They will retain a pressed steel frame, leaf spring suspension and 400mm mechanical drum brakes, along with the original car’s supercharged four-cylinder 16-valve 4398cc engine, which makes 240bhp.'
Is it April 1st already? I can foresee some ruffled feathers in the Historic Racing world and Bentley Drivers Club........

I’m going to see if we can copy the post to Historic Racing Today....

Ok, that is kinda cool. And nice to see not trying to update or improve the cars much, surprised they didn't try to update and hide disk brakes in there somehow.

The 812 GTS is the first mass-production V12 droptop by Ferrari since the 365 "Daytona" GTS.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

The Super Sport 300+ uses an uprated version of the Chiron's quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine to produce 1578bhp - a 100bhp increase. A longer-ratio gearbox has been fitted to reach top speeds of more than 300mph, compared with the Chiron's restricted 261mph; the Super Sport 300+ will also be electronically limited out of the factory, but Bugatti has yet to reveal what its limit will be.

Lamborghini Sian

'The Aventador SVJ’s naturally aspirated 6.5-litre 12-cylinder unit has been uprated from 759 to 774bhp with the addition of titanium intake valves, and is mated to a 48v electric motor producing 34bhp, for a combined total output of 808bhp. In what Lamborghini claims is a first for low-voltage hybrid powertrains, the electric motor is integrated into the gearbox and connected to the wheels for low-speed reversing and parking manoeuvres. The charismatic sound of the V12, Lamborghini assures, has been preserved.'

Can’t wait to hear posters reactions to the front end of the CONCEPT BMW 4 series Coupe at Frankfurt.....

Sorry I haven’t got any pics, but no doubt they will appear at some point!

I feel the best way to describe it without troubling the Autocensor would be....distinctive in a vomit inducing way.

That bloody grille!
Representative of the original 328 from history they say.... IIRC that was tall, angled back and quite slim, not short, fat and falling forwards. Good riddance.

Look identical to my eyes:




I've found an angle from which the car (and grille) does look good though:

But when he gets to the charging point, if it’s ecotricity it will be broken, and if it’s BP there will be PHEVs sitting there.....
