The Sunbeam Tiger turns 50 this year. The Tiger is a high-performance V8 version of the British Rootes Group’s Sunbeam Alpine roadster, designed in part by Carroll Shelby and produced from 1964 until 1967. Shelby had carried out a similar V8 conversion on the AC Cobra, and hoped to be offered the contract to produce the Tiger at his facility in America. Rootes decided instead to contract the assembly work to Jensen at West Bromwich in England, and pay Shelby a royalty on every car produced.Two major versions of the Tiger were built: the Series I (1964–67) was fitted with the 260 cu in (4.3 L) Ford V8; the Series II, of which only 633 were built in the final year of Tiger production, was fitted with the larger Ford 289 cu in (4.7 L) engine. Two prototype and extensively modified versions of the Series I competed in the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans, but neither completed the race. Production ended in 1967 soon after the Rootes Group was taken over by Chrysler

These cars were not loved in post war Britain circa 1950 and as such not many of this particular model survived. Especially the ‘S’ variant (twin carbs and 100 horse power) which this car is.
Purchased by the previous owner in November 2002, she had been converted to be a rally car and the interior had been stripped out, the body work was in poor condition and the engine and mechanical parts were worn out. She was painted maroon at that time.
The owner did basic mechanical improvements and got the car ready to be used in a Classic Car Rally – 5000 miles from Cape Town, through Namibia, along the Skeleton Coast, through Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya. The car performed well, the only problems being some of the modifications that had been made, like the alternator shredding fan belts. She would have obtained a gold medal if the driver had not been ill and missed a check point time; she had therefore to settle for a silver medal.
On returning to the UK the car was given a full mechanical, bodywork and interior restoration, which took over two and a half years to complete. This required the purchase of five donor vehicles in order to collect all the parts necessary to finish her off properly. She is now in perfect condition and drives very well.
The Embiricos Bentley, as it is now known, was the fastest saloon car in Britain before the war, and certainly the most stylish. Chassis number B-27-LE was a special commission by Greek gentleman motor racer and shipping magnate André Maris Embiricos. Designed by Frenchman Georges Paulin and built by Marcel Pourtout in July 1938, the magnificent aerodynamic ‘Continental’ set high-speed records and went on to race at Le Mans three times.
It was probably the most refined motor car ever to have competed at La Sarthe. Today the one-off Embiricos Bentley is owned by Californian-based Arturo Keller, a man well known for never selling anything!
Send this to someone who is a bike nut………amazing!
Dear Santa, I have seen just what i want for Christmas, in yellow would be lovely if not red is fine!
Famous for its iconic gull-wing doors, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL is reminiscent of a bird in flight — and fly it does. Developed as a commercial version of the Mercedes-Benz W194 race car, the 300SL was the first consumer vehicle to incorporate direct injection and also the fastest production car of its time, with a top speed of 161 mph. The spirit of the 300SL lives on today in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, whose elongated body style and characteristic gull-wing doors pay tribute to the classic sports coupe; however, for many, nothing can quite replicate the innovative spirit and excitement of the original
