1954 Maserati A6GCS : Classic Cars
1954 Maserati A6GCS : Classic Cars

Styled by Pininfarina, the A6GCS Berlinetta was one of the prettiest Maseratis and its racing pedigree was only trumped by its flowing lines and taught proportions. Underneath the skin of this car is a race-bred chassis built by Gilco that was intended for events such as the prestigious Mille Miglia.

The A6GCS chassis was a derivative of the A6 Sportscar that was powered by a short-stroke, double ignition, inline-6 that was one of the last units designed by the Maserati brothers before their departure. Developed initially for Forumla 2, the A6 could rev freely up to 7300 rpm and produce 170 bhp.

Stuck in a restricting contract with Ferrari, the Pinin Farina Berlinetta couldn't be sold directly by Maserati. So Rome dealer Giuglielmo Dei acquired six bare chassis and commissioned Pininfarina to complete four cars - no doubt protested by Enzo Ferrari.

One car appeared on the Pinin Farina stand at the 1952 Turin Motor Show and another sister car at the Paris Motor Show. At Rome's 'Concorso Internazionale d'Eleganza,' #2057, a stunning two-tone coupe with an extra low roof line, took the top prize.

While the achievements of the A6GCS Coupe in motor sports were minimal, their beautiful styling was exciting enough. In 1996, one of the cars, chassis 2059, sold for $3.7 million USD.

Of the four chassis, 2056 & 2059 remain largely original while 2057 & 2060 were rebodied as spyders. The spare bodies were placed on two more cars, so six original Pinin Farina Coupes existed although never at the same time.

2014 Rolls-Royce Pinnacle Travel Phantom...
2014 Rolls-Royce Pinnacle Travel Phantom : Current Models

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Pinnacle Travel Collection debuts in Beijing, two days before the start of the Beijing Auto Show. The Pinnacle Travel Collection is a China-only special edition celebrating “the Chinese love of travel and the success of the Bespoke programme in China”. It has a chessboard in the back. Interestingly, it is a western board, where Rolls-Royce could have gone for Chinese Chess or Go.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Pinnacle Travel Collection comes in two-tone colour scheme. Buyers can choose between Madeira Red – Silver Sand, Infinity Black – Silver Haze, or Melanite – Palladium. The car on the photos is a Rolls-Royce Phantom Pinnacle Travel Collection Madeira Red – Silver Sand.

The interior is dressed up with thick red leather, loads of walnut wood, “Morello Red lambs wool floor mats”, and kinda wiffy white pillows. Rolls-Royce says the interior is made to look like a “streamlined train travelling at speed”.

There is another well-written line in the press release. Let me quote: “The pièce de la resistance, however, is the most complex and intricate marquetry ever seen inside a Rolls-Royce.” They are talking about the woodwork in the doors and on the glove box, showing a train.

No matter the wording, the interior is indeed a work of art and sublime craftsmanship. The Rolls-Royce Phantom Pinnacle Travel Collection can be ordered from today. As far as we can figure out the Pinnacle Travel Collection is an unlimited special edition, so if you bring the cash they will make it. No word on price but the base car goes for 6.88 million yuan or 1.1 million USD, so the Pinnacle will likely get close to 10 million.

Mazda Recalls 109k SUVs For Rust Problem : News
Mazda Recalls 109k SUVs For Rust Problem : News

Mazda is recalling 109,000 Tribute SUVs in cold-weather states to fix rusting frame parts.

The recall covers SUVs from the 2001 through 2004 model years. Mazda says in documents filed with U.S. safety regulators that the frame can rust and a wheel control arm can separate from it. That could result in a loss of steering control.

The SUVs were originally sold or registered in 20 states and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to clear snow and ice from roads.

Dealers will install a reinforcement brace to fix the problem. Mazda says it will notify owners by letter when parts are available.

The same problem caused a recall of nearly 386,000 older Ford Escapes earlier this month. The Escape and Tribute are nearly identical vehicles.

Volkswagen Golf R Evo : Concept Cars
Volkswagen Golf R Evo : Concept Cars

Volkswagen is planning to debut the 370 hp Golf R Evo Concept at the upcoming Beijing Motor Show sources have confirmed.

First reported by AutoCar, the Golf R Evo Concept will be one of the most powerful Golfs ever produced (the Golf Design Vision GTI concept is the most powerful with 500 hp). In order to achieve such a boost in horsepower, the EA888 engine used by the standard Golf R has been tuned with a brand new cylinder head and induction system.

Total output is now reported as being 370 hp and 322 lb ft of torque.

All this power will be transferred through a six-speed dual clutch transmission and Halex multi-plate clutch four wheel drive system. The concept is also said to extensively utilize carbon fiber and other weight saving materials in its body panels in order to bring the total curb weight to just a hair over 3,000 lbs.

Also interesting to note is that the man behind Mercedes’ recently released 355 hp 2.0-liter four cylinder engine — Fritz Eichler — is also the man behind the new Golf R Evo Concept.

Speaking to AutoCar, Eichler said he had no doubts that 400 hp could be coaxed out of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the next few years. That is news that bodes well for Golf fans.
