5 new cars added
Honda RA272 ’65
The Formula 1 car that brought Honda its first victory.
Thanks to innovative ideas and visionary engineering skills, Honda has made a number of technological revolutions. A great example of this is their first foray into Formula 1 in 1964, when the car manufacturer was still relatively unknown. The machine they designed was the RA271, which used an aluminum body over a space frame body with a 1.5L V12 engine in an unusual midship transverse position. However, his uniqueness would be his downfall, and he failed to achieve anything in his debut year. In 1965, Honda radically redesigned the car, resulting in the RA272. The RA272E engine was a more efficient version of the previous V12 using lighter components. The rear suspension design has been changed from inboard to outboard, reducing weight from 525kg to 498kg, a major improvement. Sophomore Ronnie Bucknum was behind the wheel, along with rookie driver Richie Ginter.
Italdesign Exeneo Vision Gran Turismo Street and Off-Road mode
A high-performance luxury car prepared as a “beautifully wrapped gift”.
Italdesign was founded in 1968 in Turin, Italy and has designed and built more than 300 production cars and presented more than 100 concept cars at the world’s most important motor shows. Many of its details were featured in Gran Turismo. Some of the cars developed by Italdesign later became real movie stars, such as the De Lorean DMC 12 that starred in the Back to the Future trilogy, or the Lotus Esprit driven by Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me . The Italdesign Exeneo Vision Gran Turismo continues the long Italian tradition of Gran Turismo cars, albeit updated with advanced technology. Inspired by the off-road engine of 2013, the Italdesign Parcour compact GT, this concept car has four different chassis settings (track, snow, off-road and city) and has been designed to be driven both on and off the track. road tracks The powerful V10 mid-engine, together with two 200 kW (268.2 hp) electric motors, provides a total output of 910 kW (1219.9 hp), allowing the Exeneo VGT to reach a top speed of 236.1 mph with acceleration from 0 to 62.1 mph in 2.5 seconds. A 7-speed gearbox, individual all-wheel drive (IWD) and a KERS recuperation system complete the powertrain. To ensure maximum stability, the intelligent suspension automatically adapts to different types of terrain.
Citroën DS 21 Pallas 70
A historical vision of the future from France.
Citroen were committed to front-wheel drive, and this DS is their masterpiece, built with all the cutting-edge technology of the time. It first appeared at the Salon de l’Automobile in 1955. While many other manufacturers were still producing pre-war style cars, the DS was a stunning vision of the future. Thanks to its avant-garde aerodynamic body and revolutionary hydropneumatic suspension system, it was nicknamed the “flying saucer”. Development was led by André Lefebvre, and the relatively large 4.8m body was designed by Italian Flaminio Bertoni, who also worked on the classic 2CV. Thanks to this forward-looking design, the popularity of the DS did not subside for some time. Including various equipment and engine upgrades, the car continued to be produced for 20 years. In 1964, the “Pallas” model was supplemented with luxurious interior and exterior elements. Then in 1967 the car got a more modern look with 2 round headlights replaced by 4 lights in closed units.
Porsche 911 Carrera RS (901) ’73
The first ever Porsche 911, the elusive RennSport.
The 911 Carrera RS 2.7, which appeared in 1973, was the first model in the long history of the Porsche 911 to bear the RS badge. The RS stands for “Rennsport” or simply “racing sport” in English and, as the name suggests, it was developed as a homologation model for the FIA Group 4 category. The 2.4L engine from the base model 1973 911 S was enlarged to 2.7L, now producing 207.1 hp. There is an air baffle in the front that allows you to add an oil cooler. The rear of the car features the iconic ducktail spoiler as standard with rear fenders stretched to accommodate the new wider rear tires. The Carrera RS 2.7 was available in three grades: Touring, Sport and Racing, although even the luxury Touring model weighed less than 1100kg.
