The Ferrari 275 GTB/C SpecialeIn the beginning, Enzo Ferrari would have to be convinced providing a taste of the track for the street. The same reservation was felt when it came to providing customers competitive cars for the track as well. However, by the 1960s, Ferrari's mood would change and the Maranello outfit would begin turning out some truly outstanding designs. Perhaps none evokes such legendary status as the 250 GTO, but then there was its successor.
The Toyota 2000 GTTo say it's difficult to conceive of a Ferrari-like Toyota is too often stated. It is easy to think of the automobile manufacturer as the maker of fine, but relatively sedate production cars. There have been glimpses of another side of the company, however, but this has always been veiled behind a lack of need to prove one's self. Though never really pushed to prove itself to the world, the 2000 GT would be Toyota's means of dabbling in a world for which it had been unknown and showing the world just what it could do if it wanted to.

The Aston Martin DB4 GTThanks to Mr. Bond, Aston Martin would become an iconic sportscar mark, the DB5 would be considered the ultimate expression. This would be disputed however as, in 1959, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, there would be an Aston Martin powering its way up towards the Dunlop Curve. It would be, perhaps, the greatest expression of the DB series.
The Cadillac AllantéThe history of Cadillac dates back to 1902. In 1992, the company celebrated its 90 anniversary in fitting style with the introduction of its new Northstar V8 engine. Later in the year, the final 4,670 examples of the Pininfarina designed Allante's were produced, each equipped with Cadillac's new flagship engine. They were equipped with the Quiet Coil Direct Ignition System and Fluid Induction System, complimented by a road-sensing suspension, speed sensitive steering, and Bosch traction control which greatly improved the cars handling.
The Intermeccanica ItaliaThe Intermeccanica came into being in 1959 when the Construzione Automobili Intermeccanica was founded by Frank Reisner in Turin, Italy.

The Bentley R-TypeAt the 1953 Geneva Salon Bentley would debut what would become the famous R-Type. However, what would make that first R-Type so appealing would be the handywork of H.J. Mulliner designer J.P. Blatchley. Aerodynamic and light, the car would be the posterchild of the postwar sports saloon.
In total, there would be five series of the R-Type Continental. But among these series perhaps the most notable and iconic would be the streamlined sports saloons penned by Blatchley. The fastback look of the R-Type would be an amalgamation of conscripting aerodynamics into luxury, coachbuilt automobiles.
The Cunningham C3Briggs Cunningham may have been born in Cincinnati, Ohio, right in the heartland of America, but he could have been right at home in Modena, or Maranello, Italy, such was his approach to automobile-making.
Besides being considered the builder of what many consider to be America's first sports car and earning a 4th place at the 1952 24 Hours of Le Mans, Cunningham understood well the axiom of 'win on Sunday, sell cars on Monday'.

The Alfa Romeo Tipo 256In many respects, a true sportscar is something of a wolf in sheep's clothing. From the outside they can appear merely elegant, luxury-based, sophisticated, even a bit docile at times. But, the heart that rests within beats with the passion and drive of a fearsome war horse ready to charge into the fray. This balance certainly reflects the enigma that is the 1939 Alfa Romeo Tipo 256 Cabriolet Sportivo.

The Aston Martin DB3SIn 1959, Aston Martin would finally reach its objective. It had been many years but an Aston Martin had finally triumphed at Le Mans. It had been nearly a decade of effort, of toil and heartache. In 1955, David Brown's effort came close to achieving the zenith. The car that nearly hit the target but that set the foundation for the overall victory a few years later would be the DB3S.
The Ferrari F333 SPFerrari would last win at Le Mans in 1965 with a NART-entered 250LM. In the United States, the Maranello outfit was almost mere legend and not reality. Since the mid-1970s the scuderia would focus almost entirely on its Formula One efforts and would only maintain a presence within the GT ranks of endurance racing. However, in the wandering years of IMSA prototype sportscar racing of the 1990s and early 2000s it would be the legend Ferrari that would help carry the water and keep a finger in the levee until the needed revitalization could happen. Ferrari would do this with the 333 SP.
