TheVRL News Brief

F1 reveals vision for future engine era amid 'crude' hybrid ban

Formula 1 chiefs say government plans to ban the sales of new hybrid cars within the next 15 years are "crude" — as they insist the sport can be a catalyst for a revolution in environmentally-friendly engine technology. As part of a push by governments to cut back on carbon emissions, there has been a move by many countries to outlaw the sales of new petrol, diesel and hybrid engines in the next few years — with Britain announcing recently its push for a ban to be in place by 2035. That move has prompted questions on what direction F1 will have go in the future.

The wild journey of Porsche 917-022 from Steve McQueen to Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld and Porsche go together like golf and marine biology. The host of the popular show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” has an incredible collection of Porsches, some with more… interesting histories than others. One such car in his stable is the Porsche 917K that was prominently featured in Steve McQueen’s 1971 racing flick “Le Mans.” On a recent episode of Spike Feresten’s podcast, “Spike’s Car Radio,” Jerry and his car consigliere Sam Cabiglio recounted how the film-famous ride came to reside in Seinfeld’s collection. The story, as it turns out, was a lot more intricate than we expected.

Benz from the 19th century stars in Bonhams Amelia Island auction

Historic Benz motorcars dating back to the 19th century will be presented during Bonhams’ collector car sale on Amelia Island, Florida, on March 5. These are among 20 vintage German vehicles from the estate of California collector Gerhard Schnuerer that will be offered at the auction. The earliest automobile in the sale is a true horseless carriage, an 1897 Benz 10hp Mylord Coupe, of which only two are known to exist. It is one of the world’s oldest motorcars. (Image: Bonhams)

A 1932 Jean Bugatti-designed Type 55 is expected fetch up to $9.5 million at auction

Dean S. Edmonds, Jr., a Boston University professor who passed away at age 93 in 2018, was a man who loved physics, planes and cars. Of the latter, the automobiles collected by Edmonds possess a beauty that, unlike college-level physics, most can relate to. On March 5, a dozen cars from the Edmonds collection will be auctioned by Bonhams at its Amelia Island Auction, but the standout vehicle is a 1932 Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport Roadster. The stunning black-and-red machine had been in the professor’s stable since 1985. While there are a few other notable cars on the block from the collection — including a quartet of mid-century Jaguars, a stunningly rare left-hand-drive 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series 4 GT and a simple dune buggy once driven by Steve McQueen — the Bugatti is something to behold.

Depression-era America looked forward to a better future with cars like the 1935 Studebaker Commander

The Great Depression wasn’t all the harsh cynicism of “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” It was also “Pennies from Heaven,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” and “Let’s Have Another Cup of Coffee.” Those three pieces of popular music acknowledged that yes, times were tough, but they would get better. That type of “we’ll get through this” optimism seemed to be a national mantra in those days and it extended to brightly colored, cheerful products like Fiestaware dishes; extravagant, exuberant films like the musical comedy “Gold Diggers of 1933;” and, of course, automobile designs that were increasingly swoopy and stylish.
