Aston DB4GT antics

Classic Cars

Quentin Willson • I’ve just struck historical gold with this silver Jaguar XJ-S – and there’s no reason why you can’t make an equally exciting discovery…

John Fitzpatrick • Driving an ailing Holden to victory at Bathurst in ’76 was a struggle but recognising an Aussie TV personality turned out to be even harder

THE LEADING EDGE • This racing 3.0 CSL was the very first car to emerge from the new BMW Motorsport workshop. Now restored, we drive it on track

GUIDING LEICHT • This is where modern motor sport-bred BMWs began – on the road in the 3.0CSL in its earliest, purest form

RAPID RESPONSE • Despite its suburban lines, this BMW E3 Kombi is the lone survivor of three built by BMW Motorsport, designed to keep up with speeding rally cars

‘AT THE START WE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A WORKSHOP’ • Jochen Neerpasch founded BMW Motorsport GmbH 50 years ago. He recalls its origins, the CSL’s racing evolution, and an era which would become critical for BMW’s future

SECOND CHANCE • In the Sixties a boatbuilder developed the dormant Ogle GT for racing. We drive the sole Fletcher GT survivor

‘It was bought as a project – and it hid plenty of horrors’ • Hunting down a Lamborghini Miura ripe for restoration was about finding the best candidate, not the biggest wreck. That still left plenty for Iain Tyrrell’s team to do

MY FAVOURITE TOOL

LIFE STORY OF A Jaguar XJ • Still serving its first owner dutifully, this 1995 Sovereign has been both a companion and a romance catalyst
