group B Rallying mere hours later. Similar to Formula 1, no one wanted to see people dying, safety was reconsidered, and this is how Group A came to be. Regardless, driving a rally legend like the Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II makes you feel completely different on the road. If you need to justify it, well, it's got four doors.

All was looking good until two days prior when the forecast called for a heavy rainstorm near Wendover that Friday. My heart sank. Was the dream shoot going to be cancelled because Mother Nature had her own plans?

The race runs clockwise around the 2.9 km perimeter of Bergamo's walls just as in 1935 when racing legend Tazio Nuvolari won the race in his Alfa Romeo P3. The Piazza della Cittadella served as the paddock and it was here where the action was centered the morning of June 15. People strolled around, having a look at all the wonderful cars, and pausing for an espresso at one of the cafes.
