    No real car porn thread so, here goes.

    I was lusting outside a recently moved and reopened car showroom last night and wonder. is it cars the sell, or judging by this link works of art. Cars really are for driving, not storing, such a waste.
    Generally, car prices are going through the roof.

    Ferrari/Morris/Ferrari/Morris/Ferrari/Morris/Fer... I just can't make my mind up. The Ferrari is prettier because it is red and the dealer says it is "a car for the portfolio". Trouble is my portfolio is only A2. He also gives two different mileages for it - 900 and 380. One of those figures must be wrong.

    I don't really like Morris 1000s though. They are horribly sluggish and underpowered. And in any case I don't have a license.

    One of the blokes from an Italian car forum I frequent has just got one of these:

    Nice looking car, much better than that overgrown Aussie Landy above. The Alfa badge looks a bit odd over the radiator intake though

    That's not the radiator - those are in the back because its 2.0 V8 engine is in the rear because it's awesome.

    Oh yes, there wouldn't even be room for a 500 CC engine in the low front of that car. Stupid me.

    Here is a video of the Jaguar XJ13, while I am here:

    It's interesting to consider how mighty the XJ13 would have been if Jaguar had managed to build more than one and gone racing with it. It would have been pitted against the GT40 and Ferrari 330Ps at the height of their power at the VQHdM and then run into the 3.0l engine/50 car homologation rule in 1968 that ended the Ferrari P's racing career.

    If Paddy Power were taking bets on you showing up with that Jag I'd have enough to get one of these...

    If I had 11 grand like it was nothing, I'd buy this. I love it so much.

    The car has a new 4-7ltr V8 which has covered only 1500miles the gear box and clutch are all new as well, she can also run with a touch of nitrous which can be switched on that will give a extra 150 BHP

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    • Engine power (BHP):350
    • Torque (lbs/ft):400
    • Top speed (MPH):150
    • Acceleration:0 to 62 in 4 seconds
    • Fuel consumption (MPG):20
    • Driven wheels:Rear Wheel Drive
    I'd kill myself in about 10 minutes obviously.

    This is turning into car scat rather than car porn - especially that Capri.

    Here's a Black Falcon Racing SLS GT3 winning at a rain soaked Nordschliefe to redress the balance.

    I'd quite like an SLS as I don't think we'll ever be seeing cars with such powerful NA engines again.

    It never raced because the Automobile Club de l'Ouest altered the technical specs for Le Mans prototypes and that meant the XJ13 was shelved. Jaguar were originally planning a racing comeback with it.

    The rule changes didn't come in until the 1968 race so the XJ13 could, theoretically, have competed in 1967. I think it would have got humped by the GT40s and Ferrari 330s though.

    Here's some more car porn: the Foyt/Gurney GT40 that won in 1967.

    When I lived in Portugal there was one for sale for about three years. I would have loved to buy it, but didn't enquire about the price, I assumed it was out of my reach.

    I was watching a barn find Vega suitable for restoration at auction. It went for over $200k...

    The one for sale was in good running order, so I guess worth a lot of money.

    1957 Saab Sonett. A reminder that Saab didn't always just make ugly, boring cars for bicurious geography teachers.

    600kg and 750cc two stroke 3 cylinder engine. I'd love one.

    The interior is an equally elegant work of mid-century Scandinavian minimalism.
