Der Audi Sport Quattro war Audis Antwort auf Lancia und ihren 037. Neben mehreren Siegen in der Gruppe B gewann der Sport Quattro mit Michele Mouton am Steuer den Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Um das Auto für den Rennsport zu homologieren, musste Audi 200 straßentaugliche Exemplare bauen. Am Ende wurden nur 161 Autos hergestellt, von denen zwei in der Sammlung Seiner Hoheit Aga Khan landeten. Das blaue Auto in diesem Video gehörte ihm bis vor kurzem.

The 288 GTO marked the revival of the designation “GTO”, for Gran Turismo Omologato. In Ferrari’s world, those three letters are holy.

Schaltkulisse goes to Italy to discover Bugatti's rebirth place in Campogalliano, Italy. The Italian era of Bugatti is one of the most significant for the brand and is a human story, built off passion and dedication. This documentary is our tribute to the brand of all superlatives. We take with us some very special cars: a Bugatti Type 13 Brescia, a Bugatti Chiron, as well as two cars built in that very factory: an EB110 GT and a one of three, Bugatti EB112. Our documentary displays the testimonies of people who worked sleepless nights to revive the brand in the late 80's and early 90's. They talk us through their emotional stories and personal anecdotes at La Fabbrica Blu.


With a suite of special-order options including the subtle Elephant Ivory paintwork, cream vinyl and red tartan interior, factory high-performance straight-six engine and lightweight aluminium body, this prizewinning Mercedes-Benz 300SL isn’t just rare – it’s one of a kind… “I always want the newest, best and fastest car,” Charles Robin A. Grant was reported to have once said. The wealthy British industrialist was the original owner of this spectacular Mercedes-Benz 300SL, chassis #6500015. And as you’d expect of a man with the wherewithal to splash out on such automotive exotica, Mr Grant went to town with his ‘Gullwing’ order.12:25 AM
