Productions :  1985
Engine : 441 kW (600 PS/591 bhp)

The Audi Sport Quattro S1 was introduced at the end of 1984 as an update to the Audi Sport Quattro. The car featured a inline 5-cylinder engine that displaced 2,110 cc (128.8 cu in) and produced an officialy quoted figure of 350 kW (480 PS/470 bhp). However, the turbocharger utilised a recirculating air system, with the aim of keeping the turbo spinning at high speed, and the actual figure was in excess of 500 bhp (373 kW/507 PS) at 8000 rpm. In addition to the improved power output, an aggressive aerodynamic kit was added that featured very distinctive wings and spoilers to the front and rear of the car to increase downforce. The weight was lightened to just 1,090 kg (2,403 lb), and now accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds.

This completely original Elgin Blackhawk exemplifies the styling trend of the time with it’s massive motorcycle size toolbox tank and low slung frame. The Blackhawk was manufactured by Westfield Manufacturing for sale by Sears between 1934 and 1936. The frame design was called the “Twinbar” and preceded the radically styled Twinbar of 1938-40. The bike changed very little between years. This bike features the unique “Elgin” pancake horn with flipper switch mounted to the handlebar. The original red seat is still on it! Notice the bulky steel clad wood rims made by Lobdel, and the original speedometer.

The Lancia Lambda was an innovative automobile produced from 1922 through 1931. It was the first car to feature a load-bearing monocoque-type body, and it also pioneered the use of an independent suspension (the front sliding pillar with coil springs). Lancia even invented a shock absorber for the car. Approximately 11,200 Lambdas were produced.

The narrow-angle aluminum Lancia V4 engine was also notable. All three displacements shared the same long 120 mm stroke, and all were SOHC designs with a single camshaft serving both banks of cylinders.

Renault Floride (1958-1968)

Manufacturer : Renault
Productions : 1958-1968

The Renault Caravelle was a roadster automobile produced by the French manufacturer Renault between 1958 and 1968. Outside of North America for its first four years of production it was known as the Renault Floride.

The Floride was unveiled at the 1958 Paris Motor Show. A small rear-engined convertible designed by Pietro Frua at Carrozzeria Ghia, it used the floorpan and engine of the Renault Dauphine sedan. The now infamously slow Dauphine running gear was something of a burden for the car however and it was dubbed “a sheep in wolf’s clothing” by the media in its early years. A model tuned by Renault performance guru Amedee Gordini was sold, which produced 40 hp as opposed to the standard model’s 35. The Floride was launched in the United States and Canada as the Renault Caravelle a year after its introduction in Europe.

The car’s lack of power was aided somewhat by the replacement in 1962 of its Dauphine-derived running gear with a new 956cc engine from the recently launched Renault 8. The Caravelle name also replaced the Floride name in all markets from 1962 onwards. In 1964 another R8-derived engine of 1108cc was introduced to the Caravelle, producing 55 hp.

Oldsmobile Cutlass (1961)

Manufacturer : Oldsmobile
Productions : 1961
Engine : V8 engine 155 hp (115.6 kW) and 210 lb-ft (284 N-m)

The Oldsmobile Cutlass was an automobile made by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. The Cutlass was introduced in 1961 as a unibody compact car competing with the Dodge Lancer and Mercury Comet.

Over the years, the Cutlass name was used by Oldsmobile as almost a sub-marque, with a number of different vehicles bearing the name simultaneously. This was probably shrewd, because the Cutlass name had great equity and became one of the most popular nameplates in the industry in the 1970s. However, the proliferation of Oldsmobile Cutlass models caused confusion in the market-place in the 1980s, when three different vehicles (the Cutlass Calais, Cutlass Ciera, and Cutlass Supreme) all shared the name.
