Nov 22 2016 : The Economic Times (Bangalore)
Car with a past gets cloned at $1.5 million apiece
Bloomberg


A look into how Jaguar rebuilt its XKSS Supercar, a collectible and a legend from 1957
Jaguar's new supercar has been 60 years in the making. Don't expect paddle shift, ABS, or even the luxury of electric windows -as well as a vintage look, the XKSS has vintage features to boot.
It's technically a `continuation car', a special type of replica in which production ceased but has since restarted using original designs and methods (like this Superformance MKII Slab Side Cobra or Jaguar's own Lightweight E-type). The original XKSS was made for the US market as a road-going conversion of the Le Mans-winning 1954 D-type, until a fire ripped through Jaguar's Browns Lane factory in 1957.As a result, only 16 were ever made out of the total 25-car production run.

Unsurprisingly, the cars that survived fetch a pretty penny these days. Steve McQueen owned one that's estimated to be worth up to $30 million.

According to Kev Riches, engineering manager for Jaguar Classic, a branch of the company that focuses mostly on refurbishment and maintenance of classic Jags, the XKSS project is all about replacing the nine vehicles lost in the fire. “It's almost about re-creating a piece of art,“ he said.

The team at Jaguar Classic used original drawings and supplemented them with modern tech, such as scanning the car to build 3D models to aid fabrication using retro, authentic methods. Steel and aluminum panels were hand-rolled on English wheels as they would have been in the 1950s. Some nuts were even reproduced because they can no longer be bought.

“It was about building that perfect car to the period specification, in the period way as much as possible,“ said Riches.

Under the hood, the XKSS has a 3.4-liter straight six-cylinder engine with 262hp. The company says everything from the wood of the steering wheel to the leather of the seats and the brass on the dash is exactly as it would have been in 1957, with only minor changes made for 21st century safety requirements.

The nine cars due to be built sold out almost immediately to a selection of international buyers. Riches estimates each model to have sold for around $1.5 million.

"Unravelling memories on the road"
Deccan Herald 29-11-2016

A true blue Bengalurean, 75-year-old S Jayaram Reddy remembers driving around Bengaluru in the 60s and 70s in his 1960 Fiat 1100.


“I would get dropped to school in these cars. The Fiat always grabbed the maximum attention because of its rare colour. The gold and beige colour combination Fiat was launched in 1960. We have retained the original colour. Only the roof of the car has been painted in maroon,” he informs.

Dec 06 2016 : The Times of India (Bangalore)
Now a heritage park for vehicles that served the Indian Army
Bengaluru
TIMES NEWS NETWORK


Not just decorated men and animals, the Indian Army now has a memorial -Motorised Transport (MT) Heritage Park -to showcase some of its prized vehicles.
The Army Service Corps Centre and College (ASC) that houses the memorial has already acquired five vehicles -a Willys jeep, Jonga, the one-tonne truck, a Tata Mercedes truck and the Shaktiman truck, and is in the process of acquiring more decommissioned vehicles.

Lieutenant General SPS Katewa, commandant, ASC, said: “Many of these old vehicles have been auctioned. We are trying to acquire them and bring them to the memorial.“ Among the vehicles at the memorial, the Willys is completely restored and functional, while the others have a functional engine.

Major General NS Raj Pu rohit, the deputy commandant, had told TOI on Friday that the memorial was planned to not just keep samples of old vehicles, but also to remember and celebrate their service to the nation.“From the coasts to the hills, these vehicles have helped transport troops and ration, equipment and arms. Their service needs to be remembered,“ he had said.

On Monday , TOI visited the ASC Centre and got a glimpse of the gruelling training schedules that the personnel have to follow and all the other aspects of a soldier's life at the centre. From obstacle training to firing , the campus was abuzz with activities. “This is how we are every day . People often think that a posting in a peaceful station like Bengaluru isn't challenging, but here we prepare for war every day . And we are keeping the Army prepared too,“ said one of the officers.
