Comments & clarif ications

You’ve never had it so good • The optimistic class of ’62 kicked off a golden era for British sporting greats with the Triumph Spitfire, MGB and Lotus Elan

TRIUMPH SPITFIRE 4

LOTUS ELAN 1600

MGB

EXTRA TIME • Our three sports car greats sped past their original lifespans, becoming classics in their own lifetimes and eventually inspiring a new generation

THE GREAT IMPRESSION • This Chrysler Imperial’s fine engineering and Bohman & Schwartz Deco style proved to be the perfect extravagance for Hollywood’s first black superstar

FITTED OUT FOR A KING • Ordered new by a Belgian monarch, this sole surviving Vignale-bodied Aston Martin DB2/4 is back on form after decades in the doldrums

CEWWF CUT If you were going to build a single-seater, you probably wouldn’t start with a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. But this unlikely warhorse recently won its first race

WOLFSBURG’S MIRACLE BUG • Faced with the dismantling of its vast plants and apartments, this German industrial city was transformed by two men and one very special car

IVAN HIRST • SENIOR RESIDENT OFFICER

WOLFSBURG WUNDERKINDER

HEINRICH NORDHOFF • GENERAL DIRECTOR

MY FARE LANDAULET • This fastidiously restored 1926 Citroën could be the last-surviving link to the working streets of Paris

ON A SOFTER NOTE • The 2200 Spider represented the ambitions of Abarth and patron Fiat to strike at the higher order of Italian motoring, but it was destined to remain a rarity

PROLES’ ROYCES • Emerging from the confused depths of BMC’s product-planning studios, the Wolseley Six and Austin 3 Litre offered more charm than success

THE HEAT IS ON FOR PORSCHE

MEET THE FLEET

THE ALFA ROMEO REVELATION

JASON LEN • A tireless restorer of British sports cars who also has a passion for motorcycles
