amilcar cgs – detlef kayser’s duval coupé

The sporting Amilcar CGS voiturettes of the mid-1920s were renowned for their pretty open coachwork. The Duval fixed-head coupé is less well-known, but was especially attractive. Detlef Kayser has recently completed a meticulous restoration of this ultra-rare survivor. Here we see the car in action, together with an interview with its owner.

 

berkeley’s barchetta – a Royal Enfield-powered B95

The Berkeley was a tiny, front-wheel drive sports car built by British caravan manufacturer from 1956 to 1960. Its pert looks and cheeky performance set it apart from other low priced hybrids of the time. Our publisher drove and wrote about one of the first examples in 1958, and in the July issue of The Automobile re-acquaints himself with the marque in the form of an immaculate Royal Enfield-powered B95.
