It is confusing I know, but this is a Milano GT2. Even with it's Holden red motor it is the 9th fastest 0-100kmh car ever built it did it in 2.9 seconds. Then of course it only weighed 510 kg. This was in 1972!!!!!!

Sorry boys. Didn't think it was my go on account of I didn't really guess the last one.

 

Not as pretty as my last one (nothing much is). And a slight change to the delivery.

 

You all know you're cars way better than I. Let's see how well you know them. Not the full car to begin with....

If it gets really cold do you call that snowboarding?

:) It's actually raining. So I guess that makes it waterboarding and against the Geneva Convention.

Correckamundo Kenny

 

Gordon-Keeble was a British car marque, made first in Slough, then Eastleigh, and finally in Southampton (all in England), between 1963 and 1967. The marque's badge was unusual in featuring a tortoise — a pet tortoise walked into the frame of an inaugural photo-shoot, taken in the grounds of the makers. Because of the irony (the slowness of tortoises) the animal was chosen as the emblem.

 

The Gordon-Keeble came about when John Gordon, formerly of the struggling Peerless company, and Jim Keeble got together in 1959 to make the Gordon GT car by fitting a Buick 215 c.i. (3.5 litre) V8 engine (the engine which would later be developed and used by Rover), into a chassis by Peerless. The car, still at the development stage, was then tried with a 4.6 litre Chevrolet (283 c.i.) V8 fitted into a square-tube steel spaceframe chassis, with independent front suspension and all-round disc brakes. The complete chassis was then taken to Turin, Italy, where a body made of aluminium panels designed by Giugiaro was built by Bertone. The car's four five-inch headlights were in the rare, slightly angled "Chinese eye" arrangement also used by a few other European marques, generally for high-speed cars such as Lagonda Rapide, Lancia Flaminia and Triumphs, as well as Rolls-Royce.

 

The car appeared on the Bertone stand in March 1960, branded simply as a Gordon, at the Geneva Motor Show. At that time problems with component deliveries had delayed construction of the prototype, which had accordingly been built at breakneck speed by Bertone in precisely 27 days[2]. After extensive road testing the car was shipped to Detroit and shown to Chevrolet management, who agreed to supply Corvette engines and gearboxes for a production run of the car.

 

The car was readied for production with some alterations, the main ones being a larger 5.4 litre (327 c.i.) engine and a change from aluminium body to glass fibre. Problems with suppliers occurred and before many cars were made the money ran out and the company went into liquidation. About 90 cars had been sold at what turned out to be an unrealistic price of £2798.

 

In 1965 the company was bought by Harold Smith and Geoffrey West and was re-registered as Keeble Cars Ltd. Production resumed, but only for a short time, the last car of the main manufacturing run being made in 1966. A final example was actually produced in 1967 from spares, bringing the total made to exactly 100. The Gordon-Keeble Owners' Club claim that over 90 still exist.

 

An attempt was made to restart production in 1968 when the rights to the car were bought by an American, John de Bruyne, but this came to nothing, although two cars badged as De Bruynes were shown at that year's New York Motor Show along with a new mid-engined coupé

Haven't seen one in years.

 

How about this then. Maybe not what it might be.

This will either be very quick or very slow. I'm staying up for no more than three hours so dig deep.

A 1964 Morgan Plus 4 hardtop especially for you. As Jason might have said.

 

Your turn.

The Plus4 Plus was an abject failure for MMC and I think there were only 36 released. She's a funny looking critter, but worth a few bucks I suppose. An attempt to modernize the Morgan image. Failed because one thing that Morgan owners don't like is a modern image.

 

Suppose lessons were learned with the +4+ which were put to use when the Aero8 was released. They kept that old world feel but made a modern looking car out of it.

 

 

 

Change of pace from the Mog and my usual posts.

Again, I'm sure it won't take you boys very long.
