Throwback Thursday? Well this post is throwing back all the way to before 1939! First up is a lovely Italian stallion. The Alfa Romeo 8C Monza. Packing 2.6 litres of supercharged, twin cam, straight eight goodness under that long bonnet this vintage racing legend could churn out 215bhp shunting this blue streak from 0-60mph in under 7 seconds and on to a (relatively speaking) whopping top speed of 135mph! On track that ‘charged straight 8 sound biblical. The second shot is of a Talbot Lago T150C battling through the spray. A properly niche French car company this car was built to exploit the new category at LeMans, the 4-litre category. So fitted with a newly enlarged 3994cc straight six (technically a Hemi, but don’t tell Mopar), fed by three Stromberg carbs, this monstrous unit produced a healthy, if optimistic 200bhp. However, the French being, french, went on strike and the ’36 LeMans race was cancelled, so the T150C debuted at the French Grand Prix. Wearing the number 7 and number 9 are a brace of lovely MG Montlherys. Based on the M-Type Midget, this was a race car built to break a record. The record in question was the 24 hours race at Autodrome de Montlhéry in France. This tiny racers are powered by a 750cc supercharged four cylinder, producing 52.4 bhp and breathing out through a gorgeous fishtail exhaust. Another bolt of blue with car 27, this is another MG, the L Manga. Running here with a 1.5 litre supercharged straight 6. A similar model sold last year at Sotheby’s for $82,500. The little red number in the next shot is a H.R.G. 1 1/2 litre. Described in a review at the time as being a genuine 80mph sports two seater. Excellent performance and vivacity combined. Tucked in behind the little H.R.G. is a Morgan Aero Supersports, a funky V-Twin powered three wheeler. In 1930, WW1 Ambulance Driver, Gwenda Stewart set a speed record of 113mph in a race tuned Morgan. And last but by no means least, a Riley Sprite Special running the 12/4 1.5 litre four cylinder. Some very old race car goodness, battling it out on a soaking track.
