By the early 1990s the Rover Group sales were on the up. Their relationship with Honda had produced the success of the Rover 200, the flagship Rover 800 and the company was now in the hands of British Aerospace Unfortunately the world"s economy was not strong, with the world"s markets for both cars and planes, commercial and military, falling. It is in these times that the SK3 project started, stalled and was reborn as the R3 Rover 200. It has been called 'The last all-British, volume car' but that's not true... It is a story worth telling and now has been told by many of tho

Jaguar - The Cars and The People by Peter Lightfoot
A brand new Book listing the history of Jaguars' people that made the car and shaped the future of the motor industry
A unique perspective of the Jaguar car company over the decades and the people that made the company and motoring history.
So many superbly illustrated and technically explicit books have been written about Jaguar cars over the long and successful existence of the marque, but not many have been written about ‘the people’ that created and shaped the future of the Jaguar brand.
This book is dedicated to the bosses and employees that made the Jaguar brand a truly legendary car brand, recognised and respected worldwide, both on the roads and the race tracks.

The 300 SL (W 194) is the first racing car with which Mercedes-Benz renewed its participation in international automobile racing in the postwar period. Top-ranking positions and triumphs, such as at the legendary twenty-four-hour endurance race in Le Mans or the Carrera Panamericana in Mexico, are not a long time in the coming and as early as 1952 secure a place for the Stuttgart-based make in the worldwide motor sports scene.
The racing car achieved particular fame for its unusual gull-winged doors, which turn the production sports car 300 SL, introduced in 1954 and directly derived from the W 194, into one of the lasting icons in automobile history.
The book provides exhaustive and authentic documentation of the technical development of the W 194 based on extensive research in the archives of Mercedes-Benz Classic: all of the races as well as the biography of each individual vehicle are presented with the aid of in part unpublished images and illustrations. Its high-quality design as well as its exquisite features make the book a true collector's item.
Packaged within two outer hard card wallets.

Presenting The Racing Infused Carbon GT Timepiece - Racing At It's Rawest
We have designed something special here for our fellow racing and car enthusiasts. We love releasing new racing inspired watches so for this Carbon GT model we have stepped it up a notch with an all carbon fibre dial and bezel timepiece! Yes you read right it even has a carbon fibre bezel! We used real carbon for the dial and bezel of this black edition which makes it a one of a kind.
The motor running this collection is a highly reliable Seiko VK63 meca-quartz which is an awesome quartz movement that has the great touch of the second hand swooping smoothly like an automatic movement as opposed to ticking second by second like a standard quartz.The Carbon GT has a 43mm all stainless steel case which is black coated and features a dial of 3 sub dials being second, minute and hour ticking sub dials. We decided that orange looks best with the black and carbon so we used an orange second hand and second hands on the sub dials. Protecting the this unique dial is the strongest crystal being sapphire crystal - highly scratch and scrape proof. We added a tachymetre to the outer dial and some semi skeleton minute and hour hands.The caseback features a chequered engraving with the crown as engraved with our M logo and have allowed our backers to take this watch 100 metres under water by making it water resistant of 100m. We really have pulled out all the posts on this new Carbon GT watch, this is the watch you need for your next track visit!
