|Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster 1962|
Launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Type was nothing short of a revelation. With its heady blend of supercar performance, breathtaking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left rivals reeling and customers clamouring, while early sports car racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others, helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, the model's combination of all-round independent suspension (torsion-bar front / coil-sprung rear) rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent road holding and handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a 'straight port' DOHC cylinder head, its indomitable 3781cc straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox (with synchromesh on 2nd, 3rd and 4th), it reputedly enabled the E-type to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and onto 150mph. Achingly beautiful yet viciously quick, the E-type remains for many the ultimate production Jaguar.

|Austin A35 Saloon 1959|
Introduced in 1956, the A35 replaced the highly successful Austin A30. The name reflected the larger and more powerful 34hp A-Series engine enabling a slightly higher top speed and better acceleration. Similar in appearance to the A30 except for a larger rear window aperture and a painted front grill with chrome horse-shoe surround, both had 13"" wheels and was offered as a two or four door saloon, 'Countryman' estate and van. The A35 was a successfully raced in its day and can still be seen today at historic race meetings.
|Volkswagen Scirocco Mk.II Storm 1984|
The Scirocco is a three-door coupé undergoing two generations of development between 1974 and 1992 before being re-introduced for a third generation in August 2008. Volkswagen began work on the car during the early 1970's as the replacement for the ageing Karmann Ghia coupé. The platform of the Golf and Jetta was used to underpin the new Scirocco, although almost every part of the car was re-engineered in favour of a sportier drive and the model's all-new styling resulted in a sleeker and sportier car than either the Golf or Jetta. A heavily re-designed Mk.II variant went on sale in 1982; a unique feature of which was the location of the rear spoiler midway up the glass on the rear hatch. A mid-cycle update occurred in 1984 which included minor changes over the 1982 model; a redesigned air conditioning compressor, a modified brake master cylinder with in-line proportioning valves and a brake light switch mounted to the pedal instead of on the master cylinder, also a new space-saver spare wheel was added, which provided room for a larger fuel tank. Leather interior, power windows and mirrors, air conditioning, and a manual sunroof were options for all years. As with the first generation Scirocco's, the car was assembled on behalf of Volkswagen by Karmann of Osnabrück.
