Pick your Poison: Two Delta Integrales For Sale In Atlanta

Your choice of car is an undeniable form of self-expression. Regardless of the back story, or how you acquired it, a car says something about you. This is by no means a ground breaking revelation, just an observation we live here at Petrolicious. We would even venture to say that there is a good amount of self discovery as to ‘who you are’ and ‘what type of car person you are’ when you’re deciding which car to buy.

The Poster Child

The Poster Child

I don’t really want to drive it. I’m staring at the key, the car and the thin but very important set of loan papers on my desk, and quite frankly, I’m intimidated. I don’t want to join the club of automotive writers who have wrecked an exotic, plunging into professional failure and certain bankruptcy. I simply want to take a deep breath and bask in the experience of being a temporary custodian of one of the of the world’s most recognizable super cars.

I feel like being in front of some abstract art: the SZ is something you’re unable to understand immediately. After a minute, or ten, I start seeing its pureness. Hate or love it, the SZ is maybe the best-driving car Alfa Romeo built, from the very first up to the Giulia GTA and even the new 4C. With its looks as they are, it’s not a design exercise for museums, at all—but one for driving!

While the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the flagship auto show at Monterey, the highly exclusive auctions are where the real gems cross the stage. On the block there will be plenty of gorgeous metal to whet any enthusiast's appetite, from Miuras to 300 SL Gullwings, to McLaren F1s, but this year, there is one crown jewel up for grabs that will shine brighter than most: the 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione 'Tour de France' by Scaglietti..

“I think it’s the car that put Lamborghini on the map,” says Dennis Varni, and we’d have to agree. Owner of a stunning Miura P400 S since 1979, Varni is an enthusiast with varied tastes, from Bonneville Salt Flats racers to a Fiat Topolino. But the Miura…the Miura is in a league of its own. It’s also something that he’d lusted after since he first laid eyes upon one.

Best of both worlds: A Ferrari V8-powered Dino

Best of both worlds: A Ferrari V8-powered Dino

By Jayson Fong / 10 Aug 2015 / 21 Comments Read More

The Dino name has always had an interesting place among Ferrari purists, but as the car has aged, it is evident that any stigma it once wore has worn away.

Today, market values for the Dino are often dictated by how well they have been restored and how true to the original they are. This point is clearly something that does not faze Kevin O’Rourke, owner of Surrey-based Ferrari restoration experts Mototechnique, and owner of the one of a kind Dino 246 GTS that sat quietly in front of me.

It is impossible not to appreciate cars like the Maserati A6GCS. At the very least, it's a time capsule to a different era in the history of motoring. Their stunning simplicity, the exposure to open air, and the intoxicating sound of the in-line six cylinder engine contributes to the car’s beauty. Being in such cars is like experiencing a piece of kinetic sculpture: on this example, every mechanical detail is wrapped in artful Fantuzzi bodywork.

There’s only one thing to can pull me out of my bed on a wet Sunday morning like this: Ferrari. I’m going to drive a 1982 208 GTB, first year of production with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and 220 horsepower. It’s the first road-going turbo from Maranello, the smallest V8 ever built, and the perfect car for who want to start driving in red…for many reasons.

There was a time when “sports car” meant a car designed for sport, that is, a car whose primary, and often singular purpose was the sport of driving. Carrying groceries or kids was secondary, and the idea of integrating a purpose-built receptacle for your beverage would have been laughed at.

Going on a vacation with a pre-war car is heroic. It's true that many enthusiasts take their cars on long trips like the Mille Miglia or the Coppa Nuvoari, but to do a trip on your own, relying solely on your companions and a few spare parts is quite an adventure, even by today’s standards. The owners of these machines drove all the way from Germany and were going on vacation: isn't this just plain cool?
