When we look for cars, we value both The Intelligence and The Space. Also, a deeply strange 2+1 seating arrangement featuring one normal seat and a bench with two seatbacks. That’s why the Matra-Simca Bagheera is the only car for us. Also, all other cars.

There was little else to the Matra MS11 than a humongous French V12 which wasn’t very good. But all the car needed was a bit of old-school French engineering. A year later the MS80, its sucessor, sailed Jackie Stewart to his first F1 title. (Photo by al_green)
