Live the Super '70s In A Ferrari 208 GT4
UP NEXT
Play
The Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 is a unique car. Overshadowed by its bigger brother, the 308 GT4, the 208 was originally created to skirt under the Italian tax levied on engines above two liters. What the 208 GT4 lacks in displacement it makes up for in sound and style. For Bradley Price, designer and owner of Autodromo, the opportunity to acquire a practical "super car" of the '70s with its famous wedge styling was too hard to ignore. After a year of ownership, Bradley can consistently be found escaping the city and revving the sweet-sounding V8 along the roads and hills of New York.
The 911's Allure Is A German Thing
Play
Everybody has their “thing.” For John Willhoit, it’s certainly a German thing. For the past 37 years, he and his custom 1971 Porsche 911T have been Stuttgart’s outpost in Los Angeles County. Whether in his shop restoring classic 356s and 911s or on the road thrashing his own rear-engined machine, Willhoit’s German thing is a good thing indeed.

I love this video! The subject is great, the photography is super, love listening to the melodic italian naration and I absolutely LOVE the soundtrack. One suggestion: please….let me say that again, please start listing the accompany music. Sometimes I wonder if I like the subject of your videos or the music better. Keep’em coming!!

in my opinion, a roof line adds so much visual appeal to a sports car. i know they say when the top goes down, the price goes up, but i so feel that losing a roof takes so much away from a car. this thing is insanely beautiful.

I am loving the coverage Zagato has been getting the past few days. Not all of their designs are home runs (Lancia Flavia Sport, I am looking at you!), but in general it is easy to see why Zagato bodies tend to bring more money than a comparable Bertone or Pininfarina. Many of the shapes they pin are pretty extreme, yet somehow also understated and classy. And though you can always tell a Zagato body, the design language never seems to age or go stale.

Perhaps one day, I can own a Zagato of my own. Perhaps a Fulvia? That would kill to lusts with one stone!

Very nice.
I have played this several times just so my children can hear him waxing in Italian with such sincerity.

Thanks for sharing.

SImply perfect. I wonder where in Maryland this car is!? He could be my neighbor as there are some amazing classics floating around out here.

Great video as usual. I had never realised before this that all Zagato cars were coupes!

Thanks Matt! Actually they did also make roadsters. Some of the pre-war Alfa 8C Zagatos, for example, were roadsters. Andrea does say “only 2 doors” in the video, but not necessarily just coupes.

Fantastic video. Thanks so much for producing these week after week.

Any chance you could provide notes on the music used throughout? It’s all terrific!

Has this site stopped working correctly for any other Firefox users? I have to use Chrome to read it. The red line cuts off the articles and videos.

Hey Steve,
We fixed this issue a while back. You might simply need to reset the cache on Firefox. Let me know if that resolves it.
Thanks.
