Why Walk When a Delahaye is Available?

Ordinarily I wouldn’t subject you to an 11 minute Johnny Walker ad, but maybe if advertising as short film as love letter to vintage racing is a success we’ll see more of these and fewer terrible ads. Will it join the Ferrari Shell spot and Castello Cavalcante in the pantheon of great classic racing ads? Only time will tell. But I’m sure I’ll want another look at that French Racing Blue beauty.

Cameos from Jenson Button and Mika Häkkinen are a fun bonus as well. But of course that gorgeous Delahaye 135 somehow manages to steal the spotlight from even Jude Law. Enjoy.

Topps World on Wheels: Connaught

Connaught trading card

More from the Topps World on Wheels bubblegum card collection. This time, Connaught.

From the card’s reverse: Horsepower: 107

A tiny factory in England, producing only about two cars per week, makes the Connaught. The body is very light and is built for speed. It has cycle fenders, outside exhaust pipes, bucket seats and a good finish. The price of the Connaught is $5,500! the basis for this car is a Lea-Francis engine. Under the cowl is a two and one half gallon gas tank.

Anyone have $5,500 I can borrow?
