ABOUT THE CAR

The Sprint Speciale was Carrozzerie Bertone’s answer to Alfa Romeo’s hope for a car to compete with Zagato’s race winning Giuliette Sprint Zagato. It debuted in prototype form at Turin Auto Show in 1957. It’s shape took cues from Bertone’s extremely aerodynamic Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica or “BAT” show cars. The production Sprint Speciale was designed by Franco Scaglione. The cars drag coefficient was 0.28 and was not surpassed for over 25 years.

ABOUT THE CAR

The X-1/9 was the Fiat produced mid-engine sports car commonly referred to as “The Baby Ferrari”. The auto was designed by Marcello Gandini for Bertone. The car was a marvel of efficient space utilization. It incudes, a targa top which stows in the front truck, 4 wheel independent suspension, disk brakes and a 5-speed transmission. All of which made this little gem a stand out vehicle for its time.

ABOUT THE CAR

The Daimler SP250 is a sports car which was built by British manufacturer Daimler in Conventry, England from 1959 to 1964. During these years, only 2,645 cars were produced, and approximately 1,200 were designed with left-hand drive. Very few of these cars remain in driving condition in the United States. This car was purchased October 1980, in Croton, New York, from its second owner. It had been stored uncovered in a back yard over a grass lawn for many years. At the time, the engine was seized, brakes completely rusted together, frame outriggers were rusted in many places causing the body of the car to flex. The fiberglass body was removed from the frame, to replace all weak spots and to rebuild the outriggers, to make the frame straight and solid.

The engine was rebuilt twice, the second time professionally. The brakes entirely redone. All seals and transmission replaced. Everything in the front of the car is new, except for the front coils springs. The electrical system remains stock, with modification of an auxiliary electric fan used for cooling at low speed. The interior was redone in 2009, and the car was painted in 2013.

ABOUT THE CAR

I horse traded for my 1960 Porsche 356 Roadster #88775 about 10 years ago.  I had a rough project roadster and a 1973 Porsche 911S and traded both with a friend for my driver roadster.  It was a decision I have never regretted.  It is a true driver, I autocross it, tour with it, and use it as designed, not a show queen, but as a sports car.

ABOUT THE CAR

This Datsun 240z is a first year production model with mild performance modifications, typical of the era.  The 240z was wildly successful, and one could argue this Japanese sports car virtually eroded the British sportscar market in the US.  This Z was featured in a promotional video for the Nissan GTR. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkYgIlvExBa  The car has run the historic Lime Rock park on a few occasions.  This is a relatively original, un-restored car- a true survivor.

ABOUT THE CAR

My car lived the majority of it’s life in California as an E production class race car, it was also used in gymkhana and as a daily driver. I purchased the car in 2001.  It required a full restoration after years of hard living.  We now use the car for club events and touring.
