Stockholm Auto Show All major manufacturers launch their new cars to the press at a select number of motorshows around the world, but it's usually at the smaller local shows that the all important customer gets a first glimpse of the new models and concepts. One of these is the Stockholm Auto Show, which caters for the entire Nordic region. Held earlier this month, the 2003 edition was bigger than ever, with cars lined up in three halls. Not only new cars were on display, but also a large number of old concepts, classics and a number of stunning supercars of the 1990s like a McLaren F1 LM, Mercedes Benz CLK GTR and a Porsche 911 GT1. Our Swedish correspondent visited the event and compiled a report and a 45 shot slide show of this fine event.

Ferrari 250 LM Conceived as a replacement for the epic 250 GTO, the 250 LM is considered by many as Ferrari's first mid-engined car. Although this is not completely correct, it is the first road going Ferrari GT with the engine mounted between the rear axle and the driver's compartment. Even though homologation difficulties kept it from meeting the competetion goals set for it, the 250 LM did manage to take Ferrari's last overall victory at the 24 Hours of LeMans. Both this success and its very pleasing lines, make the 250 LM a favourite among many Ferrari enthusiasts. Today we take a in depth look at the history of the 250 LM, pictured at this month's Tour Auto and last year's LeMans Classic is s/n 6173.

Cars from two motorshows are featured prominently in this week's update; the New York International Auto Show and the largest indoor classic motorshow Techno Classica. At the former two new concepts truely 'stole' the show. The first is a completely new sedan from Chrysler, the 300C, which heralds the return of rear wheel drive for Chrysler's large saloons! The second is a new concept from Lexus, based on the GS 430, the HPX.
From last week's Techno Classica, we have added two of the nicest cars on show. The first is one of the last custom coach built Ferraris, built especially for Belgian's Princesse Lilian de Rethy, the Ferrari 330 GTC Coupe Speciale will be offered for sale for the first time in Juin. One of the most powerful cars on show was BMW's M1 Group 4 Procar racer.

Tour Auto 2003 One of the highlights on the historic racing calender is the Tour Auto. The revival of the Tour de France Automobile, originally held up to 1986. Last week the 11th edition was run in a very sunny France. As always, the cars lined up to compete would take the breath away of any enthusiast. A field of 200 cars were assembled in the heart of Paris for scruteneering. Ferraris and Porsches together were responsible for around half of the field. Early last Tuesday the cars set out for the five day event on France's twistiest of roads. To provide you with an insight into this superb event, we have compiled a full report on the event and entrants and a 50 shot slideshow, with the cars pictured both in Paris and in action.

Another eight cars are added with this week's update and as always there is something for everyone's liking included. Highlights are two cars designed only five years apart for the same racing class, but which are very different in design. First there is the ERA R9B, Britain's most successful single seater of the 1930s. The second, the Alfa Romeo 512, was the first mid-engined Alfa. Unfortunately its development was cut short by the Second World War.
Included as well is a first look at the Nissan 350Z Roadster. From the Geneva show floors comes a futuristic Volvo concept, the VCC.

Ferrari 275 GTB/C To celebrate the adition of the 150th Ferrari we take a close look at four lesser known cars bearing the prancing horse badge. The majority of cars produced in the Maranello factory are featured prominently in many publications, but not the ones we take a look at today.
Highlight is the Ferrari 275 GTB/C, the last Ferrari GT-car to be designed from the ground up as a race-car. It's a racer in the same tradition of the greatest of Ferraris like the 250 GTO. Speaking of the GTO, we have added a little known four litre GT car fitted with a GTO body, the Ferrari 330 GTO. Most successful was the Ferrari 312 T, which brought the driver's world title back to the Scuderia after an 11 year drought. Finally we come to the Ferrari 365 GT4 BB, Ferrari's first mid-engined supercar which paved the way for a whole generation of supercars up to the 1996 F512 M.

North American International Auto Show The doors at Cobo Center in Detroit have closed again to conclude the press days for 2003. The NAIAS showcased one of the longest lists of worldwide and North American debuts of new production vehicles and concept cars ever. The media came in masses to see what would drive the public wild this year. As always, some of the concept car images were leaked days before the show began. There were however a few like the Dodge Tomahawk that made the media go hush, and then roar with excitement in tune with the massive growling V10 engine. The import automakers were also busy dropping jaws with the Ferrari Enzo and Lamborghini Murcielago Barchetta. All of these cars and many, many more are available in our 109 image slideshow. We’ve saved our favorites for last. Thanks goes to Rob Clements, our North American correspondent for his involvement at this years show.
