Default Eastern Creek 2010 - Sports Cars

Again, some very wonderfu looking, and desirable Sports Cars - other than his looks, I wish I was Jay Leno - well, you know......anyway, it's cars and without further ado.....

It said GT40 onthe graphics - genuine or repro ?





Well. it's a Ferrari, isn't it - what more can you say...



Aston Martin - more than likely a DB3S with its triple Webers - and just look at W.O.'s (Bentley to the uninitiated) twin cam masterpiece. I think it's the 3 liter version, not the 2.6.





I made a mental note of the brand of tyre, but of course the name has now disappeared from the 'between the ears PC' - anyway, they are 16"ers and I wopuld have loved to find out the source of purchase.





A different kind of Aston (DB4) - not quite to my taste....



This was a smashingly good looking car - forgotten its make. Chevy, Mustang ?



....and I don't think the Falcon GT looked out of place - very effective looking.



More to come - Styria

As I said, more to come - there were just so many cars to marvel at.....

That orange colour - absolutely stunning in its richness and quality of execution..









Absolutely stunning Mustang.....



Strictly speaking not a Sports Car, but how delectable is this Bertone bodied 1300cc Alfa - and how would one calculate its value ?



Thanks for looking - Styria

Wonderful photos Styria. A question of I may; why would you say the Alfa is not a sports car? Just curious.

This is a C6 Chevrolet Corvette (from 2005 to present).
The sixth generation of the fabled marque.

A true supercar beater that can hold its own on the track and the autobahn with the likes of Porsche and Ferrari

Thanks for that, Michel. I just think that the car was fabulous. Parks has a client that called in on us some two to three weeks ago with a brand new one that he had just brought in from the States. What a superb car - and talking about holding its own against the Germans and Italians - just look what Chevys or Caddies are doing in the European Touring Car Championships. They're the leaders. So the General is doing something right. Regards Styria

Thanks BenzBoy. I love putting these pics on Topklasse. I realize strictly not 116 or 107s, but a lot of cars are Classics, owned by total enthusiasts and as I have said, if I was Jay Leno, I could easily want to own any of the cars that I have photographed and uploaded to the site.

Maybe I need to qualify my assessment of the little Bertone Alfa - isn't it just too pretty to be looked at as a Sports Car ? I know Alfas have a proud racing tradition, and this one seems to be just....what, pretty ? It was an absolute darling of a car. Regards Styria
