Amid the bustle and hubbub of a popular Riviera restaurant, a baritone burble rises through the floor, vibrating up high, elegant heels and tapered table legs to resonate around the rims of thin-stemmed wine glasses.
Angry pops and crackles from the street outside are followed by a final ear-splitting bark that sees food spill from silver forks and a waiter, weaving through the startled diners, drop an unopened bottle of Biondi Santi onto unforgiving terracotta tiles.

WHEN IT COMES TO CARS, RACING DEFINED THE 20TH CENTURY.
The sport laid out the state of the art, pushed us and the machine beyond what we thought possible.
To celebrate this magazine’s 70th anniversary, we chose three pivotal decades in both R&T history and motorsport — the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. We selected three manufacturers that made their bones racing in those eras, companies whose balance sheets are now largely dependent on a vehicle unlike any pure-bred track car: the heavy, thirsty SUV.
We chose a vintage race car from each manufacturer, plus … More
