The Lamborghini P140 PrototypeAs the 1980s concluded Lamborghini took a stab - and it wasn't its first - at a less expensive model. Designed by Marcello Gandini, the P140 featured a new chassis and a 325 hp mechanical-injection V10 in unit with 5-speed transmission and differential. Overheating and other shortcomings forced the company to cancel the project, as did the development and launch of the Countach's successor, the 202-mph Diablo.
Farman A6B Super SportThis one-off, custom bodied Farman Super Sport is one of approximately four surviving Farman automobiles out of 120 produced. This unusual Super Sport Torpedo has a history of prestigious ownership. Once owned by the Maharajah of Idar, the Maharajah of Karauli and the Maharajah of Bharatpur, the car spent many years in the possession of India's royal class. With its open styling and superior mechanics, this Farman was a favorite for hunting expeditions, including the tiger hunts.
WSM Sprite GTIn 1961, Douglas Wilson-Spratt designed the first WSM Sprite at his Delta Garage in Bedfordshire, England. His Delta Garage partner was Jim McManus, thus the 'WSM' name. The design was based on the engine and chassis of Douglas' Frogeye Sprite with a streamlined body of Douglas' own design. Subsequent interest by the racing public prompted the manufacture of another 10 cars, most of which still survive around the world. Early in 2000, Tony Wilson-Spratt, with his father, decided to build a second-generation of WSM Sprites. Douglas Wilson-Spratt agreed only if they were built as originals - the owner providing the chassis and running gear. The body installation and road worthiness was provided by WSM cars.
Gerin AerodyneDesigned by the young Jacques Gerin, the Aerodyne is a prototype mid-engine saloon car which marked a significant departure from other vehicles of its day.

Jeffries Mantaray CustomDean Jeffries built his Mantaray to compete for the Tournament of Fame grand prize to be awarded at the Oakland Roaster Show in 1964. After working on the first Cobra for Carroll Shelby in 1962, Jeffries started work on his Mantaray project. Using parts of the chassis from a prewar Maserati Grand Prix car that he had acquired from his father-in-law, Jeffries used 86 individual pieces of sheet aluminum to form the Mantaray's body, carefully welding the panels over a complicated arrangement of steel tubes.
