1968 Mazda Cosmo Sport Series I

In 1964, Mazda laid the groundwork for its future as a sports car manufacturer with the Cosmo Sport coupe. Its space-age styling and light weight was impressive, but it was what hid beneath the hood that would separate Mazda from its Japanese car competition. Powering the svelte two-seater was Mazda's first Wankel rotary engine and the world's first twin-rotor road car. Making 110 horsepower at a sky-high 7,000 RPM, the engine produced these numbers despite having a tiny displacement — 982 cc — that is still impressive today, let alone 53 years ago. A white exterior with black interior and houndstooth seat inserts finish off the period-correct restoration. With fewer than 400 made, this Cosmo Sport Series I is a rare and important piece of automotive history.

  • 1966 Lola T70 MK2 Spyder

    In 1966, the Canadian-American Challenge Cup launched as one of the premiere racing series in North America. The wide-open FIA Group 7 rules allowed for almost anything, leading to some of the most powerful cars in racing history. This 1966 Lola T70 was purchased by Goodyear to be driven by the legendary A.J. Foyt in the inaugural Can-Am campaign. In 1967, the car was sold to driver Bob Bondurant, who then rented the car out to Universal Studios for use in Winning, starring Paul Newman. Now recently restored back to its original glory, this classic racer is ready to compete, being eligible for a variety of vintage racing events.

  • Original 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

    In 1954, Mercedes introduced a race car for the street — the 300SL "Gullwing". Based on the W194 racer that won Le Mans, the idea was suggested to Mercedes by their New York importer, Max Hoffman. Which is where the story of this all-original, unrestored 300SL starts. Ordered by a publishing executive from Hoffman in 1955, the car was specified with British racing green paint over tan leather, making it a rarity among even among a production of just over 1,400. This Gullwing has remained in the same family since it was delivered, racking up just over 16,000 miles over 62 years, and wears a spectacular patina earned over its lifetime of being driven.
