Description

Best of British TVR: With entries in the Le Mans 24-hour race and success in the American Le Mans Series, TVR has moved from being a marque for enthusiasts to a true world-class player. We look at the history of the company - from Trevor Wilkinson s earliest specials built in Blackpool in the 1950s (using springs from a fairground dodgem!) to the modern supercars, hand-crafted and personalised for even the most discerning individual. Under the ownership of Peter Wheeler, businessman, enthusiast and TVR driver himself, the company has gone from strength to strength. It now offers some of the most innovative sports cars in the world - yet all are built to Wheeler s personal idea of how a proper sports car should be - engine (now made by TVR) in the front, driven by wheels at the back! We take the TVR story into the 21st century with the latest action footage and detail shots, including the brand-new T350 and T440. Everyone notices when a TVR goes by! It is, in every respect, the Best of British . Best of British Cars MG: This is the right up-to-date DVD release of our much-praised video story of one of the best loved brands in British automotive history - as seen on Discovery Channel and acclaimed by critics as the most informative film yet made on this famous marque . It tells the whole MG story, from a closeup look at old Number One - the first sports car to roll out of Morris Garages in Oxford - to the 2009 version of the TF, now being built at the Longbridge plant. All significant models in the more than 85 years of MG production are featured, and there s a special segment celebrating the 75th anniversary in 2008 of the famous supercharged K-series racers and recordbreakers. If you love MG - and who doesn t - then you ll love this. Classic British Cars Lotus: Thanks largely to its founder Colin Chapman, the name Lotus is synonymous with innovation. From humble beginnings in North London, Chapman and his cars went on to international acclaim via a succession of stunning road going vehicles and genius on the racing circuits of the world. In this superb programme wonderful footage of the Seven, the Elite and the Elan; the Europa, Eclat and Exige deliver a heady mix of style and performance whilst the saloon specials - Cortina, Sunbeam and Carlton evoke memories of motoring thrills both on and off the track. Thanks to unprecedented access to the Lotus factory and its test track, you can also enjoy an exclusive look at the building of the new Lotus Elise II and testing with the awesome Esprit V8 and the new Elise 111S. On-board and track cams record the action. This is the story behind the famous green and yellow ACBC badge. High quality archive and modern footage, spanning 1952 to the present day. DVD extras include interviews with Steve Swift and Ansar Ali who shed further light on the tale of this fascinating marque. Great British Cars: Glorious footage shows a cavalcade of the best of British, from the prestige of Rolls Royce to the practicality of Dagenham s Fords. We are treated to wonderful close-ups of perfectly maintained and lovingly restored classics still running today, as well as archive footage of iconic machines in action on road and track in their heyday. From design workshops and factory floors to race circuit and modern day parades, this is an essential guide to the most important vehicles in British automotive history. Great British Cars opens with a look at the luxury liners, including the Rolls Royce Corniche, Bentley Continental R Fastback and the space, grace and pace offered by Jaguar with its groundbreaking Mark VII and S-Type. We then move on to the sports car classics, including Jaguar s record-breaking XK120 and legendary E-Type, Aston Martin s sought-after Zagato and iconic DB5, and Colin Chapman s ingenious Lotus designs.
