Behold: an extremely well preserved 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale Coupe – one of 46 remaining examples of a lightweight, 1.8l, all-wheel drive, turbo and supercharger-equipped chunk of auto-angularity designed solely to win the fractious Group B World Rally Championship, which it did in 1986 before being banned from competition by the FIA.

Spoilsports.

Price on request.

Behold the cute ’n’ chunky 1975 Fiat Campagnola 1107 SUV – first introduced in 1951 and based on American jeeps left by the US military after WW2, it’s as stripped-back and no-nonsense a runaround as any of its better-known backroads brethren.

Yours for a trifling €14,800.

For all drag race fans. I created a print that also acts as a board game based on the many challenges and quotable moments from RuPaul’s Drag Race.  Made as a  print for Gallery 1988’s Idiot Box show opening tomorrow night and for sale Saturday afternoon online. The exhibit is around the theme of the most influential tv shows from the last ten years. Dice not included.
