Unless you live in Northamptonshire or fly light aircraft you may not have heard of Sywell Aerodrome but on the weekend of the 28th and 29th of September this small airfield was transformed into a metropolis for Classic Car and Aircraft enthusiasts from all over the country.
A number of iconic and sought after cars descended on Manchester last weekend (September 21st-22nd) as the north west city delivered its inaugural Classic Car Show.
With the Frankfurt Motor Show set to get underway on Thursday (September 12th) motoring fans will be licking their lips at the prospect of two brand new Aston Martin models to feast their eyes upon.
The company are in the midst of a global celebration, marking their 100 years of experience in delivering iconic sports cars to manufacture.
Last weekend a new show was born when Players Classic came to Goodwood. This is not your typical modified car show. There are no car clubs here, no cars with nothing more than after market wheels, no sheds, no endless rows of identical Focus STs or Mitsubishi EVOs.
It’s true that the game of supercars is all about harder, faster, stronger. You’d get laughed out of the supercar boys’ club as a manufacturer if you released something that wasn’t at least 10 per cent more mega than the last car. And happily for us petrolheads, the limit of how much power per litre a petrol-combusting engine can be made to make has not yet been reached. And if it is, the engineers will just jack up the grunt from the electric hybrid system. But, this new V12 Vantage S is all motor, no battery, and makes its substantial 565bhp from a full 6 litres of V12 goodness.
