"Nice. Congrats Nolan. He earned. He deserves James Bond is actually Nolan. But in this version, Nolan is a gadget. He is. He's a fighting robot. That Timothy Chalamet wears to fight. So Nolan is the new James Bond, but he's basically playing Timothy Chalamet his Iron Man suit. He wears a flat brim 8 O 5 the whole time. Yeah, yeah. It's a new take. It's a new take. But yeah. 8 O 5 mixed with Red Bull or monster monster. In this version, James Bond is from a task adera. Yeah. Where he mixes his energy and beer. He's never had like a fish fillet before only like fish sticks. Yeah, he's not driving an Aston Martin, I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings, but he is driving a Duramax. And it rolls so much cold. So much cool. That's the only gadget that it rolls. He's like, how do we get away? Don't worry. Yeah. There's you know how there's always like a bad guy that jumps on the car? Always. It's like not great for Nolan as Bond because 17 bad guys jump in the bed of his truck. And he has to fight like all these guys while he's yeah, but Timothy Chalamet is just like and then Nolan goes into drone mode. Flies out. Invites all the guys while Timothy Chalamet drives. You know, we'll see how this does when it hits market, but it's a big swing, man. It's a big swing. I wish him the best. I'm really proud of him. He started as an intern at donut moved up to donut hosts and now he's the fighting robot mech suit, James Bond. Pretty amazing. That will solidify his name in the history books. Yeah. What kind of gun would Nolan have? I feel like Nolan would have sawed up. Yes, thought of shotgun. But with a silencer on it? Or an AR-15? He said, oh, 3D printed this. Yeah, and also this bond is in Heath Ledger joker makeup the whole time. Yeah, that's the weird weirdest choice to me is like the green hair, purple suit. Anyway, we'll see what the traditionalists think. I feel like we've created at least three different potential spinoffs of bond in this podcast that all would be pretty fun. And in this movie, also, he goes by gym. Oh, heck yeah. Jim Bon. And that's how he says it, Jim. James Jim. James Bond, Jim bob. All right, thanks guys for listening to past gas. I hope I did a good job with Nolan out filming James Bond. He'll be back next week because the movie only takes three minutes to film. Three days to film. Jeremiah, thank you so much for guessing in. Thanks for having me. Where can we find you on social? Yeah, thanks, Jeremy. Jeremiah Burton on everything, right? That Jeremiah Burton and TikTok, silence of the lambda. That's pretty good. Yeah. They banned my other one, which was sucked my science. They wouldn't let people search for that. You know, that was good too. Science of Atlanta is kind of creepy.

"Millions of dollars. Yeah, I bought it. In June of 1997, the car was stolen from the Boca Raton airport in Florida where it was being stored. It was inside a locked hangar when someone sliced through the molding on the hangar door cut the metal latch and sniped to the alarm and snipped the alarm wires. Maybe it was James Bond himself. Wow. At the time, puglia see said he couldn't understand why anyone would steal the car. It would be hard to resell because it was one of the prop cars that included many of Connery's original spy gadgets. It's a very identifiable. The car had pop out machine guns, pop out, up and down shingles. Tire shredders, smokescreen, funnels, and a water slash oil sprayer. Basically a bunch of stuff that screams, hey, this is actually that one guy's asked the Martin that got stolen. Something was then loaded onto a cargo plane and taken out of the U.S. entirely. The thieves also seemed to have the spy car specifically in mind because the hanger included other priceless historic cars, including a roadster owned by Amelia Earhart, Amelia Earhart was known for driving cars around the world. The story gets even more wild from there. When authorities started investigating the case, some accused puglia SE of having his car stolen for the insurance money. I mean, Joe, I don't want to speak to your Italian here. It's too much, but with a name like puglia scene. Yeah, I mean, the Ponzi Ponzi is an Italian name like we're scam goddesses, dude. Why would anyone want to tell the guy? I don't know, let's go get some gravy. A clue to the current origins of the car has come from an unlikely place. A podcast hosted by famed English actress Elizabeth Hurley. Jeremiah is ex-wife. The show titled the most famous car in the world tracked down the car in the Middle East where eyewitnesses report seeing a car with matching vin numbers. According to their sources, the Aston Martin is stashed in a private collection, neither Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Kuwait, orange. Glad they were able to narrow that down to only four countries. Yeah. Is it funny? It's like, hey, people saw the vin number, which is very specific, but they remember what country they were in. Yeah. Well, definitely not Saudi. Any of those guys. We're not even going to investigate if it's in Saudi Arabia. Much like the Fast & Furious franchise cars often serve as a form of character development in the bond world, including for the bad guys. In GoldenEye, the henchwoman xenia on the top drives a Ferrari F three 55 GTS. Allegedly filming the chase scene between the Ferrari and bonds DB 5 caused over $80,000 worth of damage because of how tricky both cars were to handle, drive you through the steep, windy roads of Monaco. And it never say never a villainous known as Fatima blush drives a red Renault R 5 turbo. There is one brand, however, that is considered the batty car within the franchise. The Jaguar. It's kind of like life imitating art. In real life, there's a long running rivalry between Jaguar and Aston Martin, which makes it even more fun that it's now considered canon for Bond villains to drive Jags. Jaguar even used this in a famous marketing campaign claiming bad guys drive Jags. The baddy jag first appeared in die another day with a villain zao driving a gun equipped Jaguar XKR. It's been featured in the newest iteration of bond with many of Daniel Craig's nemeses in driving Jags inspector bond is in a chasing of being followed by a Jaguar CX 7 5, but the CX 7 5 was prototyped and never went into production. Well, it was canceled because they listened to some of its old podcasts. That jokes never gets old. They read some of its old tweets. The CX 7 5 was used in filming Specter, but Jaguar switched the electrified powertrain for a supercharged 5 liter V8 rated at 550 horsepower. They actually put a coyote engine. This fantasy car race through room chasing bonds Aston Martin DB ten. Watching this chase scene will make you wish the jag head gone into production. Oh, I wish I wish I wish. This electric Jaguar crossover made it to production. If only this one car was made, I'd be happy. But now I'll never be happy. Bond is synonymous with cool stylish thrilling. And that is exactly what Aston Martin has made their brand of cars out to be. But looking back, which came first, the car or the spy? Well, the card for sure. You can look at it. They write that down. I think it's more the question is more who saved who? The broccoli family is held under controlling shares of the Bond franchise for over 50 years. And even when Albert broccoli died, he passed his shares onto his two children. Cauliflower and cabbage. Brussels. And ran ice mine on iceberg Brussels broccoli. And broccoli family knows how to keep the Bond name thriving. I mean, they're doing a really good job honestly. Meanwhile, Aston Martin has had a rotating cast of owners and board members and been thrown into financial turmoil more than once. The two brands, Aston Martin and bond may have been run differently through the years. And they may not have always been on the same page, but one thing is true. If a franchise can last for over 50 years and become one of the top grossing film franchises of all time, while switching actors and directors, it seems like it's constant that makes the film stick. The martinis, the action, the beautiful locations, the ladies, with swimsuits and belts, and most importantly, the cars. If we went through every single car ever driven by the world's favorite spy, which is, again, cancels out the whole idea of a spy, the world should not have a favorite one. If we went through every single car driven by the world's favorite spy, we would be here for a week, but the Bond films are at their best when they rely on the classic swagger of Connery's original portrayal of the role. And a big part of that swagger comes from Aston Martin. Aston Martin knew it. Albert broccoli knew it. The fans knew it, and now it seems to be canon set in stone. Who knows what will happen when Daniel Craig steps down? Maybe we'll see a whole new bond. A modern bond, driving something totally different, but we hope not because this brand partnership is one of the original longest lasting beloved pairings in film and car history. It's the home alone and Pepsi of cars. Yeah. So big announcement, big, big announcement. I'm not supposed to say this. I don't think I'm allowed to say this, but the real reason that Nolan is not here is because Nolan is the new James Bond..

"It was also a hard top convertible. So bond could enjoy fresh air while shooting lasers. After being featured in the living daylights, Aston Martin once again got attention from consumers and IE, they got big business. The great press and increased sales got the attention of Ford, which would lead to Ford eventually buying and assuming majority ownership of Martin by 1991. The relationship between forward nest and Martin would help modernize and grow the company. It led to more models, including the DB 7. Vantage and the DB 9. Things were looking up for Aston Martin in the relationship between the automaker and the film franchise is going well. But what came next is what would solidify the relationship between Aston Martin and bond for the next several decades. The man behind the Bond film franchise broccoli. Knew what made the spy film special. And he knew the right car was key. He also knew how to market and sell a movie, which meant a lot of corporate sponsorship. In 1995, broccoli sign an exclusive product placement deal with BMW for the next three Bond movies. Oh yeah, I know this era. Yeah dude, pierce bray is neon with the Z three. No, it's not just a car for secretaries. There's a Z 8. Late as Z 8 and one of them, but they debuted the Z three in goldfinger. Oh, nice. Hop in. Halle Berry, right guys. Halle Berry. Halle Berry. Berry. Hollow, luya. Yeah, I remember it, yeah, then they saw it in half in the movie. Oh yeah, yeah. Fans were not happy about the BMW partnership. They saw Bond as the ultimate British spy and everything he touches should stay distinctly British. Even when the producers switched up cars for Roger Moore's Bond, he was still driving British cars. Bond driving a German BMW did not work for many fans. I mean, Germany bombed the out of Britain. Luckily, broccoli apparently knew what he was doing. And while having a sponsorship deal with BMW for those three movies, which all heavily feature beamers, the producers of bonds still managed to slip a DB 5 into every one of the films. They could sodden half and then it's a DB 5 underneath. And this worked out in the long run for both Aston Martin and the Bond franchise. By 2002 Ford owned Aston Martin and had the money and backing to take back the franchise from BMW. So the ultimate beamer Bond Pierce Brosnan. Finally, in a die another day, Aston Martin became the official Bond car once again. Starting with Timothy Dalton in the early 90s, asked Martin was back in the spy game. And with die another day in 2002 and Pierce Brosnan, the deal was done. Aston Martin was James Bond's car. It was also in the early 2000s the Aston Martin realized they could really market their cars and die another day was the first time since the 80s that Bond was driving a car you could actually buy granted without the lasers. I guess the DB 5 is like a classic. They did like HKS made some aftermarket lasers, I think for this car. Which is weird because they're Japanese company. Yeah, super weird. After Dalton left in our modern Bond Daniel Craig took over, the Aston Martin streak stayed. Unlike with previous Bond actor transitions, no one felt the need to change up Craig's cars. In fact, the director of Skyfall Sam Mendes brought back Connery's DB 5 to add some nostalgia to the film. That was a good choice in my mind. Oh, Skyfall was good. Yeah, Skyfall was really good. That was the one I couldn't remember. Was that the one with Javier? What are you from Florida? Caviar. Caviar. In Casino Royale, we get to see the origin story of Bond winning his original DB 5 in a poker game. Mendes even said in interviews that his love that Bond asked Martin goes way back. The DB 5 was part of my boyhood and it's part of my generation's boyhood. I had the toy with the ejector seat. I lost a little man that flew out and spent the rest of my childhood looking behind. Looking for him, then I spent the rest of my childhood looking for him behind various. You have no idea. It's so fuzzy. Look behind. But I never found the little man. Where's the little man? If anybody out there radio land is found my little man, you can email him to me. Okay, this is some creative license taken with Sam Mendes quote right there. I did literally Sam and as at Gmail. James sounded a little bit like Adam Sandler. She'd be like, oh, what a mixed with like Quentin Tarantino, but less energetic. That's a quote. Okay. Mendes brought it back full circle. And now it seemed like Daniel Craig will be driving an Aston Martin in the upcoming Bond film, No Time to Die, including you guessed it, the DB 5. I think that he's going to drive a Valkyrie at some point in that movie. Because that's the next logical set. Well, comes out today. Oh, let's go see it. We should go see it. Yeah. The company itself is doing well and we will just have to wait to see how the new Bond movie does, which this will air probably three weeks from now. So you guys probably have a better understanding. But this partnership seems to be in it for the long haul. Of course, the actual cars used for filming now have stories of their own. In 2019, one of the original Aston Martin DB 5 used for filming gold finger sold at auction for $6.4 million. These auctions and private sales happen all the time. But what about when one of these $1 million movie icons is stolen? There is one car from goldfinger that has been missing for some time. An American businessman Anthony puglia said who's an avid car collector and Bond fan bought one of the original four DB 5s. The chassis number DP two 16 slash one to be exact. Used for filming in goldfinger. In fact, it was the only one of the prop cars that still had working gadgets. He bought it for $275,000 in 1986 at a Sotheby's auction. That's actually not bad. No, it's good. In 1986, that's a little money though. Yeah. That's like before the market really presented itself. Right now, like the idea of cars selling for millions of dollars is not it's relatively new. Like the idea of investing in cars is a relatively new idea. Especially movie cars. What was that? Didn't they just sell Paul Walker's Supra? Yeah. And they went for like, I can't remember what it was. But yeah, like million.

Thank you Valvoline for sponsoring this show. It's been an honor. After this point, bond's producers and writers were determined to relaunch the franchise with an all new bond. Not your grandma's bond. A bond for the swinging 70s, groovier than the gruff bond of the 60s. This meant veering away from the classics, not only did Roger Moore smoke cigars instead of cigarettes and use a different type of handgun, he also would never drive Bond signature Aston Martin. More did get to drive some cool cars though. Again, to make bonds seem new and fresh, but still terminally British. They put them behind the wheel of a white lotus Esprit, S one. This is one of my favorite bong cars. Underwater one. The wet Nelly baby. Yeah, Elon Musk owns it. But what was happening to Aston Martin because of this parting of ways, all through the 60s, Aston Martin would get a bump in sales and marketing with every James Bond movie that came out. In fact, after goldfinger, sales of the DB 5 went way up. Aston Martin was a small company, but was able to turn out a highly respectable 1000 of the premium priced units before moving on to the DB 6. When thunderball came out and then honor majesty's Secret Service, the company got two more boosts. When more took over and Bond became more of a lotus guy Aston Martin started, hurting a little bit. In general, the 1970s were tough on boutique automakers. There's a global energy crisis new and new environmental regulations and a recession. People weren't exactly lining up to buy luxury spy cars. This combined with the loss of the free marketing from the Bond franchise men Aston Martin got into financial trouble and they were forced to sell to an investor group for only a 101 pounds in 1972, 101 pounds. What? That's like an insult. They must have had so much debt. Yeah. Dude, that's what I weigh. Just like when the F one team Bron GP was sold for £1, David Brown limited needed to offload the heavily indebted company, leading them to sell Aston Martin for only a £101. The loss of the bond partnership continued to hurt the company, and in 1975, only a few years after bin Aston Martin, David Brown limited sold to almost bankrupt Aston Martin to another group of investors. This group tried to modernize Aston Martin by introducing the V8 vantage and the convertible volante. But even this couldn't save the company and control and shares the company were sold again. This time to a British oil magnate and car enthusiast named Victor gauntlet awesome name who became chairman. Oh yeah. Gauntlet helped the company launch more products. But what he really did to help with a failing business was get the car back into the movies. You got to get back in the picture as kid. Got to get back up there, kid. That's what's kind of sad as a hot. Also, I like that the launch more products, but it's like what, like a coffee maker? We did that D list James where like Porsche makes a hookah. Porsche and Bentley make hookas. Yeah. Wow, there are thousands of dollars. When more retired as Bond after notching 7 titles in the franchise, Timothy Dalton, who looks like a poor man's British John Travolta, took over as the world's favorite British spy. And with a new bond came a new crop of cars. And yes, the studio realized that they needed to put Bond back in an Aston Martin. Timothy Dalton brought on a new era of bond and a new era of bond cars. But what made the studio want to go back to the classic Aston Martin? More was gone as Bond in the franchise was ready to get back to the classics. Dalton even said he thought Moore's Bond was a bit too campy and he wanted to play the character more grounded and real. I agree that Roger Moore bonds are so goofy. This change in Bond also meant the producers could change up the cars. No more lotus for James. Timothy Dalton in his first Bond flick, the living daylights, turbo V8 vantage, but not just any V8 advantage. It is an upgrade from Connery's DB 5 with spike producing tires missiles, lasers, signal intercepting smart radio, rocket propulsion and a built in self destruct feature. I thought all British cars came with one of those..

"Last year of of the back of winning What was then called the ability three championship but But this year and he's second ed He's he's not been the quickest in qualifying but but whenever you're watching a race is c. nova lack coming forward and then and when it gets to the second half of a racy thing right. Something's he's one of. They think something's going to happen here. And it's normally get it shows that perhaps like those graduates from Full four that we spoke about earlier that is a bit of a jump for people making that the step from the british seen fia formula three And we can only hope that beyond their rookie season. They got a second opportunity to do that. But yeah going back to seven if that's what he doesn't exchange as it might be difficult because it will be his first first season outside the pursuing But there are other consequence they can move into as well and yeah we can say british afford champions milady of twenty nine thousand and doing very well in Formerly regional this year and drives from the processing can't eventually succeed kennedy question for you because you your stats. I think this year is probably the youngest fall. Finally we got to sixteen seventeen eighteen year old. Remember having any quite as young as before his way the drivers could end up. If they don't succeed putting out and having to find themselves a proper career called twenty yes. We're seeing we're seeing drives. I mean maxa stephanie. extreme example and actually. I have made moves to make sure that doesn't happen to that extreme again with soup larson's points and things but yes i think we have. Seen drivers generally getting younger and younger younger relaxing. There's got to be a sort of minimum limit which they weren't go beyond an either debates happening now about just how young drivers shoot be when they're able to step into single seaters and but we we've seen the really top drivers. They're just so mature when they get george. Russell was incredibly immature when he when he arrived landowner which wasn't quite such a complete package but he said he jumped into the. I think they looked into the garage and they went and see. Is he actually the driver because he looked so young and he jumped in and of course he was amazing. So it just doesn't seem to as these these drives and of course they've got simulated to work. They all do their homework now. The of professionalism is very high. You know when. I was chasing only bateman detailing that he was a finalist. He couldn't get back to me not because he was at school which used to be the case because he he's in the same preparing for monza test and gun to sachsenring. So y'all all these drivers you know whether they make fun or not. They're already radio pricing very high level. And they they invariably they really it's always astounding. How well they. How well they do. I think across the two days at silverstone going back some years. Now you'll remember the final places where it was for a few years before we came back to And there was one final this. It was very quick and carried on with a career. Eight tons up full. The finals totally unprepared days racing. 'cause he hadn't really given any thought because that's how many well this is only about ten twelve years ago. I don't really have any thoughts to preparing for it And those who had prepared some little more than ring up that mates and say what are the things you should do. What do you think about what. How should the nfl. It wasn't really all this on some training and says what else 'cause it's been from a young age now. Yeah that's that's very fair. And actually i know i know. He made him as a british kimyan in that respect but he was beaten of course by somebody who did come very well prepared and he was had a very professional approach to the whole event and is gonna have a professional remote sports so yes. I think that sort of shows you that the bar is moved into all sort of ten to fifteen years for these these young guys just to sum up. Then we've got only bearman. Johnny edgar louis. Foster and zach are sullivan as our four. Farley's to twenty twenty one. They will now over the next month so be involved in a sim and fitness tests Because we and do a holistic approach the health side and the simulator sides now very important for professional drivers. So that's an element of the award and then the real for me. The real meat of of the test is the two days at silver stadium. Those three cars. It's called high pressure for those drives but hopefully hopefully they'll enjoy and then after that hopefully we'll be able to hear from each of them how they got on what they made the process ahead of the announcement of the winner on the nineteenth of december. And if you would like to hear more from them their immediate reaction. It's in the thirty september issue also magazine which also happens to be the hamilton one hundred special. We haven't talked much. About louis hampton for obvious reasons in this podcast a special issue marking his one hundred f.

"To reach and and the professional career. Is there if you if he wants a position. Your cell phone and work very very hard to together. One foreign fill on on foster before we move onto the final were funnel finalist is of course if we factor in and he actually made this point himself. When i spoke to him is that he was disappointed. The war didn't happen last year Because he was third in what was then. The bail dc three championship and quite rightly would have a corporate quite strong case to make it into the award then so given how well the finalists in recent years of don from that championship. I think that was a that was a fair point. Osceola to winners of come out of the three slash gb three which brings us nausea to the to the final finalist. Which is zakho sullivan. He's i mean. He's within touching distance of winning the three tartar with carlin and he was very close to winning the foreground last year. So i think you've probably seen qua- all of his races for me. He was one of the easier picks because of his record this year. More of a zach safe are very impressive. you make the point. Look whether it's cold bishop three oh now. Gb three that catholic. Those calls duval is by palmer. Me see Have shown themselves to be almost the ideal training ground. This isn't a bit of pr. This is the way to being over the years. This category has Traveling up some really good drivers On the way zach is The season he he won that many races. Actually anyone five races at the moment. But he's been on the podium seven times and bit like kevin novak who won the championship a couple years ago. I think he only won one race. The most to the french fries a lucky one championship by being consistent consistent consistent the the the question offered me over zack. There's no pressure raised by anything other than the way things are being the profit How's he got the ultimate pace very consistent And he does win. It was like five times. He doesn't get on the podium on those on many other occasions will he have the pace. We'll see absolutely. I was gonna say that's one of the things off most most fascinating about. Is you get these draws from the different categories and in fact just to go back to your point about the good drivers have come through. Gb three bill dc three nichols bill de cfo. Before that when it starts eight. That was the question mark we had. How did it compare to formula renault which is traditionally where the top finalists would come from. And of course. We've got the answer in our very first year with george russell who came out bodies year foreign and to no one's great surprise with hindsight in particular he was. He was very good and one and the drivers from that championship in. Its various forms of always done done very well. So i'm just to seize act now to marcus. Are you surprised at how well he's done. This year. given the british f four championship the stat from that into higher level karzi sometimes sometimes a bit tricky for people. Even the guys that do really well. Are you surprised that the zach has been so strong in two thousand twenty one. It is harder to to measure up the british drivers of the domestic same now than it was back when formula renault existed because of course we had formula. I run a k. But there was also euro cup northern european cup formula renault alps et cetera. So you can directly measure that jive is on the kc against against those from From europe when When the temperature it's came together at the same event. But going back to that guy sullivan in the step from british food. No i can't say i'm surprised. He he had a very successful first season in single aces last year in british f four. It was possibly the unluckiest way to lose the championship. i've ever seen It was a battle. We league browning who i think is a tremendously talented driver. And it was a it was a great fight between the two of them last season. And they came down to to the timing of a red flag in a in the final race and and the awarding of half points and co's paroled sack so he had enough points to win the championship and then when when the half points race he didn't say but and this year ironically it looks as it might be the most underwhelming way to finally clinch championship. Because i'm sure. I'm sure when they write the regulations with With the bonus points making up places in reverse grid races have con- anticipated a situation like this but so but he he's he's all done enough math mathematically but it depends how many entrance there offer the final round and therefore how many places you can make up from the back of the reverse grid. So he'll be he'll be sitting at home and Working out with he's won the championship when the entry list comes out at. Yeah he has done. he has very well. This season and It has being british f three as it's now called. Gb three has been quite happy hunting. Ground for For british four graduates as a very clear logical progression from from one series to the other. There i just. I'm just going to be intrigued to see what he does. In his first season out outside the uk next year and whether that's whether that's in fifa formula three or whether he goes to formula regional euro formula right now but It will be it will be very interesting is quite a step from from the uk. Same because we are out of kilter with the rest of europe at the moment. Gb three is a very indigenous class which in any other country so and we just taking control of your boulders. Yes that's good old man for another die it's interesting one and mentioned was clement novel lack. He had had a big struggle when he went. Fifa three last year of of the back of winning What was then called the ability three championship but But this year and he's second ed He's.

"Actually being becoming bill de rising stuff and he reckons. The talk of italian formula fall is actually more competitive. There was a loss of jobs. You can perhaps might not rate as front runners inside the which is the number but he would say you might say he would say this wouldn't be because he's actually Weeding more races in the italian twelve but he was that more competitive for germany. Talk well he should nice. I it depends on who you spacey. Really that my Friends at famous for the german championship is possibly a bit stronger. And but then again you you've got i mean you. You've got a point because in its italian championship. he's up against sebastian montoya and leonardo four naroda. The youngest hallion going well aren't really doing much of the german championship but then again in the german championship trump minutes. He's not focusing on the italian. Even runner-up and and several other cup lifts couple of strong french drivers as well the other thing about holidays because he's got golden inexperience the on formula fall and what began the seasons patrolman three but he's now gb three association with the all these he's done a few residents not need one once in that. So he's not unimpressive in that category as well so normally and kevin can probably confirm this formula fall. Drivers tend not to be looked at pats say interest if they're purely pull them the full as if they've done x. three shape hopeful I think only beland has helped his coals by doing those races in. He's now called. Gb three thing. We've have seen that because of the downfalls that was in the up in power quite often a formula for level driver getting into the atmosphere to car. And that's the power and downforce. They do coffin struggle a little bit there. They do get get there eventually but they usually start off a bit behind everyone else but i think the combination of the fact that always done. Yeah the probably the two best at four townships in the and the gp gp three outings. Are i think he'll probably be better prepared than than than any f- four drive that we've seen for some time. Some quite excited to see how he gets saw actually he. He did say something quite interesting to me. When i had the good fortune to ring these four drivers up until they were they were they were in the orders. Oversee always a nice thing to do and he he was pretty pretty visiast And actually very mature for sixteen as well but one thing. He said that he was looking forward to is. Actually the gt three car because when he's racing an f. four he he supports. Gt three series quite a lot. So he he gets to see them. A lot erases the molnar racing sims as well so he's caught intrigued to see a how to drive which was quite nice and also it's good for us because Although of course a lot of the award is is on the to call you know. We're looking single-seater award. As as he said before offering it's always a good test. Throw these drivers into something. They're less familiar way than i think. In if the if you think back to former winners called often the standout performance actually comes in one of the one of the other cars. Doesn't it well. I mean going back to land no race in the mercedes What was amazing He wasn't anyone go back throughout his simmons is now a judge His people in the dtm cau- was pretty impressive very impressive. I'm more recently. Tom gambles in the l. impeach recall So those 'cause certainly helped to wolves arriving the winner Even the main focus Still on friday a single superstar absolutely because acoustic also caught often good for the drivers that perhaps have other career options later. If for whatever reason they don't make it to the single seaters to have that experience in. Gt three which they're probably more professional racing drivers in three than any other catching in the world. I should think at the moment. I'm all sports. Car racing is is is a good thing to have them as well. But i'm gonna stay. Stay with you in as we move onto the next the next johnny edgar so kind of a different situation with him and this is where we have to factor in both the level of the chairmanship that we're looking at and because of the special circumstances of not having an award last year of c. Johnny edgar was affectively in similar situation. Last year all lieberman in terms of he was a real star in f- four but he's made the big league this year into foia formula three which is really two rungs up the ladder. I would say and he's had quite a tricky a tricky time but on court intrigued to see him. We were letting f. I have three rookies in. So yeah how do you. How do you write. Ed kaz loss lawsuit. A couple of seasons in the problem with this year has been tried to look at taking into account is. He started the season pretty well. It was the fifth of six saying merely racist to the fact that it's quite a jump as you say kevin to move up from formula four into the current type of april or three and The season sees to because didn't watch on this but the second half of the season he's results are really been quite cool. And we all giving in a as you've just said kevin giving in some considerable credit for what he achieved in twenty twenty. It's traditionally a very difficult thing for drivers moving straight from formula four to formula three. If you just wanna look the the absolute rule championship position statistics at johnny edgar's ended up finishing eighteenth. This season having won that german formula four championship last year last year. Dennis how and he came in as the reigning italian champion. And that we. We've we've established that italy and germany are very much on a par with their formula four championships. Dennis haga finished seventeenth last year in his rookie season out of formula four and has this year obviously gone on to To win the championship quite convincing in his second season. And what tends to happen. Is that when as young lads competing in formula four in europe there is there is very little restriction on the amount of driving. I can do they can do. They can do lots of testing. They're racing all the time Especially if they're doing by championship says As johnny ed did last year and has dennis. How did the before They then end up moving into championship. Which is incredibly tightly controlled on the amount of mileage you can do very very little testing You guys who race weekend and you've got one relatively short free. Practice session straightens qualifying where you'll suddenly tailing with tires that i only have a peak of of one or two laps. It's an incredibly tough thing to do that. The the standout driver who who actually mastered that in recent seasons taper share. Actually he was the he was the german champion in two thousand nine c. And then and obviously start very much last year in his rookie. fifa threes. but i but i but to go back to the. I don't think that we can write off a driver based on a rookie season. Nfl af three. And the the only thing we can Anything we can hope is that they They got the support. Which in johnny cases obviously Red bull to continue for a second season and and really show is what they can do that and the other thing is obviously johnny has spent the season with colleen who much is there a powerhouse across the general single seater industry. I think calling would probably be the first to admit that that. I haven't had the success in in that champ that championship that That they would expect in other series and Certainly since faa formula three began in its current form in in two thousand nineteen They they haven't really had good results. They looking back to the previous era of Gp three and of course. I took alex lynn to the hartland. Twenty fourteen so the team hasn't had the form recently you then. Unlike colin in formula two or formula four that there are other programs they are going to be top of the that the pecking order driver market. Those days dr guys primary iot et cetera. So it's kind of a vicious circle just by way of explanation To the point about the eligibility somebody who's racing three We said anybody who is in his first seasonal half a season in current fica promo remains eligible. And that's how john givers. He's eligible Whether we're getting the favorite facilitation if they've ability us here's another method but we don't carry into a second year so Join me for example. Wouldn't be eligible In twenty twenty two and but he's eligible this year despite having moved up into his something much more powerful than the old two liter after because which is where we find you the euler formula because yes which does bring us on the nas lead to the the next list but before do move onto that just want to also probably worth pointing out that we do where possible also speak to a team managers and people involved in did derek word experts at two trevor. Carly new is very fair and honest. About where their car sits tobacco marx's point they know they're not running the front of f f three and he he he rates.

Thanks as you say Covering the that my little worn out after To back backed about weekends one of which was almost in norway croft but But yet Been been following. The to single seaters is as closely as can This season and i seem previous seasons so very very interested to see what happens absolutely and actually as a highlight of my season so we can start with. Start with you ian. It was fairly recently the we had our our big meeting where we go. All the judges together. Warrick is the is the chairman of the judges. But we've got a good panel of experienced judges as well so he could you just give us a bit of insight into how we choose the fondness and what you're looking for when when you put your four four favorites forward well let me come into the twos and really we have a long and then the shoulders. The long is ten. We look various single two categories which is the focus. Single seat racing. This this is all about and therefore we're not really looking at drivers. Doing well in touring cars. So marcus ole kiki racing all germs in each is essentially about single-season drivers these days that quite the choice that no long distance categories right formula reynaud from the vauxhall and so on and form a literally east debate we all choice and also because of the effects of both Brexit's ann's kobe.

You include two hundred thousand pounds which quite useful for the drivers stepping up to another another the next step. So let's start with stopping marcus with the with the first driver only bearman. Who obviously we've not been able to see very much in the uk Sixteen year old. But he's leading both the italian and german formula ford championships which are probably the two strongest series that that level would you say tightly. It has been that way really since since. Fyi formula four began that german and italian championships have a lot of the teams that we say at higher levels of of european single seat racing you'll be primers and your financial racing's etc. Funnily enough awful. Paradoxically might say that. The italian championship has the numbers thirty cars plus for each around. The german is we can numeric a probably about sixteen to eighteen is regarded as the bull competitive because they use the saying tattoo chassis. The same engine saint ties It's relatively simple thing for the for the competitors him one championship to go into another and that has happened over the over the past few since two thousand fifteen when the german championship came onto the scene. The italian was the first firefox championship that began in two thousand fourteen until now. Nobody has actually won both championships in the same year. Wake up alabama and leading leading both championships Second year at the chairman series. Last year he came in in twenty twenty and the intention originally was for him to car testing program along with them the final year of his karting career but he actually ended up racing in the german f four championship instead with the us racing the team of ralf schumacher gerhard google.

Forty nine points in the german and both the Championships the runner up is the same guy as well. It said tim tremendous young. German driver and trumpets isn't doing the italian rounds. Sabine a little bit easier for bearman there but the seasons being tremendous for him the same really really write him. The team love working with him as well. They say he reminds them Personality wise he reminds him of kalomo. Who the team running the european three championship in two thousand sixteen. And we know what a lovely young chap. here's so Sussex recommendation and hey just seems to be taking the boxes and winning a lot of races. I it's mutating last friday.

THUNDERBALL - Pre-Title Sequence Decoded
"Sean connery and the gun. Barrel iraqi jet pack a fake funeral. James bond punching a woman bonds french connection cryptic latin inscriptions. That's on a chapel wall water cannons shooting the bad guys from the aston martin db five and of course a fight. These are some of the things will examine as we look into the pre title sequence in the one thousand nine hundred sixty five james bond. Movie thunderball hi. This is dan sylvestry. Tom izzo and spy movie navigator dot com. Please join us as we're cracking the code of the pre title sequence in thunderball. So let's go. We see for the first time in the gun barrel. It's not bob. Simmons the stunt guy. It's sean connery goldfinger. It's fun and from this point on. We are actually going to see bond in the pre title sequences in the gun barrel and not a stunt man one a concept they needed to change the clip here as the aspect ratio for thunderball change from the previous movie so they couldn't reuse the clip that they had from the prior movies. One thing we haven't mentioned yet in our pre title sequence podcast series the origins of the gun barrel. We have mentioned the prato secrets in the nineteen. Thirty four million chrome passion in an earlier podcast. But we haven't yet talked about the ending to the nineteen th remove eight the great train robbery which ends with a gunman pointing the gun. View and firing. Some people think stain also influenced the golden barrel sequences that these things were around decayed and decades before bond was even written. So that's kind of cool and it actually is and then when you hear about how it was made it sound like it might have been in the back. Somebody's mind but when morris bender put that together he was just playing around and said. Hey if i shoot through this gun. Barrel i can do this. Pretty cool stuff. We had mentioned the pre tuchel secrets in the nineteen thirty four movie crummy that passion in an earlier podcast. We've seen in the first three. James bond ian production movies two circles that cross the screen and by the way. I have always thought those were the double. Oh that's just my take on it. I don't know it looks like it should be the double o but you're in thunderball when the gun barrel ends the gun barrel finally more to the first seen in the pre title sequence it doesn't just fade out like it did in the other movies it actually shows us part of the first seen within the gun barrel. First time this has happened. So this is kinda neat. This is cool and a great addition to the series and the circle shows the initials here j. b. and as the camera pans backwards it shows. Jb's blazoned on a casket. What again for about twenty seconds. We must think this is james bond dead again. It's the fourth movie by anne productions and his dead again in the beginning they just love killing them off right at the beginning of the movie. Yeah we remember from russia with love. Of course it wasn't him. It turns out but wow i don't know this makes me queasy and i don't know what to do because bonds debt already and i'm thinking wait a minute. There's another twenty one movies. How can this be. We know that. Now we're back then back then you didn't know it so there are some advantage the being in the future but this makes me queasy. I got bonded out on. This makes me want to have a separate coffee. Because i gotta wake up here. 'cause bonds dead. I'm just too nervous. Hang on oh. Hey we find a delicious coffee for you. By the way i mean. This is spy coffees and you can find them at spy coffees dot com and our listeners. Get twenty percent off with roast. Like spymaster dark rose or double agent medium. Rose which.

Av and you'll get twenty percents off at checkout all right. let's get back. I think i'm awake. We see as a funerals ending in the small beautiful french chapel. James bond on this inside balcony speaking with a woman who turns out to be his french six connection. I'm pleased to create. Is a lighter setting for these pre title sequence. Of course last two films been set at night giving a dangerous about ding atmosphere. This one feels more normal more inviting the viewer into a lot lighter feeling except it's a funeral the funeral the funeral with j. b. on it was really for jacques pouvoir who was specter number. Six who bond reveals murdered two of his colleagues. Now i'm wondering what is james bond doing at jack. Bu vars funeral it makes me wonder why a healthy. Why is he there. Now we don't offer killed to double o. agents or colleagues. Perhaps from the cia or the french bureau. Those french contact who's credited as mademoiselle the port says at least you've been saved. Air filter removing passed away. And you sleep so they told me it comes out. The bond is disappointed. He didn't get the kelham himself to son disappointed. You didn't killing meal such move on murder two of my colleagues. So maybe i'm listening to this thing too and i'm thinking maybe the french contact just told us what bond is doing there. In france he was going to kill ovar and maybe move are found out in states. This whole thing or something. I don't know yeah. If this is but buddha's funeral it looks to me like somebody beat onto it. She says he may have died in his sleep. But given that this is somebody bond was going to be going after. I kinda doubt that somebody probably be to it.

"To kind of reset the clock to go back to one of the most iconic 'cause to come out of new, not before Gt and you must have forget that the lights are stirling. Moss drove the car in its very first race unwanted silverstone. That's right is a true icon. It was a Ferrari two fifty competitor. It was absolutely remarkable thing explained to our listeners. What makes the GT a little different than the standard DB Four? Okay, so so from the standard day before it shorter. Heat, the lightweight cars, which was what twenty five continuation Cosworth as well so they had I let him. Very thin gauge aluminium an has a twin plug head and coverages that decreases the performance, so you're absolutely was a call to go and come back the rise of Ferrari in gt racing at the time. It's a car that because they're seventy five over the original cause. became a real icon and many of the of the great names in automotive, and also in show business owned before GT's. Pizza sellers is most favored cars, and the only for many many years. He had some great cars. Indeed short it. The serial numbers are important with those cars, and you're working off a group of essentially unused Vince is that correct? But what happened was full homologation purposes. We should have actually built one hundred t before tease, which we actually built seventy five. I guess because we we probably struggled to sell them because they're quite expensive at the time. And if you group together, there's a goal. Goal toes and the project cars, and and a few other bits and pieces. He actually comes to one hundred cars, but we want you to make these twenty-five GT's. It really should be made in the first place and we. We continued the chassis numbers from the last car and I'm pleased to say that actually in your country USA. They absolutely took this car to their hearts. We probably could have so little twenty five calls into the US market because you seem to really love new Okaz. To have your own GT built from from scratch, you know well, it would be a dream. Come true for anyone who have the resources to actually afford end before thrown on enough to acquire one, I would imagine the ultimate dream would be to have the original an example of the original, and then to have a brand new example sitting side by side, and may be to customers around the world that have done exactly that. Without putting to find a point on it. What was the production cycle like I presume all of the cars are sold in happy homes. How do you sell a car like that I mean. Is there a fixed price as they're waiting list? How does it work? Yeah, so we had a price, and then we had no list. I mean the COBB was one point, five million pounds plus taxes plus. Plus options so as you match mostly 'cause on closer to two million pounds, and that's about half the price of original. Is that correct? Yes, it is yes, yes, but obviously. When we did TV full GT, you have to understand. This was a real leap of faith on the mountain's part, because nobody that point Thomas ever built twenty-five continuation, causing certain Ob David Soda Continuation Call this price point. That's right, so we were really caught going at this in a major way, and we put a terrific resource behind this program as well so he took some really great engineers guidance I lead that team and we use huge amounts of digital scanning techniques. We found calls that were in bits. We scan loss of chassis and found loss, but normally we pulled out over five hundred original drawings, as well from our archive, and we kind of overlaid that and we found anomalies all the way through where we found that actually the chassis being changed on production, but the drawings had never actually been updated and. That kind of things, and not at all unusual for small volume manufacturers of the period Italy or Germany and it's all the same I mean these were essentially more salute. Yeah, you think we be seventy five calls I. Really don't period of time and there's about seven or eight different. Of DB Ford Gt because they to build a minute slightly ad hoc basis. So when we built Debbie Ford Gt we wanted the conic model into the earliest body shape with large scoop and the cathedral relight soon found silly things like the chassis. We scan at a slight left hand kink in them, which strains the probably the they were made. She wasn't true in the first instance Oh we took that out. We actually had. The chassis manufactured off site. Race car company, and they will to an incredibly high tolerance at she set for the so high that actually it's a higher tolerance than have a modern production car, and it's actually about the same as a race car, so that's the kind of in-depth analysis that we went to. When we sat down Richard Sets of what the chassis had to meet. The engineer looked at me and laughed and I said I'm not joking gentlemen. This has to be the very best before. Before GT, estimated of the made, and I'm pleased South we actually chief that and we surpassed most of our customers expectations. We if I didn't know any better. I'd say that under price the car by about two third I can't imagine the to moneymaking proposition, but certainly one that quite laudable, and I imagine years from now there'll be a lot of people very thankful. At least cars exist I. Mean we have to remember the you know until the twenty first century. Century these were just sort of old used cars. It was possible for a person to buy a DVD for a DB five back in the seventies or eighties, and he was probably a guy who did all of his own work at a lot of ways. These cars are lucky to have survived in many ways i. mean you're absolutely right. I, probably shouldn't give this away, but I've been.

We to here go way way beyond what you would find in a what normal restoration shop and I'm sure in many ways really go far beyond what the cars might have presented as new, even understanding that certain methodologies and panel gaps and things of tolerances have changed from the fifties and sixties. That's a very very good point. You're absolutely right. You know when we look at the restorations that we put us today and the quality of the fit the finish of the finished article it is to be fair way beyond where the cause where the nineteen fifties and sixties and we do employ load of modern techniques. Will you read my mind? The reputation for craftsmanship in? In the U. K. especially when it comes to panel-beating is matched by non except well, the Italians might argue with you, but certainly mastering the English wheel as an art and a law start and I guess I gather. You've got some craftsman there. Who are masters of that? Yeah, absolutely I mean we have a fantastic makes of people in the panel shop. Now from apprentices be a four percents in the panel, Shilpa learning those skills, so we actually transition skills to a new generation, so the next forty fifty hundred years. You still be able to come back to ask Baltic works, and have you will defy restored in the traditional way, and it's really and it's really really. Really important to me and business here that we transitioned these skills in the panel shop here, the trim shop in paint onto this next generation, so that we can show the future and the succession of this business going forward fantastic will that is exciting stuff. Let's get back into the restoration of one of the old cars. Though I noticed something quite interesting on your website, it talked about a fixed price restoration, which many of our listeners who have restored cars. No, it can truly be a bottomless pit, voracious beasts that needs to be fed over and over and over again, and the notion of having fixed end in sight must be very appealing concept for your customers. It felt to us like exactly the right thing to do for the Burris. What we don't do is keep going back bad news. And it never leaves you with restorations. You won't pick a bit. You find a bit more than you. Pick it won't. It's even worse. We looked at was the actual process, and the time that we employ in doing for restoration and the actual process we go through every single call is exactly the same, and so we take the body off of the chassis whether the jewel chassis itself has got a little bit more corrosion, a little bit less corrosion to be honest, the rule within a smidge of each other, whereby only a few hours difference and the process of building a new body panels, trimming painting and putting the electric architecture and the. Rebuilt the engine gables all that is a pretty standard Soku time, so we were able to take mean average and say right, that is the price of a full restoration and that way. Everybody knows that the forest race they get his a complete restoration for body off, and you not get the best restaurant on estimates in anywhere else in the world. That is fascinating so what you talk about a frame off our. Our body off a nut and bolt restoration. That's what someone gets from. Aston Martin on the old occasion. One of our restore caused comes onto the open market. It does come on quarter premium because we have a waiting list restorations, and because the restoration takes almost two years to complete, there are people out that actually want to wait. They will pay a premium for democracy works stored call. How many folks are actually? There in the restoration group, so the restoration part of the business is actually integrate the main nestor. Mata works business, so we deployed the Labor in a very agile, very efficient manner, but normally I would say that a restoration involves about sixty people from within the business, unlike most restoration Schultz. We have specialists in every department, so we have handled Betas. We have tremors with electrical architecture people. We have fits etc. what you don't get you get people doing everything. These guys are really really highly skilled. I'll let you the best in the business, so the guys that do the trim because trim onsite which you gain is very unusual for restoration business. So let me ask you a question for instance Paul, if I've got a silver, birch and black DB five and I decided WanNa paint it a sunshine yellow with Purple Interior. Will you do that? Yes, of course will amicus emotional person. You might, you might gently dissuade when he if possible. We certainly have a very long conversation with. You we do have on occasions was H me. And how on earth can you do complete vandalism and I said well quite simply south wanted time. It'll come back to new book turn back into being, silver, Birch, with, Black Bill. The Cherry that way. Though that's great, that's great. That's great, but in terms of accurate end period correct restorations you typically I would imagine take a fairly conservative track with your car's yeah. I mean have three at the moment. A lot of people want to restore the 'cause back to original. Because again that haunts is value and I mean when you talk about the detail, go into, and we even have commonly brothers actually great. The original highlights from the ritual Carlos game, so we use Promo. Hide within the restoration costs. Look that she smell right we. She's also incredibly important. That's fantastic and I was gonNA. Ask You about that. Whether another Conley hides were available in your right. Nothing quite smells like a British interior. Maybe it is hides, or the glues or good heavens knows what, but they are absolutely unique taste, completely different tanning process, so as you probably wear you know. A molten lead of in a multi multi car has to be has delisting property as fire, retardant properties, etcetera and the old leathers didn't have that which he smells like leather, not like glued to. That again is when you think about it when you open the door and you get into an acid, Martin with DB DB five, it absolutely assaults the senses it assaults, all three senses, the look the smell, and then you fired up the sound of the whole call. It's a flora experience. There's no doubt about that. There's something about that straight six engine. What A BIG MONSTROUS LUMP! That thing is I mean there's no straight six quite like it. And it certainly endured for a great amount of time, established a great reputation, not just on the road, but on the track as well absolutely, and of course we're now remanufactured engine again for the continuation calls for before Gt. Now for DB five Goldfinger. and. Oh, I, WANNA. Talk all about those you know. Maybe we should jump into that. Let's talk about your continuation cars. The certainly the before gt is a great car in the history of Aston Martin I had a chance to drive one of those I'm fantastic and occasional, actually driven to the DB GT ZA gatos no to seem to be alike and boy. You talk about the handling priceless artifacts in almost since shivers up my spine. And the fact that you're actually able to create a brand new Ford Gt with metal. It was forged in twenty twenty one. That's an amazing thing is quite a journey. When we started on DVD, four G., T. said before we had this idea of restarting production at Eupol Pack No. Clearly. We couldn't do a modern because it's a relatively small site and caused Donna Gate in a very very efficient way..

The Blue Jays are entirely all of Major League Baseball. We could just play into different country and I'm sure. A lot of players would be more willing to play in New Zealand than they would be in a place like South Korea so. I'm. I'm still saying that. You move the season to not New Zealand. You can play with fans. You don't have to do all these restrictions you could. Play for however many games, and I'm sure. Lots of fans will come to the Games there in new. Zealand, so you get fan revenue. I'm saying a good plan, but in terms of plans in agreements I hate to talk about it because it's just so annoying to say the same thing every single week on this podcast, but. Players Association Major League Baseball going back and forth again now Major League Baseball has proposed a seventy game season with think it's eighty percents or seventy percent prorated salaries. Which I should note is the exact same amount of money. The players would be getting if they're playing fifty games so I don't know why they wanNA play seventy games. They're just increasing their risk, not just from the pandemic, but also injuries and at the same time they're. They're they're making the same amount of money so. It's so frustrating so frustrating. You actually took my point because I was looking at that in terms of the pay, but I'm GonNa start things off before it gets to that and say Commissioner Rob Manfred I know you're listening, but you know from my perspective and from Reynolds Richards Perspective which we saw last night. It's time to not waste any more time. Implement the 48-game season because it is not happening I'm gonNA guarantee it now. There will be no agreement between the owners and the players. I think it's a netting. We're beating around a dead Bush now and I think you're only wasting time on the calendar, and in terms of a start date I think the earliest are looking at now July fourteenth, so that's what a month and a day away, and this is something that is. Is going to have to do players want prorated salaries I'm not gonNA talk about this too much because we know they. One hundred percent paraded salaries, the owners continued to not offer that.

Could Electric Motors Save Classic Cars?
"Crate. Motors and conversion kits are becoming popular options for breathing new life into classic classic cars and the latest options are a little different as in there now available in electric. That means that if you have a classic car you'd like to convert to an electric vehicle. You know have choices in the United States. Such an idea might be a novelty only for the most serious car collectors. But in Europe several cities are discussing or implementing lamenting plans to reduce or prevent gas and diesel powered cars from entering their city centers so converting a classic visa to electric power could be justified as a practical move. ooh rather than than indulgence but before we get to that first. Let's back up and take a look at exactly what a crate motor is a crate motor or crate. Engine gets its name because it's complete brand new engine delivered in a crate. It's designed to make swapping out or upgrading. An old engine relatively easy. You still need. The mechanical skills is to perform the work or the money to pay someone. But you don't need to worry about salvaging the engine from another car and you won't discover broken or missing parts while you're in the middle of the installation job. Bob Crate. Motors are especially popular for race cars and hot rods. If you have a classic or vintage car that you'd like to actually get running so you can drive it and you have some cash despair. An electric vehicle. Conversion might be the way to go electric motors and power. Trains have simpler designs than gas diesel powered engines which means installation and maintenance. This is easier to as long as you or shop in. Your area is familiar with the work. Electric drive trains can also offer advantages in Torque and power and in the end and the car will run much cleaner. Some auto manufacturers are so enthusiastic about the possibility of converting their classic cars to electric. They're offering ways to upgrade great them in fall of two thousand nineteen for instance. Volkswagen unveiled its factory conversion program and showed off its own project converted nineteen seventy-three Super Beetle to generate interest. The Superbowl was displayed at the twenty. Nine thousand nine Frankfurt Motor show and sported some exterior modifications as well including a tail. Light design from older Beatles specially fitted to conceal the cars electric charging port the standard cooling vents were also removed as. They're no longer needed. The conversion used an electric drive one speed gearbox and battery system based on the new VW Yup Electric car and was completed by the Germans specialist company e classics Thomas Small Member of the board management of Volkswagen group components said in a press release the electrified beetle combines. The charm of our classic car with the mobility of the future innovative e components from Volkswagen Group components are under the Bonnet we work with them to electrify stoically. Important vehicles in. What is an emotional process? We are also providing beetle owners with the professional conversion solution using production parts of the highest quality for now though that's only available in Germany as the conversion is completed by e classics sneer stood guard. Aston Martin and Jaguar both announced similar programs in two thousand eighteen and the Porsche. Three fifty six is also a possibility but VW's as program probably has the most mainstream appeal simply because so many Beatles were built over the car's lifetime. Volkswagen also says that electric microbus conversions are in the works. EXC prices vary widely and few suppliers of electric vehicle. Conversions are openly willing to disclose those prices. Because it will often vary by vehicle and complexity of the project as reported by the verge. California based companies can charge as much as one hundred thousand dollars for conversion in people who joined the waiting lists now may wait at least a couple of years before their cars completed as with anything that affects automotive culture. There are always dissenters the International Federation of historic vehicles or fever. We're in on the trend and said that any gas or diesel powered vehicle refitted with electric is no longer considered historic. Because it's been significantly altered. Fever prefers hers vehicles as original as possible though this stance makes sense on the surface. There are some well reasoned counter points for example if a classic beetle is reworked as the EV using a kit designed supplied by. Volkswagen shouldn't the fact that the original automaker had a hand in the project count for something. What about cases in which an easy conversion is the only possible or practical way to get a car back on the road? Isn't that better for car culture than letting it rotten a field. We spoke by email with Eric. Hutchinson the founding partner of electric. Gt a California based provider of E v Crate Motors. He said certainly there are collectibles. That should remain preserved collectible oh end untouched but of all vehicles produced from the nineteen twenty s to nineteen eighties. There's ample opportunity to honor the heritage and keep more on the road well into the future with modern driveability Hutchinson says many of electric. Gt's customers own modern vs alongside their classic projects and aren't typically worried about the effect on their cars collector value. He explained they're investing more into the actual restoration and upgrades to complement the investment of the conversion. There's a big value you on usability and driveability.
