As technologically and aerodynamically incredible modern F1 cars are, their front-engined forefathers were rudimentary, dangerous, but beautiful to behold. British team Vanwall was one of the most prominent teams in F1 in the ’50s, having beaten the likes of Ferrari and Maserati in the first F1 World Championship constructors’ title. Now, Vanwall has been resurrected in a series of continuation cars built to the original spec. Six of the sleek-bodied single-seat, open-wheel racers mimic Vanwall’s original models to a T (based on original blueprints), and each one carries forth the long-nose design and houses a 2.5-liter, 270-horsepower engine. Five of them will go to private buyers at a cost of $2.14 million apiece, while the sixth one will be retained by Vanwall for its Historic Racing Team stable. This continuation series will potentially be used to study for the development of modern road-going cars.
