    The stars from the Techno Classica and the most SUV yet ...

    At last week's Techno Classica there were literally thousands of cars on display but today we take a detailed look at the two of the most interesting.
    Taking centre stage on organiser SIHA's stand was the very Maserati 250F Lightweight that Juan Manuel Fangio drove to victory in the 1957 Monaco Grand Prix. One of just three 250Fs built to Lightweight specification, this car has survived in remarkable original condition. Owned by the same collector for over 40 years, it has not been seen in public for around two decades.
    Equally rare was this Kremer K8 Porsche, which represents the ultimate development of the Porsche 956/962 design. It was brought into the LMP1 era from Group C by adding a flat floor and removing the roof. The featured example was the second of three all-new cars built by Kremer and features a carbon-fibre composite monocoque. It was raced at Le Mans four times and its second in class in 1998 ranks as the final result of note for the venerably Porsche design, sixteen years after its debut. Boasting Repsol colours most of its life, chassis WSC02 has more recently been returned to the Motul colours of its 1995 Le Mans debut.
    Jeep launched the perfect companion to the Challenger Demon we featured earlier this week in the form of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. It combines the familiar Grand Cherokee shape and all-wheel drive underpinnings with the 707 horsepower engine from the Hellcat models. As such, it is the most powerful regular production SUV in the world.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    They should've named the Jeep, Hellhawk. Has a better ring to it and keeps continuity with their other mad creations
