Rolls-Royce and Bentley (pre-war) exhaust cut-out lever warning plate.  English law did not permit the use of an exhaust cut-out, but it was OK on the Continent!  This plate surrounds the lever on the front center floorboard which controls the exhaust cut-out mechanism on pre-war Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars.  If your Rolls-Royce or Bentley has an exhaust cut-out, it is probably missing this plate.  In over 50 years in the hobby, I have never seen another one for sale.  When new it was usually painted black with red lettering.  I would suggest restoring this plate with new black and red paint, or polishing the steel and touching up the red lettering.  Other antique English automobiles may also have a cut-out lever which this plate may fit.  Size: 3 1/4 inches (8.3cm) high, 3 inches (7.6cm) wide.  The opening for the lever is approx. 1 5/8 inch (4.1 cm) x 5/8 inch (1.6cm).  I am not a dealer - just cleaning out my years of collecting.  Please contact with any questions or regarding international shipping.  Also please look at my other items currently listed on eBay.  Thank you.

In the eighties, General Motors-owned Isuzu was fairly successful, but it was suffering from a ‘plain' brand image. To gain recognition, it presented a series of concept cars such as the COA, COA III and Costa but the most effective was the stunning 4200R. Presented at the 1989 Tokyo motor show, the 4200R's graceful proportions and curvy volumes were highly acclaimed by the public and the press.

Audi are bringing the S5 Sportback to Frankfurt The S5 Sportback gets Audi’s 3.0 litre supercharged lump putting out 329bhp and delivering 324lb/ft of torque. Which will give the S5 Sportback performance of around 5.2 seconds to 60 mph. This change from big V8s is a shame, but it does result in better economy – estimates for the S5 S/B are pushing on 30mpg – and the reduced emissions help car makers like Audi lower their average emissions, and important consideration these days.

The Delta Motorsport E-4 is the outcome of three years of research, design and development that is key to a new generation of British ingenuity. Fifteen years ago, if asked to think about the low-volume sector of the British motor industry, the Rover V8 and tubular steel space frames would immediately have come to mind, along with a sizeable dose of fiberglass. Today a new wave of companies are exploring new and ingenious manufacturing, design and technologies.
