Martin Brundle’s Eagle E-Type

by James McBride

For those of you who watch Formula 1, Martin Brundle needs no introduction. The former Formula 1 driver is now the lead commentator on Sky Sports, remarkably his commentating career began 17 years ago beside the legendary Murray Walker on ITV Sport in 1997.

Skip forward to 2014 and Brundle is now the only commentator any serious Formula 1 fan wants to listen to, an untold number of people outside of Britain (and the reach of Sky Sports) clamour to find any online stream they can of his coverage – only resorting to using their local commentators when absolutely necessary.

What many of Brundle’s current fans don’t know is that he entered Formula 1 as a driver in 1984 – the same year as Ayrton Senna. The two men had battled it out in Formula 3 during the 1983 season with Ayrton only winning the championship on the last few laps of the last race – Ayrton had great respect for Brundle, which itself is possibly the greatest nod of approval any racing driver from the era could possibly receive. Brundle would go on to win the 1988 World Sportscar Championship with a record points score before taking a swing at endurance racing and winning the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans race for Jaguar.

When it comes to his own personal cars, Martin has owned a slew of classics that many would kill for, including 2 of my personal favourites – the Ferrari F355 and the E-Type Jaguar. In fact he’s owned 2 E-Types, a Series III V12 Roadster and a Series I Coupe. He impulse bought the Series III on sight, something that many of us would have done years ago if we had the money and the opportunity. Years later he decided that the convertible was a little too exposed – probably because he has one of the most famous faces in Britain, and so he approached the team at Eagle to build him a Series I Coupe.

As with all Eagle E-Types Brundle’s coupe would be a tweaked, improved car that would be more than capable of rubbing shoulders with modern sports couples – a feat many classic cars genuinely struggle with. The straight-6 was reworked to produce a little over 300hp at the rear wheels, it was fitted with a 5-speed transmission, modified suspension geometry, an entirely new interior and a modern air-conditioning system.

Impressively, Brundle uses either his E-Type, his BMW K1600GT or his helicopter to travel to the Formula 1 races in Europe – in fact, he’s now attended almost half the Grand Prix races that have ever taken place worldwide.

1968 Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada Alloy

by James McBride

The story of the Bizzarrini 5300 GT reads like a political thriller set in ancient Rome – there was intrigue, deception, political posturing and even a death before a small number of the cars were produced. Shortly after the last car rolled out of the workshop the Bizzarrini went bust and was relegated to working as a consultant – as he had done for both Ferrari and Lamborghini in the years before the 5300 GT came to be.

The Bizzarrini 5300 GT essentially a started life as an Iso Grifo – a car that had been designed by Giotto Bizzarrini and Giorgietto Giugiaro for Renzo Rivolta in 1963. Bizzarrini was famous for his obsession with weight distribution and as a result of this obsession he liked to position the engine as far back in the chassis as possible. In the Iso Grifo AC3/C this meant that the engine was so far back you had to access the distributor through a door on the dashboard and the pedals were positioned about halfway down the engine block – leading to the car being compared unfavourably with an oven.

Bizzarrini Car 740x493 1968 Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada Alloy

There was much discord between Rivolta and Bizzarrini, the former wanted to focus on building road cars and the latter only wanted to go racing. By the time Renzo Rivolta died in 1965 Bizzarrini’s relationship with the executives at Iso was so strained that he decided to leave and pursue his dream of having his own name on an automobile.

Production of the Bizzarrini 5300 GT began in 1966 and continued till 1968, due to the somewhat Italian bookkeeping it’s not known how many cars were built but most automotive historians estimate the number between 100 and 149. Of these, it’s thought that approximately 70 were build with the full aluminium alloy body – these cars are the most highly valued by collectors and their prices at auction have been seeing a significant bump in recent years.

The Bizzarrini 5300 GT you see here recently underwent a full concours restoration which included to installation of a discreet air-conditioning system – an essential addition for a grand tourer. In 2011 it sold for €400,000 but it’s estimated that it’ll fetch roughly 20% more than that when it rolls across the auction block with RM Auctions on the 10th of May 2014.

EDC Kit 2 by Kaufmann Mercantile

by James McBride

The everyday carry kit (or EDC Kit for short) is a collection of pocket-sized tools that are so frequently used that they become an essential addition to your phone, keys and wallet as items you carry with you on a daily basis.

Kaufmann Mercantile is a world leader in EDC Kit creation, their first EDC Kit was featured twice here on Silodrome where it garnered a huge amount of attention and led to many of you emailing in to say that you’d bought one. So as you can probably imagine we were very interested to learn that Kaufmann Mercantile was releasing a new and updated version called EDC Kit 2 – this is designed to be a pocket-sized kit that’s contains all the little items you’d need to cover scenarios from a backyard BBQ to the end of the civilized world as we know it.

I’ve included a full breakdown of the new EDC Kit 2 below, the team at KM suggested we give one of the new kits away to a Silodrome reader so I’ve included a link below, all you need to do is enter your email and then click the red button.

You can CLICK HERE to win your own EDC Kit, anyone can enter from anywhere in the world and if you don’t win the EDC Kit 2 we’ve put aside a handmade pewter hip flask as the runner up prize – so you can drown your sorrows in style.

 EDC Kit 2 by Kaufmann Mercantile

 

Kaufmann Mercantile was founded by Sebastian Kaufmann in 2009 as a one-stop-shop for a huge variety of “Buy It For Life” products, the online store has quickly grown into one of the most popular digital shopfronts for people who avoid mass-produced Wallmart-fodder products

Official EDC Kit 2 Description:

Whether you need to light a fire in the woods or just open a letter at the office, our EDC Kit 2 has you armed for any occasion. Every day carry (or EDC) refers to a small collection of pocket-friendly tools that you carry with you on a daily basis for tackling situations both mundane and – when required – disastrous. The idea behind EDC is to keep the kit streamlined with an eye towards self-reliance — you want items that do the most, while taking up as little pocket space as possible.

Each EDC Kit 2 Contains:

  – The quick release brass key ring allows you to easily give your car key to the valet or hand off your house key to the housesitter. Corrosion resistant and rustproof.
  – The stainless steel perforated folding knife is mirror polished with a clip-point blade. Made in Italy with cutlery-grade 420 steel, which resists mild acids.
  – The brass compass has a Lexan lens and is water- and shock-resistant. Glow-in-the-dark background for nighttime navigation.
  – The stainless steel key chain pen has a pressurized ink cartridge so you can write at pretty much any angle and at high altitudes. – It’s only activated with pressure, preventing the ink from leaking.
  – The brass key chain flashlight with glass lens delivers a high light output of up to 235 lumens (that’s almost three times more than a camping head lamp).
  – The magnesium fire starter features a high-carbon steel blade. Magnesium shavings ignite even damp tinder and kindling easily but are fireproof in solid form.
  – The stainless steel key chain carabiner opens and closes with a brass screw clasp. Accommodates over 10 keys or EDC tools.

"A Grande Beleza"

by O Homem Que Sabia Demasiado

"A Grande Beleza", filme que estreia hoje em Portugal, é um verdadeiro prodígio cinematográfico. Opulento, excessivo, quase barroco, magistralmente bem construído, filmado, imaginado. O realizador italiano Paolo Sorrentino recusa as comparações com o universo de Federico Fellini ("La Dolce Vita"), mas é quase impossível não pensar nesta influência. Nem que mais não seja, pela apaixonada e crítica declaração de amor que Sorrentino faz à cidade de Roma. Uma Roma exultante mas também decadente, bela mas também presunçosa e profundamente hedonista.
"A Grande Beleza" é, mais do que tudo, um título enganador. Há efectivamente muita beleza plástica que ressalta das imagens de monumentos, planos, movimentos de câmara faustosos, mise-en-scène elaborada. Mas há também muita fealdade por detrás das aparências. Porque Sorrentino desfere um duro golpe a uma certa franja fútil da sociedade romana. O estilo ostensivo dessa burguesia é arrasado subtilmente pelo olhar do protagonista, um homem de 65 anos amargurado pelo vazio da sua existência e pelas suas memórias de vida.
E o filme é sobre isso: um dissertação visual melancólica (e efusiva, como na sequência inicial da festa) sobre a condição humana contemporânea. Há muito sarcasmo pelo meio, muitos devaneios e até alguns elementos surrealistas, mas "A Grande Beleza" é feito de todo esse conjunto fascinante das coisas boas e más da vida. A banda sonora é excelente, complementa na perfeição o lado contemplativo do filme, assim como também acentua o lado mais feérico e excessivo, como na irresistível sequência inicial da festa hedonista.
