    Very intersting car. This is the Maserati 450S Costin Coupe, built for Le Mans 1956, and driven by Stirling Moss.
    the car was designed by Franck Costin on a 450S chassis, for which he entirely redesigned the body, cockpit, ducting etc... The car was really complex and innovative, but with the short time left to Zagato for building it after Costin's design, the italians totally passed by the purposeful specificities of the design. Moreover, the full plexiglass roof originally planned was abandonned for Le Mans safety rules reasons.
    When Costin arrived at Le Mans to discover the finnished car, Colin Chapman, with a big smile, suggested him to go have a look at his sieve, considering all the holes the italians had cut into the originally sleek body.
    Moss came to Costin telling him the ductings for the radiator and for fresh air in the cockpit were bodged so hot air was now going into the carburettor intakes... Instead, Zagato put an airscoop which was too small, and far from the site of maximum air pressure.
    The result was a car which was not even faster than a standard 450s Maserati.
    We could go on and on about the mistakes made from the original design, like the windscreen wiper used which probably came for an average Fiat parked at the factory instead of a specially sourced aircraft one from De Havilland, the lack of underbody enclosure, or the fuel filler sticking up like a flag pole...
    Still, the car was very fast, but only pulling 6200rpm instead of the 7000 expected.
    Unfortunately, the 2 Maserati 450s entered finally retired because of a rear axle failure.

    The car was later stripped of the internals and scrapped at the factory.
    In 1958, an American bought the car, and restored it with Fantuzzi, to put it on the road. In spite of a lot of modifications, like an 25cm longer wheelbase, the car was used on the road, which must have been quite a beast with nearly 200mph.
    Unfortunately, the original design of Franck Costin never had the chance to compete, which would have had a serious chance of winning at Le Mans.

    Good point Rhys!

    "The Isle of Man is located in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland. The island is not part of the United Kingdom or European Union, but has the status of 'crown dependency', similar to Jersey and Guernsey, with an independent administration. Its inhabitants are British citizens."

    Good enough for me and my filing system!

    H'mm. Yes, I was wondering if the system will crash or roll over to zero.

    Might have to celebrate by re-posting one or two favourites, or accept requests!

    Rolls Marina
    "The Marina Rolls Royce was the brainchild of Alan Mann then running Andrews Garage in Southwick and later to become better known for being the proprietor of Alan Mann Racing. The Marina was designed and built by Malcolm King who had sold it to Alan and Brian Mann Its multi-tubular spaceframe chassis carried a conventional front-mounted radiator and its main longeron tubes performed double duty, carrying coolant to and from the Rolls-Royce power unit. Girling discs brakes were fitted, while the front and rear suspension systems were essentially Formula 1 Cooper, and it was Alan and Brian Mann who managed to cram the 6 litre Rolls Royce engine into the multi-tubular spaceframe chassis in much the same way as the Cooper King Cobra. The result was a well balanced car with a low frontal area."

    Seems that it should have been named Marina Rolls not Rolls Marina in my filing system!

    Fair enough Roger.

    Our Rovers, a few year's back. Both excellent trouble free secondhand cars I might add - 1999. The MR2 MRS plate was originally bought for my wife's Toyota MR2. At the Auckland launch of the MGF, I enquired about 'MRS 2 MR', so I acquired that too.

    Left - 214 Cabriolet - which was a lively performer. Rover 420GSi on the right. Last saloon before switching to Land Rover Freelanders.

    ...and the only family car we ever had in the UK - and that didn't last long, as it had an appetite for half shafts. Effectively scrapped for 5 quid in 1965. Now only about a dozen left in the world.

    Singer - taken from a glass quarter plate negative, probably 1952. Note the radio aerial, but I can't remember it having a radio, even though Dad, ex Royal Signals, was a part time radio repairer.
