Steve McQueen’s Porsche 356 (1970)
With Jacqueline Bisset (thanks automotiveporn!)
Dick Wharton / Alfa Romeo 308 (1940)
During the Grand Prix that happened in Alexandria Bay (New York). The 308 was built in 1938 for the 3 liter class, with power output ranging from around 220 to 300bhp.
Porsche 906E (1967)
The E stands for the german word for “injection”, which I’m too lazy to search for you today. (edit: about 10 people have already mailed me with the word Einspritzen. I’m guessing this is it, unless they were all insulting me in german).
Sixty five 906 were built, of these 9 prototypes with fuel injection.
Volkswagen Beetle Rally (2011)
In Iran, the good people at the Beetle Club apparently do this every year.
A 220 mile race in Beetles, with some snow to give the pilots a proper scare. Fantastic, I’d say count me in! If I had a Beetle and lived in Iran.
Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto (1966)
Driven by Siamese kittens.
(I am so buying this)
Maserati Ghibli Spyder (1970)
Giugiaro styling and the wind blowing in your hair.
Ferrari 250 GTO (1962)
Not only one of the greatest pieces of automotive history to come out to the world, but a definitive turning point for Ferrari in every possible way.
In 1960, Bizzarrini was still working for Ferrari and had at its hands the responsibility for the 250 GTO: he cleverly went for the 3 liter V12 and the base body of the 250 GT SWB. He then began working with Scaglietti to work on the body of the Omologata.
After many fights with other engineers and old man Enzo himself, Bizzarrini was invited to leave Ferrari for good, being replaced by Mauro Forghieri who completed the project.
Mercedes-Benz 190SL (1959)
But that you already knew.
