car of the day. 500E

the legendary Mercedes-Benz 500E.  no it’s not a ‘regular’ W124 E-Class MB….the 500E was handbuilt by Porsche…..right alongside the also legendary Audi RS2.  It’s a very special car that was brought to the US during the time (unlike the RS2).  You can find them regularly on the 2nd hand market, and many people don’t even know the significance of the car………

0-60: 5.5 seconds; 326hp.

about 10,000 produced globally….1500 brought to the US Market.

M5? who needs an M5.  I’d much rather have this than an E34 M5.

wish i could read this website for more info, but i can’t be arsed to translate the whole thing!

foto of the day. 01312010.

one of the greatest cars ever made— the Bugatti Type 35b. the first time i saw one in person at the Cranbrook Concours, i just took a seat on the grass and stared at it for about 30 minutes.  I’ll never forget the way it made me feel…….

focus: Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato.

the original Lancia Fulvia is a total legend……and adding to the legend is this rare, but fascinating rebodied Fulvia redone by Zagato and sold in Limited Edition.  A couple of years ago, i had a chance to by an unrestored one of these, but passed it up just due to the huge amount of cash it would have costed to get it back to shape.  One day though, when i have enough loot to swing around, i want a Fulvia HF and a Fulvia Sport Zagato in my garage…….together!

taken from the Ultimate Car Page:

“In April 1965 the first prototype was ready and it was Elio Zagato himself who conducted the road tests. Before the end of the year the production of the Fulvia Sport 1.3 Zagato was started. As can be seen in the second picture, the rear hatch could be opened slightly electrically to improve ventilation while driving. The first production were powered by a 1.2 litre V4 engines, pumping out a decent 80 bhp. In 1967 the displacement was increased to 1.3 litres. This larger engine was available in two states of tune, 87 bhp for the Sport 1.3 and 93 bhp for the Sport 1.3S. In 1970 the Fulvia Sport was slightly restyled and a 115 bhp 1.6 litre engine was added to the line-up.”

Here are some of my favourite Fulvia Sport Zagato photographs:
