Legendary 1930s Alvis heads back into 'production'

This is a simply glorious story; the marrying of vintage style with current technology and a new lease of life for a classic design. This is not just any old replica - a fabricated shell clothing the modern mechanicals of a newer car - this is an altogether different proposition and one that I hope we will see more of. I can't imagine what it will be like to drive a car such as this - first designed over 70 years ago but now re-imagined using CAD and the latest engineering advancements - surely the ultimate combination of old and new complete with the advantages of both and the drawbacks of neither.

I congratulate the new owners of Alvis for undertaking this endeavour and wish their "new" car every success. Here's to more of the same sort of thing.
