One Lap of the Web: Bugatti Aerolithe, Jaguar D-type and the Copperstate 1000Fri, 19 Apr 2013
We spend a lot of time on the Internet -- pretty much whenever we're not driving, writing about or working on cars. Since there's more out there than we'd ever be able to cover, here's our daily digest of car stuff on the Web you may not otherwise have heard about.
-- Sympatico Autos brings us video of a meticulous, period-correct re-creation of the long-lost Bugatti Aerolithe on a proper Bugatti chassis. Breathtaking work by Ontario's Guild of Automotive Restorers, which we originally detailed here.
-- It's been raining all week here in Detroit as it has in much of the rest of the country. Autoblog brings us this public service announcement showing what water can do to a road and how quickly it can take place.
-- PistonHeads takes us for a ride-along in a Jaguar D-type piloted by four-time Le Mans winner Andy Wallace. Really, you had us at "D-type."
Watch Andy Wallace take the Jaguar F-Type from 0-179-0 in this video
-- Ever wonder what it's like to travel 12,000 miles on the Pan-American Highway? Hooniverse brings us a bullet-pointed list of highlights along with some choice photography.
-- Miss the Copperstate 1000 this year? Sports Car Digest brings us a blow-by-blow account along with some gorgeous photography of the vintage rally.
