2023-09-28: More details and images of Aston Martin Valhalla ...
Aston Martin Valhalla Aston Martin has remained tight lipped about the next mid-engined supercar until this week when further details and images were released of the Valhalla. Due to arrive in showrooms in 2024, the high-performance machine is built around a carbon-fibre composite monocoque and combines a four-litre internal combustion engine with three electric motors. The combined output should be very close to 1,000 bhp, which is more than previously announced. The V8 petrol engine is equipped with a pair of turbochargers mounted inside the 'V'. Aston Martin explains in great detail how the current Formula 1 program has influenced the development of the Valhalla, which also received input from drivers Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll. Production of the Valhalla is limited at just 999 examples.

2023 Goodwood Revival report and 210-shot gallery Earlier this month, the annual Goodwood Revival celebrated the 25th anniversary of the event intself and also 75 years of racing on the Goodwood Motor Circuit. Run in the hottest conditions in living memory and made just that little bit more interesting by some rain showers on Sunday afternoon, the 2023 Revival was more than a fitting celebration. In addition to the races, there were also parades commemorating 75 years of Lotus and what would have been Carroll Shelby's 100th birthday. Among the many highlights were the water-soaked RAC TT Celebration Trophy, Jenson Button and Jimmie Johnson going head-to-head in the first St. Mary's race and Aaron Shelby leading the Carroll Shelby parade in the very MG TC that his grandfather had driven to victory in his very first race.
Our photographers were on hand and braved the changeable conditions to capture the 25th Goodwood Revival in its entirety. The result is a 210-shot gallery that serves to illustrate a detailed report.

2023-09-22: Tribute to American collector Peter Mullin ...
Delahaye 145 Grand Prix We were deeply saddened to learn that American collector Peter W. Mullin has passed away. A great enthusiast of French cars, Mullin had built an immaculate collection included some of the finest Bugattis, Delahayes, Talbot Lagos and Delages. He was generous with his collection, showing and racing many of his cars at events all around the world. The crowning achievement was the creation of the Mullin Automotive Museum. Among the most famous cars in the collection are the Pebble Beach winning Voisin C25 Aerodyne, one of four Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantics built and a superb example of the glorious Talbot Lago T150C SS Figoni & Falaschi Teardrop Coupé. Clearly one of his personal favourites was the legendary 'Million Franc' Delahaye 145 Grand Prix, which was driven to victory in the 1937 French Grand Prix. Delahaye built five of these cars, two of which were fitted with road-going Chapron bodywork, which are also in the Mullin Collection. The French Grand Prix winning Delahaye 145 was restored ahead of the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and was subsequently raced by Mullin himself at several editions of the Monterey Motorsports Reunion.

2023 Dix Mille Tours du Castellet report and 200-shot gallery After a brief summer break, the Peter Auto historic racing season resumed earlier this month with the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet. Hosted by the unique Paul Ricard circuit in the South of France, the event has been on the calendar since 2010. This year's thirteenth edition featured all the familiar Peter Auto race grids and also demonstration runs for Formula 1 cars, and recent Le Mans Prototypes and GT racers. Even though we are well into the season, there were several new cars to the series, which included the unique Lamborghini Diablo Jota GT1 and the only Lotus Elise GT1 that raced at Le Mans.
It was a very busy weekend with the two-hour Sixties' Endurance race starting at sunset and the event not concluding until early in the evening on Sunday. As always, our photographers were on hand and have captured the Dix Mille Tours in its entirety with this class-by-class 200-shot gallery and detailed report as the result.

2023-09-15: Three iconically liveried Porsche competition cars ...
Porsche 917/30 At this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, Porsche's 75th anniversary was celebrated. Today, we have taken a look at three cars that starred on the hill and are painted in iconic liveries. The earliest is this 917/30, which is the prototype for the all-conquering Can-Am racer. Initially used for testing, it features a variable wheelbase. Following its test and development duties, chassis 917/30-001 was successfully raced in the Interserie Championship by Herbert Müller. It is today painted in the Vaillant colours used during the 1975 season.
Sporting the instantly recognisable Jägermeister livery is this 911 Carrera RSR 3.0. Using a bare tub, it was built into a complete race car by the Kremer brothers. It was raced with considerable success, usually with Helmut Kelleners behind the wheel. Today, 005 0005 is one of very few genuine Jägermeister cars that is not in the collection of Eckhard Schimpf, whose grandfather founded the spirits company.
Run by the Swiss Brun Motorsport team, this 962C was raced only twice in period. It was driven by Walter Brun and Jesus Pareja, who was backed by Spanish oil company Repsol. Still in highly original condition, 962-163 was recently acquired by its current owner, who demonstrated it at Goodwood.

2023-09-12: New Lotus Emeya, Bizzarrini Giotto and off-road Mustang Mach-E ...
Lotus Emeya Lotus has expanded its line-up with the all-new, four-door Emeya. The spiritual successor to the Lotus Carlton/Omega was unveiled in New York City and is a battery electric vehicle. The striking machine comes with a choice of drivetrains, with the most powerful producing a combined 905 bhp, which is sent to all four wheels through a two-speed gearbox. Production of the Emeya is set to begin in 2024.
A more traditional sports car that broke cover is this Bizzarrini Giotto. The mid-engined supercar is styled by Giorgietto and Fabrizio Giugiaro and powered by a bespoke V12. Developed together with Cosworth, the naturally aspirated engine displaces 6,626 cc, which is a reference to Giotto Bizzarrini's birthday; June 6th, 1926. Development is ongoing and the first Giotto should arrive with customers early in 2026.
Jumping on the off-road bandwagon, Ford created the Mustang Mach-E Rally. As the name suggests, it is a raised version of the all-electric Mustang. The Mach-E Rally, boast a pair of electric motors, which are good for a combined 480 bhp.
Another high-performance all-electric machine revealed this week is the Volkswagen ID.X Performance. It debuted last weekend at the ID. Treffen in Locarno Switzerland and is based on the all-new ID.7.
