Fiat s76 Beast of Turin by car photographer Paul Ward The Fiat S76, known as The Beast of Turin is the one surviving example of a pair of land speed record contenders the Italian automaker built before WWI. ‘The Beast of Turin’ was built in 1910 to beat the land speed record, held at the time by Blitzen-Benz. Its 28.5-litre Fiat S76 engine is capable of an impressive 300bhp – enough to propel the car to 116 mph, and a one-mile land speed record, in 1911. After WWI Fiat dismantled one of the two impressive machines to prevent rival manufacturers obtaining its technical secrets, while the other one was purchased by Russian aristocrat Boris Soukhanov. It eventually made its way to Australia, where it was modernised and displayed as a ‘Fiat Racing Special’. In 2003, engineer enthusiast and current owner Duncan Pittaway brought the dismantled chassis back to the UK, and reunited it with the original 28.5 litre four-cylinder engine, which is capable of providing an impressive 300bhp – enough to propel the car to 116 mph, and a one-mile land speed record, in 1911.

The Ferrari 125 S front end by car photographer Paul Ward (commonly 125 or 125 Sport) was a 1.5 litre race car built in 1947 by automaker Ferrari of Modena, Italy, its first vehicle. Only two were made. Although preceded by Enzo Ferrari’s Auto Avio Costruzioni 815 of 1940, the 125 S was the first vehicle to bear the Ferrari name when it debuted on May 11, 1947 at the Piacenza racing circuit. Like the 815, but unlike its inline-8 predecessor, partly developed from Fiat engine components, the 125 S featured the Ferrari designed and built Colombo V12 (the “125”), a trait it shared with most Ferrari cars of the following decades. The 125 S was replaced by the 159 S later in 1947. This image is available as 1 of 100 limited edition prints from Limited100 Read more!

BMW 503 by car photographer Paul Ward. Photographed on location using a studio type setup History The BMW 503 is a two-door 2+2 grand touring automobile from the 1950s. BMW developed the 503 alongside their 507 roadster in an attempt to sell a significant number of luxury cars in the United States. The 503 and 507 cost about twice their projected price and did not recover their costs. During production from May 1956 to March 1959, 413 units of the 503 were built. Even though it was a prestige model it resulted in heavy losses for BMW. The Bertone-bodied Cabriolet’s official production began in the summer of 1956. The BMW 503 Cabriolet is notable as the first German automobile to have an electrically-operated power top. The 503 also touts welded tubular frame construction, aluminium panels, an alloy V-8 engine, and very high-quality appointments; all of this made the car very expensive to build, and production of the Cabriolet was thus limited to a mere 139 units.

Alfa Romeo 8C  photographed by Paul Ward Alfa Romeo 8C 1932 Photographed at Silverstone classic in the paddocks then extensively retouched to look like a studio style image. History The Alfa Romeo 8C was originally a range of road, race and sports cars of the 1930s. In 2004 They revived the 8C name for a V8-engined concept car which made it into production for 2007, the 8C Competizione. The 8C designates 8 cylinders, and originally a straight 8-cylinder engine. The Vittorio Jano designed 8C was Alfa Romeo’s primary racing engine from its introduction in 1931 to its retirement in 1939. In addition to the two-seater sports cars it was used in the world’s first genuine single-seat Grand Prix racing car, the Monoposto ‘Tipo B’ – P3 from 1932 onwards. In its later development it powered such vehicles as the twin-engined 1935 6.3-litre Bimotore, the 1935 3.8-litre Monoposto 8C 35 Type C, and the 8C 2900B Mille Miglia Roadster. It also powered top-of-the-range coach-built production models, including a Touring Spider and Touring Berlinetta. info courtesy of  wikipedia Read more!

Fiorano T48 Spyder by automotive photographer Paul Ward The T48 Corsa Spyder is a re-bodied ‘special’ based on a Triumph chassis and engine and was originally designed by Alan Hooper who drew his inspiration from race cars of the ’30s and ’40s like the Ferrari 166, Alfa Romeo 158 and the Giannini 750 sport. The company was taken over and rebranded as Fiorano a few years back and still continues to this day although probably less than 50 have ever been produced. Paul rebuilt the car a couple of years ago and while doing so, designed a slightly different front end compared to most other T48 Spyders, making this a very unique car indeed.
