Mighty machines from Goodwood, Zagato Maserati headed for auction and the AM Valkyrie

One of the biggest stars (no pun intended) at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed was this Mercedes-Benz W125 from 1937. This particular car is believed to be the only privately owned example of what was for over forty years the most powerful Grand Prix car ever built. It featured a massive supercharged straight-eight engine that produced close to 600 bhp. The car survived the War in what was to become Eastern Germany and after the W125 was brought to England by Colin Crabbe, it was subsequently owned by Nigel Corner and Bernie Ecclestone.
Building for endurance racing, this Jaguar XJR-12 also proved to be the weapon of choice at Goodwood as specialist Justin Law managed to set the fastest time in the shoot-out at Goodwood even though the car looked wider than the track at some points. This particular XJR-12 was the very last of the V12-engined Jaguar Group C cars and was built specifically for the 1993 Daytona 24 Hours.
American auctioneer Gooding is gradually releasing the highlights due to cross the block next month at the Pebble Beach Auctions. One of the most recent addition to the lot list is this lovely Maserati A6G/54 2000. Delivered new to a Joe Alphabet in September of 1956, it is the last of the A6Gs clothed by Zagato with their striking Coupe body work. Chassis 2186 is estimated to sell for over $4 million.
Aston Martin, meanwhile, released more exterior and interior images of the upcoming Valkyrie hypercar, which is being developed together with Formula 1 team Red Bull Racing. Light, very compact and hugely powerful, the Adrian Newey designed machine should be blisteringly fast, eclipsing all the competition over a single lap.
