The automotive world has a long history of trans-Atlantic partnerships. Some of my favorite sports cars and grand tourers are the result of British, French, or Italian bodies wrapped over snarling American V-8s. There’s the Shelby Cobra, Jensen Interceptor, Facel Vega, Bizzarrini Strada, and Iso Grifo just to name a few. I love the siren song of a V-12 as much as anyone, but it’s hard to argue with 400+ cubic inches of Detroit pushrod V-8 that can be rebuilt in a Pep Boys parking lot or tuned up with a matchbook and a screwdriver.
