After a prolonged two-year absence, one of the most loved events in Beaulieu is back! The Spring Autojumble will return on May 14 and 15 to the delight of automotive enthusiasts.

After International Autojumble was able to successfully make a comeback in Beaulieu in 2021, the Spring Autojumble is back for a wonderful motoring-themed weekend. Everyone will be able to enjoy colorful car displays as well as hundreds of different bargain-filled stands.

To celebrate the return of Spring Autojumble there will be impressive car club displays during the event. Moggyfest will be showcasing lilac-painted Morris Minor Million. The Dorset branch of the Morris Minor Owner’s Club will be displaying Morris Minors and other contemporary classics. Last year, the limited edition Million celebrated its 60th anniversary and the display is a way to celebrate that milestone.

The Saab Enthusiasts Club is another display to note. They will be featuring a line-up of 60 Saabs from all decades to pay tribute to all the Saabs that were imported into he UK since 1960 until 2012. Saab is known for creating innovating and class-leading cars, so keep an eye out for notable classics in the line-up.

Austin A30 & A35 Owner’s Club will be showcasing a collection of Austin A30s and A35s. They will also be showcasing ‘baby Austins’ that is a reminder of a bygone era, when Britain’s automotive world was newer, slower, and much gentler time.

For those who are interested in getting their own classic car or looking for a project they can work on, a variety of classic cars will be on offer by Automart and Dealermart.

Fans of 4×4 vehicles will be in for a treat as Land Rover Rummage will also have their own display. Their booth will be set up on Sunday, May 15. The trading corner will have Land Rover spare parts like mechanical spares, body panels, service items, wheels, and accessories. They might even showcase complete project vehicles.

Event tickets will give ticket holders access to all the Beaulieu attraction for the weekend, so to get your Land Rover fix, head insure the National Motor Museum. There will be a new exhibition Bond in Motion – No Time To Die wherein they will showcase a lot of the original vehicles, costumes, and gadgets from the latest Bond film. This includes the Land Rover Defender 110 and Bond’s Land Rover Series III.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
