And the chameleon-like quality of the 911 has also spread to other models. In short, the 911 simply looks good in everything. Whether pure white, refined black or strident yellow. Cheeky orange or rich green, blazing red …

Cadillac Model 355 By Hyman Classic Cars

Cadillac’s venerable model 355 was heavily reworked for the 1934/35 model year. Starting from the ground up with an all new chassis that featured so-called “Knee Action” independent front suspension, the 355-D received a fresh new look thanks to totally reworked styling.

This move coincided with the launch of the the new V8-engined Esprit road car, which was a much more suitable base than the earlier four-cylinder equipped Esprits used with some success in GT3 and GT2. To develop the new racing car, a separate entity, Lotus GT1 Engineering, …
