We even had this flat black Lexus LFA show up once. I’m not certain, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the only one in the state. The look isn’t something I’m a big fan of, but the sound is out of this world…
Shortly after Alfa Romeo debuted the 4C, an exuberant new owner brought his out to display. I really like the proportions of this car. On paper it seems like it shares a lot of DNA with a Lotus Elise/Exige, which is a decent bit more affordable on the used market.
It isn't all about modern exotics though, we typically have a very strong showing of classic air-cooled Porsches. I have a soft spot for the 356…
This pair of bespoke 911’s were crafted by Accumoto Motorsports, a haven for all things air-cooled located just north of nearby Madison. We’ll have more from these lovers of Luftgekühlt for you soon.
We even get a few rare birds to show up, like this authentic and absolutely beautiful 356 Speedster. Much like Shelby Cobras, I (unfortunately) will usually just assume that I’m looking at a kit car whenever I happen to stumble across one. With how common replicas are these days, the experience of coming across the genuine article almost seems muted. Nonetheless, I’m not sure what it is, but these bathtub-lookin’ Beetle-powered 911 predecessors really make me stop and stare.
Even more uncommon and lesser known would be this British racer that was the cutting edge of technology when it was being produced back in 1956. One of only three ever made (and the only one still in original condition), it would feature a 1.5L DOHC engine by Singer (no, not the Porsche people), independent suspension, alloy wheels, and four-wheel disc brakes. All of this represented state of the art technology, and if production had continued it would have been developed to compete at LeMans. I was going to come right out and tell you what it is, but I think I’ll make it a challenge. If you think you can name this collectible then drop your guess in the comments below.
