One of the stars of the Autosport show for me was a gorgeous 1970s Alfa Romeo Montreal in the Pistonheads Arena. Even in a slightly questionable shade of yellow it was still pant-wettingly desireable.

As a result I later stumbled upon this link from a little-known Michael Caine movie called the The Marseille Contract.

Of course, in reality the Alfa would have broken down - or rusted - before it reached the finish and the '70s 911 would have killed its driver and possibly a few bystanders in a sudden fit of irretrievable oversteer. It's also another rather dubious choice from the Alfa paint department, but the car still looks fantastic.
