After a very busy summer, it is now time to gradually take a closer look at the many great cars we captured. Today we have highlighted a pair of Formula 1 racers that starred at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix. The most famous of the two is the Lotus 78. Raced during the 1977 season, it was the car that pioneered ground effect aerodynamics. The featured example was raced in period by Gunnar Nilsson and Hector Rebaque. Today it is owned by a Japanese enthusiast and fielded by Classic Team Lotus. Also on hand in the Principality was this Tyrrell 007, which we had previously had only seen in the familiar Tyrrell blue livery. It was re-painted for the current owner to the Gulf livery, it wore when it was driven by a privateer. In fact, chassis 007/4 remains as the only Grand Prix car ever to race in complete Gulf colours.
Ahead of the official launch at the Paris Motor Show, Peugeot revealed the first details of the all-electric e-Legend Concept. Equipped with a 456bhp drivetrain, the e-Legend features a striking design that has clearly been inspired by the legendary 504 Coupe.
Aston Martin have already teased the mid-engined Valkyrie successor, which has been code-named Project 003. Production is limited to 500 coupes and first deliveries are not expected until 2021.
